Control Freakery

Oh for fucks sake, all these fucking worthless human rights crap. Now it’s going to be a ‘human right’ to fucking water.

When I’m dying of hunger and thirst in the middle of the next fucking drought, caused by all those white fucking NGO SUVs farting fucking CO2, it’ll be so fucking comforting knowing that the UfuckingN has oh so graciously granted me a human right to water. It’ll be so fucking helpful. You think they might set up an entire power crazed and tax guzzling Secretariat to administer this new right and further subvert national sovereignty? No? Dream on.

Freedom of Association.

Freedom of Expression.

They are what matter, and they are being whittled down into nothingness. And notice the core word in both of them? Where does it say ‘right’? Nowhere. Freedom baby, freedom.

Leave me with my freedoms and I’ll find my own fucking water.

    Gawd! Look at her pic.

    If that is not a smug Pc Twat who you want to slap on first glance, I dont know who is.

    Come into the garden Maude,

    See how my sprinklers flow!

    So let me see if I’ve got this right, lordy Ms Maudie,

    If I stop paying my Water Utility Bills and the company cuts me off, you say I should be able to sue them for my ‘uman Rights and force them to re-connect me free of charge and provide me with water gratis forevermore! Is that right?

    Cool! I’m always up for saving a bit of money. But er, after you on this one Maude. You give it a try first and the rest of us will see how you get on with greatest of interest.

    See we all know that running what used to be called the Water Board isn’t exactly rocket science. After all, all you need are a few holes in the ground that you can fill with water and some pipes and pumps and taps to get it to where it’s needed. We’ve been doing it since Roman times after all (you must have heard of Aquaducts?).

    But Reservoirs and pipes and the engineering all needs to be bloody paid for doesn’t it, you daft bint! They dont magic themselves out of thin air do they?

    So who do you think is going to pay for all this? Yes I knew you’d say that. Nasty ‘ol ‘uman rights denier, Me!

    We’ve been digging wells for people for bloody years. What have they been doing with ‘em? Filling the damn things in again?

    Spot-on, RAB. As with all these “human rights” to economic goods, someone is going to be saddled with the inalienable duty to provide them. And there’s a convenient little word for the absolute duty to produce economic goods regardless of the cost to oneself: slavery.

    Leftists aren’t greatly endowed with clarity of thought, I find. (Neither am I most of the time, if I’m honest, but I’m way better at it than your average pinko.)

    United Utilities – the absolute cunts they are – have a hosepipe ban in Cheshire. It is Belgian cart horse absolutely pissing down round here. Jebus Chriscringle on a fusion powered pogo-stick… I recently had to clean out the fucking wheelie bin by stealth beause it had maggots in it. Thank you Cheshire East for fortnightly collections – thank you, you utter frigging cunticulated twatters. When I lifted the lid to Domestos the bastardo I was hit by a fucking Biblical plague. And I’m talking the fucking book of cunting Exodus. There were fucking things in there. Things I tells ya! There was “matter” and the “matter” was moving. I almost torched the fucker with 2 stroke mix. That”s how bad it was.

    It was not fucking pleasant. It was indeed truly repugnant. It was not a pheasant plucker (or indeed his son). It was utterly rank and the Dame Judy was truly horrible.

    It was fucking dreadful. It is something a woman ain’t s’posed to see!

    And I’ve been to Georgia…

    (I have actually)

    Though not California.

    And don’t forget the newest human right – cheap travel privileges from your employer!

  6. Peter Risdon says:

    You might be interested in the exchange I had with Norm Geras on this subject. (Hope you don’t mind me linking to my own blog.)

  7. NickM says:

    Seeing as we link to your blog then we hardly mind!

  8. Peter Risdon says:

    Nick, thanks. (BTW, my blog address has changed.)

  9. NickM says:

    Yeah, I know Peter. Our Blogroll is a scandal.

  10. Paul Marks says:

    At base there is a serious point here.

    What is a “right” in politics?

    Is a right (as in the British Bill of Rights, long forgotten, or the American Bill of Rights, partly ignored) a LIMITATION on government powers – or is it a REASON for government powers.

    Are rights protections from government attack – or are they claims on government (read taxpayers) resources?

    They can not be “both” (as with modern mixed up Human Rights declarations and conventions) as that makes no sense.

    The statists wish to move away from a “negative” conception of rights (rights as limits on government power) to seeing rights in a “positive” way – i.e. as lots of nice things the government should do for you.

    Water is a perfect wedge issue.

    “Are you saying people should be allowed to die of thirst – of course there is a right to water”.

    But once you have conceded that – the whole struggle (the definition of what a “right” is) has been lost.

  11. Paul Marks says:

    What is going on is this.

    The virtue of justice (of resecting the property of others – not attacking their body or goods) is being DELIBERATLY confused with the virtue of charity (of helping others).

    Both justice and charity are VITAL – BUT THEY ARE DIFFERENT THINGS.

    “Rights” are from the virtue of Justice – not the virtue of Charity.
