  • Volume 29 Issue 20 - Hypocrisy and hysteria over Chinese influence
    • Abstract: Robertson, Tim
      In 2012, Mo Yan was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature and was widely criticised by western writers who accused him of accepting and working within the bounds of China's state censorship program. He had a duty, they argued, to speak out against the country's authoritarianism. Pankaj Mishra was one of the few writers who defended Mo; it wasn't, he wrote, that he agreed with the laureate's politics or the decisions he'd made, but that he was being held to a different standard than western novelists.

  • Volume 29 Issue 20 - Sympathy for the poor or bunyip aristocracy
    • Abstract: Sleiman, Daniel
      Australia is a rich country. In fact, Australia is the wealthiest country in the world according to median wealth per adult. Yet Australia still suffers from major poverty and inequality which affects quality of life and the ability of millions of Australians to feed themselves and their families.

  • Volume 29 Issue 20 - Borders blur at Australia's Northern tip
    • Abstract: Marshall, Catherine
      It's a short, brisk climb from the car park at the top of Cape York Peninsula to the most northerly point on the Australian mainland. But the journey to this fabled landmark is drawn-out and laborious: thousands of kilometres by car along largely unpaved road to the Jardine River; transfer by ferry to the other side; and another stretch by car along bitumen and then dirt before Australia's continental landmass finally runs out.

  • Volume 29 Issue 20 - Paul Kelly and the lighthouse in the sky
    • Abstract: Perrin, Julie
      At a gathering recently I heard a rendition of Paul Kelly's song 'Meet Me in the Middle of the Air'. It brought back the moment, more than ten years ago, when I first heard Kelly sing it in a pub in Torquay, on the coast southwest of Melbourne.

  • Volume 29 Issue 20 - Small impactful climate action for the rest of us
    • Abstract: Richardson, Katherine
      It is no secret that our Earth seems to be on the brink of devastation, and that we need as many hands on deck as possible to help bring her back. Something I have noticed recently, as this issue is being talked about more and more, is that there is a pressure to do everything perfectly. We must all be 100 per cent vegan and 100 per cent plastic free and anyone caught doing anything less than this is automatically vilified.

  • Volume 29 Issue 20 - Inmate internet access more than a prison perk
    • Abstract: Heath, Nicola
      For a nation with such a significant convict history, Australians take a peculiarly puritanical approach to prisoners' welfare. Punishment, not rehabilitation, is often viewed as the point of the justice system. We take a very dim view of anything that could be construed as a prisoner perk.

  • Volume 29 Issue 20 - The fake news of the dude and his muse
    • Abstract: Mahoney, Neve
      When asked by a Billboard interviewer about how Jameela Jamil, star of the US TV show The Good Place, 'inspired' his new album Assume Form, musician James Blake immediately corrected the question. 'She helped make it,' he said. He added that Jamil 'has an incredible musical instinct ... she has a credit on the album, it's not just a shout out, it's genuine work.'

    • Abstract: Gittins, Barry
      I have known times in life when three-minute noodles were the only option I could afford to eat for weeks. When I strung along payment plans for bills to ensure the rent got paid. When I couldn't buy petrol for a car, let alone have it repaired, or replace bald tyres.

      The Kurds share with the Jews a certain common ground. They have been, at stages of their history, promised and betrayed. Homelands have been sketched out on maps redrawn by great powers. But while the Jews did eventually find Israel, the Kurds continue to fight for an autonomous bit of earth they can call home.

  • Volume 29 Issue 20 - Child safety reforms still progressing slowly
    • Abstract: Warhurst, John
      Trigger warning: sexual abuse, sexual assault, child abuse.

      Twelve months has passed since the national apology to survivors and victims of institutional child abuse. Such national and other official apologies for a variety of social calamities are now so common that it makes this anniversary easier to overlook because it is just one among many milestones. It also contained an important symbolic element. Nevertheless, the significance of what Senator Mathias Cormann described as a 'collective systemic national failure' demands that it not to be forgotten.

      On 1 February 1960, Ezell Blair Jr, Franklin McCain, Joseph McNeil, and David Richmond sat down at the lunch counter at Woolworth's in Greensboro, North Carolina, and asked for coffee and doughnuts. They were, of course, refused. For the men were black, and the lunch counter, like most facilities in the segregated south, served whites only.

    • Abstract: Galloway, Kate
      For some time, media in the liberal west have been looking on aghast at the apparent dystopian reality of surveillance happening in China through its 'social credit score'. Reports describe a government-run system that processes individuals' data - the data that we all produce through our online lives, and through ubiquitous CCTV.

  • Volume 29 Issue 20 - Cultural questions for getting back on mission
    • Abstract: Hamilton, Andrew
      The core of Getting Back on Mission is a submission made to the Australian Plenary Council which will meet in 2020 and 2021. It was composed by Catholics for Renewal, a group of lay Catholics who have for many years pressed the need for reform within the Catholic Church. It is a valuable resource, comprehensive in its discussion of challenges affecting the Catholic Church and detailed in its proposals for meeting them. It also includes statistical information about the current situation of the Australian Church and the scope of plenary councils.

      It is fair to say that of English saints the newly canonised John Henry Newman is the most intellectual and active in public life since Thomas More. The number of Catholic educational institutions and professional guilds to be named after each man bears witness to that.

      Narungga Elder, Tauto Sansbury, NAIDOC lifetime achievement winner, died 23 September after a lifetime of campaigning. Among other matters his key concern was to make the criminal justice system just for Aboriginal people. In the early days of the SA Aboriginal Legal Rights Movement Tauto designed its logo, with the motto: 'Justice Without Prejudice'.

  • Volume 29 Issue 20 - Moral dangers of the PM's pentecostalism
    • Abstract: Boyce, James
      When I was a child and was asked 'How are you'', only once did I reply, 'I am good'. I still remember the rebuke from my Aunty Ivy, who explained that it is not for me to judge if I am 'good'; better to opt to be 'well'. She would be cross were a prime minister to go around asking 'how good' we are, for to affirm this was regarded by her generation as quite improper.

  • Volume 29 Issue 20 - Rewriting the fairy tales of disability
    • Abstract: Glyn, Justin
      This book is as unusual as it is timely. It is at once both autobiography and social history. In it, Amanda Leduc considers the way in which fairy stories (and their modern kin: Disney films, superhero and fantasy movies) imagine disability - and how that imagination, in turn, shapes societal perceptions of disabled bodies and minds. She does this by expertly braiding the history of the genre and the various tropes it has spawned with the story of how these have shaped her own life as a disabled woman.

    • Abstract: Sutton, Jill
      These days I feel a persistent urge to speak out about the issue of ageing. This is hardly surprising in the midst of the work of Australia's Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety, in the midst of my own worsening memory for the names of things and my partner's lessening ability to remember what happened yesterday, and after the terminal dementia of both my beloved father and former husband.

  • Volume 29 Issue 21 - Chile protests echo Allende's prophecy
    • Abstract: Wadi, Ramona
      On 11 September 1973, Chile's socialist program led by President Salvador Allende was overthrown by a US-backed military coup. From the subsequent dictatorship led by Augusto Pinochet, to the democratic transition and up until now, all Chilean governments have committed themselves to preserving a neoliberal model, which has led to a seemingly insurmountable gap between the Chilean elite and the people.

  • Volume 29 Issue 21 - Mindful eating in a foodie culture
    • Abstract: O'Brien, James
      The rise of the vegan movement challenges us to reflect ethically on food, and to attend more carefully to how it arrives at our table. Within the broader culture, cafes, pubs and restaurants populate Australia, with many food choices available. These are gathering points for young and old, as baristas, chefs, bar attendants and waitstaff offer hospitality to people throughout the day. We expect a feast of food, coffee and alcohol at celebrations but also at more routine events. Our current approach to food and drink is off-balance and unsustainable.

      The attack on Julian Assange has reached a sinister new phase, with a judge in a British court greenlighting American efforts to extradite the WikiLeaks founder. Assange has been detained since May, ostensibly for breaching his bail conditions. He's been held in the maximum security Belmarsh Prison under circumstances that the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture Nils Melzer recently described as constituting torture, an assessment reinforced by Assange's reported frailty in the courtroom.

Between registration and insurance, it was approximately $2000 per year that was better spent elsewhere.

Korea: Where the American Century Began by Michael Pembroke presents an appalling case study of this undesired outcome. Pembroke is a judge of the NSW Supreme Court. His book is well researched and calmly argued.

  • Volume 29 Issue 19 - History repeating in lacklustre NDIS regime
    • Abstract: Gibbs, El
      The latest underspend of the NDIS budget has reached the eye-popping amount of $4.6 billion. Four point bloody six billion dollars not getting to disabled people around the country. This was an increase from last year, when the total amount not spent on disabled people hit $2.5 billion. This is getting worse, not better.

  • Volume 29 Issue 19 - Existential lessons from road kill
    • Abstract: Clark, Cristy
      It was just after six in the morning when it happened. The sun had barely risen above the surrounding hills, which were white from a rare overnight snowfall, and I was out walking with my dogs. We paused as a mob of kangaroos bounded through the trees. When I thought they'd all passed, we continued on our way.

  • Volume 29 Issue 19 - My brush with robodebt
    • Abstract: Alexander, Bree
      I was heartened by the announcement that Gordon Legal is pursuing a class action for robodebt victims that will seek to require Centrelink to establish a lawful basis for any debt due to it. I am one of hundreds of thousands of people who has gone through the robodebt process.

  • Volume 29 Issue 19 - My September of grief
    • Abstract: Richardson, Katherine
      Before that first September, my experience with grief was fairly limited. I had lost an uncle when I was very little, and I was sad, but it was mostly because I didn't like seeing my mother cry. I had loved and lost a plethora of small fluffy animals, each one breaking my heart when it left this world, but my parents were able to sew it back together when they placed the next soft bundle in my arms. So while I was no stranger to death, I hadn't yet felt the type of grief that makes you ache in places you never realised sadness could reach. My first experience with this was September 2014.

  • Volume 29 Issue 19 - Pope answers policies that suffocate hope
    • Abstract: Hamilton, Andrew
      To an outsider it is interesting, and to advertisers and media proprietors a matter of life and death, to note which of the millions of words that are spoken each day attract notice, and to reflect on why they are noticed.

  • Volume 29 Issue 19 - Literature's power is in self not identity
    • Abstract: Tredinnick, Mark
      Two plane trees near the front gate of the Lu Xun Academy in Beijing are coming into leaf. When I ask what she would call these trees, one young woman studying here tells me 'white poplars'. A family of azure-winged magpies is at play in them this morning, their wings first cousin of the early spring sky. I know them as plane trees - Eastern Plane trees (Platanus Orientalis), a quick Baidu search tells me. Endemic to northeastern China. But I have known them all my life.

  • Volume 29 Issue 19 - While Thunberg creates hope, Trump stymies it
    • Abstract: McDermott, Jim
      Over the summer the Guardian published a conversation between US Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg. They talked about a lot of things, but the part that really leapt out was an exchange about hope. 'What keeps you going'' Ocasio-Cortez asks Thunberg. 'Given how daunting the issue is, why aren't you so filled with despair that you're staying on your couch every day, and just waiting for the apocalypse''
