More Prisons, more police, intimidation of beneficiaries equals a better NZ

Filed under: General — Ministry of Men's Affairs @ 7:22 pm Thu 2nd February 2017

Our government’s idea of changing people’s lives for the better: more prisons, more cops, uniformed guards intimidating beneficiaries at WINZ offices; yeah, nice.

English has set new targets for police and one of them is reducing family violence deaths. A laudable aim but if the government thinks that will be achieved by their discriminatory ‘protection’ order system, greater enforcement of unjust ‘protection’ orders, greater persecution of men and more white knighting to rescue women from domestic arguments in which they’re not getting their way, then the government had better think again. The current draconian, discriminatory system will only serve to increase division, fear, resentment, violence and domestic killings.

Meanwhile the social justice warriors are over-reacting to the Trump policies on visitors and refugees from certain countries, largely Muslims. That policy results from the many victims of Muslim terrorists in the US and is intended to protect US citizens from future Muslim terrorists. The policy will result in inconvenience to a number of innocent Muslims who might have planned to travel to the US. NZ’s domestic violence and sexual offence laws treat men with a much greater level of injustice in honour of alleged victims of domestic violence and sexual offences, and the effects of this injustice on falsely targeted, accused and convicted NZ men include imprisonment, life-long labels and discrimination, trashing of their families, damaging or trashing men’s relationships with their children and damaging numerous children’s lives through father deprivation. Trump’s order has nothing on the injustice and stupidity we practise every day towards innocent NZ men. And now English will provide many more police to enforce that injustice more effectively. Nice work.

Men commit suicide several times more often than people are killed through domestic violence. Wouldn’t a campaign and funding to improve the lives of NZ men and to reduce men’s suicide rate be a much more effective way of changing NZ for the better?


  1. If this government was honest and declared suicide as a gender issue then the ramifications would be disastrous for feminists. The truth would then be revealed regarding the intentions behind many policies being introduced into law that are distinctly designed to destroy the male of the species. To address the issue of why men are successful in killing themselves any quantitative and qualitatative research would reveal that the quality of life for many men in our society is well below that of women. Using a graph to follow this high disparity of male vs female suicide may show a correlation between the upsurge in male suicide and in feminist dogma that is so influential in every part of our culture. In times of war men will lay down their lives to help their comrade in battle. They are defined as heros and given medals. It is time that men are now awaken to the fact that a real war is being waged in NZ and comrades are being driven to suicide without the underlying issues being dealt with. Make you voice heard this year by ringing radio talk-back, writing to editors of print media and setting up pro-male blogs exposing the insidious pernicious doctrine called feminism.

  3. Bob – I recently found a clip about a book written by Niccolo Machiavelli 500 yrs ago. The book is posthumously titled “The Prince”. Its still the go-to guide for world leaders today. I see it inspires administrators and business people aswell. It can perhaps be seen in behaviours closer to our own lives. Recommended reading if you can grab a copy. I don’t have a copy yet myself, but the YouTube documentary about Machiavelli and the book is interesting. If I got it right, then I’d very roughly sum it up that “The END justifies the means” – “get deputies to do your dirty work” and of course THE “END” politicians hold dear is power and how to keep it.Under Machiavelli, FEAR is better than LOVE.
    So I’m forced to consider the behaviour of all those we consider corrupt, as being pure NORMAL human behaviour. Maybe we are the ones in La la land. We imagine that people should be what we are not. Sad indeed, but it looks like a very real possibility. Machiavelli portrays “REALITY” not “WHAT WE WISH WOULD BE REAL”.
    Politicians won’t be honest unless it helps them stay in power.

  4. As much as I agree with everything you said about prosecution of men, the announced police increase is to get a 98% action rate on burglaries. It’s election year and both parties talk law and order.

    Feminists need to start complaining about the sexist attitude the child support purports women can’t work or be independent. But need a man’s money to survive. We need to address all he double standards. Women try to pick and choose what’s good with equality leave what’s bad and try for more than 50% when it suits them.

  5. too tired (#4): Yes, one of the goals of all these extra police is the higher ‘action rate’ on burglaries, but increasing police involvement in families and in persecuting men under our discriminatory, unjust sexual ‘violence’ laws are also part of the announced goals; for example the extra police include ‘140 specialist officers (domestic violence, sexual violence, children)‘.

    More cops will do little to bring down burglary rates and much other crime. Demonstrating, and having laws that demonstrate, fairness, respect, justice and community welfare will do a lot more. Moving our culture away from ‘financial profit is the priority’ mentality will do a lot more. Having laws that protect workers and enable them to negotiate realistically with employers will do a lot more. Empowering parents to raise children with a realistic notion of discipline and consequences will do a lot more. The extra police for ‘family violence’ will in part be harassing and/or prosecuting more good parents for trying to raise socially responsible children, promoting the ‘rights’ and self-entitlement of children many of whom will carry these notions through to young adulthood in the beliefs that society owes them a living, it’s ok for them to steal what they want when they want, and society is so corrupt and lacking in values that no responsibility to others is deserved.

    Redeveloping a general attitude of respect and gratitude towards men as well as women, and providing a pathway for boys to see themselves as being able to become valued members of society, would do much more to reduce crime than flooding our communities with more police. Moving ever closer to a police state that enforces the power and privileges of the rich and the female won’t reduce crime; quite the reverse.

  6. Police obey and enforce the political objectives. They are not indepentent or trustworthy. They are anti family; anti-male, and not at all about equality of responsibility or consequences. If needs be they will brandish fire-arms and kill innocents. However they dress these things up in the media, they always target males one way or other.
