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 Moment Our Privacy Disappeared Into Dotcom’s Ego.

Edward Snowden and Glenn Greenwald – I have had big problems with Assange from the get-go - could not have picked a worse vehicle to deliver their important message about mass surveillance than last night’s circus The Moment of Truth, paid for and planned by a man both men should have had the nouse to keep a great distance from. Instead of journalistically delivering their data in a non-partisan forum called New Zealand’s free press, they both used their judgement to nonsensically get involved in the partisan hard-Left politics of our tiny country, in a political hit event designed to disrupt a democratic election with dirty politics, so making me suspect the judgement of both men over all: I'm gutted, disgusted and appalled.

And that’s all I have to say on that fiasco, because I’m on holiday trying to pull together a private project that has nothing to do with this blog. Though that said, I will never let the below hypocrisy pass unchallenged, being the contradiction over privacy of a Left whose authoritarian model of the state necessitates mass surveillance with penalties for non-compliance, and has set up the most ruthless secret police forces in history to enforce the destruction of the private lives of every individual. Of every Left MP and blogger I’ve pressed to respond to this, not one has:


To be frank, Sue, mass surveillance is despicable in any guise, albeit I’m happier being protected from terrorists, than being protected from use of my own income or property by the irrational cult of redistribution – irrational because welfare begets poverty, and law aimed at forcing the common good on a people, leads to an embittered, barbaric society, not a better one.

  1. I agree that KDC and his band of losers was a poor association for a couple of people I believe have put themselves into a difficult position because of a stand on principle.

    Bradford doesn't understand that we are in a relationship with the people who pay us wages or for services. If you want to minimise govt intrusion into every aspect of your life don't depend on them for a living. Its proper that non-productive people who live off the proceeds of the productive be closely looked at by those managing the handouts.
