An incredibly researched post on the values of our ancient Irish ancestors, from Ali. Our society would be far better if we lived by the same principles. There are some of us who, however imperfectly, do strive to live this way in our day to day lives. Our world is still incredibly violent and stuck in the fear of separation, the pain of turning away from each other, refusing people who look and think differently, standing by the wrong things, deceiving ourselves, trading respect for whatever seems more important. It can’t go on that way. I hope for a braver, wiser, interdependent world, and aim to live accordingly. Our ancestors struggled with these same things, but their laws and values shed light on a way of being human that we collectively seem to have forgotten.
