Tom McFeely

(Market) Freedom Fighter

There is no such thing as society. There are individual men and women, and there are families. And no government can do anything except through people, and people must look to themselves first. It's our duty to look after ourselves and then, also to look after our neighbour. People have got the entitlements too much in mind, without the obligations, because there is no such thing as an entitlement unless someone has first met an obligation

Tom was a Marxist terrorist. He was incarcerated and spent 53 days on hunger strike which left him in a coma. While catatonic, the evil Brits began playing continuous recordings of Margeret Thatcher reading Hayek’s The Constitution of Liberty. When he awoke he found he had strange entrepreneurial urges and dreams of a mystical Free Market. As soon as he got out of stir he relaunched himself as a full- fledged Capitalist. Tom became a property developer. Fuck fire safety, said Tom, that’s only for the proles. But the evil Big Government regulations meant that the proles couldn’t live in the tinderboxes that Tom had very generously built for them.  In a final act of homage to his new creed, Tom obtained a UK passport and went to the mainland to avail of Elizabeth Windsor’s protection from the hoi polloi who wanted their money back.
