Subject: Mentally injured abuse victims refused prof care & rehabilitation by ACC for 30 years
Dear Ms Collins,
I was horrified to read your news item about how you consider crime to be the fault of useless parents and I felt the need to point out that it is the past 30 years of neo-liberal governments that have caused 80% of this.
You were Minister of ACC, you know who I am because I wrote to you many times, I have protested many times about mentally injured abused men women and children not getting the professional treatment care and rehabilitation (safe homes and jobs) they are entitled to under ACC, health, disability, criminal, imperial, human rights and bill of rights laws.
If these parents you say are irresponsible had received the professional health care I have described above, and required under law then they wouldn’t be as dysfunctional as they currently are. If these people had not been forced to live in poverty for years, degraded and discriminated against by politicians, media and uninformed ignorant citizens then they wouldn’t be dysfunctional.
If mental health services had not been corrupted, shut down and moved to a drug based regime to advance drug companies then they would not be dysfunctional – they would get the child care and other extensive health, rehabilitation and social supports they are entitled to under New Zealand and United Nations laws.
That you would come out with such a statement I find extremely disturbing – blaming the very people you, those you work with and those who support you discriminate against and persecute to the point of violence addiction and suicide suggests you have some sort of mental health issue. I call people like yourself radicalised for good reason – it is a fact that neo-liberals who imposed immoral degrading reforms since the 1980s created our current violent and dysfunctional society. Please go to the internet and look up anything about the impacts of neo-liberalism and inequality on developed societies – its all there – there are some excellent TED Talks by world experts.
New Zealand is mentioned many times because of the significant increase in inequality over such a short time and the corresponding social issues that resulted, like crime, homelessness, family violence, sexual violence, addiction, mental illness and suicide.
You said in this article you were being un-PC, this isn’t true, you were being ignorant, bigoted and radical. The media will only let NICE people respond to your vicious hatred and radical opinions, mostly because our media have been an integral part of the moral degradation of our society into this violent state.
You are immoral, you advance rich people and businesses, disadvantage middle classes and persecute disabled poor. You terrorise vulnerable minorities of disabled (many abused) men women and children with laws you call reforms, you take their money and their dignity, then you make comments to the media that blame these people for your radical behaviour.
Now the damage National Party have done over the past nine years is causing so much damage in society people like yourself are in complete denial, still trying to pretend this isn’t your fault, when of course we all know it is. I am just thankful the mainstream media have started to tell the truth about the true drivers of crime, which of course are corrupt, cruel, immoral, bigoted politicians and community leaders.
I would suggest you read my website (www.jrmurphypoet.com) and see all the laws your government violate in order to advance your violent radical ideas. It also has all the health care and welfare provisions the government are legally supposed to provide but do not. They would rather borrow money and spend $millions on interest to foreign banks – so they can buy rich people’s votes by cutting rich people’s taxes. You are a seriously disturbed human being, and with your knowledge of the law I find what you do and what you say even more mentally deranged than other members of your party.
Did you realise Ms Collins that the first law is Westminster Statute the 1st, which says Common right be done to all rich as poor. Why do you think they made that law? You do realise moving from a country of equality to one of inequality that advances rich and persecutes poor violates this law. Next law is Magna Carta, which says you cannot destroy anyone and everyone has access to right and justice. I am sure you would know from recently Law Society reports and people like Justice Winkleman that thousands of disabled mentally injured and ill people are not getting access to justice (ie they cannot get lawyers – me included). You would also know all the laws your party has made that stops poor people from having access to lawyers, legal aid and justice.
You would know that your party drove disabled people to look for work, when they are responsible under United Nations to provide jobs for disabled people. Because of course you would understand in a radicalised capitalist/neo-liberal economic society no employer takes on people who are not 100% fit and able to produce at the maximum output.
Please also consider the information on my website (www.jrmurphypoet.com) as a plea for help to stop police persecuting and harming me for legally protesting about corruption, incompetence and abuse in mental health services – particularly in the Wairarapa where I live. I have made multiple complaints of crimes under Sections 150A 151 155 157 of the Crimes Act and been told they would not act on these serious complaints of criminal negligence. You are the minister, please do something about this gross miscarriage of justice.
If you require me to sign a privacy waiver, please advise me as soon as possible. I am sure as a lawyer and politician you would not like to see a disabled citizen being persecuted, discriminated against and having their human, civil and political rights violated. Word of law is vitally important to keep peace in a civilised society, without that we are seeing the dysfunction you are describing and blaming on the victims of prolonged terrorism rather than taking responsibility for what you and those like you have done.
Kia kaha to us all – time to admit your mistakes and rectify the terrible dysfunction you have caused in our society.
