I Aten't Dead

"I Aten't Dead" was the catch phrase of Granny Weatherwax, one of my favourite characters in the Discworld series. Like the apocryphal "borrowing" witch, I've just been resting, folks.

But Uncle Gary has spurred me once more to man the breach, with his talk on fighting the enemy.

Alas, I think the 4,000 word diatribes may be a thing of history (except occasionally), as I have discovered that time really is the most precious of resources. However, until I spot Mises.org opening up a UK franchise, which I'll gladly volunteer to work for, the flag of Austrianism must be kept flying in England, somehow, somewhere, while the slough of British socialism hisses and snarls its way towards a horrible One World government, via bin inspectors who will trawl their way through your garbage, so they can fine you a thousand pounds for failing to recycle all of your potato peelings.

That it should come to this.

Onward, fellow believers in liberty. We shall not stand for these pygmies, their self-loathing hatred, and their propensity to steal from everyone in the name of making everyone better off.

Unfortunately, there's little we can do directly to get them off our backs, while the vast majority of the population believes in democracy, so let's just try to laugh at them instead, until their rampant Ponzi systems of inflation, taxation, debt, and regulation, collapse of their own accord.

Let us raise a toast to that glorious day. It may be sooner than we think.

Pip pip!!

Great for you to be back!

Good to be back.

But, I'm going to try to stick to two rules.

1. Laugh at the bastards. That's what will finish them in the end.

2. Keep it all a lot shorter

(Rule #2 is going to be tough! ;-)

Welcome back! My RSS reading has suddenly become a lot more entertaining again. :-D I could do with the inspiration while fighting the objectivist infestation we have down here. A thankless task let me tell you.

And as we glower through a rain-soaked NZ spring I shall celebrate and anticipate the return of both yourself and summer respectively with a long G&T.
