Me quoted in Fairfax papers on tax haven use
Me quoted by Georgia Wilkins in The Age (and other Fairfax publications) today. John Passant, from the school of political science and international relations, at the Australian National University, said the trend noted by Computershare was further evidence multinationals did not take global regulators seriously. ”US companies are doing this on the hard-nosed basis that any [regulatory] changes that will be made won’t have an impact on their ability to avoid tax,” he said. ”They think it is going to take a long time for the G20 to take action, or that they are just all talk.” (1)

Power, police and paedophile priests

The problems are systemic and require systemic solutions, not band-aids. All capitalism can give us, given the importance of the police and religion to the system and the power they have, is band-aids and Royal Commissions.

Until the privileged position and power of the police and priests is overthrown there will be more deaths and injuries at the hands of police and ongoing abuse of children by priests and others.

Of penises and priests, placards and protestors

The State and capital will attack the Other – whether it be indigenous Australians, Muslims or refugees – for their own benefit. They will not investigate one of their own, in this case the Catholic Church over child abuse, unless there is real pressure from below to do so.

In defence of the Greens

The main reason for Cardinal Pell’s outburst was not morals but money. The Greens question funding to private schools at the expense of public schools. Pell, in defending the privileged schools, looks to me much like the money changers in the Temple.

Priests, paedophilia and papal protection

Benedict’s statement to Irish victims of the Church’s reign of terror against children and subsequent cover up was an apologia for the Church, not […]

Jesus Christ – rebel without a Claus

The industrial revolution and the expansion of capitalism worldwide commodified all human relations, including Christmas. Thus the traditions of the past became objects of profitability.

Tony Abbott: the anti-Santamaria

That’s the bind for the Liberals. How do they win back the support of the ruling class as a class? Certainly voting against the ETS won’t do that.

The Church and gay marriage in Canberra

Here in the Australian Capital Territory the Labor Party (in minority Government) supported a Greens’ Bill giving legal recognition to same sex unions which passed just under 2 weeks ago. Federally the homophobic and anti-equal rights Rudd Labor Government will suggest changes to the Act which effectively gut it. The local Catholic archbishop weighed in […]
