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?

Letter to Editor (Press): Amazon - Again - Columnist Mike O'Donnell.

Mike O’Donnell (9/12) welcomes the Revenue Minister cracking down on multinationals such as Amazon so they pay more tax. Tax is a dead cost to business. If we force more tax on these firms they have to increase the prices they charge for goods and services. O’Donnell is thus advocating for an increased cost of living for Kiwis. That is not a good thing. Why not reverse his thinking? So local retailers can compete, we need to get rid of GST. Then why not slash the size of a state that over 70 years of welfare has grown poverty and dependence, then we could reduce income tax to a level where these multinationals want to bring their profits to New Zealand. Use tax competition to become a wealthy nation.

Chances of this happening? None. Prepare to pay more for life in this theocracy of state, New Zealand.
