Maoritanga has long been a fundamental part of NZ’s identity and tourist appeal, but the Maorification of everything without recognition of the other cultures in the country is gross.

Minority culture rules OK

By Paul Mulvaney

We are in a period of inverse acculturation, where the majority is required to adopt the cultural values and norms of a minority. We see versions of inverse acculturation in many middle-eastern countries where tribalism and “ethnic cleansing” is the norm. Wira Gardiner is also on record as supporting ethnic cleansing! 

Sharia law and other means of acculturating the majority are common in many Muslim countries.

  • Health is to be centralised under one entity which will be subject to another entity which will have the right of veto – the Maori Health Authority.  I ask… where is the representation and respect for all in what is an increasingly multicultural society?
  • Education. All Polytechs are to be centralised under one central body (I bet it will have a board of equal numbers of Maori and “others”), plus the revised history curriculum for schools which will emphasise Maori tribal histories (oral and unreliable) to the exclusion of our colonial history (verboten, ja?)
  • Welfare: Child, Youth and Family to be operated solely by Maori, headed by a racist on record, Wira Gardiner.
  • Justice: a separate Maori justice system, supported by Law Commission plans to operate all legal activities according to Te Ao Maori and tikanga.

Government coercion – Maori immersion

Jacinda ministers Willie Jackson and Nanaia Mahuta, the prime drivers of separatism with objectives of wealth and privileges for select elites, not ordinary Maori.

If you aspire to work in any career which is operated or funded to any degree by our New Zealand government, (health, education, justice, welfare) you are now required to be capable in tikanga, to undergo instruction in Te Reo, commit to this government’s version of the Treaty of Waitangi and accept that the Treaty constitutes a legal and enforceable “partnership”. 

However, the Treaty is merely a convention in our Constitution and is NOT a legal document. Furthermore if you read the only true, valid Treaty – Te Tiriti o Waitangi 1840 – there are no stated principles; partnership is not mentioned, and equal rights are guaranteed to all New Zealanders.

Local democracy first

The principle of subsidiarity should be paramount in a democracy…. let things be done at a local level first, and if needed, then a higher authority can be call to advise and assist, not take over.  

Maori have a right to be at the table and their voices heard. So often we have ignored their presence… The Hunn report in 1956 is a good example of bulldozing migration to assist a cheap labour force for our local capitalist enterprises by refusing to permit Iwi to build homes on commonly owned ancestral lands. Or in Northland, legislating that where land is idle, it should be confiscated by the state for good use. 

Tell that to the Queen and her vast highland estates that are left idle….now with the excuse that they are wilderness areas and thus of benefit to the well-being of the nation….

Three Waters’ is a classic example of a central government takeover – an outrageous attempted handover of $ billions of our assets that us ratepayers (and several generations of our ancestors) have contributed. 

What does Ngai Tahu do with the millions we taxpayers have provided?

I understand that most New Zealanders with some Maori ‘ancestorship’ already have ‘shares’ in such organisations as Ngāi Tahu all ultimately derived from Government handouts to this group e.g. “As a result of the Ngāi Tahu Claims Settlement Act 1998, Ngāi Tahu received a settlement sum of $170 million. It also subsequently involved fisheries and aquaculture assets valued at $71 million. In 2013, Ngāi Tahu received a relativity payment of $68 million from the New Zealand Government under their settlement agreement in the 1990s. By the end of 2013, Ngāi Tahu had assets of around $1 billion…” (Wikipedia-reference). 

One has to ask how Ngāi Tahu and other such tribes throughout NZ use their ‘dividends’ each year to ensure all their peoples are no longer living in poverty, with the hope that there will be concomitant improvements in the symptoms of dysfunction such as: health status, illicit drug and alcohol consumption, unemployment, violence against females and children, crime and incarceration rates, and the actions of gangs.

The sad state of politics and the inexperience of MPs

Personality politics, political identity especially ethnicity, dominate politics, not policies designed for the majority.

MMP means 50% of our MPs are NOT elected by their communities but are appointed by their political party, as well as New Zealand being governed with only about 40% public support. 

There are limitations on practical experience in the Labour government (including the Greens). Few if any have business experience and there is only one ex-farmer in Damien O’Connor. 

It is bereft of skills and experience in economic, managerial and governance competencies.

The need for a response

We need to push back, like we have before on this sorry situation and the flag debacle against this current attempt to change the face of who we are.
