Why I’m not surprised by the Court of Appeal Kim Dotcom decision

By   /  July 5, 2018  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  22 Comments

We have two enormous powers hurtling towards each other at great speed now at the Supreme Court. On one side, Dotcom’s fierce will, tenacity and wealth up against the mass surveillance state and American corporate geopolitical interests.

For everyone debating the pros and cons of tasers in light of the latest killing of a man by NZ Police

By   /  July 5, 2018  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  17 Comments

A death in custody, a place and environment where the Police have total dominance should send a shudder down the spine of anyone, we are being misled into a debate about tasers – without any clear explanation of where the injury that killed this man, that debate is a purposeful misdirection.

Hey Sleepy Hobbits – welcome to waking up to another day where Kim Dotcom’s Moment of Truth was right about mass surveillance lies – tell me, how does it feel?

This was a moment when the true nature of the mass surveillance state was shown and proven to us, that Kiwi’s refused to believe is a legacy you collectively will need to explain to your children in the big brother future.

The ignorance of MPs criticising Air NZs impossible burger is impossibly terrifying

By   /  July 4, 2018  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  16 Comments

Because of the speed of climate change, huge ideas with radical vision are required. That a NZ First and National MP can’t see the need should surprise no one because they themselves are like the Dairy and Meat Industries – dinosaurs that don’t know they are extinct yet.

With John gone, we can stop pretending RNZ are some sort of bastion of Left wing thought, they are an elite bubble that promotes the interests of the elites while claiming to be a public service – like so much that pretends to be a public service in this country.
