#ACAB

My thoughts are scattered, my eyes burn, and my heart hurts. The murder of George Floyd created a shockwave that erupted tensions across the world but particularly in American communities. I can’t put all my perspectives into one, long, analytical article. However, over the next few days, I hope to share with your snippets of…

Domestic Violence: A Broken System

21 women have been killed in Australia by a domestic partner in the last 21 weeks. We have been talking about domestic violence for multiple years now, and the government continues to fund organisations, so why is nothing changing? 4 days ago, a woman in Western Sydney was fatally stabbed by her husband in a…

The Economic Impacts of COVID-19

Written by Guest Author: Aniket Panesar So it’s pretty clear, COVID-19 has not been good for the economy. The COVID-19 crisis has resulted in increased financial market volatility, depreciation of the Australian Dollar and has led to sharp increases in unemployment levels within Australia. Considering this, it has not been a good economic start for…

The Danger of Federalism

The current health crisis impacting each corner of the earth has forced governments to act swiftly. Unsurprisingly, this has resulted in confusion in nations where citizens are under the authority of multiple leaders who give different instructions. This has been the case in Australia, and this is the danger of federalism. Federalism, in the Australian…

Anti-Vaxxers: A Fundamentally Flawed Movement

10 Songs on Repeat: 1. There Must be More Than Blood by Car Seat Headrest (2020)- The Will Toledo led band's latest project is an ambitious and enjoyable sonic left-turn from their typically scrappy, guitar-oriented indie rock. There Must be More Than Blood plays out like a combination of anthemic Bruce Springsteen and the slow-burning electronica of…

America’s Coronavirus Failure

America’s coronavirus response has been a catastrophic disaster. Leaders, obviously upset at the lack of sport currently being played, have decided to take part in a new sport, the blame game. An utterly meaningless and futile process whereby no one takes responsibility, and thousands continue to suffer. Well, President Trump, the buck stops with you,…

The Collapse of the Oil Industry

The Music Roundup Week 16: An Experiment

10 Tracks on Repeat: 1. Shameika by Fiona Apple (2020)- To say that the singer-songwriter's new record is amazing would be an understatement, it’s a virtual cultural phenomenon. Shameika is just one of many excellent tracks on Fetch the Bolt Cutters; however, it does stand out to me as the top highlight. 2. Idontknow by Jamie xx (2020)-…
