About

This blog is hopefully part of the change that this world needs as it moves necessarily to a sustainable and quite different future. But despite that we’re not out to destroy the old, we need its science after all, but we do imagine a world of substantial differences to our current one.

We are vegans (or trying), gardeners, scientists, programmers, poets, historians, Classicists, storytellers, budding linguists, into sustainable transportation whenever we possibly can and political mainly because we have to be. We are pro-business but anti-capitalist. We have been business owners, students, farmers, labourers and hospitality workers in our former lives. We have strong connections to Australia as well as to Aotearoa and ultimately our heritage takes us even further afield into this interconnected world. The content therefore will hopefully reflect the extent of these interests and experiences. We ultimately feel that we’re not going to change the world with dry statistics alone despite the truth that may be contained within.

So if you’re a NZ journalist who’s stopped by would you please stop claiming that you are both. If you’re in the NZ Greens you should be ashamed of your party and most especially the treacherous anti-feminists that you have amongst your women MPs.  We’re not too impressed with the Green washing James Shaw either. JFYI we are genuinely on the left rather than pretending to it via identity politics. This means that we are feminist orientated and reject racism in all its forms even those that have trendy status amongst the deluded. If you believe the fairy tales of inclusion you’ve been sold for running interference for the the funders of identity politics then you’re stupid as well as deluded. And if you use the hateful slur TERF in the comments please don’t let the door hit you on the way out. Finally if your name is Rhys and you like to cycle in women’s races, well Rhys please fuck off.
