Marxist Scum On The March

Here we go again.1979 revisited.This is the scum Maggie was supposed to have routed but it was just tory folklore because the stake was not driven into the black and rotten heart of the union beast, it only had its wings clipped.None of the political parties will deal with the unions.It would take another party representing capitalism to do that.Expect more of the same as we death spiral over the cliff Greekwards.

As Berlusconi Is Bundled Out In EU Coup What Price Democracy?

There is no longer any pretence that the EU is democratic with the summary ousting of Berlusconi by EU commisars and his replacement with euphemistically termed 'technocrat' Monti as the BBC refers to him with drooling approval.This is a naked power grab more in keeping with third world banana republics and thugocracies.Imagine if the Spanish Socialist MP had been similarly ousted as his country goes into economic meltdown and the howls of outrage and gnashing of teeth this would elicit from the MSM BBC Guardianistas But.because it was the Left's bete noire Berlusconi is was met with relief approbation and dancing in the streets.The mask is now off and the Germans are now forth reich in their demands that UK falls in line with their master plan of complete EU German hegemony.

Tim Nice But Dim Mongomerrie Thinks Cameron Is The New Major

Major Major?He kept us in the EU, the quisling.He tinkered with welfare and Curried favours.Anyone who dared to stand on principle was a 'bastard'.Thatcher's verdict on him: "I thought he was one of us.I was wrong." At least no one could make that mistake with the human oil slick Tory Cameron with his Maoist localist tendencies and Big Society collectivism.(The above is what I posted to conhome but for some reason they have not carried it.)

An Interview With Myself

When does a mixed economy become a Socialist economy?About 50 years ago.

What do you think of Economic liberalism? I think it would be a very good idea.

Why don't Conhome allow half of your posts? Can't handle the truth.

Does Izlam pose an existential threat to Civilization? You bet it does.

When are you going to start your Capitalist movement? About 3 months ago.

Why is the Occupy Capitalism movement gathering momentum? Total lack of any concerted rebuttal of its patent absurdities and toxic anti freedom message.

What should be done about the BBC? It should be privatised,sold off of course preferably to Rupert Murdoch.Failing that - and no one hold their breath - there should be an organised non-payment of licence fee.

Are you an extremist? Yes.I beleive everyone should be extremely good extremely moral and extremely rational.Extremism is a measurement not a moral value.

Are people ready for unregulated laisez faire Capitalism? They better be. Freedom is not optional and cannot be put to the vote.Or you get Nazi Germany or Democracy which is mob rule by the ballot box.

Why are Conservatives so morally weak,spineless, confused, irrational and contradictory? Glad you asked! They are all those things and more because they have no moral base,no rational moorings, no guiding principles or values.They are whim worshippers,subjectivists, pragmatist,traditionalist,tribalist,religious with vague inconsistent leanings towards Capitalism.All of which is why they were not able to oppose the construction of the Welfare State,The EU and now the global anti Capitalist movement.If you are waiting for them to put up a moral defence of Capitalism take to the hills and find a nice cave.

Do people have a right to self defence? Do you have to ask?! Of course.The Brits even have a Bill of Rights which clearly allows the bearing of arms.

Is taxation moral? Hell no.It is the most evil imposition of force against a defencelss population in the whole of human history.It is worse than cannibalism.At least cannibals wait till you are dead before eating you.Taxation is the devouring of man's substance whilst he is still alive.It is so monstrously evil and obscene that no man has ever justified it or even attempted to but has merely served up stale bromides in its defence which a three year old child could see through yet whole nations have been cowed by in the absence of any moral consistent,coherent defence of liberty and freedom with the sole exception of Ayn Rand.

Why are Conservatives worshippers of tradition? Because they are tribalist.Collectivist in short.They believe in blood and race which makes them irrationalist and racist.They support rule by bloodline and birth ie monarchy,the divine right of kings, constitutional totalitarianism.Unless someone has been knighted and a sword placed on both shoulders he has no moral legitimacy to rule over his subjects,note subjects, not citizens.This is feudalism,mysticism, ancester worship,voodoo in ermine,ugly primitivism masquerading as civilization.

Is there any hope for the human race? Could go either way.At present trends are not looking good.There is an intellectual moral vacuum and tribalistic yahoos and collectivists are filling the breach.The voices of opposition and reason are crowded out and marginalised in the mainstream media.The blogosphere and modern media are the only hope that things can be turned around.But the yahoos appear to have co opted those as well by default as the rational are too quiescent and unorganised.

Harrison Mystical Materialist

Don't know what to make of the first half of the George Harrison Scorsece film last night.It was a bit of a muddle but I think that is his MO.Half the people who spoke I did not recognise because in order to distance himself from Run of the Mill documentarists Scor thinks it is a cachet not to include their names.The only thing I was thinking last night was that the genius of the Beatles was obviously Paul.In five minutes or less I had counted 20 classic ballad tracks of his but when I tried to count lennon's contribution I was struggling after identifying just three. It has now been confirmed that Paul was the driver and had he not rallied the troops a good third of their recordings would never have seen the light of day as Lennon was notoriously lazy.There has been so much hype and idolatory surrounding Lennon,about he was the Beatles but there is no hard evidence to back this up.He made a right tit of himself in 69 with his bed in peace nonsense,got lost in avant garde excrement with Loco Ono,flirted with Janov Primal Scream and then retreated into pseudo domestic bliss whilst Loco built up the Lennon empire.As for Harrison he got lost up his own mystical fundament and started to preach religious mumbo jumbo after being slipped some acid by his dentist.They all trooped off to Maharashi but soon took flight after his charlatanism became obvious to everyone but George who by this time was set on a path of blisful inanition.He wrote a handful of cracking songs not least the iconic Taxman and was genial enough but definitely the third Beatle and hardly deserving of 4 hours on BBC2.It turns out as a footnote that when a mad assailant broke into his mansion and stabbed Harrison just missing his vital organs by inches instead of repelling the would be assassin Harrison sat there and chanted Hari Krishna whilst his long suffering American wife Oliva beat the attacker over the head with a lampshade thus saving George from certain death.You couldn't make it uo.Give Peace a Chance what?!

This all begs the question what makes certain celebrities embrace mysticism when they appear to have the world at their feet.I think it is misplaced guilt.We live in a culture that says money making is evil and to assuage this unearned guilt they retreat into the unreality of mysticism and merge into an unfocused induced trance-like state where guilts and neurosis are purged in an amnesiacal haze brought on my chanting into a hypnoidal state which is how Harrison describes the process in the Scorsese film.Yes he was an arch defender of property rights and opponent of taxation per se but his irrational unease with wealth led him to the unreason of mysticism as a refuge.This is where all the hypocrisy comes in.We now have an extremely wealthy man living in a mansion that most quotes ordinary people could not even imagine in their wildest dreams preaching to the world the virtues on non materialsm.A few miles down the road John Lennon is sitting in his mansion at a grand piano or was it Steinway? singing a song to us with the lyrics,Imagine no possessions.Clearly none of them did irony.The hangers on were too timid and self interested to point out the glaring contradictions.Both Beatles now literally had everything: their spiritual/materialist cake and could eat it too.

This brazen hypcocrisy is now common.The two Beatles were merely the trail blazers in it.Now we have to listen to lectures by millionaire rock stars on an almost daily basis on the the evils of capitalism. Must it not be intensely irritating to people who struggle to make ends meet to have to listen to the likes of George Harrison in his mansion telling themthat money is not important?It is also the height of irresponsibility as many impressionable people possible tens of thousands who knows? dropped out of the material world altotgether but unlkike Harrison did not have a mansion to retreat into and ended up destitute on drugs and then dead.Some legacy George.


Lest We Forget And Get A Life

Trying to forget it is Rememberance Sunday.Not very difficult really is it?! It is so vacuous an affair, so insubstantial it is a bit like railing against thin air.Basically it is an excuse for perpetuation of monarchy, empty pomp and non circumstance and a terrible criminal waste of tax payers money.It is a display of fraudulent pseudo patriotism, an obscene pantomime of empty gravitas played out against the total capitulation to our slave masters across the channel,our liberties sold on the instalment plan to Brussels.This betrayal of our birthright on such a massive scale is a cause of shame but this sham sorrow and ersatz sentiment is an added insult to our national shame.British soldiers died for nothing.We are slaves of the Germans and French.Hitler won. End of.

Render Unto Caesar What Is Seizers

As someone has just helpfully pointed out to me the history of taxation is a long one indeed.I do not pretend to be a student of that.I seem to remember reference to ancient Egypt in that regard.One thing I do know is that Jesus Christ appeared in the Bible to give his tacit consent to the principle of taxation when he said to an enquirer into the proper role of the State: "render unto Caesar what is Caesar's.Someone else also told me that in the Mormon church it was said that people should obey their State masters if they are honourable men.There is more evidence amongst the big religions of an anti capitalist,individualist bias.I think the Socialists can rightly claim religion as being on their side.There is some evidence that contradicts this trend however re the quote: 'you do not see the righteous begging for bread'.The good samaritan is able to help because he has money but altruism seems to be advocated here.The story of the talents may also be construed as a defence of Capitalism and investment so the picture is not unequivocal. The point is however that just because taxation stretches back into the mists of time and even Jesus Christ seemed to accept it morally does not mean it is moral or good.As well say human sacrifices go back thousands of years ergo they must be good.The argument from tradition is fallacious.If it were not one would have to accept cannibalsim as a moral system since it stretches back a long way.

Why We Desperately Need A Capitalist Party

On Con home recently someone posted a piece about the need for a moral defence of Capitalism.All well and good but the writing in question completely failed to propose any coherent strategy to that end.It is futile in my opinion to expect the Conservatives to mount such a defence.They lack the philosophical consistency and rigour to do it.They pride themselves on their anti intellectualism and pragmatism.This is why over generations they have betrayed the cause of freedom and compromised with collectivist premises and policies all the way down the line from the construction of the Welfare State to the UK membership of the EU.Their tacit if not overt support of a 'constitutional' Monarchy is yet another indication of how they are not equipped to defend liberty and have no moral ground upon which to do it.Waiting for Conservatives to secure our liberty agsainst a predaTory illiberal State will be a truly Becketian excercise of delusional and groundless wishful thinking escalating to Dizzying levels of Kafkaesque futility.

Who Will Defend Liberty?

It is not fair to expect producers and business people to be on the frontline in defending the right to keep the fruits of their labour for this reason.Producers and businessmen spend all their time pursuing their goals and objectives and do not necessarily have the tools and knowledge to argue philosophically against the State's predatory and illegitimate claims on their productive labour through taxation.Just because someone is a very sucessful businessman does not mean he or she will be able or willing to articulate a coherent defence of property rights from an anti taxation position.That takes an acquisition of knowledge and great familiarity with the arguments against egalitarianism and this is not something necessarily the business world is cognizant of, familiar with or equipped to articulate.Businessmen are not ipso facto qualified to give an intellectual defence of freedom.That is the job for intellectuals and activists,writers,bloggers,indeed anyone who is prepared to enter the fray and campaign for liberty.It would be nice if they were as their contribution to the battle would have extra ballast and weight simply because they would be speaking from a position of direct knowledge and experience of the productive wealth acquisition principle but we cannot expect them to be experts in the defence thereof.The greatest defenders of liberty have been profesional writers and thinkers, not entrepreneurs.This is because writing is a profession in itself and a comletely different discipline from trade and business and an ability in one does not necessarily imply and ability in the other.The downside of this reality is that such intellectual defenders of liberty can be dismissed as mere armchair theorists and ivory tower intellectuals although the Left are quite happy to quote verse and chapter from the quitessential armchair theorist Marx who apparently never set foot inside a factory and spent most of his life in the British library! In his defence at least the latter did not rely on State handouts but instead the patient financial assistance of Engels albeit with rich irony with money sourced from the Capitalist system he sought to destroy, but I digress.

None of the above however is to excuse the craven capitulation of the business class to the anti capitalist sentiment abroad,the grovelling apologetic defence of Capitalism,the half hearted support of it, the damning it with faint praise, the obscene defence of it on altruistic grounds of all things.If business men cannot defend Capitalism properly they would do better to say nothing at all.

Until I understood the above regarding defence of Capitalism as a job for profesional writers and thinkers etc I was prone to get very annoyed with the so-called business community but I think I maligned them albeit unwittingly here.The one group of people I will not forgive however and who deserve the greates obloquoy is the so- called defenders of Capitalism ie the Conservatives.They have done more to betray our liberty and freedom in the last 200 years than any other group including the Socialists and the Labour Party.Their crime is unforgiveable because it is their job for which are paid out of the public purse to defend our freedoms and they have done more to destroy them as I say than any other group, political orgnisation and movement throughout history.Why do I say this? Well everyone knows the Socialists hate freedom and liberty and Capitalism and they only pretend to favour it if pushed but the Conservatives are supposed to be the defenders of Capitalism and their betrayal of it is so complete,absolute,comprehensive and total that no one could possibly claim that it is accidental or caused by some misunderstandng of the principles of Capitalism.It is deliberate and intentional.No mistake over such a wide span of generations and time could possibly be accidental.They know exactly what they are doing.It is systematic and conscious.To vote for them after such knowledge is to participate in one's own destruction and is an act of self immolation.

Here to interject a small but not insignificant point.I do not seek to decry intellectuals but only to point out that at least inthe UK there is a deep seated distrust of them particularly from the Right. The writer Anthony Burgess used to decry British mistrust of intellectuals and I know it has a long history but more recent times and events have given it momentum and a patina of justification.Conservatives sometimes appear militantly anti intellectual and I think this is because of recent history re intellectuals and how it lead to the bloodbaths of the 20th century via Communism and Socialism and Fascism which of course are all variants of collectivism as much as the Left seeks to distance itself from Fascism and purports to be its greatest enemy.Hitler lest anyone needs reminding called his party National Socialist.How the Left resent this being pointed out to them which is the very reason why it should be,regularly!So because of this lamentable record of intellectuals siding with totalitarian concepts the Right Conservatives wrongly concluded that they should abandon the field of intellectualism entirely which has only led to the Left by default, holding complete hegemony over it in all our institutions of learning and media.But the point is this,intellectual promulgation of ideas is work,productive activity if it takes the form of books written and sold,dvd broadcast and diseminated etc.Intellectual property is as valid as any other and should not be decried or apoloogised for.It is the food and ammuniton for the public and as such is essential.

So to conclude who should we go to for an unbreached intellectual philosophical comprehensive defence of liberty and Capitalism? There is only one writer I could in all honesty recommend and that is Ayn Rand.I am very familiar with her writings but would not in any way pretend to be in the same stratosphere as her in any way shape or form and and consider myself as nothing more than a pedestrian student of her work.There may be other defenders but I have never come across them.Ludvig von mises has given a partial defence of Capitalism.Frederik Basiat is a brilliant essayist and satirist of collectivist thinking but for a complete,closed universalist philosophical system comprehensively supported by rational argument no one has come close to Ayn Rand.It is to her writings alone I would direct any students of Capitalism.Even if afterwards people choose to dismiss her arguments they cannot really argue agsinst Capitalism without first familiarising themselves with its most brilliant and uncompromising defender.( please forgive appalling grammatical and spelling errors,they will be corrected in due course, or at least those I identify!)

Freedom - If You Want It

The 19th century writer Henry David Thoreau went to jail for not paying his taxes and wrote an essay about it entitled On Civil Disobedience.I hold no brief for him from a philosophical standpoint as his writing spawned the environmentalist movement of the 20 and 21st century but he is an interesting though sadly rare example of someone who understood the essential tyranny of taxation and the implicit violation of liberty it entails.Precious few others have taken a stand.Indirectly we have to come up to the present day almost with Ken Dodd who simply did not file his tax returns but he did not explicity consciously stand on principle in so doing although his comments suggested that he understood the prevailing evil of the system when he remarked that he kept his money around his house because he thought society was going to collapse in the 70s and he needed to take precautions against such a calamitious eventuality. He was spared jail only because he was practically universally loved as a national treasure and comic genius adding immeasurably to the joy of nations and the tyranical State dared not risk the wrath of the people by incarcerating him and therby possibly precipitating a mass revolt against such a tyranical tax system.Lester Pigott on the other hand being a less sympathetic character faced the full rigor of the law's wrath and was promptly jailed for similar act of 'tax evasion'.The State is sinuous and serpentine in its carefully selective deprivations of people's liberty.Other than that no other high profile case springs to mind although Phillip Green's heroic avoidance of tax has to be commended alongside Vodafone's.To be fair however, there are perhaps many more such fine examples except that I do not have further details myself.

Next time I will discuss how such abovementioned examples could be utilised into a more general and systematic mass resistance programme against the bully looter State.

Reflections On The Capitalist Revolution

Without wanting to be a Pain or a Burk it has to be said, a strong coffee does spur the Capitalist revolutionary impulse.All things become possible for the duration.Not that I am a hot head.I understand the Marxist thing about the long march through the institutions.But last night I was a thinking.If someone is mugging you and demanding your worldy goods (not that there are any other sort I might add) do your really have to launch into a philosophical discussion with him about the evil of plunder and the instigation of force against another to apropriate his or her wealth,or do you just hit him over the head with a blunt instrument? This is where I depart some what from the Randian Objectivists.I ask them, if the State is mugging you every day and looting your property do we really have to engage in a generation long philosophical re education programme to convince everyone that looting whether it be done by individuals or the State against others is immoral and evil,or do we just resist the State in a massive civil 'disobedience' non-compliance campaign? Seems a no-brainer to me.Of course where we depart is only regarding the means to achieving freedom, not the end ie freedom itself.

In Remembrance Of What Exactly?

We are invited today to observe two minutes silence for Armitice or something,I only vaguely know what.Millions died in the First World War and I still can't figure out why or what for.In the Second World War we defeated German Socialism and embraced British Socialism.Then we surrendered to the Germans and French by joining the EU.What did all thoise people die for - the EU? Does putting a poppy on our lapels and not speaking for two minutes make up for this genocide which was all for nothing? If there are martians on other planets looking down on us maybe there is an explanation as to why they have never deigned to land on planet earth :too much insanity.

Phoney Blair.An Epic Journey In Tedium

I bought the box set of Blair autobiography with high expectations. Five minutes into the 13 cd yet abridged My Journey I was exhausted and fatigued with the cliche bound pedestrian tedium of his shallow substanceless triteness.How on earth was anyone ever taken in by this phoney? I am going to grit my teeth and try again.I must solve this conundrum.Watch this space...

Conspiracy Afoot

With the liberation of the media to free market competition via internet and cable satelite has come the phenomenon of chanels devoted entirely and exlusively to conspiracy theories.Now to the undiscerning the power of the conspiracy theory is very seductive.It holds out the alluring prospect of revealing the secrets of the universe, giving power to the powerless and providing an explanation of everything in a neat hermetically sealed closed system of knowledge.It empowers the disenfranchised and marginalised with a intoxicating feeling of righteous indignation,self validation and serves up a rationalisation of their anger at the deal they have been given by uncaring impersonal cruel world.It tends to attract those on the margins of society who hold a grudge against the system which in their minds has left them out in the cold and has not recognised their trute worth and consigned them to subsistence on a low wage menial existence where their inherent virtues have been ignored and not recognised.

The spiritual has been sidelined for crude materialism,so the narrative continues,and New Age here steps into the breach with its alternative medicine and philosophy which is another strand of the Conspiracy theorists which I will not go into now sufficing at this point to allude to it as another strand in the rich and variegated tapestry of conspiracy theorists.The multifarious conspiracies be they wildy contradictory and divergent share a common denominator namely the existence of a sinister cabal of elitists in their hideaways plotting and planning the global takekover and enslavement of the masses in a dark conspiracy to rob the people of their birthright and liberty. A bewildering cascade and melange of disconnected arbitrary facts and figures are put to service to illustrate the fiendish plots of these putative Masters of the Universe and no scenario however preposterous is excluded from the dogs dinner of conspiracies be it 9\11,Apollo landings ('supposed'!) ad nauseam.Of course a degree of plausibilty is required to make the conspiracy theory medicine go down so interpolated with the more wild and outlandish crackerbarrel UFO storiies and elaborate concoctions there is a smattering and verisimiltude of truth,eg,the idea that the push to a One World order either through the EU or UN has a genuine internal logic to it.There are those be they Al Gore with his climate change propaganda (which the Conspiracy theorists funnily enough oppose) who do want to enslave us with their Big Government solutions.Herin lies the bait for the unwary for by inserting some truths into their narrative the conspiracy theorists manage to ensnare some genuinely enquiring minds into embracing the theories lock stock and barrel and we end up with the absurd scenario described to me by a friend who when challenging the ridiculous theories embraced by an associate was met with the asinine retort:'why wouldn't David Icke be telling the truth'? (As well go into a lunatic asylum and attempt to convince the inmates that they are not really Napoleon!)And here we come to the issue of what happens when the conspiracy theorisits are challenged.They invariable become defensive and abusive to their detractors.We have been brainwashed by the media,we are too stupid to see what is going on, television has robbed us of our critical faculties, we are not part of the elite initiated who know what is going on,we are basically dupes of 'the system'.It becomes clear that one is confronting the belief system that is every bit as immune to logic and reason as the most primitive hysterical hidebound religious zealot and bigot.Unbeleivers are treated to an admixture of ad hominem abuse pity and contempt in equal measure.

There is a political and ideological base to the conspiracy theorists agendas that becomes discernible fairly early on into any examination of their programmes and broadcasts albeit allowing for some notable and exceptions to the general rule but these are by their very nature unrepresentative and marginal and so can be dismissed as they go against the general trend which can only be categorised as pro Left and anti Capitalist.(A good - or bad example of this is Max Keiser on RT although I am really intending to concentrate predominantly here on TV chanels such as Edge Media and PSTV so will perhaps return to Keiser later on).to be cont

Who Are The real Tory EU Traitors?

Eurosceptics are to blame for providing cover for the mad europhiles who run the Conservative party.The skeptics perform the good cop to the philes bad cop and Conservative voters fall for it every time.Tory voters should direct their ire towards the Redwood and Cash cadres for allowing the party to get away with the scam for so long.They furnished it with a moral sanction and as such are ultimately morally responsible for leading us along the primrose path to destruction.Without the figleaf of skeptism provided by the Redwoods the tory EU scam would have been exposed a long time ago.

Religion and the Left: Ugly Bedfellows

The St Paul debacle shows as I have said previously how religion and its secular equivalent Collectivism share the common philosophical roots of altruism.The Left and the Church are in ideological lockstep and the absurdist theatre they have indulged in in the last few weeks illustrates this.The BBC has treated this incident from the start as occupiers good,Church bad but in reality they are both on the same side of evil.No one has pointed out that the occupiers are immoral scumbags using force aggression and intimidation to trespass on church property notwithstnding the Church's appeasement and craven capitulation to their tyranical bullying antics.This occupation is standard Leftist intimidation behaviour but it is presented by the BBC as highly moral and principled.In the morally inverted world of the BBC evil is the highest good and is to be defended and championed in a brazen disregard for truth and objective reporting.Using force to occupy property that does not belong to them the only recourse possible and the moral imperative is for the occupiers to be removed by force.Because the Church loves to appease evil this it will not do hence its moral depravity and ethical delinquency.It stands condemned as an evil institution beyond all hope,cast adrift in a moral inverted universe where good is bad and bad is good.It hypocriticaly has economic ties with the City but then decries the very institution by which it is able to flourish.The Church is a corrupt morally bankrupt institution and as such is the perfect location for the evil Leftist rabble who have gathered on its purlieus.They truly do deserve one another.A plague on both their rotten houses.
