DO IT YOURSELF ACTION KIT - NOW IS THE TIME – TO TAKE ACTION!
Made in Australia Campaign
Voters will be delighted to promote candidates who give a positive commitment. An easy to use, ready-made letter and questionnaire has been prepared for voters to use in their electorate. It only requires voters to add their address, sign the letter and post it to the candidates. Not all candidates are known at this stage but at least the sitting Member is likely to nominate again, so he/she could be contacted now.
Three questions included in the questionnaire cover:
These issues are very topical which provides an excellent opportunity to get the candidates’ commitment. The message from the League has always been to have the MP’s be responsible to the voters. The only way to get them to do so, is to clearly get their commitment on issues of concern.
Make use of this worthwhile campaign. or from K Grundy, Box 177, Naracoorte SA 5271
SQUANDERING PAGES OF WORDS BUT IGNORING REAL AGENDA
“White Paper Critics are questioning how the Federal Government plans to i mplement its Asian Century white paper, particularly whether there are enough teachers and diplomats to fill the roles required. The white paper, released on Sunday, outlines 25 major objectives - all aimed at building stronger ties with Asia.” Source: ABC online.
Reams and reams of newspaper, hours and hours of radio and internet time have been squandered on Julia Gillard’s ‘white paper’, but no one has got to the core of the real agenda behind it all. Further reading.... The Monopolistic Idea by C.H. Douglas
SOME RECENT GLOBAL KITE-FLYING?
by Betty Luks
Separating Money from Credit: Upon reading The Privateer’s late October, Number 715 article headed, “Separating Money from Credit”, my interest was sparked. It seems the ‘money industry’ is humming with the proposal that all government debt should be cancelled and the mainline media is openly discussing the fact that banks create credit!
No doubt about it, what was untrue yesterday is true today. I would like an apology from every politician, businessman and media personality who, over the last fifty or so years, sneeringly wrote or spoke of the Australian League of Rights’ ‘funny money’ claims. They were and are liars, liars, liars! They have betrayed their nation, their people, and any values they might have had before they entered politics, commerce, trade and/or journalism.
Now that I have got that off my chest, I feel, as I imagine Charles Dickins’ character, Mr. Pickwick of “Pickwick Papers” felt, after he publicly called some shonky lawyers robbers, robbers, robbers! A portion of the article reads:
The First Trial Balloon
The Second Trial Balloon: The Chicago Plan Revisited
The inspiration for Mr Snyder’s exceedingly loaded question comes courtesy of an August 2012 IMF “working paper” titled “The Chicago Plan Revisited”. According to Mr Snyder, this IMF paper by Jaromir Benes and Michael Kumhof is making waves in economic circles all over the world…
How did these two IMF stalwarts “find support for Fisher’s claims”? They did it in the way that economic circles find support for anything these days. They used a computer program called a Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) model and fed it into their computers. Alas, Mr Fisher had no such facilities in his day so he couldn’t “prove” his thesis.
Our modern economic “researchers” have no such handicaps. Entitled "The Chicago Plan Revisited", it revives the scheme first put forward by professors Henry Simons and Irving Fisher in 1936 during the ferment of creative thinking in the late Depression.
DEBT-BASED MONEY SYSTEM HAS FAILED SAY ‘THE EXPERTS’
The ‘money industry’ is now saying that the debt-based capitalist money system has failed – not because it is based on issuing never-ending debt, by a private concern at that, but because the system is now too decentralised.
Will central banks cancel government debt?
But in this technologically-automated money-economy age, huge sections of the populations live in sprawling gigantic cities and are utterly dependent on the controlled systems for their food and the means to have access to it. Why the whole system is much like a tap that can be turned on and off by the controllers. They continually do it through the present financial system; inflation and deflation are but mechanisms and issuing bank-created credit-debt-money being the main mechanism.

AUSTRALIANS NOT ACTING ALONE ON ‘CLIMATE’ CHANGE? SURE AREN’T!
“Australia is not alone among nations in acting to combat climate change but the global policy response remains "way behind" what the science demands. UN Framework Convention on Climate Change executive secretary Christiana Figeures said it was "not all doom and gloom" on the climate front, despite the failure of the 2009 Copenhagen Summit to forge a new global consensus. (Paul Maley in The Australian, 25 October 2012)
He continues, “Ms Figeures said it was a mistake to argue Australia was legislating to price carbon at a time when the rest of the world was retreating from expensive carbon-mitigation strategies. "Nothing could be further from reality," told an audience at Sydney's Lowy Institute for International Policy.
"But it is buttressed by regulation both on the power sector and the transportation sector. Every one of Australia's top trading partners has something already in place." Still, despite the emerging global will to act on climate change, Australia's carbon pricing legislation made it a leader the field. "Australia is a major player and an emerging leader," she said…” (emphasis added…ed) Further reading: "Carbon Currency Future" in New Times Survey section

“THIS TECHNOCRACY” from “C. H. Douglas Speaks, 1933”
First published in The New Age, and reprinted in 1933 by the Douglas Social Credit Association, Sydney NSW. It was important for the ‘man in the street’ to grasp who was behind the push to promote the philosophy behind this Technocracy group in the 1930s just as it is imperative that ‘the man in the street’, nearly eighty years later, grasps who and what is behind this latest push. Douglas writes:
“IT is a dreadful thing to have a suspicious mind. During the past few weeks perhaps the main feature in the press of the United States and Great Britain has been the discovery of the findings of an American organisation operating under the name of “Technocracy”. The subject has been featured in every London daily of large circulation, not excluding the Times, while the press of the United States has, with a rapidity of apprehension which can only be described as remarkable, announced that the problem of the depression has now been solved, and that by a curious coincidence the defeat of Mr. Hoover will be practically contemporaneous with the return of prosperity. We have not yet had a series of addresses from the B.B.C. on the subject, but they will come.
Unfortunately, I seem to remember the same unanimity when that friend of the people, Viscount Snowden, put up his marvellous fight to save this country a problematical £2,400,000, or 1/400th of the American Debt, at the expense of France, while under cover of the noise which was thereby created the Bank of International Settlements was founded and endowed with powers which might easily determine the future of civilisation. It is true that the plan seems to have miscarried a little, but you can see the idea.
Now, stripped of what is locally called in the Land of the Free “Ballyhoo,” what does Technocracy amount to in regard to fact, as distinct from policy. It has put forward in a dramatic form a number of statistics tending to prove that the rate of production per man-hour is a function of the mechanical power which is employed in production, and that this factor, combined with mechanical invention, organisation and other factors, has now enabled a small and diminishing portion of the available labour to produce everything required for a high standard of living, not only for the actual workers, but for the increasingly unemployed section of the population.
The data it has put forward is interesting, useful, and, I should imagine, in the main, incontrovertible; but it does not tell us anything which has not been a commonplace both to the engineer and to, in particular, the readers of this review. Over and above this, the technocrats have pointed out, also in a dramatic form, that this immensely accelerated production has not been brought by the general population, but has resulted, on the contrary, in a piling up of debt in the United States alone of approximately 218,000,000,000 dollars, representing unpaid for production. We have been saying so in this review for fourteen years, and have been endeavouring to explain exactly how this debt was piled up, and what would be the result of it.
Now, sound and incontrovertible as these facts are, they are not new, and they are by no means either novel or, in the main, attractive to those financial interests who control the press of Europe and America. How is it, then, that they have suddenly become “popular,” and have obviously not only passed for publication, but have been included in the high policy which regards publicity as one of its tools.
In the first place, we have to remember that the knowledge of the increasing productivity of industry and the recognition that the world is starving in the midst of plenty has become, in spite of efforts to conceal and distort the fact, very widely recognised. To attempt for much longer to deny the facts of the situation would be still further to discredit those in control of policy, and it is increasingly recognised that those in control of policy are, in the main, financiers. The problem, therefore, is to use these facts to obtain an organisation which will still leave the present controllers of policy in the position which they regard as being vital. It is not the money system as such which is regarded as essential; it is the power and control which have been given to these financial dictators which is regarded as essential.
Now, as distinct from the facts, it is clear enough that the policy of Technocracy is syndicalist, and in essence does not differ very widely in its ultimate meaning from the policy associated with Fascism, the centralised industry of Russia, or the rationalisation which is the Bank of England’s particular brand of industrial reorganisation in Great Britain. (emphasis added…ed)
It is to be noted that it is more or less sponsored by Columbia University, the home of Doctor Nicholas Murray Butler, the financiers, and more particularly the Jewish financiers' University of New York. The wide publicity given to its findings coincides with the success of Colonel House in electing a democratic President, Mr. Roosevelt, who is surrounded, and whose policy is beyond question, dictated by the group which surrounded President Wilson, notably Mr. Bernard Baruch, Mr. Newton D. Baker, Colonel House himself, and Mr. Al. Smith, now editor of the New Outlook, in whose November issue Mr. Wayne Parrish writes on Technocracy, Mr. Al. Smith on “The New Outlook,” and Mr. Newton Baker writes on “Human Factors in a Depression”.
Under these conditions, while accepting gratefully the data both in regard to production and in regard to finance, which have been provided by this organisation, with whose progenitors I was already in touch in 1919 in New York, I think great caution is required in accepting the deductions which appear to be being put forward in their name as to the form of organisation which is indicated by this data. We have already had a Technocracy in this country and in the U.S.A. between the years 1916 and 1918. It is the best organisation for war. And you will remember that Mr. Bernard Baruch was the most powerful and important man in the United States during the war.”

* Book-- “The Tree of Life” by H.J. Massingham. $30.00 + postage. Massingham documents the clash between the Doctrine of Creation and the Doctrine of Progress from Biblical and classical times, through Shakespeare and on to WWII, during which this book was first published. Drawing upon his extensive scholarship in theology, poetry, literature, politics, the arts, folk-culture and economics, Massingham opens up fresh dimensions on the traditionalist relationship between the English people and their countryside. His practical perspective can be shared by indigenous farmers across the world as they continue to struggle against the blind forces of globalised finance.

All things taken into account, people need to seriously consider home schooling. As for the universities, consider a trade or do some science. Keep your children away from the Humanities and the Social Sciences. That is, if the universities in Australia even survive.
The Death Throes of the University
This is optimistic. Globalisation and information technology will close Australia’s universities as physical institutions. Everything they do now can be done online to India. In a way it is ironic that the universities, which by their very name lived by cosmopolitanism, globalism and universalism, will die the same way.
THE CASE OF THE MISSING WOMEN
by Vera West
This battle is not an easy one, and is not socially acceptable. It is more like a traditional war than politics. So, rather than asking where all the women are, the real question is, where are all the warriors – men with guts! It is time to man-up, not woman-down! Be men for God’s sake and do something!
Antas goes on to say that women are not all that Left-wing. Well the sociological literature contradicts this: there is a stronger tendency for women to support left-wing causes, statistically, than men. Women are conservative in the sense that they hate ostracism, to be seen as supporting non-politically correct = Establishment, causes.
WHY I AM PROUD TO BE A MISOGY – WHY I CAN’T EVEN SPELL IT!
By Uncle Len the eternally unemployed. Once upon a time “misogyny” a word with too many “y’s”, meant “hatred of women”. “Racism” meant “hatred of difference races”. It was assumed to be irrational to do so, to be hating without a basis in reason. Thus Schopenhauer’s famous “On Women” (oh, don’t be impressed, I looked it up) gave a critique of women which feminists later saw as the essence of misogyny. What I could understand of it made sense to me – and gee, I’ve got mental health issues and about half a functioning brain.
Now the term “misogyny” has been changed by the new class to mean “any criticism of anything that we can use in the gender wars”. Thus old Tony Rabbit (as James calls him) got a cuff over the ears by Gillard, et, al., after his allusion to Gillard’s childlessness in the pram debate. Never mind that the cut in the baby bonus discriminates against mother-care over institutionalised childcare. For the media, any criticism of Gillard as a woman is evil. But she deserves criticism, especially for her embrace of Leftism and all it entails. Abbott, if he was manly would go on the attack, but he won’t. He just quivers in fear of the feminist thought police. Man-up Mr Rabbit!
Today was something to do with cancer. I was in the city hoping to beg money for food when a young woman asked me for money! The cheek of it! I told her that I was a dispossessed Anglo Saxon, also male, and just like my race, wanted to be left alone to die. This brought out the gloating feminist in her and she sneered at me. I responded in anger and said: “The epidemic in cancer is caused by childlessness and abortions. I bet you Leftoids have done your bit for cancer.” I’m a misogynist and proud of it! Go on, take my job away – I dare you! (Len the (ex) cleaner sounds very bitter doesn’t he?...ed)
