What Maggie M. is saying about this Meetup Group

The talk wasn't terribly engaging or enlightening but I will read the book and see if it can give me more satisfaction. One intriguing idea Mr. Kelly has come up with: the idea that, for the most part, the British allowed moral ideology to overwhelm simple human compassion. They really believed that the Irish needed to work for any food relief, for the sake of their moral fiber; that the Irish needed to learn to be self-reliant and independent of government handouts despite the fact that they were starving and dying in huge numbers. Kelly said he finds similar ideological blindness in the current Republican platform. I'm inclined to entertain that idea.
