5 September 2014 Thought
for the Week:
SOUTH AFRICANS ‘TOLERANT’ Mr TUTU? IT SEEMS NOT ALL …
The headlines read: “32 White Farmers Killed in 30 Weeks”
Well, here's one farmers' account, who was made to watch as they gang-raped his wife and 8-year old daughter, and then watched as they butchered them to death - after they'd gang-raped him and tried to bludgeon him to death as well. His 6-year old son survived, apparently unharmed…. But, the world just shrugs, and says, that's Africa. Leave if you don't like it there. Yes, leave - where to? If you don't have the opportunity, or if you can't leave, or if you don't want to leave, then what?
Yet, South Africa - just like most colonised countries in Africa - was once a peaceful, successful and mostly civilised country once upon a time. All that hard work was thrown out the window the day the country was handed to a bunch of terrorists, headed by Saint Dead Terrorist, whose only legacy will be that he couldn't control his own people, and he ruined a once great country through crime, corruption, lies, hatred and greed.
The farm attacks are also a way to keep the White people in South Africa traumatised, scared and disheartened. For those of you out in the world who are interested in what White South African farmers have to live with, read the story here… https://www.censorbugbear.org/farmitracker/reports/view/2503
It's just one of many.
Report by Eddy von Maltitz
When reporters approached the police for a comment about the frequency of such attacks, they simply responded by saying this attack, like many other unsolved cases cannot be added to any statistics since murder has not been proven yet.
RACISM, IMMIGRATION AND FREE SPEECH
by Richard Miller
Clive and China:
Clive though, soon issued not one, but two humble apologies, and his own “Wang was Lobbied Over China Apology”, to use a headline. (The Australian 28 August 2914, p.6) It is a pity that Palmer initially responded with terms of abuse rather than cool logic and argument because there is much to criticise about China beginning with China’s monitoring of overseas Chinese, or as an article published at the same time as the Palmer controversy put it: “Chinese Australians are being lectured, monitored, organised and policed in Australia on instruction from Beijing as never before”. (The Australian 19 August 2914, p.9) So much for national respect!
Then we have Palmer United Senator Jacqui Lambie who seems to be running two contradictory lines. First she supported Abbott’s abandonment of amendments to the Racial Discrimination Act because “non-ethnic Australians” must be protected: “Just as our ethnic minorities are offered legal protection from offensive insults – so too must non-ethnic Australians be offered the same legal protection from the growing group of radicals, who go out of their way to insult … those born under the Southern Cross”. (The Advertiser 27 August 2014, p.4) A noble sentiment, but one which ignores the fact that anti-racism is the new religious tyranny of the age and the entire spectrum of the new class and professional ethnics use section 18C.
It has never been used by Anglo-Australians as the lawyer class see it as a way of protecting minorities. Insulting and vilifying Anglos has become institutionalised now. Thus the only way forward is to see section 18C as the ethno-political weapon that it is, and fight for its eventual elimination.
Lambie made headlines for her proposal that China will attempt to invade Australia and that the country should build missile shields and defence systems. (“Prepare for Chinese Invasion”, The Australian 20 August 2014, p.5) She said: “If anybody thinks that we should have a national security and defence policy, which ignores the threat of a Chinese communist invasion – you’re delusional and got rocks in your head. The communist Chinese military capacity is at an unprecedented and historical high. They come at a time when Australian military spending and capacity is at historic lows. Today China is controlled by an aggressive, anti-democratic, totalitarian government. We need to double the size and capacity of our military right now. Both Labor and the Liberals/Nationals have failed to build an Australian military that is able to defend us – and stop our grandchildren from becoming slaves to an aggressive, anti-democratic, totalitarian foreign power”.
The outgoing Indonesian president has expressed fears that China/US tensions and territorial disputes between China and other Asian nations threatened to destabilise the region. (The W.E. Australian 23-24 August 2014, p.1) Consequently it is wise to strengthen defences because all the signs of a future war are there to be seen. However thoughts along such lines are now “racist” because well, they may offend a trading “partner”.
Nothing prevents old section 18C being used on those who do raise such objections. All that is needed is for someone to be “offended” and nothing is easier than that. That is the real problem with section 18C, as it makes speech about almost any racial matter out of bounds by definition. Sure there is the supposed section 18D defence, but that is virtually useless because it requires a “good faith” act and the courts simply see any controversial claims in this area as not in “good faith”. In the case of the China debate, this could prove fatal to national survival.
UNIVERSITY ECONOMICS TEACHING – A £9,000… LOBOTOMY?
Aditya Chakrabortty, The Guardian, Friday 9 May 2014.
The Post-Crash Economics Society at Manchester University has arranged an evening class on bubbles, panics and crashes. "I don't care who writes a nation's laws – or crafts its treatises – if I can write its economics textbooks," said Paul Samuelson. The Nobel prizewinner grasped that what was true of gadgets was also true for economies: he who produces the instruction manual defines how the object will be used, and to what ends.
Samuelson's axiom held good until the collapse of Lehman Brothers, which triggered both an economic crisis and a crisis in economics. In the six years since, the reputations of those high priests of capitalism, academic economists, have taken a battering.
The Queen herself asked why hardly any of them saw the crash coming, while the Bank of England's Andy Haldane has noted how it rendered his colleagues' enchantingly neat models as good as useless: "The economy in crisis behaved more like slime descending a warehouse wall than Newton's pendulum". And this week, economics students from Kolkata to Manchester have gone on the warpath demanding radical changes in what they're taught. In a manifesto signed by 42 university economics associations from 19 countries, the students decry a "dramatic narrowing of the curriculum" that presents the economy "in a vacuum". The result is that the generation next in line to run our economy, from Whitehall departments or corporate corner-offices, discuss policy without touching on "broader social impacts and moral implications of economic decisions".
The problem is summed up by one of the manifesto's co-ordinators, Faheem Rokadiya, at the University of Glasgow: "Whenever I sit an economics exam, I have to turn myself into a robot". But he and his fellow reformers aren't seeking to skimp on algebra, or calling for a bonfire of the works of the Chicago school. They simply object to the notion that there is one true way to do economics, especially after that apparently scientific method has been found so badly wanting.
In their battle to open up economics, Rokadiya et al have one hell of a fight on their hands, for the same reason that it has proved so hard to democratise so many aspects of the post-crash order: the forces of conservatism (the entrenched…ed) are just too powerful. To see how fiercely the academics fight back, take a look at the University of Manchester.
Since last autumn, members of the university's Post-Crash Economics Society have been campaigning for reform of their narrow syllabus. They've put on their own lectures from non-mainstream, heterodox economists, even organising evening classes on bubbles, panics and crashes. You might think academics would be delighted to see such undergraduate engagement, or that economists would be swift to respond to the market. Not a bit of it. Manchester's economics faculty recently announced that it wouldn't renew the contract of the temporary lecturer of the bubbles course, and that students who wanted to learn about the crash would have to go to the business school.
Students trained to ‘digest’ economic theory and ‘regurgitate’ it in exams
It is thorough and thoughtful, and reports:
The Manchester example is part of a much broader trend in which non-mainstream economists have been evicted from economics faculties and now hole up in geography departments or business schools. "Intellectual talibanisation" is how one renowned economist describes it in private. This isn't just bad for academia: the logical extension of the argument that you can only study economics in one way is that you can only run the economy in one way.
Mainstream economics still has debates, but they tend to be technical in nature. The Nobel prizewinner Paul Krugman has pointed to the recent work of Thomas Piketty as proof that mainstream economics is plenty wide-ranging enough. Yet when Piketty visited the Guardian last week, he complained that economists generate "sophisticated models with very little or no empirical basis … there's a lot of ideology and self-interest". Like so many other parts of the post-crash order, mainstream economists are liberal in theory but can be authoritarian in practice. The reason for that is brilliantly summed up by that non-economist Upton Sinclair: "It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends on his not understanding it". (emphasis added.. .ed)
FOOD BOWL ILLUSIONS
by James Reed
The “dining boom” was an idea pushed by Julia Gillard and taken up by Abbott. Mr. Bell has added a spot of realism to the debate: “Agriculture won’t take over from the mining boom. Our scarcest resource is water. To produce a whole lot more crop you need more water and that just isn’t going to come out of thin air”. Not only that but Australia has limits on the supply of arable land. “We just haven’t got the ability to double production here. We can get more efficient and if we are good at it, generate 15-20 per cent more product. (The Asian food bowl goal) is a nice ambition to have, but isn’t very realistic”.
I agree: it is good to see a bit of common sense in this wild and woolly field. The motivation for the food bowl nonsense, as I see it, is simply to play to the Asianist sentiment and show that Australia is doing its part to dissolve itself. Those that advance this idea never consider the real environmental problems which Australia has which threatens agricultural sustainability – water availability, soil degradation, salinity and so on. Australia will be lucky to feed itself in the future.
THE SUN WILL ALSO SET ON CHINA
by James Reed
Matthew Parris “China, These are Your Salad Days: Enjoy Them While They Last” (The Australian 28 July, 2014 p.7) points out that there are costs to empire building and that feedback mechanisms are set up that inevitably tear such empires down. With the growing economic and socio-political turmoil that the world is spiralling into, the Chinese salad days will diminish.
THE INCREDIBLE BLACK, SMOKING, DRINKING JESUS
by Peter West
Indeed, I may be a lone dissenting voice here, but the economic question is a minor one in the context of the rise and fall of civilisations. Economies and economic systems come and go. What is important are the races, the people who create the systems. Ignore the racial survival question, and despite whatever good work one does with economic enlightenment, expect any good you have to achieved to benefit other races, whilst your kind faces oblivion.
But I digress. The Catholic League has said that it is good with the “Black Jesus” character on the Adult Swim network. Black Jesus drinks, smokes and tries to pick up women, but has “many redeeming qualities”. The characterisation was not condemned because it was thought that the show “could actually draw viewers to the spiritual light”. When was the “end justifies the means” part of Catholic teaching?
HAVE YOU HEARD OF ‘WEAR IT PURPLE DAY’?
Well, the Department of Defence have and are actively promoting it! Having received a copy of the notice the Dept. of Defence is promoting (a “Wear it Purple Day” to be held on 29 August), I thought it would be worthwhile to be reminded of our human nature by republishing an article by Dr. Louise Eickhoff, M.D., M.R.C.Psych., D.P.M. I met Dr. Eickhoff when in the UK in the 1990s. As I remember, she worked with troubled young people.
METAMORPHOSIS AND THE HUMAN BEING by Louise F.W. Eickhoff, M.D., M.R.C.Psych., D.P.M. - reprinted from Home journal February 1982.
The passage from the one phase to the other is no mere transition or growth process, but a true metamorphosis. Although the process can be followed in all creatures above those forms where propagation is effected by simple fission, it is most lucidly defined in the insect world, particularly in moths and butterflies, where until relatively recently the caterpillar, chrysalis, and winged adult forms, in appearance and habit so unlike, were taken to be three different organisms, unrelated, belonging to separate subspecies in the insect order.
The three “forms” are repeated in the human, but the outward physical similarity has obscured the constitutional and mechanistic differences in the child (caterpillar), the adolescent (chrysalis) and adult, which apply to the whole of living, not only in the physical (as in the insects and other lesser orders) but in the personal, or psychological, spheres. The child and the adult are the exact inverse or antithesis of each other, the two ends of a long scale or spectrum, the black and white of it, in all aspects of their being. Like the caterpillar, the child is a simple entity concerned with and able to “see” barely and only what is directly in front of it, or what touches it intimately. It lives in a localized, circumscribed habitat, an existence extremely uninviting and dull compared with the adult’s, unvaried, routinized, and repetitive.
This is essentially so, for its life pivots around the alimentary tract (just as does the caterpillar’s), highlighted by the orifices at both ends, and the urge to fill itself, through the orifices at the head end (the Victorians said that a child was all eyes and ears!) with all it comes across, to submit to digestive and metabolic processes (intellectual and emotional as well as the animal physical) geared only to the simple diet.
Constitutionally, neither the child nor the caterpillar is built for anything more varied, exciting or interesting. And not only are both caterpillar and child “innocent” of all mature matters, the sexual aspects, the adult interests and way of life, but there are incorporated into the immature system innate barriers to becoming prematurely involved. The whole sexual apparatus (structures, mechanisms, knowledge of or ability to work them and incorporate them into the life process) remains rudimentary in the immature.
In the child the personal aspects are being laid down continuously in the unconscious, as rudiments to remain as dormant as the insect’s physical components until the end of metamorphosis. The child is as earthbound (anal-bound) as the wingless caterpillar in respect to sexual matters; nor can it rise above that level however much it is fed on adult material. Adolescence is like the chrysalis, a stage of metamorphosis when every system undergoes a transformation that will enlarge perception and capacity, horizons and spheres; and enable all functions as befitting the translation of the creature into a new form of being with a novel mode of living free of former ties and dependence, and a previously unknown, completely different ‘diet,’ nectar instead of leaf, reality instead of fantasy.
In the human, for instance, the balance of lymphocytes to leucocytes in the blood is inverted. Bony epiphyses cease to be laid down and begin instead to fuse; and the brain, heart and respiration, and sleep rhythms, the physical proportions and glandular activities alter according to a recognized program standard throughout humanity. Mental processes, attitudes, orientations, values and relationships undergo this same transmutation. The sex organs enlarge and start to work; and sex and its orifices become the hunger and the avenue of satisfaction to take precedence, in maturity, over the alimentary orifices and functions. And in both insect and human, the threshold for excitement becomes ultimately raised so that “flight” becomes possible without damage to the constitution or the environment.
Western man has lost touch with how to live and let live
I have seen a Garden Tiger Moth which had its pre-metamorphosis wandering thus artificially interrupted. It came too quickly out of the imperfectly formed pupa, climbed the privet stem, as it would have done in its natural habitat, but retained some of the chrysalis about its tail. It dried its wings and spread them but never flew. It stayed as it was until its death a few days later.
The children we interfere with retain childish and adolescent features into their adult years. They can function sexually but fail to make the full flight into that love union that makes a permanently committed marriage, and translates the woman at the birth of her first child into that maternal being who alone can make, not only the mother-child bond, but tie the father, through herself, to the child. It is this unique relationship that makes the foundation of all religious understanding and the happy acknowledgment of a loving Supreme and caring Authority, the basis of all quality and enrichment of life.
 The sexual component of all acts and relationships in the immature human goes direct to the unconscious, bypassing the conscious.

BERNARD GAYNOR REPORTS, 26 August 2014:
"Today's decision will set a precedent for future cases that not only is vilifying homosexuals illegal, but you can't use the Bible or religion as a valid legal defence," said Mr Burns.” The above words come from a press release issued by homosexual activist, Garry Burns. Mr Burns released it after the NSW Civil and Administrative Decision Tribunal ruled two weeks ago that a Christian candidate from Victoria, Tess Corbett, could not appeal against its finding that she had vilified homosexuals.
Tess found herself in hot water for simply and honestly responding to questions from her local newspaper while campaigning for the 2013 Federal Election. Tess was asked her views about proposed changes to Commonwealth anti-discrimination laws. Tess stated that she:
We now live in a world where it is legal to campaign for paedophiles to gain the same rights as homosexuals. But it is illegal to say that you oppose this idea. We now live in a world where it is legal for Christian organisations to discriminate against homosexuals. But it is illegal to say that you support this.
And we now live in a world where a single homosexual activist in Sydney has the power to silence anyone he disagrees with via the NSW Anti-Discrimination Board and NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal. Together, they have decided that they have the power to investigate and prosecute anyone in Australia for almost everything that they do or say. The NSW taxpayer foots the bill for this entire apparatus and every time Garry Burns wins a case, he gets to pocket the fine.
So far, Garry Burns has won every single time. And because he makes so many complaints, he is probably keeping half the staff at the NSW Anti-Discrimination Board employed.
Now he has set his sights on me. Garry Burns has lodged seven complaints against me and I am resigned to receiving a new complaint every time I write from the Christian perspective about homosexuality. It is obvious that homosexual vilification laws have been turned into a weapon to be wielded against those who dissent from the views of the ‘Thought Police’… These laws are an attack on morality. They are an attack on freedom. And they are an attack on truth.
OH, OH… HEAT TURNED BACK ON BOM FOR CLIMATE CHANGE RECORDS?
Source: JoanneNova website.
“Finally, the secrets of why the Australian BOM changed cooling trends to warming trends... BOM (Bureau of Meteorology) finally explains! Cooling changed to warming trends because stations “might” have moved!
It’s the news you’ve been waiting years to hear! Finally we find out the exact details of why the BOM changed two of their best long term sites from cooling trends to warming trends. The massive inexplicable adjustments like these have been discussed on blogs for years. But it was only when Graham Lloyd advised the BOM he would be reporting on this that they finally found time to write three paragraphs on specific stations.
Who knew it would be so hard to get answers. We put in a Senate request for an audit of the BOM datasets in 2011. Ken Stewart, Geoff Sherrington, Des Moore, Bill Johnston, and Jennifer Marohasy have also separately been asking the BOM for details about adjustments on specific BOM sites. (I bet Warwick Hughes has too). The BOM has ignored or circumvented all these, refusing to explain why individual stations were adjusted in detail. The two provocative articles Lloyd put together last week were Heat is on over weather bureau and Bureau of Meteorology ‘altering climate figures, which I covered here (“The heat is on. Bureau of Meteorology ‘altering climate figures’ — The Australian”).
This is the power of the press at its best. The absence of articles like these, is why I have said the media IS the problem — as long as the media ignore the BOM failure to supply their full methods and reasons the BOM mostly get away with it. It’s an excellent development The Australian is starting to hold the BOM to account. (No sign of curiosity or investigation at the ABC and Fairfax, who are happy to parrot BOM press releases unquestioned like sacred scripts.)
Graham Lloyd sent the BOM a draft of his feature article for The Australian last Tuesday or Wednesday. The BOM finally replied at 5.30pm on Friday night as the last draft was almost ready to print. I’ve copied the whole BOM response here. (“Australian BOM responds to Graham Lloyd, at The Australian”) I explain below why this is a good response for skeptics. The BOM rely on the usual vague wordy explanation with the unscientific reasoning that homogenization is necessary according to “international literature”. (I guess there is a consensus then, and we all know what that’s worth.) It is the scientific equivalent of saying “we’re experts — trust us”. No one would accept that from a company accountant, why from a scientist?
