24 August 2001. Thought for the Week: The world had been 'dragged along the whole of the Western bourgeois-industrial and Marxist path' only to discover "what any village graybeard in the Ukraine or Russia had understood from time immemorial... that a dozen maggots can't go on and on gnawing the same apple forever; that if the earth is a finite object, then its expanses and resources are finite also, and the endless, infinite progress dinned into our heads by the dreamers of the Enlightenment cannot be accomplished on it... All that 'endless progress' turned out to be an insane, ill-considered, furious dash into a blind alley. A civilisation greedy for 'perpetual progress' has now choked and is on its last legs."
"Solzhenitsyn: A Soul in Exile" by Joseph Pearce, 1999
THEN COMETH DESTRUCTION
by Jeremy Lee
Whatever transpires at the election, the start of 2002 looks like being torrid. Reserve Bank Governor Ian Macfarlane is obviously confused, unable to reconcile the increase in unemployment with the GDP growth figures. If anyone tried to explain to him that "recovery" no longer equates with higher employment, he would scurry back to orthodox text-books which no longer have any bearing on an electronic, computerized, technological economy replacing humans as fast as possible.
Latest figures show that, since last
September 176,000 full-time jobs have been lost, with the
gain in part-time jobs almost as much. But by corrupting the
statistics to include part-time jobs in the employment figures
the government has, and is increasingly, hiding the truth
from the Australian people.
Describing the US economy Alan Wood asked (The Australian, 14/8/01): " .... What happens when the bubble bursts? It could get very messy as world currencies find a new level, with capital rushing out of the US, precipitating a new crash on Wall Street and a period of further contraction in the US economy ...."
Stephen Koukoulas, The Australian Financial Review (13/8/01) said of Australia's performance: "In terms of GDP, the recent performance is poor. GDP growth has stalled, with annual growth slowing from 5 percent in the middle of 2000 to 2.1 percent in the year to the March quarter 2001. When the June quarter data are released next month, annual GDP growth is likely to slip to about 1.5 percent .... Interestingly, this is about the extent of the slowdown in the United States, where through-the-year growth has slowed from 5 percent in the middle of 2000 to 1.3 percent in the year to the June quarter 2001. Clearly, Australia has not outperformed the US in the past year and, in fact, has significantly underperformed ....."
Max Walsh in The Bulletin (21/8/01)
was even more graphic: "Can Australia really be an oasis of
prosperity in a troubled global economy? You would think so
if you were to take the word of John Howard and Peter Costello
at face value.....It may well be that the US is already in
recession. And the indications are that its economy has not
yet hit bottom. The impact is being felt throughout the global
economy, with the most painful implications in East Asia,
Australia's main export market.
Meanwhile, Australia's biggest customer, Japan, is crawling along the floor, entering its fourth recession in less than ten years. The Bank of Japan has moved to inject a further 6 trillion yen ($93.75 billion) into the ailing economy. It is a further injection of debt, to be added to Japan's colossal public debt, over 140% of GDP. Like other usury-driven economies, Japan will do everything but the obvious write off the back-breaking load of debt carried by the people by issuing some debt-free money.
As more and more Australians are thrown
out of full-time employment into part-time or, worse, unemployment,
the welfare net is stretched to the limit. Periodically, the
welfare regulations are tightened in an effort to "save money"
throwing even more desperate families on the shoulders of
over-stretched welfare agencies. The Australian (13/8/01)
The Australian (14/8) reported on its own investigation: "Eleven percent of people using Salvation Army emergency services said they had turned to crime after Centrelink reduced or cut off their welfare payments, a yet-to-be-released report by the charity says.
History RevisitedDr. Fred Toben (Adelaide Institute) told his readers of a Mr. Fred Rydholm "who provided his audience with a fascinating set of slides and other compelling evidence that ancient European and Middle Eastern civilisations were active on American soil not just before Columbus but thousands of years before even the Vikings mining copper in the Michigan peninsula and shipping it back to the Old World to fuel the Copper and Bronze Ages..."
Douglas also wrote of America being known
to the Ancient World, and Australians are now learning this
continent was known to these ancient people. ("Phoenician
Colony in Australia?" Heritage Vol. 24, No. 94, 2000).
Where did Douglas get his information,
you may ask. He wrote, "There are, however, certain features
in regard to the rediscovery of America which are worth attention.
Christopher Columbus was a Jew, and John Cabot, although his
ship and crew were English, was a Venetian. But the extraordinary
and significant fact is that there was in Bristol at that
time a secret Jewish community "who handed on their tradition
by word of mouth" (Lord Melchett: Thy Neighbour, p.

POLLIES JUST DON'T GET IT
by Antonia Feitz
Not to be outdone, a female Liberal Party
hack advised female candidates not to wear make-up or to dress
well because female Westies would be embarrassed by "an immaculate
female stranger" knocking on their door.
Image, spin and the 7 second sound bite;
such is contemporary politics. And the major parties seriously
wonder why they're increasingly on the nose as far as people
are concerned? Somebody should tell them that people easily
detect and detest lies, deception and false pretences.
The major parties' spin doctors stupidly claim people are
different now, easily manipulated. Unfortunately for them,
the truth is that every election clearly demonstrates just
how wrong they are.
On ABC Radio (6/8/01) veteran election
analyst, Antony Green, told Sally Loane that in the last election
one National Party candidate was elected on just 28 percent
of the primary vote! Even Green thought that was pretty crook.
But still the ship of political fools sails on.
PEOPLE'S ALIENATION WORRIES POLITICIANS
by Antonia Feitz
Here's what John Howard said: "For all its imperfections, this parliament remains the authentic voice of the Australian people." (Australian, 11/5/01). Not true. People are deserting the major parties precisely because the parliament is the authentic voice of big business and multinationals, not the Australian people.
John Anderson lamented that "the trust and goodwill that I believe are integral to, and vital, to the smooth working of each and every community ... is somehow weakening and drifting in this nation." Spot on! So why can't he understand that the reason for the declining trust is because governments for the last 20 years have totally ignored the Australian people, preferring to obey other foreign masters?
Kim Beazley said: "the confidence of the people in the established institutions of this nation not least this parliament is perilously low. I am concerned at the way this great institution has slipped in public regard in recent decades." If Beazley can't make the connection between the policies of the last two decades and the massive voter disenchantment over the same period there's something wrong with him.
In the vulgar parlance: it's the policies, stupid. Politicians should be relieved to know they can very easily regain the people's trust and restore their faith in parliament. All they have to do is govern in the interests of ALL Australians, not just globalisation's winners. Australians don't want a market society of winners and losers who have nothing in common. They want a civil society such as they once enjoyed. Over to you, John, John and Kim.
LEAVING AT LAST
from "Rhodesia Christian Group" Newsletter
Hunger now faces Zimbabwe. Little happens in that country without the nod from State House. Mugabe's twenty one years of near-absolute power, together with substantial, readily available funding for land purchase and agricultural extension, have produced nothing but swathes of farmland lying waste owned and left to rot by the government, the generals and the president's closest cronies. The whole of Mugabe's land-grab is no more than a vote-catching fraud. There is no disagreement anywhere about the need for land reform, nor any lack of will by the farmers to put it into effect.
Young Africans abandon homeland
On Target asks its readers to send a copy of this report to not only their local politicians, but more especially Prime Minister John Howard; he was a member of the Fraser Liberal government which played such a part in the sell-out of the Rhodesian people both black and white.
The lie was finally given to Mugabe's
claim that he is taking land from the whites in order to help
the blacks when 80 of his thugs drove out Matibe, a black
African commercial farmer, from his farm. He was the defeated
candidate for the Chegutu constituency: defeated by the intimidation
of the voters. The attack was led by Chris Shamu, the district
administrator, together with some of the police. His workers
and their families are now homeless and workless. As usual,
Mugabe has effectively decreed the "vets" above the law by
the issue of presidential pardons.

"Solzhenitsyn: A Soul in Exile": Nigel Jackson wrote in his review of the book (Heritage, No. 96): "Alexander Solzhenitsyn is a man who has led a heroic witness first against the Soviet communist tyranny and secondly against the corruption of the Western world by humanism, materialism and hedonistic consumerism. For both reasons this important new biography is to be heartily welcomed." This book will challenge and grip the reader. Highly recommended. Price $25.00, Posted $28.50.
"The Story of the Commonwealth Bank" by D.J. Amos: Leading politicians scoff at the idea that low-interest creation of money is not only possible, but is part of the answer to Australia's present woes. It is important to re-learn how Australia made enormous progress when 'the peoples' bank' (the original Commonwealth Bank) controlled the creation of Australia's credit. The original Commonwealth Bank was able to fund the cost of the First World War without debt to the nation and re-settle returned soldiers on land grants at extremely low rates of interest. Public works, such as the East-West Railway, were funded free of debt. The insignificant 0.625% interest charged was sufficient for the bank to make a profit! This book is immensely important for Australians to help in their search for a way of lifting the yolk of usurious international debt-finance. Price $5.00, Posted $6.00.
The Heritage Journal. We cannot praise enough the latest edition of Heritage. It features the articles by Larry Noye of the early 1900's character King O'Malley and his battle to give the Australian people their own bank (the original Commonwealth Bank). Rex Gilroy's article continues the search for Australia's ancient history, "Were the Aboriginals the First Australians?" Part 11 and Nigel Jackson's review of Solzhenitsyn's biography "Solzhenitsyn: Soul in Exile" by Joseph Pearce is brilliant. Annual subscription $30.00 (4 quarterly issues) or single issue $8.00 posted. Subscriptions to Heritage Book-mailing, PO Box 163, Chidlow, WA, 6556.
"Here We Go Again" by Doug Collins. The author of this book and the newspaper he represented were the first in North America to be fined by the Human Rights Tribunal for having 'wrong opinions'. The author refused to pay a penny and has described the tribunal as a 'kangaroo court', where the adjudicators are the judge, jury and prosecutor and a complainant may never be named! Many people pay lip service to freedom of speech, but show little fight for it, Collins does. His humorous columns, included in the book, well worth reading. Price $20.00, Posted $24.00.
