The Thatcher Frit

Recently opened government papers under the 30 year rule have revealed that the Margaret Thatcher revolution came to a juddering halt at the gates of State education and one paper dealing with possible privatisation or radical reform of the state system was marked in favour of maintaining the nationlisation of education.

This may have been the greatest failure of her rule as if real change is to be effected in a country's culture it begins with education and as a result of her unwillingness to confront the issue more generations have been blighted by the bankruptcy of the state education system which should have been completely opened up to the market to bring innovation  and academic rigour into the schools and to smash the union ideological hegemony in the classroom with the catastrophic results that have accrued.

We see the same hesitancy and loss of will over the NHS which Thatcher avowed was 'safe in her hands' and the disasters which that failure have brought in their train to know that the much famed radicalism of Thatcher had its severe limitations and that her tenure was more often characterised by caution than is generally appreciated.

The Black Racism of Lenny Henry

There is something redundant about inviting left wing personalities to guest produce the radio Four Today programme as it is clearly produced by such types the year round but anyway Lenny Henry went the whole hog and insisted that all the journalists on his watch today would be, as it is preciously put 'of colour'.

The programme was a predictable ghoulash of political correctness.But here is the thing.What the positive discrimination arguers like him fail to recognise is that hiring someone because of the colour of their skin is just as racist as Not hiring someone because of the colour of their skin.Such black racism is actually worse than the common garden racism because it is perpetrated by the victims of racism themselves - an almighty own goal of epic proportions.At a stroke the moral high ground is abandoned and the ugly face of racism and its roots in collectivism is exposed and one injustice is substituted for an another.

Martin Luther King's invocation to judge people not by the colour of their skin but the content of their character is forgotten and the ugly face of black racism is enthroned in its place.It is to be hoped that most people will reject the backward black quota ideas of Lenny Henry for the vile irrational immoral racist policies that they are.Shame on the BBC for sinking to new lows.

Liberty and its false defenders

Watching a  a speech David Davies gave on the history of British liberty I was struck by his omissions and his conflation of liberty with democracy.This is really one to watch as it is common and cannot possibly be accidental as it is so patently erroneous.

A system where a man can vote to have his neighbour's property and income purloined through taxation is one where liberty has long fled and yet repeatedly the liberty /democracy conflation is articulated in the correct assumption that this package deal will go undetected so embedded through repetition are the democracy worshiping incantations, inducing in the listener   the effect of near hypnotic subliminal programming.

Mr Davies completely omitted from his near hour long discourse any mention of taxation - in a speech on liberty!God, or someone defend us from false defenders of liberty such as he.

The Living =Dying Wage

The fantasyland inhabited by the Living Wage protaganists is brought into sharp relief with economic reality this week as the package firm City Link announced it is closing down and the unions are predictably seeking government bailout of the beleaguered firm.The idiotic Vince Cable has been appealed to and asked to intervene but as his grasp of economics and business is practically zero there will be no  enlightenment from that quarter.

The cold hard facts are these,namely that companies are weighed down by taxes and regulation and the result is not a living wage or even a minimum wage no but no wage at all.The unions will continue to huff and puff and no doubt Mr Cable will make all the sympathetic noises and stand on his hind legs and bemoan the capitalist system but it is his statist policies which have driven City link and many others to the wall.1970's style state intervention in the economy via wage fixing and government second guessing the economy was a bad bad failed policy then and it is being replicated now and the only solution is free market capitalism with no government intervention in the economy which alone will give companies like City Link a fighting chance. (But no one hold their breath of course).

Islam the cult of death

A religion founded on a plagiarism of a plagiarism of a plagiarism,that urges its members to kill others of the same religion but who follow a variant therof,blows up mosques,beheads people,rapes and pillages across the world and whose founder was an epileptic shepherd who slept with an 8 year old girl,Islam the cult of death deserves no respect and deserves only contempt but is treated sympathetically  by the very people who claim to be fighting a war against terrorism.It would take our freedom away with mass surveillance whilst tolerating in its midst those who would seek to destroy us.The war on terror is a lie and Islam the cancer that seeks to devour us all is allowed to flourish unchecked.2015 and the age of barbarism is upon us.

Socialism and its true intent

When people are prepared to sacrifice liberty for security they end up with neither.This much repeated quote reminds me of a letter Churchill's daughter sent him in response to his attack on socialism as referenced in my last post.She argued that as state control had been so effective in winning the war against Hitler why should it not be mobilised to win the peace and bring social security to the British people?

 I do not know what his response was if any to this but for my part I would say that when socialists draw a picture of what they would like to do for people in their interests it always sounds benign and innocuous as it is couched in such terms but this conceals to the untutored the means by which such a 'fair' and equitable state of affairs will be achieved,namely through state coercion,erosion of liberty, the trampling of individual  rights and a mass leveling down by which the most competent and able are  reduced to the same level of helplessness via state incursion on their freedoms as that of the most helpless individuals in society.

So to say that  Miss Churchill's comments were  disengenuous about the intentions of the socialists is too generous and that what the left do in general is seek to conceal their totalitarian impulses under a sugar coating of bromide euphemism and baby talk.

Churchill's Warning

In 1945 after  leading the victory against German socialism Churchill warned the British people of the dangers of English socialism via a general election win by the Labour party but they were drunk on victory and brushed aside his prophetic warnings.Chiefly he asserted that socialism was totalitarian in nature and that a socialist win would necessitate a stripping away of much fought for liberties going back centuries and that a police state eg a gestapo. would be required to maintain it.

He was scorned and Labour, led by the appropriately Lenin lookalike  Clem Atlee won a landslide victory and proceeded to nationalise all privately run businesses:energy,coal mines,health service etc.The State grew alarmingly and exponentially bigger than any time in Britsh history,taxes rose and liberty became a long distant memory.Gulled by a hideously distorted romantic view of Soviet Russia the Britsh people slowly but surely became socialised subjects,supplicants of a burgeonining state efectively selling their souls for a pair of nation health spectacles.

By the time people realised the horrors and truth of the Soviet system they were hoplessly ensnared in a socialist web of their own weaving and it was impossible to extricate themselves.Soviet invasion was not required for the British people had done it to themselves.

A Christmas wish

May the British people finally wake up to the absurdity of having a monarchy in the 21st century and divest themselves of this parasitic institution with its hangers on and  cease its fawning over this degenerate dysfunctional family with its entitlement welfare mentality.Selling off its possession and property bought with blood and tears and plunder over the centuries would pay off 7 billion of the national debt and free the country of its oppressive history and its forelock tugging obesiance to tyranny which the monarchy  is a symbol of today albeit in its delimited  form today. The mad would be king Charles with his eco obsessions and pro muslim sentiments has spent most of his adult life meddling in British politics and must not be allowed to assume the throne so it is essential for the monarchy to be dissolved before this happens.

Religion and its philosophical base

If a religious leader makes a speech on world affairs pretty much without exception its contents can be predicted as they follow a familiar trajectory unchanged for centuries and will contain certain elements varying only in minor deviations and detail as befits the events of the day.The unerring message will be that the problems of the world can only be addressed by unselfishness,self sacrifice,charity,love and that, translated into politics, this will entail:collectivism,socialism,redistribution of wealth,repudiation of profit, and all of this will be interlarded with an assault on private enterprise,attacks on individualism,materialism and the intellect.This was pretty much the message that the pope delivered in the EU parliament recently and needless to say it was met with rapturous applause.This phenomenon described can be the cause of only two things.Either this is a misrepresentation of the true message of Christianity on the part of the pope and this seems unlikely as he is a learned man or the very essence and philosophy of christianity is pure unadulterated evil.Assuming it is the latter then we need to examine what is at the heart of this philosophy which is common it must be said across all the main religions and probably all the other lesser known religions as well.The essence or base of this philosophy is of course altruism -the idea that humans beings exist not for their own hapiness and fulfillment but for that of  others who they must sacrifice  to and this and this alone is the only purpose to their life.And the only possible political translation of this philosophy is collectivism,the common good for whom individuals are to be sacrificed.All goverments justify their social programmes by the altruist code of self sacrifice invoking its religious roots and it is the prevailing ideology of the age and indeed most past ages.This is the moral evil that has to be confronted and it can only be done on philosophical grounds as this is the battle ground the collectivist have chosen to wage their war for centuries on man and the individualism that stands in their way to complete tyranny.

Statism versus the non- coercive State

When discussing the evils of statism with folk the standard response is 'so you are an anarchist then?' as if the only solution to an over bearing state were no state at all.The majority of such respondents say this out of genuine confusion but others deploy such an argument as a smear to deter people from exploring alternatives to statism.The answer to statism is a limited state,a capitalist system under the rule of objective law and moreover - and this is the essential element of the dynamic - a state funded by voluntary contribution,voluntary taxation if you will, thus removing the coercive element of taxation which is theft by the state.The state is not a necessary evil but a necessary good.Unlike most libertarians and anarchists the state is not viewed with hostility as something to be abolished but as the essential safeguard of freedom liberty and the rule of law within a capitalist system.The state has a monopoly of force and without it the anarchy witnessed in some african states and parts of the middle east would prevail.Imagine rival police forces and militias and rival legal systems fighting it out on the streets and you begin to see the anarchy and mayhem that would result from competing legal and police forces.

Torture. So What

The liberal's much ventilated and public angst over the torture by western governments of suspected islamic terrorists speaks not to their virtue but their moral decadence.In war the objective is to win as expeditiously as possible in the shortest amount of time with the least number of casualties to one's own side by whatever means available including torture.The notion of applying queensberry rules to Isis is beyond the absurd.The goal should be to terrorise the terrorists.Even friends trot out the argument that to use the same methods as the enemy is to be no better than the enemy but even a cursory examination of this argument is to expose its fallacious not to say immoral nature.It is immoral because it covertly and sinuously seeks to obliterate the moral distinction between the perpetrator of violence and the victim.By the very act of daring to retaliate against the perpetrator the victim condemns himself to moral equivalence with the perpetrator.One only has to ask who benefits from such a rationalisation to see the evil of it.If by the very act of retaliating against an agressor the victim is rendered   automatically immoral the only outcome is paralysis of the victim and the triumph of the criminal.Hence the moral evil and depravity of the liberal argument that to fight the terrorists with their own weapons is to be no better than the terrorists.The only possible outcome can be victory of the terrorists and the end of freedom which is what we can observe on the world stage today.

Democracy and its sollution

Democracy is illiberal ergo it cannot be ended via the democratic process.If as it clearly does democracy violates principles of liberty freedom and individual rights its continuation or otherwise cannot logically be subjected to a vote.As individual rights are inviolable and flow from the very reality of the requirement of human existence then they cannot possibly be subject to the whim of  majority decision.You cannot vote to enslave your fellow man and even if 99 people out of a hundred wish to violate the rights of the hundredth this they cannot do.So if democracy is to be ended it will not and cannot be done via the ballot box.This does not mean violence will be inevitable but neither does it exclude its possibility.It is for those who think individual rights liberty and freedom can be extinguished from human affairs via the democratic will to justify their position,not those who reject such a  monstrous proposition.

Life on Marrs

Watching a re run of the history of modern Britain with Andrew Marr recently I was struck and amused by his absurd leftist bias when covering the birth of that socialist monstrosity the NHS.Barely could he contain himself as he drooled over this great achievement of civilization, totally ignoring the erosion of individual liberty it involved;the desired end of 'free' healthcare totally justified the illiberal means to get there,ho hum.To the left human beings are not individuals at all but mere ciphers,a collectivist blob to be fashioned and shaped,to be pushed here and there to achieve the egalitarian utopia of fairness and equality for all.The fairness of course turns out to be unfairness and the equality the equality of slavery.

The left and its strange sympathies

Watching George Galloway interviewing the daughter of Che Guevara on the Soviet TV chanel RT,  drooling and   almost wetting himself in the presence at one remove of such a hero of the Left it makes me wonder why the left romanticises totalitarianism and hero worships an obvious thug hoodlum and criminal like Che Guevara.Perhaps its the same reason why some people romanticise the mafia - the Godfather syndrome.Whilst the left would recoil in horror at the totalitarian Right they seem to develop myopia when it is their side doing the tyranny.The end justifies the means I suppose.If individual rights,liberty and freedom have to be sacrificed to create their leftist vision of 'fairness' then so be it.When such contempt for liberty and disregard for individual rights prevails it is hardly surprising that the result is a charnel house of death and destruction on an industrial scale.There is very little difference between the martyrisation and deification of Che and that of the the Jihadi sucide bombers and Isil whose militant Islamism is not so different from  Marxism in its colletivist dystopic vision..

Immigration and the debate we never have

One thing never heard in any debate on what we should do about mass immigration is the argument that we cannot have mass immigration because how will Tesco,Asda,Lidl,Pound shop cope with the demands of all those people coming into the country.No,we only hear the argument how can the NHS,our schools our transport,social services and all the state infrastructure cope with all the demands made upon it by the immigrants. The solution then is staring us in the face.Let all those services be run on capitalist principles,then there would be no shortages,no waiting lists.But of course we are wedded to a discredited 19th century ideology of socialism,so we end up vexing about how many people can come into the country ,in other words approaching the argument entirely from the wrong end .Open borders under capitalism are no problem but it is impossible when people are dependent upon inefficient corrupt state public services characterised by incompetence,protectionism,lack of innovation,  and stagnation.Capitalism is the answer to immigration,socialism is the problem.

Democracy's dirty big secret

What an ingenious thing democracy is! It enables you to steal from your neighbour  using the state as a proxy thief- via taxation but it also enables your  neighbour to steal from you! So everyone ends up the same except of course in the act of larceny everyone is morally depraved.No one has any power or autonomy,it has been taken by the state hence the inability of anyone to change the system that has us locked into mendacity with no hope of change unless the whole system of democracy is rejected and a system based on individual rights ie capitalism replaces it. Only an outright rejection of the kleptocratic model of democracy will secure liberty for the people.It has been rightly said that democracy gives each man the right to be his own dictator but the only thing this can result in is tyranny for all as anything you do to your neighbour they can do to you.Remove coercion from human affairs,let people come together through voluntary association to trade,take the state's power away to steal through taxation and society will flourish,wealth and innovation and entrepreneurialism will flow and people will get back their s liberty so craftily and artfully stolen from them.

The ridiculous slab monument of stonehenge the product of slave labour no doubt and sublime in its senselessnes and epic Sisisiphean  futility is a fitting monument to the sensless economics of the coalition as it seeks to build its way out of bankruptcy by piling up yet more debt for the slaves of the future to pay off in perpetuity.People come from all round the world to gawp at these monuments of nothingness,as vacuous as the operations of our present day neolithic politicians in their deluded arrogance and myopia.
