New Zealand is a Commonwealth Nation.
We enjoy the fruits of being a society with British roots.
Since Queen Elizibeth’s recent death, opportunity has not been lost for all the Marxist… anti-British imperialism toxic delusions to bubble up.
Fools sit in front of their Laptops… fancy coffee at their side…. griping about it being so tuff having to go to work for a living!
They look at the Queen in her palace and make out that she, and the Commonwealth she ruled is to blame for them having to work at some 9 to 5.
Filled with envy, to them the Queen represents not Law and Order… not civilisation but greed… and what their feeble minds conceive as the ‘horrible Capitalist system of oppression’.
Eat the Rich!
What is the alternative?
Klaus Schwab, George Soros, and Bill Gates have a plan.
If only we had a Working Class Party in power!
One that Nationalized all property and distributed things equally to all!
Wow! What a Dream…. There would be no more poverty, no more wealth disparity, and I would not have to work anymore!
You will own nothing… and be happy.
It’s too easy to gripe about having to work to live, and participate in society.
How often I myself complain about having so little time to do important things because I must instead work to pay my bills and feed my family, yet when I read memes/screen shots like this one at the top of this post it snaps me out of my self-pity.
When I hear other people complaining I remember that in a free society, life is mostly about choices.
We cannot justly bleat about having it tuff when the chief cause of our lot in life is because we our selves are in a habit of making a lot of foolish ones.
Having lived in the most affluent parts of Western civilisation few of us can say we are not ultimately the authors of our own predicaments.
We could have made smarter choices.
We are victims only of our own devise!
This is called self responsibility.
And why do you think we should lead a life of leisure?
It turns out that is not a Fulfilling life.
Being a productive member of society is honorable.
Working to provide for yourself, your family, and being able to give to charity is honorable.
Self-reliance is Freedom.
Sloth is a vice.
Working is a Christian virtue and associated with Honest living… and clean wealth.
‘Reaping what we sow’ is a parable of Justice.
And when combined with other virtues like thrift, sobriety, etc leads to well deserved prosperity.
Practice virtue and You just may exceed your less-conscientious peers in affluence… if that is what you deem to be most desirable.
Yet if they practice better virtue than you do… don’t complain if they can retire ten years earlier than you can!
Freedom makes wealth disparity possible.
Too much spare time can be a trap.
‘Idle hands are the Devils playground’ is more than mere platitude.
Sloth and poverty… sloth and criminality travel together.
These are Social statistical facts.
And I know this from personal experience.
Working ought to teach us to appreciate things… and what a lot of things we have!
Mind boggling stuff and inconceivable abundance compared to virtually all who have gone before us!
We live better than the Kings of old.
75% of the garbage we buy we don’t even need!
Need I carry on?
Again we wallow in useless trinkets… by our own folly.
‘Things’ apparently come so easily to us that they loose their shine.
Mountains of trash heaps are filled with discarded treasures for which we lost appreciation.
We have it soooo tuff!
When we contemplate all this it is staggering to understand that so many people have no apprehension of how Good they have had it under Queen Elizabeth the 2nd.
How could they be so easily led to despise her?
Note to self: have gratitude for the quality of life I have enjoyed.
Gratitude to God.
Gratitude to all the Great Men and Woman that worked, bled and died for Freedom and Justice.
Appreciation is shamefully lacking among our people which allows the destroyers and enemies of Freedom and justice to grow more powerful by the hour.
The Sun is setting in the West.
Though far from perfect, still the Commonwealth has been one of the most blessed portions of the world to be born into!
The Poorer Nations envy us.
So many ignorant fools don’t know how lucky they are.
Why is the working man’s life so despised by many?
They simply don’t appreciate the greatness of our society and how good the working class has it.
And Our Learning institutions and media have been hijacked by subversive Commy losers who hate the prosperity of the West have been whispering discontent into working peoples ears.
Undermining our civilisation… seeking it’s overthrow.
What is ironic is that the worst attributes about our current system… the most enslaving component… is not the Capitalist portion, but the Socialist element!
That is heavy taxation… and yet it is the same Socialist ingrates who complain about working who vote for heavy Taxing Political parties!
They literally vote for the lash upon their own backs.
And it is these same Socialists in power who cozy up to the very worst Corporate Plutocrats to whom they redistribute wealth from the poor to these mega-rich… via Taxation and Political favours!
Satan Laughing spreads his wings.
None of that is Capitalism.
If you want to have a better life… be more virtuous… make better choices.
And for goodness sake do not beg for More Government… Less Freedom.
That’s Slavery… and it is ready and waiting in the wings.
RIP Good Queen Elizabeth 2.
I am a Libertarian, and hope one day New Zealand becomes a Free Republic, yet this ideal does not prevent me from extolling the virtues of the Commonwealth as they have been.
New Zealand has been facing a constitutional crisis and their are Evil factions who would love to make New Zealand a Socialist Republic. I oppose such ambition with my whole heart and would choose to remain a commonwealth nation as far more preferable than that!
Yet as Britain herself sinks into the socialist abyss, the Bulwark she represents against our slide into socialist tyranny is crumbling.
We Libertarians must not slumber but propagate a love of Liberty amongst our countrymen.
We are working against Gargantuan engines of propaganda that are at full steam lobotomising the New Zealand population… we must appeal to Heaven….

Snippet of John Trumbull’s Declaration of Independence.
THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE AND THE DEBATE OVER SLAVERY
When Thomas Jefferson included a passage attacking slavery in his draft of the Declaration of Independence it initiated the most intense debate among the delegates gathered at Philadelphia in the spring and early summer of 1776. Jefferson’s passage on slavery was the most important section removed from the final document. It was replaced with a more ambiguous passage about King George’s incitement of “domestic insurrections among us.” Decades later Jefferson blamed the removal of the passage on delegates from South Carolina and Georgia and Northern delegates who represented merchants who were at the time actively involved in the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. Jefferson’s original passage on slavery appears below.
‘…He has waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating its most sacred rights of life and liberty in the persons of a distant people who never offended him, captivating & carrying them into slavery in another hemisphere or to incur miserable death in their transportation thither. This piratical warfare, the opprobrium of infidel powers, is the warfare of the Christian King of Great Britain. Determined to keep open a market where Men should be bought & sold, he has prostituted his negative for suppressing every legislative attempt to prohibit or restrain this execrable commerce. And that this assemblage of horrors might want no fact of distinguished die, he is now exciting those very people to rise in arms among us, and to purchase that liberty of which he has deprived them, by murdering the people on whom he has obtruded them: thus paying off former crimes committed again the Liberties of one people, with crimes which he urges them to commit against the lives of another….’

I belong to a ‘Physics’ social media page.
On it a certain person seeking to justify belief in the Natural Unguided Evolution of everything posted the following….
Do you consider the following scenario impossible, and if so , why? I think the following scenario is possibly true:
“We are all part of the same universe that appears to trend towards disorder in the forward direction of time, following laws of nature. And we are all subject to “mistakes” that a universe makes as it does its thing. And we are all subject to “successes” that a universe makes as it does it’s thig. And what one of us perceives as a “mistake” , another may well perceive as a “success”. All as the universe (with us as a part of it) continues simply doing it’s thing, following laws of nature.
@Tim Wikiriwhitagging you as this is the main post requested.”
He also attached the following video…
I begin my critique….
Ok…. very interesting Ideas… yet when you analyze the premises we do not find true ‘Chaos’… but a chain of causation. Materialistic Determinism.
There is a lot going on here… for example the multi-pendulums appear to be behaving quite differently when in reality they are all obeying the same ‘natural laws’… so it is wrong to see this as any significant difference… or chaos.
The Lady says @ 3:18 ‘Our Future has not been written yet’ … which is contradictory to the fundamental premises…. for if we could describe the infinitesimal differences between the starting points of the pendulums, and other conditional differences they encounter (including Einsteinian level fluxations) in their motions… we could predict where their motions into the future and explain why they appear very different…. ‘no real chaos’ involved.
Under this cosmology everything we see in this universe must be explicable via an unbroken chain of natural causation all the way back to when the Big Bang exploded… including what you perceive as all your personal virtues… and vises…. unfulfilled hopes and dreams!
It is because things like Objectively binding morals and values cannot be derived from Materialist premises that those who are committed to the materialist idea are forced to arbitrarily deem such things to be illusory.
In the same way any notion of ‘Beauty’ also must be ultimately meaningless…. for beauty is a value judgement that has no place in the cold reality of Elements and motion… and yet we have a perception of Beauty.
now the ultimate question is this… can such ‘Chaos theory’… as enunciated in the video… working with the materials we find in this universe… have sufficient explanatory power to answer how it is we humans exist on this planet… orbiting the Sun?
My answer is an emphatic No!
There is a missing essential paradigm…
I will speak more of this tomorrow… yet lets contemplate the Space Station…. How it orbits the Earth… How in doing so it fully complies with the Laws of Nature…. and yet while it does not contradict the Laws of Nature… it’s existence cannot be explained in purely natural terms… via a chain of causation that leads back to the Big Bang.
There is a special element that needs to understood…. and I will leave it here… and carry on tomorrow.
Just one or two or three more things to ponder… What was the cause of the Big Bang… from where did this universe ‘pop’ into existence? And what prevents your rationale from hanging upon the absurdity of ‘Infinite regression’? For If this universe is not eternal… it had a beginning… and if it had a beginning it must have had a cause… was there by your reckoning… an infinite chain of causation? Or Ultimately do you accept the necessity that there exists *some un created Ultimate reality*?
For the first question of Philosophy is …. ‘why is there something rather than nothing?’
More from Tim…
I like to chillax and contemplate this mind blowing relationship and the appreciation that everything is in motion… Craft IPA in hand.
This is obviously an artistic child-like interpretation… very simplistic yet one step above the usual static Sun conception.
Not to scale… and only contends with the Sun, Earth, and Moon… so no ‘orbital plane’ (which itself is only something relative to a static Sun… and which ought to inspire awe given the whole conglomerate is in serious motion) .
All the bodies themselves rotate.
These simplified types of visual still have value, helping us expand our notions and make them more sophisticated, and yet we would be very disturbed should such a visualisation be made to scale… with the correct motions for example the Sun does not travel in a straight line but itself follows an orbital curve.
Yet I am not sure anything better than this abstract conception could be presented in this format?
Helical pitch greater than the diameter.
The distance between the Sun and the Earth is way off,(proportional to the diameter of the Sun), the Earth and Moon are at least 10x too big by the same measure, and the ‘pitch of ‘the helical Screw’ @ 800,000/hour ( year length) ought to be about 7x the Orbital circumference length of the Earth about the Sun, which would barely be recognisable as comparative to this artistic impression… placing our helical path at an extreme acute angle comparative to this… esp so if our orbit is not in fact perpendicular to the suns motion … as this diagram suggests… which is also probably an inaccurate simplification.
If our orbit is skewed to the Suns motion, then for an outside observer moving in parallel to the Sun it would appear that at times we would be accelerating slightly past the moving Sun, and then dropping behind it…
Trying to visualise the actual motions is mind-bending… esp how far out into space the gravitational effects of the Sun extends… dragging even Jupiter along for the ride… at breakneck speed!
Anyone see fault in my musings?
