  Arthur Griffith - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Arthur Griffith (not Arthur Griffiths as his name is sometimes misspelled) was born in Dublin, Ireland on March 31, 1872, of distant Welsh lineage, and was educated by the Irish Christian Brothers.
Griffith was elected a Sinn Féin MP in the East Cavan by-election of mid-1918, and Sinn Féin routed the Irish Parliamentary Party at the 1918 general election.
Griffith was, however, to a great extent merely a figurehead as President of the second Dail Eireann and his relations with Michael Collins, head of the new Provisional Government were somewhat tense.

Griffith was in effect a one-man propaganda machine responsible for writing, editing, financing and even, up until the last years of his career, setting the type of his own papers.
GRIFFITH was first and foremost a propagandist for a political cause which until 1916 no one other than himself, and a small number of enthusiasts dotted around the country, really believed in.
Griffith belonged to a generation of tabloid nationalists, among them most notably the redoubtable DP Moran of the Leader, who, before a incestuous audience, indulged in petty, internecine slagging matches, invented little controversies, and endlessly debated the principles of nationality: the subtext of which may well have been minor circulation wars.

 Arthur Griffith
Griffith proposed that Ireland must act as a separate nation, possessing its own language, literature, traditions, business sector, etc. Griffith was imprisoned several times in his life for his roles in the Easter Rising and Bloody Sunday.
Griffith called Michael Collins, rather famously, "the man who won the war." Not long after, unfortunately, Collins and Griffith experienced a rift in their relationship that was likely never fully repaired.
Griffith believed that the division of the Irish government into two parts, the Dáil and the Provisional Government, was ludicrous and unproductive.

 Founding_of_Sinn_Fein
Griffith, holding that what he called “sovereign independence” was a more suitable aim than a republic, proposed an amendment calling for an end to the “useless, degrading and demoralising policy” of Irish attendance at Westminster, and the substitution of the policy of the Hungarian deputies of 1861.
Griffith recommended that the Irish MPs withdraw from Westminster and set up what he called a “Council of 300” to lay down a national policy which would be implemented by the local-government bodies and obeyed voluntarily by the people.
Griffith was especially impressed by the views of the Bengal leader, Bipin Chandra Pal, a forerunner of Gandhi, who urged Indians not to hate the British but to develop an attitude of what he called “benevolent indifference” to them.

Indeed, Griffith must be spinning in his grave at the political shambles which the modern Provisional republican movement has created 100 years on from the launch of the party in Dublin.
Griffith was a separatist, not a republican and believed passionately in the concept of passive resistance, not the mass slaughter tactics of the Provos.
Griffith would have died of shame, not exhaustion, in 1922 had he known his party was to become the apologists for ethnic cleansing, punishment beatings, and - according to Chief Constable Hugh Orde - the biggest bank heist ever on the island.

 This Month in Celtic History - November 2004
Griffith thought the solution of a single monarch simultaneously occupying the thrones of two otherwise independent countries would be a compromise that would satisfy the majority of Irish nationalists as well as conservative unionists.
Griffith’s endorsement of monarchism raised quite a few eyebrows in Irish republican circles, especially to those few who knew that Griffith was a sworn-in member of the underground Irish Republican Brotherhood, the organizational continuation of the Fenian rebels of years before.
Griffith’s stated intention at the time was not to set up a rival organization to the Irish Parliamentary Party but rather to create a political ferment that would eventually goad that party into adopting his ideas of parliamentary abstentionism and economic self-reliance.

Griffith arranged for Emily to meet Michael Collins to see if she might be of use in the fight; not only was her violent prose hindering his efforts, but she scared the shit out of him, as he wrote to fellow newspaperman, Liam "Chivas" Reagal:
She was definitely associated with both Collins and Griffith in the minds of the nationalists, and several attempts were made on her life, one of which was only foiled because of the Bullet Brolly she carried with her always, and a half-digested lunch of bangers and champie.
