5 June 1981. Thought for the Week: "In the empire of lies, the humblest truth is revolutionary".
THE REVOLUTION MOVES FORWARD
Recent Australian political convulsions starting with the resignation of Andrew Peacock from Prime Minister Fraser's Cabinet, followed by the open confrontation between the Commonwealth Government and the States, and now the resignation of Premier Richard Hamer of Victoria and N.S.W. Liberal Leader Mason, should be seen for what they are: the movement of political flotsam reflecting the deeper revolutionary currents beneath.
The broad movement of those currents can now be seen clearly for those willing to look beneath the surface of party political ferment. The disintegration of the Hamer Government of Victoria, generally regarded as the bulwark of the Liberal Party in Australia, typifies the failure of "anti-Socialist" governments everywhere to provide any answers to the mounting finance economic crisis, thus paving the way for the election of declared Socialist Governments. If, as now appears certain, a Labor Government is elected at the next Victorian elections, it will contain some of the most dangerous Marxists in Australia.
Only some unforeseen developments can
now prevent the Wran Labor Government not only surviving the
next N.S.W. State elections, but actually increasing its majority.
Both in Victoria and N.S.W. the declared Socialists will be
aided by the policies of the Fraser Government, including
its "new Federalism." The essence of Mr. Fraser's strategy
is to force the States to increase their taxes and charges
while claiming that he is working towards reducing taxation.
Regular readers of this newsletter know that we have consistently warned that Mr. Howard's "fight" against inflation was lost before it even started. The inflation rate must creep upwards with all the far-reaching consequences. Unless the State Governments are prepared to challenge the financial policies of Canberra, they are doomed to keep on imposing increased charges and taxes which will eventually lead to the eventual loss of the powers they still possess.
The late Prime Minister Ben Chifley,
the man who openly attempted to consolidate the credit monopoly
by nationalising the banks has been proved right by events.
Chifley predicted that the very institutions, which talked
so strongly about the necessity for banking competition, were
themselves working towards eliminating monopoly by amalgamations.
Those who understand even the most elementary aspects of banking
and credit creation, must find it astonishing that the further
banking amalgamations are necessary on grounds of greater
A Government elected to halt the contribution of the Whitlam Government to revolution, has in five short years made its predecessor look conservative. And Mr. Bill Hayden and his advisers, who sense what is taking place, are now carefully trimming their sails to exploit the turbulent winds created by Prime Minister Fraser, and his colleagues, to carry them forward. But replacing Mr. Fraser with Mr. Peacock, Mr. Peacock with Mr. Hayden, or Mr. Hawke, will make no basic difference to the mounting revolution. Only a new type of politics, with responsible action by electors, and a challenge to the policies, which have produced the revolution, can set the ship of State on a different course.
THE 'NO-PLEDGE' PLEDGE
"The (Federal) Government had no intention of limiting public access to vitamins and minerals as dietary supplements, Senator Peter Baume said in the Senate yesterday." The Australian, May 30th. Well, this sounds fine; but the Senator went on to "qualify" his statement with the words - "There would be no firm proposals on vitamins and minerals for one or two years (our emphasis)." Does this mean, really, "until the dopey electors go back to sleep again?" If so, the good Senator will probably find that the electors are more astute than he perhaps imagines. With this in mind, we republish the following letter, which appeared in The Age (Melbourne), June 1st:
The vitamin and mineral human rights
battle (The Age, May 16th.) is not merely a battle
between two opposing views on health care. "It is primarily
a human rights issue. It is about the right of users of vitamins
and minerals to continue to care for their health in the way
they do at present. They believe our environment and other
factors cause severe deficiencies in health. These require
a different approach to health care than that available from
conventional sources. It is a basic human right that they
should be allowed to continue to follow this belief and to
care for their health as they see fit.
WHAT IS 'DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISM'
The Federal Opposition Leader, Mr. Hayden, yesterday urged the Labor Party to stand by its democratic socialism. But Mr. Hayden talks about "a mixed economy of public and private ventures". He also talks about the A.L.P.'s "reaffirmed" objective of "a classless society". With respect to the "classless society"; it's a myth. After more than sixty years of glorious socialist revolution in Russia, anyone who has lived under it will testify that the class divisions there in the Communist hierarchy are most sharply defined socialist objective." - The Sun (Melbourne), June 1st.
We have never seen the phrase "democratic socialism" well defined. Mr. Hayden talks of the "socialisation of production, distribution, and exchange" to eliminate exploitation and other anti-social features." These socialisation objectives are embedded in Karl Marx's "Communist Manifesto" of 1848. Quite obviously, if production, and distribution, and exchange (credit, money) are to be "in the hands of the State", then those who control "the State" are "the State": meaning that the vast majority of the citizens of the State actually lose most of the control over their own affairs.
We are unable to view this state of affairs as "democratic". But Mr. Hayden talks about the A.L.P.'s "reaffirmed" objective of a classless society are an impossibility because people naturally fall into classes because of the type of people they are. It's in the nature of things. Experience shows that a Socialist government "naturally" squeezes "private ventures" during the brief period when public and private enterprise are allowed to coexist. This "coexistence "ceases after a government, committed to Socialism, gains full power over "production, distribution, and exchange." Again, quite obviously, private ventures can be squeezed out by the withdrawal of bank overdraft facilities by the State banking monopoly. Until someone comes up with a definition which will stand up to close scrutiny, we will continue to regard "democratic socialism" as a political myth to befuddle and deceive most well meaning people.
"The Australian Jewish News" (May 22nd)
quotes Mr. Isi Liebler, Zionist spokesman, as stating in a
recent address that "secular and political anti-semitism today
is worse than the religious based anti-semitism of former
times." Mr. Liebler went on to say that it was paradoxical
that contrary to Theodor Herzl's predictions, Israel today
represents the main basis for an orchestrated international
resurgence of anti-semitism.
A Fitzroy (Vic.) actionist has brought
our attention to several Morgan Gallup Poll findings over
the past year, and we were most interested to see these. Some
are: "U.S. Planes Welcome Here" (published October 1980);
"Majority Favour Union Jack In our Flag" (published December
1979): "First Past Post Voting Favoured" (published September
1980): "Have Military Training for Women Too?"(published February
