Hobson’s Pledge and the Taxpayer’s Union have been on a rampage recently against the inevitable declaration that Maori will be prioritised by the vaccine roll-out.
Ultimately all the equality and anti-separatism fighting comes from good intentions, but it’s a trap. It will always be framed by the evil journalist class as inverted. So as a 2021 New Year’s Resolution, why don’t we just stop doing it?
We need to stop playing these stupid games. Why waste energy on liberating people who couldn’t care less? It might be the right thing to do, but it’s also the dumb thing to do. We all get it. Affirmative action hurts Maori and Pacifica. I witnessed it first hand in university. Everyone’s got their stories. The anti-poverty actions of the government destroy self-reliance and enslave their victims for generations. It’s all intentional and immoral.
The same goes for treaty settlements and the separate Maori health system they want to set up—it costs us a few million bucks a year (cents on the dollar per citizen) to keep a bunch of greedy tribal elites sedated. We all know their separate health system and prison systems will give them worse outcomes too. (And if we turn out to be wrong, all the better: we can start identifying as Maori to get the good stuff.) We can even give them their own drinking fountains and bathrooms if the media trains them to beg for those too.
So go ahead, vaccinate all Maori first.
The rest of us can wait to see how the experiment goes. Some of us will happily wait forever.
