It has always been the fate of minority faiths to defend their right to religious liberty from oppresion from Popular Orthodoxy and encroaching Legalistic mobocracy.
American Seventh Day adventist Alonzo T Jones delivered a classic defence of religious liberty in opposition to the establishment of a National Sunday Law in 1889.
“In 1889, A.T. Jones spoke before a United States Congressional subcommittee; the topic of discussion was the “Breckinridge Bill” which proposed the compulsion of Sunday observance in the Washington, D.C. environs. Jones’s testimony helped to defeat this bill, and Jones became known for his abilities in defense of and knowledge regarding freedom of religion. In 1892, he was again called to speak before the U.S. Congress regarding the Sunday closure of the Chicago World’s Fair, known as “The Columbia Exposition”.

Are you suggesting this is justification to cry out “Death to Muslims”?
How do you differentiate yourself from the hater and the fanatic?
We must walk a higher path.
It is a fundamental principle that when seeking to over throw an evil, you must never assimilate the evil yourself.
That is to fall from the position of righteousness and to become a hypocrite.
Furthermore is your own faith defined by the Religious Zealots whom claim to represent Christianity?
Is your faith even defined by what the so-called majority of Christians claim to believe?
Mine is certainly not!
Thus why would you assume these Muslim fanatics truly represent the Muslim faith?
Is that not Duplicity on your part?
The Higher road may seem to most much too difficult…. an absurdity to even attempt, yet does the fact that it is difficult make it the wrong way to go?
Because the Low road of reciprocal Hatred appears much ‘easier’… much more satisfying, and direct… does this make it acceptible for the Christian to travel?
Are you allowing these haters to sow hate directly into your own heart?
Don’t you have control of your own feelings?
“Vengence is mine saith the Lord, I will repay thee”
I don’t find any place in Pauls’ writings where we are called to Hate the lost.
(I must confess to my own shortcoming in this area too)
Let us not render evil for evil but overcome evil with Good.
“If it be possible, as much as lieth in you. Live peacefully with all Men.”
Boston Marathon. The Horror of Religious Violence and War.
I add that even if it is not possible to live peacefully with some people because they are hell bent on your enslavement and destruction, yet still, though we must defend ourselves, we must not become like them, and take the first opportunity for peace.
To allow the Terrorists to sow Religious hatred and intolerance in our hearts, or to make us so fearful as to accept a more tyrannical Police State in the name of ‘Security’… is to retreat in the battle of Good over Evil.
It is to loose faith.
Satan Laughing Spreads His Wings.
I bow my head in sorrow for the Lives lost and pray for the injured and Maimed in Boston.
I also pray for God to raise up Brave Preachers to preach grace to the lost, and to put his protecting hands upon those enlightened Muslims whom seek an end to Religious fanaticism and who work for peace.
I have just posted a reply to a private facebook Status, which I cannot share here.
The Status was by a Maori who had just descovered that the word ‘Maori’ was ‘invented’ by the Pakeha, and this descovery has made them want to divest themselves of that ‘fully colonised’ title and instead to redefine themselves as “TANGATA WHENUA”. (People of the Land)
It seems to have escaped them that the Pre-colonial Maori people did not call themselves “TANGATA WHENUA” either.
That term was used to describe the people who were already here when Maori arrived in their Waka. Back in the Day Maori took great pride in the fact that they were decendants of great navigators whom had migrated here, yet today that part of Maori traditional pride has been conveniently forgotten because the political scheem to claim ‘indigenous rights’.
The Status finnishes with an expression of love to Maori ‘Peeps’ and an appeal to them to ‘De-colonise yourselves’.
This Status is a sad yet powerful testimony to toxic anti-colonization indoctrination which is systematically generating an apartheid hatred and Race relations disaster in New Zealand and setting up Maori Children to perpetuate the poverty and terrible statistics which are the lot of many today.
The ‘closing the Gaps’ socialist policies, and political favoritism has not led to Maori betterment, but to entrenched dependence and a hateful racist and victim mindset … not self reliant empowerment … not High personal ethics.
My reply is below.
I know this a very sensitive subject.
May I say a few words from my own perspective.
It is true that Missionaries from England introduced, not only many new helpful skills , but also many new words. They ‘invented’ the written Maori language and thereby saved much Maori culture from being lost by the passage of time.
The tribes of Pre Treaty times were very keen to have a missionary living in their communities. They were quick to appreciate the great store of wisdom they brought, and to assimilate many of their ways… like wearing English clothing, Their Buildings (The design of the Meeting house we all love is a post-European design, they did not exist prior to the Missionaries).
What this proves is that our ancestors were very smart and progressive, and wisely learned and assimilated things of value from the Europeans… not just cows, apples, nails… but Ideas, values, etc…and this was good for Maori.
We must understand that a Good Culture is always progressing, not stagnating, not trapped by backward superstition, not adverse to new enlightened ideas or better ways of doing things.
Thus it is a credit to our ansestors that they were quick to abandon many of their primitive traditional ways and embrace the advantages That British civilisation offered.
It is so sad that Many Maori are being taught today to have a dreamy idea that to be a ‘real Maori today we must picture ourselves as being like our stone age ancestors, and seek to ‘De-colonise’ ourselves.
Sad because the truth is We modern Maori have gained so much from colonization, yet we are taught by the political activists to think colonization was all bad… all an evil plot. This is how the Maori people are being deceived into supporting the Separatist movement, and are being steered away from the most vital and important realities they need to understand to prosper via their own efforts rather than seeking Political interventions, hand outs, and favoritism.
Modern Maori Boys need to see themselves as Doctors, Engineers, scientists, Electricians… not warriors.
We Maori ought to first think of ourselves as Honest hard working individuals… not as members of a race.
That is secondary.
The first is something we have control and self responsibility for.
The second is merely a fortunate birthright.
And it is essential that we ought to treat everyone else with equal respect… irrespective of their race, and teach our children this respect as well because without this important humanitarian value they are in danger of becoming hateful racists.
It was belief in the Equality of all human beings which brought the Missionaries to New Zealand to share the Gospel of Christ with the Maori people whom were lost in darkness and superstition.
Thus I am saying it is a good thing to teach our children to take pride in their Maori heritage, yet not good to teach them that this is of the highest importance.
There is a whole layer of personal/ universal values which they must take even greater personal pride in because they will shape and define who they are *as individuals* and how they will treat others.
They need to learn skills like engineering, science, etc which will help them to provide for themselves and their families … and take pride in being Modern independent self reliant and humanitarian Maori, whom compete and hold their own in society on equal terms with other Kiwi… not blaming others for their own lack of achievement… happy to struggle and save, and slowly become more prosperous through good values, thrift, and honest hard work… and always being loving towards others in our society.
This is my vision of how a want my children to grow up.
I want them to be enlightened, honest and caring… not racist… not trapped in a mythical past. I hope they take what is good from Maori tradition, yet forsake all the negative and twisted Political propaganda which attempts to say Colonization was only evil and generates serious race hatred.
In my view to be a Real Maori it does not require any special rights, or Laws.
I know what I have written here will be very difficult for some Maori to swallow.
It is so contrary to the view of history they have been taught , and to the twisted politically motivated idea that We are supposed to put our Sanitized/ idealized ‘primitive Maori heritage’ first… to be on the Maori electoral roll… to support treaty separatism… if we want to claim to be ‘Real Maori’.
Thus I offer a complete alternative in which I dream of A New Zealand with one law for all, and that Maori can enjoy and revel in their heritage without demanding political favoritism or special rights… or Millions of dollars stolen from Everyone via taxation.
My vision is one of racial harmony.
I know that I am virtually alone at present in my vision.
I know some reading this will hate me for my views.
That make me very sad, because I seek to enlighten the Maori people so that they can save themselves from the political evils of racial separatism and race based laws… save themselves from welfare dependence, poor health, terrible crime statistics, etc…. which cannot be fixed via Political interventions but must be done by Maori themselves taking personal responsibility for their own predicaments and determining to make the ethical changes, and put in the hard yards, and teach their children self reliance… not hatred.
This is the way ahead for Maori.
I sincerely believe this, and spend my life preaching this gospel of self responsibility, of equality before the Law, of the ethics of Humanity first.
Shock Horror! I have found a reason to support a treehugger!
In a not at all favourible post to the NZ Center for Political Research Mike Butler writes…
“Maori in regions where jobs are limited who are growing and selling cannabis to keep their whanau fed shouldn’t be punished for their entrepreneurship, Green Party co-leader Metiria Turei told Maori TV on Monday night.
“It has become an income supplement for whanau particularly in rural areas where they have very little income and few job prospects, particularly in the back blocks, and we have to very careful how we manage that,” Turei said on the Native Affairs show.
“There are some real skills there, some real entrepreneurial skills and some real horticultural skills. These are the skills that people have and they are trying to do the best for their families to make a sufficient income and they are under threat all the time but there are few choices that they have,” she said.
What are the “real horticultural skills” Turei is talking about? I guess this involves taking a cannabis seed, germinating it in potting mix in a yoghurt pottle, transplanting, feeding, watering, and harvesting. Anyone who has a vegetable garden could grow cannabis.
What are the “real entrepreneurial skills”? After the harvest and packaging the crop in tinfoil, these entrepreneurs simply go into town on the party circuit, offer around some dope, pass out a few tinnies on tick to return on payday to collect cash and sell more, while delivering wholesale orders to tinnie houses dotted around State-house areas. …”

Without doubt this is one of the most sensible opinions I have ever herd from a rabid Greenie.
I must congratulate Green Party co-leader Metiria Turei for her brave and absolutely righteous statements against the persecution of Pot growers and dealers.
She is 100% right.
That her comments are creating a stink among the ignorant and bigoted supporter of Cannabis prohibition is a testimony to just how small minded and nasty many people are.
The truth is Pot is much less dangerous than Alcohol and it is the very height of bigorty for the wowzers to condemn Pot yet reach over and put a bottle of wine or a box of beer into their trolley.
These Hypocrites who have no conscience about using Police brutality to impose their Nasty bigotry upon others disgusts me to the very core!
They pretend that Legalisation will bring the sky down upon our heads!
It matters not that their oppression destroys much more families than drug abuse ever could.
It matters not that the Police could concentrate on catching thieves and violent offenders.
What matters to these Nazis is that the state makes Pot users suffer for thier defiance.
I must confess to virtually *hating these Anti-freedom and oppressive scum!* May God forgive me.
They are the lowest of the low. They are in fact *Criminals* because they support the violation of other peoples rights and liberties.
They support Bad Law and tyranny.
Up yours Prohibitionist scum!
Hate to break it to yall but everyone is smoking up a storm!
New Zealand Top’s the world in Cannabis use… in spite of your Nasty War on Drugs!
Prohibition has not stopped anything!
You simply waste Police time and Taxes.
You destroy the lives of peaceful people and push them into criminal associations.
You must be some of the stupidest, Pig headed, and most malevolent people on earth!
The lies against the Jews which underpinned the fanaticism and extreme violence of The Nazis under Hitler are being replicated by the Maori separatist movement, and the endorsment of their ‘grievances’ by consecutive Labor and National led governments.
Waitangi separatism has resulted in a Race relations crisis, in Massive extortion, in the mass manufacture of corrupt law and institutions, in the enslavement of thousands of Maori in socialist dependence, and most seriously still… in the growth of fanatical race hatred and a propensity for violence.
The Maori people are being manipulated by malicious, and dangerous radicals and are being led down a very dark path.
They are being told that this is a process of ‘righting the wrongs of the past’, when in fact it ism nothing short of a despicable demonstration of race hatred, and grab for wealth and power.
I identified this ideological cancer well over a decade ago, and have ever since dedicated myself to exposing this evil for what it is, and busied myself attempting to awaken the Maori people to the truth.
I was the Libertarianz party spokesman on Maori affairs for approximately ten years, and since my resignation have remained vocal as an Independent Libertarian and Christian.
I would like to share with you part of what has been the personal cost of my stand against the Radical separatists, and the established/ entrenched doctrines of Socialist Indigenous Rights which underpins New Zealand’s ever expanding system of Apartheid… under the guise of ‘honoring the treaty’.
Today I received several comments to a blog post I wrote about the Tame Iti and the ‘Tuhoe terrorists’, in which I was explaining exactly how dangerous are the anti-colonialist lies and the socialist doctrines of indigenous rights, ‘self determination’, etc are. I was explaining why I was not at all surprised that Tame iti and the radical Greens were involved in plotting a campaign of violence.
Today I received two ‘Comments’ from a very ‘Brave’ person called ‘Collar Shirt’.
The nature of his comments are very telling.
They show what race hatred really is.
They expose what people like myself face when we dare to criticize Maori Radicalism.
It is like a letter written by a member of the KKK against a white American whom expressed support for Martin Luther king.
It is like a letter written by a member of a fanatical Islamic sect against a liberal Muslim whom dared to suggest that Christians have a right to exist in peace.
The enlightened humanitarians among mankind who refuse to cower in silence, and instead bravely step forward and dare to challenge the haters… all must run the gauntlet and risk everything for the sake of truth, justice, humanity, and progress.
They are torn between a sense of selfish guilt… that perhaps their High ideals are bringing danger upon their wives and children…and that maybe they should shut up… and simply blend back into the crowd.
But then they realise that Silence only makes the Evil ones more successful in their plans, and that unless brave souls stand up and set an example… their silence condemns their loved ones, friends, and neighbors to even greater perils and injustice.
“Evil prevails when Good men do nothing”.
What these brave people need is for their fellow countrymen, fellow brethren, to not allow these ‘torch bearers’ in their midst’s to be left alone and unsupported, but ought to rally around them, and to add their voices to the cause.
Collar shirt’s 2 Comments are below, and my reply follows.
I hope readers will both appreciate my cause, and will determine to get involved and help me and other brave Kiwi, like John Ansell, defeat the lies of The Radical Maori separatist movement, and the corrupt politics of Treaty separatism which has being foisted upon us by Labour, National, Act, NZ First, The Greens, The Maori Party, Mana,etc…

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
I would like to make a complaint about the RACIST nature of this article which is in very bad taste, lacking in facts and based on innuendo and to compare a person to a murderer is asking for trouble. – but most of all it doesn’t stick to the kaupapa of the rules – this article is “unwholesome” and “does not build others up” in fact it does the complete opposite of discriminating against a fellow human being – and has absolutely NO BENEFIT WHATSOEVER to any right minded and virtual thinker.
Tim Wikiriwhi Christian Libertarian – i will hand on your message to the Iti whanau in Ruatoki and don’t be surprised if they come looking for you and ask you to say what you just wrote to their face. I will make you my special project to read & check all your other articles too to make sure you are not spreading your RACIST HATRED poison around that ends up on the web – you piece of SH*T!
Tim Wikiriwhi’s Reply:
What is your real name ‘Collar shirt’?
Very brave talk coming from someone hiding behind a pseudom.
And your threats prove the validity of my statements Re: the Violent mentality of the Racist radicals.
Your threats are a testimony to the stark fact that while you want so called ‘Maori rights’ to be recognised, you don’t recognise any one else’s rights (like mine) to free speech, etc.
Thats called hypocracy.
I have been threatened many times in the past… face to face with radicals at Waitangi and other places.
I have always spoken my mind in the open… not the shadows, and will continue to do so irrespective of threats like you have delivered above.
I have spoken many times publicly, on Marae, and on TV before my peers.
See a TV one debate Here:
My reports about Iti’s intentions are based upon Media releases regarding the recordings the police got of conversations between Iti and his crew.
If it had not been for the bungling of the Legislation, and the bungling of the police Iti and crew would have faced much more severe charges… including discussion of kidnapping John Key and ‘practicing’ by killing white people.
I don’t suppose you bothered to use our search engine to find out what I have written about Tame Iti’s conviction on Fire arms charges… Here…
You would see that I actually *condemned* the basis on why he was actually sent to jail! I defended the right of peaceful people to own firearms, and even to be members of private militia. Thus I show my integrity is to justice, and though Tame Iti is a dangerous radical, yet still I have no desire for anyone to be jailed on bad laws or bad judgments.
Yet I dont expect that my integrity in this post will impress you either.
You fanatical haters only want to hear your own hate… you are not interested in tolerating dissenting views…. a lot like the Nazi’s whom hated the Jews, and who likewise could not tolerate any criticism of their mentality, or methods.
Think about that.
Think about what race hatred has done to the world?
This is the very evil I am seeking to save the Maori people from.. the manipulations and hate mongering of violent racist radicals whom blame everyone else but themselves for their own lack of achievement, violence and misery.

Objectivist Libertarianism is a cold, childish, irrational reflex to Socialism, rather than a Humanitarian Ideology.
It really should be called Objectivist ‘Libertine-ism’.
Ayn Rand was a Sophist in every horrible and deluded way.
She would redefine Good words and then pretend her new definition proved these things were Bad! She also re-defined Bad words so that they then became ‘Good’
Eg Faith, Altruism, and selfishness.
It takes a while for some people to realise what she is up to.
Many Happily go along with her charade because they are so enthralled with her fantastic claims of being able to discover an atheistic basis for Objective morality…which also creates a sophisticated argument that Bible based ethics… and belief in God are Evil!
It’s like an Opiate to them.
How it is that a philosophy which condemns the parable of the Good Samaritan as being evil, and be believed as being the work of Genius defies Credulity!
The Bible has the Explanation.
“And this is the Condemnation: that light is come into the world yet men love darkness rather than light, because their deeds are Evil”
“Professing themselves to be wise, there became fools”
True Libertarianism… the Spirit which motivated the Abolitionists was a caring/ loving spirit which worked to alleviate the suffering and injustice of humanity, not a philosophy of selfishness and Egoism!
How absurd Ayn Rand is!
How sheepish and superstitious are her adherents!
They must Bastardise History.
Rand did not discover an atheistic foundation for Objective morality.
Objectivists are not even Idealists. They are pragmatists.
She is a blind leader of the blind and both shall fall into the ditch.

In my opinion Ellie Goulding typifies the BZP experience.
Sight, sound, and stamina are enhanced.
Everything is shiney.
Alcohol consumption is minimised.
Many friends have raved on about how great an experience they had going to concerts, etc when I brought along my plastic jar of ‘The Good stuff’.
Back in those happy times this was completely legal.
Of course the Wowzers could not tollerate that!
The following is a pamphlet I wrote back in 2007-2008 hoping to rally public support to keep BZP legal in New Zealand, It is preceeded by a letter I also wrote at the time.
Libertarians were unsuccessful in halting the Ban…no surprise, considering the question was being ‘investigated’by the Draconian Nanny Statist and Cold war socialist Jim Anderton.
This was at the height of Nanny State Power… under the Labour Clark/ Wilson/ Yates Regime.
I put this up on our blog today because I have just recently made contact with a person whom was a major player in the new industry of legal highs in New Zealand. He was a very impressive personality in that he was able to argue the merrits of his business, and counter many of the prohibitionists claims that his products were unsafe.
I am keen to discuss this subject with such a knowledgable insider.
I also post it for posterity’s sake, as a testimony to some more of my exploits as a libertarian activist.
It represents an ongoing battle against the Drug war which is not only tyrannical, but serves Criminal interests, and works against healthier legal alternatives to alcohol and many illicit substances.
Many of the claims I make in this pamphlet have proven to be true.
It’s rationale is applicable to exposing the evils of the War on drugs in general, thus it is still very relevant, and the Re-legalisation of BZP and Cannabis are still matters of unsettled and ongoing injustice.
I think my piece suited the Pamphlet format better than this Blogpost… Oh well.

How happy it is to be able to purchase party pills over the counter, knowing the profit is not going to criminal organisations but helping honest businessmen and there families to prosper.
No need to call the police!
This is what it would be like if cannabis was legalised as well!
Since adding party pills to my shopping list I have noticed a reduction in my consumption of alcohol.
It is easy to regulate the level of enjoyment, one for a nice cruise, two for a stag night, etc
The buzz can be as good as any joint, which makes a mockery of the prohibition of Cannabis!
The Anti-Fun brigade fears that New Zealanders will see the benefits of having a legal recreational drug trade and so urgently seek to raise a big enough stink to make criminals of those peacefully engaged in such activities.
Little wonder why young people show no regard for accepted social norms or the Political Correct rules and regulations of Nanny State!
They are phoney! They are oppressive! They suck!
They are the obsessive delusions of twisted little busy bodies!
Get Off My Cloud and stop perverting the law!

Self Control and Freedom vs the Police State.
Party Pills and the Law
By Tim Wikiriwhi
(LIBZ LOGO HERE)
“We’ve got to fight for the right to party!” …Party pills and the Law.
by Tim Wikiriwhi, Libertarianz party spokesman..
The Spin-doctors already have their speeches ready …of wheels flying off their axels and drug crazed terror at our door, ZERO TOLERANCE, Send in Red Squad!
Waiting for an enquiry report on the issue was merely a formality.
Why waste time with the truth when pushing one’s own barrow is much more fun and politically acceptable to the sheeple?
The availability of legal Party pills (BZP) has made a very interesting challenge against drug prohibition in general, and it is for this reason alone not because of any great evil caused by BZP that the Prohibitionists are hell bent on banning them irrespective of right reason and justice.
They are relying on their old tactics of playing on the fears and ignorance of conservative New Zealanders.
To call New Zealand a liberal nation in the light of such thing’s as the Smoking ban is to deny the fact we Kiwi’s are but hen pecked children tied fast to the apron strings of Nanny State. It’s time we all grew up and said good bye to that old hag!
Enough is enough!
Al Capone and Mr Asia will love to see Party pills banned.
That will mean more profits coming their way in sales of their illicit products like P, E, or H. Likewise many Breweries and Distilleries (A dealers) would be expecting a boon as young people are forced to drink alcohol as their only legal recreational drug. Our state is directly responsible for this monopoly!
The ban will increase the potential for huffing solvents, LPG etc.
BZP will become another potentially exploitable product for criminal organisations and another motive for armed robbery, and murder as prices soar.
Because BZP is pleasurable, demand will always be there.
Banning it will not change this, just as drug tests don’t stop drug problems in prisons or worksites.
(Only a personal work ethic can stop drug use at work, and only a growing personal preference to be drug free will reduce demand for alcohol and drugs in general)
Use of BZP will continue via the black market, yet product safety and quality will be reduced as a consequence of not being able to manufacture it in a legitimate fashion.
Children will become exposed to both the Underworld and to a Draconian police force.
Victims of State oppression have their sense of justice seriously undermined creating a mindset for a life of anti-social behaviour.
These are the very real adverse affects to be expected to result from the ban… an increase in injustice, a perversion of police duties, and a reduction of social order and further entrenchment of our nations alcoholism.
The cotton wool of Nanny state becomes more suffocating and the ethics of self responsibility takes another hit!
It is time NZ society had a rethink about how recreational drugs are controlled and managed. It is time they stopped bigots like Jim Anderton’s use of perverse law to persecute and criminalize our young adults and put them on the wrong side of the law. This is to strip our children of their rights and expose them to tyranny.
Jim’s draconian ‘cures’ only worsens the diseases!
Police must be retrained to distinguish and police real crimes whilst protecting the liberty of individuals peacefully pursuing their own happiness, what ever, however they choose to spend their time.
Jim Anderton’s Ban will further stretch police resources.
Education needs to be severed from political interference that currently promotes dictatorship instead of self reliance.
It is not the job of the Government or the Police force to make up for the deficiencies in Self-moral responsibility that flow from generations of ignorance and lack of parental responsibility.
Such lesions not imbibed at home means a painful learning curve out in the big wide world…yet these lessons must be learned. They cannot be faked. The level of freedom and civilisation in any society is proportional to the collective sum of the moral codes of it’s individual members including their level of political enlightenment.
This is fundamental of Human Co-existence. As individuals we are sovereign over our own bodies and must function via our own inner compass as individuals, not as a herd via pontifications from a bully with a big stick.
Jim Anderton’s proposals to ban BZP destroys these vital ethics by making the state into a tyranny and a mockery of law and order.
In Jim Anderton’s political philosophy we are merely sheep to be herded at his command…and of course we are expected to adore him as ‘the good shepherd”(sic)
Personally I hold nothing but contempt for such a simpleton tyrant!
No apparent gain resultant from unjust powers can ever justify their wickedness even if it is only a small fringe minority who suffer!
Forget Jim’s Ban!
How ought we deal with the current levels of social disorder in regards to alcohol?
How ought we deal with BZP and recreational drugs in general?
What we do with our own bodies is up to us by right!
Helen Clark does not own your body, you do and because the health of your body is your concern, you ought to take good care of it and understand that your choices may have either good or evil effects upon one of your most precious possessions…your own body!
Thus it is that whether we are contemplating skydiving or cigarette smoking, the same ethic of free choice and self-responsibility apply.
Libertarian philosophy is capable of correcting the social mindset of this generation, literally reforming criminals and inspiring self-esteem founded upon self responsibility.
It is this philosophy of rights that must underpin the ethics of adults who use recreational drugs, weather Alcohol…BZP….or Rota power.
People with these ethics clearly established in their heart so as to be a part of their self esteem, while they may swear and become bad mannered, they don’t become violent, even when they have had too much to drink because such behaviour has become abhorrent, and appears barbarous to their inner being. (Respect thy neighbour)
It is this kind of inner being that is vital to civil society i.e. moral awareness.
Libertarianism compliments and embodies universally accepted ethical concepts and creates the liberty for individual personal beliefs to function as the real guides to life and Higher Laws rather than mere human convention backed up by brute force e.g. I am a Christian Libertarian …you may be a Hindu or Islamic one, etc.
We must also learn that all Citizen’s have the very real right to self defence and to bare the means of self defence and so if a drunken hoon is shot while trying to rob a Gas station, Liquor store or Dairy, that is a lesion in justice for everyone especially any would-be bandits.
The Libertaian party is a strong advocate of personal, home, business defence and are fighting for these rights to be Constitutionally protected ending the current denial and criminalisations of the status quo.
The Libertarianz party say the state stranglehold over our health system must be abolished. Thousands on waiting lists are being dropped.
State Healthcare is a giant scam and a complete failure!
The health system overload is constantly used as vindication for suppression of our rights and liberties, re smoking, drinking, fatty foods etc.
By removing the state from health we remove this source of tyranny and lay our healthcare to the proper door…our own!
Smokers will probably have to pay higher heath insurance (yet Smoke Taxes would be abolished so they probably will be able to afford the extra costs!)
It’s their life…It’s their choice.
The travesty of his ‘due process and the facade of ‘Justice being seen to be done’… like a Nazi’s trial against ‘enemies of the state’… the ban of BZP was a forgone conclusion from the moment he was appointed to lead the public inquiry.
Jim Anderton’s ban is corrupt, anti freedom, anti private property, anti free trade, and must be defeated.
Just as the Farmers have successfully protested against dog tagging, so must shop keepers and party patrons alike become activists in the Libertarian attempt to chop Jim Anderton and his ‘fun police’ down to size!
Let’s stop his meddling!
And in the long term, lets fight for Constitutional chains to bind government from attempting such violations of our right and liberties in the future!
Important Note: Any youth reading this pamphlet needs to understand that their behaviour and that of their friends has a lot to do with the outcome of this issue and others such as the drinking age.
Because we live under a government that wields unrestricted powers young people are in constant danger of being stripped of their rights under the pretext that they are not adult enough to govern themselves. Breaking bottles, Graffiti, etc is for losers and I have no problem with the Police busting such crimes!
Youth need to snap out of their self defeating childishness, and become politically aware, and self responsible. Stop mimicking Idiots of the last generation and start becoming adults of real character in your own right.
You can still have fun and be treated as Adults!
Join the Libertarianz party!
We need both moral and financial support!

Six notable authors, have just published a challenging new book about the way the Treaty of Waitangi has been twisted to be greatly in favour of Maori tribes in the last 30 years. These twistings include the rewriting o…f our history by political “historians”, the never-ending so called Treaty claim process, and privatising and giving away our foreshore and seabed, as well as our native flora and fauna, and the rorts that apply to our sea fishery.
If you are interested in these matters, then this book, “Twi$ting the Treaty – A tribal Grab for Wealth and Power” provides readily readable discussion on these topics. The Cover below.
Warning – the book is factual and is non-PC, one of its charms in my view.
The book is available at a retail cost of $40. It has 414 pages and 16 photo pages.
But with 16 self-contained chapters it does not have to be read all at once.
Where to obtain it:
1 Good bookstores throughout NZ or
2 Write to Tross Publishing, P O Box 22 143, Khandallah, Wellington, 6441 with your order and cheque
3 Also see our website, www.trosspublishing.co.nz for info and to order.
Enjoy your reading.

‘Liberated’ the following speil from my facebook friend Stephen Maire…
It’s Holmes at his best.
the late Sir Paul Holmes – who had a wonderful way with words – wrote the following:
“Waitangi Day produced its usual hatred, rudeness, and violence against a clearly elected Prime Minister from a group of hateful, hate-fuelled weirdos who seem to exist in a perfect world of benefit provision. This enables them to blissfully continue to believe that New Zealand is the centre of the world, no one has to have a job and the Treaty is all that matters.
“I’m over Waitangi Day. It is repugnant. It’s a ghastly affair. As I lie in bed on Waitangi morning, I know that later that evening, the news will show us irrational Maori ghastliness with spitting, smugness, self-righteousness and the usual neurotic Maori politics, in which some bizarre new wrong we’ve never thought about will be lying on the table.
“This, we will have to address and somehow apply these never-defined principles of the Treaty of Waitangi because it is, apparently, the next big resentment. There’ll be lengthy discussion, we’ll end up paying the usual millions into the hands of the Maori aristocracy and God knows where it’ll go from there.
“Well, it’s a bullshit day, Waitangi. It’s a day of lies. It is loony Maori fringe self-denial day… No, if Maori want Waitangi Day for themselves, let them have it.”……
