4 November 2011 Thought for the Week:
The Supreme State, Planning and Scarcity - Extract from 1934 Calgary, Canada speech:
We have no desire whatever if we will analyse what our objective is, to change one master for a still more powerful master. That is one of the greatest dangers at the present time - that large bodies of people will be carried away by words of which they have not analysed the meaning. … The opponents in this matter - we will put it on its lowest terms - can either allow the world to be plunged into another great delirium tremens, another great World War, or the opponents themselves can take steps to change the system… It is coming in many nations, at this particular moment almost under your very eyes... In Great Britain the phrase under which this change is taking place is called Rationalisation or Planning; in Italy as the Fascisti or Corporate State; in Russia it is the Dictatorship of the Proletariat ... and is being aimed at in Germany by the Nazis…
Whether it be by accident or design, the world is steadily moving over from a financial tyranny which has both the elements of breakdown and has also been found out, to another tyranny, a tyranny of administration... the setting up of an entire State which can say, "You shall do so and so". "You shall have such and such rations". "You shall live in such and such a house, you shall work such and such hours". "You shall be taught such and such things". "And any deviation from those laws which we lay down for you will be penalised by either starvation or by all the rigours of the law"…”.
TOWARDS A NEW APPROACH TO INCOME DISTRIBUTION AND ENVIRONMENT SUSTAINABILITY
In their paper “Towards a New Approach to Income Distribution and Environmental Sustainability” Frances Hutchinson and Brian Burkitt, University of Bradford, UK (1999)
The Draft Mining Scheme put forward by Douglas and Orage in 1920 sought to avoid these difficulties by devolving responsibility for finance to industrially based local producers' banks. Such a financial system could create a framework under which ecological sustainability becomes economically viable.
AS FOR THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT AND HIS BANKING CRONIES
Over the last few years the League has written on or featured articles on ‘the derivatives scam’. It is coming more and more to the ‘light of day’ – to the light of truth.
The Messages Are Not Encouraging: Just when you think the Fed cannot possibly get any more reckless or corrupt...
If you are counting on "business as usual" to carry the day you are going to be sorely disappointed. If Europe implodes - and there's little chance it will not - then Bank of America's derivative position will go to sub-zero and if the FDIC is insuring their losses, that will be the end of the FDIC which means every bank deposit in the US will be uninsured overnight after 70 plus years or so of "nothing can ever go wrong" protection.
The message finishes with these words: Note: Forget all the ** ads surrounding this article. Not a single one will help you. (The ads are for financial advice and banking!) Watch Video:
‘OCCUPY WALL STREET’ NOT THE ONLY ‘GAME IN TOWN’
Take your pick. Farmers up-in-arms at the power various government legislated bodies now exercise. What is the issue that most concerns you? I feel sure you will find a group on-line seeking others to join them and fight government charges, bureaucracies, race-hate legislation, you name it. As an example, I just happened to tune in to the debate between “Lock-the-Gate Alliance” and a representative from mining interests in this country. To the credit of the radio presenter, the debate was impartially hosted and he did his best to fit in as many questions and comments by the listeners as the time allotted to the debate allowed for.
Here is democracy in action and worth following up. Spokesman for the Alliance writes:
RESOURCE WEALTH SHOULD DELIVER BENEFITS TO REGIONS:
Senator Barnaby Joyce’s article appeared in the Canberra Times 6/10/2011:
One of the world's first billionaires, J. Paul Getty, once remarked that "the meek shall inherit the Earth, but not its mineral rights." I find this incongruous coming from a famous industrialist and philanthropist who was a resident in a country where generally the contrary is the case.
Australia, in contrast, has variant forms of ownership between the land title and the mineral rights.
In America private landowners retain the rights to the shale gas on their property. In Louisiana, gas companies recently paid a local church $27 million just for the rights to drill on parish land. Real estate agent Mike Smith was paid $1.3 million for the right to drill on his 300 acres and a 25 per cent royalty. There are around 1 million private owners of mineral rights in America, accruing $21.5 billion in royalty payments each year.
Lately I have found that my involvement in trying to get a better deal for farmers has become slightly more personal with exploration rights being granted over my land. My incentive to swim is extenuated by being dropped in the CSG ocean. If more of this enormous opportunity goes to local landowners, then that money will stay in the town and help develop the town. That money will be spun around the local economy, driving development and spreading further opportunity.
In 1930, the discovery of the East Texas Field and much of this wealth accrued to ordinary Texans. Some, like the Clampetts, may have left for Beverly Hills, but many stayed. Dallas, once a backwater, boomed. The University of Texas is now in the top 50 universities in the world, a higher ranking than any in Australia. From the desert, Houston emerged to be the fourth biggest city in America.
There are many in Australia that are disdainfully dismissive that we can develop anything away from the Harbour in Sydney. I find this lack of vision restrictive and in some instances noxious. The wealth that is apparent from the current minerals boom should be instrumental in developing new parts of Australia.
You never hear them talk about delivering the royalties back to the regions from which they emanated.
You never hear them talk about developing new population centres in the north, or more central parts of Australia. You do hear about the minerals wealth of the mining boom building a new electrified rail line from Chatswood to Parramatta, or a new airport at Perth.
WE THE PEOPLE … OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA
by Betty Luks
Taken from “I.P.A. Facts”, February-March, 1968, Vol. 17, No. 2, an organ
of The Institute of Public Affairs, Melbourne, the following facts speak for themselves (in dollar terms). During the Second World War
(1939-1945) the enormous productive capacity - real credit
- expended on the war and measured in financial terms
would have provided:
• a $24,000 house : • $8,000 furniture : • $40,000 cash : for EVERY family in the U.S.A., Canada, Britain, Australia,
Iceland, France, Germany, the Soviet Union and Belgium.
The League accepts the Christian view that
all systems exist to serve the individual, and that a competitive, free enterprise
system is not only the most efficient way to produce the individual's requirements, but to ensure that the threat of totalitarianism is averted by effective
decentralisation of power.
Gentle reader have you ever thought about the obscene waste of the earth’s resources on the part of the world’s elite in their push for world control?
The Cultural Heritage is an Asset belonging to the entire nation:
I thought of the glowing reports and eulogies found in the mainline media at the sad death of Mr. Steve Jobs of Apple fame. While the man had an exceptional mind and helped design some amazing products, he also drew on the cultural heritage that belongs to all Americans – he was not a ‘self-made’ man. He didn’t have to build factories, roads, planes, etc., in order to distribute the products his company produced. Apple used the infrastructure built up over many years and built by the generations who came before him.
In considering our Wealth as a nation we must include as a very important part - the great cultural heritage that has been handed down to us by our forefathers. The rich natural resources, the farms and factories would be of little use and could never have evolved were it not for the organised scientific knowledge bequeathed to us by our ancestors. This part of our wealth is an asset belonging to the entire nation.
The modern economic production system is not a system of individual production and exchange of production between individuals. It is more and more the synthetic assembly, in a central pool, of wealth consisting of goods and services which are more and more due to the use of power, to modern scientific processes and all sorts of organisations.
The real wealth of any person, or of any nation, may be measured by his or its ability to deliver wanted goods and services where and when required.
CHICK MAGNETS? BULLET MAGNETS!
by James Reed
Australian soldiers in Afghanistan have themselves said that having women soldiers could lead to the Taliban (who have a “woman problem”) attacking harder and trying to kill or capture females. But Defence Minister Stephen Smith has responded that the “historic change” of women on the frontline “shouldn’t be viewed through the prism of one particular conflict or one particular mission.” Let us remember those words as the first dead female Australian soldier arrives home in a body bag.
WE ARE AGAINST “NEO-LIBERAL ECONOMICS”: LOOK IT UP !
by James Reed
Normally I would oppose these sorts of people, but for once they have touched on the issues of real concern, one which has been central to the social credit movement as well, the ruthless greed of global capitalism.
What would the mainline media prefer: the fire bombs being thrown in Greece? At present, most of the violence in New York seems to be done by the police, freely dispersing pepper spray, perhaps in the mistaken belief that peppered ‘pinkos’ taste better to hungry, angry, gaol-inmates, than merely unwashed ones!
WHIMPING OUT OVER BOLT
by Ian Wilson LL.B.
May I suggest that some journalist rewrite totally the Bolt articles (the articles themselves may not be republished, but this does not prevent a new article expressing the same theme being published). Do a fine job on this – no, factual mistakes. No errors. Spend the time to get everything right. Then publish in good faith, the new articles. Let’s see what happens then. In the meantime, a movement for repealing the race-hate laws is needed. Get Tony Rabbit to do something.
