A nation of obedient ****-takers ~ Christy Moore

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

”There’s no doubt they have us where they want us. We seem to have become a nation of docile, obedient ****-takers with a few exceptions the same galoots are in the driving seat, the banking elite have become, if anything, even more arrogant, the PAYE workers,the poor, the elderly, the infirm, the special needs, these are the ones paying for the sins of the greedy…for the laissez faire attitude of Bertie Ahearn and his Government,the Ray (Dublin Bay) Burkes,the Pee Flynns and Ray McSharry’s and their team of lickers, the Brian Cowans, Mary Hanaffins, Mary Coughlans, Mary Harneys most of them, and many others, gone out to ( the very long) grass with awesome pensions. The Johnny Ronans, Bernard McNamara’s,Tom McFeeleys, and their numerous counterparts are still lingering at the trough.The nameless Banker Tycoons who fed these monsters endless millions to chase sick fantasies, to fuel helicopters and Maybachs, champagne swilling lifestyles, endless acquisitive ego-boosting and criminal behaviours… all these lauded by the same Bertie who suggested that those who tried to call a halt, would be better of committing suicide…What a dirty slur that was. What sort of a ( repeatedly elected ) leader cur would utter such a crass and low exortation to his electorate from the platform…. At a time when thousands of families were suffering the pain of such loss and deprivation…

They seem to have us where they want us alright…supine on the couches of the nation, hypnotised by Football, X Factor and Downton Abbey.
We are are back again at the same spot…. countless thousands pay the price…..” ~ Christy Moore

I find Moore's pontificating and moralising insufferable especially when he complains about others moralising and pontificating. He jumped the shark with "they never came home" when he decided what happened in the stardust disaster when he could not possibly have been in posession of the full facts.

What happened that night was and still is an open sore on the Northside, I think Moore was reflecting the pain of the folk of the Northside. If you have any additional facts to share I'd love to hear them?

Unfortunately there are too many people nowadays who see no role in society for the philosopher, the poet, the thinker or the musician. They have fallen victim to the views that economic factors must be dominant and that the only way of achieving anything is via the direction route of "doing something" or by "getting involved" though the electoral process. We hear this every week that Fintan O'Toole publishes another unpopular truth or exposes another myth that has been perpetrated on us.
The last thing we need at this time are the great pragmatic, but often thoughtless "doers" or more elected politicians. This is a time for deeper thought, for prompting dreams and exploring new ideas, because otherwise we will patch up our society and our dreams won't extend beyond a return to the crass ugliness of the Celtic Tiger.
