MAGNA CARTA AT 800
Magna Carta understood as its drafter intended it to be

King John’s grant of Magna Carta in 1215 is a wonderful example of the central role religion played in the development of the common law. The following article is an edited version of a paper presented by Dr Augusto Zimmermann at the Parliament of Tasmania on the occasion of its commemoration of the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta on June 16, 2015.

CANBERRA OBSERVED Media in a tailspin over Bishop and choppergate
The political story about Bronwyn Bishop’s ill-judged helicopter flight has filled the usual news vacuum of the long Parliamentary winter recess, much to the annoyance of Tony Abbott, who had hoped to use the period to drive home Bill Shorten’s shortcomings as an alternative prime minister.

NATIONAL AFFAIRS Shorten weakened by royal commission appearance
The appearance of Bill Shorten at the Royal Commission into Trade Union Governance and Corruption has done nothing to strengthen the Labor leader’s position in the run-up to the ALP National Conference.

EDITORIAL Another scare to fuel global warming alarmism
If the carbon-dioxide-induced “global warming” theory were true, we would expect that average temperatures would be increasing across the globe as the level of CO2 in the atmosphere increases. It is not happening.

ECONOMICS Bank of England puts orthodox theory to the test
The Bank of England has taken on the characteristics of an economic chame­leon: on the one hand trapped in orthodoxy and, on the other, struggling to break free of its worst constraints. Nevertheless, the bank has pushed important straws out into the swift flowing stream of reality.

HISTORY High tide of Dutch rule in Indonesia recedes
The first day of the 19th century confirmed the bankruptcy of the Dutch East India Company (VOC). The VOC had paid an 18 per cent dividend for almost 200 years. Now, beset by rampant corruption and a loss of confidence, it was nationalised by the Dutch government. The Dutch East Indies, from 1 January 1800, became a Dutch colony.

SOCIETY Justice Kennedy and the lonely Promethean liberal
Justice Anthony Kennedy’s decision in Obergefell v Hodges is anchored in the liberty to “define and express” one’s identity. But this view of man is not as exalted as it seems. According to Kennedy, self-defined man, if he’s unmarried, remains tragically lonely and, without state recognition, might even doubt his own dignity.

PUBLIC HEALTH Are we giving hard drugs too soft a ride?
In Australia, harm reduction guides policy on illicit drug use in the belief that most people who use drugs, including those who inject them, experience little or no harm, that to use drugs recreationally and for pleasure is a legitimate lifestyle choice and that society is obliged to minimise the harm associated with drug use.

CINEMA The outsider who renews the news of relationship: WALL-E
In 2008, Pixar released one of its most stunning and critically acclaimed films, WALL-E, an enthralling and enchanting science-fiction adventure about love and loneliness, one ambitious enough to have voiceless robots as its leads.

BOOK REVIEW Where have all the believers gone?
No one in the first census, in 1828, was listed as atheist. In the 1901 census, 96 per cent of Australians claimed to be Christian, and about half the population attended church regularly. By 2011, however, not only had the number identifying as Christian dropped to just over 60 per cent, but fewer than a 10th of the population (well over half of whom were women) attended church regularly, and 30 per cent had no religion.

BOOK REVIEW What the Nazis did not know did not hurt her
Most of these survived either by remaining hidden in buildings, and/or by adopting false identities. One of these was Marie Jalowicz, whose extraordinary survival story is recounted in this book.
