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?

US Growth Downgraded – Oh, Of Course, Invest Then ... In the Money Presses.

The first paragraph of this NBR report on the US crony economy is why I currently have no money invested in world stock markets – well, this and having no money:

Equities on Wall Street and in Europe gained as investors found value, while a downgraded pace of economic growth for the US helped ease concern that the Federal Reserve is about to take its foot off the monetary stimulus pedal.

So wrong on every level. Free markets? …. Move along, none to be found here.

My investment advice is to only invest in firms making electronic snooping equipment, with government contracts. And perhaps in jails.

This post also brought to you because it’s important to break laws that restrict your freedom of speech, including New Zealand’s draconian security laws: I think this may well be in breach of same?

I’ve also nicely fixed the NBR typo …  ;)
