About the National Civic Council

The National Civic Council was formed by B. A. Santamaria in the early 1940s with a wide brief to build a Christian culture. Capitalism seemed to have failed, and with the economic and social disaster of the 1930s Great Depression, many believed that communism was the answer. The NCC was commissioned to take on the growing power of the communist party in the trade unions. Since the 1960s, the secular ideas of the Cultural Revolution have come to replace Judeo-Christian values, with profound effects on family formation, family life and the birth rate. By the 1980s, the secular idea of individualism, the idea that “I have a right to do as I please” became our society’s dominant philosophy. This hedonistic idea has corrupted the culture, as well as the political and economic systems. It is the idea behind economic deregulation – economic rationalism or globalism. Today individualism and economic Globalism are the greatest threats to the family and the Australian way of life.

Transgender: One shade of grey

book cover

About the book:
NCC’s National President, Patrick J. Byrne, has published a new book that delves into the push for transgender “rights” and how the law was changed in Australia in 2013 so that transgenders could now legally access those areas previously set aside for the opposite sex and criminalised denying transgenders access to facilities ordained for the opposite sex.  Order here.

TRANSGENDER: one shade of grey is a masterful critique of the transgender revolution and why the biological fact of male and female needs to be restored into law.   [$39.99 inc GST ]


Patrick Byrne finds that, the more the term gender identity is examined, the more it becomes uncertain, ambiguous and contradictory and leads into deep legal and cultural conflicts. The more the transgender world view is protected in law, the more people are threatened with legal, professional and cultural sanctions if they insist on recognising the biological fact that human beings are either male or female.

At the same time, the more laws and governments insist on gender-neutral language, gender-neutral toilets and sports in the cause of “diversity”, the more we are treated uniformly, same-same, as one shade of grey.

The author critiques the assumption behind transgender world view, that there is no human nature, raising the question: if there is no common human nature, how can there be universal human rights? This book poses deep and disturbing questions about the effect of gender identity politics on ordinary people and our democracy.   Order your copy at shop.newsweekly.com.au
