EDITORIAL China's pivotal role in Trump-Kim summit
While media coverage of the Singapore summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong-un has focused on the idiosyncrasies of President Trump and the apparent lack of detail in the published agreement, there has been an almost complete blackout on the pivotal role of China in bringing about this meeting and how this meeting fits into the context of China’s growing role in the world.

CANBERRA OBSERVED Throwing our 8¢ in the ring over sale of ABC
The great irony about the Liberal Party’s provocative proposal to sell the ABC is that no one would be remotely interested in buying it.

OPINION Why populism has become popular among the populace

ENERGY Solar panels leave hidden carbon footprint
While the renewable-energy spruikers and the climate alarmists trumpet the “necessity” of solar and wind to curb “dangerous” carbon-dioxide emissions, some studies claim that the carbon dioxide produced in the manufacure of  each square metre of solar panel exceeds that from burning coal.

LITERATURE AND CULTURE Christian humour through the ages: Dante, Chaucer and Cervantes
In one of those statements of Chesterton’s that sound so over the top we can only assume it to be true, the great generalist claims that “the history of humour is simply the history of literature”, which is another way of saying (contrary to Tolstoy, who said “the happy man has no history”) that the history of humour is simply the history of Western man, since all of Chesterton’s examples are from European authors.

ECONOMICS Trump, China, the WTO and world trade

MUSIC Contrary emotions: Following and leading the beat

BOOK REVIEW Commitment at risk of obliteration
The central message of the book is that sex has become cheap, both economically and socially. It is now more available and at a lower cost than ever before in human history. In previous generations, when intercourse carried a higher risk of conception, men had to prove themselves marriageable and demonstrate a capacity to support a wife and provide for a family in order to access sex.
