I’ve had an epiphany after reading George Irvin’s book about the Super Rich and rise of inequality in developed countries, except the 5 Nordic countries.
I am so so angry, also after watching Campbell Live last night and those revolting parole board members, degrading and grilling that poor man. Neo-liberals knew cutting taxes to the rich, making the poor pay more tax, driving manufacturing jobs overseas, then cutting large amounts of welfare and healthcare to the poorest people was going to cause crime, violence, addiction, stealing, deaths (suicides and murders) and serious dysfunction in society – they did it anyway. The Nordic countries never did, they kept high taxes to the wealthy and good safety nets for the poor and disabled. They kept their standards of living, they are some of the most peaceful countries on earth – while New Zealand’s has slipped more than any other country in the world. We are a divided nation full of dissension envy, hatred, poverty, homelessness, broken families, broken people – where the educated and rich despise the uneducated and poor (I am currently doing papers at Victoria I can show you proof of this bigotry in power point slides).
Lately I keep thinking of the National Anthem and how those words are a promise and part of the Constitution of this country. YEAH RIGHT!
I am definitely going to be writing to John Campbell and each one of those parole board members and voicing my disgust at the part they are playing in persecuting victims of a cruel immoral corrupt neo-liberal political agenda financed by the super rich. That man on the television was the perfect example of a statistic – he would not have been in jail 30 years ago, he would have been working in the Railways, living in a railways house, raising his family and enjoying what our environment has to offer. If New Zealand had continued with High Taxes and good welfare, health and justice provision where would we be now? I GUARANTEE YOU WE WOULD HAVE THE SAME SOCIAL STATISTICS AND ECONOMIC STABILITY (GOVT WEALTH) as the Nordic countries are enjoying.
We would have $20/hr minimum wage, we would have 33 hour working week, we would be innovators in eco-science, sustainability and a leading example of social functioning to the world. We were going that way until our government was corrupted and we were all brainwashed into believing neo-liberalism was the only way. ACTUALLY WE WERE CONNED, and the people that did it are running our country still, they’re in parliament, in the public service and in our judiciary.
Yesterday Shane was going on and on about the Saudi sheep and how the government are paying this creep out for loss of profits when we stopped live sheep exports years ago. If the government can pay out one man $millions then they can pay me out for cutting tariffs, cutting taxes to the rich and cutting services and professional health care to people in New Zealand. They can pay me out for deregulation and free-trade on a scale seen nowhere else in the world. “Paul Ormerod in his book Death of Economics said – NZ went from being one of the most highly regulated countries in the world to one of the most unregulated. Something no other country would have dared for fear of political suicide….”
I am definitely going to find out how to take a case to the High Court as a lay-person, I am going to challenge the government on paying out to this man for being offended, but they won’t pay out to a suicidal sexual abuse victim they have been persecuting and denying entitlements to for the past 13 years. I am going to test this in court, going to use the law to fuck up the judiciary if I possibly can and all the way through it make sure I have the UN watching how things unfold. I know I have a legal and moral case for them to answer, this is going to be fun (in a twisted sort of way – keeps the brain occupied. tehehehe (I’m a red tape whore and its a red tape war.)
I might do some research into what each citizen in New Zealand was worth in 1979 (taking into consideration we owned all the power companies, railways, telecommunications etc). I know for a fact each citizen now OWES $15,000 that the government has borrowed against them to pay for running our country – BECAUSE OF COURSE THE GREEDY DISGUSTING SUPER FKN RICH DON’T WANT TO!
I believe Kiwis trusted the people leading, our country, they gave Roger Douglas a knighthood for Gods sake. How could you give someone who has destroyed our culture, our peace and our Gods Own way of life a knighthood – these people in charge have gone mad. We also trusted that our media would be honest and our politicians and their advisers would be honest, honourable and have integrity – WE WERE WRONG.
After watching Campbell Live last night I then watched Poldark and the similarities in what the rich/powerful people looked like and the contempt they had for the poor was so similar to today I was horrified. Also the recent WWI bullshit just reminded me the lesson from all of that unnecessary death and destruction was DON’T TRUST THE PEOPLE IN CHARGE – THEY’RE IN IT FOR THEMSELVES AND THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT YOUR WELFARE OR YOUR LIFE!
I am going to chalk this stuff and write poetry about this epiphany.
Woke up this morning crying, not a good sign, my heart was breaking – ACC are taking months to get this meeting with Alan Doris sorted, let alone getting all the care reinstated, am barely keeping it together – hope nothing bad happens. I am sure they are doing this on purpose? I told them on the first day it was urgent, that was almost two months ago now – my poor psyche is struggling to cope. Bulimia back, trying to keep moving, keep focused on fighting back, stay alive. I wonder how any of these revolting people could understand what it is like to try and function when you are suicidal, when on a bad day you can be assaulted with thoughts of suicide for hours on end. Complex PTSD is a serious life-threatening disorder and I have to remember that, it is only my knowledge of psychology and how my disability operates that has kept me alive.
I have been harmed by those corrupt neo-liberals stopping all my care under ACC in 2009, I am going to sue those mother fkrs. I can prove they purposely caused me harm, that is illegal in a civilized society (did you know there is a UN document that sets out what a civilized society is – I should post it here).
Kia kaha all my friends.
