The 1916 Rising was one of the greatest moments of the human spirit. It stands with the greatest feats of Classical Greece as a new departure in human history. It's importance to world history far outshines WW1, which was really just an old world destroying itself without any idea of what might come in its place. The 1916 Rising was, above all, a work of art. It transcended the Liberal politics of its day, and continues to transcend any Liberal dispensation. It calls out eternally to a new beginning for Ireland and for Europe. That calling has not yet been answered, not really answered, but we all hear it and many of us do want to answer. Want the strength and the discipline to answer.
