A BLESSED AND HOLY CHRISTMASS/NEW YEAR
Peace on Earth To Men of Good Will
The Canon of Right(eous)ness: The canon is a spiritual thing and the forms embodying it are of infinite variety. I am confident that just as departure from the canon has produced the appalling condition of the world at the present time, so the existence of a growing body of people who are aware of the situation, and singly devoted to bringing back understanding into realtionship with Reality, constitutes not only the great, but the only certainty that eventually a world system founded upon lies will give way to one which is formed on Truth.

WHY THERE IS HOPE EVEN IN THE DARKEST OF TIMES
by James Reed
The Christian message through the birth and death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, is one about ultimate victory over the forces of darkness, degeneracy and death. At the end of the great epic movie of human existence, the bad guys lose. It doesn’t mean that there will be no suffering, before that, or that the forces of darkness will not win local, but not lasting victories. It does mean that all their evil visions of communism, “one world”, a “New World Order” and the like, will not succeed. In time these grand ideas will be but dust in the wind, the erosion of mind. These goals are perversions of human nature and reality.
THINKING SCIENTIFICALLY ABOUT HOPE AND OUR PLIGHT
by Brian Simpson
One critic says: “I have little patience with these faithless and despairing predictions and prognostications of gloom, inexorable degradation and inevitable destruction”. If events are “undesirable” then fix them. Do this by replacing or circumventing “the existing organs of misinformation” and “dehypnotize” the people. Educate them about Social Credit. Without an alternative financial system “there can be, and will be, no effective remedy for the ultimate destruction of civilization”.
I agree in general with all of this. As I pointed out in my review of Faye, his failure to consider the flawed nature of the financial system is a major fault in his book. However, there are deeper issues for debate within the social credit family. Correcting the misinformation issue means dealing with the brainwashed effects of the Establishment media. De-hypnotizing the masses presupposes that one has the mechanism, the “army” and man-power to do this.
Thinking scientifically, hope is really about force. Think of our battle as a fight between two forces. In any battle we require full information, however grim, because planning and strategy requires it. Dismissing “bad news” out of hand merely because it doesn’t make the troops “happy, happy, happy” is a way of ensuring defeat. Worse than gloom is false optimism: just look at military history. Further, reporting “bad news” even about the demise of industrial civilisation, that the machine will stop, is not necessarily about fatalistic acceptance of doom. Doom, yes, if this techno-industrial world is everything, but doom, no, if there is an alternative that can be built. In human terms, industrialism has only been a small fraction of our history.
Finally, de-hypnotizing the masses requires a mass movement of people to actively get out there and win the war, soul-by-soul, similar to evangelical movements. More is required than just putting great literature on the over-crowded internet and hoping people know where to look. It also assumes that the sheeple are not too dumbed down to understand. Hopefully 0.05% retain an active brain and with hard work we may be able to reach them. If we can, we have “hope”. But if not, then maybe even Faye is too optimistic.
In the worst case scenario, that we are truly finished, then as a movement of truth, we should at least openly debate this and have the guts to face whatever Reality throws at us. My opinion is that at this point of time we simply “don’t know” - but we should fight on as if life itself is at stake. (Spoiler alert – it is!)
WORK IS A MEANS TO AN END – NOT AN END IN ITSELF
It seems as though the ‘penny is finally dropping’. Machines, technology and automation have taken over from human labour – and finally people are waking up to the fact. It has only taken them a hundred years to wake up – but still, better late than never. In the article below Matthew C. Klein discusses the implications – even though he finds it hard to get his mind around the concept. Most Americans do. They have grown up with the Puritan work ethic instilled into their thinking.
Wallace Klinck wrote on the Puritan ethic
My friend Oran Johnson has given “monetary reform” seminars for years and some university students have come to hear what “nonsense” he was spouting. One of them, a senior student or perhaps an instructor, obviously convinced of his own elevated intellect, was clearly not pleased with what he was hearing. He started to criticize until I told him Social Credit was not supportive of work for its own sake and advocated for increased leisure rather than “full-employment”.
It is the old Puritanical philosophy again which seems to have such a destructive strangle-hold on society at large—not least at the “top”. They are all slaves to Works and have never conceived Life. But then, increased leisure for individuals would deal a deadly blow to the centralization of power.
WHY WORK IF A MACHINE TAKES YOUR JOB?
Matthew C. Klein of Bloomberg, writes 12 Nov. 20l 3:
Yet you have to wonder if that's quite right. Is it possible that machines and trade might eventually polarize the rich world's labour force into two distinct classes: servants and elites? If we want to prevent that, we may need to reconsider how we think about work and income in an age of abundance.
You might brush this off as a consequence of the recent recession, but it fits into an alarming trend that began about 25 years ago. According to recent research by the World Bank, members of the global upper-middle class (in practice, the middle-class in developed countries) were the only people who missed out on substantial real income gains from 1988 through 2008. Trade and mechanization obliterated well-paying manufacturing jobs, and the health-care and education jobs that replaced them paid much less.
Economists have found that there was basically no net job creation between 1990 and 2008 in
those parts of the U.S. economy subject to foreign competition. The growth that did occur in
the period was in finance, government, health care and education -— sectors where it's difficult to measure productivity, or where productivity is very low.
Consider that, in the not-too-distant future, we may not need very many people to produce
most physical goods. Manufacturing employment has been in decline almost everywhere
thanks to the rise of the machines. Even in China, the share of people working in factories
seems to have been in decline since the mid-1990s.
COMPLETE CORRUPTION OF THE CULTURE…
“Tax Havens, the Euro Dollar and ‘They’ Who Own the World”
Due to the secrecy and light regulation surrounding the Eurodollar market, based in London, an extraordinary situation has unfolded where the Euromarket, which has no physical embodiment in an exchange, is now the largest source of capital in the world. This state of affairs has developed because dollars held in “banks” overseas (i.e. Eurodollars) form the basis of new bank credit. This credit is issued with untold leverage due to no formal reserve requirement and little or no regulation. The fact that this “market” is based at the Corporation of London (otherwise known as “The City”) is one reason why this financial powerhouse is beginning to eclipse New York as the financial centre of the 21st. century.
The growth of the Eurodollar market has been further supported by the birth of Eurobonds. These instruments are in the main unregulated offshore bearer bonds. No record is kept of who owns them so they are perfect for tax evasion. Thus it is no shock to discover a great source of funds to the Eurobond market comes from The Isle of Man, Jersey, Guernsey, Malta, Cyprus, The Cayman Islands, Barbados, Bermuda, The Virgin Islands, Gibraltar, Monte Carlo, Lichtenstein, Luxembourg, the IFSC Dublin, Hong Kong, Panama and of course, the daddy of them all, Switzerland. These tax havens are all linked to “The City” by a myriad of interconnected accountants, lawyers, financial advisors, consultants and “boutique” banks where secrecy is paramount. It is estimated that wealthy individuals and multinational corporations hold more than 18 trillion dollars (that’s trillion with a capital “T”) “offshore” in these “tax havens”. (The rest is held in "custodial banks" where total wealth under management is circa 120 Trillion dollars).
As a result the Eurodollar has become a new form of money (if by money one means unregulated credit) and had exploded in size. By 1997 nearly 90% of all international loans were in this market. Today it has grown so large that the Bank of International Settlements has ceased to measure it independently because the scale of the "problem" was becoming an embarrassment.
The part the Eurodollar market has played in the Global financial collapse has not been fully analyzed or documented to date. I think such an analysis is long overdue. Our monetary system needs to be brought back to a solid steady state where economic value means solid capital investment. True "economic investment" creates real added value, real employment and real benefits for ordinary citizens and society. The current investment orthodoxy is based on a "smoke and mirror" paradigm that is hollowing out our national economies and if it is allowed to continue it will ensure the "system" will finally collapse under the weight of its cant, hypocrisy and sophistry.

FIRST TO COLONISE THE AMERICAS BEFORE CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS?
This snippet of news from The Independent 20 November 2013 sparked my interest:
The report continues:
Part of the child’s DNA sequence is shared only with the DNA of modern-day native Americans, and not with modern-day East Asians, indicating that a group of long-gone Siberians must have played a key role in colonising the Americas. The child lived at the Stone Age site of Mal’ta in south-central Siberia, near Lake Baikal. The bones are kept in the Hermitage State Museum in St Petersburg, along with Venus figurines excavated from the region, which are also found at similar sites as far away as Europe.
“When we sequenced this child’s genome something very strange appeared namely that this individual seems to be consisting of western Eurasians on one side and native Americans on the other side,” said Eske Willerslev of the Natural History Museum of Denmark, who led the study published in the journal Nature.
The conventional view of how America was first colonised suggested that East Asians had migrated across a land bridge from eastern Siberia to Alaska at the time when sea levels were much lower. This was backed up by a genetic similarity between modern native Americans and East Asians. “There had been gene flow from this Mal’ta population into those East Asians that were the ancestors of native Americans. So basically native Americans are composed of meeting of two populations, a group of East Asians and this Mal’ta western Eurasians,” Professor Willerslev said. “It could have happened in the Old World, somewhere in Siberia obviously. But it could also have happened in the New World,” he said.
However, there are rival theories based on the idea that ancient western Europeans could have crossed the ice-fringed Atlantic by boat or that Melanesians could have sailed across the Pacific to South America, and then migrated across Central America to colonise North America.
Ancient Trade Routes
Eurasian Trade: The commercial links which bound the ancient world were both extensive and sophisticated. Self-sustaining individual networks – the Saharan caravans, the Arab dhows plying the Indian Ocean, the fleets of Chinese junks coasting East Asia, and most famously the Silk Road traversing Central Asia, linked at entrepots such as Alexandria or Ctesiphon to form a truly intercontinental trading system. Let’s consider this news of European-native-American ancestry to Ancient Trading - we will link that semi-precious stone Lapis Lazuli to that trading.
Wikipedia tells us: “Lapis lazuli is found in limestone in the Kokcha River valley of Badakhshan province in northeastern Afghanistan, where the Sar-e-Sang mine deposits have been worked for more than 6,000 years… In addition to the Afghan deposits, lapis is also extracted in the Andes (near Ovalle, Chile); and to the west of Lake Baikal in Siberia, Russia, at the Tultui Lazurite deposit…”
In “Programme for the Third World War “ by C.H. Douglas, the matter of ancient trading-links and the Money Power’s very extensive ‘intelligence” is discussed in relation to the early plans for America. Most Americans will be surprised the Money Power had plans for them so long ago. (Keep persevering you will come to see what I am leading up to.)
Programme for the Third World War – April-August 1943:
Which brings us to Columbus and the ‘discovery’ of America
There are, however, certain features in regard to the rediscovery of America which are worth attention. Christopher Columbus was a Jew, and John Cabot, although his ship and crew were English, was a Venetian. But the extraordinary and significant fact is that there was in Bristol at that time a secret Jewish community 'who handed on their tradition by word of mouth' (Lord Melchett: “Thy Neighbour”, p. 90).
It is obvious that both Columbus and Cabot had information of a fairly definite character to guide them. Both of them set a compass course which was approximately correct. And both of them had connections with banking - Columbus with Jewish banking, and Cabot with the banking City-State of Venice, and almost certainly with this secret Bristol Jewry. The essence of banking has always been what in military circles is called "intelligence" - information in its widest sense, spying being an important component, and it seems highly probable that the existence of the American continent was known in banking circles when it was quite unknown outside them. If this was so, it is reasonable to assume that when action was taken in regard to this knowledge it was considered action. Quite a different type of individual is required to pioneer a new country from that required to develop it subsequently; and it is not without significance also that the original British settlers were followed by a wave of Dutch, who for the most part remained on the Atlantic seaboard as traders and bankers.
One of the real effects of the American War of Independence was that although a façade of the original settlers of British stock held most of the titular offices of Government, the control of development and policy rapidly passed to a tiny Dutch minority (not to be confused with the much larger German element frequently called Dutch in the United States by a corruption of the word Deutsch). Such names as Rooseveldt, Astor, Vanderbilt, Van Ranselaer, Van Cortlandt, etc., immediately occur to anyone in this connection. The Dutch were the Chosen Instrument of Finance.
Life, Liberty and er…Happiness? No… it was Property!
Perfect example of aristocratic abstractionist
Perhaps the most indisputable evidence that I am not unduly fanciful in this matter is provided by the Great Seal of the United States, which was the work of Jefferson, John Adams, and Benjamin Franklin, all Freemasons, the obverse of which consists of a truncated pyramid, with the headstone bearing a picture of the All-Seeing Eye, the symbol of Freemasonry, suspended above the Pyramid. The motto is "annuit coeptis" - "he prospers our origins."
In 1935, a year which probably marked the disappearance of any real prospect of peace, the Secretary of the U.S. Treasury announced that in future the obverse of the Great Seal would be printed on the back of all U.S. paper money.
Whether leading American statesmen understand the situation is also not plain. I rather doubt it. But that there is a small inner ring which does, I am confident. I have met at least one of them. One of our nineteenth century statesmen begged Englishmen to cultivate the habit of studying large maps. With a world war on our hands, we require above most other things, to realise that evil designs can be, and are, built up from innocuous components, and in consequence, short views of history may be very deceptive…”
And gentle reader, Clifford Hugh Douglas wrote that seventy years ago! Look at America today. It would seem America has served its purpose and will ‘fade from history’ if the Planners have their way, and China is now billed to play a starring role…. And all of the preceding was sparked by an interest in the news of a genetic link between pre-Columbus western Eurasians on one side and native Americans on the other! Read further here....

THE MACHINE STOPS Series
by Arnis Luks
Adam Voysey’s recent lecture made mention of black molasses being added to the garden as inoculants, with additional benefits to humans as pre-biotic to feed the good bugs in our stomach. Companion planting has also long been known as beneficial for plants, but further, that herbs, good bugs and bug feeding is incrementally good for those humans who consume the produce. There is an increment of association for all life, if correctly tended in accordance with God’s natural laws.
The machine failing has caused us to look differently at our world and from this we have rediscovered HIS abundance is there should we have eyes to see and ears to hear. This gives new meaning to the parable of the two fishes and five loaves of bread. Jesus demonstrated in quick time what God does every day for us in ordinary time. If we have two live fish and they are well tended and fed they will increase to a sufficient number to feed five thousand, the same for the heads of grain as for five loaves of bread.
Matthew 14:18-20: And he said, “Bring them here to me.” Then he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass; and taking the five loaves and the two fish he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. And they all ate and were satisfied. And they took up twelve baskets full of the broken pieces left over.
LETTER TO THE PRESS
To the Editor of The Australian, 2nd December 2013.
What kind of a Trojan horse is this campaign for 'constitutional recognition' of 'the original inhabitants of our country'? Ben Wyatt's case ('Another step to reconciliation', 2/12) is a collection of sentimental pleadings which does not contain one single reason of substance to justify such an inequitable and racist tampering with the Constitution. No sub-section of the Australian people should receive privileged mention and affirmation in this document.
