What is your political manifesto?

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

What is your political manifesto?

Post by Khmu Nation »

Now my country, Britain, has left the EU for the first time in my life (we joined in Jan 1 1973, I was born in Feb) it has got me thinking about politics and what my politics actually are. Here is a very short list of the sort of thing I believe in:


1) Legalise all drugs
2) Completely abolish the welfare state
3) Devolve central government
4) Free trade with all nations
5) Reduce tax to its absolute minimum, abolish property tax, inheritance tax
6) Reduce the power of the state so it is the state that has to justify itself to the individual rather than the individual that has to justify themselves to the state
7) Abolish health and safety laws
8) Laissez faire in all things
9) Social freedom is the greatest aspiration of all
10) Each person is responsible only for themselves


What about you?

Looks a bit like Cambodia in 2020.

What about you?
1) Criminalise all drugs, including medication, survival of the fittest.
2) Welfare state for all, jobs will be taken by robots.
3) Centralise government under our robot overlords.
4) Tax all trade with other nations to drive domestic trade.
5) Raise taxes on the poorest to the point that even the poor are pushed into action to avoid it, the exact same way as the rich already do.
6) Increase the power of our supreme leader, Lord Buckethead, King of the robots.
7) Health & safety laws to be tightened up to double down on survival of the fittest.
8 ) Draconian laws on everything.
9) Subservience is the greatest aspiration of all.
10) Each person is responsible for themselves, their offspring, and their offsprings' offspring ad infinitum. And their neighbour's dog.

Ive always been in favour of simple rule by fiat by a backwards looking, authoritarian oligarchy, as long as I can smoke weed and take pictures of cool shit, so I came to Cambodia because its too cold in Denver.

As to my personal politics Im a Yank, so I sort of keep it to myself since folks are gonna diss me anyway, no sense making it worse.

I'm apolitical.

I want nothing to do with so called democracy, in terms of voting, endorsing or, generally, wasting energy reading about or thinking about the political sphere.

Make money, look after me and mine.

1. Prioritize and mandate integrity, ethics, personal responsibility, and accountability.
2. Deprioritize wealth and punish greed.
3. Reinforce education, intelligence, science, and logic.
4. Reintroduce and support survival of the fittest.
5. Prohibit the stupid (mainly those who argue with established science, fact, or logic) from having a public voice.
6. Reward hard work, motivation, and accomplishments. Punish laziness.
7. Judge only on character, morals, behavior, and actions with no regard to race, color, orientation, hairstyle, clothing, ethnicity, etc.
8. Demand and reward constructive behavior and prohibit and punish deconstructive behavior.
9. Make all Thursdays free ice cream day.

No mention of Fridays, so I guess you would make that a '' equal rights for men day. ''
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
