James and I have been assembling a book of populist quotations for distribution to subscribers of Connor Post and for sale at large. So it was kismet when Whale Oil blog provided us with the names of David Lange, Robert Muldoon and Winston Peters as New Zealand sources.
Lange, Muldoon and Peters are populists we might not have come across, due to the routine inattention given to Australasian thinkers in the northern hemisphere. But if the New Zealand school system is anything like the U.S.’s (alt-Marx-filtered pablum spoon-fed—but force-fed!—to history naifs pasteurised into PC multiculti drone bees), then even New Zealanders may need reminding of their proud past with these pols. (That’s the correct use of “pride,” btw.)
