“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…”
“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
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?”
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.
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”.
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.
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:
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.
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 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)
As the world forces bring us once more to the brink of war, this time a devastating nuclear war, it is worth considering his message written so long ago:
Source: Global Research, April 18, 2017 In-depth Report: Nuclear War
“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.”
I am reminded of Wallace Klinck’s response to a fellow Canadian who was defending Christians’ involved in ‘many good works’ within their communities.
Wallace’s words speak for themselves:
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.
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.
“I am certainly not here as a moralist; but as an engineer. I have an appreciation of the importance of foundations. I find it incredible that a stable society can persist founded on the most colossal lucrative fraud that has ever been perpetrated on society”. - - C. H. Douglas, 1936 THE STUDENT ECONOMIC REVIEW VOL. XXVIIIntroduction, Senior SophisterMONETARY THOUGHT
The name of Clifford Hugh Douglas (or Major Douglas, as he was more commonly known) will not be familiar to many students of economics, but the economic writings of this engineer are of great relevance in coming to terms with what Keynes (1936: 371) labelled ‘the outstanding problem of our economic system’: the problem of deficient demand.
Young people want, rightly, to change the world. But how might this be properly done? Dr Jonathan Haidt recently contrasted Truth University with Social Justice University. Social Justice U has as its advantage the call to social transformation. In this video, I outline why Truth is the proper route to societal improvement -- and why that starts with the individual.Note: Free Future Authoring Code Expires December 7th, 2016Link to Jonathan Haidt’s article on Truth U vs Social Justice U: http://heterodoxacademy.org/2016/10/2...Link to http://www.selfauthoring.com/future-a...Link to reading list: http://jordanbpeterson.com/2016/11/ma...Link to paper on Future Authoring: http://www.palgrave-journals.com/arti...Support this Channel with Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=3019121 Want to support this channel?Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/jordanbpetersonSelf Authoring: http://selfauthoring.com/Jordan Peterson Website: http://jordanbpeterson.com/Podcast: http://jordanbpeterson.com/jordan-b-p...Reading List: http://jordanbpeterson.com/2017/03/gr...Twitter: https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson
Having recently designed and constructed a rainwater reticulation system for our home, we saw many instances of “designed obsolescence” which resulted in “environmental vandalism”. Perfectly functional components, which we still had from previous water projects, were no longer suitable, nor interchangeable with the new standard, so were rendered obsolete. Wall thicknesses of the pipes were also changed so they were also rendered obsolete. What a waste, and all because the financial system is inherently flawed and will not allow us, as the community, the ability to purchase what we make.The manufacturer reduces the life cycle of his products in order to sell more - whether we want them or not.
As others have said, the farmer grows a ton of potatoes but does not create the money needed to buy them. So it is with all manufacturers and producers.This policy of engineered obsolescence has been going on for a long time. Douglas wrote about it one hundred years ago in his books Economic Democracy, The Monopoly of Credit, and Social Credit, calling it "economic sabotage". In 1963 Jas. Guthrie wrote about it in his article Planned Obsolescence or the Death Date in The Social Crediter. In his article he makes reference to the well-documented book The Waste Makers (Pelican, 1963, First published in USA 1960). We present the article now for your interest.
Listened to Mark Latham's first Facebook broadcast here: https://www.facebook.com/MarkLathamsOutsiders I found his reference to Gough Whitlam's concept of 'free speech' and multiculturalism really 'grinding'. Readers need to recall the Fabian's agenda to change the culture of this country. Little Bobby Hawke outlined their plans in his address to the Fabian Society's Centenary Dinner in 1984. Found here.....http://www.alor.org/Library/Hawke%20RJ%20-%20Address%20to%20the%20Fabian%20Society%20.html Instead of praising Gough Whitlam and Bob Hawke, I think Mark should apologise to the Australian people on behalf of Labor for causing such chaos to this nation.
Ref: http://socialcredit.com.au/social-credit-angles/entry/77-the-death-pledgeYou should probably know that the literal meaning of mortgage is ‘death pledge’. According to the Australian debt clock we owe 1,647,386,800,000 dollars to banks as housing debt. It's about 90% of all household debt in this country and it is accumulating faster than GDP. In its March 2017 Monetary Policy Meeting the Reserve Bank noted that household debt was rising faster than household income.
It is usually the public’s want of restraint that is blamed for the worsening private debt problem; hedonistic public needs to tighten its belt and stop living beyond its means. Bad, pampered public. Mainstream reporting on Australia’s private debt level goes out of its way to avoid making clear one crucial aspect of what is driving it. This money that people are borrowing is required to run the economy. We have explored in detail how the money we use everyday is created by banks when people borrow. The primary concern of finance is how to induce people to borrow enough money to keep the economic system jerking along. The fact is if we didn’t borrow so much money we’d be berated for lack of faith (confidence in financial terms) and the economic pundits would be decrying the next round of crisis, depression, recession, downturn or whatever word their employer's banker told them to use.
