I think Census 2023 will be flop that will throw up odd results.
Firstly, their now structural dependence on online over the Community Aunty knocking on your door and passively aggressively ensuring you fill out the form ensures a lower turn out.
They have sent the forms out with names attached if they know the address you are living at, but ‘To the occupier’ everywhere else and seeing as no one will be knocking on your door if you haven’t filled it out, many anti-Government feeling people will simply ignore it and won’t answer.
Some Gender Critical Feminists are bristling they are being asked their gender rather than sex and I can imagine they will either despoil the forms or won’t answer in protest.
There will be some sovereign citizen somewhere who will be prosecuted for misleading information.
Strong Māori and Pacific links built during the Vaccination outreach will ensure their communities get more attention from door knocking and those from the Trans community and woke wanting to make identity politics statements will all swamp the gender and orientation questions with pride.
What we will end up with is an enormous jump in Pacifica, Māori and binary activists being represented with a huge slump amongst the working white poor, Gender Critical Feminists, Crystal Karens, Qanon, antiVaxxers and those just sick of the State in their grills.
Ultimately the civic good will within the wider community is spent and tribal dislikes and egregious grudges are the new social currency.
I hope Jedi are a religion.
