Give yourself a good spanking

The editor of the local newspaper wrote and editorial which was a letter to Sue Bradford with the following sentiments:
On behalf of the fathers of New Zealand, thank you for making us all feel like child abusers . . .

Here is a letter I wrote in reply to his editorial.

I agree wholeheartedly with your editorial to Sue Bradford- but stuff like this annoys me! I live every day fighting evil, legislature like this - stuff that encroaches on the rights of the individual to live how he choses providing he does not use force or fraud upon others, whether I agree with the particular thing or not (it's called a principle). When the bureaucrats hit a nerve with some encroachment on one particular subject that effects somebody (ie the editor,) they jump up and down and make a noise about it! This I call "un-principled." - people who want their freedom on one topic, but are happy to deny others THEIR freedom in something else. The editor does not have the monopoly on this kind of thinking though – it’s quite prevalent these days – that’s why we have a government and a council who SPECIALISE in this kind of unprincipled thought. There is a saying that goes:
First they came for the Catholics, but I wasn't a catholic so I did nothing. Then they came for the Jews, but I wan't a Jew, so I did nothing . . . then they came for me, and there was nobody left to speak up! The price of freedom is eternal vigilance. You can only protect your liberties in this world by protecting the other man's freedom. You can only be free if I am free.

So give yourself a good spanking - in private of course, otherwise you could be arrested.
