Shameful stuff: the choices we are allowed to make are not of our choosing

There will be no free speech under a government I lead:

It is ironic – and telling - that the one human rights issue the Australian Human Rights Commission hasn’t listed as important in this election is free speech, the right that’s most threatened by the Gillard Government:

A primer on the latest threat to the right the commission has overlooked.

Here’s poster ‘Wallaby’ who nails it:

These are what Mark Steyn would call ‘ersatz rights’, Translated out of ‘Newspeak’ into English:

  • The right to have our government weaken the immigration system, at our expense
  • The right to have our government look after the vulnerable ( possibly including the milk crate -police car bloke), at our expense
  • The right to have our government treat one part of the community differently based on their race, at our expense
  • The right to have our government change the definition of an essentially religious institution that predates government itself.

These are not rights, they are privileges afford to government. Real rights are limitations placed on government by the people. Real rights result in real freedoms.   by Wallaby of Olinda

Islam is not a race, but our detractors are hellbent to milk the false narrative for all its worth: the same type of unwashed rent-a-crowd is organising protests in Melbourne.

‘Options’ won’t fix anti-discrimination mess

The Attorney-General’s Department has tabled a document with the Senate committee inquiry into the government’s anti-discrimination draft Bill. The document outlines a list of ‘options’ for amending the draft Bill in response to the wave of criticism that has recently engulfed the proposal. I’ve written a detailed analysis of the options paper for the benefit of FreedomWatch readers.

The options relate to the definition of discrimination under clause 19 of the draft Bill which currently reads:

  1. None of that drek listed above is a human right – those are all avoda zara group rights. Real human rights are very simple: the right to not be attacked first, in exchange for the responsibility to not attack any other humans first.

    Other than that, I agree with Albert Einstein’s take on the proper function of government: to act as the largest collectively-owned insurance company, to defend all our collective obective needs, not to pander to any individual or sub-group’s subjective wants.

    Needs are simple, too: without them, we suffer pain &/or are injured &/or die; needs are the human rights to air, water, food, shelter, and mobility and, these days, to basic education… you know, what those Americans insist for the preservation of Life, Liberty, and the pursuit (although not the guarantee) of happiness.

  2. … and to medical care. The government’s economies-of-scale (bulk buying) position enable it to provide these basic needs at the lowest cost to all citizens. Non-citizens have only the most basic human rights: the right to not be attacked first, in exchange for the responsibility to not attack anyone else first (criminals lose those rights when they choose to give up their corroborative responsibilities, in breaking the social contract).
