A largely infrequent blog that serves to document those thoughts of the writer that exercise him much! The writer had somehow managed to get a Master’s degree in Public Policy from the Australian National University and therefore feels qualified enough (wrongly so) to hold forth on matters related to the topics of public policy & good governance. As a freedom loving individual and one who simply detests double standards of any kind, the topics of various human freedoms and dishonesty/double standards also weigh heavily on his mind. A few of his favourite quotes:

“Freedom is….. not an endlessly expanding list of rights — the “right” to education, the “right” to food and housing. That’s not freedom, that’s dependency. Those aren’t rights, those are the rations of slavery — hay and a barn for human cattle. There is only one basic human right, the right to do as you damn well please. And with it comes the only basic human duty, the duty to take the consequences.” ~ PJ O’Rourke

“Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” ~ Benjamin Franklin
