Thinkers replaced by Social Controllers on massive scale.

Global ethical human rights to replace neoliberal absolutism

The following is a clarification re prev article. It says thinkers are being replaced by social controllers because truth is the major threat to the dominant elite, secular liberal collectivists.
Also, explains how Corporations are highly favored.

The following is an email to PM John Key clarifying a comment I made in a recent small article,'Request for public debate with Nicki Hager on NZ Politics', http://www.indymedia.org.nz/articles/3061 I sent the latter to all political leaders as well as John Minto (well-known left activist)and Jane Kelsey (well-known academic and activist) also requesting a public debate with them with the exception of John Key who considered Nicki Hager's book one-sided with no criticism of the left. I asked John Key if he could arrange TV time so I could present give the other side of the story (I thought it was worth a try despite our differences).

So far I have had no reply and I'm not expecting one - so much of enormous global and domestic importance has been hidden from the general public it would mean the end of their careers. In fact, in my view, it would mean the end of the current global ideology being followed.

Dear John Key,

by way of clarification - re in my last email my comment that the National Party is protecting the secular liberal collectivists in its own interests i.e. the Corporations. I am thinking more in terms of intellectual property - non-discrimination re intellectual property has been left out of virtually all world constitutions (see Google's Constitute) allowing States, in my view, to strongly favor the Corporations and its 'old ideas'..

In my opinion, humanity has a universe to discover - next step Mars - for its own survival - what's needed is new ideas, creative growth. But also the greatest fear of the secular liberal collectivists, who are largely descent based, is the truth which is why the West with its traditional individual freedoms is set for 'permanent' decline (UN decision) - it is why NZ was purged of its best and brightest leaving us with a less than mediocre leadership in a culture more akin to a tribal culture where image and power is virtually everything with truth and the development of human knowledge are virtually irrelevant.

But much more important than the above an emphasis on bottom-up development is a matter of principle and the truth, which I consider will set us free, is more important than wealth or power.

The UDHR emphasizes individuals not elites. Art 22 allows the individual to 'realize' his/her economic, social and cultural rights 'indispensable for his dignity and the free development of his personality'.

A combination of the fanatical top-down control of a single ideology and the extreme secular nature of NZ i.e. the inner being is also a creative force, is destroying intellectual freedom, freedom of thought, entrepreneurship - I have exceptionally talented friends in the mental health establishment and others I know in difficult circumstances including the streets of Auckland - thinkers have been replaced by the social controllers more concerned with their mana within their tribe and power games than truth.

(I have another book contract with Lexington Books, well-known in academia, but for a brief description of the new plan for the world (I consider based on a proper interpretation of the Universal Declaration) see end of article, 'Comments on Helen Clark's refusal to discuss global ethical human rights'. An ethical approach to human rights, development and globalization has been promoted over the past six years to replace the currently dominant global ideology, neoliberal absolutism, which requires the whole Universal Declaration to be compatible with the IMF's elitist globalization which means when applied in public policy, driven by the bureaucrats, human rights are elitist and many suffer the terrible consequences).
