The Politically Incorrect Show - 16/02/2000
[Music - Die Fledermaus]
Good afternoon, Kaya Oraaa & welcome to the Politically Incorrect Show on the free speech network, Radio Pacific, for Wednesday February 16, proudly sponsored by Neanderton Nicotine Ltd, the show that says bugger the politicians & bureaucrats & all the other bossyboot busybodies who try to run our lives with our money; that stands tall for free enterprise, achievement, profit, & excellence, against the state-worshippers in our midst; that stands above all for the most sacred thing in the universe, the liberty of the human individual.
[Music up, music down!]
Regular caller "Jim" upset some professional Maoris & other bludgers yesterday when he asserted that the reason for the upsurge in the new socialist government's popularity was the extra money it has given out to beneficiaries in a country where there are so many sucking on the state tit. He further observed that since the number will continue to rise, this government will probably remain in power for ever. It's a sobering thought. Beneficiaries constitute nearly half the voting population. If they vote en masse for the parties that promise them the greatest amount of Other People's Money, those parties will be on the treasury benches indefinitely, or at least until such time as the economy collapses under the weight of their unsustainable cannibalism.
"Beneficiary-bashing" is the charge levelled at anyone who challenges this cannibalism - it is axiomatic, apparently, that some people have a right to the earnings of others & anyone who asserts otherwise is a monster. Well, I own up to being a "monster," proudly. There is no such thing as a right to someone else's earnings. There IS such a right as the right to protect your earnings from the welfare cannibals who would plunder them.
Philosopher David Kelley, in his book, A Life of One's Own, draws the distinction between real "liberty rights" & bogus "welfare rights" as follows:
"Liberty rights leave individuals responsible for living their own lives & meeting their own needs, & they provide the freedom to carry out those responsibilities. Individuals are free to act on the basis of their own judgement, to pursue their own ends, & to use & dispose of the material resources they have acquired by their efforts. Those rights reflect the assumption that individuals are ends in themselves, who may not be used against their will for social purposes. Welfare rights are based on a conception of individuals as inextricably rooted in their communities, with rights to the resources of those communities. Such rights do not leave individuals fully responsible for achieving the things they need or want. Nor do they permit the kind of autonomy implied by the idea of individuals as ends in themselves. The resources of the community include the productive abilities of its individual members, abilities on which other individuals have enforceable claims. In short, liberty rights reflect an individualist political philosophy that prizes freedom, welfare rights a communitarian or collectivist one that is willing to sacrifice freedom."
I say the "liberty rights" as described here are "real" because they are based on the FACT that man's mind is his means of survival; "welfare rights" are "bogus" because they are based on force, which is a negation of the mind. New Zealand's big problem is that the term "rights" for our sheeple, especially Maori sheeple, means "welfare rights." "Liberty rights," to the extent that the sheeple even grasp the concept, fill most of them with horror.
This is where & why a revolution is necessary. A real revolution, not some half-baked reforms by pragmatists echoing the welfare cannibals' purported objective, prattling on about the greater good of the greater number.
In the meantime, those handouts, rather like Ol' Man River, will just keep rollin' on.
