Thoughts for The Week.
“What you do in your lifetime will echo down through eternity”,
It seems to me at present that ‘the world is going to hell in a hand basket’ and I sometimes have the view that the majority of thinking people, that would have to know it, do not seem to care. Especially our elected leaders. This crisis is occurring on many fronts, for the last forty years I have written hundreds of articles, maybe thousands alerting readers to this gradual demise.
Surely, other thinking people can see, that when we have an escalating war in Europe, in which one of the countries that is involved ‘Russia’ which seventy years ago accepted 26.6 million deaths (both civilian and military) and still kept fighting on to defeat Germany, is not going to give up easily in its war on Ukraine.
As soon as other countries are involved in a War in Europe, War in Asia will follow, as night after day. Like 1939 the world has a couple of ‘elected for life’ tyrants and a vacuum of weak countries waiting to be conquered.
Even worse, in the westernised weak countries like our Australia, that used to have a sense of being a free country, most have accepted that they have the rights of cattle and accept that the carrion of government can feast on their backs at any time. Our leaders have made our Defence Force unfit for purpose.
If we are to survive it would mean massive conscription, but what do enslaved Australian have to fight for in the 21st Century? Will they promise a “Country Fit For Hero’s”, or a “War to End All Wars”, or to stop the country being invaded by illegal immigrant, or a return to a sovereign country, where preference is given to Australian products and our government stops giving its allegiance to the UN and climate change. What ever the promise only the harebrained would believe our political leaders.
It is hard to think the unthinkable, but there comes a time when there’s nothing else for people, like me, who were raised to trust the powers that be, wake up to the realisation that the our national government, regardless of its political flavour at any given moment, is Not benevolent and well-meaning, and does Not try to improve the quality of life, or defend its people. Most people only want the government to leave them alone, while they are being assailed by laws and fines, for example, over a $1000. for not having a seat belt on properly, $300 fine and conviction for having a pocket knife in your glove compartment of the car. Pay $250 for a shooters licence and wait 11 months for them to issue it. Pay $43. for a Permit to Acquire and wait 3 months for Weapons licencing to send it out, or they post it to the wrong address, then its expired go back and pay again. These systems are not just Red Tape they are constructed to belittle the applicant and empower the State. We are treated like prisoners in our own country. Licences for fishing, shooting, boating, fork lift, chainsaws all activities that you can do on your own, or someone else’s private property, which should have nothing to do with anyone, yet the government wants control, all the time night and day.
People like you and me, raised in the understanding that we are free, that we have inalienable rights, and that the institutions of this country should have our best interests at heart, will tend to tie ourselves in knots rather than contemplate the idea those authorities might actually be working against us now. With every passing day it becomes more and more obvious to me that we are no longer being treated as individuals entitled to try and make the most of our lives, but as a barn full of battery hens, just another product to be bought and sold, sold down the river.
Instead of keeping the country safe and well, those entities supposed to function like the nation’s immune system parliament, the institutions of state the civil service, the judiciary, the police, like a cancer have turned on the Australia people instead, and upon the structures that ought to protect us from harm. Like someone suffering from auto-immune disease, our national immune system is now destroying the healthy cells which is to say us, the working tax paying Australian people.
Any country is a fiction when you get right down to it. For continued existence, every country depends on enough of the people who happen to occupy that space, sharing the same idea about where they live. If enough people believe in the existence of Australia and are prepared to give their all to maintain Australia, then Australia prevails. If the day comes when too many have forgotten what Australia once was, or simply don’t care if she exists or not, then Australia is no more. The dry land will still be there, the roads and buildings, but that is all.
If you have been driving yourself almost brainsick in an effort to think the best of our leaders, but finding it increasingly impossible to do so, then the solution to the problem might be to turn your point of view 180 degrees and accept, however unwillingly, that we are now being sold down the river. When you find a stranger’s hand on your wallet, in the inside pocket of your jacket, rather than trying to persuade yourself he’s only making sure it doesn’t fall out, it might be more straightforward to draw the conclusion you’re in the process of being robbed.
Once the cataracts, fall from a person’s eyes, the resultant clarity of sight is briefly overwhelming. It is like being handed a skeleton key that opens every locked door, or access to a Rosetta Stone that translates every word into a language instantly understood, as betrayal.
The Climate Scam
Take the Climate scam, If you’ve felt the blood drain from your face at the prospect of electricity bills rising from hundreds to several thousands of dollars, while reading about energy companies doubling their profits overnight while being commanded to subsidize so-called renewables that are anything but Green while listening to this politician, or that renew their vows to the ruinous fantasies of Net Zero and Agenda 2030 while knowing that the electricity for electric cars comes, in the main and most reliably, from fossil fuels.
If you can’t make sense of it all and just know that it adds up to a future in which you might have to choose between eating and cooling, then treat yourself to the gift of understanding that the powers that be fully intend that we should have less heat and less fuel and that in the planned future only the rich will have cars anyway. Their plan is not to fix it. The plan is to break it, and leave it broken.
Yet in reality Minerals Council Australia, Greg Evans, said 150,000 Australians were employed directly and indirectly by the coal industry, which pays about $6 billion in wages. We have enough Black coal to keep producing for another 125 years at our current rates. Only the USA and Russia has more coal reserves than us.
As an export industry, coal is worth about $40 billion to the economy. For electricity New South Wales is 87 per cent coal, Victoria, 86 per cent and Queensland 65 per cent, so clearly, those major states are heavily reliant on coal for affordable, accessible energy and that has built a lot of our economic prosperity over the past 50 years. Yet our leaders say we have to stop Australia’s 1 % of emissions of carbon dioxide, (calculated and theorised by doubtful green authorities, as we all know that everything that is green on our planet would die without carbon dioxide). Natural emissions from the earth, some beneath seas and ice emit 2% of carbon dioxide one volcano in Iceland ‘Katla’ (is emitting somewhere between 12,000 and 24,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide each day, the researchers report online this week in Geophysical Research Letters). When another country China produces 27% of the world carbon dioxide and will not slacken its usage of coal. A good whack of China’s recent output of CO2 came from burning coal to make our wind turbines and the rest of the vanity projects that let our remotely-controlled leaders spout lies about cutting emissions, but hey never let the facts get in the way of a good global scam. We have to ask why our political masters want us to reduce agriculture, suffer huge electricity bills, huge prices at the petrol bowser to reduce our standard of living?
In 2008, Australia’s oil shale resource was estimated at 4.531 billion metric tons of oil shale equal to 31.7 billion barrels (5.04×109 cubic metres) of shale oil, of which about 24 billion barrels (3.8 billion cubic metres) is recoverable. The deposits are located in the eastern and southern states with the biggest potential in the eastern Queensland deposits and that is besides our deposits of fuel oil. Australia has 44 years of gas left (at current consumption levels and excluding unproven reserves) but exports 95% to China at 5% of the price its sold to the Australian consumer. We used to convert our cars to gas but it became so expensive it was not worth the effort.
If you struggle to think the best of the world’s richest, fatuous, self-obsessed A-list celebrities among them, endlessly circling the planet on private jets and super yachts, so as to attend get-togethers where they might talk pompously to us lowly proles about how we must give up our cars and occasional holiday flights, even meat on the dinner table, if you wonder how they have the unmitigated gall, then isn’t it easier simply to accept that their honestly declared and advertised intention is that their luxurious and pampered lives will continue as before, while we are left hungry, cold and mostly unwashed in our unheated homes. Here’s the rub: if any leader or celeb honestly meant a word of their sermons about CO2 and the rest, then they would obviously lead by example. They would be first of all of us willing to give up international travel altogether, they would downsize to modest homes warmed by heat pumps.
They would eschew all energy but that from the sun and the wind. They would eat, with relish, bugs and plants. They would resort to walking, bicycles and public transport. If Net Zero and the rest was about the good of the planet, and not about clearing the skies and the beaches of scum like us, don’t you think those sainted politicians and A-listers would be lighting the way for us by their own example? If the way of life they preach to us was worth living, wouldn’t they be living it already?
Intentional Food Shortages.
And how about food – and more particularly the predicted shortage of it: the politicians and CEOs blame it all on Vladimir Putin. But if the countries of the world are truly running out of food, why is our government offering farmers millions of dollars to get out of the industry and sell their land to transnational corporations for use, or disuse unknown? Why aren’t we, as a society, doing what our parents and grandparents did during WWII and digging for victory? Why is the government intent on turning a third of our fertile soil over to re-generation programs with schemes that make life better only for the kangaroos and wild pigs?
In Holland where a WEF (World Economic Forum)-infected administration is bullying farmers off their land altogether, forcing them to cull half the national herd. Those Dutch farmers are among the most productive and knowledgeable in the world, holding in their heads and hands the answers to all manner of questions about how best to produce food, and yet their government is so intent on scaring them out of the business that a teenage boy in a tractor, taking part in a protest to defend ancient rights and traditions, was fired on by police.
What makes the government of Holland that has the second most productive population of farmers in the world, attempt to gut and fillet the food producing industry? Why have similar protests, in countries all across Europe and the wider world, been largely ignored by the mainstream media, a media that would have crawled on its hands and knees over broken glass just to report on a Black Lives Matter protester opening a bag of queer licorice allsorts. Why the silence on the attack on farming? While we’re on the subject of farmland ownership, why is computer salesman Bill Gates buying so much farmland in the US – more than a quarter of a million acres in 19 states at the last count, while simultaneously promoting the production and sale of fake meat? Why is this happening to farmers and farming all across the hitherto developed world?
Isn’t the simple obvious answer, the answer that makes most sense and that is staring us in our trusting faces, that power for the power-hungry has always rested most effectively upon control of food and its supply? Might they be calling it a cost-of-living crisis as part of their bare-faced attempt to distract us from the fact that while ordinary individuals face a life and death struggle in the coming months, the corporations have celebrated their share of the greatest transfer of wealth in history? Doesn’t that seem more likely? However unthinkable, might it not be more compelling to ask why our government, and governments around the world, have effectively stood by and held the coats of huge corporations while those money magnets pulled almost all of the world’s wealth into their already creaking coffers?
The War on Cash.
Why are our governments more interested in enabling, in aiding and abetting the rich, than in lifting so much as a finger to protect our livelihoods, our ways of life? I’m only asking. What about the money in our pockets? Why is it getting harder and harder to use good old cash, notes and coins? Why are we being nudged further and further away from spending-power we can see and hold, and towards a digital alternative that exists only on the hard drives of the banks that run the world? Why is that do you think?
We all have found that electronic banking does not work when we have an electrical blackout, or the internet is down, or NBN is down. When our leaders take us to the medieval pit of darkness how will we access our electronic funds? If we are led by figures committed to objectives that are against our national interests, are we even obliged to obey their dictates when they are undoing everything Australia has been, or has to offer for the future? Are the needs and wants of the Australian people to be set aside in favour of the needs and wants of everyone else, anyone else in the world? I ask these questions sincerely.
Since we’re talking about the markets and the banks, we might as well focus on what it’s all about, all of this upset and upheaval, which is control … control of the people via control of our money.
At a time when Australian people are struggling in ways that have been unknown to millions for a very long time, a vast mountain of the money they pay in tax is being shovelled elsewhere. The industrial revolution that was founded on Coal which changed the world for the better and lifted billions of people out of poverty, this latest generation of Australian people is to be punished, diminished, made dependent upon a State that openly despises us and treats us with contempt.
Rather than dismiss as yet another conspiracy theory the idea of cash being ultimately replaced with transactions based on the exchange of what amount to glorified food stamps that will only be accepted if our social credit score demonstrates that we’ve been obedient girls or boys … how about taking the leap and focussing on the blatantly obvious … that if we are not free to buy whatever and whenever we please, free of the surveillance and snooping of governments and the banks that run them, then we have absolutely no freedom at all.
While we’re on the subject of money and banks, why not pause to notice something else that is glaringly obvious, which is to say that the currencies of the West are teetering on the abyss, and that one small bank after another is revealed, to those who are bothering to watch, as being as close to bankruptcy as its possible to be without actually falling over the edge.
The Covid Vaccines.
Then there’s the ‘so-called’ vaccines for Covid, I deliberately say “so-called” because by now it should be clear to all but the wilfully blind that those injections do not work as advertised. Even after being vaccinated you can still contract the virus, still transmit the virus, still get sick and still die. Denmark has dropped their use on under-18s. All across the world, every day, more evidence emerges, however grudgingly, however much the various complicit authorities and Big-Pharma companies might hate to admit it of countless deaths and injuries caused by those medical procedures.
Yet here in Australia and just about everywhere else, governments continue to try and get those needles into as many arms as possible, even the arms of the smallest and youngest. The ripe stink of corruption is everywhere. I trusted authority for most of my life, but never again. Now, I ask myself on a daily basis how I ignored the stench for so long.
In the USA the Biden White house sent the FBI to raid the home of former president Donald Trump. Meanwhile Joe Biden and his son Hunter, he of the laptop fame full of the most appalling and incriminating content, fly together on Air Force One. No raids planned on the Obamas, nor on the Clintons. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi flew to Taiwan and onwards to China. Her son Paul, an investor in a Chinese tech firm and with seats on the board of companies dealing in lithium, was along for the ride, into that part of the world where three quarters of the world’s lithium batteries are made. Taiwan leads in that technology and is the piggy in the middle between China and the USA. It is hard to think the unthinkable. It’s hard to think that all of it, all the misery, all the suffering of the past and to come might just be about money, greed and power. It is hard to tell yourself you’ve been taken for a fool and taken for a ride. It’s hard, but the view from the other side is worth the effort and the pain. Open your eyes and see.
Australian tax payers money … earned by hard-working, struggling working people … is being funneled out of Australia and into the wider world as fast as the leaders can make it flow. To the UN, to prevent rising sea levels in Antarctica. Cynic that I am, I conclude that all possible efforts are being made to impoverish and so destroy once and for all that upstart aspirational middling class whose very existence so infuriates today’s rulers.
There is a line of Latin that goes: “Quis custodiet ipsos custodes”?
It means, who will guard the guards themselves? Those words focus our attention on the situation that arises when people with the power to supervise others are not, themselves, subject to the same scrutiny. It applies also when those who entitle themselves to make the law, also empower themselves to enforce the punishments. That is the definition of tyranny that our constitution was shaped to prevent it. There’s are a dozen Covid enquiries out there. The same people that caused all the harm are now deciding if they did the right thing or not. I think we all know what conclusions they will draw. I ask again, Who will guard the guards themselves?
The police – a citizen police force supposed to protect the Australian public does next to nothing to keep law-abiding citizens safe from real, violent crime and instead monitors what people say on social media. In Victoria they arrested pregnant lady for organising a Vaccination protest. When they’re not being thought police, they either dance the Macarena in the Gay Mardi Gras or join the protests that the State Government likes, or take the baton to those it doesn’t.
So, What Should We Do Now?
Philosopher Thomas Hobbes wrote about how, without observance of right and wrong, human life was, “solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short”. He concluded that such chaos was ended only if individuals agreed, via a social contract, to surrender some liberty to a sovereign on condition that the sovereign would keep them safe. Who is honouring their part of our social contract now? We, the people, have been doing so … not least because, legally, we have no option.
Natural law is summarised in three words: do not steal. It underpins all lawful behaviour. Do not steal the life of another … do not steal the private property of another … do not steal the product of a worker’s labour, which is to say taxation … do not steal a person’s rights. Do not steal. It’s simple. But that simple foundation of lawful society has been set aside for the benefit and enrichment of the few elites. It is interesting to recall the words of the American declaration of independence:
“Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness … that to secure these rights, governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed … that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their Safety and Happiness.”
I say that by their actions over the last many years, our leaders have made the social contract null and void. They are not protecting our freedoms and rights and not protecting Australia itself. They have left Australia defenceless and concentrated all there efforts on disarming the civilian population.
This idea of freedom is not just an American invention it started years before in Britain, as the Americans at that time wanted the same rights as the British.
In the Commentaries Laws of England. By Sir William Blackstone, Knt.,
Formerly One of the Justices of the Court of Common Pleas.
(Adapted to the Present State of the Law, by Robert Malcolm Kerr, Ll.d.,)
Barrister-at-law, Judge of the City of London Court, and One of the Commissioners of the Central Criminal Court.Vol. I.
OF THE RIGHTS OF PERSONS. Fourth Edition.
OF THE ABSOLUTE RIGHTS OF INDIVIDUALS. Page 113 &114 of Blackstone’s Commentaries.
“5. The fifth and last auxiliary right of the subject, that I shall at present mention, is that of having arms for their defence, suitable to their condition and degree, and such as are allowed by law ; which is also declared by the same statute 1 W. & M. st. 2, c. 2, and is indeed a public allowance under due restrictions, of the natural right of resistance and self- preservation, when the sanctions of society and laws are found insufficient to restrain the violence of oppression. In these several articles consist the rights, or, as they are frequently termed, the liberties of Englishmen : liberties, more generally talked of than thoroughly understood ; and yet highly necessary to be perfectly known and considered by every man of rank or property, lest his ignorance of the points whereon they are founded, should hurry him into faction and licentiousness on the one hand, or a pusillanimous indifference and criminal sub-mission on the other. And we have seen that these rights consist, primarily, in the free enjoyment of personal security, of personal liberty, and of private property. So long as these remain inviolate, the subject is perfectly free ; for every species of compulsive tyranny and oppression must act in opposition to one or other of these rights, having no other object upon which it can possibly be employed. To preserve these from violation, it is necessary that the constitution of parliament be supported in its full vigour ; and limits, certainly known, be set to the royal prerogative. And lastly, to vindicate these rights, when actually violated or attacked, the subjects of England are entitled, in the first place, to the regular administration and free course of justice in the courts of law ; next, to the right of petitioning the sovereign and parliament for redress of grievances ;
and, lastly, to the right of having and using arms for self-preservation and defence. And all these rights and liberties it is our birthright to enjoy entire ; unless where the laws of our country have laid them under necessary restraints, restraints in themselves so gentle and moderate, as will appear upon farther inquiry, that no man of sense or probity would wish to see them slackened. For all of us have it in our choice to do everything that a good man would desire to do ; and are restrained from nothing, but what would be pernicious either to
ourselves or our fellow citizens. So that this review of our situation may fully justify the observation of a learned French author, who indeed generally both thought and wrote in the spirit of genuine freedom ; and who has not scrupled to profess, even in the very bosom of his native country, that the English is the only nation in the world where political or civil liberty is the direct end of its constitution. Recommending therefore to the students in our laws a farther and more accurate search into this extensive and important title, I shall close my remarks upon it with the expiring wish of the famous Father Paul to his country,
” ESTO PERPETUA ! (Latin for “let it be perpetual”).
In the meantime, we are not to imagine that the kingdom was left wholly without defence in case of domestic insurrections, or the prospect of foreign invasions. Besides those who by their military tenures were bound to perform forty days’ service in the field, first the assize of arms, enacted 27 Hen. II., and afterwards the statute of Winchester, under Edward I., obliged every man, according to his estate and degree, to provide a determinate quantity of such arms as were then in use, in order to keep the peace: and constables were appointed in all hundreds by the latter statute to see that such arms were provided. These weapons were changed by the statute 4 & 5 Ph. & M. c. 2, into others of more modern service.”
Every day and more and more, of those calling themselves our leaders are stealing everything. They look us in the eye and steal from us. During the lock downs they stole our rights and liberties … they stole the livelihoods of millions … they stole mental and physical well being. They stole the way things used to be. They are stealing the futures we had planned for our children. They are working in league with others to remove those rights and freedoms and to unmake Australia. If they will not honour the social contract, then why should we?
While we were distracted our governments assumed outrageous powers over us, body and mind we are being crushed and numbed.
This is November the time of remembrance, when we claim … claim to honour the ancestors who gave the last full measure of devotion to protect this country and see it handed on intact to future generations:
“When you go home, tell them of us and say … For your tomorrow, we gave our today.”
Those words are graven in stone all over this country.
The time for accepting all of this has long passed. Today’s leaders have no loyalty to Australians or Australia, none that I can see. Maybe a few still FEEL some loyalty, but are just too demoralised or scared of their political party to declare it, far less to do anything about it. Whatever loyalties the rest of them have, on both sides of the aisle … they lie elsewhere, not honestly declared.
For one thing, they are All loyal to those entities that DO make all the meaningful decisions, which is to say the markets and the banks.
Here’s the thing: where should OUR loyalties lie now? With those who by their actions have made plain they respect us not a jot?
… or with each other, those who have seen through the lies and the transparent grasping for power and control.
On this Remembrance weekend I would honour those who gave their lives for a free world and a country called Australia.
“There is no Spring without Winter, without Mistakes there is no Learning. There is no Life without Death, without Doubts there is no Faith. There is no Peace without War, without Fear there is no Courage. For without Mistakes, Doubts and Fears there are no pathways to Wisdom.”
