People are not fleeing Britain to be fed. There isn’t anorchy in the streets.
You haven’t shown that the reason the UK and US are wealthy is down to exploitation. You said that it was their armies that is why they have wealth, well then why did the Soviet Union fail? They had a great big army and lots of natural resources, but it ate itself. The UK and US are relatively wealthy nations because of their democracy and mostly pro capitalist traits. Nations and empires rise and fall, and it’s the economy that causes that. Britain nearly fell off a ledge in the 1970s- due to an economy not fit to provide the British people what they needed. Recession, inflation, industrial unrest and the IMF.
It wasn’t an army that made Ireland quite a wealthy nation, but our more or less open economy. We have one of the most progressive tax systems in the world. We tax more of our wealth than the OECD average. What’s funny is though that yourself and all the other lefties love to have a cry at the likes of the US (see above). You’ll bang on about these evil corporations, but seemingly are desperate for Ireland to take that 13 billion from Apple and to spend spend and spend in Ireland. These so called principled people fall over when there is a chance to get their paws on more money. As with Chavez and Maduro- it’s all about getting your piece and hiding behind flowery language like equality.
