By Lindsay Perigo
Reviewed by Nicholas Dykes
An excellent book. I do enjoy having something to praise for once. I’d give it a five star rating any day.

Kyrel Zantonavitch's new review on Amazon of my book, 'Total Passion for the Total Height,' prompted me to start re-reading the thing myself. As I made my way through the Introduction I became quite exercised by the trenchant accuracy of my own observations, and motivated to lift myself from the pessimistic funk induced by the horrors of which I write. It occurred to me that I'd never published that Introduction here. Here it is (oh, and of course, buy the book if you want more!):

SOLO-International Op-Ed: A Second Declaration of Independence
When in the course of human affairs it becomes necessary for citizens to break the political chains that hitherto have bound them, and to reclaim the individual sovereignty which is their birthright, it is opportune and appropriate for them to declare the causes which have impelled them to self-liberation. We, the freedom-loving citizens of the United States of America, choose to do so at this historic moment.

Some years ago I got into terrible trouble with orthodox Objectivists who were backing Leonard Peikoff's call to vote Democrat across the board because a) socialism was dead as a philosophical force, and thus, not the concern it might otherwise be; b) Republicans were so bad the primary political imperative at the time was to "topple" them; and c) the Republicans, left untoppled, would usher in a Christian theocracy.

In my profile of Simon O'Neill, When a Cover-Up Is a Good Thing, written before New Zealand Opera's production of Tosca had opened in Auckland, Mr. O'Neill (hereinafter to be referred to as "Sir Simon" for reasons that will become apparent) pronounced the whole cast "A-Grade." Having attended the Wellington opening on Saturday, I can say without hesitation: they are!

The Martian Movie Review
October 2, 2015 — The Martian, from director Ridley Scott, is an exciting film about an astronaut stranded on the Red Planet. It celebrates the heroism that comes from human reason. And it points to what it will take for humans in coming decades to make Mars a new home for humanity. With the film coming on the heels of NASA’s confirmation of liquid water on the Martian surface, that home could be closer than you think!

Much hilarity today as Fox News celebrated its 19th birthday with clips of current anchors on Launch Day looking preposterously young. Bill O'Reilly with hair. Sean Hannity with even more hair. Neil Cavuto looking like a male model with brains. Women no longer around, at least on Fox (no hyperventilating quackers back then). It was an occasion to reflect thankfully on the fact that but for Fox, the tsunami of Political Correctness that has given Hitler victories he could never have imagined on the battlefield would have engulfed all of the West by now. As it is, Fox has been the sandbags that have contained the illiberal tide, even as some of those sandbags have been contaminated by the filthy waters.

Pope Francis = TAS
Turns out Pope Francis met up with Kim Davis, who went to jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. But now the Pope is trying to deny it, or at least, downplay the meeting. Now, as a gay person I think Kim Davis's position on homosexuality is as ignorant as Ayn Rand's, but I admire her (Davis) immensely for having the courage of her convictions. And I loathe the gay mafia, the Pink Swastika-carriers, to an extent where I wish I had nothing at all in common with them, disgusting sub-human nazis that they are.

Pope Francis vs. the Cure of Reason
September 25, 2015 -- A young girl was recently interviewed on TV about her encounter with Pope Francis on his visit to the United States. She cried with joy as she described how he touched her on the forehead and offered a blessing. Now, she said, she might get the miracle she’s prayed for. Maybe someday she’ll be able to walk.

The basic idea behind the Welfare State is people are far too stupid and evil to live their lives decently or properly on their own, so they need to be forced to do so by a wise and virtuous semi-tyrannical government. Most or all people, it seems, are naturally or inherently incompetent to live their lives rightly.

The GOP 2015 Second Debate Rundown
September 17, 2015 -- The second GOP presidential debates (held September 16, 2015) were grueling affairs: four candidates for nearly two hours and eleven others nattering on for over three hours more. The TV audience was torn between coffee to stay awake through it all or gin to ease the pain. But here are some highlights that deserve attention.

'Renée Fleming, A Gala Evening' was threatening to become 'Death by Ravel' by the interval on Saturday night. Music-lovers had flocked to hear the great diva, packing the Michael Fowler Centre to the rafters, but were mistreated in the first half to a protracted assault on the waltz and a tiresome non-event of a song cycle, both by the aforementioned Maurice Ravel.

When a Cover-Up Is a Good Thing!
Tenor Simon O'Neill loves coming back to Wellington. He did the Honours year of his music degree here, studying with the iconic Emily Mair, who, "along with my Aunt Eileen," is "my favourite person in Wellington." He says as a cultural hub, "Courtenay Place is second to none in the Southern Hemisphere." He's rapt about the "rehabilitation" of St James Theatre, where he'll be performing as Mario Cavaradossi in Puccini's Tosca from October 10-17, with what he calls "an A-Grade cast." (The opera opens in Auckland on September 17.)
