On Target

24 November 1989. Thought for the Week: "Destructive and irresponsible freedom has been granted boundless space. Society appears to have little defence against the abyss of human decadence, such as, for example, the misuse of liberty for moral violence against young people, motion pictures full of pornography, crime and horror. This is considered to be part of freedom, and theoretically counter balanced by the young people's right not to look or not to accept. Life organised legalistically has thus shown its inability to defend itself against the corrosion of evil."
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, in Speech at Harvard (U.S.A.) 1978

THE DEBT EXPLOSION IN CANADA

Eric D. Butler reports from Alberta, Canada
Poland's Solidarity Leader Lech Walesa has come to Canada to plead for Canadian support for the new non-Communist Polish Government. Walesa says that reform in Poland cannot succeed without international aid. Walesa is not reported as having stressed that one of Poland's major problems is a massive international debt, and that the creators of that debt, the international bankers, are insisting upon measures designed to make it possible for Poland to export more in order to service that debt. It is a form of criminal madness to force Poland to export real wealth like food while Poles are being drastically rationed.

At the very time that Lech Walesa is appealing to the Canadians for help, the Canadians are also being prepared for a lower standard of living through the imposition of a GST tax. One headline reads, FEDERAL DEBT EXPLOSION FEARED UNLESS TOUGH MEASURES TAKEN. The Economic Council of Canada has warned that the future of the nation is threatened by a major debt explosion. The Council suggests a number of drastic measures all of which would have a depressing effect on the standard of living.

The total debt is now listed at $15,000 for every man, woman and child in Canada. This is a total of $60,000 for an average Canadian family of four. But while the "experts" are calling for a halt to the debt explosion, figures show that in spite of increasing interest costs, consumer borrowing is still expanding. However, the "experts" are expressing the hope that eventually the high interest rates will slow down the expansion of consumer debt. This view completely ignores the realities concerning the working of the present finance economic system: that increasing amounts of debt finance must be injected into the economy to prevent it from collapsing in chaos.

Financial debt is like a drug, which must be progressively expanded. Any attempt to curtail the rate of debt creation must produce disaster. South of the border, the attempts by the U.S.A's. "experts" to "cool" the American economy have already had a devastating effect on the car industry, with production at the lowest level for a long time. Manufacturer in both the U.S.A. and Canada are expressing grave doubts about the future. Those who believe in the inevitability of a major world depression are predicting it is already starting. A major collapse is not in the interests of the Debt Merchants who obviously favour a steady programme of lowering the real standard of living whilst at the same time 're-structuring' the economies of the world on a global scale.

The heady excitement concerning what is happening throughout the former Soviet bloc of nations may mask the attempt by the International Debt Merchants and planners to expand their global programme by financing the 're-structuring' of the economies of the Communist nations and integrating them with the centralised economies of the West. "Clearly there are those in the Soviet Union who are looking ahead. An obscure report in the American press reports that the Soviet Union has opened its first bank in the U.S.A."


PACIFIC BASIN AND MULTIFUNCTION POLIS

by David Thompson
"In 1987 the Japanese and Australian Governments came to an agreement. They decided to jointly investigate the feasibility of creating an international City of the Future in Australia. The Multifunction Polis concept stems from a desire on the part of Japan and Australia to create a new international focus for the expanding Asia-Pacific region..." - Opening statement from the Multifunction Polis concept statement.

It appears that the MFP idea began with the Japanese - with a Ministry of International Trade and Industry pre-feasibility study. It has been "sold" to the Australian Government on the basis that it will be the "hub" for the Asia-Pacific region, and will bring investment of funds to the tune of $40 billion. According to the "concept statement", the objectives for Australia include: the establishment of a strategic role for Australia in the Asia-Pacific growth economy, and increase the internationalisation of Australian business.

"Cosmopolitan spirit: MFP will be an incubator for new industries, a powerhouse for new ideas, a cosmopolitan city of people from countries around the world. The MFP is obviously based on two important assumptions, which we do not accept have yet been established in Australia. The first is that Australia is a multicultural society.

While the media, politicians and the vested interests in the ethnic 'industries' pay lip service to this, it is far from accepted in the wider Australian community. Second, the MFP is obviously to be the 'centre' for the emerging Pacific Basin (Economic) Community, to which the Australian people have not vet agreed at all. And yet, this very expensive feasibility study has being going on for at least two years without our knowledge! Not only that, but our money is (partly) being used to fund the study.

ELEMENTS OF NEW CITY
The "core" of the MFP would revolve around: Education, information and telecommunication, advanced transport services, environment and agriculture, health, leisure entertainment and the media. This means the establishment of the following: a "World University" which among many other things would offer a Masters degree in Environmental Management; the MBA of the 21st century; a "World Media Centre", a World Teaching Hospital", a "World Sports Medicare Centre", a "Global Resource Monitoring Centre", a "World Sports Centre", an "Asian Betting/Shopping Network" serviced by satellite, and "Advanced Transport Services which includes such things as fast freight systems, and fast transport. The Very Fast Train? Although this is denied, we suspect so. Ansett/TNT and BHP are involved in both projects. It would be surprising if Sir Peter Abeles could not arrange some links!

FINANCE
Four Australian Banks are named as being members of the feasibility study: ANZ, Westpac, National Australia, and the Commonwealth. On the other hand, 16 Japanese banking institutions are also named - some of them huge international banks. There are no funding details as yet, but the project must mean either a massive increase in debt for Australia, or massive foreign (mainly Japanese) ownership. At this stage, no other conclusion seems possible.

WHO IS INVOLVED?
So far, over 600 leading Australians have been involved. The list is very long, but it also includes every government - Federal and State - in Australia. Mr. Will Bailey, Chief Executive of ANZ Bank, is the MFP Joint Steering Committee Chairman. Member Companies of the feasibility study include: Aussat, Telecom, OTC, Qantas, CSIRO, NSW GIO, Austrade, the six leading Universities. Companies like: BHP, Bond Corp., Ansett/TNT, Coles Myer, IBM, Thorn/ EMI, Dalgety, Esso, Shell, Toyota, and many others. There is also a very long list of Japanese companies involved.

WHERE WILL MFP BE LOCATED?
At this stage, no one is saying a word! Apparently a site within either one or a number of existing metropolitan areas is favoured. We believe it could also be an entirely new site altogether - perhaps along the route of the VFT?

SERIOUS QUESTIONS
While this project is perhaps not entirely secret, Australians have had no opportunity to decide whether they find it desirable to have a multicultural, high-tech city, with all that it involves. It appears that in March 1990, we will be presented with a fait accompli, and perhaps asked where do we want it to be. What will it mean for Australia's immigration policy? What will it mean for our sovereignty? How will it affect our debt structure? Finally, if it is such a great idea, why are not Hawke, Button and other Ministers out using it as a number one election issue, and flogging it for all they are worth? Clearly, a long period of community debate needs to precede even a feasibility study of such a proposal. This seems to have been deliberately avoided. Why? Are we too dumb to know what is in our best interests? Or are we too 'parochial' to accept such an advanced idea? Or do we, perhaps, reject the drive toward the regionalisation of the world, in which Australia is simply required to become a huge sheep station, or quarry?

GOING DOWN THE GURGLER

This letter, published in the Sunday Mail (Qld.) 12/11/89, over the name of "Richard H. Webber", Public Relations Officer, Grey Power Movement, Sunshine Coast, P.O. Box 212, Caloundra, Qld., 4551:
"H.W. Herbert's Economist's View (Nov.5) makes plenty of sense. However, I would like to make two points. "First, we should keep shouting the message loud and clear to try and make Australians wake up to the fact that they are losing their country very, very, fast. "Second, Mr. Herbert has obviously not heard of the 'multi-function polis' or he would not state that his suggestions of what could happen are 'an extreme view'. "The Federal Government has already chosen the sites for seven Japanese techno cities with reported populations of up to 700,000 each. "The timetable for this is final agreement with the Japanese next March and, I quote, 'building is expected to commence before 1992'. "New Zealand and Canada have already knocked back similar suggestions by the Japanese. "This Federal Government project, apparently supported by most State Governments, must be stopped. Next March will be too late."

ALERT ON HEALTH SURVEY

from The Sun (Melbourne), Nov.13
"Privacy must be the paramount consideration when a woman provides personal information about her own health to a government agency. "The Australian Bureau of Statistics (A.B.S.) National Health Survey (N.H.S.) contains a voluntary, self-completion questionnaire in which women are quizzed about matters like pap smears, hysterectomies, mammograms, intra-uterine devices, and oral contraception. "However, it has been discovered that information on these (women's health) issues is also being sought in the main body of the N.H.S. which has compulsory status and involves face to face questioning by an A.B.S. interviewer.
"As the 'women's health' section is completed last, female respondents are unaware that information divulged in the main body of the N.H.S. may be the same information which has been deemed so 'sensitive or embarrassing' that it should only be collected in the separate, voluntary, questionnaire.
"Furthermore, despite assurances that the completed 'women's health' questionnaire is to be afforded total privacy by its being placed in an envelope, there is an identifying mark on that envelope which links it back to the main survey questionnaire. "The Privacy Commissioner is now examining these matters. A number of peak health organisations that originally supported the N.H.S. have also expressed concern about the way it is being conducted.
"Australian women have a right to be alerted to these important facts." Senator Jocelyn Newman (Opposition Spokesman on the Status of Women); Dr. Michael Wooldridge, M.H.R. (Federal Member for Chisholm).

PARENTS COULD LOSE RIGHTS OVER CHILDREN

from the front page of New Life, November 16th, 1989
"A national assembly of Christian leaders in Canberra has warned that federal politicians were about to sign a United National Convention that would give the child and the state greater rights than parents. "Spokesman for the assembly, which was sponsored by National Alliance for Christian Leadership, John Heininger, who has himself concluded studies at the International Institute of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France, stated that 'child power' would take on a new dimension if federal politicians ratified the U.N. Convention on the 'Rights of the Child'.
"Under the Convention it would be the child and the state, and not parents, who would determine what children could read and view. Article 13 of the Convention states: 'The child shall have the right to freedom of expression, this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of the child's choice'. "Once ratified, parents would have no right to prevent their children from receiving pornography, anti-social, sub-standard or politically indoctrinating material whatsoever. It would be the state alone that would decide what was read or restricted in the interests of public morality, health and order.
"Under present laws 'public morality' is vague and meaningless, particularly at a time when the state supports the pornography industry to the extent where it receives $2 million annually from franchise royalties, and readily endorses school texts and materials such as 'Everygirl', 'The Treatment and the Cure', and a multitude of other books and material which endorses various abnormal sexual practices.

"For further information contact John Heininger, (02) 661 0334, 7.30 a.m.-3.30 p.m., or (02) 524 9966 A.H."

Senator Gareth Evans will be the official (Foreign Minister) to ratify the Convention of the Rights of the Child, unless we can stop it being ratified. Senator Evans is a former President of the Humanist Society, a Fabian Socialist, and architect of the (presently) defeated Bill of Rights. His views on children are now of intense interest, viz. "Children wanted a right to sexual freedom and education and protection from the influence of Christianity'. (Our emphasis) - quote from the Sydney Morning Herald, 7/5/76, page 11
