8 July 1983. Thought for the Week: "No method of procedure has ever been devised by which liberty could be divorced from self-government. No plan of centralisation has ever been adopted which did not result in bureaucracy, tyranny, inflexibility, reaction and decline . Unless bureaucracy is constantly resisted it breaks down representative Government, and overwhelms democracy. It is the one element in our institutions that sets up the pretence of having authority over everybody and being responsible to nobody."
U.S.A. President Calvin Coolidge (1926)
TEARING UP THE CONSTITUTION
By Eric D. Butler
It is nearly 50 years now since Australia's Attorney General, Dr. H.V.Evatt, friend and admirer of the famous Marxist theoretician, Dr.Harold Laski, suggested that it was possible to extend the power of the Federal Government over the States by using the Charter of the United Nations. Backed by the Communists and many "useful innocents" Dr. Evatt had made his first major bid for centralised power during the Second World War. With the exception of the servicemen's vote, influenced by the Communist domination of the Army "educational" services, there was a massive NO vote in all parts of Australia at the 1944 referendum. Dr. Laski lamented the defeat of his friend Evatt's bid to tear up the Federal Constitution. Dr. Evatt made another, more limited attempt in 1946, but again did not achieve his objective.
Needless to say, Dr. Evatt s spiritual successor, Senator Gareth Evans with substantial support from another Evatt devotee, Mr. Justice Lionel Murphy, is delighted with the High Court decision. In typical Orwellian manner, the man who has worked to tear up a constitution, which sought to protect the individual against centralised power, now says he will bring down a Bill of Rights!
Not surprisingly, in the individual judgments
of the High Court decision last week, the strongest support
for the Federal power came from Mr. Justice Murphy. Mr. Justice
Murphy's 27-page statement is a classic exposition of the
philosophy of the World State. Mr. Murphy claims that preservation
of the "world heritage" should not be looked on in isolation
but as a part of a co-operation between nations ''calculated
to achieve intellectual and moral solidarity of mankind''.
This would, according to the learned judge, reinforce "the
bonds between people which promote 'peace' and displace those
of narrow nationalism and alienation which promote war".
Mr. Murphy indicates the shape of things
to come by going on to praise the work of the United Nations
Educational and Cultural Organisation, under whose auspices
the World Heritage Convention was created. UNESCO was encouraging
people to think internationally, to regard the culture of
their own country as part of world culture, to conceive a
physical, spiritual and intellectual world heritage
As the Nation reels under a revolution,
which has opened the way for the progressive extension of
centralised power, one might ask where are the so-called anti-Socialist
The first essential for the survival of an independent Australian Federation of Sovereign States, is that electors face the truth that there is no genuine anti-Socialist Opposition at Canberra and very little anywhere else. In his judgment last week, Mr. Justice Murphy confirmed the treacherous role of Mr. Malcolm Fraser in fostering the global programme for the World State. Mr. Murphy praised Mr. Fraser for having developed a ''national Conservation strategy which had adopted the three main objectives of 'living resource conservation' in the world conservation strategy. The Fraser Government played a major role in greasing the slip rails on which Mr. Gareth Evans, the Marxists, and other internationalists are now launching a major revolution against Australia.
QUEENSLAND'S STATE BANK
The National Party State President in
Queensland, Sir Robert Sparkes, has now issued an eleven-page
statement giving his reasons for opposing a State Bank. Many
would find his reasons far fetched and badly researched.
The National Secretary of the Institute of Economic Democracy, Mr. Jeremy Lee, has now written a booklet replying to Sir Robert's arguments, point-by-point, which is expected off the printing press by the end of July. Mr. Lee points out that Sir Robert Sparkes was advocating the provision of loan funds to primary producers affected by drought, low prices and rising costs "below 3%" in 1971. He asks how Sir Robert aims to achieve this admirable target?
Mr. Lee will be conducting a statewide tour throughout Queensland in August, speaking on "The State Bank and the Constitution." Details of dates and venues will appear in On Target shortly.
Sir Robert has been joined by the State
Treasurer, Dr. Edwards, who in a recent statement (Toowoomba
Chronicle, 16/6/83) claimed: "No State Bank could be
established in any State of Australia outside the Commonwealth
Banking Act. It is quite incredible to find a State Treasurer
and Party leader making such a claim.
A RED FIELD DAY
It can hardly be claimed the Communists are in
retreat under the Hawke Government. First comes the news that
Mr. Elliott Johnson Q.C. has been made a judge of the South
Australian Supreme Court. He will resign from the Communist
Party to take this position. Those who remember the courageous
Adelaide lady Mrs. Anne Neil, whose sensational exposures
of the Communist Party rocked many audiences in the late sixties,
will also recall that she worked closely with Elliott Johnson
during her eight years inside the Party as an agent for Australian
Security. Mrs. Neil set up several Communist Fronts in Adelaide,
which operated under close Soviet liason.
Secondly, comes this item from The National Times (June 24-30, '83) "A decision of the Security Appeals Tribunal has held that membership of the Communist Party of Australia is not in itself enough to bar access by a public servant to documents classified as "secret" by the Federal Government ... ASIO argued that the Communist Party of Australia and the Young Communist Movement were "subversive organisations, as defined in sections of the ASIO Act of 1979, which had flowed from recommendations by Justice Hope in his previous Royal Commission on intelligence in 1977. The definition of subversion in the Act covers "activities that involve, will involve or lead to or are intended or likely ultimately to involve or lead to the use of force or violence or other unlawful acts (whether by those persons or by others) for the purpose of overthrowing or destroying the constitutional government of the Commonwealth or of a State or of a Territory".
ASIO's submissions ... were rejected by the tribunal, presided over by Justice Samuels of the NSW Supreme Court. The tribunal said it was not satisfied that the CPA was a subversive organisation within the meaning of the Act... Hard on this decision, the A.B.C.'s "Nationwide" ran a programme whitewashing Australian Communists as "different" to Communists elsewhere in the world. So presumably we're expected to believe the Communist Party of Australia now has repudiated its own bible, "The Communist Manifesto", which concludes with these words: "The Communists distain to conceal their views and aims. They openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions. Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communist revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win."
