The Radical Moderate's Manifesto
One of the most weird things that I experience every day is that my views are considered ‘controversial’. I find this a hilarious reflection on how mad society has become.
I want maths teachers to teach maths, history teachers to teach history, literature teachers to educate children about the best writers, poets and playwrights.
I want the police to investigate actual crimes like rape, burglary, stabbings and muggings, not paint their cars rainbow colours and police jokes, banter in WhatsApp groups and offensive tweets.
I want the media to tell me the facts of what is going on and let me decide what to think about it. If I want a journalist's opinion, which I mostly don't, I'll read opinion columns. Just tell me what's happening.
I want banks to provide bank services, ice cream makers to make ice cream and razor companies to make razors. I want transnational corporations to pay their taxes. I don't want them to tell me what to think - I don't need a moral lecture from Mr Burns off the Simpsons.
I want doctors to help me *choose* the best treatment for me and my family, not enforce a one-size-fits-all solution on me because of Government diktats. I don't need scary advertising campaigns that misrepresent the threat to encourage me to look after my health.
I want the military to spend every waking moment working to get better at killing people who want to kill me, my family and my fellow citizens. I don't care how diverse, progressive or inclusive they are. And I am outright hostile to this if it affects performance.
I want the legal system to reward productive, lawful behaviour and deter unproductive, unlawful behaviour. I want psychopathic, evil and dangerous people to be kept away from me, my family and my fellow law-abiding citizens.
I want politicians to implement the democratic wishes of the people of this country, even when I don't personally agree with them. If the majority of my fellow citizens vote for something I don't agree with, I can campaign against this while accepting the democratic outcome.
I want Government to interfere in my life as little as possible, while recognising that Government is necessary. I want to pay as little tax as lawfully possible, but enough to fund the things only Government can do.
I want an absolute meritocracy. Hard work, dedication and talent must always be rewarded. If you are lazy, don't apply yourself or aren't contributing, you don't deserve to be rewarded as much as people who work their arse off.
I want people to be treated equally. Not as inferior OR superior. Just equal. There is no such thing as positive discrimination, just discrimination. If you want true equality, see previous paragraph.
