    Hopefully, my dream come true. Government issued food and clothing and stints working on farms and in factories. The dream.

    Considering the number of quite right wing politicians who have attained the position of Taoiseach and in government id say no...

    There is a growth in support for the further left but it is at the expense of the center left... Labour are nowhere.... not attracting votes, loosing respected stalwarts like Bree and Shorthall...

    Right enough of the trolling threads Hawley, Ireland isn't perfect, nowhere is, but it does 99.9% of us just fine. The good news here is, if Ireland isn't up got your standards, whether it was a boat or plane that brought you here from the UK, both modes of transportation operate in either direction.

    Let us know how you get on back home with Brexit etc.

    Yours etc etc, the rest of Ireland.

    this is happening in the uk ,usa,ireland, house prices are going up, earnings are not growing at a similar pace, if a car goes at 80mph, and you can run at 15mph you,ll never catch the car .So gen z is really screwed, it used to be a deal, go to school,study,go to college, get a good job, maybe a degree, buy a house.when most young people live at home or live in mediocre rental units its a disaster for social and political stability.That contract now longer exists now most young people may never be able to buy a house, when a basic house is 400k. so young people are becoming more left wing or more angry or less likely to vote for fianna fail or fine gael, when both partys are broadly middle of the road,free market , mayeb fine gael is more liberal and less republican.also people under 25 dont remember the ira, bombs going off, the troubles ,hunger strikes,bobby sands .the see sinn fein as a basic socialist /marxist party .

    ireland is a liberal capitalist country which provides a low tax for google,facebook etc

    Also gen z is the generation that will be mostly effected by climate change ,global warming ,the basic capitalistic system has no answer to climate change apart from asking for more tax breaks to maybe even consider switching over to more green energy sources .

    Class struggle: we are definitely seeing more politicized young cohort from the lower classes. We have more low class politicians from Sinn Fein and other urban parties than ever before. There's huge anger at the top people, calling them the landlord class. We will see a left wing government in place after the next election. Internationalism; Sinn Fein and Michael Higgins lauding Communist regimes such as Cuba and Venezuela. Higgins visited a Marxist revolutionary's grave in Italy on his visit there. Removal of Religion from society: One of the key tenets of Marxism. They regard it as a way in which the elite controlled the masses. We are seeing the removal of church from society. Sinn Fein are an aggressively anti-clerical party. Appeals to younger voters who are brought up to hate Catholic church.
