On Target

27 May 1966. Thought for the Week: "The animals decided to disarm, and held a conference for that purpose. The eagle, with an eye on the bull, suggested that all horns should be raised off. The bull, with a squint at the tiger, thought that all claws should be cut short. The tiger, glaring at the elephant, was of the opinion that tusks should be clipped. Whereupon the bear, with a circular glance at all his brethren, cried out: "Why all those half-way measures? Let all weapons be done away with, so that nothing remains in the way of a fraternal, all-embracing hug."
Salvador deMadariaga in his book, "The Blowing up of the Parthenon, or How to Lose the Cold War."

RHODESIA AND SOUTH AFRICA

Prior to Rhodesia's declaration of independence, it was South Africa, which bore the brunt of the international, socialist-communist attack. Since Rhodesian independence South Africa has been relatively unmolested, but there are now signs, that because of South Africa's support of Rhodesia, such as the South African refusal to be a link in the chain of trade and other sanctions, the heat is to be turned on once more on South Africa.

The opening shot in the new campaign, was fired by no other than the ostensible leader of that "peace" keeping organisation, U Thant, Secretary General of the U.N. U Thant dropped the last pretence of impartiality when he said, that the next step to secure a change in South Africa's apartheid policy, was economic sanctions, and that African members of the U.N. believed that the situation in South Africa was a threat to world peace. This sabre rattling talk of U Thant and his African protégés brought sharp criticism from Sir de Villiers Graaff, the leader of the South African opposition,
"...for anyone to suggest that South Africa constitutes a threat to world peace - the only pretext upon which the U.N. can lawfully act against us - is utter nonsense."


ERIC BUTLER IN RHODESIA

After a marathon speaking and organisational tour which has taken him through New Zealand, Canada, the USA, and Britain during the past three months, Mr. Eric Butler reached Rhodesia on May 14th to start a four week's intensive educational campaign to ensure that the Rhodesians fully understand their historic role in the struggle for the world. This programme may well be the most important Mr. Butler has ever conducted.

In a nation-wide report circulated in Rhodesia before his arrival, Mr. Butler was described as one who had made perhaps the greatest individual contribution to the Rhodesian cause. His work in New Zealand and, Canada, the U.S.A. and Britain had already produced most encouraging results. His presentation of the Rhodesian issue in the context of the global struggle has electrified all types of audiences. An American audience in Pittsburg had given him a standing ovation and many members of the audience provided him with unsolicited financial contributions to present to the Rhodesians.
Mr. Butler will conclude his stay in Africa with a week of 1ecturing and consultation with a growing band of supporter's in South Africa. Between South Africa, Rhodesia and Portuguese Mozambique and Angola, the Southern tip of Africa is at the moment the greatest stumbling block to the messianic dream's of the world revolutionaries.


SOUTH AFRICA AND OIL

To protect themselves on the economic front in the event of sanctions, South African's have planned to establish a wholly owned S.A. oil industry. A plant which extract's petrol from coal has been completed, and another two are on the drawing board. Drilling for the so far elusive oil has been stepped up.

With the likelihood of increased U.N. interference in Australia's domestic matter's, such as over our immigration policy, it would be wise for our Government to emulate the South African example, and ensure a flow of oil at least sufficient for our Defence Forces, for lack of oil is no less an Australian, as it is a South African and Rhodesian Achilles Heel.


REALISM ON U.K.

"The United Nations was not all it was cracked up to be", Senator Magnus Cormack said at Horsham, Victoria, according to a report in the Wimmera Mail-Times 23.5.66. Senator Cormack said he was disturbed at the course the U.N. was taking. "Ostensibly, it met to solve the problem's of the world. Actually, it heightened them."

Addressing Apexians, he said, "It requires the devotion of men and women such as I find here tonight. Whereas you devote your selves to the service of your fellowmen, the UN, as I saw it, tends to exacerbate the distinctions between people rather than resolve them."
Senator Cormack continued, "As vast sum's were being poured into less developed countries and results were not being produced, the tendency was for the development of frustrated people. And tragically, there was developing inside the UN a strong feeling that this failure was because of race. And so the seeds of the great conflagration of the future - the race war - were being created."

Senator Cormack said the development of the Wimmera as one of the granaries of the world could not have been achieved without the hard work of several generations of men and women. But inside the U.N. Africans and Latin Americans were constantly talking of the necessity to take more and more money from the developed nations.
"I asked some of these delegates had they ever soiled their hands with hard work. They looked at their hands, they looked at the table, but they didn't look at me."


CHIANG KAI-SHEK BATTLES ON

The valiant old President of Formosa, Chiang Kai-shek is again in the news saying that he has not given up hopes of invading China. Only the continuous presence of the US Seventh Fleet, which since early in the Korean War is still under orders to prevent him from attempting to rout the Communist overlords from his homeland, has so far, stopped him and his 500,000 men. He has continually pointed to the weakness of Red China with its captive population ready to revolt against the inhuman Mao Tse Tung and the power crazed group, which surrounds him. Meanwhile he is being held on leash while these criminals are being fed atomic knowledge by ideological western politicos and intellectuals.

MOSCOW REPORT

The Australian 20.5.66 "A North Vietnamese delegate to the Young Communist League meeting in Moscow yesterday thanked American anti-war demonstrators for their sympathy and support for Communist forces in Vietnam." (Dr. Cairns please take note.)
Australian "peace demonstrators" should not feel left out. They do what they can!

CHINESE REPORT

The Australian, 18th & 19th May 1966 carried a two-part article by Frank Tuohy entitled "Inside China Today". It is an account of the author's recent visit to that country and must rank as one of the most penetrating exposures of that unhappy land to appear in the daily press. His pictures of a trapped people being degraded to animal status chill the blood. His prefacing remarks set the tone for the whole article, "Communism may still be the wave of the future for some people, but going into a communist country is like re-entering the past."

Students of Communism who wish some first-hand knowledge of the contemporary Chinese scene should endeavour to get hold of them. They will be of particular benefit to those clergy toying with the idea that "Communism has done a lot for the Chinese people".


MR. KENYATTA

The "reformed" Mau Mau leader Kenyatta and his merry band are reported in The Australian 21.5.66 as preparing for an invasion of neighbouring Somali territory. Like Sukarno and West New Guinea they lay "historic claim" to Jubaland, a large stretch of Somali territory to their North East. Perhaps like Sukarno they also wish to hide the deficiencies of their administration by such a diversion. Taken together with the threat of the Uganda Ambassador to the UN Mr. Apollo Kironde that a situation similar to Mau Mau is about to erupt in Rhodesia; how peaceful are Rhodesia's critics?

NEW M.P. ON MORALITY & POLITICAL PRINCIPLES

Mr. Andrew Peacock newly elected MP for Kooyong, Victoria, Sir Robert Menzies old seat, in an address to Monash University students reported in the Melbourne Age 20.5.66, said moral principles did not answer political questions except in a case like a pacifist over Vietnam. These remarks were made in reference to the backbencher in Parliament. Mr. Peacock went on,
"He must have political principles but there comes a time when he must compromise not so much on the principle's but on the way they are carried out".

Evidently there is some confusion in Mr. Peacock's mind between the importance of moral principles and their relation to political principles. This is a common deficiency in party politicians.


THE CHINESE BOMB

Much to do is being made of the recent explosion of a nuclear device by the Chinese Communists. The world has been subjected to an international press campaign that is designed to increase the tension in non-Communist countries, no doubt with the object of inviting China into the "peace" club, the United Nations. Certainly we have been subjected to a barrage of renewed suggestions that this be done. Even Mr. Diefenbaker of the Canadian opposition joining the chorus. However, conflicting reports as to the authenticity of the claim that the explosion was of a hydrogen bomb.
"The Age" 23.5.66 printed a report of a claim by Dr. Edward Teller the nuclear physicist that he would "be surprised" if China did not have the H-bomb. But The Australian 16.5.66 had already printed a denial by the US Atomic Energy Commission saying debris recovered did not indicate this. These are only a few of the conflicting reports. It looks as though we are being made the meat between the sandwich, again.

ON TARGET BULLETIN
SUBJECT FOR DISCUSSION : MORAL PRINCIPLES AND POLITICAL PRINCIPLES

Students will find of interest the reported remarks made by Mr. Andrew Peacock M.P. that we have reprinted in On Target this week. We may be justified if we accepted Mr. Peacock's remarks as being true report of what he said, in asking, where do moral principle's end and political principles start. Evidently for some situations such as Vietnam there are moral principles in relation to pacifism and war and conscription etc. But the morality, which may apply in this case may be different when it comes to carrying out political principles.

There is one underlying principle, which cuts through the intellectual jargon on these matters. This is the principle of personal responsibility, which is directly related to the moral law. The Government assumes responsibility for its Vietnam policies. Providing there is a mechanism to accurately measure the reaction of the electorate, it stands to lose or gain by such policies in the eyes of Australians. Should not this same principle be applied to a politician as an individual irrespective of what the issue is?
The moral law is applied to individuals. However the politician, especially the party politician, says in effect these laws do not apply to him individually, but to the party collectively. Therefore if a minority in the party-room disagrees with a majority party decision, they are absolved by the "morality" of party politics when they vote in the Parliament. Do you agree?
