$11,000 sleepouts snapped up for offices

The far larger influence on the differences you describe between then and now are the political-economic ideologies that hold sway. In that era, we had Keyensian economics, with an egalitarian ideology and framework to reflect it. This has now been replaced by bullsh!t neoliberalism which is all about wealth transfer up the dirty hierarchy, and f*ck all who aren't part of the trans-national corporate elite. Immigration and multiculturalism (with all of their drawbacks *and* benefits) are not really to blame.  (Jan 29, 2014 | post #6)

9/11 was not an american govt plot.

You asked which human rights had been violated and where. Whether you agree with its implementation or not; whether it was messy beforehand or not, it is still a breach of a human right as designated by the original UN convention - the right to privacy.  (Sep 16, 2013 | post #41)

9/11 was not an american govt plot.

2 human rights undermined by recent legislation passed by the current national gov.: Right to privacy (GCSB Bill) - and they freely admitted they were doing it before the legislation too, to add insult to injury Right to a fair trial (3-Strikes internet law) 'guilty 'til proven innocent'  (Sep 16, 2013 | post #39)

Hey nz!you can have your maoris back

The inherent problem in this analogy is your 'same conditions' presupposition, which is patently false.  (Sep 9, 2013 | post #174)

Twisting The Treaty

Firstly, there are a number of authors. Secondly, only two of them have nearly-relevant qualifications: in law, and history. The two that have post-graduate qualifications see one of them being in completely unrelated proximal science; and the other being awarded honorary doctorates (i.e. no substantive or measurable contribution) from two also-ran UK institutions. The rest have nothing more than undergraduate degrees: higher education is such in this country that the person bringing you wine at a restaurant or making your bed at a hotel (i.e. nobodies in the workings and understanding of society) has one of these. The guy that has a law degree has made so many ridiculous statements, you would be a crackpot not to think there's something wrong with him (just google it, that's all you need to do). The rest of them - if they'd studied perhaps sociology, or anthropology, or something along these lines, perhaps then they'd be something more than nobodies making crackpot statements. So that leaves the only claim for validity the fact that one historian was involved. Ask any from the historical discipline, or the others mentioned if it is reasonable to base any understanding on the opinion of one person.  (Sep 4, 2013 | post #33)
