Do you mean that they should accept austerity as the proper consequences for neoliberalism?

And you buy in the nationalistic irish narrative: Ireland as perpetual victim, never responsible for anything.

Ireland is a state, not a person. Since my argument when it comes to irish debt is very similar to my arguments about greek and icealandic debt, I believe that nationalistic irish narrative might not be the common demoninator.

To me you appear to have an either/or approach to responsibility, where ECB can not be responsible for anything as all is the fault of Ireland. Could you please tell me if it is the people of Ireland, the politicians of Ireland or some other person/group that you hold responsible?
