The Politically Incorrect Show - 16/11/2000

[Music - Die Fledermaus]

Good afternoon, Kaya Oraaa & welcome to the Politically Incorrect Show on the free speech network, Radio Pacific, for Thursday November 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!]

This is the last day of the working week for me - tomorrow we regular presenters are being spirited away by our bosses to an undisclosed destination, possibly a ship with a long plank. So I want to end the week as I normally would on a Friday, on a note of inspiration. MY biggest inspiration comes from youngsters rising above the statist propaganda they are fed & switching on to the ideas promoted on this programme. I received an e-mail from one such the other day:

"Greetings Mr Perigo,

"Last Wednesday I finished my last university exam for the year - stage 2 Management, perhaps the most politically correct load of crap that ever graced an institution of higher learning. I strode confidently out of my exam and lit up a celebratory joint (university being the only sanctuary I have to exercise my own PERSONAL choice, that is until the government finally gets round to legalising and deregulating the stuff).

"After finishing off the joint, I lit up a cigarette and decided to take a leisurely walk around the university grounds as an insignificant final salute to the place for the year. I stopped at several points along the way to admire the vast flora festooned within parts of the university grounds.

"However, at several other points throughout my constitutional, I paused to stare, with a highly critical eye, at other parts of the university, notably the Maths and Physics building and the Student Union building. How the aesthetics of these buildings could not utterly repulse the eye of any beholder is absolutely beyond my comprehension. What a sad legacy the nanny state is bestowing upon our children and grandchildren - the result of government administration of tertiary education.

"There is only one solution and it is blindingly obvious: privatise every university, wananga, technical institute etc etc. in the country. Thereby it will be in the private owners' best interests to keep their universities at the highest standards possible (in terms of both architecture and educational quality) as a means of competing with their rival counterparts in an open marketplace.

"Simple - private ownership and competition are the catalysts for positive change, whereas state ownership and safety-netting remain the perpetuators of educational inadequacy. And the fact that our government continues to ignore these basic facts and put their backward, economically and socially damaging ideologies before the real needs of their citizens is testament to not only the shabbiness of my chosen learning institution, but also in the bigger picture to the declining state of New Zealand society - a society where true freedom remains a social myth.

"Anyway, love your show, love your magazine, love your vision. Let us continue the fight to free our nation from the shackles of socialist tyranny and the constraints of political correctness!"
