Re: James Valliant

Like many of you I was saddened at the departure of my friend James Valliant from SOLO. I've been in touch with him and Casey Fahy privately looking for a way to settle the dispute between us in a way that doesn't compromise either side or threaten to put a dampener on the robustness of debate that goes on here at SOLO.

The Perils of Infamy

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Wed, 2007-05-23 08:14

I snuk out an hour or so ago to grab a bottle of Yellow Tail from the nearby dairy. Sporting a Mario Lanza T-shirt and a pair of baggy shorts with my knobbly knees showing, I figured I probably looked even more eccentric than usual. But it was dark and I thought I'd get away with it without frightening the horses or triggering a civil emergency.

A Lesson in Friendship from the Bain/Karam Case

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Fri, 2007-05-11 07:33

For the benefit of non-Kiwi SOLOists, David Bain, who was convicted in 1995 for the murder of several family members and has been in jail ever since, has just had his conviction quashed by the Privy Council in London. His guilt was clearly not established "beyond reasonable doubt" at the time, but a jury that had little grasp of that concept found him guilty nonetheless.

Reprise: Seven Deadly Sins

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Thu, 2007-05-10 22:44

Someone whose name I probably ought to remember once said that the road to freedom is replete with annoying bastards. I’ve had my fill of annoying bastards recently—and rather than let some perfectly good exasperation go to waste, I’ve decided to set down for the record precisely what it was that annoyed me, for the edification of lovers of reason and freedom everywhere.

Reprise (celebrating recent events in France)—The French Paradox, American Angst ... and NOSA

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Wed, 2007-05-09 03:50

C’est indubitable that the French are among the lowest of life forms. It’s empirically obvious that they hark back to some antediluvian stage of human evolution where reptilian characteristics were dominant. In our time, they remain chronically cowardly, simperingly smarmy, shamelessly shallow, fulsomely phony, preposterously pretentious, tawdrily treacherous … and generally disgusting. They whored for Hitler and succoured Saddam. We have nothing to learn from them and every thing to teach them about earning the title of "NEM," n'est-ce pas?

Reagan contra Gun Control

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Sat, 2007-04-21 23:01

This is an article written by Ronald Reagan for a gun magazine in 1975. Very a propos right now. Hat-tip: http://patriotpost.us—Linz

There are tales of robbery victims that are shot down in cold blood or executed "gangland style." There are stories of deranged parents killing their children or deranged children killing their parents. There are reports of snipers. And now and then the headlines blurt out that an assassin has struck again, killing a prominent official or citizen.

Shamelessly Shiraz!

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Sat, 2007-03-31 03:05

After SOLOC 3 in Philadelphia in 2003, it was claimed I had something to do with a Shiraz shortage that afflicted America's East Coast for several months. This claim, while outrageous and slanderous, was probably true. Shiraz has been my mind-alterer of choice for many years now—and my policy on moderation is that it should be practised in moderation, if at all.

Diseased Hsiekovian Chickens' Homecoming — Dem-Scum Redouble Their Treason

Desperate Dem-scum are trying to rush through a measure called the "Murtha Proviso." It would cut funding for the war in Iraq and haul US troops home next year, willy-nilly.

Filth. Utter, unspeakable filth.

Today's Reprise—Right plus Left = Wrong!

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Sat, 2007-03-17 09:45

[Originally published in Auckland University's student magazine, Craccum]

Right plus Left = Wrong

Libertarians are often labelled "Right-wing." Some libertarians themselves accept the appellation "libertarian Right." I reject the term altogether. There are too many disagreements, fundamental and incidental, between libertarians and those on the Right of the conventional political spectrum for me to countenance using the same label, however it be qualified.

Jack Wakeland's Letter to the President

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Thu, 2007-03-08 08:05

Jack Wakeland, associate of "Enemy of Objectivism" Rob Tracinski, has launched a letter-writing campaign to President Bush urging him to be more KASS towards Iran. His own letter to the President is reproduced in Tracinski's excellent TIA Daily today. I commend this approach to the Hsiekovians, and suggest it is vastly superior to voting blanketly for the treacherous Dem-scum who, we learned today, are revving up their campaign to have America commit to withdrawal from Iraq by 2008. I urge every SOLOist to write a letter like this. Note the White House e-mail address below.—Linz

AR = Ayn Rand: Audacious Revolutionary!

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Tue, 2007-03-06 21:49

[Reprised to commemorate AR's death, 25 years ago today]

Last week I retraced the steps of SOLO in its three brief years of existence. Since I'm still in seasonally nostalgic mode, let me reminisce about the day Ayn Rand died, twenty-one years ago. I was presenting Morning Report on New Zealand's National Radio that day, and it fell to me to read the announcement of her death. As a recent, awe-struck young convert to her ideas, I found it difficult to report to the nation that her valiant heart had stopped beating.
