Elite Maori try hard to make the rest of New Zealand feel guilty about a lot of things – that we are breaking the Treaty, that we ripped Maori off in history, that colonialism was a disaster for Maori, that New Zealand was paradise for Maori before Europeans arrived, that as white people we need to feel ashamed, and so on.
Why are they weaponizing guilt in this way?
