MUSINGS ON THE NEXT GOVERNMENT by Theo Perry
For most of my life I have supported National, even to the extent of having worked on electorate committees for a number of years. I do not support the present government.
I have no faith in John Key who I believe is doing whatever deals he must in order to extend his reign of authority. I do not believe this government is behaving transparently or acting in the best long-term interests of the country.
In particular, I am mystified at the manner in which laws are being constantly widened to give more and more authority and control to maori groups. This is already causing rifts in our community. When one part of society is given power and authority over another, strictly on the basis of ethnicity, it is called apartheid, a particularly toxic form of racism.
Apartheid can only succeed with firm and restrictive controls over the majority. Little by little, we are losing our freedoms. We already see actions such as maori only access to former national parks, mostly given to maori as a treaty settlement with the promise that public access is guaranteed. Of course, non-maori can visit these areas, but now pay a maori tax for guides and for entry. We see maori closing beaches and threatening recreational boaties, pestering them for money. We are seeing a weak and compliant government and judiciary bowing before the lying and obnoxious troglodytes at the helm of the Waitangi Tribunal, where former members have spoken out about being pressured to falsify records and information in order to grease the paths of increasingly dodgy claims.
We see this one race being disproportionately represented by all the negative statistics and constantly claiming they need more money and resources to close a gap that they falsely claim to be the result of injustices from two hundred years ago. We see allegiance being given to a race that, by virtually any definition, no longer exists, by people who trace 75% and more of their bloodline to the people who supposedly perpetrated these injustices. We see laws, language and history being changed and re-written in acts of unfathomable obeisance to a long dead race of vicious stone age cannibals. Spellings are being challenged and changed without apparent recognition that maori had no written language, and even the spoken word varied from one tribe to the next. We are seeing claims being settled for huge sums of money, for the second and third times, and often with the promise of future top-ups as well. We are seeing government funded maori agencies in their dozens misappropriating money through theft and mis-reporting, but seldom any response or enforcement for the miscreants, who are free to continue on their plunderous path.
Laws are being changed to facilitate claims for the control of that vital stuff of life - water - sometimes based on ridiculous claims about "a taniwha lives there" or some such.
The Department of Conservation has actively concealed information and the dissemination of facts that disprove maori claims of being the original settlers of New Zealand, even though the evidence is clear that maori were just another of a number of peoples that washed up on our shores.
This government-sponsored idiocy is now being accepted as a doctrine to be force-fed to our vulnerable children as part of a curriculum that has already raised a generation of fools. These lack the ability to investigate and challenge fictions that are easily debunked by anyone who thinks about something before hitting "like" and moving on to another picture of an unknown "friend's" cat. It is concerning that this government is taking us down that path, because to say 'No' to the maori may result in an abbreviated term for the government. And yet, the histories which are being blatently rewritten and falsified by maori pressure groups are not being corrected or challenged by the John Key Government. Why?
Can it not be recognised that these racist regulations are creating a division in our society? That constant appeasement of the diluted descendants of a race of war criminals is only ever going to lead to demands for the gravy train to add more carriages, and to never reach the end of the line?
Does this government not see that the legislation they are enacting has a use by date that may be determined by there becoming such a high number of beneficiaries to the legislation that it becomes unworkable, but may also be challenged by an uprising of the majority ending in resolution by force of arms?
And all of this is paid for by the taxpayers who have the least to gain, and for the benefit of a statistically indolent race who possibly have the highest percentage of non taxpaying unemployed and imprisoned members of any part of our society. And is any of this elevating the everyday maori? No, because these billions are remaining in the trust accounts, fees and paypackets of the tiny controlling minority.
This government seems to have created this situation by following a path of asset sales that could only happen with the support of the maori parliamentary members - not one of whom was elected except through the farce that is MMP. And we have paid, and paid and are still paying for maori support for a course of action that did not have the promised success, achieving some 30% less returns than forecast and was opposed by two-thirds of those who voted in a referendum on the subject. This two-third majority were arrogantly labelled by John Key as "extremists" and the referendum, like all others, was ignored by the government.
The inexorable advance of apartheid in New Zealand has been one of the most concerning aspects of living in this beautiful country. Coming from a deep love of democracy and individualism, I have a strong dislike of all governments, but particularly those that seek to divide people on the basis of race. This article expresses much of the sadness I feel at what New Zealand has become with the advance of race based favouritism that looks increasingly like apartheid.
At this point the author digresses into other aspects of the National government that I don't necessarily agree with, but as regards the move to apartheid I concur. It is a very disturbing movement and that does not sit well with Kiwis.
