COVER STORY Current policies leave farmers high and dry in drought
The failure of autumn and winter rains across much of eastern Australia, particularly New South Wales and inland Queensland, is causing deep distress for many thousands of farming families, and the communities in which they live.

CANBERRA OBSERVED Captain and Lieutenant's $444 million munificence
Every so often governments get a sudden but inexplicable rush of blood to the head that results in a political decision that bypasses the usual administrative and public service checks and balances.

MEDICAL ETHICS Changes to AHPRA's code of conduct would gag doctors
The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) has proposed changes to its doctors’ code of conduct that will have a chilling effect of the free exchange of ideas that the development of medicine thrives on, as well as compromising effective clinical practice in some instances.

FOREIGN AFFAIRS Trump delivers for U.S. economy and workers
Following the imposition of tariffs (import duties) on imported steel dumped in the United States, and on imports from the European Union (EU), which restricts U.S. exports, the American economy is now growing at its fastest rate for years, despite threats of reprisals from the EU and China, and relentless negativity from the American media.

CHILDREN AND SOCIETY Treating depressed children: How will history judge us?
An investigative report by the BBC recently found that the number of antidepressants prescribed to children in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland has risen 24 per cent over the past three years.

PRIVACY Big Brother is marketing you
In today’s world, it is nigh impossible to conduct one’s personal or professional life without resorting to electronic means. E-banking is seamlessly integrated into most businesses; phone-banking apps track exactly how you spend your money, categorising spending into “shopping”, “groceries”, “eating out”, “utilities” and so on, ostensibly to help you budget better.

THE FAMILY Humanae Vitae: a prophetic document at 50
This year marks the 50th anniversary of Humanae Vitae, Blessed Pope Paul VI’s encyclical on married love and the appropriate means of family planning. Issued at the height of the sexual revolution in the 1960s – a time where liberalism and irrationality rocked the Western world – the encyclical aimed to state strongly the Catholic Church’s stance on love, family and reproduction.

SOCIETY AND MORES Novel features of child sexual abuse in our time
Whether child sexual abuse has occurred in all human societies and in all eras, we obviously cannot know. But we do know something of its prevalence and nature in English-speaking countries since the late 19th century, when it first became the object of public concern and of benevolent social reform societies.

EUTHANASIA International expert emphasises palliative care
Professor Ilora Finlay, Baroness Finlay of Llandaff, was a keynote speaker at the AMA (WA) End-of-life Choices and Palliative Care Symposium held in Perth. At this symposium, Professor Finlay presented an examination of the issues and risks – both clinical and societal – of legalising assisted suicide in Western Australia.

BIOGRAPHY The trouble with Harry (Freame) is that we've forgotten him
The evidence that Dr John Fahey has amassed points strongly towards Harry Freame, decorated Great War hero, and Japanese translator and interpreter, having been a spy for Australia whose death came at the hands of the Kempeitai, the notorious Japanese military police.

OPINION Just asking ... sauce for the goose ...?
Will there now be a Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Government School Staff Sexual Abuse of Students?

HISTORY Christianity has died. Agreed, and yet ...
The expression, “a post-Christian world”, can at times be annoying, especially when it is used by wicked people to justify their wickedness, or when it is used as a sort of verbal shorthand by the mentally lazy. But it is also used legitimately as an objective description of the state of things today.

MILITARY HISTORY The volunteering spirit proves best in the test
St Patrick’s Day is a day of celebration for the Irish, and no one was more convinced that the Australian Celts needed this day of celebration and solidarity than Archbishop Daniel Mannix (1864–1963). In celebration of Ireland’s patron saint in 1920, in the Saint Patrick’s Day parade, Archbishop Mannix rode in an open limousine surrounded by 14 Victoria Cross (VC) winners, all mounted on pure white horses. Some things need to be noted.

MUSIC Chilly exposure: The sound and the fury
When walking around the centre of Melbourne, one continually comes across buskers. Some of them are so awful I am tempted to offer them money on the condition that they promise to stop playing until I am out of earshot.

CINEMA Mission Impossible: Fallout: Ethan Hunt, knight errant
Keeping up with the tradition of death-defying exhilaration, int­ricate conspiracies with double and triple crosses, and world-ending scenarios, Mission Impossible: Fallout succeeds at being what it is – a sharp thriller with a moral edge and an awareness of consequences; a modern chivalric tale full of sacrifice and derring-do.

BOOK REVIEW A good diagnosis enables the cure
When the early Greek philosophers began to muse upon the nature of the cosmos, they formed various theories as to the constitution of the world around them. Some thought everything could be reduced to fire, others to water.

BOOK REVIEW End of the American empire?
The Caribbean island of Puerto Rico can’t decide whether it wants to be part of the U.S. or not. American Samoa has grown fat, literally, on handouts from Washington. Hawaii, the U.S. forward base in the Pacific, became a U.S. state, though a movement exists to restore the Hawaiian monarchy.

LETTERS
Confession is a community service, not only to restore the relationship of us sinners with God, but also to help civil authorities to preserve law and order.
