Call to action from Benjamin Marks: How come Viv Forbes and Ron Manners are still so brilliantly active, but John Singleton and Hugh Morgan in recent decades do nothing politically radical that isn’t behind the scenes, when government is bigger now than it has ever been, they can both more safely speak out now than when they used to and today they have the benefit of even more money, experience, contacts and seniority? This is not the time when they should be “respectable”; this is the time for the practical uncompromising inspirational shit-stirring that they did so well in the 1970s-80s.

Can everyone please escalate their nagging of Singo and Morgan! They should join Lord Acton, Lysander Spooner, Rothbard and Australia’s Neville Kennard and get more active, outspoken and radical with age, not more timid, respectable and distracted. The biggest horse race, the biggest advertising challenge, the biggest hobby, the biggest political concern, is questioning the nature of government itself and undermining its respectability — government being an expropriating property protector, a protection racket, a coercive monopolist, that does not rest on consent (browse the fun clickable-expandable middle and right columns of this page for elaboration). The essential problem is not government waste, excess or corruption; the problem is the nature of government itself. Government itself is wasteful, excessive and corrupt. It does not rest on consent. Tax is not consensual. There are no signed contracts, as is considered a basic necessity of far less significant relationships. It is not capitalism, but its opposite and its enemy.

The CIS and the IPA do not question the nature of government (despite Workers Party veteran and senior businessman Neville Kennard’s repeated prompting), nor do any Australian journalists; they have left the field clear for the entrance of Singo and Morgan to show that Gina Rinehart Is Our Friendly Voice of Moderation because she is working to find a generous compromise between: on one side, Singo and Morgan at their most radical; and on the other side, the two major political parties who both want to increase the size of government, which they have done historically, as Lang Hancock endlessly wrote.

This strategy reframes the worldwide political debate into including advocates of a total free-market, thereby shifting the mild moderate middle, the safe sensible centre, the default disposition, the careful comfortable compromise, to Gina’s political position. It is practical, truthful, does not require Gina to change any of her politics and would be useful for her, since no one could criticise her any more for being radical, stubborn, difficult and uncompromising, because she could point to Singo and Morgan who favour a total free-market without any government interference as being the ones who are radical, stubborn, difficult and uncompromising. Do Singo and Morgan not care about helping Gina!?

Now is the time to stick your neck out, not pull it in; to step up, not stand aside! Now is the time to entrench and sharpen your political legacy, not soften or avoid it. With Gina’s fame, this is the best chance the world has ever had for successful free-market advocacy. What are Singo and Morgan doing about it? Do they have any better ideas?

In light of my tangible, pioneering and voluminous respect for history at www.BertKelly.info, www.JohnSingleton.info, www.LangHancock.info and elsewhere on this site, how can you all ignore the proposed strategy to reposition Gina? And more puzzlingly, how can you not be inspired to renewed radicalism by the republishing for the first time in a generation such biting, eloquent, passionate, unique, reasonable shit-stirring by such amazing people as yourselves and your former associates?
