Mr Eugenides. Probably the best blogosphere commentary to date, on this sorry story of Corrupt State Scumbags.

Derek Draper quote of the day


In this article, Derek Draper is quoted as saying:-

“You have to wonder just for having an idea, even though it was a silly idea, whether someone deserves to lose their job. It is a very heavy price to pay for something that never actually happened.”

What then, Derek, of people who lose their jobs for (privately) being members of something called the BNP, a corporatist-nationalist left wing party which your attack dogs are afraid of electorally: why? Because, er, it’s er, left wing just like yours and will split your vote where it matters – i.e where you have been ignoring your Old Franchise most of all?

Too much ciabatta? Too long in Tuscany? Too much money? Too rat-arsed to care? Too afraid of Guido?

Czars, inept stalinist-collectivist western governments, and spin. Who will over-Czar the Czars?


David Davis

I had been wondering about this very problem for some time, until I came accidentally across this post on Manhattan Capital. I have no clue what Manhattan Capital is generally about, but if they are scurrilously ironic about today’s Western (should be but aren’t) liberal governments and their fixation with “appearing to do something about” “problems” by appointing “Czars”, then they are on the right side.

Über Czar to be Renamed

By Jennifer Kerfuffle, Universal News Co, Feb. 11, 2008. 1.1PM

The Federal Agency for Renaming Solutions, which is working overtime to find a more attractive title for the bank bailout program TARP, will also tackle the task of renaming the Czar Czar—the Czar that rules over all other Czars. 

The office of the US Czar Czar was recently created to oversee the exponentially growing army of czars appointed to control all aspects of existence. The czars are being given distinctive names, such as Autocrat for the Car Czar, Munarch for the Municipal Bond Czar, Bail Boss for the Bank Czar and Morticia for the Mortgage Czarina. 

“Our staff is working 24 hours a day searching for appropriate names,” said Snaky Mox, the director of FARS. “These are very complex issues for which there is no precedent, so we need to be free to make judgment calls along the way.”

One possible new name for the Czar Czar has cropped up in the blogosphere, where several stories were posted to the effect that FARS has already decided on the new title, which is to be Cza Cza Gabor. 

Ms. Mox said she cannot comment because new names have to get security clearance before they can be made public. She says malicious clones are spreading rumors that are not true, such as the rumor that the Space Czar is named Captain Kirk. FARS announced yesterday that the Space Czar will in fact be named The Great Big Head.

You have to wonder what the mindset is, of persons who link together these three words. “National” + “Dementia” + “Strategy”. It makes me think of dudes who work under the Ministry, in Richard Blake’s new historical novel, “The Terror of Constantinople“, to be published by Hodder & Stoughton on this coming Thursday (5th Feb 2009.)

“I thought that “national dementia” was something invented and posthumously exploited by “Princess” Diana, and then algorithmically-developed and extended by slebs and also by Peter Bazalgette, until I read the DT today.

You have to wonder what a “dementia czar” would look like, or do in his office. As regards what the Libertarian Alliance thinks about czars, we have two things to say:-

(1) We approve of czars IF and only _if_ they are autocratically appointed within and for private organisations, in which environment those who disagree are free to leave, _and_, importantly, the appointing agents are free to dismiss the czar at any time.

For example, I, the editor of this blog, am the LA Blog Czar.

(2) We disapprove of czars as they are commonly employed these days: which is to say, as used by the British State to act as fall guys and take the blame create spinnable headlines for ZanuLieborg by ordering other less powerful robots about so that it looks in the MSM as if something is being done about some intractable problem that the State has compulsively taken on.

There is something profoundly paradoxical about the left’s use of the word “czar”, considering its masturbatory obsession with the theoretical idea of democracy as it imagines what it persists in calling “people power” to be. I’d have thought that the very concept of “czar” – both as derived from the word “Caesar” which came to mean “Emperor”, and from its Imperial Russian connotations, ought to be in the same token profoundly distasteful to the Gramsco-Marxians.

Perhaps we ought to devil up a list of czars. Here’s some:-
