This has nothing to do with Objectivism as such, but it possibly matters in the grand historical scheme of things, given the deceit by government of the people that is entailed.

One of the aspects of Fox News I enjoy is that it brings in commentators—and employs some full-time—who do not share its conservative editorial bent so that both sides of the conservative/liberal divide can have at it.

LAW AND ORDER: PROTECTING NEW ZEALANDERS FROM CRIME
An address by Don Brash, Leader, ACT New Zealand, 25 September 2011, Waipuna Lodge, Auckland
Ladies and gentlemen,
As we prepare to elect a new Parliament, I'm delighted to have this opportunity to share some of my reflections on one of government's most crucial functions: the maintenance of law and order in the context of a free society.

Any doubts that the brief historical period of enlightened live-and-let-live liberation from the tyranny of Puritanism is nearly at an end must finally have been put to rest by the mindless furore over Mike Tindall's alleged cavortings in a Queenstown nightclub. It is claimed that the England captain was enjoying himself.

[Don Brash's keynote address at ACT Regional Conference, August 14, 2011]
On November 26 this year, New Zealanders face a choice.
That choice is often couched as “left” or “right.”
The ACT Party and I are often portrayed, by those who don't like us, as "far right."
Allegedly, we'd find Attila the Hun collegial company.
This of course is a shabby smear of a party that stands for individual freedom, by those who don't.

I have come to the conclusion that a significant generic obstacle in our path is: infantilism.
I have reached this conclusion through pursuing my latter-day campaign against the abominable decline in speech standards whereby two thirds of the population now speak in the manner of retarded children, including in those vocations such as teacher, television reporter and flight attendant for which it used to be a prerequisite to be well-spoken.

Those of you who've followed my Stratos TV programme Perigo! will have absorbed that it wasn't on in its regular slot last Thursday, and that we somewhat abruptly announced the Mad Butcher interview as being the last of the first series. The reason is that I have signed on with the Don Brash-led Act Party, as Press Secretary to its parliamentary leader John Boscawen, until the election. This will keep me off the streets and TV screens till November.
