To all who care about truth, reality, and the survival of life on earth.

I would like also to include in this dedication those who assisted in the writing of this book but to whom, because of the nature of the work, the old saying 'no names no pack drill' applies.

This work would be far less readable without the help of those proof- reading, advising and otherwise helping to bring my amateur writing to a more acceptable standard, nor would it be of much consequence without the help of those sending in a mountain of literature.


This is an amazing book! Some readers claim it frightening, others say it rests on theories of 'dark conspiracies', but all find astonishing revelations about Australia's recent political history.

Although many thousands of copies have been sold, and the book is now in its second edition, no response has been made to the author's invitation to challenge its truth.

How many members (from all parties) are in Federal Parliament contrary to the express provisions of the Constitution? How many Australians understand their system of government? How many politicians fail to represent their constituents? How many electors know the protection provided for by the constitution? How many know the value of their heritage? To what extent do treaties with other countries impact on the rights of Australians?

Treaties like the Economic and Social Covenant and the Civil and Political Covenant. Conventions eliminating all forms of discrimination on the grounds of race and sex, and agreements prohibiting compulsory work for unemployment benefits (forced labour) already exist. A Declaration relating to the freedom of religion is under consideration for preparation as a Convention and a Declaration relating to local government is in process. How many Australians understand the extent to which these treaties bring Australia under international supervision and control?

The Australia Act purports finally to establish Australia's total independence and, thus, to place U.K. citizens on the same footing as any other 'foreigner'. If section 44 of the Constitution and the Australia Act are enforced many politicians will be forced out of parliament.

This hook is a key to understanding the contemporary political history of Australia. It should be studied carefully by every Australian.

When you read it, draw your own conclusions. Your future, and the future of this great land, might depend on it.

ONCE UPON A TIME a rather innocent young woman complained to her doctor of sickness in the mornings.

The doctor mentioned a growth that a small operation could remove. Had the young woman known what the growth was, she and her husband would rather have killed the doctor than their unborn child. More unfortunate, after the abortion she was unable to conceive again.

Now that may sound rather like the beginning of a Grimm's Fairytale, but sadly, although the story of Democracy and Treason in Australia, is grim, it is no fairytale. The political parties entice us to an abortion of the 'embryo democratic' and if the planned abortion is allowed to proceed it will be no less a disaster to our future as a people or as a nation.

We live in a Democracy! A free country! Such comments are commonly made with a wry smile - sarcasm is commonplace. There must be very few Australians today who really believe that the common definition of Democracy (supreme power of government vested in the people) applies to Australia.

In fact the government of Australia is little more democratic than the government of the USSR. Our main advantage is that the bureaucracy is not yet military and if enough Australians knew the situation we would still have the power to change. To begin that change let us first replace the common definition of what constitutes a democracy with something more specific.

The three imperatives of democracy are:

1. public authority over political decisions;

2. national control the money supply;

3. national affairs free of external instruction.

Our present Constitution does provide for these but we, the people, are not told. Has ANY political party EVER campaigned for ANY of them?

NEVER! They have suppressed the first to sell us out on the second and third. What can we do?

Just as the great Judge Sir Edward Coke stood up to King James I and said, You may not rule this country by proclamations out of your head ... you only have the power which the law gives you ... so we Australians have to stand up to the political parties.

We have to say to them, "You are not authorized to exercise the power of life or death over us, you are not authorized to change the nature of our culture so as to suit your own ambitions. The Australian Constitution does not allow political parties a mandate to rule, nor are the Courts entitled to interpret the Constitution so as to make us subservient to overseas agents at your demand."

We have to say to them, "Such actions are in contempt of our people and heritage and are either acts of treason or of certifiable stupidity."

We can influence our future! We do not need sell our souls to foreign despots. This nation is ours and contains everything we need for prosperity. But freedom and prosperity must be earned; these blessings are not given to us by others!

How can we regain our self-respect?

We have to face up to our past mistake of expecting others to look after us at their expense. Human nature is not like that.

A factual knowledge of human nature is essential to any sorting out of the massive misinformation thrust on us today, it is difficult to make any realistic assessment of our situation without that base. My own investigations of human and worldly nature began in childhood so I am not easily surprised by events and attitudes, but some public attitudes are disconcerting.

One such disconcerting attitude is the unhealthy apathy toward the evidence of world conspiracy by people who know that conspiracy is, and always has been, almost as common to the human as the common cold.

As Abraham Lincoln said:

When we see a lot of framed timbers, different portions of which we know have been gotten out at different times and places by different workmen, and when we see these timbers joined together and see that they exactly make the frame of a house ... we find it impossible not to believe that they all understood one another from the beginning, and all worked upon a common plan . . .

A second puzzle is that people so easily accept disbelief when it comes to facing up to dangers generated by those with a fanatical greed for PERSONAL POWER. Here is a helpful quote from The Hidden Hand by A. Ralph Epperson:

Those who seek power will be corrupted by it. They will be willing to intentionally cause depressions, revolutions and wars in order to further their desire for more power. :b This corrupting nature of the very pursuit of power explains why the moral mind of the individual who neither desires power over others nor understands the desire for such power, cannot fathom why power-seekers would want to create human misery through wars, depressions and revolutions. [E.A.]

In other words, the conspirators are successful because the moral citizen cannot accept the conclusion that other individuals would actually wish to create incredibly destructive acts against their fellow citizens.

A third cause of frustration is a common attachment to either capitalism or communism that prevents many people from accepting what should be patiently obvious, that these ideologies work as a nut-cracker toward the goal of destroying our present culture and setting up enslavement on behalf of a world-wide Super Mafia type of organization.

So I hope that the reader, if only from a sense of self-preservation, will make an effort to take an open mind to information in this book.

Among ideas implanted by brainwashers is the idea that we should fill the mind with pleasant thoughts and be happy, but would it not be better to be torn limb from limb than to go through life with no soul to feel the distress of another soul - no eyes to see injustice - no ear to hear the cry of distress - no will to make things right.

Let us pity the wise monkeys (so acclaimed) who see no evil, hear no evil - who live in dreams; their God, whoever they may imagine God to be, will, in the end, not know them. Will say, "I never knew you." for 'in reality' they deny themselves the feelings of life and evade life's responsibilities.

In short, when we truly know life, then we truly know that we have an obligation to it and that the ultimate success of our own life depends on our success in performing this duty.

That is the nature of life. If we know life then the cause of the so-called 'public apathy' is not so difficult to find. It is that a great proportion of Australians are already confused in their ability to read effectively and understand their world. They blindly follow blindly chosen leaders.

We have been indoctrinated by educators to the belief that we are no more than animals caught up in a life without future or purpose, as a result we tend to seek that which is futile and self-destructive.

We have a growing list of young suicides and mass media has to be careful when reporting not to trigger a follow-the-leader (lemming-like) self destruction. But of course the power-seeking mass media only exercises this self-restraint to a minimum because mass media is a vampire living off the death and destruction it so eagerly reports.

The obvious suicides are only the 'tip of the iceberg'; the majority of distressed minds prefer to destroy themselves by means of drugs and reckless living. Quite plainly it is the fundamental nature of humanity that is under attack, an attack so merciless and devoid of compassion that we may think those who plan it must be alien to our planet. However, our enemies are simply people who have been made incomprehensible by generations hooked on the drug of personal power-seeking.

So before getting down to the serious work let us recall a well established fact that was long ago put into words by Disraeli, Governments do not govern, but merely control the machinery of government, being themselves controlled by the hidden hand.

The question we have to decide is who will own the hidden hand tomorrow; will it be the hand of the electorate using the heritage of our present Constitution, or the hand of the power fanatics who must continually progress to greater and greater atrocities to satisfy their uncontrollable lusts? d&da01.htm
