Don't blame all of us for economic crisis

BRENDAN Keenan states that "our foolishness" has removed our national sovereignty, both morally and legally (Irish Independent, October 21).

Then he advocates a whole lot of measures that "we" must "apply ourselves seriously to" in order to solve our problems.

Brendan Keenan is wrong on one thing. It was not "our foolishness" that has us beholden to the EU, the International Monetary Fund or the dreaded bond markets. It was the arrogance, hubris and recklessness of a small number of people at the top in government, banks, construction, etc.
