I have a dream...

I have a dream.

Not too long to go now before we see the movers and shakers in Kildare Street, without pay or pensions, rattling their begging bowls looking for a handout.

It’s not going to happen of course. Who in their right minds would help those who claimed to be blindly following the orders of their masters?

Those still employed who don’t wish to believe it is going to happen will soon have plenty of time on their hands to study what Karl Marx had to say about the shark feeding that would inevitably accompany the fall of the capitalist system. Get your copy now while you can still afford it. I have not read it myself. I am too busy reading all about it in every media outlet — although I did have the dubious benefit of a Joycean scholar distilling down its details for me.

In the meantime, you could do worse than read the ‘I have a dream’ speech Martin Luther King Jr made in August 1963.
