Blog description.

Accentuating the Liberal in Classical Liberal: Advocating Ascendency of the Individual & a Politick & Literature to Fight the Rise & Rise of the Tax Surveillance State. 'Illigitum non carborundum'.

Liberty and freedom are two proud words that have been executed from the political lexicon: they were frog marched and stood before a wall of blank minds, then forcibly blindfolded, and shot, with the whimpering staccato of ‘equality’ and ‘fairness’ resounding over and over. And not only did this atrocity go unreported by journalists in the mainstream media, they were in the firing squad.

The premise of this blog is simple: the Soviets thought they had equality, and welfare from cradle to grave, until the illusory free lunch of redistribution took its inevitable course, and cost them everything they had. First to go was their privacy, after that their freedom, then on being ground down to an equality of poverty only, for many of them their lives as they tried to escape a life behind the Iron Curtain. In the state-enforced common good, was found only slavery to the prison of each other's mind; instead of the caring state, they had imposed the surveillance state to keep them in line. So why are we accumulating a national debt to build the slave state again in the West? Where is the contrarian, uncomfortable literature to put the state experiment finally to rest?

Chris Trotter’s Everyone Contradiction

I was surprised to find I agreed with the central tenet of Chris Trotter’s Press op-ed today. On listening to a radio news item with his daughter, about how ‘everyone’ agreed we couldn’t afford superannuation on its current path, he told her, wisely, ‘Whenever you hear a news bulletin like that, you should ask yourself who this ‘Everyone’ is’.

I would only ask Mr Trotter, when writing his every other op-ed, to himself consider who this ‘everyone’ is, when he demands that everyone be taxed to finance his violent, slave-based,  society, because I don’t buy into it, and know of lots of others who don’t either, but our hands are forced behind our backs while our pockets are picked by his tyranny of everyone, and we don’t get the choice of living our lives in freedom from them, or him. While I don’t know who everyone is, I do know Mr Trotter’s social democracy based on need, makes me everyone’s slave.

And for the record, no, we can’t afford superannuation as it currently is; private provision is the only answer, and the only answer, ironically, for everyone.


  1. yes, and then Trotter says ' we should be proud of the super scheme'. When any body tells me I should be proud, or I should do this and think this, I ask why. And the answer is I should because Trotter from the extreme socialist left thinks I should

  2. ... and then make sure you're protecting your wallet, because guess whose going to pay for what they think.
