Criticism of Western Civilisation isn’t new, it was part of the Enlightenment in Life, Law & Culture
Some think Western Civilisation is so under attack it needs to be the subject of special study to preserve it. Another view might be that it is such a resilient culture it can adapt and survive on its own quite nicely.

Newsflash. For most, energy remains affordable

Electricity prices have doubled in the past ten years, climbing 117%, which is 76% more than inflation. Gas prices climbed 89%, 53% more than inflation. In a report to be released on Friday by the Australian Council of Social Service and the Brotherhood of St Laurence, we examine what these climbing prices have actually cost different types of households, after taking full account of energy use and government concessions and rebates, including solar energy rebates.

The digital divide: small, social programs can help get seniors online

In Australia, use of the internet is almost universal. At last count, 86% of the population was digitally connected. Despite the continuing stereotype that many older people are not technologically savvy, or that they can’t learn new things, in 2015 79% of people aged 65 and over had used the internet compared to 6% in 2001. Increasingly, government services such as myGov and myagedcare rely on individuals having access to computers and the internet, and the knowledge of how to use them. Older adults who do not have these skills may therefore miss out on the services and support they…
