On Target

7 October 2011 Thought for the Week:

Society and Credit: “The credit of a society belongs to the individual members of that society, and Governments should have to come to individuals for required credits in the same way that a company is dependent upon shareholders for its share capital. A State Monopoly of credit creation and issue is one of Karl Marx's ten steps for Communising a State. This policy is an expression of a philosophy diametrically opposed to the philosophy of Social Credit. Douglas said that the proper role of the State is to distribute dividends to individuals. The individual must be free to decide how best to use his own credit”.

- - Eric D. Butler, “Releasing Reality” 1979

Technocracy, the Grid System, Smart Meters and the proposed Carbon Imprint: “The Grid Electricity Scheme, the Child of the brain of Samuel Insull, the London-born Chicago Jew, who was pursued around Europe by a United States warrant on a charge of fraud probably represents the sabotage of fifty million sterling value in serviceable plant alone… and immensely greater military vulnerability”.

- - Clifford Hugh Douglas, “In Whose Service is Perfect Freedom”  (Appeared serially in The Social Crediter from 1939 up to 1940)


NEW NATIONAL DIRECTOR FOR AUSTRALIAN LEAGUE OF RIGHTS

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Louis Cook as the League’s new National Director.

TRADER TELLS BBC - STOCK MARKET IS ‘TOAST’

The headlines read: Trader Tells BBC That Goldman Sachs Rules the World and the Stock Market is "Toast".
If your instinct tells you the world financial system is screwed but you don't know why, let trader Allesio Rastani explain. Maybe the only stock market dude ever to be honest outside of his crony circle, Rastani appeared on the BBC this morning to discuss why hedge funds and other smart/big money firms "don't care" about the Eurozone and are moving away from the market.

"Most traders don't really care that much how they're going to fix the economy," he said. "Our job is to make money from it... I have a confession. I go to bed every night and dream of another recession."
Thank you, Rastani, for your candid statements. But there is more!
"The governments don't rule the world. Goldman Sachs rules the world." He's kind of like a rogue hero, even though his field is little gross.

Now how does one reconcile such a ‘dog-eat-dog’ approach to one’s fellow man with the Christian concept of “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”? It is a preference for money, in terms of personal advancement, above all other considerations that leads to all kinds of evil!

Social Dynamics: The League’s “Social Dynamics” DVDs posted on the front webpage are still the best introduction to the ‘money question’… after you have downloaded them we suggest you download Jeremy Lee’s MP3 on Global Debt.

BREAKING NEW GROUND

Frances Hutchinson, United Kingdom:
The following letter from Dr. Hutchinson on her return to her homeland was received by the National Director Donald Auchterlonie who gave permission to share it with our readers.

“It is early morning here in Keighley as I start to write this letter of thanks. I owe a great debt of appreciation to all concerned with my recent visit to you, making it possible for me to travel across the world to speak at the State Weekend, on the occasion of the 65th anniversary of the founding of the Australian League of Rights.

As I travelled home and rested from the journey I had a good deal to think about. All the topics we covered at the State Weekend, and the Second Weekend, on the theme of "Breaking New Ground," are indeed opening new avenues of thought, which will lead, I am sure, to the inspiration of fresh courses of action. Looking up at the planes criss-crossing the sky, travelling in all directions across the world, one falls to wondering about the travellers who keep the airlines in business. Why are so many people leaving their homes to travel vast distances in a matter of hours, only to return in a matter of days or a couple of weeks? The vast bulk of air travel is generated by the corporate world. Employees of global corporations travel to conduct their business, whilst tourists are encouraged to spend their money on touring from place to place on endless holidays. As they take off and land they see nothing of the countries which lie between their homes and their destinations. And even in the countries they visit, the vast majority of modern travellers live in a world cocooned from nature and the local ways of life.

I am so grateful to Arnie and Beata Luks for introducing me to the local flora and fauna, and the local ways of life, during my stay in Australia. As we travelled around the Adelaide area I listened to the history of the place, and the stories of the people who have lived there. A mere two hundred years ago the overwhelming majority of travellers to that land were settlers, leaving behind for ever their friends, families and familiar climatic conditions. Travel was by sailing ship, a matter of spending weeks on end at sea, in the heat and cold, living on a diet of dried food and stored water. Some, like the German Lutherans of Hahndorf, settled as a community, on land they were granted by negotiation, and which they subsequently farmed generation after generation. Others, as refugees from persecution, took employment on any terms offered until they were free to establish farms or businesses of their own. From the early 1800s to the unsettled decades of the mid-twentieth century, settlers came from England, Scotland, Ireland, Eastern Europe and elsewhere, as the local family names, place names and architecture proclaim.

My journey to the other end of the world drew me to read once more the speeches Douglas presented in Sydney and Dunedin in January and February 1934. It is small wonder that those "Two Important Speeches", brought forth the tidal wave of criticism from the powers that be, as mentioned in one of my talks. Douglas spoke authoritatively about the world-wide popular people's Social Credit movement which was spreading at grassroots level. He also spoke of the failure of economic thought to catch up with the realities of the technological revolution which was producing actual and potential surpluses in every staple product throughout the 'developed' world. Instead of facing the facts and adapting to the realities of the real economy, finance was seeking to adapt reality to the dictates of financial economy.

As Douglas explained: "During the past year there was held in London - in 1933 - one of the greatest conferences that ever met together, a world economic conference, and the entire agenda of that conference was to consider means of making the production of the world fit the consuming power of the world, not to make the consuming power of the world [i.e., the money system] fit the production power of the world, but to bring down the production power of the world to the existing purchasing or consuming power of the world." This conference (though re-routed to Manhattan) features in Eimar O'Duffy's “Asses in Clover”, from which we drew considerable amusement during my time with you. As a re-reading of the two speeches shows, at this point in time Douglas still believed that the 'powers that be' were simply misguidedly clinging to 'outworn and obsolete theories'. All he needed to do, it seemed, was to present clear and logical arguments, and in time common sense would prevail.

The events of the following two years brought about a change in the tone of Douglas' mode of address. Gone is the buoyant optimism of these two speeches, following the attacks in print and the media, from Crowther, the Labour Party and elsewhere, coupled with the early manipulation of the situation in Alberta which prevented Douglas from playing a direct role in the unfolding of events subsequent to the election. (See “The Political Economy of Social Credit and Guild Socialism”, which, together with “Understanding the Financial System”, remain the only authoritative accounts of the history of what actually happened during the 1920s, 30s and 40s.)

I have long felt that the later part of Douglas' life and work, from the late 1930s to his death in 1952, was marred by his frustration at the failed promise of the first part of his career (1918-1934). In those early years, during which memories of the First World War were vivid in people's minds, the common sense of what Douglas was saying seemed to sweep all before it. Eric Butler, Elizabeth and Geoffrey Dobbs and other familiar figures in the movement were yet to come onto the scene. By the time they did so, the mood had changed to one of anger and frustration, with optimism playing second fiddle. I was very much encouraged by being able to join you for a brief while. In my early researches into Social Credit I focused upon the early period of Douglas's writings. These seemed to be solid, sensible and free from the controversies surrounding the later period. My expectation was Douglas' common sense economics only had to be presented clearly, and thoughtful academics would lead the way in teaching the new economics to the next generation of students. Instead, obstacle after obstacle was placed in my path. Finally, I came to the conclusion that the situation was hopeless.

This is the social art, social sculpture, social architecture of which we spoke, emerging to challenge the soul-less social sciences of academia

What I brought back from Australia was a renewed sense of optimism. Yes, bureaucracy rages across the land, as it does in all parts of the world today. Yes, education has been reduced to processing cogs in the wheels of bureaucracy. And yes, the icy grip of finance holds sway upon the cultural, political and economic spheres of society. But that is only for the present. The seeds of past opposition to rampant materialist fundamentalism are beginning to sprout in Australia. Slowly, almost imperceptibly, the thinking of individual men and women is changing, as they become aware that all is not what they were led to believe from their education and the mass media. Where livelihoods and health are concerned, individuals are finding solutions to their problems and in the process providing inspiration to others. This is the social art, social sculpture, social architecture of which we spoke, emerging to challenge the soul-less social sciences of academia.

I'm not at all sure that you gained all you hoped for when you so generously invited me to travel across the world to speak at your annual gathering. What I do know is that the visit to Adelaide has restored my sense of purpose. A guiding hand took me from late summer in Yorkshire to early spring in Australia, where everything looks so full of promise for good things to emerge in the not-too-distant future. We in Yorkshire and elsewhere in the UK look forward to maintaining the personal contacts already established so that we can continue to work together.

Once more, I thank most warmly all concerned at the Australian League of Rights for all the arrangements which made possible my visit to Adelaide”.


AUSTRALIA IS ON AN ASIAN GOOD BEHAVIOUR BOND!

by James Reed
The James Reed award for Political Correctness and Cultural Cringing to Asia Beyond the Call of Duty, for this week, goes to Richard Woolcott, former secretary of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. Recently he told the Brisbane faithful that Australia had an “image problem” because of its history (presumably White Australia) and “latent feelings of racism and religious intolerance.” Best yet: “We’re on a good behaviour bond in our own region.” And what, pray tell is our crime, beyond existing?

This sort of rhetoric was more common in the Keating days. It is so absurd that it does not require much refutation: anyone who knows anything about Asia knows that most of these societies are not even democracies and almost all have racially restrictive immigration policies. Woolcott’s blabberings are strictly for domestic consumption, something our new class elite regularly require.  


CHINESE GLOATING OVER THE DECLINE OF U.S.

by James Reed
Professor Yiwei Wang of Tongji, University China (“Don’t Blame Rivals for US Decline,” The Australian, September 6, 2011, p.8) makes a number of valid criticisms of the United States, which like Rome is essentially suffering from imperialism overshoot after Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. But Wang goes on to say that the US is now looking at China as a potential enemy: “The possible outcome of overestimating China’s strength and underestimating America’s strength may be tragedy in the making” Wang says. But Wang also says that there is a saying in China: “Misfortune might be a blessing in disguise. Success at the expense of a rival’s downfall usually ends in one’s own destruction.” That saying is equally as applicable to China.

Editor’s comment: The Heritage Book Services once carried a book titled: “The Asian Mind Game: a Westerner’s Survival Manual” in which the author Chin-Ning Chu explained why gullible westerners were at such a disadvantage when dealing with Asians whether in war, trade or business. We do not understand the Asian mind-set – to our disadvantage.  


THE CAMP OF THE SAINTS AND OUR POLITICALLY CORRECT HIGH COURT

by Ian Wilson LL.B.
It was not surprising to find our politically correct High Court rejecting Gillard’s so-called Malaysian solution. After all, Australia will still be committed to taking 4000 extra refugees from Malaysia over the next four years as well as sending a message to “people smugglers” that Australia’s borders are open for violation. Wherever and whatever Australia does to attempt to stop the boats, lawyers of the refugee lobby will contest that. The culture of law from the pass-level law student to the highest judges in the country is essentially “open borders” – illegal aliens or as they call them “asylum seekers” – have a right to this country and in any numbers. The refugee advocates have never expressed any concern about a “Camp of the Saints” situation developing in Australia. We have ample affluence for all the world to share, forever, without limit.

Perhaps the only thing which Gillard has done right in her time as PM is criticising the High Court for its judicial activism in migration. How often are discussions of this court based on “public policy” and “social wellbeing” – and yet as Gillard noted, the Court has essentially allowed the people-smuggling business to continue. There’s public policy for you! And as for the claim that the majority of judges were just interpreting section 198A of the Migration Act according to precedent and law – Gillard is again right. There is nothing in the plain words of that section to require some Third Party processing country like Malaysia to have legal obligations towards asylum-seekers. The majority simply imposed their own pro-asylum-seeker politics upon the law. It just felt like the right thing to do.

Indications are that Gillard and Abbott will work together to amend the Migration Act to counter the High Court. But beyond that the 1951 UN refugee convention, implemented for Jewish refugees, has led to the lawyers’ lobby claiming that “under international law… Australia must accommodate boat arrivals and abandon its campaign of stopping the boats… the Australian government does not possess the valid power…” (The Australian, September 3-4, 2011, p.11)
It is time to pull out from that convention, and from the satanic UN. After writing this I read Janet Albrechtsen, “High Court Gets on its High Horse, flexing Interventionist Muscle”, The Australian, September 7, 2011, p.16. She also defends the idea of an interventionist, politically correct High Court.

But notice her conclusion; “When the government, not the people-smuggling industry, controls the nation’s borders, Australians support higher immigration rates. And that is a most compassionate outcome.”

This further supports the argument being developed at this site that Albrechtsen is not a genuine conservative but, metaphorically, John Howard in a blonde wig. The Australian big business line on mass migration is never questioned, even though it is changing the very nature of Australia.  


CONSERVATIVE SEX IN THE CITY

by James Reed
I take up Ian’s last point about Janet Albrechtsen. Consider the column, “Let’s Not be Tethered by Simple Sexual Stereotypes,” The Australian, August 31, 2011, p.14. This column defends the idea that rough sex is not necessarily rape. It does so by citing by way of introduction the horrible TV-show Sex and the City.
This show involved four middle-class New York women living decadent lives, exploring various sexual oddities each week. Why would a “conservative” cite this show positively? What makes these degenerate characters – Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha – authorities on anything except social decline?

Watch five minutes of an episode and be amazed at the selfishness of these women. Of course we have the same thing in men’s shows like Californication. This entire dialogue is a long way from traditional conservatism. And of course it is not: it is just free market John Howardism in disguise, going places Little John never dreamt of going.  


MONETARY NEWS ALERT FROM AMERICAN MONETARY INSTITUTE

The email headlines (21/9/2011) read: “Major Historic Progress was Made by Congressman Dennis Kuninich”:
“On Wednesday September 21st Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D,Ohio, 10th District) took a crucial and heroic step to resolve our growing financial crisis and achieve a just and sustainable money system for our nation by introducing the National Emergency Employment Defense Act of 2011, abbreviated NEED.
While the bill focuses on our nation's unemployment crisis, the remedy proposed contains all of the essential monetary measures being proposed by the American Monetary Institute in the American Monetary Act. These are what decades of research and centuries of experience have shown to be necessary to end the economic crisis in a just and sustainable way, and place the U.S. money system under our constitutional checks and balances. Yes, it can be done!”

Social crediter Wallace Klinck of Canada responded:
Attention, Stephen Zarlenga, American Monetary Institute. So the Government is obligated "to put the people back to work", eh? Sounds to me like nearly pure fascism or communism--totalitarian systems for which the state objective of "full employment" was the cornerstone policy as must be the case with all totalitarian systems or regimes.
This is the policy of the Antichrist. Any society that requires nearly one-hundred percent of its work-eligible population to be producing goods and services must be a pathetically inefficient, materialistic and uncultured society indeed. In the days of Merry England which is generally considered as a fairly high point in British history I understand the people enjoyed approximately one-hundred and fifty holidays per annum while being able still to provide for their essential needs. But, of course, those were times when the Christian ethic still had some influence amongst the people.

(US) Congressman Kucinich may be sincere but he is fatally flawed in his advocacy for protecting "jobs" and of state provision of "jobs" for the nation. Every engineer worthy of the name is trying to eliminate the need for human intervention in production processes through increased efficiency achieved by refined technology. At the same time virtually every half-baked politician is trying to put the workers displaced through the blessings of technology back into wage-slavery again. And if they have to resort to war in order to accomplish the task they do not hesitate--apparently without moral compunction.

Distribution of product is a different issue which must be realistically separated from incomes derived from money costed through the price-system. The purpose of production is to create desired goods and services with an absolute minimum of input cost of which labour is one--not to create "work.". Making an end of a means is a penultimate sin in Christian thought for the very good and practical reason that it causes major dysfunction, waste and destruction--perverting and denying thereby the real nature and purpose of human existence by stopping up the Abundance of the Kingdom.  


THE JOYS OF CHOCOLATE

by Brian Simpson
Don’t despair – there is some good news. For some time natural health folk have known that chocolate (dark chocolate minus the sugar) contains phytochemicals with multiple health benefits.
Scientists at the European Society of Cardiology Congress have released evidence that chocolate protects against heart attack and stroke. In fact chocolate lowers the risk of heart disease by 40%. (Naturalnews.com, August 30, 2011)
Imagine the heart-burn that that “discovery” will cause the big pharma corporations who have no monopoly on the joys of chocolate.  


THE FAILURE OF THE DEMOCRATIC STATE

by James Reed
Gordon Graham is Regius Professor of Moral Philosophy at the University of Aberdeen and author of "The Case Against the Democratic State", (Imprint Academic, Charlottesville, 2001). This is one of the few books by a contemporary academic challenging not only the legitimacy of the State (“the monopolist of legitimate coercion” p.6) but also democracy itself.
Graham shows that all of the traditional justifications for the State fail. People can organise and pretty much take care of themselves. Social life and organised community existed before the emergence of the State and will continue without it.

As for democracy – well, we really don’t have it through our present system. In fact Graham goes so far as to argue that democracy in the majoritarian form is simply paradoxical. A person P may believe that Britain should adopt the Euro, and that the matter should be decided by referendum. Thus that person P is a majoritarian democrat. But suppose the matter is put to the vote and the Euro proposal is defeated. Then P believes that Britain should adopt the Euro and also that it should not: a contradiction!
Graham concludes: “The paradox of democracy is a real problem for democratic theory in my view and I do not think it has a solution.” (p.30) Graham’s book is full of sharp and insightful reasoning that challenge one of the Establishment’s great sacred cows.  


AFTER THE RESOURCES BOOM: HOLE IN THE GROUND AUSTRALIA

by Brian Simpson
With all the excitement about the resources boom being able to fuel mass Asian immigration to swiftly, or more swiftly, polish off the Anglo-Australian population and culture, I often wonder at the “future” after the resources boom, when Australia is just a hole in the ground. What income governments obtain from resource wealth is just spent with the abandon of an African dictatorship. There is no sense of the need to build a nation, only a manic desire to bring in migrants by the crate-load. Prime agricultural land will be destroyed by Chinese mining companies with the blessing of the Federal and State governments, who live only for the second.

But what if the dire predictions of ecological doom made by ecologists prove true? I don’t mean Bob Brown – I am thinking about scientific papers predicting increased soil loss, water shortages and resource shortages. I know that our side of politics assumes that global climatic change is all bunk because some scientists disagree, and yes, oil company scientists dismiss peak oil as well. But surely on scientific and factual questions, we non-specialists should have an open mind? It could be true and if it is true, then what?

What if Australia pushes its population to 40 million by 2050 just to eliminate Anglo-Australia and then it is found that this population level is unsustainable? Who will take Asian environmental refugees fleeing from a collapsing Australia? If new “crimes against the environment” are in force, will very old pro-growthers (still kept going by technological advances) be put on trial like ageing war criminals are put on trial today?  


CHINA CRASH: THE FRAGILITY OF TECHNOLOGY

by Chris Knight
With the West facing implosion and impending financial collapse, our traitorous new class elites look to China for leadership. These hollow men are like skinny guys at professional wrestling matches, who scoop up handfuls of sweat from the wrestlers to rub on themselves. But China though may have as much reality as a professional wrestling match.

Point to consider: Recently the Beijing-Shanghai bullet train came into operation. But three weeks later the train crashed into another train which had been disabled by a lightning strike. People died and many were injured. The story has been told of cover-ups by the Communist Chinese government. But I am more interested in this tale at the mytho-poetic level, as a symbol of where runaway economic growth and out-of-control technology is leading us. The inevitable crash lies ahead. Future survival depends upon accepting this reality and planning accordingly.  


LETTERS TO THE PRESS

On the constitutional indigenous question
To the Editor of The Age, 23rd September 2011:

On the question of constitutional recognition of our indigenous people, framing the referendum question is not as simple a matter as Brian Sanaghan suggests (23/9). 'Australia' is a European name and the nation of Australia is a recently constituted political entity created by (largely British) Europeans. Thus it is nonsense to state that our indigenous people 'were the first Australians'. Sanaghan's error is a reminder that we should all be wary of well-meaning sentimentalists who wish to change our eminently successful constitution to satisfy some fleeting whim. In any case, it is recognition of indigenous culture that is important; and that is best done by cultural and not constitutional means.

Second Collie coal mine sold, product going overseas?
The Editor, The Australian, 29/9/2011:
Blind faith in global trade is shown by Premier Colin Barnett (Liberal), who said the State Government is not likely to lobby against a Chinese takeover of a WA Collie mine (reported 28/9 and 29/9). And I have not noticed any Federal Labor Party or Greens opposition to Collie Griffin coal's new Indian owners, who refused in May to supply coal to the Collie Bluewater power station. So Federal Labor, too, evidently believes that money, or trade, reigns supreme, and the Greens have gone to sleep.
About 15 or 20 years ago a group called Stop MAI Coalition was campaigning, with the Greens and other reformers, against breaking down the barriers to investment, planned by the Multilateral Agreement on Investment. Stop MAI Coalition, led by Brian Jenkins, warned of the danger to the economic freedom of Australians.
It is obviously not economically sound to refuse to move Collie coal to a Collie power station, which would be forced to bring coal from interstate or overseas. No matter what financial jiggery-pokery goes on, it is Cloud Cuckooland stuff in the real world. I appeal to the National Party, the Greens, and the independents to take steps to stop foreign takeovers and the stoppage of supplies to Australians.
