Wake-up call against oppression
■ Larissa Nolan’s article (‘Hijackers of the left have twisted liberal ideals’, Irish Independent, June 13) is insightful, intelligent, prophetic.
I was encouraged and refreshed that out of the dominant voice of liberalism, the oppressor of our current historical time, emerges a voice of prophecy, of clarity and, dare I say, of truth. Thank you, Larissa.
Her points highlight for me the basic fact that in every time a dominant voice emerges to rule, to dictate, to silence. This is not just intelligent – it is of critical importance, urgent and revealing danger.
We, in this age of political correctness, of liberalism and fake news, are keepers of oppression and disciples of the oppressor.
The reduction of democracy to the dictates of the loudest voice and the marketing skill is a dark night for humanity.
Thank you, Larissa Nolan. Let us hope that your wake-up call is heard in the halls of power.
