Tyranny of the Majority

Tyranny of the Majority

You may well quarrel with my use of the phrase "tyranny of the majority" for this I make no apology. I regard man as a product of his total social field. In the case of the Maori, a large part of his social field (13 to 1) consists of Pakehas. Since the Pakeha controls the social and economic power and the decision making processes of this country he is in a large measure culpable for helping to make the Maori what he is today.
