MPs Mentally ill. Hold the Front page!

They are suffering from low self worth apparently and are prone to mental illness and drink too much because they are addicted to social media and have to suffer the privation of having two houses and having to commute which gives them a sense of semi permanent displacement. They are subject to abuse by trolls cos in seeking approbation they end up being criticised. Provide your own violins please.

Well yes please moderate your sympathy for these benighted souls who only want to do good but are often misunderstood although according to the report we must not be too hard on the critical public because they are only human. Returning back to reality for a moment small wonder MPs are mentally ill and have low self esteem when they spend their lives trying to be loved by giving other people's money away and regulating every single waking and sleeping hour of their imprisoned servile hapless electorate who are nannied to within an inch of their lives by these do gooding parasites and social metsphysicians who practice the cheapest of all charities, namely the vicarious sort, charity by proxy, the gift that keeps on taking. State altruism is their raison d etre and that will always lead to self loathing before bedtime as it is a fraud perpetrated on British tax slaves who loathe their taskmasters and know them to be frauds,conmen, corrupt,semi criminal plunderers who perpetrate financial rape and pillage on an industrial scale and euphemise it with bromides about public good and fairness. That's why they are universally despised and hated and are now we are told, slowly going mad as well.

Globalization Package deal

Another favourite hypnosis-inducing word of the Left is Globalisation and it is of course coded language for the dreaded never to be spoken word Capitalism. It carries with it lots of undeclared items in the baggage department of the Left, a trigger word that sends down the Red mist and gets the leftist slavering with Pavlovian rage.

To merely unpackage it is to disarm it and we need to do that with all such smuggled ideological leftist contraband. (I should of course stress that is only a metaphor  as I do not believe in customs control other than for terrorist suspects and those with communicable diseases!)

Beyond Nostradamus?

No one, not even perhaps Ayn Rand predicted the resurrection of the Far Left in the beginning of the 21st century. Her acolyte Peikoff did forecast the emergence of Fascism in the US and that is shaping up accurately with the rise of Trump and the Alt right. So where do we go now and what can we do about it, taken so off guard as we admittedly have been, off footed with not a little chagrin into the bargain?

 Objectivists are running around like headless chickens, turning to in-fighting and frankly exasperation at some of their fellows who bizarelly and for God only knows what conceivable reason other than uncontrolled rage or mass hysteria have mind blowingly conflated Trumpism with Objectivism. Even more worrying is they appear to be beyond reasoning with and when their contradictions are pointed out they double down on them and create a word fog of obsfuscation to justify their hair brained ratiocinations. No reverse gear clearly.

Right now I have no clue where we go from here which hardly makes for a satisfactory blog post I know and apologies for that but there we are. Our thinking hopefully starts right here.

Syria, the West's part in it's Downfall

The Middle East Vietnam in Syria is nearing its inexorable endgame and its another own goal for the West and its liberal  authors, yet another abortion of foreign meddling with the predictable results of carnage and devastation caused wholly by an abject and pathetic posturing caricature of re heated cold war politics.. Still it made us feel good and vindicated even if we caused the wholesale slaughter and devastation and massive almost unprecendented displacement of peoples, a diaspora of horrendous proportions, incalculable misery and suffering, it was all worth it cos it made us feel good. We stirred up sectional factionalism in an alread bifurcated Middle East hell hole, funding scores of renegade extremist terrorist groupings including Al Queda but its all good apparently. We can even get a frisson from war porn,lamenting the very horror that we architected and orchestrated. We are all Neo cons now apparently. Count me out of course but weep at what the West in its immorality and decadence has wrought.

Mother Teresa

When we find ourselves in times of trouble Mother Teresa comes to us whispering words of wisdom for God sake woman Let it Be. We do not find it assuring that the PM hears voices, believes in God and lets it guide her actions. But it does make sense re her silly tedious wooly liberal socialist views that she insists on wearing on her sleeve, just above her leather trousers. This is the bad side of America and we do not need it. Leaver you crackerbarrel religiosity for your closet where it belongs as Becket once said, with Bog and all his glory.

Far from being a passport to power religious faith should be an bar to it if it is to be carried into policy making. I feel a general election coming up and the sooner the better ye gods.

Quote of the week - if not the Year

BBC reporter: (almost verbatim) Millions of normal people idolized Castro and the  dissidents opposed him. Fake News anyone? Note the use of the word normal here. Communism is the new/ Old normal in BBC la la land.

And it was fun to see the ex ch4 Marxist economist Paul Mason almost wetting himself praising Fidel whilst mightily struggling at the same time not to appear too unrestrainedly  enthused about the crazed mass genocidal maniac and the resultant conflict was apparent in his contorting body language,like a snake on a live rail. The only conclusion to be drawn re the Left and Fidel is: He may be a despot, but he's our despot - and the trains ran on time, or everyone can read and has good health care.We have the healthiest literate slaves in all of Latin Amerika, Hail Fidel!  And Pinochet was a monster who tortured people to bring about Capitalism but Fidel did it to bring about Socialismo and the good of The People. Hope you are following all of this gentle readers? Here endeth the lesson for today on the insanity of Lefty thinking. More next time!

The Havana Loon is dead

Makes you almost wish there was a hell as it would be the only fitting destination for this evil communist bastard. The BBC is staging an orgy of a sobfest for this monster but for some reason they cannot find one single solitary  Havanan on the streets who is critical of him! Will Grant a BBC journalist is referring reverentially to him in hushed tones as 'Fidel' and it is clear the BBC is mortified and stricken with grief at the loss of one of its communist heroes. The only voice of reason in a sea of media wailing and gnashing of teeth is from Trump who has released excoriating invective against the Marxist scumbag so for once Trump has got the right tone. The great recent Nobel prize winner  summed it up best 'I hate Fidel Castro and his beard'. The left's search for yet another totalitarian despot to idolize starts here.

Here We Quango Again

With not a trace of irony the Daily Mail informs us today that the Institute for Fiscal Studies (yet another Q word) 'has long prided itself on its its independence' before going on to inform us that it is funded to the tunes of millions of pounds from Brussels! It gets millions from the European Research Council, and other European agencies such as the European Comission,gets in  addition funding from the  UK State and is stuffed to the gunnels with Leftist Remoaners. It is clear that the Mail and indeed the Establishment is using a whole other  dictionary when it bandies the word Independence around. Words mean what we want them to mean....

The IFS has bought into the whole MSM leftist trope of we have never had it so bad propaganda, claiming we are back to 1920's and 30's type poverty which demonstrates the extent to which it and the left in general have taken leave of their senses and are promoting a propagandist alarmism and  pedalling unadulterated agitprop and passing it off as sober objective fact.

Do the Quango Tango

Here we go again. A Quango has spoken. Its called the OBR,  acronym for  Office for Budget Responsibility. It is, you guessed it, 'independent' of government which roughly translated means 'not independent of government'. In  further Orwellian speak it is held at 'arms length' from government, the pseudo separation of a body from the State that I have referred to in another post which is  a cynical attempt to present a organization as independent from government, in other words to perpetrate a deception on the public which in non fancy language means to commit fraud. So the fraudulent OBR, flying under false colours has made pronouncements hostile to Brexit, distorted and gloom laden prognostications seemingly oblivious to the fact that it made similar grossly erroneous claims and predictions just a few months ago. Its policy appears to be if you screw up, don't apologise just double down on the canard.

Thus we see the Establishment will erect whole Byzantine layers of State each closely interconnected  and separated only by a wall of semantics and bureaucratic obsfuscation and prestidigiation. Lets see how many we can identify going forward and hopefully burst the bubble of their ill gotten credibility and expose the fraud going on at the black heart of the Deep State.

Privatisation and other Myths

The biggest deception politicians have engaged in over many decades is the pretense that they have   presided over a a massive reduction of the  State, privatising all over the place, when the terrible truth is all in the opposite direction, namely a vast growth of the State into areas past generations would have thought inconceivable and politically impossible, and indeed undreamt of by the most fanatical of statist collectivist leftists. But so it has come to pass and I want to explore briefly how this amazing feat of State expansion has been accomplished and by what methods and I will suggest it has been done by stealth and downright lies and disimulation on a grand  and industrial scale.

As I have suggested in recent posts it is all in the language. If you want to achieve what would normally be unpalatable or subject to challenge and resistance you have to use a narrative that is emollient in style, sprinkled liberally with anodyne words,euphemisms,linguistic approximations, bromides,trigger words,throw in a few dog whistles and the use of repetitive phrases designed soley to hypnotise the listener through the process of constant repetition where words become detatched from meaning and float off sonorously into opaque abstraction separating the hearer from all meaning and thus achieving the desired goal  namely to gull, lull, deceive and mislead.

The goal in question, an exponential expansion of the State into every nook and cranny of people's lives has been pretty much accomplished and it has been done by the above mentioned means and I want to focus on the objective of a large superstate by means of what I call Socialism and Nationalisation by the Back door. Particularly in the so-called private sector -a socialist phrase in itself. Most business people presume that they run their own business but do they, really? Who decides the proces and criterias whereby someone is hired or fired,  what rates of pay they will receive as well as the scourge of the Minimum wage and now so called Living wage? To say nothing of the fact that employers are now defacto tax collectors for the State having to deduct punitive levels of national insurance and then the mountains of regulations that requires the employment of accountants and lawyers if the company is big enough. To be cont.

Budget Autopsy Turvy

John Mcdonnel makes the stereotypical second hand car salesman appear a paragon of economic probity and to hear him give prescriptions for the country's future economic  health is akin to listening to Ghenghis Kahn giving a speech on the need for  pacifism.

But to the budget. Someone has to go down to the sewer and report back. I referred yesterday to the deployment of certain words that politicians have recourse to which act like a dog whistle and bipass the conscious mind which of course is their express intention. Today's such code word in Hammond's long drawn out drone was Infrastructure. Over and over again he interlarded his tedious spiel with the word. Like Public Good it has but one purpose: to extract yet more money in taxes from the subject British slave peoples  who toil all day long so he can filch their lifeblood and spend it all on grand projects,white elephants which he euphemistically calls Infrastructure.

'Infrastructure' spending, like 'Public Service' is a phrase designed to get in under the radar allowing the chancer or chancre of the exchequer to go on an orgy of borrowing and spending and this  Hammond did yesterday sprinking around like confetti billions of pounds  and no one batted an eyelid.  So for Conservatives its a clear case of we are all socialists now. Why not just close down the house of commons as we have effectively a one party State with the various political parties taking it in turn to inhabit 10 Downing street and screw us royally with their identical socialist depradations. As the houses of Parliament apparently needs massive renovations running into the tens of billions they should perhaps spare us the expense and just do their work from a more appropriate venue such as the local slagheap.

All Roads lead to Popery

The Pope dope has given his priests the right to forgive women who have had abortions. Remember, every abortion means one less kiddy the priests can fiddle with so they need a steady uninterrupted supply of new victims. Still it is touching that priests will be spending their time unctuously forgiving women for choosing their own lives over their foetuses yet you would think the votaries of the higher cant  would be much more productively employed seeking forgiveness for all the paedophile horror they have inflicted on their countless victims over numberless generations

On the premise that it takes a loon to know a loon, let us leave the last word on Rome to that embodiment of sweetness and light Ian Paisley who managed to be right about one single thing his whole life and here it is: " We know the Roman Catholic Church to be an abomination and the mother of all harlots."

Public Service Broadcasting

It seems it only takes the word Public placed in front of something to give it automatic validation and acceptance. Words are indeed hypnotic and politicians in particular count on this when making policy. Certain words and phrases are guaranteed to elicit sympathy albeit on a subliminal level which again is what politicians rely on in order to push through legislation in their change agency capacity and this human failing to only be semi conscious  is an invaluable prerequisiste in facilitating their daily incursion ever deeper into what is left of the private sphere of their hapless and disarmed subjects.

The phrase 'public service broadcasting' is a case in point and indeed the general invocation by politicians of the 'public good'whenever they want to raid the so called public purse for some public work or other. In the realm of State funded broadcasting the outcome has only ever been the same ie political tendentiousness,bias,and  in one single direction -leftwards,the service used to promote overtly in some cases but usually covertly, a statist pro big government orientation and nothing could better illustrate this than the daily output of BBC news and political commentary which is relentlessly and unfailingly left in all its applications.

When one thinks about it, it could not really be otherwise, this leftist  composition of public service broadcasting journalism.A State run TV and radio station cannot but reflect a statist ethos in its  output and it would be counter intuitive to expect such a national nay international behemoth - which the BBC undoubtedly is - to be pumping out free market pro capitalist oriented journalism! Why would it bite the hand that feeds it?

We then get into the totally fallacious on its face and outright brazen untrue assertion by the BBC defenders that the organisation is independent of government! In a very big pigs eye. But then like the character in Alice in Wonderland the left who are the BBC s most fanatical defenders  -bar some masochistic lefty Tories - adopt the position that 'words mean what I want them to mean'. Independent State broadcaster. Get your mind round that one folks.

So let us examine a little closer what the word independence means in this context. We hear the word bandied about a lot by politicians when they want to expand the State but want that expansion to go on under the radar. They know that even the comatose masses will only put up with so much State so what do they do. They create these hybrid constructs that are of the state but positioned at one remove by the stratagem of employing  some artificially contrived bureaucratic space between the State and the institution in question. This can be seen with the phenomenon of the Quangoes. Quasi autonomous. Sound familiar? This is an oxymoron of course. Quasi pregnant anyone? Quasi independent? But in the case of the BBC this subterfuge is not even deployed and instead the apologists for it assert brazenly that it is independent with not a shred of evidence to support their patently bogus claim.The simple solution to a quandary if such it be over the validity of the independent claim is to simply follow the money. Who is the paymaster? The State. And why should the BBC be in conflict with this anyway when it is on the same side of the State in pushing the statist agenda. There is no tension between the State and the BBC employees because they are working in ideological tandem.

But this potentially compromising and morally untenable situation must not be openly acknowledged or the game would be up so periodically the BBC indulges in some faux conflict between it and its State paymasters, in order to assert its 'independence' and people say oh brave BBC standing up to the bully State! This cynical charade is repeated periodically and it manages to fool most of the people most of the time.

When challenged about its obvious leftist bias the BBC has recourse to a tried and tested resort. It denies it.This can be explained in only two ways. Either it is lying and knows it,or it truly thinks it is being objective. Either one of those positions does injury to the trade of journalism for the following reasons. If it is the first ie lying it means that journalists are  violating their core principles of journalism, namely, to be truth tellers.If it is the second ie they are not aware that they are biased and tendentious it means they are in the wrong trade because being a journalist means having allegiance to objectivity or at least striving towards it. Not a good look either way.

And briefly ch 4 which is also public service broadcaster - with adverts just to gull the masses is guilty of all the same sins abovementioned and for the exact same reasons. I rest my case, for public service broadcasting read Statist biased, tendentious and partial. I argue for its complete abolition not because of any of the reasons here given but because it is immoral and fundamentally illiberal to force people to pay for a service they have not voluntarily chosen to purchase and it is adding insult to injury to describe this act of naked State coercion under the grotesque Orwellianism of 'public service broadcasting'. If they wish to subscribe to a left leaning tv or radio broadcaster by all means they should be free to do so but the State has no business whatsoever getting involved in the medium any more than it should be running a State newspaper and for exactly the same reasons.

Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid

Interesting times have become very interesting times. We have the very real prospect of a defacto Fascist Le Pen government just across the channel not to mention the idiots across the Atlantic who have given the keys to the Whitehouse to a left wing Fascist in all but name and a weak already left wing government here in the UK with a wafer thin majority who face the prospect of being hustled in to a general election early next year by a a motely crew of judicial activists resulting in the very real prospect of a full blown Socialist in 10 Downing St from the outer reaches of Corbania. No? Let us explore.

If people can vote for a US Republican with far left Statist views why is it a stretch to imagine that they will not vote here for a very left wing Corbyn with almost identical protectionist interventionist views? And who is responsible for this very real nitemare scenario prospect? Why, the Conservatives on both sides of the Atlantic who have failed so abjectly to put forward the genuine and only alternative to statism and collectivism,namely capitlism. And why did they not? Because to do so would be 'ideological' and not 'pragmatic'. Well Conservatives look at what your steadfast adherence to anti ideology and pragmatism has brought us to -and hang your heads in shame.

Trump Objectivists (?) in Denial

Yaron Brook is coming in for a fair bit of abuse from certain people who one assumes are Objectivists over his position on Trump who he asserts with all the evidence on his side it must be said, is a leftist on many issues not least economic.He has been shouted down at quite a few speaking venues on both sides of the Atlantic recently. But if he cannot be trusted on this issue how about those on the left who appear to see things the same way. Far Leftist George Galloway no less said on his RT programme Sputnik at the weekend that on economic issues Trump 'position is socialist. Our local newspaper carries a column by an avowed far leftist and he asserts that there is not a cigarette paper's difference between Trump and Sanders on economic policy except that according to him Trump does not mean it, it is just rhetoric whereas had Sanders stood against Trump he would have won because unlike Donald he would actually put such protectionist policies into action. From the horses's mouth Trump is a Leftist statist. Still the objectivists in question appear to have checked out their objectivity some time ago and are impervious to reason and have gone over to the dark side where emotions rule and the realm of feelings reigns supreme.

Lily Livered Republicans

Buckingham Palace wants a right Royal renovation and demands taxpayer's money to pay for it and what do the so-called Republicans have to say about it? Wait for it: The palace should open up more times in the year so the public can view its splendors and pay royally for it into the bargain! That's it. Not a word about the fundamental amorality of this fosillised corrupt moribund crime syndicate family parasiting off the blood and toil of the hapless captive tax payers who apparently are quite content to carry on tugging the forelock to their royal masters in perpetuity -80% of them we are told although like most opinion polls it is probably a self serving lie.

Who are these in-name-only Republicans? A bunch of lefties whose contact with reality is every bit as tenuous as the royals  they are supposedly against. They resent the royals soley because of the arbitrary power they wield and like jealous Gods want to appropriate said power to themselves which is the modus operandi of all such collectivist statists.Their contempt for individual rights is only equaled by the monarchy itself who like nothing more than extracting huge royalties from their servile taxpayers who must cough up on pain of imprisonment. There is absolutely no principle at stake here for the faux republicans.They just want arbitrary power and see the Balamoral royals as rivals to achieving it.

A principled ethical stand against monarchy 9which thinks it can get under the moral radar if it puts the word  Constitutional in front of it) has yet to be mounted and it certainly will not be coming from the Republican Socialists whose desire for a Kleptocratic system is itself Monarchical in all but name.

Supreme Folly?

No one knows less about the UK Supreme Court than me I would imagine and to be honest until a few months ago I was not aware of its existence which, I own, could well be an indication of my constitutional ignorance but I am rather glad it has emerged into the light of day and hope that some attention will now be paid towards it and its composition in the light of the momentous verdict that is before it regarding Brexit and the government's appeal to have the recent case against it by opportunist activist litigants reversed.

The role of journalism is to shine a light in dark places and I hope we will come to learn more about the Supreme Court in the coming weeks and at present I can only go by a hunch that it is stuffed to the gunnels with Europhile lawyers of the Blair/Cherie kidney and we are all screwed if they get to have the final say on Brexit. Not to beat about the bush I think there should be some sort of commission or public inquiry into whether the Supreme Court is indeed fit for purpose or whether as I suspect it has been captured by special interest activist judges with a very bad case of Brusselphilia. A serious constitutional review is in order whose remit should be to inquire as to whether the Judiciary has by a process of attrition and stealth over recent years subordinated or at least attenuated the proper role of the Executive. I fear it has.

Milo Yapper V Kathy Young

I continue to be very unimpressed with Milo Yannapolis and his perforamance on CH 4 last evening  has only reinforced that impression. As a journalist is it not shocking that he can come out with the following 'we live in a post truth age'? Once that is said the pass has already been sold and no one could possibly have any reason whatsoever to take the boy seriously -which apparently is the idea anyway. But as a poster boy for Trump he is perfect: vacuous,facile empty headed puerile, unserious, irrational,contradictory and absurd.

This is what a real War on Drugs looks like

The Phillipines is run by a mad serial killer with genocide on his mind and hands. 3 thousand (or is it 4?) of drug related executions have been carried out by the State this year alone with the kind of homicidal rigour  that the arch crank and anti drug fanatic Peter Hitchens would no doubt be envious of. He has railed for years at the pusillaminous approach of the British State to the drug 'problem' and has mocked what he terms the so -called War on Drugs as being nothing of the sort but rather a soft liberal attitude of appeasement to the 'menace' of the drug culture. Makes you wonder what planet he is actually living on when you consider the tens of thousands of inmates clogging up our jails serving time for drug offences.I wonder what part of drug prohibition has been an unmitigated failure and disaster he does not get.

Even the Liberals who are right in calling for total drug legalisation are doing it for the wrong reasons and motivations which it must be said is their modus operandi across most issues.. Decriminalisation is not to be supported so the State can muscle in on the act and tax and regulate the drugs,nor in the name of any therapeutic benefit that may be derived from certain illegal drugs. It is because Prohibition is immoral and should be repealed for the plain reason that what people choose to ingest and inject or smoke is no one's business but theirs and the State does not own the individual's body and soul and has no business policing either one. The law's sole purpose is to protect people from the harm Others would do to them, not the harm they may do to themselves.
 

Abolish House Of Lards?

Beginning to wonder. Should they not at least be elected? If they see their role as to frustrate the will of the people over Brexit it really is time to close up shop. Not to be trusted with used toilet paper let alone the future of this country. Another layer of parasitic government accountable to none stuffed to the gunnels by cancerous toxic liberals who will keep us in the Brussels dungeon using whatever underhand tactics they can dredge up from their faeces packed brains. And to be sure they will dress it up in parliamentary language to gull the untutored in their political dark arts of chicanery and dissimulation. All in all I am struggling to see what the point of these moral ciphers is and think it is well and truly the Last Chance Saloon for them except that I do not think they can be given even that as like the cockroach in the mythical story they will sting and we will be stuck in the Brussels matrix. So Off with their metaphorical heads!

Welcome to the Hotel EUania

You can check out any time you like, but EU can never Leave. The UK burEUrocRats, the Yes Ministers will see to it. And we need 30,000 more according to Deloite doolittle or whoever,dutifully reported by the now Brussels in-house journal The Times,echoed by the Pinko Financial  Times and the ditto BBC who seem to have gone into servile Brussels worship overdrive of late -must be all that pent up tension having to maintain a facade of objectivity during the referendum. Anyways extricating ourselves from the Brussels matrix may prove harder than Joseph K escaping from his invisible masters in the Czech Castle. Someone may well need to invoke that tried and tested redoubtable tool: the Gordian Knot Solution. When it comes to Brussels, EUvolution will  just not do it. We may need to Rev up.

Imprisoning Ideology

UK jails are in crisis apparently but because the unions are saying it we should take it with a truck load of salt.Remember the doctor's unions who wanted to close down the hospitals and the London Underground unions who want to close down Christmas so we know something smells about this latest alarmist talk from the prison unions who seem very corrupt and often in collusion with the inmates so that it is hard to differentiate between the two oftentimes. Their solutions of course are interlarded with the usual self serving rationale and bleatings about cuts in staff and low pay and low morale ad nauseam, the stock in trade of parasitic unions running their criminal monopolistic rackets and note that in these 3 areas we are talking Public Sector, the most corrupt parasitic areas of the workplace.

The solution to the Underground, prisons and hospitals crisis is to privatise them all and in the case of the prisons the main solution would be to end Prohibition since a majority of inmates seem to be there because of drugs offences which in a sane free country would not exist as all drugs would be legalised. There are of course too many vested interests to allow this to happen but it is something worth campaigning for nonetheless.

Who Created the Frankenstinian Monsters of Sanders Trump and their Statist equivalents abroad?

Traison de Clerics, or in plain English: the Betrayal of the Intellectuals, that's what has got us into this catastrophe of the Faux Insurgency Movement as I have called it with its pseudo alternative of an Alt right crypto Fascist Demagogue  or a neo Communist Sanders Demagogue, or a Hillary surrogate and  even  so-called Objectivists appear to be falling for it as I alluded to in my last post. Someone even said 'we must not be doctrinaire' which I have translated as 'let us get away with contradictions', or, do not confine us within the stifling constricts of reason -we want to be emotional and let our political hair down. We hate the Left far more than we love reason -even if it means becoming the Left and defending the protectionist Trump who hates capitalism as much as Bernie Sanders does. Small wonder that lots of Sanders voters have flipped over to Donald - not so much a long tortuous ideological journey as a casual stroll across the political street.

We are in the Henry Ford era of politics it would seem: you can have any colour of politics you like as long as it's statist. Lean to the Right? Donald's your man. Lean to the Left? Bernie or Hillary. The destination is the same, a collectivist statist nightmare with the hapless confused electorate playing the star role as victims of the totalitarian double bind.

The intellectuals set us up for this of course and I will probalby return to this in a later post but suffice to say it created a false political map which posited Left wing over here and right wing over there  -take your pick. But it never told people that both are variants of statism and the real choice is between Leftist and Rightist Statists or limited government libertarians or as I prefer to specify Objectivists.The mainstream media will not unpick this fallacy because they are in the forefront of pushing this false consciousness of statism and dare not let the public know there is a real alternative to the statist semi global-wide horror show taking place before our very eyes.

The 6 Faces Of Trump

Which one will we get today? He is chameleon Corsican and caricature.This is the characteristic of the sociopath, all things to all people - or perhaps we should just call him a politician? The man is a palimpest and republicans can write what they want on him, project all their wish fantasies and who knows, on Monday or Tuesday they might just come up Trumps. Ye gods. Americans one can forgive, but Objectivist Americans??!!! Take 3 Ayn Rands and see me in the mourning.

The Rise and Rise of the Faux Insurgents

Beware of Establishment figures flying under the false colours of insurgency! The insider corrupt crony Donald posing as out the beltway when he could not be more establishment if he tried is one of the richest ironies of the whole Trump campaign. He is up to his neck in deals with political apparatchicks on the take which is why he leans towards authoritarian statism. This is not a break with the past but a consolidation of it, an entrenchment of it a doubling down with it. The unholy alliance of State and business could not be more typified than in the absurd strutting bragadocious person of Donald Trump. His latent Fascism stems from this toxic source. How one might wonder can he not be bedevilled from day one with a conflict of interest as both political poacher and gamekeeper? The fact that he will not be called on this obvious fact shows the extent to which everyone has now come to terms with the corruption of the mixed economy system with its unholy alliance of business and state.

 This is what the people wanted and it is what they have got and will be stuck with until someone comes along and explains to them that the choice does not have to be big statists of the Left versus big statists of the right but rather between a candidate arguing for big government versus one arguing for small government in short between statism or capitalism. Unless this is addressed we run the very real risk of being overtaken by either the shadow of Fascism or the shadow Communism without anyone discovering that these are false alternatives and the real choice is between slavery or freedom.

Feminist Cat out the bag

Interesting to hear Germain Greer say last week on Woman's Hour R4 that Feminism requires socialism to be realizeable which is something I haven always thought but not heard any feminist say to starkly, if at all. The delightfully subversive and caustic yet very amusing Julie Burchill gave her a right royal verbal straffing which was very enjoyable even though she is a self confessed Communist and  I have never actually heard her try to defend  or articulate her socialist views. Still  University Professor Germain Greer is dangerously unhinged and who would  want any son or daughter of theirs having  their head filled with the rancid embittered feminist gobblegook she peddals and running up a huge £9 thousand bill in student fees in the process?
