Independence – freedom from the control, influence, support, aid, or the like, of others.

    What a wonderful empowering and liberating word to announce a nations birthday commemoration day.
    200 years from now will New Zealand be celebrating ‘grievance day’ on Feb 6th 2211.

    Freedom from the support of others?

    You what?

    RG – we know you don’t subscribe to personal responsibility and freedom of choice.

    Or Paul Henry now unfettered from TVNZ?

    You want to be supported by others Robert Guyton?

    Don’t worry it will likely come when the Alzheimer’s kicks in and you’ll need others to wipe your wrinkly old bottom.

    And that’s called loss of independence. Not good


  6. robertguyton says:

    So Andrei, just to clarify, when Alzheimer’s claims you, you want to stumble about with your wrinkled arse unwiped?
    Support from others is a keystone of healthy community.

    Piddum@6:55 – your comment shows that you’ve already succumbed. Hope you have someone supportive in your life, whether you can remember their name or not.

    No Robert Guyton, given the option I would not end up in that wretched situation in the first place.

    However the world being what it is nobody is given the option these matters. Undesirable things happen to people, both good and bad without discrimination, and we all have to make the best of it.

    We do Andrei, and if bad things happen to our friends, we support them.
    At least I do.
