we can judge by the standards of the time when the potato crop failures across belguim northern franc germany and the ukraine didn't result in famine because those backward countries fed their citizens. the english on the other hand were committed to laissez faire capitalism, much like the neo liberals today, and that belief was akin to any other totalitarian belief and resulted in mass starvation of citizens, for their own good.

it is basic racism to suggest the english and their imperial leaders were not the cause of the mass deaths

"led to the land wars" of course
All this took time, as did the Russian Revolution
The first attempts at ending mass-starvation in Russia actually took place in 1905, when street demonstrations were fired on by Imperial Russian troops on the orders of the Tsar
Masses of protesters were sent to "Stailn's" gulags, which were well established as centres to suppress political unrest in Tolstoy's time, when he wrote his classic 'Retribution'
The inmates of these Gulags formed themselves into political resistance groups and a decade later, kicked the Tsarist regime into the history books

"Nowhere do the records of the great   famine record a situation to suggest even an embryonic revolution. "
The knock-on effect of the Famine to the land wars in order to win back the land seized by the landlords, the 1867 Fenian risings, the beginnings of the Home Rule Movement, and, when that failed, Easter week and the Irish War of Independence and eventually, the partial independence we have today
None of this would have happened had it not been for the brutal and inhuman manner in which the Famine had been used

Revolution:a forcible overthrow of a government or social order, in favour of a new system.

Nowhere do the records of the great   famine record a situation to suggest even an embryonic revolution. Crime figures rose, troops and police had to protect food shipments and at times attend evictions.
Localised protest occurred but nothing organised on a scale to support the idea of government overthrow.

Well "Jom" aside for now (how childish), what a shame you didn't revisit the Gaza thread before posting this tripe. The thread became infested by a concerted, non-stop tirade of extremely abusive postings from bobad and BeardedBruce in the last couple of days of its existence which is why I drew the attention of a moderator to it. The mods tend to avoid threads of that cesspool nature (they are more sane than the rest of us) and threads can run on past their sell-by date unnoticed. I'd like to hear from anyone here who's looked at the last couple of days of that thread who would still like to tell me that it had a constructive future. We are not bullies as you allege, and I for one was fairly inactive in that thread's latter stages, so your point about things "not going my way" so getting the thread closed falls, but there WAS a lot of bullying and hectoring going on from those two that rendered the thing a cancer on this forum.

"Stop making arguments up. You have zero justification for such a statement."
Doyou honestly believe that the British people were so docile and subservient as to accept locked warehouses full of food, forced emigrations and mass starvation
Stop being so dismissive of humanity
There is no doubt in my mind that they would have taken up arms in such a circumstances as they did during the Swing Riots, the Luddite Period and the Chartist demands - as teh Welsh did during the Rebecca riots and the toll gate protests
As it was, the evicted crofters resisted the clearances with force and they were a fraction as severe as The Famine
Starving people do not take starvation without resistance
Stop being abusive - even if such behaviour were acceptable, you are the last one to be in a position to talk down to people

Enough of this - you have just given away your your reason for being here which has nothing whatever to do with the debates that take place
JOM
Teribus's pathetic "insulting" name for me (which I grew rather fond of as an indication that he was desperately running out of ideas)
If this is is not a clue to your identity, it is a clear indication of where you are coming from
I'm not here to exchange insults with disaffected extremist right-wingers who can't raise themselves above the level of personal insulting and accuse others of exactly what motivated them - in one particular case, the recurring theme of antisemitism - big-time!
If you are not here to debate famines and their causes but rather, to turn these discussions into soapboxes for hatefests, you really need to go and let those ho genuinely wish to swap ideas get on with it

On the subject in hand - you have obviously not read John Reeds book and, until you have, you are not qualified to comment on it, let alone, condemn it out of hand
Reed was the only western eye-witness to have been present during the Russian Revolution and reported on it extensively
His account, far from being a propaganda exercise, was a detailed and well-documented account of a world shattering event - not a large book by any means, but crammed full of information of the events surrounding the revolution
There are other books from that time, - I've read some of them - but none contain such detail, particularly the differing debates
Far from being the work of a Soviet "dupe", it was disproved of highly by Stalin's regime - your "dupe" comes straight from the most dark period of our history when everything was being thrown at The Soviet Union and when Hitler was regarded as "a bulwark against Bolshevism" by western leaders, including Churchill
If Reed's account is "unreliable" - you need to show why it was; perhaps a good start might be to read it! - probably a ridiculous suggestion as far as you are concerned - books don't appear to be your thing: there is little evidence that they are in any of your arguments.

I have given what I know of the Irish Famine - it has been a life-long interest of mine as it is part of my own family history
It was, as far as I am concerned, a natural disaster deliberately manipulated, first by absentee English landlords to increase their land-ownings though mass evictions, and by English politicians to solve a centuries-old political 'Irish Problem'

As it was, on examination the 'natural disaster' aspect of the Famine is directly traceable back to farming methods forced on the Irish peasantry to fulfill Ireland's role in the British Empire as "Britannia's Breadbasket" - the popular name for Ireland at the time.
This led to farming families having to rely on one type of potato - the "LUMPER" - when that failed the source of nourishment of the Irish people disappeared and, despite the fact that there was four times the amount of food available to feed the Irish, they starved in their millions and as many were forced to emigrate - ethnic cleansing big-time.   

Had the Irish Famine occurred in , say the Midlands or the North of England and had been handled in the manner it was in Ireland, it would have brought about mass unrest, even revolution, as it did here
All the changes that have taken place since the middle of the nineteenth century are directly traceable back to what happened during and immediately following 'The Great Hunger'   

Regarding Famines in general - I came across this fascinating statement publicising a study on twentieth famines by a researcher for the INSTITUTE of DEVELOPMENT STUDIES
"The Institute of Development Studies (IDS) is a leading global institution for development research, teaching and learning, and impact and communications, based at the University of Sussex." hardly a politically-driven propaganda set-up
I haven't read the paper, but the introduction is enough to suggest that though famines are usually caused by natural phenomena, given the political and social will, they are well withing in grasp of governments to deal with the worst effects of them
In my opinion, in today's world that will has never existed, nor will it until the necessities of life are treated as a human right rather than a source of profit
You want to debate Famines - open your tightly -closed, aganda driven minds and do so - without the personal insults
Jim Carroll
Famine in the Twentieth Century Devereux, S., IDS Working Paper 105
Publisher IDS
More than 70 million people died in famines in the twentieth century. Stephen Devereux has compiled data from over 30 major famines and has assessed ,the success of some parts of the world, notably China, the Soviet Union, India and Bangladesh in apparently eradicating mass mortality food crises.
He contrasts this with the experience of sub-Saharan Africa, where famines triggered by the relationship between drought and civil war have become endemic since the late 1960s.
Devereux argues that if famine is to be eradicated during the twenty-first century, it requires not only technical capacity in terms of food production and distribution, but also substantially more political will, at national and international levels, than has been seen to date.

No it was not - my "diatribe" was totally on subject and it was not a diatribe - it was an argument - unlike the stream of abuse you and your friends specialise in
I did not introduce the subject of antisemitism to this thread as you suggest - Beareded Bruce did when he (wrongly) accused Ireland of being such unjustly, by the way) and (equally unjustly) suggested that I supported the IRA
I didn't respond at the time, but your continual evasive abuse gave me the opportunity to clear up both Bruce's point and your accusation of my antisemitism by pointing out your own (still no response from you)
For the sake of this discussion I suggest we leave it there
If you have any reply to the points I have made - to anything - feel free to give it (preferably without abuse)
Otherwise, I suggest you leave this thread and leave me with my opinions of you before hey sink any lower than they already are

"You are a thread abuser here."
I have put up my arguments with the facts I have at hand - all checkable and all open to argument - you offer none - only personal abuse
that's all you and your friend, Bobad, Iains and Keith appear to be capable of
I heve never had a thread closed - nor have I ever been warned of by behaviour
You want to prove me wrone - provide contrary evidence and disprove what I have said - it really never gets any more difficult that that - that's what we are supposed to be here for

JC:

You are no clearer now than in the posts I earnestly urged you to explicate (in another thread, no less). Now you are bringing it into this thread and labeling me all sorts of things with no justification. And when I bring up a valid famine you pay it short shrift with no attempt to marshal an argument.

You are a thread abuser here.

And I DO think you are a Stalin fanboy.

"No just extremely happy I am not a tunnel visioned, constantly swearing dinosaur like you."
No - you are just mindlessly abusive
Sorry - not following you Rag
This no-brain accuses me of being a Jew-hater, yoet when he is presented with w blow-by-blow account of Keith defending wartime antisemitism of the extreme kind (at the time the Jewish People were being made ready for mass extermination) he refuses to comment on it, stupidly claiming he didn't understand it
His priorities are plain and the interests of the Jewish People don't come into them
What's the problem?

"Hoops Mr Carroll, Hoops !!!! :"

"More from our resident defender of The Jewish People who can't bring himself around to condemning extreme antisemitism by a friend"

Jim, Am I reading this wrong or have you got your wires crossed?

"And of course the 5 million plus starved Ukrainians were just a sign of bad bureaucracy. "
Beaten heads down by what happened before that event and what has happened since
Like Keith's antisemitism - you choose not to see that either
None of this has anything to do with religion of course, unless you wish to attribute his behaviour to his Jesuit training - some have!
I hope you are not listing a claim that I have ever supported Stalin in any way shape or form to your rapidly growing list of porkies!
Wouldn't put it it past you - honesty doesn't seem to be one of your stronger points

And of course the 5 million plus starved Ukrainians were just a sign of bad bureaucracy. No politics and no religion there. And Stalin was just doing the best he knew how!

“Catholic shackles visibly loosened.”
What an incredible partisan statement !!!
Centuries of English rule guaranteed that religion would be a crucial part of Irish history
The dissolution of the Monasteries, outlawing of the Catholic religion, the persecution and execution of priests guaranteed the Church the support of the people
Ireland is scattered with “Mass Rocks” where Catholics were forced to practice their religion secretly – two of them within a half-hours drive of my home.
Britain forced a partition based on giving Ireland Independence of the basis there being a six county state for Protestants – their original intention of a nine-county state (the whole of Ulster) was hastily abandoned when somebody did the math and realised that it would produce a Catholic majority.
The constitution of the sic counties was based on religion – giving the land-owning protestants the vote and deprive the Catholic third of the population of a say in their lives
The ant- Catholic riots, the boycott of Catholic businesses and trades and the refusal of many firms to employ Catholics acted as a daily and very visible wedge between the two communities as have the religion based triumphalist marches, which even spread to British cities like Glasgow and Liverpool
Members of my family fled Derry in the 1950s when their home was burned down by Protestant mobs objecting to “having to live next door to “Taigues”   
No so long ago Catholic schoolchildren were forced to take a different and much longer rout to school because of howling and threatening mobs
It was extreme Protestanint who introduced the gun into twenty century Irish politics and the first shots of the last “Troubles” were fired by Loyalist murderous thugs
“Catholic shackles” – what part of the Planet Zog do you live on Iains?
All religions have their own brand of chains
