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:

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.

THE BEST ENEMY MONEY CAN BUY

     I believe it important Australians study very carefully just how modern governments have been betraying their own peoples for at least the last century. The answer could be in the following story of Western Capitalism and the former Soviet Union that you have never read.

     This business of lending blood money is one of the most thoroughly sordid, cold blooded, and criminal acts that was ever carried to any considerable extent, amongst human beings. It is like lending money to slave traders, or to common robbers and pirates, to be repaid out of their plunder. And the man who loans money to governments, so called, for the purpose of enabling the latter to rob, enslave and murder their people, are among the greatest villains that the world has ever seen.  -- Lysander Spooner, “No Treason” (Boston, 1870)

Letter to The Editor - DEPENDS ON ONE’S VERSION OF ‘HISTORY’

Letter published in The Australian, 6/7/17      “I am bewildered by Bob Carr’s attack on “Israel’s foul occupation” (5/7/17). Just with whom can Israel negotiate a two-state solution?  Or does Carr support the ambitions of Hamas, which controls Gaza, to drive every last Israeli to drown in the sea?  As for Mahmoud Abbas, President of the Palestinian territory on the West Bank, he has not held elections in the past twelve years, and his hold on power is tenuous at best. Furthermore, he speaks out of both sides of his mouth: while assuring a succession of US Presidents that he is willing to negotiate a two-state solution, he always backs out by imposing unacceptable pre-conditions, such as the “right of return” of generations of Palestinian refugees to Israel which would demographically swamp the Jewish state.      I suggest that instead of grand-standing at ALP conferences, Bob Carr appoint himself as conciliator-in-chief and see if he can bring Hamas and Abbas to a negotiating table with Benjamin Netanyahu, the current Prime Minister of Israel.”Babette Francis, Toorak, Vic.

To Which Wallace Klinck of Canada Responded:     “I am afraid that Babette seems naively and seriously to misperceive the overall situation.  “Israel” does not “negotiate” with anyone.  It holds to a megalomaniacal messianic world vision as its destiny and only makes demands which serve this end.  A two-state “solution” is impossible because the second state rapidly would be bullied, destroyed and absorbed into the “Greater Israel” Middle East project.  A single state is impossible because Israel will never accede to co-operate with alien elements in a unitary government which soon would become dominated by non-Jewish elements.

Donald Trump just ended a tradition of celebrating Ramadan at the White House

     In the US, for the first time in two decades, the White House has not recognised the Muslim holiday Ramadan, unlike the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations, which did recognise it. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the State Department would break with tradition and not host a Ramadan reception (thewashingtonpost 25/6/17).to which Wallace Klinck from Canada explained:     Well, recognition by the State could well be interpreted as an endorsement by Government.  If that is to be accorded then in all “fairness” it should be done for every other “religion” large or small even if entirely incompatible and at odds with one another—or with the larger society or the State itself.  The problem is, of course, that when different groups of people find “realities” which are not compatible but all claim, honestly or otherwise, to be correct—how do you accommodate this chaotic situation?  I think that it is fairly safe to say that in final analysis there is only one “reality”—but what mortal human is qualified to render a conclusive judgement on the matter?  We who have developed within and from an overwhelmingly “Christian" background seem to have produced with great historic faith, effort and dedication the most advanced societies and I think that we would be very foolish to abandon this achievement to the demands of minorities or foreign migrants, promoted and encouraged through subterfuge by hostile elements, domestic and foreign, who are skilled in exploiting our “tolerance” and “fairness” for their own ends.  Obviously, I am biased toward the Christian concept of life because I think that, although it has by no means been adequately followed and has had its own dark moments in history, it has in balance produced through its unique emphasis on individual freedom by far the most desirable conditions for humans.  Nominally, at least, and historically, it is overwhelmingly the dominant belief system in our part of the world and I think that wisdom requires that we should retain it in our continuing, but increasingly threatened, free and open quest for truth, in its broadest interpretation, as the only known sound foundation upon which to construct civilization.

     Organic change effected by constant contact with the real world and universe is both inevitable and entirely desirable—but we should resist sudden and/or radical social upheaval engineered by hidden and secretive forces bent on overthrowing millennia of development for their own self-serving ideological, political and economic agenda.  So far as Islam is concerned, aside from the undeniable merits of some of its individual members, it is as a collectivity both ideologically and politically militant and fundamentally incompatible with our civilization and I think that the two belief systems should remain in their own regions of the globe to demonstrate to themselves and to the world what they can achieve.  Islam has nothing essential to offer the West and we are under no obligation whatsoever to extend to it an opportunity of occupation and inevitable conquest through the means of its high birth rate alone.  We already have erred fatally by succumbing to the inimical policies of another group which is very small in number but exercises by deceptive means and subterfuge an influence that is thoroughly out of proportion to its numerical presence.       In my opinion, politicians who compromise the interests of their nations either by bending to wealthy and powerful minority interests or by promoting an influx of foreign peoples for the intended purpose of securing an expanded electoral base are guilty of betraying their nations and are the basest of people, devoted to the quest of power and devoid of morals or ethics.  One wonders, of course, what this may have to say about the people who repeatedly vote them into office.The people perish for want of knowledge.

THE PYNE/TURNBULL BETRAYAL OF CONSERVATIVE VALUES

I have simply changed certain words in the following article from those of Ivor Benson’s where he explained former PM Ian Smith’s betrayal of his Rhodesian people and nation. Benson asked the question:

How else are we to explain the dazed incomprehension with which the rank and file members of the Liberal Party, even members of parliament, even cabinet ministers, looked on as one by one all those ‘evil geniuses’, genuine opponents of the socialist world revolution, were defamed, tricked, driven out of the party, or in some other way deprived of any influence?

The Futility of Environmental Sentiment By William Waite

Ref: http://www.socialcredit.com.au/social-credit-angles/entry/82-the-futility-of-environmental-sentiment     This weekend gone I was happy to sign a petition objecting to the Adani development in the Galilee basin, Queensland. The information given me at my local farmers market accurately reported on a number of concerns relevant to the Adani project.  At the heart of the protest lay the concern about the environmental impacts of the mine. The commitment of those involved in these campaigns is admirable, and I sense that the public is increasingly receptive to environmental issues. However, in my view the strategy of the environmental movement is critically incomplete.

     In 1918 a Scottish Engineer named Clifford Hugh Douglas wrote an article called The Delusion of Super Production1 for The English Review. In it he lay out a problem he had discovered with the functioning of the economic system.Having investigated more than a hundred companies he found that production costs always exceeded the money made available to workers, except in businesses going broke.

THE EVIL SHADOW…. THE WOMAN

The following story of the corrupted use of a nation’s money system by Peter Lock is a good example of the ancient art of story telling.

THOSE THINGS THAT WERE FORGOTTEN… AND LOST! by Betty Luks

     Jordan B. Peterson has done the People of the West a great service, probably greater than even he realises as the number viewing his Youtube DVDs, keeps rising.  His lectures revealing his understanding of how the world really works struck many chords with me.

     Peterson deals with the personality and subconsciousness of the individual and refers back to one of the earlier psychologists Carl Gustave Jung and his research into that realm.  He explains that what modern man sees as just books on Magic, that is the old stories and fables of fairy princesses and dragons and brave princes, would be in modern man’s vocabulary, “treatises on the psychology of the subconscious”.

MORE ON CANADA’S ‘SECRET AGENTS OF MOSCOW’

     The following short report appeared in The New Times, November 22, 1946: In his journal, “Tidings,” Mr. Douglas Reed, the famous British publicist, gives avery brief summary of some of the ‘leading features of the Final Report of the CanadianRoyal Commission. Mr. Reed says:

‘The Report goes deeply into the collaboration of Canadian subjects, describes in detail the methods by which they were recruited and trained, and names nine leading persons . . . who will have to answer charges of treason in the Russian interest.  Three of the nine worked in the espionage-recruitment bureau, then passport forgery office, and the general information service.(All nine belonged to the Canadian Communist Party; an unfavourable impression hasbeen made on the Canadian public by the fact that seven of them and twelve of thefifteen previously arrested are Jewish.)

TRULY REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT By Wallace Klinck, Canada

     No sovereign state is obligated in any way whatsoever to accept a flood of foreign peoples into its formal territory. The European people, including Britain, were seduced into a fatal surrender of their independence in joining a monstrous centralized power organization designed to strip them of their unique cultures and independent destinies. This unholy enterprise is the brainchild of megalomaniac internationalists who for objectives of centralizing both political and economic power, under the guise of a dangerous, sedulous and deceptive idealism which is intolerant of variation or differentiation and conceives a static and enforced unity as the preferred order of civilization. The fundamentally dishonest nature of these globalist power-mongers was evident in their original attempts to “sell” the European Union as a mere economic union based upon so-called free trade. In reality the price has been the progressive and rapid loss of national and cultural and independence--and individual freedom. The European Union was a malevolent scam from the time of its conception. The punitive and extortionate penalties which it imposes upon any nation not acceding to its dictates should be sufficient warning to any intelligent individual as to the ultimate tyranny under which people would live if this monstrous entity should be allowed to continue its exercise of illegitimate and unnatural power over nations.

     The dynamic which lies behind this centralizing movement is our defective and dysfunctional system of banking (credit issue) and national cost accounting. As labour as a factor of production is rapidly being replaced by automation and artificial intelligence (i.e., technology) industry must by conventional costing methods create ultimate consumer prices at an increasingly expanding rate of flow relative to the rate at which it pays effective purchasing-power into the hands of consumers. Consumers are required ultimately to liquidate all costs of production via their purchases. Being unable to do so with their inadequate incomes, consumers are forced increasingly to rely upon credit created by banks as an ever expanding inflationary debt charged to future cycles of production. Governments attempt to mitigate this situation by themselves contracting cumulative loans from the banking system. Debt may allow immediate access to produced goods but it does not liquidate permanently the financial costs incurred in their production because, although having allowed the producer to recover his costs and repay his original production loan from his bank, their equivalent becomes a charge that is accounted against future economic activity. This is no liquidation at all. The crucial point to note here is that the actual physical costs of production are fully met at the moment any produced item is finished and ready for consumer purchase. As a society we are not permitted to access currently available product without first engaging in further production so as to earn the incomes required to purchase past production. These incomes will not be available to purchase current production of which they will, nevertheless, be accounted as a cost when these goods are completed. There is an intrinsic flaw in the price-system which distributes an increasingly insufficient flow of cost-liquidating consumer income.

ARE WE ALL Small ’l’ liberals NOW?

     The headlines exposing the influence within Australia of the Communist Chinese government’s spy agencies comes as no surprise to those within the Australian League of Rights.  But it is a reminder of earlier communist infiltrations within nations.  Readers should take a look at a modern map of the world and see just how many countries have become socialist/communist over the last fifty years.

     I am reminded of what Ivor Benson had to say about Ian Smith and the controlled opposition within the ‘conservative’ party ranks of the former Rhodesian Front:

AMERICAN FREE PRESS REPORTS ON LATEST BILDERBERGER ‘GET TOGETHER’

“Bilderberg 2017 Wraps Up in Virginia” by Mark AndersonAFP’s on-the-ground Bilderberg Meeting 2017 reporter’s Saturday morning dispatch reveals that, not surprisingly, U.S. corporate media is pretending, again this year, that participation by active American government office-holders in the secretive meeting is not worth reporting on.Fortunately, American Free Press and a few other alternative, real news sites, are picking up the slack.

     CHANTILLY, Va.—On the morning of Saturday, June 3, the Bilderberg group’s 65th meeting since 1954—though vitally important, given the identity of this year’s attendees, the key topics they secretly discuss, and the relevance of those topics to major political and economic developments—had evidently been ignored by the national mainstream and regional media.

FALLACY COMMUNISM COULD BE HALTED BY ECONOMICS - OR TRADE?

     Eric Butler was a keen student of History and Communism and in O.T. 8 October 1965 wrote:

“In his address to the Melbourne Anglican Synod this week, the Most Rev. Dr. Frank Woods, Archbishop of Melbourne, fostered the most dangerous of the many fallacies concerning the true nature of Communism, that which postulates that Communism is primarily the product of physical poverty. This is generally known to matured students of Communism as the “empty-belly” theory. His Grace is reported to have said, “Poverty is the seed-bed of Communism”. Poverty is, of course, a relative term.

FIVE YEARS LATER: CHURCH LEADER ON VIETNAM MORATORIUM

     “The Anglican Archbishop of Melbourne (Dr. Frank Woods) said last night he had ‘some sympathy’ with Friday’s Vietnam moratorium,” - The Age, May 4.8 May, 1970:   https://alor.org/Volume6/Vol6No17.htm“As there was no reference in the report quoting Dr. Woods to the disastrous policies which have dragged out the Vietnam war, and made it a propaganda base on which every facet of civilised society has been attacked by the world wide communist conspiracy, it must be concluded that Dr. Woods like so many of his fellow clerics lacks a clear understanding of the forces using Vietnam to attack Christian civilisation, or what there is left of it.

     It would appear that such church leaders have lost certain powers of conviction in deciding what they are purported to understand more than other sections of the community - the difference between good and evil. Thirty years ago the position of the Christian faith and its spokesman in regard to Communism was quite different. It would have been difficult to find any Church leader other than odd individuals like the Red Dean of Canterbury who would concede sympathy for an obvious Communist propaganda campaign. Today many of them are marching alongside communists and anarchists.

TWENTY YEARS LATER: THE DISEASE WHICH PRODUCED PHILBY By Eric Butler, 20 May 1988.

     Kim Philby, the British double agent, who died last week in Moscow, should be regarded, not only as one of the most incredible espionage agents in modern history, but as a symptom of a disease, which in varying forms, has been sapping the vitality of Western societies for most of this century. While the type of espionage activities engaged in by the espionage agent of both the West and the East are still an important aspect of the struggle for the world, the conspiracy against the West has developed to the stage where policies which once have been generally denounced as treacherous, are not only accepted, but are lauded as progressive and, of course, “inevitable.”

     Sir John Barrington (1561-1621) aptly described the current situation with his famous lines: “Treason doth never prosper, what’s the reason? For, if it prosper, none dare call it treason.” Treason is now presented as being the norm.

A COLLECTIVE TRAGEDY

“Here we recognise the old game, Satan’s everlasting tactics. From the first temptation in Eden until now he has used the self same artifice; make a man believe that he is not responsible, that there is no judge, that the Law is doubtful, that nobody will know and that, moreover, once the deed is done, he will be God himself, and therefore in the position of master, and able to fix good and evil as he likes.”
