'Once it has started it cannot stop'

Regional fracture in in Spain and what it means? So, what we are looking at from the article attached below is the region of Catalonia seeking independence and what that means for Spain. The article discusses the route Catalonia will and has taken to be so close to independence and touches on how it will archive it. It also goes on to say what Spain’s possible reaction might be, because it is considered unwilling but non-aggressive. It is assumed they will be successful in gaining their independence.          
My first thought is that this fracture will happen due to the organized manner in which this break is happening. However, it is my opinion that it will not be as easy as the author thinks for Catalonia to gain its independence. The reason I think this is because no matter how just or organized the succession is a country as old as Spain will not just let this happen without a fight be that political or otherwise.      
There are a few different impacts this could have on the rest of the world. First off if they do peacefully break away from Spain what will happen after? Will the new an independent country try to be totally self-sufficient or perhaps want to join the European Union. Also there is the need to consider what may happen if failing in a peaceful way to separate from Spain what may happen. This could include anything from armed resistance to military intervention from other countries.    

Below is the article
