There are no shortage of threads exponding on the fact that Ireland's economy is in serious difficulty. There are also threads discussing Ireland's many social and moral problems. There are even threads confirming that the World ecnomy is tottering and war on a global scale is a distinct possibility.
Without wishing to dwell on a worse case scenario it is reasonable to presume that we are close to a systemic breakdown of society. This is not the case I want to argue here. What I am intereted to know is what you people see as being the Ireland of the future. Or indeed what type of society Ireland will have in the new World.
