Modern society is under attack - mostly from within.
The monster on our doorstep is slowly destroying the defences we have traditionally relied on to save us from ourselves.
Like the worst cancers, it eats away at our foundations until it is discovered in forms that will not respond to treatment - and by then sadly, it is usually too late.
I am talking about the phenomenon known as “ The critical race theory “ which is currently cutting a swath through the United States virtually unchallenged.
Moreover, we are beginning to see the same destructive power subtly undermining the foundations of our own society, aided and abetted, even promoted by our government, local authorities and main stream media - ironically the three most important components who normally defend us against such damnable intrusion.
If this rogue serial killer is not stopped within this administration’s current term, we face the prospects of a weakened western civilisation that will provide easy pickings for those communist states that seek global domination.
We will literally hand over our sovereignty on a plate.
So let’s retrace our steps a little to examine the progress this Cancer has made towards achieving its goals.
Currently in many of the western world democracies, especially those currently governed by socialist parties (including our own), we are able to follow the trend where this challenge to our way of life is actually encouraged rather than being resisted.
Here in “Godzone”, we note all forms of central and local government introducing laws that will divide our nation along racial lines. And no amount of protest will have any affect on the imposition of these draconian decrees because the so called “ free “ press absconds from its responsibility to decry these undemocratic moves - knowingly distorting the facts about the social needs that are the result of this “social imbalance “.
We are told that the only way we can restore minority groups to positions in society that is rightfully theirs is for them to be given access to state support systems that will not be available to the majority of citizens.
It is called for want of a better name - affirmative action.
No matter that this sort of “hand out” is doomed to fail just like it has almost every time when introduced in areas where a specific need has been identified in the past.
As a community worker for over 40 years in these low decile communities on the East Coast of New Zealand, l know the best ways to achieve positive outcomes in these areas.
In most cases, the help required has little to do with the need for a separate community approach - more that support (funding) is advanced in a way that forces accountability.
In other words, like the rest of us, Maori need protection from themselves.
There is no question in my mind, based on my own experience, that Maori are equally qualified in intelligence and capability to Pakeha but unfortunately, their tribal affiliations tend to frustrate the opportunities for achieving the objectives they so desperately need.
There is simply too much petty jealousy that inhibits cooperation amongst Iwi groups on projects that could benefit all.
You will find that systems that work in Maoridom and Pakeha societies all have the one common denominator - those that are allocated State or shareholder funds in order to expand successful family business operations are all held accountable for their decision making and management. Blame for failure to make it work needs to be sheeted home to the directors of operations irrespective of ancestry or social standing in the community. Critical race theory ignores this important ingredient and instead exacerbates the destructive atmosphere that exists where the law is not enforced.
No business venture can survive if it seen to be enjoying exclusive access to unlimited resources that make things happen or if unacceptable behaviour goes unpunished simply because it is committed by those of different colour. Sooner or later the shareholders (ratepayers, fellow Kiwis) recognise the harm this policy is doing to our multi cultural society and will say enough with this rubbish - let’s return to the system that demanded accountability.
My fear is that we will reach that point in our history only when this “life threatening” experiment has damaged our society beyond repair.
But maybe there is still time. If so, the urgency can not be overstated.
We need to act now!
