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?

Sorry, But Irresponsible People Breeding Generational Poverty Is Annoying Me, Jacinda.

Spot what is wrong from the first two sentences of this Stuff piece:

A Christchurch couple and five of their six children are living in a relative's sleepout as they struggle to find a place to live. 

Anne Bovey and her partner AJ McIlroysay say landlords reject them because they are both on a benefit and have a poor credit rating. 

Six children on two benefits.

That story is ostensibly about the earthquakes and the housing crisis.

That story has nothing to do with earthquakes and the housing crisis.

That story is about monumental irresponsibility, and this Gulag of Welfarism in which an Arrogance of Altruists in the Fortress of Legislation forces me to pay for it. Watch the kids repeat mom and dad.

Too angry to write more. But if you have a 100% secured fortune, have a big family; personally, I think you're nuts, but fine: if not, just have a responsible sized family, and further, having children is not compulsory.

When Jacinda starts rabbiting (excuse the extended pun) on about tax evaders, show her to this thread, because why would responsible people want to encourage the callousness of this; really, what chance do these children have? This is the argument that tax mitigation and even evasion is the responsible, moral path – though of course I’m not recommending it, as we live in the Surveillance Police-State, this post will be assessed by the hive mind, and those found wanting (not to ‘give’ enough at the gun of government) will be destroyed by the bureaucrats - for the hive minders', please read my disclaimer at the bottom of this blog. It’s a world where morality has been turned upside down, and society in chasing the common good, is eating itself … yet again.

Don't worry about taxpayers trying to stop this nonsense, Jacinda, and protect their property. Don't worry about benefit abuse, as you say, in the scheme of things it's nothing; worry about benefit use - there's the problem, and your every policy will grow that use, and suck innocent, hard-working, risk-taking taxpayers dry to pay for it, while stripping them of their privacy, and right to be left alone. It's not good enough. This tax slave demands to be free of you, but, of course, that's the last thing you can allow on your election bribes, isn't it.

(And where is the reporting of the why? Why have you both had six children on not a low income, on no income? No, actually, on my income.)
