COVER STORY The deeper causes of Australia's social malaise
The recent controversy over Australian cricketers’ ball tampering in South Africa, the increasing incidence of road rage, “one-punch” attacks, home invasions, online bullying and public vandalism reflect a deepening malaise in Australian culture.

CANBERRA OBSERVED Malcolm at 30 (polls): the cloud on Turnbull's horizon
It is a sorry scenario that Australia’s political agenda and conversation is dominated by a fortnightly survey of 1,500 voters, whose views dictate political reporting to a degree that is totally out of proportion to their number or relevance.

NATIONAL AFFAIRS Cardinal Pell firmly denies sex abuse allegations
As the four-week committal hearing in the Melbourne Magistrates Court concluded, Cardinal George Pell’s barrister, Robert Richter QC, stated that there was no evidence to support charges of historical sexual abuse against his client, after the examination of accusers and witnesses ended.

NATIONAL AFFAIRS Sydney Archdiocese aims to eliminate slavery in supply chain
In an effort to curb modern slavery and human trafficking, the Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney set up an Anti-Slavery Taskforce at the behest of the Archbishop of Sydney, Anthony Fisher OP.

RURAL DEVELOPMENT Irrigation along Fitzroy River proposed and opposed
The controversial question of irrigation along the Fitzroy River has arisen in recent months.

LIFE ISSUES Abortion Rethink Summit: the case for care
Recently, over several days in March (17–22), I had the pleasure of attending the Abortion Rethink Summit in Queensland. It promised to be a different but good conference. I was invited to speak first at the conference and later at Brisbane’s Parliament House to politicians on Tuesday March 22.

VERBATIM WA food, drink producers face shortage of carbon dioxide
The above recent headline in The West Australian newspaper caught the eye of a News Weekly operative in that state. Sad to tell, they story beneath did not bear out the promise of the headline. It was not an opportunity for the state government there to claim Brownie points for mitigating the effects of anthropogenic climatic disruption. No, it was much worse news: flat beer all ‘round, from the Kimberley to Bunbury.

HOUSING AFFORDABILITY Land costs: economist Henry George's solution
In his article, “Family home in cities further out of reach” (News Weekly, March 10, 2018) Chris McCormack deals with a vitally important issue: the increasingly unaffordable prices in Australia’s housing market.

ELECTRICITY Will Turnbull lose three out of three?
After sitting on his hands while Alinta Energy closed South Australia’s Northern Power Station in 2016 and Engie closed the Hazelwood Power Station in Victoria in 2017, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull faces a third test of his leadership over plans by energy monopoly AGL to close the Liddell Power Station (pictured) in New South Wales.

ECONOMICS Trade wars: tariffs unlikely to be fired in anger
One can’t pick up a paper these days without some notable economist or think tank warning of the imminent possibility of a trade war.

SEX AND TEENS How about support for the abstaining majority?
A friend recently alerted me to a disturbing Teen Vogue article that is best described as an explicit “how-to guide” on anal sex for adolescents.

VISUAL ARTS Layers of meaning in Botticelli's La Primavera and The Birth of Venus
Sandro Botticelli’s works contain many layers of meaning and l will use as examples two of his outstanding works, La Primavera and The Birth of Venus to demonstrate this.

MUSIC Is it good?: Or, do we just like the sound it makes?
Listener response is so intriguingly various it fatally undermines the claim that music can be objectively “good”. It is not just that different listeners react in very different ways to the same music.

CINEMA The Death of Stalin: Black comedy of a dark time
The Death of Stalin is a pitch-black, foul-mouthed satirical take on the death of the Soviet strongman and its aftermath.

BOOK REVIEW Cool head on topic that generates heat
The second and third chapters establish the crux of Brady’s discourse. Anthropogenic global warming is a cause and effect relationship: popular science says add carbon dioxide to the atmosphere and Earth heats up. Yet weather and climate are chaotic. There are similarities from year to year, but over longer time periods cycles are discerned. Over the last million years there have been recurring extremes of glacial conditions and intervening warming about every 100,000 years. We are fortunate to be living in a warmer interglacial interval when continental ice sheets have retreated, and wetter conditions are more favourable to agriculture.

BOOK REVIEW Life's not so bad: from the outside
Now, most people exist by small-scale trading, unless they are lucky enough to have bribed their way into a government job. North Korea does have its share of wealthy people who have cars, rich diets and who can travel abroad, but they are the tiniest of minorities.

LETTERS
The article, “Europe’s freezing further proof of global warming”, on page 6 of the March 24, 2018, issue of News Weekly, is not well informed.

OPINION What a republic would really mean for Australia
The hoo-ha about a republic that periodically raises its head may only be a smokescreen for the real agenda and objective of the social engineers pushing it – the abolition of the states and the Senate or their reduction to impotence.
