You imagine or you think?
The inference is quite clear from Kitty and her standard line of reporting. In her head it’s all because we don’t give enough, but where is the balance?
- chap mentions he dropped out of school and did FÁS courses. Who paid for that?
- chap mentions “the drugs came along” and he therefore couldn’t hold down a job. They didn’t just come along, he chose to do them.
- chap mentions college wasn’t put in front of him. By who? Ireland has some of the lowest cost third level education in the Western Hemisphere, it being free for for under privelaged people.
- Kitty talks about how filthy the area is. Whose fault is that? She juxtaposes that with clean Ballsbridge. Does Kitty realize why private housing estate are actually so clean? Has she ever heard of residents associations? If you walk around an area like Poppintree in Ballymun, the majority of homes are kept clean and tidy, but there is a strong minority who do not give a flying fuck and have rubbish strewn across the place. That is a culture failure, but in Kittyland, that is the State’s fault.
Kitty diagnoses the problem but doesn’t understand the cure. She and her ilk will always blame the mythical hand of government and society. The problem is personal responsibility and culture. You can’t say that though as it is “vilification” in loony lefty land. People like herself and the hard left will always default to this and they are ably abetted by the Poverty industry who get unlimited amounts of time to petition for more money in our media. There is no leadership in these communities and from politicians, they go for the easy answers. It’s always somebodies else’s fault and the money tree will fix all.
The majority of journalists in Ireland default to the above analysis as they are incapable of critical thinking or having actual expertise in an area. The fact that you have failed in life to join this cohort is pretty funny.
