You mention you're not a voter anyway though?

This is pretty much it, re: the Greens.
this must be what youre referring to

but later i said:

i am and i dont, never did, i was attempting to illustrate that just cos anarcho socialism exists, it doesnt mean all anarchists are now socialists.
im not as critical of socialists anymore, considering that any social/left movement is better than the alternative, and while i still hold anarchism as an ideal, i also still have disdain bordering on outright hostility for anarcho-narks and the banarchist community.
i also said fairly early on in this thread that i would never vote for Hone, but i was already turned around by Mana's (socialist) policy by the last election.
i still dont like greens, but am maybe gunna chuck my vote up the local guy, cos theres no mana/internet in my electorate, even tho he has no personality, nothing to say and a blank website
the only other alternative is the labour lady, but either way it doesnt really matter cos simon bridges is polling at 50% currently, so its pretty meaningless.
something you posted after, so probably should have read before you brought up a offhand comment from 5 years ago...
obviously theres always something a lot better to vote for than greens, ive since been talking to other people in the alternative building and solar industries, and i dont think i made it clear in that thread how the major companies deliberately made the subsidy only for panels of certain dimensions, which is what they were making(less efficient larger ones), the smaller companies could not simply change the size of their panels, and so could not receive the subsidy, this was done obviously with the collusion of the green party/fitzsimmons, who were aware of how this would effect the smaller outfits, but as solahart and sola60 etc openly made large donations to the green party, these valid concerns were ignored.
if that not corruption, what is it?
