All kudos to Simon O’Connor in calling out NZ’s Parliament on the proverbial ‘king’s new clothes’. Who else is speaking out? Nobody that I’ve noticed except those dubbed by the sleeping masses as ‘conspiracy theorists’. So we’ve had two months of virtual house arrest followed by the inability to shop without leaving contact details (over a plague with a 0.2% death rate). I’m all for the precautionary principle however this overkill has destroyed many lives. Note, Police can now enter your home without a search warrant. You are losing your democratic rights, one law at a time.
There’s a petition below if you’re awake & you’d like to sign it EWR
SIGN THE PETITION:
In New Zealand, civil liberties have been suspended and may not return. The new police powers during the Covid-19 alert level 4 lockdown reveals authorities have the power to set up roadblocks and random checkpoints. However, they also have the power to bust into your house “enter, remain and inspect” any household or office that is suspected of housing an unsanctioned gathering. The new guidance, recently released by the police, revealed that under alert level 4 police may do “anything reasonably necessary, including the use of force, to compel, enforce, or ensure compliance” of the lockdown measures.
Journalists and political partisans have expressed the mistaken presumption that government is a “balancing force” against the excess powers of corporations. This video explains that most excess power of corporations is provided and granted by government and that government seeks partnership with corporations and shares in the profits. This “public-private partnership” is so advanced that the public interest is no longer a primary concern of government. Government is now a for-profit operation serving itself at the expense of the public interest.
