    Now if we could just get one of those visuals for what power is pulling the strings of John Key and what their aims are for the future of New Zealand and New Zealanders; don’t forget his history spans Singapore, London, America, Australia and the currency market of New Zealand.

    There are similar cycles of denial which are funded and reinforced by corporate interests and government bodies with respect to:

    Peak Oil.

    Population overshoot.

    The collapse of industrial civilisation.

    We are clearly extremely close to the turning point. The economic upheaval that is just around the corner will ‘wipe out’ a lot of denialists quite soon. And the ones who get through that bottleneck will face the collapse of the industrial food system.

    The good thing about denial is that it will reduce the human population, especially in large cities.

    I’m sure there will be plenty of people who will deny that population die-off is possible, let alone imminent.

      You really are a piece of vermin aren’t you AFKTT?
      Here we are, poised on the brink of the worst economic crisis the world has ever faced (according to the governor of the Bank of England) and you and your death-loving eco-faschist chums are drooling at the thought of a massive death toll.

      Why don’t you actually do something useful with your life and make it a better place, instead of masturbating over climate porn all day?

    Jum: Good idea.

    Can you suggest appropriate open-source network-analysis software which the The Standard would be comfortable to host ?
