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

The persecution of Christians world-wide is something given no publicity at all in this country…

Why is that?

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…

“ethnic favouritism”, although colour-conscious programs are polarising…

CASSANDRA’S LEGACY: WE HAVE LEARNT NOTHING FROM 1995

You are here:

FOREIGN AFFAIRS

by Amy Brooke

As Bertrand Russell once commented, pragmatism is like a bath full of warm water heating up so imperceptibly you don’t know at which point to start screaming.

However, in embracing pragmatism, New Zealand’s political parties, including Labour and National, have abandoned a vital principle of government: even-handedness. Reacting to continual pressures, successive governments have parted company with New Zealanders as a whole, outmanoeuvred and intimidated by radicalised activists. Not only is their agenda prioritised: law and order are no longer adequately maintained.

In 1995, an article in The Economist described New Zealand as having embarked on “ethnic favouritism”, although colour-conscious programs are polarising, promoting disaffection and resentment. Yet, a succession of part-Maori activists, programmed into a deliberately nurtured grievance culture in Marxist indoctrination camps overseas, set to, spreading disaffection among their vulnerable young.

The result has been that not only young part-Maori but the country itself, including our MPs, have been sold an orchestrated litany of lies.

WAITANGI MISINTERPRETATIONS

The deliberate promotion of fanciful misinterpretations of a long-ago Treaty of Waitangi is having tragic results. The ongoing attack on the nearly 200-year-old treaty – which unmistakably established equal rights for all, both earlier Maori immigrants to this country and the later colonists – has been deliberate. Its provisions granted to the Maori tribes important legal title to their lands held at the time – with protection against predatory buyers – and for their material possessions – their taonga.

However, the word “taonga” was stretched by the flagrantly partisan Waitangi Tribunal, described by respected media commentator Brian Priestley as “a Star Chamber”, to include pre-European, Maori ownership of airways, radio frequencies, rivers, coastal foreshores and sea beds – ludicrous claims nevertheless to some extent favoured by our governments, always with their eye on the Maori vote.

It would be hard to find today an agreement whose meaning is more inexcusably misinterpreted as a “living document”, constantly reinvented to contrive even more advantages for a small minority of part-Maori extremists. On the basis of, in many cases, a tiny percentage of Maori genetic inheritance, they conveniently overlook their far larger European ancestry while promoting resentment against colonialism and ignoring its enormous benefits.

So opportunistic have been many of the claims, that even Maori Judge Eddie Durie, long-time chairman of the Waitangi Tribunal, cautioned tribal hierarchies against withholding payment from researchers if they did not agree to suppress information querying such claims. One brave historian, in a subsequent book, confessed to removing relevant material that undermined a tribe’s claim: he was refused payment otherwise.

COUNTER-CULTURAL RESENTMENT

What is happening in New Zealand is, as elsewhere, the deliberate corruption of democracy. Destabilising activism produces a counter-culture of resentment. Preferential treatment – and the never-ending raiding of taxpayers’ pockets by well-lawyered revisionist extremists – is white-anting our once far more peaceful country.

Moreover, resentment at a prevalent bias easily slides into anger. New Zealand’s now ongoing ethnic and cultural grandstanding, for financial and political ends, ensures funding for separate institutions and provisions that our MPs effectively endorse, ensuring a basic divisiveness. The Economist well argued in 1995 that, “to the wellspring of the principle that separates church from state, another should be added. That is, the separation of race and state.”

The lesson governments should have learned from history is that appeasement does not work. In dealing with a bottomless well of inherited and induced grievances, we face not so much social but spiritual problems: of rage, hubris, envy; resentments so deep that the conflagration, inflamed by unreal expectations, cannot be contained.

If there is a need to be meet, it should be met, regardless of race. Suggestions that taxpayers should continue to fund Maori-only cultural organisations are untenable.

Thanks in part to a majority compelled to pay for never-ending claims, the Maori economy is estimated at $40 billion. So, the ongoing requirement to fund Maori television and other special benefits is inexcusable. The tribes are well able to pay for these themselves. Especially given that wealthy neo-tribal corporations devoted to self-interest pay no tax, claiming charitable exemptions.

We are slow learners in this country. The Economist quotation I recently rediscovered from 25 years ago, its findings reported in a 1995 column I wrote for The Dominion, our capital-city newspaper. What were then facts remain facts, though the situation today is even worse. The promise that all multimillion-dollar tribal claims against the government (meaning, all other New Zealanders) would be settled decades ago has long been abandoned, and the treaty gravy train rolls on, and our culpable politicians are not facing the issues.

Cassandra’s legacy is apparently part of the human condition – especially in relation to the obtuseness of our hierarchies. Due to their long inaction, the flight from reality and reason – fanned throughout Western democracies by this same grievance mentality – has also gained ground here, spreading malice, mischief and misinformation throughout what was once called the Paradise of the Pacific.

Tross Publishing- those New Zealanders redeeming our times

Tross Publishing – we owe those New Zealanders redeeming our times

https://trosspublishing.co.nz/ 

I have felt guilty for some time about being unable to do justice to the excellent, highly  relevant books which John McLean, publisher of Tross Books, manages to produce, putting our largely leftwing, mainstream publishers to shame. His tireless campaign has embraced publishing well-researched writers addressing to the truth of issues about the actual facts, rather than media and government-supported propaganda,  in relation to the history of this country.

This is vital knowledge, given the long taken-over of our educational institutions – including the Ministry of Education – by those who initially openly boasted about being neo-Marxists when I reviewed their books for the Christchurch Press in the 1980s onwards.  However, they have long tunnelled underground, while we New Zealanders have been cushioned by our geographical isolation from the constant threat of invasion, both external and now internal, that Britain and European countries have had to face throughout the centuries. This,  and that the fact that the teaching of history has been so long deliberately withheld from the school curriculum by this same ministry,  means that New Zealanders as a whole are largely ignorant and complacent about the threat that communism, and indeed socialism,  poses to any democratic country. The silly rebuttal to those writing to raise awareness of the white-anting of this country was often that they were imagining “Reds under the beds” – a clever move from the far Left, as ridicule is a strong weapon when attacking those trying to urgently bring home the truth of issues.

However, I also remember the riposte given by a Catholic trade union leader, well aware of the infiltration taking place, to the effect that it wasn’t just a case of  “Reds under the beds” – but that  they were actually sitting up in bed and having breakfast brought in. Metaphorically speaking, he was right.

Since the demise of INVESTIGATE  magazine, produced by  Ian Wishart, we have had no contemporary journal providing much-needed analysis of the relentless attack with which we are undoubtedly faced. We owe Ian a great deal for providing highly relevant, contemporary analysis of just what was, and is, happening in this country and abroad – including the mischief-making and venality of those whose political agenda has been very much against preserving New Zealand as a democracy. This of course includes the parliamentarians signed up to handing over our independence to a One World Government movement, aiming for an over- governing body with its own army to keep dissident nations in check. Like ours?

While Australia has the excellent The Spectator, News Weekly, Quadrant and The IPA Review, New Zealand now has no important  and relevant journals – with the exception of ELocal, the community-based magazine producing worthwhile articles.

We therefore are very much indebted to John McLean of Tross Publishing who consistently publishes books bringing home to New Zealanders what is actually happening – and has been happening in this country – and the threats posed to us, again internally and externally.

A quick check of the  Tross Publishing website shows, in “Free Speech Under Attack”, how this deliberate move to exercise more and more control over all our lives,  the most fundamental tenet of any democracy, is being used as a weapon against us all.   In “The Jaws of the Dragon” and “China, Lied, Thousands Died”: The origins and spread of Covid-19”, Ron Usher examines the very real threat  China poses to the free world, about which our politicians have either inexcusably  slow to recognise – or culpably ignorant…or worse.

And what of the fact that New Zealand inexcusably keeps dropping the deadly poison 1080 – with its horrific effect on animals and birds indiscriminately dying as a result… while the government keeps remarkably quiet about the fact that it profits from its 90% ownership of the factories continuing to selling this product – with government ministers represented on the board! “The Quiet Forest: the case against Aerial 1080,” by Fiona M.F McQueen looks to be vital reading for those who have been assured of the safety of this product.

Another title that might well be read by every concerned New Zealander and by every politician is “24 Years; The trials of Allan Titford” detailing the extraordinary custodial sentence handed out to Allan Titford – a sentence greater than that given for  murder,   where parole is a possibility  after 10 years – or any other serious charge. This book examines the charges levelled against Titford, and the possible corruption involved. The extraordinary sentence handed out to this man, originally apparently as a result of what was private property being targeted with apparently opportunistic claims by local Maoris, shocked many, given conflicting evidence. 

With too many titles to list here, I can only recommend that readers themselves access  Tross Publishing where these and other such timely  books as Andy Oakley’s “Once We Were One: The Fraud of Modern Separatism”, One Treaty, One Nation” “Twisting  the Treaty” put paid to the propaganda, and indeed actual lies, now being told about the “Treaty of Waitangi.”  Like so many other treaties of the past, for the sake of the future of this country, and of the vital concept of one law for all – there’s a very good case for arguing it should also be consigned to the dustbins of history.

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.
