  3. Agreed Well played Lisoti. 2-0 down I didnt think i would get anything but managed to steel a point. All the best
  4. @rambovanhardnut Your use of the term liberal to indicate someone from a left leaning political perspective smacks of far right American politics, the only place you will really hear the term used in a derogratary sense for those of the left. Liberalism for me is kinda the opposite of authoritarianism. Neo-liberalism for example which is economics based around free market capitalism is agressively anti-left. Liberalism: Liberalism is a political and moral philosophy based on liberty, consent of the governed and equality before the law.[1][2][3] Liberals espouse a wide array of views depending on their understanding of these principles, but they generally support free markets, free trade, limited government, individual rights (including civil rights and human rights), capitalism, democracy, secularism, gender equality, racial equality, internationalism, freedom of speech, freedom of the press and freedom of religion.[4][5][6][7][8][9][10] Yellow is the political colour most commonly associated with liberalism. When you say you are 90% liberal it doesnt really tell us anything about your political beliefs. For me on the political spectrum I dont like to put myself in a box, but I'd be somwhere close to being a socialist, I believe in the redistribution of wealth form the richest 5% to the other 95% for example. Your views on economics come across as something similar.
  5. Agreed Cracking game bud. Very enjoyable. Shijvers 1st was superb Looking at the table you are Defo still in with a shout of the play offs

  7. Let's take the east end of Glasgow as an example. Among the worst male life expectancies in Europe. Back in 2008 the life expectancy in the Calton for a male was 54. What do we have in the east end of Glasgow? Lots of people from immigrant backgrounds (Irish). That they were Catholic as well as Irish increased the discrimination that was perpetrated on them. It was adjudged by a scholar that they received equal employment rights in 1990. Of course it is not just Irish and Catholics who suffered from state structured inequality but they suffered disproportionately due to their ethnicity and religion. https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/scottish-news/men-in-glasgows-east-end-have-life-988632
  8. While I agree to an extent with the commentary in that, and I know he's a comedian, Its that type of sentiment that is used to divide the left. Its the type of sentiment that is also used as a recruitment tool for those on the right. He mocks anti fascists for example. Here in Dublin, Anti fascist action have always been to the forefront of stopping fascists and ultra nationalists from organising on the streets. And I'm proud of that fact. Whereas in England you see Tommy Robinson and his mates getting a foothold in communities and on the streets. Some causes do seem more cool to be involved with than others. And that is a tragedy certainly. And yes people the World over have been oppressed and continue to be so. I think you are rallying against the wrong people. I can understand why it p**ses you off that some people on the left (watery liberal types) are more focused on semantics than actual change. But don't focus on them. There is a whole World of left wing politics out there, you are focusing on the 1%. I consider myself very left of centre but I don't get bogged down in semantics and bulls**t. Its all about equality for me, local, national and global. Economic especially.
  9. Nuance certainly lacking from yourself and Bully here Rambo. Africa is a huge continent with various people's and cultures. Their stories and experiences of colonialism are as diverse as their cultures. But there is similarities in their experiences across the continent too. "Hundreds of years ago colonialism" "African heritage still there today" Of course there is still heritage/culture on a continent. Does this mean the nuance of the historical experience of colonialism on that continent shouldn't be discussed? Many elements of culture and heritage in Africa were irrevocably damaged by European colonialism. Mineral wealth for example, something that can't be repaired. "Focus on the Future" Of course, and not many will disagree with that sentiment. But having studied History myself, I feel it's important to understand the past when navigating the future. Many African countries are playing with one hand behind their back in economics due to colonialism. While their colonizers continue to reap the rewards of their pillaging. And that is just one example of the impact colonial legacy will have on Africa into the future.
  10. If you think colonialism hasn't impacted African culture, maybe you should read a book. And colonialism in Africa continues to this day and isn't a hundreds of years ago phenomenon. Heritage is a three pronged concept imo. Built heritage, natural heritage (landscape/environment of a place) and cultural heritage (music, dance, sport etc.) The first two parts mentioned above have been irrevocably damaged by European colonialism on the continent. Likewise the third, particularly considering the straight line carving up of African countries for European benefit. Falcon' s explanation of this above.
  11. Agreed He close game bud. Everything seemed to go in for me in this one. My finishing has improved a lot the last couple of months. Always a pleasure mate, catch you again soon.
  12. Agreed Unlucky bud. A pleasure as always. Hopefully we will still have games in some division next season.
