There was a comment made to John Campbell on one of his interviews in Ngaruawahia in which the term Holistic was used.
I have been thinking al;ong those same lines. Jacinda and Labour seem to be wanting to serve the country holistically to a degree and this can only be a good thing. I know people will think that this is mumbo jumbo but if you are aiming to have every NZ citizen given all the neccessities in life that makes them warm,fed, healthy,clothed, educated and in long term warm dry housing where small close knit communities are fostered this goes a long way to enabling an egalitarian society where everyone feels equal. I see no wrong in aspiring to such a goal. Missed out the most important. Employment. Jobs equal self worth. Good or bad, we are defined by our occupational standing in life. High self esteem engenders self pride which equates to being a better person in all aspects of life. As Bill is wont to say “throwing money at problems is not the way to solve things”. So he thinks that people can solve their poverty problems without financial support but he is more than happy for as much money as possible to be funnelled off to the rich who don’t actually need it therefore creating inequality. Not good for anyone.
“As Bill is wont to say “throwing money at problems is not the way to solve things”. ”
Yeah well, anyone who (unlike Bill) actually has a job that requires you to solve things, knows that there are certain categories of problems where throwing money at them is exactly the right thing to do. Especially if you need to ameliorate problems quickly while putting a more strategic, durable solution together in the background.
That little cliché about not throwing money at things is just propaganda. It’s meant to sound like down-home wisdom and get the heads nodding, while really you are just a greedy f*ck who has no intention of solving the problem and every intention of holding on to your cash.
Lets do this
helping our children to be more creative and learn better
is not spending more on national standards.
I think that showing more respect for teachers and allowing them
to use their creativity would be a good start.
Spending on eliminating poverty is the must do
and will make NZ a better place.
2. Dot, Couldn’t agree more .
Yes, come on members and supporters,
make a donation, however small.
Send support by Facebook,
get involved campaigning , door knocking, chatting.
Discuss policies, and what they mean for our way of life,
talk of Jacinda’s values .. “The economy is only as good as what it does for the people”
Talk of helping poor children instead of millionaires.
Talk of “Hope”, and “Pride” in NZ.
Talk of giving a future back to the next generation.
Talk of being “Guardians” as opposed to “Owners.
On election day I will be full of hope. Thank you Greens. Thank you Labour, Andrew, and you marvellous person, Jacinda. Our next P.M.
So fun being in this campaign.
What is your point Adam????
