    Child protection is about entire adult communities connecting with young people to take on a nurturing role. In Native American communities, where every adult takes responsibility for every child, the guiding principle is that 'it takes a village to raise a child'.

    Cardinal Pell's views on climate change are his own

    • Michael Mullins

    Cardinal Pell does not underscore his climate change denial with theological justification, as he does with his position on issues such as human cloning. It is unfair to him, and to the Catholic Church, to assume that his personal views on climate change represent Church teaching.

    Nothing new in cynicism towards politicians

    When reconciliation becomes a last-minute vote catcher, only the deepest, most corrosive cynicism is possible. Trampling on the rights of others for political advantage was the modus operandi of Adelaide's Nomenclature Committee in 1837.

    Rudd strip club story a promotion of women as sex objects

    For most Australians, endearing naughtiness was the beginning an end of the Kevin Rudd sex club story. What was sadly overlooked was the de facto promotion of the sex industry, and implicit toleration of the damage it does to human dignity and the long struggle to ensure that women are not looked upon as sex objects.

    Iraq's overlooked political factions

    • Dan Read
    • 08 August 2007

    The Iraq situation is a lot more complex than a simple standoff between western democracy and political Islam. Until this is understood, a viable solution that takes Iraq towards genuine democracy and self government is impossible.

    Tackling the problem of terrorism by the application of force is unlikely to succeed. Pouring blood on the Iraqi desert produced an upsurge of terrorism where none had been before: cruelty, genocide even, but not terrorism, let alone fundamentalist terrorism.

    John Howard’s "relaxed and comfortable" approach to national life, then, was not simply a rejection of Paul Keating’s aggressive, deliberate reforms. It represented a vile pandering to our cultural inertia, an affirmation of our basest tendencies.

    • Madeleine Hamilton
    • 02 April 2007

    Bettie Page experiences an equal, if not greater, level of popularity today than she did during the peak of her career as a pin-up model in the early to mid 1950s. But the exploitative, even dangerous, aspects of her work, should not be pushed out of sight and forgotten.

    • 02 April 2007

    In 2001, science broadcaster Robyn Williams wrote a novel inspired by Orwell's 1984, but set in 2007. It suggests that change is occurring with exponential speed, and that our opportunities for altering course are dwindling numerically, shrinking in size and diluting in quality.

    To address the problem of Third World debt, citizens of developed countries need to place the satisfaction of human needs at the heart of government policy. A history of poor governance, greed, and cultural imperialism are at the core of the Global North’s exploitation of the South.

    When multinationals and politicians seem to be looking the other way in the face of an impending climate change crisis, it’s good to know there are people out there pushing for reform and stirring debate at the highest levels.
