brentan comments on Feb 25, 2019:
I think hierarchies, like capitalism, bring the cream to the top. From what I've read, hierarchy is the natural order in society and as old as time. It's flaw is not its very existence but the excesses and tyrannies that humans bring to it. Efforts in the past to get rid of hierarchies have resulted in horrors worse than the crimes they set out to end so I think working to moderate hierarchy is the best approach.

brentan comments on Feb 24, 2019:
I agree. Successful people are mostly measured in economic terms. The recipients of their success are consumers. It's a good thing when it's not considered everything. The other people speak to our humanity and our quality of life in non-economic terms.

brentan comments on Feb 23, 2019:
*I love the way real art opens up doorways to other works and leads you to further literary/artistic exploration.* This is so true and I think it also points to a thread leading all the way back to the first expressions of what it is to be a human being.
Ocasio Cortez is bad news for America and what’s even worse is most of the democrat presidential ...
brentan comments on Feb 23, 2019:
What was written in the paper would be economic bad news for any country as things stand but something needs to change to stop damaging the earth. Maybe some other group should write a paper showing what they think should be done or why things should stay as they are.

brentan comments on Feb 23, 2019:
Wasn't the concert scheduled for yesterday, Friday? I don't understand the reports coming out about it. Such as 'Thousands attended' but it seems it did not go ahead.If it does eventually go ahead, and it is televised, it will be the first big concert I don't watch.

brentan comments on Feb 23, 2019:
My first album was James Taylor's Mud Slide Slim and the Blue Horizon. The double=sleeve cover was really beautiful. My first 45 was Joe Cocker's version of You've Got A Friend. That caused an uproar in the house.

Do you make a conscious effort to be happy and the best person you can be - or do you just go about ...
brentan comments on Feb 23, 2019:
I think I've decided what makes me happy and every day is pretty much the same but quite pleasant. I could only suggest to people to find what they love and develop it. For me, it's most literature. For others, maybe sports, travel, helping others etc. There are a huge amount of people who cannot even aspire to loving anything because of their disadvantaged upbringing and I feel sure the only thing they can do to try to make life bearable is take drugs.
A toast!!!

Who is Socialist?
brentan comments on Feb 23, 2019:
The point, I think, is that no-one in the public eye in politics is suggesting socialism. Some promote social democracy, which is based on capitalism and wants to extend pre-existing social systems in America to close the immense gap between the haves and have-nots. Labelling these politicians as socialist is dishonest.

brentan comments on Feb 23, 2019:
I hardly use the site. The negative comments in my religious groups on FB have become very repetitive. I'm staying because so many of my apps are linked to FB and I'm too lazy to break the links and make new IDs and passwords.

brentan comments on Feb 23, 2019:
I've read a theory that consciousness is out there, external to the brain which works like a TV transmitter to conduct consciousness into our bodies. This would mean that when the brain is damaged, it struggles as a transmitter to function but consciousness is still intact, just not getting through. Then when we die, consciousness continues, not needing a transmitter anymore.

brentan comments on Feb 22, 2019:
Capitalism is great for promoting ingenuity and high standards but the inequality between the haves and the have-nots is far too wide. Social democracy has no issues with capitalism but tries to lessen the inequality between the two.

Ian Dury and the Blockheads. - Sex and Drugs and Rock n Roll. Live on TOTP 1977. [youtu.be]
brentan comments on Feb 22, 2019:
A talented man. I saw the Blockheads at a venue called the Stardust in Dublin where dozens of people were burned to death just a few years later. They played very well but my lingering memory was the aggression that came from the stage and permeated the air. Perhaps it was part of their persona; I just don't know.
So, it's Friday... what's up in your world?

We might gradually recede from memory into universal consciousness but for all we know it might be a good thing. The going, going, gone theme of the poem is very nicely developed. Another good one!

Why blame the voodoo medicine man in Africa?
brentan comments on Feb 22, 2019:

Two great people. Stephen is well-known so enough said. Gay Byrne is local Irish talent but he almost single-handedly brought Ireland into the 20th century at a time when we were dominated by the Catholic Church. He did it through a weekly TV show called The Late Late Show.
