Oh, hell. I forgot to include the other egregious example of James' decision-making, the Ulster Plantation. This involved a "Plantation" of colonists from Scotland and Ireland in Northern Ireland. Ulster was chosen because due to wars it was heavily depopulated, and the O'Neills and the O'Donnells were outlawed for general rebelliousness. A lot of the colonists were from Ayrshire and the borders, which meant they had a distinct reivers mentality (aka they were bloody-minded in the extreme). Granted, it was not the only Plantation in Irish history, and immigration from Scotland to Ireland was taking place already without it. And Ulster had only 25,000 to 40,000 people at that time, mostly involved in seasonal droving. Nor were ordinary Catholics actually derived of their lands. But the long-term effects in Ireland have been...mixed.
