The Politically Incorrect Show - 05/08/1999

Music - Die Fledermaus

Good afternoon, Kaya Oraaa & welcome to the Politically Incorrect Show on the free speech network, Radio Pacific, for Thursday August 5, proudly sponsored by Tuariki Tobacco 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!

Well folks, there's nothing for it. I can talk will I'm blue in the face about individual self-government, but most of you I know continue to want Nanny State to run your lives. So here's the deal today. We'll divide the country into two. You Nanny Statists can have the North Island, we individualists the South Island. The North Island will be renamed the People's Republic of Aotearoa; the South Island will be called the Republic of New Freeland.

In the People's Republic of Aotearoa, PRA, most people will work for the "guvamint," as so many of its talkback devotees from the British Karl Marx Society like to pronounce it. Lord Montrose of Drury will be President for Life, & Sir Twopenny O'Really his Vice-President for Life. The guvamint will be a coalition of the existing main parties, to be called the Collectivist Party. No other parties will be permitted because they might hurt someone's feelings. Telephones will revert to guvamint ownership & the dispossessed Telecom's managers put on trial for profiteering. Profits will be illegal in the PRA. Everyone will be paid the same, & taxed at 50%. Imports will attract a standard 50% tariff, immigration will be confined to people unable to support themselves, & foreign investment will be prohibited. EVERYTHING in the PRA will be either illegal or compulsory. Coffee, tea, red meat, tobacco & alcohol will be added to the list of prohibited substances. All forms of private education will be banned; the guvamint will require all children to be "educated" by it from the age of three. All citizens will be required to learn Maori; after two years the speaking of English will be a punishable offence. All forms of private health care will be banned, & the People's Republic of Aotearoa will become one giant mental asylum rather similar to the present New Zealand, only more so. No one will be permitted to leave.

In New Freeland, the guiding principle shall be, each person is the owner of his or her life & may live it as he or she chooses, & will be required to respect the self-ownership of others. Nothing will be illegal except acts that violate the self-ownership of others. There will be no tax, no welfare state, no tariffs, no subsidies, no restrictions on the movement of people in & out of the country, no government-mandated national currency, no government interference in the economy or anything else unless there's an issue of individual rights involved. People will be free to earn - and keep - whatever anyone is prepared to pay them. Telecom will be welcome but will not be protected by the government from competition. Government will exist solely to protect people's rights, including their right to SELF-defence. Parents will be free to educate their own children as they see fit, but not at the expense of other parents or non-parents unless that is voluntarily agreed to by the latter. And of course, there will be no government involvement in health - each self-governing individual will make his own decisions about his own health.

I could say more, but I'm sure you get the picture. My question for you today - which do you choose: the Politically Correct People's Republic of Aotearoa or the Politically Incorrect Republic of New Freeland? 309 3099.
