2 November 2007 Thought for the Week:
If it is possible
for any truth to emerge from this mad election campaign, surely it is the spiritual
generosity of the Australian elector. All of which was summed up in the words
of the person being interviewed by an ABC reporter:- "Half the lies they
are telling are untrue".
REDUCE IMMIGRATION - NARACOORTE'S MAYOR SPEAKS OUT
Mayor of Naracoorte South Australia, Mr. Ken Grundy, gives a strong lead on the

LET THE BACKLASH BEGIN
wonder if the aspiring politicians in Australia are paying attention to what recently
happened in Switzerland? It is one thing to impose unpopular policies on the people
- it is another thing to make them work in the long-term.
Statistics Office estimated that the party had won 29 percent of the vote in national
parliamentary elections Sunday, 22nd October. That topped the 1919 performance
of 28 percent achieved by the pro-business Radical Democrats. The Social Democrats,
the second- largest party, dropped to 19.5 percent from 23.3 percent.
WIDE VOTER SUPPORT FOR INITIATIVE ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION
The rightwing Swiss People's Party says it has collected over 170,000 signatures in three months for its initiative to expel foreign criminals. The proposal has caused controversy at home and abroad in particular for its accompanying "black sheep" poster campaign, which has been accused of racism, depicting three white sheep kicking a black sheep out of the country.
The initiative calls for any foreigner
condemned of murder, rape, robbery, drug trafficking, burglary, human trafficking
or social security abuse to have their residence permit taken away.
WEARY DUNLOP : WHERE HAS REAL MANHOOD GONE?
by James Reed
One way in which men in the camps attempted to restore moral order, and keep men above the animal level was through the instalment of a camp education system which taught the best of the western canons of leading, including the ancient Greek and Roman past and the lessons from great literature such as the Iliad and the Odyssey by Homer. Myth and legend gave a meaning and point to human hardship and aided in the capacity of survival. If men have meaning then they can survive any hardship. Courage, Weary Dunlop concludes, "is the real foundation of life." (p.416)
The importance of mythopoeic thinking, of relating human strife and struggle back to the fundamental questions of human existence, is also well seen in the literature of J.R.R. Tolkien, Author of "The Lord of the Rings", "The Hobbitt" and other works. In a battle between good and evil, where there are no murky postmodern shades of grey, the values of courage, mercy, integrity, honour and love can be experienced in a pure form. These are the values of heroes; manly values, though of course women can well attain them.
Today, only 60 years or so from Weary Dunlop's world, it seems almost inconceivable that we are living in the same world as those who did brave deeds and wrote poetic myths. We inhabit something of an alien, invaded and occupied world, where people are encouraged to be less than human and to fall into the mud of techno-consumerist depravity and degeneracy. There should be a fear among those who can still think and feel that civilisation - the world represented by Tolkien, could ultimately be swallowed up in the Ring of Power - of high finance, blind mechanistic science and brutal technology - that now rules the world. As always, the resistance must be to counter raw power with thought, myth and poetry. We too must outlast the vast concentration camp of the new world order, in which we dwell.
the great Irish poet W.B. Yeats once said:

Footnote: Clifford Hugh Douglas in "The Realistic Position of The Church of England," in 1948 wrote: "The civilisation of Christianity was incompletely embodied in the culture of mediaeval Europe, and is exemplified in Magna Carta. Its essential characteristic is courage, allied to "love," cf "Perfect love casteth out fear" (a rather unsatisfactory translation). The knight of chivalry, the militant Christian ideal, watched his armour alone in the chapel through the night, and then went out to do battle alone for love against fear and oppression - a very complete allegory."
A HAKA FOR THE QUEEN OF NEW ZEALAND
On a lighter
note, from David Flint's Opinion Column:
team, including the entire tour party, were invited to meet Queen Elizabeth II,
as Queen of New Zealand, at the Palace on Tuesday, 16 October, 2007. In the New
Zealand Rugby League Press Release, the team manager Malcolm Boyle warmly welcomed
the event, saying: "This is a tremendous and rare honour, not just for us but
for the game itself. Being invited to meet the Queen has just lifted a hugely
significant event to yet another level."
As to the haka, New Zealand TV3 said that when people are this rowdy they are usually asked to leave. When news of the event spread, palace staff turned up to watch. It was, as it always is, a great success. After the team performed, The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh mingled among the footballers."
GLOBAL WARMING 'GUFF'
On the 2 Nov. 2006, The Stern Report on costs of 'global warming' appeared. Was the report an unbiased, impartial, comprehensive report? Hardly. It would seem the reader needs to be aware the Treasury Civil Servant Sir Nicholas Stern has links to the Fabian London School of Economics, the World Bank and the Ford Foundation.
In response to Stern's Report, Professor Paul
Reiter of the Pasteur Institute, Paris, wrote the following letter to the U.K.
When he was finally discredited,
the Soviet Nobel Laureate Nicolai Semyonov wrote:- "There is nothing more dangerous
than blind passion in science. Given support from someone in power, it can lead
to suppression of true science, and
.to inflict great injury on the country".
Popular knowledge of scientific issues is again awash with misinformation. Alarmists
use the language of science to manipulate public perceptions by judgmental warnings.
Scientists who challenge them are branded as a tiny minority of "sceptics".
ASIAN VALUES AND PLAGIARISM
by James Reed
has long been known that plagiarism is common among Asian overseas students. In
Asian institutions, plagiarism is very common. It is now common in Australian
institutions. (The Australian 5/9/07 p.44; 22/8/07 p.7)
The liberal idea of the university as a place for free speech and pursuing the argument where it may lead is dead, long dead. The idea of free thought, that precious flickering flame in an otherwise ocean of darkness, is kept alive now by organisations such as the League of Rights. The proof: week after week you read the ravings of James Reed, like him or loathe him!
ALIENS SWAMP AMERICA
by Brian Simpson
To cut to the chase, the official Census Bureau estimate of 8-12 million illegal aliens is certainly wrong. The number of illegal aliens is likely to be double, 16-24 million or more. Some writers put the figure at 38 million. And the average illegal immigrant receives US$8-12 in public services for every US$1 paid in taxes.
In California this constitutes a drain of about 20 per cent of the State budget. For those of you who think that I/we talk too much about immigration, consider the ramifications of these grim statistics as the number of illegals continues to grow. Economic collapse is ensured by this alone.
IT'S ENOUGH TO MAKE ONE A SOCIAL CREDITER!
by James Reed
What is particularly wrong about Capitalism is that, in the words of an article on CEO payouts "There are excessive rewards for mediocrity." (P. Weekes, "Bosses Make More Dollars Than Sense," The Sunday Age 8/7/07). Consider: the head of Coles will be likely to walk away with a $50 million package even though Coles lost market share to its rival Woolworths.
The article gives a long list of Australian executives who failed, but who walked away with millions. Excessive CEO salaries are a corrupting aspect of global capitalism - and its no wonder that the rich like the idea of "globalism".
But for us, we have a duty to keep the ship of civilisation and humanity afloat and we seek in social credit and its philosophy a medicine for the sciatica of corporate greed with its ultimate philosophy of slash and burn.
A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND CONSPIRACIESby Betty Luks
Featured on page 1 of The Australian (11/10/07) is a revealing photograph. The caption reads: "Blessing: Labor's George Newhouse (left) and Wayne Swan watch as Malcolm Turnbull is blessed by the Chief Rabbi of Israel, Rabbi Yona Metzger.
The Rabbi is touching Turnbull's head which is presumably the "blessing". When I first saw the photograph, without reading the caption, I thought the Rabbi was patting him on the head in an affectionate fashion or in a light-hearted manner, as one would pat, say a pet.
Having been blessed the millionaire Environment Minister has told the gay and lesbian voters in his electorate that he will fight to end discrimination against them! (The Australian 12/10/07) Presumably this means supporting same-sex marriages. But wait - what does the Chief Rabbi think of this?
FORCED TO USE BOTTLED WATER TO CLEAN TIOLETS?
Len the Cleaner:
Australia is only the driest continent on earth if one divides water volume by surface area. But Australia has masses of water: the Clarence River Catchment puts out ten Sydney harbours to sea each year and the Ord River in Western Australia wastes 4 billion litres a day. Pipelines could easily make Adelaide into a tropical garden.
I was a lad I once read a comic which came to mind when I read the 'Tiser
headline. Earth people had been enslaved by an alien race who forced the earthlings
to pay for water at $1 a bottle. In the days of Spiderman, Thor and the Fantastic
Four, this story struck me as too fantastic to contemplate at the time. But now
- now it is a reality - as people buy bottled water because tap water is so foul.
MULTICULTURAL MEDIA MANIPULATION
from Len the Cleaner (again):
is biased journalism at its worse:
NAME 'CONAGRA' - BRINGS BACK MEMORIES
ConAgra issued a consumer alert Tuesday and asked stores nationwide to stop selling the poultry pot pies, but the company stopped short of a recall until Thursday evening. ConAgra spokeswoman Stephanie Childs said the decision to recall the pies wasn't based on new information, but an abundance of caution. "We want to make sure there's no confusion with consumers, that these pot pies shouldn't be eaten," Childs said."
Well now, the reader might say this sort of recall happens from time to time where food is concerned, so what is so newsworthy about this particular article - and he would be right. But the news took me back to the experiences of an American by the name of Rudy 'Butch' Stanko in his battle with the cartels that operate in the meat industry in America. He wrote of those experiences in a book titled "The Score". Writer and author Eustace Mullins permitted Stanko to include the following remarks to appear on the back of the book published in 1986:
Stanko and his companies were a rising power in the U.S. Manufactured (ground)
meat business. Their turnover was running at a rate of $200 million per annum.
Debts were minimal. They supplied 45% of U.S. Army ground beef and were the dominant
supplier for the school lunch programme. Their profitability was amongst the highest
in the business.
In three days Rudy Stanko's business was destroyed. Why? Because he had underestimated the cartel which controls the U.S. meat industry. He had only seen them as competitors, and as such he could handle them. They were more. They were part of a "family" of cartels operating in many industries, in the media, in banking, and reaching into Government itself, which protects and promotes its interests at every level "
In 1986 ordinary people would have treated such claims with much scepticism and hardly to be believed. In 2007 the link between banking, big business and big government is now out in the open for all to see. For those interested to read of his experiences, try the internet for a second-hand copy of "The Score" by Rudy 'Butch' Stanko.
A Minnesota couple is suing ConAgra Foods Inc. for selling the pot pies they believe made their young daughter ill with salmonella. The federal suit, filed in U.S. District Court in St. Paul, seeks damages of more than $75,000 and reimbursement for medical costs.
LETTER TO THE PRESS
To the Editor of The Australian, 19th October 2007
is regrettable to find yet another Jewish spokesman, this time Dore Gold, fulminating
against 'denial of the Holocaust' ('Threats the First Step to Genocide', 19/10).
What he is really opposing is not denial but critical appraisal; and it is enormous
effrontery to deny the right of President Ahmadinejad or any one else to approach
a matter of history in that spirit.
