The Colonial Bloke

Message from Terra Nova:
1-hour

G’day. There is more than one Reserve Bank upon this continent.
 
In 2005 a bloke born in Adelaide answered the door, and a Sheriff gave him some court papers. It was the last time he saw his kids, who he’d raised himself when they were babies, so he gave up Australian Citizenship by filing documents at Government House, tore up his ATM card and Centrelink papers, threw his mobile phone in the bin. He didn’t need a job, because he stomped onto Crown Land in Smithfield. He pitched a small tent, and pulled a battery and printer out of his knapsack, and printed 20 books, then sold them.
2 days later he printed 20 more books…
 
In 2008 a Government bloke knocked on the flap of the tent, “I’m moving you on…”
 
“It’s Crown Land, and I’ve been here 480days.”
 
The bloke caught the train to Adelaide, saw the Crown Solicitor, then stopped off at Government House to deliver Her Majesty his gold, stamps, and real money; because 9feet under his tent he’d dug a Mason’s Lodge using a chisel.
 
10 weeks later, the bloke still lives on Crown Land, and the Government guy is gone.
 
Was the bloke the first bloke to print real money legally? No.
 
The 1 Hour Note shown above honours Josiah Warren, a successful inventor who in 1827 started a small shop. Josiah was richer than his customers, so he got an idea…
 
He legally printed ‘1hour’ notes, and priced his goods by the time it took workers to make them. He also got paid by his time alone: so people shopped faster, to pay less.
 
Josiah got 4times more people in his shop than other shopkeepers, so other shops joined in. Then manufacturers began to pay their workers with Hour notes, so everybody became equally rewarded. If they went shopping in another town, they had problems trading Hour notes for USdollars; they got taxed.
 
Josiah was a real ‘Labor Man’, not a phoney. In those days, income tax was illegal (and still is in the USA) , but Josiah wasn’t called a ‘Labor Man’, they called him an Anarchist, a danger to society. Would Australian Labor leaders be worth $100million if we used Hour notes? No.
 
Why are the Guinea, florin and shilling notes shown above real and legal?
 
It’s because the bloke on Crown Land uses that land to earn the ‘old money’-Commonwealth Dollars. Then he backs those notes with gold nuggets, and gives the nuggets to our Queen. The notes are certificates that certify that fact, and are so legal tender.
 
If there’s a problem, it’s that a shilling is worth 5pence, but costs perhaps $5. The bloke doesn’t want what it cost him ($5); he wants to use it on Crown Land to conduct a 5pence trade without paying tax. If the shilling goes ‘round and around’ on Crown Land, it’s OK.
 
What happens if a person outside Crown Land gets a shilling? He wants 5bucks for it, or he sells it to a coin dealer for much more, because the note is rare… The bloke on Crown Land lives on less than 6bucks a day, but he won’t sell his real money to a coin dealer.
 
Perhaps there is a way to keep value of real money stable, by thinking carefully. Could both  Real Socialism and Real Capitalism be served at the same time by earning Hour notes and buying goods with Guineas? Ask a legal chap what he thinks, because in South Australia, these notes do legally exist on Crown Land. The people who deny the bloke access to his children don’t make a cent out of it, the people who legally aborted their brothers and sisters don’t make a cent out of it either. Josiah Warren fed his kids, ALL of them, and he didn’t pay tax; he earned the same as everybody else, and all their kids lived with a full belly.

The Black Sheep

If you have been following world events, then you must be aware of the pro-Israel lobby influencing/controlling US politics, and we all know that all U.S Presidential candidates have to suck up to AIPAC, ADL and Co.

Here in Australia these matters are a bit more transparent, so when we hear Howard or Rudd07 receiving rewards, having forests in Israel named after them, or celebrating 60 years of hostile occupation and genocide then we may raise an eyebrow. What is our relationship with Israel, why are we so committed to supporting one of the most notorious human rights violators? Have you asked yourself, why?, if not then look into life in Palestine ? Maybe then, like Julia Irwin, your conscience will sway your blind alliance.

PM lauds Israel, but urges peace

KEVIN Rudd praised Israel’s democratic achievements as parliament yesterday commemorated Israel’s 60th anniversary and stressed the need for an independent and economically viable Palestinian state .

The House of Representatives passed with bipartisan support a government motion marking the anniversary in May, with only Labor backbencher Julia Irwin abstaining from the vote in a protest at human rights abuses by Israel.

The motion left Labor bitterly divided, with Ms Irwin and several affiliated left-wing unions attracting savage criticism for using the occasion to attack Israel.

The Prime Minister was briefly interrupted as he commenced his speech by a female protester in the public gallery who shouted, “What about the UN resolution?”, before being escorted from the house. Mr Rudd said that while Israel’s history had been marked by bloodshed, there had been signs of hope.

He paid tribute to former Labor prime minister Ben Chifley and foreign minister Bert Evatt for their roles in helping to establish the state of Israel.

“The 60 years since the establishment of Israel have been full of challenges and full of trials,” Mr Rudd said. “Similarly the process of the emergence of a Palestinian state has come along a tortuous path – there has been too much bloodshed.”

Brendan Nelson said Australians should remember the freedoms for which Israelis had fought. “In a region of the world that is characterised more by theocracies or autocracies, Israel and the state of Israel is the custodian of the most fragile and yet powerful of human emotions,” the Opposition Leader said. “That is hopeful belief in the freedom of man, freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom of assembly.”

ACTU secretary Jeff Lawrence and Australian Workers Union chief Paul Howes dissociated themselves from left-wing colleagues who put their names to an advertisement in The Australian yesterday condemning the bipartisan motion.

Mr Lawrence said individual unions were entitled to their views, but the ACTU did not endorse the advertisement’s claims that Israel’s anniversary celebrated “the triumph of racism and the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians”, or that Israel had poisoned the West’s relations with “the whole of the Arab and Muslim world”.

“We have tried to take a balanced position that supports the right of Israel to exist and a negotiated settlement for the establishment of a Palestinian state,” Mr Lawrence said.

Mr Howes went further, saying he could not understand how Ms Irwin or any of his union colleagues could “line up in support of Hamas”.

Among those endorsing the anti-Israel advertisement were the Construction Forestry Mining and Energy Union and the Maritime Union of Australia. Individuals included former Labor MP Margaret Reynolds and South Australian Democrat Sandra Kanck.

Ms Irwin told The Australian she could not “congratulate a nation which commits human rights abuses each day and shows blatant disregard for the UN”.

Ms Irwin said at least 10 of her ALP colleagues and four Coalition parliamentarians had congratulated her on her stand.

Mythbusters: ten sorry excuses exploded

by Chris Graham
There’s nothing like a little ‘sorry’ debate to get white Australia all red and puffy. Here’s a punter’s guide to exploding 10 of the more virulent myths surrounding a national apology to members of the Stolen Generations:

It was done by a previous generation.
Not correct. Of all the Stolen Generations myths, this is the biggest. If it were “previous generations”, then surely there’d be no-one left to apologize to? The facts are that the removal of Aboriginal children continued well into the 1960s and early 1970s. It’s worth noting it was absolutely raging during the late 1950s, when a small, lispy man named John Howard was serving as president of the NSW Young Liberals.

Saying sorry won’t deliver better results in health, housing or education.
Here’s a surprising revelation for you — saying sorry is not supposed to deliver health, housing and education. Equally, saying sorry won’t prevent governments from delivering health, housing and education. This particular objection is perhaps the dumbest of them all and is run by conservatives like Warren Mundine, Noel Pearson and The Australian. Its fundamental flaw is that it relies on the premise that Australia is so backward as a nation we can’t deliver practical outcomes while simultaneously delivering symbolic gestures. In other words, we can’t walk and chew gum at the same time.

I will not be made to feel guilt and shame for something I didn’t do.
In the case of younger Australians who were not alive during the removal practices, the word ‘Sorry’ does not have to be an expression of shame or guilt. It can be an expression of empathy, as in ‘I’m sorry to hear your mum died’ or ‘I’m sorry you got hurt in that car accident’. Personally, I was born in 1972 when government started to abandon the removal policies. I don’t feel shame at my personal actions, but I do feel shame at the actions of my country. As for older Australians, many claim ‘I had nothing to do with it’. Well, that’s part of the problem – bad things happen when good people stay silent. The point is not that older Australians participated in the removal process, but that they did nothing to stop it. Saying ‘But I didn’t know it was happening’ is certainly more than sufficient to keep you out of a court of law, but it’s not enough to excuse you from a collective national apology. If you’re still confused on this front, you might recall that several years ago, John Howard apologized to Vietnam Veterans for their treatment when they returned from the war. Again, having been born in 1972, I didn’t mistreat Vietnam Veterans. But I had absolutely no problem with the PM saying sorry to them on my behalf, because I am sorry (and I ashamed for my nation) that they were treated so poorly.

Some Aboriginal leaders have said an apology is not important.
Sure, but almost every one of them (hi Warren, hi Noel!) are not members of the Stolen Generations. Their views on whether or not an apology is warranted are no more or less relevant than your or my view… because none of us are victims.

Aboriginal people can’t even agree on an apology.
Wow, Aboriginal people have this amazing thing called ‘independent thought’. The facts are that some members of the Stolen Generations don’t want an apology. That’s their right. But the overwhelming majority do. That’s also their right.

It costs us nothing.
Contrary to popular opinion, a national apology will have no legal affect on the capacity of members of the Stolen Generations to seek compensation. As a nation, an apology costs us nothing. Period.

I didn’t do it!
No, you didn’t. But you certainly benefited from it. Just as all Australians today, even some black Australians (hi Noel, hi Warren!) have directly benefited from the theft of Aboriginal land, all Australians have benefited from the removal of Aboriginal children. Why? Because almost all children who were removed to government institutions were then forced to work for the government or private citizens for little or no pay. In America, they called that process slavery. In Australia, we called it ‘apprenticeships’.
In December 2006, both the federal parliament released a report supported by the ALP and the Liberals acknowledging the stolen wages scandal.

The people who performed the removals were good people who did a bad thing.

Big f-cking deal. Good people do bad things all the time, but that doesn’t mean they’re excused from apologising.

It won’t affect white Australia, so why worry?

The removals practice AND the use of this issue by John Howard as a race wedge is a stain on white Australia’s recent past. Just as Aboriginal people need an apology to move on, white Australia needs to apologise to move on.

Saying sorry won’t change the past.
Sadly, it won’t. But it will have a massive impact on the future. That’s the whole point. A real apology will mean an enormous amount to Aboriginal people. I still can’t fathom what sort of a nation would deny them one.

The Death of Stalinism in Bohemia

by Jan Svankmayer
The Death of Stalinism in Bohemia begins with the scene of an exploding building, and then deals with such precisely epoch-making political events as the “Liberation from Fascism” in 1945, the “February affair” in 1948, the “thaw” after the mid-1950s, the “Prague Spring” in 1968, the “normalization” after 1969 and the “Velvet Revolution” in 1989. The last event thus represents the “death” of Stalinism in the film. Stalinism imported from the Soviet Union became the state’s political system in 1948, when the Communist Party came to power under the leadership of Klement Gottwald. In the film this event is depicted in an exceedingly impressive manner: a stone bust of Stalin is laid on an operating table, and a surgeon cuts open its face to reveal innards from which is plucked a second smaller bust of Gottwald, covered in blood. Gottwald’s bust is slapped and the first cry of a newborn baby resounds. This “birth” of Gottwald is accompanied by the implantation of Stalinism. In the film the bust of the Czech Communist Party leader is seen actually making a Stalinist speech, during which historic documentary footage of cheering crowds is intercut. The images in this sequence imply that both Gottwald and, apparently, his countrymen enthusiastically embraced the adoption of Soviet Stalinism for the Czech nation, a political change that determined the course of Czech history for the next forty years: the four decades covered in episodes that follow in the film. more

Vatican Assassins

The purpose of the expose’ of the Twentieth Century is to prove the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, ordered by the Jesuit General and executed by Pope Paul VI, was carried out by “the American Pope”, Francis Cardinal Spellman. Spellman, being the Archbishop of New York, was “the American Military Vicar” and therefore used his most obedient soldiers – certain Knights of Malta, Shriner Freemasons, Knights of Columbus and Mafia Dons – in carrying out his orders from Rome.

For challenging the Pope’s Temporal Power, in attempting to thwart Rome’s grand design against the peoples of the world, John F. Kennedy, America’s first Roman Catholic President, was brutally murdered in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963, by the soldiers of Francis Cardinal Spellman within the FBI, the CIA, the Secret Service, Military Intelligence and the Mafia.

On September 11, 2001 this same Intelligence Network, overseen by New York Archbishop Edward Cardinal Egan being under the supervision of Jesuit General Peter-Hans Kolvenbach, attacked and destroyed the Twin Towers of New York’s World Trade Center and partially destroyed the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. These acts of high treason against the American People have now justified our present Crusade against Islam, surnamed “the war against terrorism”, and heartily endorsed by the Pope’s Masonic Jewish Zionists to the detriment of the beloved, racially Jewish People in Israel. This “war on terrorism” is to the exclusion of notorious Jesuit-trained terrorists and mass murderers such as Fidel Castro of communist Cuba and Gerry Adams of Ireland’s Irish Republican Army. Why?

Third Reich and WW2

An assembly of footage of times past than a documentary. It shows everything from the ‘Kraft Durch Freude’ holiday colonies, bombed out London, the Eastern front, N. Africa, to the USA (rare pictures of the American Bund included)…
It is basically like looking into a looking glass back to those horrible years thanks to rare film often taken secretly, much of which hasn’t been seen before.

Body Count

“Body Count” is a carefully researched book by a 4 decade career biological scientist on a key social parameter “avoidable mortality” (excess death, deaths that should not have happened) which is nevertheless largely ignored by Mainstream media and for good reason – the post-1950 global avoidable mortality totals about 1.3 billion. Even in the United States, the richest country in the World, it can be estimated from publicly available UN demographic data that 0.14 million under-5 year old American infants have died avoidably over the last 7 years due to the warped Bush Administration priorities of international wars (that have so far caused 3.4 million excess deaths in the Occupied Iraqi and Afghan Territories alone, mostly of Women and Children) rather than of addressing urgent domestic priorities such as infant and maternal health

(a) summarizes, tabulates and analyzes avoidable mortality for every country in the world since 1950;

(b) uniquely provides a succinct and systematically organized history of every country in the world coupled with key avoidable mortality statistics (a fabulous resource for students, scholars, journalists and human rights activists);

(c) a systematic analysis of the actual causes of excess death in the world (noting that 16 million people die avoidably in the world every year, this including 10 million under-5 avoidable infant deaths); and

(d) finally, sets out a brief and systematic series of practical suggestions for halting the First World-complicit global avoidable mortality holocaust.

Peace is the only way but Silence kills and Silence is complicity. We are obliged to INFORM others about abuses of Humanity.
