15 December 2006 Thought for the Week:
Wishing our Readers
a ChristMass full of Joy and Peace
"So far from ignoring the material world, Christ
said He had overcome it. Man did not live by bread alone, but sufficient bread
was essential. "Give us this day our daily bread." God the Father has
provided an abundance of the material things required for the "life more
Life itself is a gift, as are the most important factors
which sustain life - water, air and unlimited solar energy. The failure to accept
God's gifts with proper respect is a manifestation of man's false pride, a refusal
to accept the truth that man is not self-sufficient, that he does depend upon
God and His abundant universe; abundant in materials and the laws which, if discovered
and applied, provide both security and freedom."
THE AWB SAGA 'ROLLS ON'
by Patrick O'Shea
this week Mr. Howard has amazed all interest groups with an answer that only a
highly skilled leader could provide. He has said in a press coverage article (The
Australian 6/12/06) which reads, "Howard Folds on AWB Reform":
W.A. farmers still have 80% of their wheat stored and not committed, which is not unusual. And not because of West Australia's CBH efforts to become big Grain Traders, or that they have already reduced their pool estimates.
Howard has done two things:
How this time
is spent is up to individuals now, as well as the AWB. Grain traders are not essentially
in competition with each other, they are in competition with the growers who are
Encouraging correspondence from Asian importers, some with flourmill interests to the AWB, expressed the desire for the single desk to be maintained. Also, not to let the uncertainty of horse-trading and wild fluctuations creep into wheat sales from Australia, with its undeniable quality.
THE CASE FOR THE SOCIAL CREDIT DIVIDEND
by Alain Pilote, the Michael Journal June-July-August, 2006:
It seems appropriate for the last edition of 2006 that we stress to our readers the relevance of the body of knowledge known as Social Credit Social credit writer Alain Pilote of the French-Canadian "Pilgrims of St. Michael," sums up the compelling need for an adjustment of the present financial system so as to distribute the abundance of the economic system.
A recent Swiss study said: "in thirty years from now, less than 2% of the present workforce will be enough to produce the totality of the goods that people need." Three out of every four workers - from retail clerks to surgeons - will eventually be replaced by computer-guided machines. If the rule that limits the distribution of income to those who are employed is not changed, society is heading for chaos. It would be plain ludicrous to tax 2% of workers to support 98% of unemployed people.
One definitely needs a source of income that is not tied to employment. The case is definitely made for the Social Credit dividend!
A DICTATORSHIP - JUST IN TIME
Chris Floyd, Truthout UK correspondent writes that this gives "the president and his agents the power to capture, torture and imprison forever anyone - American citizens included - whom they arbitrarily decide is an "enemy combatant".
both in Australia and the United States is so vaguely defined that even political
opposition to the US government may count as "terrorism". This coupled with "Executive
Orders" allowing "targeted killing" i.e., assassination, effectively gives President
Bush a licence to kill. Move over James Bond.
IRAQ AND THE FAILURE OF MULTI-ETHNIC NATIONS
Another nail in the coffin of multiculturalism has been struck.
KEATING AND THE EGG-BOX
Australia's immigration programme has largely been devised to make these developers rich. Instead of having a smaller, technologically sophisticated population along the lines of Singapore (i.e., each State a Singapore) Australia has gone for populate and perish.
A recent study by James Giesecke ("The Economic Impact of a General Increase in Skilled Immigration," People and Place, vol.14, no.3, 2006) used a computer model of the Australian economy to examine the economic effects of a hypothetical increase in skilled immigration by 50 per cent over the 2004-2005 level.
was found that the economy expanded proportionally to the skilled migrant intake.
A "skills shortage" would not be solved: "the effect of a general expansion in
skilled immigration is to exacerbate 'skill shortages' (measured by wage rises)
in this sector [i.e., construction] by adding to demand for construction services."
THE GLOBAL WARMING OF THE SOLAR SYSTEMby James Reed
The Uncensored magazine, October 2006 contains an insightful piece, "The Whole Solar System is Undergoing 'Global Warming'".
This is not an unsubstantiated conspiratorial piece: the article cites scientific websites such as NASA and Nature to show that Mars, Jupiter and Pluto are warming up.
As well, the solar system could be entering an interstellar cloud: which may have a cooling effect on the Earth. And meanwhile, back on Earth evolutionary biologist Godfrey Hewitt at Britain's University of East Anglia in Norwich believes that global cooling is on the planetary agenda:
"We're going to get ice one way or the other. It's been going on for millions of years." (The Australian 8/11/06 p.24).
Aaaggh! - the wonderful world of science - take your pick on apocalypses!
FIRE? FIRE? SIT ON YOUR ASSScotland's Fire Services have scrapped hundreds of leaflets after a mistake urged members of the public to jump on a donkey when fleeing a house fire. The leaflet, by the Scottish Executive, was aimed at the community's Urdu speakers. Its advice was that anyone leaving a burning building from a window should lower themselves on to cushions.
However, the authors got the Urdu word for cushion mixed up with the Urdu for donkey. A spokesman for the Strathclyde Fire and Rescue Service said it was grateful the misspelling had been brought to its attention.
WORDS OF WISDOM
Here is a rare gem of a quote which I found in one of the 'life style' columns by Emma Tom of The Australian 8/11/06, p.14. In passing she cites Canadian academic Robert Hare who maintains that "one in 100 people is a card-carrying psychopath, many of whom have successful jobs in high finance."
doesn't mean that these people are necessarily killers, as depicted in fiction
such as "American Psyche". Most of these elites are de-humanised and
amoral. As servants of money they have long ago abandoned their moral duties to
From David Flint's Opinion
Mr. Mayne's speciality has been
in publishing any rumour without testing it, on the basis that he would subsequently
publish any objections. This is of course in breach of all the ethical codes which
apply to responsible journalism in the land. This is hardly the standard one might
expect of someone chosen to participate in such awards.
gracious to a tea:
are told that last week in the Canberra Times, a report by Markus Mannheim
appeared under the headline: "G-G gracious to a tea".
SURGERY - BETTER THAN A CASINO
by James Reed
Shelley Gare has recently published "The Triumph of the Airheads," (Park Street Press) about the decline of basic education standards and much more. Many new university students cannot even write an essay without prior tuition in spelling and grammar. But in general, the "lack of general knowledge among so many of us is now so mind-bogglingly obvious that it has become part of the culture to swap funny stories."
This should be a matter of concern to all of us because how can we educate people about, say, the social credit, when they struggle with the very basics of learning?
