This morning I woke up to this beautifully written comment and decided to give it pride of place. I have never given a comment post status but for some reason I think many many people in New Zealand feel like this. At least if my readership is anything to go by. Numbers of readers are going up especially in New Zealand (about 30-60 unique new visitors ever day) and judging by the lack of aggression apart from the odd shill I think that people here are really beginning to get it. Thank you Robby for wording it so well:
It takes a lot to make a Kiwi angry. I know this because I woke up in 2006 and over the last six years with each fresh revelation of the truth the ratchet clicked a half degree more to anger. It wasn’t as if I was slowly becoming increasingly unhappy either. This anger was so slow to build up that I didn’t know it was there until just over six months ago. I somehow felt like I had missed the beginning of everything and that I should have been there to have my say so that things wouldn’t have got as messed up as they are… Like, I was strapped in and manning the manual winch that had a mile of chain attached to this anger and the winch is without a handle. By the time I realized that it had been slipping away from me, half a mile of chain was missing and the silent movement of the ratchet falling into place at the next notch had gone into an exponential free-fall. Before I knew it this anger had reach full length and it was going somewhere, dragging me with it.
I love peace and I am Angry so you had better believe that there will be a marked difference in the way we express how we feel about what is going on… all things being equal that is one in all and all in one.
