These four undermentioned characters in the drive for and against Irish republicanism are, arguably, the most notable of all those involved in the armed struggles of the 20th century in Ireland. I am identifying them in particular for one extremely noteworthy, if not unbelievable, reason that all of them were the same magnetic type of 4+. And how they showed it, too. All of them were intransigent in their views. All of them were single-minded. And all of them were memorable for their relentless pursuit of their ideologies. In the case of the leading barrister of his day, Dublin-born Edward Carson, who led the strong protestant-held view of Unionism leading to the formation of the state of Ulster and the phrase ‘no surrender’, the others were formerly and latterly violent men of the opposite opinion with the ultimate goal of a united Ireland behind their every machination.
But most of all, they are quintessentially the best examples of the mindset of 4+ magnetic field types.
