    I would like to see a referendum conducted to ask of the sovereign people if they would favour the establishment in Ireland of governance as honorarium. By this is meant that, whilst the architecture of governance might well remain much as one sees it, the elected incumbents shall henceforth have NO SALARIES; NO PENSIONS; NO FISCAL ADVANTAGE BY VIRTUE OF THEIR INCUMBENCY. They will therefore henceforth do their work pro bono public.

    ……….further; I would like to see a referendum conducted to ascertain whether the sovereign people would endorse/support the striking of a new national currency, with these provisos. A) that said currency shall be legally stated to be, and so endorsed, as Legal Tender, B) that it be forbidden by the Constitution to in any way debauch, debase, dilute or otherwise degrade this currency, and C) that it be a criminal offence to utilise this currency for any usurious purpose.

    ————–and lastly, I would like a referendum to be held to ascertain whether the sovereign people would endorse the principle, and establish the practice, that the state shall henceforth base the conduct of it’s economic affairs upon Justice. It is instructive to reflect that, since all taxation of whatever kind is demonstrably grounded in INjustice, this would necessarily entail the elimination of taxation from the economy. Interestingly, this is perfectly feasible.

    I have looked at the policies, all of them valid and worthwhile. However, a cautionary note, if I may. Point 1 is the restoration of the powers of referenda, which is fair enough. But can DDI proceed with all the other policies without securing, through referendum, the mandate of the sovereign people so to do, as precisely invoked in point 1? I am simply enquiring, please understand.

    .I would like to see a referendum conducted to ascertain if the Irish people would agree to having Ireland as a genuinely neutral nation. It should be borne in mind that this requires firstly, that every citizen undergo rigorous military training, secondly, that the military be provided with sufficient firepower to do the job, and lastly, that in the politico-economic dimension this means commerce with all/alliances with none. Neutrality has no meaning unless people are both armed to the teeth and resolutely determined to defend their homeland against all comers.

    …a referendum to end destitution among Ireland’s citizens. This may be done by deeding every citizen, upon majority, absolute title to a plot of one fifth of an acre of land. There would be just a few provisos; the citizen cannot sell, gift, or bequeath the plot, nor otherwise alienate it. One cannot be, you see, at once both destitute and a landowner. Q.E.D.

    Perhaps the age of suffrage might be raised to at least twenty one (and be restricted to Irish citizens). I am not sure that the pots of governance should be stirred by adolescents, nor do I readily see why the opinion, expressed at the ballot box, of the most farsighted and reflective mind in the realm should be set at nought and rendered futile a moment later by a giddy sixteen year old with the attention span of a sheep.

    OK, while I think of it. A referendum to ask the Irish people if, upon reflection, they would be in favour of ending the whole squalid farce, packing it all in, facing the truth, (that they were never up to the burden of “Independence” in the first place)—and re-joining that United Kingdom they should never have left to begin with. That would be interesting in this forthcoming centenary year.

    Further to the currency proposal I made, I suggest that a detailed analysis be made of the Swiss parallel currency, the WIR Franc. It is electronic, not failure prone, has a stabilising effect in turbulent times, operates through a Community banking system owned by the 60,000+ enterprises involved, and seems like a very good idea. If so, a referendum to set something like it up in Ireland seems well worth holding
