The most offensive thing about contemporary public debate is that it’s deemed to be so offensive to cause offence!

Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Sun, 2007-07-29 21:27

[Featured in this week's edition of the Victoria University student magazine, Salient]

To paraphrase my favourite author, Ayn Rand, the world is perishing from an orgy of airheadedness.

Hitchens on Saddamite Scum Galloway

Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Sat, 2007-07-28 04:56

"The mills of justice grind with maddening slowness, but they do at least grind." Hitchens presents the latest findings on Saddamite scum George Galloway, MP, currently in New Zealand, whose minders surprisingly declined our kind invitation for him to appear on my show.

Anyone remember how many rejections The Fountainhead got? Undoubtedly it would be worse now, when only Lois Cook-type nonsense is guaranteed publication. But Ayn should be resting easy.

We can be thankful in the wake of the botched bombings in Britain by Islamofascist filth that the filth on this occasion was as incompetent as it is evil.

Seven Lively Virtues!

Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Tue, 2007-07-10 07:08

In my article, Seven Deadly Sins (Linz Sinz), I listed seven character traits whose practitioners occupy the lowest rung of hell in my personal cosmology—gratuitous and premature umbrage-taking in this, the Age of Umbrage; dilettantism; solipsism; cowardice; the misuse of humour; “Attention Deficit Disorder”; and hypocrisy.

SOLOC 5 Postponed

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Tue, 2007-07-03 21:44

Sorry about doing this yet again, but as the conference date conflicts with my upcoming radio gig Kelly and I have decided to postpone SOLOC 5. I suggested carrying on without me but in the end we both decided it would be better to wait. We'll put Kelly's groundwork to good use in Atlanta in due course. Stay tuned. Apologies for the inconvenience.

A Constitution for New Freeland—Preamble

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Tue, 2007-07-03 21:22

Click here for the full constitution.

When in the course of human affairs it becomes necessary for citizens to break the political chains that have hitherto bound them, and to reclaim the individual sovereignty which is their birthright, it can be opportune for them to declare the causes which have impelled them to self-liberation. We, the freedom-loving citizens of New Zealand, choose to do so at this epoch-making moment.

Aussies KASS Kiwis

The Aussie Wallabies gave the Kiwi All Blacks a lesson in KASS tonight, coming back from a first-half deficit to win by 21 points to 15. The Aussies played like SOLOists, the ALL Blacks like a combined ARI-KASSless Society side.

SOLO Press Release—It's Not Your Body, Adolf Anderton!

The Socialist Republic of Aotearoa-New Zealand's descent into full-blown tyranny, fresh from its straitjacketing of journalists, cameramen and photographers covering proceedings in the Republic's Reichstag, accelerated further today with the announcement by Associate Health Minister Adolf Anderton that BZP, the active ingredient in party pills, will be made illegal from next year.

Nanny-NZ, in the form of Associate Health Minister Adolf Anderton has just announced a ban on party pills containing BZP. There'll be street protests against this fascism for sure. I'd encourage Kiwi SOLOists to take part. Stay tuned for details.

KASSing Up—New Staff!

SOLO has been in cruise mode for some time now, not to mention bruise mode from some of the pitched battles that have gone on. The bruising will no doubt continue, given the open, pan-factional and uncensored nature of the board, and the cruising is fine as far as it goes, but it doesn't go far enough.
