13 July 2007 Thought for the Week:
"Political leaders who are ready to obtain their country's entry into war by facilitating an enemy attack on it cannot be depended on to wage it in the national interest Admiral Kimmel and General Short were retired to conceal from the public the true source of responsibility for the disaster at Pearl Harbour Their operations had to conform to some higher plan, the nature of which they could not plainly perceive, but which was patently not that, of military victory in the national interest, taught to them from their earliest days as the sole reason for a soldier's being..."
- - Douglas Reed in "The Controversy of Zion," 1978.
THE HIGH COURT DOES IT AGAIN
by Ian Wilson LL.B.
This disdain for juries is symptom of a deeper philosophical problem: that unelected judges make law and effectively contribute to government, without the democratic checks and balances. It is in my opinion, a fundamental contradiction in our system of government, but the problem is seldom recognised.
THE ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL INSANITY OF REFUGEEISM
This raises the issue of the enormous cost the entire post-World War II refugee programme has had on Australia. Politically, refugees have been used as testing grounds for the next wave of a racial or ethnic type. Thus Vietnamese refugees ultimately led to large scale Asian immigration. From the post-World War II migration of the Mediterranean groups, we now have Melbourne as the largest Greek city outside of Greece and Australia as the no. 2 most "multicultural" nation on earth. What is wrong with this picture?
The UN 1951 Refugees Convention has been used by the ruling elites in a programme of racial and demographic engineering. As documented in this journal, newspapers now joyfully write in their editorial pages about the death of Anglo-Saxon Australia. They celebrate this demographic displacement of a people and the transformation of a nation as a good thing, whilst inconsistently lamenting in the next breath about the sad displacement of the Aborigines by "the British". Refugeeism, the cult of taking in people at the first sign of trouble, has to be abandoned in a world awash with "refugees".
At best, the massive numbers of refugees which we take in is but a token gesture to make puffed-up intellectuals feel less guilty on pay-day. If refugees are to continue to come to Australia, let them be fully paid for by the dollars of these same self-indulgent intellectuals from their own pay-cheques. How many do you think would then be admitted?
THE ATHEISM DELUSION : SCIENCE AND HUMAN ARROGANCE
Dawkins is an evolutionary biologist at Oxford University and Hitchens is a well-known British journalist. The covers of the two books are similar mixes of red and black and could be mistaken by the visually challenged for each other. The contents are remarkably similar as well - a belief that all that exists in the world is that which narrow science tells us exists. David Hodgson writing in the May 2007 edition of Quadrant is critical of Dawkins but accepts the modernist proposition that the Bible should be subjected to scientific scrutiny.
us leave aside the question which Eric Butler has well discussed of the essential
discontinuity of the Old and New Testaments, the Jewish and Christian world views.
More fundamental is the issue of why is science - and the natural sciences as
such - the sole criterion of truth?
Science and technology are the most asocial, amoral and undemocratic of activities. Scientists may threaten life itself, but are seldom punished for their evils. There clearly needs to be a book exposing science; may I suggest the title: "The Science Delusion". But who would publish that title?
TONAL LANGUAGES AND RACIAL DEVELOPMENT
Tonal languages, like Chinese, and unlike English, convey the meaning of words by changes in pitch. It was found that people possessing old versions of two brain genes, ASPM and Microcephalin are more likely to speak tonal languages. Most sub-Sahan African languages are also tonal.
Ladd and Didiu conclude that the first languages were also tonal. Although they deny the existence of "genes for the Chinese", a case can be made for this. Further, a case can be made for the later evolutionary emergence of Europeans, based on the relative lack of older versions of these brain development genes. This is yet another example of the biological reality of race and racial differences.
DID THE IRISH REALLY SAVE CIVILISATION?
In "How the Irish Saved Civilisation" (1995) Cahill argues that Ireland maintained European civilisation during the dark ages after the fall of Rome. Irish monks and scribes kept alive Christian manuscripts. This is all true, but I come away from Cahill's book with the impression that he thinks that without these acts, Christianity would have perished in Britain and Europe.
The real picture revealed in Arthur
Bryant's "Set in a Silver Sea" is more complex and sees the Christian gospel taking
root in Britain in the first century and during the coming of the Angles and Saxons,
Celtic Christianity developed in Wales and Cornwall.
LITIGATION IS THE ANSWER?

sounds like a sensible exercising of a person's right to free speech to me. Fortunately,

his prison term, George Bush commuted his 2 ½ year prison sentence.
move came: "I respect the jury's verdict," Bush said in a written statement.
"But I have concluded that the prison sentence given to Mr. Libby is excessive.
Therefore, I am commuting the portion of Mr. Libby's sentence that required him
to spend 30 months in prison."
Ah! Yes, Mr. Fitzgerald. But like the little piggies in George Orwell's "Animal Farm" little piggies are more equal than the mere proletariat.
PRINCE WILLIAM AS GOVERNOR-GENERAL?
control would be needed
Every young person I spoke to or heard on Friday approved the appointment, and many were excited about the prospect. Of course it was not going to happen even if a prime minister recommended it. The palace would no doubt insist that it be bipartisan, and that there be some guarantee that the appalling behaviour of our politicians in 1975 and subsequently in blaming the Governor-General and the system for their own behaviour in bringing our country to the brink.
Unbelievably, the principal beneficiary, Malcolm Fraser, later joined in, and converted to republicanism, thus abjuring his support for the Crown and, incidentally, for Australians for Constitutional Monarchy where he is recorded as a supporter. He claimed the dismissal would not happen under the 1999 politician's republic, which was too true. Gough Whitlam would have sacked the President first. But he still would not have had supply, unless Mr. Whitlam had proceeded with the proposal to ignore the Senate, which would have been a dangerous revolutionary act.

He will be remembered as the
author of the failed Mate for Head of State campaign.
on the same day, Sunday, 1 July,2007 I sent the following email to: firstname.lastname@example.org:
This failing was amply demonstrated recently when the cabinet papers of the Fraser government were released. In "Among the Barbarians: the Dividing of Australia", (Random House, 1998) Paul Sheehan argued, convincingly, that during the Hawke and Keating governments, the Labor Party had at times used the immigration selection process to provide electoral fodder for Labor. Mr Howard's republican predecessor, Paul Keating, still refuses to explain his role in clearing the path for the then to be deported Sheik Taj el-Din al Hilaly to stay here and become a citizen
this year Parliament has once again made it even easier to become an Australian
citizen. And if citizenship is a technical barrier to vice-regal appointment,
the Danes have a solution. Immediately before Princess Mary married Crown Prince
Christian, she was made a Danish citizen - by Act of Parliament
media also reported the bon mots of Mr Kevin Rudd, the Leader, who, let
us recall, the Leader of Her Majesty's Australian Opposition. (That serves to
remind him and all politicians that they are under the Crown, as trustee for the
people, and that they are not our masters.) Mr. Rudd reacted to the suggestion
in jest, saying: "I think it would be party, party, party out at Yarralumla, wouldn't
In any event I think most Australians will be disappointed by the way in which both political leaders reacted to the ramblings of a socialite journalist in a book she is determined to launch into the best seller lists. The standing of the politicians was however saved by the much attacked Health Minister, Tony Abbott, whom News Limited reported as saying: "I think it's great that Prince William wants to be involved with Australia, I think that the monarchy has been very important to this country. I think it's very good that we've got a connection with the Crown and I'm pleased that Prince William seems to take the Australian connection seriously."
