A quote which means nothing. Society as such does jack diddly squat for anyone. :).
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

Worst quote ever:

"Unemployment is due to the large import of goods from Britain and other countries. The Government haven't used the powers which they have for the benefit of the country." - Eamon De Valera.

God I hate De Valera.

How is that the worst quote ever the higher the export of a country the more employment?

And JFK's speech was the best thing i have ever heard come out of a Liberal, he speaks so forcefully of service to your country something that I too place great importance in.

Read up on 1920's - 1940's Ireland. De Valera and other Anglophobes engaged in a devastating (For Ireland) economic war. Ireland relied very heavily on imports, as we do nowadays, but in terms of Multinational corporations. He made this to go with the "Burn everything British but their coal" mentality.

I thought De Valera was a ledgend. I don't know if this is true, but I heard that the English offered him the 6 counties back if Ireland went to war for them, and he turned it down and then went and signed Hitlers book of condolences. That could just be some bullsh*t someone filled me with along the way though.

That's all true. The only credit I can I've him is the fact he defended Ireland's neutrality, was ready to defend the nation at all costs and fought for independence.

However, he was an anti-modernist, pro-Catholicism and isolationist.

Well some form of a stand had to be made against the English in fairness. Pride bud.

The United Irishmen realised Ireland couldn't survive without England. Apparently De Valera thought, even though the English were a major part of our economy, it would be fine to let us enter a massive depression in "protest", whilst the British merely went elsewhere for the fewer resources Ireland no longer traded.

Improved economic relations with England. If someone puts you in a headlock, and releases you, punching them only puts you in the headlock again.

No, I'm the sort you rationally knows when he can't win the fight, or it would be a pyrrhic victory, it's better to befriend the possible opponent.

See thats your problem. Its not about winning, and theres nothing wrong with a pyrrhic victory. Its all about letting them know that your not gona take sh*t. Take the fella putting you in a headlock for instance, if you just let him get away with it, hes probably going to continue putting you in headlocks whenever he meets you, but if he has you in a headlock and you get out of it and break his nose then hes going to leave you alone. You'll probably get a bad beating there and then but your not going to get put in any headlocks any time soon. What problems have Ireland had with the England since De Valera?

1) Ireland gained nothing from that economic war. England had plenty of other commonwealth/colonial allies to gain those resources from.

2) Things have happen. IRA, Omagh, UVF and The Troubles ring a bell?

3) Ireland has put in a headlock. It got out, and all it did was punch the bully in face, causing no damage and simply causing them no harm and aggravating the bully. By the luck of Ireland, one of it's ""friends comes along and starts being a d*ck, causing them to gang up on him. That guy then goes and shoots some pizzamen.

1) It was, as you said, a pyrrhic victory.

2) All of those things had only to do with the Irish retaliating in the north. The English made no further advances into Ireland.

3) What? If you punch someone in the nose and it aggravates them, thats means they weren't too fond of the experience, and sure your going to get a beating at the time but they'll steer clear of you in future.

It may be pyrrhic, but no victory.

Obviously, because of Irish-American relations, and the fact England couldn't keep Ireland under it's thumb if it wanted. Plus, they couldn't support Ireland financially.

We didn't punch them in the nose. It was more of a hissy fit followed by light banging on the chest.

Yeah but those were your examples of other "things" happening, but they were not caused by the English....The box into the nose helped.

3) What? If you punch someone in the nose and it aggravates them, thats means they weren't too fond of the experience, and sure your going to get a beating at the time but they'll steer clear of you in future.

We didn't punch them in the nose. It was more of a hissy fit followed by light banging on the chest.

Yeah but those were your examples of other "things" happening, but they were not caused by the English....The box into the nose helped.

Again, the economic war did Britain no harm.

It wasn't meant to do them harm. It was meant to let them know that we did not intend to put up with their sh*t.

It may be pyrrhic, but no victory.


2) All of those things had only to do with the Irish retaliating in the north. The English made no further advances into Ireland.

Obviously, because of Irish-American relations, and the fact England couldn't keep Ireland under it's thumb if it wanted. Plus, they couldn't support Ireland financially.
