As a Catalan, I should say we just have our own language, but out culture is Spanish. And just 15% of Catalans (most of rural people) want to be a country. Saludos desde España :)

Thank you for your comment.

My understanding is that the Catalan separatism movement has been around for many years, and its popularity has waxed and wained...

Do you suppose that these regional divisions will become more, or less important, as European unity continues to grow... will Catalans and other Spaniards ever think of themselves as Europeans before anything else?

anonymous has got it wrong, not only wrong but biased.
Catalans have their own culture (eg: Ramon Llull is not a spanish author), and that 15% rurals he claims is plain racism.

Catalans have always been closer to Europe than spaniards are today.

But don't take my word: just google catalan literature, and take a look at the regions comittee of the EU.

Spanish nationalism it's a serious problem for the country to get ahead.

As you said, Catalonia is an Autonomous Community in the Kingdom of Spain, and Ramon Llull (or Raimundo Lulio) is an spanish philosopher.
