Is it that radical?

I do not disagree that the state is mired in corruption in Ireland, yet we Communists do not advocate for the maintenance of the existing State as it is and simply concentration of authority and ownership in its hands. A social revolution will transform the mechanisms and structures of democracy as we understand them and deepen, strengthen and widen the democratic nature of society.  Taking this into consideration, I pose a number of questions with the prefix: Is it that radical?

 

For us to collectively own, manage and benefit from the natural resources of Ireland?

For us to collectively own, manage and benefit from the ownership of our own airline in Ireland?

For us to collectively own, manage and benefit from the ownership of all major industry and commercial institutions in Ireland?

For us to collectively own, manage and benefit from all public services, institutions and infrastructure?

For us to collectively own, manage and benefit from a national and non-commercial banking system?

For us to collectively, own, manage and benefit from one, secular education system?

For us to collectively own, manage and benefit from one secular, free on demand health system?

For us to collectively, own, manage and benefit from one state owned tourist board?

 

There are these demands, yet so much more that would reshape the very basis of our society and be able to provide not only the necessities of life for the people of Ireland but a higher and more fulfilling standard for living.

 

Tell me then, what is so radical?
