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?

West’s Tipping Point: Feminist Theocracy Institutes Feminist Sharia - #ProteinWorld #PEN

It doesn't matter what excuse you use to destroy freedom of expression; Allah, Jesus, body shaming, body confidence, et al - the only point of importance is the consequence: freedom of expression is destroyed.

I am sitting behind my keyboard this morning, mouth open, stunned. And, fair to say, distraught – I don’t write that last lightly. My plight started with reading of further authors protesting PEN’s intention to give French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo an American freedom of expression award; that number now reaching two dozen – confirming everything I have written in this piece on how a Progressive literature is the death of a literature that can resist tyranny anymore, and so part only of the western capitulation into another iteration of statist tyrannies.

Then the truly unbelievable: this advertisement is today banned in England by their Advertising Standards Authority (ASA):

Worse is the ASA’s reasoning:

"Although the ad won't appear in the meantime, [banned], we've launched an investigation to establish if it breaks harm and offence rules or is socially irresponsible," the spokesperson added.

"We will now carefully and objectively – [objectively? What the fuck?] - explore the complaints that have prompted concerns around body confidence and promptly publish our findings."

The ad, which stars bikini-clad Australian model Renee Sommerfield, asks whether commuters are "beach body ready" in a promotion for weight loss aids.

It’s as simple as this: a private company has had an advert for their weight loss aids banned because it used the image of a bikini clad women. Restating the above:

“… we’ve launched an investigation to establish if [the picture of a bikini clad woman] breaks harm and offence rules or is socially irresponsible.’

No, this is not from some dreadful Middle Eastern theocracy, but add to this that the firm running the ad, Protein World, is now receiving death threats, and the comparison contained in my title to this piece becomes obvious. It doesn't matter what excuse you use to destroy freedom of expression; Allah, Jesus, body shaming, body confidence, et al - the only point of importance is the consequence: freedom of expression is destroyed. To every mindless moron of Generation Airhead Feminism who joined this campaign, are you even able to make the barest glimmering of how evil that sentence is? And how contradictory?’

Every gain made by older generation feminists, such as [the fuming] Mrs H, since Emily Davison threw herself under a horse, and the bras were burnt – especially this latter - is lost in that single sentence. Utterly lost. Renee Sommerfield, the model in this advert points to it: quite apart from the Sharia closing down of free expression, this is body shaming:

"I think nearly every ad campaign you have ever seen is open to interpretation. But saying the ad is body shaming by body shaming the image is very contradictory," she tells HuffPost UK Lifestyle exclusively. "Two wrongs don't make a right."

Just as Generation Airhead Feminism body shamed Rosetti Scientist Matt Taylor, and demonised his eccentric individualism.

But it’s the wilful destruction of free expression and free speech, born of wilful ignorance, that really hurts. And that it’s the prevailing ethic: I’ve already written last month on New Zealand Marxist Giovanni Tiso’s further campaign against free speech by trying to have TV host Mike Hosking fired for comments he made on #ponytailgate. All roads lead to the Sharia advertisement ban of this morning. If there’s something these draconian bastards don’t agree with, the first instinct of their umbrage taking is to shut it down. And use the fist of state to do so. We have feminist theocracy, and this morning they have instituted feminist sharia on us all. A free life cannot be had without a love for difference: but difference, and individualism, is to be shut down in all its expressions of life and living.

Where does it end? Because all bets are off.

Generation Airhead Marxist feminism has turned itself into the nightmare Orwell wrote of in his novel 1984, ‘the boot stamping on a human face, forever.’

It’s over – the free society: it’s over. Tyranny wins again, as we are herded into the prison of each other’s minds, freedom setting against a pale, grey Western sky, before the blood red sunrise of the new state gulags that are coming.

Honestly, I feel like crying. How the hell did this happen?


  1. It happened because we are stuffed up - all of us have emotions and baggage that override sensible behaviour when buttons are pushed. Its the human condition and the sensible among us, assuming that somethings are still seen as sensible, stopped fighting against it as the foolishness encroached on the top levels of power. Not everyone has your intellect or rationality and your mistake is thinking that you can reason with everyone to achieve a result that both sides will accept or the control freaks will see the error of their ways. Sometimes the other side just needs a punch on the nose.

    I hate this bollocks as much as you but am not at all surprised that its come about. Its not new at all - history is littered with idiots that dictated opinion of the masses. You'll enjoy this shambles longer than me because I'm the kind of particularly offensive person they will come for first.


    1. Jeez, we're in 100% agreement :)

      And your observations are wise and true.

    2. Oh, and I'll stick up for you as they drag you away ;)

  2. I suspect we agree on far more than you realise. I have a book "Triumph of the Airheads". Interesting but so depressing.

    History is full of people watching others get dealt to but doing nothing because they were not of the same race, culture, religion or whatever. The human condition is hardly flash. Courage takes all sorts of form but we celebrate those who had it on the occasion they needed it because its rare and often manifest in those we thought least likely to have it. The next few years will be interesting.


    1. You wrote a book called Triumph of the Airheads or you have a book?

  3. There are two massive evils in the world today - socialism (one of whom's manifestations is "political correctness") and Islam.

    Each is an ally of the other and both must be destroyed.

    I believe that the *core* of socialism's power is that they control the schools, universities and media. In order to destroy their stranglehold it is necessary to use the "eat-an-elephant-a-bite-at-a-time" approach. By this, I mean "start with the schools".

    We can see how *desperate* the left is to destroy charter schools. This outrage betrays their knowledge that such schools are a *danger* to them, eroding their power base.
    Blog-sites do this too - witness the fury and blind hatred that the left have for the WhaleOil site.

    We need *hundreds* of charter schools. When they have been set up, they will give children an *education* instead of the indoctrination that state schools give. That will then flow on to the universities and eventually the media.

    We *do know* that the public as a whole are switching *off* and turning away from the left-wing-infested MSM - the "news" and the papers. That trend is good for us.

    Put it this way - we are the "right wing bacteria" that are resistant to the "left-wing antibiotics". What doesn't kill us makes us stronger.
    *Remember THIS* - that it only takes a tiny colony of ultra-resistant bugs to lay waste to a body - in this case, the body being the *left wing*.

    ( Ok, not a perfect analogy given that it is the LEFT who are the *bugs* of the world, but anyway... )

    1. I don't mind that part of Islam which is not theocratic: that is, happy to keep to itself. My views on multi-culturalism are here:

      I broadly agree with you on socialism though, because that can't leave those of us who want free lives alone: which is the problem.

    2. And yes, via Gramsci, with 95% teachers signed up to the PPTA, the socialist rot starts there, and is thus so hard to overturn.

  4. I'm no writer but an avid reader so it means I bought a book called "The Triumph of the Airheads and the Retreat from Commonsense". The author is Shelley Gare.

    Having just finished "The Death of Money" by James Rickards I'm convinced that socialism is doomed but the death throes will be very ugly. Hong Kong still has real bookshops and was both interesting and encouraging to see what was on the shelves.


    1. Thanks re your first paragraph. Agree with all your points in the second.
