Hóigh, gach duine (hello, everybody) Newbie. Irish. Republican. Socialist-Lite (I've taken to calling my political brand Socialist-Lite due to the fact I despise the bastardisation reaped upon socialism by the vulgar interpretation of Marx's ideas on society and economics by the 'dictator-of-the-proletariat' crowd. Also Marx's analysis was of a 19th century economy. Our economy and the various relationships have changed and will continue to change. Socialism must adapt continuously.) Like the forum rules. Short and simple - like myself.
