    I support both Catalan and Scottish(Gael or Celts) movements, these two nation have same roots, they came from so called protoCelts. They want to save their own nationality, their identity…they want ot preserve their way of life… “Nationalism is a belief, creed or political ideology that involves an individual identifying with, or becoming attached to, one’s nation. Nationalism involves national identity, by contrast with the related construct of patriotism, which involves the social conditioning and personal behaviors that support a state’s decisions and actions.” Rothi, Despina et al. (2005). National attachment and patriotism in a European nation: A British study. Political Psychology, 26, 135 – 155

      “their way of life” was destroyed by industrialization and globalization long time ago

    “We will not be ruled by those whose ways are strange to us” is the core of Nationalism. As such, interestingly, it covers the culture wars of the US as well as the independence movements of other countries.

    It is also the bloodiest force in all of human history, edging out government incompetence / maliciousness, Conquest by a factor of ten, and leaving Religion behind by orders of magnitude.
