23 November 2001. Thought for the Week: "In all normal civilisations the trader existed and must exist. But in all normal civilisations the trader was the exception; certainly he was never the rule. The predominance which he has gained in the modern world is the cause of all the disasters of the modern world... The complexity of commercial society has become intolerable, because that society is commercial and nothing else. The whole mind of the community is occupied, not with the idea of possessing things, but with the idea of passing them on. When the simple enthusiasts say that Trade is Good, they mean that all the people who possess goods are perpetually parting with them. These optimists presumably invoke the poet, with some slight emendation of the poet's meaning, when he cries aloud, 'Our souls are love and a perpetual farewell.'
In that sense, our individualistic and commercial modern society is actually the reverse of a society founded on Private Property... the actual direct and isolated enjoyment of private property, as distinct from the excitement of exchanging it or getting a profit on it, is rather rarer than in many simple communities that seem almost communal in their simplicity."
"The Well and the Shallows: Reflections on a Rotten Apple" by G.K. Chesterton, 1935
SHADOW REPRESENTATIVESby Betty Luks
If the disappointed One Nation and Independent candidates who didn't gain a seat in Federal Parliament decided to continue to serve their electorate as Shadow Representatives, they would not only demonstrate how genuine they are, they would also raise their own profiles for the next election. Service in the political arena is more than formulating policies and planning strategies and tactics for an election campaign. As the people's Shadow Representatives, they could demonstrate what is the genuine role of a representative in Parliament. Such means as surveys would tell them what the people were thinking and wanted and ways and means would need to be worked out for informing the people and reporting back to them.
ELECTION PROPAGANDA OVER - NOW FOR THE TRUTH

OIL - COMMODITY DEAR TO HEART OF 'DADDY' BUSH & FAMILY
Why were the Bush Administration and the Pentagon so intent on the invasion of Afghanistan? After all, it was the US Central Intelligence Agency, along with Pakistan's intelligence forces who helped establish the Taliban as a base of power in Afghanistan in the first place. As recently as May 2001, George W. Bush sent the Taliban $43 million allegedly to aid in the fight against drugs in northern Afghanistan, the one part of the country controlled by opposition forces. (The Northern Alliance is up to its neck in drug production in Afghanistan.) Now Congress is allocating billions more dollars for "America's new war".

The saga continues, but this time the
Howard government has committed our soldiers to the region
in this 'war against terrorism'. It is time he came clean
as to why Australian soldiers have been committed to this
war. The purpose of our defence forces is not that of policing
pipelines for oil monopolies in faraway Afghanistan!
PERCHANCE TO DREAM......
In a recent OT our attention was brought once again to the Alaska Permanent Fund formed in 1976 to give all Alaskans a direct share of the profits their state governments received from investments resulting from the Prudhoe Bay oil fields bonanza. By 1998, through property, stock market and other investments, the Fund was providing greater returns than the oil itself. Half of the Annual Fund investment returns are distributed to the residents of Alaska as a dividend. The policy was an acknowledgement the citizens of Alaska were entitled to some financial share of the profits from the sale of their natural resources.
Just imagine what it would be like for the people of the Third World nations if they received a dividend, a share of the real wealth of the nations' oil and gas bonanza. What a bonanza for the people of Afghanistan, Pakistan and Turkmenistan if they received a share of the profits from the oil and gas reserves in their region. I thought about what they might choose to do with their first dividend. Repair the damage to their homes and infrastructure after twenty years of war? Send their children to school? Take a holiday in America? Who knows. It's only a dream.
The reality is the ruling elite, the corporate cowboys and the corrupt politicians will get their greedy hands on the spoils and the citizens will continue in their poverty-stricken state. In the meantime David Malan of Cleveland, Queensland, has reminded us the scheme in Alaska should not be described as 'Social Credit'.
Sir, Antonia Feitz is to be commended
on the article on Social Credit in On Target (9/11) but to
quote Alaska as an example of Social Credit in action is totally
wrong - it has no relation to Social Credit except for the
use of the word dividend. Alaska has what orthodox economists
call a 'favourable balance of trade' and therefore appears
to have excess money which is distributed to the population
as a dividend, but to equate it to the Social Credit concept
of a National Dividend reveals a sad lack of understanding
of the basics of Social Credit.
SHARON PLANS A MILLION MORE JEWS FOR ISRAEL
The Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon plans to bring one million Jews to Israel. Israel already has about six million population, five million of whom are Jews; attracting almost one million migrants in the past decade, mainly from the former Soviet Union (The West Australian, 8/11/01).
Former Israeli general, Mr. Sharon, is himself the son of Russian migrants. Directing his remarks to the Guardian, Ariel Sharon alarmed the Palestinian general delegate to Britain, Afif Safieh, who responded, "It is a dangerous dream, a nightmare. He is a pyromaniac on a powder keg."
Now, we ask our readers to look closely
at any newspaper picture they may see of Mr. Sharon. Look
closely. Would you say he was a semite? Would you say he had
Arab blood in him? Yes? No?
From the time this group took over the leadership of Jewry, the dogma of 'the return to Palestine' was preached in the name of people who had no Semitic blood or ancestral link with Palestine! No wonder they are seen as a thorn in the side of the Palestinians. No wonder the Arabs charge the Kazaar Israelis with being an army of occupation. Most of the Israelis have no racial or religious ties with the people around them and yet they are imposing their will - with the might of America behind them - on the original inhabitants (aboriginals) of the land.
One wonders how the Christian fundamentalists' belief of 'the return of God's chosen people to Israel' lines up with the truth about the Kazaars. One wonders when will the Middle East 'powder keg' blow up? When it does, will the western world be dragged in to fight the Zionists' battle for them? All in the 'name of 'our' God'. Finally, will it be presented as a battle between Christianity and Islam?
GLOBAL WARRIORS FOR UNCLE SAM
by Ann Crosson - from Neil Baird's newsletter
Economically the United States has spread
its commercial tentacles into every corner of the world. Chain
stores, packaged food, Coca cola, MacDonalds, Mr. Whippy -
there's no escape from them. Their economic impact has disrupted
economies and working traditions wherever they impact. And
their social impact has perhaps been more destructive, especially
in developed countries most of which, like Australia, have
fallen victim to American cultural moves.
American publishers flood the world with manuals written by so called experts on everything from religion, sex, child raising, self-improvement, fashion, and their own invention 'teenagers'. The attention given by our educationalists to American methods has successfully lowered our once high educational standards to a pitiful state. We have a population today that very largely depends on the American movie and television studios for its knowledge of history and geography. A distorted and trivialised concept of everything from the Bible and the Roman Empire to the French Revolution and the Mutiny on the Bounty!
Socially, the impact has been disastrous.
Australian families now show a rising incidence of 'dys-function':
the euphemism for marriage breakdown, domestic violence and
child abuse and neglect.
Chesterton, in an essay, remarked on the American fixation on wealth as a measure of success. As he pointed out a baby elephant who grows to be an adult elephant is successful, since that was what it set out to do!
(UK) FARMERS TAKE HEART, HELP IS ON ITS WAY!
It seems that many months of cheating, lying and blackmailing individual farmers (in the UK) during the Foot and Mouth Disease crisis may be coming to an end. No longer to suffer bizarre or brazen infringements of the Law, such as the indiscriminate use of firearms over open ground, or the Army illegally threatening to place farmers under house arrest. Instead of being driven from the land, it seems that farmers are to be 'encouraged' to take early retirement.
On a lighter note, Joanna Wheatley, an organic beef farmer from Maidenhead, sent the following to the British On Target. We hope it gives our farmer friends a good belly laugh. We think he needs it.
Due to the current situation within the farming industry, the government has decided to place all farmers over the age of 60 on an early retirement scheme. This scheme will be known as RAPE (Retire Agricultural Persons Early). Persons selected to be RAPED can apply to join the SHAFT scheme (Special Help After Farm Termination). Those who have been RAPED and SHAFTED will then be reviewed under the SCREW scheme (Scheme For Retired Early Workers). Please note that you can only be RAPED once and SHAFTED twice, but SCREWED as many times as the Government deems appropriate. Persons who have been RAPED can apply to get AIDS (Additional Income for Dependents) or HERPES (Half Earnings for Retired Persons on Early Severance). Those farmers remaining in the industry will receive as much SHIT (Special High Intensity Training) and CRAP (Caring Response Assistance Programme) as possible.

BRILLIANT ADDRESS BY BISHOP JOHN HEPWORTH TO ADELAIDE CSC
Those who attended the Adelaide CSC's final meeting for the year were treated to an outstanding exposition of what were the arrangements of power in British history and why this was so and what is now the case. Reminding his audience 'apples must be compared with apples', he outlined the differences in the approaches to power between Christianity and Islam. He speaks of the problems encountered within the Christian Church and lines them up with Islam's approach to power. This tape needs to be circulated far and wide. The audio tape of Bishop John Hepworth's address "The Arrangement of Power in British History" is now available from Mayo Tapes, PO Box 6, Hahndorf, SA, 5245 - $6.00 posted.
The first meeting of the Adelaide CSC for the new year will be held on the first Monday of February 2002.

SPECIAL PRICE FOR CHURCHILL'S WAR 2 - Triumph in Adversity: Please note the special price for Churchill's War Vol.2. is $75.00 including GST. The posted price is $80.00. Order from your State book service NOW.
David Irving's "Churchill's War: Volume 2" was launched at The New Times Dinner. The first volume was published in 1987, and after an uneasy birth, the second volume appears 14 years later. The second volume narrates the middle years of World War 2. This work benefits from the release of thousands of secret files. Thus, says Irving, we now know more about Anthony Eden's role in the murder of Admiral Darlan. The human side of Churchill reaches boldly out - lively, incorrigible, sometimes callous - but meek and subservient to Moscow and Washington.
"Vigilance - A Defence of British Liberty": In his review of the book, Anthony Cooney poses the question, "Why have we not specified the penalties of EU treason which will be exacted from both politicians and high-ranking officials when Great Britain is once more free? Those penalties ought to be plainly specified and it ought to be understood that they will be pursued against both the carcasses and estates of deceased traitors. There is plenty of room where Cromwell's skull stood on Tower Hill!" $45.00 posted direct from your State bookmailing centre.
