Catalan on Netflix and other bourgeois whims
The peoples were relentless in the wars of religion. Civil strife provoked Egyptians worshipers of one god and the other. The Romans who worshiped Jupiter crushed the Jews of God, And the Crusaders are against the infidels, and Islam is against half the world. And many cases that I avoid citing so as not to distort these lines with deaths.
The historian needs to get to the twenty-first century to find the beginning of language battles, because before, if there were any, they went unnoticed. The conflict in Spain began when the demands of users of two languages, the Catalan and Spanish speakers, rose.
There are those who believe that it was Catalan speakers. But this is not true, and it cannot be due to the lack of Catalan speakers. It has been around for many years, perhaps centuries, although remains can still be found in isolated rural areas.
This group of Catalan Spanish speakers (although we don’t know how many) want some series, movies, and videos on Netflix to be dubbed into Catalan, one of their two languages. The Spaniards serve, but they want them in Catalan. whims.
He’s like a bourgeois from Madrid’s Salamanca neighborhood who owns two cars, a sports car and an SUV, but he resents the last car because his son-in-law, also a wealthy Moralia, gave it to him. That is why he uses the sports car whenever he can and not when he wants.. to annoy the near.
The ERC leaders, the instigators of demand, know that they can ask for whatever they want. They will give it to them. They threatened to charge the state’s public budgets with bullets if the ruling party did not give in to their demands. They can demand that the budget be allocated to improve the economic fabric and employment for Catalans always and those close to them.
But no, they prefer to use the sports car, because the off-road driver is angry.
“It is true that some languages, we cannot avoid, remain confined to the family environment and the environment of friends, while others feel more comfortable in culture, economics, and the arts.”
It is not hard to understand the rudeness of that Catalan bourgeoisie who always felt superior, but that is now ecstatic, because there are times of gifts and pardons. And they get another cramp when they see their sports car ride on Netflix. There were always classes.
It should not matter to us other than in contempt or contempt for monolinguals, which were punished for being so in regions connected with Catalonia or Valencia. For the rest of the world, a simple Spanish speaker, and monolingual Spanish, like English, are considered and admired. The Catalan-Spanish speaker is also admired and admired Because of his status as a Spanish speaker, which no one asks about the other. It’s things that happen.
I like to praise in an article, even in several, the Catalan language, which I have loved and admired so much since I read it Terran Le Blanc (whose author says he writes in Valencia). But today it does not touch.
Today is the time to reprimand the excessive use of sports. It is true that some languages, which we cannot avoid, are often confined to the family environment and the environment of friends, Others ride more comfortably in the culture, economy and arts jeep, including literature.
It’s Catalan’s turn to be the sports car, and the Castilian is the off-road and Galician car, poor, tractor travel.
“The fights spread to the neighboring community. Intermediaries demand that companies be obligated by law to operate in the Valencian region”
But the benefit does not end here. The battles spread to neighboring communities. You require Compromís that companies are required by law to operate in the Valencian Community. why? Well, I guess they are also angry with the son-in-law. I don’t see those who absorbed the Spanish language since their childhood doing sports, but you can try. I imagine the complaints.
– Mr. Linguistic Commissioner, who told me in Souvenires Quiles Good evening instead of Good evening.
“Well, the octopus will fall at the hands of the uneducated Mr. Quills.” See if he learns to be bilingual.
– But, Commissioner, my clients come from outside here, and have no idea that they are Valencians. Those out there don’t even know it’s there.
Well, they learn, Colons! We are Valencians and we don’t want to know anything about the Spaniards. Let the whole world know we exist.
Commissioner, do you realize that you speak to me in Spanish?
Even the language commissioners are not ignorant of the fact that in Valencian society it would look rarer than an octopus in a garage if Spanish suddenly disappeared.
In Madrid, where people travel with SUVs and do not know the sports car, says Ms. Isabel Diaz Ayuso Respect those who do not speak and do not want to speak Catalan or Valencian.
Thank God that with languages everything remains in battles: touch and drown.
Those of religion were real wars. And they still are.
