Irish Citizens Slowly Realising They Might Be Part Of The Problem


WHILE torrents of outrage begin flooding social media conversations and regular conversations as the latest scandal emanating from an Irish institution hits the headlines, an Irish public, in a contemplative mood, has begun questioning if at some level they may be part of a wider problem.

“I think that’s really insulting, I don’t condone any of the shit that’s happened… what’s happened?” explained one member of the public to WWN.

“Right, what do you expect me to do? I’m very busy and this doesn’t affect me directly to be honest,” added the biannually concerned citizen.

As the continued entanglement of Church and State persists, and financial impropriety within the banking sector goes unpunished as senior members of An Garda Síochána lurch from one scandal to another while HIQA produce hourly reports of catastrophic failures in the HSE, some members of the public have accepted that for things to improve and change a huge undertaking of collective civil responsibility must begin.

“That’s not true, we marched against the Sisters of Charity’s ownership of the Maternity Hospital,” countered Dublin man Eoin Higgins, who hasn’t marched against anything since Cadbury’s changed the named of Moro bars to Boost bars.

“Politicians in the back pockets of developers, the church, tech business, foreign governments and a million other people and you think a bit of protesting will change that, fuck off with yourself,” shared another member of the public who gets riled when people protest against water charges.

However, despite the understandable feeling that some powerful institutions conspire to undermine the public good and are a continuing obstacle to a fair and progressive society, a leading sociologist Professor Anna Farron explains a disturbing reality behind such institutions.

“People rightfully throw their hands up at scandal and ineffectual and damaging aspects of Irish society, but our research suggests that many of these institutions are actually made up of people. Irish people. People we know personally. People’s friends, family, neighbours and coworkers. We actually know these people we’re complaining about very well, and in some cases we are the people we’re giving out about,” Prof Farron, while admitting her research is only in its infancy and may be incorrect.

EDITOR’S NOTE: WWN does not condone the words of Prof Farron, who would want to fucking watch herself before having a go at Ireland. Stuck up elitist prick.
