sure it has, just read the initial text on this subject. It lambasts Higgins. Higgins is a gentleman who has no blood on his hands hence the pol pot distaste for a man of his ilk.
By rushing into your attack on Northern Ireland just shows where you are coming from.
Agree that it does go off subject.

Donker, how does one discern between a genuine positive outlook and a false positive outlook?
Well I guess one has to be honest with oneself and weigh up all the facts and try to be impartial. It can get complicated as different people may have different deeply held opinions, life experiences or even realities. Objectivity, some say, it is impossible to acheive, perhaps this is why we need the rule of law. Still, being positive is the only way isn't it? I mean where would the world be if we were all negative shoegazers?
