COVER STORY Deregulation cause of dairy industry crisis
It is a sign of the desperation in the dairy industry that thousands of dairy farmers from around the country have taken to the streets of the capital cities to protest against policies that have driven their industry to the brink of bankruptcy.

CANBERRA OBSERVED Double-dissolution election likely to deliver disillusionment
Part of Malcolm Turnbull’s rationale for calling a double-dissolution election – the first in 29 years – was to clean out the cumbersome Senate of renegade and recalcitrant independents.

EDITORIAL Turnbull keeps his smile as all around lose theirs
Malcolm Turnbull’s decision to hold a double-dissolution election is looking more and more foolish by the day.

LIFE ISSUES Infant viability fails to wake upper house interest
The Infant Viability Bill was debated in the Victorian upper house on Wednesday, May 25, 2016.

GLOBAL ECONOMY A generation left to twiddle its thumbs
Globally over 300 million young people were not in employment, education or training in 2013. A new social contract is needed to generate jobs and hope for a generation of increasingly disenfranchised young people.

LOCAL GOVERNMENT Amateur hour at the Brisbane City Council
In an embarrassing display of rainbow politics, Brisbane’s glorified roadworks board (aka the city council) passed a motion on May 17 supporting a change to Commonwealth marriage law that would include same-gender couples, polygamy (multiple wives), polyandry (multiple husbands) and any combination of adult groupings.

EUTHANASIA Too quick a leap to counsel of despair
The Age newspaper (May 28, 2016), barely a week before the Victorian Parliament’s report into end-of-life choices was expected, foreshadowed that the committee will recommend some form of legislative change. A form of assisted suicide is widely rumoured.

CULTURE WARS Australia Council cuts funding to Quadrant
The decision of the Australia Council – the Australian Government’s autonomous arts funding body – to refuse funding for the literary pages (poetry, short stories, essays and book reviews) of liberal-conservative magazine Quadrant is probably the most disgraceful and indefensible in the history of Australian arts administration.

SEXUAL POLITICS Gay "marriage" and the given in human procreative behaviour (Part 2)
We have seen enough of the results of the 50-year assault on marriage to be sure that certain behavioural patterns, though “expressed in custom and reinforced by ritual”, are hard-wired and are for our good: that is, marriage works, especially for children. Lucy Sullivan writes. Part Two of two parts

FEDERAL ELECTION How to ensure your Senate vote goes all the way
If you did not vote for the Greens (for example) in the last election, and do not wish to vote for the Greens this time, you need to understand how under new voting system for the Senate your vote for, say, the Liberals or the DLP could still end up a vote for the Greens.

PHILOSOPHY John Haldane holds true to faith-reason nexus
Professor John Haldane, one of the world’s foremost thinkers within the Catholic tradition, has just completed a Visiting Professorship at the University of Notre Dame Australia (Sydney).

HISTORY The Chinese in Australia: not the story you've heard
You may have been told that the history of the Chinese in Australia is dominated by racism and the White Australia Policy. Yet at no time were legally resident Chinese expelled from Australia; though a great many old Chinese men went home to China to die in their home villages, which is the Chinese custom.

MUSIC The times it takes to reach eternity
The great jazz trumpeter Miles Davis, when asked by his sidemen what he wanted them to do, would reply: “I don’t know, but I will know when I hear it.”

CINEMA Madcap adventures in the Kiwi bush: Hunt for the Wilderpeople
Hunt for the Wilderpeople is a madcap and heartfelt comic adventure full of colourful characters and beautiful landscapes that manages to entertain while still touching on some heavy issues. From its opening, as the camera soars over the mountains and forests, with a rhythmic a cappella piece, the scene is set for a story both realistic and in some sense mythic.

BOOK REVIEW The curate's egg
Berg’s proposition is that libertarians and conservatives are natural allies. I do not wish to imply that News Weekly readers will be offended by Berg’s book. Indeed, much of The Libertarian Alternative will appeal to a conservative Christian audience. In that sense, like the curate’s egg, it does have much that is good.

The author, Rev Dr Christopher Dowd OP, is the Provincial Historian for the Australian Dominican Province, and Catholic Chaplain at Monash University.
