10 August 1984. Thought for the Week: "In substituting for the old heaven beyond the clouds a new paradise called 'classless society' to be attained right here on earth, Marx supplied a faith and goal of sacrifice to many doubt bewildered minds. But in declaring civil war, and the morals of civil war, to be the road to this new paradise, he set these minds free from the restraints that make any decent society possible"
Max Eastman, in the Foreword to The Whole of Their Lives, by Benjamin Gitlow (1948)
LAND RIGHTS ROW LOOMING
Only a few weeks after its controversial passage through the Federal Parliament, Clyde Holding's "Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (Interim) Heritage Protection Bill" looks like causing its first explosion. The Bill has already earned widespread opposition from organisations including the Australian Mining Industry Association, the National Farmers' Federation, the United Graziers' Association in Queensland, the Cattlemen's' Union, the Pastoralists and Graziers in Western Australia, and even the A.L.P. in that State. This surge of opposition has finally goaded Liberal leader Andrew Peacock into grasping the land rights nettle, for which he should be commended. Naturally enough, he has been accused of being "tarred with the League of Rights" brush.
Following its recent conference in Rockhampton,
Queenslands United Graziers' Association has come out strongly
against current land rights legislation. The Courier-Mail
(July 23rd), under the heading "UGA WARNS OF BACKLASH BY WHITES"
reported; "The Aboriginal land rights issue could develop
into a full black white conflict unless the Federal Government
saw reason, the United Graziers' Association said today. The
association's southeast Queensland district President, Mr.
Ian McMaster, warned of a public backlash against Aboriginals
over what he described as the "land rights farce".
This warning has been followed by the first two claims under the Bill, which are certain to cause widespread controversy and anger. The Weekend Australian (August 4-5, 1984) said: "...In Western Australia, Aboriginal legal advisers are attempting to use the new Federal laws to end construction of a nearly built $113 million dam and have the entire area declared a sacred site.
In Queensland, the Aboriginal poet Mrs.
Kath Walker, who lives on Stradbroke Island, has asked for
the withholding of sandmining leases which she claims will
destroy more than 20 aboriginal middens...the controversial
federal law provides for fines of up to $50,000 or five years
jail for the desecration of aboriginal sites. The Harding
River Dan in Western Australia is to become the major water
source for the mining towns of Dampier, Karratha and Roebourne.
Although the project is now 70% complete, the Aboriginal Legal
service is seeking to invoke protection clauses under the
new Aboriginal and TSI Heritage Act to stop the project.
The State A.L.P. and the Federal A.L.P. governments are now headed for direct confrontation on the issue. Perhaps Mr. Hawke will find it necessary to call in U.N. peacekeeping forces to settle the dispute!
HOMOSEXUAL 'DE FACTO'S'Following the Hawke Government's decision to extend benefits enjoyed by wives of politicians - including overseas trips - to de facto's, it is hardly surprising that the A.B.C. has gone one step further in extending benefits already available to heterosexual de facto's to homosexuals. Simply put, it means that unmarried homosexuals working for the A.B.C. are now officially entitled to the same benefits as married couples - all paid for by the long suffering taxpayer of course. Which raises once again the question still waiting a long overdue answer - Why should the taxpayer be forced to pay for a policy he finds morally repugnant? It was precisely that misuse of power that the old British principle of "taxation by consent" was designed to forestall.
CYCLES AND COMPUTERS
In the Sydney Sun Herald of August
5th last appeared a feature article "What Lies Ahead in Australia".
It is based on the modern expertise of a Mr. Philip Ruthven
and his "IBIS Research Services." Surprisingly, some of his
forecasts run parallel to our own predictions: with others
we do not agree. We agree with IBIS that, "Rising real interest
rates and other factors will abort the false dawn recovery
we are now experiencing and lead to unemployment that could
exceed 13% or 14% in 1987".
IBIS has it that most aspects of industry and the economy run in cycles. We insist that because of the fallacies of the modern finance economic system of the Western world, and its (now) shaky maintenance (as a matter of policy by the world's Masters of Finance) to prop up its structure by massive international debts, that the whole finance economic system, and the social systems of the West are disintegrating, and will continue to disintegrate.
We don't accept "cycles". IBIS sees a huge inflow of immigrants from the Pacific Basin, "in 2005-2010, 6 out of every 10 of Australia's 300,000 immigrants will come from the West Pacific Basin". This means Melanesians, Polynesians, and others. Mr. Bill Hayden, Australia's non-stop Foreign Minister, said exactly this not so long ago; but went further. He saw a "new race" developing, or words to that effect, and said he thought that this was a terrific idea. Well, this would be the result of a very strong policy, again. It is most certainly not a policy wanted by the majority of Australians, so IBIS and Mr. Hayden, along with his fellow Fabian/Humanist/ (spiced with Communists) do not have great confidence, nor perhaps even belief in Democracy.
We, the Australian people, get the results we don't want, whether we like it or not. Well, we, the League of Rights, DO believe people can get the results they desire, in spite of totalitarians, if they know how to go about it; and we believe that the current uplift of public debate on Australian Immigration and Aboriginal Land Rights will, in time, shift the policies of the so-called "Labor" governments from their present anti-Australian stance.
The totalitarians masquerading as "social democrats" are now rattled, and do not know what to do, apart from the "ad hominem" approach in smearing and vilifying the League of Rights. But even this is now proving counterproductive - we are being just inundated with support and enquiries. Thank you, Mr. Holding. Please keep up the good work, Mr. Gott.
As for a "28 hour week" which IBIS foresees -we can't from where we stand. We see the "Breakdown of the Employment System" as Australia, with the rest of the Western World, slips into an era of revolutionary disintegration. It's not what WE want to see; make no mistake about that, but as the great Solzhenitsyn has said - "The truth is almost, always, unpleasant". Why is this so? We think it is because - "Hope springs eternal in the human breast"; and human beings do not like to face the facts that bring no cheer.
The Western Australian Chamber of Mines is to run a full-scale advertising campaign to oppose the initiatives on Aboriginal Land Rights by both the WA, State, and the Federal Governments. As per leading article in this issue of On Target. we have arrived at the point where the White backlash has commenced. We foresee jagged Constitutional battles ahead between the States and the Commonwealth next year, after the return of the Hawke Government to the Lower House; we are hopeful that Mr. Hawke and his colleagues will not gain control of the Senate. Now that the backlash against Immigration and Aboriginal Land Rights has commenced, the Communists/Socialists will either have to back right off, or step up the battle for the supremacy of "their" policies. We supply the inverted commas to the word, their, because we do not believe that the policies on Immigration and Aboriginal Land rights are "theirs" at all; but have been "sold" to them as being in the best interests of advancing some sort of socialist utopia. In short, these people are deceived. Supporters will be aware that many policies come down from "on high". What about the enforced metrication, decimilisation?? These did not come from the grassroots of the Australian electorate, Fluoridation? Immigration? Land Rights? They are all imposed ON the Australian electorate. The flag, the National Anthem; the list grows, The antiAustralianism is self-evident, and we believe that these policies come down via secret and semi-secret societies; some of which we could name.
We read a day or so ago that - "To advance,
a people must be sufficiently aware of basic truth to make
mostly the right decisions". What seemed to put the spotlight
right on the essential weakness of the political ideologues
was the following - "When people become alienated from fundamental
reality, then they begin to make mostly the wrong decisions
and as they are unaware of the reason - these compound until
order disintegrates". This can be seen happening now around
A Mareeba (Qld.) actionist has sent us clippings from north Queensland newspapers: they seem healthier than the dailies of the south. From the Townsville "Register" (July l9th} we read in Neil Naessens' column: "...in Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, or Japan they can be as xenophobic and harshly protective of their own as they like. They are defending their cultural heritage. "In Australia, if you have even the tiniest twinges of doubt and cautiously advance the opinion that perhaps we should slow things down, you are a racist. "It doesn't add up. I just don't think that hurling abuse at people like Professor (Geoffrey) Blainey is much of a solution. "The Opposition hasn't fuelled the immigration debate. The Government did, by trying to ridicule some of the very real and widespread concern in the community".
OBSERVATIONS ON THE RECENT NEW ZEALAND ELECTIONS
From New Zealand On Target. July 16th
(we cannot supply the full article for reasons of space):
The writer is Bill Daly of the New Zealand League of Rights:
"The groundwork for the same type of
Socialist advance in New Zealand has been laid by the out
going National Government. One move the new Labor Government
will make will be to ratify the United Nations Convention
against alleged discrimination of women. This has been made
easy by the fact that under the Muldoon Government the Convention
has been brought to the ratification stage. On the united
Nations Conventions concerning 'human rights' and 'race' the
Muldoon Government went even further than did the Australian
Liberals, Whilst ostensibly portraying themselves as conservative
and patriotic our out going National Government chose to ignore
completely all the evidence that it was the Marxists themselves
who most wanted these Conventions accepted. It was the Marxist
journals and newspapers that were most supportive of the establishment
of the human Rights Commission.
The August issue of Ladies Line is now
available. The emphasis in this issue is on marriage and the
indispensability of the family. As usual there is the "Education
Sheet" and this is given over to - "Phonics First, Second,
and Always": there is no better way to teach a child to read
and write. There is a section on the Family Law Act, now to
the fore in public debate because of violence and death to
many, including one Family Court Judge, and the wife of another
Family Court Judge. Ladies Line observes; "Isn't there some
significance in the fact that, unlike in the criminal courts,
it is non-criminals who are often so severely penalised under
the Family Law Act? People who consider themselves without
fault are deprived of their property and their children. "This
is the inevitable result of the elimination of the 'fault'
element from divorce proceedings...Since the (Judge) Watson
tragedy we have heard the usual socialistic non-solutions
put forward. One was the establishment of more women's shelters.
They seem to have overlooked the fact that men, too, may be
the innocent victims of matrimonial troubles. Where are they
to go when they have lost the home to which they contributed?
Where do they take the children?
The very nub of the flaw in the Family Law Act has been given by Ladies Line, viz. "..individuals are NOT required to accept personal responsibility for their actions". Because of this basic flaw, the Family Law Act is bad law, and unfortunately, further trouble must be expected. The annual subscription to Ladies Line is still only $6.00 for the twelve monthly issues. Write to P.O. BRIGALOW, Qld. 4412. The Editor is Mrs. D. Willacy.
A QUESTION OF REPAYMENTThe following letter appeared in The Land (July 26th): "For many years Argentina has achieved world headlines, firstly through the best selling hit, 'Don't Cry for Me Argentina', and secondly when the self elected leaders took on the might of the British Navy and got walloped. "Thirdly, the Argentinian debt to world banks is estimated at some $45 Billion. Repayment is due and can't be met, hence chaos in Monetary circles.
Australia's participation in the above could be summed up by the following comments: "Hope the Pomms win but don't ring us. "The debt is their problem. WRONG. Australia's debt at present - not to be confused with the annual deficit - is a staggering $40 Billion. "Our sporting commentator Prime Minister, to maintain popular ratings is borrowing $1.5 Billion a month. "Many people, and obviously the Opposition, don't realise that Mr. Hawke and his consensus Government have in twelve months increased our debt 100%, or by nearly $20 Billion. "The rural and mining industries once the backbone of our national economy, have had their profits eroded into oblivion and can't be expected to contribute to prepayment. "So who will? Mr. Hawke?"
This letter was published over the name of a "Doug O'Neil" of Bellata, N.S.W.
