Feature: Gutted In Guatemala

- The corporate web around this story is tangled. I could unweave it for you, but trust me, the outcome is predictable; faceless U.S trans-nationals running rampant in a developing country, exploiting human rights and now hiding from responsibility. See... Feature: Fighting Monsters In Guatemala [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0206/S00126.htm


Fortuin Speech: Racial Harmony & National Identity

- Don’t ever apologize for your heritage… celebrate it and find ways where it can enrich your new homeland. Never allow anybody to strip you of your sense of selfworth and somebodyness because you are a migrant or a refugee. Dignity is what you carry in your inner being, not a label others bestow upon you or strip from you. See… Xenophobia or a Lack of National Identity [1]

[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0206/S00128.htm


Opinion: Teaching In Trouble

- ‘Teach your children well’, the lyrics of the 1960s song went. But in 2002 we’re having trouble. Trouble we have not seen in public education since perhaps the controversy which surrounded the moral issues of the late 1970s, the release of the Johnson Report and the teaching of sex education. See... Teach Your Children Well [1]

SPCS Promoting Unhealthy Attitude To Sex

- “Consensual legal sex is not dirty, and the sooner the state gets out of the way of adults filming themselves acting legally, and letting adults decide for themselves and their children what they can see, the better!” declared Libertarianz Spokesman on Free Speech Scott Wilson. See... Anti-Sex Bullies Want State To Replace Parents [1] MORE: - SPCS - “Baise-Moi”, Porn And French Children


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/PO0206/S00122.htm


Katya Rivas

- Nobody can see My face unless they are on the path of faith. It seems contradictory: if you do not have faith, you cannot see Me and if you do not see Me, your faith will not grow. Why do I speak to you? See... Katya Rivas: Without Faith, You Cannot See Me [1]

[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/PA0206/S00375.htm


Franks Cries Foul Over Post Piece

- Presenting one academic's opinion on ACT's Crime and Justice policy as fact is extraordinarily biased journalism, ACT Justice Spokesman MP Stephen Franks said today.
