COVER STORY Green energy policies freeze out the poor
The increase in renewable energy (solar and wind) has pushed up electricity prices and, inevitably, increased the number of disconnections of poor families who cannot afford the rising price of electricity.

CANBERRA OBSERVED If independents rule in House, stability is a goner
Should the May 18 election end up being a close result, the outcome of a gaggle of independents and minor party members controlling the House of Representatives looms as an unwelcome prospect.

SOCIETY 'Ladies Wanted' flyers lure women into porn
Anyone who visits Melbourne will observe the normalisation of the sex trade. This has happened because prostitution was made legal in Victoria in 1994.

ECONOMICS Trading in the toxic legacy of neoliberalism
This piece is being written in the midst of an election campaign. Yet, it is not intended as comment on the merits or otherwise of the election debate.

TECHNOLOGY The wheels come off Tesla's electric dream
After years of over-promising and under-delivering, America’s latest technology darling, Tesla, now has a highly uncertain future.

HISTORY OF SCIENCE Faith and reason and Father Stanley Jaki Part 1
This year, 2019, marks two important anniversaries of interest to readers of News Weekly. The first is the 50th anniversary of the landing on the moon of Apollo 11. I have few recollections about it because at the time I was only six years old. But putting men on the moon was a triumph of science in general and physics in particular.

STATE POLITICS Notes from the hustings
In 1965, legendary American conservative publisher, author and television personality William F. Buckley Jr surprised the world by running for the mayoralty of New York City.

A TRIBUTE TO LES MURRAY A man of the Word: the poet and the Logos
Les Murray was a consummate wordsmith. In the judgement of his wife Valerie, also an accomplished writer, he was “one of the best masters of words anywhere”.

MUSIC Workhorse themes: Sonic sub-rhythms
It is not easy to defend the statement – which I think is nevertheless true – that film is an unusually manipulative art form. “Don’t all art forms manipulate people’s responses; isn’t that the very nature of artistic effect?” might be one objection. To which the answer would have to be: “Well, yes, I suppose.”

CINEMA Avengers: Endgame: Marvellous final chapter
After eleven years, 22 films, and 11 television series, the first grand arc of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has reached its stunning conclusion with the thrilling and emotionally satisfying rollercoaster of Avengers: Endgame.

BOOK REVIEW The left has our schools in bondage
Early in the work, Donnelly relates a story from 2004, when the Howard government was returned for another term at the federal election. The editor of a national English teacher’s journal lamented this occurrence, arguing that English teachers had failed to teach their charges how to think. Doesn’t this sum up the problem with education rather neatly? An English teacher views his work in the classroom as political, and believes that he and other teachers have the duty and right to dictate to students what correct thinking is and how to apply it at the ballot box.

BOOK REVIEW Philosopher hits all the right notes
Scruton addresses the idea of music and the moral life, looking, for example, to philosopher David Hume’s ideas of sympathy as a parallel to musical appreciation – a way of getting beyond mere selfishness. It is an intriguing idea of virtue, which Scruton traces in relation to movement and dance, but it does not go anywhere much, as it should not. There have been very bad men with a fine appreciation of music.

OBITUARY Bob Hawke: astute politician; flawed policies
The extraordinary tributes paid to Bob Hawke, the longest-serving Labor Prime Minister of Australia, who died on May 16, reflect the fact that Bob Hawke was a man with the common touch, who won four elections until being deposed in a coup by his successor as Labor Prime Minister, Paul Keating.

EDITORIAL How Scott Morrison routed Labor, the Greens, GetUp and the left media
The triumph of Liberal Prime Minister Scott Morrison, who single-handedly led the Liberal Party to victory on May 18, will go down as the greatest win since Labor’s Paul Keating defeated John Hewson 25 years ago.
