Lindsay Perigo's Election Editorial
Lindsay Perigo's Editorial, First Broadcast on Radio Pacific's 'Politically Incorrect Show' Noon, November 26
So, sheeple, you're about to elect an even bossier shepherd, with even more ferocious dogs. Well, sheeple, you are pathetic, dumb, gormless non-entities, mindlessly baaaaaa-ing & braying & begging for the shepherd's commands & the dogs' snarling & biting, surrendering any last vestige of individuality you might still have been capable of, extinguishing the last sparks of any fire you may once have harboured within. How reminiscent you are of the outbreaks of mass hysteria that used to occur in medieval villages. How very appropriate that a "medieval village" is what you would turn this country into. The Greens will try to block science & technology; the Alliance & Labour Parties will tax the productive among us even more than now. Political Correctness will be more pervasive than ever, with the pseudo-mordi gravy-train in particular accelerating to an irresistible momentum. Nanny State will govern absolutely every aspect of your stunted, blighted lives, because you, you pitiful, simpering blobs of blandness, want her to. Never will the need for a radio programme like the Politically Incorrect Show be greater; never, for that very reason, will it be under greater threat, especially from power-tripping politicians intent on stamping out any criticism & dissent.
The most important . & chilling . words uttered in this campaign came from the lips of Hillary Clark in the Holmes debate with Jenny Shipley. "The state," she said, "is sovereign." That means sovereign over you; it doesn't exist to serve YOU ... you exist to serve IT. This has been the moral premise of dictators since time immemorial. That the state is sovereign was Hitler's view, & it was Stalin's view. It was the view of one of fascism's leading theoreticians, Alfred Rocco, who declared:
"Fascism stresses the necessity, for which the older doctrines make little allowance, of sacrifice, even up to the total immolation of individuals on behalf of society. For fascism, society is the end, individuals the means, & fascism's whole life consists in using individuals as instruments for its social ends." The state is sovereign.
Or in Hitler's words, "The higher interests of society must set the limits on & duties of the individual." The state is sovereign.
Of course, this pernicious premise has underpinned the actions of this present regime in New Zealand, & it most certainly deserves to be cast off in the name of the sacred liberties on which it has so viciously trampled. But to replace it with Labour, the Alliance & the Greens? They who will trample on our sacred liberties even MORE viciously, in the name of the sovereign state?
You who knowingly support this are beyond redemption. To those of you who do not, I say this: we should treat this looming disaster as a catalyst to renew our fight for freedom. Our adversaries will not be able to effect their goal . a full-blown totalitarian state . immediately. There is still time, even as the descent into the abyss proceeds apace. Do not lie down & allow the state's juggernaut to crush you. Look within & find the unique self that is you. Study the philosophers who proudly upheld the sovereignty of THAT. Join the growing army of freedom-fighters that is here now. Speak out at every opportunity. Scream it from the rooftops, laud it over the mountains & valleys, that the state is NOT sovereign, that YOU own YOUR life. Let's take this forthcoming setback on the chin, then regroup, & & strike back so hard the bastards won't know what's hit them.
Otherwise, the Dark Ages await.
