Let’s make no mistake about the situation we face. Under the cover of the Covid crisis, the government is pushing ahead with reforms that will fundamentally change our society from an open democracy based on the equality of all, to a tribal apartheid system that allocates resources and grants rights according to a person's heritage and the colour of their skin.
Here is our second Three Waters flyer-2 to urge the public to take action to ensure ratepayers have a say over whether their community water services and assets are transferred to the Government's iwi-controlled water authorities.
As it stands the Three Waters proposal is irrational from every perspective, but one. The only rational reason for this deeply flawed upheaval is to use it as a smokescreen to pass ownership and control of water to Maori tribal interests. The Government has no mandate for that course of action – it is completely unacceptable.
This brief analysis exposes the extent to which the He Puapua agenda is undermining all of the four pillars of our democracy. With Maori now over-presented in Parliament, and Labour’s Maori Caucus gaining control of its Executive wing, their radical influence in Cabinet is now permeating throughout the government service, the judiciary, and even the media.
New Zealand is at a crossroads. If Kiwis don’t proactively back a colour-blind future - united by what we have in common instead of divided by our differences - then that small group of radical extremists, who already have their hands on the levers of power, will replace democracy with tribal rule.
It seems astonishing that the Ministry of Education is allowing academics who subscribe to the radical view that science has been used as a weapon of colonisation and a tool for the suppression of Maori knowledge to drive curriculum development.
