Inspire a Nation the Gift that keeps Giving

Europe Renaissance

Did you ever pause when reading a passage or a quote that jolted your senses when you were reading whatever book was in your lap? The veteran writer Michael Walsh over the years occasionally did so. Unable or unwilling to let an inspiring passage slip like moon dust through his fingers he assiduously kept those sayings he thought of special merit.

These, he thought, will one day fill the pots of gold found at the end of most people’s rainbows. The talented writer’s adagio of adages and truisms over many years were meticulously stored for posterity.

The award-winning writer often proven to be a prophet had no clear idea of what he might do with his growing collection of sayings coined by history’s greatest thinkers.

Into the Aladdin’s Cave went the most remarkable but unforgettable thoughts of Europe’s great composers, writers and philosophers. The period being irrelevant his collection of…

The Stigma Enigma a Fusillade of City Mayhem

Europe Renaissance

‘You had the motive.’

Jack Scarlett appeared not to have heard the question as he gazed at a blank spot on the wall of the police station’s interrogation room.


‘I wasn’t sure if it was a statement or a question,’ the suspect replied in a monotone voice.

Proficient in body language, the questioning cop displayed impeccable timing. It was a gift he had inherited from Sting Ferguson. His since retired mentor had once earned considerable respect for his success rate in bringing the city’s felons to justice.

Coolly weighing the suspected serial killer up, Detective Chief Inspector Eric Jansen analysed each blink of the cold-blooded killer’s eyelids. At one point he thought he detected a nervous tic in the otherwise impassive stillness of his Scarlett’s features.

Increasingly aware that this was not going to be an easy case to crack the senior cop had little choice but to persevere…

Sadly, few boys these days have meaningful relationships with male mentors and father figures, men who can teach and inspire them. Some boys grow up without having been taught by a male teacher or are taught by teachers who have no life or work experience outside of a classroom.

LEFT: Michael Walsh and his older brother pictured with their father Patrick Roe McLaughlin. By the time he had reached his 40th birthday, Patrick had fought frontline in the Irish War Against the Black and Tans, in the Irish War of Independence, Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) and as a flight engineer 1st Class he flew Spitfires and Hurricanes – but not in battle.

Many young males go through education taught only by female schoolteachers as alpha-males have abandoned that career. The boys in many a modern British home may have several ‘fathers’ over time. How times have changed.

As a youngster…

Allied War Crimes that defy imagination and avoid publicity

Europe Renaissance

An exhibition has opened in Berlin dedicated to the 14 million ethnic-German expellees who were expelled by the triumphant Soviet, British and American allies from their former German homelands at the end of World War II.

After the British and American forces gifted huge swathes of German territory to the Soviet Union from 1944, 14 million ethnic Germans were driven out of their homelands of 1,000 years by the marauding UK/US sponsored Red Army.

The subject of Allied mass murder amounting to multiple genocides has long been a taboo topic. The tragedy of the Expulsion of Ethnic Germans is largely ignored and unknown in the Russian Federation and their Capitalist West cohorts.

Washington-approved Chancellor Angela Merkel opened the Centre for Flight, Expulsion, Reconciliation on June 21th. It is an exhibition that takes pains to put the experiences of Germany’s 14million World War II displaced expellees, and of the experiences ofrefugees…

A reminder that the real monsters of World War II were the Allies

Europe Renaissance

The 60th anniversary of apportioning of overrun Germany was followed by the sickening division of what was once Europe’s greatest city by the West and the Soviet Union. Mainstream media having earlier praised to the heavens the Stalinist Soviet Union pirouetted. The media – for a naïve public, appeared hostile to their former allies to whom they had handed 21 European nations to as recently as 1945.

Barbed wire barriers at the Brandenburg Gate were replaced by the Berlin Wall in 1961

How ironic when the same swallow anything British and the citizens of the West had been told the war was all about protecting Poland’s independence. Poland too was handed over to the Soviet Red Army in 1945. Until August 13, 1961the people of the Divided City of Berlin were still able to move around freely in the city. That is, until August 13, 1961.
