The Great Con That Is Social Welfare

PRESS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Social Welfare

The Great Con That Is Social Welfare

"John Key's mumblings of "The Kiwi Way: A Fair Go For All" is typical PC speak for further political meddling into our lives and more disastrous social engineering," says Peter Osborne, Libertarianz Welfare Spokesman. "Ever since Mr Key took leadership of the National Party he has shown more intent on winning votes than displaying a discernible alternative to Labour. Sadly all he can provide are imitation-Labour policies which will pull down the productive and reward the non-productive."

"Like Labour, the National Party believes that it knows what is best for our lives and has the nerve to tells us that their interference is actually beneficial. Astoundingly the average Kiwi falls for it, despite the torrent of statistics showing the disastrous folly of compulsory welfare and other coercive restrictions and regulations."

Mr Osborne continues, "Gang warfare, youth crime, drug abuse and extremely high suicide rates are a logical outcome when people are paid systematically to do nothing; to aspire to nothing. Life is altered, often irreversibly, from a future of possibilities and aspirations to an easy option of subsidised nothingness. The life of nothingness that is fostered by welfarism could only ever serve to degrade one's self value. It cheapens all of our lives."

He concludes, "Libertarianz will dismantle the welfare system and trust relatives, friends, neighbours and charities to help those who are down on their luck. If life is to have any meaning or value people must help each other by choice, not through involuntary redistribution. Libertarianz will also set about unravelling all of the needless restrictions placed on our private and working lives."

It's Enough to Make you Vote Libertarianz!"

Gordon Campbell:
On Andrew Little’s Debut, Mockingjay, And Drunk Texting

John Key’s credibility has taken a hammering this week – at least among the 50% of the electorate who have always had doubts about him on that score.

The other substantial story of the week has been about Andrew Little’s debut as Labour leader, which has received top marks, especially among the 25% of the electorate still voting Labour. According to some reports, the Labour caucus has been ‘in seventh heaven’ about Little’s success this week in taking it to the government in the House. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Government Arrogance

Right now, National is ramming anti-terrorism measures through Parliament. This legislation will grant the SIS the power to carry out 48 hour bouts of surveillance on anyone without a warrant, and will bestow on government the power to unilaterally revoke anyone’s passports and thus deny them the freedom to travel.
