The Politically Incorrect Show - 01/09/2000

[Music - Die Fledermaus]

Good afternoon, KAYA ORAAAA & welcome to the Politically Incorrect Show on the free speech network, Radio Pacific, for Friday September 1, 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]

Wednesday evening, via e-mail, I received the following cry from the heart, typical of many who cherish what remains of their freedom but are too paralysed by fear & frustration to do anything about it:

"Dear Lindsay

"You advise us every day to be true to ourselves. However, I find when I look into myself, at my deepest inner thoughts, not the freedom-loving individual I present to the outside world. I find not the person who would not initiate force against another individual, nor the person who believes in let live and let live. I look into myself and find anger and hatred. Hatred for the people who tell me what I should be doing, hatred for the people who tell me what I should be thinking. Hatred for all those who stand in my way of pursuing the meagre happiness I think I deserve.

"I am probably hated myself, for I am white, single, young and successful. For that I am punished. Punished by society, and by authority. Punished in the form of excessive taxes and in the form of MY OPINION DOESN'T COUNT. I wish there was somebody I could shout at and say, MY OPINION COUNTS.

"I have NEVER been outspoken - it simply was not the way I was brought up.

"You ask me to be true to myself. If I am to be true to myself then I would take up arms against my oppressors, I would initiate war against freedom- suppressing individuals, I would do harm to those people who wish to regulate me, I would become Hitler himself if I were able and gas those very people who try to stifle that fire of life which burns within me. I would easily become that which I hate so much in the name of freedom and liberty.

"So you tell me, do I do that? Or do I continue as I do every day just pretending that all this political correctness crap will just go away and common sense will prevail?

"So to my own self I am NOT true. I continue to be NOT outspoken. But I am torn between what I know is right and what the country is today. What can I do? I am only one."

To this young man & the countless others out there like him I reply: the answer is self-evident from your own pleadings. Start BEING true to yourself. Start BEING outspoken. Be proud of your success, & loud in your contempt for those who punish you for it. Be proud also of your anger - it is what you SHOULD feel towards your oppressors - and harness it as emotional fuel in your quest for freedom. Do not use your upbringing as an excuse for the inertia that empowers your oppressors to go on oppressing you. Take heart that it is not yet, & may never be, necessary to take up arms, to use retaliatory force against those who have initiated it against you. You are still free to raise your voice - raise it, & inflame it with the fire that burns within. Your opinion does count. You are one, but you are not alone. BE that one, & remember - WE are many. To thine own self be true - & our day will come.
