Affirmative Action: Discrimination against Men and their Wives (15 Nov 84)
Document access: Subscriber, Member The appearance in May 1984 of the Labor government’s policy discussion Green Paper Affirmative Action for Women brings the application of quotas to the Australian workforce much closer to reality. Careful study of this document shows that Labor’s proposals follow the most objectionable and disastrous precedents of the American quota system...

A Sinister Freedom: The Insight of Orwell's 1984 (15 Aug 84)
Document access: Subscriber, Member “One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship . . . The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now do you begin to understand me?” (Orwell, '1984'). “Political power is the power to oppress others.” (Lin Biao)... To reflect on Orwell’s 1984 is to do more tthan pay homage to a literary masterpiece.

The Ten Commandments (15 May 84)
Document access: Subscriber, Member What value do the Ten Commandments have for ordinary people today?

Old books were destroyed to prevent people from reading their point of view... Australia, with the rest of the Western World, has aintained a proud tradition of freedom of thought and speech. We proclaim sentiments such as: “I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it!” However recent trends have caused some people to ask if we are in danger of losing that freedom.

Cannabis: Adverse Effects on Health (15 Nov 83)
Document access: Subscriber, Member Since the mid-1960s, the increasing popularity of marijuana use has underscored the need for a valid and objective evaluation of the effects of this drug on health. Much contradictory opinion has been expressed on this matter. The reasons for this are rather simple. First, knowledge of the health effects of marijuana is relatively scanty compared to the knowledge about such drugs as alcohol and tobacco. Second, and probably more importantly, marijuana use, its effects, and the legal controls on its use have created ideological issues that have been quite unnecessarily confused with questions of fact...
