> One of our latest NZ deportees was 16, I read.

ooh. 15 I read. Not even of age to be consented for AstraZenica vaccine in New Zealand.


> You still have our Brendan Tarrant. Grew up near here. I saved The Great Replacement but having grasped the argument, as it were........

Huh. Never heard of him. Really? We got one and didn't deport him for Australia to pay the cost of his imprisonment?

I hear it's only $100,000 NZD per year to keep someone in prison. So anyone earning over $100,000 per year should be fair game, then. I reckon. The government workers earning over $100,000. How can we afford NOT to imprison them??


> Given a choice between Dunedin and UQ I'd go with Dunedin. Brisbane is too bloody hot in summer.

Yes. But you don't study over the summer. You study through winter.

There is a lot to like about Dunedin. There is so much potential. I like the brisk and snappy cold. There's nothing much better than curling up with a good book someplace warm and cosy when it's snappy cold outside. That can make for a very productive environment in which to study. If you get to study something you are genuinely interested in. It is like the environment conspires to help you stay focused.

But there's an elite white thing, in Dunedin. Partly because it's so isolated, I guess. Historically. It's only relatively recently that things have become more inter-connected with the internet and flights etc.

There's a real sort of old ruling class aspect about Dunedin. A who's who about it. I'm sure they think they are working class just doing there best to punch above their weight and feeling afraid people will feel like... Looking behind the curtain and seeing how... Little there is behind the scenes. The show.

But the fact of it is they rule with an iron fist. And they aren't able to...

Face up to things that are hard.

When facing up to things that are hard is a requisite first step in the process of figuring out how to make things better.

They won't acknowledge me. They won't let me. I'm not prepared to spend the rest of my life sucking up their *rs*s 'yessir nosir anything you say sir' waiting for them to... Curl over and drop dead. Before things might be allowed to get better (yeah right).

There was something... All the way back when I was end of my undergrad / honors. About a whole generation of professors and ruling elite... About how there wasn't any jobs for anybody else until they dropped dead. And now I look around... And a few people who were peers at the time... Decided to stick around and suck up, I guess. And now they are them. And everybody is just waiting for them to drop dead.

It's not a nice or good system.

But there are people who have invested years of sucking it up and waiting...

For their turn.

They invested in...

It being their turn.

So that's a problem.
