Less advanced third world cultures superior to Western culture


I have previously opined about the insidious UN influence by UNESCO from 1951 where they asserted: ?Our third world cultures are viewed as not equal to the west, but in fact superior by virtue of the fact that they are less advanced?.

The establishment of the Treaty of Waitangi Tribunal has duped mainstream New Zealand and continues to do so by interpretative manipulation of the intent of the treaty. This is designed to facilitate acceptance of the UN doctrine. The UN deems ?western democratic society? is defunct. The west is to be sacrificed and eclipsed by ?a rejuvenated, idealised world culture? created by the globalist totalitarian socialist elites – now aided by an open border immigration pact and the embedding of third world society laws such as Shariah.

For the purposes of this opinion, the detail and meaning of the original Treaty of Waitangi is temporarily relegated to the ?back burner?. More relevant to this opinion is the fact that many part-M?ori and Pakeha activist elite influencers today are biased about the supposed alleged injustices perpetrated by English western culture since the 1840 treaty. However, in the process of elevating selective parts of the M?ori culture, they conveniently ignore the darker cultural perspective of pre-1840 M?ori history.

An abridged chain of pre-1840 events follows; extracted from the various publications referenced at the end.

? M?ori attacked the first European arrival in New Zealand without warning, consultation or negotiation as Tasman quickly found out much to his cost.

Again, just a few years after Captain Cook was killed, Marion du Fresne, while innocently fishing in New Zealand waters, unknowingly breached a M?ori tapu. Without warning, du Fresne and 26 of his crew were massacred and eaten by the M?ori. Lieutenant Roux, one of Marion?s officers, noted in his diary: ‘The chiefs declare war upon the slightest pretext, which wars are very bloody; they generally kill any prisoners they may capture’.

? After eradicating Marion, about 1,500 M?ori tribesmen assembled and attacked the French hospital established on Moturua Island. Although they were outnumbered, the French used firearms in defence and killed about 250 of the attackers, including their chiefs. In my opinion, this battle changed NZ history.

? Subsequently the M?ori tribes had a lasting mortal fear of the ‘tribe of Marion’ (the French), as confirmed ninety years later by the Rev John Warren.

? M?ori, recognising the vast superiority of European firearms over their traditional weapons, replaced warfare and cannibalism against Europeans in favour of bargaining for firearms with visiting ships.

? Hongi Hika?s return from a visit to England with several hundred muskets facilitated the most intense slaughter amongst the tribes during the so-called Musket Wars.
Hongi?s party reached the Bay of Islands on 11 July 1821 and prepared for his campaign which commenced on 5 September. Two thousand Ngapuhi armed with about one thousand muskets attacked Mauinaina Pa at Tamaki, killing Te Hinaki and 2,000 of his men as well as many women and children, cannibalising some of their victims.

? It has been noted that deaths in this one action during the inter-tribal Musket Wars outnumber all deaths in 25 years of the sporadic New Zealand Wars.

? In December 1821, Hongi attacked, but failed to take, the Ngati Maru pa: Te Totara. A large party of Ngapuhi chiefs went to the pa to offer peace which was accepted. Two meres from the Ngati Maru were gifted in good faith to seal the peace deal. During the night, Ngapuhi returned to the unguarded, vulnerable pa, killing most excepting the sons of the senior chiefs who were taken prisoner.

? Proceeding to the Waikato pa of Matakitaki, Ngapuhi attacked with musket fire. The Waikato were led by chief Te Whero Whero and, having only four muskets, they were virtually defenceless. While attempting to escape, many hundreds were trampled to death in the deep ditch surrounding the pa or were shot by Ngapuhi firing down on them, reloading until exhaustion overcame them.

Many more tribal wars occurred prior to 1840.

? Te Waharoa concluded an uneasy peace with the Ngati Maru chief, Takurua when he and his tribe arose at midnight and massacred the Takurua in cold blood. Nearly every man was devoured and wives and property were shared by the Ngatihauas.

? Te Whero Whero for his part decided to make war in Taranaki and attack the formidable pa of Pukerangiora. When the starving defenders broke and ran, Waikato attacked. At?least 200 escapees died immediately with Te Whero Whero killing 150 single-handedly with blows to the head. Those captives with finely tattooed faces were beheaded carefully on a wooden block so that their heads could be preserved. Later,?dozens of slaves were dragged away carrying the heads of their relatives.

? As many as 1,200 Te Ati Awa people lost their lives at Pukerangiora. Those that stayed behind in the pa watched the awful fate of their whanau unfold before them with huge numbers of the dead being cannibalised.

? Te Rauparaha was sometimes called ‘the Maori Napoleon’ (perhaps really ‘the Maori Genghis Khan’). Acknowledging that the Waikato were too strong for his Ngatitoa tribe, he commenced a long migration south, inflicting heavy slaughter upon Rangitane on the way. After establishing himself on Kapiti Island, Te Rauparaha commenced an invasion of the South Island where he almost exterminated the northern tribes and the Ngai Tahu; first at Kaikoura, then Kaiapohia and, in 1832, on Onawe. They were bloody massacres each with cannibalism and slavery. The Ngai Tahu had already been weakened by their own ‘Kai Huaka’ or ‘eat relation’ feud.

These are but a sample of incidents arising from the almost continuous warfare amongst M?ori tribes in the decades before 1840 that generally are not discussed and are probably omitted from the general curriculum in our schools and universities.

By John Robinson?s careful estimates, 35,400 were killed around the year 1800 from a population numbering around 127,000 with more dying later from their wounds.

Surely M?ori in pre-1840 New Zealand had a sense of dread from being faced daily by the threat of annihilation from competing tribes. Living in a heightened state of fear must have dominated most M?ori communities, bringing with it intense and relentless social stresses. Those consequences may still be felt today.

The ingrained fear of the French and the desired elimination of tribal warfare and cannibalism were perhaps the reasons that many M?ori chiefs preferred signing the Treaty of Waitangi and living under British Rule.

When facing the substantial social problems which confront New Zealand and M?ori society today, it is high time that pre-1840 M?ori history (including any misdemeanours of European settlers), be recognised, acknowledged and faced squarely. This contributes in part to the high M?ori prison numbers.

Ignoring, changing and ?forgetting? history by enhancing and glorifying a tribal, war-like, patriarchal warrior race will not benefit the M?ori of today nor their European partners.

Glorifying the Haka war challenge with school children, using the haka at education capping days and at just about every New Zealand ceremony, conflicts with a part of history that we should acknowledge, learn about and move on from.

New Zealanders should aim for a better, peaceful western culture that our entire population can enjoy and respect in unity.

The quiescence of New Zealanders to accept the false nostrum of Maori cultural ?superiority? as a panacea for globalist egalitarianism is to me astounding. The left utilise identity politics to ?shame? European New Zealanders into accepting the continual Treaty of Waitangi handouts and it is actually initiating tribalism and, possibly in the future, civil unrest between all other New Zealanders and M?ori; not to mention between M?ori tribes and M?ori societal classes.

Should any European dare expose the relevance of the pre-1840 M?ori ruthless war practices, including the eradication of the Mori Ori who were in New Zealand prior to the M?ori arrival, they will be deemed ?Racist?.

The very problem that enabled the pre-1840s massacres – tribalism by stealth – is being resurrected aided by the left-wing globalists to facilitate multi-culturalism and it is absolutely contradictory to the successful results of Western Democracy that facilitated the peaceful New Zealand Western Society.

Examples of Shariah and third-world patriarchal laws are being promoted above the best system to date: western democracy.

Marxism, Socialism and Communism have a history of total failure – ergo Totalitarian Socialist Globalism and its methodologies should be absolutely rejected by our western culture.
