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?

Andrew Little’s Cowardly Abandonment of Humanity: #Euthanasia #Individualism

New Zealand's Labour Leader, Andrew Little, today forced MP Iain Lees-Galloway to take Maryan Street’s euthanasia bill back from the ballot: given Prime Minister John Key would rather talk to a blogger on the telephone than follow up on the promise he made last year for euthanasia legislation, there will now be no adult debate on euthanasia. Little's reason for his back-down is the usual inhumane, shocking logic of statists:

"There are more people affected by weak labour market regulation and weak economic strategy than they are about the right to make explicit choices about how they die."

The bill would have allowed any adult suffering from a condition likely to cause their death within 12 months to request medical assistance to die.

I initially approached this in two ways with the unthinking, uncaring Leader of Labour - again, this is Twitter, I was very angry, still am, so please forgive the typos:

Mr Little’s cowardice today is no surprise, given the evil of his politick:

And now note closely the nature of the brute who wants to run your life:

And then Little goes to the full anti-individualistic barbarity of the identity politicker, like every tyrant throughout history. Imagine if you were reading this and were dying of a terminal illness from which you desperately wanted a dignified euthanasia option so you could leave the world on your terms, in the embrace of your loved ones: because throughout this exchange, in his need to save the masses in an unrelated matter of law, Little has not thought of that individual at all. Not once. Below is why progressive collectivist societies under the tyranny of majority rule are vicious and cruel because they are built on the forced-sacrifice of individual lives, which means they ultimately extinguish all lives:

As of writing this post, to my knowledge - as no member of parliament will deign to correspond with me over the issue of euthanasia - New Zealand’s Chief Coroner is trying to change the death certification process so that even those merciful releases unofficially occurring in our hospices and hospitals cannot happen without prosecution, with a secondary consequence of more conservative pain regimes likely to leave the dying in greater suffering. Please read my post on why it is urgent we have a civilised euthanasia law, and press our gutless, cruel politicians on it.
