17 December 1976. Thought for the Week: "It is quite beyond
all reasonable doubt, now, that there is in existence a World Government,
still largely occult, but discernible in its manifestations: 'a compact
organisation, almost impossible to identify completely, possibly controlled
at the top by something the Churches call Satan.'
This is a matter, which those theologians who have not substituted
social 'science' for Christian theology might well take seriously.
The Gospels bear witness as much to the existence of Satan as to the
divinity of Christ; by their fruits shall ye know them."
AN UNHOLY ALLIANCE
There is an old saying that one should not look a gift horse in the mouth. This is how we felt when we read that ACTU President R. Hawke had put forward a proposal that if the Government would reduce indirect taxation, thus reducing the price of many basic items in the economy, then it could be possible to persuade wage earners to agree to a halt in wage increases.
A number of business leaders agreed that the Hawke approach to inflation had merit. But Prime Minister Fraser made it clear that he could not accept the Hawke proposals. Much as he would like to reduce taxation, which he admits is far too high, he was concerned about the Government's deficit. The Prime Minister's obsession about the deficit prevents him from seeing that unless he can reduce financial costs, he has no hope of averting even worse disasters than those of the past twelve months. And the Government's failure is the Marxists' delight.
The most significant reaction to the Hawke proposals came from the Marxists, who lost no time in organising in the Trade Unions to oppose the proposals. There was a type of unholy alliance between Prime Minister Fraser and Communists like Mr. John Halfpenny in rejecting the Hawke anti-inflation policy. The Marxists reject any policy which will start to move Australia off the disaster course on which it is now moving.
When the Queensland Premier, Mr. J. Bjelke-Petersen,
first outlined in 1974 what later came to be known as the "Petersen
Plan", the Marxists immediately sensed danger and used their influence
either to have the "Petersen Plan" denigrated or given the silent treatment.
They have been assisted, unconsciously, by the stupidity of many Government
supporters. And by the stiff necked attitude of those who lack the humility
to admit that they might have learned something from the Queensland
Irrespective of what he does under present financial policies, Mr. Fraser is doomed to preside over increasing economic and social disintegration while he adheres to those policies. But he doggedly keeps on insisting that his policies are succeeding, although recent appeals to the nation indicate a feeling of desperation.
In an address heavily laced with rhetoric, Mr. Fraser issued a type of SOS in Parliament on Tuesday of last week, December 9th. Australians were urged to pull together without any specific advice on how this was to be done. Although insisting once again that the Government's measures "have been the right ones" Mr. Fraser then said "the Government cannot do it alone. In the battle against inflation any Government needs the support of all Australians. We need to find a national will and determination to overcome inflation."
All the will and hard work in the world will not, of themselves reverse inflation. Continuing inflation is a mathematical certainty under financial policies, which generate increasing debt and crushing taxation.
NO PROGRESS AT GENEVA
After a brief return to the Geneva talks on Rhodesia, Rhodesian Prime Minister Ian Smith went back to Rhodesia after observing that no progress had been made. Upon his return to Geneva Mr. Smith had warned that the Geneva Conference would have to be adjourned if it rejected an agreement he had made with Dr. Henry Kissinger.
Before leaving Geneva Mr. Smith said that "We have to get away from the rarified atmosphere here where the black nationalist delegation leaders are using the conference as a public gallery."
From London comes the report that Dr. Kissinger was taking an active interest in the Rhodesian question and had received Mr. Mark Chona representing President Kaunda of Zambia. Rhodesia is a major factor in the Soviet's strategy for Southern Africa. 150 delegates from 60 countries, including the Soviet Union, met in Ethiopia late in October for a two-day conference in support of the struggle in Southern Africa. The Soviet delegate at the conference, Fifryat Tabeyev, a member of the Supreme Soviet Preasidium, told the conference that the destruction of South Africa would be a major contribution towards international "peace".
Rhodesia obviously must go first. Every form of international pressure is being applied to this little country, with the terrorists now playing a major role. Mr. Robert Mugabe, self-proclaimed Marxist and leading figure at the Geneva talks, is now a major international revolutionary figure. When he visited Dublin in May of this year he was warmly welcomed by leaders of the Provisional I.R.A. He was then taken to Belfast to meet I.R.A. terrorists. He now figures prominently in I.R.A. revolutionary literature circulated by the Provisional I.R.A.
According to a contributor to the British "On Target" of December 4th, "a 15 strong training unit of the I.R.A. is at present in Mozambique giving fraternal weapons training and instruction on how to turn an African bush war into the kind of guerrilla struggle that will be required, if the sophisticated and industrialised white dominated nations of Southern Africa are to be brought to their knees."
In the meantime the Rhodesians are holding on, their troops, both black and white hitting the terrorists hard. The cold-blooded killing of Roman Catholic clergy has shaken a number of starry-eyed Christians. The major question now is whether the non-Communist world can come to an understanding of the reality of the Rhodesian issue and take action while there is time. The information in this item might well be sent to Federal Members of Parliament.
THE PLUMS OF POLITICAL OFFICEIn a country as potentially wealthy as Australia, where it is physically possible for all to enjoy abundance and freedom, no one would mind if former Prime Ministers received a just reward for their services. But was Mr. John Gorton such a boon to Australia that he should cost the taxpayers over $44,000 a year? Mr. W. McMahon, who has talked more sense out of office than when in it, was Prime Minister for only 21 months. He was hardly a big success story, but he gets a fully equipped office in Sydney, has a personal staff of three, three official telephones at various centres, his own car and regular driver, free postage for official purposes and full travel facilities and access to official cars for his wife. Last year Mr. McMahon' s privileges as a former Prime Minister cost the taxpayers $129,760. This is on top of what he receives as an M.P.
Those who have read the Crown Commonwealth League
of Rights report to the 1976 World Anti-Communist League Conference,
"A Programme for Halting the Financing of Economic Blood Transfusions
to the Communists" ($1 posted) are familiar with the building of
the Kama River truck factory by Western industrial organisations, the
credit being provided by the American Export-Import Bank and David Rockefeller's
Chase Manhattan Bank. Truck production is now under way with all trucks
going to the Red Army. The official daily publication of the Red Army,
"Red Star", has published a number of photographs of the trucks
loaded with cannons and other military equipment.
The recently signed agreement between Thailand and Malaysia, to combine to clean out Communist insurgents along the 363 mile Thai-Malaysia border, has been warmly received throughout South-East Asia. Contrary to the assurances given to Prime Minister Fraser in China earlier this year, Communist terrorists throughout South-East Asia are supported by Peking. They have stepped up their activities since the fall of South Vietnam. The dense jungle along the Thai-Malaysia border has long provided cover for the Communist terrorists. The joint anti-Communist action by Thailand and Malaysia stems primarily from the change of Government in Thailand.
"Border talks" between Peking and Moscow, indicate
possible changes in their relationships. Hua Kuo-feng still criticises
Soviet "revisionism" but it is clear that he is seeking Moscow's support
for his position, which is far from completely secure internally. Hua
has openly indicated that he favours an increased flow of American technology,
which he hopes would lead to early American diplomatic recognition.
