7 September 2007 Thought for the Week:
"We measure our
deeds and actions with two different yardsticks of morality. We are quick and
severe in the condemnation of the misdeeds our neighbour commits. But we fail
to judge at all, or at least with the same severity, our own actions through the
- - Dr. Hans Sennholz in "Christian Economics," 11 December 1956.
THE BATTLE IS OURSby Betty Luks
The first policy of the Australian League of Rights is: Loyalty to the Christian revelation of God. And therein lies the clue to the discovery of the golden thread interwoven throughout the last two-thousand year history of the English-speaking peoples.
Social crediter Hewlett Edwards in "The Cultivation of History" * explained it thus:
"History is the endless record of experiments; a series that cannot be broken and of which there is never complete specification nor adequate separation from a multiplicity of similar operations It is in this difficult complexity that policy is crystalised and becomes history in which men of understanding as well as of action have erected signposts for the use of their successors "
With Freedom Comes Responsibility - and how do we match up?
The first signpost is the Christian revelation of the nature and character of God as expressed in the Gospels along with the commandment to: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." Social crediters refer to this commandment as one of mutual love and co-operation.
Surely this mutual love and co-operation will include searching our conscience before we vote and for whom we vote in the coming federal election.
Do we continue to blindly vote for those who have betrayed their own Oath of Service to their people?
Do we continue to vote for those who have demonstrated their allegiance is to the Money Power (mammon) and its underlings than to their own people, their own nation?
Another signpost is the Athanasian Creed
This Creed draws attention to the threefold nature of Reality. The political and social implications of this statement were once not so obvious to leaders of either the Church or the State, as is verifiable by recorded history. For over a thousand years the leaders of both institutions strove to gain the supremacy over the other.
The third such signpost is Magna Cart
But it was Magna Carta which brought to light the trintarian balance. Hewlett Edwards explained: " despite the following of many false trails, the trinitarian idea was not always or completely denied, as is to be seen in the unfolding of the English constitution The Barons at Runnymede stood as an embodiment of the people of England, all England; the outcome and incarnation of the interlocking activities of Church, King and People; and their purpose was to bring the King to recognise his limitations in this threefold structure by the implementation of the rights of the other parties. Magna Carta was the sign and confirmation of this."
Government there to protect our rights - not take them away
The realisation of the political and social rights and freedoms of all English people could be said to have been born that day on the field of Runnymede. It was recognised that man's rights come from God and it was the true purpose of the State to safeguard those rights - not to take them away! This meant that men, as individual persons, were responsible for their own actions (or lack of them) and as these truths worked out through history, the right of the individual to choose a person to attend the Councils of the Realm to represent his interests was acknowledged. Representative government was born.
When did you last make contact with your representative and express your concern at the policies of both major political parties?
Will you make every effort to interview the prospective candidates before the coming federal election to determine which one will serve the people of his own electorate?
The coming federal election may yet prove to be a turning point - for the better - in the history of this nation, if we would only play our part in the political process.

TOLKIEN CALLED THEM WORMTONGUES, WE CALL THEM SPIN-DOCTORSWe are constantly fed the 'vision' of our 'great leaders' (please don't choke on the words), the noble elite, struggling with the inherent depravity of those who live upon the land, and now with the urgent push for the control of, all who have access to our precious water resources.
They would have us believe that human nature being what it is, these greedy people have not been cured by the need for 'never-ending production' and the draconian, parasitic imposts of the financial system. The problem, they imply, is due to the operation of 'private enterprise' or free enterprise. Therefore, it is in the very nature of these sinful 'free enterprisers' to destroy the soil, the rivers and at the same time, their own livelihood, unless of course, they are curbed by the socially minded elite.
Why is it never considered, never brought forward for public discussion or debate, just what these free enterprisers could do with adequate resources, a just financial system, and freedom from the never-ending, galling, bureaucratic impositions and restrictions? It is implied it is the greed, the selfishness and obstinate stupidity of those who live upon the land, and now those who have any access to the precious water supplies.
But that is not the case with the enlightened selflessness of the Financiers, Politicians, Bureaucrats and Big Business, they are there to 'do us all good'- by wresting control into their own hands over every area of our lives!
Wormtongues' next web of lies and deceit?
§ Can we expect their web of lies to imply it is really the gluttony of the sparse rural populations, being too greedy for money, they set out to exploit the river systems even at the expense of denuding their own lands? It is never the multinational conglomerates backed by the international bankers who have a long history of doing this throughout the Third World nations.**
§ But how will the wormtongues explain the curious turn of events which resulted in these 'sinful' inherently greedy free enterprise farmers, these most productive of farmers, becoming impoverished and now facing such personal tragedies and financial ruin?
Two very important books will explain how Mammon has worked throughout history, and will show that every time the Money Merchants gained the ascendancy the people were reduced to poverty and slavery and the land was ruined.

TWO OF THE MAJOR THREATS THAT WE FACE
The truth is, we
cannot hand over our rights and responsibilities to the State and let them dictate
to us the terms and conditions under which we shall live - unless we want to live
as slaves! I have read that the first centralised State arose on the banks of
the Nile on the basis of water control.

AGENDA 21, CONTROL OF OUR WATER - EVERY DROP
Do not "waste" water has become the eleventh Commandment. Evaporated water is part of the whole system of nature. Water of course is impossible to "waste" - it is one resource that never disappears. You drink it, you piddle it, it evaporates and is returned clean and pure; to use over and over - ad infinitum. Sure, you can waste resources moving, purifying, pumping, etc - but you cannot "waste" the water. There is no such thing as creating new water.

GLOBAL WARMING MANMADE? THINK AGAIN
Dr. Dennis Jensen, MP,
Hon. Jackie Kelly MP, Hon. Danna Vale MP and Mr. David Tollner MP, are the four
members of the Federal Parliament's Standing Committee on Science and Innovation
who issued a "Dissenting Report" which savaged the committee's major premise that
mankind's activities were the cause of global warming.
The four politicians have shown great courage and honesty in bringing forth this dissenting report. Do make the effort to write and encourage them to continue their stand for that which is true, that which is honest.
THE CANCER STAGE OF AUSTRALIAN CAPITALISM
On 10 June, 1970 Cohen asked the Prime Minister in Question Time whether he is aware that the immigration policy introduced by the Chifley government in 1946 is no longer applicable because of the pressure that vast population increases placed on the environment, land prices, housing and quality of life. At the time, both parties were shocked at the questioning of Australia's "sacred post-war immigration policy".
Today, there is no one in the House to even ask the question. In the Senate, the
politically correct Bob Brown, as far as I am aware, never criticises immigration.
Cohen points out the present climate change debate doesn't even bring in the population
question. It should, I believe. And when the multicultural/ethnic lobby screams
"racism" we should quote Barry Cohen :
Obviously the multicultural lobby doesn't care about the long-term survival of its tribes in this dying land. Nature in the end will decide if Australia continues in the cancer stage of capitalism with its growth with no bounds.
PROFESSOR MANNE AND THE MYTH OF THE NOBLE SAVAGE
by James Reed
The fine points of this debate need not concern us; I was interested in the subtitle of Manne's article, "the fantasy of the noble savage isn't for me". Yet in the course of his article Manne goes on to describe childhood in traditional Aboriginal society as a "time of indulgence" especially regarding sexual matters with children. How is this not romanticism?
He bases this on Ronald and Catherine Berndt's "Sexual Behaviour in Western Arnhem Land". I had a look at this book in the library and suddenly was reminded of the Margaret Mead/Samoa controversy where she said similar things that have now been refuted. It is too far fetched to be true.
In any case, nowhere does Manne come to grips with the morality of young girls being given to old men for sex. How do all of these recalcitrant elements fit into the politically correct world view?
KILLING US SOFTLY WITH THEIR PONG
by James Reed
Today we can still buy the beer and coke but the Aussie crayfish is a luxury, sold now to the princesses of Asia. Likewise with much of the best of the harvest of the sea. In turn, by the perverted, inverted logic of free trade and economic globalisation, we receive fish from Asia. Try finding a tin of tuna that is not a product of Thailand or some other Asian country.
Foul Fruits of
All of this arises from the logic of greed and globalisation : Chinese firms want quick profits and there are slack regulations and officials 'on the take'. Of course, Zheng Xiaoyu, the former head of the Communist Party's food and drug administration was executed for taking $1 million in bribes for approving medicines which led to the death of a number of people. But again, that only shows the depth of corruption in the Chinese system.
In the meantime watch out for your health. I don't buy Chinese food and products. If necessary and if possible, I make do with what I can get locally. This economic weapon of consumption is a most effective one in the battle against globalisation.
SLAVERY, CHINESE STYLE
Workers were being paid only $4.00 a day and overtime payments were often by means of tins of fish rather than money. Toilet facilities were appalling. Health and safety conditions were far below international standards. Workers had already gone on strike because of poor conditions. The mine authorities even went ahead without the owner submitting a feasibility study. But, if workers make too much trouble, the Chinese government will fly in Chinese worker-slaves to do the work.
Welcome to the world of Chinese capitalism, set to make "US imperialism" look like a Sunday school picnic.
GOD AND COSMIC FINE-TUNING
by Patrick Boyle
the problems with the atheistic responses to this question led me to embrace intelligent
design. Davies does not, but if he was consistent, that is precisely what he should
do as that is where the argument leads.
