census 2011

census

every 6 years we are told by the government that we have to fill out a census form or we will face criminal charges… i don’t like being told this so every 6 years i try to dodge it .. i just sign it , date it and hand it back .. name , rank and serial number… this goes down like a lead balloon with the volunteer dropping off and picking up the papers …. the volunteers insist that you fill out the entire form or face prosecution…. they have been trained to deal with people like me , but i am a stubborn bastard… they tell you that you have committed a criminal offence , if i am a criminal i have a right to remain silent and so it goes on like that….. in the end they take the papers and go.. there is a reason that i don’t like filling out these forms..  its information on me that business, members of the private sector , iwi etc can use to make money … they can make money by targeting people like me, the infomation defines a market for them without financal input … the taxpayer funds the census… if the infomation was only used by the government i may be inclined to fill out the forms…
