COVER STORY Decentralisation: an undeveloped country
In 1891, at the end of Melbourne’s first property boom, the nation’s original capital was the largest city in Australia with almost half a million inhabitants.

CANBERRA OBSERVED Millennials feel they've been left out in the cold
It is a sobering thought that the cohort of first-time voters at the last election were not even born when Paul Keating was Prime Minister; that the September 11 terrorist attacks occurred when they were preschoolers; and that the John Howard era coincided with their primary school years.

EDITORIAL Gas, power crises are due to renewables obsession by Peter Westmore
Despite Australia having vast reserves of natural gas and coal, state and federal governments have pursued policies that have caused an unprecedented shortage of electrical capacity, and the threat of serious shortages of gas for residential and industrial use.

WESTERN AUSTRALIA Barnett election wipe-out delivers WA to Labor
The West Australian state election on March 11 followed the trend of recent elections in which the incumbent Liberal Party was overwhelmingly defeated by the resurgent ALP. The ALP in WA is led by a former Navy lawyer and Kim Beazley protégé, Mark McGowan.

MULTICULTURALISM First among equals or an also-ran culture?
The Victorian Government’s recently launched a multicultural campaign entitled Victorian. And Proud of it. It is designed to make Victoria “a stronger, safer and more harmonious community”. But it is inherently flawed and counter productive.

WEST AUSTRALIAN LAW Domestic-violence laws disregard basic rights
Late last year the West Australian Parliament passed laws regarding domestic violence which pose an insidious threat to fundamental rights of citizens in that state.

INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS Fair Work Commission's disastrous penalty-rates decision
The decision of the Fair Work Commission to cut penalty rates for people in the retail, fast-food and hospitality industries will lead to a repeat of the unions’ WorkChoices campaign which cost John Howard government in 2007.

OPINION Trump-Russia allegations are smoke and mirrors
For generations, the left has screamed “McCarthyism” at any questioning of their activities or any question of communist or Soviet associations (I was accused of McCarthyism by a senior public servant when, at a university convocation meeting, I raised the question of student union funds being used for left-wing causes).

FOREIGN AFFAIRS Don't laugh: this is serious. Revival of Maoist play is a propaganda coup in Victoria
The Government of Victoria, led by leftist ALP Premier Daniel Andrews, is colluding with China’s President Xi Jinping to reintroduce hard-line Maoist Communism into China by sponsoring a season of the propaganda play, The Red Detachment of Women. The play, which opened on February 15 at the Victorian Arts Centre, was part of the Asia-Pacific Triennial of Performing Arts.

RURAL AFFAIRS Without new dams in the Basin, we're up the creek
The Federal Government has committed to building new dams. On the mighty Murray River, they should build Lock Zero near Wellington, South Australia, and dams on the Jingellic arm of the river in NSW and the Buffalo River near Myrtleford in Victoria.

CULTURAL HISTORY Pascal without pressure
Car drivers or bicycle riders who have experienced flat tyres will be familiar with the kilopascal, the decimal unit of air pressure. The unit derives its name from the famous French scientist, Blaise Pascal (1623–1662).

OPINION Scope for regeneration as Me Generation shuffles off
The self-serving ethics of the activist Baby Boomers in the 1960s and ’70s were baldly expressed in numerous catchphrases and aphorisms that they somehow imposed on an older generation as a worthy “liberation”, and that in essence amounted to an insistence on the unrestrained pursuit of one’s own way, regardless of others.

MUSIC Dying for exposure
I went to a restaurant last weekend and was given a reminder of what being an ordinary musician in Australia has become like these days.

CINEMA Kong: Skull Island: Ape-ocalypse Now
1933’s King Kong is arguably the classic, pioneering monster movie. Its innovative use of stop-motion and thrilling storyline make it a riveting watch even to this day, while its themes of man versus beast and civilisation versus savagery give it an extra intellectual edge.
