It’s been almost a century since your major contribution to NZ well-being, and many still see you as an inspiration for a left wing vision of community and solidarity. Unfortunately, we are having to fight the same old battles once more. The struggling poor are still being demonised and scapegoated, and we need more state housing. Jack, in the name of your selfless, visionary and productive generation, some are misappropriating, misnaming and distorting your vision into a platform for the children of middle-class property owners. The bankster-driven, housing market is a jealous god, and will not tolerate the active promotion of affordable rents, and safe and secure housing for the children of the poor. Fortunately there are those, like you, who are still willing to make a stand for a more fair, equal and community-based NZ.
