COVER STORY Murray-Darling Basin Plan based on debunked science
“It is not the drought causing farmers to leave in droves, it’s governments taking 30 per cent of irrigation water under the new Murray Darling Basin water plan that is based on ‘erroneous’ science that is driving farmers out of business,” according to a long-time Murray River farmer.

CANBERRA OBSERVED What does it take to knock down GetUp?
The May 2019 federal election campaign was marked by an outlandish bid by activist group GetUp to target not only Coalition seats exclusively, but Coalition seats held by MPs that might broadly be characterised as conservative-leaning.

TECHNOLOGY Beijing's push to dominate world supply of electronics components
Having watched China become the world’s top manufacturing nation, Western nations, particularly the United States, Japan and South Korea, are increasingly concerned by Beijing’s efforts to dominate three sectors vital to the future of modern society: the production of rare-earth metals, lithium-ion battery production, and production of high-grade silicon, vital for both flat-sheet solar panels and semiconductors.

INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS Hong Kong protestors speak candidly to NCC, as Xi threat calls Tiananmen to mind
Amid calls for Tibetan independence by protestors in Nepal and for democracy in Hong Kong by protestors there, China’s President Xi Jinping has responded with a chilling warning reminiscent of the Tiananmen Square massacre: “Anyone attempting to split China in any part of the country will end in crushed bodies and shattered bones.”

LIFE ISSUES Of foetuses and fallacies
Rarely is the progressive bias of the mainstream media and the major political parties more flagrantly on display than in discussions of “reproductive rights”. On this issue in particular the arguments in favour of more permissive laws are conspicuously thin, amounting to little more than the parroting of a handful of clichés.

LIFE ISSUES To hold the hand ... an answer to euthanasia
Because of the lack of respect for life at its genesis, there is now a global push for legalisation of the premature disposal of life at its end: euthanasia and assisted suicide.

LIFE ISSUES Melbourne and Brisbane on the march
The annual March for the Babies, held each year close to the anniversary of the passing of the 2008 Victorian abortion law, one of the worst in the Western world, took place this year on October 12. Victoria’s abortion law allows abortion up to the very moment preceding birth, and tramples the conscience rights of health professionals who wish to have nothing to do with the taking of innocent human lives just as the buds are about the blossom.

QUEENSLAND AFA/NCC forum addresses euthanasia legislation
The National Civic Council (NCC) and the Australian Family Association (AFA) convened an important forum in Queensland on October 19, which addressed a number of key challenges in the state, including an anticipated bill to legalise euthanasia or assisted suicide.

THE ENVIRONMENT Fresh visit to the Great Barrier Reef in its death throes
Several decades ago, academic researchers found that threats to the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) attract media attention, generous funding for research, and public recognition for themselves. Eco-threats began to eclipse basic research in funding and research interest.

COLD WAR HISTORY Was the Vietnam War worth fighting?
The recent release of the Australian movie, Danger Close, about the Battle of Long Tan, has brought the Vietnam War back into our awareness. In the Battle of Long Tan, a Company of Australian troops defeated a vastly superior force composed of North Vietnamese Army (NVA) regulars and Viet Cong troops. The aim of the NVA leadership was to overrun the Australian taskforce headquarters, inflicting a catastrophic defeat that would force Australia out of the war.

HUMOUR England United, and all that ... but with Hume?
Good on you, Ripper Boris, on becoming leader of the UK! From all of us here in the Convict Colony, well done, mate. It’s a great achievement to become boss man of such a proud land, England; a land which of course will always be Australia’s Mother (Goose) Country. Good one, Captain Cook!

MUSIC Usage and abusage: Words what got rhythm
Analysing the musicality of language is all but impossible but, to paraphrase Justice Potter Stewart’s famous comment about obscenity, “you know it when you hear it”.

CINEMA AND CULTURE The mirror of villainy
Todd Phillip’s Joker has sparked a lot of discussion, not just in the more “geeky” corners of the web where hyper-informed individuals debate the nuances of comic books and their adaptations, but also in more mainstream newspapers and magazines. Its impact and influence is debated with an intensity and coverage that I’m not sure I remember seeing in recent times.

BOOK REVIEW Eclectic example of genre of decline
There are many others. American paleoconservative and former Presidential candidate (in 1996) Pat Buchanan had a crack in 2002 with his The Death of the West. Dambisa Moyo thinks the battle is already over – her contribution in 2011 was entitled How the West Was Lost, past tense and all. Mary Eberstadt takes a variant approach in her declinist book, How the West Really Lost God.

BOOK REVIEW Brief battle a model for combined arms
The Canadians had captured Vimy Ridge in April 1917, and British – including Australian divisions – had great success at Messines in June that year, but Third Ypres, from July to November 1917, had been disappointing and costly.

LETTERS
There is nothing more comforting to an old teacher than to read praise from a former student, especially one of the stature of Hal Colebatch.

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM ABC survey finds majority agree there is unfair discrimination against religious Australians
Our taxpayer-funded national broadcaster, the ABC, has recently launched another intriguing survey about Australians’ attitudes, concerns and beliefs. There are two questions that provide some insight into the topic of unjust discrimination against religious Australians.
