On Target

3 December 1976. Thought for the Week: "From the first moment, Marx and Engels made it plain that the Communists were not interested in interpreting the world, but in changing it: 'All philosophers have sought to explain the world, our business is to change it'. The road to change was '...the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions' (Communist Manifesto). And the goal was total, unlimited power in the world. "Therefore, when Communists write, it is not to express their beliefs, but to create the necessary political force to attain their utterly ambitious goal. "This point was unequivocally established from the very beginning: 'Communist teaching is not dogma, but a guide to action'. Lenin amplified: 'All our theories are programmes of action."

MR. LYNCH' S LAST LUCKY DIP

"The Fraser Government has made what will prove to be a mortal blow to its economic credibility. It certainly has done great harm to the material welfare of most Australians." Mr. Kenneth Davidson, in The Age (Melbourne, Nov. 29th.)

Mr. Phillip Lynch, Federal Treasurer, has taken many monetary moves since he officially became the public relations front man for the Treasury almost twelve months ago. The main thrust of the so-called Fraser-Lynch economic strategy has been to attack inflation, but in the threadbare orthodox manner. The Treasury' s obsession has been the large Budget deficit (deficit budgets are inflationary, but in a manner other than that normally given by the Treasury) and this has been attacked, thus far with unimpressive results.

Monetary measures have been implemented to "mop up" all that excess liquidity which people like our readers are said to have sloshing around in their pockets and purses. The rationale is that all this excess money "bids up" prices of goods and services. But the "excess liquidity" is not in the pockets and purses of the men and women in the street. True, savings deposits are high, but Mr. John Citizen is hanging on to his one thousand dollars at the local savings bank because his job may not be there after Christmas.

If all those millions in personal savings were released, the resultant boost in the economy would not last indefinitely; it would amount to an economic picnic for a little while. Remember that the amount of debt owed by these same savings depositors would be far in excess of their deposits: e.g. the man with his one or two thousand in the local savings bank will most probably have a mortgage of several thousand dollars on his house, and two or three thousand dollars owing on the hire-purchase agreement on his car, furniture, fridge, etc., etc. This is a normal type of financial pattern for the average chap.

Back to Mr. Lynch's last lucky dip. We say "last" advisedly, because he has been into the "lucky dip" before with various fiscal and monetary measures - but the spectre of unemployment and inflation won't go away. Devaluation, which Mr. Fraser and Mr. Lynch have said many times was not "on", has now been pulled out of the lucky dip, more or less in desperation, we feel. It will not have any long-term benefits; devaluations never do. How many times has Britain devalued since the end of the Second World War? Look at Britain's economic plight now!

We would not be in the economic straits that we are in now if we had been able to attack our own cost structure by really reversing inflation, along the lines advocated by the Petersen Plan, the Plan so firmly attacked by the Treasury and its mouthpieces, with Mr. Lynch leading the chorus.

In the terms of economic realism, devaluations just mean that we all work that much harder to send out of the country real tangible goods, and in return we receive some figures in books. It is now plain that Phillip Lynch has been borrowing heavily overseas, not, as he said "to keep our name before the borrowers", but, indeed, to bolster Australia's dwindling currency reserves in order to delay devaluation. It didn't work. Now Lynch, the public relations smoothie (and this is his "role") has had to eat crow and "sell" the Reserve Bank's whopping 17.5% devaluation.

Mr. Kenneth Davidson is right: this last lucky dip will prove to be a mortal blow to the Government's economic credibility.

Now more than ever, supporters should be distributing the League brochure: "Fraser Government on Road To Disaster", which was issued by the League on March 19th this year. We can supply one thousand for $10.00; post free, with corresponding reductions for smaller amounts. Order from your State League office.


JIMMY CARTER/JIMMY CARTER

We have had many enquiries for the book of this title, written by Gary Allen. We did have a mere handful of advance review copies, which were distributed to League executives and key personnel, and no doubt many supporters have sighted some of these. Supporters will be pleased to know that a large order of Gary Allen' s "Jimmy Carter/Jimmy Carter" is on the water now, but this will not reach us until January. We can advise supporters that, under President Carter, there will be no alteration at all to the disastrous foreign and economic policies which were pursued under Nixon and Ford; not to omit our Henry (Kissinger).

In his monthly journal, Instauration, that dazzling scholar, Wilmot Robertson (author of The Dispossessed Majority) heads his article on Carter - "What About Jimmy the Tooth?" - with three lines from Hamlet: "O villain, villain, smiling, damned villain! That one may smile, and smile, and be a villain; At least I'm sure it may be so in Denmark:" Yes, we shall take advance orders for Allen's "Jimmy Carter/Jimmy Carter" Price is $1.30, post-free.


BRITAIN IMPRISONED IN INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND STRAIGHTJACKET

"A stiff squeeze on credit to ease the pressure on sterling was announced by the British Government last night." - The Australian, November 20th, 1976.

We appreciate, but not with pleasure, the effective understatement given in the newspaper item that "the squeeze was made with the full approval of the International Monetary Fund team, which is still in London". If we substitute "on the full instructions" for "with the full approval", then this would be much nearer the truth of the situation. Under the new credit squeeze, bank credit will be available to few but those engaged in export: the rationale is to reduce markedly the volume of sterling currency which is vulnerable to "international pressures!"

These comprise a host of complex international financial transactions, which, because of the various manipulations, are having the effect of reducing the credibility of sterling in the world money markets. The less the volume of sterling the less opportunity for these "international pressures" to have their deleterious effect. It goes without saying that the sharp contraction of bank credit within Britain is to have its inevitable effect there also: still higher unemployment, further industrial and social friction; the British revolution is moved up another notch.

As we have been warning recently in these pages, sterling is now all but abolished as a reserve currency. The article, from London, in the Business columns of The Age (November 20th) has it that "The new exchange control arrangements mean Britain has effectively ended sterling's role in international trade as a reserve currency for third world countries".

We have commented before on the implications of this, and shall not take up space with repetitions. Our suspicions, long held, that a collapse of the West's finance economic system could be triggered first in Britain, are beginning to confirm a horrible, dry throated, heart pumping reality that imminent disaster brings with it.


BRIEF C0MMENTS

Mr. Neville Wran, the Premier of New South Wales, doesn't like Australia possessing an Anglo-Saxon majority any more than does Mr. Malcolm Fraser, Prime Minister, with whom he is in conflict over industrial policies; notably shipbuilding at Newcastle. As reported in The Australian (Nov. 27th), he urges us to forget our British past, and to work towards a "multilingual", "multiracial", "multicultural" society". Well now; just like those of Southern Africa, Pakistan and Lebanon. Really a goal to work towards, Mr. Wran. A nation can only achieve peace and normal progress in the various facets of its "ethos" when it is overwhelmingly homogeneous, racially. This statement would not please Mr. Al. Grassby, doing very nicely, thankyou, on his $36,000 plus, as Commissioner for Community Relations. If he had his way, people like us would be even imprisoned for stating this bald truth. As his very nice pickings are dependent upon lots of racial unrest in the community, he must make his absurd pronouncements with his tongue bursting out of his cheek. But maybe he really believes his own gibberish.

Winston Churchill said of himself that he had "a well trained conscience". Those horrible South Africans and Rhodesians have a keen awareness of racial problems - having lived with them for centuries - and realise that conflict can be avoided by only allowing each race to work out its own destiny, alone. This is Apartheid - a terrible threat to world peace - over which issue the United Nations enjoins all member nations to enforce sanctions against Rhodesia. Australia slavishly obliges; hastening the day when, she, herself, may become the victim of United Nations resolutions, one of which may well be that our "empty North" be thrown open to millions of (Red) Asians, who, after a logistically sufficient period will flood South. Goodbye Australia, then.


The International Idea

"Owing to the failure of the World's governments to discover a remedy for the economic evils with which all nations are now afflicted, we are being told by our leading politicians, economists, and journalists, that no nation is today a master of its own destiny, and that the economic affairs of the world are so interwoven that a remedy can only be found in the union of all nations. It is proposed by various publicists that it will be necessary to have an international currency, that all tariffs must be abolished, and Sir Arthur Salter goes so far as to propose a Federation of the various European races (which is now the case in the form of the Common Market... On Target). Apparently, these writers and speakers have given but superficial consideration to this whole subject, or else they are the instruments of the financial group that is bent upon controlling the trade, industries, and even the politics of the world." Arthur Kitson, in The Bankers' Conspiracy (1933)

South Africa
from British On Target (November 6th - 20th)

we present this short article on South Africa by Mr. Ivor Benson, well known to League of Rights supporters. It is titled:

"The Kissinger Plan -National Suicide for South Africa
"It would be hard to imagine a worse state of confusion than that which prevails today in the public mind on the subject of the politics of Southern Africa. "The mass media, including radio and television are, of course, the main contributors to this state of mental confusion; aided and abetted by our political leaders who, sensitive to the widespread feeling of uncertainty and anxiety, do nothing but dole out soporific phraseology.

"Press and politicians alike, these scribblers and wafflers understand only too well what line is required: nothing must be said, no questions asked which could even momentarily rescue public opinion from its state of stunned confusion. Indeed, these 'opinion makers' have nothing to learn from the 'ink fish' when it comes to pumping murk into the waters!

"What question could be asked, if only we could be sure of real answers instead of answers which dodge the question! The first question would be this: Is South Africa a sovereign or not? If Africa is a sovereign State, then why do we have to negotiate with the United States of America in the person of Dr. Henry Kissinger, the unelected, alien-born American citizen under whom Presidents come and go?
"Why, too, does South Africa's Prime Minister expect our people to have confidence in this alien person whose disastrous 'peace missions' include the deliberate handing over of Vietnam to Communist control, and not long after, the granting of American recognition to the tyranny of Soviet colonialism in Eastern Europe?

Politics of Confusion
"One or two sentences which formed part of the speech delivered by Mr. J. Vorster in Pretoria on the night of September 13th, at a gathering of some three thousand people to celebrate his tenth anniversary as Prime Minister are of considerable interest. "Dealing with the reasons for entering into negotiations on the future of Southern Africa with Dr. Kissinger, Mr. Vorster is reported to have said that 'America is the leader of the Western World - of which South Africa is a part - and America, like South Africa is strongly anti-Communist.

"Fortunately, for Mr. Vorster, he never finds himself in some 'hot seat' where he can be relentlessly cross-examined. "If Dr. Kissinger is the apotheosis of American anti-Communism, how would Mr. Vorster explain Kissinger's role in negotiating the Paris "peace treaty" which resulted in the total American betrayal of South Vietnam? Does he know, or can he explain the undeniable truth that without massive technical and financial assistance, not to mention massive exports of wheat, Soviet Communism would have collapsed years and years ago?

"It is just as well for the Prime Minister that not one of his audience of 3000 would have dared to step out of line and ask one awkward question'. Politically, those 3000 are deaf and dumb - and blind: most of them share a state of ignorance and mental confusion, otherwise they would notice some of the awkward facts, which do manage to slip into the newspapers, and they would begin to worry and ask questions.

"Theirs is the most incurable of all forms of dumb stupefaction - that which is accompanied by a feeling of exultant 'solidarity' in the presence of a political leader. . . . Once assured that 'all is well', they are totally immune to news which others might find disturbing - like the news that Marxist Tanzania was to be Kissinger's first port of call, and that there is hardly one Black group which he will consult that has not already established strong ties with Moscow - like SWAPO, which had a delegation in Moscow only last month!

Agent of' "Peace"
"So, what is the truth about Kissinger? There is massive evidence to support the contention that he is as much an agent of the Soviet Union as he is an agent of the so-called anti-Communist West. With such a person helping us to 'solve the problems of Southern Africa' the Communists need have no anxieties about the future! No, surprisingly, they don't intervene. They just leave it to Kissinger." (end of British On Target article.)
