More than one way to ruin a country

The 100 Days – Claiming Back New Zealandwww.100days.co.nz


There can be no doubt at all that New Zealand, once at least an almost-democracy, is now under attack.

Cui bono? To whose benefit?  Or, Who profits by this…? a phrase used by Cicero at a time when the collapse of the Roman Republic was imminent, is one we, too, should be asking in relation to what is happening to this country. 

The signs that our own democracy is facing a virtual collapse are all around us – a claim that may sound exaggerated until we look at the indisputably racist, anti-democratic agenda that the Labour coalition, under the far-Left Ardern, is imposing on the country.

Similarly with John Key, described as “the smiling assassin” by those who worked  closely with him before he returned to New Zealand,  and who also appeared to think that his personal popularity would enable him  to get rid of  our  flag’s Union Jack –  a  reminder of our rich cultural heritage – Ardern is  confident of her  own and her government’s  popularity. She has gone even further, wanting to get rid of our country’s internationally-recognised name.  Why?

A leaked email revealing a directive sent down from her office recently, in relation to dumped Covid-19 documents, has this over-authoritarian Prime Minister telling her ministers not to give interviews, stating that “the government has no need to respond because of its overwhelming public support”.

 If this support continues, then we have lost this country, not only as a quasi-democracy.  We know that freedom of speech is essential to any democracy.  Yet her proposed legislation further attacking the right of individuals to freedom of speech – with extraordinary penalties lined up to intimidate the population – is part of any far-Left government’s agenda.  

The intent of He Puapua, to deliberately promote separatism and so divide the country, citizens against citizens, comes straight from the Communist Manifesto, with its attack on community integration. Her push to change the name of the country and attempt to make government documents less intelligible, sprinkled with Maori, or re-invented Maori  terminology –  replacing our most important national and international language   – is not part of her be-kind-to-one another exhortations.

 It is in fact highly discourteous, given that only an estimated 4% of New Zealanders speak today’s  teo reo – by no means the original Maori language, but one now largely reinvented,  similarly to Esperanto, but without the latter’s original intent to enable all the peoples of the world to speak a common language. It is English which has become the most important language internationally. Today’s largely reinvented Maori is spoken nowhere else, and is an anachronistic attempt to reinvent a language which has become largely irrelevant, even if understandably of historical importance to those of Maori descent.

However, the allocating of scores of millions of taxpayers’ dollars to attempt to inflict this largely irrelevant and inauthentic reinvention of the original Maori upon schoolchildren, their teachers and other institutions, diverts much-needed funding from essential areas such as health related issues. For example, it is to the government’s shame that Starship, our leading Children’s Hospital, is so  cash-strapped that it has to appeal to the public for funds… while scores of millions of dollars are continually diverted to wastefully promote what is no longer an authentic language.

Moreover, far more important languages need prioritising, given that te reo is not spoken in any other country in the world, and that New Zealand children would benefit far more from learning a language of genuine use to them overseas. Moreover, to expect new immigrants, speaking their own language  – and needing to become fluent in English – to spend precious time by being required to also take on the burden of this reinvented language, is unconscionable.

There is an urgent need to replace the now Marxist Ministry of Education with a system removed from the dominance, politicised decisions and dumbing down of the Left, and replace it with a body answerable to the needs of children and their parents.
Moreover, when everybody speaks English, this crosses boundaries of race and cultural values, promoting a sense of national cohesion.

A contributing factor to this social cohesiveness is the shared history of our traditional Western values – passed down to both those of European and part-Maori descent – but with the latter discouraged from celebrating this highly important part of their heritage. Again, one has to ask why…

This has not been by accident,  but as part of the attack on our national cohesion which too many New Zealanders have not yet recognised – having fallen into the trap of being wrongly persuaded that the Treaty of Waitangi set up a partnership between Maori and the Crown – not only one that never happened, but that in fact was impossible. Yet this canard is being skilfully promulgated to persuade the gullible that co-governance of New Zealand is justified. Moreover, it is not just co–governance which is envisaged, but one where superior rights are to be given to those with some percentage of Maori ancestry, entitled to claim extra political power and money as a chosen people.

It is good to see so many now opposing this deliberate promotion of racial divisiveness.  But what that it is being deliberately done needs to be far more fully recognised.

There have been warnings throughout history that a country divided against itself cannot stand. We all need to understand that the former peace and harmony of this  country is not only under attack by divisive pressure groups with prioritised access to government  – but is also supported by politicians with an agenda far from that of a cohesive society.
Presiding over all this social unrest is today’s ever-smiling Prime Minister,  seemingly intent on inflicting her own agenda decisions on us all. The writing is in fact on the wall,  with the enemy already within the gates.

But when more New Zealanders begin to at last ask this crucial question, Cui bono?  – the answer will become more obvious. And for those willing to fight for the country for which so many of our forebears  gave their lives, the very practicable way back can be found at www.100days.co.nz
