Catalonia has been covered in the media quite a lot recently due to the "el procés," i.e. the struggle for independence and attempts to establish independent, sovereign Catalan Republic.
The debate on whether Catalonia should or should not secede from Spain has raised the recurrent and demanding question for libertarians: is it "libertarian" to support this particular secessionist process, knowing that the group wanting to secede does not necessarily seek to build a free market and libertarian paradise in the north-eastern part of the Peninsula? Furthermore, is supporting the right of self-determination disrespectful for those who do not want to leave Spain, but live in Catalonia? Is there any "libertarian" solution to this Catalan puzzle? I will show that there is one called "enclavization."
