I have, for quite some time, tried to pin a label on exactly where Jacinda Ardern’s ideology lies.
It is not an easy thing to do. Ardern has, variously, described herself as a social democrat, a progressive, a republican and a feminist.
When asked by reporters to comment on the 2021 Budget, Ardern stated: “I have always described myself as a Democratic Socialist.”
Democratic Socialist. Isn’t that a bit of a contradiction and maybe even an oxymoron?
Presiding over a government that has gone out of its way to decimate democracy by promoting the politics of division, there is nothing democratic in these actions!
We certainly know well her time as president of the International Union of Socialist Youth and how she remained thus for 15 months after election to Parliament.
So, is she a SOCIALIST?
Or, is she, in fact, a COMMUNITARIAN?
In ideological terms, Communitarianism is a philosophy that emphasizes the connection between the individual and the community. Its overriding philosophy is based upon the belief that a person’s social identity and personality are largely molded by community relationship.
That sounds a lot like TRIBALISM to me?
More socialist doctrine was absorbed when in 2006, Ardern became a Senior Policy Advisor in an 80-person policy unit of British prime minister Tony Blair. Apparently, Tony Blair was seen by Ardern as a kind of “spiritual uncle.”
Blair was the instigator of a “New Labourism” and designed, alongside American President Bill Clinton, the so called “third way.”
The third way is a political perspective that seeks to modify left-wing ideas towards the economic and political realities of globalisation.
So, in there are we seeing the direction and also key words that will further shape and mold Ardern’s thinking. Key words such as globalisation.
Globalisation refers to the increasing interdependence of world economies as a result of the growing scale of cross-border trade of commodities and services.
The changes we are currently experiencing in the world today are akin to the shifting of the earth’s tectonic plates, thus delivering an “earthquake of massive proportions” on the political and social elements of our world.
There are many highly placed individuals and organisations today who are openly calling for a “great reset” of the world order.
Thus, creating a NEW WORLD ORDER.
This terminology has been adopted by the World Economic Forum (WEF), founded by Klaus Schwab.
Jacinda Ardern is an alumni of The Forum of Young Global Leaders, an initiative of the World Economic Forum.
Schwab published a book titled Covid-19: The Great Reset.
While the book was written in 2020, six months into the pandemic, it forecast a post-pandemic world where nations work more closely to solve problems facing mankind.
The WEF, who annually, hosts a meeting in Davos, Switzerland, has always attracted attention and considerable suspicion from, not only, global conspiracy theorists, but those of us who are feeling some deep-seated concerns regarding our ever-decreasing levels of democracy.
It’s easy to dismiss such concern. But the fact is, these leaders of business, media, education and government are in highly placed positions of authority and control.
They are the influencers, leaders and shapers of commerce, education and media and most importantly government.
They command immense power, influence and wealth.
The fact is, this group does exist, and those in it do think about ways to create a world that is quite different—more along the lines of a one-world political entity.
More worryingly, many of them are seeking to bring major change to the way the world is governed!
A word employed liberally is TRANSNATIONAL and is used to describe the world many in the WEF would like to see emerge in the not-too-distant future.
A transnational world that would have fewer boundaries, less nationalism and a SINGULAR GOVERNMENTAL STRUCTURE is, in their mind, the path to equality, harmony and comradeship.
They see nation-states and boundaries as obstacles that need to be removed. In their view, national governments are relics of a bygone era needing to be swept away.
Transnationalism is not a novel concept. Not long after the end of World War II we saw the creation of the United Nations. Similarly, the World Health Organization, the World Bank and the International Court of Justice and many other global bodies have been formed to promote equality, unity, peace and stability. It’s just we had not noticed a transnational reset taking place and it has been relentlessly moving forward.
The WEF/Great Reset discuss the “social contract” between the individual and the state and will argue that, in so many instances, the state has failed to secure equality, equity and freedom for all peoples and races. They prosecute a case that existing governments have failed to deliver on their promises.
Where this failure is happening in actuality, where separatism is promoted, the politics of division have become the norm and where destabilising fiscal decisions are made, this becomes the trigger point for discontent and uncertainty that ultimately results in galvanising opposition and unrest.
A clear example of fiscal instability in New Zealand is our mounting national debt and record-breaking inflation.
This is the fertile ground NEW WORLD ORDER pursue when advancing the need for a new social contract.
Today we are seeing New Zealand being actively divided politically, culturally and economically. The COVID pandemic has resulted in a massive increase in the divide between the “Haves” and the “Have Nots,” further enhancing social division.
With our government erroneously and inappropriately remolding our founding document as a Partnership, has simply amplified sentiments of injustice and has allowed them to taken root. Well-watered and lovingly tended by Ardern’s government.
Teaching a skewed history curriculum and reshaping students views through the lenses of negative racial viewpoints is already underway. If enough young people of the next generation can be persuaded that the true history of New Zealand is not worth protecting, a significant goal is accomplished by New World Order devotees.
Don’t think it can’t happen! Does this sound impossible? It will never happen, you say?
Then consider how quickly New Zealand and indeed the world began accepting a pandemic lockdown in March 2020.
Within a matter of days schools closed, all but essential businesses closed, people lost their jobs, sporting events stopped, parks were out of bounds and people were working from home on Zoom.
All that with NO vote taken.
Discussion ended as quickly as it began, the Public Interest Journalism Fund began “proving its worth” and New Zealanders, by the thousands, were prevented from returning to the country of their birth.
Remember in August 2021 we moved to a “short sharp” lockdown. For Aucklanders, short and sharp meant 107 days!
Control by the insistence of fear quickly became Ardern’s weapon.
The new normal was the new normal.
But it doesn’t begin and end with the Covid Pandemic, most definitely not!
Concepts of injustice and prejudice towards Maori being advocated in education, governance, both local and national, and the media are slowly but surely taking our country to the brink of civil disorder.
When governments are clearly undemocratic and lean towards an authoritarian persona, the once-dominant groups in society are prone to losing political status and power and as such, when there is no obvious political solution, it is fertile ground for a state of Anocracy to evolve.
Anocracy is a form of government where there is still a semblance of democracy but it embraces authoritarian characteristics. Anocracy blends democratic with autocratic features. The disenfranchised and excluded groups in anocracies, those that are dominated by a government that promotes ethnic or religious favouritism, tend to be the genesis of social unrest and turmoil. (See HERE)
At that point it would then be so much easier for a government to discard the exceptional and the extraordinary ingredients that make up our social fabric in New Zealand and instead embrace a different narrative as part of a global order promising liberty, justice and freedom for all to live and act as they determine—within, of course, their newly approved and applied boundaries.
Even respected political blogger, David Farrar, recently contemplated the possibility of civil war in NZ brought about by Ardern’s assault on democracy and the promotion of race based policies.
He posted; The most important single factor that is the most predictive of civil war is when one or more major parties in a country’s political system doesn’t organise around left-right political values but around identity – race, religion or ethnicity.
Don’t you think the way Ardern’s government, its Maori caucus and tribal leaders are surging ahead with their co-governance agenda, is pushing New Zealand close to that point of, if not actual civil war, then certainly civil disruption?
In New Zealand there is a significant degree of apathy and almost total lack of comprehension and knowledge around the subversion of democracy and promotion of Maori exclusivity that is very, very scary.
The overarching concern is that, based on ethnicity, a minority section of the population is being given an absolute right to control the rest of the population without, it appears, any limits on their power or any route for appeal.
Thankfully, more and more New Zealanders are waking up to the fact that our democracy is under attack from within.
There is a very small group of those of part-Maori descent, Maori tribal elite, presumably swollen with self-importance because a small part of their cultural inheritance that they are clamouring for co-governance of this country. This co-governance agenda is gathering speed and, dare I say it, credibility at an alarming rate.
Witness the examples of co-governance, “working exceptionally well” now being trotted out. Those examples are in fact joint management in action. More distorting of facts that this government is expert at.
These so-called leaders having been emboldened and empowered, not just by Ardern, we must be aware of the fact that it is the whole labour government along with their strong Maori caucus, who are responsible for the social damage and the erosion of democracy in New Zealand.
The weapon they are using is the twisting of the meaning of the Treaty of Waitangi, whose simple provisions made it plain that all New Zealanders, at the time of the signing of the Treaty, now became subjects of the Crown, with equal rights and protection.
Ardern and her government’s separatist agenda combined with their inept fiscal management, are bringing this country to its knees!
Are we speaking out loudly, are we protecting our democracy, our rights to one person, one vote and do this government actually respect and represent the majority of New Zealanders?
Given the credibility and confidence bestowed by Ardern, scarily, some Maori leaders are now even moving forward from co-governance and are actually now talking full governance!
So, tell me Prime Minister, what follows that?
What lies in store for New Zealand in the future?
A Sitiveni Rabuku, Fiji style ousting of the non-Maori from NZ!!
Because, once in motion, there is no functional, workable or reasonable end to an Ethno-Nationalism agenda such as the one you and your government are currently imposing on our country.
What have you, Prime Minister, unleashed, either wittingly or unwittingly, on this country?
Could it be wittingly; A New World Order?
To create a NEW WORLD ORDER, first you must DESTROY the existing one!
