26 August 1983. Thought for the Week: "There is no surer indication of misdirection in the affairs of any country than a continuous rise in the cost of living which, it should be borne in mind, includes the involuntary losses of the individual in taxes, rates, and extortions, as well as direct expenditure. The idea that high taxation prevents inflation is ignorance or worse."
C. H. Douglas
THE LAST NAIL IN THE COFFIN
New Cash-Payments Tax Hammers the Small
The new scheme applies to jobs costing more than $10,000; the onus will be on the person paying for the work to report same to the Department of Taxation (obviously jobs costing, say $12,000, will be "fiddled" to make them something like $9,950!). These jobs won't be reported to any Taxation Department, and will pass through the "net". As far as we can ascertain, there will be chaos in the building and contracting industries. All sorts of snags and hindrances will erupt: interruptions to cash flows, as payments must be made to the Department on a monthly basis. Many contractors will have to hire extra accounting staff to administer the intricacies of taxation matters, and this is an aspect of the burden of general business that is, in the main, overlooked, viz., the cost of employing staff in the private sector to administer government business (payroll tax, sales tax, workers' compensation, insurances, etc.)
It is clear that many small businesses will be unable to bear the extra financial pressures, and will collapse, throwing thousands more unemployed onto social security. As debt pressures force up the Commonwealth Deficit; force up inflation; force up interest rates, force up this, force up that: the various governments, including local government, must squeeze, and squeeze, and squeeze, to wring that last dollar from the community as we all edge nearer and nearer to a financial disaster.
STANDING TO BE COUNTED
Regular readers should not need to be
told that events are now moving with tremendous rapidity.
Australia is now in the type of revolutionary situation the
League has long predicted was a certainty under policies rooted
in a philosophy of centralism. The economic and constitutional
crisis must deepen. Defence in depth was never more essential.
The League of Rights has planned for that type of defence.
But it needs the support of every member, supporter and sympathiser.
Because of the situation, the League's 1983 National Weekend
will be the most vital in the League's long history. "The
chips are down" and this is the moment to stand to be counted
on the side of freedom.
One of Australia's finest natural leaders, Victorian RSL President, Bruce Ruxton O.B.E., will be the guest of honour. There will be the usual outstanding panel of speakers to present the various toasts. A "full house" is essential. Tickets are $16 each and must be paid for in advance. Guests may indicate if they have any seating preferences.
On Saturday, October 1st, also at The
Victoria, the League's Annual National Seminar will deal with
the constitutional revolution. One of the panel of speakers
will be Mrs. Babette Francis, the brilliant representative
of those "Women Who Want to be Women. Both with pen and on
the media Babette Francis has proved more than a match for
the Senator Susan Ryans and other trendy feminists. Babette
Francis will be dealing with one of the most horrendous proposals
ever to be threatened against Australians, men and women,
the UN convention concerning the abolition of all forms of
discrimination against women.
Accredited actionists only will gather
for the all day National Action Seminar on Sunday, October
2nd, starting with a short non-denominational, Divine service.
Reports will be presented from all round Australia. Mr. Peter
Nixon, Editor of "Heritage" will be presenting an exciting
and encouraging picture of what is happening on the Heritage
front. There will be reports from State and Regional Directors.
Mr. Robert Nixon, W.A. State Director, the only person in
Australian history who has challenged the Taxation Department
on the subject of funding abortion on demand. Mr. Nixon claims
that, as a Christian, his taxes should not be used to finance
what he regards as immoral.
LET'S SHARE AUSTRALIA IN LOVE AND PEACE
This is the title of a brochure, which
is being given mass distribution by the "Commission for World
Mission", an agency of the Uniting Church in Australia. The
brochure is authorised by the Rev. John Brown, and the Rev.
R. F. Wooton, of the above body. Both these names are well
known to us. We cannot pretend to be theologians, of course.
However, we do very much question the "theology" of some of
the bald statements and assertions set out in this Uniting
Mr. Peter Robinson, commenting in The SunHerald (Sydney, August 21st) doesn't pull his punches. He said that the "sophisticated southern media try to portray Premier Joh Bjelke-Petersen as a clown, but "the true clown up there in Queensland is the new Liberal leader - Terry White." Mr. Robinson correctly states that no government could accept a man who voted with the Opposition. We expect the Liberals to suffer electorally at the forthcoming Queensland State election.
A man to watch on the Australian political
stage is Queensland's new Deputy Liberal leader, Mr. Angus
Innes, although he is certainly backing a lost cause (at least
in the immediate future) in backing Mr. Terry White against
the Premier of Queensland. However, nothing stands still in
the political arena. Leaving Britain at the age of 16, he
"went it" alone through Scandinavia, Europe and Asia Minor.
He was in Malaysia during the emergency as an Army lieutenant;
then ended up in the Northern Territory police as a detective.
Then a law course at the University of Queensland; then politics.
"Right now there are groups of United Nations bureaucrats working on agreements, protocols, or conventions on food, traffic, health, and land ownership." "If there is to be a momentous change to our Constitution it should not depend on the particular attitude of one High Court judge. It should be done by all Australians after hearing the arguments put to them fairly by all views." We couldn't agree more.
