More diversity when/if more democratic focus

A letter to the editor of the Dom Post, Wellington (published in edited form). Also this week to the Herald in Auckland. Subject is the diversity study report on the GCSB and SIS.

Dear Editor:

Maori and Pacific Islanders are underrepresented in the GCSB and the SIS according to a recent diversity study. Perhaps, however, this should be seen as good judgement of Maori and Pacific Islanders. GCSB and SIS are, as they always have been, undercover political organizations and will do the bidding only of a current government and will interpret ‘national security’ as the interests of the elite.

If cyber security would be coordinated by an agency in conjunction with the public and the GCSB disbanded then maybe a more diverse section of the population would gravitate to real security efforts.
