For all the dislikes on this, you're saying you're happy with a country that can change a law, then enforce it retrospectively. For example, you buy product A over 2010 and it is perfectly legal to do so. There is an election and a party wins that campaigned against purchase of product A, and on winning they criminalise it. But not just from that date, they now go back and prosecute all who bought product A when it was legal, turning innocent people into criminals.
You are no longer living under the rule of law, but at the whim of politicians, because just like Stalin, they can re-write 'your' history. My post has four dislikes, so all four of you are happy living under a system like that? I guess so long as the evil empire takes down the businessman, right?
And I note this morning a null mind has even disliked that.
This is important, for as my next tax post will show, an increasingly aggressive IRD in New Zealand is likewise recklessly breaking the grand, life enhancing tradition of classical liberalism by forcing the oppression of retrospective enforcement on our taxpayers. Though the point I want to make in this post, is if people can’t understand such basic principles pertaining to the rule of law as this, then there is no hope. None at all. It’s so easy to slip into the Godwin, because it’s so accurate. Remembering that fascism is currently marching again out of the chaos from a Europe destroyed by Keynesian Big State socialism – over half of the Greek police force voted for the fascist Golden Dawn, and a far right MP in the Hungarian Parliament last week made a speech demanding a written register be made of Jews in that country – then remember Hitler came to power by being voted there by people of a mind-set of the slave that ticked dislike to my comment.
And referencing my warning in the yellow box on the right, you must be noticing on the news how the war of the IR's against the decent society gathers pace. We are far closer to 1984, than 2013; it's getting brutal.
Up to two million people are to have their credit files secretly checked under a crackdown on tax evasion to be unveiled by George Osborne to help raise another £10 billion …
The IR’s have become our very own secret police, nothing less, and there is a war being fought daily, which the State has won already … As I say in that yellow box, there was a noble revolution fought over much less than our bounded liberty in a squashed West; we didn't fight that war where we needed to, in the minds of people, and there are no longer the necessary minds equipped for a rearguard action. We are blind and stupid and led by our noses. And those of us who aren’t, are left with the dregs of our lives voted for us by the blind and the stupid, and the gaping maws of politicians.
More coming soon, albeit pointlessly, including the most important tax post to be made in New Zealand this year, because it concerns the end of everything that was good in the West, at the blank mind of an un-thinking Minister's need driven greed for the producer's money; and if the principles and tradition of a once mighty West have to be trampled in the process, then so they will be, and so they are.
War is peace.
Slavery is freedom.
Freedom is taxation .
Since posting this my original post on NBR is up to six dislikes. Think how awful that is. I have no way of understanding the mind that does that. It's either infantile, or something much worse. Over time I'm growing to fear it's the 'much worse' …
