Let me state this from the get go… some of you won’t like what I’m about to say… tuff titties!
I won’t pander to defeatist cowards who don’t have the Balls to stand behind the Brave Freedom Heroes who have put themselves in the fight.
Lets be clear about this…. If you vote for any of the parties that supported Vax mandates and lockdowns (including Act, and NZ First), you will no longer have the right to complain about these evils.
*You* are the problem if you intend to support these evil F237$!
Vote for one of the new parties who are expressly for your rights or shut TF up!
The only way you can maintain your integrity and maintain any claim to be part of the Resistance to the Woke Covid Climate change Globalist’s is if you vote for one of The New Small Freedom parties… Not National. Not Act. Not NZ First.
The most common gripe I hear as to why many people think voting for one of the small New Freedom parties is ‘a waste of your vote’ is because they don’t think any of them will get past the 5% threshold to get people into parliament.
This is Bogus! Not only is it a self-fulfilling/ self-defeatist stupidity… in reality it does not matter if a party gets 5% to still be a valuable vote!
It sure would be nice to get straight into parliament, but The truth is they only need 3-4% to remain a viable fighting force after the election and set them in good stead for growing to cross the line *next election*.
This is a long term game.
Not to appreciate this is plain Naïve.
It takes a monumental amount of work and effort to build credibility and get a party across the line. These parties are only at first base.
*They need us to vote for them* so that they will take heart and carry on the fight long term.
Photo (above) was posted to Twitter (X). It was from Hamilton West where dozens of Labour Party election bill boards were sprayed with Graffiti, others totally destroyed.
Symbolic of many New Zealanders outrage and disgust for Jacinda Ardern’s catastrophic governance of our country over the past 6 years.
Labour are toast.
A friend sent me an email asking who I’m voting for this election.
My reply follows… This is difficult to write as by declaring my views, it will cause some people I respect do be disappointed that I have not come out in full support of them or their team.
This is not because I don’t in support them… the problem is *the Freedom moment is fractured*, making it a nightmare for people like myself who does no want to be part of this this division and wants to work to unite as many Freedom advocates together as we can for under a democracy there is strength in numbers.
Divided we fall.
That this is true has effected my leanings for this election.
I know many friends will disagree with my recommendations below.
This is why freedom and tolerance are essential for friendships and society.
If after the election a single party stands head and shoulders above the rest, that is most likely to be where I will support moving forward.
As the election is close I don’t believe I can sit on the fence in indecision any more… so I’m revealing my preference now for others to contemplate my rationale.
I will still vocally support *These small parties* right up to the elections, and I wish them all success.
Each of them has their merits, and true Freedom advocates whom have my deep respect.
Note: What follows is a reply to an old friend. It’s not meant to be Razor sharp and unassailable… It’s lightweight.
Hey Tim… Who will you be voting for?????
This election is a terrible mess for those of us who want New Zealand to return to ‘the good old days’ of freedom, tolerance, etc.
In my opinion *All* the parties and politicians currently in parliament are corrupt and guilty of complicity with the radical woke agenda, Covid tyranny, massive debt, and expansion of racism. all of which are the legacy of Jacinda Ardern selling our country out to the World Economic Forum and the Great Reset.
So I will not vote for *Any of them*. I hold both National and Act, and New Zealand First as all guilty.
Yet where does that leave me?
The people of New Zealand are most likely to vote our Labour, and they will be replaced with a National-Act Government.
This will be an improvement on the Labour madness but not as great a reform as is needed, and will not save our country from the tentacles of the WEF.
Out of fear that Labour might win, many freedom people will be voting for Nat/Act.
The reasons being 1. They do not deserve our votes.
They will not hold inquiries into the evils of the past 6 years because the themselves went along with those evils… so they will continue the great lies… and we will be in danger of more lockdowns when ever any so-called ‘new Covid strains’ are announced.
2. There are several small new parties that have been formed by good freedom fighters who need support,
Parties that want to fix the real problems.
Parties that want to have investigations and hold the guilty to account.
Parties that actually champion *my Freedom and equality values*
It would be immoral for me to turn my back on these heroic good parties out of fear and vote for Nat/Act.
New Zealand desperately needs *New Blood* in parliament and there are some excellent Heroic New Zealanders who have stepped up.
The sad thing is they have not formed a single strong united party,
These are head strong individuals and there are personality clashes,
So they are leading their own parties, against each other. splitting / weakening the Freedom vote.
Its a real shame… The established parties can celebrate because our division in the freedom movement is self-defeating.
The Leighton Baker Party.
The New Conservatives.
Democracy New Zealand.
Freedoms New Zealand.
As the election approaches internal squabbles cause some of these parties to self destruct.
I still have not made a final decision as to which of these I will vote for.
Yet one will get my party vote.
If any of them have a candidate in Hamilton West. They will get my candidate vote.
If they were united we could guarantee that party would easily get past the 5% mark and into parliament, yet because they are fractured It makes it very hard… and fewer people will vote for any of them because they ‘think’ to do so ‘is a wasted vote’.
I think that is 100% wrong!
New Zealand needs to get new people into parliament. People who believe and support freedom, national independence, defends free speech, defends of our rights to chose our own medical treatments, racial equality before the law, and prohibit the education system from Woke indoctrination,
This being so I will be voting for one of these new parties, and even if they only get 3% I will stand by my vote and be happy I voted for them.
The more of us who do this the stronger result they will get, and it will uphold them to remain in the fight for the next election.
Hopefully some of them will be able to get over their differences and Unite, making them much stronger for 2026.
I may then put myself back in the game too.
The Freedoms New Zealand Party is a coalition of groups with Brian Tamaki and Lawyer Sue Grey.
This party will get a strong result. Some people don’t like Brian Tamaki… understandable… yet the man has done much to show he is for Freedom and New Zealand. Sue Grey is another wonderful Freedom fighter.
New Zealand would be much better off with these people in parliament.
Leighton Baker is Ex New Conservatives Leader… and another great freedom Advocate.
NZ Loyal was founded by Ex TV personality Liz Gunn. Another wonderful Freedom advocate and vocal opponent of Jacinda Ardern.
Liz is full of patriotism and passion, very articulate and has a large and growing following.
Democracy NZ has an Ex National Party MP (Matt King) as Leader, and was doing extraordinarily well with a good chance of getting in to parliament, yet had a big implosion which caused a big loss of support.
New Conservatives have been in the game for several elections. They are an established party, I voted for them last time. Yet after the last election they spat the dummy and lost a lot of their top people… including Leighton baker, who now has his own party. Despite these things I have been strongly considering voting for them again.
The last election was *super suspect*.to the degree I believe there is evidenced of election fraud… I blogged about this evidence… (see Link below)
So My friend… that is how I read the cards as of today.
It really is a difficult choice.
I’m leaning towards *Freedoms New Zealand.* with one caveat… I need to clarify their position on *Co-governance*.
For me resolute opposition to that is morally non-negotiable.
I believe they have a fair chance at getting 5%, I believe their structure will allow them to assimilate some of the other parties into their coalition group… which I believe is the way forward.
This does not mean I have anything against the other small parties… I would love to support them all. Yet that can’t be done.
I have made some efforts to contact some of these parties yet received no feed back.
None of them have approached me to join them… another small party did yet it will not be registered this election, and I declined.
I have contemplated standing as an independent, yet to be fair I don’t have the spare resources to do that.
Anyway I’s great to get your email!
It would have been easier to make a choice… for everyone… if there was one stand out party that clearly had the greater share of top notch candidates, and popular support, yet that is not the case. All the choices have virtues and vises, strengths and weaknesses.
For example I have spent years criisising Brian Tamaki’s political antics over the last 2 decades, yet now I am considering giving his party my vote.
I believe both himself and Sue Grey have stepped up over the recent Tyranny and Woke madness of the Arden Regime and absolute lack of opposition from National and Act.
*Freedom* has become their watchword… so though undoubtedly I will not agree with many of Brian and Sues ideas and opinions, I do not hesitate to suggest that New Zealand would be much much better off with them in parliament compared to the shysters we now suffer.
They are fighting for our Freedom and Rights, and National Sovereignty… which is essential if we New Zealanders are to maintain of Democratic society in which we choose how our country will be governed… not a committee of Evil Foreign Dictators.
Friends, I know you appreciate how important this election is. You desire to make your votes count. So do I. I will not waiver from calling you all out should you decide to vote for Ardern’s collaborators Act, National, NZ First! There are Freedom Heroes who need our support!
Another advance over Woke-Fascism on Saturday afternoon. All Blacks vs Wallabies. I don’t mean the result, thrilling and all as that was; I mean the anti-Woke fact of the match itself, and the spectacle. As soon as the final whistle blew, the Wallabies, who had come so close to the victory they fought for so fiercely and skilfully, only to be denied it by Ritchie Mo’Unga at the last minute, far from rushing off for counselling in some safe space, all but made love to their conquerors. No snowflakery, no hurt feelings, just good old-fashioned sportsmanship on steroids, and applause for the great for being great.
It was thus doubly edifying and gratifying to read this, from New Conservative, over the weekend also:
New Zealand needs good men. Our long term problem of fatherlessness is not helped by telling men and boys that their masculinity is toxic and unwelcome. New Conservative will be a voice for men and the value of masculinity.
Under the heading, Resisting Gender Ideology, the party stated:
All the parties currently in parliament voted unanimously for gender ‘self-identification’ – allowing people to change the gender on their birth certificate on a whim.
Men compete in women’s sports, midwives must refer to mothers as ‘birthing people’, men and boys can use girls’ toilets and changing rooms, and men are placed in women’s prisons. Teachers are forced to use ‘non-gendered’ language, and one has recently been deregistered for refusing to use male pronouns and names for a teenage girl. The madness will not stop until we put an end to it.
New Conservative affirms the biological reality that there are only two genders, and opposes the lie that a person can be ‘born in the wrong body’, or can ‘change their gender’. The establishment parties have taken a stand for confusion and the erasing of women – a party vote for New Conservative is the only option to fight back against this insanity.
Under the heading Respecting Women, the party says:
New Conservative will ensure that the definition of a woman is legally restricted to those born biologically female.
New Conservative will require all government organisations to use correct biological terms like “mother” instead of offensive neologisms like “birthing person”.
AMEN to that! (And not APERSON!)
You know the table has been set for this type of insanity – evil, in fact – when you hear the quacking sounds that Woke-Fascist women in particular substitute for human speech; you know, women who can’t or won’t define “woman.”
George Orwell understood the connection between vocal atrocity and other atrocities. I quote from 1984:
The next moment a hideous, grinding speech, as of some monstrous machine running without oil, burst from the big telescreen at the end of the room. It was a noise that set one’s teeth on edge and bristled the hair at the back of one’s neck. The Hate had started.
In its second minute the Hate rose to a frenzy. People were leaping up and down in their places and shouting at the tops of their voices in an effort to drown the maddening bleating voice that came from the screen. … The horrible thing about the Two Minutes Hate was not that one was obliged to act a part, but, on the contrary, that it was impossible to avoid joining in. Within thirty seconds any pretence was always unnecessary. A hideous ecstasy of fear and vindictiveness, a desire to kill, to torture, to smash faces in with a sledge-hammer, seemed to flow through the whole group of people like an electric current, turning one even against one’s will into a grimacing, screaming lunatic.
Hideous, grinding speech? Maddening bleating voices? Albert Park, recently, perhaps, or this:
Ladies and gentlemen, I submit that when that sort of noise is accepted as speech, and elected Congresswoman or Prime Minister, you’re in a society that will accept anything, believe anything and do anything on orders from Big Sister. Or Big Brother.
You can take it to the bank, if your bank hasn’t cancelled you, that the Wuhan lockdowns were a dress rehearsal for climate hysteria lockdowns. And look how compliant so many sheeple were to those. To being ordered by Big Sister not to talk to their neighbours, but dob them in. A society that rolls over so readily is a society that sounds like Occasional Cortex, Jacinda Jackboot and Adolf Gutters. A monstrous machine running without oil. Oil has been banned, don’t you know?!
And now, the announcement by Chrissie Hipkiss that the evil Blackrock, the global hub of corporate Woke-Fascism will be financing our gallop towards tyranny for the sake of the Zero Carbon hysteria. It’s beyond sickening. Vote the entire Uniparty out! Hipkiss, Christina Luxon,, Snake “no one cares about you mate” Seymour, Kohimarama, Shawshank … the whole rotten, stinking evil bunch of Globalists … OUT!!
All the more then was this, from New Conservative, edifying and gratifying:
There is no climate emergency. New Conservative will end all climate focused taxes, subsidies, and regulations. Laws like the Zero Carbon Act and Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) impose significant costs on everyday New Zealanders while not improving environmental outcomes.
I’m very tempted now. Not there yet, especially since the shockingly tempting Liz Gunn’s in the mix. And there’s the possibility, with Kirsten Murfitt on the New Zealand First ticket, a freedom-lover should vote for that party, not because of Winston, but in spite of him. Whichever way I am eventually tempted decisively to vote, I shall be faithful to Oscar’s dictum: the only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it.
Oh, but then, I must apologise. I apologise, ladies and gentlemen, for inflicting Occasional Cortex, Jacinda Jackboot and Adolf Gutters upon you. Banish them from your minds. Have a drink! Make it a toast to the new World Cup All Black Squad!
King Charles III. Coronated Last night (NZ Time) 6-5-23
As his coronation approached the question of remaining in the Commonwealth inevitably bubbled to the surface. The screen shot above shows that Polls have been running in Canada to this very question.
It has always been the ambition of Cold War Communism to overthrow ‘British imperialism’ and set up their own quazi-‘Imperialism’ of Global Socialism, and they have set about achieving these objectives via ‘a long march’ infiltrating all tiers of Social institutions esp Education, and also by the strategy of ‘Divide and Conquer’… agitation for rebellion amongst ‘Indigenous populations’…. creating Social unrest, and Racial strife all designed to Weaken and Destroy British based democracies like New Zealand.
It has always been a Marxist wet dream to see the Commonwealth fragment.
This being so, whenever the question of New Zealand leaving the Commonwealth has come up, it has always been a thorny issue for me as a Libertarian.
I do believe it is the natural order of progression for a Nation to become fully independent… a Republic, yet the question must be asked… What sort of Republic would be established?
If the answer is to be an Apartheid Socialist Republic (which is what the Leftist radicals want) then as far as I’ve been concerned New Zealand fares much better to remain under the Civilised wing of Great Britain, and her Rule of Law, and The system of Equal Rights! And also maintaining our Commonwealth fraternity of shared enlightenment values.
This is what Queen Elizabeth represented. She was an anchor that slowed down the disintegration of values and as such there was great merit in remaining in her Commonwealth.
She lived long, and people were free under her rule, to the degree that she did not impose her personal beliefs via the Law as was normal in previous ages. She governed as an exemplar of Character and personal virtue.
She has gone now, and King Charles is about to be Coronated with Diadem, holding the Orb, and Scepter… mystical relics that imbues Sovereignty and Awe!
Or at least that is how it’s all supposed to work!
Charles has had plenty of time to contemplate his succession, and he more than anyone appreciates the challenge of being/ becoming a rightful ‘King’ in the hearts and minds of myriads of people… The majority of whom are Moderns… educated, democratic… steeped in enlightenment values, and who put little weight on the mystical powers of the Baubles of office.
The Divine right of Kings’ is an obsolete doctrine.
Many Britain’s simply see the Monarchy as a Tourist attraction.
Then you have the Noisy minority of Woke Marxist extremists in every corner of the Commonwealth who want to abolish the monarchy and set up a Communist New World Order!
These people are fundamentally opposed to everything British. They despise The values of the Commonwealth, They are a dangerous and destructive element… who in their right mind would listen to these lunatics?
At birth Princess Elisabeth was not directly in line for the Throne, yet she was fated to be Queen. She was by the time of her Coronation popular with the people, particularly for her conduct during WW2 when she and her parents shared the lot of Londoners during the Bliz. Upon turning 18 voluntered to aid the War effort becoming a Mechanic in the Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS), the women’s branch of the British Army.
Read more here.
As already mentioned, with his mothers enduring reign, Charles has had plenty of time to seriously contemplate how he is going to perpetuate popular support for the Monarchy into the New era yet I think he has made a monumental blunder in thinking the future will be Woke.
He has positioned himself not only as a member of the Cult of Climate Alarmism, he has also endorsed Claus schwab’s ‘Great Reset’.
Is this because *His masters in the Illuminati* have commanded him to steer the British empire in this direction?
Prince Charles and Evelyn de Rothschild.
It is a dangerous path to take!
Not only is it a betrayal of the independence of the British Isles, In taking this course he is selling out the chief reason why it was a reasonable idea for Nations like New Zealand to remian in the Commonwealth!
If The King has gone Woke… then we are better of cutting ties and setting up our own Republic that retains our Sovereignty separate from Schwabs Globalist NWO.
This means we must defend Free Speech at all costs so that we can rally our people to fighting the Communist Globalists embedded in our institutions and establish a truely Free Constitutional republic.
I believe Charles has made a huge blunder.
Western civilisation hangs in the balance, yet I believe the true weight still is in favour of Commonsense, National sovereignty, and Christian/enlightenment values.
We all know what a monumental marketing blunder it was for Budweiser Beer to go woke! Totally alienating their Core Customer base. The strategy was to ‘modernize’ their brand to make it more appealing to the next generation…. It was an Epic failure!
Charles is the Bud-light of Kings, basing his future upon bad marketing advice. If the Monarchy no longer stands for the Classical British Ideals that underpinned the Free West then it no longer serves it’s purpose as a bulwark against barbarous encroachments.
Wrong Bet Charlie!
Go Woke… Go Broke!
He is primed to sell out the British Isles and Commonwealth to Claus Schwarbs Great Reset, and the WEF New World Order.
The Coronation itself will be a spectacle!
Not since Edmund Hillary conquered Everest has the Empire witnessed such Pomp!
So under King Charles will the monarchy become like Tits on a Bull?
Serving no useful purpose whatsoever?
Worse still will be be a bumbling fool and lead the Empire into Socialist Global slavery?
It sure looks that way.
The Big problem New Zealand has is that one of Comrade Jacinda Ardern’s most treasonous actions was to alienate New Zealand from the ANZUS alliance, preferring to snuggle up the the Chinese Dragon.
In fact the previous National Party Government…. Blinded by truck loads of Yuan had already moved us in this same direction… putting us more and more into economic dependence with this Demonic Power.
This is frightening stuff!
Despite my fears about Charles, with all the subversive voices echoing around the globe demanding apologies for colonization, and polls that claim nations don’t want Charles as their monarch, I do believe maintaining the Commonwealth is in New Zealand’s best interests as we are militarily weak, thus our only protection from being swallowed up by the likes of China is in having close mutual bonds with more powerful allies of which Great Britain and fellow Commonwealth countries like Australia are vital.
This is much to be preferred than becoming a Vassal of The Chinese Communist Party.
With regard to the up and coming referendum on the right to assisted death for the terminally ill, and to politics in general, a fundamental question asked by Libertarians is Who owns your life?
Answer: You do! Not society.
Upon that basis I believe a Yes vote for the right to assisted dying for the terminally ill is the moral vote because it is the only consistent position with the principle that (politically speaking) *you own yourself*.
Otherwise you become the slave/ property of society.
The above statement is clear cut, yet not without controversy.
The ‘No’ voters think this reform erodes the sanctity of Human life. So argues the New Conservative party.
I say it does the very opposite thing.
It removes power from the State and gives it back to individuals to make their own choices.
I myself am both a Libertarian, and a Christian, yet many Christians will not be able to reconcile my ‘Yes vote’ with how they interpret ‘Christian values’, and in fact many people… both believers and infidels can’t imagine how Christianity and Libertarianism can be coherently united and consistent in application.
More on these nuances later, first of all I want to talk about the curious mental gymnastics I am forced to engage in this election whereby my votes on both referendums will be in conflict with the expressed policies of the political party I have decided to support. New Conservatives.
I forgive people for this default starting assumption.
Hopefully those of you who find my decisions incredulous will take the trouble to read this post whereby I will do my best to extricate myself from being written off as a nutbar.
I know that my choices will win few friends, and will more likely annoy any I already have because splitting my votes will tend to draw the ire and consternation of *all camps*.
Nonetheless this is the course I am choosing to navigate.
We here in New Zealand live in chaotic times politically speaking, and the two referenda being run in unison with the national elections are two highly polarising subjects… which is why they have become referenda as neither of the two large parties have the Nads to legislate these reforms, or run with them as election policies.
The assisted dying referendum for the terminally ill has come about because of a bill presented to parliament by Act Leader David Seymour.
I will be supporting Seymour’s reform, yet I won’t be giving Act my party vote.
Even though Act have never been a great party, deciding not to vote Act this election was not an easy decision to make, as what other party even remotely represents my essential values?
On several key matters of personal freedom David Seymour had stood head and shoulders above the rest of parliament in how he conducted himself this election cycle, with respect to the issues of free Speech, and his opposition to the shameful way the new Firearms prohibitions were enacted.
In the light of these noble actions I was definitely leaning towards giving Act my vote and encouraging others to do the same, yet as time progressed, Seymour’s virtues became overshadowed by other unconscionable actions he would proceed to commit which have undermined my support.
With regards to the new abortion Legislation he not only supported late term abortions but also failed to vote for a proposed amendment that would have defended the rights of babies born alive after botched Abortions to receive medical aid rather than being neglected to die.
The whole basis of the pro-abortion arguments are that a woman is sovereign over her own body and the government has no authority to dictate what she does within her own body… yet once a baby has in fact been born… is *outside* the woman’s body, then they ought to have the full rights of an independent human being!
I consider these failings by David Seymour to be morally reprehensible.
And how disgusting that such laws were passed under a parliament led by a Woke PM who claims she entered politics ‘For the Children’!!!!
Seymour is fully complicit in this foul business.
I was also disgusted with the way he treated some of his most loyal candidates with regards to this elections Act party list, and I have always disliked what I see as a general lack of spine on some of the most important social issues facing our Nation such as ending the Race based seats in parliament, and his support for the UN Global compact on migration.
These are not attributes of a leader I can endorse.
In the not too distant past voting for me was a far less convoluted enterprise.
During the first decade of this new Millennium voting was relatively easy because New Zealand had a vibrant Libertarian Party for whom I could cast my vote with confidence, and for many elections in the second decade, I stood as a Libertarian Independent, and so obviously I at least knew which candidate I would support.. yet the question of where to place my party vote has never been an easy decision since the Libertarianz Party disbanded.
It is a matter of political folklore that the Act Party are a ‘Libertarian party’, yet this is to the largest extent a myth.
A myth that is mostly to the detriment of Libertarianism.
Politics in New Zealand truly is a confounding mess and almost madness to try and untangle… which causes many not to bother trying.
Act may have been founded with the aid of some Libertarian minded people, yet there were also many Ex Labour Party Neo-liberal Bigwigs like Roger Douglas and Richard Prebble, and so instead of advocating any Libertarian social reforms, Act quickly became a Crony Capitalist/’National Socialist party’ that supported some Free market Economics, yet maintained Welfare State socialism with regards to virtually everything else.
Take a look at the picture (above) that exposes how far the National party have drifted from their original charter!
If only they had remained true to their original aspirations upon which they were founded!
Act became the most Right Wing party of New Zealand.. to the right of National.. a lobby to bludgeon Left wing heavy Taxation Anti-Business ambitions of Labor and their more radical minions yet despite lofty rhetoric Act absolutely failed to stand for any reforms on individual liberty.
This has remained the case throughout their history perhaps with the one exception during the party leadership by the Great New Zealander Don Brash.
It was under Brash that Act came anywhere near a forthright stand on any law reform that was a matter of personal freedom, when Brash came out on TV in favour of ending cannabis prohibition.
His party associates like John Banks nearly had a heart attack!
Brash stint with Act was short, and any mention of Cannabis law reform left when he did.
Act has always and only played lip service to being the party of small government and personal freedom.
This is because apart from Brash the Party has been run by a bunch of Ball-less wonders.
The most disappointing for me was Jamie Whyte… because of all of them he knew better.
Most of them put money matters above personal liberty and social justice.
Act are not Nazis, yet their party is part way down a continuum at the end of which is full blown fascism.
Labour are not Communists, yet their party is well down the continuum at the end of which stands full blown Communism. Today under Ardern their policies and loyalties lie not with the interests of New Zealanders but with UN Socialist Globalism.
By labeling Act as ‘Libertarian’ the leftist media managed to confound Libertarianism with being Far right.
This is disgraceful slander.
Libertarianism is fundamentally different to every other political ideology.
Act’s alignment with *Fascism* rather than true capitalism and Freedom, is why the True Libertarians who initially helped found Act, quickly realised what was afoot and jumped ship.
They formed their own genuine Libertarian party, and so Act became just another Party against whom the Libertarianz party had to cross swords.
For more than a decade the Libertarianz Party fought valiantly for Individual liberty and rights against ever expanding Government encroachment, yet sadly after years of courageous activism they were forced to throw in the towel from lack of traction and financial support.
MMp’s 5% mark to get an MP into parliament is in my opinion far too high, and represents a barrier to breaking the stranglehold the two major parties enjoy.
The Political playing field is also heavily tilted in favour of maintaining the status quo, and New Zealanders themselves are heavily conditioned to their chains.
The Libertarianz party could not sustain itself against the overwhelming odds.
Freedom lovers failed to rally under their noble banner from a delusion of ‘wasting their votes’.
Well… I ask… where did casting your votes for other parties get our Nation?
Because New Zealanders did not heed the Libertarians on their Soap boxes, and rally behind them is why our nation now experiences the dawning of an era of Tyranny!
I implore Freedom lovers to not make the same mistake!
Stop voting for the very parties that have abandoned our values and taken our nation towards complete enslavement!
The demise of the Libertarianz Party spelled the end of New Zealanders clear choice between Freedom and various levels of Tyranny.
Between Justice and various levels of oppression.
Between fairness in economics vs heavy Political obstacles.
Libertarian minded New Zealanders were cast adrift… forced to swim about in a stinking cesspool, looking for the best place to put their democratic votes.
The political climate and darkened mentality of our times have made this a very dirty business.
Most of the wares on offer by todays mongers are of dubious quality.
The Libertarian pines over his ale, looking out upon a scene of chaos, confusion, and mayhem.
Is there any hope to be found?
The question of which political parties (if any) should the Libertarian now give their vote is a highly troublesome dilemma, as at a glance there appear only shades of grey tending towards complete blackness.
It is very difficult to determine whether *any* of the parties standing ought to be supported.
The closest way to describe what voting now entails for a Kiwi Libertarian is to liken the decision making process to solving a bunch of ‘Trolley Problems’ that will be familiar to those who have to some degree studied moral philosophy.
‘The trolley problems’ are designed to highlight the many complexities involved in dealing with moral dilemmas in which *means and ends* are far from ideal.
Solution tends towards making pragmatic determinations hoping for the best outcomes attainable via the least repugnant means… for the overall sake of committing the lesser Evil.
The trouble is the lesser evil is still evil.
Wikipedia discussion on Trolley problems can be found here
There is no space here or sense in attempting to fully articulate the conundrums involved. It must suffice to say this is an abhorrent ‘game’ for any Idealist to be forced to play, and being independent thinkers, the once united Libertarians have now fragmented… going their own ways… as each individual makes their own determinations as to how to solve the set of trolley problems presented to them at election time. This election is particularly significant as we also must vote on the two referenda.
In truth the most moral of men and woman, and the greatest leaders of history have had to face frightful moral dilemmas, and most of them have had to carry the weight of harsh criticism for the decisions they made from lesser mortals who would have been stupefied and paralyzed had they themselves been faced with the same crisis.
To shrink from tuff calls is symptomatic of Moral weakness.
One day we all will stand before our Maker and give account of ourselves, and it is He who shall determine the virtue of those who made tuff calls.
Two examples might be the decision to use the Atom bomb on Japan in 1945, another might be Churchill’s decision to ally with Stalin for the sake of defeating Hitler.
Both of these involve weighty moral dilemmas that provoke strong criticism to this day.
Given today’s circumstances I know a few Ex Libertarianz party members who today throw up their hands in disgust… and refuse to vote… the irony is that not voting… *is their vote*… to do nothing.
In the perspective of the Trolley problems not voting is the equivalent of never choosing to throw the lever… not intervening at all to try and mitigate any crisis that is unfolding, and allowing things to take their course… no matter how horrendous the result of their inaction might be, or how things could have turned out had they been brave enough to reach for the switch.
Most of us have heard the saying “Evil prevails when good men do nothing”.
For me *to automatically* determine to ‘do nothing’ is no escape from moral culpability in what ensues, it is in fact an abdication of moral duty… a most heinous moral failing… maybe the worst of them all!
Bible Theologians would call this ‘The sin of Omission’… and one example of this in the Bible is told by Jesus when asked about the moral duty to ‘love thy neighbour as thyself’.
He spoke of the predicament of the man who was beaten and robbed, yet the ‘Religious Jew’ walked past him without giving him any aid. It was only when the Good Samaritan came along that the man received care.
By doing nothing The Religious Jew was deemed to be wicked, and so *automatic inaction* cannot be the moral position…if there exists at all any plausible means of steering things towards a more desirable outcome without committing unconscionable evils in the process. ‘Not Voting’ cannot absolve a person from the resulting evils his inaction inevitably entails.
It’s like walking past our sick and dying country on the other side of the road as if it’s not your problem, rather than inconveniencing yourself and getting your hands dirty.
The reality is that though no registered political Party standing in October 17 is fundamentally a Libertarian party, there is still a broad range of parties standing and the fact is it still makes a massive difference which ones manage to get their hands on the levers of Power.
Lives are at stake!
Freedom is at stake!
Quality of life is at stake!
Our Children’s futures are at stake!
New Conservative candidate for Hamilton West Rudy du Plooy.
When I survey the Political landscape, despite the absence of a Libertarian party, judged by their policies and election campaigns certain parties do stand out as vastly superior to either National or Labour.
Some are worse, such as the Greens, and The Maori Party.
Some are no better such as NZ First, Top.
Many ex Libertarianz will be voting for Act, yet personally speaking of the two parties that most clearly articulate principles, and values that I considered honorable, it is the New Conservatives who come out on top.
Their forthright defense of Free speech.
Their rejection of 1080.
Repeal all the new and hastily enacted Firearms prohibitions created in the wake of the Christchurch terrorist attack.
Their defense of National sovereignty in opposition to UN Globalist slavery.
Their rejection of Ardern’s Covid 19 ‘elimination strategy, Lockdowns, and their absolute rejection of compulsory vaccinations.
No to carbon taxes, first 20k of income tax free.
Their rejection of ‘Transgender indoctrination’ in schools against parents wishes.
Their rejection of the UN Global compact on migration, etc all these clearly stated policies mean New Conservatives trump the Act Party by a country mile, and that is why I will be giving them my party vote, and having had a coffee with their Hamilton West candidate Rudy du Plooy last week I will also be giving him my candidate vote.
It is fitting that here I discuss one of NC’s most important policies, and examples of their party’s integrity and courage and that is their forthright call for the end of Treaty separatism and the race based seats in parliament.
Rudy is an immigrant from South Africa and so he has experienced the evils of Apartheid and appreciates just how violent and unjust Racist politics and bigotry can become.
That is why his party is calling for racial equality before the law.
The Treatment of White South Africans currently going on over there is appalling! Yet not a peep is raised about it by our Woke PM Ardern… because ultimately socialists like her support the oppression of White people.
Many of her own policies are heavily prejudiced against Pakeha New Zealanders, and for all her talk about humanitarian migration, she remains silent in opening New Zealand’s doors to help more oppressed white South Africans… because they are white.
This too despite the fact that White South Africans integrate well into our society as they share common traditional values… yet these are the very values socialists like her are determined to destroy.
Statistically speaking Ardern wants Less white people in New Zealand, and she can turn a blind eye to the fate of white farmers there under the contemptible socialist bromide that they are paying the dues of the white race for the past apartheid regime.
By Socialist math two wrongs do make a right.
Hence Ardern has little conscience about supporting Racist legislations under the pretense of ‘De-colonising’ New Zealand.
In New Plymouth which is a hot bed of Radical Maori separatist activism the NC candidate Murry Chong has heroically weathered a Tempest of outrage for his forthright stand against attempts to further entrench fraudulent Waitangi Apartheid and Treaty partnership doctrines and institutions there. He has suffered the most skewed press that mischaracterised his defense of Racial equality as ‘Opposition to Maori Representation’… which is a complete lie.
What he and his fellow New Conservatives oppose is the ongoing creation of special seats of power whereby Iwi can extort the rest of the people perpetually… as if they have more rights than everyone else.
They seek to rid our nation of such corrupt politics, and when the Maori seats and the rest of the apartheid institutions are abolished, He understands that Maori rights will still be protected by the Law in common with everyone else. Maori will still be able to stand of Parliament and Council, only to do so they will have to campaign before the entire community which will cut off the truly *racist radicals* for ever attaining office because their nasty bigoted views and ambitions will never fly with the whole of the people… and that is how a democracy is supposed to function!
The Racist radicals know that should apartheid politics be brought to an end… so too will their ability to extort unearned and undeserved wealth and privilege be broken.
So many New Zealanders have completely forgotten the most important fundamentals of justice and good government!
The New Conservatives have candidates in every electorate including the Maori seats.
Personally I don’t think it was the right thing to stand in those electorates, yet having said that I appreciate the Nads it takes to do so.
Their candidates in the Maori electorates will face heavy angst from many Maori who have been brainwashed into thinking their party policy to abolish the race based electoral system is a demonstration of anti-Maori bigotry. They will face threats. Yet should they maintain their composure and speak truth with eloquence they will be able to present their case with love.
Truth and principle, and Righteousness are on their side!
You know The New Conservatives are the party that threaten Left wing Radical socialism as no other party is enduring the hate and violence as they are…
I salute all NC candidates for their bravery… The one-eyed mainstream media takes no more pleasure than to pillory the small parties and their candidates who bravely challenge the ‘norms’ of the status quo.
Act’s David Seymour in private professes that the race based system is corrupt and ruining our country yet does not have the balls to say so in public at election time.
That is cowardly. That is unprincipled scheming, and demonstrates the sort of Game playing politician he really is.
How is he any different for the scoundrel Winston Peters who betrayed his supporters last election with regards to making the abolishment of the race-based seats a bottom line for coalition talks?
Sadly… when you dig deep down… despite many good things David has done… he and Winston are not as different as he likes to think.
He too is a game player.
The Leftist radicals of Labour, the Greens, and the Maori Party demonstrate their absolute disregard for fair elections in that they have implemented a strategy of destroying New Conservative election bill boards all about the country… despite their own parties getting far more Taxpayer loot to fund their own campaigns!
Like I said earlier about the struggles of the Libertarianz Party before them… New Zealand elections are far from fair… far for being fought on a level playing field, and so The New Conservatives face an uphill battle against dirty political tactics at every step.
I urge every New Zealander who is alarmed at our headlong plunge into tyranny under Jacinda Ardern to get behind the brave and principled New Conservative party!
If 5% of us do… they will be in parliament and possibly even be included in a coalition government, most likely with National and Act.
This would position them well to lever National into making concessions in alignment with our Values and principles… away from the direction Ardern has carried us.
These are good people who hold to the traditional values that made New Zealand a great and prosperous place to live.
They care about all New Zealanders.
I attended a public meeting a few months back in Te Awamutu where I heard several candidates speak, including the party’s passionate and compassionate deputy, Elliot Ikilei.
He spoke very well, and I was particularly impressed with his insights into the many social conditions that are common for troubled youth that play a large role in such important issues in Maori criminality.
He articulated that from his experience working in this field that all the separatist rhetoric about Maori crime statistics as being evidence of systemic oppression of Maori from colonisation are absolutely false!
Instead he argued that the main driver of Maori criminality was broken homes and a lack of a Father in the house, and thus all the ‘positive discrimination’ going on in the name of ‘closing the gaps’ between Maori and the rest of the country absolutely miss the fundamental issues.
He described how the institution of the Domestic Purposes benefit *was devastating for Maori* because that was corrosive to maintaining families, promoted single parent-ism, and it’s institution correlates perfectly with the exponential growth of Maori dependence on welfare and Broken homes.
Thus Elliot understands that socialism is a dangerous trap!
I myself also know Maori must take ownership of their own violence and substance abuse… these are not evils that can be justly blamed on their Pakeha neighbours but represent the ugly truth of a serious lack of wholesome values that are requisite in having happy homes and personal prosperity in a free and modern society.
Maori need to cut with the shameful blame, and take more ownership of their own mess!
I like the New Conservative party very much.
They have their hearts in the right place.
They offer real and much needed alternatives.
None of them appear to me to be in politics for powers sake, yet they are not perfect.
They have many policies and values I myself hold dear, yet I know they are not a consistent Libertarian party.
They are Democrats… with all the weakness that entails.’
This being so I see great opportunity for improvement, and given the chance I would like to engage in healthy dialogue to see if they are open to reasonable challenge on some of their policies which I do not endorse.
I have already mentioned that I will be voting yes for the right to assisted dying.
This is at variance with the New Conservatives.
Maybe sometime soon I will write a blogpost explaining in more detail why I believe they are wrong to oppose this legal reform, yet because this current post is already insanely long, I want to finish by discussing the New Conservative policy of Citizens Binding Referenda and my intention to vote ‘yes’ for Cannabis law reform in the forthcoming referenda which is again against the expressed policy of the New Conservatives.
At the Te Awamutu meeting my friend and fellow Libertarian Robin Thomsen and I introduced ourselves to Elliot and engaged in a short conversation.
Elliot was happy to talk and spoke candidly.
After a few other subjects I broached the topic of the Cannabis Referendum and asked what his party would do should they succeed in getting into parliament, yet also the people of New Zealand vote for Cannabis legalisation?
He said his party would honor that result despite it being contrary to their own policy and hopes.
That answer was consistent with their policy of citizens binding referenda and demonstrates integrity to that political school of thought despite the result going against their own opinions as to what is best for the country.
As far as ending the war on cannabis being ‘bad’ for New Zealand I emphatically reject that position.
This is a topic I have involved myself for many years having experienced first hand the injustice of criminalising cannabis users, and understand the manifold other detrimental effects these bad laws have on our society. I have been an activist for reform for over 30 years, and in fact it was activism to ‘Free the weed’ that was my first foray into politics trying to fix a broke system.
I would jump from hedge to hedge… covertly distributing ‘NORML’ Pamphlets in Tauranga letterboxes in the dead of night.
I knew the difference between dishonesty and violence, from peacefully enjoying a doobie with friends in my own home… I knew I was being oppressed and that the Law needed to be changed.
I will post links to other Blogposts on this subject below.
The point I wish to finish on, and one I hope the New Conservatives are open to reconsider is the weird way in which they promote binding Citizens referenda in the face of knowing it is just as likely for the majority of people to vote for laws they believe to be *Bad* as it is for good… and I am using the Cannabis referenda as an example.
Is it not apparent to them that *Mob Rule* is no guarantee of Good law or justice?
I see their policy on binding referenda as their Achilles heel.
It’s a policy that actually undermines the *Real foundations of Just Law* which are the Objective principles of Justice such as personal sovereignty, and equality before the Law… and that just government has strictly limited authority over the lives of citizens, the impartial enforcement of legally binding contracts, and limited powers over only such matters pertaining to the defense of rights.
The terms and condition upon which Government is founded, and limits of it’s powers ought to be embodied in a constitution with an iron clad bill of rights upon which democratically elected Parliaments have no authority to encroach.
This is a million miles away from having a system of Mob rule… open ended social arbitrary Law whereby the greatest mob get their way.
Under such a system there is no protection for Individuals or minorities, and the Masses are notorious for being easily duped and manipulated by Charismatic demagogues.
I have much to say on these matters, and it would be my pleasure to open a dialogue with the New Conservatives about these vital political truths.
Now remember the moral dilemmas of the Trolley problems and the uncomfortable reality of having to make choices under circumstances less than ideal, via means that are less than ideal, and which also probably will result… no matter what decision is made in ends that are less than ideal?
My decision to vote ‘Yes’ on the Act Party’s Right to assisted death for the terminally ill referendum, and ‘Yes’ on the Green Party’s Cannabis Law reform Referendum, and also ‘yes’ for the New Conservative party this election are each individual decisions I have arrived at as being the most moral, and just choices available to voters this election.
I am being compelled to make compromises, and there is always an element of risk, yet ultimately from my best evaluations all these choices are the most consistent with my Christian Libertarian values and ideals.
Such is the human condition and predicament.
I don’t pretend my choices are not open to critisism… such is the nature of moral dilemma.
I hope this blogpost is instrumental in winning support for the New Conservatives from Liberty lovers, Free thinkers, and all who are concerned about the Free fall of our country into socialist tyranny.
I believe they will reach 5% if enough of us resolve to give them our support.
They deserve it.
Our Country desperately needs to steer a new course to get back to the freedom and Values we enjoyed not too many years ago before the likes of Ardern came to power.
She is turning our Nation into a Police State!
I have posted the two ‘Amazing Polly’ videos that I have watched and she is as sharp as a knife!
We can be sure that at some point in the future she will be targeted for de-platforming and internet ghosting so I have included some of the alternative sites where she has set up in preparation for this inevitable censorship she will face.
Polly’s video ‘Censoring Opposition to Censorship’ is under attack by SJWs… eg… here.
And the Alt-Left are psychopathic… they are Trolling the Internet trying to get any critics of their ideology and Political agenda Banned/ De-platformed, etc.
On that note I will also add the fact that I have set myself up on MeWe here in anticipation of the high probability that I will probably loose my page on facebook, due to Political prejudices and Censorship, and that this Blog may also get blacklisted.

Globalist politicians are ERASING testimony and holding semi-secret hearings. They are holding sham hearings where they don’t let people speak and the erase testimony that contradicts their objectives.
This is a dystopia. MORE…

One very important point to appreciate in the video above that I want to discuss here is how in a Canadian Free Speech hearing, was how a hand picked Muslim ‘hate speech law proponent’ was allowed to present his very dishonest opinions about Alexandre Bissonnette who shot six members of a Quebec City mosque in 2017, and The Christchurch Anti-Muslim terrorist Brenton Tarrant saying these killers were ‘Pro-Conservative’.
This slant was correctly rebutted by Canadian Conservative party MP Michael Cooper who labeled this testimony Slanderous and defamatory … lacking in credibility… and then went on to prove that Tarrant was opposed conservatism by quoting from Tarrants own Manifesto (that is conveniently banned in New Zealand under threats of Jail) in which Tarrent expressly states that he rejects conservatism and that the closest Political system to which he subscribes is *Communist China!*
This clearly marks Tarrant *as a LEFTIST*
And the very fact that there is a murderously dangerous anti-muslim Alt-Left is a fact that the left are desperate to keep from the Public mind.
The left seeks to deceive the public into thinking that only the so-called ‘Alt right’ are ‘islamiphobic’ and so by default any so-called ‘anti-Muslim activities’ *can all be blamed on Alt right extremism*… this is why they lump conservatives with Nazis.
Yet the truth is The Leftist Atheist Communist China is Ruthlessly oppressing Muslims in China… It may indeed be the most anti-muslim government on Earth!
Yet we dont hear so much of a peep out of Our Lefty Government who will Bag the US and Trump all day long, yet who are terrified stupid of offending Beijing and also do not wish to advertise the fact the Left wing has its share of vicious Islamiphobia of the sort Lauded by The Christchurch Terrorist.
Lets not forget that in 2008 Ardern was elected President of the International Union of Socialist Youth.
Leftists and the UN are also notorious Anti-Israel Anti-Semites.
What is also absolutely abhorrent about this Canadian Hearing is how MP Michael Coopers testimony and use of Tarrants manifesto was met with outrage and has been sort to be deleted from Public record!
*Censoring the truth… Doctoring the Public record… and in effect Re-writing history to suit their own desires!*
This stuff is why Free speech Advocates are saying we are now living in the Orwellian Universe of 1984.
And we New Zealanders can be sure this same suppression of the facts cover up, will define the trial of Brenton Tarrant, and that what we the public will get to see and hear will only be a narrative constructed to present Events the way the Government wants you to swallow as fact.
It will be propaganda… not the truth.
The Idea that banning Tarrant’s manifesto ‘The Great Replacement’ is somehow to prevent ‘copy cat’ crimes is totally bogus!
The real reason is because the Government wants to control *all information*… your thoughts… and as we have seen for this video the manifesto contains this terrorists political views that are very inconvenient and contradictory of the governments Narrative.
We are in the middle of an Information war… The battlefield is domination of the Public mind.
We live in such frightening times that just by talking about these matters and individuals, Thinkers and writers like myself could find ourselves being targeted and intimidated by the Police who will look for any pretext by which they can arrest us, prosecute us, put legal Gags on us, and shut down our Blogs and social media presence.
Just by daring to express our personal opinions and critisise what the government is doing we will be flagged as ‘Dangerous’… ‘Alt Right’… etc with all the Ugly connotations tat those terms carry… Racists… Islamiphobes… etc… and when the Authorities think of a person in such terms it is very easy to abuse them, violate their rights … without conscience… indeed to joke about it… and take pride in it… and thats precisely how the persecution of the Jews was carried on in Nazi Germany.
The German police thought of the Jews as Dangerous traitors and Subversives to the National weal… vermin who *deserved* to be oppressed by the State.
So who really are the haters???
In my view the Spirit of Official persecution is Satanic… and we see this oppressive anti- Freedom Spirit is now running rampant all across western civilisation.
What sort of world are we bequeathing to our children?
I will not remain silent and Complicit!
I will raise my voice in protest for their sake!
One of the greatest dangers to the conservation of Western culture that Southern and Molyneux want to come to New Zealand to warn us about are those that stem from allowing a large influx of migrants and Refugees…from a starkly different culture.
Migrants who have no intention of assimilating their host nations culture or values and fervently harbour anti-Western ideas… such as outlawing critics of their religion … and that accommodating these alien ideas will spell the end of the Religious liberty we have enjoyed …founded upon tolerance and equality.
This should not be a surprise to anyone… and obviously measures need to be in place to protect the degrading of our rights and Liberties.
The price of Liberty is Eternal Vigilance… Our Heritage of Liberty and tolerance needs to be rigorously defended!
Well… Sadly… We see that the Islamic community in New Zealand already has leadership that thinks nothing of lobbying government to prevent speakers coming here they perceive as being critics of Islam!
And we already have Liberal Politicians who have zero respect for conserving Western culture more than willing to accommodate them!
*And that* is the *Real problem*… because in any society there will always be Petty Groups… and even malevolent groups who desire Laws that circumvent the rights and liberties of others… the problem happens when they are able to move Legal/Political powers to enact their anti-liberty desires.
Does anyone appreciate the Irony of this situation?
The arguments of Southern and Molyneux are being validated before our very eyes!
Is it already too late?
Has the sun already begun to set on Freedom and religious toleration in New Zealand?
I think so!
It is proven that even ‘Moderate’… Cosmopolitan forms of Islam (if that is what the ‘New Zealand Federation of Islam’ claims to be) are organisations dedicated to destroying Western ideals about personal Freedom… and enjoying life in a free and open society… Co-existing in peace based upon Ironclad Rights and liberties.
They want their religion (Islam) to be shielded from critique.
“She’s just going to insult all of us”
The Islamic community voiced their opposition to the visit last month.
New Zealand Federation of Islam Associations president Hazim Arafeh said it had written letters to the Immigration Minister, Minister for Ethnic Communities and the Human Rights Commission asking for Lauren Southern to be denied entry.
“[She] abuses her right of freedom of speech. She’s just going to give a talk in which she’s just going to insult all of us,” Mr Arafeh said.
“I don’t think insulting Muslims comes under free speech, that’s an abuse of freedom of speech.
“I’m talking on behalf of 50,000 to 60,000 Muslims in New Zealand who are going to face a very hard time by all the comments she is going to make.”
And the Anti-Western Commy Mayor of Auckland Phil Goff tweeted….
We see Goff quick to capitalize on this opportunity for extreme left ‘Virtue signalling’ that was not to be missed… under the pretense that the planned Speaking tour was ‘Divisive’.
Notice how on one hand we get Western Liberals applauding when their politically appointed partisan Judges insist Christian Bakers must accommodate Customers who want ‘Gay Wedding Cakes’… yet also these same hypocritical Ideologues then suggest it is a Right to exercise conscience *not to allow Southern and Molyneux use of Public facilities paid for by all Ratepayers… irrespective of Race, religion, or cultural heritage!
We can be certain that the council has in the past happily allowed its Publicly owed venues for such Radical Racists as
This is clear discrimination by the state in both counts… and on both counts it displays an agenda to suppresses the Religious liberty of the Cultural conservatives for the sake of pandering to the Anti-religious liberty sentiments of various sectors of our society.
Stephan Molyneux is also everything the Lefty Liberal SJW Retards love to hate.
Hes a Man… (Patriarchal Privilege)
He’s White… (White privilege)
He’s a defender of Western Values.
He’s unapologetic for any of that!
Banned from Entering New Zealand!
For The record let it be known that I have been very outspoken about what I didn’t like about Trumps Anti-refugee Electioneering… and I have defended the humanitarian urgency with regard to the plight of the Syrian refugees… and so I am not a person who endorses all the sentiments of Lauren Southern and Stefan Molyneux… yet it has been waay too easy for a biased press to wheel out Prejudiced academics like the so-called ” Massey University far-right expert and vice chancellor Paul Spoonley …. saying some of what the pair say was considered hate speech and labeling them as ‘Far Right extremists’… when in reality Southern and Molyneux are very mainstream Western Conservatives… not Rightist radicals at all.
The last time I remember anything like this was when New Zealanders were denied opportunity to listen to the arguments of Holocaust denier and Historian David Irving… a Man who was later jailed for the crime of having an opinion contrary to The Politicians and academics of Europe.
Now This is no joke!
Not a triffilng matter… not a victory for Social progress… but a plunge into the abyss!
In England, an act of unworthy of any Civilized Free society an associate of Lauren Southern … Journalist Tommy Robinson… was marched straight to jail… without normal due process… because he desired to expose the legal Travesties going on in British courts by which Muslim rapists escape justice that would be meted out to any other demographic!
So on one hand people who balk against the Liberal’s PC agenda are criminalised and thrown in jail pronto while the system panders to *Real Criminals* in the misguided idea that Britain ought to accommodate the anti-western cultures of Non-citizens!
The Ultra Right parties are definitely on the rise in Europe… taking advantage of the chaos and disorder that has ensued because of Weak governments management of the Refugee Crisis, yet it is not *Ultra right* to protest against this Politically Correct travesty *but Conservatism*… yet because the principles and arguments that oppose all this Lefty Garbage may be broadly understood as ‘Libertarian’… this makes it easy for Lefty academics and politicians to label these ideas as ‘Far Right’… which is where these charlatans have always lumped Libertarians… as if they are Nazis!
And the Dopey shepple believe these lies.
Libertarians are as opposed to Rightist Fascism as they are opposed to Lefty Communism … and for the very same reasons… both forms of socialism… on the left and right … are all about totalitarianism… and both trample underfoot the rights and liberties of Individuals… Destroying lives… filling Prisons… and pounding anyone who will not comply into the ground.
And we have Bold speakers here in New Zealand … ‘Maori Holocaust deniers’ like Bruce Moon and John Ansell who dare to contradict the ‘Official History’ of the British colonization of New Zealand as being systematic oppression of The Maori people.
Unlike David Irving… Moon and Ansell have history on their side!
The revisionism is the 100% propaganda of the Lefty academics and radicals, yet tt is not a very long march from Banning Foreign speakers… to jailing our citizens who critisise our own governments views.
This is where all this is heading.
Had David Irving been allowed to come here and talk it is highly unlikely he would have persuaded anyone that the German Holocaust against the Jews did not happen!
And at the risk of a few nutballs swallowing a few delusions… the principle of free speech is far to precious to be surrendered!
Lefty Politicians Like Phil Goff’s Labour Party… and the Greens that are infested with Purple haired ‘Social Justice Warrior’ Lunatics… most of whom are confused about their own sexuality…harbor a deep repugnance for New Zealand’s Western Christian Heritage, and this being so we see a stark prejudice against Christian values, to the degree that we can be sure that They would not pander to any ‘Christian Lobby’ that would be silly enough to Demand people like Richard Dawkins or Neil deGrasse Tyson be denied visas ‘Because they insult Christianity’… etc.
The Hypocrisy of the left stinks to high heaven!
I believe that if there is any organised protest against this travesty preventing Southern and Molyneux for coming here and talking that all liberty loving Kiwi should endevour to be there… even if you do not endorse what they represent as this not simply about supporting what these individual want to say… Its a much BIGGER and FAR MORE IMPORTANT MATTER!
Its about telling our Government they have no right to shut down Dissenters who peacefully expound Ideas that are contrary to the governments Agenda!
We Kiwi have the right to invite such people… and to listen to what they have to say… and to make up our own minds about such things!
It is Dangerous to allow the government to control what we hear, Read, watch, etc!
This is Fundamental to living in a free society!
Any society that looses this is in grave peril… and will have jails filled with political prisoners… and I am not just talking about Hell holes like North Korea!
The Lefty Liberals about the Globe are fast eroding our rights and Freedom… fast pandering to intolerance… in the name of tolerance!
The Great Evil Anti-free speech Liberal doctrine is of course the the Deception of ‘Hate Speech’ by which any critisism of anything… any group… any idea… may be construed as being ‘Hate speech’… esp if such criticism goes against the Agenda of the ruling party.
And of course The Right to Free speech especially matters when people what to say *unpopular things*… because that when intolerant people and vested interests… who have no recourse to reasoned arguments… seek to shut them down by Legalised force.
If This travesty is allowed to pass without protest you can count New Zealand as being one of the most petty Nations on Earth!
A Lefty Liberal S#!t hole!
And next They will Ban Christian speakers who are opposed to Abortion… Or Whom have opposed Gay Marriage…. or Hippies who advocate the end of the war on Drugs!
Now though I am a Christian Libertarian, I have no problems with Peaceful Muslims immigrating here… and I have advocated we accept far more Muslim refugees from such Humanitarian Crisis as the Syrian war… yet these people can only come here under the strict condition that they will obey our Laws and respect our Rights and Liberties!
They have no legitimate right to start lobbying the government to pass Laws that infringe upon our legitimate freedoms… or to expect special treatment.
As long as they peacefully go about their own business their is no reason why they cannot carry on enjoying their own culture and beliefs, yet if there is an in-congruence between their culture and that of their hosts… if anyone must culturally change and assimilate… it is the Immigrant… and refuge… not the Citizens of the host country.
If this condition is unacceptable to them… they should leave.
Like Citizens… They may voice their disagreements… yet they certainly dont have the legitimate right to lobby Government to Ban speakers whom are critics of Islam… any more that I have the right to lobby Government to ban critics of Christianity!
If I dont like what some speakers are saying I can ignore them… or take the opportunity to present a rational argument as to why they are in error… or challenge them to Public debate… or if I feel the need I may organise *A Peaceful* and civilized demonstration rally… Yet The Idea that certain speakers may be prevented from holding their meetings because of threats of violence from intolerant groups is absolutely unforgivable!
It is the Governments Job to see to it that Law and order prevails against such thuggery… and that the right to free speech be upheld… against the barbarians who think violence is the way to suppress their critics… rather than civilised debate…
Failure of Government to see to it that Controversial speakers are well guarded… and that the events take place is to let the Mob Rule!
And again we see that it is *The Wacko* Lefties with their ‘Social Justice Warriors’… ‘Antifa’, etc who have no qualms about resorting to Violent protest… rioting… and vandalism.
These things are crimes… not protests… and the Criminals should be thrown in Jails… and be made to pay for any property damage they cause.
They are the most likely to send Death threats, etc
In no way are they like the principled protests of Martin Luther King and his civil Rights movement, and ought to placed in stark contrast to them.
Even when engaged in ‘civil disobedience’… They were Never violent… never destructive of property… never angry… but full of Love and high ideals… and they won!
In those days it was the Separatist Status Quo who wanted to shut them down and prevent King and co from speaking… and whom resorted to violence!
Never should the Dialogue on sensitive issues be allowed to be hijacked by Political vested interests or the Mob.
Now I am not suggesting that the Islamic Federation of New Zealand is ‘a hotbed of radical Islam’ hell bent on turning New Zealand into an Islamic Caliphate’!
I have seen some good things that have come from this organisation in the past… yet I absolutely condemn their demands to ban Critics of Islam from being allowed to come here and talk.
They have overstepped the mark…
I just dropped in to proffer an explanation of my absence from this blog for the past 18 months or so.
In a word, depression. I have been beset with mental health problems my entire adult life. I have at least four diagnosed DSM-5 disorders. Of these, depression is the worst. It is, quite literally, a life-threatening illness. Fortunately, amongst other things, my life is not mine to take. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death.
Things took a turn for the worse about 18 months ago. Amongst other things, the full implications of having recently been belatedly diagnosed with adult ADHD were sinking in, winter was coming, and my usual coping strategies of injudicious drug use and abnegation of personal responsibility were failing me. But what really got me in a tailspin was when the state started bankruptcy proceedings against me, for alleged failure to pay taxes. I saw my GP about my predicament and he had no hesitation in giving me a medical certificate for WINZ. The upshot is that, since last autumn, I’ve been on the sickness benefit. Yes, that’s right. I’m a ward of the welfare state. So you can see what condition my condition is in.
But that’s enough about me, I don’t want to make this post all about my personal woes. In time-honoured fashion, I want to make it about this country’s political woes. This post will be about the government’s role in providing mental health services and, in particular, it’s role in NZ’s high rates of depression and suicide.
Straightaway, let’s get one thing straight. The government doesn’t actually care. The present National government doesn’t even want to know. Why else would it re-brand what was formerly the sickness benefit as “job seeker support”? A sickness beneficiary already has a job, and they know it! Their job is to get well. Well enough to seek, find, and then hold down a permanent paid position. All of which is easier said than done for the chronically mentally ill. Some of whom should, and do, end up on the invalid’s benefit.
The government doesn’t actually care. Certainly, the neoliberal government we’ve had in this country since 1984 doesn’t give a damn. To begin with, take the fact that the suicide rate for New Zealand males aged 15-19 doubled in the course of three years from 16 per 100,000 in 1985 to 32 per 100,000 in 1988. While trustworthy statistics aren’t easy to find, it would appear that this alarming increase in NZ’s youth suicide rate has held up. I see no reason to dispute the claim that NZ now has the highest rate of teen suicide in the developed world.
Former Children’s Commissioner Ian Hassall makes a couple of especially pertinent points (notwithstanding his dubious analogy to climate change).
The critical fact is that New Zealand has the highest rate of youth suicide in the OECD. This excess of young people’s deaths in New Zealand when compared with other OECD countries must be a result of local factors.
The statistics show that whatever these factors were, they began to operate from 1985 to 1988. That was a time of social turmoil in New Zealand. The economic restructuring that was sweeping the world was imposed faster and deeper in New Zealand than elsewhere.
“No pain, no gain” was the catchphrase of Rogernomics. What it meant was that it was expected that the structural changes would be painful but they would be worth it in creating a more robust economy.
For young people, the changes were rapid and painful indeed. Suddenly, finding a job was not guaranteed and bright future prospects dimmed for many. A reduced welfare safety net meant that many were not sufficiently helped and inequality widened.
I don’t think that we can say for sure what aspect of neoliberalism is to blame, or even that we can definitively blame neoliberalism in the first place for the sustained rise in youth suicides. But it’s certainly a prime suspect.
As ever: what is to be done?
Officially New Zealand has focussed on mental health and mental health services as a means of dealing with the problem. Mental ill-health and lack of mental health services cannot explain the sudden doubling of youth suicide from 1985 to 1988.
Not surprisingly, then, this approach has failed. Mental ill-health undoubtedly has a part to play in many youth suicides, but there is no reason that this should be more of a problem in New Zealand than in other countries.
It is comforting to believe that young people will be safer if our mental health services are improved but it is largely a false hope. Saying so will, no doubt make me unpopular, but so be it.
So be it, and I agree.
Sadly, throwing more money at the problem isn’t going to help much, if at all. In fact, I submit that a big part of NZ’s current mental health crisis is down to excessive reliance on the state to fix the problem. A bigger part is due to state intervention in the first place. It is completely wrong, for example, that the state treats the simple administration of a proven cure for depression as a greater crime than rape or armed robbery, and instead busies itself funding a lolly scramble of often worse than useless placebos.
Whereas I don’t think more government money is going to fix the problem, I do think it’s downright criminal to cut funding to mental health services in a time of mental health crisis. And that’s what this National government has done. My point is that where the state has taken on responsibility for the provision of mental health services, it must honour that commitment in the meantime. Until such time as we can successfully devolve this responsibility to families, friends and support at the local community level. Faceless bureaucracy never made anyone happy.
At a time like this, it is utterly appalling that the government saw fit to cut funding to Lifeline, one of NZs biggest and long-established suicide counselling lines. And instead, allocate that funding to a “new, preferred supplier” called LaVey. All very well, perhaps, except for the six-month hiatus between Lifeline’s funding being cut and the new provider stepping in. Oh, and the fact that Bill English’s wife is on the board of LaVey! Nepotism doesn’t get much uglier. (LeVa, LaVey. Whatever.)
Wait just a moment! Take another look at take the load off. What on earth is that woman friend using to get her mate Dan out of his pit of depression? That’s right, it’s a hangman’s noose.
Sure, it’s supposed to be a lasso. But seriously, what sort of subliminal message are they sending to the suicidal? The people at the agency that created this plagiaristic monstrosity sure have a sick sense of humour. (It wouldn’t surprise me if they were the same outfit responsible for Colin Craig’s election campaign material last election.)
I’m glad that I also have a sick sense of humour and can appreciate it. I hope you do too. To all my depressed friends out there, I say, life is very much worth living, no matter if it seems like a sack of shit right now. Hang on in there!
The following is an absolutely Damning testimony about what transpired in relation to the Murder of Lavoy Finicum by Agents of the American Government.
The whole thing was a planned murder.
They ensured it took place somewhere cell phone coverage was poor, and away from witnesses.
At no point were Lavoy and company given opportunity to peacefully comply.
They were fired upon without provocation… driven to enter the kill zone that had been set up ahead of them.
They were prevented from reaching the safe haven of the Sheriff in the next settlement to whom they made a last ditch effort to reach.
Lavoy was gunned down in Cold Blood by Agents wearing no Identification, and had a 9mm pistol planted on him.
Video that was shot during the chaos by the victims was confiscated and remains hidden from the public.
Other footage taken by the Agents has not been relaesed.
Footage that has been released has had all identifications removed…. audio removed… and had it’s quality degraded to cover up the extreme and unprovoked volleys of gunfire that the authorities poured out… and the sequence of the 9 shots they fired…killing Lavoy.
This was an Execution and incarceration of dissidents… as sure as happens In Zimbabwe… Russia… and other tyrannies.
WITNESS TO THE LAVOY FINICUM SHOOTING SPEAKS W/ DMLLast night, due to time constraints, UNFILTERED played a portion of the interview with Shawna Cox. The attached video is the entire interview. You will find it very interesting. Worth a watch and share. DML and team will continue to put together the pieces of what took place in Oregon, plus, DML and team will be launching a full investigation into the BLM and how they go about their business.
Furthermore… as part of a Obama’s well planed Party political strategy to outlaw and arrest ‘Enemies of the state’… they have arrested Cliven Bundy and indited him trumped up charges even though all his actions were within the rights of citizens under the constitution which is the highest Law of the Land.
Obama’s ambitions to overthrow the second amendment are at the very forefont of American politics and has huge support amongst Democrat voters… and it is among this sheepish sector of the population that you find vile racist hatred for Cliven Bundy and the Cowboys whom are being trampled under foot…. *Because of their forthright stand on the second amendment*
The Motive behind all these Covert and criminal activities of the Obama administration is that with The ‘Fiscal cliff’ Debt crisis that threatens to shut down the US government, Obama is desperate to find pretext to nullify the Second amendment and to be allowed to use the police and military personnel to forcibly remove the arms of the american people and to arrest…. even kill anyone who resists…suppressing any hope of the American people fulfilling the founding principles of their nation …. and their constitutional rights to overthrow the government by force of Arms when it has become contrary to it’s proscribed legitimate function… the defense of the rights and Liberties of the American people.
Obama has it in his head that the maintenance of the Status quo is of far greater importance than operating lawfully, and is no doubt prepared to use the full force of the Machine against the American people.
His propaganda engines are in full swing to fool the sheeple to thinking the Law is on his side, and that any dissenters… like the Bundy Ranchers are racist religious extremists.
We also have situations elsewhere in which the true ‘Free press’… vigilant independent Journalists and bloggers critical of the government and Police disregard for the Law are being jailed for filming the police.
Quote: ‘Deo Odolecki, founder of Greater Cleveland CopBlock, host of CopBlock Radio and CounterCurrent News editor, was on trial the last two days at the Parma (OH) Justice Center regarding two cases where he was arrested while CopBlocking (also known as filming the police). Both cases involved First Amendment rights (like protesting unconstitutional government actions and filming the police) but instead of upholding those rights, Judge Deanna O’Donnell denied them when she sentenced him to 240 days in jail’
Though his grip on power is virtually secure due to a divided nation, Obama is fully aware that in this age of the Internet, it might only take a small number of Vigilant and vocal patriots to expose his tyrannical ambitions and potentially rally the American People against him… and so he is hellbent on silencing such voices.
We also have the FBI routinely Bugging and tracking whosoever they like… refusing to give any valid reason for their activities… and then threatening law abiding citizens when they get exposed!
Just business as usual?… maybe… yet it is part of an emergent systemic pattern that shows us the growing tyrannical attitudes of the system… and disregard for the rights and liberties of the people.
When he was visited by the agents, Yasir had obvious questions about the situation. Who had planted the device on his car, and why? Was he suspected in some sort of investigation?
The agents refused to answer any of his questions and told him that if he refused to cooperate with them that they were going to make this situation as difficult as possible for him”
And worse still All the way from Front line Police to Supreme court… the System is being filled up with Corrupt officers and Judges who show complete disregard for the constitution.
This from Dave Champion….
And even more distressing situation… because of how high up the ladder it has occurred…. one of the Few remaining Supreme court Judges whom was most faithful to the Constitution and has thwarted attempts in the past to circumvent the 2nd amendment has died ‘of natural causes’ and it is feared that he will be replaced with yet another Party political Stooge, allowing the Anti-constitutional agenda of the Democrat party steam on ahead less impeded.
This type of Political appointment has been going on for years by both parties and is the chief reason the constitution lies in shreds.
Yet with the Obama Administration the debt crisis, the accrual of power, the manufacture of Corrupt legislation, and undermining of the Rights of the people has reached crisis point.
AMERICA IS OFFICIALLY SCREWED
Today, Supreme Court Justice Scalia, a hard-nose conservative died. This means Obama will appoint a liberal judge and his pending amnesty will go through, and that’s just the start.
At 79 years of age, it is easy for most to accept media reports that The Judge succumbed to ‘natural causes’… before any medical examination or Coroners report has been completed, yet more suspicious minds…. some with a ‘more than generous’ helping of distrust of government wonder if the Conservative Judge was bumped off.
Conspiracy theory at it’s finest?…. maybe…. yet with all that has been going on with regards to the high stakes game The US Government has been playing… ruthlessly and methodically implementing it’s strategies to maintain power and control at all cost and by any means necessary… to prevent an uprising of the People in the face of eminent financial collapse… speculation about such a political assassination is not at all as far fetched proposition as would be the case under less dire circumstances.
A Government that is busy murdering and imprisoning Defenders of the Second amendment, would have little reason to hesitate given the ease of convincing the people that the death of an old man as being nothing more than nature taking it’s course…
An even more insidious possibility is for the powers that be to actually participate in the mass production of ridiculous conspiracy theories themselves… burying the truth under a mountain of insanity… and by provoking a backlash of shear incredulity render the truth unbelievable.
Having in the wake of Post 911 Panic poured in billions of dollars into ‘anti-terrorism’ equipment, strategies, and training of secret corps of anti-terrorist squads, CIA hitmen, etc who will obey any order given under the guise of ‘National security.
We are talking about large numbers of Police and military personnel who are trained to take out Fellow Americans deemed to be ‘Domestic terrorists’, etc. We are talking about Fema Camps set up to ‘deal with large numbers of Americans the State considers ‘a problem’.
Just looking at the sort of tactical response the handful of protesters in the Oregon wildlife center summoned from the establishment evidences the huge apparatus that covertly exists and is ready to be deployed.
Now such speculations about the assassination of Antonin Scalia may be nothing but paranoia, nonetheless even if his death truly is merely a ‘fortuitous happenstance’ for the Regime, still the opportunity will not be missed for Obama to attempt to install another political puppet into the Supreme court … one with the same disdain for the constitution as Obama has.
“With a half-dozen or more major cases and the ideological tilt of the court in the balance, Obama said he planned “to fulfill my constitutional responsibility to nominate a successor in due time.”
what makes the death of Justice Antonin Scailia so monumental is that by far the majority of Supreme Court judges are traitors to the constitution and absolutely fail in their duty to be the vanguard of Justice against abuses of power.
They have by majority decision already deemed it not to be the duty of the Police to protect and serve… but to enforce party political dictates and agendas…. this virtually overthrows the just foundations of the constitution in which the government is the servant of the people… not their masters.
Now The State is master… and the Police are there to force the people to Obey.
The Supreme court just decided that the police can invent the law as they go along, and that when they make false arrests that the people have no defense.
The Corruption and draconian powers of the Police are beyond belief!
They literally get away with murders every day.
So-called independent bodies created to keep an eye on the police suffer political pressure from the highest sources to absolve the Police of wrongdoing…. almost no disciplinary actions reach the courts.
Prosecutors fail to prosecute criminal Police activities, and when they do… Judges rarely convict.
Now the New York Police seek powers to prosecute Innocent people who are guilty of no crime other than resisting falce arrest!
Quote: ‘Cops using resistance as an excuse for their own abuse isn’t some wild conspiracy theory. Sam Walker, a law-enforcement expert and retired University of Nebraska-Omaha criminal justice professor, told WNYC in December:
“There’s a widespread pattern in American policing where resisting arrest charges are used to sort of cover – and that phrase is used – the officer’s use of force,” said Walker, the accountability expert from the University of Nebraska. “Why did the officer use force? Well, the person was resisting arrest.”
Quote: ‘Documents and contracts leaked when hackers recently breached the servers of the Fraternal Order of Police have revealed “guarantees that disciplinary records and complaints made against officers are kept secret or even destroyed,”according to a new analysis by the Guardian.
Questions have surrounded how police officers simply move on to the same job with another department after facing disciplinary action or complaints — and these leaked documents appear to offer at least a partial explanation:
“A Guardian analysis of dozens of contracts obtained from the servers of the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) found that more than a third featured clauses allowing — and often mandating — the destruction of records of civilian complaints, departmental investigations, or disciplinary actions after a negotiated period of time.
“The review also found 30% of the 67 leaked police contracts, which were struck between cities and police unions, included provisions barring public access to records of past civilian complaints, departmental investigations, and disciplinary actions.”
Anyone attempting to hold police accountable for inordinate use of force and other offenses are often stymied by the so-called Blue Wall of Silence — the invisible, and seemingly impenetrable, tendency for police to close ranks to protect their own when an officer is accused of misconduct in some form. But as the Guardian’s report shows, that mythical Blue Wall has very concrete manifestations.
In fact, as University of Nebraska professor of criminology Samuel Walker explained, there could be “no justification” for such purges of officers’ records, particularly since they would evidence use of force against civilians.”
In isolation each of the things I have mention in this post ought to be of grave concern…. yet when looked at in totality… it is absolutely frightening!
And I have only touched upon the tip of the iceberg!
All these Events and trends spell the end of American Liberty and the prosperity and justice that comes from it.
What stands ahead is tyranny, and poverty.
The Cosmos is falling into Evil Conjunctions and the Rise of The Man of Sin is Eminent.
His way has been prepared.
The Sheeple are ready to embrace him.
The powers of Darkness are moving against Christians and anyone else who will not bow the knee to the Leviathan State.
Yet the *REAL PROBLEM* Ultimately in all of this is *helplessly* *hopelessly* witnessing the acceleration of the America towards 666… because the powers that be have all but extinguished belief in the enlightened Ideals upon which the Greatness of America was founded.
The hope that a few bloggers and patriots will be able to rekindle the brush fires in the collective mind of such politically Zombified masses is virtually nil… and without that… all is lost.
The last Libertarians holding up the torch will be crushed into silence.
Satan Laughing spreads his wings.
I will leave you with one last David Champion video… it virtually signals the End…. unless by some miracle and New Enlightenment based upon the love of Liberty and the Inalienable rights of individuals causes the people of America to forget their partisan delusions of the Left and Right… and unite for the same cause that gave birth to their once great nation.
And this will only happen if everyone who sees The Riders of the Apocalypse on the horizon… calls their family, friends and neighbors to forget their Partisan squabbling… and Rise as a United people for the sake of Liberty against the Tyranny that is not at the gates…. but barging through the front door!
No matter where you are in the world… please sign this petition (below).
Not only do we all need to put pressure on the US government to look into this henious crime… but also to let them know… we … out here in the world beyond US Boarders are watching and are aware of the despicable deed being done.
Take a good look at what has happened in Greece.
It is happening all about western Socialist democracies, and the same fate will happen here too… eventually because New Zealand is governed by the same Economic and social lunacy.
The Ever expanding State, along with it’s ever expanding debts, and ever expanding injustices, is a consequence of not setting strict limits to Government spheres of action.
The world economy is in a very precarious state which could collapse at any moment, yet even if it takes 20 more years of Nutty Labour/ National Socialism to bankrupt the nation, do you really want your children, and their children to inherit an economy like the one right now in Greece?
That will be the inevitable legacy our foolish generation will bequeath to posterity.
Worse we will have brain washed them into living in matchboxes, and traveling on Public conveyor belts….
The Economic books of the future putting this Mess of Socialist interventionism and Fiat currencies down to a failure of the free markets….
New Zealand needs a New political party which forthrightly argues for great reductions in Government power, spending, etc.
If we *act now*…. so much less will be the Austerity/ misery involved in making the necessary reforms.
The longer things go on… the more severe
the pain and effort required to climb out of the Abyss.
