Lance Wiggs on how to avoid NZ becoming like the US.

He makes a valid point. Desperation is relative. Compared with people in Libya and Syria, those in the US have it pretty good. Compared with those in the US, we in NZ have it pretty good. Compared with some people in any one of the four countries already mentioned, plenty of us have it pretty crap. It's all relative and it's unfair to delegitimise the issues of those protesting in the US because their desperation is different from that of those in Syria, or those in NZ. Of course it is. Now can we stop slagging them off and get in behind their point? All of them? Because essentially we're all after the same thing here.
