  • Volume 24 Issue 11 - Anatomy of a 'deconversion'
    • Abstract: Kirkwood, Peter A major challenge facing contemporary Christian institutions, at least in Western countries, is dwindling membership. It's not so much that people no longer have spiritual or religious beliefs, but increasingly these are pursued and expressed outside the confines of traditional religion.

  • Volume 24 Issue 11 - No, Mr Hockey, the budget is not fair
    • Abstract: Hamilton, Andrew Many Australians, myself included, believed that the Federal Budget was unfair. So Treasurer Joe Hockey's recent speech in defence of its fairness offers a welcome challenge. His argument deserves reflection.

  • Volume 24 Issue 9 - Kidnapped Nigerian girls put the lie to Western
           freedom
    • Abstract: Marshall, Catherine Lulu Mitshabu tells us to close our eyes. 'Imagine your brothers, sisters, your mothers, your nieces, your nephews, your children, everybody that makes you smile, the good time you're having,' she says.

  • Volume 24 Issue 9 - Budget more slow-burn than big bang
    • Abstract: Brady, Jackie For poor and disadvantaged people the impact of this Budget will burn like a slow fuse. There is no big bang that means that people's lives will be drastically different tomorrow, but the tinkering measures will continue to hurt people over time.

  • Volume 24 Issue 9 - Bill Shorten's WorkChoices moment
    • Abstract: Measham, Fatima There was plenty of material for the Federal Opposition Leader to work with as he delivered the budget reply. But it's hard to tell how much of it merely reflects the diabolical nature of the proposed changes to longstanding social compacts such as universal healthcare and youth unemployment assistance, and how much signals a genuine, substantive escalation of Labor opposition.

  • Volume 24 Issue 9 - Let's be good neighbours with Timor
    • Abstract: Brennan, Frank On Saturday, I had the pleasure of joining Timor Leste's erstwhile First Lady Kirsty Sword Gusmao and the Timorese ambassador Abel Guterres (pictured) at a public meeting at the Mary MacKillop Centre in Sydney, convened by long time campaigners Sister Susan Connelly and Tom Clarke from the Timor Sea Justice Campaign.

  • Volume 24 Issue 11 - Bishop's aid crusade must heed the poor
    • Abstract: O'Callaghan, Brian Sometimes an unexpected coincidence occurs, such as Pope Francis and Foreign Minister Julie Bishop both speaking - with passion, and within days of each other this week - about how to address poverty in the world's poorest countries.

  • Volume 24 Issue 9 - Australia slips in generosity ranking
    • Abstract: O'Callaghan, Brian Australians are a generous bunch. Every year, almost two million households donate to the work of Australian aid and development agencies. Among 5.4 million Catholics nationwide, around 90 per cent of parishes and 70 per cent of schools support Caritas Australia's work with the children, women and men most vulnerable to poverty and injustice.

  • Volume 24 Issue 10 - Who cares if Abbott and Hockey are Catholic?
    • Abstract: Hamilton, Andrew Much has been made of the religious faith and schooling of government ministers and the relationship between these things and government policy. To my mind the topic is a trivial indulgence that diverts attention from more important questions.

  • Volume 24 Issue 10 - Uni fee changes will erase egalitarianism
    • Abstract: Rodan, Paul Higher education is an important policy area and while it has never possessed the electoral salience of school education, it can certainly arouse passion. This is apparent from the reaction to the Federal Government's proposed changes in higher education, where some of the consequences are fairly predictable, others less so.
      PubDate: Tue, 15 Jul 2014 12:36:30 GMT
       
  • Volume 24 Issue 10 - 'Forgotten' Tiananmen's shadow on modern China
    • Abstract: Ellis, Evan Twenty-five years ago today the tanks rolled into Tiananmen Square. The glow of commemorative candlelit vigils in Hong Kong will not warm the mainland. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) remains committed to driving the past, this part anyway, from its borders. While grandparents may have transmitted the deprivation and violence of the Cultural Revolution and the Great Leap Forward, many educated youngsters have no idea of the events of a quarter of a century ago.

  • Volume 24 Issue 10 - Vatican perspective on Australia's refugee brutality
    • Abstract: Hamilton, Andrew Very few Vatican documents on world events are exciting. Most are broad, stress continuities, offer a detached, almost bloodless, view of the state of the world and give the Catholic Church a central and serene role in it. But these qualities can be helpful when local response to these events is febrile and anxious.

  • Volume 24 Issue 11 - Super's evil empire on shaky ground
    • Abstract: Toohey, Brian Many companies pay good money for their executives to attend conferences where at least one speaker can usually be relied upon to say, 'Change is the one constant in the modern world'. Change is the last thing those who run Australia's superannuation industry want to embrace.

  • Volume 24 Issue 11 - High Court backs ministerial power over asylum
           seekers
    • Abstract: Murphy, Kerry Over the last few years the High Court has made several decisions which found the Government wanting when making decisions regarding asylum seekers. Inevitably the cases are decided on the basis of whether a power was correctly applied or interpreted. Sometimes the results favoured applicants and asylum seekers, sometimes they upheld the position of the Government.

  • Volume 24 Issue 11 - Philosophy professor's cavalier interventions
    • Abstract: Matthews, Brian It was January 1968. In those summer days before the start of my first term as a university lecturer, I'd arrive early in the morning, go into my room and more or less skulk there. I didn't even go to morning tea. I knew two people in the whole School of Language and Literature at Flinders University and they were both on leave.

  • Volume 24 Issue 11 - Understanding the climate change battle of attitudes
    • Abstract: Hamilton, Andrew World Environment Day this year was celebrated in the shadow of policies crossing in the mail. As the United States President took steps to deal with carbon emissions, the Australian Prime Minister walked away from them. Beneath the complex political considerations in these responses to the natural environment stir deep passions. Disputes about the environment and climate change are not simply about facts but touch something deeper, almost religious, in character.

  • Volume 24 Issue 11 - Chronicle of an asylum seeker's death foretold
    • Abstract: Measham, Fatima In Gabriel Garcia Marquez' novella, Chronicle of a Death Foretold, a man with 'his father's Arab eyelids and hair' was murdered in broad daylight, knifed several times against his mother's door, a breath from sanctuary.

  • Volume 24 Issue 11 - School leavers' class wars
    • Abstract: Savage, Ellena Year 12 tertiary entrance exams: turning 17-year-olds into nervous wrecks since the 1830s. They divide the smart from the dumb, the hopefuls from the no-hopers, and, what it boils down to more often than not, the privately educated from the state educated. But what if there was another way, a way that properly acknowledged the impact high schools have on their students' access to university admission?

  • Volume 24 Issue 11 - My intersex wake-up call
    • Abstract: Gittins, Barry Friends of mine had their first child recently and my first, 'obvious' question - 'Is it a boy or a girl?' - was answered by a jubilant, sleep-deprived father: 'It's a girl!'

  • Volume 24 Issue 11 - Why 71% of Australians want boats pushed back
    • Abstract: Hamilton, Andrew In the lead up to Refugee Week the attitudes of Australians to people who come by boat to seek protection made sober reading. According to a Lowy poll 71 per cent of Australians believed Australia should turn back asylum seeker boats. That figure was far higher even than the Prime Minister's disapproval rating.

  • Volume 24 Issue 11 - What's eating Syria and Iraq
    • Abstract: Murphy, Kerry The capture of Iraq's second largest city Mosul by the extremist Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIS/ISIL) group is a major concern not just for Iraq but for the whole Middle East. ISIS, or ad-Dawlat al-Islamiyya fi'l-'Iraq wa'sh-Sham, is probably more extreme in its Sunni Islamic jurisprudence and theology than Al Qaeda. Al Qaeda reportedly cut off ties to ISIL in February after a power struggle between the two groups.

  • Volume 24 Issue 11 - The weight and wonder of a brother's last words
    • Abstract: Doyle, Brian 'The answer is in the questioning.' That was the very last thing my brother Kevin said before he died. He died on the first day of summer two years ago. Six words, after millions of words spoken and read and taught and typed over 60 years. He had been a college professor. We give great weight to last words, the words spoken on the precipice. Most of the time I would guess that those words are about love. I would guess that many of those words have something to do with light. I would guess that some of those final words are shrieks or gasps or utterances of astonishment.

  • Volume 24 Issue 11 - Law disorder in Campbell Newman's Queensland
    • Abstract: Brennan, Frank All is not well in the Sunshine State. Campbell Newman's government is running a strong 'law and order' line, and there's nothing new in that. Governments often find political advantage in being tough on crime.

  • Volume 24 Issue 11 - Atheist Clive James' hymn to God
    • Abstract: Harvey, Philip Rumours of his death are greatly exaggerated, but Clive James has since 2010 made a public art of dying. He has been suffering for some time an advanced stage of terminal leukemia and emphysema. Breathing is difficult and he saves his energy for his writing. Public appearances are rare. Faced with mortality in extremis the poet-critic stays in his adopted home of England, regretting he may never visit Australia again.

While both John Paul II and Benedict XVI made reference to climate change in passing, Francis is planning an entire encyclical on environmental questions, which is expected to be released later this year. It is not difficult to predict that climate change will be on top of his agenda.

  • Volume 24 Issue 10 - Australia's siege mentality viewed from Greece
    • Abstract: Bouras, Gillian I left Australia decades ago. Migration was not my idea, but I had it easy, practically speaking, in the Peloponnese: I was not fleeing for my life, I had a family and a house to go to, and there were no threats of death, rape, or imprisonment. Nor were there threats of starvation or poverty. I was the wife of a Greek, and so my rights were acknowledged and my papers in order. I got a job, and my children were always with me.

  • Volume 24 Issue 10 - Pope Francis and the power of tears
    • Abstract: Mullins, Michael In 1969 the Victorian premier Sir Henry Bolte famously said of protesting railway workers: 'They can march up and down till they're bloody well footsore, it's nothing to do with me.' Bolte was unmoved by the protesters in much the same way that recently members of the current Coalition Government were unimpressed when students hectored Foreign Minister Julie Bishop at Sydney University and former Coalition identity Sophie Mirabella at Melbourne.

Yet together they now boast the support of 20 per cent of the community (up from 14 per cent at the last elections). And they now hold the future of the Abbott Government's legislative program in their hands, including the Budget, failing agreement between the major parties.

    • Abstract: Gierck, Michele My 88-year-old mother has been taken by ambulance to the Accident and Emergency ward at the local public hospital. I arrive twenty minutes later. That's enough time for the young doctor who has scrupulously read my mother's extensive medical history, to call me aside. (He's realised I'm Mum's Medical Power of Attorney or Medical Substitute Decision Maker.)

It is hard to recall such a strong and direct call by the Catholic Bishops on our politicians on a matter of major public policy.

If it was the superbly efficient, ever-loyal Nomeneta Schwalger, you knew your business would be dealt with promptly and effectively. If Geraldine Battersby answered your call, her telephone manner was so impressive you'd think you were going to be connected to the Pope - or at least a cabinet minister.

    • Abstract: Ormerod, Neil In late 2010 when Tony Abbott had risen to the leadership of the Coalition, as leader of the Opposition, I wrote a piece in Eureka Street questioning his moral core . I compared him to a high school debater whose commitment is only to the present argument, and what he needs to say in order to win. Put into a different situation, he is more than happy to argue the opposite position if it suits his then objectives.

Purporting to have been 'moody, discontented, restless, almost a character in a Russian novel', Perelman is shaken from his lethargy by a chance encounter with the magazine Spicy Detective in which he discovers with growing amazement the amorous and violent adventures of Private Eye Dan Turner. It is the sort of thing that only happens to someone like Perelman, ever vigilant for the odd and the weird. And yet, and yet ...

    • Abstract: Mullins, Michael When Tony Abbott reintroduced knights and dames back in March, commentators said it was a sign he was 'stuck in the 1950s'. Another characteristic of 1950s Australian society was its sectarianism. The nation was bitterly divided along religious lines, with 'mixed' marriages frowned upon and Protestants often denied employment in Catholic dominated workplaces, and vice-versa.

The recent victims had failed to find sanctuary where they were hiding, in hospitals and places of worship in the oil hub of Bentiu.

In doing so, they bring to the present the experiences of our country's past so that they can carry them into the future. ANZAC Day is a powerful and worthy ritual. But the tales of our soldiers make up only one of the ongoing chapters in the story of our country. There are many others.

Tax concessions to superannuants and those using negative gearing amount to more than the aged pension. Yet there is no mention of that; the silence is deafening.

My maternal grandfather, Graeme Mills - Poppa - had just finished describing a long, hard night in New Guinea during the Second World War, when, as a stretcher bearer, he'd tended to two landmine victims, including one who had lost his leg. He spent the night darting between the two maimed men, providing physical aid, and whatever comfort and assurance was possible. Turns out he was lucky that he didn't end up laid out alongside them: the next morning he discovered that the entire narrow ridge was riddled with mines.

They argue that current conditions have set us on track for a return to 19th century-levels of inequality, where inheritance - not labour, earnings or merit - determines quality of life.

But now killer robots - drones in an advanced stage of development - are a daytime reality. They will be autonomous in their operation, able to identify targets, track them down, work out the best way to destroy them, and learn from their failures - all without the need for human direction. These qualities do raise serious ethical questions.
