COVER STORY The world has changed: Now for the new order
By the time this editorial goes to print, Australia may be under lockdown, with the Government running a command economy as it has in other crises, like World War II. Covid19 spells the end of globalisation as we have known it.

CANBERRA OBSERVED ScoMo's delicate balancing act in extraordinary times
It is hard to comprehend that a few short months ago, the biggest political conversation in Australia was the media storm about the Prime Minister choosing a family holiday in Hawaii during the bushfires, while the biggest political scandal of early 2020 was a fracas over alleged misspending on sports community facilities in marginal seats at the last election.

NATIONAL AFFAIRS Time and timing are crucial to Cardinal Pell's appeal by Peter Westmore
Cardinal George Pell’s appeal to the High Court took place on March 11 and 12. The case was heard by a Full Bench of the High Court, which includes all seven justices currently on the court.

NEW ZEALAND Political divisions polarise across the Ditch
The old saying, “a fish rots from the head down”, suggests leadership and hierarchies are often the root cause of much going wrong. It conjures up the observation from Hamlet that “There is something rotten in the state of Denmark”. And there would be few New Zealanders who don’t think that there is something very wrong in relation to so much happening to this country, dominated by our hierarchies.

NEW ZEALAND Victorian Road Map smooths way of NZ anti-life clique to abortion 'reform'
New Zealand’s Parliament by 68 votes to 51, on the night of March 18, passed a replica of Victoria’s 2008 Abortion Law Reform Act.

FREE SPEECH Intolerance brigade at UQ attacks professor of Law
The T.C. Beirne School of Law at the University of Queensland was established by a £20,000 donation from Thomas Charles Beirne, a devout Catholic businessman and Papal Knight who was warden of the University from 1928 to 1941. The vast tract of beautiful riverside land on which the university sits in St Lucia was donated by pioneering doctor and Catholic philanthropist James O’Neil Mayne.

NATIONAL AFFAIRS Victoria lifts moratorium of gas exploration
The Labor Government in Victoria has announced that it will end a six-year moratorium on onshore gas exploration, in response to rising domestic gas prices.

CHINESE HISTORY The Soong Dynasty: Three sisters who rules China
There is an old saying about the Soong Dynasty, as the three Soong sisters are called: “One loved money, one loved power and one loved China.”

LAW AND SOCIETY Guilt by accusation: The kangaroos are roaming freely through Australia's legal system
While tutoring journalism students in Beijing, a leading Australian editor counselled them not to describe an accused person as “guilty”. A student asked: “But if he was arrested, wouldn’t he be guilty?”

GENDER POLITICS Dr Quentin Van Meter's Australian talk is opening eyes in the U.S.
Saint Raphael’s Guild of the Catholic Medical Association is a collection of varied health-care professionals based in Duluth, Minnesota, in the United States, and we recently met to discuss the transgender movement.

INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS Australia is not safe in the borderless globalised world
An early postwar British Prime Minister, Harold McMillan, was perhaps the canniest of his age. An enthusiastic journalist once asked him what were the greatest problems facing a prime minister.

SHOPPING AND SOCIETY The Ubermensch in the aisles
As tempting as it might be, it would be vulgar and crass to suggest a direct, instrumental relationship between Nietzsche’s philosophy and toilet paper, so I will proceed in another direction and with a different sort of association.

MUSIC We seem to have lost the point of counterpoint
The greatest achievement of Western music, and something that distinguishes it from all other traditions of music, is counterpoint: the simultaneous use of multiple melodies. It was made possible by a 17th-century invention called the well-tempered scale, whereby pianos or harpsichords were tuned in such a way that it became possible to play music in all the major and minor keys without it sounding out of tune. This was done by tempering, or averaging out, the tuning of all 12 notes so that they were not perceptibly “out of tune”.

CINEMA The Current War: Industrial miracle workers
Less a typical historical biopic and more an impressionistic cinematic essay, The Current War is a stunning introduction to an industrial duel that set the stage for the modern, technological era. It concerns the seemingly hair-splitting debate over what sort of current should be used to produce and transmit electricity but, like all such debates, it is one with far-reaching ramifications for industry and urban design.

BOOK REVIEW A dark trade that continues unabated worldwide
Slavery Inc. shines a light on a dark and expanding global trade. The book explores the complex web of one of the most serious problems of the 21st century – slavery in various forms but, in particular, sex slavery. This trade, Cacho explains, has grown unfettered across the world leaving in its wake many victims, mainly women and children.

LETTERS
The Wall Street Journal has published a most disturbing article, which describes the condition of the Catholic Church in China. The article refers to a recent agreement between the Catholic Church and the Communist Chinese Government.

AS THE WORLD TURNS
NASA and European Space Agency (ESA) pollution monitoring satellites have detected significant decreases in nitrogen dioxide (NO2) over China. There is evidence that the change is at least partly related to the economic slowdown following the outbreak of coronavirus.

NATIONAL AFFAIRS Use detention centres to help deal with covid19 epidemic
Having put in place a range of emergency measures to deal with the covid19 epidemic, the measured response of the Commonwealth and state governments – meeting as a national cabinet – is beginning to show results, as the increase in the number of confirmed cases has slowed down.
