KEVIN COSTER WINS AN EMMY & JULIA GILLARD & MURRAY McCULLY MIGHT BE INTERESTED IN A SEAT ON THE SECURITY COUCIL
Rewind for context: My view is that when food security and drinking water security is such a may-jah issue in the world ahead (NZ agreed to sell off up to 20% of our no.1 dairy products supply chain in principle, the last year, potentially to foreign investors in ‘the future’) and oil and gas around Islands are the next pit stop in planning the world ahead, it is a given that Australia and New Zealand should get a seat.
We also allowed a German buyer to purchase New Zealand’s no.1 fruit and veges supply chain distribution company, we delivered to German owners too over the last year. The reason given was that the company could supply to Eurozone nations better. So Security Council picks aside, the world outside of New Zealand is packing around our food supply chain companies anyway, lining themselves up for our (New Zealand’s) resources. The private sector does such company acquistions in foreign sales, at the same time new foreign policies collude together for wealthy citizens of the world, all seeking to position their own interests in attempts to control New Zealand as well.
Oil and gas are kinda up there too in a list of stuff to gun for, if you think of planning and world consumption trends, fifteen years down the track.
Back to The Security Council appointments: If The Security Council don’t give Julia and Murray a seat, then you get into the awful situation where you have remote control governance of the South Pacific froms The Security Council, and that breaches all of the laws in NZ and Australia and Islands of the South Pacific’s people, so it’s a high certainty that both Gillard and McCully will.
Back to Sercurity rhetoric and how they’re used to mask inequality’s prevalence: At the time of writing too, NZ is engaged in a battle of invasive law that gave powers from Washington (Joe Biden‘s name was thrown into the hat at the time) via the NZ government to invade New Zealand residents’ privacy illegally, breaching a true sense of security in NZ, that can be described as an incident that left a ‘bone-chilling effect’ on New Zealanders cultural-life, happiness, security and sense of Kiwi freedom. Taser guns were also being touted everywhere by our state agents in news headlines that went with such rhetoric from ‘security industries’ (it is Security Councils entertainment, basically!) gloat in news.
While these power games were being inflicted on citizens (or residents), meanwhile greed and inequality levels concerning many of NZ’s youth have escalated to all time highs, where other nations have released studies on an abusive culture, that marginalized certain people over others, the entire time this ‘securities’ rhetoric was being spun. It is fair to say, that 275,000 NZ youth currently living in economic poverty, were not given a sense of security.
The New Zealand worker was not given a true sense of ‘security’ either with unemployment levels currently at a 20 year high. Many children who are real NZ citizens, future prospects were being stripped, robbed, stolen in New Zealand at this time. Many foreign companies have been given preference over such citizens of NZ. This is kinda not cool, too.
The foreign companies have stolen NZ kids sense of security from them via economic preferencing from the government who let in these companies to do their job, of creating sustainable employment for NZ citizens, it’s just that Kiwis are often underpaid and the profits largely go offshore.
So what is security and a security council’s role then? is a question that must be asked by the citizens who actually have more say, than foreign councils. That’s the legal position of NZ’s citizenship status that must be observed at all times, regarding foreign policies intentions to take a slice of our beautiful country. Tracking citizen’s happiness results (economically especially) is where Security Councils should be more focused on perhaps if true security, really is the reason they say they exist for signed members.

Sports events used as excuses to up security industries products: We (NZ citizens) also endured the Rugby World Cup’s management mechancisms of the event, in a touting of Russian special security agents bought in to man a sports event. The Russian security firms agents were given high profiling in NZ, a year or so back. Our PM loved cracking Russian jokes at his state dinner parties at the time and flew to oil rich provinces of NZ with private Russian billionaires too as guests on hospitable state duties. If you believe the NZ papers, showing his ‘NZ is Russian friendly’ face – good on him - became his new ‘look’ we had to consider. Leaders might feel they have to show such a face when being hospitable to other nations richest citizens. It’s often a thankless task being diplomatic and polite, at the best of times.
However, the Russian referencing ”over-play” in conjunction with ‘security industries dominated speel’ was very much a moment that chilled culture via our government too, as an election lead in, in the last election where psychologically NZ was put into a ‘lock-down’ mode state (culturally) with a false flex of power by the current government who was hoping to get into office again at the time. Many Kiwis have remained psychologically in that lock down state since. It’s been damaging for the country of real citizens in my opinion.
Security talk speak was done in ‘jest’ bully boy fashion in areas (voting electorates) that were friendly to opposition parties, mainly. I was left with the one question at the time.
As security industries’ work on selling fear rhetoric (eg: more scary stories in the news are up-played more than normal in such games) to move products or increase state powers over private citizens in order to move security products sales for billionaire company owners, we must be wary of security industries rhetoric if a private citizen of NZ.
The one question I was left asking was: If ‘Security Industries’ arouse fear in citizens, in order to supply the product (‘security’) and are a ‘brake’ in peoples psyche’s freedoms as citizens are more conscious of the State’s presence when S.I is used, people tend to clam up more. Therefore should a PM hold the Security portfolio as well as being a cheerleader of growing an economy?
Economic growth is about inciting a national spirit of “be free, go for it, create,” the essence of a creative spirit. Security power-plays are about “freeze. No one is more powerful than the state.” Therefore economic growth and the S.I speel is often working against the good of a country’s growth. Older people also tend to favor ‘security’ rhetoric overplay more so than younger populations of a nation. Thus you can tend to get the wrong cultural blend in a culture for youth with S.I appearances in news.
We saw a record number of youth in NZ exit to Australia during such games (hence raising the point in the way I have) in a culture where most citizens felt powerless to curb the government’s ‘power-talk’ being so prevalent in news at the time, using ‘security’ as the reason. The result? our nest was gutted of our young minds potential. They flew elsewhere where they felt safer.
Also, as a Maori-Kiwi we mustn’t look too closely at how State Agents were used in the Tuhoe Maori tribe’s recent history either as yet another example of security methodologies and invasive spying techniques, that then action violent actions on innocents (NZ citizens, some children) are needing an overhaul in this country I write from.
Most breaches of citizens personal security come through internet tracking. NZ is a small country, so IT companies (this includes phone and mobile telephony spying of communications and information gathering) handing over private citizens communications that go down the wire, to government agencies using a ‘security’ reason. The truth is a lot of such techniques being used to information gather, just equates to spying from the wealthiest citizens of NZ, using politicians and government agencies to do that for their own minority ends and means. It is a topic that should be discussed before even daring to use a word “security”, when asking ‘what makes citizens feel secure and their overall wellbeing a lot happier,’ when being a society is governed right.
In reclaiming Kiwi culture and restoring it back to a less sinister style of culture, that Kiwis are known for in the world, we must look at security as a concept, the methods used in ‘intelligence stings’ on citizens and abuse of power by a few selfish people who effectively cramp a culture off by their stupidity and greed. We also must acknowledge that NZ is wired like a digital colony. Who gets fed the information that has been gathered from the ‘digital colony’ also could be involved in having prior knowledge of business competitors’ ideas.
This then leads to insider trading breaches of information sharing as well in the business world, all under a ‘security’ excuse that could quite possibly be abusing citizens or NZ residents human rights, economic interests and laws of NZ where politicians are elected first and foremost to protect actual New Zealand citizens and not foreign interests whims first. That’s an entire other kettle of fish to discuss.
One more thing: the sales of ‘security industry products’ (eg: billionaire Larry Ellison‘s story being one example of this industry) are huge in the world. Thus New Zealand politicians (and our ones working for the UN in New York too) must ensure that NZ is not a guinea pig colony, behind hidden doors, where citizens are being tracked, studied etc in our IT use, where the information beefs up the wider ‘security industries’ billionaires profits as a rule (or other industries like science or health-sciences too) without citizens knowing, agreeing to it happening or giving their consent. NZ citizens never signed up to do that in games of ‘security’ testing.
Now back to The Security Council hopes of Australia and New Zealand: Australia’s Phillip Coorey boasts that Australia is well situated. Herald Sun kinda likes Julia’s “charm offensive” style. It’s true that Americans at the time of writing are Aussie crazy in terms of their local hood star picks (California research). Americans are also Kiwi crazy too, yet most Americans do not yet know the difference between Kiwis and Australians in their consciousness as a people yet. As Kiwis, it doesn’t phase us too much, still check out our Hobbit movies though and our sports stars and athletes.
In Hollywood News: At last night’s Emmys, part-time actor and oil mopper upper company owner (apparently), Kevin Costner, was awarded an Emmy for his cameo appearance in Hatfields & McCoys for playing William “Devil Anse” Hatfield, beating Bill Paxton and Woody Harrelson to the gong in the mini-series Western. H&M was History’s first scripted drama. As an actor, still got it aye. Costner also created music with Modern West to add to John Debney‘s soundtrack.
