Agreed its modern in relative terms but a lot has happened in 60 years. I wasn't aware of the citizenship provisions being revised so recently. Was it via a referendum ? (I'm assuming it wasn't the anglo Irish agreement one)
Movement of refugees, economic or otherwise, may have existed in 1938 but the ease and pace with which such movement can take place today is drastically different given travel and communications advances. As I said, nothing wrong with asking the question and let people answer yes or no.
Agreed about someone being born having citizenship rights although I didn't think this interfered with that right, rather with the right of the parents. I think these rights vary from country to country although I'm open to correction on this.
