Moral Decline

This morning's Radio Left wing News headlines describe a country in severe moral decline.

Auckland motorists warned of hikoi delays

When you can't get your own way you disrupt the lawful activities of ordinary people who need to use the motorways to earn a living.

Protest group threatens more harbour bridge action

When you can't get your own way you disrupt the lawful activities of ordinary people who need to use the motorways to earn a living. You lie to the police when you say your gang won't force their way onto the bridge. And then you threaten to do it all again.

Not RNZ but elsewhere on the week-end, I see over 75% of the people who voted in a survey think the bloke who stole $7 million from Westpac is a good guy.

A large section of the populace sees nothing wrong when a jilted pork promoter breaks into his ex employer's place of business with the intention of seriously damaging his lawfully operated business.

I'll bet all of them are under the age of 35 and have only Clark and Cullen's example as recent and formative barometers of honesty.

Adolf,

Ditto, my sentiments a few minutes earlier.

I note none of the MSM have such a line - just playing up to the criminal ethos.

Remind us again where you stood on the truckies strike?

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Danyl, remind me again what was illegal about the truckies' strike?

The problem isn't just the disregard for honesty and the law, it's the disregard for other people's rights and property which your examples highlight.

This is just the natural and inevitable consequence of the last 40 years in NZ.
Danyl, I was against the truckies strike because it caused significant inconvenience, but they did not break the law.
The invasion of the bridge was disgraceful and the sight of so many children being egged on by their parents was terrible.
We have reached the point here where there is no respect for the rule of law by many.
I blame John Banks amongst others.
The general population no longer see the police as protectors. They are now viewed by many as bullies who prey on the motoring public, couple that with the cop rape scandal, the perceived cover ups and refusal to prosecute anybody from labour and we have reached the point where many see authority as something to be laughed at.
Oh.. John banks? He is the fucking clown who merged traffic and police.
Todays pointless protest will also contain many children who should be at school. Yesterdays protest was a north shore middle class protest. Those law breaking kids will be at school today. Todays lawfully protesting children are made up mainly from the one group in this country that needs to be in school the most.
Both lots of kids have been let down very badly by their parents.

That's all we have to do away with

Once that's gone we can start behaving like a community again with values and respect. Until then we will continue to fall into the abyss.

My opinion.

Talk about biting the hand that feeds you!!!
Well consider this. The Pork industry has spent a not inconsiderable sum of money propping up the state broadcaster and Mike King via its advertising expenditure. In one moment of commercial suicide the state broadcaster has demolished all the work the Pork Board has done in the last few years to grow its share of the meat market.
This behavoir brings into question the ability of that broadcasters management. At a time when they have shed nearly 100 staff and are in serious meltdown themselves they have exacted retribution by attacking their paying customer. Now spare me the editorial independence garbage, this is a blatant attempt at commercial sabotage.
This morning (Saturday) John Key was running around wanting facts about the Veitch affair, which commercially made nil or little difference to TVNZ (and was an emplyment issue and not a political one),so we should now expect him to question TVNZ very harshly about sabotaging their paying customers.
Indeed I would be expecting that he now replaces the Board of that organization with people who are not consumed with hatred and influenced by fringe groups wanting their agenda publicized.
What about it Mr Key?
