Blowhard President

He is deffo schizoid,bipolar,unhinged,unstable,demented,fascistic - and the North Korean leader is not much better! The whole world knows the USA is a paper tiger that cannot win wars and has not done so since WW2 and so the present intemperate bluster of Trump's is fooling nobody except perhaps himself.

So we are in a parlous state with two psycho regimes that need to be taken down namely NKorea and Iran and no chance whatsoever that will happen. I am wondeingr what Trump has got to do or fail to do before his supporters finally admit they were wrong in backing him. Right now it seems he has a free pass for life.

Privatisation of Political Parties

Forcing citizens to finance any political party whose philosophy and ideology is perceived by them to be antithetical and inimical to their deeply held values and philosophy is tyrannical. It has created a tax funded duopoly of Conservative and Labour and it violates the principle of free speech and the right of the citizen  not to have to finance the promotion and promulgation of ideas that potentially or directly threaten their individual rights and liberties.

For this reason all political parties should receive no tax funded contributions and each individual citizen should financially support the respective political party that most represents their views and ideology and there should be no monetary cap on how much they donate as at present. The latter notion is pure egalitarianism implicitly saying that every party should receive the same financial amount and no one should be able to give more than anyone else which is a gross violation of free speech.

Are EU Having a Laugh?

You can take Britain out of the EU but you cannot take the EU out of Britain -  not at least if you transfer the thousands of burdensome Kafkaesque EU laws into British law and call it a Repeal Bill which is precisely what the government is proceeding to do today. Can Britain be said to have left the EU at all if it places every jot and tittle of EU law onto its statute books? Only in a pigs eye.

The argument for doing this insane thing is as weak as it is specious -namely that not to transfer all the thousands of EU laws into British law would create a 'legal black hole'.I have yet to hear an explanation of what this means. That an absence of  laws that cripple business and give employees faux rights will cast everyone into a black hole? Maybe it will cast lawyers into a black hole? That is almost an argument for it in itself.

No, the only explanation why the British State wishes to visit the thousands of EU laws on the UK is because it shares the same statist agendas as the EU and intends to emulate it  in an en bloc cut and paste adoption of its non objective statist laws.

Bonfire of the Regulatory State

As I have pointed out previously State regulation of business trade and industry is defacto nationalization of them in a creeping underhand implicit unstated form. When the State is not strangling business in mountains of regulation it is launching expensive tax funded governmental research from 'independent' personages - witness the report on Uber's business model from the Blairite Leftist Matthew Taylor -  with the express and sole purpose of using such 'expert' advice to initiate yet more anti business legislation in this case forcing Uber to pay the same onerous benefits to their employees as traditional employers, effectively destroying the whole gig economy in the process.

On top of this invasive creeping nationalisation of the whole economy the State plunders the so called private sector with punitive fines for poor services,trains running late etc. This is another gross violation of property rights and is further reason why the State should have no role in policing or regulating business trade and industry. The State should no more be able to fine rail companies for running a poor service than they should be able to fine the local newsagent for failing to provide sufficient amounts of newspapers or oranges to their customers.

Free Housing

The takeaway from Grenfell is the imperative to privatise all social housing. The Sovietisation of housing created the tragedy and the State should not be in the housing business. Its only business is to protect  its citizens from harm done to them via force or fraud. It should therfor provide police, the courts and armed forces and these should be paid for by voluntary taxation.Every other service should be delivered via the free market unregulated and un taxed by the State.

Public Sector Menace

The plague of public sector militancy has never been properly addressed and now that it is dealing with a weakened vulnerable minority Conservative party it is flexing its muscles and making more  unreasonable pay rise demands. A weakened compromised government is about to cave in to such demands when what it should be doing is quite the opposite.

Public sector unions should be banned as their wage demands can bankrupt the country and they can hold it to ransom with threats of strikes which because their jobs are in a State monopoly it is difficult to resist.

The Austerity Delusion

The age of austerity is dead. Mr Government Creosote is going to deny himself a wafer-thin mint! The money printing press is going to crank up the works and produce yet more magic money to spend on our bloated public services (that word public again).

If the country were an individual it would have been made bankrupt a long time ago but even with national debt 86% of Gdp we've got to bring austerity to an end.

Until we go to a system of private free banking,abolish the Bank of England and have a separation of finance and State the latter will continue printing  money and the Ponzi scheme of public spending will roll on.

Murdoch Murder( No) Mystery

The mooted Cma  investigation into whether Rupert Murdoch should be allowed to own all off his own company (!) Sky by buying up the remaining shares   is a direct full frontal government assault on free speech and private property and as usual has been met with total acquiescence by the media and commentators.

The Cma should be abolished along with all the other so called independent non departmental government bodies whose implicit intent is to destroy what's left of the free market and strangle business by hedging it around with restrictive,arbitrary non objective laws, couched in deliberately ill defined,vague language  making it impossible for business to function,never knowing from one day to the next whether it will fall foul of one of the bureaurcracy's subjective rules and stipulations.

The overall intent of such invasive government agencies is to punish the most successful and innovative businesses by forcing them to be broken up to allow 'fair' competition and access to the less competent and innovative businesses and is thus an example of egalitarian ideology enforced by the State.

Google V EU

The EU's commission's announcement earlier this week that it is fining Google £2 billion for unfair practices is another obscene illustration of how the institution is the very antithesis of neo liberal as some on the Left bizarely assert and that it is on the contrary a semi socialist protectionist block wholly hostile to entrepreneurship and capitalism.

If Trump wants to really put 'America first' he would announce that the US will  no longer recognise the EU as a legitimate legislative body that can impose such criminal fines on US companies and grant Google legal immunity from any actions of the Commission.

Google should announce that it is withdrawing its operations from the EU also.

The 1967 Abortion

The Abortion Act of 1967 was a legal evasion in that it allowed abortion on certain conditions including the assent of two registered doctors and if the life of the mother could be proved to be in jeopardy by giving birth, rather than asserting what it should have, namely the right of the mother to her own body and to choose whether to have an abortion or not. By this evasion morality was circumvented in favour of expediency re the above mentioned exemptions.

So abortion has remained a criminal offence punishable by jail and the recent move to decriminalise it is way over due. The fact that the present law has been used by millions of women to have an abortion is beside the point as the fundamental principle of the right of the woman to her own body and what to do with it ie the protection of her individual rights should haven been unequivocally asserted as inalienable, a fundamental principle  not be evaded or obfuscated by the weasel fudge  of legal loopholes.

For the same reason all drugs should be de criminalised but again a compromised evasive solution has been adopted where those with clinical conditions are allowed access to certain drugs.

The purpose and motive behind both legal positions is clearly the State's deliberate intention to  deny the principle of individual rights and replace them with subjective arbitrary rules and conditions totally at the mercy of their favour  ie special privileges, not rights.

The Social Disease

Whenever a word is prefixed by the word 'social' alarm bells should start ringing as some fraud or logical sleight of hand is invariably about to be perpetrated. 'A Social Attitude survey has found' is definitely a case in point. I have already discussed collectivist words and phrases that go under the radar such a 'public opinion' etc and the collectivist word  'social' is another.

The media this morning is full of a Public Attitude Survey that reveals that a sizeable proportion of those asked would like to see taxes raised to pay for public services. Leaving aside the dodgy methodology of such surveys and the rigged leading questions with their false premises - (ie that more money given to poorly run State services will improve them) there is an obvious solution for those who feel that they are not being taxed sufficiently,namely, they can contact the Inland Revenue service and request that it take  more tax from them.

Of course such people would protest vigorously at such a suggestion as what they are really doing in such a case is virtue signalling  and what they want is for other people to pay more taxes as well.

Bolshevik Broadcasting Corporation

Nick Robinson twice prevented Grant Schapps from critiquing Corbyn  on the Today programme this morning revealing his true red colours and blowing for the trillionth time the BBC's absurd, fantastically false claim to be politically neutral. The organization clearly believes it is beyond the reach of any sanctions as every time the Conservatives moot such a step there are howls about political interference in the Public Service Broadcaster from the liberal establishment and it thus has total immunity -and what's more knows it and acts accordingly as witness Robinson's brazen  behaviour.

Myth of the 'Right Wing Press'

In order to nail the obvious Left canard of the 'Right wing press' one only has to do a simple balance sheet of British newspapers. In the Right corner we have the Telegraph, Daily Mail and  Daily Express. In the Left corner we have the Guardian,the Daily Mirror,  the Observer and by my reckoning the Independent but even if that is rejected there is the Morning Star which last time I checked was selling in Smiths! So another Left lie exposed.

I noticed recently that our local newspaper has been taken over by the Mirror group so we are now treated to endless lefty propaganda columns by the likes of novelist, environmentalist and Corbinist Julie Wassemer and all the letters seem to be written by lefties. Whatever else this is it is defintely not indicative of a 'right wing press'.

On the other hand we definitely do  have a Left wing broadcasting media totally controlled and regulated by the State. Just watch and listen to any BBC political output with Question Time being the most blatant illustration with its 'self selected' left wing audience.

Can Conservatism Survive?

All the while Blairism ruled the Labour party pragmatic Conservatism could trundle along winning the odd election and still be just about a viable force in British politics but with the emergence and triumph of the hard left Corbyn socialism of Labour it is looking decidedly threadbare,weak,pallid,insipid  compromised and downright shifty by comparison.

 Post mid 90's there was no discernible need for a Thatcher,the socialist dragons had all been slayed, or so it was thought,and it remained merely a managerial task of the tories to run the country efficaciously.Ideology was out the window,buried along with history and post Blair the tories had practically become the unofficial Blairite party. It was the future once.

Then  Labour changed its rules and opened up membership to the general public at £5 a time and it opened the floodgates for all the old hitherto alienated Labour voters  and activists to pile in,swell Labour's ranks exponentially and allow Corbyn to come back from the political dead and take over the party.

Are there lessons for the tories to be learned here? I would say absolutely. It should take a leaf out of Labour's book and do the exact same thing. Membership would double and it would be considerably to the right of the tory MPs, in a cabinet where currently and staggeringly 20 of the 27 members are Remainers (which roughly reflects the stark fact that 75% of all MPs in the House of Commons are Remainers).

This policy if adopted would put some lead in the tories pencil but ultimately I believe it is a victim of its pragmatism which was there from the very start and its pragmatic chickens are only now just coming home to roost. Its decline  and moral disintegration is inoperable and a new party of a liberal,libertarian bent will be the only real and credible counter to Labour's statist authoritarian advance. The only question remaining is  will there even be enough time for such a movement to emerge for Corbynism has taken everyone by surprise including myself and I am not so sure or confident that there will be.

Unidentified Collectivist Terms in the Political Baggage Dept

There are everyday words and phrases that go under the radar below conscious awareness that we should really identify and pay attention to   in order to understand the motivation of those politicians and influencers who use them on a daily basis thus enabling us to  be protected and immune from their intended effects.

Some examples are: the public, public mood, public anger,public opinion, public consciousness,the people, the will of the people, society,the local community,the many not the few - and it should be noted that all of these have something in common in that they are collectivist terms and they are invariably articulated by statist politicians when justifying yet another power grab by the state in the form of regulation,tax increases and  state creep in general.Some statist politicians occasionally break cover and refer explicitly to the 'collective consciousness' which only they can somehow mystically divine and articulate.

As Thatcher said there is no such thing as society (although Rand said it before her in a 60's essay) and the claim has been  vehemently repudiated by statists ever since but has never been invalidated simply by virtue of the fact that it is a statement of the obvious.

It is clear why politicians would want to deploy such collectivist terms when proposing yet another piece of invasive state legislation but it would be enough for people to simply identify them when they are invoked and  reject them.

Religious People Say the Dumbest Things( Part 300)

1.  Roy Masters  the leader of the self styled Fhu cult within a cult once said, to paraphrase, God made sex exciting for man because he knew that otherwise he  would fall down on the job of perpetuating the human race. Note that having children is not seen as what  it is, namely  a profoundly  selfish act done for the benefit of the parents but as an altruistic self sacrificing collectivistic duty and chore of man to replenish the human  race. Note also that there is no reference in the Bible to this motivation  of God's cited by Masters and it is just yet another bizarre concoction created by him out of thin air. (As there are so many fantastic unbelievable events and claims documented in the Good Book  one would not have thought there was any need to invent yet more but there we are).

2. Another gem from Roy as his craven supporters love to call him: Christians have to be burried so that if they are brought back from the dead they are more or less intact whereas if they were cremated how could they be reconstructed . Youwhat?! The God that can perform mind blowing miracles too many to enumerate here is going to have problems reconstituting a pile of ashes back to its former human form and state? Really? Having swallowed a camel you are going to strain at a gnat? In the words of the late great Christopher Hitchens, don't waste my time with such nonsense!

Not Bringing it All Back Home

Why is the UK repatriating all Brussels regulations to the British parliament -did we not vote to leave to get away from all its Byzantines rules and regulations in the first place? If they are they are to be duplicated and replicated here at home  one wonders what the point of the exercise of freeing ourselves from Brussels was all about.

Way too much has been made of the complicated negotiations in store for the UK chiefly by those who want us to stay but it is only complicated if we play the EU's game which is about frustrating our intention to have a clean break from its oppressive rule by bogging us down in endless negotiations that lead nowhere.Cut the Gordian knot on the other hand, acknowledge openly and publicly that the EU is not a good faith negotiator and we are simple leaving and the thing will be done.

Maj Serves up Maybot's Thin Gruel

It was a squalid document from a crippled Maybot, impudently promising a rise in the minimum wage, an outrageous statist construct to begin with, representing a grievous state intrusion into the market,violating the individual rights of both employers and employees -the former to the inalienable freedom to run their business as they see fit and the latter to the right to work for whatever sum they agree with their employer - and the continued craven obedience to the UN dictat that the UK must spend 0.7% of GDP on the international welfare programme commonly known as the Black Hole of Foreign Aid.

The desultory speech lasted a mere 10 minutes reflecting the tory's total humiliating general election rout, and was bereft of the promise for more grammar schools -about the only good think Maybot came up with ever and the necessary reforms of the social care crisis.

Insipid Blairite toryism may limp on for a season but the Marxist vultures are circling above poised to pick its rotting flesh and cranking up for the Communist horror show to come.

Day of Rage and Envy

McDonnel,the smiling asssassin, master of the carefully cultivated innocent disengenuous look has ordered his fascist left supporters onto the streets in their millions today to intimidate and attempt to bring the government down.When the Labour party was purging itself of its hard left members in the 80's McDonnel and Corbyn clearly slipped through the net with the catastrophic result that what was a lunatic fringe within the Labour party has become the main controlling body of it and we now face a defacto British Communist party within spitting distance of power.

I drew parallells in a recent post between the fascist Left and its Orwellian policing of language through political correctness and the fascist Islamists with their censoring of dissent and hatred and intolerance of freedom of speech but another thing they both have in common is their understanding that they face no moral intellectual opposition anywhere,that the liberal establishment is corrupt and decadent and if you push consistently over time it will fold and collapse. Enough intimidation and terroristic acts playing  the long game and victory will be had.

We consequently face the twin terrors of Islamism and the fascist Left on the march - but crucially, no Thatcher in sight. This is the peril we confront naked and defenceless,intellectually and morally disarmed by decades of betrayal and subversion by the intellectuals and a conservative party long given over to amoral cynical pragmatism.

Other Foot, Meet Shoe

Suddenly the 'Muslim Community has found its voice,become passionate in unequivocally denouncing terrorism ,muslims are queueing up to get in front of a tv screen denouncing terrorism - terrorism directed at them that is.Now they are vocal,animated,outraged.Before,when it was Islamic terrorism against non muslims -nothing,silence complcit,passivity,silence. Now they want to tell us all about how they are a persecuted minority,everyone's got it it in for them,they are victims,neoNazis are round every corner targeting them. And the BBC and other self loathing liberal broadcasting outfits can't get enough of it. Compare and contrast.

Why is the Left so Sympatico with Islam?

With its political correctness of enforced speech codes,intolerance of opposition,hostility to free speech,illiberal silencing of dissenters,no platforming,boycotting,theories of micro aggression,safe spaces,trigger warnings and Orwellian policing of thoughts and ideas etc the thin skinned fascist left bears an uncanny resemblance to the thin skinned illiberal intolerant islamists and together they pose a serious threat to freedom and liberty in the West.

Howard Jacobson: A Study in Pure Evil

In BBC's R4 Points of View Howard Jacobson likened Brexiteers to Nazis and Remainers to French resistance fighters inWW2. As if this was not obscene and unconscionable enough he went on to compound the moral outrage by claiming those who won the referendum and were telling the losers to 'get over it' were like those who said survivors of the Holocaust and Auschwitz should get over it and seek closure. It was a case he continued of 'sore winners' re the Leavers. No Mr Jacobson the reason the Leavers are so mad at smug liberals like you is the entitlement culture you embody that makes you think the result should be reversed and it should liberal establishment business as usual.The contempt for democracy that such liberals exhibit belies the idea that they believe in it and reveals that their defence of is dependent upon them prevailing politically and if they are rejected by the majority they are quite prepared to throw their democracy out the window.This is the shocking reveleation that the referendum result has revealed.

That the BBC saw fit to air Jacobson's rant is indicative of the cancerous state of liberal thought in the early 21st century.

Praised Be the State

Faith in the state to deliver salvation is no less irrational than faith in God yet it is such a common delusion held in spite of all the overwhelming evidence to the contrary that it has to be acknowledged that  statism is indeed the new secular religion,the faith that passeth all understanding.No matter how many times it is demonstrated that a large intrusive invasive state pledged to provide people's every need and watch over them permanently from the cradle to the grave creates dependency infantilism,delinquency and an illiberal state that tramples on individual rights in pursuit of the collectivist ideal still people cling stubbornly to its nostrums and promises, holding to the Augustinian precept 'I believe because its unbelievable'.

No matter how many millions of corpses have been sacrificed to this statist ideal,never mind,the morality is pure and will ultimately lead to the New Jurusalem. Just a bit more sacrifice,a few more corpses and the eschatological destination will be reached.

The Left and the politics of Hate

The ugly street scenes yesterday from the left wing rent a mob Socialist Workers Party -surely redundant now  with the emergence of Corbyn, fanned unconscionably  by the vanguard of leftwingery the BBC was a perfect illustration from the left wing handbook on how to whip up hatred and rage and sow the seeds of discontent on faux class lines. The ugly shroud waving and grievance mongering was on display in all its toxic putrescence,a glimpse of the kind of world we will be entering if Corbyn and his fellow socialist thugs and henchmen get their hands on the levers of power.

There is a shadow on the land and the very real visceral fear that thanks to the ideological betrayal of the Conservatives personified in Theresa May the sinister clown Corbyn and his fellow socialist cohorts will end up in 10 Downing St and begin their Venezuelan Project and Britain as we know it will cease to exist, replaced by a dark tyrannical power that brooks no dissent and in all its vile core essentials is totalitarian bound.

One Religion is all Religions

If Christianity and Islam were only formed 40 years ago objectively speaking they would  rightly be viewed as cults but time and longevity has lent to them (totally unjustified in my estimation), respectability and gravitas to the point where criticism and satire of them is actually regarded and treated as a 'hate crime' punishable by prosecution and even jail not to mention imminent threat of death re Islam.

The UK state is not an impartial observer as it should be regarding institutions of faith as it is wedded to the state religion of Christianity re the Church of England and it is imperative that this ceases to be the case and disestablsihment should proceed apace in conjunction with the dissolution of the monarchy which is inextricably bound up with it and is the institutional constitutional physical manifestation of faith re the ancient heritage of the 'divine right of kings'.


Living in a Political World

If every fire,every flood,every natural disaster is political then we really are moving ever closer to totalitarianism. Is there anything that the State is not responsible for? It is already policing our thoughts, emotions,loves and hates and now it has taken control over every element of existence itself. Listening to the wailing and gnashing of teeth and demands for government action over the fire tragedy is like listening to semi free serfs demanding more chains.

Statist politicians are demanding more state control,evading the fact that the tragedy in London was caused by State control of housing which is the most regulated in the world and the fact is that the tragedy and regulations cannot be separated as they are causally linked. So too it must  be noted that there were environmentalist factors and agendas dictating regulation policy that impacted on the fire.

None of these things of course will be addressed in the post mortem amidst the hysteria, political cynicism and opportunism and all the wrong conclusions will be drawn about the imperative for yet more regulations and state control of housing.

Faux Idealism

Re the student Corbots, what is idealistic about voting for a political party that promises to take stuff from other people and give it to you -am I missing something here? This is a perversion and corruption of idealism,its antithesis in fact. True the young are idealistic but they spend all their educational years in corrupt institutions where 80% of their tutors teachers and lecturers as I have previously mentioned are leftists. They have consequently never been exposed to any non statist arguments.Everything has been funneled through a left wing perspective leaving them no chance to hear opposing views,counter arguments. Voting at the recent election was not some out of the blue (or red) inexplicable phenomena but the culmination of 15 years propaganda programming which culminated in the students dutifully carrying out the instructions of their socialist change agent  educators.

The Zombie State

A neutralised government is not such a bad thing. It cannot be legislatively hyperactive and with May's statitst leftist tendencies this has its advantages. The plague on both your houses verdict of the electorate also has a lot to commend itself morally and politically -none of these jokers are fit to run the country so a paralysed state in the lamentable circumstances may be the best option available. 'None of the above' is a perfectly respectable response of the electorate and is the true victor of the election.

Democracy in Crisis

Democracy is not inherently corrupt as it denotes a voting process that has been perverted by egalitarian concepts such as redistribution of wealth which were never originally intended and which has led to a perversion of liberty. If the role of the state was properly delimited voting in a democracy would be over minor details not fundamental issues involving individual rights and their violation as in the present system.

Such safeguards are essential if democracy is not to lead to demagoguery but as this past election has showed it is perilously in danger of  happening ,throwing up a demagogue in the form of Corbyn. It should not be forgotten that Hitler was elected legitimately in a democratic process but that did not save Germany from his egregious depradations.

Corbyn was never subject to the close inspection and criticism by the broadcasting media as the incumbent party and was never once referred to as leader of the 'far left'  as the tory party would have been if it adopted  extreme views in the opposite direction   undoubtedly being referred to as a 'far right' party.

Mixed Economy Chickens Come Home To Roost

A mixed economy is a house divided against itself that cannot stand. Sooner or later it must perforce collapse upon its own internal contradictions. Beloved by pragmatists it cannot withstand the full force of a confronting ideology that makes it seem pallid and vacillating by comparison even if the ideology in question is insane as Corbyn socialism clearly is. It holds up an idealistic vision albeit in this case patently dystopic of total state control,fairy tale solutions involving money trees and manna from Marxist heaven run by unions and party aparatchiks hunting down heretics who deviate from the programme and show any recidivist Blairite tendencies.

A mixed economy by defintion is a mixture of two competing ideas of government,socialist and capitalist. This unstable combination and contradiction has to resolve itself either by coming down on the side of complete socialism or complete capitalism.No one looking at the prevailing cultural norms could possibly assert that capitalism is the predominant ideological trend that will triumph when the Conservatives don't even believe in it or dare espouse its premises and fundamental precepts of liberty,small government, limited state interference in the markets  (reference May's semi socialist manifesto and speech on entering 10 Downing St).

After decades of compromising and selling out on capitalism,apologising for it,damning it with faint praise offering statist conservative solutions the mixed economy chickens have finally come home to roost and an avowed Marxist came within a few votes of becoming prime minister and may well cross the finishing line next time in the absence of an uncompromising pro capitalist conservative candidate which as far as I can see does not exist at this time.

Anti Establishment Youth. Really?

One of the most bizarre fictions of this election is the idea that the student  youth's support for Corbyn and their explicit  wish to be permanently sucking on the state's tit is a sign of them being anti establishment. The students are, on the contrary, institutionalised body and soul,reared by state funded leftist  teachers and professors in the universities and brainwashed into thinking that the state is the solution to all their problems and primed into a cravenly  statist groupthink in the most abjectly non radical and conformist way.

It is a total triumph of the Corbynite cult of personality propaganda that this glaring fact about him and his statist politics and the student's support for him has been so comprehensively misinterpreted.

Something In the Water?

The fact that the British electorate came within a whisker of electing to power a Marxist government and a left wing dictatorship should give us all pause and cause some reflection on the role ideology has played in this disastrous election. People will go to the barricades for an ideology but they won't get out of bed for pragmatism -even if the ideology on offer is barking mad and would lead to national suicide if ever implemented.

The Conservatives should look back and re think their obsession with pragmatism or Corbyn will win outright next time. I do not however think it can or will.Unless a new political party right of centre emerges the future for the country is very bleak indeed.

Er, I Told You So Part 2

Jeremy Trump

The anti establishment paranoid rant from Corbyn could have been lifted straight from the Trump handbook and who's to say it will  not resonate with all the angry pro big government section of the electorate here too? If recent trends are anything to go by the mad Marxist of Islington could well be snapping at  May's heels and overturn all media and pollster expectations once again.

Statism is the national religion so the electorate may conclude why not elect its high priest? The country will continue on its trajectory to a big state authoritarianism either way  but will just arrive at it quicker under Corbyn when the country will no doubt be twinned with Venezuela.

With the help of the Greens and the duplicitous Liberals,the SNP and Welsh there could even be a coalition of the deranged, a multicoloured nightmare all needlessly created by May herself, a woman  clearly without principles or integrity who has recklessly instigated this general election from hell.



Er, Told You So

Mayday

A record low turn out at the general election would send a clear message to the Westminster parasitic political elites - a plague on your house as they all share the same political home and there is no fundamental choice between the parties.Hubris is waiting in the wings for May and she shows herself to be very dim in actually basing her cynical decision on opinion polls of all things!

May was a continuation of Cameron,there was no break, no justification for seeking a mandate for herself,she was a Remainer like him and it was business as usual so the mandate seeking argument does not fly. No this was pure politicking and the public sense it and will probably punish her with a small majority hardly bigger than her present one - or with a hung parliament. There is a very real risk that she will be hoist on her own Heathite peturd.

May's Folly

An opportunistic move that could backfire spectacularly and unite all May's opposition to bring about her downfall. It will be Brexit Revisited but with the opposite result -this is the danger and I think it is a massive miscalculation on her part born of cynicism.The election will be a de facto referendum re run bringing out all the divisions when the country needs to get on with the job of getting out of the EU. Imagine a hung parliament and what that will do to Brexit.This is an unconscionable act of gross irresponsibility.

Broadcast Media in the hands of the State

There is a carpet ban on political debate throughout the whole of the broadcasting media in the UK on election day providing a conspicuous contrast with the free press which can print what it will without any state restrictions. This is an appalling state of affairs and one that should not be acquiesced in and tolerated without protest. The result of this repression and violation of free speech is a neutered broadcasting system which even at the best of times is bland due to the onerous state regulation of the airwaves -a state of affairs the left would like to duplicate in our at present free press if it got the chance

Reality or Moneytreeism

Are the polls lying yet again and May due for an electoral landslide? With opinion polls about as accurate as global warming predictions its anyone's guess.  If the the amount of Labour posters in people's windows round this part of Kent is anything to go by you would have to say Corbyn will win and its notable how many of them are houses in wealthy areas betokening the usual middle class guilt.

There are clearly a lot of shy secret tory voters out there, no doubt scared they will get a brick through their window if they display a tory poster which tells us all we need to know about Labour supporters. Voting tory is like a secret vice,the allegiance that dare not speak its name, as if a moral taint is attached to such allegiance which is testimony to how successful the left has been in colonising the moral high ground, undeservedly but the product of years of the tories emphasising economics and abandoning the field of ethics and morality to the left.Such a moral abdication may exact a very high price for them and us.

National Suicide Or Theresa May?

Its bad,no one can deny, a choice between a rabid socialist and a lacklustre,values-free tory opportunist Remainer but who is nonetheless a billion times better than the socialist.So holding one's nose the only option is to vote May to buy time and slow the descent into statist hell.But enthusiasm or even hope is entirely absent,just a delaying and stay of execution.A narrow to medium majority will be the best outcome,not the ringing endorsement May thought was hers, as her Remainer instincts are not to be given full rein.

Thersa's Secret weapon against Islamists Revealed

We face an evil ideology of Jihadism and how are we going to wage war against it? With Pluralism! Our values she says are superior to theirs and all she can offer in proof is the weasel non word Pluralism which is little more than Multiculturalism in disguise. The dictionary definition of pluralism is the holding by various co existing groups within a country of competing belief systems within a 'common civilization' but it does not proffer what that common civilization consists of and neither does May because she hasn't got a clue.She is on principle an anti ideologist and is reduced to mouthing airy platitudes and vacuous generalities delivered in an emphatic tough talk style hoping  no one will notice the contradiction.

I am not suggesting that the State should be promoting an ideology as that is expressly not its role, it not being in the business of promoting ideas but the very least we should expect from our leaders is protection from those who seek to destroy us not facile speeches and burblings about pluralism and  proposing curbs on free speech which goes to the very heart of what contstitutes a free country.

Theresa in Wonderland

Imagine if Churchill had said we cannot defeat the Nazis militarily but we can change the way they think and attempt to root out their hate and outlaw their extremism. The British people would rightly think he had taken leave of his senses but that explicitly is what Theresa May said in response to the latest Jihadist atrocities in London: we cannot defeat them by force so we just need to outlaw their hate and extremism by closing down the internet.

If anyone wondered what the source of the West's impotence and abject failure in the face of Islamic barbarism and dark age religious atrocities the above cited comments will tell them all they need to know.

Religion Poisons Everything

Yet again the Islamanihilists strike at freedom and politicians wring their hands, utter cliches and platitudes and propose yet more restrictions on our liberty in the name of fighting the evil.Theresa May declares that this evil cannot be destroyed militarily,by force and this is the Big Lie and if we swallow it we are finished and I gave the exact solutions a few posts back.

May also repeated the oft heard canard that the perpetrators last night in London represented a perversion of Islam. Really? This again I have pointed out recently is untrue,the perpetrators represent the precise essence of what Islam actually is,a death centred cult.

You cannot fight what you do not understand and this willful refusal to recognise the facts that are in plain view is pathological and will lead to our ultimate defeat and destruction

Freedom V Democracy

Democracy is supposed to be about the small insignificant stuff. Big principles like freedom liberty, individual rights should not be up for grabs and determined by majority rule, to be voted away by the biggest gang, dignified by the word constituency. One's life and inalienably concomitant rights should not be up for public auction,sold off to the highest bidder. But they are and freedom and liberty is  consequently in mortal danger.

When was there last a debate about what the state should or should not be allowed to do.what's its proper role is, its limitations and scope? Absent such a debate authoritarianism has made great advances,unchecked by any counter argument,any call for restraint and delineation of the state's desired parameters. There is no end to people's demands and calls on the state to interfere and meddle with human activity,there is no limit to the reach of the unchecked state in pursuit of its ideological goals.

Such is the parlous state of today's political culture where all discourse is fed through the narrow prism of restricting liberties in pursuit of egalitarian goals.

Hence the dismal and dispiriting non debates of the present election where principles are absent and the candidates are vying for yet more control over their demoralised subjects and where one special interest group is cancelled out by a bigger one and all are left frustrated and impotent, dimly aware that they have been cheated, that their destinies and lives are not in their control but in the control of distant forces that patronise them every 5 years and inveigle them to vote against their own long term interests,sullied and tainted by a corrupt system that has robbed them of their personal autonomy, that they themselves have enabled and foolishly given their moral sanction.

Choose Your Mafia Gang

Voting for crime syndicates rather than political parties,this is what democracy has come to, pressure group warfare where voting becomes collusion with the kleptocratic state.

We laugh at the revolting French across the channel with their conflicting ideology of Liberte and Egalite but we have the precise same conflict over here and it has been resolved on the side of egalitarianism. Just pick your redistributor.

The Devil or the deep Blue Sea?

The only antidote to bad ideology is good ideology,not pragmatism as the tories believe. Of course their dogmatic pragmatism is an ideology anyway and their refusal to confront the bad ideology of Corbyn socialism,or even turn up for the debate could well come back to bite them at the election as they could be sleepwalking to defeat,hung parliament or the narrowest of majorities for their arrogance contempt and moral cowardice.

People are beginning to suspect that May does not believe in anything other than the exercise of power, that she is an empty vessel and her fear of debating with Corbyn is further proof that this is so. The fact that the country is confronted with the most extreme political ideologue in Corbyn since the post war Labour government and the tory party has nothing to say about it,no counter belief system,no philosophy is proof of its intellectual bankruptcy and unfitness to govern.

Yet those of us who fear we are staring into an abyss of Venezuelan proportions have no recourse but to vote tory to buy a stay of execution and live to fight another day.Such is the morass we are in.

Something Better Change?

Spare a thought at the coming election for the poor benighted disenfranchised libertarian voter with nary a political home to go to. As he casts his eyes on the existing field he could be forgiven for thinking he lives in a one party state for what is on offer from all the candidates of the various parties  but an orgy of public spending, endless promises of splurges of other people's money to throw at the dsyfunctional public services leading to a still a greater expansion of the oppressive state and taking us  down the long and winding road of serfdom.

There is hope however for if Ukip could change British history with just one member of parliament -and only that towards the end maybe too much store is based on it and the real solution for fundamental change lies beyond the gilded environs of Westminster.

What Will Civilize Islam?

1 Military take out of Tehran

2 Threat of the same to Saudi Arabia and any other Middle East country that threatens the West

3 Demolition of Mecca and Medina


With these three Islam would be bombed into the 21st century otherwise it could prevail by attrition till Europe is overtaken ,shariad and Islamified.

Until Islam is neutered like Christianity it will pose a threat to civilization and the West will be permanently lighting candles and having endless one minute silences. The time for silence and appeasement is over.

Does the West have self belief to do the above? There is little to no evidence that it does and that is its tragedy.

Lie Back and Think of Venezuela

Is the unthinkable possible - a Corbyn victory? I have predicted a much more narrow win for May than she somehow thinks is her birthright  and said that it was a foolhardy unnecessary risk to go to the country on her part and certainly Corbyn appears to be catching up and narrowing her initial lead. Ideology v pragmatism could  well equal Venezuela as the public sleepwalks to the ballot box seduced by the siren call of free stuff for everybody dispensed with prodigal liberality by a demented Santa Claus bereft of all  his renowned former powers of discrimination.

Maybe if the prevailing othodoxy is pragmatism May will squeeze through but it is playing Russian Roulette with  the country's future and sooner or later the country will be forced to choose between Corbynism or the only real alternative,pure capitalism and now that ideology is apparently respectable or acceptable again what's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander and the ideology of capitalism should be articulated.

Who or What Created the New Atheism

There has been an inevitable backlash against the new atheism in recent years with quite a lot coming from the left but I have yet to hear any of these critics cite the most likely cause of the new atheism. Peter Hitchens absurdly seeks to blame it on a desire for hedonism but there is a fundamental elephant in the room cause which I have not heard him or anyone else address: the rise of militant Islamism in the last few decades.

The global Islamist threat must be the number one cause of the new atheism. Up to its emergence everyone more or less thought faith and organised religion had been pretty much consigned to the rubbish bin of history until it came back again with a vengeance. Up till that point religion was putting on a respectable front particularly Christianity which had been neutered and defanged by the reformation and enlightenment when this old monolithic relic of Islam burst back on the scene in all its unreformed primitive literalist blood curdling horror.

Aping barbaric Christianity before it was civilized by modernity Islam has come back like a bad dream to remind people of just how evil unreformed religion is in its fundamentalist original incarnation when wedded to the State in theocratic unholy union. Far from being an aberration of a religion gone bad the true nature and essence of faith is manifested in present day Islamism for all to see and hence the reaction against it in the new  atheism.The latter's opponents should at least have the humility to recognise the  cause of this phenomena.

Cling to Nurse

Hold your nose and vote Tory unless you want a madman rampaging across the country wielding a hammer and sickle.Its a negative endorsement,there will be no conservative banners waved here but the threat of the Red Menace is so real it really is the only choice to hand.

Disenfranchised libertarians for want of a better word really need to start getting it together in future if we are not to be left every time elections come around with this invidious choiceless choice of different brands of spam.Spam spam spam spam spam.

There are No Recovering Believers

It is quite painless to become an atheist. It may take some intellection over time but I have found there are no deleterious effects or withdrawal symptoms connected to loss of faith. It is like losing nothing, a vacuum, so insignificant and nebulous is the very nature of faith which indeed is little more than a foundationless assertion of belief. When it is gone it is not missed. It is little more than a bad habbit let go of.

There is a process of disintegration as one lets go the airy premises of faith but the re integration that follows it,the adjustment to a pro reason outlook follows a logical progression that is as painless as it is rewarding.Like removing blinkers  the consequences of abandoning faith are salutary and the only regret is that one has wasted so much time believing something so ridiculous and absurd, realising one has been the victim of a scam or a hoax and feeling a little silly.

It can take a while however to fully divest oneself of the vestiges of faith for it is insidious and like an abandoned habbit it can make appeals upon one to backslide and capitulate to it on a subtle level that must be guarded against but such appeals can be quickly dismissed by the application of reason against which it has no defense or power and is consequently  thereby vanquished.

Foreign Policy by Displacement

Re the so called war on terror governments engage in displacement activity ie invading Iraq and Afghanistan rather than Iran and Saudi Arabia, it places innocent people under state surveillance and allows the terrorists to slip through its net and very insidiously rather than going after the known suspects it wages a phoney war on 'extremism' which is a deliberately vague indefinable elastic term that theoretically encompasses anyone with intensely held views and beliefs either good or bad since the term itself does not connote the contents of someone's given belief but only the extent to which they hold it ie consistently and uncompromisingly. I could be an extremist by that wooly imprecise term as I believe in limited government with 0% taxation and regulation etc. This is the danger of of a government policy based on such a term.

Displacement activity is classically illustrated in the West's doomed ventures in Libya and Syria and it seems lessons are never learned when it comes to governments engaging in proxy wars,half hearted doomed exercises in grandstanding adventurism with no coherent policy or objective,foreign policy by emotional spasm.

Naming the enemy and waging all out war against it? No, governements would rather go after google and the internet and close down websites to stamp out 'extremism' to signal their virtue and strip us of our liberties in the process.

National Security Egalitarian Style

Time after time terrorist atrocities are committed by muslims who were 'on the radar' under a system that targets everybody and nobody because profiling is prohibited and re such a system a little old lady with a hearing aid is just as likely a suspect as a known muslim extremist. Egalitarianism dictates that no distinction between the two can be made.The toxi  ideological code of political correctness thus kills and led directly to the Manchester Massacre.

The evil swine and subhuman who committed the atrocity had even ben reported several times as being a potential danger and nothing was done. The national security apparatchiks were too busy monitoring everybody's phone calls no doubt and demanding their surveillance net be thrown over us all.

A suicide bomber is bad enough but a country  busy committing national suicide is the ultimate obscenity.

Time For Disestablishment

Religion kills and poisons everything. Disestablishment will send a clear message that the state is no longer aligned to religion  and  is non sectarian,non ideological and neutral and has no institutional links with monotheism. Then the fight against Islamonihilism can be uncompromised by religious affiliations by dint of  non association with primitive barbaric medieval religious beliefs be they Christianity or Islam which share the same roots.

To fight the evil perpetrated by the Manchester Massacre of innocents it is necessary to fight the source which is religious faith by cutting all formal historical institutional ties with it forthwith.

How Not To React to Islamanihilism -and how to Defeat it

The decision to suspend all electioneering till  the weekend in response to the Islmanihilist attack in Manchester although well intentioned is profoundly wrong as it allows the terrorists to determine people's behaviour and interrupt the democratic process which is their intention. They should never be permitted to stop the traffic and this is playing into their hands.By carrying on we are emphasising the impotence of the Islamanihilists and showing them that the human life force is far greater in breadth scope and magnitude than their inhuman death force.

We should also of course take out Iran militarily and threaten the same to Saudi Arabia and  any other countries who seek to emulate them and the whole terrorist thing would be over by the end of the year.

Sexual Predator Trump Visits the Pope

Did Trump visit the pope to have his sins blessed? The misogynist serial abuser of women has wrapped himself in religion to get into the Whitehouse and is seeking further religious imprimatur from the socialist pope.His next stop is visiting the Saudis where their gross human rights violations and misogynist culture will of course go unmentioned by Trump who is too busy sucking up to it and selling the Islamic Fascist state arms.

Meanwhile the Trumpgate proceeedings continue apace and it is fully on the cards that this braggart and authoritarian fraudster will be ignominiously bundled out of the Whitehouse  long before the end of his first and only term.The damage it it will do to America is incalculable.

Why Altruism is still a Thing

Most people do not practice altruism and would not dream of feeding the next door neighbour's children instead of their own but they feel guilty for not practicing what is taught as a noble thing so they vote for the party that proffers altruistic programmes -especially if they are wealthy where their guilt is magnified proportionately.They get politicians to do on their behalf what they are unable to practice in their own lives. Altruism by proxy is the result.

Where does the guilt come from but the residual Christianity upon which the West has been indoctrinated for centuries. The outward forms of religion have  long been abandoned but the essential altruistic preachments of the gospels remain imbedded in the culture and manifests in politics.

People will accept a little bit of altruism in their politics but not in an unadulterated form as with Corbyn which is why he is unlikely to become prime minister although note that  people are still sympathetic to his 'ideals' but dismiss them as 'impractical' and vote instead for the diluted Altruism Lite of Theresa May. But the fact remains that she has to include elements of altruism in her manifesto if she is not to appear heartless and endorsing selfishness which is testimony to the continued and enduring influence of altruism and  all  politicians know they must invoke it to some degree in order to stand any hope of gaining power.

Until a morality of selfishness is invoked and a critique of altruism from a moral ethical perspective a la Ayn Rand is articulated altruism will continue to have a vice like grip on the culture and polity and people will continue to vote into office politicians who advocate suicidal collectivist statist altruistic socialsitic programmes that impoversih the country and erode the liberty and freedom of the people in an inevitable and ultimately invidious authoritarian direction.

The idea that the battle for ideas can be won on the field of economics is deluded and ahistorical. The people of Venezuela are dying of starvation,there are no dogs or cats on the street,they have all been eaten,there are no animals in the zoos,ditto but the people are still wedded to socialism as an ideal, all the economic logic to the contrary. It is ideas that move nations not economics and the conservative right made a terrible error when they chose economics to fight socialism rather than morality ceding the latter to the left with disastrous consequences. Without a vocabulary to challenge the faux morality of the left conservatism will continue to cede ground,appropriate socialist programmes (see Theresa May's Manifesto)  and thus pave the way for ultimate victory by the collectivists.

May's Sinister Cadre

Timothy Lane is Theresa May's  evil Socialist Svengali, the unseen power behind the throne as May is essentially tabula Rasa with no discernible beliefs and in this she bears an uncanny resemeblance to her predecessor Cameron whose brow was untroubled by thought - other than the pursuit and the achievement of power for power's sake, another thing May has in common with him as well as yet another,their Remainer status.

It is no accident that Lane's political inspiration is Joseph Chamberlain, a leftist tory who introduced socialist programmes on tarrifs,taxation and welfare in the late 19th century and who even at the time was regarded by other tories as a Dick Turpin figure. Lane is undoubtedly pulling May's strings but as Corbyn is a red meat socialist those who wish there to remain at least some capitalist elements to the present system have no choice but to hold their nose and vote Conservative.

Funding Of Political Parties

The political parties are nationalised and funded by the taxpayer and this should end and the parties should be soley dependent upon private funding from individuals ,businesses and trade unions. It is immoral for someone to have to financially support a political party hostile to their own beliefs and values. There should be no financial cap on how much a political party receives in donations as individuals and groups should be free to support whatever ideology or beliefs they choose with no interference from the state.

Objections that this would lead to cronyism -as if it did not exist in the present system is false because the role of the state would be strictly delimited and the parties would not be in a position to bestow favours on any particular interest group and the cronyist lobby system would would come to an end as cronyism is a feature of the mixed economy where the state is intimately and intricately bound up with business in an unholy alliance and the latter has to effectively pay it of like the mafia to make it go away.

Ukip's Revolutionary Legacy

The lesson of Ukip's meteoric trajectory and ascendancy should not be lost for the invaluable lessons it  affords us on future political campaigns for whatever objective. That a political party for almost its entire life was able to literally change British political history with No member of parliament until the very end with Carswell who has subsequently left the party is testimony to the power of extra parliamentary activity to change the face of British politics and it should not be forgotten or airbrushed away as the mainstream parties would no doubt wish it to be.

Mayoist Great Leap Backwards

The Conservative Manifesto could have been co written by Corbyn himself with its vicious attacks on business,its persecution of enterprise and its statist interventions in what is left of the market. Employees are to have representation on governing boards giving them all the benefits of ownership but none of the responsibilities and liabilities which is a recipe for chaos and breakdown of said business. Businesses will be  punitively fined for having the temerity to bring employees in from outside the country,a rabid form of economic nationalism not seen since the emergence of the Third Reich. Caps will be placed on energy prices in a flagrant statist takeover of a supposedly free market in energy which is a chimera as it is a rigged market by the state in regulations and taxation and now defacto nationalisation.

 Any businesses seeking to protect themselves from crippling taxation will be hounded and punished like common criminals rather than the engine of growth and creators of wealth and prosperity they are.

No promises have been made not to raise taxes which is like a Damocles sword hanging over all businesses and individuals creating mass uncertainty and caution over expansion plans.

Theresa May seems intent on throwing red meat to Labour voters and thinks she can take her core vote for granted and she may be correct when they survey the field for alternatives which is further proof for the need of a new pro freedom capitalist party to challenge the tories, exposing their amoral cynical opportunist unprincipled anti ideological chicanery.

Demographic Logic of Care Cost Changes

The gov is right to change the system re care costs as people are living longer and will have to make provision for costly care expenses that cannot be born by the taxpayers ie the young.But it should be phased in over decades not straight away as people were led to believe they would be taken care of and so made no provision. For the same reason if welfare was abolished it would have to be a phased change so younger people would know in advance the system had changed and factor that in to their money management over decades whilst those over say 35 who have paid into the existing system would still receive the State benefits..

Criminal Injustice System

Ian Bradey is dead and it cost the taxpayer £10 million over 50 years of incarceration many spent is a hospital as if he was mad rather than bad - and pure evil. Even when he wanted to die they would not allow it and force fed him so the legal system clearly is mad. The death penalty was the only solution for this monster and his assistant Hindley but even when this was abolished idiot religious types like Lord Longford were campaigning for Hindley's release on the grounds that she had found God and was a reformed character. Knowing how evil religious people can be and often are that would be grounds to keep her in jail, which fortunately she was.

To reduce expenses the prison system should be privatised and the inmates put to work to pay their room and board. The prisons are clearly run by criminals with the collusion of the corrupt union controlled guards and whole system should be swept away and run  on market principles at no cost to the taxpayer at all.

Liberal's Smoke and Mirrors

Kudos to the Liberals for proposing the legalisation of cannabis although it is done for unsound motives and why not all drugs and be principled about it? The drug of choice of liberals is taxation and spending and they will use the legalisation of weed to feed their habit as they intend to control it through regulation and tax. It is  not done for principled libertarian reasons therfor, but it is better than nothing. Perhaps the reason why most Liberal policies don't make sense is now revealed -they are potheads.

Return of the Red Menace

Not since 1945 has there been such an extreme left wing Labour party threatening the very foundations of a free nation with its blood curdling threat to nationalise everything and reduce the UK to the state of present day Venezuela and it is for this reason that I will be voting Conservative,something I never though I would be doing again. When a country is under existential threat one has to take extreme measures,so holding one's nose and voting for Theresa is the only option to avert this potential looming disaster of a Corbyn government.

What is dispiriting is the lack lustre non response of the Conservatives to the Red Manifesto, who seemed more interested in focusing on the shambolic way it was presented and leaked and the incompetence it betokened  rather than  the horrendous illiberal totalitarian content it comprised -this is the truly shocking thing for one expects the state neutered  and regulated broadcasting system to be non committal unlike the free press but for the party that is seeking to remain in office to have nothing to say about this extremist document beyond 'it will take us back to the 1970's' is truly shocking and is wholly consonant with my contention that ideologically Theresa May is a statist through and through with soft socialist tendencies.

Voting tory is merely a way of buying time as they will take us down the statist road at a glacial pace rather than the Corbyn gallup and hopefully a serious defeat for the latter will spell his political doom and  the Labour party itself  will take a very long time to recover from its humiliating defeat,if ever.

Is the Trump Denoument at hand?

Someone as transparently corrupt and blatant in his moral delinquency as Trump clearly is has all the hallmarks of a sociopath who is so convinced of his power to control his environment that after a while he does not even try to  any longer dissemble or conceal his misdemeanours and moral breaches but commits them in plain sight.

Surely impeachment is only a matter of time now as this out and out scoundrel and villain has overplayed his hand and his lifelong corruption and cronyism has finally caught up with him as he has sought to use his political position for personal financial gain dragging the presidency even further into the gutter than Obummer..

Blowhard Bill Blusters out

The  disgrace of Bill O Reilly was long overdue. This over rated nonentity was a shallow irritant with no discernible virtues or talent but it now turns out that he was a sad dirty old man as well. There is something particularly despicable about a man abusing his superiority in the workplace to extract sexual favours from his staff and job applicants not to mention the lamentably  incredible low self esteem in the perpetrator it betokens.

Any man who has to target vulnerable  women or those dependent upon him for employment advancement is immoral. It is the equivalent of a man taking advantage of an intoxicated or drugged woman, a physically or mentally disabled woman,a vulnerable child or a teacher with a pupil or someone who needs money in straitened circumstances such as a prostitute. It is an effective admission that the man in question cannot from normal relationships with women on his own level,his equal and has to use coercion with someone he has power over. Sad and good riddance O Reilly.

Why is only Statism in its variants on Offer?

As I have had cause to point out on numerous occasions, to the point of tedium it must be owned, statism and specifically socialism will never be buried once and for all as an ideology until the  philosophy underpinning it has been morally defeated ie altruism - the remnant of Christian belief that people pay lip service to  and politicians dog whistle to get the requisite predictable Pavlovian response from the electorate. Note here that altruism cannot be explicitly argued for as no one would sacrifice his children to the next door neighbour's children but they have enough programmed residual Christian  guilt about not living up to the altrusit 'ideal' to vote for the politicians who implictly  advance it .

It is up to those who see the immoral evil of altruism to out it,name it,expose it, to dispel the human slavish support for something that no man can live by and which any  attempt to do so can only lead to the disaster of  self immolation and the destruction of all human values.

Welcome to the Henry Ford School of Politics

You can have any political colour in this election as long as it is statist. Deepest Red Corbyn with wholesale nationalisation,Blue with Theresa who refuses  to rule out  taxes rises and plans to socialise the energy market with 1970's style price controls and in her speeches is more Mother Theresa than Maggie, orange with the liberals who are profoundly illiberal in their statism across the board and purple Ukip proffering economic protectionist nationalism a la Le Pen. Never mind a rigged market this is a rigged politics. NOA way should be the response - None of the Above.

French vote for 'Not Le Pen'

It is hard to believe that the by all accounts  nonentity  Machon who seems to think that the only thing wrong with the EU is that it is too liberal ie too free market oriented(?!) is going to be able to turn round the sluggish sclerotic under-performing French economy with Thatcherite-like reforms which will be fought,literally, on the streets by both left and right as the former only lent their vote to Machon because of fear of something worse, Le Pen.

The irony is that the left have far more in common with the protectionist policies of  Le Pen  than with the more centrist Machon but could not bring themselves to vote for her nationalist policies - although an even greater irony is that her anti immigrant position would also benefit the left in keeping out low wage earning migrants.

This cynical triangulist approach of Machon will almost inevitably crash on the rocks of political reality and then the wicked witch of nationalism  waiting patienty in the wings will swoop to victory at the next election.

More Nonsense from the Tribune of Faith

Religious nutjob Peter Hitchens claims there must be an afterlife and a God in order for there to be justice  as there is no justice here on earth in man's kingdom and the weak are always victims of the strong. How so? If a man robs or murders he will be apprehended sooner or later and serve a jail sentence -maybe not as long as Mr Hitchens or we would like but that is something that can be changed and tweaked and needs no mythical heavenly intervention to effect.

And if a man drinks heavily over a prolonged period he will invariably succumb to liver disease and die prematurely, likewise those engaged in narcotic abuse and the morbidly obese - all of these will face a kind of justice for their indulgence. Liars cheats,deceivers all pay a heavy price for their delinquency in terms of low self esteem and psychological malaise so the idea that there is no justice other than in the mythical heaven is as absurd most of what Hitchens comes out with.

Will National Socialism Triomphe in France?

A Le Pen victory tomorrow should not be discounted as she proffers a heady seductive mix of nationalism and socialism, appealing to both left and right, cutting across political affiliations, with a  nationalist virulent anti immigrant (specifically muslim) rhetoric and   a  statist socialist interventionist protectionism as well as representing  the disillusioned anti EU Frexiteers who may be more numerous than hitherto supposed. There could indeed be a political earthquake across the channel in less than 48 hours.

Religious People Say the Dumbest Things

Oddball peter Hitchens says in a talk that the two things that brought him to religious belief were reason and experience.(!?) He goes on to say that religion is responsible for civilization. In an age benighted by religious maniacs wreaking havoc around the world that is some cognitive dissonance going on in Hitchen's head.The mad islamists are behaving exactly the way Christians behaved until they underwent reformation and de fanging. What part of that blindingly obvious fact doesn't he understand?

Hitchen's was brought to faith by an ancient painting he saw in a church of sinners being sent to hell partly because the doomed looked a lot like his contemporaries and one even like himself. That's a clinching argument -a painting!

The even madder religious cultist Roy Masters said that children have to develop their egos before they become spiritual therby acknowledging that human beings require their ego to grow and develop as humans for it is what makes the world go round. Once the ego is allowed to thrive Masters comes along and trades parasitically on man's virtue ie ego to peddal his anti life anti man ideology.

Why There Can Be No Deal With Brussels

Leaving aside the risk as I alluded to of Theresa May routing her own Brexiteers in the election and doing a deal with Brussels it is more likely that there is no deal to be had as Brussels cannot allow it to be seen that the UK can flourish outside the EU for the message it sends to other skeptical countries.The only solution is to sit out the negotiations and then invoke the Wto rules or ideally to have zero tarriffs with all countries  and let the consequences follow.

 Too much energy expended on a chimera of a good deal would be folly once the nature of the EU beast is fully understood which is essentially a hostile unfriendly protectionist racket. It is for this reason that the EU is incapable of agreeing deals with countries outside it which takes years and come to nothing and as the UK will be outside the EU we will meet with the same brick wall of intransigence as are we are experiencing already.

May.chievelli routs Ukip

Kill off Ukip by pretending to be a rabid Leaver,get a tidy majority and then reveal the old Remainer underneath and do a stitchup with Brussels? Looks like the plan and it may well be effective. Ukip had two good policies of slashing foreign aid and abolishing the BBC tv licence but they look like going the way of the Mauritius dodo. Either way the public is given the bleak choice of two rival mafia gangs to choose from. The very low turn out rate, in places under 30% suggests they are beginning to rumble this obvious fact or have succumbed to a severe attack of ennui.

Return of Ideology

There is a good sign in the culture of a return to ideology after a long period where the political establishment had gathered together in a cosy consensus of mushy middle ground social democracy. Now with the advent of Bernie Sanders Trump Le Pen and Corbyn etc we have a chance to revisit the old battles that were never fully resolved even in the Thatcher era.

There is however a stubborn refusal to recognize this radical shift in politics and it is coming from the right ie conservatism.For the latter it appears to be business as usual rather like a team playing by rules that have been torn up and they haven't noticed.Theresa May is playing the Cameron Blairite role but even when the Labour party has abandoned it for socialism, making May in consequence look shifty and Corbyn principled which is an accurate characterisation.

The media is uncomfortable with this new state of affairs and is still acting as if it had not occurred,presenting Corbyn as a mad man for having the temerity to actually believe and advocate strongly for his principles in clear, totally uncompromising Thatcherite terms.They would rather concentrate on his quirky untelegenic personality and where they do attack his ideas it is for having the nerve to articulate an actual ideology.

People might contrast the principled Corbyn position with the shifty anti ideological opportunism and shallowness of May who appears to be concerned with attaining office above any guiding principle or idea. People may begin to wonder if Corbyn can argue for pure socialism why can't the tories argue for pure capitalism if it is now ok to wear one's ideology on one's sleeve.Now that would make politics interesting again and the battle of ideas could then be truly joined.

Socialism Rules

The power of socialism to still be a thing despite the millions slaughtered on its altar in the last 100 years is testimony to the power of faith over reason and the sheer emotional pull of this irrational toxic creed for this election is essentially being contested between two socialists who only disagree in degree about how much state interference there should be and even  the idea that there is any alternative to these variants of collectivism and statism is simply not on the agenda for the public's consideration such is the anti intellectual and inherently anti freedom and individual rights nature of  democracy itself.

This point is so foreign and alien to people and runs so counter to the general understanding of the purpose of the state and is practically never discussed which is testimony to the complete triumph of statism in the culture and an illustration of how incredibly difficult,daunting hard and difficult it will be to penetrate challenge and overcome it.

God Bless Checks and Balances

Trump's 100 days has illustrated that even though a president be mad as Trump undoubtedly is he can be contained in office by the traditional checks and balances and the stabilising influence of wiser counsel around him although the term wiser in this context has to be relative.

He has the mental instability of the North Korean leader but is checked by the robust institutions that go to make the political architecture of a free country and this alone has saved the country and the wider world from the ravages of an untrammelled uncontained Trump presidency.

It is to be hoped that  this state of affairs continues and the capricious attention deficit Trump will tire of his presidential role as he has already showed signs of doing and he quits before his first term is up or gets bogged down in all the investigations into his corrupt crony behaviour in office and is forced out prematurely.

Borris Bails

Borris Johnson had ample opportunity to attack Jeremy Corbyn's socialism on the Today prog with John Humphries but he did not.Why? The answer is simple.Tories cannot mount a principled spirited philosophical attack on socialism because they share its fundamental premises of my brother's keeper self sacrifice altruism.Instead of such an attack what did we get but the  characteristically tired Johnsonian knockabout ad hominem name calling.

Once again we have a general election where principles will not be discussed and personalities are to the fore. If only the electorate had the courage fortitude or just plain common sense to stay away from the polls in June and send a clear unequivocal message of none of the above to these moral and intellectual pygmies grown fat and on the public trough of emoluments we might end up with mature enlightened government.

Free Will

Most lefties reject the idea of the existence of free will in favour of determinism for obvious reasons. Free will connotes the idea of human autonomy,the ability to change one's circumstances -anathema to the left who want to posit that man has no free will and is economically socially determined and is stuck with no hope of salvation  -except through the state of course that will provide all the goods and benefits that the helpless socially determined cannot possibly attain for themselves.

Strangely enough it is the religionists who argue for free will for some reason I cannot fathom although the guru cultist Roy Masters used to say in his characteristically opaque way that there was no such thing as free will as God gave man free will knowing in advance that he would screw up and salvation consisted in recognising this fact and giving up the human will.This is an obvious contradiction but of course the religionists can explain it all away as a divine mystery.

Some liberals characteristically like to have it both ways and claim that free will and determinism are compatable which of course is nonsense. It is self evident that man has free will and to think otherwise is the preserve of mystics and liberals who characteristically tend towards the irrational.

Only Askin

Why do lefties always refer to the mixed economy as capitalist when by its very definition it is a mixture of capitalism and socialism and could therfor just as legitimately be referred to as the socialist system? More oddly why are they never challenged when they do it?

Arguments From Faith

It is interesting that the oddball pro religionist Peter Hitchens attacks atheists for holding their position in order he claims to allow themselves to be hedonists with impunity, as if there is no rational argument against God, whilst at the same time opining that he cannot stand the idea that after death is nothing and he will never see his loved ones again.A faith system based on hopes wishes and fears is hardly one that commends itself to anyone in the pursuit of truth and seems little better than one based on the infantile wish that St Claus really existed.

One cannot help but notice that although Hitchens deplores the alleged ad hominem attacks of  the modern atheists on believers he is perfectly able and willing to indulge in the ad hominems himself, seemingly oblivious of this blatant contradiction. But in the absence of any rational arguments his options in that department are indeed severely limited.

French Elections: Herpes 1 or 2?

Voting Ukip to bring about withdrawal of the UK from the EU made sense but who would want a Ukip government with its nativist,xenophobic,protectionsit anti capitalist agendas? This is not something we have to worry about as the party continues to implode spectacularly with its clownish 'leader' who bizarely and surrealy enough has apparently not even made up his mind yet whether he is even going to be  standing at the election and is prone to every gaffe, a Mr Magoo of British politics indeed.

No, we have nothing to fear but the French have as Marine edges closer to possible leadership of the country in a week. Her promise to hold a referendum of EU membership is salutary but her policies are Ukip on speed,unsavoury to the extreme. Then there is Macho an arch federalist and Anglophobe who will further entrench EU sclerotic anti democratic institutions and make negotiation over British withdrawal harder than they are already.

Tory Dirigisme

The govs plan to cap energy bills is another sign that it is anti capitalist and seeks to rig the market in the way politicians attempted to do and failed disastrously in the 70's with price controls.Its back to the Heathite future with May,the government knows best,the market isn't working properly arguments so beloved  of statists which Conservatives basically are and this provides further evidence of that fact.

 The public may wonder if all the tories can offer is failed policies of yesteryear, a sort of Corbyn lite why not go for the genuine article? Indeed I have voiced fears of a Corbyn government in past posts and still think a May shoe in on the 8th is by no means a forgone conclusion and such policies as the abovementioned will certainly not help her case.

Dr App will see you now

With the development of apps that will medically diagnose individuals and personalise their treatment and the broader applications into many fields including education this massive disintermediation will surely see the eventual end of socialised healthcare and education,thus achieving through technological innovation what ideology has hitherto failed to achieve.

The Luddites will attempt to frustrate this technological revolution but if history is a reliable guide they will fail and this will radically change the way people live and the whole political system with its collectivist anti individualistic rationale and modus vivendi will be brought into question and overturned.

Will Marie Trump All?

I have no knowledge of French politics so it would be silly to even attempt to predict the final outcome of the French election but it would be good if Le Pen became leader for the sole reason that it would probably be the final nail in the EU coffin and it would make all our vexation over leave negotiations null and void. Whether the French will make it three out of three following Brexit and Trump who knows but once again the experts are saying she could not so if I was a gambler I might be tempted to put some on Marie so unreliable are they.

Foreign Aids

With its promise to keep foreign aid spending to its present level and lack of promise not to raise taxes it is clear to all but the most purblind that the British electorate will have the invidious non choice of being screwed by either Tory taxes or Labour taxes. As Fraiser Nelson said on r4 this morning 'there is nowhere else to go'  re the tory press's gung ho support for her. Or as I would say this is how democracy works which is why it should be rejected.

Jeremy Trump

The anti establishment paranoid rant from Corbyn could have been lifted straight from the Trump handbook and who's to say it will  not resonate with all the angry pro big government section of the electorate here too? If recent trends are anything to go by the mad Marxist of Islington could well be snapping at  May's heels and overturn all media and pollster expectations once again.

Statism is the national religion so the electorate may conclude why not elect its high priest? The country will continue on its trajectory to a big state authoritarianism either way  but will just arrive at it quicker under Corbyn when the country will no doubt be twinned with Venezuela.

With the help of the Greens and the duplicitous Liberals,the SNP and Welsh there could even be a coalition of the deranged, a multicoloured nightmare all needlessly created by May herself, a woman  clearly without principles or integrity who has recklessly instigated this general election from hell.

The One Party State We're In

Well we have heard Corbyn in full Red rant this morning,the predictable hate and envy mongering of Labour but it is unlikely that May will provide much of a contrast being a left wing tory whose speech on becoming leader could have been written by any Labour member so it is going to be a depressing six weeks of bromides and plattitudes and noises from the statist quo,a two chord dirge from which it will be near impossible to escape.

O for a speech that does not appeal to the worst in people, that promises a radical reduction and pushing back of the state,a recognition or even discussion of the proper role of government, a radical uncompromising defense of freedom liberty and the only system that can deliver those things,free market unregulated capitalism.

Corbyn is right about one thing: it is a rigged system -rigged towards statist meddling, regulating and taxing. Do not expect any discussion about that in what  is now effectively a one party state -the only possible outcome of the democratic system that implicitly denies and negates individual rights.

Mayday

A record low turn out at the general election would send a clear message to the Westminster parasitic political elites - a plague on your house as they all share the same political home and there is no fundamental choice between the parties.Hubris is waiting in the wings for May and she shows herself to be very dim in actually basing her cynical decision on opinion polls of all things!

May was a continuation of Cameron,there was no break, no justification for seeking a mandate for herself,she was a Remainer like him and it was business as usual so the mandate seeking argument does not fly. No this was pure politicking and the public sense it and will probably punish her with a small majority hardly bigger than her present one - or with a hung parliament. There is a very real risk that she will be hoist on her own Heathite peturd.
