    Are Polls Meant To Inform Or Influence?

    Are Polls Meant To Inform Or Influence?

    While this is a complete assumption, I would have to say that when polling started out on a serious level, it was probably intended to be a reflection of what people thought at any given time about any subject. As the practice has evolved, things have gotten more complicated and more outlets have ventured into the polling game, things have likely changed. The results of polling from the 2016 Presidential Election are a major indication of this fact.

    The Fruit of Neoliberalism

    The Fruit of Neoliberalism

    Politics is a tangled web of lies. Purposefully Spun; insidiously premier, [from descending memos] of a high-powered neoliberal "Deep State." This coup of manufactured consent is orchestrated with overwhelming force; thusly, hammered via its indestructible-propaganda-apparatus - the Mainstream Media, as the right wing tends to reference. Additionally, this apparatus incorporates Hollywood influence and the assistance of social media technocrats in Silicon Valley, to produce what is admittedly a well oiled Cabal; persistent in action by way of business interests, war profiteers, and other deeply pocketed tycoons of corporate industry. There is a two-faced reality that transpires: behind the scenes of decorum, conventional wisdom and social norms; the monstrous prime evil evidence of organized and discrete shadow government influence.

    The Week That Could Have Changed Irish History, But Didn't.

    The Week That Could Have Changed Irish History, But Didn't.

    In a tumultuous week in Irish politics, Hozier, among others, criticised the Irish Government on Twitter in the days following the controversial vote which inadvertently ‘seals’ the archives detailing the abuse suffered by Women and Children “tantamount to human trafficking” at the hands of the Catholic Church and The State. The Bill which brought an end to the Commission Investigation has left a nation with whiplash, and as we try to pick up the pieces of what happened - it is probably easiest to start at the beginning.

I will show you that the collective global community can single-handedly save the environment within a projected 20 years time through math and pragmatic thinking.
