For a stronger Australia

Looking for an alternative approach to public policy?

Our Mission

The National Civic Council is an organisation that refuses extremes of left and right, and instead examines policy based on five primacies or principles. The NCC seeks to shape public policy to help people, families, communities and small business succeed.

About Us

What sets us apart

Our 5 Primacies

Our values as an organisation: the National Civic Council seeks to empower individuals, families and small businesses to build a healthy, flourishing, prosperous society for all Australians, based on careful analysis of how to improve on our nation’s current policies. We stand for the family, for human dignity and for an independent, free nation.


The basic unit of society, the foundation of the nation and the most effective provider of welfare to children, the sick or disabled, and the aged.


The small unit in agriculture (the family farm), business, government and unions, as opposed to monopolies and excessive centralisation.

Human Dignity

Respect for the integrity of each human being, from conception to natural death.


Founded on independent foreign policy based on the national interest, self-reliance in defence, and insistence on Australia’s sovereignty over financial markets or international agencies.

Judeo-Christian Values

The concept of the common good, and ethical objectivity.

Our Mission

Why we do what we do

The National Civic Council (NCC) has published News Weekly for over 80 years. Our first task is to present comprehensive post-Covid19 economic policies, based on the NCC’s five primacies.

These policies are to build industries that strategically strengthen Australia, reduce Australia’s reliance on China and provide well-paid jobs that rebuild the struggling middle class, nourish the family and make families independent of the welfare state.

Second, the NCC’s task is to expose and counter four key hostile ideologies in defence of human life and the family, inherent human rights and Australia as an independent, free nation:

Four Hostile Ideologies

  • Libertarianism, ‘the right to do as I please’, (e.g. unrestrained pursuit of pleasure or profit) in its cultural, economic and legal forms, undermines the natural family and a fair market economy;
  • Chinese communism, the ideology behind Beijing’s aggressive extension of power into the Asia Pacific region, and beyond;
  • Fluid gender ideology that is weaponising laws that attack the foundations of a tolerant democracy – freedom of speech, association and religion; and
  • Radical environmentalism that goes beyond protecting the environment to undermining both the energy needs of the nation and the development of important industries.

The National Civic Council’s job is to strengthen the economy to protect Australia’s sovereignty and to expose and defeat four hostile ideologies that undermine the Australian way of life.
