8 October 1965. Thought for the Week: "Civilisation can only revive when there shall come into being in a number of individuals a new tone of mind independent of the one prevalent among the crowd and in opposition to it, a tone of mind which will gradually win influence over the collective one, and in the end determine its character".
Dr. Albert Schweitzer
ARCHBISHOP WOODS SUPPORTS MAJOR FALLACY
In his address to the Melbourne Anglican Synod this week, the Most Rev. Dr. Frank Woods, Archbishop of Melbourne, fostered the most dangerous of the many fallacies concerning the true nature of Communism, that which postulates that Communism is primarily the product of physical poverty. This is generally known to matured students of Communism as the "empty-belly" theory. His Grace is reported to have said, "Poverty is the seed-bed of Communism". Poverty is, of course, a relative term.
The Australian pioneers did not possess motorcars, refrigerators, washing machines, electric power or other amenities, which today are regarded as essential for a reasonable standard of living. Compared with their descendants, these pioneers lived in poverty. But they did not readily accept revolutionary doctrines aimed at the undermining of the foundations of society. The history of the Communist conspiracy reveals that from the time of Marx, the son of a well-to-do German-Jewish family, and his famous collaborator and financial supporter, Engels, a wealthy "capitalist", down to the present day, the overwhelming majority of the leaders of Communism have never suffered poverty. Even the leaders of the Chinese Communist tyranny are products of the wealthy Chinese merchants class, not of the peasantry.
The great architect of Communist strategy, Lenin,
did not teach that the leadership of the Communist movement should be
recruited from amongst the waterside workers, but from the student intellectuals
of the world. Millions of human beings have known hardships without
feeling that this justified traitorous activities against their own
nations. One of the leading traitors involved in the Canadian spy trials
just after the end of the Second World War, Dr.Raymond Boyer, was one
of the wealthiest men in Canada.
It is a great pity that Archbishop Woods apparently does not understand the real nature of the Communist challenge, the result being that he thinks that Communism can be halted primarily by economics. People suffering real physical hunger, or some injustice, can certainly be manipulated by the Communists. Christian social and economic programmes are important. But this truth should not be permitted to divert attention from the diabolical nature of the Communist conspiracy.
BEHIND THE CONFUSION IN INDONESIA
At the time of writing the situation in Indonesia
remains confused. All the facts about the attempted coup last week are
not known. But it is premature to suggest that there has been any setback
to the long-term Communist strategy. It is known that if the Communists
cannot take complete control of the central government in Djakarta,
they propose to fragment Indonesia.
The West is now paying the price for past policies of appeasement. Only a show of strength by the West can halt the general deterioration in the whole of Asia.
POPE PAUL'S PLEA AT UNNo fair-minded person will doubt the sincerity of Pope Paul's dramatic appeal for peace at UN. It is the duty of the Christian Church's leaders to explore every possibility of helping the cause of peace. And there must be admiration for a Church leader like the Holy Father who says that he is even prepared to go to China to appeal to the Communists for peace. But Pope Paul was badly advised to say "The peoples of the earth turn to the United Nations as the last hope of concord and peace". Well might the Communists at UN applaud the Pope, feeling that his visit would add prestige to what they know to be their most valuable "front" organisation. Anyone doubting this should make a close study of the thoroughly documented book, The Fearful Master, by G. Edward Griffin (price 10/8, post free, available from The Heritage Bookshop, 273 Little Collins Street, Melbourne.).
It is true, as the Pope, says that there must be international co-operation between nations and peoples. But genuine co-operation is impossible with Communist criminals whose every effort is devoted towards enslaving the whole world. True peace will never be possible until the Communist conspiracy is defeated.
RHODESIA'S HOUR OF DESTINY
By the time this comment reaches our readers, it is probable that a decision will have been made concerning Rhodesia's future. The Rhodesian Prime Minister, Mr. Ian Smith, has stated that the current talks with the British Government must be "final and conclusive." He has also made it clear that he favours a unilateral declaration of independence if the British Government refuses an agreement, which ensures that civilised government, continues in Rhodesia.
Mr. Ian Smith is one of the great leaders of our times, a leader of comparatively small group of Europeans who are determined not to become the victims of another Congo. Mr. Ian Smith has had to proceed in the face of vitriolic opposition from the same "world opinion" which pushed British Governments into delivering other African peoples into the hands of criminal and Communist-controlled elements. That South Africa was forced to leave the British Commonwealth, and that Rhodesia may be left with no real alternative but to follow the South African lead, makes loyal British people everywhere sick with realisation of the treason and corruption amongst Western leaders. There are, however, healthy signs that many people in Britain, having had a glimpse of some of the problems associated with the members of races further down the cultural scale, are seeing through the haze of public misinformation and downright lying, which has hindered a calm appraisal of realistic solutions of race relations.
It is a sorry state of affairs if one of the most loyal and uncorrupted members of the British Commonwealth is to be forced out of the association. If this should happen, the shock may precipitate much needed action from their kinsmen in Britain.
SMEARING THE LEAGUE OF RIGHTS
The rapid expansion of the Australian League of Rights, and its effective educational and other activities, is resulting in yet another intensive smear campaign against the League. Communist smear techniques, which rely upon non-Communists to carry a false story, were brilliantly outlined by Whittaker Chambers, the top Communist agent who exposed Alger Hiss. Chambers called it the "conveyor-belt" technique. One of the standard Communist smears is to call effective anti-Communists . "Nazis" and "anti-Semites". It doesn't matter whether the person being smeared fought against the Nazis, or may even be a Jew.
Bearing the above comment in mind, let us briefly
consider the incredible allegations made at this week's Melbourne Anglican
Synod by the Rev. D.J. Pope, who stated that members of the Australian
League of Rights "are secretly entering the churches and, through subtle
means, are giving the impression that the Jews are trying to seize control
of the world."
In order to answer this question it is important
to bear in mind Mr. Pope's background. Mr. Pope was last year closely
associated with the visit to Australia of the former South African Communist
leader, Mr. Solly Sachs. He strenuously attempted to deny the Communist
background of Sachs. In correspondence with the League Mr. Pope revealed
an appalling ignorance about the famous Rivonia trial in South Africa.
This year Mr. Pope attended the Communist-inspired Helsinki Peace Congress.
He also visited Moscow. Mr. Pope has shown an increasing interest in
pro-Communist activities. As well might be expected, he has made his
position clear upon the sending of Australian troops to South Vietnam.
