In the very same week our Captains of Industry complained about having such low confidence, the NZ stock market hit 9000…
…look at all that lack of confidence.
Who knew our mighty Titans of Commerce were the real snowflakes and all it took was fair wages, decent working conditions and a woman in charge to destroy their fortitude!
I take it they would like to go back to the good old days of their high confidence – you know when we had record homelessness, sky rocketing suicide & dirty politics.
Could we please start a give a little page to raise funds to buy every one of them 3 years worth of viagra for this sudden loss of rugged free market self-reliance?
Do they need a trigger free safe space with no references to universal suffrage and democratic majorities?
Shouldn’t we all be concerned that our mighty Entrepreneur class only have high confidence when they’re fucking over workers and people are living in cars?
I wonder if the state house tenants who were kicked out onto the streets over the meth hysteria had poise?
What about those in over crowded prisons, how’s their backbone?
The beneficiaries who have been trapped by corporate spies and cut off welfare for no reason, how’s their nerve?
The teachers, nurses, doctors, rest home carers, librarians and every other social sector worker at the cutting edge of underfunding – how was their morale?
I’m not interested in the confidence of the rich, it’s those whose day to day courage isn’t important enough for corporate media to report on that I care about.
