Submissions on local government election bill

Share |
Here is my submission to the NZ government on the election of politicians in local government. Submissions close 1st Feb 2011.

Why do you imagine that voters are not turning out? Might they appreciate that values are not collective? Might they realise that any 'collective wisdom' is merely extortion by those who purport to represent the majority? Frankly, I don't think many of them grasp it. Why should they - when they are given no real opportunity to participate. They are instead obliged to pay out rates unconditionally. Mind you at least local govt more closely approximates real or tangible services, as opposed to the federal budget. But there is still a great deal of collectivist waste involved.
Why do you think there is a great deal of contempt for politicians in the public domain? Might it reflect the incapacity and unwillingness of candidates to be accountable, to respect facts, to educate them...as opposed to telling them what they want to hear.
At least in local politics there is some notion of competition, but clearly that is not enough, when there is extortion when the election results are finalised. We live in hope for capable people, but the reality is that people are so repressed, they do not want capabilities which would require them to think. i.e. They want to pretend that some person is going to take care of them, and politicians as middlemen are elected to peddle the nonsense which allows them to retain that illusion. Now, do you imagine that educational standards are elevated by helping people delude themselves into thinking that others will care for them? No. They will never be better educated by this system than they are now...because they will only get more repressed, as our system of law, taxation, business gets more complicated. This complexity is not a question of logic...its a question of arbitrary imposition and compliance, which means they have no interest or prospect of understanding it. You invest millions in databases to benefit from technology, and yet you expect lay persons to understand your complicated, arbitrary rules, which defy logic.

The importance of local govt is peripheral to the main game which is the national govt laws which sanction its existence, and legitimatise the way it functions.

Japan Foreclosed Property 2015-2016 - Buy this 5th edition report!

Over the years, this ebook has been enhanced with additional research to offer a comprehensive appraisal of the Japanese foreclosed property market, as well as offering economic and industry analysis. The author travels to Japan regularly to keep abreast of the local market conditions, and has purchased several foreclosed properties, as well as bidding on others. Japan is one of the few markets offering high-yielding property investment opportunities. Contrary to the 'rural depopulation' scepticism, the urban centres are growing, and they have always been a magnet for expatriates in Asia. Japan is a place where expats, investors (big or small) can make highly profitable real estate investments. Japan is a large market, with a plethora of cheap properties up for tender by the courts. Few other Western nations offer such cheap property so close to major infrastructure. Japan is unique in this respect, and it offers such a different life experience, which also makes it special. There is a plethora of property is depopulating rural areas, however there are fortnightly tenders offering plenty of property in Japan's cities as well. I bought a dormitory 1hr from Tokyo for just $US30,000.
You can view foreclosed properties listed for as little as $US10,000 in Japan thanks to depopulation and a culture that is geared towards working for the state. I bought foreclosed properties in Japan and now I reveal all in our expanded 350+page report. The information you need to know, strategies to apply, where to get help, and the tools to use. We even help you avoid the tsunami and nuclear risks since I was a geologist/mining finance analyst in a past life.
