"To write is to wage war" - Voltaire


Media Whores is now closed down due to the untenable 'legal' situation in New Zealand whereby police apparently now have the right to raid people's homes, seize their computers and cell phones, then place them in holding cells all day while a procession of psychotic / pseudo science psychiatrists enter your cell and tell you that you must be insane, before then committing you to a 5 day mandatory stint in a mental hospital, where they try to push hard drugs on you 2-3 times a day, before finally releasing you to go before a judge. All under new 'Digital harm' allegations - as in someone can merely allege you have caused them 'digital harm' and all of the above can happen before you even get to respond, or even see the actual allegations.


This website has now been dedicated to Dr Stephen Duffy of the Hilmorton Hospital Christchurch who despite apparently watching it closely and being able to rattle off quotes and themes from it's 1500 or more articles over the past 2 years, showed no interest at all in the Justin Davis Files which contain allegations of many top level NZ doctors and PHD's being involved in the organized drugging and abusing of children in this Nation. Dr Steve Duffy was recently quoted in the media as saying that a new "App" from the USA could help reduce suicides in New Zealand, but we would like to hear him admit that exposing and then actually investigating child abuse allegations would help reduce suicides as well as related mental illnesses in New Zealand.


Let's not silence, ignore and prescribe hard drugs - let's all agree to speak out and investigate - and insist on a child abuse free New Zealand......






The power to prescribe these dangerous hard drugs must be taken away from these new age pseudoscience quacks

Perhaps at some point we all may need to consider the possibility that it is in fact the lunatics who are running the asylum.

Thank you to all of those who have supported the website over the past 2 years. What a trip ;)  Case closed.

“We need to hold a full independent inquiry into historic abuse in state care. Why? Because without a full investigation of exactly how, and for whom the state got it wrong in the past, we risk making the same mistakes again. Just as important, there are many victims living with the effects of their horrific experiences who are calling for meaningful acknowledgement of their pain and suffering. The Confidential Listening and Assistance Service and government review of Child Youth and Family were important steps in this process, and a full inquiry will demonstrate the commitment of our elected leaders to making amends and closing this ugly chapter in our history.”

“From the end of World War II until the 1980s, the government took more than 100,000 children into state care: into foster homes, health camps, special education homes and psychiatric hospitals; into welfare care, and into borstals.


It took them in to protect them: from neglect and poverty, from family violence. But for some of those 100,000 children it was the worst thing that could have happened. People charged with their care were not fit for the task.


If you were one of those children, this is for you.”
