Your probably right about that, but it could happen. Imagine this: Spain arrests Catalan's police chief (which they have threatened to do). Catalan's locals resist forcibly (which is not improbable). Shots get fired, things get out of hand. I agree it's unlikely.......but wars have started over less.

Where are the liberal voices who keep telling us that peaceful means help a revolution? They keep saying violence doesn't push forward a cause, but I don't see much movement on the subject of Catalonia. I just see the Spanish feds and EU doubling down on rejecting the split.

It's almost as if being peaceful just makes it easier for the oppressors to keep oppressing...
