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?

Never Were Truer Words Written Than This Headline:

If you read my blog byline. Then remember that the a-priori feature Bill English outlined in this year’s budget was the extra funding allocation for  IRD audit. Finally, remember that the gap between the badly named government 'revenue', and increasing government borrowing and spending - highlighting the doublespeak of spending caps and zero budgets - is going to be filled, according to Mr Dunne this week, by the blood of taxpayers. Then the Herald’s headline this morning seems rather to apt.

Yes. In the final analysis that’s how the big state always works - force: nice to see some honesty reported in the MSM.

And quite apart from those departments that enforce the fencing racket run by state to fund the Ponzi scheme of welfare, Lindsay Mitchell has some more realistic expectations about the government’s announced plans yesterday to reduce beneficiary numbers by 30%, and I would ask in relation to the improved state educational targets being prophesised (for I can’t see them being based on the cold hard facts of any reality I live in), how does a chief bureaucrat in four years change a dumbed down culture that has been seventy years in the making to this point? They can’t. We have children who can barely speak anymore. Although returning to teachers hitting targets in the schoolroom, that may, indeed, be a start. But as I've written previously, this marvelous sign of man's highest philosophical and political achievement, yet, Western classical liberalism, like the economies destroyed by Keynesian Statism, is irredeemably, over ...

As is breakfast.
