It was foreseeable, in any case, it was not ruled out, that independence in Catalonia has been gaining increasing political presence as the contradictions and weaknesses of the State have become more acute.
It was foreseeable that the rise of intransigent independence movement has reactivated a Spanish nationalism as a shock response.
It was logical to think that sooner or later Catalonia would be disputed by radical and extreme ideologies. Both are political rupture projects; some with Spain and the other, paradoxically, breaking with Catalonia, without which you cannot build that united and longed Spain.
What was not predictable was the fact that many Catalans are not related to either of the two blocks.
What was not foreseen in the independence script is that a large number of Catalanists reject the deterministic thesis that establishes declaring independence as the only solution to face the future of Catalonia.
Unforeseen Catalonia is one that wants to overcome the tragic idea of having to choose between them. It is the one that refuses to fall and let itself be dragged by the scenarios of tension radicals are building, tragic proposals for the Catalans.
The unexpected Catalonia is formed by the Catalans who want the best for Catalonia but not at the price of destroying social cohesion, of drawing winding roads marked by violence to achieve political objectives or of breaking unilaterally with Spain.
Unforeseen Catalonia has resisted more than ten years the continuous and organized radical propaganda based on pointing people as good or bad. Its position is clearly equidistant from radical positions and openly committed to those who think that the necessary reforms required by Spain are necessary.
