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?

Chris Brown and His Execrable Music Must Proceed.

Here’s the argument for letting Chris Brown in to perform his execrable music.

It has nothing to do with Chris Brown.

He has ‘done his time’ for his crimes. End of.

After that, I don’t want politicians and bureaucrats deciding who can, and cannot, come into New Zealand. It has to be left up to the choice of the individuals of New Zealand whether they want to see, buy tickets, or whatever interaction they desire, with people such as Brown when they are in-country.

The argument he has a criminal record doesn’t wash. Blasphemy is criminalised in Saudi Arabia, and if you are a woman, driving: so should women from Saudi Arabia with criminal records not be allowed in? (Assuming – as you can’t – they have their heads connected to their necks still.) The devout of Saudi Arabia would view blasphemy every bit as evil and repugnant as we rightly find domestic violence. 

Should the countless thousands of Kiwis with criminal records for the victimless crime of cannabis possession not be able to travel freely in the Free West? (Noting that they can’t and that is significant.)

Identity politics wants to disappear Chris Brown. But identity politicos always want to exclude and excommunicate what they see as wrong. And that is always wrong.

I have seen those saying Chris Brown is unrepentant: unless you have talked to him - so that's not a single Twitter account I've seen saying this - that must be an opinion. Excluding him on that ground is purely an emotive one. And that is always wrong.

Free countries have open borders, and not just for immigration, but for ideas and art also. Progressivism and identity feminism, in this instance, and via that, politicians, don’t get to decide who free people associate with if they do no harm (and have fulfilled their punishment for previously doing so). Prohibition is always wrong; is always harmful, and here's why: because of Chris Brown New Zealand is discussing domestic violence. His visit will afford greater light thrown on this dreadful crime.

Next thing we’ll be told a member of the Israeli Defence Force is not free to enter New Zealand and give their side of history in our universities, because campuses have been turned into that anathema of the free-mind: safe places.

Chris Brown must not have his trip banned for the same reason that Ted Dawes should never have had his book banned.

Chris Brown must be free to bring his shite show to New Zealand, because if politicians get to choose who crosses our borders to discuss their ideas, or perform their art - when such people hold no physical threat to us - then New Zealand is not a free land and we all are living in Progressivestan.


  1. I agree generally but here we have a man that talks about woman as hoes and then treats one like dirt. When you start living your dream rather than just talking about it a line gets crossed. I'd let him in because it was a while ago but think your comparison with Saudi women driving and victimless crimes is a cheap shot. We all know that having a puff or speeding is not the same as bashing the crap out of a lady.


    1. But it's not about Chris Brown, just the principle.

      And you said 'lady': per the Progressives who would ban him, you must go direct to jail ;)
