Saving a Famous Dying Friend

Intensive care for a hapless ‘free market’ host population
A famous dying friend, Aotearoa (AKA New Zealand), dear to some, taken-for-granted by many, and mostly owned by one (Her Majesty the Queen AKA ‘the Crown’) has been diagnosed with TPPA cancer.
TPPA cancer is a particularly insidious form of cancer that develops a wealthy investor-friendly economic framework at the expense ordinary people, who become an exploited host population in the malignant phase. TPPA, or Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement for long, spreads through countries first via sponsored politicians, elite bureaucrats and corporate technocrats who meet in secret investor deal-making sessions behind closed doors.
Most doctors regard the TPPA cancer, which has spread to Australia, Brunei, Chile, Canada, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the United States, and Vietnam, as terminal.
However, an emergency operation organized by an ‘umbrella’ activist group called It’s Our Future, will take place nationwide in Aotearoa this Saturday, March 29. Simultaneous rallies will occur in 17 towns and cities around ‘the country’, now often referred to as ‘the economy’, at 1PM.
According to many free-thinking scholars, journalists and activists, governments around the world are spreading numerous ‘free market’ cancers as ‘shock therapy treatments’ to discipline mass populaces to submit to the intensive care of a transnational capitalist class.
Associate professor of Law at Auckland University, Dr. Jane Kelsey said, “Armies of corporate professionals, sponsored politicians and elite technocrats are working on what is essentially a global neo-colonial cancer project – AKA globalization”.
‘Free market shock treatments’ initially included lifting financial controls to increase the fluidity of capital flows between countries, the corporatization and privatization of state infrastructure and services, the introduction of user charges, shifting the tax burden ‘downward’, and down-sizing public sector employment. In the wake of the global financial crisis of 2007 and 2008, cut-backs to public sector services were justified with the euphemistic term ‘austerity measures’.
But, like prior ‘free market shock treatments’ since the mid-1970s, key insiders had engineered financial and economic crises as coercive mechanisms to privatize state assets at fire sale prices, when targeted populations were overwhelmed with the sudden, far-reaching economic shocks.
“It’s an ‘economic health’ war inflicted by oligarchs, or the super-rich”, said Dr. Kelsey. “The oligarchs of the transnational capitalist class use ‘shock therapy’ to ensure their domination over the planet’s host populations are permanent.”
According to Dr. Kelsey, these ‘shock therapy treatments’ are deployed with an austerity injection known as New Constitutionalism 3.0, which seeks to expand markets by locking in the changes within supra-national jurisdictions, thereby restricting the democratic participation of the nationally-based host populations.
“What Fightless Kiwis don’t realize is that the New Constitutionalism 3.0 Austerity Injection is embedded into the strategy to spread the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement cancer,” said the Auckland University law professor.
“In a nut-shell, New Constitutionalism 3.0 is a 3rd generation cellular vector that changes the constitution of the host population, who become more and more constipated as they are force-fed public relations Newspeak, slick corporate marketing and ‘freedom’ propaganda to mask-over a dry diet of artificial political substance abuse,” Kesley added with a wry smirk.
It’s this constipation that makes the host population vulnerable to ‘free market’ era cancers like TPPA, says Dr. Kelsey.
“In other words,” explained the activist scholar as we boarded a chopper in the city of Hamilton in New Zealand’s North Island, where she had been attending a logistics meeting for the nationwide rallies, “governments are transferring a level of sovereign power to a global investment class who are gaining a commercialized form of sovereignty.”
New Zealand Prime Minister John Key stated glibly, “I’m not worried about trading away a very small amount of sovereignty.” But, then as he thought of himself, he said grinning, “With a net worth of $50 million, I stand to make fuckloads of bucks from the new investment opportunities that will come once we dismantle pesky legislation that protects whining workforces, complaining consumers, and nancy nature.”
Between co-organizing the 17 rallies taking place around Aotearoa under the banner of It’s Our Future, Dr. Kelsey has a busy schedule teaching law to students at both introductory and post-graduate levels.
Over the helicopter coms, the long-time activist-scholar continued, “With their new commercial rights, wealthy investors will be able to sue governments in secret supra-national tribunals if the host populations attempt to keep protections for labour, human and indigenous rights in place. Under the TPPA, wealthy investors will also be able to use the secret tribunals to roll-back environment, commercial and social justice laws.”
Shock Treatment for TTPA Cancer
Dr. Kelsey says active treatment of public protest, community education and strident media debate can send the TPPA cancer into remission, or kill it off entirely.
As Prime Minister Key stabbed a roast kiwi with a fork at a business breakfast sponsored by the ANZ bank, he scoffed at plans of counter-treatment for TPPA-cancer saying they were, “just more silly socialist intervention”.
Cutting into the dead bird’s fleshy breast, Key added, “Look, my advice to hard-working Kiwi families is the same as what I gave on TV3′s breakfast news during the TPPA conference held at the Sky City Convention Centre in December 2012 – ‘Ignore the protestors’.”
“The trouble is”, says Dr. Kelsey as her eyes went cross-eyed to mock Key’s distaste for free-range Kiwi dissent, “Aotearoa is populated with anti-protest bodies known as Fightless Kiwis that compromise the effectiveness of Aotearoa’s immune system. So, when Fightless Kiwis hear John Key say ‘Ignore the protestors’, they obey as if the prime minister has ‘Simon Says Powers’ and re-act out old irrational fear scenes from their formative years and ‘think’ that if they listen to reasoned dissent, there will be economic hardship. Why? Because ‘free market’ capitalists, with their ‘Simon Says Powers’ amplified by the news media, have everyone believing there’s no other way to organize society.”
As Key ripped the wings off the roasted iconic native flightless bird on a china plate made in Taiwan, he added, “It’s better for the ruling class if hard-working Kiwis keep their apathetic bums up and their beaky noses at the leafy worm-litter face. If mass mobilizations occur, democracy’s aging bones begin to creak and it makes my job harder to say on More FM, we have an aviandate to spread TPPA-cancer called the Forest & Bird Election.”
According to Dr. Kelsey, Fightless Kiwis are easily identifiable by their temerity in business, but when it comes to participating in the political life of New Zealand society, they lack belief in themselves and one other to question ruling class agendas.
“When we ‘agents of change’ try to talk to Fightless Kiwis, say at barbeques or wakes, about challenging the status quo”, said Dr. Kelsey, “or being involved in paradigm-changing community projects that build in resilience to transition to a self-determining society, they go silent. You can almost see the life go out of their eyes and their faces say ‘Nup’ without a word passing their lips. It’s amazing and frustrating to witness.”
As the chopper followed State Highway One to the New Zealand economy’s agglomerated ‘Super City’, Auckland, a route that was originally built as a military road to wage a racist war to steal land from the native Maori population in the 1860s, Dr. Kelsey explained the typical conditioned behaviours of Fightless Kiwis after three decades of ‘free market’ consumerism. “The only things Fightless Kiwis believe in are what the woolyvision distracts them with. One minute, they want CokeVBull, nec minute XStationPlayBox. And nec minute, when they think they’ve grown up, they think Key DotCliffe will be the answer to all their vague thoughts about their needs, rights and aspirations.”
“It’s telling that most Fightless Kiwis haven’t even heard of the TPPA cancer,” yelled Dr. Kelsey as we jumped out of the chopper at 500 feet without parachutes to save time.
Dr. Kelsey was cutting it fine to give a lecture. As she ran for the Intellectual Property Lecture Complex at Auckland University, I asked Dr. Kelsey if she had any last requests to make of Fightless Kiwi anti-protest bodies.
She sighed, and said, “For what it’s worth, please help me save a famous dying friend, Aotearoa, by getting your systemically apathetic feathered rumps onto the streets with signs that show you know what’s at stake before you become Caged-raised Kiwi Steak.
