It is well known that Labour administrations close more hospitals, schools and University science departments than Tories do, per unit time. It has therefore long been apparent that the “socialist project” has not been about “helping the working man”, ever – at least not for about 100 years – and more about overturning the Enlightenment and what this did to make Man’s previous unavoidable condition seem hideous and immoral.
I came across this snippet (sorry, bad pun) over at Tim Worstall’s place. I’m certain that the Libertarian Alliance has no policy-position on methods of childbirth, unlike statists, Greenazis and other Luddites with axes to grind, it being in this elightened (for now) day and age a matter for the individual family’s choice.
But what if that choice, so hardly won from nothing over centuries of struggle and thought, by the Lights of Science, were to be so tragically attenuated again by the Perverted Lights of faux-neuo-pastoralist Greenazism?
The older I get, the more jaundiced a view I take of socialists, in all their self-avowedly-different colours and shapes.
