Some languages are alive, others are dead. The Maori language is on life support. The plan appears to be that after enough support, this language will be able to breathe on its own. however languages are a thing of the people and if people don't want to speak it, nothing can change that. Perhaps we should also ask ourselves, what's the point? How can this language ever solve Maori problems? There seems to be a notion that if Maori would only use this language all their other problems with fall into line. I don't any logical way that could happen.

Wonderful explanation by Mei Chen highlighting equality is severely compromised favouring discrimination as its replacement. We Proud NZers have certainly missed the plot on this one and should remind our government to honour it's obligation to the Treaty. Nothing more needs to be said really unless of course you object to the meaning of equality and support the view to disallow Maaori the same rights and privileges that we NZers are entitled to, to preserve our own identity on land that our forefathers stole from Maaori for us to live wholesome lives. That's a sad state of affairs if that's the accepted view of the majority. There's something obviously wrong with this picture.
