  • Hard News: 60,

    Happy b'day Russell. Being a last-wave Gen X cusper, I've still got plenty of time to get things done. Including the rollback of a ladder-pulling Social Darwinist system.

  • Hard News: Closing off a complaint,

    It’s been noticeably becoming more churnalistic since commercial news manager R*ch*rd S*th*rl*nd was appointed RNZ’s head of news. (Name partly asterisked to mask the guilty party.)

    Hopefully the NZBC v2.0 (oops, ANZPM) will sort people like him out.

    Just a wee update to this thread.
    Carl has a bad day.

    "We need to beef up the police!"

    [Police raid Carl's home & seize his guns & ammo.]

    "NO! Not like that!"

  • Legal Beagle: Steelmanning hate speech reform,

    I've made my submission. One area that definitely needs looking at is dark money, and the astroturfers and concentrated media monopolies that it sponsors. I've read that such monopolies are just as detrimental to freedom of speech as the Great Firewall of China or the Putin regime in Russia.

  • Access: The Driverless Road Ahead,

    Speaking of art, I used the tightest COVID levels to revisit a long-neglected hobby of mine. It's online for the world to see at DeviantArt and Renderosity:

  • Hard News: Housing, hope and ideology, in reply to ,

    Newshub, nice to see some healthy anger. “All those wankers you see in the paper that are 32 years old and ‘I bought my first house at 22 and now I own 12 houses’ have just been lucky enough to be in this 10-year period where [house prices have soared] and they just keep re-leveraging. Well, those guys will be fucked, which is good…

    I agree, owning more than one home is greedy. It’s okay to be angry about that sort of thing.

    Mark Todd is rightly our local version of Nick Hanauer, who's also posted on Newsroom:

    I forgot to mention: there's freedom of speech, and then there's freedumb of speech.

    The “Great Replacement” theory as bel;ieved by the Christchurch terrorist is tantamount to volume 2 of the “Elders of Zion"…
