The topic I wish to discuss today shall be precedent for a legal unification of a nation divided. I shall seek to ask and then answer two differnt questions. One, do we have any precedent for a national unification on the scale I propose? Two, how would American unity shape global precedent of territorial shifts?
Firstly within recent times that I can find from research, we have two examples to look to, neither of which are on such a scale as the US and Canada becoming one. And in truth, both very differnt. I speak, of Crouse, of North Yemen and South Yemen, and the more well known East Germany and West Germany. While these unifications were more seen as an inevitability of the end of the Cold war (the unification would be based on who would have won the cold war), They still give most of us hope for unification. While it’s not apples to apples, it does provide us with at least something to point to, which is better than nothing. Is it not?
Now onto the next question, I proposed. If we do get unity, how would that affect the world? well, it would change a lot, but let’s focus on one thing. It would help breed, what I’d call Panism. So pretty much similar ideologies would take root around the world. Pan-Irishism, Pan-Arabism(number 2 electric boolga loo), Pan-Slavicism, maybe even Pan Bolivarism! It would also breed legitimacy to these movements. It would push for unification globally. Such as North and South Korea, while it would not make them unify, it would push them closer to it Pan Americanism would only be the tip of the iceberg.
No matter if you disagree or agree with me, there is one thing we must agree on. At the end of the day, Jar Jar Binks was a mistake. Thank you for reading, have a great day, don’t hurt yourself, God Bless!
