The History of an Underground World
An Introduction to the Thesis, Methodology and the Literature

Part Four

1. Master Badge — Level One Corruption

The lowest level of police corruption, McCoy called Level One corruption or ‘honest
graft’; this occurs when the police earn a bonus from the proper execution of their
duties. McCoy’s example of this is the Sydney constables who accepted bounties
from tow-truck operators for awarding them work. Level One corruption is
widespread in all police forces. Indeed, in Miami the police slang for the police
badge was “Master Badge” because of all the cash-free goods and favours it
bestowed on its possessor.

2. The Whippy - Level Two Corruption

Level Two corruption involves much more serious offences, but the transgression
remains individual, not part of a corrupt conspiracy. At a more innocent level, this
would include an officer who accepted a bribe from a motorist who committed a
traffic violation. At a more serious level, it would involve a detective who released a
thief in exchange for a share of the booty. Level Two drug corruption is widespread
in all police forces, and is so commonplace in drug raids it is often not seen as
corruption. As the Wood commission report noted:
Features of the corruption included the regular theft from civilians in the
course of the execution of search warrants, a practice in respect of which an
alarming level of confidence existed, the view being taken that any complaint
depending on the word of an offender against an officer was bound to fail. The
preferred object was cash, the Commission being informed of ‘an old Police
rule: if you can’t bend it, fold it, or stack it, don’t take it’.

One Detective Sergeant gave evidence of a remarkable double standard
when suggesting that a senior officer had told him that he was opposed to
anyone accepting retainers of the kind epitomised by “the Laugh”, but had
added “if you went somewhere, searched a place and there was a whippy, it
was all right — that’s a free-for-all.4

For those struggling with the terminology, the report conveniently provides us
with a glossary that informs us that a ‘whippy’, derived from whip-around, is
‘money found during the execution of a warrant which is retained and divided
among police’. Because of the staggering amounts of drug money washing around
and the ease with which it could be picked off, Wood noted that the practice was
widespread and that the ‘whippy’ was rarely regarded as corrupt. It was stealing
from the ‘bad guys’.

A recent example of ‘the whippy’ came from the Police Integrity Commission
hearings in New South Wales in 2001. Two detectives searched the house of a drug
dealer and found a few ounces of pot and $40,000 in cash. Instead of treating the

242

money as the proceeds of a crime and charging the dealer, the detectives divided the
money: each of them got $10,000, another senior officer got another $10,000, and
the dealer was given the remaining $10,000 back. He was rewarded as well with the
disappearance of a major charge.

Stealing or recycling drugs is almost as common as ‘the whippy’, while charging
an offender for a lesser quantity of drugs than what was seized is also frequent, the
thinking being that the offender will not protest about the lesser amount, leaving the
difference to be recycled. These are the most common area of police corruption,
engaged in, not just by the Black Knights, but by many ‘honest’ police who have yet
to cross the line into a partnership with organised crime.

3. The Black Pawn - Level Three Corruption

At the third stage of corruption an individual officer accepts a regular retainer from a
vice entrepreneur not to investigate violations of the liquor licensing, gaming,
prostitution or drug laws. This is the ground level of ‘the Joke’ or ‘the Laugh’. A
literary example of this is the opening scene of Frank Hardy’s Power Without Glory
where the young John West tosses a gold sovereign to Constable Brogan to dissuade
him from searching the Carrinbush Tote. In the night-life centres of Australia, in
places like King’s Cross, St. Kilda or the Valley, John West’s sovereign still has the
power of corrupting the police. Examples of the favours done for vice entrepreneurs
by police involved in Level Three corruption include: the release of confidential
information; the warning of pending police activity; the ‘gutting or pulling of
prosecutions; and providing favours in respect of bail or sentencing. The police
person, at this stage, is a black pawn. At Level Four, they progress to become the
Black Knights.

4. The Black Knight — Level Four Corruption

The fourth stage of corruption involves police officers using their position and
authority to become criminal entrepreneurs. This normally involves senior officers in
specialist squads like the vice, drug or armed hold-ups squad.

Examples of Level Four corruption are many: Barry Moyse, the former head of
the SA Drug Squad who was once the national front man for Operation Noah, has
recently been released on parole after years in jail for his part in organising a
marijuana plantation, and reselling heroin and speed that had been seized by police.
Interviewed in prison by journalist Chris Masters, Moyse said that when he took
over the job as head of the South Australian Drug Squad, he took over a pattern of
behaviour that everybody before him had engaged in. They were so cynical about
drug law enforcement that they operated a system of franchising, whereby, they
would recruit dealers or often the dealers would recruit them. The dealers would be

243

given a kind of immunity in order to maintain their business and pass on information
that would enable the police to do their job which, effectively, meant just keeping
down the competition. Moyse thought that this was a practice that was honoured
right across the land by every drug squad in Australia. The recent corruption
uncovered in the Victorian Drug Squad supports this claim. Moyse regarded it as a
matter of freakish bad luck that he was caught and that the jury believed the
prosecution. Generally speaking, corrupt police like Moyse believe if they do get
into trouble, they will get into a witness box and the juries will believe them over the
people who were making the allegations who tend to be convicted drug traffickers. 5

5. The Joke — Level Five Corruption

The fifth and final stage of police corruption involves a syndication of all organised
crime activity by a tightly-structured group of senior police. At this stage, a coalition
of Black Knights run the police force. They have powerful allies in the media, in
politics and in the legal system. Unlike the individual variety of police criminality
that occurs at Level Four, Level Five corruption is highly formalised and often
involves a strict system of profit-sharing according to rank. For this final level to be
reached, the police commissioner must be ‘bent’, along with much of the political
system. This was the level of corruption that prevailed in the New South Wales
Police force in the 1970s and in Queensland in the 1980s.

The pattern of a vice trade flourishing blatantly amidst official denial is the
hallmark of level five corruption. While ABC journalist Chris Masters described
how Fortitude Valley had taken on ‘the brazenness of King Cross’, the corrupt
Queensland government denied there were brothels in Brisbane.6 A similar pattern
existed in Sydney in the 1970s with the illegal casinos, which the police claimed
they were unable to find. In reality, Premier Askin and his police commissioners,
Norm Allen and Fred Hanson, had an arrangement with organised crime to protect
the illegal casinos. In both these examples, Level Five corruption was associated
with a political partnership between a state leader and a corrupt police commissioner
which allowed the Black Knights to run the police force.

Unlike Sir Robert Askin, Bjelke-Petersen does not seem to have been intimately
involved in vice corruption. The close relationship which existed between Bjelke-
Petersen and Commissioner Lewis was based on an unwritten understanding that the
drug laws would be used corruptly against the opponents of Bjelke-Petersen by the
corrupt police. What Bjelke-Petersen got from the deal was a police force which
would act as a private army against his political opponents; what Commissioner
Lewis got was the Joke.

244

Although there was considerable evidence that Queensland became the centre of
the drug trade during the Lewis years, ‘the Joke’ that Commissioner Fitzgerald
uncovered was largely concerned with prostitution and SP booking, while the Drug
Joke in Queensland largely escaped investigation. Chris Masters has speculated that
the Fitzgerald Commission found the investigation of the drug side of police
corruption too difficult. He believed it was impossible to get the police to make
admissions about their involvement in the drug trade. Although the police thought it
was OK to admit to their families and their friends that they were covering up illegal
gambling or prostitution, they didn’t feel that the could admit that they were also
involved in covering up drug trafficking . The success of the inquiry depended on
getting people to speak openly and they were often indemnified to do so, but Masters
believes there were some things the police did not speak openly about. One was their
involvement in the drug trade, and another was their involvement in murder. As
Masters commented, you don’t get indemnities for murder.7

The story of Murray Riley and his Drug Joke in New South Wales shows how the
drug trade was incorporated into a network of organised crime which pre-dated it,
which had grown up around S.P. bookmaking, gambling and prostitution. The
sophistication of the Riley/Nugan Hand conspiracy reflected not just its American
influences, but also this well-established tradition of corruption in New South Wales.
The blooming drug trade of the 1970s was treated in a similar way to gambling and
the other vice trades, with the police seeking to regulate the trade and ensure that it
was run by old friends like Murray Riley. No doubt a similar situation prevailed in
Queensland.

Although the history of the Drug Joke in Queensland remains largely unknown, it
seems that, in the aftermath of the Mackay murder and the Woodward and Williams
royal commissions, the centre of the drug trade in Australia shifted to north
Queensland. There were many suggestions that, in the 1980s, Mareeba replaced
Griffith as the pot capital of Australia. I have touched on the evidence for this
Queensland Drug Joke in the section on the North Queensland operation: the Slade
Report, the Fast Buck$' allegations, the murder of the Clarkes, the posting of Tony
Murphy to the role of Assistant Commissioner for the Far North region, as well as
the movement of other principals of the Fitzgerald Inquiry to Cairns in 1980 — all
hint at some deeper conspiracy. Likewise the rumours about "God", the corrupt
police man said to control the drug trade in Queensland, suggest that, as in NSW,
corrupt police and ex-detectives played a key role in establishing this Queensland
Drug Joke. Perhaps if the murder of the Clarkes had been treated as seriously as the
murder of Donald Mackay, more might have been revealed.

245

Currently, there is much interest in the role of the Victorian Drug Squad in the
drug trade, indicating that drug corruption in the police forces in Australia may again
have changed its locus. Again, we may note that it is in a state that pretends it is
corruption-free where the corrupt operate.

Regime of Corruption and the Regime of Prohibition

Drugs prohibition was sold to the Australian public as a supply side solution to ‘the
drug problem’. Criminalising drug use was supposed to destroy supply and make
drugs unavailable. Yet, as we have seen, this happened only once, for a short time in
the aftermath of the Mackay murder, during the time of the Woodward and Williams
royal commissions. And even an act as extreme as the murder of Donald Mackay did
not permanently close down the drug trade; in the long-term it simply provoked a
northward migration of the Drug Joke to Queensland.

Why?

Although drug law reformers like Michael Moore have claimed that “Prohibition
doesn’t work” the truth is that prohibition does work, but in a counter-productive
way, by corrupting the gate-keepers and by breeding corruption. As I have argued,
the regime of corruption increases with the regime of prohibition.

The criminalisation of the drug trade that prohibition brings about ensures that the
entrepreneurs of the illicit trade can only survive with the aid of police protection.
Consequently, those who had already established corrupt relations with the police
through prostitution and S.P. rackets were in an ideal situation to takeover the
market when the regime of prohibition increased.

The Australian illicit drug market began as an amateur network, dominated by
people who were drug enthusiasts themselves. When the regime of prohibition
increased with the launch of the war on drugs in 1976, this old hippie network was
taken over by a criminal group, centred on an ex-detective, Murray Riley, and his
friends. It was a takeover of the drug trade by the Black Knights of the police force.
The Drug Joke became the largest discernible structure in Australia’s illicit drug
trade.

As our economic analysis shows, the amount of money available for corruption
increased with the regime of prohibition, increasing the possibilities for Level Two
and Level Three corruption, and reinforcing patterns of corrupt behaviour within
Australian police forces. It also added to the possibilities for Level Four corruption,
increasing the pool of Black Knights available for a Level Five coup. Not only did
the quantity of corrupt offences increase with the regime of prohibition, but the
chance of a qualitative change in police corruption, from Level Four corruption to
Level Five corruption, also increased.

Chapter 32:

25 Years of the ‘War on Drugs’ in Australia

Each year, the Government spends more on enforcing drug laws than it did the year
before; each year, more people have gone to jail for drug offences, yet, each year,
there have been more drugs on the street.

Whitman Knapp, Senior US Judge for the Southern District of New York
In the years since 1964, cannabis use has expanded enormously in Australia. In 1964
marijuana was practically unknown; by 1998, 39% of the population over 14 had
used cannabis at least once in their life. With the aging of the Baby Boomers,
marijuana use in Australia is now considerable in older age groups as well as the
young. The 1998 National Drug Strategy household survey showed that recent use
amongst the 20-29 age group stood at 37%; recent use among the 30-39 age group
was 20%; and among the 40-49 age group recent use was 11%. By 1998, 2,700,000
Australians, 18% of the population aged 14 and over, were recent cannabis users;
compared to 500,000 Australians in 1973. This massive increase has occurred
despite the spending of billions of dollars by governments to repress cannabis use
and cannabis users.

The thirty-six-year period between 1964 and 2000 has been characterised by two
differing regimes of prohibition. The first period — from 1964 to the overthrow of
the Whitlam government in the constitutional coup of 11 November 1975 — was
characterised by an increasingly benign view of cannabis, and a search for an
independent Australian drugs policy. During this period, marijuana smoking became
the cultural symbol of the Baby Boomers generation and spread widely among the
under 30s. Heroin use was kept at bay by the old hippie dealer network who refused
to deal heroin. During the Whitlam years, only a handful of young Australians died
each year from heroin overdoses.

The crusade to criminalise drug use intensified dramatically after 1975 when
conservative parties in Australia adopted a War on Drugs electoral strategy. This
right-wing crusade was largely based on hatred of the pot-smoking Baby Boomers
because of their anti-Vietnam War and pro-Whitlam attitudes.

This second regime of prohibition began with paramilitary attacks on hippie
communes at Cedar Bay in Queensland and Tuntable Falls in New South Wales in
1976. It was a time of increasing US-style prohibition characterised by tough-ondrugs
rhetoric, police crackdowns, numerous murders, and a marijuana drought,

247

followed quickly by a heroin plague. Organised crime replaced the old hippie dealer
network; and the price of pot skyrocketed, reaching $450 an ounce in 1988.
Just as in the US, the War on Drugs developed in Australia not for health reasons
but for reasons of social control — as a domestic counter-revolution against the
Whitlamite Baby Boomer’ generation by older Nixonite Drug War warriors like
Queensland Premier, Bjelke-Petersen. Indeed, this second ‘regime of prohibition’
could be characterised as part of the ‘Nixonisation’ of Australia brought about by the
victory in 1975 of a Nixon-inspired US/Australian right-wing alliance over the social
forces which elected the Whitlam government.

The Cedar Bay alliance, between Bjelke-Petersen and the corrupt policeman
Terry Lewis, typified this new conservative coalition. It was an alliance between Mr
Big and Mr Bigot. The essence of the Cedar Bay alliance was the agreement
(unspoken) that the drug laws would be used corruptly by the corrupt police against
the opponents of the right-wing politicians — the young, the left and the alternative.
In this way, the War on Drugs served as a mask for a right-wing attack on their
opponents. The purpose of the War on Drugs was never to minimise drugs problems;
it was, above all, about social control.

Although Bjelke-Petersen was not personally involved in drug corruption, his
counterpart in New South Wales, Sir Robert Askin, was far more approximate,
sharing offices at 55 Macquarie Street with the Nugan Hand Bank, the financial
centre of the South Pacific drug trade.

As Mr Big saw the alliance, it was about making money, large amounts of
untaxed black money; not just in Australia, but in the USA as well. What I have
demonstrated in ‘History By Numbers’ is that it is the regime of prohibition which
drives price and is the engine of the black market. Each dollar spent on drug law
enforcement is a multiplier for the illicit drug market.

The Americanisation of drugs policy in Australia was accompanied by an
Americanisation of organised crime. Australia’s transition from the ‘disorganised
crime’ of the old hippie dealing network to the criminal sophistication of the Nugan
Hand Bank/Riley operation occurred within a year of Whitlam’s fall and the launch
of the War on Drugs.

Which came first? The Americanisation of drugs policy in Australia or the
Americanisation of Australian organised crime? After the most rigorous examination
I am inclined to call it a tie: they happened together. Consider, for example, that
frantic month of August 1976: on 15 August the NSW police raided the Tuntable
Falls commune at Nimbin; on 23 August the Nugan Hand Bank was registered;
Cedar Bay was raided on August 29. Meanwhile, Murray Riley was completing his
third shipment of heroin; and Riley was organising the criminal takeover of the old

248

hippie dealing network. However, the defining event that led to the Americanisation
of Australia’s drug laws was the murder of Donald Mackay — via the Woodward
and Williams Royal Commissions — and this was due to the Americanisation of the
Australian illicit drug trade. In this sense, it could be said that the gangsters led.
During the War on Drugs years, the character of the Australian state changed
from a Whitlam-style social welfare state to a Nixon-style security state. Spending
on police and prisons rose. In the last fifteen years of the twentieth century, the harsh
new drug laws recommended by Williams produced an unrivalled boom in prison
populations and prison building in Australia. For the prison industry, the War on
Drugs created a once-in-a-century boom.

As well as expanding prison populations, the right-wing hijacking of drugs policy
saddled Australia with US-style organised crime. The murder of Donald Mackay
was simply one of hundreds of drug-related murders that occurred. Many were
killed, like Mackay, because they knew too much: others died in fights to control the
illegal trade.

The application of right-wing drugs policy greatly worsened drug problems. In the
twenty five years since the launch of the War on Drugs in Australia, deaths from
heroin use increased by 10,000 per cent. As the graph, Cost of the ‘War on Drugs’ in
Australia. 1973 - 1998 shows, before the War on Drugs, Australia had only a
handful of opiate overdoses. By producing a marijuana drought, the War on Drugs
generated a heroin plague, and opioid overdose deaths climbed steeply after 1975,
reaching one hundred and fifty by 1977. Opioid overdose deaths amongst the young
continued to increase, peaking in 1999 under the ‘Tough on Drugs’ policies of John
Howard at 958. That year over 1100 young Australians died as a result of illicit drug
overdoses.

The number of fatal overdoses has since fallen to about 400 per year in 2002
(accompanied by much boasting by the government) because of the heroin drought,
which started in January 2001, which seems to have been accompanied by a
methamphetamine plague. The heroin drought/methamphetamine plague of 2001
provokes comparisons with the marijuana drought/heroin plague of 1977, the most
obvious being that drought conditions in one drug created the ideal conditions for a
new drug plague.

In the twenty-five years since the War on Drugs was launched in Australia (circa
November 1975), over 9000 young Australians died due to drug overdoses, more
than died at Gallipoli. In the same twenty-five year period, there were approximately
one-and-a -half million drug offences prosecuted (mainly for cannabis), at an
approximate cost to the community of eleven billion dollars. Hundreds of thousands
of Australians were raided in their homes, often at gunpoint; many had their homes

249

‘redecorated’ by the police; and, at Cedar Bay, homes were literally burnt to the
ground. When even this level of repression proved ineffective, laws were passed
which made the simple possession of the smallest amount of cannabis a worse
offence than rape, official corruption or grievous bodily harm. The result? Cannabis
use went up by 400% between 1975 and 2000! ie prohibition proved counterproductive.

As the gangsters seemed to have understood, prohibition actually promoted illicit
drug use amongst the young. The curious alchemy of youthful rebellion and reverse
psychology transformed demonisation into glamorisation. And when the police
cracked down, the price went up, and so did profits too ie price varied with the
regime of prohibition. This explains the curiously parallel relationship between the
cost of drug law enforcement and the value of the marijuana market over the past 25
years demonstarted in Table 12 of ‘History By Numbers’. As a flow-on effect, every
dollar spent on drug law enforcement added about $5 to the cannabis black market.

As marijuana activists have long argued, the Drug Squad was the Price Maintenance
Squad for organised crime. They also served as an informal Licensing Branch for the
drug trade too, protecting their informants while keeping down the opposition. Like
the police, the gangsters got ‘the Joke’.

Although the policy of stopping drug use through criminalising drug users failed
year after year, prohibition was fanatically defended by right-wing politicians, for
whom it proved electorally popular, and by the gangsters, who wanted control of the
lucrative black market, with whom the right wing politicians were increasingly in
alliance. As the Cedar Bay mediated alliance of Premier Bjelke-Petersen and corrupt
police commissioner Terry Lewis illustrated: the regime of corruption increased with
the regime of prohibition.

Behind Mr Bigot stands Mr Big. As we have seen, it makes economic sense for
the criminals, the Mr Bigs and the Mr Big-Enoughs, to back the bigots because
money spent on drug law enforcement acts as a multiplier for the cannabis black
market. So although prohibition failed year after year, it found consistent support
from politicians and the media. Indeed, the Australian media played a dubious,
double role; simultaneously acting as the cheer leaders for the War on Drugs, while
being the major ‘drug pushers’ with their tabloid formula of titillation, arousal and
condemnation.

The duplicity of prohibition was seen most clearly in the successful career of a
succession of Mr Big-Enoughs, who eluded capture, despite the efforts of a myriad
of law enforcement agencies including the Criminal Justice Commission, the
Independent Commission Against Corruption, the Joint Task Force, the Narcotics
Bureau, and the National Crimes Authority. The illicit trade hid behind a cloak of

250

perfect respectability. It was ‘the Joke’, ‘the Laugh’, ‘the Giggle’; a network of
corruption that reached to the highest in the land, and which, consequently, could
rarely be challenged. In this way, prohibition corrupted the Australian political
system as thoroughly as it corrupted the police and the legal system. The period of
prohibition proved to be a time of murder, an era of greed, an age of gangsters.
The most surprising discovery of my investigation of the marijuana market was
the existence of an export trade in illicit drugs. While the Australian illicit drug
market is worth approximately $10 billion per year, the US market is worth hundreds
of billions of dollars each year. Like many other countries, Australia finds itself
involved in this huge international trade. John Wesley Egan’s famous aphorism
about senior police officers and organised crime figures being the same people,
needs to be understood in this context. ‘The Joke’ is that it is the same Americans
who run the War on Drugs who also run the illicit drug trade. McCoy writes about
‘CIA complicity’ in the global drug trade; it could also be described as ‘US
duplicity’.

The CIA, which seems to ‘greenlight’ the US drug trade, license the drug trade to
a global, anti-Communist network, and prominent members of the political police,
such as John Wesley Egan, are recruited as their local agents. This is the great secret
that lies behind the drug trade, and Donald Mackay was murdered because his
investigations threatened Frank Nugan whose career lay at the heart of this secret.
Like that other ‘high-minded’ moral crusade of the US Right, the War on
Communism, the War on Drugs serves the twin purposes of anti-communism and
US imperialism. In this way, the War on Drugs reflects the central values of its
creator, Richard Nixon.

Significantly, the Australian champions of the War on Drugs — Rupert Murdoch,
Bob Askin, John Howard and Bjelke-Petersen — were all aligned with Nixon
against Whitlam in 1974. All share these core ‘Nixonite’ values.

With Bjelke-Petersen gone, John Howard has assumed the mantle of Australia’s
foremost Nixonite Drug War warrior. Howard was the minister in charge of the
Narcotics Bureau at the time of the Cedar Bay and Tuntable Falls raids in 1976. A
very junior minister, he played ‘silent partner’ to Bjelke-Petersen during the Cedar
Bay affair, refusing to answer questions in the Commonwealth Parliament about the
raid. Howard took on the role of leading advocate of US-style drugs policy in
Australia in 1997, when he stopped the proposed heroin trial in the ACT. The only
parliamentarian left who was elected during Nixon’s presidency, he is now the main
defender of Nixon-style drugs policy. As the Tampa incident showed, Howard knew
well the role of bigot; demonising the ‘queue jumpers’, and garnering support for his
‘tough’ stand. In the same way, the ‘War on Drugs’ functions as a form of wedge

251

politics in drugs policy, turning families and generations against each other. It is a
misuse of drugs policy for right-wing political purposes.

For the right-wing, for men like John Howard, the War on Drugs has become
Holy Writ — an ideology never to be scientifically examined — not because
prohibition is good drugs policy, but because it has proven good politically for them;
in its social effects, and as drugs policy, prohibition has proven a disastrous failure.
However, for the right-wing, criticism of prohibition has become the ultimately
unthinkable thought: this is the sin known as ‘sending the wrong message’.

You can not have a War on Drugs: you can only have a war on people; and the
people the War on Drugs targets are the young, the left, the alternative. For this
reason, the War on Drugs has been the best idea that the right-wing has come up
with since fascism; it has allowed them to attack their enemies — the young and the
Left — by criminalising the drugs they use. At the same time, right-wing parties
(and the right-wing of the ALP) have received the fillip of an alliance with US and
Australian organised crime, and with the crooked spies and police who license the
drug trade.

On January 16 1919, an amendment to the U.S. Constitution banning all drinks
containing more than half of one per cent of alcohol became law. Overnight,
bootlegging, the name given to illicit alcohol manufacture, emerged as a huge black
market. In the decade and a half of alcohol prohibition, organised crime established
itself in America. It was an era justifiably associated with gangsters like Dillinger
and Al Capone. Thousands were killed in shoot-outs like the St Valentine’s Day
Massacre as rival gangs fought for control of the bootleg trade. It was an era of
unparalleled corruption: Al Capone was known to boast that he had half the Chicago
police force on his payroll. The new laws criminalised large sections of the
population: in 1932 alone, approximately 45,000 persons received jail sentences for
alcohol offences, and 50% of all cases heard in the US federal courts were for
violation of the liquor laws.

The ‘noble experiment’ of alcohol prohibition lasted 14 years, before the failure
of the attempt to stamp out the use of alcohol by prohibition became inescapably
clear. However, the spirit of prohibition lingered on in the US. What failed
nationally in that country as a strategy against the abuse of alcohol became the
strategy imposed internationally against other drugs. Just as alcohol prohibition
created an enormous black market, assisted in the rise of organised crime, and
created widespread corruption in the USA in the 1920s, so the ‘noble experiment’ of
the War on Drugs has created in Australia a similar era of gangsters and murder and
unbridled corruption.

Conclusion:

On Methodology and the Outcomes of this Research

What has been Achieved by the Thesis?

In this history of the world of Australian cannabis users, I have used two unusual
lenses, the lens of popular culture and the lens of an economic history, to explore an
underground world. I was fortunate because my lenses turned out to be bifocals,
capable of seeing the cannabis trade at both the top and the bottom. The bifocal
action of these lenses gives this history its range.

The lens of popular culture revealed the world of ordinary cannabis users, coded,
in a postmodern sense, in the form of comics, posters and songs. In the chapters on
Queensland, ‘An Australian Richard Nixon’ and ‘Regime of Corruption’, this
popular culture approach was used to explore the development of ‘Australia’s police
state’, Bjelke-Petersen’s Queensland, and its cannabis laws from ‘the other side of
the frontier’. This popular culture approach was also used to tell the story of the
growth of the counter-culture in chapters like ‘I’d Love To Turn You On’.

While the lens of popular culture works on the lowest level of the cannabis trade,
the level of the individual cannabis user, the lens of economic history proved best for
exploring the highest levels of the drug trade where it penetrated the underworld of
international drug trafficking like a bright light, revealing a conspiracy, a massive
international drug smuggling conspiracy, which was built around the Nugan Hand
Bank, which aimed to supply the U.S. market from Australia. The discovery of an
export dimension to the Australian drug trade was an enormous revelation to me.
Likewise, the idea that drug law enforcement acted as a multiplier for the black
market (because price varies with the regime of prohibition) was an important
discovery.

Economic History and the Scientific Method

Although history is a notoriously inexact science, the economic historian can aspire
to an approximation of science. Markets lend themselves well to measuring,
quantifying and mathematical analysis. There were times during my research, like
when I charted the relationship between the price of pot and the regime of
prohibition, or when I first saw the Sydney Connection, when I felt that my scientific
methodology was vindicated.

254

Like some Newton of drugs policy, I have proposed and tested three laws of the
illicit cannabis market:

1: Price varies with the regime of prohibition;
2: The percentage of the market seized varies with the regime of prohibition;
3: The regime of corruption increases with the regime of prohibition.

Although these laws are neither as universal nor as important as Newton’s three
laws of motion, they are nonetheless reasonable propositions that can be explored in
a similar quantitative manner. It is the scientific method of making and testing
hypotheses against the evidence which is important. It was the failure to prove the
second law that led me to the idea of the Sydney Connection and the export theory.
Newton likened his discoveries to those of a boy playing on the shore, picking up
a few pretty shells, while the vast ocean of truth lay undiscovered all around him.
The ‘pretty shells’ I have collected are these:

• In the course of my research I have developed two independent, yet harmonious
models for estimating the size of the cannabis market from the polls on the cannabisusing
population: The Green Mean method and the Modified Cleeland method.
These models provided a ‘sense of scale’ which allowed me to see the Sydney
Connection.

• I have talked about doing ‘History By Numbers’ and the discovery of the
Sydney Connection is the best example of this. The great value of the lens of
economic history is that it is so highly reductive that it reveals only the largest
features of an observed world. The Sydney Connection appeared to me first as a
group of seizures which seemed too large for the Australian market which I put in a
table labelled ‘for export’. It was only as I investigated this group, using more
traditional research techniques that the greater pattern emerged. The Sydney
Connection was a ‘found’ piece, discovered through the technique described: firstly,
the lens of economic history was employed; then the major features revealed by this
lens were explored using traditional research methods, so that the economic history
drove the research.

The method I have used to analyse the cannabis market in Australia could be
applied just as easily to drug markets in Mexico or Canada or England: estimate the
size of the market from population estimates; determine the regime of prohibition;
look at the seizure figures. Is export indicated? Does the percentage seized vary with
the regime of prohibition? Are there any anomolous seizures? If so, investigate these
traffickers. The results would be intruiging.

• One of my central ideas was that there were regimes of prohibition which was
an extension of the idea of the regime of prohibition, which was the quantitative way
I developed for measuring prohibition.

255

• Regime of prohibition proved a very fruitful idea. It led me to my three laws of
the illicit cannabis market, the propositions that price, corruption and the percentage
seized vary with the regime of prohibition. Stripped of their jargon, these
propositions are the common sense observations that when the police crack down,
seizures, price and the value of the black market increase proportionally. By
adapting a ‘scientific’ framework and by measuring and testing these propositions
quantitatively, I was led to the unexpected discovery of the Sydney Connection, my
terra incognita, my great, unknown land.

• The notion of the Sydney Connection and of its connection with the murder of
Donald Mackay, likewise proved fruitful, as the previous chapter argues.
Of course, it is somewhat ironic that such a determinedly scientific approach as
mine should end up producing as its major insight a conspiracy theory, but that is the
nature of the top level of the international drug trade. It is a massive, illicit industry,
organised through conspiracies. Nugan Hand was a well-known conspiracy before
me. McCoy, Moffitt and Bottom had written about the connections between U.S. and
Australian organised crime before me. I have simply suggested a functional reason
to explain a known conspiracy between U.S. and Australian organised crime, the
Sydney Connection, and examined two examples of this drug-smuggling route. If
this is ironic, it is because irony is almost the building block of this illicit world. To
truly appreciate ‘the Joke’, ‘the Laugh’ or ‘the Giggle’, requires a very bleak sense
of irony indeed.

What May Have Gone Wrong in the Research?

One of the problems with a quantitative approach to history is that many of the
figures are rubbery. The social world can not be measured with the same certainty as
aspects of the physical world, such as height, width and weight. This raises doubts
about the accuracy of a quantitative approach. The more I got to know the official
figures, the more I realised how rubbery they were. Even the number of drug
offences for a particular year (which I expected to be a stable figure) would vary by
a few hundred according to the source I consulted. The reason for this (as I
discovered) was that as cases were appealed, and as the appeals were won and lost,
the number of successful drug offences for that year would also rise and fall.
Fortunately, these rises and falls were small (less than 1%), and had little effect on
my calculations. These imprecision in our measures should not dissuade us from
adopting the scientific approach of making and testing numerical hypotheses.
Surprisingly, the figures which proved the most rubbery were the estimates of the
size of Australia’s cannabis using population, even though these were conducted by
professional polling organisations. There are obviously great difficulties for

256

companies trying to poll cannabis users, because cannabis use is illegal and
respondents are being asked to disclose criminal behaviour. At times the polls can
vary wildly. Nothing shows the rubberiness of the polls as much as the difference
between the estimates of the population of cannabis users in Australia in 1988, as
measured by the Morgan poll and the National Campaign Against Drug Abuse
(NCADA) poll. Morgan’s estimates were half that of the NCADA poll.

Since these polls are used to determine the size of the market, surely this has dire
consequences for any attempts to measure the cannabis market from them? Firstly,
the polls are not usually this unreliable. Of the twelve polls I know of, I mention the
disparity between NCADA 1988 and Morgan 1988 because this is the greatest
difference between polls; over a 25 year period, this is the worst case. There are
other instances (see my analysis of Clements and Daryal’s method) where the polls
have surprised me with their consistency. As a mitigating circumstance, this great
difference occurred in polls conducted by differing organisations, NCADA and
Morgan. Because sensitive information is being asked for, the way the question is
asked is important. From the polls I have looked at, Morgan historically guesses low,
and I avoid using Morgan where possible.

Because the cannabis market is illicit, we have no idea of the size, whether it is 20
tonnes, 200 tonnes or 2000 tonnes. However, the population figures can be used (in
two differing ways) to give us a reasonable ball park estimate. By using other
figures, such as the seizure figures, it is possible to check this estimate. As I
emphasise, the model has to be ‘harmonious’ and the percentage of the market
seized has to be a believable percentage of the estimated market size.

What Could Be Done Differently?

The main question I leave unanswered is the political role of the Nugan Hand Bank
in a clandestine campaign of destabilisation of the Whitlam government. This area
lies remarkably adjacent to my excavations, but I think it belongs to a history of the
Whitlam government, rather than my history of cannabis. I address the question of a
CIA ‘dirty tricks’ campaign against the Whitlam government in Appendix 2, but this
is an area that deserves further exploration.

There was an enormous amount of research in my work; but there was much
more I could have done. Early on in my project, I spent a month in Canberra
researching material in the National Archives of Australia; I have used the Sackville
royal commission archives in Adelaide, and the Fitzgerald archives when in
Brisbane. But my strategy was to focus on alternative archives, rather than official
archives, and I did not research the archives of Williams, Costigan, Moffitt, Stewart,
Woodward and Wood, relying on their reports and other secondary sources such as

257

writers like Manderson, McCoy, Whitton, Bottom and others. This was always going
to be the result of my considered research strategy: to downplay the official archives
and search informal and alternative archives.

There were a number of alternative archives I did not use. Tim Anderson (who
was secretary of the NSW Civil Liberties Council) was keen to have me as
researcher examine the NSW Civil Liberties Council’s archives. I was never able to
take up his offer, because I could not afford to spend time in Sydney. However, it
would provide an excellent archive for some researcher. Likewise, I was unable to
track down the Australian Union of Students (AUS) archives, another alternative
archive, which I suspect would prove most valuable.

It could be said that I have treated certain writers (Hickie, Manderson, McCoy,
and Whitton) fairly uncritically; and it is true that the technique I adopted with
McCoy and Manderson was to stand upon their shoulders, rather than to examine
their foundations. As I saw it, my role was to do original research, not follow in their
trail. I extend McCoy with the idea of the Sydney Connection, and I complement
Manderson by using alternative archives, but it was never my intention to critically
re-examine their work. However, the example of Bottom shows that I am prepared to
criticise the tribe of scribes, and not just judges. Although I use Bottom as a
secondary source as much as I use Hickie, Manderson, McCoy and Whitton, I
criticise his views of the origin of organised crime in Australia, even though I value
his work. The lack of criticism of the other writers indicates that I found no
substantial differences between them and myself.

Appendix 1

The White Knight—Sir Peter Abeles and his circle

Transport supremo, Emil Herbert Peter Abeles, (1924 -1999) was one of the most
influential business figures in Australian history, a man with considerable political
clout, whoever was in power. Knighted by NSW Liberal Premier Askin in 1972, it
was under Labor Prime Minister Bob Hawke in the eighties that ‘the White Knight’
moved to the centre of power. In the ‘Era of Mates’, Sir Peter Abeles was First Mate.
Abeles’ obituaries in 1999 repeated versions of the ‘rags to riches’ story, while
hinting at a darker side. The ABC’s Elizabeth Jackson informed her audience he was
‘a penniless Hungarian migrant who arrived in Australia in 1949 and achieved more
financial success in Australian and international business than anyone but his friend
and business partner, Rupert Murdoch.’ Like other reporters, she saved the sting for
the tail where investigative reporter Wendy Bacon guardedly commented on ‘some
corrupt activities that he was involved in in Australia involving the Transport
Workers’ Union and also his connections with the US Mafia’.1

Born in the Austrian capital of Vienna in 1924 of Hungarian Jewish parents, Peter
Abeles arrived in Australia in 1949, fleeing the communist advance in Hungary. In
1950 he started up a trucking company, Alltrans, with two second hand trucks. By
1967, when it merged with Thomas National Transport (TNT), Alltrans had 500
trucks. From these humble beginnings, Abeles transport empire expanded worldwide,
moving into shipping and aviation as well as trucks. By the late 1980s, TNT
was one of the two largest listed transport groups in the world. Joining forces with
Rupert Murdoch, the pair took over Ansett Transport Industries in 1979, and, from
1980 to 1992, Sir Peter was Ansett’s joint managing director and chief executive.
Besides Murdoch, Abeles established business ventures with other members of the
super-rich including John Singleton and John Elliott. Abeles was Australia’s postwar
immigration success story.

The billionaire businessman had friends on both sides of politics. His first great
political ally was the Liberal Premier of New South Wales, Sir Robert Askin (1965-
1975), though Abeles is more widely remembered as the capitalist who befriended
the nation’s longest serving Labor Prime Minister Bob Hawke.

The election of Hawke as Labor Prime Minister in 1983 ushered in a new era in
ALP politics — the era of the Accord, of consensus between government, unions
and business. The Economic Summit of 1983 was the first time many saw the
Hawke/Abeles friendship on display. In the following years, the friendship took on a
very public profile as Abeles was appointed to the Reserve Bank Board, the

259

Commission for the Future, and given other prominent public positions. In
November 1988, Bob Hawke asked him to witness the now infamous Kirribilli
Agreement — the plan which outlined how Bob Hawke was meant to hand the reins
of power to his deputy, Paul Keating. Despite this prominence in business and public
affairs and his unrivalled closeness to the government, Abeles somehow managed to
avoid the glare of publicity, keeping himself very much in the shadows. He was a
man who enjoyed, in Frank Hardy’s famous phrase, power without glory.

Hawke, who cried at Abeles’ funeral, described Abeles as his closest friend. He
said Abeles had taught him that ‘there were people in business who were decent and
generous’. This generosity did not extend to labour unions. When his partner, Rupert
Murdoch, decided to take on the militant, left-wing printers at Wapping in East
London in 1986 after sacking thousands of printers, Abeles stood with him shoulder
to shoulder, using TNT trucks to break through picket-lines to deliver Murdoch’s
newspapers throughout Britain. TNT’s contract with Murdoch’s News Limited was
worth $100 million, and it helped transform TNT into one of the leading transport
companies in Britain. Wapping coincided with a deepening relationship between
Abeles and Murdoch.2

The Pilots’ Dispute of 1989 saw the two billionaires, the joint owners of Ansett
Airlines, align to crush another union, the Pilots Federation, which was campaigning
for a wage rise. Prime Minister Bob Hawke, a former trade union leader, sided with
the billionaire owners, publicly declaring ‘war’ on the Pilots Federation. The Hawke
Government provided a subsidy to fund the airline companies during the dispute,
and provided Ansett with military aircraft and pilots to break the strike.3

The recession of 1989, to which he was slow to respond, brought Abeles undone.
Abeles spent enormous amounts purchasing seventy-seven new aircraft to transform
Ansett into a world class airline. He built Australia’s most formidable transport
empire, but he lost it under a mountain of debt. By the time he stepped down as
managing director in 1992, TNT had subsidiaries in 80 countries throughout the
world but debts worth $1.3 billion, plus another $4 billion tied up in Ansett Airlines,
which it owned with Mr Murdoch’s News Ltd. The recession caught out Abeles’ ally
Murdoch as well, who barely survived his own debt crisis. By the late nineties,
Abeles’ personal wealth was estimated at a mere $68 million.4

In its obituary for Abeles, The Australian (owned by Abeles’ friend and long-time
business partner, Rupert Murdoch) dismissed the ‘conspiracy theorists’ who
suggested Sir Peter Abeles was the Mr Big of organised crime in Australia with this
interesting piece of spin:

A large and beefy man, who was always affected by a slight lisp and who
retained a strong Hungarian accent, Sir Peter could project a rather sinister
image. This, in turn, led to vague but insistent rumours that he was some sort

260

of Mr Big in the Australian crime scene. There was never any foundation to
the rumours but when it was revealed that TNT had paid - quite openly, with
Reserve Bank permission - a consultancy fee to a US firm with links to the
Mafia, the conspiracy theorists had a field day. Sir Peter shrugged off the
allegations as “a real joke”.5

The Murdoch media largely avoided the Abeles/Mafia story, as did the Packer
media. As Wendy Bacon noted it was only the ABC and the National Times, under
Brian Toohey, who pursued this story, even though it was an important story with
significant political questions to be asked given the relationship between Sir Peter
Abeles and the leaders of the Labor Party. But, as Wendy Bacon commented ‘if
nobody else is asking those questions, it can look like obsession, it can be called
obsession, and it was’. Bob Bottom’s treatment of the Abeles/Mafia deal in The
Godfather in Australia is indicative of how restrained the Australian media were:
Bottom, Australia’s top crime reporter, who wrote ‘without fear or favour’
mentioned the deal but dared not even name Abeles, referring to Abeles in code as
‘the knighted industrialist’.6

From the beginning of the investigation of organised crime in Australia, suspicion
was raised about Abeles and TNT. Australia’s first royal commission into organised
crime, Moffitt’s royal commission into NSW clubs, was told by Commonwealth
Police Inspector Dixon that, from his information, TNTt were backed by money
from American syndicated crime.7

Further details about deals between Abeles and the U.S. mafia came out during
the trial of Jimmy Fratianno, the boss of the U.S. West Coast Mafia, who was the
San Francisco Connection for Riley and Csidei and the source of Csidei’s ‘Mafia
superweed’. Strengthening the Sydney Connection ties, the Abeles/Mafia deal was
brokered by Bela Csidei and involved Rudy Tham, the head of the West Coast
Teamsters with whom Csidei was photographed in San Francisco in 1976. It seems
Abeles wanted to expand into the U.S. but was having industrial trouble which Tham
was asked to fix. Tham in turn introduced Abeles and Csidei to some colorful
friends, ‘wiseguys’ as the Americans call them, whose nick-names were ‘Little
Ralph’ and ‘Benny Eggs’ who were said to be associates of the Vito Genovese crime
family from New York. Abeles agreed to buy a trucking business that his new
friends owned for $700,000, and he gave them a 20% stake in his U.S. operations as
part of the deal. With this Teamster brokered deal, San Francisco became the
gateway for TNT’s expansion into America. The best account of this murky and
under-reported episode can be found in The Crimes of Patriots. Kwitny details the
close relationship between Abeles’ circle and Bernie Houghton and Michael Hand,
and records how Bela Csidei was taken under Abeles’ wing as a boy ‘almost as a
son’. 8

262

Sir Robert Askin — Premier of NSW, 1965-1975

Born in 1909, Bob Askin was elected to the NSW Legislative Assembly in 1950 and
became Liberal Leader in 1959. An unusual Liberal leader with a ‘larrikin’
reputation, Askin became NSW Premier in 1965 after running Australia’s first lawand-
order campaign, setting the model that men like Bjelke-Petersen would follow.
Staunchly anti-communist and pro-American, he altered the NSW drug laws in line
with the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, which was sponsored by the USA.
His reaction to anti-Vietnam demonstrators who were blocking the presidential
motorcade during President Johnson’s Australian tour in 1966 is legendary: ‘Run
over the bastards!’ Askin is reputed to have said.

Askin was Australia’s original ‘Nixonite’. Although he campaigned on law-andorder,
Askin’s decade of power was an era of unparalleled corruption, and both he
and his Police Commissioner Fred Hanson were said to be involved.

During the Askin years, Sydney’s crime lords and corrupt police prospered.

Thanks to the impetus of the R and R tours, Sydney’s already flourishing vice trade
became world class. Thanks to the war in Laos, Sydney was a player in the global
drug trade via the Corset Gang.

David Hickie, who traced the history of modern organised crime in Sydney
through to its institutionalisation during the Askin era in The Prince and the
Premier, characterised the decade of Askin’s rule as NSW Premier as a period of
unparalleled political and police corruption when organised crime boomed. With the
impetus of the R and R tours, Sydney’s vice trade prospered as never before. In four
years, the six baccarat schools ringing Kings Cross were converted into a city-wide
network of 14 luxury casinos like the Forbes Club, the Telford Club and the Double
Bay Bridge Club, which operated seven nights a week. Although these clubs were
illegal, they were never raided by the police who claimed to be unable to find them.
The public and the media had no such problems. The Forbes Club, which nestled
directly opposite the ABC Williams Street studio, was regularly photographed on
prime-time TV shows like This Day Tonight, and was known to every taxi driver in
Sydney.9

David Hickie described Askin as ‘more than a politician receiving pay-offs’.
According to Hickie, Askin was ‘intimately involved’, one of those ‘running the
show’:

Put simply, during Askin’s 1965-75 record term as Premier and Treasurer, he
and Police Commissioners Allen and Hanson established an arrangement
under which thousands of dollars weekly in bribes and pay-offs were handed
over by the gambling clubs.10

This view was shared by anti-corruption campaigner, John Hatton MLA, (South
Coast, NSW), who stated in the NSW Parliament that:

263

Under the Askin government ... the real penetration of Australian crime by
overseas mobsters, gangsters and the mafia took place. The shopfront
gambling and rackets came of age ... I have no doubt that Askin and Police
Commissioner Hanson knew of and may have encouraged those activities.
One is prompted to ask, were they involved, and to what extent?11

Throughout his decade long premiership, Askin faced allegations about his
involvement with a group of anti-communist businessmen who were called ‘the
Hungarian Mafia’ and who were also known as ‘Askin’s Knights’ (because Askin
recommended them all for knighthoods). Prominent among these businessmen were
Sir Paul Strasser and Sir Peter Abeles. Askin also had a close relationship to
businessmen involved in the controversial Woolloomooloo development in the early
70s, leading up to the sensational Juanita Nielsen murder. He regularly dined in a
discreet back room at Bernie Houghton’s Bourbon ‘n Beefsteak Bar in Kings Cross
with one of these businessmen. On his retirement, Askin was given an office at 55
Macquarie Street, overlooking Circular Quay, where his neighbours were the Nugan
Hand Bank. In January 1978, Mike Hand announced that Sir Robert Askin might be
joining Nugan Hand as chairman, though nothing seems to have come of this. 12

A few months after Askin’s retirement as premier, fifty of Sydney’s leading
citizens attended a farewell dinner in his honour at the Vaucluse mansion of Sir
Peter Abeles in May 1975. Askin joined Sir Peter Abeles, Sir Arthur George and Sir
Ian Potter on the board of TNT. By 1978 he had 110,000 shares in TNT. Abeles,
Strasser and Askin were regular poker players at Abeles’ Vaucluse mansion where
the other players included Kerry Packer and Rupert Murdoch.13

In July 1979, Askin was named during the Barton committal hearings. Bela
Csidei told the court that crooked financier, Alexander Barton had told him they
should get help from Premier Askin to stop a Corporate Affairs Commission
investigation. Csidei claimed that Barton said: ‘You had better talk to Sir Peter
Abeles. Sir Peter can in turn talk to Bob Askin. It is their duty to help. Otherwise I
will take them all down with me.’14

Merv Wood, NSW Police Commissioner (1976 -1979)

Mervyn Thomas Wood was born April 30 1917 in Redfern where his father was a
well-known police sergeant. With uncles and an older brother who were also
members of the NSW police, it came as no surprise when Mervyn Thomas Wood
joined NSW’s finest as a cadet in 1935.

A big, powerful man, Murray Riley’s future sculling partner was one of the greats
of the sport. Wood represented Australia at every Olympic from Berlin in 1936 to
Melbourne in 1956. Despite spending his best years serving as a pilot with the
RAAF, Wood won one Olympic gold medal in Oslo in 1948, two silver medals, and

264

the bronze medal for double sculls he shared with Murray Riley in Melbourne in
1956 when Wood was already thirty-nine years old.

Wood’s police career was relatively uneventful until he was appointed NSW
police commissioner in December 1976. However, his thirty month reign as police
commissioner was one the most turbulent periods in the history of the NSW force. It
was a time of numerous murders, including the murder of Donald Mackay, and
others like the menage a trois murders in Bronte, to which Wood found himself
linked. Accusations abounded about the corruption in the NSW force. There were
allegations about the payment of protection money to police and politicians;
allegations that Wood was refusing to close down the illegal casinos; allegations that
Wood associated with organised crime figures like Abe Saffron and George
Freeman. The Murray Riley/Anoa affair in 1978 and Riley’s successful evasion of
the NSW police did nothing for the battered reputation of the force nor for its
besieged commissioner.

The allegations reached a peak in mid 1979 when an internal police Criminal
Intelligence Unit report was leaked which contained damaging allegations relating to
US and Australian organised crime figures as well as the heavy involvement of
NSW police in armed hold-ups, robberies, gambling, and drugs. Wood called the
accusations ‘scurrilous lies’, but he resigned in June 1979 ‘to protect the reputation
and standing of the NSW police force’.15

The most damaging allegation, the one that followed him into retirement, was that
Commissioner Wood had conspired with Murray Farquhar, Chief Stipendiary
Magistrate, and solicitor Mr Morgan Ryan to pervert the course of justice in relation
to the sentencing of two drug offenders, Roy Cessna and Timothy Milner. The two
men had been charged with possession of 137kg of cannabis. Despite the large
quantity of cannabis involved, both were dealt with summarily, allegedly by
agreement between the parties. As a consequence, Cessna received only a small fine.
After several lengthy investigations, Commissioner Wood was charged with
perversion of the course of justice in 1987, but an order was made for a permanent
stay of proceedings in 1991.16

Appendix 2:

Gough Whitlam on CIA activities in Australia

The main question I leave unanswered is the extent of the Riley/Nugan Hand
conspiracy. Did it include police commissioner Merv Wood, or ex-premier Sir
Robert Askin, or transport mogul Sir Peter Abeles? Each was close to a Sydney
Connection principal, but simply knowing Murray Riley, or Bela Csidei, or Frank
Nugan was not itself a crime.

Nugan Hand was a multi-purpose conspiracy; it was obviously far more than a
drug trafficking operation, but it was this aspect of Nugan Hand which was my
concern. The Nugan Hand principals also played a political role in the
destabilisation of the Whitlam government. The allegations were that Michael Hand
helped forge documents during the Loans Affair and the Cairns Affair, while Frank
Nugan was the conduit for CIA money to the Liberal Party via Sir Robert Askin.

I include this extract from the a speech that Gough Whitlam made in Parliament
on 24 May 1977 calling for a royal commission into CIA activities in Australia for
two reasons: to address the question of a CIA inspired ‘dirty tricks’ campaign in
1975; and to provide another motive for the murder.

At the time of the murder of Donald Mackay the US-Australian alliance was in
crisis over the events of 11 November 1975 and the revelations of Christopher
Boyce. Boyce was employed by TRW, an aerospace firm in the U.S. which
monitored Pine Gap, the US spy base in central Australia at the heart of the ‘security
crisis’. Boyce was in charge of the top secret code room at TRW, in a position to
monitor and decode messages from the CIA and Task Force 157 in Australia.
Christopher Boyce said: “If you think Chile’s bad, you should see what the CIA is
doing in Australia.”

One of Whitlam’s key allegations was that the CIA was funding the conservative
parties. Frank Nugan was the banker for the CIA in Australia, and he was sharing
offices with Sir Robert Askin, a ‘bagman’ for the Liberal Party. He had every reason
to be worried about the royal commission into CIA activities in Australia Gough
Whitlam was seeking in this speech made seven weeks before Mackay’s murder:1

266

Mr E. G. WHITLAM: Concern about the recent allegations is not confined to
my Party. It is shared by the principal figures in this debate-not least by the
Americans themselves. Yesterday, the new United States Ambassador in his
first Press conference here declared that he was very much concerned at the
allegations he had seen in the Press. Two weeks ago, the United States
Senate Committee on Intelligence under the chairmanship of Senator Inouye
of Hawaii asked the Central Intelligence Agency for a report of its activities in
Australia. On the basis of that report, the Committee will decide whether to
pursue its inquiries. That report has not even been presented to the Senate
Committee, yet the Prime Minister has prejudged the result of it. If it is good
enough for the Americans, our allies, to show a prompt and proper concern
about these matters, why should not the Australian Government do likewise?
Alliances are not strengthened by covert operations or by condoning and
covering up such covert operations.

The people who have made the allegations are not fanatics, crackpots or
headline seekers. Some of them are former officers of the CIA itself. Many of
them have worked inside the organisation and become disenchanted with
some of its methods. So, too, have American senators, congressmen, cabinet
ministers and American Presidents now become disillusioned with the
operations of the CIA in past years. One does not have to admire personally
the people who have made these allegations to accept the fact that they know
what they are talking about. Mr Victor Marchetti worked for the CIA for 14
years finally becoming executive assistant to the deputy director. He is the coauthor
of a book The CIA and the Cult of Intelligence which was so
authoritative, so well-informed and so accurate in its disclosure of facts that
the U.S. Administration took protracted legal action to have it banned. At the
insistence of the CIA, it was finally censored and 168 passages were deleted
by court order. The legal battle was a tribute to Mr Marchetti’s honesty and
accuracy-to his credibility. His facts have never been challenged by the United
States Government or the intelligence community. He is a free man.

Other allegations have been made by Mr Phillip Agee who was employed by
the CIA for 12 years. On his own admission, he was engaged on destabilising
political parties and governments in Latin America. As I mentioned 3 weeks
ago, Australia had some small part as a proxy for the CIA in such operations
in Chile until 4 years ago. Mr Agee recounted his experiences in another
disturbing book, Inside the Company- CIA Diary. Again, his facts have never
been challenged. Mr Speaker, whatever you may think of his motives or
ethics, the only point at issue here is whether he is credible. The Foreign
Minister (Mr Peacock) enhanced Mr Agee’s credibility last week when he
confirmed that people named by him were indeed CIA officers. The Prime
Minister has made a feeble attempt to exonerate his Foreign Minister for his
indiscretion. But there is no doubt that the Minister has given substance to Mr
Agee’s allegation. Mr Agee has aroused the anger of the British Government
and he is being deported for unspecified activities harmful to the security of
the United Kingdom. What is important in this context is that the United States
Government which employed him as a spy for 12 years is taking no legal
action against him. He is free to return to the United States if he wishes to do
so. He is being deported from Great Britain. He is not being extradited.
The Prime Minister has poured scorn on Christopher Boyce, whose initial
allegations were debated in this House 3 weeks ago. Boyce was employed by
TRW, an aerospace firm which has links with secret American facilities in

267

Australia. He is presently appealing against his conviction for espionage.
Whether or not his motive was as he said-that he was disgusted at the way
the CIA was deceiving the Australian Government-there is only one relevant
question to be asked about Boyce: Was he in a position to learn the
information that he has disclosed? The New York Times in a 7-page article 2
days ago revealed that indeed he was. Boyce was in charge of the top secret
code room at TRW where he was apparently in a position to monitor and
decode CIA messages to and from its facilities in Australia. His allegations,
profoundly disturbing cannot be dismissed. Sure, he is a convict. He was, as
the radio program AM described him this morning, a college dropout of 24
years of age. It is extraordinary that a man of that record and that experience
should be in such a confidential position. He was in a position to know facts.
No one knows whether he gave those facts. Maybe the U.S. Senate
Committee will ascertain that. Maybe if he was in this country, a royal
commissioner could ascertain that.

Another source of allegation is Mr K. Barton Osborn, a former CIA officer in
Vietnam who became disgusted with his work and left the agency. Another is
an Australian computer programmer, Mr P. L. Kealy, who worked at the joint
defence space research facility near Alice Springs for 5 years. Respected
Australian trade union officials have alleged CIA interference in union
activities. I gave the instances 3 weeks ago. The legal adviser to the Central
Land Office in Alice Springs, Mr Geoffrey Eames has claimed that the CIA has
intervened on behalf of American mining communities in the NT. More
recently, the Attorney-General of South Australia, Mr Peter Duncan, has said
that he has no reason to disbelieve that the CIA has been financing groups
seeking to destroy the Australian Union of Students. My colleague, the
honourable member for Hindmarsh (Mr Clyde Cameron), has spelt out in this
place how the CIA engaged in McCarthy-like operations against loyal and
trusted members of the Australian Labor Party. . . . .

I have named a few of the people who have disclosed information or have
expressed their disquiet about the nature of the CIA activities in Australia.
Surely the right honourable gentleman would not say that the CIA can act in
an unconstitutional way, contrary to international relationship or in an improper
way if a Labor Government is in power but that its actions are OK under a
Liberal Government. At no stage has the Opposition endorsed his allegations
or those of the others whom I have quoted. Our position was stated in a
resolution passed by the national executive of the Australian Labor Party 2
days ago. Mr Speaker, I ask leave to have that resolution incorporated in the
Hansard record.

Mr SPEAKER-Is leave granted? There being no objection, leave is granted.
The document read as follows-

The National Executive of the Australian Labor Party:
Noting allegations made during the past month that the United States Central
Intelligence Agency has engaged in improper activities in Australia, including
deception of the Australian Government, especially in relation to the
operations of the joint defence space research facility; manipulation of political
events in Australia in 1975; channelling of funds to Australian political parties
and interference in trade union activities in Australia;

Further noting that these allegations emanate from a variety of sources in the
United States, the United Kingdom and Australia;

Recognising that such activities would be inconsistent with the integrity and
mutual respect on which relations between Australia and the United States
should be based;

268

Believing that any improper activities in Australia by foreign intelligence
services should be a cause of the deepest concern to any Australian
Government, and endorsing in this context the statement made by Mr Justice
Hope in his Third Report on Intelligence and Security that ‘Australia’s
intelligence interests do not and cannot coincide with those of any other
country’;

Noting with appreciation that the Carter Administration has pledged to end
abuses by United States intelligence authorities of the sovereignty of other
countries;

Further noting with appreciation that the United States has called for a report
from the CIA on its activities in Australia;

1. Invites the United States Administration and Congress to investigate
fully the activities of the CIA in Australia and to report publicly on any
improprieties which may have occurred; and

2. Expresses the hope that such investigations will include full
examination of the allegations already made and
the receipt of personal testimony from persons who have made such
allegations.

Mr E. G. WHITLAM-The allegations to which 1 have referred are too grave
and too disquieting to be brushed aside by the Prime Minister. Their enormity
demands that they be fully investigated in Australia as they are now being
investigated in the United States. They are not isolated charges. Their
frequency, their detail and their very similarity give grounds for urgent
concern. Let me recount the more serious of them. Mr Boyce said at his trial
that his daily duties included continued deception against Australia. He
referred to an alleged project at one of the joint United States-Australian
facilities by which Australia would be cut out of certain information being
acquired through that facility-and he was working in TRW under my
Government and under the present Government. There have been claims that
telephone and telex calls in Australia could be monitored by one of the joint
facilities, a suggestion which provoked the Australian Financial Review-not
one of our most rabid or radical - journals-to comment in an editorial on 5
May:

Access by the Americans to our international communications effectively
means that American business might have the potential day by day to track
the progress of negotiations by its Australian competitors. That allegations of
such intrusion into Australia’s national sovereignty should go unanswered is
entirely unsatisfactory.

They have gone unanswered today. A former Australian employee at the Joint
Defence Space Research Facility told the Canberra Times that he doubted
whether Australian politicians were told all about the functions of the Facility.
Mr Marchetti told the Sydney Sun:

Boyce has proof that the CIA manipulated political events in Australia in 1975
which led to the downfall of the Whitlam Government.

Mr Boyce himself remarked:

If you think Chile’s bad, you should see what the CIA is doing in Australia.
Mr Agee told the Australian Broadcasting Commission that he had no doubt
that an Australian social democratic government ‘which shows a certain
independence’ would be undermined by the CIA. Mr Agee should know. That
is what he was doing in South America.

A former CIA officer told the National Times that the National Country Party
was a recipient of CIA funds. The way this information emerged is particularly
significant. He was being interviewed by another former agent, Mr Osborn,

269

and the interview was reported in the National Times on 16 May. Mr Marchetti,
quoting Mr Richard Lee Stallings, has said that financing of conservative
parties in Australia had to his knowledge gone on since 1967. That is well
before the time of my Government. The allegations of interference in union
activities are too numerous to list here, but they have been widely reported by
responsible newspapers and the Australian broadcasting Commission. The
most glaring example of CIA interference in Australia affairs was the telex
message sent from Washington on 10 November 1975 to the Acting Director
of ASIO, the text of which was published in the Australian Financial Review of
29 April. That message, which appears in Hansard at page 1520, was a clear
example of the attempted deception of the Australian Government by the
American intelligence community. It sought to make use of Australia’s
counter-intelligence organisation in order to deceive the elected Government.

The message was offensive in tone, deceitful in intent and sinister in its
implications.

It is utterly unsatisfactory for the Prime Minister to say that Mr Justice Hope
has investigated the activities of the foreign intelligence services in Australia
and that therefore no Further inquiry is needed. The point is that these
allegations had not been made before Mr Justice Hope concluded his
investigation. They are new charges based on new allegations which were not
available to Mr Justice Hope. They should be placed before him not in a public
inquiry, as the Prime Minister implies, but in the manner in which previous
evidence was presented to him and assessed by him. We all know, as a result
of Mr Justice Hope’s inquiry, how necessary and how prudent it was to have
an inquiry into our intelligence and security services. These later allegations
surely should be assessed with no less urgency and with no less care.

The Cristian Family November 2006

We Stand For NO SYSTEM

Kindom (Do No Harm Communities) is the dream for freedom, but it is the dream for the freedom of those around us who also live the dream of freedom, because it is in living for the freedom of others that we get our freedom. When we live for the dreams of Kindom of those around us, we live life as a gift because we live for (dedicate our lives to) their dream of freedom, truth, peace, joy, abundance, etc, just as they live for our Kindom dreams too. This is true co-creation (cooperation) with no attack on the uniqueness of each of us. When we live this way, we have no need for any man-made system - everything/everyone has already been taken care of by our love for life.

Just as we do not have to jump 10 feet across the room to grab our next breath, neither do we have to worry about food, water and shelter because it has all been taken care of as we each co-create Kindoms/Kin-Domains for everyone. Now everybody and everything of the dream of life that is Kindom/Paradise is free (has been set free once again). The issue is greed and selfishness, power and control trips, arrogance, ignorance, being fed many many lies and being traumatised. The issue is not overpopulation - there is more than enough land available for every family to have a hectare (2.5 acres Kin-Domain) to care for. The land of Australia can provide a Kin-Domain for every family across Earth, each with a food forest, clean fresh drinking water and plenty of space for building natural do no harm habitats and with plenty of land left over.

Everyone must have the freedom to take full-responsibility for their lives, for the water they drink, the food they eat and for their shelter. Currently, "The System" forces everyone to give up taking full-responsibility so that we become grown up children accustomed to sucking on the nipples of "The System" corporations for everything, having to use money to get by and to follow the rules of money because we are not co-creating freedom, peace, truth, joy and abundance for each other. Money only leads to haves and have nots and all the abuse, manipulation and distractions that we are subjected to as slaves to money.

When we give up living for other's Kindom dreams, we start creating hell ("The System") all around us because we become self-centred - now it's all about "my freedom","my money", "my land", "my belief", "my saviour", "mine", "mine","mine", "i","i", "i", "own", "own", "own", etc. To protect what we claim we own requires a man-made system with FORCE to protect those self-centred claims. This is ALL trauma based and all story-telling (brainwashing/braindirtying).

NO SYSTEM = KINDOM/DO NO HARM COMMUNITIES
NO SYSTEM = KINDOM/DO NO HARM COMMUNITIES photo Kindom_zpsa6d24e8a.jpg

Our true freedom comes when we set our thoughts of freedom into motion so that we live freedom rather than just talking and thinking about it while we still slave for "The System". Kindom will not happen while we meditate for hours in the bush or do yoga retreats or wait for Jesus or follow the processes of the OPPT (One People's Public Trust now called One People). This is not freedom because we are not living freedom because we are living the story-telling of Jesus or Zeitgeist or The Secret or Thrive or One Earth/Consciousness/People.

Living Kindom is very, very hard work as we set about repairing the damage to MAN/Earth/Nature that we are ALL responsible for but the burden becomes lighter the more of us put our life-energy into the dream of returning Earth to Paradise. Day-after-day, we all have to work our arses off until Kindom is all around us (MAN) once again. This is the price we pay to set each other free on a piece of land (Kin-Domain), so that no one is under the image-power (education/brainwashing/story-telling) of another MAN anymore and so that everyone can have their space of love to create and live their unique, do no harm dreams. This only happens once we have the Kindoms set up so that everyone is provided for.

Once we re-create the food forests, whether on land or in the suburbs, we can re-claim our freedom, breaking the strangle-hold of "The System" because we are no longer reliant on its services and benefits and no longer turning each other into slaves of "The System", cogs in the wheels of "The System" machine. If we don't put the effort in to set everyone and everything free all around us then we still live in HELL ("The System"). The key is to live for everyone else's freedom so that we can have it too.

A Collection Of Various Love For Life Posts
Providing The Big Picture We See

Sequential Order

We ask you to NOT believe anything we say/share and instead use scrutiny like an intense blow torch and go where the logic of truth/sense takes you. This is very, very important. Put everything you believe up to the test of scrutiny to see how it stacks up. If you are true to your heart/senses and go where the logic of truth/sense takes you will find that NO belief, etc, will stand up to the test of scrutiny. They just do not stack up because they are lies/fraud.

After you have watched and read all the material and any questions are left unanswered, send us your landline number and we will use the internet phone as a free unlimited call. We are on Sydney NSW Australia time. Best times for us to chat are between 11.00am and 6.00pm.

It is critical that you fully comprehend Image Power, "Spelling", Trauma, Reaction To Trauma, Curses, Processing Curses, Full-Responsibility/Liability, Limited Liability/Responsibility (passing-the-back), Slavery, Senses/Sense vs Non-Sense/Senses, Re-Presenting Intellectual Property such as but not limited to "Name", Storytelling/Storytellers, Duality, Black-Magic, Belief, Lies, "i", All Seeing "i" (eye), etc..... These themes and others are covered over and over and over again.

If you do not comprehend these insights and are unable to use your senses to sense your way through all the non-sense/non-sensory-images that enslave MAN under their image power (darkness = "The System" = Hell), men and women will remain deeply trapped under a terrible state of trauma. Our intention is to inspire you to remedy by showing you how to move away from reacting to trauma in all its nefarious and devious forms.

Peaceful Transition Through Sacrifice And Service

We feel there is an essential peaceful do no harm transition required to get all of MAN back to standing on MANS feet without reliance upon another MAN for water, food, shelter. As it stands everyone in "The System" are highly dependent and reliant on the "group mind-set" that forms "The System" of slaves providing services and benefits for the emotionally addicted slaves to "The System" (and you can put us in the same basket too). The transition is to get MAN back to relying ONLY on nature without 3rd party interlopers, intermeddlers, interceders getting in the way. The transition is a team effort with the foresight for setting all of MAN free down-the-line so that MAN is no longer dependent on slaves and masters providing services, benefits, privileges and exclusivity while being bound to contracts, rituals, procedures, conditions, rules & regulations which compromises MAN severely.

This transition is all about shifting from limited liability/responsibility to full liability/responsibility. This full responsibility is all about caring for our health, nature all around us, clean uncorrupted (pure) water and food, partner/co-creator, children, shelter, animal-friends in partnership, etc. In "The System", we are already together destroying each other - we have to come together to create peace together so that we can all have peace. We cannot live peacefully when we are islands, not taking full responsibility for the lives of those around us until EVERYONE can take full responsibility for their life, which means that EVERYONE is healed of system trauma. In "The System", we all come together to make slaves of each other - now is the moment to come together to set each other free, to live for each other's freedom, peace, joy and abundance. Once we have set each other free, we are free.

Control The Land
And You Control MAN On The Land
Displace MAN From Land
And You Turn MAN Into Slaves

The Cristian Family Declaration

The Cristian family and The Love for Life Campaign are apolitical, non-religious, non-violent, anti weapons, anti drugs (both pharmaceutical and recreational) and anti any ideology that denies the existence of Do No Harm Communities (Kindoms) and suppresses the uniqueness and freedom of all men, women and children.

The Cristian family and our Love For Life work is unaligned to any big business corporation, intelligence agency, government body, "system" law, "system" think tanks, "system" green or environmental movements, religion, cult, sect, society (fraternity, brotherhood, sisterhood, order, club, etc,) secret or not, hidden agenda, law or sovereignty group, occult, esoteric, New Age or Old Age.

The Cristian family supports and promotes the remedy that brings an everlasting peace, freedom, truth, joy, abundance and do no harm for all of life without causing loss of uniqueness or the need for having slaves and rulers. We are not into following the one in front or being shepherds for sheeple. Most importantly, we take full-responsibility for everything we think, feel and do.

The Cristian family are not Christians.

THE CRISTIAN FAMILY PLEDGE

Being of clear brain, heart and intention, we each declare the following to be true:

• We have no intention of ending our own lives.

• We will not tolerate suppression of truth, ideas, freedom, or our work. We stand for freedom of speech.

• We stand together to support others in the expression of truths and freedom to speak out no matter how radical those ideas may seem.

• Standing for freedom takes courage; together we shall be strong in the face of all odds.

• If it is ever claimed that we have committed suicide, encountered an unfortunate accident, died of sickness/disease, disappeared, been institutionalized, or sold out financially or in any other way to self-interested factions, we declare those claims false and fabricated.

• We testify, assert and affirm without reservation, on behalf of all those who have dedicated their lives to the ending of secrecy and the promotion of freedom of thought, ideas and expression that we shall prevail.

• We Do Not Have Multiple Personality Disorders

Update Regarding The Love For Life
Home Page And Quick User Guide

We are turning the Love for Life Quick User Guide http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6608 into a blog of all the main insights of our work since March 2005, whether through articles, videos, podcasts or discussions/debates.

As we do not have the time to compile everything we have written into a book, as many have suggested we do, compiling all our most important work into one area of the website is a way of providing easy access to this work so those interested are able to fully comprehend the big picture.

Instead of having to find our different articles, videos, etc, in various parts of the website, it will all be accessible here: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6608 and here: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/3385.

Love For Life Videos

As amateurs and posted in the Quick User Guide below the Facebook links, we're currently creating and posting a series of videos called "The Dream Of Life" which covers the ground of all the Love For Life insights. We plan to have the videos completed by December 31st 2012. Once this is behind us, our intention is to create a 2 hour or so video covering the body of this work. All videos are embedded in the quick user guide http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6608 and uploaded in Arthur's YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/ArthurLoveForLife.

Love For Life Music

We have started recording songs, with others, that express the themes of Love For Life. They are now being posted on Arthur's YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/ArthurLoveForLife and are embedded in the quick user guide http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6608. We have over 100 songs to record. A few rough demos have already been used as the soundtrack on the first "Dream of Life" video.

About Us - Love For Life & The Cristian Family

Also, everything we, the Cristian family, have gone through, from bank fraud and the theft of the family home to death threats and attempts on Arthur's life, is documented in the Quick User Guide too. If you, the reader, are prepared to put the effort in, you will comprehend the extent to which we have all been tricked into becoming slaves, giving up our uniqueness and our full-responsibility for life and destroying everything of life to the point where life is in danger of dying out completely. You will also comprehend the remedy to all this chaos; a remedy that requires only love for life and the determination to do what needs to be done. Though our focus is very strongly on the remedy that creates a world of freedom, truth, peace, joy, abundance and Do No Harm for all of life without loss of uniqueness or the need for slaves and rulers, we realise that it is vital to comprehend how to get there and what stops us from getting there. This is why there is so much information on the hows and whys of everything going wrong in the world today. We are not into peddling conspiracy theories, we are into routing out all forms of organised crime.

THE CRISTIAN FAMILY SUPPORTS
FREEDOM OF SPEECH - FREEDOM OF THOUGHT

The Cristian Family November 2006

Posted Wednesday 17th June 2009
Updated September 2011

NSW Jewish Board Of Deputies
Has Threatened To Shut Down
The Love For Life Website

No Freedom Of Speech - No Freedom Of Thought

Love For Life does not support harm doing in any shape or form. However, we are supporters of free speech and post articles, documentaries, etc, that represent a wide cross section of ideas. See the Love For Life extensive research library where over 6000 documents, articles and videos are posted: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/82. We clearly see the evidence of the destruction to MAN and the earth that has been caused by ALL religions over the centuries and are therefore not supporters of religions, cults, sects or any group that demands conformity of thought, speech or action, or has rules, regulations or rituals that must be followed. Religions, nationalities and cultural "identities" are formed as a result of the brainwashing we receive from childhood. They are part of the tactics the Establishment uses to keep us all divided from one another and fighting one another.

All religions promote discrimination and division, leading to hatred and even violence and murder. None of them have yet to produce a remedy to all the suffering, poverty, unhappiness and discrimination in the world. If any religion truly had the remedy to all the suffering on earth, there would no longer be any suffering. What have Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, atheism and the New Age done to end the suffering in the world?

Since December 2006, there have been many attempts to take down the Love For Life website. Any attempts have been thwarted by Love For Life supporters inundating the harm-doers with emails, etc, objecting to them taking down the website for a variety of reasons. The trouble makers usually back off when they realise that they can post all their views, arguments, beliefs, etc, in the Love For Life website without censorship or restriction imposed. They get to see that even the Queen, Pope, Prime Minister, President of America, etc, can post all their views without hindrance or sabotage and that we support freedom of speech/thought which means we support the right of all sides to express their views.

Of note, there is a vast amount of information posted in the Love For Life website which we do not agree with but we leave it all up because we refuse to be biased, opinionated or self-centered/self-serving. Of the many thousands of comments posted over the years we have only removed posts containing secret links to commercial advertisements, terrible foul language, threats of violence and death, etc, and attacks on other people's characters that avoid the subject/debate at hand. Besides links to advertisements, we have taken down less than six comments due to the above. We usually leave everything up, all warts and all, even those posts threatening to do terrible things to Fiona, our children, our dogs, our friends, family & supporters, etc.

The Love For Life website has information from all sides on many subjects, whether about Islam, Judaism, Christianity, Law, health, psychology, mind control, vaccination, aspartame, MSG, Chemtrails etc. There are over 11,000 articles, documentaries etc on the website and they are so diverse that we are sure that everyone would be able to find something they loved and something they hated, if they took the time to search. If we removed all the articles hated by everyone, there would probably be nothing left! We are not anti anyone but freedom of speech is freedom of speech and no one should condemn the work of another without taking the time to research the subject themselves. Yes, there are articles by those who have a less-than-rosy-viewpoint of Judaism, but there are also articles on the dark side of Tibetan Buddhism (and it is very dark) for those who are interested in the truth: Tibet - Buddhism - Dalai Lama: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6271 Should the authors of these articles be abused and imprisoned for daring to challenge the widely conceived reputation of Buddhism as being the religion of peace and love and that of the Dalai Lama as a saint, or should those interested be allowed to study the work and come to their own conclusions? The same applies to all the articles, documentaries, etc, about Christianity, Islam, Freemasonry, New World Order, etc.

The Love for Life website also shows how the Rule of Law, the Bar, the Government, the Monarchy, the system of commerce, the local, national and multi/trans-national private corporations, all the courses and careers on offer from our universities, all the educators, scientists, academics and experts, the aristocrats and the Establishment bloodlines have also done NOTHING to end the suffering in the world. The website maps the insanity of a world where there is no help for those in need, just as there was no help available for us when we were victims of terrible bank fraud: "NSW Supreme Court Case - Macquarie Bank/Perpetual Limited vs Fiona Cristian - Victims Of Bank Fraud Condoned By Judges" http://loveforlife.com.au/node/5 (orchestrated, condoned and protected by an international crime syndicate/terrorist organisation of judges, barristers, registrars, lawyers, politicians, banksters, big business representatives, media moguls and other lackeys who, all together, put up a wall of silence despite our trying many, many avenues. After the family home was stolen and business destroyed we were left close to poverty and destitution caring for 4 young daughters. Three years later not much has changed regardless of all our efforts. Where were all the followers of all the religions to help us? Or do we have to be members of those religions to receive help from others involved in them?

The New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies accused us of being anti - Jewish, see: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6616 and http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6665 because we had posted an excerpt from James von Brun's book: Kill the Best Gentiles: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6054 in which he blames Jews for the problems of the world. Obviously this is not our view because of what we have stated above. We do not hate anyone, whatever religion they follow. We are always open to talk to any religious leader or politician and meet with any judge, member of the Bar, experts, academics, educators etc to share the remedy we offer that heals all the divisions between MAN and MAN, and MAN and the EARTH.

Today, a representative of the New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies is threatening to close the website down, because they have decided it is anti - Jewish and that we promote racism. What has the New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies done to end the suffering in the world? Can they show that they are concerned with the suffering of ALL men, women and children AND ARE SEEN TO BE DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT or are they only concerned with Jewish affairs? If so, they, along with all the other religions that only care for their own, are part of the problem, not part of the solution. The man who rang Arthur today was only concerned with Jewish affairs; he was not interested in our intentions or in anybody else, just as most Christians, Muslims, Sikhs, Catholics, etc, are only interested in their own. While we separate ourselves into groups, dividing ourselves from others with rules, regulations, rituals, procedures and conditions, we will never solve our problems.

No matter what we in the Western World Civilisation of Commerce have been promised by our politicians, religious leaders, scientists, educators, philosophers, etc, for the past two hundred years, all we have seen is ever-increasing destruction of men, women and children and the earth. None of the so-called experts and leaders we have been taught to rely on are coming up with a solution and none of them are taking full-responsibility for the fact that they can't handle the problem. All religious books talk about end times full of destruction and suffering but why do we have to follow this program when there is an alternative to hatred, mayhem and death? Why are our leaders following the program of destruction and death rather than exploring the alternatives? It seems that any mainstream politician, priest or academic are only interested in supporting the RULES OF THE DIVIDE, that maintain the haves and the have nots. For 200+ years, 99% of the world population have been so trained to pass on their responsibility for themselves, others and the earth, that the 1% of the population that make up the leaders of the rest of us are making all the decisions leading to the destruction of all of us and the earth. Let's not forget the education system that brainwashes the 99% of the population that we are free and have equal rights while, in fact, we are feathering the nests of those at the top.

At the root of all our problems is self-centredness, an unwillingness nurtured by the Establishment that keeps us concerned only with our own needs rather than the needs of others around us and the Earth. Instead of creating and releasing acts of love for those around us as gifts to benefit them and the earth, we take, take and take, until there is nothing left. The whole point of the Love for Life website is to show people the root of all our problems and to share the remedy. The extensive research library is there to attract browsers and to provide access to information not available through mainstream channels. If the New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies can, after careful examination of our work, prove that anything we are saying is wrong, we will be happy to accept their proof. If they cannot, and they are still insistent on closing the website down, they will be showing themselves to be traitors to MAN because they are not interested in pursuing any avenue that can end the suffering in the world.

All religions, corporations and organisations that support and maintain the Western World Civilisation of Commerce are part of the problem because our civilisation is a world of haves and have nots, racism, violence, hatred, poverty, sickness, discrimination, abuse, starvation, homelessness, corruption, collusion, vindictiveness, social unrest, arrogance, ignorance, fear, war and chaos. While we support civilisation, we support death and destruction because ALL civilisations that have ever existed are apocalyptic by design.

If we truly want peace on earth and freedom for all, we have to let go of all that which keeps us divided, and come together as MAN, conscious living co-creators of creation. The Love For Life website offers a remedy to the problems we all face in the form of DO NO HARM COMMUNITIES: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/3641 For more details see here: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6511 and here: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/3385 - We also highly recommend that everyone read the brilliant Russian books called The Ringing Cedars: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/1125 - The Love For Life Website Homepage also provides lots of inspiring remedy based information: http://loveforlife.com.au - If you want to be kept up to date with our work please register to the Love For Life Mailing List here: http://loveforlife.com.au/content/09/05/14/mailing-list.

Clarification Regarding Our Intentions
Behind The Use Of Donations

The Love For Life website is offered for free without a fee and without any conditions attached. If people are inspired to donate money, then we accept their gift and have provided an avenue for them to support the work we do through Fiona's Paypal or ANZ bank account http://loveforlife.com.au/node/8515. There is no obligation whatsoever to donate and all are equally welcome to our work and to our "time", whether they donate or not. Over the last 9 years, all the Love For Life work has been put out for free and it has often been donations from supporters that have enabled us to renew the domain name, etc, to keep the website going. While some complain that we have an avenue for donations, others complained when we didn't! Either use it or don't - the choice is yours.

Since Love For Life started March 2005 and website December 2006, Arthur has worked 16 hours a day, 7 days a week unpaid for much of this period, putting together the website and sharing insights to wake people up to what has been done to them, whether through the 11,500+ individual articles, videos, podcasts, debates, discussions, pdf's, research documents, etc, found amongst the 8,500+ posts, as well as helping many, many men and women over the phone, and through email, website correspondence, Facebook and YouTube, and creating the Love For Life food forest vege garden and Love For Life music recording studio. This is our life is a gift commitment to serve MAN/Nature/Earth but we are still severely compromised by "The System" and still have to give to Caesar what is claimed to belong to Caesar, which is where the donations help us.
