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?

Odd Future ... No, A Police State Future, Here We Go Again.

Some of the most dreadful dreck to fill the minds of generation airhead is that noise called rap. In my opinion it has no saving graces and I would love some day to learn its angry, hate-filled, misogynist words and imagery have been consigned to history. But those words and images are created from these tax surveillance welfare states we've had forced on us in the West, so should the words of these young cretins be banned?

No, of course not, but of course they have.

Ask yourself about the nature of the society you live in where a bureaucracy can ban freedom of expression like this. Or a particular political/cultural elite can do so because we have become so philosophically bereft in the West, such as Giovanni Tiso's campaign against radio announcers Willie and JT (from paragraph beginning 'coincidentally, half way down blog post).

Now for those of you left with a dreadful taste in your mouth, something beautiful to clean the palate:

And why not click over to read classical liberal Jamie Whyte's great piece against plain packaging in New Zealand, in which more words and images are to be banned by the false messiahs and wowsers in our Fortress of Legislation.
