THE LAND COURT JUDGEMENT FOR QUEENSLAND FARMERS

Source:  Lock the Gate Alliance       Darling Downs farmers have scored a legal victory in their battle against New Hope Coal.  This is a case of the Oakey Coal Action Alliance, EDO Queensland and the 30 other community members, taking their battle to save their farmland and their water to the courts – and winning!   Congratulations are in order to those brave souls who never gave up and took their stand to court!  And of course a big thank you to those who supported the cause for the farmers and community affected by this mine.  I would think a big thank you is due to radio personality Alan Jones who has supported the people all along.

We read:      “The Land Court judgement concluded that “The principles of intergenerational equity are breached.….with the potential for groundwater impacts to adversely affect landholders in the vicinity of the mine for hundreds of years to come”. “This is an extraordinarily strong and important outcome - but unfortunately it is not binding on the Queensland Government. It is only a recommendation for them to consider.  And we’ve seen strong recommendations from the Land Court watered down by politicians before.”

JUST WHAT DOES ‘TRADITIONAL’ LABOR BELIEVE ?

     I recently watched Mark Latham’s interview of Bernard Gaynor and his battles with the politically correct bureaucracy which is now before the Courts. (FOUND HERE: http://www.2gb.com/podcast/mark-latham-the-outsider-16/.(Bernard explained his SITUATION to us at the National 2014  Seminar)

     I see Mark describes himself as from the mould of traditional Labor within the political spectrum of a ‘Social Democrat’.  As Mark is being actively promoted by those who like to think of themselves as of ‘the conservative’ side of politics, I thought I should have a look at Mark’s background and try to determine just where he fits in to the political/media scheme of things.

THE GOLDEN RULE …

     Readers have commented on the article “The Institute of Historical Revisionism is Wrong, Wrong, Wrong” reminding me that while we are all individuals, ‘no man is an island unto himself’. We are social beings – and have always been social beings. Yes, of course that truth is recognised but the matter doesn’t end there.  Christianity teaches us that we are to ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you’. *     One can read in http://www.dictionary.com:

“This so-called golden rule is stated in just about every ancient writing about behavioural precepts (including the New Testament, Talmud, Koran, and the Analects of Confucius). Among the earliest appearances in English is Earl Rivers' translation of a saying of Socrates (Dictes and Sayenges of the Philosophirs, 1477): “Do to other as thou wouldst they should do to thee, and do to none other but as thou wouldst be done to.”  It is so well known that it is often shortened".*A command based on words of Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount : “All things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them.” The Mosaic law contains a parallel commandment: “Whatever is hurtful to you, do not do to any other person”.”http://www.dictionary.com/browse/do-unto-others-as-you-would-have-them-do-unto-you

THE INSTITUTE OF HISTORICAL REVISIONISM WAS WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!

      It was in March 2012 the Institute of Historical Revisionism (IHR) wrote of “America’s Great, Flawed Ideology of Individualism” (March 21, 2012).  Since that time the situation has only got worse and the American people struggle even more.  This has all been brought to mind by the recent newspaper headlines of the latest bombing in Manchester United Kingdom and the reported death of 29 teenagers in the bomb-blast. At the time  (2012) the IHR wrote:

“America’s ever more obvious cultural disintegration and social paralysis, and its erosion of national identity and purpose, are not minor or temporary problems, but are symptoms of a deep-rooted social-political illness and a systemic failure of the country’s democratic-capitalist system. In large measure, this sickness is the predictable, inevitable consequence of America’s basic ideology of “pursuit of happiness” individualism.  A guiding outlook that was useful, and perhaps even necessary, in an earlier age is now a liability. The ideology laid out in the US Declaration of Independence greatly encouraged this country’s astonishing dynamism, growth, inventiveness and prosperity, especially during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. But the core outlook that once contributed to this country’s development is incapable of sustaining a stable and healthy society. Especially in recent decades, America’s “pursuit of happiness” ideology has, inevitably and inexorably, been hastening our nation’s social-political dissolution and decline.”

PETERSON ON ‘ONE OF THE MOST DANGEROUS CANADIAN INSTITUTIONS’


Update: on May 18, C16 sailed through the Canadian Senate with no amendments.Senate hearing on Bill C16 - Jordan B. Peterson, 18 May 2017The following is an explanation from Jordan B. Peterson as to his testimony to the Canadian Senate’s Hearing on Bill C16:

I served as a witness at the Canadian Senate yesterday, regarding Bill C16, which adds the ill-defined categories of gender expression and gender identity to the list of prohibited grounds of discrimination. The Federal government, in a website which has since been taken down, stated clearly that this legislation would be interpreted in keeping with the policies of the Ontario Human Rights Commission, which I regard as one of the most dangerous institutions in Canada, in relationship to all rights other than those of “equality,” including freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and freedom of association.The Bill Amends the Canadian Human Rights Act and the Criminal Code.I was partnered with lawyer Jared Brown, whose courageous and detailed analysis of Bill C16 can be found here: https://litigationguy.wordpress.com/2017/05/19/d-jared-brown-and-dr-jordan-b-peterson-testifying-before-the-senate-legal-and-constitutional-affairs-committee/ which amends the Canadian Human Rights Act and the Criminal Code.  

G.K. CHESTERTON AND THE ‘BROAD CHURCH’ IN 1917

The Church of the Servile State: “Every religion, apart from open devil worship, must appeal to a virtue or the pretence of a virtue.   But a virtue, generally speaking, does some good to everybody. It is therefore necessary to distinguish among the people it was meant to benefit those whom it does benefit. Modern broad-mindedness benefits the rich; and benefits nobody else. It was meant to benefit the rich; and meant to benefit nobody else. And if you think this unwarranted, I will put before you one plain question.

There are some pleasures of the poor that may also mean profits for the rich: there are other pleasures of the poor which cannot mean profits for the rich? Watch this one contrast, and you will watch the whole creation of a careful slavery.

THE WILL OF MAMMON in “The Just Tax” by Geoffrey Dobbs 1994

“It is not the straits to which the Church may be reduced, along with the rest of us, which disheartens us; united in faith we could endure and achieve anything. It is the ready accommodation to, even the anticipation of the will of Mammon, both on the parochial and on the World scale…”

DON’T SELL AUSTRALIA OUT!

“Hundreds of small country towns have been stripped of their official status”. Why? Because the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) “has updated a new statistical standard to define an urban centre locality, or town. Census data is applied to a formula that decrees centres with less than 200 people are no longer towns”. Why? Because Government financial policy is making it “too expensive to live in rural areas with attendant withdrawal of essential services”. - - the Weekly Times 27th December 2013

Not by Drought, nor by ‘Global Warming’ but by Crafty Usurers!AUSTRALIA... When the shearing sheds are silent and the stock camps fallen quiet When the gidgee coals no longer glow across the outback night And the bush is forced to hang a sign, ‘gone broke and won’t be back’ And spirits fear to find a way beyond the beaten track When harvesters stand derelict upon the wind swept plains And brave hearts pin their hopes no more on chance of loving rains When a hundred outback settlements are ghost towns overnight When we’ve lost the drive and heart we had to once more see us right When ‘Pioneer’ means a stereo and ‘Digger’ some backhoe And the ‘Outback’ is behind the house, there’s nowhere else to go And ‘Anzac’ is a biscuit brand and probably foreign owned And education really means brainwashed and neatly cloned When you have to bake a loaf of bread to make a decent crust And our heritage once enshrined in gold is crumbling to dust And old folk pay their camping fees on land for which they fought And fishing is a great escape; this is until you’re caught When you see our kids with yankee caps and resentment in their eyes And the soaring crime and hopeless hearts is no longer a surprise When the name of RM Williams is a yuppie clothing brand Not a product of our heritage that grew off the land When offering a hand makes people think you’ll amputate And two dogs meeting in the street is what you call a ‘Mate’ When ‘Political Correctness’ has replaced all common sense When you’re forced to see it their way, there’s no sitting on the fence Yes one day you might find yourself an outcast in this land Perhaps your heart will tell you then, ‘. I should have made a stand’ Just go and ask the farmers that should remove all doubt  Then join the swelling ranks who say, ‘don’t sell Australia out’ - - Author unknown

“LIBERALS HAVE LOST. WE'RE ALL LEFTISTS NOW”…

writes Andrew Bolt on his Blog 11 May 2017.     The headline reminded me of an article Ivor Benson wrote as former Rhodesian Front prime minister Ian Smith was fading from the limelight of world history.  (It is as well that we remember Marxist Robert Mugabe took over the leadership of that little nation now known as Zimbabwe – and is still in power as the Marxists brought the nation and its people to their knees.)

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

AND NOW TO AUSTRALIA AND ITS DEBTS AND BONDAGE

Taken from the original “Story of the Commonwealth Bank” by F.J. Amos, 9th edition:Read the full story by F.J. Amos here….https://alor.org/Library/Amos%20DJ%20-%20Commonwealth%20Bank.pdf Mr. Amos writes:

     “The Story of the Commonwealth Bank” was originally delivered as a lecture before the  Sturt Electoral Committee, Adelaide, and was first printed in pamphlet form in 1931.  It exhibited the usual defect of all lectures, namely, condensation of the subject matter to an extreme degree.  The great and unexpected demand which arose for the pamphlet found me so closely occupied in other work that the second and third editions had to be printed practically unaltered, and I began to be more and more sensible of the need for amplifications and additions.

EXCHANGE ON THE POWER OF BANKS TO CREATE NATION’S MONEY SUPPLY

Interested New Zealanders have been discussing the story which appeared in the New Zealand ‘Herald’ recently:“Bryan Gould: Brash doesn’t seem to understand banking” Friday Apr 28, 2017http://www.nzherald.co.nz/opinion/news/article.cfm?c_id=466&objectid=11845670.

Bill Daly explained:  Brash was NZ Reserve Bank Governor a few years ago. Bryan Gould NZ born was a UK Labour member of parliament at one time and more recently associated with one of the NZ Universities.Accused by Don Brash of “peddling nonsense” Bryan Gould responded:It is no surprise a former Governor of the Reserve Bank should seek to defend the banking system from its critics. But in denying the accuracy of points I made in the Herald about how the banks operate, Don Brash accused me of “peddling nonsense”.

YOU DON’T MODIFY SOMETHING THAT IS FUNDAMENTALLY SOUND By Wallace Klinck, Canada

Often certain advocates of Social Credit, frustrated in their ability to progress in gaining converts and adherents, look for some way of “modernizing” Douglas’s ideas to bring them “up to date” for purposes of gaining public appeal.  Sometimes these proponents of “updating” Social Credit to increase “public acceptance” are sincere, sometimes themselves not clear in their understanding of the meaning and intent of Social Credit policy--and sometimes are agents of disruption intent deliberately upon sabotaging Douglas’s ideas.   My response is as follows:

“Why would you want to modify the Social Credit philosophy and policy?  Social Credit was an idea whose time had come a century ago, when the evermore capital intensive industrial age was effecting profound economic and social change, and has become more relevant and applicable with the passage of time.  You don’t modify something that is fundamentally sound just because people may not understand it.  Reality is reality.  We simply must educate people in an effort to help them come to an understanding of actuality.  We are assisted in this with every replacement of human effort by technology.

Charles Ferguson’s 'The Great News' (1915)

This article stemmed from reading a paper written by an Indian chap on a proposal for a National Dividend for India.  An excellent paper, it has just one small historical error:  from his readings, the chap believed that A.R. Orage coined the term ‘social credit’ which was published in an edition of 'The New Age'. Historically, this was not so, and historical accuracy is important, so this error will be corrected.But it did send me back to Charles Ferguson’s 'The Great News' (1915).

Fellow American Michael Lane researched the life of Charles Ferguson, originally published in Triumph of the Past January to June, 2002 and republished by the Australian Heritage Society as 'Charles Ferguson: Herald of Social Credit'.Bill Daly of the New Zealand League of Rights wrote an Introduction to Michael Lane’s book and had this to say:

MYTHS, LEGENDS AND SPIRITUAL SURVIVAL by Betty Luks October 2007

Ref: http://www.alor.org/NewTimes%20Survey/Myths%20Legends%20and%20Spiritual%20Survival.htmI recently came upon a copy of Sir Edward “Weary” Dunlop’s “War Diaries” published forty years after WWII. Sir Edward was one of Australia’s great heroes. In the foreword British officer, Colonel Sir Laurens van der Post wrote of his brief experiences with the American and Australian soldiers of war, along with the British, in the early days of the Japanese internment and he described prison life as “the war within the War”.

For the first three months and under the inspired leadership of (then) Lieutenant-Colonel Edward Dunlop, an all out effort was made to not only invest the resources available to them for “the physical well being” of the men, and to unite them as of the British-Commonwealth, but a “vast educational system was set up” to cater for their mental and spiritual well being. To aid in their “physical survival and spiritual sanity”, the officers set up schools, classes and lectures, even a microcosm of a *Commonwealth parliament in prison.

A Book Review of Social Credit Economics

In this book review of M. Oliver Heydorn’s book “Social Credit Economics”, Arindam Basu noted:

“As befits his Catholic background, Dr. Heydorn occasionally stresses the Christian philosophy underlying Social Credit. However, as David Astle has shown in his classic work, “The Babylonian Woe”, the battle between the money power and mankind long predates the advent of Christianity. Indeed, it is but one theatre of the age-old struggle between centralization and decentralization, subversion and tradition, monotheism and polytheism, - and in the final analysis, subservience and independence.Or as Lord Acton put it:“The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the people versus the banks.”Seen from this perspective, Social Credit Economics is a most valuable weapon in the people’s arsenal.”

IT IS IN PEACETIME CIVILISATION FAILS

It was in 1926 that C.H. Douglas first wrote, “In war-time, therefore, civilisation does not fail.  It is in peace time that it fails.”  That statement was repeated in August 1940 - found here http://www.alor.org/The%20Social%20Crediter/Volume%204/The%20Social%20Crediter%20Vol%204%20No%2021%20August%203%201940.pdf)

“MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN” by Reducing the World to Ashes? by Felicity Arbuthnot

“In the event of a nuclear war, there will be no chances, there will be no survivors – all will be obliterated… nuclear devastation is not science fiction – it is a matter of fact. The world now stands on the brink of the final abyss. Let us all resolve to take all possible practical steps to ensure that we do not, through our own folly, go over the edge.” Former First Sea Lord, Lord Louis Mountbatten (1900-1979) Strasbourg, 11 May 1979.”

THEFT BY CONVERSION – OR FRAUD?

A discussion taking place among the Social Credit discussion group is centred on the idea that the banking system’s credit creation system (creating money out of thin air) is fraud or theft by conversion? Most of the participants are in America and Canada so the discussion centres around the laws of those two countries.

THEY DIDN’T UNDERSTAND THE PROBLEM ‘Service Not Self’ – C.H. Douglas, 1949

Amongst the more repellent forms of bilge with which the Socialist era is connected, is its claim to represent “Service, not Self.”

We neither forget nor overlook such men as Maurice, Kingsley, Ruskin, and with certain reservations, Keir Hardie. They were good and great men, and their fatal defect (much more fatal than culpable) was that they did not understand the problem with which they wished to deal.
