Northern Ireland at a crossroads as partition centenary reflects division

by News Update

Unionists are marking 100 years since the partition of Ireland.
But for nationalists, the creation of Northern Ireland remains contentious – the ensuing conflict led to thousands of deaths on both sides.

Al Jazeera’s Andrew Simmons reports from Belfast, Northern Ireland.

One Ireland! No man-made borders that divide people. Build bridges, not walls!

everyone works with the Rothschilds through banking systems around the world. You use paper money or electronic money to transact in the same way that you finance the Rothschild agenda. You want to fight the Rothschilds, reduce the use of banknotes or electronic money for transactions, it's the same as against the Rothschilds.

Their government, institutions, military, police, and intelligence are all under the control of the Rothschilds, they all work only for the Rothschilds, not the people of Europe.

Gold and Silver always maintain its store of value, however they fluctuate based on 1) the amount of manipulation of Futures and Options contracts, 2) the amount of money printing the Federal Reserve does, and 3) the real nominal rate of the 10- year treasury minus inflation.

Example: If you are getting 6% on a 10 year Treasury and (real) inflation is 3%, Precious Metals will do poorly like in 1999-2001. PMs should be WAY higher right now with a 10 year Treasury at 1.5% and real inflation north of 5%+ (negative nominal rate is very bullish for PMs), but a lot of that demand is being sucked up by crypto currencies.

Funny how they call it cryptocurrency and not cryptomoney.

I guess Gold and Silver still hold their monetary status after 5,000 years.

QUANTUM FINANCE !!!

It is a network based on sovereignty and commerce.

As we will see in a moment, the QFS cannot do without its design challenge, namely that it is an AI-based consensus system.
As mentioned in other contributions, human involvement in counterparty agreements must be managed through selective consensus in order to avoid unnecessary obscuring of the decision-making power.

Quantum Finance is an interdisciplinary field that applies theories and methods developed by quantum physicists and economists to solve problems in finance. It is a branch of so-called economic physics.

In the case of a non-interest-based system, it must be determined that a correct "reset" does not result in any dependencies on loans or debts which lead to an "overfunding" of assets.

A little calculation of the population situation on earth.

There are people who invoke the threat of an alleged "overpopulation". What is it?

Let's do the math in a slightly simplified way.

The world population is currently estimated at around 7.8 billion people. For simplicity, let's say 8 billion. In digits: 8,000,000,000

Now let's allocate 100 m2 of living space to every single person. From newborns to old people on their deathbeds, every person has 100 m2 of living space at their disposal throughout their life.

8 billion people x 100 m2 of living space = 800 billion m2 of living space requirement

Let's see how much that is in km2:
1 km2 = 1,000 m x 1,000 m = 1,000,000 m2
Consequently: 800,000,000,000 m2: 1,000,000 = 800,000 km2

Now let's mentally distribute this living space over three-story residential buildings. No skyscrapers, just 3-story buildings.

The following area would be required for this: 800,000 km2: 3 = 266,700 km2

Let's put this area in relation to the area of ​​Germany in 2020: 357,582 km2

357,582 km2 = 100%
266,700 km2 = 74.58% of the area of ​​Germany

or 0.18% of the earth's mainland (149,430,000 km2)

In other words:
If every single person were given 100 m2 of living space, and this living space were distributed over three-story houses, the entire current world population could easily be accommodated in almost ¾ of the area of ​​Germany. Not recommended, but mathematically possible.

And there would still be plenty of space for parks, forests, gardens, paths, roads.

While the rest of the world would be deserted.

Is that what overpopulation looks like? How do you get a media-sensitive, self-indulgent humanity to look facts in the eye?
Do we really know nothing better than to make life difficult for each other? What can we realize when we stand together as humanity?

Why do Unionist people think they are British? They are Northern Irish, correct?

Just bomb the whole island.

It might be alot more 😂 no it won't! Remember Ireland is still in Europe and we have the backup of the French, German, Spanish, Italian, Danish, Swedish, Porteguese and all the other states armies under the Lisbon treaty so we can call you refugees when Northern Ireland doesn't exist anymore 😂

If you were wondering from other parts of the world, well This is what having it too good for too long looks like.

Ireland must be united. No more Colonialism. Northern Ireland is a part of Ireland.

Dariusz Dudka May 3, 2021 - 5:28 PM

Northern Ireland And Ireland should both just become the same country and try to put religious, cultural, traditional, and holiday differences aside
