The Null Device
The welfare state, Howard-style
Family values masquerading as social justice:
The conservative government of Australia extends its social-engineering-through-taxation scheme, with a plan to punitively tax non-breeders
and use the proceeds to pay people to have children ("be fruitful and multiply", as the Good Book (which was written back in the days when the world was under
populated) says). The amount of tax Australians pay is becoming increasingly dependent on their divergence from John Howard's model of Judaeo-Christian family values. It's chequebook paternalism, folks.
