Something to read. Something to ponder. Something to understand. Something to believe. Something to accept. Something to act on.

Here you go my brothers.

Something to read. Something to ponder. Something to understand. Something to believe. Something to accept. Something to act on.

We think we’ve come a long way but we don’t know the half of it.

Kia kaha tatou te tautoko i a tatou wahine.

    Thanks Hone.

  2. That’s quite a frightening list, Hone. I recall sf/fantasy author, Harlan Ellison speaking at a Wellington sf convention on just this issue. He gave examples such as the elevator one.

    It was quite a consciousness-raising talk he gave.

    Things have changed over decades in NZ. US based TV and films have brought a degrading of our NZ culture. We have been persuaded to accept a dog eat dog existence, supported by myths and lies promulgated from outside NZ but taken up by profit seekers from a wider platform.

    As a youngster many decades ago, we never locked doors in the house even when we went out. Cars sat on the street unlocked and apart from avoiding the mass exodus from pubs shortly after 6pm kids were generally safe on the streets.

    All that has changed and now we live like stateside city apartment dwellers, stranger to community ownership. Many without a roof over their heads are in a community that doesn’t care for people.

    The insidious influence of corporate driven fear and misinformation facilitates community values breakdown. A common ethic of decency towards others has been quashed by commercial interests which comes creeping into all corners of our societal fabric with devastating effect.

    Our biggest criminals go untouched leaving an example of ripping off being OK and taking what you want without regards to what that does to others.
