8 July 1966. Thought for the Week: "How, I often ask myself, will future historians (assuming there be any) be able to relate the ostensible enlightenment and benevolence of liberal attitudes with the chicanery and brutality which have so often accompanied their application? How did it come about that the pursuit of peace led to ever more ferocious wars, of happiness to ever large and more crowded psychiatric wards, of knowledge to ever greater credulity and vacuity, of security to an ever intensifying sense of helplessness and loss of identity, of affluence to ever mounting indebtedness, of health to the consumption of ever more pills and potions?

THE RACE QUESTION: AUSTRALIA & RHODESIA
Mr. J. H, Howman, Minister of Information in Rhodesia when addressing the Sons of England society in Salisbury criticised the U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Mr. Arthur Goldberg, who had stated that Rhodesia's Declaration of Independence had "cheaply abused" Jefferson's document. Mr. Howman pointed out in this report from "Rhodesian Commentary" 27,6.66 that, Jefferson had never acknowledged the native Indians as being the equal of the European colonists. Australians may well have cause to speculate on the nature of the private conversations held by the Prime Minister, Mr. Holt with Mr. Goldberg in New York during his recent visit.
"The Australian" in its editorial on
Monday, July 4th refers to Mr. Holt's "vague indication" that the Australian
government may be contemplating further moves away from "rigid application
of the White Australia policy
Mr. Goldberg with his record of pro-Communist
sympathies, (see "On Target" 30.6.66) plus his defence of "Civil" Rights
legislation in America, would no doubt be concerned to place pressure
on Mr. Holt in regard to Australia's policy towards Rhodesia.
KENNEDY & "DIALOGUE" WITH RED CHINA
It should cease to amaze us how often those liberals
busy protecting the interests of the Communist cause continuously use
Marxist terms. Senator Kennedy is reported from New York, 26.6.66 in
"Review of the News".
After asserting that the U.S. was depicted as the country that refuses to negotiate in Vietnam, he adds, "we will have to have a dialogue of some kind in a major way" with Communist China. Dialogue is a Marxist term and is a major weapon in their armory. The Communists believe that so long as the opposition is willing to have "dialogue" with them they can make progress. The debate on Vietnam must be kept going.
While we are prepared to argue it means we believe there is something to argue about. Dr. J. Cairns and his fellow socialists understand this question thoroughly, that is why they will go to all lengths to keep up the "dialogue" in the form of debates. Denied the platform of "dialogue", which in essence is propaganda, the cause of the Communists would wither on the vine. Only the inability of the West to understand clearly that there is no compromise with Communism allows the enemy to take the initiative.
While the thesis, that Communism in the Soviet Union is "mellowing" and becoming more democratic if not pro-capitalistic, is given prominence in the press for the purpose of lulling the West into a false sense of security, a significant event has taken place in the Soviet Union which shakes the foundation of this thesis. Students of history will remember Andrej Shdanov. Shdanov was not only an advisor of and close friend of Stalin, but was a top communist theoretician representing the most aggressive school of communist thought. He was even regarded as a possible successor of Stalin. He is credited with having drawn up the plans for the takeover of the Baltic States, instituting the Finnish-Soviet war, and the creation of the Cominform an institution of utmost importance to world-communism.
During the Berlin blockade Shdanov favoured a military thrust into Europe to parallel the political thrust. Shadanov died suddenly in 1948. After Stalin's death his name too was eliminated from communist party writings. With Stalin he was no longer acceptable, when under Khruschev Communist policy was to lull the West into "peaceful co-existence" as a necessary preliminary to the final Communist takeover. That this time could now be imminent could well be, for now no less a person than the Director of the Institute for Marxism and Leninism, Comrade Pospelov as well as "Pravda" and "Istvestija" eulogized Shdanov as an outstanding statesman and an ardent fighter for the Communist ideology. "Nation Europa" , May 1966.
DEVALUATION IN VIETNAM
The International Monetary Fund, which has long been an economic help to international forms of co-operation that can only be described as socialistic, has now used its power to force a devaluation of the Vietnamese piastre. This new measure which halves the dollar value of Vietnamese currency is expected to cause further unrest in Vietnam, thus embarrassing the Ky Government as prices soar. The militant Buddhist clique were reported in "The Australian" 25.6.66 as planning to use this unrest in an endeavour to topple the government.
The directors of the I.M.F. will be remembered
by Australians for forcing our government of the day to adopt a policy
of credit restriction, which practically brought Australian industry
to a standstill in 1962. Our present Prime Minister who was then the
Treasurer made this clear in parliament. In the ensuing election the
government survived with a majority of one seat, but learning the lesson
reversed the policy imposed by I.M.F. Those who made a study of centralism
in its many forms are not surprised when remote control organisations
like I.M.F. seem to further the Communist advance and penalise genuine
EDITORIAL DOUBLE TALK ON CHINA
An editorial in "The Australian" 25.6,66
chides the Australian Government on the overtones of schizophrenia evidenced
by its China policy. It quotes the Wheat Board announcement of its completed
negotiations to sell 600,00 tons of wheat to Red China on terms which
were described by Senator McManus as highly favorable to that country.
It then further remarks on what it calls Mr. Fairhall's (Minister for
Defence) "bitter attack on Chinese attempts to subvert free people with
insurgency and terrorism'". The two attitudes, it says, cannot be reconciled.
We would agree.
But then the Editor plunges straight into the same type of morass that he had just criticised. "This paper does not oppose the sale of wheat to China. It recognises that Chinese ambitions, furthered by subversion, represents a major threat to the future security of this part of the world, but that if Australia is to have a secure and prosperous future that threat will have to be countered by more sophisticated policies than those we are at present applying."
"The Australian's" policy page since its
inception gives the clue to these "more sophisticated policies. Recognise
the Communists as representatives of the Chinese people - Permit them
a say in world councils even if it means throwing out our strongest
Asian ally, Chiang Kai Shek - Withdraw from Vietnam and leave the field
to the Communists, and don't under any conditions do anything which
is likely to defeat Ho Chi Minh.
Recent press reports throughout Australia tell
us of the demonstrations of some 5000 students in front of the University
of Indonesia voicing their discontent with the pro-Communist activities
of President Soekarno. Large student demonstrations at American universities
and here in Australia have been given wide publicity for protesting
against anti-Communist activities by their governments. In America some
groups have even donated blood to the Viet Cong, which is busy killing
their fellow Americans.
Mainly that they are impressionable excitable youngsters whose understanding of the realities with which they are dealing is negligible. The day when inexperienced youngsters - however intelligent - are allowed to influence adult affairs, on that day civilisation will vanish. There is no substitute for experience.
