New Zealand’s incumbent Government led by one John Key is a criminal enterprise that needs be dismantled and destroyed. Police and intelligence agencies are out of control, illegally spying on citizens — and the Government’s response, rather than bring these criminals to justice, has been to sanction their unlawful activity by changing our laws to protect the criminals.
Tomorrow, the New Zealand Government will push through new laws to protect their GCSB which has been illegally spying on us for many years and here’s a selection of commentaries on this development, plus the final draft legislation, that I’ve posted to my Wall at Google-Plus, here:
NOTE TO GOVERNMENT:
“Decency, security, and liberty alike demand that government officials shall be subjected to the same rules of conduct that are commands to the citizen. In a government of laws, existence of the government will be imperiled if it fails to observe the law scrupulously. Our government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill, it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy. To declare that in the administration of the criminal law the end justifies the means — to declare that the government may commit crimes in order to secure the conviction of a private criminal — would bring terrible retribution.”
~ Justice Louis Brandeis | Olmstead et al v. United States (1928).
