Gareth Morgan: What the hell has happened to him?
Submitted by Mark Hubbard on Tue, 2012-01-17 22:15
Kiwibank is to buy Gareth Morgan Investments, including the Gareth Morgan KiwiSaver Scheme.
Can anyone date accurately when Morgan moved to full communism? He obviously has completely forsaken the free market model.
Quoting him: "Kiwibank is an iconic Kiwi business that we can all identify with."
Only if you believe in State ownership of assets, and the planned economy, Gareth.
Seething, as usual, when I watch the Statist train wreck him and his firm have become. I hope his investors who understand that State involvement in the market is to the long term detriment of our freedom, first, and then our prosperity, choose to show him this by exercising their ability to switch funds to a private sector provider.
Gareth, with this, your Big Kahuna, climate change advocacy, and the last article I saw questioning fishing in the Southern Ocean, I'm wondering when you'll be announcing your candidacy for the Green Party in the 2014 election? Is there such an affliction as a Jesus complex?
Too mad to write anything more.
... Cooled down a little. My comment to NBR sums up my thoughts better:
It's not about tall poppy syndrome. Some of us, free men, understand that our long term freedom, and our long term prosperity, turns on a free market and limited government. Jesus Morgan just grew the government. The commission of every one of his investors - many of whom wouldn't agree with the Nanny State - now goes to grow the welfare state and the growing tax take needed to contain the violence of it, plus the violence of the coercive Big Brother State to extract it.
That's what he's sold out. My freedom, again.
