12 June 2009 Thought for the Week:
“Every advance in art and science tends to eliminate time and labour from the productive process. It is conceivable that time and labour could be so far eliminated, that all the material goods - food, clothes, housing, transportation - necessary or convenient for the maintenance of high civilisation, might be produced easily within the space of a single year.
It would then become obvious that the social structure itself is the pre-dominant factor in economics, that commodities are mere emanations from the power of the social organism, that the community is really capitalist in chief, and that the administration of credits is a social function whereby each undertaker of enterprise is empowered to wield an economic force proportioned to his proved ability and to the magnitude of the social task.
If we suppose that these four staples of the economic fabric - food, clothes, housing and transportation - make equal demands upon social strength, they would require equal credits; and these credits would be used up pari passi through the year and the accounts cleared against one another, without any considerable amount of initial capital.
Our actual business system is blind to the truth that the organisation of intelligence and morals - the civil community - is the principal agent of production; although that truth has been sharply emphasised by the modern grand-scaled development of public education - with its plain implication that the racial inheritance of science and art is common property, and that this kind of property is more precious than any other kind.
A world-wide business system has been built up on a false basis. This system has been supposed to have an existence independent of civil society…”
- - Charles Ferguson in “The Great News” 1915
A NATION 'S BALANCE SHEET
by Wallace Klinck, Canada
The purpose of production is to provide goods and services for people - not work. The Consumer Dividend and Compensated Price are the central Social Credit instruments to achieve this end. Social Credit is not work-oriented. It is consumption and leisure-oriented.
C. H. Douglas saw no problem whatsoever as early as the 1920s in deriving the essential statistics for implementation of the Social Credit Consumer Dividend and Compensated Price. Denis Byrne prepared comprehensive documentation of this nature in “The Case for Alberta: Parts I and II”, for the Province of Alberta some six decades ago without the help of modern computing systems. This is simply a task for professional paid accountants to perform.
By accepted practice, the Bank of Canada today is supposed to operate in this fashion although it is in fact an agency of orthodox financial policy which no politician has shown either the intelligence or integrity to question.
The factor which stands in the way of adopting Social Credit financial policy is not a difficulty with statistics. It is an intellectually and morally misguided, partly ill-informed but often complicit, stiff-necked, conceited and arrogant establishment which is convinced that freedom for humanity would spell the end of civilisation--for their own precious sinecure, at least, in respect of control over the resources of the earth.
CHINA IS THE THREAT
by James Reed
The white paper cautiously notes: “Shows of force by rising powers [China is not named explicitly] are likely to become more common as their military capacities expand. Growing economic interdependence does not preclude inter-state conflicts or tensions short of war, especially over resources or political differences”.
A headline in the Sydney Morning Herald (2-3/5/09, p.1) is more explicit “America will not protect us, warns Rudd: Arms build-up to face China”. Rudd rightly sees an end to US primacy in the Asia-Pacific region. The article says: “The change, caused by the rise of new great powers such as China, is set to produce growing regional tensions and a ‘sudden deterioration’ in Australia’s security”.
If defence logic were divorced from economics, we would see the utter folly of feeding China raw materials and allowing this power to grow by buying its goods. What sense is there to our globalised economy if, a few decades down the track, China invades and wipes us out – thanks of course to our ‘yellow Australia’ immigration policy. These sorts of civilisation-survival strategies are a long way away from how our elites think.
Thus Doug Ritchie, global head of strategy at Rio Tino (“Foreign Money Built the Country”, The Australian, 5/5/09, p.101) argues that Chinese investment should be welcomed because, well, the country was built on foreign money.
CALIFORNIA IS THE FIRST TO FALL
by Brian Simpson
Indeed, Presidents from Clinton to Bush supported the idea of home loans to people, often the ‘disadvantaged’ who had poor credit histories. Consequently, the sub-prime mortgage crisis.
CARBON TRADING SCHEME: VENT MY FRUSTRATION
by Terence Holmes
Being a Social Crediter and, I hope, a realist, I see it differently again. I perceive it as another example of the type of control which is attempted by the manipulation of finance.
As revealed so eloquently by Thomas Robertson in his book “Human Ecology,”… Finance, which should be the measure of wealth and the servant of economic life, has been reversed in its role and now dictates what it allows to be physically possible!
Who would disagree that pollution should be discouraged? But to drive it by the power to issue and/or withhold credit takes another measure of freedom and responsibility away from the individual (capitalist) and places it in the lap of the law and thereby, the State. This, my friends, is another step towards Socialism.
How long will we continue to exchange our freedoms for someone else's proposition of economic security? Pretty soon, we will all be ‘nice’ - not because of its moral attribute, but because it will cost us dearly to be otherwise!
FREDRICK TOBEN WINS RIGHT TO APPEAL
by Betty Luks
The chairman of the CSC gave Dr. Toben an opportunity to share some of his experiences over the last fifteen years as a ‘historical revisionist’. This included the time he spent in a German prison, because he dared to think otherwise than the official version of the ‘Holocaust’, according to the laws of Germany.
I can report, Justice Anthony Besanko suspended the arrest warrant until the date of that hearing - August 13 - and deferred the gaol term to allow Dr. Toben to file appeal papers. The judge did remind Toben of his promise not to leave South Australia except to see his Melbourne-based lawyer.

THE CONSTITUTION AND HUMAN RIGHTS IDEOLOGIES
by Ian Wilson LL.B.
Opponents of a human rights act have argued that the courts could use such an act to make laws contrary to the intention of parliament. Branson argues that there is ‘no constitutional impediment to a human rights act requiring courts to interpret federal legislation consistently with the human rights identified in the act, so long as that interpretation was consistent with the purpose of the legislation’. Well this is a long way from what many want, where human rights can be used as a universal standard for assessing law. Later passed laws, inconsistent with the human rights act may on this account not be necessarily invalid.
Branson is concerned that a trespass on fundamental rights and freedoms has occurred. No, she is not thinking of the freedom of speech of Dr Fredrick Tobin, but things like mandatory detention, things that the new class don’t like. Presumably the idea of human rights is to knock over things like mandatory detention and sedition laws. So the courts would have usurped legislative power after all – and that violates the separation of powers from where I stand! Give me Rudd any day – at least we can vote him out!
THE LAWYER 'S BONANZA: A BILL OF RIGHTS
by Ian Wilson LL.B.
Carr shows that countries with a bill of rights, contrary to the likes of lawyer Geoffrey Robertson, who supports a bill of rights, are generally less, not more, free than nations with them.
Parliaments, as shown by Britain, make “decisions shaped by fear of being overruled by court action on human rights grounds”.
AUSTRALIA IS NOT A CROWNED REPUBLIC
by Philip Benwell
Whilst our constitutional monarchy is vested in the people and comprises many safeguards that republicans would like to see, but can never achieve in a republic, that does not in any way mean that our system is republican.
I believe that monarchists are unwise to use the term ?crowned republic? as it can always be construed as meaning ‘half-way towards a republic’. If we are to use terminology, we should say we are a ‘crowned democracy’.
ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS! GOOD NEWS!
by James Reed
This financial crash of the universities is, I believe, to be welcomed as these institutions have led the charge in the promotion of every evil that has engulfed this Anglo-Australia nation.
More has been done by the Australian League of Rights, in my opinion, in the preservation of our people, race and culture, than by the universities. The works of Eric Butler are, in my opinion, far superior to the scribbling of our so-called learned professors.
MISSION: TARGET 'ALL WHITE PEOPLE '
by Brian Simpson
“Race war” would have been a better description but political correctness did not permit this.
People were shot, shops looted, cars torched and people bashed. Y
In reality, I suppose most people would not have cared a hoot about this – the real cause was that the colonial descendants own 90% of the wealth. But if these people go and take their wealth with them, will the blacks of Guadeloupe ultimately be any better? Already tourists are avoiding the place like the plague (or swine flu). These are the sorts of agonising dilemmas that multiracial societies end up in.
GREG SEES THE END OF RACE BUT PENNY JUST RACES ON
by James Reed
Greg should have consulted with climate change guru Penny Wong, featured in The Weekend Australian’s magazine. This Asian lesbian we are told, has been “driven by [combating] racism” (“Racism Driving Force for Wong”, The Weekend Australian, 23-24/05/09, p.4).
Funny isn’t it how all these successful ethnics always cry about how ‘racist’ Australia is, the nation that accepted them in as migrants and provided the opportunities for their success?
Would an Anglo-Saxon ‘Penny Wrong’ be permitted to become a citizen of China, or any other Asian nation, and slam China in print?
ON AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL IDENTITY
by Len the Cleaner and James Reed
Predictably enough, Jaensch goes on about how our diets have gained diversity. Supposedly in the 1950’s, all that one could eat at Hindley Street cafes were pies, fish and chips. Now the ethnics have given us their wonderful food.
Jaensch concludes with a weak nod to nationalism, that “it is important that all people should feel a strong sense of national identity”, for there ‘are too many countries in the world that are riven by ethnic and racial problems.” Well, how did they get them Dean? Precisely by embracing multiculturalism and multiracialism!
Jaensch says that we are all “Australians”, but what possible meaning can that have when our heritage is being eroded? There can be no Australian identity with such differences. To use Len’s immoral words: under multiculturalism, nations just become vast public conveniences.
SEEN ANY GOOD HOLOCAUST /ANTI-NAZI MOVIES LATELY?
by Peter West
In “The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas”, two boys sitting on opposite sides of a German death camp fence become friends. But why was the Jewish boy permitted to go so close to the boundary fence? In all camps, inmates would have been kept back from the fence behind a ‘no-go’ line (and wasn’t this a ‘death camp’ anyway?)
People coming up to the fence from outside, as close as Bruno, would have been shot by the guards. The movie is nonsense in my opinion. As for the other two, I can’t really review them as I found both of them so boring that I fell asleep about 20 minutes into them. Having ‘seen’ these movies I have been cured of my desire to enter another cinema and am happy to return to work in the bush.
THE JOY OF GUN OWNERSHIP
by John Steele
The Davies’ article has a colour picture of an SLR assault rifle (as we called them in the army, a truly beautiful gun) with a column “Out of Control”. The statistics go: each day 84 people die in the US from “gun violence” 34 of them murdered. Source: Brady Centre to Prevent Gun Violence!
Another statistic: the presence of a gun in the home triples the risk of a homicide. How could this be and how could it be known? Most gun owning homes are homicide-free. Only if there was intent to first commit homicide would this be an issue. The gun is not the cause of the homicide.
Finally, these statistics are cited: in 2007 the Australian murder rate was 1.3 per 100,000 and US rate 5.6 per 100,000. Presumably we are to blame guns for this. But these sorts of cross-cultural comparisons are invalid because no statistically rigorous test is made for guns as the cause of the difference. The different rates could be due to other factors such as race.
Gun ownership is the ultimate expression of individualism and self-reliance. Liberals hate these values and that is why the likes of Obama want to ban guns. That is why Howard did so in 1996. The joy of gun ownership is the joy of freedom. I say ‘don’t hug trees, hug guns!’
