Title: Europe And The Ukraine
The European Union is hell-bent on expansion. It only knows what it is if it is expanding. It has lost the power to consolidate. The idea that it is a union for mutual benefit of countries with similar cultures became a lie many years ago. It has long been out of the business of bringing together nations with compatible interests. It is now in the business of nation-building, and in order to build it must first destroy.

Title: North and South
Policing is a rough and ready business, even in a soundly-based functional democracy in a liberal state with an adversarial system of law. In Northern Ireland, which has never had democratic government, it is necessarily much rougher and readier. For half a century it was a system of Protestant communal authority slightly related to law.

Title: The Buck Stops . . . where?
When Britain decided to divide Ireland and hold part of it within the UK, it arranged that the remaining British quarter of Ireland should be undemocratically governed. It placed the Unionist/Protestant community in the North over the Nationalist community, in a form of government that consisted of little more than a system of Police and Militia control. The whole arrangement was excluded from the democratic political life of the state, though remaining entirely under its sovereignty.

After 50 years this system exploded under pressure of an absurdly moderate reform demand by the minority. The ruling Unionist body, both the formal police and the popular Loyalist movement associated with it, launched a wild assault on the Catholic minority. This provoked the Catholic community, which until then had on the whole been quiescent under oppression, into defending itself so vigorously that it found itself in a condition of insurrection. Insurrection then organised itself into war and ensured that the system imposed by Britain in 1921 could never be restored.

Title: Historic Destinies
Some Fine Gael TDs who voted for abortion complain that they are being denied Communion in the Catholic Church, and their complaints are treated by the Sunday Independent as having legitimate grounds. But it is well-known that the Catholic Church regards abortion as a form of murder. So we cannot see what their legitimate ground for complaint is.
