Why doesn’t the government acknowledge Sweden reversed its laws liberalising cannabis? For 20 years, from the 60s onwards, Sweden had a thoroughly liberal policy regarding cannabis. But now?
Governments are supposed to respond to the wishes and directions of the people. But worldwide now, politicians have deservedly never been in more disrepute, very largely for their determination to do no such thing.
New Zealand politicians, too, are a major part of what is wrong with this country, particularly in the area of bad decision-making.
Moreover, Jacinda Ardern, dominating a party for which two-thirds of New Zealanders did not vote at the last election, is highly determined to have her own way.
This very determined politician, with her born-to-rule attitude, apparently has her Left-wing government continuing to work toward white-anting the important conservative underpinning of our once more stable society.
The folly of proposals to legalise cannabis matches the beginning of the attack on our elderly through the creaking-open door of euthanasia planning… following on the removal of more of the already minimal protection for our unborn children.
And now we are falling into the trap that Sweden renounced after 20 years.
Our Western youth have always regarded Sweden as a liberal, indeed liberated society, but the folly of its politicians today has now turned it into one of the most beleaguered countries in Europe – thanks to its over-liberal immigration policies and the flood of Islamic entries into the country
Our politicians should have been informed enough to know that Sweden actually liberalised cannabis in the 1960s. Then, finding this a disastrous experiment, with the usual unforeseen consequences, Sweden overturned this legislation in the 80s – and now has one of the strictest anti-cannabis policies in the world.
Why aren’t the media reminding us of this fact? Why isn’t Jacinda Ardern acknowledging this – so that the country can take part in this coming referendum on a far more informed basis?
Labour is costing the country a great deal . Equally worryingly, when such governments are thrown out because of public recognition of their destructive policies, their opponents typically do very little to undo the damage that has been caused.
We should be learning from Sweden’s lesson. Their 20 year experiment was ended for good reason.
