John Anderson's Victory

Whether the distinguished former Nationals' leader John Anderson would do more good for his country back in parliament or continuing his polished podcast interviews with global thought leaders is a moot point, now that his eternally disappointing party has rejected his Senate bid.  What looks like a bad outcome might not be.

The nightmare of Covid hysteria and the crushing of freedom it has caused only grow afresh during an expected, relatively mild winter outbreak of an equally expected, overblown "variant".  Two questions are endlessly repeated by those who worry about these things.  One, how the hell did we get here?  And two, why did we give up our freedom without a fight?  The ground was long prepared for this.

Vile Slurs

Jacqui Lambie might or might not have called Alan Joyce a "p**f" outside the Qantas Chairman's Lounge.  Whatever she said, the incident has shone a light on the outworkings of the sexual revolution and on woke culture.

Zero Covid Man

At last an Australian politician has come out and actually said what the whole anti-Covid push is about.  Pity that the policy objective is impossible to achieve, is built on lies and will destroy what little remains of our freedoms.

Unforgiven

The late Frank Devine once said, during the debate over saying "sorry", that the Aborigines should just forgive us.  In the age of the politicisation of everything, of group rights, of cancel culture and of the rejection of Christian forgiveness in public life, Frank's implied hope is forlorn.  We are unforgiven, even when we have done nothing wrong, and they are a-coming for us.

What the Sexual Revolution Has Wrought

Toxic masculinity?  Try toxic culture.  The revolution of the 1960s has taken us all to some depraved and degrading places.  As we are currently reminded by very, very unedifying events.  Yet people are talking about the wrong problem.

The Empty Campus (Part One)

The universities of Australia are now lonely places.  Crushed by Lockdowns, and suffering from myriad assaults that go back much further.  Part One of this two part article examines the collapse of standards and the transformation of Australian universities into corporations where students are now seen as "customers".  Part Two will examine the ideological campus.

The vile South Australian abortion bill has passed the House of Assembly.  Its smooth passage was inadvertently aided by some slipshod, though well-meaning, opposition to the legislation.  In ceding ground to the radicals, right-to-life proponents just make the passage of this kind of legislation all too easy.

Two Titans Felled

Around a year ago, Rush Limbaugh was diagnosed with late stage lung cancer.  He has now passed away.  Like the also recently departed Sir Roger Scruton, Rush was a conservative titan.  He also revolutionised American media.  I penned this article - unpublished until now - i early 2020.

What we now know as "Big Tech" was once a series of little techs, brave start-ups taking on the world.  Not only did these entrepreneurs end up overturning the business world.  They have taken over everything.  And the result is far from pretty.
