Imag65g5e3 This morning's Auckland Today business magazine has Marc Ellis discussing his business philosophy:

We're about freedom of choice.  We are becoming quite PC as a nation and run the risk of being dumbed down to the lowest common denominator.  This type of society is based on fear.  We are informed as to what is and is not appropriate by the Government and they attempt to ostracise those who run against the tide.I like to make decisions for myself.  I don't like being told that I shouldn't lie in the sun, shouldn't drink more than seven servings, shouldn't drive a car quickly and shouldn't let my kid walk to school for fear of stranger danger.  Life has the risk of becoming dull and boring if you subscribe to every rule being set by the minority and it creates people who cannot think outside the square.  Is that skill not what this country was founded on?

toon2Refreshing, and all too sadly true.  Here's a cartoon:

Hey PC, speaking of freedom of choice...

Any chance of a full content RSS feed?

you need Marc! Anyone drinks more than seven beers a day I'll vote for him, the rugger buggers will vote for him, and all the chicks will vote for him - that's almost a clean sweep, isn't it?

Done. You'll play havoc with my stats though, Robin. ;^)

Thanks, Feedburner does RSS stats ;-)

Since it's also Google maybe they'll get a bit better integrated in the future.
