Those laws are a reflection of their overall culture though. NZ wouldn't suddenly gain a sensible, adult approach to drinking if the prices dropped and you could drink in public.
I completely agree.... but MAYBE it's worth the few years of absolute chaos, maybe we'd come out the end a better culture....
I am only joking, kind of, but fuck it's depressing thinking how hopeless our drinking culture is.
