1984 - Individualism is Dead

Individualism is Dead - All Hail Big Brother

Kim Fahey is seen with his at his home in Acton, Calif., in a mountainous arid area north of Los Angeles. Fahey built the eccentric Mojave Desert compound known as Phonehenge West.
 Fahey has been placed on five years' probation, ordered to serve 63 days of community service and pay $84,488 in fines for daring to build a desert home that he loved.

Fahey was forced to tear down his home of more than 30 years, is now retired on $800 a month and has been screwed by his government.  

There is no justice under the bi-partisan Orwellian Big Brother State
  • Art and creativity are now illegal in the Orwellian People's Republic of California.
  • So-called "small government" Republican office holders gleefully lined up to crush any hint at individualism, while Democrats who claim to help the little guy ran for the hills.  

Alan Kimble "Kim" Fahey has spent more than twenty years working, mostly single-handedly, to turn his Acton, California property into the wonderland of habitable sculpture he has named "Phonehenge West." He is retired from a 30-year career as a phone service technician.

Hundreds of people have visited the property and admired the wonderful invention and solid construction of Kim's buildings...even the unfinished segments were beautiful. The "small government" Republican run District Attorney's Office County of Los Angeles and "small government" Republican Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich declared their intent to condemn not only his work, but the man himself to a jail term longer than those handed out for some violent crimes against actual victims.

Now the man who built an eccentric Mojave Desert compound Phonehenge West was placed on five years' probation on Friday and ordered to serve 63 days community service, five of them at the county morgue.

It cost $83,488 to tear down Kim Fahey's structures on the 1.7-acre property in Acton, Los Angeles County prosecutor Patrick David Campbell told a judge during the sentencing hearing in Lancaster. Demolition was completed on March 20.

Superior Court Judge Daviann L. Mitchell told Fahey that he must pay restitution. He ordered a July 27 progress report.

Campbell told the judge it took four big-rigs to haul away 53 tons of telephone poles. Trucks hauled away another 28 loads of debris weighing 280 tons.
The judge could have sentenced Fahey to as much as a dozen years in jail for defying authorities for decades as he created Phonehenge West out of everything from abandoned movie sets to discarded utility poles and other junk that nobody else wanted.
Some praised the compound 50 miles north of downtown Los Angeles as a stunning example of American folk art. The quirky 70-foot tower had stained-glass windows and energy-producing windmills. There were nearly a dozen other buildings, including a replica of a 16th century Viking house.
Fahey said he did obtain building permits when he started Phonehenge West, but the county lost them.
Republicans are Totally Invisible  -  Republicans sit around with their thumbs up their asses totally clueless why they are a minority party in California.  The GOP claims to believe in individualism and freedom, but Republican politicians either went into hiding or came down hard on Fahey.

I have reached my limit.  Fuck both of these bastard political parties.

Enjoy your new 1984 Orwell Ant Farm.
You too can live like worker ants toiling endlessly for hours on end for your Marxist Overlords.  Never question their judgement and always obey their insane "rules" . . . after all, the rules are for your own good.  It must be true.  Your Masters said so.
