You yourself have said more than once that the government should be an enabler, if I recall correctly. Ours clearly has not been.
It can and it has.
It isn't responsible for example for people having children they can't afford to feed or not paying attention at school and making the most of the educational opportunities available to ensure they earn good salaries.
There is no shortage of opportunities in NZ to do well. It requires an attitude shift and I don't really see quite how that can be achieved by the government alone.
Enabling is great, however you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink.
