Citizens of New Zealand vote for me.
I will work for fundamental changes in society. These changes will be based on the following principles:
The paramount priority is that all people are of value and shall be valued equally.
The first purpose of work and the economy is for the provision of quality food, clothing, shelter, healthcare and education for all citizens. These are deemed to be the minimum requirements and no citizen shall go without.
The secondary purpose of work is for the development of culture and technology to enrich the lives of all citizens.
Success in business shall be judged by how well these criteria are met, not by the size of profit margins. All citizens should have opportunity for work and leisure that aligns with their passions.
Respect for the environment and the diversity of life is essential. The use of Earth’s resources must be carried out in a responsible and sustainable manner. All production processes and activities must ensure no irreversible harm to the environment.
Diversity is an asset. Peaceful resolution of conflict, co-operation and collaboration are to be fostered among all humans. Waging of war shall be illegal.
Together, let’s build a better world.
