Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant, they too have their story.
Many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.
No less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.
Keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams; it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful.
--- Max Ehrmann, 1927

It is notable that ordinary citizens, whatever
their political views, do not trust politicians to act in the best
interests of New Zealanders.
A distrust that is richly deserved!
And vote by overwhelming majority, for any measures which restrict politicians power and increase democracy.
It is no accident that Switzerland is the most stable, prosperous and peaceful state on earth.
Compare Switzerland to so called "representative democracies". An oxymoron equal to, "intelligence agencies".
