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?

If Good Enough For Film Industry, Why Not The Economy?

Why is the film industry so special compared to the rest of the economy? Constantly this clamour it must be given a special (lower) incidence of tax so it can survive and grow. Which I agree with: but it applies for every other industry also. There's nothing special about the arts. A builder finishing a house, a farmer casting their eye down a straight and true new fence-line, get every bit as much creative satisfaction as a film producer does.

Or is the arts community signifying somehow aesthetics and culture puts them above all us grunts? Isn't that an elitism that contradicts this sector's otherwise overwhelming call for the fist of state to destroy individual wealth so we are all equal in income poverty?

What grows the film industry would grow the prosperity of all of us: a lower incidence of tax, signifying less government. 


  1. Of course if we cut taxes we'd have to cut welfare! Taxes fund benefits, super, schools & health (about 1/4 each)!

    1. We need a Western Spring to get rid of tax, period.
