Marxism’s rotten fruit

New Zealand under attack –what’s happening to our institutions ?

It isn’t just our dug-in politicians. The attack on children, using  our well and truly captured education establishment, is arguably a social and intellectual crime…

Jacinda Ardern – not a clue about the “diversity” trap?

Has Jacinda Ardern really not got a clue about the “diversity” trap?

Those finding tedious our PM’s now routinely under-informed pronouncements about important issues of today, in areas where she’s apparently strangely ignorant, may like to draw her attention to what’s now happening in Australia.

Our National Party, too, is long overdue to wake from its over-cosy reliance on  highly suspect funding by Communist Chinese support prior to the last election – and its incredible naivety in granting a high List place to a former Communist Chinese spymaster… who apparently omitted such vital information from his CV.

Isn’t it high time all our political parties woke up to what China is up to in this part of the world?

The shameful kow-towing by Australian universities to Communist Chinese bullying through the controlling of the Confucius Institute by Beijing is undoubtedly contributing to the revolt by well-informed young Chinese students protesting against China’s illegitimate push to intrude further upon Hong Kong’s traditional independence. This is even to the extent of requiring the extradition of Hong Kong Chinese who have found disfavour in the eyes of Beijing – and even, reportedly, the possible forced extradition of Westerners in Hong Kong.

Apparently Ardern, inexcusably, has no understanding of the fact that multiculturalism – the ideologically flawed push for disparate cultures to coexist – without prioritisng their assimilation –  has proved a massive failure throughout Europe. That over-liberal immigration policies are bringing about immense problems in Germany, Sweden and other European countries seems to be lost on our PM – who is apparently ignorant of Samuel Huntington’s famous and prescient warning – “cultures clash.”

 “The Clash of Civilizations is a hypothesis that people’s cultural and religious identities will be the primary source of conflict in the post-Cold War world. The American political scientist Samuel P. Huntington argued that future wars would be fought not between countries, but between cultures.”

Events world-wide support Huntington’s thesis – a reality it is time Jacinda Ardern took on board. If she does not grow up intellectually on this issue, instead of prioritising girlish enthusiasms like “well-being”, she is going to cost this country a great deal. Many concerned New Zealanders think she already has.

Moreover, it would be interesting to learn how many who have responded to this Labour Party leader’s invitation to email her in expectation of getting a reply, will have experienced the same response as I have.

Writing back in March, 2019, I asked Miss Ardern – in relation to words she wants to see banned on Face book – what her objection was to the word “separatism”.

Was it a response to the reality that allowing into a Western democracy individuals from cultures with no intention of assimilating – and contributing to the values of their host country – is eventually going to have a deeply divisive effect? Why would this very obvious consequence – the separatist, even ghetto-like separation of new arrivals beginning to demand special provisions and privileges – be an issue Ardern would prefer to be prevent being freely discussed?

It is always up to any country to judge whether or not the admission of those who are going to call for separatist policies – as for example in Britain and Australia, with Muslim activists demanding Shari law and special recognition for their own preferences – is going to be to the advantage of the people whose country it is.

What when the result is not assimilation, but social unrest and destabilizing – leading to an inevitable backlash?

It was for this reason that the motto: E pluribus unum….Out of many, one...is found on the Great Seal of the United States.

Opting to encourage diversity, in fact, far from delivering in concrete terms a well- integrated, peaceful society, offers far more chance of an eventual backlash as a host country finds its democratic values challenged, and whittled away.

Moreover, an important issue which seems to have escaped Jacinda’s attention is that her March pronouncement condemning words she does not wish used – such as “separatism” – is inexcusably high-handed…as with any Prime Minister expressing his/her personal wishes  – and expected expecting these to be acted upon!

Miss Arden is not the only temporary political leader of a Western country who seems to have little idea not only of the damage that naively prioritizing the concept of diversity has already caused – but that the principle underpinning democracy is that of government by the people * – not government imposed upon the people. 

In Switzerland today this is just what happens*. Well over a century ago, the Swiss insisted upon the right to determine their own directions. They achieved this by imposing a 100 Day stop on any legislation imposed by their government, so that they themselves could debate it – and decide whether or not it should be allowed to go forward.

And this is just what happens today. Such a simple provision – with such a brilliant outcome.

The result is that Switzerland is now the most prosperous and democratic country in the world. Any overbearing politician such as a Jacinda Ardern, a John Key, or an equally domineering Helen Clark is forced to respect the decision of the people of the country  – an almost completely opposite state of affairs from where we, in this country, are now virtually ruled by our politburo – with three-year election choices that amount to very little choice at all…

Isn’t it more than time to fight for this one crucial provision for New Zealanders to win back a democracy?

Nelson Mayor’s abysmally un-critical embracing….

Check out this photo: Nelson Mayor’s abysmally un-critical embracing of this destructive, anarchistic and anti-Western group.

Nelson Mayor Rachel Reese hugged emotional members of Extinction Rebellion after the council voted to declare climate change an emergency.

https://www.stuff.co.nz/environment/climate-news/112774585/nelson-declares-climate-emergency

 See where  Stuart Basden, one of the founders of Extinction Rebellion whose members Mayor Rachel Reese so very foolishly recently embraced, set out its manifesto below…And it is those advocating his agenda whom Mayor Rachel Reese is supporting…Why?
https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/white-collar-eco-warriors-to-spread-chaos-swl273xdh   ***

This is what Nelson’s foolish Mayor and councillors have shockingly endorsed – The Marxist Extinction Rebellion group – now costing us all in yet more rises in rates – and loss of credibility. And almost incredibly,  Nelsonians now have to pay for an extremely highly paid individual “to manage climate change”.

Really? How? And all because of the sheer nonsense that we are facing a climate change “emergency”.

This arrogant move is being noted as a  huge departure from council’s annual plan and long-term plan. Without any public consultation, it involves raiding the port dividend.

Stuart Basden, 35, from Bristol, a co-founder {of Extinction Rebellion} was convicted of unlawful protests in May last year for blocking a tunnel into Heathrow by attaching himself to cars. he told the training day: ” By shutting down the streets we will force the government to negotiate with us, and hopefully they will cave in to our demands.”

As a reader comments: “Extinction rebellion really are the same old (censored) – but now mobilising the educated youth into nascent Green versions of the Red Guards.)

https://wattsupwiththat.com/2019/04/02/the-new-green-threat-extinction-rebellion/

“The plan is to replace the ”criminal” western political systems with a ”better democracy” designed by Extinction Rebellion in which e.g. voting is no longer needed (sortition is preferred instead). The practical post-revolution steps have also been thought out well in advance.”  ***

Extinction Rebellion isn’t about the climate. It’s about toppling Western governments. Fine by you, Rachel?

The gullibility of the  climate change cultists, including Jacinda  Ardern’s government  – seizing on yet more opportunities to tax us – let alone the shocking censorship by STUFF  – is costing us all.

The sheer folly of all this is obvious in the fact that even if New Zealand – and even both New Zealand and Australia!  – reduced every single CO2 emission –  it is acknowledged it wouldn’t make one peck of  difference to Earth’s climate.

So why all the hysteria? And what a massive con is being inflicted on us all. ..

Hats off to the councils which have refused this “climate change emergency” nonsense.

Apparently, no provision was made for any well-informed Nelsonians to debate or oppose the issue  when this costly decision was inflicted upon the Nelson public. Equally as culpably,  I understand one one councillor  quite shockingly turned off the microphone of a very experienced member of the public  – to prevent his being heard!

We need to vote them out at the next election.

***” I use the term ‘insanity’ carefully, with the intention of highlighting the need for healing. Indigenous First Nation people helpfully taught me to see the mindset of the coloniser as a sickness. In no way do I intend to marginalise or discredit the experience of people who have been labelled ‘insane’ by a normative system, nor who identify as being ‘insane’.

** “Climate Justice refers to the injustice that those who are affected first and worst by extreme weather events (the people in the poorer countries, the majority of whom live in the Global South) are not likely to be the ones who caused the climate emissions (the people who consume the most, including the pathologically wasteful cultures of Europe and Turtle Island (aka North America), and the rich who live/travel around the world).”Stuart Basden

Time to think again, councillors…
