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?

Spot What Is Missing in Christchurch Rebuild – And People’s Heads.

Front page of today’s Press:

‘Landowners in proposed central Christchurch retail precincts have been warned to speed up negotiations or face compulsory acquisition …’

Roger Sutton – CERA

What’s missing? Answer: Freedom; based, as freedom is, on property rights. Not a skerrick left. I'm assuming the reference to 'landowners' is purely ironic, for what sort of 'negotiations' are possible with a state that can and will compulsorily take your property anyway. And how did it come to farcical this? Easy to see; from Twitter:

To which I can best end with my reply:

Communist, Fascist, we’re some shade of either or both, whatever, no free society to be found in New Zealand; not anymore, it just daily stuns me how far we’re moved away from it down our road to serfdom.

Update 1:

Note how @dracotbastard, who has above just recommended the complete nationalisation of all private property in New Zealand, is yet another anonymous poster, like this hypocrite and her hate site, and yet another member of the Left whom, when the bright white light of Freedom is momentarily shone into the void of their darkness, has blocked me on Twitter. There's quite a list now.
