A.E. AND THE IRISH COOPERATIVE MOVEMENT 162 On the other hand, the extent to which Dillonite nationalism mobilized press and parliament to isolate the cooperative movement in the interests of securing a stranglehold by the middlemen in rural Ireland over the small farming communities indicates the degree to which the movement threatened the forces of conservative bourgeois nationalism that sought to establish a position of hegemony in Ireland after the Parnellite split. A.E.’s opposition to middle-class interest groups in Ireland during this period can be seen in terms of Standish O’Grady’s aristocratic aversion to bourgeois mercantilism. But it can also be regarded as a transformation of what, in O’Grady’s Toryism and the Tory Democracy, was an essentially conservative stance, to a radical if not revolutionary position— given that O’Grady’s foremost concern for securing the interests of the landed gentry became, in the writing of A.E. on cooperation, just one aspect of the articulation of an organicist philosophy of nationhood.
