    If it made that politics remains better and the people are honest with the people and state then survival will put a next step to strong it.

    a recurring theme

    Interestingly, we had exacly this discussion with some friends during the last days. I my opinion the general direction is sadly enought towards reducing liberty, with `liberal' being alrady a 4-letter word for quite a while.

    Hello Luka and welcome to the forum.
    Our last goverment was hell bent on reducing our liberty, although pretending otherwise. They tried to curtail our freedom of spech whenever they did not like the subject being discussed. They also introduced thought crime (see 1984 ) by introducing a law which stated that if someone thought you were saying something nasty you could be prosocuted whether there was intent or not.

    teddy, I think all governments aspire to have complete control, ours (NZ) are no different, I hate this PC crap and will not be part of it on or off line "a spade is a spade is a spade" is my motto type of thing, this is not to say one sets out to offend someone but if making a true statement offends, then so be it, tough lol

    Please add an semi-colon, comma, or other such grammatical mark ... 'cause I can't get the jist of your message.
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    @ J.H.C. I'm with you on hating things PC, we recently knocked back a really good picture (think comic) book because two of the characters were considered unPC: 1) was a depiction of an Australian aborigine (aparently you're not allowed to go there, writing about them, unless you are one, spare me, but I sort of get it) and the other was deemed unfit for publication because the female character had a D cup and no waist. I mean really ...

    David, We also have some weird jokers in Government, that tell you how to bring up your children
    Poly = “they are really just small adults and you must reason with them and not punish” Right! ever tried reasoning with a teenager and when they get to their early twenties they suddenly realise that they know everything until they come up against another teen who also knows it all then it becomes interesting
    Your comment re the indigenous is also applicable here and so I believe in the States.
