only anti-people and against economic progress, but equally against liberal education and scientific and technological advance’. As he mentioned in Corofin, Illich was also accustomed to dismissals for being mad and having little understanding of the human condition. Explaining his abhorrence of microphones, Illich made it clear that he had no desire to ‘speak at’ people for the evening in Corofin, preferring instead to engage in conversation. What followed was far from the conventions of polite conversation, with Illich’s ideas and intimidating conversation style

was himself sceptical about the degree to which individuals who had not benefited from a rigorous liberal education could govern themselves effectively; but contemporary theorists seem much more willing to place their faith in the materialist spur to the development of responsible self-government.

organiser is an expert in a particular field, knowing a lot within a very narrow band. In state politics the organisers are the strategists who know how to efficiently organise the resources of the state to achieve specific ends. Their strength over the idealists is their professional knowledge, but their weakness is their inability to see outside their narrow field. They also lack the broad liberal education of the idealists and are therefore not naturally democratic. ‘The great organizer is the great realist … his imagination turns to “ways and means” and not to elusive

, inconceivable as it might seem now, a Unionist Party proposal, from the liberal Education Minister, Basil McIvor, to begin integrating education in Northern Ireland was endorsed by the SDLP ( ibid. : 45–6). Bloomfield said of Faulkner and his SDLP partner, Gerry Fitt: ‘Yes, they got on amazingly well.’ 81 While accepting there was a ‘personality conflict’ between Roy Bradford (UUP) and Paddy
