Welfare in Aspic

Governments come and go but welfare endures. Like all the other philosophical crap the West has absorbed welfare came from the Germans with Bismarx. German may well have been defeated on the battle grounds of the 1st and 2nd world wars but there is n doubt that it is the philosophical political ideological victor of the 20th century right up to today.

Kant, Marx, Hegel Heidigger et all -thanks a bunch, their malign influence hangs like a dark toxic cloud over European polities across the piece and let us not forget their darkest hour -the construction of the EU monolith which as most observers recognize re the EU is merely the continuation of German hegemony by other means.Hitler first outlined the blueprint for a united europe.

Now thankfully Germany is a busted flush politically as hey ho they are embracing Fascism again! and Merkel star has waned but back to welfare.

The tories have accommodated Welfare right from the get go bar some stout but almost solitary and ultimately futile resistance from the tory prophet Churchill who once again was warning the British people about the dangers of socialism but once again they turned a deaf ear and we have been paying the price ever since. What did Churchill say vis a vis socialism in England? That it would require a Gestapo to enforce it. Howls of outrage from the Left who never wanted it pointed out that the German Nazis were socialists -the clue was in th name national socialist party.

Now we have government agents and operatives telling us what to say, think,feel, eat, drink,behave, policing our words governing every aspect of our existence. If it waddles like a a gestapo, quacks like a gestapo...

Speeches from both Hitler and Goebelles testify to their affinity and direct allegiance with socialist principles but these were inconvenient truth for the left socialists who prevailed.

Fast forward to today and the kindly but deluded Ian Duncan Smith who attempted to finesse a reformed Welfare State and its the same story -the tories cast in the craven role of making socialism work and getting brickbats for their troubles.

Managerial socialism and welfare is what the tories have always posited post '45 bar a short period when Thatcher wielded the handbag and pushed back the socialist frontiers a few hundred yards but now all that ground will be retaken and extended thru Corbyn with the help of the pink tories and Welfare remains, unchallenged at its socialist egalitarian altruist roots and more a drain than ever on creativity, enterprise, freedom and liberty.

Pope Beatifies Communist priest

The head of the kiddie fiddling  Roman Catholic church has officially turned a Marxist El Salvadoran priest into a saint. Isn't that all you need to know about this obscene despicable death cult religion that holds tyrannical sway over a billion people across the globe and is responsible for the deaths of millions in its sick and depraved history and career of evil?

Communism/ catholicism hand in glove. The church sucked up to every totalitarian dictatorship in the 20th century and here it is turning a commie loving priest into a saint. Why would any decent self respecting person want anything to do with such an amoral institution? That's the power of mysticism, still holding people in thrall centuries after the horrifick nitemare of the Dark Ages has passed. Still the hold endures. The power of unreason reaches across the ages and centuries holding people in thrall to its irrationalist creed -seemingly forever.

What Trump should say to the British People

My fellow Brits, forgive this breach of protocol as I know it is a well established principle that a prsident does not interfere directly in an ally's internal political affairs but I feel I have to break with such observances for I have to tell you in all earnestness I do not like what I am seeing from your once I regret to say  great country. Reluctant though I am to express the following thoughts I feel I have no choice when I see the disturbing trajectory you are on politically. The thought of a Corbyn government feels me frankly with horror and incredulity such that I find it hard even to utter these words a Corbyn government without an ominous and profound sense of consternation and revulsion

What on earth are the British people thinking of? In the last election your Theresa May only barely scrapped through ahead of an avowed Marxist, a malevolent miserable pathetic excuse of a human being who has sidled up to every monstrous regime he could find that was against Britain and its interests and by extension ours too. He is an anti semite, a proud supporter of vile fascistic arabic states and leaders, terrorist outfits, racist and malign, supported idreologically the old soviet union and as it has been revealed that the old Labour leader and extreme leftist Michael Foot was supplying information to the soviets it is inconceivable that Corbyn was not up to the same with his rabid Marxist ideology to say nothing of his despicable soft speaking sidekick John Mcdonnel with his sinister studied calmness and pathological hatred of freedom and the only system that guarantees it capitalism.

Though it pains me to say it if this vile crew of Stalinists is elected in to power Great Britain will from that moment be regarded by our country as a foe not an ally. The Special relationship which has been cultivated over generations will die an instant death the moment those sinister characters
 walk across the threshold of 10 and 11 downing st.

How can the United States maintain normal traditional relationship with a country that is hostile to freedom and liberty and the capitalist system as compromised as it has become over the decades with creeping mixed economy programmes and policies which even our country has sadly not been immune to?

But this would represent a violent break even with that as it threatens the UK with mass institutionalized emmiseration and  and impoverishment on the scale of what is taking place in Venezuela right now which the leftist media has studiously avoided reporting on.

America may end up having to set up another Marshall Plan after Corbyn has finished with your country. If it is asked to provide the means for the overthrow of such a dictatorial monstrous communist cabal my country will not hesitate to come to your assistance as we did the last time Great Britain was threatened by an extreme socialist enemy.We will do everything in our power to stop a Corbyn government from destroying the UK but you can avoid such an outcome by coming to your senses and not voting in such a freedom and liberty hating hobgoblin in the first place.

The decision is yours and I can only hope -and indeed pray were I not a proud atheist that that the British electorate after staring and peering over the abyss wisely and prudently step back and go in the opposite direction. You need a Maggie to provide you with such inspiration but alas you only have a May who does not seem to have any principles whatever, good or bad but she is still a million times preferable to Corbyn so please hold your noses and vote for her again if she is still standing at the next election and then after that see if you can find someone of moral calibre which your political scene is sadly lacking at this moment.

Regards, US President

How to counter the Red Menace

There is a very real threat that Britain could fall under communist rule and dictatorship within the year aided and abetted by the weak amoral tories wrangling over Brexit, frustrating the will of the referendum electorate and thus letting in the Corbinistas by default.

This could be precluded by the adoption of the British Constitution as outlined below whereby no such Marxist assault on the polity could even get to first base as its policies would fly directly in the face of every tenet contained within it, violating core principles of liberty and individual rights, reducing the voters to feudal serfs working for the state in state run businesses,regulated and taxed to within an inch of their lives, run by local soviets in the guise of localism and decentralization, paid hoodlums from the ranks of the newly re empowered trade unions and the thugocracy of Momentum and its petty tyrants and hirelings.

Demagoguery would never get to first base and the British citizens would be protected by law from any such state encroachments, arbitrary rule and power thus making it impossible for any would be dictator to use majority rule as an excuse for mob rule, extortion, bribery, threats of violence and incarcerations for any who resist the powers of the state to curtail their freedom and strip them of their property rights and thus their lives.

With such a constitution in place a century ago the Welfare State would never have been born, a hideous statist monster with powers to plunder, rob, pillage, loot at will on an industrial scale, tyranny institutionlalized by dictat, at the point of a gun with all the force of the state to deprive citizens of their liberty in the name of the common good -nauseatingly and hypocritically, fantastically framed as a moral good, a virtuous enterprise, the sacrificing of all to all with quasi religious overtones got from the same philosophical religious root and base of altruism -from each according to his need and that need a claim on everyone's life, a system of human bondage, man reduced to a beast of burden, enslaved to a collectivist creed cut from the Christian creed of self sacrifice and crucifixion. A gross perversion and inversion of morality trumpetted to this very day as the ultimate moral good.

A British Constitution

Government shall pass no laws or acts abridging people's freedom; freedom of speech inalienable, no laws restricting it such as blasphemy laws recast as hate crimes or hate speech

Government shall have no tax raising powers

Freedom of the press shall be guaranteed, no state control or regulation  of the media - no state broadcaster -Bbc privatised

There shall be a Separation of Church and State (disestablishment)

There shall be an immediate dissolution of the monarchy

Abolition of 2nd chamber, House of Lords as unconstitutional

Abolition of the Welfare State and also to  to include areas of health, education, transport, the Arts, sport, culture, media, unemployment, social security, childcare, adult social care and housing -immediate selling off of all social housing stock including housing associations, cessation of all government house building programmes

Privatisation of all public spaces, selling of all public land, forests,national parks,roads streets, motorways, waterways etc, abolition of greenbelt and the successive Town and Country acts restricting building.

Abolition of Eminent Domain -Compulsory Purchase Orders

Privatisation of fire services

Separation of Economy and State, free banking -  re privatisation of Bank of England

Government shall have no regulatory powers over trade industry and business or engage in any form of' partnership' with business such as obtains in the statist construct of the mixed economy.

Prohibition laws regarding consumption of drugs repealed

Government shall impose no protectionist tarriffs on imported goods -abolition of all import export controls bar for issues of national security and the checking of those with communicable diseases or suspected terrorists

Government shall form and create no 'quasi' autonomous bodies -Quangos and all such, without exception, to be abolished

What do we owe Future Generations?

Nothing! They don't exist! You cannot owe the non existent anything hello! Man is not a self sacrificing animal to the living let alone to the yet to be born. What a monstrous proposition. Eat less meat! Consume less, your carbon footprint is too big, sacrifice for future generations. Bollocks! No!

The New Puritanism -Environmentalism. Last time it was Malthusianism and that was a monstrous lie too. Mortification of the flesh anyone? Surely you are not a denier? A heretic. Burn them at the stake -o you can't -it will cause pollution.

Religion is dead, long live environmentalism. It has exactly the same pieties, strictures, shibboleths, hectoring sermonizing, threats, imprecations, mythology and irrationalism and should be treated with the same contempt. It should be seen as every man's duty to up his meat consumption in direct defiance of the sustainability crowd, the anti growth zealots and eco doom mongers.

China's Cure for Islam

A million muslims in camps being programmed out of their Islamic faith! It's an ambitious audacious project but you have to admire the Chinese for attempting it. Of course it is shocking and totally against objectivist principles, the state involving itself in personal matters of faith and belief but we live in parlous times and is the West's approach to the Islamic menace so much better?

Here we shrug our shoulders and allow muslims to run our prisons and brainwash fellow criminals with Islamic propaganda. The Chinese have looked at the West's approach and its hardly surprising that they were not impressed. If a country has a death wish it would make sense but China does not and it is besieged with an islamic threat of its own and is not about to passively acquiesce in its downfall.

And look at the self confidence and optimism of its belief in transforming transgressive minds - an amazing self confidence that we in the West are sorely lacking and the irony is we have far more to be self confident about than China if we only knew it, with its bleak amoral communist ideology and even its Confucian philosophy as good as it is in parts cannot compete or compare with the enlightenment pro reason values of liberty and individual rights that is the bedrock of Western civilization. All of that lost in our anti reason multicultural political correctness that has engulfed our culture and eviscerated it.

No, the Chinese are to be commended in their intentions if not perhaps in the mass incarceration but I do find it preferable to  the West's morally invertebrate approach and its craven  surrender to nihilism across the board including Islam which could end up posing an existential threat to it if it does not become robust in defending its glorious heritage pretty sharpish.

Scots (Not) Missed

If Scotland wants independence from the UK why does it continue to take handouts in the form of English tax funded welfare to the scots in the form of the notorious Barnet Formula? Should the SNP not come clean with its electorate and acknowledge the debt of gratitude it owes to the English with its endless dole to their Scottish dependencies but of course in time honoured fashion Scotland bites the hand that feeds it.

Now it is in search of another sugar daddy in the form of Brussels. Good luck with that one. It will be hitching its wagon to a fallen star as the European continent is about to be engulfed in a tidal wave of fascistic nationalism with its truculent members straining at the Brussels leash and about to bring about the dissolution of the whole shooting match which will take  EU sucker down -and the Scots with it.

Some Independence anyway as Scotland seeks to tie its self to Brussels apron strings. It's about time turgid Sturgid talked turkey to her turkey like electors about to vote for Christmas if they ever get the chance.

Atheist but believe in the Paranormal?

Sorry, No! The bbc radio 4 prog wants people to think that circle can be squared and seemed to take some pleasure in trying but it is nonsense on its face. But why would they even want to try you may ask gentle reader?

Atheism requires the paramountcy of reason and the left fears this -and rightly so. Once people start embracing reason there is no telling where it will lead. They will begin to question possibly secular forms of unreason like collectivism or am I being too optimistic? Maybe..

For atheism denotes non belief in God -it leaves open a whole vast field of things someone who is an atheist could believe in but surely what it must preclude is the realm of un reason ie religion,faith, mysticism, the supernatural or heaven forefend the paranormal.

Thus some woman who was identifying as (as they say these days) an atheist was recounting with all earnestness her paranormal experiences. No! Does not compute. God is to include all supernatural experiences including th paranormal. Nice try stupid bbc -but sorry -she was no atheist.

When is the State Illegitimate?

This is the problem I have for as far as I am concerned it becomes illegitimate the second it uses force and coercion against the citizens (or in the uk we would say subjects). That is to say whenever it imposes taxation on its citizens it loses all authority and moral legitimacy. So we have a problem Euston. Having sold the pass centuries ago on taxation it is very hard to take a stand this far down the line. People have been inured for centuries to taxation and have no leg to stand on now.

Still, force is force, coercion is coercion and a criminal act does not become moral because it has been committed a billion times or more.

A system embedded for millenia, entrenched down the ages, institutionalized as a norm, has a very
 powerful hold on its victims. Who can challenge custom and convention especially as it has taken on a moral dimension, woven into the philosophical fabric through the religiously instantiated concept of altruism, an unquestioned edict sanctified by centuries of rote tradition and conditioning, underpinned by practically every philosophical school since Plato with the honourable exception of Aristotle and Ayn Rand.

Even the non religious secular minded have taken on board the ideology of altruism if not in practice still as an agreed ideal to be aspired to if not fully realized. Until the altruist spell is broken and men assert their inalienable right to self determination, liberty, freedom from the arbitrary dictats of the state the slavery of statism will prevail and men will continue to be spiritual slaves and ultimatley physical ones as well as observe present trends.

.

Concepts

Concepts make the world go round! They don't exist as such but without them there would be no civilization. What amazes me about Ayn Rand is she says things you have never heard before but should have done. She talks about the very building blocks of civilization, things we should learn at our mother's knee or just after.

School teaches you what to think but not how to think. It tells you that thought is impotent, that one view is just as valid as another, that there is no objective truth, anything goes, one man's theory is as good as the next, feelings are paramount, there is no objective history just subjective history based on race, class, gender etc.

The individual is impotent, he must be subordinated to the group, tribe, sacrificed for the common good. Mysticism spiritual or secular is promoted and no critical thought is allowed towards a person's faith and beliefs for such would be a thought crime, hate crime.

Nothing is allowed beyond the perceptual level of consciousness, everything is random and arbitrary including all subjects on the curicula which are just a mishmash of concretes piled sky high to be memorized and parroted without any attempt to integrate or conceptualize.

Modern education via the state is a rape of the mind on all levels from kindergarten to university.A crippling of the cognitive faculties is the avowed but unspoken aim of the education establishment designed to create a passive bovine subject population who will vote for collectivist political parties to enslave and herd them ultimately into 21st century slave pens. Mass Corbinization can be the only outcome and there is no one standing between the people and their fate if there ever was.

Things that Annoy me

People who talk on their phones in public. People who ride their bikes on the pavement. People who ride their bikes on the road - I fervently hope they will be crushed under th wheels of a 4by4.  People who give their pets human names. People who let their dogs urinate on park benches -esp if I am sitting there. (If a person urinated against a bench they would be arrested but apparently dogs doing it is ok). People who tell you that theirs is a rescue dog. People with grating voices, to include accents, scottish,welsh, yorkshire etc. Radio 4 - full of whining bitter and twisted middle class wimmin feminists riding their collectivist hobby horses -public service propaganda -an endless pitch for government solutions to everything, North Korea  style. That's it really, I'm an easy going kind of person as you can see.

May Outs herself as a Red

Quelle surprise. May is whoring around for Labour votes, appealing to disillusioned Labour voters who find Corbyn too much to take -she doesn't say why, and here's why. She shares his views -she cannot, will not and has not repudiated socialism and its tenets that he represents, she just hopes Labour voters will see Corbyn as weird and  anti semitic.

So the most extreme Labour leader ever is about to become prime minister and a tory PM has nothing to say about it.

What does she offer these estranged Labour voters? Moderation and patriotism.

Moderate what -statism? Apparently. And we all know what appeals to patriotism means. Empty bromides, a moral vacuum where an ideology should be.

The electorate have been conned and its been going on a long time. Until a small state anti mixed economy pro liberty and freedom party emerges we are going to be left choosing between 5 variants of statism and that apparently is democracy.

Supreme Twat Kavanaugh v Me Too

What an invidious choice! The supreme slimeball sex fiend Kavnaugh with his religious hypocrisy, hair trigger temper and nauseating sense of entitlement to say nothing of his toxic views on abortion v the hysterical emotionally incontinent Me Too crowd -I'm a victim too! Back in 1972 a man made a pass at me! Give me a million.

A plague on both their houses but frankly Kavanaugh is such a creep and a deadly serious threat to Americans, the constitution and to all women that I don't care what low underhand methods the Democrats deploy to unseat him and if he does pass the audition I hope they pursue every inquiry from the long queue of women no doubt waiting to emerge with their stories and dog him to the bitter end.

The fact that the judge gets the imprimatur of sex pest Trump should surely rest this case.

Green eyed monster

There was a time when the Left used to excoriate capitalism for not producing enough stuff for the poor but when this proved a blatant canard it switched tack and now it is bemoaning that capitalism creates too much stuff and will it kindly stop it before it destroys the planet.

 This is the latest green message at its party conference and the government is also asking ( beware when government asks companies to do anything as it is invariably the kind of asking you cannot refuse) companies like Primark to come up with ways to produce less stuff because its fabric particles get into the water system and will cause a eco armageddon.

So poor people can go hang now can they since they will be the victims of this anti growth anti producing ideology as cheap products will no longer be available in the shops to cut down on our carbon footprints but it will at least enable the greenies to virtue signal as they destroy the capitalist system which is their obvious and clear ambition.

A journalist asked one of its spokeswomen if they would consider joining the Labour party now that it is so far to the left but she declined presumably because Corbyn is not left enough for them but he was right to identify their Marxist inclinations and such is where their toxic anti life ideology would lead us were enough gullible voters to be tempted by the greeny siren call.

Trans People and the Age of Subjectivism

There is an identity crisis. A is no longer A. It could be B or C or whatever you choose. The law of identity is dead. It has been supplanted by the Law of feelings and subjectivism. Objective reality? Are you kidding? The German philosophers two hundred years ago disproved that nonsense.

So here we are. Gender fluidity, men walking into female toilets and changing rooms because they 'identify' as women. The Left is eating itself over this one with gay groups castigating Stonewall for defending this insanity. So something good has come of it at least.

We have now moved into an Age of Non Identity politics,  Ickean politics. Shape-shifting reptiles are walking among us!

It is now pretty much illegal to boldly assert the law of identity -to assert that A is A. You are offending those who believe it is b or c. Acknowledge the Kantian universe or pay a heavy price!

An assertion of the arbitrary and an insistence of it enforced by law is the ultimate totalitarianism which of course was the goal of the post modernist left all along and those chickens have now come home to roost.

Feminism v Women

I always start off feeling sympathetic and empathetic to women and their unfair treatment over the centuries but as soon as one of their self proclaimed representative feminists starts up that residual synmpatico quickly evaporates. Why are they so obnoxious, talking in prescribed stock phrases, exuding misandry from every pore?

They take a perfectly good case, a legitimate argument and turn it into something toxic and poisonous. Take the issue of sexual harrassment which no one can doubt has been a problem in the workplace and no doubt universities but their prescriptions are so draconian and prohibitive they would not be out of place in Orwell's 1984 in their sinister applications and implications. It's the anti sex league with government functionaries monitoring student's behaviour, the males having to go on courses to be instructed in how to comport themselves around female students.

Effectively the takeaway as they say these days is that men and women cannot coexist in any social space without rigorously enforced codes of behaviour and harsh sanctions for transgressors. Sexual McCarthyism stalks the corridors of academe and the workplaces too, a national hysteria and paranoia, a new puritanism positively Victorian in its rigid and hidebound applications.

Modern feminism has lost the plot and hopefuly there will be a backlash against it before too long or the population rate will plummet as men and women remain in their respective silos eyeing one another warily and suspiciously - which, some would say, is what feminists wanted to happen all along.

Happy Not Clappy

Don't whoop holler or clap at a Manchester university -you may disturb the autistic and the deaf! Just wave your hands about like they do in deaf school -jazz hands its called apparently.Yes the bats have got into the belfry.

If society is to be predicated on the needs and requirements of the defective and subnormal and those with exotic food allergies where does that leave the rest of us, the normal majority? Make way for the cripples and the disabled!

It's more virtue signalling of course. Look how virtuous we are in turning the whole world upside down to cater to and accommodate the special few who are to be elevated to a higher status by dint of their abnormalities.

It's sinister really, a sort of inverted eugenics is at work where the fit and able are to be sacrificed to the unfit and disabled. Crippling the able is the left's game -the ultimate  egalitarianism. It is animated by a spirit of hatred for the fit and a desire to drag it down - pure nihilism in other words.

Cometh the hour.....

It's a long standing fact that the only truth ever uttered in tory conference season is on the fringes and so it proved to be yesterday with an impassioned barnstorming performance by Borris - (if your'e tired of Johnson you are tired of life).

Of course the media tried to downplay it but it blew Theresa May away in a devastatingly powerful performance with all the Johnson vim and vigour with the combination of levity, gravitas, genuine anger and surgical assault on all the villains of the piece from Corbyn Hammond May, Brexit betrayal, tory weakness and vacillation,treachery the whole gamut of evils swatted away like irksome flies.

Borris is a freak within the tory party as he actually believes in something, is passionate about it and it is manifest in every move and gesture and of course he is an orator and can move crowds with his words.

Most tories are dogmatic pragmatists, stubborn in their wrong rather than their right. They will go to the barricades for pragmatism and moderation  but in an age when the conflict is clearly between good and evil, an existential fight, this is worse than useless, it is complicity with that evil and the only beneficiaries will be the  fascist left that has taken over the Labour party and is beginning to feel confident that the prize of power will soon be theirs -by dint of nothing more than tory default.

Tories will not be soon forgiven for that and the only good that could come out of this whole debacle is the breakup and dissolution of the tory party altogether and the emergence of a non statist right party that does not feel the need to tack to the left in a Corbyn lite caricature but will stoutly defend liberty and the small state.

Why are so many businessmen Leftists?

The mixed economy is as marriage made in hell between business and politics but it is an arranged marriage with one party, the hapless businessman corralled into it, in  an effective involuntary servitude, like an invitation by the mafia one cannot refuse.

Politics gets the vicarious kudos of having the businessman's - albeit coerced - imprimatur and business gets the protection by the state from upstart rivals who are tied up in red tape and government bureaucracy of regulations which they themselves can negotiate exemptions from by pull and favour thru the corrupt lobby system.

Big business thus loves big government as it acts as a protector from rival competitors and it can gain some albeit perverse reflected glory by being associated with the government of the day and receiving official recognition.

Business therefor has to be leftist in order to survive and thrive under a mixed economy and should any business stick its neck out and argue for a small state with low taxation and regulation it will be singled out for special attention, become the target of highly vocal vilification, censure and persecution and will have inland revenue agents all over its business like a rash. Self preservation thus makes all business in the mixed economy Stockholm Syndrome Leftists.

The Heseltine Hammond Sindrome

When businessmen go into politics it is almost always disastrous. The very skills that make them so successful in the marketplace or what passes for it, make them a total disaster in politics. Entrepreneurs by definition have Big Ideas, they create business empires and are hugely successful and wealthy so doing.

But translating such skills into politics leads to more politics, grandiose adventures and schemes -the Heseltine sindrome where huge sums of money can be commandeered for vanity projects -they love things like the Hs2 monstrosity and similar ventures - and since it is not their money they can become even more ambitious and expansive, more reckless with no cost to them when  the whole thing crumbles to dust leaving losses and debts for someone else to shoulder ie the taxpayers who are the pawns in the big shot businessman cum politician's maniacal projections.

When businessmen express opinions on politics they are almost invariably the most statist of all, it is almost as if they take a holiday from reality, no longer having to persuade people to go into partnership they have the brute power of state coercion at their disposal where the gun and dictat take the place of reason and mutual self interest.

Thus state power corrupts even the most noble the minute they get their feet under the table and go native and politics for the businessman is therefor a a siren call they would do well to resist - for everyone's sake.

Mixed economy Blues -and Reds?

Corbyn made an extraordinary comment amidst his socialist rant at the Labour conference last week, absurdly characterizing his state takeover of the economy and business as 'real mixed economy'. Makes you wonder what he thinks we have now which by any definition is socialism with at best a dash of capitalism.

But is he proferring a mixed economy? It is nationalization disguised by the introduction of regionalized government agencies, mini soviets, an illusory diffusioin of centralized power into a Maoist localism first mooted by Cameron whose effects will be every bit as deleterious as the Soviet nationlization of industry and business from the '45 Labour government.

Now is surely the time to challenge the mixed economy model from a libertarian position since the Marxists have taken control of Labour - everything should now be on the table ideologically. Do not expect any such thing from the tory conference, just more feeble, half hearted, apologetic defence of capitalism hedged in with buts and provisos, damning with faint praise and the use of such coy evasive terminology as '21st century capitalism' '- ie a diluted, effete, eviscerated, mixed economy compromised, bastardized, emasculated, hideously deformed, hollowed out caricature of capitalism in name only.

And still the yawning chasm where a new politics and ideology should be remains, a windswept landscape unpopulated, barren and bare.

5 Months without tv...

And not missing it a bit. 100 channels and nothing to watch. Tv is so bland and pc because it is a highly state regulated medium. Contrast it with the edginess of the internet, youtube. If you want an inkling of what youtube would look and sound like if the government ever got its hands on it and subjected it to  heavy handed oppressive regulation  just watch tv.

It is hardly surprising that the state would like to regulate the  internet as it is a threat to the preservation of its carefully cultivated and projected benign image. If there is to be an equivalent of a peasant's revolt it will come from the new digital arena which is why the state is on the look out for the slightest pretext to rein it in and clip its wings and will always use some spurious pretext to do so -the standard one being  the  protection of children.

It will use the language of fear, referring to the internet revolution and its architects as 'tech giants' a term taken up by old media as it sees its lunch being eaten by the new kids on the block.


Welcome to the Red Tory Conference

In which insignificant nobodies fight futile personality battles and a Remainoid 'leader' attempts to shove her Bremain Chequers deal down the gullets of recalcitrant members and collectivist policies are trumpetted as an alternative to the ultimate Red Labourite Corbyn and his fellow Marxists who smell victory -by default and secretly give praise to May and her red tories for paving the way for his effortless ingress into 10 Downing st.

Its not as if the tories are betraying any values or principles and have just recently become ideologically corrupt and amoral. They never had any principles to betray in the first place. That is their tragedy, and by extension the country's as well.

How much ruin is in a nation -how long have we left? One prominent tory columnist was predicting recently that the tories could be in the wilderness for the next 15 years but it is hard to see how the country could survive 5 years of Corbyn let alone any longer. Of course the tories have been in the wilderness for the longest time -it is hard to know when the moral intellectual deline began -it has a Chequered history and one I confess to be not fully conversant with, only recalling the Thatcher glory years with any clarity.

The Objectivist Millwallian chant -'everybody hates us and we don't care' may be all well and good but unless I have missed it their ingress into the polity and culture has yet to even begin. Holy shit, its hard to see how Western culture can survive much longer of the present garbage unless I am mis reading the whole thing? But when not one single person is speaking up in the whole political field, not one commentator, one champion of freedom how can one be anything other than despondent and pessimistic?

Who qualifies as a philosopher?

Anyone whose writing and theories are unintelligible, incoherent, divorced from reality, openly mystical or semi mystical, collectivist, anti reason and anti human nature.

Small wonder Ayn Rand is not regarded by today's intellectuals as a philosopher. She is dismissed as simplistic but what her academic enemies hate and fear her for is that she challenges the whole philosophical field since and including Kant and exposes their racket. She points out with ample illustrations how their irrationalist creeds are mere secular versions of the mystic creed and a naked attempt to replace the old feudal kings with their secular variant of the philosopher kings.

Seeing how the renaissance had  robbed the Church and mysticism of its powers the new philosophers identified reason as a threat not just to the mystics but to themselves and they knew mysticism had to be saved and set out to destroy reason in order to do it.

Now the philosophers are the masters and they use the same techniques as the mystics of old -unintelligibility, incoherence, irrationalism and their nonsensical nostrums now rule as the mystical ramblings and utterances of the ancient high priests did before them.

Try the Waterstone's Game!

You go into Waterstone's book store where all the new publications are displayed and the game should you wish to play it is Spot a Book on Politics and Current Affairs Not Written from a Left wing Perspective. It took me 10 minutes going through scores of titles before I came up with: One! Stephen Pinkers latest work whose title escapes me but is broadly pro reason and positive about technology etc. He us mixed in his politics so may be I should call it half a book. And that was it.

Now Waterstone's has every right to be a left wing bookstore but that undoubtedly is what it is.

I go upstairs and get a new copy of the Fountainhead. I ask the staff member serving me if they have any non fictional Rand. He walks over to a shelf containing political works and says we did have one, I think, on philosophy -I didn't know she wrote any on that subject. I mentioned maybe it was philosophy who needs he and he responded, well you are clearly a Rand nut and know more about it than me.'

I must admit I was a bit taken aback by that and did not quite know how to respond and muttered some lame comment and he replied that perhaps it was an unfortunate turn of phrase and we sort of joked about it and I went off with my purchase. Then I remembered that about 15 years ago I had a similar experience with a Waterstones member of staff when I inquired into Rand's non fiction and what they had. One staffer asked what sort of books Rand wrote and when I said philosophy etc the other staffer who was also present immediately interjected and said in a tone of matter of fact finality 'Rand was coupled with the above mentioned has given me pause for thought re Rand and how anyone who expresses interest let alone admiration for her writing is seen as suspect and worthy of contempt - even by members of staff in a bookshop!

I guess people know the enemy when they see it. Had I gone in inquiring about Hitler's Meine Kampf I would have been treated with more respect and Waterstone's have had that on its shelves in the fairly recent past.

No, when it is Rand even the normal customer staff protocols go out the window.I guess fair is fair. If a writer threatens the whole culture and philosophy of the day and excoriates collectivism its adherents will be unnerved and act accordingly. Still, it's fun going into such a bookstore and reminding people that Rand existed and her philosophy will not be ignored, however much  they wish otherwise.


Theresa May to Finally Challenge Corbyn

-By putting forth socialist proposals and policies of her own! Announcements include telling parents how long their children should be on 'social media'. (Note incidentally how the technological internet revolution has been reduced to a  collectivist statist characterization -'social media' for as we know unless a word has 'social' in front of it it has not been sanctified and legitimized by the leftists who dominate public discourse and set the terminology and definitions.

The state is loco (literally!) parentis so why on earth shouldn't it dictate such things to the infantilized parents in this Brave New World  of universal collectivism?

I cannot even remember the other policies that were announced but all had the dreary, paternalist tory socialist imprimatur on them so it's now official -there is to be no opposition to the Marxist Corbyn Government in Waiting which is what it now clearly is.

Like a ship slowly sailing towards an iceburg the tory ship of state sails blithely on as the country resigned to its fate prepares to go under the hammer and sickle.

Food Allergen Hysteria?

Something is wrong about this story re Pret and the girl who died eating one of its products. If she had food allergens why was she not more careful? Could she not prepare food at home and not eat out -especially if unsure of the ingredients of the food she was eating/

Retailers surely cannot be expected to cater to those with abnormal eating disorders and allergens and it is their responsibility to exercise judgement in this matter which she clearly did not.

There is now a witchhunt against Pret, a sort of food fascism Mccarthyism that is ugly and that the media should fan this irrational behaviour and hysteria is appalling.

The politicians are riding the bandwagon as they can always be counted upon to do, forever on the lookout for yet more opportunities to regulate and control everything. The food labelling business is already way out of control and is responsible for higher food prices as who do you think pays for the excessive labelling of foods anyway?

It makes you wonder how people survived before such labeling was introduced and it speaks to a national neurosis and health food obsession where food has become yet one more vehicle for public displays of virtue signalling, where one's inner purity is expressed in the food one consumes which also links to old religious habits of seeking purity through strict dietary  regimens.

Finally I cannot help thinking that there is an element of neurosis in food allergies themselves, a way of attention seeking although of course as we have seen it can be real and genuine but there ma well be an emotional psychological element to the phenomena that needs exploring.

The Invisible Hand of the State

The workings of the market - in as far as there is a market anymore are far more transparent than the workings of the state so Adam Smith was half right.

For obscurantism, cloak and dagger opaqueness look to the state for in its Byzantine Kafkaesque circumlocutions, its evasive language, its obsfuscations and coded language - it is the very embodyment of invisibility itself.Government bureaucracy is vast and its workings are  as translucent as a murky swamp.

Do government agents come up to you in the street and say the following, 'Mr jones, we understand you are earning above average income and we wish to take a large percentage of your income to redistribute to more worthy recipients -ie those who have not earned it and whose helplessness and fecklessnes is a claim on your life so please pay up now'?

They do no such thing. The invisible hand of the state swoops down and filches said money from your bank account, or the state forces your employer to do it for them turning business into a tax collecting agency for the state that is too gutless to do the larceny itself thus implicating business in the felony.

Nothing is seen, it is done in the dead of night. Government uses coercion, intimidation, threats, bullying towards any who may have the temerity to object to this state looting by stealth. The invisible hand of the state is strangling the life out of business and entrepreneuralism and it does it secretly, covertly, like a thief in the night, skulking in the shadows.

When is Anti Globalisation Cool?

When the Left is expressing it. When Trump does it it becomes Isolationism! Of course round here we think globalization is cool and both the left and Trump are wrong. With the Left it is clear anti g means anti capitalism. With trump it is more confused. He does not like countries imposing tarriffs -so he imposes them. If you are opposed to cannibalism do you protest by practising cannibalism? You do if your name is Donald Trump and most of his supporters do not think such behaviour is in any way contradictory because they are as irrational and emotionalist as he is -he is their champion of the irrational.

Trump used the word globalism and I have yet to determine whether this means the same as globalization. On looking up the latter word of wiki it is very confusing so I looked up anti globalization and it all became very clear indeed.

The anti globalization left are anti neoliberalism ie anti free market , free trade. With his economic nationalism it is clear Trump shares some of the anti capitalism of the left but uses slightly different language to articulate it and this I will explore in a later post.

Robert Halfon - Despicable human being

Tory minister Robert Halfon is not only physically disabled but mentally disabled too. I predicted tories would not critique Corbyn but I never anticipated at least one of their number would tweet support for him and come on radio 4  on PM prog saying tories should emulate Corbyn and create social programmes for the poor, wittering on about the unfair society ad nauseam. He should be deselected and told to f### off to the Labour party where he belongs.

This pond life and pathetic excuse for a human being used to be a Thatcherite and even admired Ayn Rand but now is reduced to this treacherous behaviour and has gone truly native advocated bigger government and saying tories must be even more like labour than they are already. If they lose the next election it will be because of human detritus like Halfon. Get the sickbag.

End to Prohibition

Law enforcement is so busy trying to protect people from harming themselves they have forgotten their sole function of protecting them from harm caused by others. Prohibition re drugs is a hangover from the days when the church in conjunction with the state saw its role as attempting to save souls but those days are long gone and the state should return to its proper and only function of fighting crime not people's personal habbits.

Prohibition and we speak of drugs here is an extension of the welfare state where the nannying knows no bounds and personal choice and habbits are now being -policed by the state with catastrophic consequences for society, policing and the preservation of a stable polity.

All drugs without exception that is to say legal and illegal including prescription drugs should be freely available on the high street and all retail outlets to anyone over the age of 18 with the same procedures to ensure such as obtains with the sale  of alcohol.

The state should not seek to muscle in on this free market supply and demand process with taxation or regulation, least of all be the purveyor and dispenser of said drugs as some eager Liberal supporters of decriminalization opportunistically advocate with an eye on the rich pickings from taxed revenue in a nationalized drug industry.

The above is not to in anyway advocate the use of such drugs as they clearly have no medicinal value and are taken for recreational purposes and some can be seriously harmful to the drug taker but decriminalization is based on the inalienable right of individuals to make such choices themselves and not have their actions circumscribed by a meddling authoritarian and invasive state which principle is one of the fundamental bulwarks of liberty.

Political Transgenderism

In a mixed economy culture everything is merging and melding it everything else! Gender is fluid -they claim but so too is political ideology. Which would explain why no far right party or movement has emerged to challenge the far left Labour party. Not that the media will refer to Corbyn as far left of course. He is apparently a Social Democrat. John Mcdonnel will no doubt soon hold out an olive branch to David Owen and Shirley Williams in the la la land the media inhabits.

Now why would there be a vacuum from where the far right would presumably have emerged in response to Corbyn. You do not need a multiple choice exam system to figure it out: They share the identical ideology!

Gobalisation? Both left and right oppose it with equal vehemence. Free movement of people so immigrants can take low skilled jobs in the UK? They both oppose it. Defence of the NHS? Both extremes love the NHS. And so it goes. The tribalism of the left is equalled by the tribalism of the right. Protectionism? They both love it. The mystical tribalism of left and right runs thru their ideology, whether it be race with the right or class and gender of the left -they are united in collectivism and statism.

The right loathe and detest when this is pointed out as they are hoping no one will notice and just vote on tribal lines for them.

The public deserve a choice between the statists of left, right and  centre and those few arguing for a limited state and the protection of individual rights against the  depredations of statism  from all its above mentioned incarnations.

From the furthest reaches of Outer Corbania...

Corbania  is a foreign country, they do things differently there. Retro 70's and 80 its the land that time forgot but you could experience time travel today at the Labour (Macht Frei) conference, where socialism in aspic has been preserved for all those who like to take collectivism neat, undiluted by time, reality, and the exigencies of policy.

Even in 1984 they only managed 5 minutes of hate, here it went on for over an hour. There was not a left wing cliche lifted out of the socialist handbook that was left unsaid, not a caricature or stereotype of the Conservatives that was not presented, this was 5th form stuff knockabout politics rancid and self parodying, Pavlovian and puerile, a 60 minute grudge-fest and virtue signalling orgy.

Fantasy politics that could become a  reality? Nitemare on Corbyn st coming to a town near you? Is there a known antidote? If all that stands between us and Corbyn in Downing st is the absurd figure of Theresa May who has managed to turn Brexit into a squalid abortion of betrayal and treachery then we all have cause to lie awake at night in fear and trembling. Just form an orderly queue at the Passport Office.

 

Into the Political Mystic

It has been observed that Corbyn attracts a cult like following among his young, State 'educated' base. A cult of non personality in his case clearly but there can be no denying the cultic aspects of the Corbyn trajectory where emotion has been the prime mover in what is an age of emotion where feelings have supplanted reason in the irrationality of groupthink.

As I have pointed out socialism has its roots in religion and mysticism so it is hardly surprising that its highpriest commands a god like following where the incantation of a few trigger words puts his audience into a mystic trance of reverence as if the mere utterance of key words will have the power to transform reality and make one and three.

The whole economic system can be turned on its head, the laws of cause and effect reversed, whim and caprice can govern human action, wishes can come true at the chanting of mantras and mindless empty slogans such as equality, fairness, people's democracy, people's vote, for the few not the many words take on magical properties, the power to emote can bring things into being and behind all the mysticism of course is the brute force of the state ready and more than willing, nay relishing the prospect of using all the coercive tools of the state to bully intimidate  impose such new realities on any reluctant heretics who may question the logic of the programme, raise objections, invoke such irksome things as freedom, liberty, individual rights, private property. These can be Gulaged as one Momenturm member suggested for reprogramming and the recanting anti social tendencies, of daring to question the Leader and challenge his supreme powers to mystically divine the will of the people and carry it out.

The happy clappy evangelism of the Labour conference, the glassy eyed adherents and the athomosphere of hysteria, cult of personality reverence mixed with anger rage directed towards the anti christ tories was a sinister spectacle and makes perfect sense once that connection between socialism and mysticism is made.

From human allegiance to God Almighty to State Almighty, from Church to State is hardly progress but merely a substitution of one tyranny for another. Only when Statecraft is rejected as comprehensively as priestcraft has now been will man properly be said to have escaped the dark night of the soul and recaptured his inalienable autonomy as a free thinking acting self interested individual with the state as his servant, protecting his rights rather than violating them in the name of some mystic altruistic common good which leads to slave camps, concentration camps and Gulags.

Statists: We are all in this together

Leading on from the previous post it then follows that the public should expect no principled assault and attack on Corbyn's red in tooth and claws 4 socialism whatsoever in the next few day at the tory conference. There will be no Tebbit type speech. Borris may bluster but it is a pretty good bet that the kind of principled onsalught on the socialism and collectivsm Corbyn and Mcdonnel propose to unleash  on the British public will be conspicuous by its absence.

How can any leader of any party attack an ideology that they themselves either implicitly or explicitly have been operating under as their lodestone since the get go?

I have never wished to be more wrong than on this one. I will do a large amount of penance if I am proven wrong. Characteristics are reliable as an old associate, window cleaner stroke philosopher used to say.

Who created the Corbyn Mcdonnel Frankenstein?

 Blair, Cameron, May. Soft socialism leads to hard socialism. Soft drugs are  a gateway drug to hard drugs. (I started out on Burgundy but soon it the harder stuff).

A little bit of cannibalism sir? Once you have killed and eaten one human being it's over, you have sold the pass. It's only a matter of time before you are a paid up member of the Cannibalst Society.

We are talking principles here. How about just robbing a bank just once, or raping just once?  Are you a Centrist bank robber, a Moderate bank robber, a middle of the road bank robber, a Liberal bank robber, a Conservative bank robber?

The Conservatives have always been Labour Lite. Macmillan launched a house building prog in the 50's. Maggie said the NHS is safe in  our hands. Welfare expanded exponentially throughout the post war years and Thatcher was the first to check it's growth but this was a blip and government carried on expanding and broadening its remit post Thatcher.

There was never any principled stand against Socialism, collectivism, statism. The slogan of the day pre Thatcher was  'we are all socialist now'.It was only Thatcher who used the term Socialism as a term of abuse. She would utter it contemptuously as if it were the ultimate character defect, akin to having a communicable disease one did not admit to in public.

Those days have long gone. All successive tory leaders have made their accomodation with socialism and this had led to the ultimate return of the real thing, the genuine article who has had the way paved or red carpetted for him by the above mentioned sell outs. He was just biding his time. Milliband as reference in a previous post unlocked the Labour door and let him in.Handing him the passkey he then disappeared into the anus of history.

Without a Shot being Fired?

You bet. Under democracy the people can vote themselves into slavery, a Marxist dictatorship -and in the 21st century! Like a bad smell socialism will not go away, collectivism will always appeal to mediocrities and losers and the present statist system breeds them a plenty. They can always be guaranteed to vote in a strong man to enslave them, history is replete with examples.

Only philosophy can save us. It is the only known antidote to totalitarianism but if the field has been co opted by tyrannical philosophers the well has been poisoned and only despotism will follow.

Most people thought collectivism died in 1989 but only it's structures were dismantled, the fundamental philosophy which animated and drove it was never challenged and exposed excepting in the writings of Ayn Rand who has been systematically demonized and ignored by academia with their vested interest in state patronage, sinecures and tenures in the State run institutions of learning.

Thankfully the internet will allow the dissemination of such radical and genuinely revolutionary ideas  which challenge the statist quo but they will undoubtedly  be met with fierce resistance by  institutions of the Establishment, from both left and right and centre, the churches, the media and academia.

Sisyphus himself would moan and groan under such a formidable and thankless task!


Red Dawn Meets Apocalypse Now

Into the rotten heart of Darkness with Comrade McDonnell as he sketched out his nitemare vision of a neo communist raid on the utilities, taking them back into public ownership in a blood curdling sinister speech full of menace and intimidation, a smiling sweet talking assassin warning business of the fate in store for it if he and his fellow Marxist henchmen slither their way to power over the strewn corpses of the tories courtesy of duplicitous Brussels and their own intellectual paralysis and loss of will.

The bbc Corbynist lickspittle Jon Penis was wetting his pants in relish as he drew a picture of the Marxist wasteland  Mcdonnel and co had in store for the British people which, he emphasized with near orgiastic pleasure would be 'irreversible' as rather than the old Stalinist communist model of top down nationalization it would be a more sinuous nuanced decentralized diffused localised bifurcated service owned by multiple parties,regionalised into a shared ownership which no future government would be able to unpick and return to the private sector.

The idea that one government could bind the hands of future governments is a totalitarian concept in itself but this was mere bluster and wishful thinking on Penis's part  for as Thatcher proved -socialist structures can be dismantled notwithstanding the amount of Byzantine complexities and  bureaucratic shared ownership models erected to frustrate and create a roadblock to capitalist solutions.

How to Challenge a 2000 Year old Ideology?

As the UK faces the biggest threat to its polity since 1939 with the dark  and menacing shadow of Marxism casting a sickly red pall over it the question could not be more timely. With both left and right wedded to the 2000 year ideology of altruism and sacrifice for the 'common good' just getting a hearing for a contrary view is a monumental challenge in itself.

Some people thought it is all over for socialism and collectivism. How wrong we were for I include myself in that number. How did we miscalculate so wildly? What assumptions were we applying that could make us misread the zeitegeist so completely?

The only consolation is that we are in very good company. Ayn Rand no less thought the obituary for old collectivism had already been written and in her collection essays on the New Left she referred to it in the past tense and while not lamenting its passing remarked that in comparison with the new incarnation it had the virtue of at least being coherent with some integrated philosophical base albeit the philosophy was anti individualist and thus inhuman.

Christopher Hitchens in the early noughties concluded that socialism was dead and there was no point arguing for a system when the train had left the station a long time ago -probably in 1989. Many other voices from the Left concurred and had already packed their bags and got on board the social democrat train, or took the bipass to Greenland to fight their leftist causes under a false flag yes but acknowledging in so doing how passe leftist ideology now was perceived in the latter part of the 20th century.

Fast forward a decade and a half and we have the grim prospect of history repeating itself as what -farce maybe but that is if we are lucky as the seeds of tragedy are contained within the Corbyn Mcdonnel Manifesto if it ever gets enacted.

Anyone under 30 should seriously consider emmigrating, not starting a family or a business  while the rest can only wait in fear and trembling and resort to hoping that enough people who lived thru the 70's will outvote the young with their militant ignorance of history and their lemming like allegiance to the Corbyn Cult which is shaping up as a reenactment of Maoism and a Cultural Revolution in all but name.

As for reversing the 2000 year ideology of altruism and its statist collectivist philosophy, bearing in mind this has barely begun one can be forgiven for thinking its a lost cause and it now only requires a modern Gibbon to chart and document the denoument of the Western liberal Enlightenment ideal.
