The Politically Incorrect Show - 21/02/2001

[Music - Die Fledermaus]

Good afternoon, Kaya Oraaa & welcome to the Politically Incorrect Show on the free speech network, Radio Pacific, for Wednesday February 21, 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!]

It's fun getting hate-mail. It tells me that I'm getting under the skin of the dregs who vote for the dregs who rule us. Just the other day I had an e-mail from some savages who said they had plans for me, presumably involving a cooking pot or a hangi spit. Then, yesterday, this e-mail awaited me:

"I am proud to be part of the census, and yet I am actively involved in a large number of dissident and reform Issues. Your heroic anti-statements are now issued mindlessly without analysis of the need for a state or any of its actions. What is your party really doing apart from issuing bad-tempered press releases?

"One wonders if you would call a policeman if some crim was attacking your property. Of course you would!

"Like most of the NZ elite (real or pretentious), you do not like the idea of planning as it requires tiresome tasks such as  collection and analysis of data. I suppose having a radio show where the main requirement of the job is a quickfire ability to put down the caller would lead you to eventually develop the megalomania required to launch and maintain a political party based on the assumption that the majority are a bunch of idiots who need to be told how to think.

"I look forward to your name appearing in the paper as part of an ongoing court case based on your refusal to submit a census return."

Well, I've already explained that I'm not going to court over this - my statement of protest, which I invite everybody else to use also, is on my web site: And I have said many times that policing is a proper government function, so I'm not quite sure where my e-mailer has been all the time this programme has been on air. Moreover, unlike his heroes, the politicians & bureaucrats & all other parasites, I am NOT telling other people what to think - I'm simply asking that they leave me alone, just as I leave THEM alone. As for being part of "the NZ elite" - that's certainly news to me, & to the "elite" I'm sure!

Happily, it's not just dregs who e-mail me. This one awaited me yesterday also:

"Hi lindsay ....    Enjoy listening to your show. Have followed politics from way back, & after sixty-odd years of listening to desperate vote seekers, I am convinced the libertarian principle is the best option for all of us.  I regret to say that I have doggedly voted for my Nat local MP & of course - the ACT party vote. Thinking that you guys wouldn't have a show. I have changed that approach since hearing your talk some time back, re wasted votes. I realise now if there's enough of us, it's going to count. So you can count on my support for future. I sense a growing mood for fundamental change (re the way our country is run).  Keep up the good work. The libertarian philosophy is getting through."
