Linz calls it the age of the air-head. In my terms, it's a break down at the level of that oxygen of freedom: philosophy. And being bereft of philosophy, the Left and other Statists, again, per my other post of this morning, just don't seem capable to understand causality.

Skirmish Star-date 12 January, 2012.

Place: Twitter. All contacts no more than 140 characters.

Combatants: Gareth Hughes - New Zealand Green MP versus Tribeless, AKA, your's truly.

Field notes are not necessary, other than to emphasise the pointing of the enemy to an outside authority to prove his argument, one of the most common ruses used to rob you of your freedom.

Tribeless

Of course not. Even food is not a 'right'. The 'right' lies only in a 'right' to it by paying for it (or growing).

Gareth Hughes

um actually I'm pretty sure it is.

UDHR says Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being... including food.

Tribeless

You're frightening me now. Do adults (not children) have to actually do anything for this right to food and good living standard?

At this stage the skirmish was called off, with the Green MP retreating, leaving my question unanswered.

As Baudrillard says, when they start talking about your right, run away as fast as you can. You are about to lose your freedom. Or rather have some more of it stolen from you without your being aware. The Perfect Crime - Baudrillard

The Green Death.

You'll love this, Mark. In a recent post over at frogblog, Hughes says

It is becoming more apparent every day that providing legal alternatives to file-sharing would have been more effective, easier and cheaper than the cumbersome, complex and ultimately futile Skynet Law.

Legal alternatives to file-sharing, Gareth? You mean, like, paying for stuff? Er, no, of course he doesn't mean that!

What particularly irks me, though, is that he facetiously refers to the Copyright (Infringing File-Sharing) Act as the Skynet law. He's oblivious to the fact that Skynet—not "climate change"—is our impending doom. Skynet must be prevented at all costs.
