THE TREE OF LIFE
by Chris Knight
The decline of genuine Christianity embracing the countryside as God’s great earth is in tandem with the other “dual tragedy” of the mechanisation of nature, and the marginalisation of leisure in favour of relentless work. A true religious philosophy should strive to conserve the earth as a source of real wealth rather than the artificial wealth of industrialism. Thus, for Massingham, the real battle of the future, which is our present, is not between Left and Right, but between economic materialism (globalism) and an organic view of life based on the land. The quest should be to rediscover English traditions through the “Doctrine of Creation”, a Christianised, organic rebirth of life. This can be done in three ways. First, it is time to learn from experience about the illusions of progress given by industrialism. If we haven’t seen ample evidence of this by today, we never will. Second there is a need to dig the depths of Englishness to recreate English traditions. Today, with mass migration that Massingham never saw, this is the battle of the century. Finally there is a need for the recreation of alternatives to modernity, such as the Christian “Doctrine of Creation”. However local self government and self reliance are important forces in opposing centralisation.
I noticed only a passing reference to the social dividend (pps.144, 152) which the author endorsed but with qualification. Embracing in full social credit would have strengthened his case. “The Tree of Life” for all its beauty of writing, cries out for reference to C.H. Douglas.
THE SAVAGE FRONTIER AND THE MUCH NEEDED FIRST PERSON’S DEBATE
by Peter West
One book actionists should examine as background reading is Rodney Liddell’s “Cape York: The Savage Frontier” (3rd edition 2010, first edition, 1996). This book is directly relevant to the question of Aborigines as a first people, because it sets out to show that the original indigenous Australians were Papuans who were exterminated long before whites came to Australia. In fact the first contact between whites and Aborigines was in 1606 when a sailor from the Dutch ship “Duyfken” was killed at Cape York by Aborigines. (p.iv)
This is a “gripping” book, telling the story of such encounters, especially on the “savage frontier” of Cape York. I do not want to spoil this for you, but I will comment on Chapter 1 “The Aboriginal Invasion of Australia,” which is directly relevant to the coming Constitutional threat. Liddell presents the case that the original inhabitants of Australia were Papuans who had come down from New Guinea when both countries were connected by land bridges due to the lower sea levels. The Tasmanian aborigines were some of the last of this race who were clearly distinct from the race that Captain Cook confronted in 1770.
Liddell believes that much of this evidence has been censored or ignored by academic anthropologists, whom he has a low opinion of. He goes back to the literature before the age of political correctness, such as the 1930 book “Artists in Strings” written by acclaimed anthropologist Alfred Cort Haddon’s daughter, Kathleen Haddon. She said: “Long headed, broad nosed people of ‘Pre-Dravidian’ stock, they are connected racially with the ‘Veddah’ and certain jungle tribes of South Indian, rather than the neighbouring Papuans and Melanesians. These ‘Pre-Dravidians’ appear to have displaced an earlier woolly haired people, who had come into Australia via New Guinea and who survived until recent times only in Tasmania.” (p.1)
Professor Haddon in 1909 in his book “The Races of Man” also stated that the aborigines/Pre-Dravidians had “exterminated” the previous Papuans or Negritos, but the formation of Bass Strait had prevented the Pre-Dravidians entering into Tasmania. Liddell quotes other early anthropological authorities such as A.P. Elkin and E.R. Gribble. He also quotes English navigator William Dampier, who in 1688 and 1699-1700 had visited Northern Australia and described the natives as having “Hair curled like the Negroes.”
Liddell says that there are rock engravings said to have been done by aborigines centuries ago which portray sailing ships! One such engraving at Hook Island in the Whitsunday Islands, Queensland was actually done by sons of a fisherman in 1963 and Liddell interviewed two of the witnesses. (p.6) All of this material in just six pages of the book! In conclusion, books such as “Cape York: The Savage Frontier” have an important role to play in reviving “censored history” and the facts that have been forced down the memory hole
ENERGY AND THE WEALTH OF NATIONS
by James Reed
SUBMISSIONS ON PROPOSED REFORMS RACIAL DISCRIMINATION ACT
Submissions may be made up to 30 April at email@example.com Racial Discrimination Act
Proposed Reforms announced on 25 March 2014 Submission by Nigel Jackson
ONE The Government is correct to state that laws which are designed to prohibit racial vilification should not be used as a vehicle to attack legitimate freedoms of speech. Such wrongdoing has occurred in overseas nations. Australia, if it wishes to remain a free nation, should ensure that it does not happen here.
TWO The amendments to the Act should contain a specific statement that the principle of free speech takes precedence over the principle of protection from racial vilification. This is because free speech is an essential bulwark against tyranny. Tyranny is a much greater danger to human welfare than racial vilification.
THREE If the term ‘racism’ is used, it should be carefully defined. Not all discrimination based on race or ethnicity is unjust or not in accord with truth.
FOUR The existing protection against intimidation should not be preserved in this Act. There is adequate protection against intimidation and menace elsewhere in Australian law. To retain the protection in this Act might facilitate needless and unjust legal action against a person or persons by those for whom, as it were, campaigning against racial vilification has become a religion.
FIVE I believe that the new protection against vilification should NOT be included in the amendments. This is because the phrase ‘incite hatred against’ is too subjective a criterion on which to found just law. It is also true that, from as early as the 1920’s in Soviet Russia, laws against ‘racial hatred’ have been wrongfully instituted and applied in order to protect and advance the interests of certain groups of citizens at the expense of other groups and sometimes the majority of citizens. See Point One above. ‘Vilification’ is also too vague and subjective a term on which to base legal sanctions.
SIX If the protection against intimidation is preserved, then I agree that ‘intimidate’ should be taken to mean ‘fear of physical harm’. Claims that ‘fear of emotional harm’ should be included should be rejected, as the criterion would be too vague and subjective. Such an addition would facilitate special pleading and be contrary to the spirit of my Point One above.
SEVEN The proposed Section 4, allowing exemptions, is not too wide, as some objectors have claimed. The phrase ‘public discussion’ is appropriately wide-ranging. It takes account of the fact that reasonable and acceptable discussion of sensitive topics takes place in arenas other than the strictly academic (universities and other tertiary institutions). It also takes account of the fact that dissident writers are often denied access to major media. It takes account of the fact that much useful discussion is simply posted on to the internet.
EIGHT However, one word should be added to the list of kinds of matter. That word is ‘historical’. The phrase should thus read: ‘of any political, social, cultural, historical, religious, artistic, academic or scientific matter.’ Some of the most sensitive controversies bearing on race and ethnicity deal with historical topics.
BOB CARR’S REVELATIONS ABOUT WORLD POLITICS
Bob Carr’s book “Diary of a Foreign Minister” has really stirred the pot by outlining the power and influence of the Israel Lobby. He goes so far as to say that under Julia Gillard Australia’s Middle East policy-making was subcontracted out to Melbourne’s rich and powerful Israel Lobby. “What I’ve done is to spell out how the extremely conservative instincts of the pro-Israel Lobby in Melbourne was exercised through the then PM’s office. Certainly they enjoyed extraordinary influence. I had to resist it and my book tells the story of that resistance coming to a climax when there was a dispute on the floor of the caucus,” Carr said on Lateline.
How was this influence achieved? According to Carr, on the same Lateline program: “I think party donations and a program of giving trips to MPs and journalists to Israel. But that’s not to condemn them. I mean, other interest groups do the same thing. But it needs to be highlighted because I think it reached a very unhealthy level.” The response by members of the said lobby has been : why should we apologise about this when others also try to have an influence on government? But this response ignores Carr’s main critique which is that the level of influence was, and arguably maybe is, so great as to be at an “unhealthy level.” Carr says that about one-fifth of the money raised in the 2007 election campaign had come from the Jewish community.
Now in response to this debate one can agree that a group which is part of the fabric of Australian society should be able to influence the government. Thus the majority racial group which founded Australia, fought for the nation and built it, the Anglo-Saxon people, should also organise as a lobby group and influence government. Any objections anybody? None? Okay, let’s get to work.
WHAT AMERICANS ARE READING ABOUT AUSTRALIAN POLITICIANS
“Former Australian Foreign Minister Confirms that the Israel Lobby Controls Australia’s Foreign Policy”: Brenton Sanderson Occidental Observer, April 13, 2014
In my series of extended essays entitled “The War on White Australia” I described how Jewish activism was pivotal in ending the White Australia policy and initiating the mass non-White immigration that is rapidly transforming that nation. In addition, I showed how Jewish activism was instrumental in establishing multiculturalism as the ideological and legislative basis for social policy in Australia. Recently I explored the Jewish role in pushing for the enactment and extension of laws banning speech deemed contrary to their interests. Given the profound impact of Jewish ethno-politics on the Australian nation, nobody will be surprised to learn that Jewish influence also extends to the determination of Australia’s foreign policy.
Former Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr recently confirmed that this is indeed the case, observing that Australia’s foreign policy (particularly with regard to the Middle East) was being virtually dictated by organized Jewry. Carr, Australia’s Labor Party foreign minister from March 2012 to September 2013, made his comments while promoting his new book “Bob Carr: Diary of a Foreign Minister”.
Speaking to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Carr hit out at the “pro-Israel lobby in Melbourne,” saying it wielded “extraordinary influence” on Australia’s foreign policy during his time in Julia Gillard’s cabinet… Following Carr’s comments The Jerusalem Post sourly noted that: “John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt, who wrote a 2007 book alleging that the ‘Israel lobby’ has a stranglehold on US Foreign policy, have an Australian cousin: former foreign minister Bob Carr.”
NATIONAL SUMMIT TO REASSESS U.S.-ISRAEL “SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP”

PHILIP BENWELL COMMENTS ON THE ROYAL VISIT
The huge crowds that have come out to greet the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and this afternoon Prince George, were in no way due to a celebrity factor, as republicans are saying. The younger Royals are not celebrities, they are there to serve the people and, as far as the Duke of Cambridge is concerned, to perform his constitutional duties as second in line to the Throne. What film, TV or pop-star celebrity can possibly match the life of duty combined with the enormous charitable work that is undertaken by the Queen and our Royal family?
Whilst Princes William and Harry, and now Kate have had an enormous impact on the younger generation, they are not solely responsible for the younger people embracing the monarchy. Even before they assumed Royal duties the mood was changing. The Australian Monarchist League became aware of this over six years ago when so many young people were joining our ranks and were thirsty for information on the monarchy and on the Australian Constitution.
In fact, of our 17,000 members, which includes our online members and supporters, far more than half are under the age of 40 and many of our office bearers are in their twenties. This is similar to the manner in which the monarchy is continually reinvigorating itself whilst remaining a constant factor in our lives.
We saw the way our system of constitutional monarchy works with the sudden resignation of Barry O'Farrell from the premiership of New South Wales. There was no interruption to the governance of the State because that governance is in the hands of the Queen's representative, the Governor, who commissioned Mike Baird as the new Premier because he was the person who could command a majority in the Legislative Assemble of NSW.
Whilst congratulating Mr Baird, we believe that it was a severe lack of protocol, manners and judgement that he announced to the media that he supported a republic at the time that he was about to host the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as Premier of the State. It is to be hoped that he exercises greater care as Premier of New South Wales.
Furthermore, his advocacy of a republic shows how out of touch he is with public sentiment, particularly as recent polls have shown, amongst the younger generations who will probably view his quaint thinking as out of date and irrelevant to their Australia of 2014.
Indeed, the majority of young people don't want some tired old politician as their head of state. They honour and respect the Queen and feel comfortable and safe in the knowledge that in time William will become Prince of Wales and then King and then George after him.
TALK IS ALL ABOUT THE LOOMING FINANCIAL ‘DOOM AND GLOOM’
From Social Crediter Christopher Quigley
The Walking Dead on Welfare - "The baby boomers are in terrible shape. I mean financially. The oldest baby boomer is now 67- the age of retirement. And they need our help, and the help of everyone in the financial journalism community.
The three "stools" of retirement - Social Security, personal savings, and pension - are all under attack. They are underfunded, and baby boomers have done a shockingly poor job of preparing for retirement. It gets worse: We are all going to live to 85 years or older. We might, but a lot of us won't have two dimes to rub together.
The result: Unless something radical happens soon, there will be hordes of impoverished 70- and 80-year-olds walking around in less than a decade.
The Walking Dead on welfare. That's where CNBC and other like-minded networks come in. We need to begin a Great Saving program. With baby boomers living another 25 years, we need to get people to start saving more now and to invest MORE in the stock market, not less."
The recommendation for a “Great Saving program” - "to get people to start saving more now and to invest MORE in the stock market, not less” would hardly stand up as sound advice in the light of Social Credit analysis which identifies the investment of monetary savings as a major cause of an increasing disparity between prices and incomes with consequent increasing dependence upon financial debt. A policy which fails to liquidate the financial costs of current production while creating additional financial costs and obligations against future incomes hardly seems like a credible solution to our financial and economic problems.
Add to this the enormous displacement of human effort as a factor of production, such as predicted in the recent Chicago Tribune article, we are obviously accelerating toward a collision with disaster - not a disaster involving real and potential scarcity of goods and services, but a crisis of barred access to actual and potential abundance of such wealth because of a "financial disaster". How long will we permit distorted symbolic abstractions to dominate our real lives?
TONY ABBOTT GIVES AUSTRALIA TO CHINA
by Peter Ewer
However Tony Abbott is concerned that his Surrender Australia Policy, allowing communist Chinese State-owned companies could fuel a “race backlash”. (The Advertiser 12 April 2014 p.15) The aim is to develop the north of Australia as a “food bowl” to feed China’s rising middle class – not us. The aim is delusional and authorities have in the past pointed out problems with the north’s water. Yes, there is a lot for a few months of the year – then nothing. And most of it falls near the coast where it can’t be stored. But don’t let reality wreck a good fantasy for the economically insane Liberal Party.
WHERE IS THE PRESENT PHASE OF THE 'WORLD WAR' LEADING US?
Vladimir Putin has been in the news lately and many people see him as the rising ‘saviour’ in world affairs. Probably not unlike how many people saw Hitler – people who were seeking a way out of the misery and destitution of the 1930s. But do keep in mind, as reported in On Target, Vol 50 No 30 4 April 2014: “Last week MasterCard and Visa stopped servicing some Russian banks, which shows the Russian market remains the monopoly of international operators…” In other words, the financial system operates over and above Russian governments as it does in all other countries. Russia is not truly free… just being used, as is China, for the next phase of the World War for World Power.
I had been pondering over the news of Putin for a while and went looking for the material that tied in with what is happening with the rise of China along with Russia and the Eurasian trade block - and the weakening of the West. The American people have yet to learn their part in the World War Plan is over. Along with the rest of the West, it is planned they will sink into oblivion. There is nothing new in this push for World Power - it just wasn't so open as it now is.
The material I was looking for is in On Target, 4 April 2003 “If history is anything to go by, Americans will one day come to the realisation, just as the English did after the WWII phase of this battle, having done their duty by this Inner Power, in their weakened state, they will fade from view as a world power. Fanciful thinking? I don't think so.”
The situation in which America now finds herself was explained in On Target Vol.39, No.7, 28th February 2003:
Compare America's present parlous state with that of Britain's experiences in early 1940
In the Melbourne Herald 2nd February, 1940 the following article appeared

CHINA PREPARES MASSIVE INVESTMENTS IN CRIMEA
Source: CHINA TOPIX April 20, 2014
Chizhov described the “Power of Siberia” gas pipeline as a mega-project that will pump 60 billion cubic metres of gas annually from the Kovykta and Tchayandinskoe gas fields to Russia’s far east, where a branch line will deliver 38 billion cubic metres a year to China. He noted that Gazprom, Russia’s national oil company, and China National Petroleum Corporation (China’s largest oil company) have a legally binding agreement from 2013. He said that exploitation of the Tchayandinskoe field will begin in 2019. Chizhov said Russia and China will continue with plans for Chinese firms to build a 25 metre deep port in Crimea as part of a new transport corridor from Asia to Europe called “The Economic Belt of the Great Silk Route.”
As part of this project, Chinese firms will dig an enormous trench near the Crimean town of Frunze and fill it with sea water by demolishing a dam. Chizhov said Russia’s annexation of Crimea, which has been roundly condemned, has done nothing to stop the Crimean port project that is worth $3 billion in the first stage alone.
The Voice of Russia, the Russian government’s international radio broadcasting service, said that China “takes interest in alternative energy projects in Crimea.” Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich concurred.

ABBOTT’S ‘WORK-UNTIL-YOU DIE’ ECONOMY
by James Reed
Personally I think it would be a good thing to eliminate it all tomorrow, if Tony had real backbone. Bring it on! Saving money is your ‘goal and god’ Tony, so why don’t you do it? Don’t let social chaos and human misery stand in the way of penny pinching! Give the Chinese some amusement! I mean to say, just cutting immigration would save the infrastructure of about the present cost of the old age pension. But fear of the ethnic lobby will never let him do that.
IS POLITICAL CORRECTNESS NOW SO ABSURD THAT ALL THAT IS LEFT… is Implosion?
By Peter West
Item 2 : Actress Kirsten Dunst dared to state in the May edition (apparently forthcoming) of UK’s Harper’s Bazaar a defence of traditional motherhood and she said that femininity is undervalued. The best relationships are those where men can be men, and women, women. Instantly feminists went berserk, screaming abuse at her. Looks like the end of her acting career – and that’s a pity because she was sensational as a damsel-in-distress in the first “Spider-man” movies.
Tobias Langdon in his article “Comrades and Cannibals: Odium Theologicum on the Modern Left” (Occidental Observer.net 7 April 2014), reflecting on many more absurdities like this concludes that “The Left is not just eating itself: it’s eating the West, helping to destroy the societies that have funded its parasitism and tolerated its posturing. There is no easy or painless way out, but one positive thing will emerge from the approaching collapse: leftism and liberalism will be discredited for good.” The time will be ripe to rebuild society on a new foundation – so let’s get it right that time!
WHAT THE GREAT RACE VILIFICATION DEBATE SHOWS ABOUT… Multicultural/Multiracial Society
by Richard Miller
In other words, despite an enormous amount of argument by conservative and legal minds, mainly in The Australian, clearly showing that these laws undermine free speech, the ethnic lobby holds to resisting changes. Therefore it is reasonable to infer that they rank social control above freedom of speech.
And so too does the Left and all of our “intellectuals” as Janet Albrechtsen has pointed out, quoting Canadian journalist Mark Steyn (The Australian 9 April 2014, p.11). Australia’s “intellectuals” are silent because their level of political correctness and/or cowardice is even greater than Canada’s. But at least we have seen where multiculturalism leads to: group interest overrides the liberal value of free speech. That to my mind is a knockdown argument against multicultural societies.
REMEMBERING BOB HAWKE’S SPEECH TO THE FABIAN SOCIETY
by Peter West
The Hawke paper mentions that the philosophy of Fabianism “aims at the reorganisation of society by the emancipation of the land and Industrial Capital from individual and class ownership.” As Hawke says: “The Fabian Society acknowledges the principle [sic: “principal” Bob] tenet of Marxism : the abolition of private property.” Nothing here about financial monopolisation! On the contrary, individuals having property and land is the real basis of freedom and wealth. The fault of Capitalism, from the perspective of Social Credit is, to put it crudely, that the people do not have enough “private” property, especially purchasing power.
Hawke mentions the principle of the inevitability of gradualness and also the Fabian principle of changing the mental climate of a country, or “permeation”. This has been successfully done with the slow undermining of the White Australia Policy, multiculturalism, mass migration and the latest globalist-socialist strategy of Asianisation – although Hawke said nothing of this in 1984. He does say that social change must involve “the whole mood and mind and attitudes of the nation” being “permanently changed”.
If you can’t beat them, join them – well not exactly “join them”, but learn from their strategies and tactics. We, the dispossessed majority, have to work as the victorious Fabians have done, and apply their principles of permeation and the inevitably of gradualism against them; “never confront the enemy directly in the open battlefield, but defeat him gradually through a series of small battles, running after each successful foray”. Thanks for the tip, Bob.
