24 August 2007 Thought for the Week:
will reject the suggestion that they hold to the same ideology as the socialists.
But the ideological capitalist has the same regard for the individual as a communist.
In the eyes of both the individual is an economic unit. Communist dialectics teaches
the inevitability of the centralised State. Widespread private property must be
ruthlessly banned because it will be a hindrance to the collectivist State.
- - "Capitalists and Socialists United for Global Governance," New Zealand On Target, July-August 2001.
IN PRAISE OF PROFESSOR JAMES ALLAN
Ian Wilson LL.B:
Europe, he laments, has fallen into the attitude that the point of life is to get wealthier and many secular-minded people feel that there is nothing worth dying for because this life is it. But the survival of civilisation depends upon some people valuing civilisation enough to make the supreme sacrifice.
THE GLOBAL ASSAULT ON FREEDOM OF SPEECH
In Germany, chemist Germar Rudolf has been
gaoled for 30 months and fined US$27,770 for questioning the Holocaust. The court
ordered all copies of his book "Lectures on the Holocaust" confiscated and burned.
"Lecture on the Holocaust" is available online at
www.ihr.org so the German government needlessly added to global warming - naughty!
Fitzgerald summed it up well in saying:

THE FUNDAMENTAL IMPORTANCE OF THE INDIVIDUAL PERSON
The importance of freedom for the individual person stems from Christian teaching on the absolutely fundamental importance of man's eternal soul. Elizabeth Holter could write in her booklet, "The ABC of Social Credit": "Social Credit is interested in economic security for the very purpose of establishing individual freedom in order that man may develop according to his own initiative and capacity . Man is at last freed to devote himself to those intellectual, emotional and creative pursuits which alone can make life something more than mere vegetation. The expression of individuality is essential to the happiness of man."
Levesque O.P. in the 1936 booklet "Social Credit and Catholicism" quotes C.H.
Douglas on this matter:
IN PRAISE OF IDLENESS
is a disease that kills millions of people a year in the Western world. It is
also unnecessary given technological advances which should have served to free
man from the beastly burden of work. Major Douglas and Eric Butler recognised
this, but it was Jesus Christ in the Sermon on the Mount who gave the most moving
refutation of the cult of over-work:
The frantic pace of modern work is inconsistent with the deeply spiritual life which requires quietness, stillness and peace of mind - all lacking from modern manic capitalism.
THE WORLD WILL NOT END IN 2012 : IT HAS ALREADY ENDED
Thomas Hamer-Dixon works on environmental themes in "The Upside of Down : Catastrophe, Creativity and the Renewal of Civilisation". A very eclectic book is Lawrence E. Joseph's "Apocalypse 2012". That is the date that the ancient Mayan calendar ends. Joseph looks at both mystical and scientific sources predicting an end of civilisation.
In another sense Civilisation
has ended already. Our world is an inverted world like in the movie "Planet of
the Apes," where the 'Apes' really do rule us. Our institutions and culture has
been invaded just as effectively.
THE WORLD-WIDE WICKED WEB
The world-wide web has obvious merits for the freedom movement. However beyond our standard uses is the new web, Web 2.0 of YouTube, My Space and so on. Silicon Valley guru Andrew Keen is concerned about the social effects of these developments and has written a book entitled "The Cult of the Amateur : How Today's Internet is Killing Our Culture and Assaulting Our Economy," (Nicholas Brealey Publishing). His argument is that blog sites are undermining traditional newspapers and are often inaccurate. He criticises Wikipedia because it is done by unknown amateurs.
I cannot agree with Keen. Of course many, many blog sites are useless - but so are received newspapers! Wikipedia was recently tested for accuracy and was found to be reasonably reliable. It is not Web 2.0 which is killing our culture, but the acts of a class of traitorous financial/intellectual elites, hell bent on our destruction. The internet is a valid weapon of defence.
ESTONIA'S COMMEMORATION OF ITS PRE-WW II PAST
According to the semi-official Russian Federal News Agency, Estonia's commemoration of its pro-German World War II past, including the re-enactment of a Nazi victory, has outraged the Russian Jewish community.
Two weeks ago, veterans of the Waffen SS 20th Estonian Division celebrated the anniversary of the first clashes between Estonian pro-German troops and the Soviet Army in 1941. And then on the following Monday, young Estonian nationalists began a week of commemoration by re-enacting the 1941 Erna Campaign, when a diversionary platoon of 42 Estonian paramilitary volunteers trounced the Soviet Red Army. According to the Russian Federal News Agency, the re-enactment attracted participation from 10 countries, including the United States, Finland and Germany.
Recalling its pro-German World War II past has been an annual tradition for Estonia since the republic seceded from the Soviet Union in 1991. During the commemoration, in the small Estonian town of Sinimiae, elderly veterans from Estonia, Norway and Austria travelled three hours by charter bus from Tallinn, the Estonian capital. They were accompanied by dozens of young followers dressed in T-shirts with what the Jew press described as "Nazi symbols," (but of course were not) along with Estonian officials, including Parliament member Trivimi Velliste and Minister of Defense Jak Aaviksoo.
Speaking before the
gathering, Aaviksoo reportedly called the former SS commandos "fighters for independence"
and Velliste described the Soviet soldiers as "terrorists". Estonia has clashed
previously with Moscow over what Russia has called Estonia's "glorification" of
its Nazi past. In January, 150 people were wounded and more than 1,000 detained
in violent street protests in Tallinn after a bronze statue commemorating a World
War II Soviet soldier was moved from a downtown square to a less prestigious location
outside the city's centre.
WALL-TO-WALL REPUBLICAN GOVERNMENTS?
Professor David Flint of Australians for Constitutional Monarchy has issued an important warning to Australian voters. A vote for Rudd puts the Commonwealth Constitution in grave danger.
He writes in his Opinion
In this context, Kevin Rudd's recent intervention in support of a republic was as unexpected as it was unwise. He clearly has not done his homework on the question. How else can would this conservative Labor politician observe that he is "relatively relaxed" about the prospect of a republic in which the president is chosen by the electorate? No other conservative politician of any standing is. This statement was reckless.
Equally unprofessional is the Labor Party's
continued outsourcing of the detail of this issue to the declining republican
movement. This is even more curious when it is remembered the movement is headed
by a Liberal candidate in the coming election.
Our seven parliaments acting together could, on the very best legal advice available,
not only bring in any sort of republic without a referendum, it could also abolish
the Senate, turn the states into regions, extend the terms of the politicians
to five or seven years or more, subvert the judiciary and gag the media.
by raising the prospect of change to some sort of republic, Mr Rudd has handed
control of the introduction of this issue to his opponents. Once it is on the
agenda, the electorate may begin to wonder whether any party should have
this power. They may ask whether the temptation to do something will be too strong?
BEATTIE, QUEENSLAND CONSTITUTION & LOCAL GOVERNMENT
Ballot Box voting at elections is restricted to choosing between two or more candidates, not about a single or even two issues, only a proposed agenda. Recent State and Federal elections have become arguments about whether the voter will get more of the same, or just the same, with no Premier or Prime Minister being an improvement on his predecessor. Each new Leader gets worse in terms of leading us where we do not want to go. Every Poll taken along these lines confirms this.
Fighting or debating issues along the old Party lines no longer has any meaning. Both main parties now select candidates, where it is possible, on the grounds of whether they support a Republic or not. If they affirm this position, they will get nomination in the Party of their Choice. This is not surprising as all Parties are financed by the Corporate-Republican Multi-millionaires, not by membership subscription.
Selection of candidates at Grass Roots level
now only occurs where an incumbent member has to be removed by a displacement
ballot, to make way for a "chosen" candidate. (a la Turnbull) Australia's destiny
no longer rests with one "Party" or the other. It is now clearly a matter of voting
for Republicans or non-republicans at the Ballot Box. We are still faced with
defectors after their election where they cannot win on their true label.
For all these reasons and more, I feel at the next election we should forget about Party labels and turn our attention to republican labels, for that is what the ultimate outcome will be all about. Fighting on the wrong front could be an absolute disaster to the enjoyment of the republicans, whose objective is the concentration of Power in fewer and fewer hands, along Corporate Government lines, not democratic lines.
The media have gone very lightly on
what Beattie has achieved with this legislation. Most comment is wordy and shallow,
so he is going to get away with it unless there is still some life left in Local
COALITION CLIMATE SCEPTICS
by Don Auchterlonie
It is heartily recommended that supporters write and congratulate the MPs for their independent stance. Just write care of Parliament House, Canberra.
TURNBULL INTRODUCES WATER BILL INTO PARLIAMENT
Turnbull has introduced the Bill for the Water Act 2007 into the House of Representatives.
According to his own media release:
In effect, he is telling Australians that no longer will governments be responsible for our river systems, waterways and the infrastructure servicing us all. Governments will now hand over to 'private concerns' the power to "make every drop count through investments in better water infrastructure".
Water is an essential need for all of life and should never be centralised in the few hands of corrupt power-hungry men.
POINTS TO PONDER: PORTIONS FROM JEREMY LEE'S PRAYER LETTER
The following material is taken from Jeremy Lee's Prayer Letter. Those who would like to receive the Letter should write requesting it to: Jeremy Lee, P.O. Box 1234, Toowoomba 4350. Don't forget to include a little something to help cover costs of postage, etc.
writes: "C.H. Douglas. In his 1922 classic "Social Credit", wrote of a time when
every aspect of evil in the world appeared to be in the ascendancy. Surely that
time is now.
In Britain Tony Blair, widely despised, has stepped into a new post as envoy for the Superpowers to the Middle East at a cost of 3 million pounds annually. The Palestinians have already rejected him. Before leaving the prime-ministership, Blair cynically broke his pledge that the British would be allowed a referendum on Europe.
The Weekly Telegraph (UK) 13 June 2007 reported front-page that, before leaving office Mr. Blair had made commitments to the European Union on Britain's behalf which his successor, Gordon Brown, would find it virtually impossible to avoid, dispensing with the need for a referendum of the British people on a new European Constitution. Needless to say, this would be the end of British sovereignty and the Crown. There is a question as to whether the Queen is aware of this or has simply been sidelined.
The Middle East
and Financial Convulsions:
In Australia we
should remember that governments are voted out - not in. The present disgust with
the Howard government does not mean enthusiasm for Rudd. But people want a change!
Howard and Costello have deceived the electorate too many times.
hypocrisy is staggering.
