What Does It Mean To Be A Person Of Action?

What Does It Mean To Be A Person Of Action?

In yesterday’s blog I quoted Amy Brooke.  She said:

 “Claiming back this country from extremist groups will not happen without the so-called silent majority realizing that their lack of any action – apart from persistent grumbling – is one of the reasons why things have got so bad.”

This might not seem profound but undoubtedly the key to turning New Zealand around.  If we take action, we can end apartheid, racism, and separatism in our country. We can restore democracy.

What do I mean by ‘action’?

A group of us got together and we brainstormed the answer to this question.

What did we conclude? We concluded:

That certain actions are more powerful, generally speaking, than others.   That is to say, some actions are more likely to affect change more than others.

That without taking action, nothing will change.

Taking action is the key to change.

All of us can choose whether to take action or not. That is to say, we have free will.

When it comes to stopping the Maorification of New Zealand and co-governance, the following is a list of actions we can all take.

  1. Put up a billboard.
  2. Send an email to an MP.
  3. Sign an online petition.
  4. Appear on a select committee hearing.
  5. Speak to an interest group about Maorification and co-governance e.g. go to a fishing club and speak to the members about how we are about to lose all our beaches to iwi. Or go to the Lions Club, or Probus or another such club and speak to the group about co-governance and Maorification.
  6. Undertake a speaking tour of New Zealand.
  7. Put adverts in papers.
  8. Put a bumper sticker on your car.
  9. Leave stickers in public places.
  10. Put flyers in letter boxes.
  11. Put Stop Co-Governance booklets in letter boxes.
  12. Take Stop Co-Governance booklets with us when we go shopping and give one to someone.
  13. Put Stop Co-Governance business cards inside books in public libraries.
  14. Talk to someone about what’s wrong with co-governance.
  15. Learn the truth about the Treaty so we can quickly detect error.
  16. Write publications, have them printed, and deliver them to letter boxes.
  17. Send out a daily blog to subscribers or regular on-line newsletters.
  18. Hang banners off motorway over bridges.
  19. Stage street protests.
  20. Become an MP.

We tried to rank these actions, 1 being the least effective, 10 being the most effective.  We defined ‘effective’ as ‘influencing the stopping of co-governance and Maorification.’ 

We decided, for example, that sending an email to an MP was probably going to have little effect.  We would therefore rank it as a (1/10). Most MPs now just send a stock reply to emails they receive, and they carry on with business as usual. They take little or no notice of what the public are saying.

Putting publications in letter boxes around the whole country, we found, was extremely effective.  We ranked this 10/10.  Last year we printed 550,000 Stop Co-Governance booklets.  Sure, some booklets would have been binned without being read.  But, to compensate for those binned, others would have been read by multiple people.  As a result of those 550,000 booklets going out to the public, we believe that we ‘moved the needle’.  Two years ago, co-governance was not a major issue on the public radar.  Just prior to the election last October, co-governance had become top of mind for most Kiwis.  Politicians started to take notice and joined in to stop co-governance.  We influenced the election result, helping to put National, NZ First, and ACT into power and putting Labour / The Greens / Te Pati Maori out.

Putting up a billboard is also extremely effective.   When the public drive by a billboard, they see a message.  It makes them think.  If they drive passed the same billboard regularly, the message is repeated.  It becomes top of mind.   Through repetition, the message sinks in. We therefore ranked putting up a billboard 8/10.  The cost in minimal. $150 per board.

Signing an on-line petition can be effective. However, it depends on the number of people who sign.  If a million people sign, that would get attention, and likely effect change.  MPs think “Sheesh. That’s a lot of signatures.  These are voters.  I’d better give this my attention.”  But let’s face it, most petitions are not that effective.  So we’d rank an on-line petition a 1/10 if signature numbers are small, but 9/10 if numbers are a million or more.

Appearing before a select committee can be effective.  But this depends on many factors e.g. the quality of the submission, the openness of MPs to hear / receive what is being said.   Under the last six years of Labour, submissions were largely ignored, no matter how good they were.  The Labour government were determined to push on with their ideological plans irrespective of what the public thought.  Will the coalition be better? I sincerely hope so.

Speaking to an interest group can be hugely effective.  For example, two of our people (Michael and Digby) on our Stop Co-Governance team went to a local fishing club. They spoke to the president about the fact that there is a high chance we are about to lose all the beaches to iwi.  The president invited our team to speak to club members.  The meeting was a big hit. 

Michael and Digby took the club members through a PowerPoint show.  There was Q and A.  At the end they gave the members two publications – the Stop Co-Governance booklet and an article on our beaches being lost to iwi.  You can read the article HERE. 

Michael and Digby were so inspired that they are now planning to go to more fishing clubs.  The plan is to go to all the fishing clubs in all New Zealand. This is hugely effective action. The more fishing clubs they reach, the more effective this strategy will be.   “Effectiveness” is all about reaching the unconverted.

Their tour will undoubtably attract media attention.  As I said,  “Effectiveness” you see, is about reaching people who are not aware of what is going on in our country with respect to co-governance and Maorification.  They have not been awakened. 

Michael and Digby are going to them to awaken them. There is little point in talking to the already awakened.  Most organisations in our nation who are focusing on co-governance and Maorification are speaking to the already awakened. 

But the key to effectiveness is not going to the already awakened.  Rather it’s going to the un-awakened.  Julian found this out when he executed his tour of New Zealand in 2023, going to place to place, city to city, speaking to crowds in the public square. 

The result?  The effectiveness was 10/10.  The media picked up on his tour, the protestors poured in, the Stop Co-Governance booklets were pouring into letter boxes, and boom! The issue of co-governance rocketed to top of mind for many Kiwis, and many politicians. 

It became the major election issue.  They key to this success was getting out of our comfy homes, away from our desks and our computers, and going to where the people are – to the unawakened.   You see, it’s the people of this country, not the politicians, who, ultimately, hold the keys to power. The people can kick political Parties out of power, and they can install them into power.  So we must reach the people.

Putting adverts in papers, or on social media, can be effective.  But it depends on the quality / content of the advert.  It depends mostly on who is publishing it. For example, if Elon Musk, the richest man in the world, posted on Twitter (now X) that New Zealand must stop co-governance, and gave reasons why, such an advert would be hugely effective.

We’d give it a 10/10 if it was Elon Musk, or Prince Harry, or President Biden or someone with a high international media profile posted the advert. But most of us are not like this, so we rate adverts in papers and social media a 3/10.

You get the idea.

We could go through all the 20 “actions” above that we can all take to stop co-governance and Maorification.  Some are more effective that others, that’s obvious.

This is where Amy’s quote is so pertinent.  So profound. The reason we are in such trouble in our country?  It’s because of the silent majority’s the lack of action.

Today I want you, the person reading this, to ask “What action am I taking? What am I actually doing to stop co-governance and the Maorification of our country? How can I be part of the solution?  How can I move from being a persistent grumbler, to a person of action?”

Then go to the list of 20 above, pick out the ones that are doable for you, that get you out of your comfy home and office, and start taking action!

Make a plaque out of what Amy Brooke said, “Claiming back this country from extremist groups will not happen without the so-called silent majority realizing that their lack of any action – apart from persistent grumbling – is one of the reasons why things have got so bad.”

 “Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit at home and think about it. Go out and get busy”.

 —————-

As I have said, we must get behind Winston, Jones, Seymour and Luxon, emailing them regularly with encouragement and our full support to expunge co-governance and Maorification from New Zealand.

Leaders need encouragement constantly.

Email Luxon urging him to do what the people of New Zealand elected him to do, which was to rid the country of Maorification and co-governance.

Warn him that he will be a one term PM if he doesn’t.

Here are their email addresses:
