CANBERRA OBSERVED Climate change: deadly ... to political leaders
It is extraordinary to think that Malcolm Turnbull lost the leadership of the Liberal Party not once but twice over climate change policy, first as opposition leader and then as Prime Minister.

BANKING ROYAL COMMISSION A step too small?
Many had been hoping for substantial changes to the financial system after the extensive misconduct so publicly revealed in the last year. Instead, in the Final Report of the Financial Services Royal Commission, we have a string of modest recommendations, largely dealing with technicalities or chosen specifics.

CYBER SECURITY Chinese smartphone threat extends way beyond Huawei
Australian Government con­cerns over Huawei, a Chinese technology company with close ties to the Chinese Government, have led to the company’s exclusion from building Australia’s 5G network, but there is a more urgent Chinese threat to existing mobile phone users.

SOCIETY Such grandeur of spirit
In 1947, a lifeboat named after Edward, Prince of Wales, put out from the village of Mumbles, in Wales, in a terrific storm, to aid the stricken ship Santampa.

POLITICS John Hewson should have as sturdy a Constitution
The end of the year is often cause for commentators to criticise the way government is functioning. This year John Hewson, a former leader of the Liberal Party, joined the chorus.

FINANCE Hayne royal commission sets agenda for bank reform
The final report into the banking system by Royal Commissioner Kenneth Hayne, a former High Court judge, has documented systematic abuses of power by the “Big Four” banks, as well as finance brokers and some non-bank financial institutions.

FAMILY RELATIONS Dad: a girl's first and most influential love
Last September, on a Sunday afternoon, my wife and I were walking through “Speakers Corner” in Hyde Park, London. I was amazed by the number of men who were there passionately trying to convince the masses of people why their ideas were good and true.

COMMENTARY Words gone feral: rights and equality
It is time we put the word “rights” to bed, at least in its present conceptualisation. It has ceased to have any serious moral, social or political meaning. As now used, it is merely to assert an individual’s or minority group’s demand to be privileged in some marginal proclivity above the rest of society.

SOCIETY AND CULTURE A dog's life: reflections of a grey nomad
Like many of the caravan parks we have visited recently, this one has a large sign out front saying “Dogs Welcome”. And I am currently sitting beside my camper trailer watching the caravan folk walk past with their dogs.

MUSIC Serialism a killer: Ideas tend to get in the way
To visit the Tate Modern gallery in London is to be assaulted with a myriad of different ideas and theories about art, ranging from the garish pop art of Roy Lichtenstein, to the surrealism of Salvador Dali, to installations from Brazil commenting on culture and consumerism, to performance art from Central America that is savage political comment, to street art, to neon-light shows, to a painting that is pure white, to Mark Rothko’s abysms of colour, to a sculpted city made out of couscous.

CINEMA Cold Pursuit: Revenge served up manic
The reigns of Queen Elizabeth I and James I saw the rise of a type of play later critics have dubbed the “revenge tragedy” or “blood drama”. These, unsurprisingly bloodthirsty, dramas had a simple hook: a wronged man seeks revenge by killing those who wronged him and usually dies in the process.

BOOK REVIEW Why the West and nowhere else
The book takes up one of Jaki’s central themes: that the discovery and resulting revolution of science in general, and physics in particular, came about chiefly because its philosophical foundations are rooted in Judeo-Christian thought, and some very specific Christian propositions, which are held as given. In other words, they are believed on faith.

BOOK REVIEW The escalation of horror and atrocity
Although German authorities were aware that the use of poison gas was contrary to the Hague Convention – with some senior military figures initially opposing its use – they had been experimenting with it since late 1914. Research led by Fritz Haber determined which gas to use.
