COVER STORY Anti-discrimination law validates Safe Schools
Roz Ward, the main architect of the Safe Schools program and director of the Safe Schools Coalition Victoria, which is implementing the program in Victorian schools, has said the controversial program is simply teaching students what is enshrined in the law.

CANBERRA OBSERVED Triggs on the way out, but her weapon (18C) must go too
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has indicated that his Government remains intent on pursuing its defence of free speech agenda in the Australian Parliament in the face of a concerted but at times absurd campaign by the left to curb it.

ANALYSIS What is possible to a Trump White House
The election of Donald Trump was a terrible shock to the American and global media, which had written him off months ago.

EDITORIAL Trump portends the start of a new political era
The victory of Donald Trump in the U.S. presidential election was more than a repudiation of the left-liberal social agenda and libertarian economics pursued by President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton since 2008.

EUTHANASIA Late-night reprieve in SA Parliament
The latest in a long line of euthanasia bills was debated in the South Australian Parliament on Wednesday and Thursday, November 16–17.

EAST ASIAN AFFAIRS Taiwan and Japan look extinction in the face
Taiwan and Japan have much in common. Taiwan’s young people often follow trends in Japanese fashion and games. Both nations love baseball; in Japan, you will often see boys training in a baseball diamond etched into a schoolyard. Japanese companies helped kick-start Taiwan’s “economic miracle”.

SEXUAL POLITICS Victorian Liberals pledge to scrap Safe Schools
The Victorian Liberal State Council has unanimously voted to axe the extreme Safe Schools program if they win the next state election in 2018. At a packed State Council in Ballarat, on Saturday November 19, Opposition Leader Matthew Guy announced that the Liberals would get rid of the Safe Schools program in Victorian schools if the Coalition wins the 2018 election.

LAW AND SOCIETY No-fault divorce a tragedy of nuclear proportions
The National Family Law Conference was held in Melbourne on October 19–21, 2016, with more than 1000 family law professionals from across Australia in attendance. The chairwoman of the Law Council of Australia’s Family Law Section, Wendy Kayler-Thomson, said this year’s conference marked the 40th anniversary of the introduction of the Family Law Act – a milestone in Australia’s legal history.

PARENTING Experts envisage lustrous future for infant graduates
The earlier we relinquish our children’s education to the “experts”, the better off they will be. This seems to be the latest catch-cry of a study from the Mitchell Institute at Victoria University.

POLITICAL HISTORY Folly with a touch of good sense: Colonel Sibthorp
Our trillion-dollar-spending, multiculture-obsessed political leaders might do worse than be reminded of the colourful British Victorian politician, Colonel Charles de Laet Waldo Sibthorp, Member for Lincoln from 1826 to 1855.

ECONOMICS Trump as a symptom of the end of neoliberalism
A few weeks ago I came across an article copied from the British journal, New Statesman. Once upon a time New Statesman was a literate magazine, strongly left wing, in the days when Paul Johnson – a prominent British public intellectual of the time – was still firmly attached to the left.

MUSIC Vale Leonard: did we ever really understand you?
The passing of Leonard Cohen and the awarding of the Nobel Prize to Bob Dylan have brought to prominence an intriguing phenomenon in popular music.

CINEMA Fantastical and beastly: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
J.K. Rowling established a vast alternate imagined reality with her Harry Potter stories. The focus of those books, and their movie adaptations, was Harry Potter and his ongoing battles with the fearsome Dark Lord Voldemort.

BOOK REVIEW A Life well spent
The sectarianism that bedeviled Australian society hardly exists any more. State aid for Catholic schools has done little except deliver the Catholic education system into the hands of an educational bureaucracy, with the consequence that it has little to differentiate it from the secular education system. As far as the great struggle for “state aid” is concerned, it is a battle that has been won and does not need to be fought over again.

BOOK REVIEW Catholic revisals
The topics are mostly familiar – the Crusades, the Spanish Inquisition, the Galileo affair, the attack on Pope Pius XII as a Nazi sympathiser, and others – and it is refreshing that Stark not only exonerates the Church where he can (where he can’t he certainly does not tread lightly) but finds often enough that the contrary view is where the truth can be found.

FOREIGN AFFAIRS How the left whitewashed Fidel Castro
The death of the 90-year-old former leader of Cuba, Fidel Castro, was widely reported as the death of a dictator – but one who was loved by his people, and vastly improved the lot of ordinary Cubans.
