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?

The Obnoxious School of Feminism – Of Dad / Son Bonding.

On 4 June, 1913, suffragette Emily Davison died from her injuries after throwing herself under King George V’s horse at the Epsom Derby, and this after being jailed nine times and force-fed forty nine times in the cause of women’s suffrage: a deliberate tactic employed by these brave women was to deport themselves, for lack of a better term, obnoxiously. This was an excellent tactic in the staid context of the times, to break down centuries old barriers.

However, the Obnoxious School of Feminism in the twenty first century has failed to grasp an important occurrence: times have moved on. What this has meant is that being obnoxious, now, serves no good political end for the feminist movement, or for any of us; it has simply ended in hate sites such as run by the likes of Queen of Thorns (remember her), full of swearing, and railing against decency, f-this and f-that, and then unfortunately with the inevitable false and (of course) anonymous, undeserved impugning of people’s characters. Which is to say, this still active branch of obnoxious feminism has become simply that, obnoxious, and upon that, brainless and absurd. Such as the solo mum in the below story:

A father-son bonding session planned by a North Island primary school was cancelled after a single mother demanded to be included.

Two "Band of Brothers" seminars were arranged by Matakana School to help fathers get more involved in their sons' lives, and as a forum for dads to share their issues. One session was for dads and another was for fathers and sons.

A solo mum wanted to attend but was told she couldn't because her presence would inhibit discussion. She was told a mother and son seminar was planned for later in the year.

The woman's son was welcome at the second seminar and the guest speaker offered a specific session with her and her son but she continued to insist on attending, Goosen said, so the school board decided to cancel the event.

In this piece, solo mum’s reasons for destroying this father-son bonding session are never given, but, let me go out on a limb here, put a label on it, Thorny, and attribute this to the further school of Marxist feminism, by which I mean, if solo mum was to be asked, I’d take a wager that one of the following two words would be in her explanation: click the link, you’ll see I’ve covered both words constantly in this blog, the mantras of the surveillance state: equality and/or fair.

This behaviour is obnoxious, childish, and in this instance, doing a very real harm to every person involved in this story. These women need to grow up, and start being responsible for their actions.

Update 1:

The Cult of Thorny is still strong as ever in the Twitterverse. Most of its reaction to this is inane, but as to the accusation that this woman reasonably wanted inclusion, I would like an answer to the following question. (Ignore the typos, it's Twitter).

They're right: women have no obligation to men, per se, but then, turn the logic around: why are these exclusive father-son bonding courses obliged to include women?

Does solo mum feel these men are obliged to allow her in, say, the men's changing rooms?

... and then the final corollary from those who cannot sustain debate on their world-view - the block:
