Another post that keeps getting deleted?

Now that the Japanese have been stopped from Whaling? {2013]


Now it might be time to instead of being seen for hypocrites Australian's should also start to question the live cattle and sheep trade which set up against the whaling business makes the cruelty of Japanese Whaling look quite innocuous by comparison! Because the live cattle and sheep trade into the middle-east, Indonesia and elsewhere is brutal beyond all imagination. Particularly for a so-called white, progressive, middle-class first-world nation like Australia. Our farmers need to literally take stock and not be so persuaded by the easy profits of condemning animals into inhumane, non-ritualized barbarism. They are no longer the main stay of this country and should no longer be allowed to pre-dominate over country and city by way of unchallenged farming traditions and privileges.

We must also begin to question the practices of our own indigenous native peoples too with their own kinds of horrific animal carnage these are allowed to practice under the policy of 'native integrity for the noble savage'.
Sadly the sort of thing being practised upon much of our native wildlife by Australia's first peoples in various tribal communities is just that -ugly, backward, stone-age animal cruelty coming from peoples whom are at least within the top 5% in many cases when it comes to Australia's richest, most well educated sector. They are no longer stone-age or pre-industrial age they now are very much integrated into modern post-industrial society as Lawyers, Doctors, Artists, Writers, Musicians, highly paid Athletes, Scientists, Educators, Media personalities, Actors, Miners, Tradesmen/Women, Bankers, Bakers, Ballet Dancers, Politicians, Academics. Unless they choose not to be.

It’s time for them to also instead of just berate others but to take responsibility for their own attitudes and practices toward Australia's animal wild-life, not just with words or ceremony but through practice.

#One of my earliest memories relate to the year of 1971-72 where as a small child I happened to watch on the recently introduced Kalgoorlie television service a piece about the new sport of big time surfing on the island of Maui and the gigantic waves and wipe-outs which various surfers undertook, and included along with this focus on world water adventures was some very disturbing footage of the way the Japanese lured dolphins into a bay in the small town of Taichi whereby they basically hacked them into bloody slaughter with knifes. It was some amazing footage to witness at that time and surely if there is a case for whales to be saved from Japanese butchery then one could just as easily make such a case against this fairly brutal practice too perhaps?




The japanese and their Whaling [a little essay that keeps getting deleted for some odd reason. I wonder why?]

JAPAN AND WHALING [first written in 2002]

Recently the Japanese have been exposed as the world’s worst over-fishing predators in terms of their tuna catch not being compliant to signatory obligations pertaining to the world fishing regulatory council, in that they have been allowing over the last twenty years an unrepresentative figure far and above what they should be importing into japan. And this has largely been disguised and allowed to go ahead by western nations in full compliance. Why? The Japanese have now eclipsed America as the world’s leading car maker and exporter. Even within America itself, Japanese brands rule what people buy. Interesting? Within the very nation that identifies freedom and liberty largely through the car, of which much of Americas nationalism revolves round, Ford, G. M. Holden, as well other brands. Now relegated as inferior brands to Toyota, Honda, Suzuki and others.

No doubt the Japanese make better more reliable cars. But are there other reasons? Some may say that the Japanese have far less barriers to doing business in the west than they give to outsiders that may seek to do business in japan. For instance American car-makers must pay into retirement funds and other for their workers that Japanese car manufacturers even though these maybe based within the u.s. are not obligated to do. Even more recently we have had symbolic world remembrance for what happened to them in WWII, with large gatherings of people in various cities uniting along with various Japanese to speak for peace and 'no more nuclear' banners being held high etc. Nothing of what the Japanese did from that time.

 Things to be remembered, things to be forgotten. Millions of Chinese put to death, as well other south-east Asian people's, thousands of enslaved British soldiers, many carpet bombed and bloodied cities and states throughout the pacific region [oddly hushed up to preserve Japanese-Aust trade relations is the fact most Australian cities were at times heavily targeted. Japanese air and naval operations bombed many of the towns/cities from Sydney to Darwin to Perth]. The recent news of how the Japanese have breached for the last twenty years their fishing obligations to the near extinction of various blue-fin and northern pacific tuna comes as no surprise, but the fact that non-Japanese and largely western nations like the Australians have known all along yet have allowed them to so easily get away with it is really worrying. The Japanese have one of the largest armies anywhere in the world next to the Americans. They are increasingly pursuing a more aggressive component of their 'self-defence' force. With the pretext explained as not being able to be of real useful help as part of western peace initiatives. Ie, they want to be able to shoot to kill rather than just be peaceful and used in ways only related to low warfare areas.

Something about their concerns just does not ring true. Like their allegations that they have to 'slaughter whales for scientific purposes in order to save them as a species', with the result all this slaughtered meat ends up on the tables of Japanese restaurants, not in scientific labs. with ongoing propaganda from the Japanese Government trying to push whale meat as Japanese tradition and a true Japanese should be tempted to indulge such tradition. Whaling 'tradition' for the Japanese was always a very limited proposition 200-300 years ago in that it was largely limited to a few regions in northern japan that fished for them in local water regions and not in industrial strength numbers for Japanese everywhere.
They're culture is still deeply homogenous, some might suggest still as insular/inbred as what they were prior to being forced into compliant American capitalism as an aftermath of WW11. Some might suggest that the Japanese have attained capitalist perfection, if one regards the common exercise of dying on the job and remaining in such a preserved state for a number of days before the realization has finally arrived that the time of one’s retirement has been declared. Not uncommon within Japanese society, in fact it’s quite a trait. For all the success the Americans had in getting japan to be a good little capitalist country, baseball is even the national game, not karate or sumo wrestling or even origami. One cannot help feel that this success only accords to American determination after the world war to make the world in its own image, and in the case of japan this has been effective only so far. OK so they can be cute little copyists and nicely co-operative in terms of seeming like a democracy in line with US Westernised thinking of what capitalist/democracy is, but looking at the heart of japan and what it has turned into I think you'll find a pretty sick puppy. deeply disturbed in fact. Immoral and desperately devoid of substance in comparison to what the Japanese culture may once have been prior to modern westernization/industrialization.
Much of their shallowness has been the result of westernised forgetting or face turning because this was good for the new world order, unbridled free trade with democracy a second thought.

 In the case of the Japanese this is going to come back and haunt us, especially the US and other pacific nations. They have been allowed to much of a free for all because the west needed allies against non-free market nations, and now that global capitalism rules where democracy has been an after-thought and America is being surely usurped from its dominant position, the Japanese will in the end play by their own rules. We in the west have allowed the Japanese a clear getaway in terms of them being truly democratic and principled about where they are going with what we have forced of them, and what they intend doing when they arrive.
And they do want to dominate the pacific rim make no doubt of that, like they have always seen of themselves the racially genetic cultural supremacists of the world that nearly pulled of a world coup' only 50 or so years ago. They are back. Or very nearly and with the aid of the very people that fought for their dear lives in order to see themselves not to be an enslaved peoples.
The men/women that sacrificed their lives from that time must surely be turning over in their graves if they could watch this whole exercise in Japanese-U.S [allies] relations and the way its unfurling. It’s fairly disgraceful really. With the Japanese one can no longer allow them to be so easily forgetful of things that they need to remember.
To hell with unbridled free trade if it demands of people that such things can be so easily dismissed as not significant, or where principles are allowed to be made light of if it means shares to be bought and sold must be the only basis for modern democracy.

In the case of japan it must be demanded of them that they comply with fishing treaty's and fines should be enforced, if not by the proper bodies there has to be trade sanctions, and they must not be allowed to become proactive in terms of their military unless they abide and refrain from whaling. The military should be used in order to enforce of them a whaling ban.
The trade compact of which the Japanese are the
clear winners using cultural specific reasons for not opening up fully to other nations exports (as well compliant western regret over Hiroshima) need to be revised as no longer should they be able to have closed markets in terms of agricultural, racial other areas. Education system must be able to identify the role of the Japanese in ww2 as clearly an aggressor. But with the Japanese now is the time to act not tomorrow.

-Postscript 11/12/09 with the Rudd government and particularly our environment minister peter garret having come in to government with one of their major platforms being to "stop Japanese whaling", its not at all amusing to see how quickly these have capitulated to Japanese recalcitrance in their intentions to remain as a modern first world whale slaughtering culture.          
 Having come out today and publicly announced to the world quite openly 'how these will continue to hunt in Australian oceans and beyond' whether Australians like it or not! Using the same silly old argument of how this is all for science along with the retort -'you Australians put kangaroo on the barbie' so there.          
  Blunt. Recalcitrant. No room for compromise at all there and the weak Rudd government just lays down upon their backs and thinks of England. Amazing.           
  This kind of recalcitrance defies all the characteristics of what many perceive the reality of true Japanese cultural riches to be. That is a culture that could be described as being one of the most highly developed, refined and utterly focused upon and inspired by nature.
Although an undeniable aspect to this is a culture also that is maybe overly attached toward making nature servile and compliant as beautiful and honed as this imagination can often be [Japanese sculptors/artisans like Toshio Lezumi, Keizo Ushio, Koichi Ishino are definitely world’s best practice though]. The Japanese are desperate for Australian Gas and Iron Ore in order to sell these back to us in the form of cars and other high technology having done this now for more than fifty years even belying the fact that Australia has other major markets for these resources.
             And this government cannot get some backbone to use this fact to in some way announce back to the Japanese that this market and all its advantages of being open and freely available to the Japanese will be shut until they dis-continue with coming down to Whale in the Southern ocean.           

  In time the Japanese will realize that Australia has always been a very open and easily accessible economic market place for them as well a loyal ally and in good time this openess will be missed and their whaling income will be seen for what it is.          

  Trivial and little more than a side dish in terms of viable economic pursuit or so-called 'tradition' esp if it is going to affect their relations with such a stable and ready ally as Australia. -And this ally did not ban whaling back in 1978 just so the Japanese could take up where we left off.

postscript 16th may 2011; Some months ago the world bore witness to giant rolling tsunami's breaching landfall and literally pounding japans nuclear power stations into submission. And again the world opened up its heart and elicited despair & consolation. And again the Japanese get a let off as they so often have throughout the 20th century and it seems this new one as well.
Few saw fit to ask why did they build their nuclear energy sites so catastrophically close to an earthquake zone, and along coastal flats so close to major cities? Allowing them to become hazardously unregulated & technologically out-dated, with scant thought for a back-up plan in the case of a major crisis such as this?
And few if any dare harangue them over the vast amounts of nuclear waste that has resulted from this episode to be spewed out into an Ocean we all share and survive from. Another sign of a nation with little ‘leftist’ or even centrist opposition. Only what is patently a right-wing corrupt xenophobic nationalist orientated Government.

Pope Francis & The Vatican

POPE FRANCIS and THE VATICAN [Protestantism/Anglicans and the 'American Evangelists' both black and white included] written 2012.

Portrait of the myth, the man the dogma?

 The obsession these old men of the Vatican like Pope Francis have with the crucified figure of an overtly muscular, very healthy, white Anglo-Saxon male, naked and bloody on a cross speaks volumes for a Church and a Religion that at its heart is disturbing and ultimately very negative.

         A beautiful image it maybe, but it is also hideous at the same time. An image that appeals to two of the worst aspects of the human psyche, both narcissism & cruelty in order to assuage some ancient, appeasement based on guilt to the gods that rule over us from heaven above. Thereby sacrificing someone, or something as way of investing the sacrificed with some kind of fake sense of redemption and spirituality by being sacrificed. After-all the whole Jesus thing is little more than the Prometheus myth retold. And even before the Greek god Prometheus there was the Egyptian god Pheonix, with similar mythology. It’s obvious the early Jesus cults were well researched and pretty enterprising too for that matter. And who gets to play this sacrificed Jesus character one has to ask?

          -No doubt some poor bastard who's either been unwittingly, ceremoniously slung into an anachronistic cauldron run by spiritual fakes, or more likely some poor unbeknown sod who has rather been shanghaied against his/her own free-will into playing the modern returned 'Jesus figure' for the 20th and 21st centuries...because if such a person had have been asked up front no doubt there would have been a case of outright refusal to obey the instigators of all of this self-serving nonsense and great and higher purposes/commands.

         It can surely be guaranteed that the sort of righteous folk who like this kind of thing are on an intellectual level very shallow people indeed. Mindlessly shallow as well as being rather pretentious in appearing to be without even a shadow of the materialist?

      The same sort of people who think so many of these supposed iconic celebrity’s & rocks stars are really very, deep, meaningful, souls and not just preppy, nepotistic sociopath’s who often as not come these days with two and three generations of familial or insider career networks that make their not inconsiderable talents largely worthless without the attachment of their much more talented forbearers names behind their curriculum vitas.

    The ‘one’ little thing they all have in common is the desire for a resurgent Christian ideal, as in a white mythological returned jesus figure to be denoted as ‘the one.’ Their jesus will be white and plainly suited to the securing of their own racial and hereditary status long into the future. Most behind this whole conspiracy and it is a conspiracy, are essentially upper-middle class white racists including many of the blacks people who dare to go along with this agenda.

        Again the type of folk inured to this sort of thing are usually from pretty, upper-middle class backgrounds which explains the rosy-eyed world view and somewhat idealistic nature they tend towards others esp., those from lower socio-economic backgrounds. They're most definitely not from low or working class backgrounds that can be guaranteed!  And rarely is the sacrificial victim a nice, well educated, upper-middle class rich kid, it would have to of course be generally and stereotypically someone of low economic means with little familial backup who is seen to be and considered disposable enough to suit the evil minds behind such religious/spiritual machinations engineered to facilitate and expunge some unconscious corrupt guilt the wider body politic senses of itself.

           If these church/religious leaders like the new media savvy and ‘enlightened’ newly elected Pope Francis and his kind ever had their 'Jesus' actually arrive back on earth one day in order to seek his ownership of 'their' control and stewardship of the Christian church's [both the catholic and protestant churches, and all of these little Jesus based churches & cult's about] with all of its accoutrement and lucre guarded jealously by these Holy-Men and women, Priests, Popes, Bishops included, all for his own personal usage, quite possibly to use for acquiring land in the best parts of the world with which to fashion a majestic home or two upon in which he might also choose to partake of various high-class whores, an assortment of vestal virgins and other fleshly pursuits- maybe like a nice collection of art and trinkets, perhaps even some nice and expensive wines / spirits/ cocaine,  maybe a little yacht or three-none of which happened to be under 60 foot in length and perhaps a little gambol here n there at various casino,                                                      

   - I feel damnably sure that the slitherer's who now watch over the various Christian church would very quickly have their 'lord Jesus' quietly hung, drawn and re-crucified before the deadly hour of dawn preferably before the sun was set.

         All to ensure that all the excessive power, glitter, gold and other largesse like the vast holdings of real estate that these churches/religions own was never lost from their controlling, greedy, insidious, tenacious and grasping hands basically.

       Jesus if he did exist was after all only an intellectual who one surely doubts would have welcomed his thoughts and actions being taken up as dogma and the made into mental slavery all for the sake of religion. He must be rolling in his long lost grave. 

Why do the religious need others to believe in their dogma, such as jesus or even god? WHY? Because they themselves do not believe it and need other intelligent-minded people to believe in a god just to help enforce their own belief in basically a deluded fantasy.Of course with the more richer dogmas like christianity they also need to have fools to belief simply so these holy men and women can retain control over the church and its vast holdings of material assets.

#Postscript- ...sad truth is in the early 90's I had my life railroaded by a powerful combination of Opus Dei, the Jesuits, Cia as well as the mafiosi who basically commanded or demanded that I take on the character of the risen Christ on behalf of Popists and the general european aristocracy who were inclined toward revising the church for a new century which they felt had been ravaged by atheists not unalike Christopher Hiitchens ! They told me in no uncertain terms that they would make my life hell on earth if i ever defied them!
I did and my life has been practically smashed ever since. .ie., reduced to impoverishment levels basically. Essentially the The rich powerful Christian Church's want me for their higher calling...oh! and more of their what hitch claims ''fakery". You have been forewarned.

Aboriginal Massacres

Aboriginal Massacres?
This nation was not settled by shiny, happy people.

       It was settled through massacre. The frontier wars here were as murderous and savage as they were in the United States/Canada or New Zealand. This nation in fact was largely founded on institutionalised racism with a keen sense and even a fondness for cruelty. Which has been its one great mainstay, in that many of it’s immigrants were possibly those who it could be described were somewhat intolerant of others. Whether they came here from the British isles, Europe or even Asia. Basically we do like our immigrants to have strong un-altering dispositions…and especially of recent times money, much of it if at all possible.

      Commonly expressed these days by the very culture of the place, its obsession with sport, its anti-art, anti-intellectual tendencies, its overall aggression, its obsession with the Nanny-State and particularly with regard to its treatment of asylum seekers and the dispossessed both home and away.

A soft, semi-fascist snarling, mean-hearted dog is in reality this nations true and closest friend...alas.

      Our first settlers were bloodied, dirty, diseased, poorly educated and often desperate when they arrived throughout the early parts of the 1800's.
    Throughout much of the 18 century on up until the early twentieth century the more greedy & plunderous of them i.e., the rich, bullying landed gentry along with the aid of their bully-boys took such activity into out-right massacre.
       And such massacres were not few, they were numerous and nasty and were not unaided by biological warfare and the more ignorant working class settler from Britain who were intent on moving into and working the land these rich landed gentry employed them on and empowered them to do.
     Disease killed and cleared the new land of many of these indigenous no doubt, but so did plunder and intimidation. And massacre. By a people whom to us today would be somewhat foreign and not easily sympathised with. They were largely British born and British in their identity principally of Scotch-Irish descent [‘Ulstermen’ who were mainly called upon and used thus because of their propensity for ignorance, violence and an immovable love of 'gods law' above all other laws, by English Royalty since the middle-ages. Where ever these English monarchs wanted to reign. Our early European settlers came with decidedly, ignorant and foreign points of view not inured or well-read as regards their new lands nature and scope.

Nevertheless the murder and massacre were numerous and perpetrated on both sides though much more done against the indigenous than done to. Especially when a pastoralist’s cattle may have been slaughtered or taken without due concern.
 [although in all truth when one adds up the final inter-racial toll one would easily suggest that the damage done is as much in favour of aboriginals than those regarded as 'non-indigenous,' especially when one considers the modern era and all the rapes committed, then the outright vandalism or murder based upon race].

       For all that bad early history however which can never be retracted unless one comes up with a time machine of sorts and even then? Probably not.
      What can be done however is recognition of the fact that this nation's first beginnings were brutal and unequal and dispossession was to the advantage of the white European settler not the local indigene. Like it or not.
      To deny this is akin to driving blindly down the streets with no brakes and blithely hoping that everything is going to be okay. This kind of ignorance will ensure that Australian culture will remain forever in a kind of, 'she'll be right' denial mentality…just don't mention it and it will all go away.
        Sometimes just mention it and it will still stay there but what goes is the ignorance. What comes about though is the culture.      Meaning Europe and the rest of the world has a history littered with the murdered, the extinct, the dispossessed.
       In fact most of this nations immigrants have their own history of dispossession be it from the time of the Romans or further back, where the various Picts who largely lived and roamed in hunter gatherer fashion throughout western Europe as well many other tribes of pre-Roman Europe would probably have the right to demand retrieval of culture & lands if present inheritors could possibly prove that they were of that ilk originally.
       As would many ethnicity's who came after and somehow got incorporated into the vastness of European culture.
       Asia would be as similar, probably thousands of different tribes and ethnicity's got made into some collection of people or civilization there somewhere along histories winding road. Its childish and just plain absurd to think that the whole world will do an abrupt time reversal just to amend ones particular grievances as many of our 'aboriginals'-'indigenous'-'first-peoples,' -'hunter gathers' seem to want to do.
Life unfortunately goes on.

      The history must not be ignored however. That's the significant thing. The leftist extreme do not agree on that though, they want to somehow over-turn the facts and make everything go back to the way it was. Good luck to them if they know something everybody else doesn't!

     My solution to curb some of the blissful, ignorance and refusal to think of such things as massacres happening

-is to create a monument to such tragic history especially history appropriate to Western Australia, a state especially prone to the culture of denial, as though if people suddenly accept such historical fact we are all going to disappear down a funnel into the bowels of the earth.                                                          - [especially by those in 'Real Estate Developers Land' hungrily suburbanising & cementing over so much of our beautiful South-West region this very moment and who greatly need to recognize this land is essentially stolen land, -although maybe that's the real problem in truth?]

       This idea is to make a great monument just like we do for the boys who fought in various war-zones and other conflicts and that sit in many of our cities/towns throughout the country.                  
       Only instead of a monument to war and sacrifice, this will be a monument to our original Anglo-centric, Christian ignorance, and will be in recognition of this sacred cow of unstated denial.         Something which is as much a part of the new Australian migrant mindset whether they have just come here from either Asia/Britain/Europe or elsewhere and who often come with highly ignorant and even quite racist appraisals of aboriginal Australia.

      I'd like to make a monument to Yagan but different to the one executed previously by a local Perth sculptor from the 1970’s a certain Robert Hitchcock and which now sits on a lonely non-descript piece of island bushland where no one has to see it and bear witness to this somewhat shameful past grievance.
      A Yagan it must be said which is rather poorly rendered and which bears only a passing resemblance to true Yagan except for the fact Yagan was tall, had a beard and also carried a spear.
      I mean no disrespect to the sculptor but to be honest his Yagan looks 'like a virgin'. And his depiction of the human form is sadly lacking in both realism, realization, imagination, vision and depth of meaning. It looks much like a generic form of some comic book cut-out of your typical superhero figure, or maybe a manikin of the ideal male body which is then used as a display in a clothes shop outlet. Basically it’s not good.

      I want to sculpt a real magnificent Yagan. One that is aboriginal of that time in physique and attitude. Noble but also brutal. Savage but wiry. Athletic with scar tissue, but also having lean muscle fibre along with those slender, thin ankles common for aboriginal australia. A fierce indomitable tribal expression to go with. A less than noble beast but still classic and a figure to be respected.
      And one not laughed at or so easily dismissed as puerile that gets vandalised on lonely nights by having its head removed.

       Because the great figure I will sculpt will not only be superbly realized [ by my formidable capacities to sculpt the human figure like few others, certainly in this land and further still ] -my Yagan will not have to be vandalised.
In that he will not have a head to be vandalised with.

      His head removed by the colonial force at the time will be in his own hand, bloody and dripping, and thrust forth to us his executioners in denial- we the viewer who might happen to be one of an audience looking up to Yagan beside the beach and who may be given to thought about ideas such as class, race, subjugation by the rich of yesterday and indeed today who often are the same people.
      His giants head held out in one hand and presented as a gift to the viewer below with his own hand will have the fierce, neanderthal but still pensive browed, broad nosed, look about it. A slightly open-mouthed expression either from shock or despair. Thick locks of hair not unlike some primordial angry, cave-dwelling genius from a more darker-age, the age before 1770.
 His long legs and figure will not have the idealism and heroic pose of modern steroidal masculinity that we know of in the present time.
     Instead he will have the difficult awkwardness of figure not unalike Rodin's great figures particularly the stance of his walking man series [St.John figures].
     And to his Yagan's rear, as if shorn from off his shoulder blades and set upon a high post at an angle in degree say about 45 degree, will be the vast outstretched wings of the Wedge-Tailed eagle surrounding him at least more to one side than the other, but still distinctly protective/and releasing. An assignation endorsing him to be the leader of his tribe.
     While his spear will be thrust into the tempestuous waters of the shoreline beside him. One hand holding it but not angrily, just with a sort of concentrated intensity, as if clarifying his malcontent and defiance over his loss of homelands in the shifting raging sea that is this earth.

      I choose to call this statue, “Black Angel; A Monument to Yagan.” I would set this sculptural monument at one of Perth's major city beaches, such as 'City Beach' in the Floreat, Shenton Park precinct, because of its salubrious somewhat consumer-nicety, its slightly conservative outlook, certainly because of its centrality and potential for open public space [that is if I can get the local council to allow such a thing of which they can be rather immune to simply because Perth is such a racist city in a racist state].

      Then of course there are my very discreet, bourgeoisie, art-snob, saboteur/vipers throughout the Western Australian 'jewish' dominated, funded and owned arts community. Who are determined to see the end of me and have done so now for most of this battered artistic life.The worst of which, are often as not middle-aged, acutely Zionist in politic, and generally female in nature.
      Or then there are those that come from fundamentally anti-lower/working class with an agenda that is to ensure that during their 'watch' no-one especially if of an Anglo-Celt heritage or from a more lower socio-economic background NEVER, NEVER, EVER gets a hope in hell of establishing themselves as an artist in this town or further afield for that matter.
      Not that their all like that because probably the best art teacher I ever knew was actually its print-making teacher who was undoubtedly a Zionist in his makeup even to the point of disabusing the aboriginals, but he was also an especially great art teacher it must be said [at least before I got harassed via art-politics out of Claremont art school in my teen years and numerous times since-as is not uncommon for those of certain dispositions who the establishment doesn't want to go further in the field of art practice, purely because this might amount to competition. Actually a major problem with any person attempting to establish themselves as a visual artist in this country-Nepotism 'big time'].
It is generally the jewish poseurs and wannabe's who use the trauma of history for their own little agendas. I don't dislike all Jewish only the more spiteful, bourgeoisie ones who think they own the art world, along with their fellow antagonist's the 'Wasp' art-snob. And from character assassination via book or song or even via mural these are usually the prick bastards who generally win at end of day.
      And no doubt these saboteur rats, who most likely have already viewed this post, are right this very minute coming up with a simulacra based upon this very idea, [a few changes here n'there maybe, as well making it clear how this idea of theirs had been thought up a year or two in advance of my own] in order to trump my proposal and make their own submission the more accepted one. With the aid and favour of all their fucking politically correct friends and mates in the arts funding establishments like the Australia Council and elsewhere?

    Nevertheless my bronze Yagan will not be a syrupy, white man’s wet dream all about doing the right thing by the aboriginals and coming up with something largely insipid and watered down. It will be much too magnificent for mere pretence. It will no doubt be hated by certain reactionaries in fact much of Perth one should think, but then again I will not be doing it for nil.

        My price will be right and this sculptural monument will be of quality. And with time 20-30 years such a monument should become if not loved certainly valued and respected if not because of its brilliance as a piece of formal public sculpture, then maybe one would hope for its familiarity.

And it will awaken true history but not make Australians have to feel more guilt at least in the long term. But it will make them more cultured but with more than just eye candy or through creating some weird form of the sort of thing which has become all pervasive in western art these days and especially Australian western art which basically has become too scared to say something deep and meaningful or otherwise all the government bureaucrat's will become quite upset. Such a thing should impart real depth of culture for all Australians whether they agree with Yagan and the aboriginal cause or not. It doesn't really have to matter.

The cost upwards of three millions. My cut 2-3m. The cost of materials 1-2millions especially related to foundry work which I will have done here if possible, or France. Where they have a history of doing the very best bronze foundry work . But since I have not had a lot of experience building public monuments the cost may well be higher or lower. If so my price will depend on such outcomes.
Nevertheless this sculpture of Yagan will be 8-10 feet tall, not including granite lined plinth 6 feet long, 4 feet wide 4 feet high, set upon steps of three -each 2 ft deep. The whole thing should be 15-25 ft tall approx.

It will also thrust me to the very top of the Australian sculptors/art ranking's as not only the highest paid artist in this country [which should not be regarded as entirely self-serving because this might also aid my fellow artists to seek out and even receive better payment rates for their own work by making artists similar in their professional regard not unlike a leading executives would be regarded by the business community-so any monetary value I get from such a proposal means little and I would do it freely if I thought this would give me more than just prove of my abilities.

The money alas will let those in the art world know for once and for all that all their dirty acts of sabotage and exclusion, all their little allegiances and spiteful character assassination behind my back is to nought because I am now the highest paid artist if not in the world certainly within this country and certainly one of its greatest geniuses-not them and their stupid small-minded niggling highly connected friends.
That's what the evil monetary reward will do for me unfortunately, as well get me one or two other things one of which will be to possibly depart this nation and find some place where people do not despise those with initiative and an ounce of talent that is not only of the sporting variety, but without doubt what this proposal should do to my reputation is to make me probably as regarded and respected as any other contemporary Australian artist within this country.
Even above all my fellows whom are generally female, aboriginal, ethnic or if of male gender these are usually white, Jewish, homo-sexual and definitely from a bourgeoisie well-connected background.
I shall be the first who is male from a genuinely non-privileged, working class orientation.

One will simply not be able to write about this nation’s art history without including my work from here on.
So two birds will be gotten by one significant stone- I shall become both the highest paid artist as well the most exemplary and important Australian artist of my or any other generation!

And the most important thing such a sculpture might do, what it will in fact do! is to make this nation more levelled and less inclined toward reactive violence in its nature, it would not so need to be the nanny-state it has become, it would lose this need to drive huge familial trucks[ Suv's] throughout our streets and call them cars, it would be less paranoid about children and young adults, it would become less dumb, and much less essentially so upper-middle class feminist-riven as well our arts & culture would be less dominated by an insular, class-bigoted left holier than thou mentality that may not believe in god but they surely do see themselves as god sometimes!!
Eyes now so 'Wide shut' would become 'Eyes Wide awake'.

Has RTRfm lost its EDGE?

Perth's once beloved independent radio station RTRfm is at it again i.e., all their carefully appointed radio/music announcers are again on the band-wagon [pardon the pun] telling everyone who will listen to pay up because they are all doing it for FREE. RTRfm is already tax-payer funded. So I had to write them and say....

"again guys I'm very sorry to say this but when various privileged radio announcers tell folks over radio "how they all do it freely" well, we all know this is rubbish. Okay it maybe true enough for those announcers who come in during the after midnight hours from their day jobs and play music these are doing it much more from the basis of love but of the more cushy day jobs as announcers where one MUST have the right pedigree/requirements ie., NO dysfunctional familial background, NO lower socio-economic status, MUST HAVE the right political networking connections ie feminist attitudes these WILL GENERALLY GO ON TO HAVE WELL ENUMERATED PROFESSIONS/CAREERS IN ENTERTAINMENT SECTOR because of connections. As well them and their 'mates' promote each others music and bands and political interests at the expense of the tax-payer who is unlikely to ever get a job at 'rtr-m' playing their musical interests.

RTRfm in the early days had much disparity and dysfunction and EDGE.

 Not now because it is largely under the surveillance and domination of vested interests i.e., the petty bougheosie who have very small insular mindsets and very minor first world concerns regarding two main themes & causes.
                                     -meaning "The economic interests of largely Upper-middle class Fems'" OR "the interests of Upper-middle class Lesbians & Gays." Simple fact.

 I do not hear voices from lower socio-economic suburbs as in Balga, Kensington, Rockingham, nor does one hear the voices of someone who has a job in a laundry, or as a kitchenhand, or who is from Sudan, or who is Muslim or who is even a disenfranchised white racist ex-con, rarely does one hear the voice of low socio-economic aboriginal Perth/Australia [unless this suits the agenda of some pristine white middle-class feminist cause] one usually only ever hears more educated classes of aboriginal voices. One never hears the voices of new immigrants from China/asia or elsewhere?

Never does one hear the voices of the far-right, the far-left, the filthy rich, or even the desperately impoverished and uneducated white trash. one only ever now hears from the well ensconsed well connected well networked in-crowd with the right point of view at RTR fm of late."

 And this saddens me somewhat and although I have tried telling them such things and how sorry I was for doing so they still reserve the right not to have their pure and perfect sensibilities made dissimulated by criticism. Basically they delete my comments!

"Nevertheless RTR fm has definitely lost much of its edge."

Again this is the same sort of problem with our other major independent music network Triple J. In that it has essentially been taken over  by all the 'in-crowd'. All promoting their own political agenda [gay marriage or upper middle-class feminism] at the expense of other more disparate voices, although it must be stated these will on odd occasion allow such things to happen as long as these other voices stay within the blinkers, -just to prove to its critics that, 'everything's OK at triple J heh! heh!! -HO, HO!'

banned from amazon kdp community forum after I asked "why are Australians being so discriminated against?" (2010)

REPLY to Ed August?  -Your not particularly bright 'ed' and I really should not waste my time but anyway here goes..... Do you realize how many different types of communities there are in Australia? Because your comment is completely jack-asse, ignorant.

Have you ever gone into some very small parochial communities all over Western Europe where they can often resort to straight out and severe abuse of you if you don't happen to be 'a local' or a national. Happened to me frequently especially throughout country areas of France. They can be particularly parochial as well sometimes quite insular in France can the frenchies be, and parts of southern Spain are fiercely right-wing and very parochial indeed even seriously hostile toward a 'non-local'. Italy too in some cases, admittedly Europe can suffer from having way too many foreign tourists.
And areas of Britain if you aint 'local yokel' forget it. And DO NOT even think about going into some of their public bars because you can get looked up and down like your from Mars or like they either want you dead or gone from their little hang-out very quickly indeed. Try Scotland for instance, they cin'a'be pretty good little nationalists too when they want to be.

And for all Australia's fond connections with Ireland, even as an Australian with Celtic sounding surname, as well my deep, supposed, ancient familial connections to the lovely Emerald Isle, a brotherhood made much of by both nations poets, musicians and other heralds of note, this brother of the celt from down-under was still fondly regarded as a potential interloper who possibly had too the potential to take work away from a true Irishman? And so with my perceived lack of funds [under $3000] in 1991, I was refused entry into Ireland even though it was at this time considered to be an 'Economic Tiger'.
Something I can say no Englishman ever did to me, even though my makeup might be more Celtic-australian than Anglo-Saxon australian?
Many millions of Irish over the decades have made use of this nation with its familiar and fond ties to the ancient, blood-line of the celt, especially when their own circumstances were dire and possibly a little uncertain. And one would generally have to say that this nation [australia] was more often than not, an easy, open and accessible entry point, recognizing familiar historical links...and thats not such a bad thing.
[nevertheless as a rule the irish are above all others of the British isles and further afield too, if simply because of the esteem that nation gives to Poetry & Musicianship. By comparison the English are more inclined to emphasise the value of the 'jones' much above everything else really].

Getting back onto English parochialism/nationalism go witness all the Brit lager louts along the Spanish coast or even go to Queensland where they've begun to set up their small nationalist Union Jack centric backpacker clubs and bars that completely 'bar' Australians from ever entering or working in that is if you want to come out alive!
In fact go down to Perth particularly along its coastal areas like 'Cottesloe' during summer season and see all the nasty brit boys in groups roam about trying to get into punch-ups with Australians in order to prove how much tougher they are than 'the loathsome convict aussies.'

Okay your an American, so you think North America does not have its small insular communities? You think they don't exist in Canada either heh? How wrong you are friend. And I as an australian have experiences that say differently and know for a fact the great self-righteous, pure as honey nation of Canada could easily be regarded as being redneck central and again your great and open-minded nation the US has more than its fair-share of nationalist backwards types.
'US' seems hell bent on making the world and indeed this country into its small terrified ally in fact. -Where even small minor matters of American 'newsworthiness' must be made into major news stories down here otherwise the American ambassador gets on the phone to our weak, cowering, australian political leaders to demand, indeed abuse and intimidate them into making some small, silly, uninteresting and really quite inane American news stories into almost front or second page page news here, or otherwise we get accused of not being interested enough in American affairs and being insular often when far more important things are happening either here or elsewhere in the world! [but guaranteed if something major happens here it barely rates even a mention in American news services, so culturally inoculated to other peoples cultures are you Americans].

And now we've [meaning our stupid labor government under PM.Gillard] has just handed over our country to the American military in order to build their bases here and to help fully consolidate their cultural colonisation over us [really an agent of the CIA with her one and only mission which was never 'feminism'  really just a ruse or a diversionary tactic, her real mission was to obtain executive office given to her by the invisible men who controlled Labor and who were also CIA trained and educated operatives and who have all since pretty much left politics now that their real 'mission' has been effectively accomplished ie., to aid and abett the establishment of the American military into this country and effect a takeover for when the conservatives take office and use any controversy as a pretext for which the Americans can intervene and simply make it a clean invasion, little more. Gillard is not a feminist she is a hard-right wing neo-conservative and like Abbott was born in the UK where her real alliances are].
 - from Sydney to Darwin and on down to Perth. Can't wait to see the consequences of that silly action on the part of again weak australian political leadership that have failed to see her for what she in fact is!
What usually happens is these American military go on to commit rape crimes against the local population only to be flown back to America to spend theirs days in an easy American military prison scoffing down McDonalds burgers and French fries and being told what great misunderstood American hero's they are.

-Once watched on late one night as a group of disenchanted American military walked down an australian suburban street overturning tables chairs smashing windows because of some sense that we 'aussies' were not being culturally obligated enough toward Americas own sense of its nationalistic superiority. But when these disenchanted white military boys found out they were being watched they at least apologized.
Personally I consider America and the largely evangelist & Jewish banking oligarchy/capitalists/aristocracy who control 'her' [through the federal reserve] to be the worlds most dangerous national entity since the Nazi's. -Who mostly now run 'her'.
Utterly determined to make every other nation on this earth a part of America's 21st century Roman-esque like agenda for world domination [essentially via the European aristo's] and just as equally riddled by their Christian theological falsity and religious dogma.

What about Asia you think some of their communities and nations do not suffer from prejudice directed toward non-citizenry? Or at times can be a little unfriendly to outsiders? Grow up. You sound extremely niavete -'ed august'. Try parts of Indonesia or Thailand mate, or even China, Japan, Korea? Some little towns won't let round-eye leave until they've ensured most of your money is well and truly in their safe little hands. Much of Asia can be thus prone.
Try India for instance, where racism along with caste and class bigotry, just alike the game of cricket, is a national past-time! The professional upper-class Anglo-Indian makes self-righteousness  into a higher art form in fact.

And what about Scandinavia?-You don't think they can be a little culturally insular, even red-necked at times? I can assure you they can be. If you want some real cultural parochialism along with a cool, snowy climate try New Zealand.
You think all the euro-trash & British do not come to australia and act the cultural chauvinist's they truly are?
 Trust me australians have been putting up with arrogant, loud-mouthed opinionated Americans, British, Dutch, French and Germans and other superior and arrogant western European free-loading 'self-entitled' backpackers for nearly half a century [as well NZ'rs] all using the place as their doormat and treating australians with quite a good degree of nationalist contempt all with the imprimatur of "the Australian Business Council-lobby" in order to do so as well the 'Australian?' Liberal Party. -[keeps the median wage low and has been doing so for nearly 40 years and more and also keeps australians in the main inadequately skilled as well generally lowly paid].
And right now we are inundated with all of these truly conceited French backpackers who refuse to converse to an Australian because we do not speak French enough for them, but nevertheless are quite happy to drop in here and just claim employment where and when it suits their arrogant little chauvinist natures and continue to still act the part of the superior European. The shear cultural-nationalist hostility coming from more than a few of them is so completely rude you would'nt believe!
 Bad enough in France to be so rude toward non-French speaking people, but to be thus so inclined in a foreign English speaking land is clearly arrogant especially when one is here to take work from Australians-not the other way around!!!!

 Okay so your friend had a hard time in a little outback town somewhere in South Australia called tim-buk-too. Get over it!

One thing we have not done and that is gone into other peoples countries and bombed them into submission like you Americans regularly do to any country who is unwilling to accept your rule of authority and cultural colonisation.
And we have never enslaved the millions of african, asians or others the way you foul British, Germanic, Dutch, French, Belgium, Spanish, and Portuguese have done. Okay? The only potential colony we had was Papua New Guinea of which we freely relinquished back in the early nineteen seventies!
And further we have never slaughtered the several million Gypsy's-Poles-Leftist's-Artists-Jews-and mentally ill like the Germans did in WW11.
Nor have we murdered and enslaved the millions of Palestinians the way the Israeli Zionist's are doing right now in Middle-East.

But we do have to put up with a lot of the after-effects because these cultures think we are the same as British or Americans when we patently are not. And what we've got is resource riches of which northern hemisphere multi-nationals/governments are determined to get hold off. which is why all the recent anti-Australian fervour?
(Although in reality the true underlying reason why white australians are so vilified by the British, NZ'rs, Americans, Europeans, Asians even our own aboriginals vilify us and worse. ie., because of our penal colony beginings. 'We are the blacks of the white race.' The Irish think it is themselves. It isnt. Its Australians always has been. And we are the very first nation founded essentially on secularist principles or 'non-christian religious principles'' unlike any other nation. Another reason why we are a despised lot. )

Go to amazon web page greg hoey "hideous an erotic art world tale" or "Awake by an elephant in the room," you may be even more justifiably offended, you being the wonderfully accepting individual you actually think you are.

Oh but I forgot 'ed,' you americans are not interested in anything that does not have america or americans as the central characters in your books or movies are you.

Same sex marriage (2011)

Finally homosexuals have their human rights [same-sex marriage] recognized by our new Labor Govt. This is not a bad thing?
Now maybe you will be able to go to a public toilet and not have to put up with suppressed freaks looking for a touch-up or an anal intercommunication experience.
 -Or have to put up with these same sort of people living the lie trying to act all moustachioed, red-blooded and hetero by marrying a female partner all the while continuing to entertain sex with other men behind their spouse's back.
The sooner they are allowed to be open and honest about their sexuality the better.

 I just wish all the religious right-wingers would realize this. But that's the problem with those reactionary's within conservative politics [and religion] unfortunately. Many of them are suppressing their innate homo-sexuality!-Hence the need to inflict hate & prejudice campaigns all in the name of Jesus and good & wholesome Christian values.

We might also begin to see less War and class politics, or is that expecting too much?
If only they [the conservatives] would get to the crux of the matter. And that is unfortunately that they are a hive of repressed gayness.
But am so happy Labor has done this finally. Repression is never a good thing.  Sooner its done with the better.

Possibly too the arts and higher learning faculty's within this country will finally accept heterosexual males and not chastise or be so prejudiced against them as way of effectively dumbing them down in order to keep Gays' on top of the social/intellectual hierarchical ladder?

#24th/5/2015 Ireland has seen fit to allow gay marriage, 52% for. One never expected this in religious very conservative Ireland!! Change is good. And really if one looks at the way straights carry-on about the importance of a man and woman as primary parents to children this is bunk. The amount of abuse and bad rearing that goes on in straight parent relationships only confirms this!
I'm sure there will be homosexual marriages that are disastrous too when it comes to the raising of children but will they be any worse than what we've had over the last two thousand years with man & woman only marriage partners.
There will be good and bad of it no doubt but in the end this will clear up a lot of rot that now goes on and has been going on for a long time especially in straight society and what they are seen to be.
If I do have a concern over homosexual marriage it is that this may entitle them even more privilege and power over and above the non-homosexual community because of their generally clubby and protective connections and network mentality used against straights competing in similar areas of life and usually being excluded by the gay-militia from doing so.

 This could result in even more serious socio/economic inequality issues falling into the hands of the homosexual community at the detriment of the heterosexual community and where they must comply to this other sex even more so than they do now in important areas of our life. Not at a street level admittedly although that could be argued against too if one really wanted but more so in higher learning areas of life and work. There are whole areas of this that are held as sacred to essentially the homosexual gender like the arts and this nonsense that only 1% of the population are gay is a nonsense. I think a significant aspect of our general population are in fact homosexually inclined i.e., more like 15-25%? Which means they have not only great economic wealth but they also have and always have had great political/social cache-power. Let us not delude ourselves about this issue!

Essentially however marriage equality is a good thing but we do need caution.

Ps- If you appreciated this essay please understand that the author is essentially a political refugee in his own country and has been put on a blacklist for much of his life largely at the hands of ones with good networking even nepotism skills and also for reasons related to very powerful American/European/Aristocratic&Religious interests who seem determined to use me in a way that suits their particular creepy agenda [religion]... being blackballed like this can be incredibly difficult and detrimental to ones writing, the making of art or simply the need to obtain work without it being tampered or interfered with by various peoples agendas because you happen to be regarded as 'The ONE'. 

Or even just not having one creative works stolen and used by others simply because these know they can freely do so and just get away with this sort of behaviour because I am seen or regarded as a 'non-entity' or am presumed to be in a no-mans land so to speak without the fair rights of others -that is to seek paid work or to be able to profit from either my writing or art work.

Such people who often have very high-paid positions within arts and professional circles themselves seem quite comfortable just stealing ones work, ideas and thoughts for their own benefits at ones own expense and sweat because they damn well know they can, because one is supposed not to exist, or function as a normal person because he is the messiah who is quite capable of living off the fucking air!!

So please innovation of ideas needs to be supported whether this be technological/scientific.commercial/or artistic innovation! You may donate to my paypal account if you so desire....gregronald_867@hotmail.com   and thank you!
