I have a lot of friends in the Baby Boomer generational set even though I’m from Generation X.

Well into a pretty comfortable retirement, many Boomers now often talk about the world as if the political/cultural battles of their youth had never been victorious, ie civil rights, women’s lib, gender equity, gay rights and the consciousness revolution.

These battles that once defined the Boomer generation were soundly won and the institutions they managed to influence over the last 30 years incorporated their value systems hook, line and sinker.


Congratulations David Seymour!

Here is what we've waited so long for: a call to abolish the anti-free speech Human Wrongs Commissariat and repeal existing restrictions on freedom of speech!

New bill will protect freedom of expression

ACT New Zealand

to editor

“A new member’s bill announced this morning will strengthen protections for our most basic freedom”, ACT Leader David Seymour says.

Mr Seymour's Private Member's Bill and the Bear who let it alone

Graham Hill's picture
Submitted by Graham Hill on Tue, 2019-06-18 23:18

James Thurber’s story of the Bear Who let It Alone has this as its moral: “You might as well fall flat on your face as lean over too far backward.” The private members Bill regarding free speech is a call that necessarily and rightly brings the issue directly to the public in parliament rather than out in the commentariat. Hate speech is a hopelessly fraught political concept and does not fit with the rule of law.

New Zealistan's Thought Police

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Sun, 2019-04-28 11:28

There is now apparently an Enemies List circulating among New Zealand's totalitarian Globalist elite, such as Comrade Ardern, Comrade Andrew Little, Comrade Winston Peters and new Human Wrongs Commissar Comrade Paul Hunt, a lackey of raving anti-Semite and hard-core socialist Comrade Jeremy Corbyn, all advancing the agenda of the most evil man on the planet, George Soros. (Why was this Islamo-Marxist fascist Hunt brought over to destroy our Bill of Rights?! At whose expense?!) From many accounts police are actively harassing people on this list. Our police have become, quite literally, the Thought Police of George Orwell's 1984 and contemporary Communist China.

'1984' Revisited

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Sun, 2018-07-01 05:54

I've added 1984 to the books I'm currently reading or, as in this case, re-reading. I'm astonished anew at how prescient it was. (Also refreshing, after Dostoevsky and Hugo, to encounter a writer who just gets on with it.) I assume everyone here is acquainted with it, so every day will just add a direct quote without commentary. This one is apposite in light of today's demonstrations by mindless leftist thugs:

Dear Supporter,

Is calling a politician the name of a fairy tale character worthy of Police action?

Saving Free Speech from Profa

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Tue, 2018-11-27 00:23

It was reassuring to read on WhaleOil about a new organisation called Advance Australia which humans are joining "to make sure their beloved country doesn’t succumb to rampant radicalism or political correctness" of the kind viciously promoted by the Soros-funded group GetUp. We could do with something like Advance Australia in New Zealand, where sub-humans—biological humans who nonetheless renounce reason and repair to force—are attempting to end free speech at every turn. They are our local Antifa, except that Antifa should be called (and will be by me henceforth) "Profa" because they are pro-fascist. In their behaviour, appearance and mindless malice they are the modern-day version of Mussolini's Blackshirts. In their beliefs they are Islamo-Marxists, which makes them fascists also.

The International Union for Muslim Scholars (IUMS) has called on non-Muslim countries to ban Islamophobia, following the killing of dozens of people on a deadly attack on two mosques in New Zealand.

“IUMS calls on non-Muslim countries to ban the spread of hatred against Islam and Muslims,” IUMS President Ahmed al-Raisouni said in a statement at the conclusion of a 2-day session held in Istanbul on Friday.

I have a better idea. Why don't all countries require all people—citizens, non-citizen residents or visitors—within their jurisdiction, as a prerequisite for being within their jurisdiction, to sign the following pledge:

"Just as I reserve the right to hold and express my opinions on any matter whatsoever, I promise to respect the right of all others to do the same. I renounce unreservedly the use of coercion and violence in the promotion of my opinions."

The Ayn Rand Institute's Altruism as Appeasement

In the last decade, or longer, the Ayn Rand Institute (ARI) has veered sharply to the political and cultural left. This sad reality has been documented on this blog and elsewhere. During this period these Obleftivists have sought moral sanction and social acceptance from the enemies of the American people (academia, Soviet Valley, globalist corporations, the media).

... In the 1989 Post profile Perigo expressed concerns about the depth of debate he was able to elicit on television: "we’ve become a sort of society where people don't analyse an argument: they attach brandnames to people who proffer arguments and think that they’ve dealt with the argument that way". In 1993 he infamously abandoned the medium, claiming that TVNZ news and current affairs was "braindead", and that stories of celebrities and trapped cats had superseded politics.

Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Thu, 2016-12-29 04:25

Undeniably, the biggest events of 2016, seismic in their enormity, were Brexit and the election of Donald Trump. Because of those two events, for the first time in eight years we could say that Western Civilisation had rallied to mount a rearguard action against The Anti-West, aka Islamo-Marxism, aka The Filth. The latter were in pouting, infantile retreat, alternately sullen and hysterical, unable to comprehend that the seeming hegemony of their loathsome, totalitarian world view was not invincible after all.

"The emotion involved in art is not an emotion in the ordinary meaning of the term. It is experienced more as a 'sense' or a 'feel,' but it has two characteristics pertaining to emotions: it is automatically immediate and it has an intense, profoundly personal (yet undefined) value-meaning to the individual experiencing it.
