    Default Does Ireland need its own Orania?

    What is really important in your life? Health, wealth, wellbeing, a future for your children, freedom? Its seems Orania has all these things.

    Orania, Northern Cape - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

    According to wikipedia the purpose of Orania is; "The aim of the town is to create a stronghold for Afrikaans and the Afrikaner identity by keeping their language and culture alive".

    The place looks fantastic. Aside from its advocacy of environmentalism and green energy Orania promotes; hard work, self reliance, equality and self determination. It has its own governing process and its own currency. Lets face it, we now lack the ability to live in an environment where any of the necessities that are required to live as a free people, able to make our own decisions and the dignity to have a job and trade in a self made currency are gone.

    Is an Irish Orania needed? I think it would be a really positive project and worthy of some thought.

    If this country implodes as it may well do, I think you'll see several Irish Oranias develop...

    They'll basically be gated communities within which those who can afford to will retreat while the rest of the country goes down the sh!tter...

    When may this happen?

    If the middle classes are wiped out it will happen because the middle classes are like the oil of a nation...

    Without the middle classes the rich will retreat and the poor will be destitute...

    Sounds like Ballymena.

    Would you think the same if it was Hitler developing a 'Naziania' for the super race?

    Sometimes there is very little between historical and hysterical. One passes for the other. In time, the former remains forever, the latter is quickly replaced...

    Or why zoo it?

    The answer to both would appear obvious, given the little supremicists swimming around this particular carcass.
