For Late I.R.A. Leader Martin McGuinness, Social Justice’s Path to “Reconciliation and Peace-building” Was Paved Through Terror

Whether one remembers Martin McGuinness as a freedom fighter or terrorist, or more recently, a “peacemaker,” one thing is certain: The path to Hell is paved with good intentions.
