Tracy Neal at the Nelson Mail reports:
St Arnaud farmer Richard Osmaston is pushing his crusade for a moneyless economy by standing for mayor of Nelson.
He should stand as a Green Party candidate. The Greens want to print money, which of course devalues it. So given enough time you would have a moneyless economy.
He said he believed in the need for a revolution from a monetary-based economy to a resource-based one, where everything was free and all work was voluntary, because humanity was looking at social breakdown like never before.
Again Greens are against all work testing for welfare, so I think this is a real opportunity for them,
