After our recent gathering of experts in Canberra for the 2020 Summit, I did not recall seeing any reports about one very pressing social problem having been discussed – the breakdown of marriage and family. This issue certainly deserves our
Last week at a Melbourne university I found myself in the middle of something called Sex It Up 08. I could have been forgiven for thinking I was in the middle of a red light district. A large public student
It had to come to this. Add one part political correctness, two parts social engineering, and three parts biotechnology, and what do you get? The redundant male. Scientists in the UK have said that they are now able to produce
Take any contentious social issue of the day, and you will find plenty of illogic, name-calling, emotional appeals, and confused thinking. All this is much easier than actually dealing with the evidence and facts. Facts can get in the way
Why am I not surprised? The Victorian government has just announced that it will grant IVF access to homosexual couples. Minutes ago it declared that it will go ahead with most of the recommendations put forth in a Victorian Law
Two six year old boys are talking together, and one says that he found a condom on a patio. The other one asks, “What’s a patio?”. This joke is indicative of the culture we now live in. The sexualisation of
It seems daily we are now hearing about radical social experiments and the terrible toll they are taking on our children. These radical social upheavals are leaving devastation in their wake, and our kids are suffering big time.
In an age obsessed with granting adults every single whim and craving, often the biggest losers are children. We are so intent on pleasing the desires of adults, especially those from the various noisy minority groups, that the wellbeing of
There is never a shortage of examples of political correctness in Western society. And there is never a shortage of examples of how PC can be damaging and destructive of the very things we should really be caring about.
Not everyone can have children, and not everyone wants children. That’s OK. There is no law mandating fecundity. For various reasons, many may want to forgo the whole involved process of bearing and raising children.
Two recent well-publicised events have highlighted the importance of family, of parenting, and the vital role of fathers. The first was the surprise announcement of the Victorian Premier, and the second involved a payout to a member of the so-called
If someone supports John Howard, then surely he is a racist, right-wing redneck who is completely biased and should be absolutely rejected. Or so argues much of the liberal/left and the mainstream media. So what do you do when a
Prime Minister John Howard’s decision to clamp down on porn and alcohol in aboriginal communities in the Northern Territory to combat high rates of child sexual assault has been overwhelmingly welcomed by the general public. Most Australians rightly believe it
We live in strange times. So persistent and insistent have been the various radical minority groups, that increasingly we are living in an Alice in Wonderland world. Readers will recall this exchange between Humpty Dumpty and Alice:
Since the 1960s, the Western world has embarked upon a novel and large scale social experiment: the demolition of marriage and the elevation of divorce. Never before in the West have so many marriages ended in divorce, and
In the minds of many, there are no more scarier words than these: “Hi, we’re from the government and we’re here to help you”. Patronising government bureaucrats can certainly come up with some nightmarish scenarios. When governments become convinced they
Is the mainstream media (MSM) biased? Well, I suppose it all depends on who you ask. If you are secular, leftwing, and into the various trendy social causes, you will probably find the media to be a paragon of objectivity.
Some of you may have seen the recent media reports about a group of school children engaging in sex while their teacher was out of the room. The five fifth-grade students from New Orleans face criminal charges after authorities said
The war against our children never lets up. Various activist groups are continually aiming to get our children into their less-than-healthy lifestyles. Such attempts occur at a regular pace, and it is hard to keep up with it all.
I read a brief news item recently about a school which would no longer give low marks to students, such as a fail, because it did not want the kids’ self-esteem to be damaged. It felt such grades would unfairly
