Dear Census Collector,

Because of my Christian Libertarian principles I refuse to fill out the Census Papers.  Because they are compulsory, I know they are a violation of my right to privacy and a demonstration of the fact that our government seeks to operate via a Master- Slave relationship.

I reject this conception of government.

The Government works for me.  I am not their servant.

Nor do I accept the utilitarian argument that the Census is «helpful» for the Government with respect to social planning and policy.

I utterly condemn their totalitarian manipulation as if we, the citizens of New Zealand, are merely a pawns in their game to be used and controlled as they please.  I reject their Social engineering for the tyrannical failure that it is!  Thus, I want my Taxes and my liberty back!  I have no intention of legitimizing their power-tripping madness!

I also know that the government already has all the information regarding how many people live at this address, how much each individual earns, etc., so this fact also makes a double travesty and lie of the so-called necessity to have a compulsory Census.

Furthermore this compulsory Census is estimated to cost me, my family, friends, and neighbors 70-90 million dollars!  It is a gross misappropriation and waste of our hard earned money which was rapaciously extorted from us via other unjust and tyrannical laws and powers!

I personally have stood for Parliament many times in the Hamilton West electorate, both as a member of the Libertarianz party, and as an Independent Libertarian with the intention of getting into parliament so as to bring such socialist despotisms to a end.  Thus, I cannot in good conscience fill out the census as it represents everything repugnant about oppressive government power which I have dedicated myself to overthrow.

Some people have suggested I fill it out with bogus answers like «Jedi» as my religion, as 56,000 people did in 2001, yet I can not do that in good conscience, either!  It is no secret that am a Christian, yet I reject the state’s assertion that they have a right to demand I disclose such information to them.  History has proven what evils such information can bring at the hands of diabolical governments.  Thus, my refusal to fill out the Census is a far more righteous protest to this intrusion than the thousands of people whom write in lies, yet never are they brought before the courts!

This fact proves the State chooses to persecute a tiny minority of principled conscientious objectors like myself, whose non-compliance has such a minuscule effect to the accuracy of the data collected in comparison to all the misinformation gathered from the thousands of kiwi whom also hate the violation of their privacy yet prefer to submit fraudulent papers rather than risk prosecution for absolute refusal.

That so many people fill out the census with lies just goes to prove what a farce the whole thing is! Compulsion does not increase the accuracy of collected data!  The compulsion touters are simply fanatical statisticians who want as large a data set as they can get their greedy hands upon.

I have no beef with the Census personnel.  They don’t write the rules, and most of them are simply trying to earn an honest dollar.  Yet I would ask them how it is that they, in good conscience, participate in such a nasty and intrusive Government program? I ask how, in good conscience, they can parrot the threats of Court action and fines against conscientious objectors like myself?  I can only assume they have not thought through the true oppressive nature of the job they are doing, or that somehow they are of the belief that this intrusion can be justified because of the imaginary «benefits» this compulsion is supposed to deliver.

I have no desire to appear before court, or to be convicted, or fined.  I have a Job to maintain and a family to provide for and the very last thing I need is to hand over more of my money to a state system which is already robbing me blind!  That this is the truth about the census; that it threatens my livelihood and wellbeing of my family is despicable!

With this in mind, I am prepared to make the following compromise: I will fill out my name and address and sign it. That is all.  This was acceptable for the Census people in 2001, and in 2006, and I hope this will be acceptable again in 2013.

That is my final offer.

I have not hassled my wife into refusing to fill out her forms.  She is free to follow her own conscience, and has filled them out as she has seen fit.

CHAOS THEORY

freedom-tower-progress-october-2012Article by Barbara Cornell

Syndicated from Barbara Cornell’s personal blog.

I can’t remember how many times I’ve said this to myself (so it must be true, right?): «All projects, no matter how huge in scope or complicated in nature, are merely a series of much simpler tasks.»

A trip to Mars or a trip to the mailbox differ only in the number of steps it takes to get there. If something ahead of you feels too overwhelming, it’s because you’re trying to tackle too big a piece of the project at one time. If at any point you feel like whatever mountain you have to climb is too tall, pull your focus back a little and re-evaluate. If it still feels too overwhelming, draw it back again. There have been days when the farthest out I could handle thinking about was, «Next, I am going to sit up. Not going to worry about whether I can actually get out of the bed yet, just working on sitting up right now.»

Can you go through your whole life with such short-sightedness? Clearly not. Long term planning is vital. But feeling overwhelmed will paralyze you to the point that you don’t even take care of the immediate, and it eats you alive.

I recently re-ordered checks for my business. For signature line message, I had printed:

«…And having done all, to stand.»
(Ephesians 6:13)

Do what you should do, and when you’re finished, stand your ground. It will be ok. I promise.

HOW THE CENSUS MESHES WITH BANKRUPT TOTALITARIAN SOCIALISM

wikiriwhi-for-HCC-001Article by Tim Wikiriwhi.

Syndicated from Eternal Vigilance.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Mr. Wikiriwhi is a Transegoist sympathizer; not a Transegoist — our syndication of his article does not indicate that he endorses the Transegoist philosophy.

On the reoccurring theme of «What is the proper roll of government?» I submit to you a frank article about the New Zealand census.

Thomas Jefferson wrote “He who governs best governs least.” He penned the American Declaration of Independence, which actually defined what the proper duties of government are: to defend the God given rights of the individual, which is a very limited sphere of operation, which does not include the supply or control of such services as education, hospitals, arts and sports, etc, all of which are the proper sphere of free enterprise and private, voluntary associations.

It is because western society has forgotten such enlightened principles which motivated Jefferson and the founding fathers of America, and instead have adopted a totalitarian socialist conception of government where the prevailing belief is that all of life’s problems have political solutions, as a result of which, Western civilization teeters on the brink of absolute economic collapse and chaos.

Understand the gravity of the situation; the rationale that underpins the so-called justification for having the compulsory census.

tyrannyThe image above is the Cover picture from the Government Facebook page, Census NZ.

This image is case in point as to why the enlightened Kiwi is outraged by the underpinning arguments which Census NZ and the New Zealand government use to vindicate this compulsory violation of our privacy; i.e., that the information gathered will be used to for their «social planning.»

Bread and circuses, anyone?

Notice how this picture appeals to the unthinking: the «Government as the font of all culture; get someone else to pay for it» mentality.  «More drag strips, more skate parks, more gigs and festivals, more sports,» etc., ad nauseum.  Notice that it completely forgets to add: “More taxes, more rates, more debt, more compulsions and property violations, more government poking its nose into things which are not its business to be involved in!»

SCCZEN_A_180410NZHAGV807_460x230Now I like drag strips and concerts as much as anyone, yet I am not so stupid as to believe that these things are only possible via political interventions.  I also know that every time the government or city council builds a stadium or sports facility and events that they always run massively over budget and put us into massive debts, and, ultimately, end up costing rate payers and tax slaves tens of millions of dollars…every…time.

Three examples from my home town of Hamilton will suffice as examples:

The rugby stadium.
The V8 supercars.
The Claudlands event center.

Each of these cost Hamilton ratepayers many tens of millions of dollars over the price the Hamilton city council told ratepayers they would cost!

Via consecutive socialist meddling, the HCC has racked up $500 million in debts!

pigAnd what needs to be appreciated is that this bankrupt situation is the norm across the globe in Western socialist democracies; i.e., socialist politicians are systematically bankrupting their captive populations.  Debts are skyrocketing and rates are going through the roof, yet nobody seems to be waking up to the fact that city councils ought not to be involved in such ventures at all — they are best left to free enterprise and voluntary associations, which are much more realistic about how such things get built and on what scale.  Most importantly, they don’t demand money via compulsory taxations upon the community; i.e., little old ladies living on pensions don’t face rent increases or rates hikes to pay for the white elephants and delusions of grandeur which big mouth, big promising politicians spout at election time to get elected.

If the figures don’t add up, they don’t get built — its as simple as that.  I.e., economic reality prevails; not ridiculous socialist whim.

The sort of people whom support any sort of government involvement in such things are either ignorant, evil, or both.

The ignorant have not figured out that such things will return to haunt them via higher rates, rents, and costs for necessities in goods and services, and the evil don’t give a d@mn [expletive redacted] if people who don’t like rugby, etc., are forced to pay for new stadiums etc.; all they care about is having a flash new place to worship their sporting Gods.  They are too stupid to realize that better stadiums and facilities could be established via legitimate means without the use of draconian powers of compulsion.

Hamilton News points out that the publicly funded Claudland’s Event Center operates under a $1.42 million annual deficit; even as tax payers continue to express outrage of the V8 debacle.

The New Zealand Herald quotes City of Hamilton debt estimates as a result of the V8 debacle as being around $37.4 million, with a total municipal annual debt of around $100 million.

WICKED WISDOM

04Article by Barbara Cornell.

Syndicated from Barbara Cornell’s personal blog.

Just checked out Jada Pinkette Smith’s death metal band, Wicked Wisdom. They ain’t fixing to take over Metallica’s market share anytime soon (too bad, really), but they’re not half bad. Even though metal is viewed as an angry, young, white man’s genre, it really is an equal opportunity crowd.

That’s not as true with other genres, which seem to be more comfortable in their own demographic. Yes, there are a few white rappers (Eminem, Vanilla Ice — if he even still counts; his most repeated lyric these days is likely, «Would you like fries with that?» and that’s really it), but mostly they’re black. Yes, there are a few old fart pop singers (Paul McCartney…um…), but mostly they’re barely post pubescent, pimplies. Try being a white blues singer or guitar player, and you’ll find yourself faced with «Who does he think he is? White man trying to be John Lee Hooker. Psht.» And try to sell pop music to the teeny-boppers, the Beliebers, if you’re old and wrinkled…good luck with that.

The metal crowd is as likely to embrace the Killswitch Engages, the Sevendusts, the Within Temptations, the AC/DC’s (I heard Angus and his school boy uniform recently celebrated their Golden Anniversary) among us, as they are the Avenged Sevenfolds, and the Five Finger Death Punches. Black, white, latino, asian, male, female, young, old, gay, straight, christian, satanist, atheist, liberal or conservative, the metal crowd just does not care. Just bring it hard, fast and intense.

HOW FAIR IS THAT?

Yesterday I opened a letter from my bank informing me that they had recommenced raping my bank account — at the behest of the IRD. “Fair” enough, I suppose. It’s the IRD’s job to be fair. Why me? I guess I must “owe” them money because I don’t “pay” them anything.

Then I watched BBC World News. I was flabbergasted to learn that the Cypriot government is proposing to rape the bank accounts of literally everyone with an onshore bank account. Luckily, it’s a one-time tax, in which Cypriots stand to lose 7% to 10% of their life savings in one hit, rather than the easy weekly payments I have to contend with. How fair is that?

Robert Tracinski of Real Clear Politics says:

«The news broke over the weekend that in exchange for a bailout — or ‘bail-in,’ whatever that means — of banks in Cyprus, bank deposits would be hit with a one-time ‘wealth tax’ of 7% to 10%, depending on the size of the account. One expert sums up the reaction in the markets: ‘traders and investors are aghast.’ So are depositors, who quickly emptied the island’s cash machines.»

This is one of the biggest bank heists in history, and it is being carried out, not by the crew of charming rogues in your favorite caper flick, but by finance ministers. So it’s an inside job.

For an informed analysis of this latest episode in the Eurozone crisis, read Liberty Scott’s latest post. Scott notes that:

«The Cypriot Parliament, which must vote on this law, wont do so until Friday. Cypriot banks will remain closed until then. Will this trigger panic more widely? What would you do?»

WWJD? (Trick question, Jesus never had a bank account.) To my mind, the proposal is so unthinkable that it’s unthinkable even to propose it. It’s g0dd@mn communism! Let’s hope this proposal isn’t adopted but, even if it’s not, as Scott notes, “the damage is done to Cypriot banking.” Deposit funds into an account with the Bank of Cyprus? Yeah, right.

Lindsay Mitchell has just the right quote:

«Any government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take away everything you have.»

and Queens of the Stone Age have just the right song:

«First it giveth,
Then it taketh away.»

WEAKBLOOD

Poem by Mark I Rasskazov, Editor in Chief.

My soul breaks like a storm against the rocky shore.
I will erode the sandy softness of the lie;
I uncover the jagged heart of an evil:
Brokenness stabbing heaven like a broken blade.

I am the cliff face; those who ride the high plateau
Will swiftly plunge to a raging river below.
If God will not grant you wings of merciful grace,
You belong to the wrath I spew among the stones.

Your weakness – your dross feeds my tireless, flaming ire.
My salivating twenty-three black, jagged teeth:
They lie in wait for you to trip, stumble, fall down.
The weak, they surround me; I will imbibe blood today.
