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?

Hillary Clinton: Woman-Child – The West as a Kindergarten.

There are few more immoral than statist theocrats. When will these politicians wake up to the fact that, as with children when they see something they want, but which doesn’t belong to them, they can’t just reach out and take it. And they certainly can’t do so without consequences, including, or especially, when it's someone's wealth they're helping themselves to. Why is doing something that a loving parent would reprimand their children for, in order their children grow up responsible, productive adults, become okay when politicians practice it on a national scale, and preach it from the pulpits of the Fortresses of Legislation?

Look at this Woman-Child: she can’t even tell the difference anymore between voluntarism and force, between a noble philanthropy and an immoral theft. To this politician, her name is Hillary Clinton, tax is now philanthropy, just like war is peace, freedom is slavery, liberty is bounded: yet another politician using George Orwell’s nightmare world as her political manual. And hey, it’s the presidential election in the US, so might as well throw in persecuting the rich again, there’s votes in it for the Democrats:

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton offered a strongly-worded message to the rich at the Clinton Global Initiative Monday –- help grow your countries. 

The former first lady addressed an audience of leaders in … philanthropy … [she] urged struggling countries to tax equitably and to lean on the wealthy.

"One of the issues I have been preaching about around the world is collecting taxes in an equitable manner, especially from the elites in every country,"

If you advocate a contradiction, then you better re-examine your premises. And in relation to your first paragraph, Hillary, you don’t grow a country by stealing the wealth from those who actually know how to use it to better the living standards of all of us, via the voluntary transaction, and putting it in the hands of bureaucrats. History has taught us that. (Whisper: ‘And let’s just ignore the quaint notion that wealth is owned by those who earn it. Remember what your ‘land of the free’ was built on? It wasn’t this speech of yours; it was property rights and freedom from people like you back in the homeland).

I despair. As I've said before, no wonder modern youth slouches down the street aimlessly, violently, and drunk, its bum hanging out of its pants: look at how its being brought up.
