COVER STORY A myriad transformations effected by one birth
It is easy to be overwhelmed by the sense that the problems faced by our society, our country and even our world are so overwhelming that there is no solution.

CANBERRA OBSERVED Labor must own up to why it took the thrashing it got
When the Australian Labor Party was trounced for a second time at the 1977 election following the humiliation and shock of the post-Dismissal election of 1975, the party went away for one of the most important resets in its history.

INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS Brexit: Quintessentially British party politics
The UK votes on December 12. The issue is Brexit: “to leave or not to leave … that is the question”; with sincere apologies to Shakespeare. The slumbering elephant in the room is immigration, but that is unmentionable, especially on the politically correct BBC.

OBITUARY Fr Paul Stenhouse: The thoughtful editor for the 'ordinary' reader
Fr Paul Stenhouse MSC was the doyen of Australian magazine editors who took religious faith and cultural tradition seriously. His reputation stemmed in part from the extraordinary length of his editorship of the Catholic monthly, Annals Australasia, a period of 51 years, but more crucially from the richness of his scholarly knowledge and the unerring quality of his literary and editorial contributions.

ASIAN AFFAIRS Taiwan and Hong Kong: Pawns in a bigger game
Chinese President Xi Jinping is unlikely to unleash the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) on dissenters in Hong Kong, sources in Taiwan say, because Xi wishes to retain the “One country, two systems” policy.

U.S.-CHINA RELATIONS How and why the U.S. should stop financing China's bad actors
Roger W. Robinson Jr is president and chief executive of RWR Advisory Group and co-founder and chairman of the Prague Security Studies Institute.

HUMOUR You can't stop the music, Paddy
Your Theobogan is not renowned for his musical ability. Triangle, air-lute, comb-a-phone are the only ins­truments I play with any mastery. My only album, Hot August MacStuttles, went double splat-and burn, man.

MUSIC 2020 foresight: A musical odyssey
Predictions are, of course, difficult: especially when they involve the future, as Mark Twain quipped. Twain also quipped that “a gentlemen is a man who knows how to play the banjo and doesn’t”. He was quite the quipper.

CLASSIC CINEMA North by Northwest: The immaculately produced nightmare
There is something ominous, and yet comic, about an impeccably dressed man standing on the side of a dusty road in the middle of nowhere. More so if the man in question is Cary Grant and the man responsible is Alfred Hitchcock.

BOOK REVIEW Truncated truths for post-truth times
“It benefitted from no drafts of grant applications, invitation to speak or dry-run articles.”

BOOK REVIEW Food for a summer immersion program
From revolutionary France we travel to the dusty roads of postwar 1950s America, laid out in Jack Kerouac’s On the Road. The editor of First Things himself, R.R. Reno, explores Kerouac’s classic American novel chronicling the Beat Generation’s quest for happiness beyond the trappings of social respectability, with a certain beatific quality to their constant living in the present moment. The ultimate futility of their striving for alternative fulfilment serves only to highlight man’s need for something even more radical than what beatnik culture or the bohemian lifestyle can offer.

LETTERS
I read Colin Teese’s claim, “Today, all over Australia, there are races every day in every state”, on a day when there was one meeting in Victoria and one in New South Wales, with the same scheduled for the next day (News Weekly, November 16, 2019). No races either day in Western Australia, South Australia, Queensland or Tasmania. Hardly a rare occurrence. Hyperbole, maybe? But why?
