Thought for the Week:
C.H. Douglas observed some
70 years ago that the time would come in the lifetimes of many of the people he
was addressing when the forces of Evil would appear to be in the ascendant
Surely that time has come! Will the Opposition and Democrat Members of Parliament
support this anti-Christian legislation? What about the Christian Church? Have
you heard any prelates thundering from the pulpit against the Evils stemming from
our Parliament? We haven't.

CHARLES HONOURS THE QUEEN
The text of the
tribute by Prince Charles to The Queen on her 80th Birthday, 21 April 2006:-
80th birthday is a very special occasion for every family - an occasion for celebration,
for giving thanks and for looking back. As a child, I can just remember my great
grandmother, Queen Mary, at 80; then I recall so well the 80th birthday of my
grandmother in 1980.
"Now I find it hard to believe my own mother, the Queen,
is today celebrating her 80th birthday, and it gives me enormous pride to be able
to congratulate her publicly in this way, and to thank her on behalf of us all
for the many wonderful qualities which she has brought to almost an entire lifetime
of service and dedication to her country, to her family, to the realms and to
the countries of the Commonwealth.
"It is hard
to believe that my grandfather, King George VI, was the same age as I am now when
he died and that my mother succeeded him when so young - the same age, in fact,
as my sons are now.
"And then I have vivid memories of the Coronation; of
my mother coming to say goodnight to my sister and me while wearing the Crown
so that she could get used to its weight on her head before the Coronation ceremony;
of thousands of people gathered in The Mall outside Buckingham Palace chanting
'We want the Queen' and keeping me awake at night; of my parents being away for
long overseas tours during the 1950s and of determined attempts to speak to them
on the telephone in far-distant lands when all you could hear was the faintest
of voices in a veritable storm of crackling and static interference.
so well, too, the excitement of being reunited with our parents when my sister
and I sailed out in the, then, brand new Royal Yacht Britannia to meet them off
Tobruk at the end of their Commonwealth Coronation Tour in 1954 - a tour that
had lasted over six months and taken in 13 countries. And, of course, there was
the thrill - as a small boy - of witnessing the entire Mediterranean Fleet of
the Royal Navy steam past the Royal Yacht at high speed, with my mother and father
waving to all the Ships' Companies from the afterdeck.
"There is no doubt
that the world in which my mother grew up and, indeed, the world in which she
first became Queen, has changed beyond all recognition. But during all those years
she has shown the most remarkable steadfastness and fortitude, always remaining
a figure of reassuring calm and dependability - an example to so many of service,
duty and devotion in a world of sometimes bewildering change and disorientation.
"For very nearly 60 of those 80 years she has been my darling Mama and my
sentiments today are those of a proud and loving son who hopes that you will join
with me in wishing the Queen the happiest of happy birthdays, together with the
fervent prayer that there will be countless memorable returns of the day."
A CHRISTIAN CONCEPT OF SERVICE, DUTY
by Betty Luks
Prince Charles refers to was of course, a Christian Coronation Service, and it
is to Christianity we must look to understand the nature of Kingship and Service
to which our Queen dedicated herself.
The Christian Faith first reached those
ancient shores of Britain early in the first century AD, and it was this Faith
which inspired and moulded the character of the people and influenced their ideas
of Kingship and Service. The teachings of our Lord had put an end to the idea
of State absolutism and led to the development of a concept of human personality
and of liberty that was quite unknown to the ancient world:
"Render unto Caesar
the things that are Caesar and to God the things that are God's."
is of course functionalism. The individual soul is the substantial reality, whereas
the association of human beings, the Group, the Collective, is merely the doing
of something by individuals in association.
If the doing assumes a life of
its own with needs and demands of its own (the result of individuals identifying
themselves with the "Group") the Group becomes a tyranny (such as Jesus demonstrated
in the acted out parable of the Gadarene Swine).
the section Christian Anthropology of his paper "Power and Freedom," Michael
Lane clearly explains the importance of this concept.
"As in (? into) Adam
(Mankind, The Group, The Collective) all men (Individuals) die, so in Christ (Individual
Consciousness and Responsibility) all Men (Individuals) are made Alive."
McNair Wilson - "Monarchy or Money Power" - thought the history of man is the
history of duty, another word for patriotism... Man as patriot - and patrician
- outgrew his earlier gods and the Christian Church prepared him for a new revelation
of duty. Patriotism assumed a new quality of brotherhood and it was to men thus
prepared for His coming that the Lord Jesus gave this concept of Law:
must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with
all your mind. This is the greatest commandment."
· "The second resembles
it: You must love your neighbour as yourself."
both cases, the English word 'love' is translated from the Greek word agapao,
meaning, according to Dr. James Strong's Concordance, "To love in a social or
Agape, Dr. Strong writes: "Governs the judgement and
deliberate assent of the will as a matter of principle, duty and proprietary.
It is an attitude which is governed by specific principles as laid down in law."
The Law of Duty, Two Complementary Aspects
The Christian law presented duty in two complementary aspects, as duty to
God and duty to our fellow men. It made duty synonymous with love, and so raised
it from the devotion of the pagan to his Fatherland (the Group, the Collective,
"Blood and Soil") to the Christian's love of God the Father and mutual love and
co-operation with his fellow man.
Christian civilisation went on to recognize
both the Church and the State. Both, as the vehicles of the Christian law, were
of divine appointment, and the divinity of the one was part of the divinity of
the other and inseparable from it.
Fellowship of a Free Community
The political leaders of a united Kingdom,
along with the bishops and priests of the Church, from the nature of the service
demanded of them, became privileged bodies, possessing rights and privileges derived
from and dependent on their duties. In other words, their privileges and rights
stem from their service due to God and their People!
Apart from that duty
to God and their People, the rights and privileges enjoyed by those in Office,
whether Church or State, are not lawful (in a moral or ethical sense) and cannot
be sustained (i.e., without force - as this generation will come to learn through
It is the Grace of God which arms the King with his strength
and raises him above all his People as that enduring embodiment of a United Kingdom.
Democracy, if it means anything, means that the rights and privileges with which
the King and his Ministers serve both God and the People, stem from that service.
We as a people will come to realise, we either build our House on a solid
foundation, or, like any other structure built on sand, the House will crumble
and be washed away by the tides of history.
It is so as Prince Charles
said of his mother our Queen: "(The Queen) has brought almost an entire lifetime
of service and dedication to her country, to her family, to the realms and to
the countries of the Commonwealth."
THREE "WISE" MONKEYS
by James Reed
was entirely predictable. The deputy Prime Minister Mark Vaile said in evidence
before the Cole Inquiry into the AWB kickbacks scandal that he was "surprised"
he was not told of warnings six years ago about the contractual irregularities.
Vaile had not seen the batch of 21 confidential diplomatic cables sent since 2000.
You see he was too busy dealing with World Trade Organization talks. Surely this
ministerial disgrace, with the failing ability to do his job, should be helped
in his time of decline, by being relieved of the stresses and strains of office
through being "fired".
Alexander Downer tried
a more gutsy strategy. He declared that his department "did a good job, despite
allowing the AWB to grease Saddam Hussein's oily palm with $300 million in bribes.
Further, Downer like Vaile, couldn't remember reading the 21 diplomatic cables.
The South Australian "blue-blood" "aristocrat" with the "toffy accent" (as journalist
Gerard McManus described him : The Advertiser 12 April 2006, p.6) appeared
to say at one point: "I would rarely read summaries of cables." Downer's lawyers
corrected the transcript to read: "I would really read summaries of cables." As
a sub-headline in The Australian 12 April 2006, p.1 put it, quoting Downer
: "It is a very major challenge to deal with intelligence." Indeed it is.
Howard's evidence and performance was true to his form. As the head of the team
of the three wise monkeys he didn't know about the kickbacks as well. Issuing
bland, dry denials he didn't furnish any remarks that lent themselves to satire.
Typical of the dry, bland man.
WAS A DIRTY WHITE MALE RACIST CAPITALIST : DISCUSS:
One of Australia's most elite high schools, SCEGGS Darlinghurst,
an independent Anglican girls' school in inner Sydney, set an assessment task
in March for the year 11 advanced English students requiring them to interpret
Othello from Marxist, feminist and racial perspectives. (The Weekend Australian
15-16/4/06, p.1, "Elite Girls' School Kills the Bard"). This has led US academic
Harold Bloom to pronounce that the study of literature is dead in Australian schools.
"I find the question sublimely stupid. It is another indication that literary
study has died in Australia." This is not news to us.
the debate which followed, various bureaucrats in the education hierarchy defended
the setting of the question. Use of Marxism, feminism and anti-racism is all part
and parcel of modern indoctrination - oops, sorry, education. The role of Blacks,
women and workers can all be understood using these (left-wing) theories it was
Poet Les Murray is quoted as saying that
this incident shows that the dominant ideology at Australian schools is Marxism
and a "perverse egalitarianism" that levels quality. Again, this is not news to
us. Day-by-day the decay of Australian education continues.
The long march
by the leftists/feminists/commos through the institutions is complete. The only
hope for Australian children lies with the home schooling movement. Young impressionable
minds must not enter the vat of poison that our schools have become. And I haven't
even mentioned bullying, sexual harassment of Anglo girls by ethnics, feminist
teachers destroying young boys, the drug problems, etc., etc.
SMILE BABY, IT WON'T HURT YOU A BIT
According to a study in the British Medical Journal, the
foetus does not feel pain before 26 weeks. This is allegedly so even though the
foetus' body can respond to "discomfort". The review has come as the US considers
legislation that requires a doctor to tell women seeking an abortion that the
procedure of slicing and dicing the unborn child will cause pain to the unborn
child. The legislation would also make it mandatory that pain-reducing drugs be
used for abortion of foetuses older than 22 weeks.
The psychologist conducting
the review has said that these measures would expose women to inappropriate distress.
The mind must be fully developed before pain can be felt. "Experiencing pain is
more than simply producing a biological response to a stimulus. It is something
that comes from our experiences and develops due to stimulation and human interaction."
(The Weekend Australian, 15-16/4/06, p.3) Ideological nonsense!
is not a social construction, but is a basic neurological response. Babies born
with brain damage which impairs learned experiences still respond to pain. The
same style of argument used to legitimate abortion would justify infanticide.
And, to push things to the extreme, how do we really know, in a philosophical
sense, that "learned" doctors pushing abortion have minds and learned experiences
Couldn't they be merely sophisticated flesh-robots that emit verbal
responses when the appropriate buttons are pushed? According to my old Dictionary
of Philosophy left over from university days in the 60s this is called the
problem of "other minds". The sceptical arguments used to eliminate foetal humanity
ultimately lead to an elimination of our own humanity.
THE NEW DARK AGE OF DEMOCRACYby
Ian Wilson LL.B.
The Sydney Institute's Gerard Henderson recently spoke at
the NSW Fabian Society on the alleged failed predictions of a dark age of democracy
arising from the national security legislation (The Australian 30/3/06
p.13). Henderson makes the point that the dire predictions of political oppression
arising from sedition laws "remain unfulfilled." But surely it is only early days
yet and it is far too soon to be so dismissive of prophecies made by both left
In any case, actual oppression is not the main objection to these laws.
The main objection is a legal and philosophical objection to the clear potential
infringement of human freedom. That these laws threaten freedom is objection enough.
The powers of these laws are "sleepers" that could be used against any of
us, left or right' at any time. Henderson has missed the point.
THE JOYS OF DIVERSITY
Here is a story which never reached our newspapers.
found out about it when I went to England recently. In Birmingham, UK in October
2005, a race riot occurred between Asians and Blacks. It was ignited by claims
that a 14-year old Black girl had been sexually attacked by an Asian. Blacks responded
by attacking Asians. The Asians responded in kind : one Black man was knifed to
death by an Asian gang.
The media had a
problem: White racism couldn't meaningfully blamed. Consequently the media
ignored the story putting it in the "too hard basket".
However it is well
known that there is conflict between Sikhs, Hindus and Muslims. Asians are often
in conflict with African immigrants such as Somalis. Turks and Far Eastern Asian
gangs battle it out in London and other cities.
The liberals ignore this conflict,
which can be observed by anyone with their eyes open in the UK, because it shows
that the multicultural dream is really a nightmare.
The same situation, which
is not reflected in Australian Bureau of Statistics crime statistics, occurs in
Australia, but is also ignored by our own ethnic (and Anglo) multicultural elite.
R.I.P. MY BELOVED
by John Steele
The media has recently
reminded us that is has been ten years since the Port Arthur massacre. The
Weekend Australian Magazine published a piece on the alleged killer Martin
Bryant, the mentally defective youth, whom the establishment said killed 35 people.
This event was used by John Howard to disarm the Australian population.
the logic: an alleged madman kills, so everybody has to surrender their weapons.
Not a blip about the fact that if even one person was armed that day the massacre
may not have occurred at all. Repeatedly in the US, similar massacres have been
prevented by armed citizens foiling such attempts. But not in Australia : our
population must be bound and gagged for the fate that the New World Order has
prepared for us.
It is a matter of fact the
homicide rate in Australia and the suicide rate has not changed much since the
Port Arthur gun grab. (The Australian 3/4/06, p.3) In any case, hand guns
- are "responsible" for most of these deaths - sure, the guns just jumped up and
pulled their own triggers!
Hand guns in Sydney - all illegal - are used by
organised crime and in gang wars between warring ethnics. So how did taking my
assault rifles make Australia safer?
be trusted with a gun to defend Australia as a soldier, but I am not trusted by
Johnny Howard to have a gun to defend myself. Sure, I can get a gun to shoot rabbits,
a single shot bolt action '22 - but I have never been home-invaded by a rabbit.
Those folk in New Orleans, not bashed and raped by roaming gangs, in the wake
of Hurricane Katrina, were folk who had a firearm. The thugs just passed them
by to prey on somebody else who didn't have a gun.
late Joe Vialls questioned the whole received story about Port Arthur. Other internet
writers have done the same. Some have questioned Vialls' identity, whilst still
doubting the Port Arthur official story. Whatever the truth of the matter, we
can be sure it will not emerge soon. The event of Port Arthur has served its grisly
However the Australian population is not safer from the gun bans.
The criminals have even more illegal weapons than before. The decent citizens
have no effective weapons for self-defence.
In Victoria, legislation has outlawed,
effectively, swords and knives as weapons. The authorities are now trying to ban
knives, including kitchen knives that have a point. Again, they tell you, it's
for your own safety. After all, you wouldn't want to cut yourself, would you?
PLAY IT AGAIN,
TONY AND GEORGEby James Reed
Tony Blair delivered a speech justifying the war in Iraq. He attempted to link
the war with toppled Saddam Hussein with the global war against terrorism. That
there was no evidence to link Saddam Hussein to the "9/11" attack on the Twin
Towers of Global Capitalism, did not deter Tony.
Nor did the rising death
toll of Western troops and Iraqis move him. Recently, when asked by journalists
if he would do it again he said, "I most certainly would."
Sure he would.
He does what he is told to do by the financial elite who control the fate of humanity.
The creed of his brotherhood is the new golden rule: those with the "gold" rule
and those without, pull (i.e. labour).
CHRISTIANITY AND AFGHANISTANby James Reed
Remember Afghanistan? That's the place where, according to President Bush democracy
now flourishes. Tell that to Abdul Rahman, a man who faces execution after converting
to Christianity from Islam. According to a "moderate" Abdul Raoulf - apparently
no relative - as told to The Washington Post:
"Cut off his head
we will call on the people to pull him to pieces so there's nothing left."
execution violates the Afghan constitution which grants people the right of religious
freedom. Democracy? It just goes to show that you can prod an Afghan camel to
water with a missile, but you can't make it drink.
RETIRED U.S. GENERAL CALLS FOR HIS FELLOW AMERICANS
"Retired Air Force General Warns
Another 'Terrorist Attack' On Horizon As Trotskyites Within Government On The
Move To Destroy America," by Greg Szymanski, 28-4-06:
"A slow, meticulous
and patient takeover of the United States is now under way by a group of Trotskyites
embedded in the government using terrorism as a means of "fear and control," according
to a retired Air Force General. And the only way to defeat them, said Gen. Ben
Parton, is to immediately take back the political process from the treasonous
hijackers before it's too late and America is turned into a fascist state. Gen.
Parton added the insidious onslaught on freedom is well underway and the initial
groundwork of "manipulation and takeover" is clearly visible with events like
Ruby Ridge, Waco, Oklahoma City, the first WTC bombing and 911.
And now Americans
should brace themselves for bigger and more bloody terrorist acts, as the New
World Order is not yet finished with its diabolical plan to destroy America from
Coming from a civilian these ominous
sounding words may go in one ear and out the other. But coming from a General
with more than 30 years of active service, the only real question remaining is
not if but when the next 911 will take place? They are not finished with us yet
and there will be another terrorist attack," said Gen. Parton in an interview
this week on Greg Szymanski's radio show, The Investigative Journal.

they are very patient while calculating every move in order to eliminate any chance

take Back the Political Process
Saying the U.S. government and its intelligence
agencies have been infiltrated by New World Order minions and strategists, he
warns America's only chance for survival is a quick takeover of the government,
not a military coup or revolution as both will fail due to power structure set
up by the enemy.
"It boils down to this: the American people need to take
back the political process or the New World Order will succeed," added Gen. Parton.
The New World Order program, according to Gen. Parton, is nothing new and can
be traced to the writings of Leon Trotsky in the 1928 Program of the Communist
He said the Trotsky plan has been adopted throughout
the world, including by those now in command of the U.S., who are pushing the
world towards a one world government, meaning the end of liberty, freedom and
the American way."
IRVING FIRES LAWYER AND SUFFERS FURTHER HARRASSMENTPolitical
prisoner David Irving, a world famous historian now serving three years in an
Austrian prison for denying Austria's new state religion of holocaust, has fired
his old lawyer and taken on a real fighter.
Lady Michele Renouf reports:
"Good news is that David Irving has dumped his left-wing lawyer Dr Kresbach
who had issued no protest about the inhuman ban on Irving making any phone calls,
even to his family, as punishment for giving press interviews, unless he submits
the telephone number and his request to the prison authorities at least a week
Even so, his elder brother waited in all day for such a pre-arranged
call Easter Sunday and got that call when he was out, one week later! There are
urgent family, serious legal and business matters about which we need Mr. Irving's
authorisation and input to act in his family and future interests.
has replaced Kresbach with Dr Herbert Schaller, the veteran (80 years old) Austrian
lawyer he had in the 1980s (and who Ernst Zundel has, though Judge Meinerzhagen
wanted him thrown out as "too old"!). Good man. He was in the public gallery during
David Irving's trial."
By all accounts Dr. Schaller is a real alte kampfer
- an old fighter, just the sort of scrapper a scrapper like David Irving needs.
Mr. Irving's case - an appeal against his three year sentence - comes up in September.
TWO CHARGED FOR 'HOLOCAUST'
DENIALGerman prosecutors say they have charged
a German 'far-right' activist, extradited from the United States, and a Belgian
man, handed over by the Netherlands, with incitement for allegedly denying the
Holocaust. Prosecutors in the western city of Mannheim said Germar Rudolf and
Siegfried Verbeke were accused of "systematically" denying or playing down the
Nazi genocide of Europe's Jews in documents and on the internet, and of stirring
anti-Semitic hatred. Denying the Holocaust is a crime in Germany. It carries a
maximum sentence of five years imprisonment. Rudolf, 41, published a study claiming
to prove that the Nazis did not gas Jews at the Auschwitz concentration camp.
He was deported to Germany from the US in November, to serve a 14-month prison
sentence for a 1995 conviction on similar charges. Verbeke, 64, was arrested in
the Netherlands and also extradited to Germany in November. As readers will know,
prosecutors in Mannheim are leading a similar, but unrelated case, against Ernst
Zundel, deported from Canada last year.
TO THE EDITOR
In your last
Issue No.16 of "On Target" you had a nice article by James Reid
called 'Pig Iron John'. I suppose that was in relation to Bob Menzies being called
that, because he sold pig iron to Japan (?) and got it back as bombs.
Howard should from now on be called "Yellow Cake John", because he runs
the danger of getting it back the same way as Bob.
But the poor guy can't help
himself, he has sworn to stick to big business and that's what they demand of
him - and get. They have paid him already to do that.
No point to being on
the side of the small people, they get taken out already to the limit. Any more,
and there might be a revolution.
Regards, Manfred Schoen - email.
NOTE OF EXPLANATIONI have received queries about
the New Testament passage used in last week's On Target. From whence did
I get my authority to paraphrase the passage from 1 Timothy, 6?
for money (i.e., the benefits and worldly power it brings) in terms of personal
advancement, above all other considerations, is the root of all kinds of evil."
Guided by Clifford Douglas' advice that we must get a 'just relationship between
the mind and things' I made a study of the words in relation to historical events.
According to Dr. James Strong's Concordance:
The word phileo
(contains the meaning of: preference for in terms of personal advancement) and
urgia (Greek for silver).
Mammon is the word used for this world
power exercised through control of the financial system - as it has been doing
for centuries! Tolkien's One Ring to bind them all.
