NZB3 Reboot

By NZB3

The NZB3 (New Zealand: Be Free; Get it?) blog and podcast was my voice on the internet back in 2006 when I was a bit younger and a libertarian. Bits of it are still online here on Blogger. It was the Golden Age of blogging before the social media giants like Facebook and Twitter or […]

1934: George Bernard Shaw Visit

By Anarchist History of New Zealand

Today in history, March 15th, 1934, celebrity¬†playwright George Bernard Shaw toured New Zealand. A great writer and great wit, it was he who rightly said “a government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always rely on the support of Paul.” and “If you aren’t a socialist as a teenager you have no heart, and […]

Gun Banning: Vanity before History

By NZB3

New Zealand is on a transition from mainstream Victimhood Culture to mainstream Slave Culture because SC will expand to outstrip the supply of free stuff VC gives away; Like mice in a grain silo. The next transition after that is Honour Culture coming in and kicking the Slave Culture mice around without remorse. Same thing […]

1933: Pranking the Authoritarians

By Anarchist History of New Zealand

October 1933: It’s just a joke! From an era of rising tension and new seriousness culminating in global warfare. The mainstream culture had become overbearing to many of the lighter-hearted Kiwi larrikins who wanted their intense co-worker or uncle to chill out a bit. More and more, New Zealand’s mainsteam was filling up with¬†authoritarian do-as-you’re-told […]

2020s: Dignity Culture Rising

By Anarchist History of New Zealand

Social history right now! Rob Stock is triggered so badly by Marie Kondo, that he goes on an Abe Simpson-esque spiel about minimalism, house prices and frugality. Apparently she’s promoting an extreme lifestyle! Watched some of this Japanese Netflix sensation today. Basically white people are learning/re-learning about how to tidy up after themselves. And who […]

Why Vaccination Should Never Be Made Compulsory

By VJM

25 people have been infected by a measles outbreak in Canterbury, and one could predict from the degree of anti-anti-vaccination hysteria that there will soon be a social movement to make vaccination compulsory. Many people are calling for it, and the rhetoric demonising the anti-vaxxers is growing. This essay discusses why compulsory vaccination is the […]

Did Cannabis Prohibition Doom Humanity to Extinction?

The counter-culture that arose in response to the Cold War championed many things that made them hated: free love, a return to Nature, a rejection of materialism – and cannabis. This essay examines the possibility that we would have survived if only we had listened, and that cannabis prohibition […]

1947: Socialised Dentistry for Kids

By Anarchist History of New Zealand

From Feb 1 1947, Labour 1.0 socialised dentistry for everyone up to the age of 16. Called the Adolescent Dental Service then, I think it’s now termed the General Dental Benefits Scheme. Later the age was shifted to 18yo. I assume this was a socialist election promise to help Labour 1.0 stay in power beyond […]

Have your say

By Anarchist History of New Zealand

Thank you for your suggestion, we’ll put it in the suggestion box we refer to when making our political decisions. The thing is, my naive friend, my not-an-anarchist-yet friend, we don’t give a damn what you think. That was a feint, theatre, a pretence to get the sanction of you: the victim. Actually we know […]

1973: Nazi Role Models

By Anarchist History of New Zealand

1973, Why is the Woman’s Weekly reader concerned about how things worked out for the Nazi reproductive/social strategy? My answer is that there is a healthy drive in every one of us to know the long-term consequences of different life choices. We want to know that the good go to heaven and the evil to […]

Why Victimhood Is Aggression

By VJM

In a moral climate as degenerate as ours, weakness has become a virtue. We have come to believe that anyone who is weak must be innocent and the victim of misfortune or prejudice, and is therefore owed compensation. This has led to interest groups scrambling to position themselves as the biggest victim. This essay explains […]
