2 November 1979. Thought for the Week: "...a collectivity has no moral standards of its own, and invariably reflects the lowest morals of its constituent".
AUSTRALIA A "SELFISH AND RACIST NATION"?
Senator Sim, Chairman of the Senate Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and Defence, said in Melbourne last Friday, October 26th, that Australia is regarded in Asia as "a selfish and racist nation". Speaking at the opening of a three-day seminar by the Australian Institute of International Affairs, Senator Sim urged that Australia adopt a "more liberal trade" policy. Foreign Minister Andrew Peacock has been urging a similar policy.
The promoters of the drive towards the World State, one of the first major steps being the "New International Economic Order", are in the main advocates of "free trade", starting with "Common Markets" inside which all nations lose the right to attempt to protect their local industries through tariffs. The campaign for a "common market" between Australia and New Zealand is part of the overall campaign now directed towards establishing a "Pacific Common Market". Inside this type of centralised organisation large segments of Australian manufacturing industry would be phased out. It should also be noted that the Common Market concept means free movement of people.
Senator Sim is right when he says that Asians question Australia's credibility when Australian political leaders criticise European Economic Community protection policies while at the same time Australia applies protection policies against Asia's "labor intensive, law technology imports". But the mounting international trade war is the result of internal financial policies, which force nations to try to solve their lack of adequate purchasing power by exporting more than is imported.
The famous London Chamber of Commerce Report
of 1942, "Solving the Problems of International Trade", said, "It is
an obvious absurdity that nations should regard it as necessary to export
their real wealth, not for the purpose of paying for imports, but in
order to solve their domestic unemployment problem by passing it on
to other countries."
The informed Marxists understand this issue clearly and for that reason have every confidence that the industrialised nations will continue to export to them on credit in an attempt to make their own economies work. That great apostle of "free enterprise", Mrs. Margaret Thatcher of the United Kingdom, welcomes the Chinese Communist leader Chairman Hua, and forces the Queen to entertain yet another criminal, primarily for the purpose of trying to increase her nation's exports to China. Under present financial policies nations like Australia can neither co-operate constructively with their Asian neighbours nor can they free themselves from progressive entanglement with the Communists.
THE CREATION OF RACIAL PROBLEMS
Large numbers of well meaning people can be readily organised to devote enormous effort to dealing with the EFFECTS of the deepening world crisis while steadfastly refusing to devote a fraction of the same effort to removing the CAUSES RESPONSIBLE. We hasten to admit that a major part of the problem is that those responsible for the EFFECTS make every effort to ensure that CAUSES are not publicised.
As we have said before, every civilised person
must feel for the people of Kampuchea, for the "boat" people and other
victims of Communist totalitarianism in both Vietnam and Kampuchea.
But the tragedy is that irrespective of how much humanitarian effort
is made, the basic CAUSE of the tragedy will remain - unless the policy
makers of the Free World decide that the time has come to apply economic
sanctions to the whole Communist world.
We have previously reported on some disturbing
aspects of the exploitation of the "boat people" from Vietnam. In a
report in the Canadian "On Target" of October 15th, Mr. Patrick
Walsh, well known former under cover agent for the Royal Canadian Mounted
Police, provides the following information:
Erna Koffman, in her book 'The Big Rip-Off',
lists Adelman as a member of the board of trustees of the notorious
Rochdale College (Toronto), a publicly funded haven for perverts and
drug addicts until shut down after prolonged public protest. Also, in
the appendix to this book, Adelman is listed as a member of the Jewish
Labour Committee, which is the Jewish wing of the Communist Party".
Writing in the September 1974 issue of "The
Scientific American", Kingsley Davis, the prominent American sociologist
and demographer, said: "As a result of the displacement and mixing of
races there are more racial problems in the world today than at any
time in the past."
W.A. LIBERAL MHR URGES TAX CUTSFollowing his recent strong support for recognition of Zimbabwe-Rhodesia, Mr. Peter Drummond, Federal Liberal Member for Forrest, W.A., has come out in favour of significant tax cuts to stimulate the economy. The Albany Advertiser of October 16th quotes Mr. Drummond as having tabled a study paper in. the Federal Parliament where the famous "Proposition 13" reduced a State property tax by more than half with considerable benefits. Mr. Drummond said, "Politicians in all Western countries have been slow to realise that tax reduction is not only popular, but makes for sound government."
No doubt members of the active Forrest Electors' Association will congratulate Mr. Drummond on his stand. We believe that more Federal Members feel as Mr. Drummond does but what they need is support. The taxation issue can be elevated into a major national question with sufficient electoral activity.
Delivering last week's electoral talk to Wannon
on behalf of Prime Minister Fraser, Federal Treasurer Howard said that
"the throat of Government's policies was to lower the tax burden. This
is the cornerstone of Liberal philosophy...."
Deputy Prime Minister Doug Anthony said in Dubbo, NSW last weekend that the Federal Coalition is stronger than it has ever been in his political career and that the parties wanted to continue the arrangements "which have resulted in effective Government and leadership since the early 1950's". This "effective Government" paved the way for the Labor-socialist victory in 1972. 1979 could see the same result.
