3 February 1989. Thought for the Week: "Education has become miseducation, despite all self-promotional talk about the 'development of personality', 'socialisation', 'preparation for life', etc. Too many schools are failing in teaching their students the most important aspect of personality: self-discipline, the conquest of oneself, which Socrates declared to be the hardest battle humans ever enter . Secular schools fail because great characters grow only out of strong and inspiring religious convictions; all other ideas are superficial to this enterprise..."
Dr. R.M. Jurjevich, in The Contemporary Faces of Satan
STANDARDISATION OF BRAINWASHING FOR AUSTRALIAN KIDS?
The recent call by Mr. Dawkins, Federal Minister for Education, for more standardisation of syllabuses in Australian schools, government and non-government, is only to be expected. Indeed, we are mildly surprised we have not heard it before this. The excuses are pretty lame, viz a few students may have suffered by having been forced, by circumstances, to transfer from one school to another, perhaps interstate, to find the school syllabus at the "new" school "different".
Compulsory "free" education has obtained
in Australia for something like one hundred years, and students
have always been transferring from one school to another,
even interstate. It's happening all the time. We personally
know many, many, students who have attended many, many schools;
yes, not only interstate, but overseas, and they do alright.
We charge that the reasoning is phony.
We do believe that the levels of real education in Australia are declining; grammar, spelling, numeracy, ignorance of Australia's political processes (a frightening percentage of Australians don't now that there is an Australian Constitution). In spite of this the recent Constitutional Referendums were soundly defeated - so we must suppose that this is a testimony to the commonsense of Australians, that Mr. Hawke comments on from time to time. But the joke is on him: Australians wouldn't wear his Bill of Rights, or his Australia Card.
Our definite view is that differences in educational approach by individual schools should be encouraged. Some school syllabuses will be BETTER than others. Some teaching methods will be BETTER than others. Some State school syllabuses and teaching methods will be better, overall, than those of other States. These develop slowly and organically over decades. Now Fabian Brother Dawkins wants to sweep all this away and impose the dead hand of Socialist centralisation, aided and abetted, of course, by the Communists and Socialists in the various education departments around Australia. They are providing dogs for Communist fleas: huge, centralised, bureaucratic hosts for Communist/Socialist parasites.
We know that State education departments are encouraging early retirement for older teachers who are "infected" with values and opinions of an earlier generation, like loyalty, patriotism, family solidarity, and many, many, other virtues, which built up this nation. They must go. How? Retire off all these "old codgers (anachronisms) and bring in the young men and women, suitably imbued with Secular Humanism/ Socialism in the universities and teachers' colleges. It's going on now.
It is quite interesting that John Dawkins should compare, draw a parallel, between Bicentennial Australia with the French Revolution . "between what we can achieve and the objectives of liberty, equality, and fraternity espoused in 1789". Some readers may choose to study the real history of the French Revolution, and so disentangle themselves from many of the myths, which have been spun around that history-shaker. The French Revolution by Nesta Webster, that great historian of the subversive and the occult, will do just this. Mrs. Webster thoroughly documents all her works, so much so that the World Brainwashing Mills have "painted her out of the picture". This book (above) from all League bookshops - $20.00 posted.
Perhaps these political ideologues do actually believe the nonsense they utter. It can only be a type of madness (fallacious ideology), which bedevils man into belief, that black is white, that evil is good. But Truth is the great disciplinarian: the crazed political ideologues will be swept away by their own errors, and unfortunately, many well meaning people will be swept away with them.
SIR NINIAN STEPHEN DISAPPOINTS
"The abolition of State governments and the creation of a single central government combined with more powerful local government was suggested by the outgoing Governor General, Sir Ninian Stephen, yesterday." Sir Ninian, by these statements, only further reveals his centralist views, which were evident in his judgment, when sitting as a judge on Australia's High Court, on the "Koowarta" case against the States, which validated the Racial Discrimination Act. This led on to other centralist "social legislation" such as Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action, Bill of Rights: high sounding stuff which is inherently evil, offering spurious "rights" and "liberties" but in reality eroding the rights and liberties which Australians have traditionally enjoyed.
Sir Ninian, addressing the National Press Club, described his role as ornamental. This does disappoint us, we see it as central to the Australian Constitution as the role of the House of Representatives and the Senate: a division of political power three ways, conforming to the Trinitarian nature of Reality accepted by the Christian Church; rather traditional Christianity. It would be a brave man to boldly state just what some Christian Churches believe in these days.
Great play is now being made of the role of the Governor General as Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces. C.H. Douglas has observed that the Monarch, as representing the soul of the nation, the enshrinement of what is best in the nation, is naturally, the nation's protector, and as such is Commander-in-Chief of its Armed Forces. This has ever been accepted, up till now. Who have been the "traditional" critics of the Monarchy, and its attackers. The Socialists/Communists. They well know that the Monarchy is a strongly cohesive force, binding the nation together.
Sir Ninian forcibly espouses the multicultural society: we take the opposing view, viz. the multicultural society is divisive, leading to what Professor Geoffrey Blainey calls the "tribalisation of Australia". It must. Language also binds a nation together. Where there are two or more languages in one nation, there is division. Examples: Belgium (French and Flemish), and Canada (English and French). Sir Ninian, also, has regrettably "paved the way" by way of attacks - upon Australia's traditional values which have brought the nation into being - for the next Governor General, Fabian Socialist, Secular Humanist, Mr. Bill Hayden. Will he now "carry on" the example being set by Sir Ninian Stephen, who retires in a matter of days? It won't be long before we find out.
(From Canadian On Target, Jan.16, 1989):
Ron Gostick, National Director of the Canadian League of Rights,
However, it should be noted that the same poll indicated that an overwhelming majority of Canadians whose mother tongue is French, feel that the preservation of their culture is more important than the preservation of freedom of speech for English speaking Quebecers. In other words, there is a much stronger 'family' or 'group' feeling (nationalism) among Canadians whose mother tongue is French, than among English speaking Canadians who, the poll might imply, place more importance on freedom of speech. However, the apathy and unconcern for the freedom of speech issue displayed by the English speaking public during the Keegstra and Zundel 'free speech' trials of this decade create some doubt as to just how many English speaking Canadians care a whit about the preservation of either their cultural heritage or freedom of speech. Perhaps we'd better sort this question out before being too harsh in any criticism of our French speaking fellow Canadians."
THE CRISIS IN SAVINGSFrom L.R. Smith, Chief General Manager, National Australia Bank, Melbourne, as published in The Australian, Jan. 30th:
"Since the National Australia Bank highlighted the savings/investment crisis (Quarterly Summary, December) I would like to correct any misconception that may result from the comments of the spokesman from the Treasurer on this matter in The Australian (25/1) "We have been advocating tax justice - not tax concessions. When the spokesman says Treasury will not exempt from tax the interest on savings, this is not addressing the issue that we raised as central to this debate. We have never urged a tax holiday for interest income. "Our point is that an absurd situation has been allowed to develop through distortion to the tax system created by inflation. "Due to this distortion, the Treasury is gathering a windfall tax harvest; so there is a disincentive to save; so the main source of investment cash is drying up; so we have a crisis in savings. "The main reason for high interest rates is that they are needed to restore losses in the value of savings due to a high level of inflation. So real interest earnings today are what remains after provision for inflation. "But Government Policy does not acknowledge this reality. Acting as though inflation does not exist, it taxes the entire interest income. "All we say is that the Government should correct for inflation and confine tax to 'real' interest earnings. We are not asking for tax concessions to stimulate savings, but for the removal of a disincentive to savings."
