Lindsay Perigo: For Easter -- A (Revised) Sermon From The Mount

Today's being the last show before the Easter break, I thought I'd do a sequel to my chat to God the other day - a retake of the Sermon on the Mount, since here too, I figure I can improve on the original:

Blessed are the poor in spirit - when they become rich in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of earth.

Blessed are they who mourn - when they get over it.

Blessed are the meek - when they become self-confident, for then they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are they which do hunger & thirst after rights - when they do something about it, for then they shall become free.

Blessed are the merciful - when they learn to discriminate, for then they shall obtain justice.

Blessed are the pure in heart, since they must have been using their brains.

Blessed are the peacemakers - when they learn that it doesn't come at any price.

Blessed are ye when men shall revile you & persecute you & shall say all manner of evil against you falsely - when those men are Jim Anderton & Helen Clark.

Blessed are the rational, the independent, the honest, the productive, the just, the proud - for theirs is the glory of man.

Rejoice, & be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward on earth - when you have earned it.

Ye are the salt of the earth - but if the salt has lost its savour, wherewith shall it be salted? If ye become as sheeple, ye shall be trodden under the feet of politicians & bureaucrats.



Be ye instead the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid.

Do not hide your light under a bushel, but let it so shine before men that they may see your vision of reason & freedom, & glorify it, & bring it to pass on earth.

Scoop 3.0 Update & Membership Sale: The End Of ‘Objectivity’ In Journalism

2019 looks like it might well be another really bad, terrible, not so good year for the traditional journalism model globally... on the positive side, smaller independent players with innovative digital models and a more open approach like our ScoopPro service look likely to be more relevant than ever.

Gordon Campbell: On America’s ‘Green New Deal’

‘Socialism’ is more of a political scare word than an objective condition. Even in the US, as Nate Silver’s 538 website pointed out this week there is polling evidence that modern Americans are inclined to treat socialism as meaning ‘equality’ rather than the ‘government ownership or control’ that Americans understood the term to mean back in the 1940s...

In its attitudes to tax, New Zealand has been the last colonial outpost of Thatcherism. Change, however, may be in the air. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On The Nelson Fire And Climate Change

The Nelson fire has been a useful warning of things to come, given how climate change will (a) increase the likelihood of reduced rainfall and drought-like conditions in many parts of New Zealand, which – obviously – will raise (b) the fire danger and (c) the cost of providing the communities at risk with the enhanced firefighting capabilities that they’re going to need.
