On Target

21 August 1992. Thought for the Week: "To realise the nature of the powers conferred upon the holders of the monopoly of credit is to realise at once that, human nature being what it is, any suggestion designed to release the man in the street from the power of this monopoly is certain to be actively, if not openly, resisted. The monopoly is in itself so indefensible, however, on the grounds of reason or equity that a realisation of its nature is quite sufficient to induce the banker (who in many cases is a thoroughly well-meaning member of society) to admit in private that it cannot continue."
C.H. Douglas, in Reconstruction (1932)

AUSTRALIAN BIG BUSINESS AND HEWSON OPPOSITION ALREADY IN CONFLICT

With the Federal Budget only a day away Australian business has split fundamentally with the Keating Government over the key question of economic growth, predicting a sluggish rate of 1.5 to 2 percent over the coming year and further increases in unemployment." The Business Australian, August 17th

Australian Big Business has been having a more than reasonable time under the Fabian "Labor" Party. Taxation concessions have been generous (much more so than has been the case with suffering Small Business and employees). Indeed, Dr. Hewson has alleged that some areas of Australian Big Business have been mollycoddled. But Dr. Hewson is determined to abolish tariffs within the next handful of years, which is madness. Dr. Hewson intends to push deregulation further: he is obviously pushing the International Monetary Fund line. So Big Business is generally unhappy now with the economic policies of both "Labor" and the "conservative" Coalition (in reality, there is very little difference between them).

We recall that C.H. Douglas once observed that there had only been one Party, from the time of the first half of the 1800s, and that was the financial party. All parties uphold the authority and overall control of Finance, and International Finance, in particular (World Bank, International Monetary Fund, United Nations Finance Agencies, etc., etc.). Mr. Brian Loton, of the Business Council of Australia, does not see any real grounds for optimism with respect to the much-vaunted "recovery", which is assumed by many "financial" people to be just around the corner. Mr. Loton doesn't rule out the prospect of a "double dip" recession.
Our opinion is that the double dip recession is well on the way now!

The decline in business activity in Japan is a fact of life; and it is declining further by the month. It should be obvious to any sensible person that all nations in which Japan is financially strongly represented, will suffer, along with Japan. Japan also suffers from what we could term "institutionalised corruption", which exacerbates the already present finance economic woes.

One Australian economic commentator has condemned the politicians, the business adviser "industry", the real estate industry, for "taking up" the Australian economy. This commentator rightly points to the business investment figures: they are way down. He insists that these people do not know what they are talking about: or, they should know better. Mr. Loton, of the Business Council of Australia, observes that 78 of the Council's 80 member organisations are planning to reduce their workforces and increase productivity (no doubt with the aid of current technology). He expects unemployment to rise. So do we.

We are also suspicious (we cannot get proof) that liquidity is slowly being drained out of the West's economies (this includes the Asian Tigers). It is being done slowly, we think, so as not to "stampede the herd". We know that the Money Power had a nasty fright in the early thirties: the brutal depression of the time looked as though it could bring on a threat to itself (i.e. the Money Power). One of its high priests is on record as saying that for a time there was concern in the higher ranks of the Money Power, but that things were soon brought well under control. It won't make the same mistake again.
What's it all about? The New World Order, probably. We'll hear a lot more (again) about that after the U.S. Presidential elections. Clinton is its man this time.


MULTICULTURALISM AND CRIME IN CANADA

from On Target (Canada), July 20th - Comment from Ron Gostick, National Director, Canadian League of Rights
Because of our oppressive hate laws and 'Human Rights' censorship decrees, one has to be very discreet in even reporting or commenting upon these 'visible minority' incidents. However, it's about time that someone told the truth about the rapidly deteriorating social conditions in our major cities while there's yet time to avoid 'Los Angeles type' conflagrations across our country.

A few observations
Montreal suffers the same rising crime wave as Toronto, due largely to mounting numbers of black immigrants. Vancouver is experiencing the same assault but at the hands of Asian crime gangs. In every case, the cause points directly at our immigration policy - bringing in hundreds of thousands of 'visible minority' immigrants and 'refugees' of entirely different background and culture, who cannot be readily assimilated. Yet, to even point this out is to risk media smear and legal action!
Members of the escalating torrent of Third World arrivals, in the main, are part of a civilisation centuries behind ours in material progress and living standards. Suddenly exposed to a completely new culture and environment, with Western style society and affluence all around them, it's understandable that such immigrants soon scramble for instant 'equality' in the sea of affluence they see about them. Little do they understand that it's taken Canadians and other Western peoples countless centuries of toil and hardship to raise their living standards to our present level. And little do they appreciate our values, customs and mores, and the responsibilities inherent in the institutions and constitutions of Western, democratic society.
For these obvious reasons, such immigrants find integration and assimilation in our society extremely difficult, and their progeny more exposed and prone to violence in quick fix attempts to redress what they perceive to be a condition of disadvantage and injustice. The cold reality is that these critical problems have their roots in our 'open door' immigration policy. And refusal to address this issue merely increases the difficulty of constructive change of what has proven itself a disastrous policy now threatening the destruction of the Canada our forefathers built.

CHRISTIAN JUSTICE, OR JUDAIC VENGEANCE?
James Keegstra, the former Eckville, Alberta, high school teacher, was found guilty at the conclusion of his retrial in Red Deer, and fined $3,000. "The Calgary Sun, July 20th, reported: 'The Toronto-based League for Human Rights of B'Nai B' Rith (Children of the Covenant) of Canada has written to Alberta Attorney General Ken Rostad calling for a jail term'. In as much as Mr. Keegstra's 8-year ordeal of trials, appeals and retrial has financially almost pauperised him, to say nothing of the loss of his teaching certificate, any further harassment by his tormentors by way of further 'appeals' or jail sentences, far from serving the ends of Justice would constitute nothing more than Judaic vengeance at the taxpayers' expense.


BRIEF COMMENTS

Writing in The Bulletin of August 4th, Rowena Stretton raises the question of whether the Keating Labor Government may lose Jewish financial support for the next Federal Elections, this the result of Foreign Minister Gareth Evans modifying Labor's attitude towards the Palestinian Liberation Organisation. There has been an attempt by both Evans and Keating to placate Zionist leaders. Opposition leader John Hewson was given a standing ovation when he addressed a Zionist Federation Conference in May and made it clear that he was 100 percent pro-Zionist. Stretton writes, "Liberal number crunchers, politicians and office bearers are swelling gentile numbers at Jewish functions". Stretton comments, "It is not so much the Jewish vote that matters - there are fewer than 200,000 Jews in Australia - but rather the vast financial resources of the community's wealthier members." It is no secret that Bob Hawke was given almost unqualified support by the Zionist leaders. If they are now switching from Keating to Hewson, this can only mean that they are positioning themselves to control a Hewson-Government. It is legitimate to ask whether the Bulletin article could, under the anti-vilification legislation, result in the writer and the magazine being prosecuted for suggesting that a relatively small number of Zionist Jews play a major role in influencing Australia's politics.

The quick Jewish reaction to the criticism of proposed racial vilification legislation highlights once again that the main driving force behind this type of totalitarian legislation is the Jewish leaders, who make the false claim that the anti-vilification legislation is necessary to curb a rising tide of 'anti-Semitism'. Such legislation is in fact certain to increase the distrust among many people that Jewish influence is far too great in Australia. The rank and file of the Jews will be serving their own best interests by joining the growing volume of criticism of the proposed anti-vilification legislation.

Victorian State Opposition Leader, Jeff Kennett, is railing against the independent candidates in the forthcoming Victorian State elections. He is insisting that a vote for an independent is a "wasted vote". He is saying this because he expects (Vic.) Labor to stand "dummy" candidates to attract the votes of disillusioned Labor voters, yet still ensure that these votes go to Labor. Don't tell us that the Liberals will not do the same! The League of Rights supports independent candidates of quality: vote for them. Some will be successful, in spite of the intrigues of political parties. Electoral comment authorised by Eric D. Butler, 145 Russell Street, Melbourne, 3001.


JOBS THAT WILL NEVER RETURN

from The Weekend Australian, July 25th-26th
"Twenty or 30 years ago the pundits assured us that automation and computers would revolutionise our lives. The amount of manual and routine work would be greatly reduced. We would have to learn how to make good use of more leisure time. "It has happened. "At the same time, a revolution in housework took place, labour saving machines, tools and materials largely freed women from many arduous tasks at home. (Remember the routine: washing took up most of Monday; ironing and mending Tuesday; house cleaning and polishing Wednesday and Thursday; shopping Friday.) The result was that women were able to re-arrange their lives to allow them to join in the paid workforce.
"For a time, particularly the '80s, the excess could be accommodated and people were kept on in what are now seen as inefficient workplaces. Now that the world is in recession, employers are retrenching surplus workers to become lean and competitive. "High levels of unemployment and taxation to support the unemployed are probably here to stay. This was part of the forecast of 20 or 30 years ago. A paid job would be something of a privilege, but high taxation to support the jobless would be quid pro quo. "The most unfortunate are, and will be, the under-educated, because not only will they continue to have the most difficulty in finding employment, but they are also less able to use leisure time as well as the better educated." (John Maddox, Sandy Bay, Tas.)

DISCRIMINATION LAW DISCRIMINATES

from Morning Bulletin (Rockhampton, Qld.), July 22nd
The new legislation, which will come into power on June 30th, is worse than any that went before. "Because we have allowed others to change our language, it becomes a bit difficult of late to understand what the lawgiver is saying. As an example, we can take the word negative. Today, no company works with a loss, they call it negative profit. "The word discrimination is one of those words. To discriminate used to be to act against someone or some group, because of that group's natural position. Jew, Black, Polac, these names nearly had the same meaning, for some people, as inferior. That is discrimination. But, there are other things that do not fall into this category. A colour blind man should not be a pilot. Not out of discrimination, but he has some defect that makes him unsuitable for the job. On the other hand there are people with certain attitudes, or worldviews that may not be comparable with ours.
"I would not, as a Presbyterian minister, employ an atheist. Not only does the atheist refuse to obey the law of God, but he also denies the existence of God. He is free to believe in God or not. I should be free to employ him, therefore, or not. "I will never accept a homosexual, to use the nice word, as leader of a scout group, if my sons were in that group. He might be a 'nicer man', but the Word of God calls his way of life an abomination. Is that new law now discriminating against me and other Christians? Yes. "This law calls everything discrimination that I might bring forward against anybody, if that would bar that person from a job or membership of an organisation. "This law is discriminating against our spiritual freedom. If we accept this law, we might as well accept a new Adolf Hitler to become our Fuehrer. "When a government demands to rule our thoughts, our taste, our inner beliefs, then that government is not democratic, whatever that might mean. No, it is dictatorial and discriminating against those who wish to obey God rather than man. (Rev. Gilbert Jansen, St. Stephen's Presbyterian Church, Rockhampton, Qld.)

FOREIGN POLICY A VICTIM OF THE RANDOM EFFECT

from The Australian, July 28th
Is it me, or can others see the contradictions in Australia's foreign policies? "When Iraq attempted the genocide of its Kurdish population, we sat idly by. When Iraq invaded Kuwait we agreed to sanctions, and finally military action. "Yet, some years ago, when the Kmer Rouge came to power in Cambodia, we recognised it as a legitimate government. Even years later, when the atrocities carried out by this brutal regime became known we continued to accept it as the legitimate representative of the Kmer people.
"Now under the auspices of the United Nations peace plan, in which our Foreign Minister takes great pride (and for which he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize), the Kmer Rouge not only retains political legitimacy, but retains a seat at the table of a coalition government.

Another issue
Senator Evans sees no political problem with Australia's rugby touring side visiting Boipatong at the express orders of the A.N.C. While it must be agreed Boipatong was a tragedy, only two months earlier 23 people, including women and children, were massacred at the Crossroads township. "The difference between the two events is that supporters of the A.N.C. were suspected of carrying out the Crossroads massacre. It must be noted that the A.L.P. has long been a financial supporter of the A.N.C.
"After four years there is a thaw in relations with China, even though China still prosecutes demonstrators from Tienanmen Square. "Already we seem to have forgotten those who died in Dili. Various government groups in Australia have formed a taskforce to discuss exploration of the Timor Gap with Indonesia. The international community, with the notable exception of Australia, does not recognise Indonesians sovereignty of East Timor or its surrounding waters.
"It would seem that our Government and its foreign policy advisers have discovered the elusive method of turning lead into gold. Or do they have some other method for balancing human rights with political expediency - maybe a dart board or random number generator?" (A.J. Keane, Klemzig, S.A.)
