INDEX: Titles And Descriptions

All posts have been written by Andrew D Atkin

Modern humanity, to a degree, needs long term planning and centralised regulation. I don't have a problem with that. What I have a problem with is the fact that the wider public have been isolated from the debate - we can't see the [real] thinking behind the policies. The effect being that the higher bureaucratic classes (societal engineers) are kept in their bubble, and an amorphous elite retains its slow-moving yet dictatorial power in shaping the world to its own unknown image.


Urban Design and Transport:

1. The Real Deal: Housing in New Zealand

The most condensed yet essential description on what's really going on with New Zealand's property disaster.

They call it "Smart" Growth to hide the fact that it's frightfully stupid...

In this important statement I cut down the common arguments used to justify forced urban intensification. I also illuminate the hugely destructive impact that forced intensification has on both housing affordability and the national economy, of which have now been demonstrated.

A comprehensive explanation on the development of housing un-affordability in New Zealand. I also speak about the far-reaching economic consequences associated with it.

4. Green Sprawl: Why not?

Describing the virtues and potentials of low-density property development. 

5. The remarkable mega-cities of the future

An eye to the future of property development, based on an appreciation of consumer preference, emerging technologies and economics. 

6. Auckland Versus Los Angeles

Comparing Auckland planning with LA planning. Same planning - same problems.

7. The demographics of Auckland's Unitary Plan

Talking about the social (engineering) impact of Auckland's version of Smart Growth

8. Affordable Housing: Is there any hope?

A blunt look at the political outlook in New Zealand with respect to the development of affordable housing, from late 2012.

An overview and explanation of the future (next 10-20 years) of transport.

I discuss the far-reaching effect of full automation in transport, which will be truly revolutionary to our economies and lives.

10. Thoughts on the driverless revolution

My ATN, as a concept in its own right, has been superseded by Google's driverless car technology of which will give us an ATN through a rapid evolution. I discuss the likely motion of that evolution.

A common sense explanation showing why Aucklander's (and other) should seriously consider the implementation of modern road-pricing systems to remove problematic congestion.

12. The end of buses?

Automated transport technology is moving at a  remarkable pace. Here is a possible first-step application, based on full automation, that alone could replace public transport as we know it.

13. Agenda 21: The Real Deal?

Modern planning philosophy is related to the UN plan, Agenda 21. But how does it work...really?

14. Where the Smart Growth zealots got it right - but wrong.

It's agreeable that low-density urban development is imperfect, and has problems as outlined by Smart Growth advocates, but Smart Growth is a false solutions to the described problems.



Explaining what exactly mental sickness is, and how (and why) the neurotic system works. The explanation is based on trauma-imprint theory.

A logical look at the probable genesis of mass neurosis, and an explanation of how and why serious human neurosis has been able to proliferate and sustain itself throughout the world.

A statement on the limits and latent impotence of human beliefs (as a subjective moral control system) over the deeper human realities.

Introducing the Milgram experiment, and a discussion on its function and meaning.

I also make the point for how we should all be familiar with this experiment.

As the title suggests, and I explain why beliefs can get impenetrably locked into a persons mind.

As the title suggests.

I clarify for the reader the reality of psychopathy, along with its nature (forget the Hollywood versions!).

I also argue for the introduction of compulsory testing to stop psychopaths from obtaining significant social power.

Psychopathy extended: A letter from an insider.

8. Great assumptions: Indirect propaganda

An insight on the mechanics and dangers of how people take too much on faith, and are encouraged to do so via social influences.

9. Do schools bribe people out of their minds?

A most direct look at what schooling as we know it does. It represents a very particular form of developmental control - with some fundamental developmental costs.

10. Debunking Primal Therapy? I doubt it.

Criticising the critics of Primal Therapy.

11. The boundaries of Neurology

Clarifying the limits of neurology and what it can and can't tell us, today. Relating this to research on trauma.

13. The importance of depth psychology:

Clarifying the role of depth-psychology, especially relative to behavioural psychology.

14. Human instinct and evolutionary psychology: Some perspective:

Putting human instinct and evolved behaviours in perspective.


Social order and public policy:

This is a statement for how I propose a world government could be established, with respect to its objectives and structure.

I highlight fundamental concerns associated with mass mental sickness, over population, and liberty etc, which a world government could address.

A collection of articles and letters opposing the basic idea of forced institutional development.

A short statement on the purpose and meaning of modern compulsion schooling.

An argument to effectively get rid of unions as we know them, and to instead impose a sophisticated system of job-specific minimum wages. My claim is that it may represent a far more effective and balanced form of fair-wage protection.

A general list of policy ideals (with explanations) which I believe could lead to a very significantly improved prosperity for New Zealand, and most other countries as well.

A reasoned argument to show why we should suppress advertising as we know it.

7. A kind of WW3: Human management Versus individual liberty.

A look at the need for human liberty to be balanced with human management.

8. Do we need a Georgia guidestone?

A call for an ecologically based constitution that locks down humanities relationship to the natural world. The objective being to reduce environmentalism to a reliable practice - not a political football or commercial tool.

9. What is a community education system?

Well it's certainly not a state system - state is not community. 


Philosophy and agenda-politics:

A fundamental and somewhat blunt look at the functionality and meaning of religion, and I discuss some of the modern ideas associated with it. I argue for the agnostic position as being the most rational and realistic.

A pragmatic look at the advantages of micro-chipping the public (using embedded RF tags), and in turn developing a database of records relating to each individuals visited locations and transactions.

A provocative article that looks at the possible need for negative eugenics within our modern societies, in time.

A perspective on our ability to adapt to a warming world.

Also provided are links to other people's opposing assertions to the idea that global warming will be significant, or problematic.

A short 'simple picture' statement on the potentially non-parasitic status of humanity on this earth.

A look at the USA's current economic status and some of the dynamics driving it.

A perspective on the "strange" relationship between modern prosperity and modern lifestyles.

A simple statement on how the public should be demanding comprehensive presentations on any given politicians thinking, over their time, and using the internet.

I describe how people may become easy pray for the worst kinds of politicians, for when they come to crave change but don't understand what kind of change they should want.

A statement and indirect criticism of the common Libertarian outlook, which I believe tends to be too simple and too in denial of our more profound social problems.

A statement calling for focussed research into human corruption.

The idea is for us to address human corruption like we address any other disease - that is, from a cool-headed, problem-focused position.

Some thoughts on how, theoretically, you might create some kind of a world take-over.

Are the conspiracy theorists right? Is it actually happening?

A blunt look at our modern corporately-driven cultural evolution, and where it seems to be taking us.

Introducing Alan Watt, and a personal statement of where I think we should stand with respect to conspiracy theorists.

An idea for empowering citizens to voluntary hand responsibility for their vote over to a trusted agent, for when/if they feel they could make a better electoral decision than they themselves would.

As the title suggests. My claim is that going from nations to a world federation makes as much sense as going from tribes to nations, etc.

An insight on myself and no doubt others.

As the title suggests, I provide a basic outline on the global warming issue.

19. Are we being Militarised?

A look at the possible genesis of civilisations - what drives us away from tribes?
I also review the structure of a militarised civilisation.

20. Confession of a political dominatrix wannabe

A subjective insight on the motives and possibilities behind using puppets as politicians for your political purposes.

21. Agenda 22: A personal wish-list for human/social evolution

If a world is to be driven by an agenda, and therefore a vision, then what should that vision be? 

22. Is casual sex normal?

A view on modern attitudes and ideas on human sexuality. I look at the human realities behind the moralistic attitudes, and how they relate to a promiscuous society. 

23. Democracy at its worst:

Democracy in itself is no inherent virtue - you can vote for good, or vote for evil. I look at the far-reaching impact of voting in the western world today (with my focus on New Zealand), with respect to the public's electoral tug-a-war of greed.



An article that looks at the economic consequences of domestic population change, as achieved by immigration policy.

A straight-forward look at the advantages (or not) of New Zealand trying to become a "knowledge" economy.

A simple insight illuminating the professional motivational difference between business interests and shareholder (stock trader) interests.

An argument for why we should not tolerate planned obsolescence - at all. I show how it's virtually all 'lose' and no 'win'.

5. Trade economy Versus domestic economy

A statement that we may be much too focused on earning foreign exchange, as compared to just providing the stuff that really matters for prosperity at home, such as good houses and clean food.

6. What is a Recession?

An explanation for the novice on what a recession basically is, and why we must go through them.

7. Getting rid of poverty in New Zealand: Impossible?

The real economy is first about resources - not money. And getting rid of poverty is first about supply - not credit.

8. Politics: The real reason why most people just don't care:

Our governments more than ever rules our lives. Why don't we care?

11. Generation Zero: The flipside

Young and ignorant - threatening to do a lot of harm in New Zealand. This group of copy-and-paste Greenwash activists can't get discredited planning ideologies out of their heads.



1. Agenda politics: How real is it?

Looking at the reasonability of the premise of the idea that the real world of politics has more to with calculated science than egotistical opinions.

2. Is this real?

A look at a proposed model on how the UN (may) control New Zealand politics. The focus is on the mechanics of international treaties.

3. Time to put away your faith: The government is not your friend

There are too many strange and highly destructive policies being forced down the public throat for people, today, to realistically believe that their government is primarily concerned with serving the people.

Are we just sheep to these people? Are we seen as mere stock to be managed?

Some insights on common politically correct values, and the indirect messages behind them.

A rational conspiracy theory, based on the idea that social planners might well have been pushing for the introduction of social policies that support population control, in the western world in particular.

It is based on the fact that population control, in whatever form, has been or will ultimately be necessary.

6. Was 9-11 and inside job?

Explaining the tower 7 collapse - or not.


A broad look at the status of today's developing technology, and where it can and most likely will take us in the foreseeable future.

A curious look at the possibility of greatly reducing personal transport costs with 'complimentary' mini-vehicles.

A short rationalisation for where/when I think the next step will be for mechanistic automation.

Some curious thoughts on how we could develop a theory of matter. I suggest we do this by using computer-simulators and applying the assumption that everything is ultimately a wave.



This is an idea for advanced ultra-efficient living systems (built from the ground up), based on modern technologies and automated transport infrastructure.

An idea and argument for the efficient, humane and indefinite containment of dangerous social offenders.

As the title suggests.

A practical statement on how education should work today, for today's world.

5. Breaking New Zealand out of the economic doldrums. An idea.

Here I present a virtual zero-risk 'build-it-and-they-will-come' idea for radically advancing the New Zealand economy, as I believe.

6. Time to consider Reproduction Licenses?

An argument to employ heavy-handed policy to curb the spread of severe, inter-generational child abuse.

7. Styrofoam-Brick houses

What's the cheapest way to make a quality, durable home? Here is my best shot.

8. Achieving Meritocracy:

You don't need a lot of brains in your world - just the right brains in the right places. How do we better get there?



This is a piece that I think every mother--or future mother--should review.

I provide a basic formula (with explanations) on how to optimise your baby's birth, and illuminate the far-reaching value of doing so.

2. Concept: Ultra-efficient living system

A living alternative to reduce costs (dramatically), and depending on your tastes improve your lifestyle.

I think young people who want to start a family should give something like this serious thought in particular.

A solid description of what can effect the value of your home in the future, relating to economic, political and technological changes.
