Franco was a shitty leader and the Spanish economy hasn't been "prosperous" since the 18th century. Both sides in that war were complete shit, it was just an early round of the eastern front.

Because the Spanish economy was never "strong" under him, Spain was never a power, Spain was never prosperous, it was only prosperous, as you've gone to great lengths to reiterate, in comparison with far more incompetent regimes.

You left out a detail : that all those "far more incompetent regimes" were COMMUNIST. Of the same kind as the one defeated by Franco.

Of course it makes him good.

That doesn't make any sense. People have already stated how dysfunctional the Republicans were, beating them was no real accomplishment unless you're a biased twat that thinks everyone that casually stepped on a misplaced soviet flag is some kind of hero.


>As for his actual rule, it was not that bad.

It doesn't matter, but you're a leftist, it's pretty obvious from your shilling.

I guess it's a question of perspective. For me, a leader who prevents his country from descending into horrible communist carnage and subsequently goes on to make Spain almost as rich as its northern neighbors is pretty good.

It's when you keep it going and sustain it and build off it and diversify and grow that you're worth a damn. He didn't, he stagnated and receded.

>Spain has never been as rich as post-war France,
The key word being "almost". Had you read the article on the spanish miracle instead of saying "NO THATS NOT TRUE MY EYES, THEYRE BURNING", you would have read this interesting statistic:

>While Spain remained less economically developed relative to most of western Europe in the 1970s, in the "miracle's" heyday, 1974, Spanish per capita income had reached 79% of the European Economic Community
The average spaniard was worth 80% of the average frenchman. What would the corresponding statistic be had the Republic won? Probably closer to 10%

This attribution is ridiculous and obviously propaganda as almost all Matadors were pro-Fascist and bullfighting was heavily discouraged in the Republic because they were short on meat

every single time, every single dictatorship

just like that shitty comparison is lacking transparency, faking/hiding data was a common practice in every single dictatorship ever created.

e.g.: just like "nuestros hermanos" we in portugal had a dictator and when people where "invited" by the secret police they often died of "natural causes" according to their death certificate which was pretty amusing since we're talking about people between 18~75 years old most of them very healthy until they've been taken to be "inquired about subversive activities"

i have no idea what's the deal between bullfighting and everything else i wrote.
bullfighting all over the iberian peninsula was always a show for the amusement of the elites where the plebs could or couldn't be invited to watch - so of course republicans were against it (they still are but nowadays it's a claim by the left wing).

my point was no matter how right you think you are; if you open pandora box and start killing a few people you're on the path of the tyrant and it's just a matter of time until the blood of both sides flows throught the streets...

The iron fist to suppress the enemy of the revolution makes logical sense. So too does Franco using the iron fist against us. On the moral ground I can't begrudge him doing what was effective.

But I will complain because he did it against progress to destroy change and the advancement of man because muh Church and traditions. So fuck him.

The real question on the use of violence is when to end its use.

Also even on moral grounds you're confusing the question. Violence is a logical, rational act. More importantly, the violence of the oppressed against oppressor is not equal to that of the oppressor attempting to retain their power. One is more justified than the other.

Oh, and the bullfighting argument is because if the priests are going
>"waaaah they fed us to bulls"
And there's no bulls around, then they're full of bullshit

if you have a rightful claim sooner or later you will have the majority of the people on your side and at that point it will take too much to preserve the status quo for the rulling elite, so instead of gambling everything and possible end up defeated and dead they prefer to give up power and operate behind the shadows

What does GDP as a percentage even mean?

Forgive me if I'm being horribly ignorant, I barely have a layman's grasp of economics.

Huh, I just bought a book about the Spanish civil war yesterday and now this thread pops up. If Franco was so bad, how'd he stay in power for so long?
