Is a basic Income ok?

No, it is paying people for existing and very immoral. It is welfare on stilts and whilst it is a massive simplification of an extremely complex unwieldy cumbersome Byzantine bureaucratic multi duplicating wasteful welfare system  and therefor as such, an improvement, the idea of unearned income still remains fundamentally immoral and evil.

It is based on the profoundly erroneous concept of  scarcity sustainability and limits to growth theory as though the stuff that can be produced is finite and human beings will cease to be productive beyond a certain point as they will run out of resources and ideas. All of human history has proved this to be a groundless fallacy as endless inventions and innovations ensure that no such limit to human creativity has ever or will ever occur just as long as human beings continue to think and innovate.

New forms of work will evolve, new jobs appear and the end of work and creativity will remain the apocalyptic and armageddon fantasy of statists with no clue about human creativity and its limitless potential.

Is Tax on Ai Robots Ok

No, it s a tax on intellectual property and the creators of artificial intelligence have brought huge value, efficiency, innovation,creativity and genius to bear on discovering and inventing the technology that allows tremendous exponential improvements in productivity to business and industry and for that sin they are to be punished with swingeing taxation?

This would be a tax on creativity and genius and makes as much sense as taxing the inventor of the tractor for reducing the workforce on the land and raising productivity a thousandfold.

Intellectual property is a vital component of the capitalist system where virtual reality plays an essential role in the economy and a tax on that is a tax on man's mind and creativity. Taxing robots sounds seductively appealing  to the unthinking because it implies it is not a tax on a human being but a souless robot and machine but as the robot and artificial intelligence is the brain child of human being it is every bit as much a tax on humans as the traditional taxation but in a sense it is worse as the amount of effort, brainpower and genius that went in to creating this amazing revolutionary invention involve heroic acts of supreme intellectual genius  such that it should be respected all the more that the brawn of a million drone workers merely repeating the learned and taught motions of others.

Common Fallacy surrounding 'Big Tech' Platforms

Why do people think Facebook, Twitter and Google etc are the public property of their users? Because it is a platform with public access they mistakenly view it as a public service taking umbrage if their account is suspended or deleted due to content issues and whine they are being censored forgetting only the state has such powers.

Is a publisher who decides to no longer publish an author censoring them? Is a company that hires out buildings for venues censoring an act they refuse to host deeming it hostile or counter to their business ethos? Is a newspaper that refuses to carryarticles from a particular columnist censoring them?These are not state actors but privately owned and run companies with fully protected property rights.

 Facebook etc invariably do not charge for the use of their platforms and yet get endless vilification from ungrateful users with serious entitlement issues.Whether it be a physical location or one in virtual reality property rights and intellectual rights still apply and the principle holds no matter what some concrete bound mentalities assert to the contrary.

Why do Businessmen make terrible politicians

They fail to transition and grasp the fundamental difference between the public and private sphere, the difference between business and politics and exercise arbitrary personal whim in public life as if the State were their personal fiefdom subject to random dictat.

Participation in the private sphere is voluntary, the public not and due restraint is therfor required in the latter to assure an absence of duress force and coercion which the businessman turned politician fails to recognize rendering them authoritarian and despotic, impatient and contemptuous of pesky things like individual rights, focusing instead entirely on outcomes to their gargantuan grandiose statist projects and programmes, riding roughshod over liberties in the process.

Why is Religion the greatest man made evil in human history

Because it was the first totalitarian system from which all subsequent ones were spawned. Communism, Fascism, Socialism, Mixed Economy, Welfarism, Compte Altruism, are all the projeny of religion without which they would have been stillborn. Minus the dynamic and imprimatur of the religious altruist imperative, the sacrifice of Self to others, the alter, the authoritarian absolute state commanding total acquiescence would never have gained any traction.

The rein of terror of Dark Ages mysticism prefigured and provenanced all the 20th century totalitarian horrors and its altruist ethos remains potent and animates politics to this day.

Does Christianity Still pose a threat to individual rights and liberty

Yes, observe the anti abortion legislation in the US - a country which expressly enshrined the separation of church and state in its constitution. The church as we can see was defanged but not reformed, the old ugly nature remained the same, it was merely stripped of its political power. Or so we thought..  Its old despotic nature is alive and well and ready to start controlling women and their reproductive organs all over again.

Make no mistake, the greatest man made evil of all time, Religion is making a comeback, is on the march again  whether it be Christianity or Izlam (piss be upon it) and its totalitarian ambitions are undimned by the passing centuries and the trail of blood havoc and corpses left behind in its inhuman and barbaric depredations

Who are the Drug Prohibitionsts

Those with authoritarian statist inclinations, invariably of a religious persuasion - it goes with the territory. Observe their causal blase disregard and scorn they display for individual rights as they advocate invasive state action against the personal  choices of individuals and enlist state power to control what a person ingests injects or inhales. Your body belongs to the state is the implicit message they dare not make explicit, which would expose their totalitarian disposition.

Just as the earlier evangelical missionary prohibitionists the anti drug are driven by religious zealotry and should be disavowed as the puritan Dark Ages atavists they are.

Why are UK business groups so cravenly pro EU

They are Brussels funded and captured and like being part of the highly protectionist EU bloc which insulates them from competition from beyond its borders  in a rigged and fixed market.

If they were for free trade and capitalism they would be speaking up and daily issuing grave warnings about the imminent and very real threat of a Marxist Corbyn Labour government but they have said nothing,zero, nada.

Business may once in the mists of time have been pro free market capitalism but today's average businessman is a pathetic co opted subsidised statist hireling mouthing pro big government propaganda, shilling for the state. (Ref any Cbi spokesman). They do not advocate for capitalism but its complete abandonment.

Should the Bbc interview Extinction rebellion spokespersons

No, they are a terrorist organization threatening to use violence to close down  an airport and prevent hundreds of thousands of people going about their business and by giving them a platform the Bbc is complicit and party to an act of terrorism and should have its licence revoked and be closed down.

The eco terrorist group has further threatened to use drones at airports which is a threat to mass murder and they should be arrested immediately, charged and prosecuted under the terrorist act.

Violence is the use of force and blocking people's path and preventing them from free movement is an act of violence and the very antithesis of 'peaceful protest' and to mischaracterize it thus is Orwellian and speaks to the totalitarian nature of the Extinction Rebellion movement.

Is fake News a valid term

Yes just listen to any Bbc news content with everything filtered thru a leftist context whether it be news bulletins or comment. What is prioritized as news, how it is graded and hierachized, the slant, the spin, the emphasis and interpretation placed upon it, the intonation and inflexion of voice, what is included, what  is omitted, who is invited to comment, with what regularity, how they are interviewed, how many times interrupted and talked over, the cordiality or hostility with which they are addressed and treated etc.

There are a thousand ways bias and prejudice, tendentiousness and partiality can be expressed and conveyed, agendas manifest themselves and find expression.

In a commercial broadcaster liberal left views would often struggle for market share but as the Bbc is funded by a State mandated co opted public license system that is no obstacle to its relentless 24\7 left-pushing agendas.

Why are most Conservatives Statist

They are invariably paternalist, usually religious and have swallowed altruism whole and cannot consequently take an ethical moral stand against its corollary and political expression of Welfare.

Being Christian such Conservatives have authoritarian impulses and will lean to totalitarian positions on such things as drugs prohibition and anti abortion and fully endorse strict curbs on the free market such as taxation and oppressive regulation, instigate vast state infrastructure programmes, defend socialized healthcare, anti trust measures, the creation of numberless government industry watchdogs quangoes, oppose mergers and acquisitions, stifle business, rein it in and bolster the mixed economy fully convinced they are doing God's work protecting the poor and vulnerable from unchecked rampant capitalism.

This is typical leftist Conservatism, its near universal orthodoxy which in all essentials is indistinguishable form leftist socialist statism.

How to identify a Statist

They love to collectivize the achievements of individuals and others with such statements as 'we as a country are great at technological innovation and scientific research'  brazenly appropriating such skills and talents to themselves, as if it were their's, as if politicians in reality did anything  other than stifle and frustrate such genius with taxation, regulation and a thousand other obstructive legislative statist measures.

Such is the essence of a parasite which is what politicians are. They take the achievements of others, bask in their reflected glory then steal the fruits of their labours thru taxation to buy the votes of welfare bums. They are the Salieri to the innovator's Mozart.

Why do people think Anti Trump is Left wing?

It is a common trap and would be quite comical were it not so serious as trump's economic policies have way  more in common with those of Bernie Sanders than the average Republican's.Such is the power of emotionalism and tribalism to blind people to reality and it is very key to note that those arguing for a return to masculine values are the biggest cry babies ever, whining that feminism has stolen their manhood and the Chinese their jobs and begging big government to enact statist protectionist policies and tariffs to keep them in an old dead rust belt industry forever because of their infantile entitlement mentality.

Co dependence on the state and emotional incontinence are the hallmarks of Trump fandom and to criticize it is left wing! Yeah, right. If this is not cultist behaviour I do not know what is.

Religion: The last refuge of the scoundrel

When politicians invoke religion to justify and inform  their actions and policies you can see authoritarianism rearing its obscene and ugly face. Tho two are indivisible, the one the handmaiden of the other. Its no accident that when religion was at its zenith was the dark ages and it wielded merciless totalitarian power and woe betide anyone who challenged its premises and principles as they would be subject to the most barbaric and inhuman punishments and death.

Now religion is invoked by sociopaths and scoundrels like Trump and Kavanagh -both serial abusers of women who want to tell them how they should live their lives, what they can and cannot do with their bodies, claiming that their womb is the property of the state not their own. If miscreants, sexual deviants and bad ass psychos like the above get to rule and use religion to justify their arbitrary dictats America will become another dysfunctional theocracy with mad Conservative mullahs dictating women's reproductive cycles and lives, a dark age mystical priest ridden tyranny.

Why would the religious right ally with a boasting sexual offender like Trump? Because they are Christian fascists who use force and faith as social control.

America was founded on a separation of Church and State and those who seek to join them back together again are profoundly anti American and in criminal violation of constitutional rights. They are now back with a vengeance and they need to be fought or as we have seen in recent judicial developments re abortion America will be lost and become a Christian Iran.

What will be Donald Trump's Legacy

The belief that big government is good, (make the state great again), authoritarianism gets things done, you can and should do deals with evil people, control of the free press is desirable, libel laws to close down criticism are good, bullying and crudity is ok, protectionism and tarriffs, not free trade works,  the mixed economy, economic nationalism and statism is best for America not capitalism, nativism is good, immigration bad, blustering bufoonery and posturing is presidential, flip flopping and changing principle and policy on the fly from one day to the next and lying is fine as is having a hair trigger temper and the emotional intelligence of a three year old.

The fact that none of Trump's fanboys can see any of this proves we are dealing with a cult and they are its glassy eyed adherents and acolytes. Presidency as the cult of personality. He has trashed the presidency and whilst he is not a dictator or even yet a crypto fascist he has set America  on that path and smoothed the way for the genuine article. The rest is just a matter of time

Why is the Labour Party riven with anti semitism

It has been captured by the far left  who are anti capitalism and associate it with jewry usury and banking. This is why they are also very pro Islam which forbids usury and is also anti semitic. Labour plans to regulate and rein the banks in even more than they are now and it is  little known that the post war socialist Labour government  nationalized the bank of England and turned it a central bank enabling all subsequent governments to manipulate, corrupt, debase and debauch the currency accumulating huge debts to buy votes with pledges and promises on vast welfare spending and massively expanding the state's remit.

Anti semitism attempts to disguise its identity and ugly racist nature under the rubric of anti Zionism but this is a mere figleaf, transparent in its deception and is anti semitism in all but name,using the identical latter's arguments but flying under  false colours.

What is the purpose of a Mayoralty

Mayors are designed to aggrandize local government and the post tends to attract chancers and grandstanders of political pull who preen and strut peacock-fashion over their petty thiefdoms. Like a state within a state, another useless tier of government, mayoralties resemble the mafia in their depredations and stranglehold on commerce and trade but with the added panoply of bureaucratic obfuscation to stifle economic growth with stultifying socialist controls,regulations and taxes.

The present London incumbent Kahn typifies the pathology of the species, exhibiting all the worse traits and characteristics of unchecked statism: narcissism, malevolence, nihilism. The corruption of local government finds its full expression in the mayoralty and it should be abolished.

Will the Establishment survive a No Brexit outcome

Not in its present form or only in the short term. If people think democracy is no longer working or does not do what it says on the tin all the institutions that argued for Remain will be regarded as suspect, corrupt, amoral and untrustworthy with diminished status and destroyed reputation.

Political instability can be expected and a mass gravitation to extremes which could lead to greater authoritarianism than exists presently with people opting for a 'strong man' who 'gets things done', a Putin or Trump.

Instead of choosing smaller government which would be the logical reaction to oppressive statism past conditioning will sadly lead them perversely to upping the poison and electing for more state control over their lives rather than less; a depressing and regrettable but all too familiar syndrome.

WW11 Groundhog Day

Why does the UK fetishize its WW2 victory with seeming endless memorialising and self valorisation? The US bailed Britain out of two world wars but the second is surrounded in folklore chiefly due to the cult of Churchill the arch mythologiser with extraordinary albeit dubious skills of oratory and self promotion.

Promptly after the war he was rejected by the fickle electorate in favour of the Labour party who promised bread and circuses and ushered in an English socialism not dissimilar in essentials to the German Socialism it had sacrificed blood and treasure to defeating the last six years leading to the welfare state and making British subjects less free than they were before the war.

Communism was the true victor of WW2 and the Soviets were Western allies so it was an inglorious pyrrhic victory for Britain which has been glossed over with cloying sentiment and propaganda to the present day.

Britain was bankrupt after the war languishing years in poverty, emiseration and subsistence rationing and got a humiliating bailout/loan from the US which was unconstitutional foolish and ill advised as it was promptly squandered and frittered away on the Welfare State by the Labour government.

Hitler planned a European Union which was enacted by his victors rendering WW2 futile on its own terms. Claims that the EU was a bulwark against the risk of future Fascism has been embarrassingly refuted by the emergence of far Right movements across the EU.

Abstracting the Churchill cult of personality and the self congratulation WW2 achieved little and cost much for the victors.

The nauseating orgy of anniversary marking that keeps on being played out should actually be banned as it is is criminal waste of taxpayers money and a way of distracting from the statism and oppressive collectivism that the UK polity is now characterized  by and merely allows our political pygmies to channel Churchill in a hopeless attempt to bask in  distant glories and  the fading glow of his questionable triumphs and larger than life character.

What's wrong with Jordan Peterson?

Leaving aside all his virtues, communication skills as a brilliant speaker and entertainer his major flaws are his emotionalism, his religious premises -the two are closely connected as religious belief is emotionalism - and again associated with those two things, his morbid malevolent world view which colours and informs his whole schtick.That is to say his message is life is hell here's how you can make it better.No matter how great his instruction on how to make it better is, how trenchant the insights and psychological analysis are if it is based on a false foundation it is a house built on sand.

His emotionalism is particularly bad and he not infrequently brings himself to the verge of tears,his voice shaky with emotion making an embarrassing spectacle leaving a question mark over his mental stability. This is tied up with his religiosity which is not overt but more insidious and sinuous but still based on unreason and emotionality.

His analysis of the left is good and he is always worth listening to but ultimately a flawed thinker undone by his religious emotionalism and his work will have little if any lasting value.
