Screwing Over NZ’s Future for Immediate Emotional Gains

Just as Angela Merkel wrecked Germany for future generations on her watch as Chancellor by flooding her country with ideological aliens, Jacinda Ardern and her government are embarking on the process of screwing over New Zealand’s future in an attempt to look merciful after the Christchurch shootings.

Our leaders should not be exploiting a one-off tragedy on our shores by clamping down on the natural rights of New Zealand citizens, like free speech. They should instead be promoting a long-term vision of keeping our liberties firmly intact and being careful that immigrants who come here hold views that are deeply consonant with those liberties.

One of the greatest virtues of excellent political leadership is the ability of a leader to have a long-range view into a country’s future and act for its improvement. Individual liberty is the standard of value; the measuring stick. Sometimes the beginnings of improvement require short-term pain, but if a leader’s reasoning is sound and just, long-term gain is the result.

Thomas Jefferson is a great example of such a leader, considering it was he who wrote the Declaration of Independence which severed the thirteen British Colonies of America from England, igniting the bloody War of Independence. The result of winning that war was the beginning of the great experiment of self-governance. This noble experiment was Jefferson’s far-seeing intention.

When Jefferson became America’s third president, his attitude toward freedom of expression was plainly stated in his inaugural speech:

"If there be any among us who would wish to dissolve this Union, or to change its republican form, let them stand undisturbed as monuments of the safety with which error of opinion may be tolerated, where reason is left free to combat it." [Thomas Jefferson 1801]

Abraham Lincoln was also another far-seeing leader. Not wanting to break the Union which his Founding Fathers had created (Jefferson died when Lincoln was seventeen years of age), he presided over the outbreak of a terrible civil war in order to halt new territories extending slavery further into the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean. Lincoln’s famous “House Divided Speech” which he made at the Republican Convention of 1858, two years before the Civil War broke out, shows just how complicated and divisive the whole issue had become for the nation:

"A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half-slave and half-free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved—I do not expect the house to fall—but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing,or all the other.” [Abraham Lincoln 1858]

The slave state of South Carolina was the first to withdraw from the Union and fired the first cannons of war upon Fort Sumter in 1860. Three years later in January of 1863, Lincoln managed to enact the Emancipation Proclamation declaring all the black slaves of ‘the states in rebellion’ to be free. Enormous war powers constitutionally given to the President enabled him to take his opportunity for this action. But the congressional vote for the 13th Amendment hung on procuring just two more votes and Lincoln’s words to his cabinet to get those votes shows just how morally far-reaching his vision was:

"The abolition of slavery by constitutional provision settles the fate, for all coming time, not only of the millions now in bondage, but of unborn millions to come — a measure of such importance that those two votes must be procured. I leave it to you to determine how it shall be done; but remember I am President of the United States, clothed with immense power, and I expect you to procure those votes.” [Abraham Lincoln 1853]

In stark contrast to these iconic leaders of yore, the Ardern administration here in New Zealand is using immediate emotional gains to ruin the future for millions of yet unborn Kiwis, who will not be able to speak their minds openly on any issue whatsoever, but instead will have to over-censor themselves lest they be slapped with a “hate speech” charge.

This reduces citizens into nothing more than subjects; slaves who can be taxed, bossed around and fined, or imprisoned for expressing the “wrong” ideas. Welcome to Jacinda’s Brave New World.

If Ardern cannot enact her policies of increasing the refugee quota and implementing the insidious UN Global Migration Compact without cracking down on her own citizens’ civil liberties – especially freedom of expression – it is clear that she is on a political path which is deeply hostile to New Zealand’s way of life.

Ardern’s reasoning is far from sound and just; it is purely emotional, womanish, showy and despotic.

Our prime minister ought to take a leaf out of Jefferson’s book and let all dissenting New Zealanders “stand undisturbed as monuments of the safety with which error of opinion may be tolerated, where reason is left free to combat it.” But will she use reason and persuasion to combat verbal dissent among her citizens, or only repair to criminalising peaceful, outspoken Kiwis?

Whether she likes it or not, the answer to this question will be Jacinda Ardern’s legacy.


Isabel Paterson

Bruno -- I'd be curious to hear about the nature of the liberal narrative derived from Isabel Paterson. This concept is new to me.

Bruno

Unfathomable that she could be elected.

She wasn't directly elected Bruno. She's there by a quirk of the Mixed Member Proportional representation electoral system. She was shocked to get the job because after nine years in opposition her party had no plan on how exactly to fuck everything up.

Templates for becoming California or for a new rebirth

Jacinda is grotesque inside and out. Unfathomable that she could be elected.

NZ needs to embrace right nationalism and abandon American-derived notions of "libertaranism" and "liberalism", which are both equalitarian and globalist oriented. Fraser Anning as model.

I'd say Salvini as model, but I am assuming New Zealand and Australia are somewhat closely related and have more in common.

New Zealand is a European colony. The farthest outpost of the Civilization Classical, Christian, European.

Follow the American "melting pot" at your own peril.
Italy says "no, thanks!", Israel says "no, thanks!", Poland, Hungary, Austria, Japan, S. Korea,...

New Zealand is intrinsically bi-national, given the presence of the aborigenes. Similar to the Southern US. They will never accept you as brothers and sisters, just as African-Americans will never accept their so called white counterparts.

Import further divisions, such as in the Southern USA hispanics are being imported, and they will form a coalition unbeatable by sheer number.

See the last Georgia elections as template. Probably the last Republican victory in history. California docet. California teaches.

"Succesful" multi-ethnic societies look like Singapore. Quote from the very undemocratic man in charge:
"We have to lock up people, without trial, whether they are communists, whether they are language chauvinists, whether they are religious extremists. If you don't do that, the country would be in ruins."

Without a nation we are not equipped to survive (qua Man), as Aristotle clearly stated twenty five hundred years ago. We are vulnerable little individuals, vulnerable to foreign tribes, to our own government, to conspiracy, to economic exploitation, to invasion, and ultimately to the strong man who will have to clean up the mess left by the pretty little words we all blathered about tolerance and liberalism and freedom.

The reality is that people can complain all they want about the Eiffel Tower being now totally in lockdown, but that is not only "normal" but necessary. That is what is necessary in a "melting pot". America won't be erecting fences, she'll get straight to the tearing down of all its monuments. It has already started.

To make any Classical, Christian, European nation great again:
1) end all third world immigration
2) raise tariffs and rebuild industry
3) rebuild families around common Classical, Christian, European values

To Make Objectivism Great Again:
1) the political philosophy must be nation-compatible and city-state compatible
2) the ideal is not the actual, take into consideration the proper realistic view of human nature accordingly
3) stop lying about history with the very fake "liberal" narrative derived from Isabel Paterson

Philosophy

Jacinda Ardern is no different than Angela Merkel. Both desperately and rather-virtuously turn to the world of philosophy for answers, but find only illiberal beliefs and solutions which make the various situations worse.

Ideas rule the world, from New Zealand to Germany. But ours is still pretty much a Dark Age with many bad ideas all around.

"Live Video" is Fake

Jon Letendre's picture

Your government banned the shooter's "live video" because it was very sloppily pre-produced and is an obvious fake.

Cringe!

Lindsay Perigo's picture

The guy is stupid and evil. Stupid: doesn't know the difference between "it's" and "its." Evil: equates "heart" with "hijab," symbol of oppression and Islamo-mindlessness generally. Nothing innocent about that. This is a Jihadi.

Challenge to all of them, including Islamappeasing Obleftivists: come on here and debate!! I guarantee to censor nothing, except incitements to violence, which are their specialty.

Oh dear...

this is the utterly retarded anti-mentality of what we’re up against.

Another idiot comes on my site and says this in response to my comment to "Sparrow Eyes”:

Terrie Berthold 8/4/2019 11:53:58 pm
And you accuse thinking people and all the firemen at 9/11 of being conspiracy theorists. Har har.. Projection at it's best eh Olivia. You project your cynicism and paranoia. David Seymour. Of course you like this imbecile. You're so transparent and cold. You expected Our PM to be cold like you when she went live and expressed herself as a strong human being with a heart. Courageous and the greatest leader ever.

It’s almost enough to make one want to disable all comments.

This post of mine...

seems to be almost going viral in NZ. (Excuse the split infinitive.)

One nut, probably one of Bandler’s ilk, has been saying it’s an “inside job” - which keeps popping up.

He urged me to watch a Youtube clip by one Max Igan, which I have to say is just pathetic, some Ozzie conspiracy theorist, who even takes the time to say that he wonders what “Bibi Netanyahu was doing that day.” As if Mossad are responsible.

Jacinda and her ilk are evil beyond words exploiting this tragedy for all its worth with the clamp down on gun laws and free speech laws, exactly as Brenton Tarrant predicted. But to say that “our government wants us dead - get real!” is too far, even for me.

Here is my response to this idiot:

FFS!

Sparrow Eyes... this is the only time I’m letting one of your anonymous posts through - put your real name on my site, with a real email address, or fuck off. It’s called being a man.

Do you also think that 9/11 was an inside job too? Suddenly everyone became an expert on how burning aviation fuel couldn’t make “steel melt and buildings fall like that...” etc etc. As if we’ve all seen buildings the size of the Twin Towers come down so regularly that there is practically an “app for that.”

This tragedy has been used, censored and exploited ad nauseam, but that is a far cry from saying our government sacrificed 50 innocent people to set in motion their political agenda.

“Your government wants to kill you! When will you get real?!” As Igan says... “Go to Yemen folks and see what’s really going on!”

Well, two young men from the Al Noor Mosque in Christchurch were radicalised and did go to Yemen, where they were droned by the U.S military... good riddance to bad rubbish.

But this guy’s video on The Video may be considered thinking for oneself, but it’s conspiratorial thinking, not real thinking with reality as a reference point. He even says “I wonder where Bibi Netanyahu was that day?” Meaning what... it was Mossad? As one Muslim leader here claimed publicly?

I have no respect for our government and they will exploit whatever they can - they’re disgusting in that regard. But they did not do this, THEY’RE USING IT! That’s how the world works.

We already know

Her answer is "no!" She is evil. She is about to get what she has wanted all along: the criminalisation of criticism of Islam. And then, of the communism she is promoting separately. "Islamo-Marxism" anyone? Supported by Soros and Obleftivists, btw!
