Australia's Blueprint for Economic Development
This special issue of the New Citizen is an expanded form of our February 2002 Special Report, The Infrastructure Road to Recovery: Let's Build Our Way Out of the Depression! Since then, the Synarchy (Sin'-ar-kee—the financial oligarchy) has continued to loot Australia, its citizens, and its infrastructure, and so to destroy any hope for a better future for ourselves, and for our children and grandchildren. Everything that we said then is even more right today, and more urgent. Our health system has continued to disintegrate, not to mention the waiting time before you can even manage to get into the hospital. We are facing the worst water crisis in 100 years, because we never developed adequate water supplies. Our education is a joke: Leaving aside its poor quality, what young person without wealthy parents can afford a uni degree often costing $100,000 or more? And, with the exception of the Alice to Darwin line and a couple of smaller State projects, our railroad system has continued to disintegrate. Already in 1998, the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Communications, Transport and Microeconomic Reform of the Federal Parliament found that "Without urgent and substantial investment in this infrastructure, major sections of the national rail network are likely to become irretrievable within ten years." That was eight years ago, and little has been done. Our power supplies—now largely deregulated—are grossly inadequate for a modern nation, often subjecting us to blackouts, brown-outs, or power restrictions like a Third World nation.
The Way Out
This New Citizen proposes a well thought-out, inspiring vision of what our nation could be, and, indeed, must be, if it is to survive. What is the likelihood of that vision actually coming true, you might ask? There are two answers to that. First, if you just sit on your bum and don't organise with the Citizens Electoral Council to make it happen, then obviously it never will. But second, this vision can not be implemented within Australia alone. The Synarchy has fostered globalisation worldwide in order to loot and destroy nation states. Their power now is such that there is only one hope to defeat them, and that depends upon the titanic political battle now being fought in the United States, between the Synarchy and those forces in both the Democratic and Republican parties allied with economist and statesman Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr. The globalists here, such as Howard, and Labor as typified by Beazley, are mere puppets for Tony Blair and Cheney/Bush. When the big boys in London and Washington go, their toadies here can be defeated as well. For historical reasons elaborated within, the U.S. is a unique nation on this planet by virtue of the way it was founded, as dedicated to the General Welfare of all its citizens—as specified in the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution—for which purpose the control of banking and credit was vested in the hands of the U.S. Congress, the elected representatives of the people. In Europe, in Australia and in most other nations, a private banking cabal controls the central bank and thus all credit. Private banker-controlled parliamentary governments like our own are mere puppets for such cabals. In his March 2, 2006 speech in Berlin, Germany and in his January 19, 2006 article, Deficits As Capital Gains: How to Capitalise a Recovery, LaRouche outlines the strategy for victory over the Synarchy. He also outlines an extraordinary vision for the future of this planet for the next fifty years. We either fight alongside LaRouche, or we face a planetary New Dark Age. The choice is indeed that stark, as you will see.
