WHY do they want Ireland in anyway?
Ireland is nothing to do with continental land-border-warmongering-and-bloodshed, which is what landlocked pre-capitalist barbarian lands have to worry about and talk about. Ireland, even more than Britain, is an integral Atlantic Nation. Happily, for Ireland, it is on the outer edge of any fallout from strife and trouble all caused by the Continent and its internal ogings-on – which have never, never, never (even now) settled down to peaceful pursuit of individual self-interest by individuals (except by the appication ov bribery) unhindered by a Big State.
All, absolutely all, of Ireland’s troubles, ever, have arisen from outside interference on the “European Land Border Model” (as I have just termed it now.) Look at Norman and Angevin interference; the Thirty-Years’ War, fought all over again in Ireland, long after the European Main Event; the IRA – as European a Stalinist putsch-outfit of socialist gangsters as it’s possible to get – even funded for years by the Kremlin! (Forget Noraid – that was a Kremlin plot to persuade opinion in the West that the main cash was coming form the USA – it killed two birds with one stone! It deflected attention from the uSSR and discredited America in London – nice work, lads!)
The same as above can be said about the UK. All, absolutely all, of our troubles have arisen from either Europe’s intentions to overwhelm us about two things:-
(1) – we being all at the same time rich, free and a threat to the underlying planks of their “neo-Imperial-Roman” philosophy of Statehood and state power over individuals –
(2) – as our understanding of Foreign Policy matured in liberty and free thought and democracy, our consequent trying of natural defensive attempts to ensure that no paramount continental power could dominate the others and get at us with the combined stolen resources. ( = “The Balance of Power in Europe” – as necessary todya as it’s ever been, or even more so.)
The buggers ought not to try to browbeat Ireland. Only evil, (more) bloodshed and trouble will come of it, probably worse than before, and we shall this time be caught in the middle.
The buggers ought to let the WHOLE of the British Isles go, and go now. But they won’t coz’ they izz bust.
