Donald Trump’s pro-life values are certainly superior to those of Jacinda Ardern. Her vote here is shocking

Why would Jacinda Ardern vote to leave babies to die – when they have been born alive after an abortion! Incredible…

Are the Ardernistas and Greens living on Planet Stupid?

https://www.spectator.com.au/2020/10/the-captain-and-the-kings-depart/

Are the Ardernistas and Greens living on Planet Stupid?

“The Captains and the Kings depart…”

When the very fine artist, critic and columnist Giles Auty died recently in Australia, viewing with regret what had happened to his adopted country – and aware that we in New Zealand are in even worse straits – we lost one of those very few still standing to fight the corruption of these times. How have ignorance and stupidity – with or without deviousness – become a characteristic disease now in so many Western democracies?

Tragedy or comedy? It was impossible not to smile when recently listening to an LBC announcer in Britain recounting with incredulity the mindless behaviour of people there.  Almost lost for words, trying to understand what was taking place, he asked if they were living on Planet Stupid?  Equally worriedly, he pointed out that they actually have the vote…

Living on Planet Stupid? This phase really sums the question so many New Zealanders have been asking for so long about more than a few of our politicians – in particular with regard to the global warming con, which Miss Ardern, the basically Marxist Greens and too many shockingly lazy MPs have swallowed,  line and sinker.

Or have they? Given the challenge to the whole global warming hysteria, not only by well-informed scientists, but those apologising for having bought into it in the first place, we would be foolish to dismiss the Left’s – and indeed the Right’s – continued, culpable buy-in of this nonsense. What we need to remind ourselves is that promoting global warming alarmism has given governments the best of all opportunities to tax every single area of our economy  – all industries, business, farming, development, transport, fuel…the campaign against the use of coal, the search for oil…Every individual New Zealander  is  being impoverished through increased taxation – costs past on to us –  because of what is now recognised to have been a hugely exaggerated  – in fact basically non-existent threat  – to enrich the governments coffers.

What is particularly reprehensible is that even if the release of CO2 –  this important gas, but minimally represented in the atmosphere –  was drastically reduced in this country – it wouldn’t make one whit of difference to reducing global warming. Why are we being conned into politically imposed virtuousness, in no way at all reducing supposed global warming – while energy-hungry China and India are firing up more and more coal stations?  Much smarter than this country, the US has withdrawn from the Paris Agreement, one in a line of treaties imposed by activists on the Left promoting alarmist propaganda. Given all the recent evidence challenging this,  it’s high time for us to stand up to our politicians and demand an end to their lucrative tax gathering scam – because scam it basically is. Tell Jacinda – and tell James Shaw…

Another important issue, pushed by the usual suspects, is the attempt to try to rename this country Aotearoa – which was never even its Maori name. No matter, we are being manipulated by continuing pressure on politicians  – and the only-too compliant, mischief-making and leftist media. It is yet another push from the Maori Supremacy movement, relying on the goodwill or laziness of New Zealanders to give up opposing it. A policy of appeasement? However, we should know just from history that appeasement never works:  the demand increases – as has been happening continually with those from very few, but vocal, culturally bullying part- Maori extremists – who appear to have considerable ego problems. Although a distinct minority, their demands never stop. However, now great poetry has been removed from the school curriculum, the important reminder in Rudyard Kipling’s “Dane-geld” has been largely lost.

”And that is called paying the Dane-geld;
But we’ve proved it again and again,
That if once you have paid him the Dane-geld
You never get rid of the Dane”..

A recent poll showed the majority of this country voting 70 to 30% against this radicalized, extremist push. However, under the guise of being nice to those with a chip on their shoulder, too many politicians, and virtue-signalling media commentators and business managers are joining in the attack on our country’s name – New Zealand.

This is all part of a deliberately orchestrated movement to gain more and more territory, inch by inch, for radicalised Maori – none of whom in fact are predominantly Maori at all, and who determinedly ignore the immense benefits that the introduction of civilisation brought to this country.  It is not to their credit that they are dishonest enough to ignore and even disrespect their majority, non-Maori forebears.

It’s time to boycott Aotearoa-named companies and products that obligingly appease these radicals – and to point out that is culturally insensitive to not be addressed in the language everyone must understand – English – our important national and international language. Moreover, why should immigrants to this country – those from Asia, Europe, India, Cambodia,  the Philippines, etc. already with their own primary language,  be forced to compulsorily learn the newly invented, largely completely inauthentic “Maori” – as a result of what is basically cultural bullying? Competence in English is their and our prime need. Of course.

We are more than at the crossroads down the blind alleys of the racial, anti-white cultural bullying and the disproved nonsense of global warming.

It is that Miss Ardern is really so very ignorant? Or are there just so many opportunities for increased taxation and control by going along with this canard, Jacinda? Too many ignorant and compliant politicians have turned this country into an intellectual wasteland. All part of course, of the attack on our productive industries – and the destroying of our economy.

GK Chesterton pointed out that, “A tired democracy becomes a dictatorship.” And under Miss Ardern’s edicts and the Green party’s destructive agenda, this is arguably where are heading – a virtual dictatorship – control by a very few…

Yet it has never been easier to protest – and even a few dozen individuals  – (it is always the individuals who count) – contacting Parliament – the readily available phone number is 04 817 9999 – and asking to be put forward   to the office of the leader,  or to any member of a political party, means that one can state one’s views – in support of – or against any stance – or proposed legislation.

What can you/we as an individual(s) be waiting for? In this critical lead-up to the election, listening to voters and soliciting their support is very important to all politicians. They are doing so. But are they only hearing from the extremists? As so very often…

We should not be leaving the fight against any ill-tide of the times to the great-hearted fighters like Giles Auty. Ultimately we are, and will be, judged on what we do – and what we omit to do.

Why not ring 04 817 9999   – or email Parliament…Or?.. 

What are you doing to help? And well done indeed if you are J

Stop the damaging lockdowns, Jacinda. Bill Muehlenberg is right…

Stop the damaging lockdowns, Jacinda. Bill Muehlenberg is right…

https://billmuehlenberg.com/2020/09/10/the-case-against-lockdowns-and-police-states/

The evidence worldwide is that lockdowns have caused more damage to the countries that implemented them than was ever originally envisaged. The number of deaths from serious medical conditions that were brushed aside as lockdowns were prioritised will probably have cost us more deaths than those from Covid-19 – now recognised  to be on a par with other formerly damaging epidemics, such as the Hong-Kong or Spanish flu.

Jacinda Ardern’s edicts have been over-reliant upon media-feted medical “experts” with a very narrow perspective on the costs of these highly damaging shutdowns of the country to people’s lives,  businesses, health, and even hopes and dreams. The consequences are with us in the numbers of suicides – and in those now left facing financial despair as Labour’s controversial, anti-business coalition plunges us into an abyss of financial debt  -and promises more and more of the same, in a vote-buying pre-election spree.

Give this government’s  pre-coronavirus attack on our productive industries such as oil and gas exploration, the evidence is that we are now being further damaged by a government with an overwhelming socialist agenda. And the extraordinary,  virtually totalitarian controls that have been placed upon our democracy  and upon individuals’ actions are highly ominous.

What has been made very obvious with Ardern’s government, in partnership with the Ministry of Health, is not only the ongoing blunders that have been made along the way –  and the constant excuses we have been subjected to with regard to the lack of much-needed testing for border controls,  in our  state of total unpreparedness – is the lack of competence the country should have been able to rely upon.

This, is well as the pattern of attack by highly dangerous viruses over recent years should have given due warning that it was time for contingency preparations to have been made and ready. With one or two honourable exceptions,  the medical “experts” seem to have also missed the boat in this area.

Add these factors to the centre-staging Jacinda Ardern’s overwhelming conviction of rightness – and it’s time for New Zealanders to say, as so many already are –  that they have had enough..

 From two typically generous Australians – in contrast  to our literary mafia

From two  typically generous Australians – the contrast to our literary mafia in this country?

https://ncc.org.au/newsweekly/music-cinema-books/problems-across-the-tasman-similar-to-our-own/

So-called ordinary New Zealanders are basically decent, generous people, but our literary bully-boys and- girls in this small country where well-heeled pressure groups rule the roost are really quite vicious. And as poor Charlotte Dawson found to her cost, the small world of self-regarding  media “celebrities” has also become so indoctrinated in left-wing propaganda that –  in spite of Stuff newspaper’s ludicrous claims –  fair, objective reporting and competent analysis of the issues facing us today is largely non-existent in our mainstream media.

With my enthusiastically received books for children long blacklisted by the rabid Left (as told to my distributor) because my then Dominion columns  expressed considerable concern about the takeover of education – and the exaggeration of so many treaty claims –  my timely title – The “100 Days – Claiming Back New Zealand…what has gone wrong and how we can control our politicians”  was of course boycotted by reviewers.   ( I can think of one highly antagonistic and competitive left-wing writer of basically chick-lit, who has managed to publish a list of all the children’s writers in this country, well, not quite all…This,  in spite of “The Mora Stone” being  included in the Children’s Literature Foundation of New Zealand nominations for the top ten Notable Senior Fiction in its year and in the initial list of nominees for the prestigious international Fantasy Award for Children’s Literature in the US Mythopoeic Awards for Children’s Literature. It was listed on a Yahoo site by another reviewer.as one of her top five all-time historical fantasies.

https://www.amybrooke.co.nz/books/intermediate-and-young-adults/the-mora-stone/

However, the Left apparently just don’t happen to keep up with things…especially when their ideology is challenged…

I can think of a handful of really fine New Zealanders indefatigably fighting to win this country back from its basically Marxist takeover of all our institutions. Among those contributing to the latter is Jacinda Ardern, with her radicalized, socialist determination to inflict her own extremist agenda on what was once a  far happier country. Her wish to basically make it easier to have more babies killed before birth also has Miss Ardern quite shockingly voting against allowing  doctors to supply medical help to any aborted child left to die – which goes against  the grain,  as far as New Zealanders are concerned.

And what about Ardern’s push  to have highly worrying euthanasia legislation inflicted on the country? Or her party’s  favoring of the opening of Pandora’s box with “liberal” legislation promoting the increasing use of  recreational cannabis (because, of course, this is what it will do – with all its detrimental effects on health and safety). Again, this is typical of so many of the shortfalls in thinking of  those pushing their own barrow…

Where is there any acknowledgement from this apparently ignorant government of the fact that Sweden decriminalized cannabis use in the 60s, but after 20 years, made it illegal again, in the 80s? 

For no  reason at all?

Why do our politicians never learn? Why was John Key’s government foolish enough to allow a (former?) Communist spymaster  to be given a list ranking as a national MP –  and even to refuse to expel him when they learned that he had concealed this (i.e. basically falsified) in  his CV). What has been behind the National Party’s too cosy cuddling up to Communist Chinese business interests in this country – to the detriment of New Zealanders as a whole? Yet there have long been warnings of China’s determination to infiltrate and dominate the West, buying up land, businesses  and strategic assets, and influencing governments’ policies by whatever means possible, including spying.  Key himself is on record as praising the leadership of Xi Jinping,  tyrannically presiding over a country where the punishing, imprisoning and torturing of citizens  – including, horrifically, removing the vital organs of dissidents while alive to sell to those seeking transplants  – has become part of  a pattern of horror being woven all over this unfortunate country.

It is good, therefore,  to see the rise of the New Conservative Party with new faces and policies which will resonate with majority New Zealanders, particularly those respecting the foundation values on which this  country was built. Given the decline in New Zealand First’s following, in particular on Winston Peter’s ill-advised, last-minute and unheralded support for the UN’s global migration pact – never  put to the country to ratify  –  the New Conservatives are in a strong position to cross the 5% threshold, particularly given growing recognition of the Green Party’s policies as extremist, basically anti-productive and destructive to the prosperity of this country.

It was interesting then, to read this generous Australian review of my  100 Days,  Claiming Back New Zealand…. book, focusing on the one vital provision that the clever Swiss people wrested from their own government to ensure that it is the people themselves – referred to as “sovereign”  – who are able to make the decisions concerning the future of their own country – rather than the politicians.

Two fine writers are involved here – Paul Collits – who tells of his own experiences while living and working in New Zealand –  and Peter Kelleher, editor of the excellent Australian News Weekly, supplying the kind of incisive commentary and analysis of events in this part of the world which is very much lacking in New Zealand. For this  reason alone, New Weekly deserves the support of more New Zealanders. https://ncc.org.au/newsweekly/ 

Why is it than in this country we produce nothing now to fill the gap left by Ian Wishart’s INVESTIGATE – when our neighbours can produce other fine Australia publications such as the UK/Australian Spectator, edited by Rowan Dean, with articles from exceptional writers such as Giles Auty, James Allan, and others – as well as Quadrant and the IPA Review?

With some wonderful exceptions, I have routinely found Australians  on the whole, far more generous than Kiwis writing in these and other areas. And our annual Summer Sounds Symposium was fortunate enough to attract many fine speakers from across the Tasman – including the late Hal Colebatch, Keith Windschuttle, David Greagg (Wizard Dafydd), Patrick Morgan, Warren Reed (with his prescient, 1995 book about Chinese Spying activities, treachery and secrecy already within Australian bureaucracies),   Joseph Poprzeczny, John Ballantyne, Peter Westmore, Paul Monk, David Flint and others making outstanding contributions.

The long-term outcome of these symposia was the thinking that underpins both the book reviewed here by Paul Collits,  and our movement to claim back this country  – www.100days.co.nz and  on Facebook’s https://www.facebook.com/100daystodemocracy?ref=br_tf

We need the knowledge of what as actually been happening  to reach more New Zealanders, long deprived of anything approaching a quality education in our dumbed-down state schools, where, as part of the whole Marxist agenda,  even the teaching of real history has been withdrawn, replaced with its reinvention by activists. And part of their agenda is their stealth movement to rename this country.

They will win – if not enough New Zealanders care enough to fight back. And we should remember that everything, ultimately, depends upon the individual…

The indefatigable Bruce Moon.  His unmissable book & political corruption

The indefatigable Bruce Moon – and how all our political parties have behaved disgracefully.  His unmissable book .*

Treaty of Waitangi issues have long become an “orchestrated litany of lies” to which New Zealanders have been subjected by self-serving extremists from the 60s onwards. The intellectual laziness and sheer corruption we have been subjected to with regard to treaty issues is quite simply unforgivable.

But who is left to be surprised? There must by now be very few NZers  who have not  wondered  what has happened  to  cause the extraordinary proliferation of treaty claims  on board  the Treaty of Waitangi gravy train which has continued on many years past the date on which only major challenges were meant to have been examined and settled. But the grievance industry has learned how to tap into a bottomless well, to lodge more and more claims and to gain more and more advantages, greatly assisted by our vote-buying political parties – in many cases simply kowtowing to those making the most noise After all, the cunning Mrs Harawira advised Maori activists never to be satisfied, quoting Malcolm X, “The squeaky wheel gets the most grease…” They have certainly taken her advice. 

New Zealanders of good will  – by far the majority of both now part-Maori and  non-Maori – will be shocked  by the exposing of the real facts in the brilliant Bruce Moon’s excellent corrective, his  unmissable and highly readable  book,  “New Zealand –  The Fair Colony. “Other good historians over the years have consistently tried to wake the public up to what has become a massive con. And it is perhaps a reflection of the fact that since the 1950s onwards, the quality of education has massively declined in this country, that so many New Zealander lack intellectual curiosity, and have become only too successfully propagandised.

 So few have taken the trouble to analyse and understand what exactly has happened, at least partly as a result of the phasing out of the more demanding academic subjects such as Latin and Greek, the almost total neglect of the teaching of history, the failure to teach the grammar and syntax of English – the most important international language – and the general dumbing-down of subjects. As Henry Ford reportedly said, “ Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it.” Aiming for excellence in sport has been promoted in this country, without the corresponding and very necessary promotion of the importance of learning to think well. 

So this book will be a well-timed revelation to many. It had its origins as “A text prepared for the New Zealand History Teachers Conference, Waitangi, 6-8 July 2020.” Because of Covid-19 it was never delivered, which is now to the advantage of us all. Too many of those called history teachers have been thoroughly brainwashed by government propaganda, and the indoctrinated do not find it easy to challenge their own programmed thinking. We can only hope this book reaches them as well. 

Additional chapters include  material such as  the address which Bruce Moon was asked to give as a talk to the Nelson Institute on 8 April, 2018 and was also never delivered, another disgraceful episode among those with which we are now becoming familiar. This eminent Nelsonian was actually prevented from speaking – although previously especially invited to – because of thinly veiled threats made by two individuals to the Nelson library and the Nelson City Council staff – who thereupon decided to cancel his talk.

Moreover, while the unattractively named “Stuff” newspaper chain boasts about importance of good, objective  journalism (but has openly stated that it has  no intention of ever publishing any well-informed material challenging the global warming hysteria)  it has also extended its ban in relation to treaty issues. The Nelson Mail, long abandoned by so many subscribers who supported it while it was a far better newspaper, has a record of  consistently  refusing  to publish Bruce’s well-written and well-researched letters correcting quite wrong “facts” in articles written by local activists. Nor is Bruce is the only local correspondent to have his letters suppressed – if they apparently encounter editorial prejudice.

This book is an absolute must. Not only does it contain the planned address to the New Zealand History Teachers Conference, and the banned talk to the Nelson Institute, there are separate chapters dealing with such important issues as “Ngai Tahu’s crooked path from rags to riches”, “Changing our country’s name by stealth”,  “Some tips about Te Reo”, “The Waitangi Tibunal must go”, and among others,  “The Rangiowhia Affray” – a particularly  striking account of the downright lies  told  in complete contradiction to what actually happened on that occasion. Genuinely shocking,  it details how the actual facts of brave Europeans, risking their lives to save Maori individuals, have had these replaced by the sheer badness of their deliberate twisting.

Another particularly telling chapter, “Ngai Tahu duplicity goes on and on”, reminds us of the incredible decision made by District Court Judge Joanna Maze who found so appalling a crime committed by a helicopter pilot (who, on Christmas Eve, 2011, hovered over the summit of Mt Cook / Aoraki) that she thought her “starting point for sentencing had to be “the maximum penalty available, a fine of “$5000”. Only the guilty plea of the pilot led her to reduce this to $3750. Mrs Maze said the episode must be “seen as one of sacrilege to those to whom Aoraki/Mt Cook is of central cultural importance”. The Department of Conservation chimed in with equal nonsense, having bought into Ngai Tahu’s claim that the peak represented to Ngai Tahu the most sacred of ancestors“- and so on. What can we say about  this one instance, among many, of the sheer duplicity of this cunning and immensely manipulative tribe,  who, on the face of it, seemingly  managed to con this judge because of her apparently little knowledge of this tribe’s actual history  – and of the sheer nonsense underpinning such a claim. It is a very good example of so many of the distortions, the stretching of facts and the downright lies which have been foisted off onto the country  – including on our equally ignorant, and/or self-serving politicians. 

This book should be read by every politician, every history teacher, and available to all primary and secondary teachers in our schools. It challenges the quite blatant twisting of the facts of our co-history, which,  in the hands of the now blatantly captured Ministry of Education  – (long white-anted in  that “long march”  through our institutions) –  has basically become a tool for activist extremists re-writing our history and  substituting self-serving propaganda  – such as the completely untrue myth of  “partnership”. We can also note the firm intent to prioritise the historically totally inaccurate “Aotearoa” as the Maori triumphalism movement strives  to thrust supposedly superior tribal values on a country which has become thoroughly brainwashed…thanks, too,  to a complicit media.

It is also unacceptable that  no accountability is required by our present Prime Minister’s handout government, helping itself as usual to taxpayers’ pockets and  robbing Peter to pay Paul with racist-based funding,  as all our political parties have now been doing for decades. It can well be regarded as public theft. Moreover, even 25 years ago, the highly regarded, UK-based Economist, warned, in 1995, that this country had embarked on the worrying course of “ethnic favouritism”. It has got worse. I recall the dismay, too, of emigrants escaping from the apartheid system in South Africa, only to note in dismay that we have gone down the same path.

We all know that Labour is dodging the cost of the damage done to the economy, as a result of the spread of Covid-19 and the cost of the lockdowns to so many individuals and businesses. It has not just been a case of arguably-needed handouts, but of the contrast between the $56 million bestowed on part-Maori representatives in contrast to the $27 million for long established welfare organisations to help address areas of genuine need. A palpable difference – but why? – when all help should be based on need – not on a part-racial inheritance.  Questions are also  asked about has become known as the  MP Shame Jones’s  slush fund – although accumulatively  hundreds of millions of  taxpayer dollars have routinely been bestowed on Northland activists these recent years.

Down south, too, on the West Coast, where part of the $56 million has apparently gone to help part-Maori tourist operators, locals have noticed a sudden increase in individuals owning  4-wheel-drive vehicles – although these are not exactly needed  on the bush trails where conveniently placed pieces of greenstone wait to be suddenly discovered with a “Good heavens! Fancy finding this!” delivered to gullible tourists. 

Long ago lolly-scrambles spring to mind… as our governments apparently require no accountability for the largesse showered on pseudo-tribal groupings, where the money handed over so often to its administrators largely remains with their extended families, and where prosecutions have been strangely lacking over the years when misappropriation of funding has been proved. The gravy train steams on.

It’s impossible to hear do justice to this essential book, underpinned by Bruce Moon’s qualifications and achievements. He studied mathematics and physics at the University of Otago and graduated MSc (Hons). A rocket scientist in Australia and England, Bruce was an early pioneer in mathematical modelling with a computer. Returning to New Zealand, he installed the first university computer at Canterbury University in 1962.  Co-founder of the Canterbury branch of the NZ Computer Society, now Information Technology Professionals, he was National President in 1978-9 and is an Honorary Fellow. He also holds an MSc with distinction from the University of London and is a Fellow of the Institute of physics. 

Bruce’s volunteer work has had him teaching at a mission school in Vanuatu. As a volunteer he taught physics at the Institute of Buddhist Dialectics and the library of Tibetan Works and Archives in India. He has taught English to Tibetan refugees from Chinese oppression and worked with disabled people elsewhere.  Bruce also served for many years in the Royal New Zealand Naval Volunteer Reserve, and was awarded The Volunteer Reserve Decoration He has maintained an interest in New Zealand history since his school days, and has been described as “a consummate Treaty authority”. 

Naturally, therefore, he is apparently just the sort of person the Stuff newspaper chain wants to ban.

Although I have researched and written on treaty issues for over 30 years, I have rarely come across a book so very readable, relevant, and well-written. It is a sobering corrective of so much which our gullible media have also swallowed and inflicted on us, and deserves the widest possible readership.

Government versus the people of New Zealand


I recall it being reported fairly recently that  Labour Minister Andrew Little doesn’t read information presenting points of view he finds unwelcome
.

I think we’ve all realised this for some time. Little apparently has the bit between his teeth…

So much for government of  the people, with the consent of the people. Instead,  we now have government against  the wishes of the people…

The overwhelming number of submissions in relation to the  ominous pro-euthanasia legislation opposed this…for very good reason.

The movement below making more New Zealanders aware of just how damaging this legislation is – also, of course ,strongly supported by the far Left, and the very determined  Jacinda Ardern – deserves our support.

I’m more than happy to forward it as sent to me.

Please do help them if you can – and at least send this email on to make what is happening more widely known.

New Zealand is so now past the crosswords with regard to the activist lawmaking not supported by the majority of so-called ordinary New Zealanders.

And only individuals beginning to stand up to be counted can reclaim this country…

It is claimed that those who do nothing cost us all…

True or false..?!

 Please read below- to help.

First, the bad news

As you probably know, Parliament didn’t listen to our concerns, nor to many raised by medical and legal experts.

So in September we’re voting in a binding referendum on whether the End of Life Choice Act should start to operate as law.

The bad news is that most New Zealanders are uninformed…

  • 74 % think the EOLC Act would make it legal to turn off life suport. This is already legal. 
  • 75 % mistakenly think the Act allows euthanasia only as a last resort, for people in unmanageable pain, after all treatments have been tried.  

– Curia Market Research Poll

 

 

We’re not voting on whether ‘assisted dying’ or euthanasia should be legal.

We’re voting on a specific version, which is much riskier than overseas assisted dying laws.

This Act would make it legal for doctors and nurse practitioners to administer a lethal dose of medication (euthanasia) or to give it to someone to self-administer (assisted suicide) –

to die as early as 3 days after receiving a diagnosis

…without having to see a specialist, without trying any treatment first, or being screened for depression…

…and without needing to tell any friends or family.

 

 

But here’s the good news!

A growing groundswell of people are hearing about the problems in this Act and are voting “no”.

A professional, nationwide campaign is being rolled out soon to reach the wider public. This campaign will encourage a “no” vote without promoting any organisation.

However, donations and volunteers are needed urgently to make this happen in time. Would you please chip in, as generously as you can afford?

Could you please forward this email to friends and family who may be keen to help too? Thanks!

Don’t all lives still matter?

https://www.spectator.com.au/2020/06/do-all-lives-still-matter/

Yet what was the leading cause of death worldwide in 2019? 

Reverse racism now runs riot, with destructive mob rioting being deliberately promoted  –  and civilised standards,  behaviour and debate now lost. 

And heaven help those brave conservative Black Americans trying to stand up to what has become an all-pervasive evil…

Are you supporting us fighting now to reclaim our country? If you can help, even a little, please do!

We very much need donations, too, to help get our message of hope even further.

Make no mistake –  it has also begun here in New Zealand.

Don’t think it hasn’t – and only individual parents at last standing up to the teachers who support the  Ministry of Education (long invaded and taken over by destructive Marxist infiltrators) can defeat this actual evil. For evil it is.

The great Times columnist, Bernard Levin, warned us that “ The atrophy of moral judgment is the characteristic disease of our times – the inability to see evil – and the willingness to condone it.”

How many New Zealanders are simply condoning what is happening in all these highly changeable areas?

The ridiculous attack on reason…

REFLECTION
The ridiculous attack on reason

by Amy Brooke

News Weekly, May 16, 2020

I remember once coming across a saying that the dead have as much power to influence us as the living, through what they have written. Yet today educationists ignore so much of what our greatest writers and thinkers had to say, with most ”educational” activity no more than a complicated way of inflicting on children little of lasting value.

Plato, however, reminded us: “If a man neglects his education he walks lame for the rest of his life.” Yet the once widely acknowledged fact that teaching each generation how to use their minds well is at least as important as sporting activities, has long been displaced by curriculum subjects incorporating radicalised propaganda. Today we can add our Ministry of Education’s insertion of global warming groupthink into our schools curriculum.

I recall years ago one of my sons remarking that his secondary school was hosting a government-sponsored representative to make sure all students embraced the “correct” thinking in relation to the politically hijacked Treaty of Waitangi. The latter’s simple, straightforward provisions have long been distorted by activists for political advantage.

What was particularly striking was the local newspaper’s picture of this young woman addressing some senior students, and frankly admitting she was there to correct any “wrong opinions” their parents might be passing on to their children.

My son could always hold his own in debate, and I reminded him how important it always is to examine thoroughly both sides of any issue, weigh it up as objectively as possible and then defend his own thinking. After all, I pointed out in my naivety, he would have been taught at school, too, that the most important thing is to follow one’s own conscience with regard to what one thinks is right.

Now, incredibly, this is the last thing children are taught. Rather, that for the sake of social harmony, one should endorse groupthink.

Recently, reflecting on the irrational thinking now given ritual obeisance – with so many conforming to a herd mentality embracing the delusional – I was reminded of Aristotle’s “man is an imitative animal”. The advertising industry knows this well. And it goes a long way to explaining the conviction many individuals now have that the fact they were born biologically male or female is irrelevant. They seem convinced that by feeling differently they really become different. By such logic, if I feel I am a child again, not an adult, then I am. Or an elephant, if the feeling takes me.

And we are now being asked to endorse, with the capitulation of the hierarchies, allowing males claiming to be females to participate in women’s sports, to use women’s private facilities, toilets, changing rooms — to be lodged in women’s prisons where incidents of rape unsurprisingly result. But why this acceptance of groupthink – of insisting that self-delusion is acceptable?

One well-respected English writer, using the pseudonym of Alpha of the Plough, maintained: “There is a large part of the public, possibly the majority … born to be fooled, which will believe anything because it hasn’t the faculty of judging anything but the size of the crowd, and will always follow the ass with the longest ears.”

DISCOURAGING THE ‘FOOL’

One of the books I most treasure is Unended Quest, by Austrian-born philosopher Karl Popper, who lectured for a time in New Zealand at the University of Canterbury, where my father sat in on his lectures. Popper gave this autographed copy to Dr Margaret Dalziel, in 1982.

Before she became Emeritus Professor, I had Margaret as a tutor at the University of Otago. She passed the book along to me. In it the author of The Open Society and its Enemies discusses an issue long puzzling me: the nature of intelligence.

In my time working as an independent consultant to a think tank in Wellington, particularly in relation to education and treaty issues, I became increasingly struck by the fact that many highly regarded individuals, having achieved outstanding marks in scholarship and other national examinations, were puzzlingly rigid in their thinking. I came to realise that very “clever” individuals, some holding positions in Treasury, others with leadership roles in political parties, were by no means deeply intelligent. They, too, took their cue from the intellectual fashions of the day.

Popper clarifies this, distinguishing between the dogmatic and the critical methods of thinking. He writes that the dogmatic way of thinking comes first, due to an inherent need for regularities, preceded by learning – first in the sense of discovery, then by imitation and by practising.

He postulates, however, that it is the critical thinking of a minority of individuals, examining and attacking presuppositions, that is particularly valuable. He argued that what characterises their creative thinking, apart from the intensity of interest in a problem, is a much more rare ability to break through the limits of the range of dogmatic thinking.

Given the sheer irrationality with which we are now faced at every level, and the aggressive attack by the now dominant left, perhaps it is time to reflect on George Bernard Shaw’s assertion that the future depends upon those whose laughter discourages the fool — a word that we understandably tend to avoid — rather than encourages him. Today we can certainly add her!

In fact, there is an important battle now under way. So is “risus est bellum” (“laughter is war”) a reality we are overdue to embrace?
