The Politically Incorrect Show - 12/05/2000

[Music - Die Fledermaus]

Good afternoon, KAYA ORAAAA & welcome to the Politically Incorrect Show on the free speech network, Radio Pacific, for Friday May 12, 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]

A brief item in yesterday's Herald sent shudders down my spine. Headed, "Poppies Unloved" it said: "Most New Zealanders see society as a pyramid, with a few tall poppies reaping rewards at the top while they toil thanklessly at the bottom. A Massey University poll found people wanted the pyramid squashed, with more for the poor & less for the rich."

Now this result might be slightly skewed, since any poll conducted by Massey University is bound to produce this sort of outcome. Massey is forever publishing surveys showing that the gap between rich & poor is getting wider, that more should be done for Maoris, that we need to embrace the policies of Leonid Brezhnev, etc.. Even so, I can accept that this finding is essentially accurate. I have no difficulty believing that most New Zealanders see society as a pyramid which should be squashed. It just goes to confirm what I have said many times, "If there has been a revolution, it hasn't been inside people's heads."

Early on in his Prime Ministership, Jim Bolger made a speech in which he said that New Zealanders needed to change their attitude to the rich & start regarding them as heroes rather than villains. He didn't write that speech, it certainly didn't reflect his personal convictions, & he quickly pulled his head in after the tumult & shouting that followed. But he was right. Anyone who gets off his chuff, creates a great new product that is enormously popular & makes a bundle should be applauded, not treated as something akin to a child-molester. Internet whiz Steve Outtrim, of Sausage Software fame, who went from being unemployed to one of the country's richest men, would be a case in point. Naturally he's gone to Australia, away from the whining retards who would treat him as an outcast for having the temerity to be successful, & demand that his wealth be confiscated for their benefit.

In a different field, star athlete John Walker was quoted recently as blaming the New Zealand education system for the lack of success by athletes over the past decade. "A lot of sports are losing out because schools tell kids it's all right to lose. They are trying to be Politically Correct by telling kids that it's not cool to win & everyone is a winner." Now we hear of a Netball New Zealand programme for 8-10-year-olds, "Future Ferns," which involves playing games where no scores are kept, so that what would otherwise have been the losing team doesn't have its feelings hurt. The tall poppy syndrome is more active than ever. We are fast approaching the world of Kurt Vonnegut's Harrison Bergeron, where above-average pupils are fitted with electronic headgear that zaps their brains to dull their brightness.

What's disgusting about the attitude of the snivelling hordes who want to "flatten the pyramid" is that they have no ambition to rise to the top - that would be just "too hard" - they want to drag those already up there down to the bottom with them. "Toil away thanklessly" indeed. Who do they think creates their jobs in the first place? Yes, it would be nice if there were more jobs right now - but the way to achieve them is to tax & regulate those who create them less (preferably not at all), not more.

Had they the wit to do so, the retards would contemplate, not a pyramid, but a towering skyscraper, in which anyone prepared to climb the stairs could enter the penthouse. As it is, they'd prefer to take the lift ... to the basement.
