Last quote by Felipe Fernández-Armesto

The big problem of Spain is that it has had this pretense to be one country, with almost a sacrosanct idea of unity, when it should always have seen itself as a remarkably successful experiment in the coexistence of different communities. Nationalism didn't work when it was invented in the 19th century and it makes even less sense now, but in a time of globalization, people are retreating to comfort zones, even if that might mean creating new ghettos.feedback
