Every autonomous region has, to some degree, his own culture. That's why they are an autonomous region.
Three other have their own language.
That doesn't necessarily make them different from Spain. The whole point of the autonomous regions is to acknowledge their differences while also being part of a Nation.
Culture is, however, a requisite by international law to be considered it's own Nation (other two being people and territory), so every independentist movement needs to back it up with some sort of unique identity that separates them from the rest.
I believe it's just a mean to be independent, not a real reason for the independence.
So you have the second in command at the catalonian government publishing papers on how, genetically, catalonians are different from spaniards, and closer to french people.
This whole thing is just an economic problem. Catalonia WAS the region with most GPD, before companies fleed this last week in fear for the independent movement (Money tends to escape from places that do not follow the law).
Catalonia is indeed the second most underfunded region considering how much they contribute (again, considering that, but they are still one of the most funded). But again, Madrid is even more underfunded, and 2 other regions are underfunded too.
But that's how taxes work: The more you gain, the more you contribute.
Now, what it's been omitted this whole time is that Catalonia is the most indebted region in Spain. And most of the money they owe is to Spain directly.
So it's like someone asks for a loan to build a company, company is successful and he thinks "Man, I'd be so rich if I didn't have to return the money. Damn you banks, for making me pay back"
Not only that, but Cataluña is also successful precisely because they are part of Spain, a big european country.
That's the part that I despise the most about this whole "We want to be independent". The deception into thinking that they are gonna be better off as a separate country. I totally get why people would want to be independent if that means being richer. Who wouldn't? But reality is, they are not. They are gonna be a failed state, not recognised internationally, it will take years to gain recognition and the damage will be huge by then. Not to mention that all the european benefits will disappear.
If you tell them that, and they still want to be independent, I'd say go ahead. But I doubt most people would support it if they knew it would be detrimental for them.
Probably the question now is "If it's that bad, why would their regional government ever want to be independent?" They thought they be regarded as oppressed victims after the referendum. They knew the central government would send the police and how bad would that look, trying to gain international support. But they didn't. That's why Puigdemont backed out.
Somebody sounds like a petty closet case with a superiority complex.
If you're talking about Catalans, you are wrong.

the wars we're fighting aren't about winning. They're about making sure we have a war going on.
War allows for more nationalism, meaning the government can do things like the USA PATRIOT act in the name of protection, and allows for the military industrial complex to profit. It also provides a really nice way for a president to look good- just send a couple high-profile missile strikes and watch the popularity rise.

The way I play? it more like
friendship is mandatory
resistance is futile
and I make it abundantly clear.
