    Later this year, Australians will vote on a referendum to enshrine an Indigenous Voice to Parliament, but many Indigenous Australians remain undecided, reflecting the complexities of the issue.

    The bandage around my knee drew the practitioner’s eye, and my attempt to talk it away as a minor issue  was no match for her professional perseverance. While I waited, she called in a specialist from orthopaedics, who took a good look at the affected area and warned me that unless I presented myself at outpatients very soon, ‘this could kill you’.

    From public good to private gain: The failure of employment services

    • John Falzon

    No doubt there were some who genuinely believed that privatising  employment services would result in better services at a lower cost to the public purse. But the engineers of the socially destructive projects of the neoliberal era knew very well that they were more likely to result in the enrichment of some to the detriment of many.

    Can't Let It Be

    • Barry Divola
    • 06 December 2023

    A group’s break-up is no longer an impediment to the band’s – or, more to the point, the brand’s – ability to continue. The release of Now And Then was one of the biggest music events of 2023, a foregone conclusion when something is billed as ‘the final Beatles song’. And the result?

    Forgive us our debts

    • David James
    • 23 November 2023

    If money is just a set of rules, we need to ask, how can these rules best serve society and not cause crises? We know, after thousands of years of evidence, that the debt-based system of money eventually self-destructs, and this time, the effects are likely to be felt around the world.

    Sixty years ago today, on November 22, 1963, the world lost three towering figures of the 20th century. On their diamond jubilee, do I think it was the end of the world as we know it when these three died? Each one shaped the twentieth century in a unique way. Each one left us with much to think about still.
