    We would have to be swallowed by the sea for it to get any worse.

    They would see the “failed” states from a situational perspective. ROI-style self-deprecation and self-loathing would be alien concepts to them.

    An Ireland in which institutionalized sectarianism and other forms of colonial misrule had been defeated in the 18th century would be much stronger in this time. They would understand that fact.
