Iconical one might almost say,

Then there is Work & Income New Zealand.
Yes, there it sits that institutionalised insult to the wondrous human capacity to show compassion and care for our fellow beings. This is what should be driving us, our motivation to grow as a conscious species, not money or even worse that insult to us all “free markets”.
Standing ovation! Well said...
What is this? I’m not sure I like it.
I understand why you might not recognise this. It is called empathy, something that used to flourish in this country, but has now been largely eradicated in the wild, by the efforts of micromanagers and powerful sociopaths.

I always think of them as a Christchurch band, this is where they formed and played their hearts out all over, and always nearby the old Butler bus.

The up ya Echelon...
I would've liked to be a fly on the wall at the meeting of the 'five eyes' countries Attorney Generals in Auckland recently (though judging by their inherent levels of paranoia, I'm sure it would've been 'bug-free' on all levels).
Last week it was revealed that the US AG, Eric Holder, sanctioned surveillance of a Fox journalist's emails.
The US is running scared from its own people.
