Watch the footage or see photos of today’s pro-referendum rallies in Barcelona and you’ll wonder whether it’s spring break.  That you become your enemy, meaning, in this case, there’s no being anti-nationalist without becoming a nationalist yourself, is apparently lost on these kids, cynically manipulated by their elders.  This is exactly what happened in Yugoslavia.  Are these numbskull millenials with the Catalan flag painted on their cheeks going to take responsibility if things get ugly in Spain?
