Your neighbor is and continues to be a scorpion. It will stab you even when you help them. Do not integrate your economic or politics with a failed state with a history of hate towards you and even tried to wipe out 1805. Do not build your economy with their people. Or you will perish in the same mode they did.
Your mission is for the Dominicanship to survive and proliferate in the island. It is not to spread failure and have the whole island fail while your identity and culture is washed away!
