On Target

25 January 2008 Thought for the Week:

Wealth list outlined: Such a (wealth) list, if it could ever be complied for even a single individual would never be strictly applicable to his life at any given moment and would tend to change from hour to hour… wealth only discloses itself in consumption, for consumable goods capable of being converted by consumption into wealth at one moment of the life of the individual are quite incapable of realising any wealth at another.

In other words, all questions of value are incapable of settlement because there is no possibility of fixing a standard of value and all we can say of anything is that at that particular moment it was presumably valued by an individual consumer because he consumed it. Notions of utility, likewise, arise from the confusion concerning the nature of wealth…

Wealth is, strictly speaking, not the source from which the needs are supplied but the supplying of the needs. In other words, a nation's wealth is what its citizens consume.

A THREAT TO THE NEW WORLD ORDER?

by Wallace Klinck, Canada:
The following letter, by Wallace Klinck was published by the Edmonton Senior magazine, January 2008 Issue, headed. "Social Credit poses threat to centralized power."

"Lou Broten's column (November 2007) "From Civic Politics to the New World Order" is to be commended for sounding the alarm re the treacherous and frightening move toward "globalization" and the quickening political activities directed to amalgamation of the nations of the world into an increasingly centralized world state or "New World Order."
Removal of the locus of political power evermore distant and beyond the control of the individual citizen portends establishment of the ultimate tyranny.

Mr. Broten's references to the influences giving impetus to this sweeping move toward centralization of world power seem apropos in consideration of such unequivocal statements from such as David Rockefeller, quoted from his autobiography Memoirs:
"For more than a century, ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions.
"Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure - one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it."

Mr. Broten's reference to the Social Credit movement, especially its policy as originally advanced by the late Major Clifford Hugh Douglas, is especially relevant inasmuch as genuine Social Credit policy would empower each citizen, through appropriate financial reform, producing growing independent income and falling prices by means of a universal National (Consumer) Dividend and Compensated Price. Social Credit poses the greatest threat to the policy of centralized power.

Webster's Dictionary misrepresents Social Credit:
His resort to Webster's Encyclopaedic Dictionary, for a definition of Social Credit is, however, unfortunate. The description presented by Webster's is almost an entire misrepresentation of Social Credit. Douglas did not propose to distribute the profits of industry to the consuming public.
His economic analysis revealed an exponentially increasing insufficiency, in each successive production cycle, of effective consumer income distributed, compared with the prices generated within that cycle by industry - a disparity largely resulting from the premature cancellation of consumer income consequent to added allocated capital charges recovered in consumer prices at point of sale.

Orthodox financial policy attempts to "bridge" this financial chasm by increasing debt issued for current consumption as an inflationary charge to be recovered from future cycles of production. The major economic problem is that in consumer prices the consumer is properly charged with capital depreciation but, quite improperly, not credited with capital appreciation.

Consumer Dividend and Price Compensation:
The Social Credit Consumer Dividend and Price Compensation would be financed by consumer credits issued from outside the industrial costing system. They would substitute for the billions of dollars of money currently created as consumer debt via bank loans.
Unlike the vast amounts of money created as loans by the banking system as exponentially expanding debt, the Social Credit consumption credits, not accounted as debt, would create no new financial costs and would be available to liquidate the earlier debts of industry contracted as bank loans to initiate the processes of production.

What Douglas advocated was the conferring upon each individual citizen, in effect, of an increasing and inalienable beneficial share in the communal capital in the form of increased purchasing power - so as to establish a condition wherein all citizens might enjoy increasing economic security 'wherein none could make them afraid.'

To Choose Willingly in the Context of a Free Association:
Social Credit is not designed to stimulate consumption, as such, but rather to allow citizens to claim, dynamically and without incurring debt as a mortgage on their futures, what they choose willingly to produce within the context of free association. They will no longer be required to produce additional goods, increasingly superfluous and destructive.
Rather than being impelled into increasingly frenetic pseudo-economic activity, citizens can be expected to opt for increasing leisure in the context of a civilized cultural milieu. The object is a genuine and balanced state of freedom, abundance and leisure. This is in contradistinction to the present orthodox financial, and, indeed communist, socialist and fascist, tyrannical state policy of 'full-employment'- a policy the results of which Douglas called 'the tragedy of human effort.'"

Immanent Sovereignty:
The desire of most "normal" people is for expanded horizons of exploration and for a more stimulating and comfortable life and they will not be satisfied with less.
It is the inherent nature of healthy-minded humans to be active, enquiring and creative -- and Social Credit would provide an environment in which the creativity of the individual would be liberated and not stifled by fear and compulsion as so often occurs under the present oppressive system which has elevated external power over mankind instead of enhancing immanent sovereignty.


SAVING THE WORLD'S FOOD SUPPLY WITH BIODYNAMIC FARMING

The following article will be of interest to older On Target readers; not because there is anything new in what is said - for them - but because it shows the work of the early pioneers of organic farming such as Lady Eve Balfour and Sir Albert Howard has continued to bear enduring fruits.

Saving the World with Biodynamic Farming:
The importance of marginal farmers in India using an emergent agricultural knowledge system against the corporate takeover of farms.
One farmer, one cow, one planet:
What if the world were an apple? One quarter of the apple is land and the rest is water. Cut the land in half and put aside that which is deserts and mountains. Quarter what is left and the peel of one of those quarters represents the topsoil that must feed the whole world. This analogy illustrates how important it is to get the best out of the available soil to provide abundant and nutritious food for everyone on the planet

Peter Proctor is a soil scientist who has worked with the stuff for over sixty years. His favourite invertebrate is the earthworm, which he describes as "the unpaid servant of soil health" and his favourite animal is the cow because of all the dung it provides. Dung is something that Proctor prizes more highly than gold, jewels, fossil fuels, or many other natural resources. His recommendation for green-fingered gardeners and for the long-term sustainability and security of global agricultural systems is the same: a complex preparation of medicinal plant material added to compost, manure and slurry. The mineral enriched compost preparations lessen soil compaction, enhance the quality of topsoil, increase microbial activity and encourage earthworms.

Known as the father of the modern biodynamic farming movement in New Zealand, Proctor's work with crisis-struck farmers in India over the past fifteen years provides a strong grassroots alternative to industrialised conventional agriculture, which is failing on all counts. Like many other critics, he believes that we have become separated from our food by a global system of multinational corporations controlling what we grow and what we eat, and biodynamic agriculture may be the last chance this planet has for a healthy, secure, and ecologically efficient food supply.

What is biodynamic agriculture?
Biodynamic agriculture is an advanced form of organic agriculture with an emphasis on food quality and soil health; and as such, uses no synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. 'Biodynamic' originates from two Greek words, bios meaning life, and dynamos meaning energy.
The pioneer of biodynamic agriculture was Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) an Austrian scientist, philosopher, and educator. He identified the deleterious effects on the soil and the deterioration of the health and quality of crops and livestock that farmers experienced following the introduction of chemical fertilizers at the turn of the twentieth century.

In a series of eight lectures known as the "Agricultural Course" made in 1924, Steiner taught the fundamental ecological principle that the farm is a living organism, an individual self-contained entity within a whole harmonious system.
In 1928, the first ecological label "Demeter" was used to certify the high quality nutritional food produced by organic and biodynamic agriculture.
Since then biodynamic farming has developed to be one of the most sustainable and successful forms of organic agriculture practiced in forty countries across the world.

NEW ZEALAND'S GALLANT KNIGHT

from David Flint's Opinion Column:
Sir Edmund Hillary: ...the heavens blaze forth the death of princes...
"When beggars die there are no comets seen;
The heavens themselves blaze forth the death of princes."
- - William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar II, ii, 30-31

On the passing of Sir Edmund Hillary, the media across the world fulsomely reported on the life and times of this extraordinary man. Even reports about the United States presidential race gave way to news of his passing on the front page of the New York Times website, Radio New Zealand reported.
It said that tribute pages were set up on other news sites including the Sydney Morning Herald, Times of London and the Times of India. In its report, The Australian abandoned or suspended its usual practice of avoiding the use of titular honours.

Citizen of Nepal...and "father of Sherpas":
A State Funeral has been offered to the family, and accepted. This is an exceptional honour; unlike Australia, where they are increasingly offered to persons of general celebrity, State Funerals are rare in New Zealand, as they remain in the United Kingdom. From the conquest of Mount Everest and for the rest of his life, Sir Edmund had sought neither celebrity status nor wealth.

He used the fame that inevitably flowed from his triumph not for himself, but for the deserving, particularly in Nepal. This resulted in the building of 26 schools, two hospitals and an airport and providing scholarships for Sherpa children. Accordingly, Sir Edmund will be remembered with particular affection in Nepal, where Sherpa friends have lit butter lamps and offered special Buddhist prayers in monasteries across the country.

In 2003, on the 50th anniversary of the climbing of Mount Everest, the government of Nepal had conferred honorary Nepali citizenship on Sir Edmund in recognition of his many services to the people and the region. He was the first foreign national to receive such an honour. Norbu Tenzing, the son of Tenzing Norgay who was with Sir Edmund on the famous climb, described the day of Sir Edmund's passing as one of "great sadness".

Sir Edmund, he said, was "a father for Sherpas" all around civis Britannicus sum ...
Sir Edmund, who came from the time when the phrase "civis Britannicus sum" symbolised the union between all men and women across the vast Empire and Commonwealth on which the sun never set, saw himself naturally as both New Zealander and British.
And so the British flag at the British High Commission in Wellington flew at half mast out of respect for Sir Edmund.

Subsequently, Sir Edmund was to be lead the second conquest of the South Pole and later, to be the only man who has stood on the summit of Everest and the site of both poles. He was overwhelmed when, as a result of his triumph, he was created a Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 1953, a singularly appropriate recognition. Subsequently, he was made a member of the Order of New Zealand.

The greatest honour:
The greatest honour his Sovereign could grant him was to come in 1995. This was when he was made a Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter (KG), which is the very pinnacle of English chivalry.
There are only twenty four companions, and the award is in The Queen's personal gift, that is, it is made without formal advice being tendered by government, British or New Zealand.

He was also awarded the Polar Medal for his part in the Commonwealth Trans-Antarctic Expedition. Various streets, schools and organisations around New Zealand and abroad are named after him, such as Hillary College in Otara, and Edmund Hillary Primary School in Papakura.
In 1992 Sir Edmund's face appeared on the updated New Zealand $5 note, the only New Zealander to appear on a banknote during his or her own lifetime.

Sir Edmund was a humble and loyal man. He has set an example of dedication, sacrifice, achievement and service that is a beacon not only for New Zealanders but for all people.


A SASKATCHEWAN INDIAN CHIEF AND CANADA'S 'HATE LAWS'

Mr. Paul Fromm, director of the Canadian Association for Free Expression (CAFDE) reports on the latest developments in one of Canada's 'free speech' legal/political battles:

"We won," Doug Christie, the Battling Barrister from Victoria, told CAFDE in a short interview this afternoon, after the Saskatchewan Court of Appeals upheld the Court of Queen's Bench ruling throwing out the 2005 Sec. 319 "hate law" conviction of Saskatchewan Indian Chief David Ahenakew for comments made to a reporter.

At trial, Doug Christie, the country's most experienced counsel in challenging Canada's notorious "hate" laws argued that the Chief's remarks had been "in private conversation" and not public - a key element in a Sec. 319 conviction. If anyone was guilty of promoting "hate" it was the reporter and newspaper that trumpeted the fruits of their interview, obtained after much harassment and bating of Chief Ahenakew.

Already Jewish lobby groups are howling that this decision be appealed to the Supreme Court so that the suppression of minority-insensitive dissent may continue:

"The Canadian Jewish Congress echoed B'nai Brith's call to prosecutors. 'What the justices have done is they have held the issue of wilfulness to an extremely high standard and the real question is going to become whether or not it should be at this high standard,' said CEO Bernie Farber. 'That is something that I think needs to go to the Supreme Court.'" (Canadian Press, January 14, 2008)

The Freedom Rebellion is Spreading Mr. Fromm reports:
"Neo-Con Zionist Hangs Tough Against Human Rights Tyrants in Alberta. The freedom rebellion is spreading. Once again Ezra Levant, a combative Zionist and neo-Con, who, to his credit, has been a consistent supporter of free speech, is spitting defiance at the tyrants and investigators of the Alberta Human Rights Commission, inquiring ads to why he let Canadians see what the controversy was all about by re-publishing satirical, Danish cartoons about Islam almost two years ago.
Just tonight, Michael Coren, another neo-Con, broadcaster featured a host of spokesman denouncing human rights commissions and attacks on free speech.

A major Toronto talk show programme called today to invite me, as a spokesman for the Canadian Association for Free Expression,to participate with free speech lawyers Doug Christie (Jim Keegstra, Ersnt Zundel, Malcolm Ross, Tony McAleer, Paul Fromm., Glenn Bahr, Chief David Ahenakew, and many other free speech victims) and Peter Lindsay (Ernst Zundel, the "Honk if you hate gypsies five", Mark Elms) this Friday in a discussion of the attacks on free speech in Canada, especially at the hands of human rights commissions.

The producer told me: "This year, 2008, will be the year of free speech in Canada." Let's hope so. Let's hope the freedom rebellion will spread


ACTIONISTS TO THE FORE! BRITISH AIRWAYS NEEDS A SHARP REBUKE

A correspondent has brought to our attention the following news: British Court Rules Airline can Censor Cross worn by Employees: www.catholic.org 1/12/2008. A British Airways employee who sued her employer after it required her to cover up a cross necklace while she worked has lost her religious discrimination lawsuit, WorldNetDaily reports.
Nadia Eweida, a check-in worker at Heathrow Airport and a Coptic Christian, was sent home after refusing to remove the cross necklace. British Airways said the necklace was a violation of the company's dress code. Eweida charged her employer with religious discrimination, saying that the company allowed religious employees like those adhering to Islam or Hinduism to wear faith-related clothing, jewellery, religious markings, or other items.

The Reading Employment Tribunal had previously ruled against Eweida, but she appealed the decision. The 56-year-old Eweida, who was placed on unpaid leave, reacted to the ruling, saying, "I'm very disappointed. I'm speechless really because I went to the tribunal to seek justice. But the judge has given way for BA to have a victory on imposing their will on all their staff."

Eweida was represented by an attorney from the Alliance Defence Fund. Chief Counsel Benjamin Bull issued a statement responding to the decision. "Christian employees should not be singled out for discrimination. This decision will be appealed," he said.
"According to British Airways, it's OK for employees to wear a symbol of their faith unless it's a Christian cross. The airline took no action against employees of other religions who wore jewellery or symbols of their religion. That type of intolerance is inconsistent with the values of civilized communities around the world."

The court ruled that the airline can prohibit Eweida from visibly wearing the cross. It held that other types of religious symbols, such as turbans, bangles, and other religious markings, are acceptable because they cannot be concealed. In a statement, British Airways said: "We have always maintained that our uniform policy did not discriminate against Christians, and we are pleased that the tribunal's decision supports our position. Our current policy allows symbols of faith to be worn openly and has been developed with multi-faith groups and our staff." British Airways noted Eweida's eight years of employment with the company, saying she "continues to be a valued member of our staff."

Actionists go out and spread the word.
Get your contacts to spread the word that any who fly by British Airways (BA) do something along the lines one of the Scandinavian peoples did during WW2 The people wore a safety pin in their lapels as a sign of protest at the German occupation. It had quite a psychological effect on the German authorities and uplifted the spirits of the people

If flying BA, all Christians should prominently wear their Christian crosses (or any other Christian symbol) during their flights and bring it to the attention of the flight attendants, asking them to pass the message on to their captains and others in authority.

All your contacts should also write letters of protest to the British Airways Company- even insisting they will not fly with the company till they reverse their policy.
