COVER STORY The meaning of Christmas
As we approach Christmas, our thoughts turn from the mundane activities of daily life to higher things: the celebration of Christmas with family and friends, the upcoming holidays, and, perhaps, the meaning of Christmas itself, when we celebrate the birth of a child in one of the distant corners of the Roman Empire, just over 2000 years ago.

FOREIGN AFFAIRS The more Zimbabwe changes, the more it stays the same
The overthrow of Zimbabwe’s tyrannical dictator, Robert Mugabe, is the result of a power struggle within the ZANU PF political party, not the restoration of democracy in this troubled country.

AGENDA FOR AUSTRALIA Putting the 'fair' back in the fair go for farmers
Countries should always seek to focus on industries where they enjoy natural competitive advantages and high productivity. In Australia, however, one industry that fits these criteria – agriculture – is in serious decline.

OPINION The new Reformation: How Christians found themselves on the 'wrong' side of history
Can we learn anything useful from history? Well, it depends on what we mean by useful. If by useful we mean some historical fact, the understanding of which enables us to change our present historical trajectory for the better – probably not. We are generally in the grip of large forces that are for the most part outside of our direct control. But if by useful we mean the understanding of some part of history that helps us to understand our own times, I think the answer is yes.

PHILOSOPHY AND SOCIETY Why Marxists will not engage with opponents
The campaigners for same-sex “marriage” promote their cause under two slogans, the one of vastly more importance than the other. They have so successfully drenched the mainstream media with “marriage equality!” that even the opponents of same-sex “marriage” are beguiled into using varieties of the question-begging phrase.

ECONOMICS Kim Beazley rides in as a white knight for the TPP
Since his arrival back in Australia after around six years as our ambassador to the United States, Kim Beazley (pictured below) has seemed to be trying to establish himself as something of an expert in matters geopolitical. Now apparently, he is extending his expertise to matters of international trade as well – if not globally, then certainly in respect of trade in Asia.

INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS Mergers could give unions a striking profile
Members of the Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) and the Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union (CFMEU) have voted to merge, to form a militant super union with 144,000 members.

MUSIC Sounds like ...: A vain search for meaning
One of the most elusive and intriguing areas to examine in music is something other than the music: lyrics. Although superficially similar to poetry, the priorities are very different. The most important aspect of lyrics is how they sound; the musicality comes first. In poetry the phonics, the musicality, is important – Shakespeare’s, Milton’s or Keats’ musicality, for instance, is extraordinary – but it is not as important as the layers of meaning.

CINEMA Casablanca: Contender for the 'perfect film'
This year is the 75th anniversary of Casablanca, the romantic and resonant melodrama praised by Umberto Eco for fusing together clichés and archetypes in such a moving way that it reaches Homeric depths and gives a glimpse of the sublime.

BOOK REVIEW Australia behind the scenes in WWII
Dufty defines SIGINT as the “science of understanding an enemy from its messages”. Exploitation can be through cryptanalysis, which is attempting to decrypt coded/enciphered messages; and traffic analysis, which is the obtaining of intelligence by studying the externals of the traffic. For example, looking for message numbering systems, preamble address groups (that is, groups which help in determining who the traffic is to and from and any other intended recipients, call-sign and frequency usage). All this can help in maintaining continuity on targets.

BOOK REVIEW Political sparks at the 'Friendly' Games
The signature event of the Games, however, did not involve the USSR versus the United States, but the Soviet Union versus Hungary.
