23 March 2007 Thought for the Week:
of nations would impoverish us no less than if all men became alike with one nature
and one face. Nations are the wealth of mankind, its collective personalities;
the very least of them wears its own special colours and bears within itself a
special facet of God's design."
MULTIRACIAL SOCIETIES: THE REAL STORY
by James Reed
Leigh goes on to note: "In particular, neighbourhoods where many languages are spoken tend to have lower levels of trust, suggesting that the main issue may be whether people can communicate effectively with those living nearby. The effect of diversity operates on immigrants and locals alike. In more linguistically diverse suburbs, both foreign born and Australian-born respondents are less inclined to trust those around them." Research from across the world confirms the negative relationship between trust and ethnic diversity.
However Leigh does not conclude that a fatal mistake has been made in constructing multiracial societies in the first place. He repeats the mantra that high immigration will continue to benefit Australia, even though "English will not be the native language of most new Australian immigrants," and "higher diversity will lead to lower levels of interpersonal trust." Policy makers must "maintain the high levels of immigration while mitigating the impact on our social fabric." Like Putnam, he hopes that race and ethnicity will become less important over time. Paul Frijters and Tony Beatton have published a reply to Leigh ("Double Standard Over Diversity" The Australian 14/2/07 p.27) in the context of a discussion of intellectual conformity, getting "sucked into simply stating things that go along with what is commonly believed but are not really self-evident at all."
For example, they rightly take economist Andrew Leigh to task for making various platitudes about the advantages of ethnic diversity. Typical of the multiculturalists, Leigh says "our restaurants would be bland imitations of themselves without the flavours brought by successive waves of Italian, Thai and Vietnamese immigrants."
"argument from cooking" is stupid beyond belief, but it is chant of the new class
who, loaded with our money from taxes, just love their wining and dining. Frijters
and Beatton point out that this argument is just based on gut feeling for a "century
ago in England there might well have been 100 intricate ways to cook a parsnip;
today you can't buy one in most shops."
Yet a learned academic feels compelled to roll out such nonsense. Likewise Leigh cannot face the logical consequences of his own research. Increasing diversity acts as a social acid, corroding the social capital of trust. Pushed to the limit, which is what the chattering class intend to do, multiracial/multicultural societies simply break down.
This conclusion cannot even be contemplated by academics because like the "argument from cooking" their culture cannot consider it. To do so would be to reveal the emperor, is indeed, naked!
CALL TO STOP MUSLIM IMMIGRANTS
We note the NSW
election campaign became 'entangled' in a debate over Muslim immigration after
the leader of the Christian Democratic Party Rev. Fred Nile called for an immediate
halt to Islamic immigrants.
Saturday 24th March is state election day in NSW. We will know by this time next week what the voters think.
THE LEAGUE IS BEING VINDICATED
multicultural/multiracial issue: We have no sense of smugness when we remind our
readers the League of Rights is being proved right on the stand it has taken over
the last twenty or so years.
At last one long-serving politician has had the guts to tackle the issue during an election campaign. Events such as the Cronulla riots point to the 'chickens now coming home to roost'! Just one question Rev. Nile: where have you been all these years?
HERE COMES THE BEAST! SLAY IT WITH 'NAZI' ARGUMENT?
Hawke's ID card has nothing on this! One of the few MPs making a token protest against the card is Bronwyn Bishop who said that the card failed the "Nazi test". The card, to be effective, is an ID card, whether it is called that or not.
We are becoming a nation of underlings, controlled by 'over-lords', but it is being carried out because people don't understand the systems, the mechanisms, working against them. They have no clear way forward in order to resist the takeover.
There are very few alive today who remember what a free (not in bondage to another) enterprise (a bold undertaking) society is like. Just like the older characters in "Animal Farm" - their memories are vague as to what happened beforehand.
Most Australians alive today have nothing to compare their current experiences with. They don't know what life was like 60 years ago. They don't know what a free society is.

THE HOUSING INDUSTRY AND GOVERNMENTS
On the 13th March 2GB radio personality Alan Jones spoke of the financially perilous situation in which mortgagees are now finding themselves. Stretching to their financial limit they borrowed heavily to purchase homes and are now finding it increasingly difficult to keep up their mortgage repayments.
will lose their homes:
"Household debt has doubled in the past five years. Frighteningly, 960 billion. 85 per cent of household debt is for housing. But our credit card debt at the end of last year was off the planet, 39 billion. There was talk yesterday that you need 145,000 dollars a year to afford an average home in Sydney. And the Opposition Treasury spokesman Wayne Swan presumably was wanting to blame the Howard Government."
Government charges are to blame - Jones:
"Well if you're buying it in Sydney, apart from the stamp duty and the fee for registering the mortgage, you'll pay a State Government infrastructure levy of many thousands, up to 20,000 and a local government infrastructure levy of up to 30,000 dollars. So basically on a 500,000 dollar home you're paying anything up to 150,000 dollars in State Government charges and taxes. The issue would be simple if all the buyer had to worry about was the interest rate.
"But what he knows, and no one is prepared to do anything about it, is that more than 25 per cent of the price he's paying is because State Governments are ripping off both the buyer and the developer. And that's something Mr Swan won't be telling you."
Mr. Jones, you are being very coy about what you are not telling your radio public!
'CREDIT' POWERS - MOST VOTERS SCARCELY KNOW ABOUT
And neither will Mr. Jones be telling his listeners WHY GOVERNMENTS OF ALL PERSUASIONS are bleeding us dry and bringing us more and more under their control! But he does give a clue by referring to MOODY'S INVESTORS SERVICE.
Hans-Peter Martin & Harald Schumann in "The Global Trap", Chapter: 'The Faustian
Pact' p.65, explained who and what Moody's Investors Service is:
WHAT IS THIS 'CREDIT' SYSTEM AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
find it hard to grasp how this system works. For them 'credit' is what they get
from their banking system when they borrow 'money'. They still believe bankers
lend only the money they have in their vaults, or safes.
people are waking up to the bankers' scams and are using their own real credit
through the alternate 'money' systems now flourishing in various parts of the
Mr. Alan Jones is being very coy about this matter. He is not giving his listeners the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!
question to Mr. Jones is:
THE CLIMATE CHANGE DEBATE
In the coming March edition of *The New Times Survey, we have included a paper by Professor Timothy Ball who brings up the issue of the "political and social Climate Change environment". The UK's Sunday Telegraph 11/3/07 registers the fact the issue is heating up.
Scientists threatened for 'climate
Timothy Ball, a former climatology professor at the University of Winnipeg in Canada, has received five deaths threats by email since raising concerns about the degree to which man was affecting climate change.
Governments have pumped billions into careers and institutes:
Change - new religion:
Nigel Calder, a former editor of New Scientist, said: "Governments are trying to achieve unanimity by stifling any scientist who disagrees. Einstein could not have got funding under the present system."

A MESSAGE FROM BLOODY ZIMBABWE
The media reports of the police
arrests and brutality towards the Zimbabwe leader of the opposition and his followers
is sketchy so that the reader doesn't get a clear picture of what is happening
in that troubled land.
"The build up to the holding of tomorrow's rally is horrendous with police/cio doing house to house searches for anyone known or believed to be MDC and threatening people about attending the rally tomorrow. MDC activists are removed from their homes and taken to Epworth satellite police station which has now become the "torture centre" for these brave people. The methods of torture are beating all over the body with baton sticks, falanga (beating the feet), pulling their teeth so they become loose, tying hands and feet together and hanging them up like that while they beat them. As I receive many of them at a medical facility in the city, I see it with my own eyes and hear their stories first hand.
photographic record of Human Rights abuses:
But no-one likes to recognise
it as such. "It is too strong a word" I was told by the EU representative for
Human Rights two years ago when I presented them with a photographic record of
five years of HR's abuses in Zimbabwe. And warned them that much worse was still
to come! If "that word" is used, then it means the UN and others are obliged to
We know, as does the rest of the world, that the UN only acts "too late, with too little". Ruwanda is the most horrific and recent example of this. The indications are here for us to see, the utterances by the misruling party make no bones about how they intend to deal with the opposition, and the armed forces (which includes the militia) have explicit instructions. I hope I am mistaken, but I do feel that bloodshed is not far off.
The people of Zimbabwe are to a great extent destitute, very angry and desperate - this means that they have reached the stage of being prepared to die for change. They have nothing left to lose but their lives. We are sitting on a time bomb."
NOT EXACTLY 'SKINT' AND IN 'THE LITTLE LEAGUE'
Successful Jews from across the globe have made it to the annual Forbes billionaires issue.
to the business magazine, there are now 946 billionaires in the world and among
them are Jewish people from the USA, Brazil, Spain, United Kingdom and Israel.

ENTREPRENEURS LAUNCH AIRLINE FOR FAILED ASYLUM-SEEKERS
number of deportees from Europe is now so vast that two entrepreneurs have launched
an airline exclusively for failed asylum-seekers. Asylum Airlines should be flying
in three months complete with padded rooms for troublemakers.
deportation lawyer Hermann Heller and Austrian aviation consultant Heinz Berger
said the new airline was in talks with several governments.
The flights will include guards, medical staff and a human rights group official - but there are no plans for in-flight entertainment or a frequent-flyer scheme. As yet?
