WHAT IF?

WHAT IF?: ""He controlled the police to a huge extent. He liked to contact middle-ranking civil servants all over the place, getting them to do things, sometimes without the knowledge of their superiors or ministers, as was borne out by the evidence given before the Moriarty tribunal. And if they weren’t prepared to do the things he wanted them to do they were effectively sidelined."?"

A clarion call to reject the 'axis of austerity' - The Irish Times - Sat, Dec 15, 2012: "If Official Ireland is the villain, then it is in good company.

Dr. Bill Tormey, Dublin North West Fine Gael; Glasnevin; Finglas; Ballymun; Councillor; DCC » Justine McCarthy – devastating commentary

Dr. Bill Tormey, Dublin North West Fine Gael; Glasnevin; Finglas; Ballymun; Councillor; DCC » Justine McCarthy – devastating commentary: "In turn, the church gives the state ready absolution. As the Irish economy was being pulverised by bankers and builders in a climate of scant state regulation, most of the bishops stayed silent. Greed being one of the seven deadly sins, the immorality let loose by the most powerful people in society should have demanded rigorous moral guidance from the hierarchy, or so one would have thought. After all, didn’t Jesus throw the money-lenders out of the temple?"

From that time on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the results that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.""?

Social Action Office - Catholic Social Teaching

Social Action Office - Catholic Social Teaching: "Essentially, Leo XIII had two concerns. Firstly, he opposed the atheistic philosophy of communism but recognised its appeal to workers. Communism offered workers a socio-economic and political alternative to the self-interested alliance between aristocratic privilege and capital-industrial interests. In short, it was an influential part of a growing movement for political and economic equality. This was a movement the Church could not ignore.

Secondly, he took issue with what he saw as the excesses of liberal-capitalist development in Europe. Central to these excesses was the exploitation and dire poverty of workers and the concomitant concentration of privilege and wealth in the hands of a few"?1891/2013?
