Social Issues are shared concerns that legitimise social relations of our struggle. These social relations organise activities through legal and democratic representation. That renders the electoral and democratic processes fundamental to our survival.
Failing to materialise these social relations not only undermines legal representations but also continues to stagnate our struggle in a static state of deterioration.
In the last decade or so, no matter how much we have tried to make a decent living of the material, there hasn't been much opportunity for improvement. Those who own the means of survival have too much control that threatens the validity of the democratic electoral system in place.
For the private sector to effect political interference from outside of parliament is nothing more than the beast of 'majority rule', that some would go as far as naming it Fascism. But given autonomous and democratic participation, the social relations of our struggle would quantify the solid organisation of a prosperous economy,
However, while the economy delivered a linear and one-sided boom for the private sector, it wasn't enough to satisfy their material desires. It is beyond greed that the ruling class had to oversee the struggle of workers among their families endure Poverty, Homelessness and illness of epidemic proportion.
The nature of domination by manipulation of the means of survival is one thing, but harsh imposition to impoverish is another. So why bother about electoral systems and democracy when they don't mean anything in the real world?
Meantime, our PM and her government may expect a major shift from one of her coalition partner to ensure their political existence into the next election. It's like we have known the history of this party associated with controversies.
It's nothing new and the PM is all the know for the experience. Her passion for the issues she cares about is genuine. But her honest approach reduces her an easy target.
While Adern is genuine about the social issues, seasonal politicians are not. That sets her apart from career politicians among the usual run of the mill.
Housing for example is a major issue for the resolution of a social crisis but despite best intentions, the right wing private sector has more resources. We have seen a demonstration of these resources in action against CGT. The systemic coordination of external autonomous parts is the envy of any diverse organisation. They effectively put a stop to housing affordability and ensuring the housing crisis sustains a private sector boom. Just like they did the CGT.
Why would the price of Kiwibuild housing inflate at a time of social need spells desperation against the rule of the private sector. It is the manipulation of social issues and thus undermining democratic social relations for profit. And our social needs become a demand to take advantage of. They make a killing of the inflated housing market while we are stuck in a deteriorated state of homelessness.
And Kiwibuild falls outside the control of the Minister for Housing into the hands of the private sector. Any alternative help from MSD to the homeless is sunk in a bottomless bit of rents and mortgages. The so-called MSD assistance therefore targeting low-income families are redirected back to the rich landlords and capitalists. And we become nothing more than the means to redirect revenue to the rich. We are nothing more than units of production.
The issue for Marijuana according to a local radio would be a direct policy without a referendum. I agree. The referendum has opened up the issue to score political points more than unpretentious help for mental health sufferers and their wellbeing.
Well, we know that National and Act are heavy on punitive measures; the population of prison is made up largely of mental health patients. That's the research done and dusted; just formulate the policy to treat patients in a hospital and not lock them up in prison. Thus 'Prohibition' is about criminalising young addicts with potential health problems.
Legalisation on the other hand addresses the issue to restorative justice and social rehabilitation, not punishment. But it brings the problem into the open allowing access for treatments and for family support. It is placing the ambulance at the top of the hill.
However, we now know that the ruling class is more interested in punishment and imposing hardship. It's the ancient image of macho politics coming out for their own interests, but at the expense of the wellbeing of young persons who know no better. Nothing changes for that child under Prohibition except a direct future path to prison and making a career of it.
The fact that education is undergoing a shortage of teachers is a sign of development for social change. But unlike National that spent the whole term transferring wealth and resources to the private sector, only the privileged can afford an education.
Labour is more thorough in prompting the foundation and infrastructure of social developments for long-term stability. But coming up against the powerful private sector has found itself somewhat stuck. At the same time under a National government, the private sector is guaranteed a welfare system while workers among ordinary folks pay for it.
So without representatives in a working democracy, we have to find some other way to make ends meet. I don't blame anyone if making ends meet is joining a gang to make an underground income.
Since the private sector don't have respects for a system in place, we are just following the rule. I support anyone who is committing civil disobedience and protesting against this fascist rule for the sake of survival, but would not go as far as white terrorism do.
