I’ve been thinking further about the changes that have taken place in Ireland over the past few years. Many words come to mind immediately – brash, self-confident, multicultural, materialistic, dynamic, aggressive, etc., etc. Some of my more recent posts have veered somewhat in this direction.

 

One word, however, strikes a dissonant chord.

Smug.

We have become very smug about our country’s new-found success. As if nothing bad can or will ever happen again. We have achieved, and now we can just sit back, max out the credit card, let the money roll in and lecture everyone else about how they are doing it all wrong.

 

Well, I think Dick Wolf’s quote says it all:

As soon as you become complacent, your show gets cancelled“.
