Yes, what a pity to see walls within walls day after day.

Mao's penultimate solution appears more reasonable and expeditious over time, but not more socially acceptable, or economically useful as the "positivists" might say were it still socially acceptable to "self-identify" as such.

Having foreclosed that option, given Tory opposition to acknowledging tangible and intangible barriers to peace and reconciliation, What happens next?

IF peace and reconciliation for the inhabitants of UK ("NI") and IE is the goal of some people

AND

prohibition of any physical barrier between the territories is agreed to facilitate peace and reconciliation for all inhabitants

THEN

some people might necessarily mobilize government resources to enforce UK gov obligations and facilitate free movement of inhabitants, attested in the GFA; OR

all people might necessarily ignore illegal barriers to movement between the territories.

IF the first condition is not satisfied, THEN what happens?

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
