20 March 1992. Thought for the Week: "Truth cannot be destroyed, only smothered or obscured, or distorted by propaganda and brainwashing. The freedom of the human spirit to search for truth can never be suppressed."
Dr. Michael J. Hurry in "Who Hold The Balance?" (1983)
TUGGING THE FORELOCK TO JAPAN
Australia's Treasurer, John Dawkins, while backing
P.M. Keating's condemnation of 'forelock-tugging' to Britain, does not
extend the same attitude to Japan. The Financial Review (March
12th) reported: "The Treasurer, Mr. Dawkins, yesterday reaffirmed the
Government's view that Australia's future is its ties with Asia, emphasising
the nation's key ties with Japan ... Although the economic importance
of the relationship was apparent - due largely to trade and tourism
- Mr. Dawkins said over time the relationship would become more sophisticated,
extending to cultural and other matters. ..."
One day earlier, on March 12th, The Australian reported: "Australia and New Zealand should devise a joint strategy to achieve economic integration with Asia, as the logical extension of their moves towards a single domestic market, the Federal Opposition said yesterday." The spokesman was the Coalition's spokesman on Trade, Alexander Downer, who seems blissfully unaware of the genesis behind the policy of establishing regional trade blocs.
Mr. Downer, irrespective of his depth of knowledge,
is not going to let the facts interfere with his zeal for APEC (Asia
Pacific Economic Community). On January 30th, 1992, Mr. Downer issued
a Memorandum, as Shadow Minister for Trade and Trade Negotiations, to
all Coalition Members and Senators, reading as follows:
Attached was a Press Statement, issued by Mr.
Downer on January 27th, which included the following paragraph:
It must be asked how long M.P's. of Mr. Downer's
ilk can be allowed to get away with such blatant misrepresentation?
Mr. Downer's knowledge of events occurring during his Party's term of
office during the Fraser years is abysmal. In a Press Statement dated
July 20th, 1978, the then Minister for Foreign Affairs, Andrew Peacock,
In numerous other Press Statements, Mr. Peacock and his successor Tony Street confirmed that the Common Fund and the Lima Declaration were part of Australia's international policy. That policy has been continued through the years of the Hawke Government, under Foreign Minister Gareth Evans, as confirmed in Senator Evans' Address to the Trilateral Commission, Tokyo, on April 20th, 1991, and his Address "The New World Order and the United Nations", made to the U.N. Association of Australia on May 13th, 1991.
Mr. Downer may or may not know of this material. It is safe to say, however, that he cannot challenge the programme for a New World Order without embarrassing his own Party, with its long history of complicity, and jeopardising his own party ambitions. Nowhere in Jeremy Lee's taped address - which now has a circulation in the thousands all over Australia - is there any mention of "conspiracies" and "Jewish bankers". It is simply a pathetic attempt by Mr. Downer to placate his Party colleagues and cloud any discussion of a well-documented policy, which threatens Australia's constitutional sovereignty.
BREATH OF FRESH AIR FROM ASIAN EXPERT
The Bulletin, March 17th, carried an article
by veteran foreign affairs adviser James Dunn, on ".... the notion that
it is time for us to shift our traditional alignment from Britain and
Europe to Asia
" Mr. Dunn went on: "... The debate is rapidly becoming
shrouded in a new nationalism with the implication that we will somehow
become a culturally different country as we shrug off traditional links
and take on some kind of Asian identity. The arguments are an extension
of the new economic rationalism that has influenced major political
parties since the 80s ... Our political leaders tend by nature to be
shortsighted, their visions seldom extending beyond the next budget
or election ... Whatever the laudable qualities of the Westminster parliamentary
democracy, the two party system has implanted permanent divisions in
society ... Australians are at risk of being deluded as to national
identity in a debate largely about scoring political points.
Comment: If only Mr. Dunn could have a fatherly talk with the ill informed Alexander Downer.
THE CAMPAIGN AGAINST TRADITIONAL AUSTRALIA
from David Thompson
The behaviour of the two policemen was undoubtedly
thoughtless, heartless and tasteless, but to compare simple bad taste
with a programme of betrayal of national sovereignty is a gross case
of "the pot calling the kettle black". However, this unfortunate fancy
dress incident will itself be used to drive Australia further towards
an internationalist state.
According to Mr. Coe, who has a long history of activism in "Aboriginal" movements, there is only one answer. The Weekend Australian (14/3/1992) wrote: "Both Mr. Coe and Mr. (Lyle) Munroe (also of the ALS) said the Prime Minister, Mr. Keating, could make good his gesture by joining Aborigines in applying to the International Court of Justice to determine the legal and true owners of Australia". Mr. Coe has a record of demanding that the UN intervene in Australian affairs to redress "institutionalised discrimination" against Aborigines. In 1983, Mr. Coe led an Aboriginal delegation to the UN Commission on Human Rights, demanding that Australia ratify "UN Convention 107" guaranteeing land rights, and self-determination to indigenous peoples. This is clearly a continuing programme.
Last week, former Prime Minister Whitlam urged
Keating's Government to stand up to "separatist and obscurantist" State
Governments whose legislation was inconsistent with international human
rights treaties, adding (as did Coe) that Australia must submit itself
to the scrutiny of "international law". This is a reference to recent
WA legislation for stiff penalties for juvenile crime.
Whitlam urges Attorney General Duffy to over ride such State obstructionism, and enforce UN conventions, such as that on the Rights of the Child. It now appears that the product of this "new" UN sponsored legislation is about to be tested on the two young policemen who were videoed dressed as dead Aborigines. NSW Premier Greiner said he is prepared to use the racial vilification amendment to the State's Anti Discrimination Act, which came into force on October 1st, 1989, even though the video incident occurred before this date. This will inevitably create further friction between police and Aborigines, merely serving to intensify demands for UN intervention. The "race relations industry" appears to have been captured by people who are determined to foster further friction, rather than reconciliation.
DOES JAPAN 'DISCRIMINATE'?
from David Thompson
Back in 1955, when Australia first began to feel self-conscious about the White Australia Policy, Japan was moving in the opposite direction - tightening up immigration procedures. Any visitor to Japan who proposes to stay for longer than one year must still register under the Alien Registration Law. Not only must he register, but he must carry at all times the Alien Registration Card complete with fingerprints.
While Mr. Keating congratulates himself upon racial 'tolerance', the Japanese are much more realistic. It might be noted that Japan does not suffer any problems with Cambodian 'boat people' turning up on Japanese coasts. The message has gone back to Indo-China that the Japanese exercise a serious, homogenous immigration policy, and is quite prepared to "discriminate" against fellow Asians. The White Australia Policy was never as strict as present Japanese immigration policy.
As pressure intensifies upon South Africa to commit some form of national suicide - beginning with "power sharing" (an unknown concept for revolutionaries like the ANC) - the attention begins to shift to the next country that has yet to capitulate to the internationalists. There is every indication, for reasons of strategy and natural wealth, that Australia will be next. Mr. Coe laments that in the relationship between European and Aboriginal Australians, "There is no sharing of power, and there is no respect..." We can expect any incident - no matter how trivial - to be magnified, and bent to serve the purpose of demanding that the "international community" over ride Australian Constitutional processes.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
from Port Lincoln Times (South Australia),
"According to Mr. Lesses, there is no difference between the need for child care in Wudinna and Munno Para, no difference between the need for more social workers in the country and in some areas of the city. "While farmers and unions have traditionally regarded one another with suspicion and even contempt, this proposal would seem to deserve more consideration than simple rejection on the grounds that the two have never seen eye to eye before. "The plight of Australia's rural sector is well known to those who live and work there; it is not so well known to the majority of Australians who live in our major cities. "Bringing it to the urgent attention of the decision makers in government is yet another matter.
"Any help that large and powerful organisations such as the UTLC may be able to offer should be constructively considered. "In the long term there could be further benefits. "The need for value added industry to maximise the export income from Australian produce is a common catch cry - however that sort of enterprise can only be established through cooperation from those in the primary and secondary stages of industry. "If farmers and rural people can find common ground with the union movement in a bid to pursue sensible and worthwhile goals, the benefits could be far-reaching in both the social and economic spheres "
