This is the insanity we have to live with in New Zealand media inciting racial hatred and division.
There are 100s reasons why the government’s suicide plan is an unprofessional, corrupted, criminally negligent, abusive, illegal experimental, propaganda/marketing, neo-liberal abomination – but it has absolutely nothing to do with race WHATSOEVER.
It has everything to do with the PROVEN SCIENTIFIC FACT that privatisation of mental health services into the hands of contractors leads to people with the most need being rejected and those with the least being overly supported/resourced.
What Jacinda Ardern, Labour Party, ACC, mental health, DHB, police, justice etc are currently doing to me through the courts proves without doubt the government do not intend for people with Complex PTSD to have the professional treatment care, rehabilitation and safe stable homes (shelter and food security) they are entitled to if they are mentally injured by sexual and physical violence (or overwhelming trauma) and cannot work. These people are the most significant part of those who are suicidal and not coping in our neo-liberal extremist society.
Years of neo-liberal controlled governments have not deviated from the same corrupt, inhuman, illegal, unconstitutional behaviour. Making everything into an opportunity for someone to profit personally from a business has been a failure when applied to basic human needs as outlined in Maslows Heirachy of Needs. When applied to safety, housing and food security – our most basic needs.
My current wealthy lawyer laughed at me when I said I was being denied the necessities of life. If I had the necessities of life I wouldn’t be suicidal, self-harming, etc and ROTTING ON WELFARE. If you consider the evolution of humans I cannot think of another time in human history where a person would have where they live (a private rental) constantly threatened to be taken away, every three months. Where people could not live in peace – which is a significant part of the Magna Carta and why we have fkn laws and govt.
I have no feeling of safety because of the police violence and my complaints being rejected. I don’t have a man to protect me from other males violence. I never used to get scared if I heard noises outside when it was dark, now I freeze for a few seconds listening and waiting for a knock on the door and police coming to get me to hurt me again – physically and psychologically. I am also terrified of the large numbers of mentally ill people who I have been forced to live with who exploit and terrorise people like myself, mostly not on purpose. It is difficult not to be terrorised by someone who attempts suicide.
I have no shelter or food security, every day, every week, every month, every year, every decade I am forced to live with the knowledge I could be given six weeks notice from MY HOME and be homeless (as there are no state houses in Carterton I would also be driven from where I belong). I am forced to live with the knowledge that I have so little food and almost every dollar I am given has to go to food, therefore depriving me of other basic cultural rights.
The basic right to go to funerals, attend family events, participate in cultural events, go to a doctor when everybody else can, receive health care other people do, get justice (if I had money I would have paid a lawyer to get my ACC care back and sue them years ago), have a pet, have a job, etc.
Here is the news item that inspired this post. You should also refer to Chris Hedges interview with Matt Taibbli and other ones about how media incite violence to create profits.
Hi Selena – how’s your day going – you can withdraw from this and say you were being bullied into it you know. I saw how that Sgt was with you, I know how the decent officers feel about me being terrorised through the police and court system rather than getting the ACC care I’m supposed to have.
