Australia’s Campus History Crisis – Erasing The Past, Failing The Future

“History, as a discipline taught in Australian universities, is no longer about a study of the past, it has turned into a woke political project to erase our memory,” said Dr Bella d’Abrera, Director of the Foundations of Western Civilisation Project at the Institute of Public Affairs.

Netflix Universities…?

Netflix Universities…?

Universities around the world have compromised academic rigour to serve Woke maxims. Now, this centuries-old and once highly regarded institution of learning has risked becoming a ‘Netflix campus’ if a concerning trend isn’t reversed. It was revealed in the Daily Telegraph last week that Sydney’s university academics are opting to present recycled pre-recorded lectures to students, rather than in-person lectures that are

Festivals Of Woke

Woke Warriors Are After The PM

One thing all the recent media attention on the behaviour of MPs and their staff in Parliament House has not done is derail the Morrison government’s policy reform agenda – because there isn’t one.

Even though Victoria’s goldrush city of Ballarat is purported to be the state’s largest inland city, it is safe to say that it has more than its fair share of statues and monuments which honour heroes, icons, royalty, poets and goldfield pioneers. So abundant are they, in fact, that the Ballarat Information Centre has thought it prudent to compile an

Comic Books Are Now A Laughing Stock

History will likely say that the comic book industry was sunk by the repressive measures adopted to control the spread of coronavirus. In reality it is the industry’s bizarre obsession with identity politics that ensured the death of this classic storytelling medium was an inevitability.

Roaring Into The Twenties

When Ricky Gervais came roaring onto the stage at the recent Golden Globe awards, he cemented his place as the first anti-woke hero of the 2020s. ‘If you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to give a political speech,’ Gervais said. ‘You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything.
