Looking at what new NZ citizen Peter Thiel has been contributing here, from afar, we see it has mostly to do with the GCSB and the Five Eyes spy network. Given that Five Eyes is mostly for feeding the National Security Agency (NSA) in Washington, DC, it looks like he is working in the interests of the elite in USA (and NZ) primarily, probably not in the interests of most New Zealanders.Perhaps in practice what has happened is that New Zealand has become a ‘citizen of Peter Thiel’ rather than the official notion of the other way around.
