"I'm not going to pontificate and tell you to execute your government at dawn, but it wouldn't be a bad idea."
"To the extent that a society limits its government to policing functions which curb the individuals who engage in aggressive and criminal actions, and conducts its economic affairs on the basis of free and willing exchange, to that extent domestic peace prevails. When a society departs from this norm, its governing class begins, in effect, to make war upon the rest of the nation. A situation is created in which everyone is victimized by everyone else under the fiction of each living at the expense of all."
Edmund A. Opitz
Janet Daley, Sunday Telegraph, writes that Westminster's dirty little secret is the Right is right, then promptly demolishes her own argument. Writing that the dirtly little secret is in fact a Big Secret - and one she calls the conspiracy that dare not speak its name and is one shared by all members of the political class who are not halfwits or ideological zombies - meaning that those sharing the secret can only number about half a dozen or so - but hey ho, there I go digressing again........
Daley maintains that everybody knows and has known for some time what needs to be done, but that nobody has been prepared to publicly say it and also asks why politicians do not talk to the public in an honest way. She then points out that if the politicians run away from doing that which needs to be done they will never be able to make real progress towards a more dynamic and fair society. Allied to Daley's piece we also have the usual weekly Sunday 'inept rubbish' written by Matthew d'Ancona which at first sight is unrelated, but most definitely is.
Daley makes the childish mistake in attempting to maintain there still exists a Left, Centre and Right when in fact it has been obvious for some time - especially with the accession of Cameron to the leadership of his party, coupled with the formation of the Coalition - that the Left had joined forces with what purported to be the Right in order to form a centre-left government. This can be evidenced by NuLabour (Blair) praising BluLabour (Cameron) and vice-versa. Once can discount MiliE and his Balls as both their heads are stuck so far up the socialist rear orifice that there exists not a "travelling light" with a long enough lead to reach that far.
Another lesson Daley needs to learn, as with politicians, is that there cannot be a fair society. Some are born to greatness (of which none presently are alive) and the remainder, the majority, are not. She also needs to acknowledge that whilst the political class remain in the "halfwit and ideological" section of our society the country is doomed forever to remain a ping-pong ball forever a captive of the political elite's shenanigans.
Turning to Matthew d'Ancona, he writes about the the Milis and their sibling rivalry yet fails to mention that whatever the outcome, nothing would in reality change within the Labour Party, nor the country. What hell difference would it make whether 'D' overcame 'E' when both are of like mind with Cameron and Clegg in the desire to acknowledge and accept subservience to the European Union? What difference would it make to devolvement of power to the people (localism) when none of them truly believe in such? Why would they believe in diminishing the power they hold and which they have usurped over time by returning it to the people, thus making themselves worthless to those they are supposed to serve?
In this context I unashamedly reproduce part of a comment made by Edward Spalton on an earlier post, one which encapsulates our problem succinctly:
"The main political parties have ceased to be representative of genuine interests - such as labourers, business, the landed gentry or whatever. Their memberships are in steep decline and they have become marketing brands, essentially selling the same product - principally their own entitlement to office, along with slavish subjection to the EU and other supranational projects which provide vastly increased career prospects for the compliant - but concealed behind vacuous marketing slogans - "Things can only get better ", "A future fair for all ", "In Europe but not run by Europe ", "The Big Society " etc. The political class, steeped in PC Frankfurt Marxism so deeply at university that even the Conservative party is a willing dupe for many of its doctrines , picks "team players " as candidates for its largely indistinguishable party platforms.
In 1971 the small beginnings of the present system of parliamentary perks, expenses, pensions etc was created. One MP saw that the more parliament came to be seen as a salaried, professional career, the greater would be the power of the gatekeepers - the party selectors. This would change the relationship between an MP and his party and of Parliament to the government to the advantage of party and government. He said that the reason for paying MPs was only to ensure that men of ability but no money could serve their country in Parliament - no more than that. We are living with the consequences of the change from that idea to the careerist model to this day.
The prescient MP was Enoch Powell."(Where Powell is concerned, when he spoke it becomes even more obvious that it was not just the subject of immigration to which we were deaf.)
Because the political class and the MSM continue, with their blinkered and self-preserving zeal, along this path of democratised dictatorship and in which to speak of nationalism is quickly portrayed by that same political class and MSM as racism; where that political class condone and assist the European Union in the destruction of nation states in order to create a new European state of one mind, one thought and which is a course of action about which the MSM dare not speak its name; where that same political class would have its masters conditioned in thought word and deed; where, come general elections the only choice the people have is which set of slave-masters to serve under because any other voice is supressed by the political elite's public relations organisation - aka the MSM - then there is only one method by which the people can be set free.
