So predictable has been the fallout from the horrible New Zealand massacre that I could have penned this piece a week ago, or a month ago, or a year ago. Details may have changed, but the same underlying narrative remains.
The left seems to have an inordinate love of pushing the most startling gloom and doom scenarios around. They are always on about how death and destruction are just around the corner, and how the doomsday clock is now just
Canadian psychologist, media sensation, and conservative intellectual Jordan Peterson is in Australia at the moment. He has already spoken to a number of sold-out audiences around the country, and tonight he takes on what may be his greatest challenge yet.
The issue of identity politics is a relatively recent one. It did not exist as it now does just a few short decades ago. But today we see it occurring throughout the West. It certainly is evident in a pronounced
Should Western societies ban the burqa? A number already have (such as Denmark, Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands, and France), and a number of others continue to debate this issue. There are legitimate concerns about the burqa, so such debates are
Everyone talks about freedom but often it is not thought through very carefully. It is a tremendous good, if properly understood and rightly made use of. But if not, it can be a real trap and lead to some very
Hmm, there have likely been many thousands of books penned on the topic found in my overly-ambitious title. But sometimes thinking of a descriptive, accurate, yet catchy title can be the hardest part in writing an article! But there is
“Walls are immoral.” “Walls don’t work.” “Walls are unjust.” How often have you heard these and similar statements made by those on the left? Like so many moral platitudes, they may give warm fuzzy feelings to the ones making such
The darling of the left in America, and a quite likely presidential candidate there in the near future, is Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The self-described “Democratic socialist” is competing with the likes of Bernie Sanders for the title
Any democracy worth defending depends on real political options and genuine opposition parties. When there is no viable opposition, or one that is too weak, or merely a pale imitation of the other party, then democracy will not last long.
The recent Victorian election was of course a major battle between Labor and Liberal. But it was also part of a larger ideological, political and cultural battle: the fight between left and right. Two major competing political ideologies and worldviews
Last night I offered 1500 words on the Victorian election result, presenting both political and spiritual commentary. Things were very grim indeed last night, and today things look just as bleak. While the numbers may not be quite as horrific
Every time a decidedly evil, ungodly and immoral politician or political party wins office, I ask myself questions such as the one found in my title. It is an oft-heard phrase found in the Old Testament. And these are the
With the crucial Victorian state election just hours away, the two major hard-left political parties in Australia have told us yet again how much they hate Christianity and how much they want to see it silenced altogether. While Victorian Labor
While most elections are important, the November 24 Victorian state election is really a key election indeed. We have had so many destructive policies under the Andrews’ Labor government already, and if they get back in things will become catastrophic.
For those not in the know, there was a by-election yesterday in Sydney for the federal seat of Wentworth. This seat just happened to be held by the Liberal Party and their conservative forebears ever since Australian federation 117 years
Many non-Americans – and probably many Americans as well – likely do not understand all the fuss, intrigue and controversy that erupts when a justice for the Supreme Court is nominated. Recently there have been many heated political and ideological
America has a new Supreme Court Justice, 53-year-old Brett Kavanaugh. The months’ long process culminated in a Senate 51-49 “cloture” vote on Friday. Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski was the only Republican to vote against him, while West Virginia Democrat Joe
Great thinkers and writers often think and write about many great things – and a great many things. The noted Christian apologist and academic C. S. Lewis was one such person. Although he had his area of specialisation – English
