"Karen Skinner and the rest of the failed Students' Association in Wellington are more concerned with enslavement and
regulation than they are with emancipation and rights," said Libertarianz Spokesman Andrew Bates today.
"Like most populist career student politicians, Karen advocates 'fighting for a right to free education'. But this
education doesn't grow on trees," says Auckland University Engineering/Commerce student Bates, who points out that it
needs lecturers and tutors, serviced labs and air conditioned theatres. "And she claims a right to all this?" he asks.
"Ms Skinner's so-called right to a free education means this must all be provided by someone else," he says. "The bogus
right she advocates effectively means the right to force another human being to work - without reward or even
acknowledgement - to provide her with her bogus right. Ms Skinner is effectively demanding the Right to Enslave others!"
"One would hope university students could understand the nature of rights, and grasp the importance of rational
persuasion in obtaining their values. Unfortunately her comrades at Canterbury and NZUSA are less concerned with
learning, and more concerned with yearning for other people's earnings."
"I'm only glad my own Voluntary AUSA Fees won't be sponsoring any more of this Marxist drivel," concluded Bates.
