“Marxists get up early in the morning to further their cause. We must get up even earlier to defend our freedom.”
– British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, 1978
New Zealand is at a crossroads. This is the moment that will define the next generation. Will our future embrace freedom and liberty, or are we staring down the barrel of increasing Sate control.
Some say we are already on a totalitarian path – our personal freedoms taken away by ever more powerful politicians and organs of the State.
Defined by the Oxford Dictionary as a system of government that is centralised, dictatorial and requires complete subservience to the State, ‘totalitarianism’ certainly describes the actions of Jacinda Ardern’s Government since mid-March.

In fact, the only groups to openly flout the lockdown rules and seek on-going publicity for their law breaking, were tribal activists running illegal blockades to promote their separatist agenda. Instead of enforcing the law, the Government turned a blind eye, empowering others claiming race-based mandates to follow suit…..
