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?

Instigating The Uninformed To Take My Income From The Emoting Booth.

Warning: This piece contains Reactionary triggers.

As with every election year, there is started that campaign by the Left to get those to vote whom don’t normally, because they can’t be bothered; particularly youth.  No doubt this due in no small part to the Left thinking they know where this uninformed vote will go; and I’m afraid they may be right – that is, follow my money.


As usual in our age of Reality TV, the message goes right to that pseudo nouveau intelligentsia at the top, celebrity; because as we all know, singing tunes and learning lines gives one instant access to all scienpoliteconophilosophial knowledge:


Two thoughts; I apologise now before you read on:


Regarding the Daily Blog Post: no, this libertarian definitely does not want 16 year old high school children voting on how ‘I’m allowed’ to live my life, and how much of my income is to be taken for the privilege. Let them earn an income first. And while teaching civics in school sounds good, when 95% of our teachers belong to hard-line Left union the PPTA, excuse me for being terrified.

Bloody democracy: the Left would turn the voting box into an emoting box for the idealistic young who have not lived in reality sufficiently to understand they can only vote themselves a free lunch on my income, with consequences that frighten we adults who have a keen grasp on the history of the state, a state, and how it has always consumed our freedoms and our right to be left alone. I want people voting who have thought about these issues for some good deal of time, not just lunch-time before the bell rings.

Clarifications in the way of Excuses, Regarding this Reactionary and Celebrity:

I love and respect what Lorde has done for herself: her burgeoning career is an example of talent with confidence coming together into the best a human being can be. However, the conundrum is - with Keisha Castle-Hughes Green activism in mind, (remember before her and her boyfriend trashed that landlord’s house they were living in?), and the over thirty causes Justin Bieber promotes, (and no I'm too timid to go and look) - I am ‘over’ celebrity teenagers thinking they have the world so sussed, they should have any sort of a say in my life via calling policy at the Fortress of Legislation. Then again, with Lucy Lawless in mind, and Barbra Streisand, I’m over all-knowing celebrities and their busy-body ways, period – the only exclusion I can think of being Brigitte Bardot (animal welfare – um, albeit I’m selfishly leaving the orthodoxy on that one). Although that’s not quite it either: I’m just over everybody thinking they have a right to have a say in what an individual does when that individual is going about their life, minding their own business, doing no harm.  That is a right no one has, but which is unfortunately the ruling ethic of our collectivist times as we are all forced to live the Lives of Others, our freedoms sacrificed via the tax surveillance state to the manufactured needs of complete strangers.

Perhaps I’m being childish myself. On a Twitter thread some years ago Sacha Dylan once accused me of being like a spoilt child who was immaturely anti-authority: I tried to debate him rationally on it, as adults do, however, he threw a tantrum in pretty short order before doing the Lefty thing of re-writing history by wiping out the entire timeline. No, I don’t think I’m being childish, and certainly not selfish:


Rambling. Sorry.

Long live free speech, unless you’ve got your thieving paws on my wallet, or you’re a kid: in which case, bugger off ... please. My life is the one always-place your life has no right to be: we need a constitutional minarchy which protects only the rights of the smallest minority, the individual, and no vote to then emote that away, for it's time we stopped living bound lives, held down with a taxboot against our neck on someone else's bargaining table in an auction room. Though until we do, if there must be a vote, then I'll vote for a minimum voting age of 40, I think, perhaps deferred for those males still not through that little crisis we have around that age.

Now I’m off to that wonderful product of capitalism: iTunes.



  1. I'll vote for a minimum voting age of 40

    Bugger that. Property and income qualification. Unionists, bludgers & leftists at 25 are still unionists, bludgers and leftists at 35, 45, or 55. Because in a state where 10% of Kiwis pay for everything for everyone else - even unionists, bludgers and leftists aren't stupid enough to vote for policies that will leave most of 'em starving in the gutter.
