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?

Online Sales and Taxes: NZ Retailers Association.

Just a single point in response to the man from the Retailers Association I heard interviewed on the radio ten minutes ago: overseas e-tailers are not receiving a government subsidy via their lower incidence of tax; New Zealand retailers are simply being penalised by government for operating, via the imposition of tax.

The difference in interpretation is the free market, and thus the free, unsurveilled, prosperous society. By arguing for less tax for New Zealand retailers, you would be arguing for freedom and lower prices, a lower cost of living, for consumers; by arguing for higher taxes for your competitors, you are arguing for our continued enslavement, and higher prices, a higher cost of living, for consumers.

Ask yourselves: who do retailers serve - your customers, or bureaucracies?
