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?

The Problem of Votes Based Government, Rather than Rights Based Governance – Organ Donation & Euthanasia – Lecretia Seales on Sunday.

The problem with a votes based system, rather than a rights based one, is opportunist MP’s - and that’s all of them - get to cherry pick our rights for us, based on what they see as their best chance of being re-elected:

Same principle Mr Dunne: yes, an organ donor’s right to volunteer organs must be made sacrosanct despite the wishes of their family – why isn’t that obvious now? But on the same principle, so must my right for euthanasia be sacrosanct, despite what the busy bodies and Stone Age Faithers believe. Their opinion in the manner of my death is as irrelevant as my family’s beliefs in relation to organ donation.

Mr Dunne’s tweet was on the back of a TV piece last week about organ donation. Well this Sunday night there was a piece on Lecretia Seale’s High Court case for her right to die with dignity: I’ll take any opportunist chance I get. Watch it, Peter, then lets legislate the individual right of euthanasia; there might even be votes in it for you, but even better, grace, for finally a compassionate Act - might even help balance the ledger from your earlier attempt to cruelly test animals for what equated to human recreation. Indeed I entreat every politician to listen to Lecretia and husband, Matt, and then tell me why you have any right to deny her, or anyone in similar circumstances, the choice of dying with dignity. Because what business is her life and death, of yours? And what business do you have overriding her wishes?

I was going to end this post by saying if nothing else, can’t you gutless politicians even start talking about euthanasia within the walls of the Fortress of Legislation? Let’s pretend you’re grown-ups like the rest of us, because NZ has been discussing this for a very long time now, and we demand euthanasia law. But what’s the point - Mr Dunne’s first tweet after Sunday aired? To retweet a traffic warning:

Dunne either doesn't personally hold with euthanasia, flying in the face of his thoughts on organ donation, or he simply doesn't care enough and has decided there's no votes in it. Our system is broken. There needs to be a revolution demanding rights based governance, and get these current arseholes out of our lives. But it's Monday, there's not a single MSM outlet running a Seale story from last night, nor a MP opining on it. This morning the idiot-buzz is about a two year property sales tax bright-line test - whippity doo ... albeit if you can get your head out of that petty partisan political party bullshit to something that is important, why not read Lecretia's wonderful post published to go out with her Sunday piece last night, then follow her action link at the end; sign the petition and write to our politicians who are to a last one all cowardly missing in action on this issue.

To Lecretia Seale, who I've stated before can have nothing to do with this particular hothead, best of luck, as unfortunately you're going to need luck, that's how bad our legislature has become (and - no disrespect - our judiciary). You deserve to win your case and have the choice to die with dignity. We all do.
