You Want Dictatorship? Watch this Ministry


You Want Dictatorship? Watch this Ministry

“If New Zealanders want proof that this Labour Government wants total control over our children and are prepared to sink to any level to achieve it then they only need to watch the Castro-style bullying the Ministry of Education are presently applying to Orauta School at present.” This was from Peter Osborne, the Libertarianz Spokesman to Deregulate Education today.

Mr Osborne’s comments are in reaction to the Ministry of Education’s order to prosecute management and parents of Orauta School, who are remaining open in defiance of Mallards thuggery. Chris Eve, the ministry’s Northland Manager said the ministry can’t guarantee the quality of education the children are receiving.

“Horse shit!" says an irate Osborne. "This has nothing to do with quality and everything to do with control. The ministry are fully aware that if this school manage to fight them off then other schools will follow. Chris Eve knows that if that happened it would be the beginning of the end for the State's quest to dumb us all into compliant little citizens. And good riddance.”

Osborne asks, “Is Mr Eve’s existence so insignificant that he has to stick his nose into other peoples business? This situation should be a mutual agreement between the management of Orauta School and parents. It is not the business of the state to forcefully remove the rights of parents to decide how they may educate their own children. By taking such action the government are telling us all that they own our children. If the government are allowed to get away with this then be prepared for things to get much nastier in all walks of life in the future.”

“And what of all the other political parties? Not one has stood up to condemn this disgraceful episode. The reason is simple. They are politicians and as such they all crave the power to control the rest of us.”

Osborne concludes, “When New Zealanders wake up and realise that they have been hoodwinked they might want to vote Libertarianz. Once we have thrown every last bureaucratic Nazi on the street, we will close down the Ministry of Mind Control for good. Our constitution will ensure that future governments are unable to force their narrow ideology on the rest of us ever again. I will happily resign, as my job will no longer exist. Everyone will then be free to live their lives as they see fit without worrying about the burden that the state is prone to place on their pockets and their lives."
