20 February 2004. Thought for the Week: "Why of course people don't want war Naturally That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to do the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."
Hermann Göring quoted in British "On Target" January 2003.

The Hilmer Report and the subsequent Competition Commission are the Australian equivalent of what is being forced on all industrial economies. Section 92 of the Constitution, allowing free trade between the States, is not good enough; the WTO demands uniformity across nations. This has been done with the emergence of a fourth tier of government in Australia, the Council of Australian Governments (COAG), where State Premiers are coerced into legislating by uniform direction. With a central government that openly coerces the States through its monopoly of public credit-allocation, the State governments have no option but to obey or be pauperised. Even their obedience is not enough.
In the face of the constitution, and contrary to the expressed will of the people, Canberra is directly enlisting Local Government, through Regional Organisation Councils (R.O.C.s) into national compliance. Increasingly, Councils are being forced to police the global demands of the WTO, through planning, standardisation and environmental programmes at local level. Mutterings by local councillors who find themselves increasingly constricted by centrally-directed programmes in these areas have been muted by turning Council representation from a voluntary service into a paid profession. Councils are amalgamated and corporatised. High-salary CEOs direct paid-Councillors on what is to be done. The answer to local resistance is centralisation through amalgamation.
The role of another international body,
the International Union of Local Authorities, (l.U.L.A.) is
of increasing importance. The IULA Declaration demands that
Local Government be nationally organised and directed. This
flies in the face of Australia's constitutional arrangements,
which allow the Commonwealth no role in Local Councils."

STAKEHOLDERS AND PROPERTY RIGHTS
After hearing Mark Latham's response
to Kerry O'Brien's question on the 7.30 Report, Thursday 13th
February, 2004 as to his motives in calling for reduced superannuation
perks for future politicians, you would be justified in thinking
Mark has had an 'awakening'. He wasn't in Parliament for the
money but thought politicians should serve the Australian
people. Wow, that's the first time I have heard a politician
say that in many a year!
Let's get a better idea of what is a "Stakeholder Society"; the term is heard often these days. Fabian Socialist Race Matthews used the term in the title of his book: "Jobs of Our Own: Building a Stake-Holder Society." A Fabian Socialist Matthews sought to 'forge historical links' with the Belloc/Chesterton Distributist Movement, and the Antigonish Movement in Nova Scotia and the Mondragon Co-Operative Corporation in the Basque region of Spain. But veteran Distributist, and Social Crediter, Anthony Cooney scotched the claim by showing the reader the socialists still wanted to 'rule the roost' - hardly 'free enterprise'. The Distributist Movement is for widespread property ownership, whereas, the Co-Operatives are something else again. The review of Matthews' book appeared in a Heritage Journal edition under the title, "I Fear No Peevish Master". Well worth a read.
PRODUCTION ON THE BASIS OF PENURYA few words upon the principles of the Economic System as it exists today. They can be broadly summarized by an illustration. Imagine a closed box representing the industrial system, a box in which are all the plant, material, craftsmanship, and other factors for Production. Let there be an outlet from the box through which are to appear those final results of production, which alone can justify the undertaking of any production at all - namely, consumable goods in their widest sense of all means of life, material and cultural.
Let us all stand round the box with slips of paper in our hand bearing the injunction: "You must consume less, so that the box can produce more." What does this mean? Obviously, that we must allow as little to come out of the box as possible. But observe - the injunction says that this is to enable the box to produce more. More what, then? Surely not consumable goods, for these are no use inside the box.
Quite right. It is not consumable goods, but more 'capital' goods - more of the above mentioned factors of production - that are to be produced. In other words, we are to stop up the outlet in order to increase the size of the box. And what then?
Well, we can go on to the next step of making use of the increased productive power of the box to draw out of it - a larger supply of consumable goods? By no means, but to increase still more the size and power of the box . And so ad infinitum. Thus, according to the current economic principle do we become "prosperous". From The New Age 1924.

Banking on Empire, J P Morgan Chase
JP Morgan Chase, which was formed from the merger in December 2000 of one of the world's largest commercial banks, the Chase Manhattan Corporation, and the investment bank J.P. Morgan & Company, declined to comment about its role in the Trade Bank of Iraq.
The Trade Bank of Iraq was formed partially
to replace the trade guarantees established by the United
Nations oil-for-food programme, imposed on Iraq in 1995 during
the sanctions regime against Saddam Hussein.

STAKE-HOLDERS & PROPERTY RIGHTSThe following article by Bevan O'Regan, Moama comes from OZNews, March 2003:
Why do farmers and stakeholder groups try and protect their properties when they already own their land?
The Green Movement have engineered, through the University of Melbourne a plan that has made farmers cringe and believe that groups such as the Department of Land and Water Conservation (DLAWC) and Departments of Natural Resources have somehow been given authority to challenge property owners of their property rights.
Somehow a new control system, "Collaborative Forestry Management" (CFM) have cleverly pieced together a team of bureaucrats to join with people called "stakeholders" (e.g., CWA, Farmers Groups, Local Government) into believing it to be a legitimate organisation.
In NSW this CFM group is using Acts of Parliament to bluff their way and frighten developers of farms not to develop at all. In NSW it is DLAWC and in other states it is mostly Departments of Natural Resources.
This renamed DLAWC body in NSW is using what they believe is an all conquering Act, "The Native Vegetation and Conservation Act 1997" as the instrument to bludgeon farmers into submission. This Act is flawed many times. For instance, Section 50 says farmers can be forced to incriminate themselves under cross examination by a DLAWC officer.
The law books are dotted with case-laws that say no person can be forced to incriminate themselves. Section 61 says that a bureaucrat of the DLAWC can come onto a property and demand property records, take photographs together with soil and plant samples to be used in evidence against the farmer.
Again, utter rubbish.
The law courts are again dotted with case-law of would be and could be government agents failing to observe the Act of Trespass. A property owner is still King of his castle.
In NSW there is one DLAWC officer for every 18 farmers. These officers are mostly trained at Goulburn's Police Academy. To highlight the lack of understanding, we asked a young female DLAWC officer to explain Schedule 4 of the Act she was quoting from. Her answer was she didn't know!
Schedule 4 is a very important clause. It says, "The provision does not operate to effect in a manner prejudicial to any person the rights of that person existing before the date of the publication". This means the government cannot shift the goal posts.
It also means that Local Government with its planning laws and zoning laws guarantees that the purchaser of land is automatically given property rights. These rights in NSW were set in stone as far back as 1979 with the declaration of the "Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979".
What is amazing is that State Planning in 1979 used a Royal Commission into Land Tenure as its basis for continuance of "Property Rights". From the pages of this Royal Commission one reads that by implication of Section 29 of the Magna Carta, the term "existing use rights" and "continuance of use" is the basis for the state's planning.
The use of this 1976 Royal Cormmission which incidentally took 3 years to complete, was implemented in all states as the core document to protect property rights.
It is obvious that we as property owners are being bluffed by "wet behind the ears" university graduates who have been hurriedly pushed into these mushrooming bureaucracies without knowledge of Common Law.
The sad reality is that the people who should be standing up for us such as Local Government and State Parliamentarians are nowhere to be seen. Property owners should shrug off this cringing attitude and the next time they see a bureaucrat driving around in the back paddock, they should take the registration number and report them.
There is a protocol for entering private land. First, a notification by writing and or go directly to the main homestead and report. It is about time that property owners told these bureaucrats who come onto their properties that Local Government issues a zoning certificate. That certificate guarantees your "use right", which then guarantees your right and access to the soil, water and vegetation on your property. These officers who dictate terms other than those of your rights should be told to "move on". They have no right being there.
Australia truly has a rock solid history of property rights dating back to July 1828 when the Common Law of England became domestic law in Australia. What right have quasi-stakeholder groups, orchestrated by an even more quasi-group called the CFM emanating from Melbourne University, have cause for property owners to cringe when they build dams to catch water and clear trees to grow crops. After all, who owns the land?
Tell them to 'move on'!
Not only should property owners tell these CFM stakeholder groups and government officers to "move on", the State Forestry Commission who look after State forests for the Crown should
The State Crown Forests are areas of land set aside by the Crown for use by its people.
The 800 Magna Carta law, mentioned in Sir John Kerr's Royal Commission, clearly states that any person can gather wood for cooking and timber for their houses free of charge and free of royalties. This law is active today, and it came about in the 13th century when the people held a sword to King John's neck and made him create these laws for common people.
Crown state forests should not be made into national parks.
It is quite easy to see these green movement people are not really about saving native pastures or the twin tailed lizards, they are about destroying private property and ownership and state forests.
With the federal government now in control of Native Land Title and the ever increasing national parks, the remaining 13 per cent of freehold land is the final goal of those who motivate this social experiment.
It is interesting to read Ann Williamson's book of how Russia lost their property rights and equate that to our present situation in Australia.
If knowledge be power then let's use that knowledge to inform more of our people of their "rights" and turn around this intolerable situation and inform bureaucrats they are there to serve and not there to dictate. (emphasis added throughout ed).
LETTERS TO EDITOR
Don't believe it can't happen to you:
Countryman, W.A. 5th February, 2004
We must continue to present the first natural law of truth in economics, to repeat the simple truth that the very first objective in economic activity is to utilise natural resources immediately available to hand for the use of citizens who live in the land God has given them. We do not grow cabbages in our backyard to send to Americans quite capable of growing cabbages in their own backyards, and we encourage all people of all nations to grow their own cabbages in their own backyards. That is a first law of freedom.
We know, and must continue to stress, that right relationship between man, money and the economy - what we might call the Holy Trinity of modern society. In that Trinity there must be complete unity in diversity in which the three entities are not confounded, nor the substance divided. Fundamental to that Holy equation, is if we get the use of that "symbol" we call money wrong everything goes haywire. The "symbol" is the connecting rod between man and reality. We do not worship the "symbol", we worship the reality.
The Howard - Bush partnership is an exercise in worshipping unreality. Because their worship is intimately connected with the exercise of power, the result is chaos between man, the economy and God, another variation of the Holy Trinity. Nearly every sane person with whom I discuss the matter, has no hesitation in agreeing that both Howard and Bush are the servants of a power greater than themselves, the power Christ referred to as mammon, or more colloquially today called money. Christ correctly diagnosed this form of insanity as resulting from the futile attempt to worship both God and money. In their worship of money, Howard and Bush, and all who agree with them, have become the servants of mammon. Why does the Christian Church remain silent on this matter? The truth enunciated above should be preached from every pulpit in every church.
There is a serious and momentous question
to answer in this reality. What exactly is the Christian Church?
My understanding is that the Church I worship in every Sunday
is God's repository of truth. If that is so, why then does
it not teach God's truth about the monetary symbol? There
is no doubt in my mind, that if it did, it would turn the
whole world upside down. In the absence of a more effective
mission in life I will continue on from my 81years plus seeking
to effect that miracle.
