I’m Australian, of Irish descent. I’ve lived in New Zealand for a few years. I love it and am very grateful to have been received. However, and although it strictly isn’t any of my business, I’m very worried about what’s happening to the Kiwi character. And to the character of the West generally, for that matter.

I’m a white heterosexual male: no offence intended.

I go to church – mainstream Christianity, nothing fancy – no offence intended.

I’m not a researcher.  The purpose of the articles and posts on this site is primarily to join dots.  There may occasionally be new information but, generally speaking, the dots I’m joining are already visible.  Once the dots are joined, I comment on the resulting picture (of what’s going on).
