8 April 2011 Thought for the Week:
In the 1990s, SBS TV showed a very revealing documentary on the role of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, and linked these institutions with the Third World’s political cronies and international corporate elites. The policies of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank led to the subsequent destruction of the nations’ economies and environment. One important resource, essential for all Life, that the ‘planners’ gained control of in these countries was Water.
John Perkins was one of the ‘insiders’ who broke ranks with those involved in this takeover and wrote of what was happening (“Confessions of an Economic Hitman”). In the following videos he explains just how the takeover was/is accomplished.
ANGER ERUPTS OVER HILLS ZONE PROPOSED WATER CONTROLS
The ABC “Anger erupts over Hills zone water plan” covered this recent public meeting about government proposals for controls in the Hills region water plan. “Locals jeered officials at a public meeting (user submitted: James Allan). Hundreds of people have jeered government officials at a public meeting at Strathalbyn over a plan to limit water use in the western Mount Lofty Ranges. The catchment supplies water to about 75 per cent of South Australia's population”.
They provide guidelines to determine business decisions; property use; medical care; education curriculum; foreign policy; economics; taxes; labour policy; career decisions; housing; building material; farming policy; and much more.
SOCIAL CREDIT IN THE NEW DARK AGE
by James Reed
He says “We had plenty of warning, even forty years, that if we did not defeat the policy of the Money Power within a few years we should enter another Dark Age, and it is quite evident that we have now entered it! Dr. Dobbs points to the decline of Christian culture at the time, but as I have been arguing for over half a decade here, 1979 is like a golden age compared to the decadence and degeneracy that parades as normality today. Nevertheless, even in these dark times there is hope: in fact there is hope from social credit especially because the times are dark:
“A strong torch is a useful tool in the dusk, which precedes dawn. It loses its value when the sun rises. But it is very pleasant to bask in the sunshine of a balmy summer’s day, living as it were upon the moral capital of our Christian ancestors; but it is a good deal more challenging and exciting to have to build up that moral capital, that social credit, again. The strong torch which Douglas has given us, is a lot more useful when the shades of night are setting in.”
We must do as St. Paul recommended, fight the good fight and ensure that we pass the torch of Faith. This dark age, like the last, will pass. Our oppressors, like all oppressors, will die, their prisons will crumble to the ground and the winds blow their ashes away.
MONEY AND THE GAMES FINANCIERS PLAY
by James Reed
The Social Crediter is a magazine of hope which has insightful articles championing economic freedom. The Winter 2010 edition (northern hemisphere) deals with the land question or the relationship between economy and ecology. An article by Thomas Berry, “The Sacred Universe” goes to the heart of the matter about the need for harmony between human life and nature. As the editor summarises: “This will require the development of an entirely new mind-set through which people will engage with each other, forming local think-tanks rooted in locality and community”. This “small is beautiful” localism is what environmentalism used to be, and should be able to be, but “Green” parties have been hijacked by the left and political correctness.
The Landlord’s Game: The economy/ecology question features the work of leading social crediter Dr Frances Hutchinson. In “The Land Question” she approaches the issue through a discussion of the game “The Landlord’s Game, a precursor of Monopoly”. Monopoly is about the zero-sum, Darwinian world or ruthless capitalism, while The Landlord’s Game has three phases and only the first phase operates within the confines of conventional neo-classical economics. Phases 2 and 3 introduce a world beyond naked greed and re-introduce us to community and co-operation. The world needs to move beyond a phase 1 economics to a phase 2 and 3 economics to an economics of sustainability.
Dr Hutchinson points out that social crediter C.H. Douglas was also aware of the need for ecological thinking about the natural world and in The Social Crediter, December 5, 1942, p.97 said this:
Dr Hutchinson also concludes that “Humanity is currently engrossed in a vast game of Monopoly, living parasitically off the Earth’s resources like an infant totally oblivious to anything but its own present demands”. (p.78)
WOW! THAT WAS FAST WORK!
BBC News: Libyan rebels 'sign oil export deal with Qatar': Libyan rebels say they have signed an oil contract with Qatar to export oil from rebel-held territory. "We are producing about 100,000 to 130,000 barrels a day, we can easily up that to about 300,000 a day," rebel spokesman Ali Tarhouni told the Associated Press. He said that shipments of crude would start in "less than a week". The rebels say their main concern is obtaining insurance for any tankers taking oil from Libya.
CIA, British Special Forces Swarm Through Libya by David Dayen: 31 March, 2011
Reuters also had it that Obama had signed a secret order to provide the Libyan rebels with weapons, but that presumably meant humanitarian weapons rather than the kind you use to kill enemy soldiers and resolve post-revolutionary political disputes with. The administration, however, denies that this decision has been made. Meanwhile, the Gaddafist state continues to disintegrate as foreign minister Moussa Koussa defected to the United Kingdom but Gaddafi’s troops made advances on the ground…” More here...
WE NOW KNOW WHY GADDAFI TO BE 'THROWN TO THE WOLVES'
“There is no question anymore as to why the Obama administration is attempting to impose a change of the regime of Libya. On March 17th I wrote about the invasion of Libya being about two main objectives: privatizing the national oil company and the state-owned central banking system. I pointed out that the US and British inserted language in the UN resolution that allowed them to freeze the accounts of the nationalized oil company as well as the central bank of Libya. Well, before they have even won their coup, the CIA backed pro-west opposition has taken the time to announce that they have formed a new national oil company and central bank.
It has always been about gaining control of the central banking system in Libya. Oil is just a profitable side issue like every other state asset that is waiting in Libya to be privatized and sold off to multinational corporations like Bechtel, GE, and Goldman Sachs. Oil is important and it is certainly a target but it isn’t the driving force behind these global wars for profit. Banking is.
Once the Coalition Provisional Authority took over in Iraq, the second thing they did, after signing a law banning the Baathists and disbanding the military, was to sign over the state-owned central banking system to privately held banking interests, bringing Iraq online with the web of private central banks. That took place the very first day of the CPA’s control of Iraq. "United Nations resolution 1483 transferred the authority to authorize expenditures from Iraq’s oil revenue from the United Nations to the Coalition Provisional Authority…
After the U.S. military came in and took over Iraq, the CPA quickly began issuing many binding orders privatizing Iraq’s economy and opening it up to foreign investment. This was welcomed by many multinational corporations who saw the war as an opportunity to make billions of dollars in profits." (Wiki)
If you control the issuance of money in a country and can turn huge profits while enslaving the population with the debt that it produces, then everything, everything including the oil and everything else, belongs to you. "You control the debt, you control everything. This is the very nature of banking. To make us all, whether it is a nation or an individual, slaves to debt." (The International)
That is why control of the central bank was far more important than the oil in Iraq or in Libya.
"The rebels in Libya are in the middle of a life or death civil war and Moammar Gadhafi is still in power and yet somehow the Libyan rebels have had enough time to establish a new Central Bank of Libya and form a new national oil company…
Apparently someone felt that it was very important to get pesky matters such as control of the banks and control of the money supply out of the way even before a new government is formed." (The Economic Collapse)
EURO-US WAR ON LIBYA: OFFICIAL LIES & MISCONCEPTIONS OF CRITICS
by James Petras and Robin E. Abaya, March 2011.
A clue is in the selectivity of Western military intervention
The key point is that while Libya allows the biggest US-European multi-nationals to plunder its oil wealth, it did not become a strategic geo-political-military asset of the empire. As we have written in many previous essays the driving force of US empire-building is military - and not economic. This is why billions of dollars of Western economic interests and contracts had been sacrificed in the setting up of sanctions against Iraq and Iran – with the costly result that the invasion and occupation of Iraq shut down most oil exploitation for over a decade.
The Washington-led assault on Libya, with the majority of air sorties and missiles strikes being carried out by the Obama regime, is part of a more general counter-attack in response to the most recent Arab popular pro-democracy movements. The West is backing the suppression of these pro-democracy movements throughout the Gulf; it finances the pro-imperial, pro-Israel junta in Egypt and it is intervening in Tunisia to ensure that any new regime is “correctly aligned”. It supports a despotic regime in Algeria as well as Israel’s daily assaults on Gaza. In line with this policy, the West backs the uprising of ex-Gaddafites and right-wing monarchists, confident that the ‘liberated’ Libya will once again provide military bases for the US-European military empire-builders.”

SURE, BLOW UP THE HUMANITIES TOBY
by James Reed
Is it too much to hope for in our multiculturalised mess for a return to the classics in the modern degree machine university. It is better for real knowledge to flourish outside the university, in organisations like ours, and allow the universities to slowly rot. The dark age is already here and it is now our sacred task to preserve the best of Western civilisation.

THE THANOS HYPOTHESIS
by James Reed
The Thanos hypothesis, which sees the Enemy as criminally insane and collectively psychotic, better explains the self-destructive course which They have put the world onto. The Enemy does not care about the destruction of life, biodiversity and nature in the name of growth and development. The fruits of growth and development soon bore them and they spit the rich food of modernity from their mouths. Enjoyment is nothing; only the endless repetition of capitalism exists for them. This cannot be, other than a philosophy of death and the negation of the life force.
WOLF PACK: SHOWING AT A THEATRE NEAR YOU
by Chris Knight
The image is striking: a darkened landscape, vicious, starving wolves encircling… it reminds me of Australian politics. But I would expect the real wolves to be less vicious than the wolfpack of politicians. And, of course, less disloyal.
IMMIGRATION NATION: REALLY OFF THE RAILS
by Brian Simpson
The article is by someone taking “a generally progressive, liberal and leftist view on issues of immigration and refugees” but sees the documentary as making “assertions without evidence and it misunderstands the role of key individuals”.
KEEPING IT REAL
by Grace Lowe
It seems that many other Australians share my dislike for the current food climate and have taken it upon themselves to fight back. Currently operating in the states of Queensland, Sydney and Adelaide, Food Connect abides by the principles of ‘Community Supported Agriculture’ a successful system in practice for the past 20 years in North America.
Essentially, the farmer offers a certain number of “shares” to the public, which generally consists of a box of vegetables/fruit or other farming goods; consumers purchase a share (membership or subscription) and receive a weekly box of seasonal produce throughout the farming season. There’s no choice as to the box’s individual content, which may not suit all people, but this way you get a ‘surprise’ each week, with recipe ideas and a newsletter introducing you to the growers and their farms.
Food Connect claims to have not only increased access to local, organically grown food but have offered farmers an incentive to make the transition to organic production (with 40% of the food dollar as opposed to 15 – 20% as industry standard). So in short, your fruit and veg are grown and packed in your home town ready for you to pick up each week.
THE INVASION OF THE ASIAN HONEY BEE
An editorial in The Stock Journal (28 October, 2010 “Will You Say Enough Is Enough” sums up the rural crisis and the plight of our farmers aptly: “Rural communities are facing hospital closures, cost-recovery levies, irrigation cuts that would cripple food productivity, and yet more pushes to carve-up our prime agricultural land for housing”.
South Australian farmers have been hit in the guts with a new bio security levy. But what ‘SECURITY’!?
The Asian bee is a host for varroa mites which it spreads. It is predicted by the federal government that varroa mites will cost Australian agriculture $50 million a year.
The federal government has decided to stop eradicating the Asian honey bee.
