Avoiding foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless; History, Nevertheless confronts us with the Age Old question concerning the Distribution of Natural Resource and Communal Product. All referring to political circumstances before the French Revolution proves, is that Capitalism is not a God Given political philosophy.
The (Secular) Bridge, between Socialist Ideology, ( James Connolly ) and the Devout Roman Catholic Tradition, ( The Vatican ) may be closer than we think !

Kenny is making a terrible mistake, placing his Bourgeoisie Party Rhetoric between Ireland and Rome ~ A Good Example for would be successors on the Left. Sure, Ireland was once ruled by tyrannical despotic hypocrites; But were there not Saints and Heroes among them ? That what wee come to know, as Heritage and Pride, is actually only a very small part of History, Indeed ! Should that be an excuse for stripping our Cathedrals and Missals, of all her somber and painful Beauty ?
“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” Matthew 7: 3-5

Something about Corned Beef and Cabbage
Something about growing up in a Working Class Catholic Neighborhood.
Something about learning how not to stray down the wrong Alley Way
Something about reading Allen Ginsberg and Jim Carroll;
And listening to Roxy Music, the Clash, and U2, at Junior College.
Something about spending 10 years drifting about the Eastern High Sierras,
Something about being a card carrying member of a Labor Union
For the last Twenty Years.
Causes me to feel kind of Compatriotism and Comradery
For the Late Bobby Sands
And the cause of the former I.R.A

Was just reading an Alternative News story about a Demonstration on the EU Military Committee meeting in Dublin Castle. And was considering how Stormont, Labor, and even Sinn Fein, follow behind Dublin’s Capitalist Bi-Partisan Bourgeois, like the Republican Army behind Fife and Drum ! And became very cynical at the thought of what the idea of compromise, had wrought upon the progressive politics of the Irish Revolution ~
Ireland is a Country that from Street Level looks more like Sodom and Gomorrah, than St. Augustine`s City of God; and still the Sacrament Receiving, Bourgeois Proletariat ” Get’s, what it Wants ” ?
