I'll start worrying about Spain when I see the levels of political violence of the 1970s. If it gets to early 1930s levels, then I will really worry.

Currently there is no political violence to speak of.

too recent to 'insabbiare' (let get buried under the sand).

likewise falcone and borsellino's murders.
