Just like our friends in Europe, we too value freedom of expression and religion. It’s enshrined in our constitution. But can we balance that with such norm-defying practices? Many opposed to the burqa complain that it is anti-women and even anti-Australian.
Recent plans from the coalition could finally see the GST war come to an end. GST, the goods and services tax, has been a stickling point between states for some time; Western Australia pays far more than it receives and…

Trump has been busy this year. He slapped 25% taxes on imported steel and aluminium — even from allies — and cited national security as his rationale. Could Trump’s move end up working for the US and even Australia?
More than 40 secondary schools in the United Kingdom have recently banned skirts as part of their school uniforms. Reasons cited for the move include an attempt to curb bullying of transgender students, and prevent the over-sexualisation of young girls.

Modern medicine has gifted Australians — on average — with more than 4,000 extra days of life compared to what we could expect 50 years ago. The work underway in gene specific medicines would look more at home in the pages of a science fiction novel than a science journal.

Biometric security tech is a rapidly growing field. As this technology branches out into society, you can expect to see it become an ever-greater part of your life. This new tech is becoming a platform for government control.
