As none of the parties seem to have clear ideas on this I decided to post this. Discounting military solutions and leaving aside demographic predictions, how best can we unite the people of Ireland? Also leave out the UK. heres what I thought of.
1. Forget about the unionists and stay true to our own meaning of Irishness. They can join us or leave.
2. Combine our culture with unionist culture and create a new Irish identity.
3. Forget about identity, become west europeans hoping that in the future national identities will not mean anything and then we'll join together out of pure economic logic.
4. Federalise ireland and let the unionists keep their own corner of Ireland, like a french speaking canton in Switzerland surrounded by german speaking cantons. Though we'd be one country again.
How long do you think each of these options would take and how much chance do they have in succeding? What is the most likely and which would each party go for?
