It is discouraging that the roman republic lasted so long and its US analogue doing the same. They could drag this farce of the constitutional "representative" democracy clown show out for another century. Imagine the country in 2080, maybe 40% of the country being ethnic Irish, totalitarian law and mass entertainment then, a 1% of media bugmen bullying public opinion.I was watching a Chinese businessman on You Tube and he said that in China the party cannot change but the policies can. In the West, the parties change but the policies can't. That's certainly true in Ireland. Since the Brits founded the Free State in 1921, the only policy here has been to drive up the value of land so as to enrich the landowners. To change that policy you'd not only have to exterminate the FFG, but the 26 county free state itself.
Movies like Elysium are coming true. Ascending China is an Outside context problem that might stop this trajectory of history. Forget about the rest of the world. India is a multiethnic shithole, South America a joke as is the Muslim world, even the Muslims are afraid of China which basically is a national socialist state using a low suffrage electoral system.
