Have you ever seen the likes of the invective flying around over the past few years? :shock2:

The hatred for people working in Banks, Estate Agents, The Legal Profession, Construction Industry etc. :shock:

Its dangerous for some of them to go to the Pub!

Then its Public V Private & within that Gards, Nurses, Firemen, School Teachers, Civil Servants etc feeling the strain...

It seems now more than ever someone has it in for someone else because of their Job.

As the rush to the trough heats up people are having their individuality obliterated & are simply being categorised by their job.

Some communities are disuniting.

This is unfortunate as Ireland was always an easy going Country & apart from a bit of moaning reserved for Speed Cops, Doormen, Bus Drivers, Taxi Drivers etc it was live & let live up until recently.

Worse again we also have "Propism" - in our newly ever more fragmented society - people are now being hated over when they bought a house & if they are looking for a Deal or are forking out for someone else. :confused:

If we don't look at were we are heading as a people then we will just end up in an ever worsening "hatefest".

Although I've made these 2 words up - I'm aware of a differnt form of "Jobism" & Malapropism.

Regardless- we need to cool down as we share out our blamegame & struggle through to a better future.

And yes Astral - a Deefster OP without loadsa questions :p

People's taxes are rising, their prospects are dwindling and they are seeing very little for it.

Blaming "others" is the only rational response. It is impossible for the State to look after everybody's needs but everybody expects their every need to be looked after because their neighbour is apparantly having theirs looked after.

This is a necessary condition of an increasingly pluralistic "society". It will only get worse, until the welfare state disappears.

To be fair, people in the legal profession by and large are a bunch of useless overcharging c*unts.

It is even better that that- we manage some people because of the jobs they do and others because they have no job at all.

I haven't worked for a while (not claiming either in case some poster wants to cut my throat) but when I did work, at one stage I was on a contract teaching job for Fas, "oh, you're one of them", was a comment I got one day.

Lawyers, estate agents, bankers, and quango snouts deserve all the abuse they get.

Though, perhaps we are a bit hard on second hand car dealers putting them in the same category.

Why are people availing of their services so? Why are these people not (a) haggling the costs or (b) going elsewhere for a cheaper deal?
Because they have a monopoly.

I'll join in this game of new 'isms'.

My first one is 'Linguism' as in 'Aer Lingus'. The sufferer is usually the patriot in the corner of the bar brooding and hating the sight of anyone Irish back in town for a visit who happens to have made a life abroad for themselves and he needs to make a patriot of himself by claiming that he stayed in Ireland out of love for his country and by comparison anyone intelligent enough to have built a life elsewhere is less than patriotic.

'Iodism', a condition affecting mostly elderly conservatives where they think the Institute of Directors should be named the new technocratic government because that would stop all the scruff voting and then the country would be run in businesslike fashion- ie, bankrupt and corrupt. Favourite saying; 'Let no new thing arise'.

'CommArcialism'- the immediate promotion of any crook in a suit to Joan of Arc status. Preferably having lifted or wasted billions this object of adoration to the Arcialist must be defended at all costs and especially if they had ever played shove ha'penny down the pub with the peasants. This group used to be known to estate owners in pre-Independence days in Ireland as 'the tenants'.

'Dauphinism'. This is a condition found among the sons and daughters of Fianna Fail TDs. Deeply offended that the rabble have voted Daddy out and how are they going to get co-opted onto a council seat now? May also be found among Fine Gaelers in due course.

'Desperandimism'. Sons and daughters of Labour Councillors and TDs. See 'Dauphinism'.
