February 2007 Thought for the Week:
"In a series of books
and articles, (Clifford Hugh) Douglas demonstrated that the Second World War was

a major feature of the long-term policy designed to create a World State.
organic development of an Empire of decentralised sovereign nations was a major
obstruction to any grandiose programmes for New World Orders, and became the target
of an international campaign of destruction
"Sovietism, under the
title of the New Deal, is being rapidly foisted on the American public. The fundamental
idea is the same as 'planning' and Communism: Everything run by big State Trusts
controlled by Finance. Production is made to fit the money system which alone
creates a set of circumstances conducive to getting the people to accept these
ideas. The financiers know that primary producers have an independent outlook
and have always found them the hardest to deal with. This was particularly so
in Russia. There should be no need for me to comment on the similar manner in
which the primary producers are being treated in this country

"The Enemy Within the Empire," August 1941, republished 1992.
ON PLANNING THE EARTH
Written by Geoffrey Dobbs in the 1940s "On Planning the Earth,"
gives an account of the first large-scale centralisation of power over people
and the whole landscape in which they lived (the Tennessee Valley) by the financial
and political use of environmental propaganda.
The Tennessee Valley Authority
(TVA) was at once the prototype; an example and a warning of the working out of
this power policy which is now being applied to the whole world. Referred to,
by the then president Roosevelt as "The New Deal" - so as not to alarm the American
people - it was and is elsewhere known as Socialism or Communism or Central Planning.
First Bash Them, then Blame Them, then
The sequence of events which has been followed ever since in
one form or another, is as follows: first create a public scandal by monetary
means. Then raise a great public outcry, blaming its victims as irresponsible
and in need of 'taking over'. Then take over, amid tremendous propaganda about
'democracy', conservation, the environment, etc., and perhaps carry out a few
useful practises, but on a petty scale compared to the expenditure on the real
purposes for which the whole project is undertaken. When this finally emerges
and causes a public outcry, the whole business can start again.
'conservative' Prime Minister of this country has announced there is an urgent
need for the Commonwealth to take over the management of Australia's Murray-Darling
river system and its tributaries from the States' control. In other words centralise
control of Australia's major waterways in a Canberra bureaucracy.
to this man, the problem is so huge and the need so urgent, large-scale planning
is essential and only the Centralist Government in Canberra can do anything to
resolve the matter.
History informs those
who have eyes to see:
While the sequence of events might appear novel
to us because of our short-term memories, the pattern can be recognised if one
knows what to look for - it has happened again and again over the centuries.
If you wanted to take over a country - or even the world - ask yourself how you
would do it.
You could do it by physical force, i.e., militarily, but even
then you would need financial backing to equip and feed your armies - and the
help of 'friends' along the way.
Or you could gain control of the systems
and institutions by which the people are governed, e.g., the political and financial
systems. A people who live within a 'money' economy are governed (controlled),
even from a distance, every day of their lives by the policies of the money power.
Most people have a Bible in their homes, even
if they open them up only occasionally. Dust yours off and go to Genesis 48 and
take particular note of how Joseph, the Pharaoh's 'prime minister' (known in those
days as a 'despot's tool') through control of the financial system, cornered the
grain market buying up all surpluses and storing them away in the times of plenty.
Come the years of 'famine' the people first used up what monies they had to
purchase enough to ward off starvation, then when their money ran out, sold their
cattle, etc., to Joseph in return for enough to live on, finally selling their
lands (now 'owned' by the State) and themselves (now slaves of the State).
Joseph, through a corrupt ruler and financial system communised Egypt.
question to those Christian leaders who read this journal:
How does Joseph's
policy of Communising the State line up with Jesus' teaching?
the Soviets were in a hurry for control of the land and in the Ukraine confiscated
the peasant farmers' harvest and just let them starve to death - in the millions
- then took over.
If Australians let John Howard's party and money-lender
lords get away with this 'water grab', and in the future find their right to an
absolutely basic essential for life, has been taken over by some faceless Financial-Corporation,
they have only themselves to blame.
about the beleaguered Australian farmers now? Are they seen as being too indebted
and need to be bankrupted and forced off their lands as the Agribus-Combines are
financed to open up the north to agriculture?
TELL IT HOW IT IS
Australian farmers of all persuasions have just been through
an agonisingly dry year. Vast regions of rural Australia had already been locked
into years of devastating drought, creating an even more desperate future outlook
for them. Countless numbers of primary producers are trying to come to terms with
just how to find enough carry-on finance.
There are not many options available,
just go back to the bank. Pray that your debts can be reconstructed and get some
more finance to carry on.
the prospects of the short term Plan A of immediate and substantial increase of
overdrafts and loans is losing its flavour. Because of the high Australian dollar,
linked with vanishing profits as costs of production are overtaking returns on
all sorts of primary production, the thought of giving up life on the land could
be very tempting.
The day is coming, accountants
are saying, and now lawyers who deal with such matters are sensing also, a big
shift in what were once rock-solid beliefs of farmers, such as farmers maintaining
the belief that whatever sacrifices it took, the farm must be kept.
line is starting to look awful for grain growers; very high input costs coupled
with large finance investments in machinery are taking toll. The impact of very
competitive prices on imports of food from cheap labour countries and our own
export prices struggling against subsidised production in the world's major exporting
regions. None of this is helpful.
are we at?
Public utterances by senior Agri-business bankers are still
painting a falsely hopeful expectation that farmers have managed to keep up with
their loan repayments during the drought (The Australian 23/1/07 p.24)
and all will be well - for now.
No one points
out that Australian taxation is oppressive and lacks adequate or significant incentives
or concessions for Australia's primary producers. No one points out that the Australian
dollar is the plaything of the International smart-money-men forever pouring money
in or pulling money out to the tune of billions of dollars daily, changing the
dollar's value by the hour. This is a preposterous situation that a staid and
slow moving industry like land is subjected to and cannot compete with.
present a one cent increase in the US dollar costs Australian wheat growers 2-3
dollars a tonne as it does with all other exports by scale. Crisis point - we
need a big change in our thinking: Australian agriculture has reached a crisis
point, either we farm under a new farmers' financial arrangement within the banking
structure, or present farmers 'go over the cliff' - the family farm as we know
it will be finished.
It is felt far and wide
that nobody really cares about rural Australia and many have had enough. Labour
shortages are also a major problem as young people are drawn to other lifestyles
with better conditions.
Is there an answer and can we implement it? First, we
have to determine who are our federal politicians governing for? The present financial
system induces continuous rises in prices and wages accordingly. We are not going
to change that (in the foreseeable future
ed). The talk about bananas effecting
inflation is just too much.
farmers urgently need is a new department in all financial institutions for farmers
to access as the Rural Development Bank concept is re-established. Only conditional
approval would apply as primary producers access these finances to manage their
future and stabilise their farms and lives.
people could be encouraged to become primary producers with suitable long-term
loans with fixed interest rates. The Federal government could allow appropriate
concessions within the banking sector.
this concept it would be best if taxation offsets were applied by the banking
institutions themselves - to manage a whole new era in Australian agriculture.
IS THIS THE STRAW
TO BREAK OUR BACKS?
Who Owns The Water?
Asks local councillor Bevan O'Regan:
Well it's finally out in the open.
A company in Victoria calling themselves Urban Rainwater Systems have written
to the Australian Local Government asking them who owns the water that falls on
your property; the property owner or the Government.
South Australia, Western
Australia and Tasmania have already said that the water that falls on your roof
belongs to the State.
This means that the
laughable rain tax that we joked about is now a reality in those three states.
This time Local Government has to waken from its sleep and tell the newly formed
Water Exchange that it cannot tax water owned by property owners and while they
are at it, tell them that legally they can't separate water from the land if that
land is privately owned.
If I weren't reading
this from messages I receive as a councillor, I would think it's all a bad dream.
Unfortunately it's not a dream and we have documents signed by the Prime Minister
and all State leaders agreeing to this theft of water from your freehold land.
is a criminal offence and I would like to see the Shires Association instigate
court action immediately.

PHYSICS OF IGNORANCE
An article by Peter Ridd, a senior lecturer in physics at James
Cook University ("Physics Will Add Up Only with Maths," The Australian 19/7/06
p.32) is an important contribution to the debate on outcomes-based education.
This is essentially a "syllabus without content".
reports that the "latest physics syllabus in Queensland dispenses with the facts
The teachers are free to teach anything they like to whatever depth
they wish. There is also no guidance on the level of mathematics to be used in
the physics course. Some teachers will elect to remove the maths entirely because
some of the students may be frightened by a few equations."
"In Queensland, not only do we have a physics syllabus devoid
of physics, we have a Year 10 Maths syllabus devoid of a single equation." Incredible,
Having read all of these reports I am firmly of the belief that outcomes-based
education was, and still is, a conspiracy by the Left elites to dumb down the
hated West and destroy it from within. What else could one infer from a physics
course without physics and a maths course without maths?
education-speak and equity statements that fill the syllabus documents really
give the game away. In the end radical egalitarians will only be happy when we
are all equally at the bottom, and civilised order peels away to the rule of the
barbarian and tribal War Lord.
MUM, I CAN COUNT THE COMMAS
by James Reed
Here is another argument for home schooling: mathematics students in Victorian
High Schools are being asked to count the number of punctuation marks used in
newspaper articles as part of the Victorian curriculum. This is supposed to introduce
students to statistics.
Now if this was for
kindergarten or reception children it would be fine, but not high school - the
dumbing down continues. The aim of education is to produce a population quite
incapable of thinking, a dumb population that can consume but which can never
be a threat to the black spiders who rule us.
THERE'S MORE: DECONSTRUCTING ENGLISH
Kevin Donnelly, a member of the advisory group overseeing the inquiry
into State and Territory Year 12 subjects, has done a great service in exposing
the ingrained Left-wing bias present in many, if not all, high school subjects.
English as well, has fallen victim to the political correctness bug, he has recently
argued (The Weekend Australian 21-22/10/06 p.27).
example, see if you can make any sense out of this outpouring from the Board of
Studies for English in NSW:
"[Teachers should adopt a] critical-postmodernist
This involves drawing on and seeking to integrate into a dynamic, strategic
synthesis the currently evolving and ever mutating discourses of critical pedagogy,
cultural studies and postmodernism, within which notions of popular culture, textuality,
rhetoric and the politics and pleasures of representation become the primary focus
of attention in both 'creative' and 'critical' terms.]"
anybody understands this please let me know! I am glad that my teaching career
has long ended. I couldn't face myself having to destroy young minds with this
nonsense each day.
It will be a long hard battle to force the Left out of
the education system. But by the time they "die off" from old age, the damage
will be long done.
reading for parents and concerned grandparents:
years ago, concerned schoolteacher Jean M. Wallis of Kaniva, Victoria, warned
parents of "The Disaster Road," taken by the 'progressives' firmly entrenched
within the education system.
In her book she exposed the deliberate and sustained
assault on the traditional values-system that was once at the core of Australian
education. "The Disaster Road," by Jean M. Wallis: Price: $17.00 includes postage
later John Taylor Catto in "Dumbing Us Down," sums up what were the intended
results from such an approach to education.
"The system perfected at places
like the University of Chicago, Columbia Teachers College, Carnegie-Mellon and
Harvard" were set up to ensure a docile, malleable workforce to meet the growing
changing demands of corporate capitalism
the Combine needs dumb adults and so
ensures the supply

MUCH TOLERANCE OF THE INTOLERABLE
In a revealing article "Beach Violence Not a Symptom of Rampant Racism"
(The Australian 11/12/06 p.8) Tom Switzer, opinion editor of The Australian
rejected the idea that the Cronulla riots of last year show that Australia is
a racist nation.
The unstated premise of this argument in the media debate
is that only the Anglos are, or can be racist, never the ethnic. Whatever the
ethnic does, no reaction in kind is ever understandable as long as Anglos do it.
Immigration numbers doubled during Howard's
decade in power:
Switzer rejects the
"Australia is racist" argument, not by exposing its own "racist" presuppositions
but by saying this:
"Take our successful non-discriminatory immigration
policy that replaced the White Australia Policy in Harold Holt's era. About one-fifth
of Australians come from families where English is not the native language and
who have lived here for only one or two generations. A quarter of the population
was born overseas. Howard is often accused of embracing Hansonism, yet our immigration
policy has not only remained non-discriminatory, but immigration has doubled during
his decade in power."
Revealing material indeed.
Anglo Saxons have been tolerant to the point of ethnic and racial oblivion. Would
the countries of the many ethnic groups who now constitute the new Australian
State have so passively accepted this dilution and ultimate replacement?
course our immigration policy has been racially discriminatory: the White
Australia Policy has now been effectively replaced with the Non-White Australia
Howard did embrace "smoke screen" Hansonism, taking a seemingly tough
stance on illegals (which when examined is also illusory) whilst increasing Asian
immigration to record levels. It should be a worry to all actionists that the
Australian public has swallowed this deceptive bait.
NATIVE TITLE BACK ON THE ATTACK
Ian Wilson LL.B:
It looks like 2007 will be a big year for the new world order
and globalists, just as 2005 was. Native Title serves an important agenda of de-legitimising
the claim to the nation that the British Australians who settled this land and
created "Australia" have.
Native Title is
a formal legal expression of the "invasion" ideology of academics such as Henry
Reynolds: the 1992 Mabo judgement is a clear expression of this.
in September 2006, the Federal Court gave native title rights to an aboriginal
group over Perth! At the time I wrote about this flawed judgement and fortunately
the W.A. and Federal governments are appealing that decision.
Githabul have just secured the largest native title deal in the east of Australia:
11 state forests and eight national parks. That is over 6,000 square kms of land.
The agreement is to be signed at a ceremony at Toonumbar on 28th February, a mere
three weeks before the NSW elections.

SELF-SUSTAINING REALITY OF GREED

example, has 146,000 millionaires with their average wealth being $3.96 million.
Apparently the number of Australian millionaires is growing faster than anywhere
else on this troubled planet. The "rich airhead" syndrome is that if one is rich
it is easy to believe that you deserve to be richer. Pursuing money for the sake
of pure accumulation has become more important than knowledge, love and moral
In fact in the post-modern free market world, there is no moral value
beyond the absolutes given by the market, of greed and accumulation.

involve choosing addictive substances over human values, and philosophically,
in terms of human harm, there is little difference between them. The reality of
the drug world and the world of money, is self-sustaining greed.
MORE PROOF OF ANCIENT EUROPEAN BRILLIANCE
One important part of our programme for recovery as a people
is the recovery of our racial past. Politically correct history as it is written
has it that the North West European people were primitive people and that major
scientific and technological discoveries were made in Asia and the Middle East.
An older view, dating from before the Second
World War, had it that the Aryan peoples of Europe were the creators of civilisations
and took advanced culture to far off places such as India and China. As this view
has the potential to give historical pride to our race, those who have the agenda
to destroy our kind, and who now run the Establishment, suppress or do not promote
any data which may support Nordic racial pride.
Australian magazine Renewal (December 2006) reports that the world's earliest
calculator, the "Antikythera Mechanism," was originally found in 1901 off the
coast of Greece. Not only could the calculator add, multiply, divide and subtract
but it also has gearings to predict the motions of the planets. Made of brass
in the second century BCE, the devise resembles a windup clock.
lenses found at Visby Scandinavia, made over 1,200 years ago were superior to
those made in Holland 500 years later.
carvings found at Kostenski, close to the River Don in Southern Russia are about
45,000 years old and constitute the earliest example of human figurative art.
Received science says that humans only settled Europe about 40,000 years ago,
but this idea is now being challenged.
Europe, contrary to received opinion, was not an intellectual backwater, but rather
an intellectual leader.
PROBLEM WITH HUMAN RIGHTS
by Ian Wilson LL.B:
On 1 January 2007 Victoria's Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities
Act came into force. There is a fundamental problem with these sorts of Acts,
as Benjamin Jellis has observed:
(The Australian 4/1/07 p.8) "Arguments
about rights are inherently subjective and place great discretion in the hands
of the courts. This is, of course, a boon for lawyers, but disenfranchises those
who have neither the time nor the money to fight over the consistent interpretation
Human Rights Acts put our most cherished
freedoms in the hands of lawyers - and I have seen enough of lawyers to be more
than a little concerned.
