6 October 1978. Thought for the Week: "For a long time, certain political parties have made a play of opposing centralisation. They paid lip service at any rate, to the idea that centralised power was inimical to individual freedom. But their one time ardor has died away, and the objectives have been watered down to a point where the differences between all parties in the political spectrum are superficial indeed. This is true not only of Australia, but of all English speaking nations. More and more the survival of the very parliamentary system itself is under question."
Jeremy Lee, in the Introduction to his "Upon that Mountain".
FRASER GOVERNMENT IN RETREAT
The significance of the Fraser Government's back down on a part of its Budget should not be minimised. The Werriwa by-election result demonstrated to the Government that the growing tax revolt was deeply rooted and that it could not be ignored. As we have persistently stressed the Achilles Heel of the Fraser Government is its big majority. The backbench Members have been feeling the growing pressure from the electorate, and now that they have demonstrated that they can force some concessions from a Cabinet, which claimed it would not be shifted, they are going to increase the pressure as they see the electoral stocks of the Government progressively sinking. At this time it is most important that electors increase their pressure.
Last week also saw Prime Minister Fraser changing his "tack" on the unemployment issue. The man, who dogmatically promised before the last elections that unemployment would progressively fall this year, now concedes that unemployment will be a major problem into next year. He has endorsed the frank estimates of Minister Tony Street. When questioned on his pre-election promises in the light of what he is now saying, Mr. Fraser again demonstrated that he could rarely bring himself to admit that he has misled electors. He claims that unemployment has in fact fallen, but unfortunately not fast enough!
The truth is that Malcolm Fraser's star is now waning and that unless he can bring himself to reverse his finance economic strategy his own colleagues will be forced to revolt if they wish to survive the next Federal elections. We are encouraged by the developments of last week and congratulate that dedicated army of actionists who have made their contribution towards producing these developments.
MR. DOUG ANTHONY AND THE NEW INTERNATIONAL ECONOMIC ORDER
"The W.A. Premier, Sir Charles Court, is fiercely opposing moves by the Deputy Prime Minister, Mr. Anthony, to centralise iron ore marketing to Japan. The Age, (Melbourne) September 30th.
The nub of the issue is that Sir Charles Court
accused Mr. Anthony of attempting to get control of iron ore marketing
through a cartel arrangement run from Canberra. We really doubt if either
Sir Charles Court or Mr. Anthony understand the full implications of
the basis of their disagreement. Mr. Anthony probably feels that the
hard-nosed Japanese price negotiators can be more effectively dealt
with if faced by a single Australian pricing Authority for iron ore,
or any other commodity. If dealing with a number of price sources, the
Japanese steel mills, acting in unison, can pick one price source off
against another to the disadvantage of Australia. That's Mr. Anthony's
Beyond all this
there is a design, and Mr. Anthony and Sir Charles Court are working
towards it, probably unconsciously. International Finance is inherently
centralising, as are the operations of International Finance; mineral
exploitation being one such operation. Complete local (i.e. Australian)
control is necessary before the control of any essential commodity,
such as iron ore, is relinquished to international control: this is
in line with the plan (plot) for the New International Economic Order.
MR. HAMER CLINGS TO THE EIGHTEENTH CENTURY
"It was wrong to think of automation as a destroyer of jobs, the Premier, Mr. Hamer, said last night: The Sun (Melbourne) October 2nd.
If automation does not reduce ever-escalating
costs in manufacture by replacing labour, then what is the point of
it? Many "economists of repute" still cling to the silly myth that automation
creates more jobs than it displaces. Mr. Hamer mentioned in support
of his view the First Industrial Revolution, which did drive countless
thousands of men and women from a slow rural life into monstrous factories;
children also. But at that time, Britain was the "factory of the world",
with a world market!
Automation does not, repeat not, create more jobs than it displaces. The reverse is the case: automation severely reduces the requirement for human labour in the overall manufacturing processes. But we fear that Man, as usual, will have to learn the hard way.

Upper Class Bolshevism
The Media Slant
Australian League of Rights supporters will have no difficulty in picking up the same media 'pre-judgment' technique in our own media. Where there's smoke there's fire; more often than not this practice will be pushed by Leftists buried in the media, and is a valuable "signal" to spot.
WORLD COUNCIL OF CHURCHES PERVERTS CHRISTIANITY
A black African priest made the final indictment
of the World Council of Churches in Melbourne on Friday. The Sun
(Melbourne) Sept. 30, reports that the Rev. Solomon Muthukya, of Kenya,
said that money given by the Council to guerillas in Rhodesia was being
used to kill innocent people.
Since 1970 the Patriotic Front in Rhodesia has
received about $l.5m from the W.C.C., and has more than 2,500 black
civilian deaths to it's credit, with a bizarre tally of 37 Christian
missionaries or their family members. Since the last $72,000 donated
by the Council to the Patriotic Front, a Council spokesman claimed that
it would be used for "...food, health, social, educational and agricultural
Air Marshal Sir Valston Hancock (RAAF) makes the following observation: "Any student of military operations knows that if some kind donor provided essential logistic support such as food, clothing, medical supplies, then this releases funds for the acquisition of military weapons." The Christian's final sanction is, of course, to withhold the W.C.C. blood money.
BRIEF COMMENTSThree hearty cheers for that courageous Queensland Senator, Glen Sheil, who last week used a Commonwealth Parliamentary function in Kingston, Jamaica, to speak out for South Africa and Rhodesia. Acting Foreign Minister, Mr. Ian Sinclair, immediately rushed in to bitterly attack Senator Sheil. Mouthing the usual humbug for which he is noted, Mr. Sinclair sought to placate those who create " world opinion", by claiming that Australia's opposition to apartheid and support for majority rule in Rhodesia was well known. Mr. Sinclair had the effrontery to claim that Senator Sheil's views were rejected "by the overwhelming majority of the Australian people."
We challenge Mr. Sinclair to substantiate that absurd statement. We venture to predict that Senator Sheil will be remembered as a courageous Australian long after the Sinclairs, the lickspittles of the international power groups planning the "New International Economic Order", have been swept from the Australian political scene.
