‘THE ROAD TO WIGAN’ WAS/IS THE HELLISH COAL TOWN

     Michael Lane in his journal “Triumph of the Past” dealt with C.H. Douglas’ warnings about ‘large-scale planning’ in “Power and Freedom”.  People seem to have forgotten the Soviet economic policy was based on such ‘Large-Scale Planning’, ‘Five-Year Plans’, etc., and after seventy years of ‘planning’ was revealed to be an absolute disaster!

     In 1946 Douglas presented the direction the socialist government was then taking Britain symbolically as “Wigan,” the hellish coal-town:

NIMBYS! REMEMBER FARMER GEORGE BENDER’S BATTLES?

“The planning of whole peoples to subordinate their activities (including teaspoons and motor-cars) to one overriding function.”  - from Michael Lane’s paper “Power and Freedom” based on the work of C.H. Douglas

     You may have heard the expression Nimby, meaning someone who acknowledges the need for big works but “Not In My Back Yard.” The expression is pejorative, as if to say that the sentiment “Not In My Back Yard,” though natural and even universal (there are no “Imbies”), is nevertheless selfish. It is as if to say that we all must be prepared to make such sacrifices when our turn comes. All those fool enough to vote for prodigious works should share the honour of making the sacrifice.

The Creative Ac-counting OF THE TEMPERATURE RECORDS

     I understand that if I ‘doctored’ the books of a company I would/could be charged with fraud… it is a criminal offence.  But what about the ‘doctoring’ of weather details by the Bureau of Meteorology, a taxpayer funded institution?  It seems that doesn’t count as a fraud.

     Do listen to Alan Jones’ interviewing Dr. Jennifer Marohasy on the ‘doctoring’ of the weather temperature details….  Appalling! http://www.2gb.com/podcast/dr-jennifer-marohasy/

THE ‘NEW AGE’ WAS UPON US LAST CENTURY

SAD NEWS FROM CANADA


     Our sincere thanks to Mr. Paul Fromm for the following news of the passing of fellow Canadian Barbara Kulazska.  We learnt of Barbara’s courage and loyalty from Mr. Doug Christie and his wife Keltie when they were in Australia.

     On June 15, 2017 we lost lawyer Barbara Kulazska to lung cancer at age 64. Barbara was one of the most important free speech lawyers of her generation. She worked closely with Douglas Christie in Zundel 11, in the Zundelsite case and did fantastic work with Marc Lemire in fighting Richard Warman and getting Sec. 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act (Internet censorship) declared unconstitutional.

THE ABC OF SOCIAL CREDIT

     “If Industry’s objective is more efficiently carried out by the use of machinery, automation and now robots, than by the use of man-power, then we must expect a progressive increase in unemployment.”  That was understood in the early years of the 20th century.      What about now in the early years of the 21st century?  The issues have become more pressing. Elizabeth Holter published a little book in 1934 explaining in simple terms what she understood as “The ABC of Social Credit”.  As she explained in the Introduction, the past few hundred years have seen the transformation of the world.  Before James Watt invented the first practical steam engine, the struggle for existence required all man’s time and energies and scarcity and want was never far removed, and always to be reckoned with.  And then ‘scarcity in an age of plenty’ loomed large because mankind had not grasped the dramatic changes that had taken place and his systems/institutions were based on policies originating in an earlier age.

     But we are now in the early part of the 21st century and with the Robotic Revolution and the growing Precariat (precarious unemployed and ever-growing personal and national debt)) there are those who are putting forward ideas on how to provide a Basic Income, and/or Positive Money for all citizens.

THE CHARTISTS FROM A SOCIAL CREDIT VIEWPOINT

     Watched the videos on the Institute of Public Affairs website by Dr. Bella on Australia’s The British Heritage of our Freedoms.  The videos are well worth watching.   Found here… https://ipa.org.au/heritage-of-our-freedoms

     The video “Australia’s own Tea Party Revolution” was of great interest to me.  It dealt with the role of a group of Chartists “on the Victorian gold fields in the 1850s and the demands they made following the Eureka Stockade…”Regular readers and supporters of ALoR journals and website would be very familiar with such discussions as Magna Carta; The Rule of Law; English (Common) Law; etc., so I thought I should search through The Social Crediter to see what C.H. Douglas had to say about the Chartists.The following is what I found in The Social Crediter, Vol.7, No.2, 31st January 1942Writing of Karl Marx, Major Douglas quotes historian Nesta Webster:

NOSEY PARKER IN THE GARDEN

     The following passage on the Fabian Manifesto of 1893 is from English Saga by Arthur Bryant:

“.... By attacking the private ownership of property they [the socialists] struck unconsciously at the foundation on which in the historic policy of England’s individual liberty had always rested. Because the privilege of ownership had ceased to be widespread as in the past and had become restricted to the few, they supposed that its destruction would extend to the freedom of many.

The Translation of “Quadragesimo Anno” Also of Great Interest

     Sir,The difference of opinion between H. E. Cardinal Villeneuve and the social crediters of Quebec revealed in the Montreal journal vers Demain presents an opportunity not to be missed.There are two passages in Quadragesimo Anno, the great encyclical on the Reconstruction of the Social Order issued by the late Pope Pius XI, which are of great importance in dealing with uninformed criticism from members of the Catholic Church.

     From paragraph 75 of the Latin version, the English translation reads,

Social Credit Exposed The Scam Last Century by Wallace Klinck


     It is tragic to observe society again being swept up in the false and fabricated Left-Right dialectic as the Banking Fraternity continues to dominate from its safe abode hidden above the storm--centralizing both wealth and power all the while in its megalomaniacal drive for World Dominion.  

     Social Credit exposed this scam in the early part of the last century and provided the appropriate recommendations to eliminate the prevailing system of continuing and exponentially expanding financial debt.  Communism/socialism and fascism both build up from the State rather than from the individual.

SOME IMPORTANT WARNINGS FROM THE PAST

The Supreme State, Planning and Scarcity: On Target 25 July 2014

“We are at the present time unquestionably under the domination of a financial system, which rules us. It rules us in our most basic necessities; the necessity for bed, board and clothes, and the other things that go to make up the standard of living. But we do not want to transfer that domination from, let us say, what we can call the banking system under another name to something we call the State. The great danger at the present time is not that the present financial system will persist ... but that under the confusion that will exist as a result of the crises caused by the breakdown of the financial system, an even greater tyranny may be put over on you as in the cases of many countries at the present time, and which is in active progress in still more countries even as I speak. That is the danger, and you must keep in your minds, to avoid that danger, some clear objective, and that objective, the proper relationship of the individual to the group, is in my opinion, the relationship and objective to which we want to strive….” - - From a speech by Major C.H. Douglas at Calgary, Alberta, Canada, April, 1934. https://alor.org/Library/ThoughtsofDouglas.htm

INDEPENDENT’S PROPOSAL: MORE SOCIALISM BY STEALTH?

     So, the news has filtered down to the UK’s newspaper The Independent that Canada is considering a Basic Income for the nation’s ‘precariats’.  Paid for out of taxation of course – you know, tax the rich to pay the poor - not created by a National Credit Office and issued debt free, as proposed by Social Credit concepts.

“Unlike its neighbour the United States, Canada projects an image of peace, plenty and progressive policies. But there’s a quiet rumble across the North American country. While the rest of the world is in love with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, his popularity ratings at home are down 9 per cent on last year. Income inequality is acute and unemployment is still stubbornly high. What new work that is being created in Canada’s economy is precarious and part-time. Wage rises are being eaten away at by inflation since the financial crisis and millions of jobs are at risk from automation.

WHAT ABOUT THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL ?

Eric D. Butler wrote:

“If, as we are told in the New Testament, the love of money is the root of all evil, why then, at a time when Christian Civilisation is clearly disintegrating, do so few of those who claim to speak in the name of Christianity, devote themselves to a realistic consideration of this warning?Christ was emphatic that it was impossible to worship both God and Mammon, that no one could serve two masters, and in the only act of physical violence during His Ministry, whipped the money changers out of the Temple.

The Western Betrayal of Civilisation

     “…All of us are standing on the brink of a great historical cataclysm, a flood that swallows up civilisation and changes whole epochs… we have all got to face up to a crisis - not just a social crisis, not just a political crisis, not just a military crisis. And we must not only face up to this crisis, but we must stand firm in this great upheaval - an upheaval similar to that which marked the transition from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance . . . Will we ever succeed in shaking off this burden, in giving free reign to the spirit that was breathed into us at birth, that spirit that distinguishes us from the animal world?” - - Alexander Solzhenitsyn in The Western Betrayal of Civilisation - B.B.C. Address, 1976

THE NEW BARBARISM by Eric D. Butler, On Target 28 August 1998

     The lessons of history are clear for all those who read them. But these lessons must be learnt, and acted upon, if ever there is to be peace on earth. The faster the growth of centralised power, the greater the social dislocations and violence. The faster the growth of violence at all levels throughout the world, the faster the retreat from civilisation.- - Eric D. Butler

We are republishing an article Eric D. Butler wrote in 1998.  But of course I can remember him sounding such warnings much earlier than 1998. Having absorbed Clifford Hugh Douglas’ analysis of Christian philosophy and history, Eric could see what was happening to the present western world.  Read on:

IT SEEMS LIKE WE’RE ALL STUCK ON THE R.E.M. SONG BY Bernard Gaynor

     It seems like we’re all stuck in the R.E.M. song, ‘It’s the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)’.  The leader of the great power in the Western world, Donald Trump, has just given a speech in which he openly raises the prospect of the decline of Western civilisation. And everyone is singing that they know it.And everyone is dancing that they feel fine.We’re partying like there will be no tomorrow. And for the West that may well be the case.

     This is part of what Donald Trump said ahead of the G20 in Poland:

WANT TO FIGHT CLIMATE CHANGE? HAVE FEWER CHILDREN: THE GUARDIAN

     A timely news item from Breitbart News, 12 Jul 2017.  It provides a backdrop for Bernard Gaynor’s comments on US President Donald Trump’s recent warning to the West. Having children is a “lifestyle choice” to be discouraged among young people in developed nations and is bad for the planet, according to a new paper trailed positively by the British left-wing Guardian newspaper.Source:  http://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/07/12/guardian-save-the-planet-have-fewer-children/

     Reporting a new Swedish-Canadian study promoting reducing the number of children born and seeking to target anti-child messages towards adolescents, Britain’s Guardian newspaper has played up the findings, labelling the “true impacts” of having a family as “lifestyle choices”, and asking the question of readers “Can you bring yourself to have one fewer of these?”.     “The climate mitigation gap: education and government recommendations miss the most effective individual actions”, published in Environmental Research Letters, is a new study by Seth Wynes of the Centre for Sustainability Studies, Lund University, Sweden, and Kimberly A Nicholas of the University of British Columbia, Canada.

AUSTRALIA’S ETERNAL POLITICAL CRISIS by James Reed, 2014

     Paul Kelly, The Australian’s “editor-at-large” (whatever that means – is there an “editor-at-small”), tells us that Australia’s political culture “is noisy, egotistical, destructive and consumed by self-interest”. (The Australian 2 July 2014, p.16) “The trajectory of Australia’s relative decline now seems set” and the political malaise “might only deepen under the Abbott prime ministership”.  The problem is the inability of the political system to respond to society’s needs – and this is common right across the West, Kelly tells us. The problems are at root philosophical: a culture of complaint, the decline of self-reliance, the belief that virtually any hardship is the fault of government”, are some of the problems.

     The League has been saying this and more for some time, indeed, a long time. The political system has got increasingly worse and basically has ceased to function as it was intended to do. Clearly we are at the “crossroads” and we may have to accept that “Australia” as we knew it is now dead for us and that we need to start building anew. It’s like an old orange tree that my folks had. The tree died, but some time later a new tree sprang up and grew around the old dead wood. The old wood eventually was no more.

IT WAS THE BEACH GOERS AND THE GRACE OF GOD’S WILL

     A good news story for a change.  The world is deluged by the bad news stories these days so we thought it would be good for our readers to read some good news for a change.Source: Dozens of beachgoers form human chain to save family swept out to sea in Florida‘These people are not drowning today’ - Independent, Katie Mettler, 11 July 2017     Dozens of people form human chain to save drowning familyWhen Jessica and Derek Simmons first saw the beachgoers pausing to stare toward the water, the young couple just assumed someone had spotted a shark.  It was Saturday evening, after all, peak summer season in Panama City Beach for overheated Florida tourists to cross paths with curious marine life. Then they noticed flashing lights by the boardwalk, a police truck on the sand and nearly a dozen bobbing heads about 100 yards beyond the beach, crying desperately for help.

     Six members of a single family — four adults and two young boys — and four other swimmers had been swept away by a powerful and deceptive riptide churning below the water’s surface.  “These people are not drowning today,” Jessica Simmons thought, she told the Panama City News Herald. “It’s not happening. We’re going to get them out.”She was a strong swimmer and fearless in the face of adversity. But others had tried to reach them and each previous rescue attempt had only stranded more people.
