This article by Karmelo Landa emphasizes that we the Basques have benefited from outstanding homebuilders and nation builders, intellectuals who laid out the scientific and theoretical grounds for the Basque nation. Koldo Mitxelena, Txillardegi, Joxe Azurmendi or Gabriel Aresti shine among them, pioneers whose achievements made an impact, providing us with a finished scientific and academic, ethic and aesthetic framework for our nation.

Landa laments nowadays the absence of like figures, political leaders capable of designing the way towards independence. They do exist in Scotland and Catalonia, why not in the Basque Country?
