29 March 1985. Thought for the Week: "Uniformity is the watchword of the totalitarians, the socialist politician, the socialist schoolmaster, and the socialist industrialist. Deviation from uniformity (from the party line) is considered the greatest political crime, and it carries the penalty of complete exclusion from all organs of publicity. 'The uniqueness of the individual', is essentially a Christian conception, and is anathema to the Planners...."
James Guthrie, in To What End? (1952)
TOTALITARIANISM IN NEW ZEALAND
Mr. Eric Butler reports from New Zealand
where he is currently lecturing under the auspices of the
New Zealand League of Rights|
As I write the New Zealand League of Rights is obtaining legal opinion on where it stands on the issue of the Butz book. It is also proposing to follow the lead of the national weekly "Truth", in publishing correspondence from the Race Relations Board."Truth" editorially said that a high percentage of violent crimes in New Zealand were committed by non-Europeans. In spite of threats by the Race Relations Board, "Truth" has to date refused to back down in any way. Clearly the maximum publicity is the only way to resist the Human Rights totalitarians.
When Christchurch businessman Mr. Eric Sykes advertised for a Christian foreman some years back, a complaint was laid before the Human "Rights" Commission and Sykes was prosecuted. The two Christchurch papers were also prosecuted for having published the Sykes advertisement and found guilty. The case cost Mr. Sykes thousands of dollars, but the resulting nation wide publicity saw the end of any further prosecutions - at least for the time being.
But now the totalitarians are on the move again, with the League of Rights the major target. Perhaps it was more than a coincidence that on the Phillip Adams visit to New Zealand a few weeks before my arrival, well-known radio New Zealand interviewer Jessica Waddell opened an interview by asking for comment on "fascist" Eric Butler. Mr. Adams lost no time in telling New Zealanders that I was the "most dangerous man in Australia, and that he was devoting himself to destroying my influence. He linked me with Mr. John Bennett and Professor Geoffrey Blainey".
Being anti-Christian herself, Jessica Waddell no doubt felt at one with Phillip Adams as he says his goading of the Christian Church is his idea of good fun. Jessica Waddell once interviewed me on her programme, agreeing basically with most of what I said. She knows, of course, that I am not a "fascist", but she got such a fright as a result of the torrent of highly organised complaints that she never had me back again!
Striking posters are now going up in public places in New Zealand, headed DISCRIMINATION, which is "unlawful" on the basis of sex, race or religion. And "if you feel you have been unjustly treated, consult the Human Rights Commission or The Race Relations Conciliator." This is, of course, an encouragement to every misfit to lodge complaints, in confidence, against their fellows. The battle for freedom in New Zealand is clearly about to enter a new phase.
MR. JEREMY LEE REPORTS : LANGE, HAWKE AND ANZUS
Australians and New Zealanders are now witnessing the final dismembering of our defences. Public reaction to the threatened destruction of the ANZUS treaty has forced P.M. Hawke to adapt a more cautious posture than his N.Z. counterpart; but the performance of his Government to date inspires little confidence. One of the A.L.P's first acts was to appoint Mr. Richard Butler - former husband of Senator Susan Ryan as Ambassador for Disarmament to the U.N. This was in keeping with a campaign run by the United Nations Association in Australia prior to the Federal election, and for the disarmament programme sponsored by "Parliamentarians For World Order" an association of politicians from countries in the West pushing for World Government.
Last December Australia, for the first
time, voted for a nuclear freeze resolution in the U.N. The
National Times (Feb. 8-14, '85) said: ".... The resolution
urges: "The USSR and the US, as the two major nuclear weapons
states, to proclaim... an immediate nuclear arms freeze which
would be a first step towards a comprehensive programme of
disarmament". The resolution further states that a freeze
That resolution, which Australia voted for in the U.N. last December, is the precise position New Zealand has now adopted. No wonder the U.S. finds it difficult to trust the Hawke government. Current events have been timed to a nicety, from the USSR's point of view.
Victorian RSL President Bruce Ruxton, writing in the Toorak Times on January 27, issued this graphic warning; " An item of concern is the Soviet build-up at their Cam Ranh Bay base in Vietnam. Five more TU-16 Badger nuclear bombers have arrived in Vietnam to bolster the already large strength of Badger bombers in Vietnam (now 14). The Soviet military might in Cam Ranh Bay, including the enlarged garrison of Soviet sea-going infantry, could easily cut off support and shipping lanes, including all important Middle-East-Japan oil route. The Soviet is known to have at least twice as many submarines operating in the Pacific as the US Navy. The Soviet island north of Japan - Etorofu, is getting the new Flanker and Fulcrum low-flying jet fighters, and many more ships are destined for the Pacific to bolster the already large Soviet fleet of 600 ships stationed in the Pacific. These new ships include more of the KIROV class 28,000 tonne nuclear powered missile-carrying cruisers, and the huge deep-water Alpha submarines. The large Soviet military presence, together with troubles in various Pacific nations augers for a not-so-nice future in our part of the world "
THE LOW-DOWN ON LANGE
Mr. B. A. Santamaria, writing in The
Australian (March 27, '85) said:
Mr. Santamaria went on:
Mr. Santamaria's article went on to
show how the communist controlled Socialist Unity Party in
N.Z. first took over the Federation of Labour, (the equivalent
of Australia's A.C.T.U.), and from there gained majority support
in the Labour Party itself.
CHIPP OFF WHOSE BLOCK?The National Times (Feb. 8-14, '85) said; "Democrats Leader Don Chipp was posturing in New Zealand this week over nuclear ships and ANZUS. Deriding ANZUS as a 'con', he drew attention to the treaty's lack of real security guarantees for Australia and New Zealand. Compare this with Chipp in Parliament on May 22, 1969:
"... The Prime Minister brought back a reaffirmation of the ANZUS Treaty by President Nixon in such unequivocal and categorical terms that gave heart to every member on this side of the House who still believes that the ANZUS treaty is the most precious piece of paper in Australian archives..."
All we can say is: We're not surprised!
CAPITAL PEACOCKThe Chronicle (Toowoomba, March 11, '85) reported;
"The Federal Opposition would not vote against capital gains tax legislation even though it opposes the principle of such a tax, Opposition Leader Peacock said yesterday. Speaking on television yesterday, Mr. Peacock said the Opposition would not vote against any element of the Government's Budget, even if it disagreed with parts of the Budget legislation, and this included capital gains tax...."
JUDICIAL VENOMYes, we've passed 1984. This is 1985 We can still recall the days, long ago now, when a judge was the model of respectability. The very peak of good taste was expected of him. Now (1985) we have a judge of the High Court of Australia about to face criminal charges; and another judge (both judges former A.L.P. Ministers) making insulting remarks about the British Prime Minister, and a former Prime Minister of Australia. Mr. Justice J.McClelland ("Diamond Jim") - atomic tests, in Australia, Royal Commissioner, says (The Age, March 25th) that "he had to be a bit rude". Did he have to be? We know it would not have been difficult for him; but we wonder what the British officials have to say? We are sure of one fact: viz. the Royal Commission into Atomic tests in Australia is part and parcel of the Aboriginal Land Rights campaign.
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN LAND CLAIMS SITUATION
This information from David Thompson,
who has rejoined the League full time staff;
"The Bill will carve WA. up into 9 Aboriginal land corporations. Land granted to the corporations will be held under inalienable freehold title; it cannot be mortgaged or sold without the specific consent of the Minister. There will be no mining veto, no rights to mineral royalties, and no special rights over access except the normal trespass laws. "This legislation is obviously an attempt to woo W.A. voters prior to a possible early State election in 1985. The 'teeth' have been drawn from the W.A. bill - to the obvious disgust of the radical aborigines and some church groups. Mr. Burke's case is that W.A. is better served with mild, benign, State land claims laws rather than harsher Federal laws about which he is always ready to lecture the W.A. Opposition. "This, however, is either naive or dishonest.
As David Barnett pointed out in his excellent The Bulletin (March 12th) land claims article, the Federal Government can and will over ride any State land claims legislation. Section 109 of the Constitution specifically states: 'When a Law of a State is inconsistent with a law of the Commonwealth the latter shall prevail, and the former shall, to the extent of the inconsistency, be invalid'. Clear enough even for Mr. Justice Murphy. Mr. Brian Burke must know this, and therefore he is misleading West Australians that it is best to 'stick with the devil you know.'
"Apparently Mr. Burke has successfully misled the Executive of the Pastoralists' & Graziers' Association, in any case. Showing an appalling naivety, the P & G Executive assisted the Government to draft the Land Bill, claiming the W.A. Bill will serve as a model for Clyde Holding's Federal Bill on land claims. They reason that if the P & G can effectively water down the W.A. legislation, they will be setting the pattern for national land claims legislation. In the process, the P & G Executive agreed to set aside the principle of allocating land on the basis of race. "Fortunately, the W.A. Liberal Party has not yet set aside the principle, and is pledged to block the Bill in the Legislative Council, despite threats from Labor to 'reform' the Council to a one-vote-one value' chamber.
"Demonstrations in Perth over the last few weeks by militant aborigines and church groups (like the Land Rights Support Group, and the concerned Christians for Justice for Land Rights) indicate heavy opposition to Mr. Burke's Land Bill by the revolutionaries. It does not go far enough for them. Demonstrators still fly the Aboriginal 'Flag', indicating that the notion of separate sovereignty is still important to them. "In endorsing this Bill, the Labor Caucus departed significantly from usual practice in that very few M.P.s had actually seen it. Premier Burke not only managed to get them to endorse the 191 page Bill; sight unseen, but offered only 45 minutes in which to answer their questions upon its provisions.
"Our W.A. campaign must centre upon having that Land Bill rejected by the Upper House, Rather than 'a Victorian era anachronism', it is our very protection against the tyranny of politicians who believe that winning the occasional election gives them the power to do as they please."
A Sydney Actionist (N.S.W.) wrote to
Andrew Peacock concerning the attempts to downgrade the Office
of the State Governor in Victoria by the Cain Socialist Government.
Mr. Peacock's reply is worthy of reproduction: (we hope he
LABOR IMMIGRATION MINISTER TALKS MORE SENSE THAN LIBERALSMr. Chris Hurford, the A.L.P. Minister for Immigration and Ethnic Affairs, stated recently that it would be disastrous to "open the floodgates" of Immigration, in Australia now; as this would bring about great social tensions. He said he was angered by those who came to Australia as visitors and then applied to have their status altered to permanent resident, once here. He said this was unacceptable queue jumping. Mr. Hurford said that he did not agree with the managing director of Elders IXL, Mr. John Elliot, that Australia's population should be doubled, through immigration, by the year 2000 A.D. This could cause strong social tensions. He said: "It would be a disaster if we opened the floodgates at this particular time, but I think the sort of economic policies which the Hawke Government has instituted, and which are bringing success, will mean we can start liberalising shortly after that - and that will mean there are benefits in immigration and not just costs..."
