Ep 18: A Time for Mainstream Australians

Written by and
22 May 2019

Was the upset victory of the Morrison-led Coalition Government a stunning repudiation of the progressive left and its identity politics and climate change obsessions, or a vote by a conservative electorate for steady as she goes? And what does it mean for the populist revolt? (01:38 – 20:43). With a majority in the House and a more amenable Senate, what should be the agenda of the Morrison Government to deliver the prosperity,  opportunity and freedoms sought by mainstream Australia? (20:43 – 35:25). And where should the Centre-Left go now, as its international counterparts continue their lurch to the left? (35:25 – 49:08).

Scott Hargreaves and Dr Chris Berg are joined by Daniel Wild and Gideon Rozner to discuss these issues and share what they’ve been reading, watching and listening to this week, including Seven Types of AtheismThe Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza (Dallas, Texas), Valley of the Boom  and Game of Thrones.
