Here I start with how a local area authority have been manipulated as an instrument of hate crime against me personally, much to the delight of faceless haters, who guffaw in glee at the distress they cause without repercussions.
It's time to address politics of the emerging social credit snitch society and the future of government. It's not the kind of regime I consent to suffer.
A dog control van came hurtling past. It swerved dangerously close to the curb and screeched to a halt straddling the cycle path and on the yellow lines that indicate no parking. The curb there protrudes into the road by a designated crossing where Lucy was waiting...
I've trained Lucy since she was a puppy so she remains completely unphased. She trusts me, like I trust her. True to her nature and breeding, she is keen, eager and ready to handle my next command and she also knows what not to do without my explicit instruction. I am confident she is safe and under effective control when she is with me.
Here I restage a scene which culminated in truculent abuse of authority by a pedantic petty official on a power trip.
Beligerently the dog warden leaps from her vehicle shouting
That dog needs to be on a lead.
Actually the law just says that a dog must be under effective control.
Many of our neighbours who have seen us out and about would agree that she really is an attentive and well trained dog.
Consequently a lead would serve no purpose, so I said that she doesn't
need to be on any lead.
This triggers the dog warden into a rage. She shouts I would be the one she reprimanded previously, although I have no recollection of seeing her ever before. She announced she was going to issue an infringement, so I called her a fascist as I slipped the dog chain over Lucy's head and took my disappointed companion straight home.
On our walks I already have my hands full: My regular bag, a ball thrower (that we had been using the park), a bag of her pooh (yes, I do tidy them up but don't want to put that in my main bag incase it leaks). I also had a bag of crushed drinks cans. These I collect on my walks, hoping to make ends meet by selling them for scrap metal and it helps keep the environment tidy. I only put her on a lead when I think it will actually be safer than voice command. What Lucy's breed does need is an intellectual challenge, appreciation for her contribution and exercise that even an Olympic champion would struggle to give her on a leash.
I suspect this dog warden, must have been the one who had phoned me a few weeks earlier. I missed the call and had to ring back as they didn't leave any message. It was extremely annoying to waste most of my credit listening to their jingles and repetitive prerecording about their web site and to stay on the line. In fact I might have sworn a few times at the mindless machine and it certainly didn't put me in a good frame of mind.
When I finally did get put through to the right person I learned they had received a 'complaint' of dog nuisance, she wouldn't say from whom, but I already knew it would be from a cyber bully who had been threatening to do so out of sheer malice. Said troll doesn't even live in my area, but had used footage from my social media to work out where I live. Now he was abusing authorities to harass me. For me, this kind of harassment has been going on for many years already. It has done me a lot of harm, so I told them they were participating in ongoing malevolent hate crimes. For that I had received a first warning and subsequent to this latest confrontation I now got a notice demanding I pay $300 infringement penalty. I assume I've lost my eligibility as responsible dog owner and with that too they will penalise me financially.
It's high time I fight back, but I doubt putting in humble submissions to the abusive authority is going to achieve anything other than exacerbate their ire, so that just leaves me with non compliance!
You may think our elected governments run the country. Not so. Not only are all our political parties committing us to one UN mandate after the other, while dismissing objections claiming they are not mandatory, but even the local mayors that we elect are furtively conniving at our expense with global institutions and associations that simply bypass national government policies anyway.
This is not a conspiracy theory. Currently 2030 cimate agenda is top priority and the key word is "sustainability" as they mold our cityscapes to fit their dystopian schemes for our future, regardless what we the people who actually live here might elect.
This is just a sample of the myriad international organisations interfering in our local administration. Rosa Korie has been exposing the subversion for decades and her book "Behind The Green Mask" is well worth reading. I suggest you google her name for details yourself, if you wanna know more. Meanwhile the ICLEI.org website seems to be exceptionally slow, so I linked the Wikipedia page about them instead.
For decades dismissed as
conspiracy theory regular people are gradually waking up to Agenda 21.
It is an ambitious plan for completion during this 21st century and aims to manage and regulate all resources on our planet.
That includes human resources, all life forms in fact, but it is being rolled-out unilaterally by self appointed financial "stake holders", while we, the bulk of humanity, have not had any say in that.
To understand the relevance, let's fast forward to the future:
Agenda 21 has multiple milestones, but for this discussion about local authorities, the most relevant is agenda 2050:
The demise of the nation state.
Instead, a global network of locally administrated cities is envisaged.
These would be production hubs of the
international global corporate elites, that are linked by belt and road transport routes which primarily serve commercial purpose: Not for commuting, nor for recreational travel.
You will likely be renting a pod in a "dense vibrant urban community" near your place of work and conforming to zero carbon austerity. You will have few posessions and your diet will consist of GMO crap supplemented with synthetic and insect protein. Going out into the country, hunting and fishing may well be off limits while even just land to grow your own vegetables could be unavailable to you.
Our current national democracy, serves only as a transitory distraction. It's purpose is to usher in a brave new world of global multicultural miasma. Check for your self: Not a single one of our current politicians opposes this globalist vision, yet we stand to loose our identity, society and culture as we surrender land, mineral rights, means of production and the collective intellectual property of all humanity to the sinister Davos Man elites.
Cities will be administrated according to
best international practice as laid down by international NGO.
Already for many years local area authorities have been using our rates and taxes to pay for foreign NGO consultancy services.
The NGOs are directed by UN policies, created by financial stakeholders.
They are not serving our needs but their own Marxist agenda of
equitable redistributions on a global scale. It's not hard to understand that this likely results in 3rd world poverty world wide.
Forced to compete commercially with zero protection from unfair outside competition, coupled with the legacy of crippling national debts to the privately owned World Banking Cartel, the bulk of humanity is going to be reduced to indigent indentured servitude to corporate hegemony.
Christchurch, for instance was selected to take part in the Rockefeller "resilient cities" program. The Rockefellers don't live here. Why should these foreign billionaire oil barrons be directing our cityscape? By whom, and on what authority were we nominated to become their guinea pig?
Food for thought? - Time for action!
With just a few loads of gravel and a parking ticket machine, the sites of buildings that came down in the 2011 quake were converted into privately owned public car parking. Wealthy 'investors' from elsewhere who suffered nothing in the quakes snapped up the land at rock bottom price and will see it's value sky-rocket as they leech off the rebuild that's going on all around their gravel pit parking lots.
Besides insurance payouts, the government has poured billions into Earthquake relief, but a lot of that went to profiteering slumlords who live mostly up in Auckland. It also went to bailing out insurance companies and paying for underinsured municipal repairs.
Meanwhile, for reasons that aren't clear to me, my own buildings insurance turned out to be invalid that year. I got not one cent of assistance. Apparently I'm not even eligible for a property assesment by EQC, yet the local council remain intransigent that I continue paying rates that include an EQC levy, as had my property never been affected!
I did try, but was unable to sell at the rateable value that they are claiming while struggling to fund essential repairs. They all treat my home as worthless until it comes to me paying. It's a blatant collusion to rip-off the defenseless victims of a natural disaster. To once again financially squeeze me out of my own home for the benefit of profiteering and bureaucracy that is devoid of accountability on all fronts.
Allegedly a vibrant colorful city center is planned, but astronomical rates make it expensive to rent or run a business there. Hefty parking fees make it unattractive to spend much time in town. Public transport and cycling may sound good, but try carrying your groceries and purchases home and likely you will need to add the cost of delivery.
Out in the suburbs larger family homes that had gardens for your kids to play in, have been demolished. The rebuild seems to consist of tiny boxes with gardens too small for so much as an inflatable toddler's paddling pool. The lucky ones might get a parking space allocated.
After the 2011 quakes, traffic calming measures like speed bumps took priority over fixing the broken roads and pot holes. My alloy wheels were damaged hitting a gaping pothole in the dark one night and the catalytic converter was cracked on a poorly constructed speed bump. New bulges in the curb at junctions prevent cars filtering left and right thus creating unprecedented traffic jams and queues. Instead of fixing our water mains they spent a fortune putting in meters all over town, even though water was never a scarce commodity.
A few years ago I once paid my rates in cash. It was a reduced amount because I applied for and was granted my back dated low income rates rebate. I remember a sly grin on the face of the lady at the counter. She was getting my change from over the other side of the office and called out "do you need a receipt?" Having been in the queue for ages while they were helping an elderly lady fill in her rebate form, I had responded that it probably wouldn't be necessary, but on my way back to the car I did think I ought to go back in and ask for it afterall, but then shrugged it off as I had a lot more to do that morning and didn't fancy standing in the queue again.
On my next rates invoice I was charged again although they had evidently processed my rebate application that I submitted at the same time. Unreasonably they had even applied the penalty to the full amount rather than what was owing after deducting said rebate. Their reply predictably uncompromising as they alleged there was no overpayment recorded of "that exact amount" in the week. It smacked of deliberate ignorance, so I suspect it had been investigated by the very same person who pocketed my money with that sly expression on her face.
For them, the difference between right and wrong is not based on morals, but on what they can get away with. Rather than asking for the receipt, now I wish I had recorded it... and see that look change when they know they've been caught red handed, but even then who is going to hold them to account?
Before I finish and while I know the issue isn't resolved, I just want to go back to dog control:
Lucy was on heat and while I would only take her out where there were no other dogs a male bullmastiff must have smelt her and turned up on my driveway. He was a perfectly nice dog, but people walking past were frightened and shouted abuse at me. They didn't realize he wasn't mine.
The civilized thing to do, would be just to phone the owner and let them know where their dog was, or even take it straight back myself, but the registration dog id tags don't have the owner's details. I had no choice but to phone dog control. They came and took him away, but wouldn't say whose it was so when he turned up the next night I had to phone them again. The owners drove past several times calling his name but I was too slow to catch them. The council said they don't come after dark so I was kept awake all night by a very sad bullmastiff rattling the gate and crying. In the morning they finally phoned the owners who came round to collect him. The owner luckily did tell me where they live and the next time he turned up I was able to return him myself. I was a bit grumpy with her, but she explained that kids across the road kept letting him out and said she was sorry.
The point is that this whole system is to give city council total control, deprive us of ability to sort things out amicably ourselves and enable their wardens to impose fines. My opinion is that dog owners need to ditch council dog id tags and use one with our own details.
Out walking Lucy for her early morning walk, we've seen several dead cats by the side of the road recently, but there are no regulations about them running free unsupervised. What is all this dog licensing nonsense for anyway? Life shouldn't need a license from these pen pushers, should it? Who the Hell do they think they are?
Unless we act, come 2050, I anticipate a dystopian totalitarian administration by unelected petty bureaucrats.
Corruption and nepotism will be rife, yet each and every one on their personal power trip will just appear to be doing their job, like cogs in a heartless machine that is accountable to nobody.
Is this the
Brave New World, you want for your tamariki?
Democracy! Voting for a mayor is too vague. I think we need to split the role into key areas so we can then vote for each official responsible for decision and policies they promiss us. If they do intend to participate in foreign special interest consultancy they will need to declare that and can't shrug off responsibility for the results.
I am interested in starting or joining a local action group for coordinated non-compliance and looking to identify a Mayor candidate who does have OUR interests at heart.
