The Grenfell Tower Fire Massacre Shows Socialist Government’s Failure

Great Britain has had Socialist governments since the 1930s, and socialist legislation shortly after the turn of the century, but after almost 90 years of big-government socialistic, bureaucratic rule, the Grenfell Tower Massacre can still occur.

This massive death was caused by government incompetence, because all governmental bureaucracies become incompetent. Frederick Hayek pointed that out in his 1943 book, The Road to Serfdom. This is because in all bureaucracies, the worst rise to the top. The most mediocre, fawning, afraid to criticise, milquetoast, bureaucrat will rise to the top, and we see this in the constant incompetence of the police, and the security services in Europe, who let known terrorists and law offenders wander around the streets, instead of incarcerating or deporting them.

The same incompetence is illustrated by the Grenfell Towers fire massacre. First they tell people to stay in their apartments, and they’ll be rescued. Then, when the building is being engulfed in flame, they tell people to selfl evacuate. How much more incompetence can there be in a country as developed as England, with an educational system which traditionally has prided itself on the quality of the scholars, intellectuals, and writers, which won renown throughout the world?

Now they say that sixty apartment blocks must be evacuated immediately, and thousands of people are being thrown out of their domiciles on a second’s notice, even though these sixty blocks have had people living in them for ages, and its hard to believe it wouldn’t be cheaper to hire firewatchers on each floor with extinguishing equipment for far less than it has cost to rehouse these people, the Socialists thrown them into the streets, or sterile hotels. At the very least a few days to a week’s notice should have been given to these victims of Socialism.

With sixty out of sixty blocks failing fire safety standards by having the flammable cladding on their sides, and the number of buildings to be checked at 600 according to the Press, it is clear how dangerous Socialist government is to the health and safety of the Individual Citizen and the non-voting Child. That such a situation could go on for so long without a tragedy bringing it to mass attention clearly shows why government, especially socialist government (and every government in the world is socialist or authoritarian in some measure) is always going to be incompetent in whatever it touches.

If this had been a private huge company or corporation, you can be fairly sure that that cladding would have been tested and guaranteed not to be flammable, or else they would have been sued into bankruptcy, or probably had their CEO serve jail time and a huge fine. If people have died, he might have been convicted of Manslaughter. There would have been some sort of retribution and compensation for the victims, and the satisfaction in knowing that someone who caused the death of your relative because of negligence or the quest for profits had paid a heavy price. But when Socialist Government does it, nobody goes to jail, nobody resigns, nobody loses their salary and pays a huge fine, or sits behind bars like the person having a few ounces of cannabis.

All Big Government does is set up a commission or inquiry. No one gets executed. A White Paper is issued with recommendations, because the Socialist illusion is that big government can always be reformed, so they have been “reforming” it for ninety years, while it continues to keel from one tragedy and incompetence to the next. Crisis after Crisis without end, with people uselessly losing their lives, because most voters have been brainwashed into tolerating Socialist, un-Jeffersonian Government.

With Corbyn’s 40% Labour vote, you can see how mentally brainwashed are the British People. This guy’s love-of-big-government doctrine has brought about situations like the Grenfell Tower Massacre, yet he recently got cheered at Glastonbury by the young crowd. So the coming generations have no inkling of how they are supporting what is destroying them, because they never read the philosophical Masters and Writers of the 20th Century; they never read anything except perhaps an assigned textbook, certainly not Hayek and Rothbard, and Russell, Sartre, and Camus. Or Huxley, Alan Watts, and J. Krishnamurti,or stuff from the earlier philosophers from Plato’s Socratic dialogues to Schopenhauer’s Essays, stuff that will develop the brain, make you doubt opinions you’re sure off,and lead to an investigation of the consciousness of the individual.In the modern world, this is all bypassed for visual stimuli and junk food among most of the young, and it’s been going on for so long that their parents are just the same. I’m now seeing old middle-aged women with wrinkly tatooes.

So Socialist government destroys Liberty and Mentality, and impoverishes so many people, especially the young, that it leads them to more Socialism, which finally results in the complete breakdown of society. The West is in this process; England well illustrates it.

Since the process will continue because so many cheer and believe in big, bureaucratic government, there is very little hope of turning it around in America, the UK, and Western Europe, and Asia is equally as wimpy as the British when it comes to confronting Governmental Authority, look at China and Japan, or Singapore. Of course, Asia also has a rich tradition of Capitalistic trading, with many merchants.

Yes, the Grenfell Tower Fire Massacre clearly shows that with so many brainwashed, historically- and economically-ignorant, people there is really very little hope of now diverting Mankind away from disaster,

Brexit, the Libertarian Devolution

It seems that, outta the blue, the Leave vote on Brexit has sprung into the lead in the polls, and a Brexit seems a real possibility.paul 19

Such a Brexit would clearly be to the benefit of the British peoples, but whether benefit or hinderance, it would mark a clear step backward from bureaucratic centralization, and against the concentration of democratic power in the hands of a handful of bureaucrats.

One of Libertarianism’s key concepts is that in bureaucracies, the worst rise to the top. Hayek and Mises both wrote extensively on the phenomenon. This is well illustrated the world over where government actions, on a daily basis, are performed incompetently, costing people their lives or much misery. There is always an “investigation”, and never an end to the errors. Nor does it matter in which country it occurs; we constantly hear appalling stories of government abuses carried out all over the globe, in first world as well as third world countries.

The peoples of Britain have been robbed of their sovereignty, as well as being looted of their treasure, by the EU, and they know it. “You can’t fool all the people all of the time” goes the old political saw.

So the move back from EU subservience to U.K. Parliamentary subservience is salubrious , but it is naive to think that such an action will bring a Libertarian Norther, coursing galeforce through the un-limed, mephitic outhouse of the UK Government. The British Bureaucracy is formidable in itself, and will leave plenty of shackles around the legs of Englishmen in their daily endeavor to survive. But it is less immune than the Brussels Sprouts, being subject to the power of the British voter, who has watched as Socialism has destroyed the Individual in Britain — an Individual who, had he been born in the 19th century, could have passed his whole life without contact with, or imposition from, the British Government, except for his birth and death certificates. No military draft, no income tax (or “statutory incomes policy” in the language of the bureaucrats and politicians), no mandatory insurances, were there to furrow his brow. The dissipation of energy engendered by western socialism in the U.S. and E.U. has destroyed Western man, and turned his mind from philosophy to survival, and thus materialism, whether that materialism be the food, clothes, shelter of survival, or the materialism of pleasure in various entertainments.

Nevertheless, the devolutionary crawl from more centralized bureaucracy to less is always to be welcomed in Libertarian theory, although there are some cases where Federalism, as in the case of the desegregation of the American South, seems necessary to overcome local injustices. But the violation of States Rights, all over America, has certainly had dire consequences when it comes to the criminalization of Cannabis by the Democratic Party Fascists, showing how a bunch of Fascists in Washington can terrorize an entire nation for decades, and get away with the Crime.

So the best of British luck to the Englishmen, Welsh and Scots, as they make ready to reestablish their national sovereignty over themselves.

“Britons never never never shall be slaves.”
