11 June 1982. Thought for the Week: "Men do wrong to lament the flight of time, complaining that it passes too quickly, and failing to perceive that its period is sufficiently long; but a good memory, with which nature has endowed us, causes everything that is long past to appear to us to be present."
Leonardo da Vinci.
LIBERAL PARTY IN DISARRAY
Having made his trip to save the world, Prime
Minister Fraser returned to Australia warning that Australia
would be hit by the effects of a deeper world recession unless
"corrective action" was taken.
While Mr. Fraser was jetting abroad,
growing rumbles inside the Liberal Party burst into the open
with a stinging attack on the party by a leading Wimmera (Victoria)
official of the Liberal Party, Mr. Lamshed, who has been on
Mr. Fraser's Wannon campaign committee for the past eight
years. Mr. Lamshed, in what can only be construed as an attack
on Mr. Malcolm Fraser, said it was time for the Federal and
State Liberal parties to "shed their silver tail image and
get out of their ivory tower."
According to "The Wimmera Mail Times"
of May 21st, Mr. Lamshed said that it had "become patently
obvious in federal and state arenas of the Liberal Party ministries
that the good "yes" boys have received portfolios they could
not handle. Some of them had become ministers despite limited
Commenting on the Lamshed criticism, "The Wimmera Mail Times" in its editorial of May 24th, said, "Australia is a wonderful country, a rich country. It has the potential to be great, given time and wise leadership. But, at the moment, it is still small fry in the world power game, and instead of flitting around the world at taxpayers' expense on some global strategy exercise which is unlikely to cause cold shivers in the Kremlin, our leaders would be better employed returning to good old Aussie gravel and mud, trying to grapple with the nitty-gritty of workaday life in factory, farm and kitchen."
We agree completely. One of Australia's
"nitty-gritty" issues is housing. Tens of thousands of young
Australians and some not so young - are finding it impossible
to build their own homes, primarily because of crippling interest
rates. Others have to sacrifice their standard of living in
an endeavour to meet interest payments on their mortgages.
Government supporters should be challenged to say why a worldwide
depression should prevent Australians from using their own
vast resources to build all the homes required.
THE TAX EVASION IMBROGLIO
Households were paying an extra $35 a week tax to subsidise tax dodgers, the Opposition Leader, Mr. Hayden, claimed yesterday." - The Age, (Melbourne) June 7th.
We think that this is nonsense. Treasury types can flaunt sheaves of papers - carrying columns of figures to "prove" that if only everybody would pay the tax that some bureaucrats think they should then everyone else would pay less tax. This is the same line of thinking which has it that "the poor are poor because the rich are rich": there is a set, finite, amount of money in circulation - hence so-called tax evaders are "robbing" those who pay their taxes; mostly pay-as-you- earn taxpayers, who have no opportunity to pay less tax, let alone any prospect of "evading" tax.
The rejoinder the so-called tax evaders
can throw in the faces of the ridiculously overpaid mediocrities,
who are a burden on Australia's political purse, is that many,
many, millions of dollars are being thrown away by way of
"aid" to the Third World when there is much social and economic
distress at home. Australians are in need of aid - some urgently:
social services are often inadequate.
We don't suggest that the Department, nor the Government itself, considers that the policy of bringing to Australia large numbers of European unassimilables, and opening our doors to large numbers of Asians, is subversive: but there are the promoters of these policies, here and particularly abroad (e.g. in the United Nations), who well know that such policies are subversive, as they will foment social frictions within our country.
The concealed promoters of these policies
know it, but the politicians and top bureaucrats don't know
it; or if some really do know it, then they won't be drawn
out of their silence for fear of "exposure" in the mass media.
Intimidation is the word for it. Organisations, which point
out the inherent dangers in such policies, are vilified. One
observer stated some years ago that the mass media have separated
the commonalty (the man and woman in the street) from reality.
We were relieved to read in The Age (June 7th) that Mr. Brian Shaw, Q.C., stated, "the broad line of attack against lawyers who advise tax avoiders, could end in a fundamental pillar of democracy being undermined." Mr. Brian Shaw is Chairman of the Bar Council. He went on to say that people have rights, and our system depends on people being able to discover what their rights are, and to exercise them. The point he made is that lawyers should be free to advise people of 'their rights: to advise criminals of their rights, and similarly to advise clients in financial matters'. This has wrongly been labeled "tax evasion".
Another prominent Melbourne barrister, Mr. S.E.K. Hulme, Q.C., said that while he has no brief to tax avoidance..."I have been sickened in the past week to see people, who have done nothing illegal, being exposed to criticism and contempt in the public pillory of Parliament, Press and Television."
An even more dangerous principle is that of punitive provisions in legislation. This just means having declared, by law, a practice that was not illegal one year ago, to be illegal now, and for yesterday's new "crime" to be an offence NOW. This really is infamous practice on the part of government, and as such would eventually destroy all confidence in Law. It smacks not only of the Kremlin, but also of 1984!
Our Prime Minister is already "floating" Government action on retrospectivity of taxation legislation in order to punish by heavy fines those people who "avoided" (legally) the payment of taxation in the past. Once such a heinous legislative practice is adopted by a government, the disintegration of the society governed is considerably brought forward.
Washington, D.C. is obviously under intense pressure from Latin America (In the U.N.) to desist from support of Britain in her struggle with Argentina in the Falklands. Alexander Haig, the American Secretary of State (Foreign Minister) has called Lord Carrington a "duplicitous bastard"; we can't bring ourselves to dispute that. Equally we have no faith in Alexander Haig. He will sell out Britain at the drop of a hat. The American administration is trying to wear two hats: one for Britain and N.A.T.O.; the other for Latin America. Washington has entangled itself so much in the affairs of other countries that it is finding it nearly impossible to adhere to any firm policy. This, in turn, is brought about by finance/economic involvement here, there, and everywhere. All the various lobbies are squeezing Washington.
The Filipino brides campaign isn't all roses. Increasing numbers of young Filipino women are seeking help from women's refuges, and many of the marriages were failing because of cultural differences. (The Age, Melbourne, June 7th). Al Grassby please note. The Korean Super-Con, "Rev." Moon of the Moonies, dictates who shall marry whom within the Moon Movement. Over 90% of such "marriages" are mixed race relationships. "Rev." Moon might get the heave-ho from the U.S.A.
We are getting a new "pitch" on the resources boom. Now that nobody can find it. Mr. Walter Shipley, President of the Chemical Bank of New York, paid us a recent visit to inform us that, yes, there is a boom, but, "recent 'trends' (about which no one can do anything!) in both the Australian and world economies have caused a major reassessment (whacko!) of the extremely optimistic forecast of a resource boom that circulated over the past two years. We were all wrong. This is now the correct pitch: "the investment in resources will be spread more evenly over the next two decades rather than compressed into one or two short periods of hectic activity as was expected in the so-called resources boom." We are so glad to have the final, true picture, but we are incurably old fashioned, and will believe it all when we see it.

The Bairnsdale (Vic.) Council passed
a motion to be submitted for inclusion on the agenda of the
Annual Conference of the Gippsland Municipalities Association,
which was held at Warragul on May 7th. (The motion was lost).
"The question that has to be considered,
therefore, is, if private banking corporations are in the
business of manufacturing money, why is it that the Government,
representing the people, of this State has to borrow from
private sources, when it should be issuing its own credits?
Does it, or does it not have that power?
