What gives useless UN the right to lecture us?

With the year that's in it, there has been an awful lot of nonsense spouted about the fight for Irish freedom.
According to the Official Ireland narrative, we're a people who were prepared to lay down their lives for liberty, but history has shown that we simply fought for the right to pick our own masters - not so much self-inflicted slavery, more a voluntary intellectual servitude.
If Perfidious Albion was our original unwelcome oppressor, the Church was handed that role with a ribbon wrapped around it. Now that we have managed to break that clerical stranglehold, we have simply gone and found another global organisation to tell us what to do - the UN.
