Intermittent transimission

You may have realised The Jackal has stopped blogging. There are very specific reasons for this, including, but not limited to a lack of change from those in power.

You see, The Jackal wasn't about sound bites or superfluous hits; The Jackal website was about trying to change the overall system for the better. However, and I realise now, that I have utterly failed to make very much difference at all. This is because of an archaic and out-dated system that refuses to change, no-mater the evidence.

Unfortunately the various articles I have written have made very little difference at all to the status quo. To be more specific; my articles have not managed to change the minds of those who are in charge because they are stuck in their old ways.

These people in charge, although I struggle to call them people at all, have been determinably working against the people's best interests for a very very long time. Sadly they have been actively destroying our wages, our ability to buy houses, our ability to sustain ourselves, our ability to enjoy the environment and ultimately our ability to pursue the Kiwi dream. They have also been actively destroying our ability to choose our own destiny.

But none of that really matters now. That's because there has recently been new scientific consensus concerning climate change. Basically what these scientists are saying is that mankind has destroyed the Earth, to the extent that life will no longer be viable on this planet. Sorry to break that "news" to you. Earth will join our known cosmos of planets that are devoid of life.

You see, Earth is a unique and delicate entity…whether you believe in god, science or evolution, there is no current technology that can detect any other planet that can sustain life like our planet Earth. Therefore we as human beings (so-called sentient beings) have the ultimate responsibility to preserve and sustain all types of life, and unfortunately we are totally failing!

In New Zealand, the mindset of those who are in charge is that they cannot be responsible because they are just a small part of the problem. In other words, the right wings mindset is complete defeatism. That is the mindset that would have lost the first and second world war.

Although our standard of living has declined along with our financial security, Aotearoa's international standing, the thing that get's our defunct officials in the door, actually accounts for something. Despite the government’s ignorance of history, our international standing because of our previous endeavours actually matters.

As an argument against the right wing propaganda that they cannot do anything about climate change: New Zealand is in fact a catalyst for the rest of the world. When New Zealand stood up against nuclear testing, other countries listened. We are the inventors that every other nation takes granted of. There is in fact nothing us Kiwis cannot achieve if we want to, and unfortunately, along with the rest of humanity, we have chosen to not save ourselves.

It's a pity our current so-called leaders don't listen to what the public wants. New Zealand has unfortunately joined in a consensus of denial that will inevitably result in mankind’s demise.
