Thought for the Day: The left never stops, but you can still put your feet up


Those who choose to study the history of the last two centuries regularly discover the following political axiom:

The left never stops.

For those of us who discover this axiom, recognise its devastating potential and are motivated to act by it in order to stop the left, we face an awful dilemma. When I think of all the things I would like to do and plan to do, they consist of the following:

Play piano, compose music, watch cricket and Aussie Rules Football, play chess, swim, work hard and earn lots of money, raise a family, drink wine and port, eat egg and bacon, and help spur the advancement of technology that will take humanity into outer space and colonise the solar system, not necessarily for the sake of making the human race multi-planetary and thus more likely to survive into eternity, but more because I think it would be awesome to go to space.

We realise that the left poses a threat to all of the things we love. Seriously, they even think mining asteroids would be problematic. So we fight them. Because we have to.

But that takes us away from the things we love. So the irony is that in order to protect the things we love, we are drawn away from the things we love.

In the modern West there exists an endless supply of leftists determined to change everything, simply for the sake of change. To battle all of them all of the time is exhausting.

The solution is simple. Take the occasional break, and have a beer at the footy. The pozzed reality that is modernity will always draw you back into the fight. It’s best to fight with a fresh body and mind, and righteous anger burning in your heart.

His interest in history was piqued by playing a flight simulator computer game about the Battle of Britain, and he hopes to one day siphon the earnings from his political writings into funding the greatest prog-rock concept album the world has ever seen.
