allowed to have (but never you) … active service

unless you are a signed up ostentatiously demonstrative part of The Herd*.

Snipped from this morning’s Southland Times

“You are violating the IFLA (International Federation of Library Associations) Code of Ethics that says “In order to promote inclusion and eradicate discrimination librarians and other information workers ensure that the right of accessing information is not denied and that equitable services are provided for everyone whatever their age, citizenship, political belief, physical or mental ability, gender identity, heritage, education, income, immigration and asylum-seeking status, marital status, origin, race, religion or sexual orientation.” 

—concerning the refurbished and ever-so-with-it (actually the ultimate in inoffensive PC, too) Invercargill Library.


(and referring to a faded generation) naval Captain S. W. Roskill was asked of his (RN cruiser’s crew which at the time was almost exclusively New Zealanders) “And how is your crew?” to which the (traditional, but superlative) Captain gave the rueful reply: “Five hundred individuals!”

Different age …

We are not (R) NOT allowed to have opinions. Not today. Not in New Zealand. So if the foul filthy chain-smoking stinking unshaven unwashed grime ridden flea dripping drunken snot dribbling drooling booze reeking ‘person’ falls over you in the library, or anywhere … smile sweetly and demonstrate your tolerance and acceptance—and especially, try to encourage such bold/brave individuality and initiative.

For myself I (do and always shall) reserve the right to form my own opinions, weighing against my own values**.

(If you don’t like that—go suck eggs. Bad eggs. Really bad eggs …)

*   And a values-free zone i.e. (dare I say it?) valueless.

** Which I’m happy to re-value if ever demonstrated false.

  1. Opinions weighted against values?

    My dear dog, this means you are advancing only your own privilege which is oppressing others, don’t you know, which means by holding your own opinions weighed against your values means you by your own admission have become the Victimizer creating Victims. Bad dog. You must regain the moral high ground, wave away your values, give up your opinions, and follow the Big Dog, those of the Social Justice Warrior breed who will tell you what to think, say, and do especially against those pack-less mongrels who fail to heed the call and come to heel properly as any Good Dog should. And don;t you want to be a Good Dog?

    1. You’ve made my fur itch all over. So I’ve now ripped up my pedigree, chewed my collar to bits and pooped all over my walkies chain. I’m leaving home, heading to the forests to join the packs still roaming free, a pack of Freedom’s breathing freeish air … and if I should meet that Big Dog face to face I’ll explain to him gently why not to mix it with a bull terrier. (Not an old-fashioned one at any rate…)

      Victims, you say? Let me strew the ground and fill the gaps with their stinking corpses, cry havoc and let loose the dogs of … … oops, down boy … heel … HEEL! (And spit that out while you’re at it—they’re poison …) Brrrr. Don’t get me started …
