COVER STORY Weatherill demand places Murray-Darling in jeopardy
The decision by Prime Minister Julia Gillard in 2012 to take an additional 450 gigalitres “up water” from the Murray Darling catchment and send it down the rivers “for the environment” has been a costly exercise in political posturing that can deliver no benefits.

CANBERRA OBSERVED Greens: wouldn't know a cowardly act if they did one
Freshly minted New South Wales Liberal Senator Jim Molan could not have asked for a more rapid propulsion into the public consciousness courtesy of a Greens attack on him that has misfired spectacularly.

REDEFINITION OF MARRIAGE Government forms say it is fluid gender marriage
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and the Attorney-General’s Department have made it clear that changing the Marriage Act to allow “two people” to marry delivered gender-fluid marriage, not just same-sex marriage.

FREEDOM AND LAW Gender and anti-discrimination: wedges between you and freedom
Many Australian voters who voted “Yes” in the marriage postal ballot did so in the belief that religious freedoms would be protected. An August, 2017, Newspoll conducted exclusively for The Australian newspaper asked “if Parliament should provide legal guarantees for freedom of conscience, belief and religion if same sex-marriage were legislated?” Sixty-two per cent of those polled agreed and only 18 per cent disagreed.

GENDER POLITICS Transgenderism: A state-sponsored religion
Gender dysphoria is a serious mental health issue. By contrast, transgenderism is a belief system that increasingly looks like a cultish religion – a modern-day Gnosticism that denies physical reality in favour of deceived perceptions – being forced on the public by the state.

HISTORY Hungary, 62 years on from the anti-Soviet uprising

MUSIC Reel to real: Johann Johannsson, RIP
The news of the passing of Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson at 48 was as sad as his music. As one commentator opined, it is almost as if he wrote his own requiem.

CINEMA Sweet Country: Sour taste of bush justice
Warwick Thornton describes his new film, Sweet Country, as a western. Based on a true story, it is set in country Australia in the 1920s and takes as its theme a man who kills in defence of himself and his wife, and who then flees, afraid that he will not receive a fair trial. That man is Sam Kelly (Hamilton Morris), a decent and hardworking Aboriginal stockman who works for the kind and genuine Fred Smith (Sam Neill), a staunch, Bible-reading but not Bible-bashing Christian who takes his faith seriously and treats his employees accordingly.

BOOK REVIEW Lessons from the UK front of the GFC
Adair Turner, also a product of the finance industry and, indeed, an adviser to central banks in Eastern Europe and Russia, also did not anticipate the crisis. Like Greenspan, his understanding of economics, including financial economics, made such anticipation impossible.

BOOK REVIEW The dragon has woken and rumbled
Probably the most pertinent question Mosher raises is: will China and the United States face off in a military showdown? The “Thucydides Trap” proposes an almost inevitable test of strength when a rising power confronts the hegemonic power, as when Athens challenged Sparta in the Peloponnesian Wars. The rise of China rests on the CCP’s ability to mobilise its citizens to undertake tasks that enhance the power and strategic reach of China, as in the fortification of the South China Sea.
