March 2006 Thought for the Week:
"Man, seeing himself as part
of a "cosmic spiritual drama," and feeling his power to make history,
developed an historical and scientific habit of mind; and the fact of a common
culture without political or economic uniformity, produced the unique diversity
in unity which has been Europe. The trend now is to political and economic uniformity
without cultural and spiritual unity
The differences between Christians
and Pagans or Moslems had not been one of race or language, but a gulf between
two spiritual worlds. The transition had been a change not only of religious beliefs
but of laws, customs, art, even a new script
The secularist tendency
of the last three centuries had detached some Christian principles from their
context - the rights of man, liberty, equality (before God), social justice; when
the lack of an independent basis for these ideas was realised, men turned to nationalism,
class, or race, starting a new world of exclusive antagonistic ideologies which
undermine the very existence of Western civilisation."
Sir David Kelly
in "The Hungry Sheep," 1955.
THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME
Clash of Civilisations? What clash of civilisations? Not
here in Australia, my multicultural mate! That is the thesis of multiculturalist
George Megalogenis. ("Comedy of Terrors," The Weekend Australian,
11-12/2/06, p.20). Sure there may be conflict overseas, but Australia has been
the real multicultural success story. Wave after wave of migrants has been injected
into the Australian population with no problems at all - meaning - that the dominant
Anglo-Saxon population has not resorted to violence against them! With such a
low standard of success how can one lose? After all, the Anglo Saxons in Australia
have accepted the lies about the changing of the White Australia policy. Malcolm
Fraser has said that if politicians were open about the abandonment of this policy
then we would never have had the Greeks and the Italians here - and where would
that have left George?
Megalogenis is not a megagenius to observe that Australia
did not experience the riots and murders seen elsewhere in the world. Australia
does not have the high concentration of Muslims as France and lacks the hard core
extremists that Europe has, or at least in great numbers. Megalogenis claims that
the cartoons were published in Australia in Queensland and on Tim Blair's website.
However no Australian newspaper published all the cartoons and Brisbane's
Courier- Mail printed only one.
The authorities also kept a tight lid
on the situation after the Cronulla race riots. (But as a test case, how about
The Australian newspaper publishing all twelve cartoons on its front page?
Let's see what happens then. George could even write the cover story.)
does not show that Australia's multiculturalism will continue to be a "success"
even by his low re-definition of the term. To date Australian elites have got
away with their programme of ethnic warfare and racial dilution of the Anglo population
by the Fabian socialist strategy of bringing in relatively small numbers per annum
of a diverse number of racial and ethnic groups. A divide and conquer strategy.
But this situation has changed.
Howard's 'asianisation' of Australia:
Paul Keating in 1996 Arabs accounted for 7.7 per cent of the annual immigration
intake. Under John Howard in 2004-2005 the figure rose to 10.5 per cent. The Howard
government has run in its term of office a "Yellow-brown Australia policy"
with the Asian component (not counting Middle Easterners) exceeding 70 per cent
for most years.**
According to Megalogenis the most efficient weapon available
to counter the clash of civilisations is "immigration because there will
always be more Muslims queuing for a visa than for a vest of dynamite."
sentiment misses the point: when numbers of an ethnic minority reach a certain
poorly defined threshold a quantum change occurs in their group behaviour. This
has been seen in Europe where in places like Holland with large Muslim populations
there is an emergent demand for Sharia law.
Wassim Doureihi, the Australian spokesman for the radical Islamist group Hizb
ut-Tahrir, has said: "There is no possibility of harmonious co-existence
between Islam and the West because there is a fundamental conflict. Ultimately
one has to prevail."
Megalogenis' multiculturalism is incapable of dealing
with groups who reject multiculturalism, the rule of law and Enlightenment values.
His only "solution" is to replicate the conflict witnessed elsewhere
by advocating even more immigration.
This is a form of multiculturalism which
is truly "fundamentalist" and irrational: cure the disease by administering

MULTICULTURALISM CONTINUES TO CRACK
The Cronulla race riots and now the "cartoon crisis" - multiculturalism
has taken a beating and this is early days yet! What will the world be like when
(not if) an Islamist terrorist atomic bomb vapourises New York (said by terrorist
experts to be their most likely target)? Will a nuclear armed Iran level Israel
and make Europe glow with the fall out? Such questions are no longer the domain
of paranoid cranks, but are real and troublesome issues worrying security experts.
Destruction by terrorist weapons of mass destruction is balanced on the scale
of terror by weapons of multicultural destruction, which can equally as effectively
level a society and civilisation. The elites and new class are starting to get
worried about multiculturalism. For example, The Australian 10//2/06, p.6 features
two articles from surprising sources which indicate some shift of ground.
Costello, a well known supporter of most things I hate, although arguing that
the "cartoonist crisis" is not an argument to show that Muslims aren't ready for
democracy, says something very important about freedom of speech:
and free press are only free if that freedom includes the freedom to be offensive
and irresponsible. Sure they can and should be criticised if they are either or
both, but that does not mean they cannot publish what they want."
are limits to this is obvious, but they are extremely narrow. Vilification, even
hateful, racist, sexist or religious vilification, should not be an offence in
my view. Nor should Holocaust denial."
A brave defence of free speech indeed
but not one likely to make the Zionist lobby happy.
State Labor MPs, Rachel Nolan, Andrew McNamara and Craig Wallace put it bluntly
in their article "Foster National Values, Ditch Multiculturalism". They say that
the "abuse of bikini-clad women by Muslim men on Sydney beaches has brought the
clash of cultures much closer to our suburban homes." Multiculturalism is a policy
"that pushes acceptance of difference as an end in itself" and this is "a hopelessly
inadequate moral and cultural guide." Further, it "is completely unable to deal
with ethnic cultures that won't implicitly accept Australia's core values."
was essentially the critique of multiculturalism which Professor Blainey and other
conservatives made in the 1980s.
though, these Labor MPs go on to say that the ethnically diverse US "has no real
fear of a home-grown terrorist blowing up a train" because of an integration of
migrants into core cultural/national values. Now, although this is better than
multiculturalism, it is still, in my opinion, no cast iron protection from terrorism.
Have they forgotten that a White man Tim McVeigh (allegedly - there are a
lot of conspiracy theories on this) blew up a federal building in Oklahoma City
and McVeigh was a brave soldier and patriot? All that said and done, it is an
eye-opener to see the conservative critique of multiculturalism now being made
by members of the Australian left.
WHAT WE ALL KNOWby Brian Simpson
long last! A Middle Eastern man has been arrested in regard to the stabbings of
six White teenagers in the car park behind Bondi Beach. The NSW Opposition Leader
Peter Debnam said that "Middle Eastern thugs have been running riot for about
10 years." He also said:
"There's a subculture of increasingly brazen Middle
Eastern young men who will have a go at anyone."
Anyone? Does that mean that
in the future these young lions will "have a go at the glazed-eyed, left wing,
multicultural politically correct, guilt-ridden ideologues that pose as intellectuals
in our McUniversities (once known as "ivory towers" but now resembling something
out of The Two Towers by Tolkien)?
If this cultural catastrophe happens, will
Australian Studies brainwashing books for undergraduates still see the young lions
as "victims of racism"? On this hot and steamy Saturday afternoon in Southern
Sydney, I ponder these questions and others, my meditations interrupted only by
the sounds of screams, gunshots and the arguments of drug dealers.
A DIRTY STORY
"Generation Sex," (The Age Good Weekend 11/2/06) is about
female "raunch culture". This grotty article is about the sexual practices of
the new generation of females aged 20-plus. Readers of our type of periodicals
probably are not in touch with what is happening in the great public toilet of
youth culture: designer drugs, lesbianism, oral and anal sex, internet pornography,
all wrapped up in consumerism, feminism and every politically correct ideology
Any one of these cancers would be
a major threat to the future of the race, but we unfortunately have all these
diseases at once. This culture of decadence is leading to the breakdown of marriage
and the family as well as an enduring drug culture which keeps the coffers of
the ethnic warlords ever-over flowing.
This situation of social anomaly and
fundamental breakdown in values is seldom even recognised in freedom movement
publications and it is already accepted as "normal" in the standard establishment
conservative scribble sheets. It strikes me that this problem is in many ways
more fundamental than the usual economic issues (e.g. Telstra, AWB, etc., etc.)
that concern us. These young people are supposed to carry the flame of civilisation
but they are essentially techno-savages.
Fortunately, the decadent youth,
although sizeable in number and highly influential, does not constitute the bulk
of young people. More than ever there is a need for people from 'our' side of
politics to reach out to youth because at present the Socialist left/greens have
them all to themselves. The political situation is changing, and now as never
before, they need to hear what we have to say.
THE HIGH COURT AND HISTORIANS
an article by David Flint, Australians for Constitutional Monarchy:
was an extraordinary case both as to its conclusion, and the process the judges
adopted in coming to their decision in a case apparently limited to the rights
of certain Torres Straits Islanders, who were not nomads. The judges, or at least
a majority of them, did their own research, apparently relying on historical texts
which O'Connor says are wrong.
Alone, Sir Daryl Dawson said that Aboriginal
land rights were a matter for legislation, not for judicial interpretation.
decided that native title survived the British acquisition in relation to land
the Crown had not alienated by way of grants. It therefore seemed to affect Crown
land only. This was dramatically extended in the Wik Case, where the Court was
almost evenly balanced, 4:3. There the Court held that native title existed not
only on Crown land, but also co-existed with leasehold title held principally
by farmers. This led to hotly debated changes to the native titles' legislation
which had been introduced by the Keating Government as a result of Mabo).
the case, it has been widely accepted that terra nullius was the defining
doctrine used by the British both to justify their acquisition of Australia and
the system of land law they introduced. This assumed all land was vested in the
Crown, which could then make grants to the settlers. The orthodox view today in
the schools and universities is that the High Court has conclusively demonstrated
that the British were in error in determining that Australia was terra nullius,
and that accordingly the birth of our nation, almost alone in the world, is legally
tainted. The High Court did not rule that the acquisition was illegal -it could
not. Its own authority ultimately derived from the settlement. But its conclusion
that the British were wrong to assume that Australia was terra nullius
and that no land rights survived has led establishment historians to come to this
Terra Nullius invention
Michael Connor argues
that all this is based on a judicial fallacy. In his new book, "The Invention
of Terra Nullius," (Macleay Books, 2005), Connor claims that terra nullius
was surreptitiously introduced into political and legal debate as recently as
the 1970s. Most of the original owners or occupiers of land across the world have
been dispossessed by their successors. This is true on all continents. As international
law developed, the right of a state to annex territory came to be limited, particularly
in the twentieth century.
Mabo 'hangs on'
international law at time of settlement
But the Mabo case hangs on the
state of international law, not today, but at the time of the settlement. At that
time, a state could, under international law, annex territory, occupied or not.
The concept of terra nullius, the right of a state to occupy land without
a sovereign, peopled or not, arose well after the settlement.
the British made no judgement as to whether or not Australia constituted terra
nullius; they had not heard of such a concept because it did not exist. The
Australian asked me to write on this, my piece appearing on 10 February, 2006:
(Note that the internet version contains a minor misprint in transposing the
French term territoire sans maître )
will agree with Michael Connor, or indeed with my conclusions, which of course
are not ACM's. The historical question is whether the British, as the basis of
their acquisition, and for the purposes of land law, determined Australia to be
terra nullius? After all, that is the 'received truth' which is being taught today.
There is no evidence that they did
has nothing to do with the compelling argument that Aboriginal Australians are
entitled to the same rights and opportunities as all other Australians. Nor is
it a critique of the early administrators, who were, by the standards of the time
enlightened - and instructed to be enlightened by the Colonial Office - in the
treatment of the indigenous people.
is not just an academic argument
Since Mabo, the suggestion is that the
birth of our nation, unlike the acquisition of just about every other square inch
of the earth, was somehow tainted under the law of nations, international law
then prevailing. This is not so.
Almost alone among the nations, a considerable
proportion of the people and especially our youth, have been taught and are being
taught to labour under a burden of guilt about the birth of Australia. If this
is based on a fallacy, as I think Connor clearly demonstrates, this burden should
be lifted. (There may be a legal consequence for those deleteriously affected
by Mabo, which I mention in my piece).
At the very least, the schools
and universities, and the media are under an ethical obligation to ensure Australians
and foreign scholars are at least aware of Connor's thesis.
May we expect
scholars such as Michael Connor and Keith Windschuttle to be, say, ABC Boyer lecturers,
in the coming years? Will they be offered platforms in our universities and on
our public broadcasters. Most importantly, will their works be prescribed as a
text or reference by academia?
Rather, I suspect these works will be proscribed
both by the media and the academy, with certain honourable exceptions. And I repeat,
less there be any misunderstanding, acceptance of Connor's argument does not mean,
and should not be taken to mean, that the nation should not continue to address
the discrepancy in the living standards of the indigenous people." (emphasis added
GOOD IF YOU CAN

Former premier Bob
Carr still has a full-time police body-guard six months after becoming a private
citizen. This is at a cost to tax payers of $150,000 a year, according to The
Sunday Telegraph (5/2/06). This is allegedly because of Carr's stand on terrorism,
even though senior police cited by The Sunday Telegraph said that there
was no evidence of any threat to the former NSW premier.
Carr apparently earns
$500,000 a year as a consultant to Macquarie Bank and is entitled to a parliamentary

LETTER FROM DAVID IRVING
Irving: Defiant & Determined, Release Date: 27/02/06:
is a letter received by a good supporter of political prisoner David Irving, now
languishing under a three year sentence in an Austrian jail. His crime - in 1989,
"denying the holocaust" - the new secular religion of much of the West.
This letter was written just before Mr. Irving went on trial and explains his
intentions to plead guilty, Paul Fromm, Canada:
I have received
around 600 letters, but yours was one that I was looking out for!
days time, they will hold the trial. (I have been in a 2 X 2.5m metal box for
the last 100 days after being forced off the road by several carloads of police
and arrested at gunpoint. So much for the land of "The Sound of Music"!)
will be a difficult trial because the world's press will be there (February 20
and perhaps 21) which adds to the macabre theatre. I have to plea guilty, there
is no alternative: if a crazy police-state enacts a law against wearing brown
neckties, and an unwitting Englishman came 17 years ago wearing a (gasp!) brown
necktie, then of course he is going to find himself arrested at gunpoint (8.9
mm Glock pistols pointed at my head!) when he comes next time 17 years later.
There is now no way of pleading innocent to that. I refuse to allow any foreign
government to dictate to me what I may think, say, or write. That is what this
is all about. To Americans this whole situation must appear totally remote from
I have had to explain to Jessica (12)
that I am in prison because of an opinion I expressed 17 years before I ever met
As for the other details, you will appreciate there is a lot I
would like to say in a letter but cannot because all mail to and from me is read
by prison censorship.
I suspect I was lured to Austria as a trap, an ambush.
There is a lot of evidence pointing in that direction. I have not heard a single
word from Olympia, the student body which (seemingly) invited me to come and lecture
on November 11; no letter, no visit, nothing! I warned them in e-mails that I
would not talk about the "Holocaust" even if their members asked questions.
I have so far been able to get a lot of work done, on memoirs, the "Himmler"
biography, and "Churchill". This whole situation is a disaster for the
reputation of Austria, because many intellectuals around the world, including
left-wingers have openly criticised my arrest.
I am in fine spirits, and not
about to go down. In the exercise yard the murderers, rapists, cocaine-dealers
and robbers ask, "What you in for!' and I feel such a wimp saying it is because
of an opinion I expressed on history seventeen years ago. "Oh, right then!"
they say, and go shuffling off looking for a real criminal to walk round the yard
Wait until you see the outcome of February 20, so you can see what address
to reply to. I am hoping it will not be here. The cost to me has already been
around $100,000 in lost contracts, and the like. The Austrians are bad folks ....
GAMES AND THE ROYAL ANTHEM
Mr. Phillip Benwell
has written the following letter to:
Mr Ron Walker AC, Chairman, Melbourne
2006 Commonwealth Games Corporation, South Melbourne Vic 3205. 28/2/2006.
Reference is made to a statement attributed to a M2006 spokeswoman:
"We are not required to play the English National Anthem at the opening ceremony
and we shall not be playing the English National Anthem at the Opening Ceremony"
It is disappointing that the slogan adopted by the Commonwealth Games 2006
"United by the Moment' has been slighted even before the Games have begun by these
undiplomatic, incorrect and most offensive comments which surely could have been
couched in less aggressive terminology.
In the first instance 'God Save The
Queen' is not the English National Anthem but that of the British. It is also
the Royal Anthem of Australia.
The statement could perhaps have been better
worded by issuing a statement along the lines of: "It has been deemed not to be
appropriate to play the Royal Anthem as it is also the National Anthem of Great
Britain against whom Australia is competing and Buckingham Palace have concurred
that 'Advance Australia Fair' should be played."
Yours sincerely, Philip Benwell

an 'anthem' is a prayer, a hymn, a song of praise to God, a saint or a nation.
The Australian national 'anthem' was originally introduced by Bob Hawke's Fabian
socialist government as the National Song, and it does not mention God. Not too
many saints that I can see either!.

S.A. STATE ELECTIONSIt
is predicted the Rann Labor government will be returned on 18th March. The rumour
is widely circulated that the Liberals are 'cash-strapped' and appealing for funds
'no matter how small'.
We know it is a case of 'tweedle dee and/or tweedle
dumber', but the Liberals can't say they don't deserve to be out in the political
wilderness. Their fall from favour has something to do with the sell-off of South
Australia's assets such as ETSA (Electricity Trust of South Australia).
an extreme heat wave this summer many families experienced power failures to their
homes for lengthy periods of time.
In a letter to The Advertiser,
31/1/06 a Mr. Richard Bennett of McLaren Vale said it all:
"In an emergency
Premier Mike Rann would, no doubt, recall Parliament. Hot weather in summer and
power failures are not, in my opinion, the key issues to recall Parliament. Hot
weather in summer and power failures stemming from a privatised public asset maximising
its profits should be expected.
What is unexpected is that the former Liberal
government gave ETSA a period of two hundred years to take our money overseas
while experimenting with efficient power delivery. It would be more to the point
to recall John Olsen and ask him why he wanted to give eight generations of South
Australians dodgy power delivery."
