We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

    The horrible thing is that people die of statism – for example the people who burned to death in the tower block in London died because of a nine million Pound “green” alteration of the building (the cladding on the outside and the new communal heating ducts on the inside of the building).

    And the response to the deaths caused by wild statist spending?

    “Years of neglect” (liar Mayor Khan).

    “Austerity” (liar “New European” newspaper).

    And general demands for even more statism.

    The more the statism fails the money money and regulations are pushed – statism is rewarded by more statism.

    That has been the story in your own New York State for many decades.

    What is it now? More than 18 thousand Dollars of State and local spending (per person) alone – with Federal spending on top of this.

    And the biggest debt (by far) per person – disguised by being put “off budget” in state owned agencies (a bit like the body that ran the town block in London – in which the new Labour Member of Parliament was involved).

    If private companies hide their debts the cry “Enron” goes up – but if the State does it, then it is clever accounting.

    The Empire State is going to come crashing down (especially New York City) – it will be worse than California, and that is fitting. For New York State and New York City have been Progressive a lot longer than California has been.

    Those off-the-books debts are going to kill New York State – especially when the Credit Bubble economy (sometimes called “New York City”) implodes.

    Then videos on “people will die” will not be funny – especially as the reaction to the failure of statism is likely to be demands for even more statism.

  • Thanks for the buzzkill Paul.

    Paul. I’m sure we agree but this borders on self-parody.

    By the way. The place to go for a detailed analysis of the Grenfell disaster is eureferendum.com

    Turns out the EU is not entirely blameless…

    Seriously, folks, how many plastic fields were depleted to make the celluloid on which this film was made? Plastic doesn’t grow on trees, you know!
    Besides, the world is not as bleak as Paul believes!
    Q. How many of your customers are socialists?
    A. None- the customer is always right!
    With so much of the public being right, what can go wrong?

    “The more the statism fails the money money and regulations are pushed – statism is rewarded by more statism.”

    Since, by its nature, socialism is a system that rewards failure and punishes success, this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise really.

  • Mr Ed

    That is brilliant, especially the cut to the Senator at ‘…Native Americans…’..

    The Left are actually ridiculously easy to send-up, the more this happens, the better.

    Remy is always great. My favourite is his old Raise The Debt Ceiling rap: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EoS52fVtVQM

    It’s good, except for the bit where the Californian Democrat wants every criminal put in jail for life, which is the exact opposite of what your typical real Californian Democrat wants.

  • Mr Ed


    It’s reconcilable if you remember that he defines who is the ‘criminal’, i.e. the socially-unfriendly elements who don’t vote, destroy or donate.

    This is the point where some statist usually asks what freedoms are you willing to give up to attain more safety. As if statism itself is safe.

  • Paul Marks

    Stonyground – correct.
