MONOCULTURAL SOCIETY We do not live in a multi-cultural society. We do not live in a bi-cultural society. New Zealand is a mono-cultural society.
Broadly speaking, culture is the way we live our daily lives.
We are New Zealanders and enjoy the same culture.
That makes us a democracy, where equal rights should be enjoyed by all.
There are some groups who place their ethnicity above their nationality and so have acquired special privileges with the assistance of the government and generally endorsed in the media by not promoting the relevant information to the greater population, the silent majority.
The Treaty of Waitangi was for all New Zealanders, Tangata Nu Tirani not just Maori, Tangata Whenua, and so any new principles apply equally to all New Zealanders and so exclusive privileges cannot exist.
Finally, the Treaty is not our founding document, the Queen’s Royal Charter/ Letters Patent, November 1840 that made us a self-governing colony is. (abridged). B JOHNSON, Omokoroa
