Title: British war strategy, the SOE and the IRA
The Special Operations Executive (SOE) was established in 1940 to support or create resistance movements in Europe and organise widespread “sabotage and subversion” as an extension of the British war effort. It was consciously outside and contrary to the “Rules of War” and was accompanied by military coups and sabotage raids organised by other branches of the secret services in pursuit of British war aims.

Title: The Crisis In The North (again)
Britain divided Ireland and kept part of it under its own control but refused to govern it. Government was farmed out to a local majority which was locked in combat with the local minority when the deed was done. The farming out of government of the region, outside the political life of the state, preserved the condition of conflict that was there at the outset. The minority community, whose energy was denied an outlet in the meaningful politics of the state, eventually made so much trouble that the state abolished the majority rule principle in the farmed-out government, and made it a rule that representatives of both communities should hold governing ministries as of right, and that these ministries should not be subordinate to a Cabinet, or to the 'Parliamentary Assembly' on which you could believe the whole thing was based if you were careful not to think about it.

Title: Sovereignty And Economic Recovery
Fianna Fáil-Green governance of the economic crisis has operated to date on foreign policy instinct. The manner in which the crisis unfolded and negative commentary on Irish policy by British and European politicians and the British/Irish press has made this necessarily so. As Irish economic meltdown and the alleged hollowness of the “Celtic Tiger” were being proclaimed from London’s Fleet Street, and reiterated in our national press, the country’s credit worthiness went into freefall. Whatever about possible alternatives, the Irish Bank Guarantee Scheme, denounced by EU President Sarkozy among others, rapidly stabilised the financial system and was soon being emulated elsewhere. This occurred against a background of the failure of the Euro-Zone to operate as a coherent currency interest in the global crisis. A cabal of European Big powers (including the hostile Sterling currency zone) presumed Lisbon gave them a basis for functioning on behalf of ‘Europe’ and they proceeded to do so. But, though the Bank Guarantee, and subsequently the creation of the National Asset Management Agency (NAMA) and the December 2009 budget – again whatever about possible alternatives – the Irish Government created the type of basis for recovery that has restored national and international confidence (the core factor in functioning capitalism) without resorting to society-destroying deflationism pur. The state operated competently and apparently successfully in the face of UK-EU advice to the contrary.

Title: China & Greece
Is the capitalist development of the world endangering its existence? We don't know. It might be that Climategate has exposed the whole thing as a scientific sham. Or it might be that the world is being destroyed by capitalism. If capitalism is destroying the world, the nature of the system is such that there is little prospect that it will stop doing it.

For many centuries China was the biggest and most economically developed civilisation in the world. It never endangered the existence of the world. It never even interfered with the way of life of other societies with the object of making the whole world a replica of China. It let the rest of the world be and it was not tormented by the thought that there were great differences in it. It was content to live its own life and let others live theirs.
