News Weekly current issue featured articles:

COVER STORY Reality of family unit must underlie tax system
There is an enormous disconnect at the heart of Australian society that is rarely acknowledged by Australia’s established political, bureaucratic, business and community leaders.

EDITORIAL Christianity today: the challenges ahead
The muted commemorations marking the 500th anniversary of the commencement of the Protestant Reformation, officially dated to October 31, provide an occasion to reflect on the role of Christianity today in our society, and more broadly, throughout the world.

CANBERRA OBSERVED Xenophon: a Mr Fixit or a political yo-yo?
While there have been many big name independent senators in Australian politics over the past couple of decades, no one has successfully grabbed the limelight on so many diverse issues as Nick Xenophon.

DRUGS POLICY Science elbowed aside in rush for latest silver bullet: 'medical marijuana'
Although serious questions remain unanswered concerning the efficacy and safety of “medicinal marijuana”, the Federal Government in March granted the first licence to an Australian company to grow and harvest marijuana for medicinal purposes.[1]

TRANSGENDER MARRIAGE Decoys to revolutionary laws redefining sex and marriage
Is the national survey about same-sex marriage or fluid gender marriage?

FOREIGN AFFAIRS What is the way out of the Catalan crisis?
To most people outside Spain, the violent suppression of an independence referendum in the region of Catalonia by the central government seems inexplicable – if not incomprehensible.

NATIONAL AFFAIRS Our barmy Army: all politically correct
A prime minister who cared about this country’s security would take steps to ensure our armed forces were of the highest possible quality. In particular, he would put a stop to the politically correct madness which is seeing fit men being turned away from recruiting offices so the Army can meet a “target” of, it is said, 50 per cent women.

FAMILY AND SOCIETY The child as weapon in Family Court process
Next time you hear a parent denigrate or make claims of abuse against an ex-partner with whom they had children and, at one time, a loving relationship, think again. Be careful not always to accept these kinds of stories at face value.

FAMILY AND SOCIETY Faiths and the global future
This essay is adapted from an address delivered to an international conference on the family in Manila in March 1999. It first appeared in its present form in The Natural Family (Vol. 30, No. 3, 2017), the journal of the International Organisation for the Family, Religion & Society, of which Allan C. Carlson is editor.

KOREA Hermit Kingdom versus the Land of Morning Calm
At the end of the Korean War in 1953, it was not difficult to predict the future of Korea. Korea was divided along the 38th parallel of latitude. The war had achieved virtually nothing. The North and South were divided along the same line as when the war started. There wasn’t even a peace treaty – the war ended with an armistice only. The fragile standoff continues at Panmunjom, on the Demilitarised Zone.

MUSIC Hi-tech lo-fi: Resistance is futile
Glance around the streets, or look at people travelling to work on the train, and you will notice something that has never before existed. Large numbers of people will be listening to music on headphones. Often, they are doing so in a way that will harm their long-term hearing, but that does not stop them from almost continuous listening.

CINEMA Blade Runner 2049: A cypher unlocking a mystery
Blade Runner 2049 is an astoundingly cinematic exercise in dystopian sci-fi noir that allusively explores the commodification of the human person and the nature of identity. Set 30 years after the events of Ridley Scott’s original and massively influential 1982 Blade Runner, Blade Runner 2049 continues to explore the ramifications of a world in which bio-engineered beings indistinguishable from normal humans are part and parcel of everyday life.

BOOK REVIEW The rebels
Buchanan went on to gain a doctorate in economics from the University of Chicago after World War II ended. He won the Nobel Prize in Economics in 1986. His main contribution to economic theory was the role of government in public finance, in particular public choice theory.

BOOK REVIEW An attempt to break through the fog
The authors make every assertion as carefully as if they were walking on eggshells; and given the tenor of the debate on same-sex marriage, in which the “No” camp has been demonised unremittingly as “haters” and “homophobes” by the usual chorus in the mainstream media even as every outrage against them has been an occasion of ridicule or silence or denial – they did well to take such care.

HUMOUR More excerpts from the forthcoming revision of Forget's Dictionary of Inaccurate Facts, Furphys and Falsehoods
Antimacassar: Any member of a now-defunct religious and political organisation in the South Pacific that opposed the wearing of raincoats in tropical climates. Many were imprisoned by the British and the Dutch at different times for standing out in the rain quite uncovered.

LETTERS
The chorus of “foul play” whenever statistics showing fewer women in top jobs and with top salaries than men is well overdue for a reality check. Given that only about 30 per cent of women as against 100 per cent of men spend their whole adult lives in the workforce, and if relevant ability is similarly distributed in both sexes, a third the number of women as there are men in these upper echelons would be a just outcome.

EUTHANASIA Victoria's death bill: questions that need answers
An assisted-suicide/euthanasia bill has been introduced into Victoria’s Legislative Assembly. But the Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill 2017 raises even more questions than it contains “safeguards”.

TRANSGENDER MARRIAGE: George Christensen calls Parliament's attention to activists' end-game
