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?

In Defence of Sir Bob Jones.

Don’t panic, just driving traffic to my blog, like Herald was with Bob’s piece.

Though I’ll make an observation that he’s a very literary man, Bob. Knows his motif from his mojo. No surprise his brother is a wonderful author; theirs must have been a bookish family, surely. That last link is to a post where I question if someone with a love of literary fiction could be, amongst other things, misogynist? For what it's worth.

Talking of authoring I see he's provoked my radshitzyist nemesis Thorny into working up her language skills again. While the alpha-males of the radshitzy cliques pontificate haughtily over their lattes at those of us having a laugh.

Anyway, the night’s fast is almost broken, a little stroll with The Civilian, who plays out his opinion with satire, just not of Bob's satyr-ical bent, then off to work to be fed into the tax take for me. Shite, look at this, the top 12% of households by income are paying 46% of the total tax take. Account for the tax credit transfers back to lower income households - Working for Families, Accommodation Grant, etc - and that 12% are paying a whopping 76% of the tax take. Talk about inequality.

Cup of green tea first I think.
