Family on the edge : stability and fertility in prosperity and recession by Barry Maley( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The study begins with an overview of some of the key markers of the present condition of the Australian family and highlights its instability and the cultural decline of the importance of marriage, a decline exacerbated by family law. This is followed by a discussion of the recent trend in national fertility and its determinants, which suggests some points of connection between partner stability, adequate recognition of the economics of child rearing, and decisions to have children. The study concludes with an overview of the implications of the current recession for fertility and makes some recommendations for national family policy on child support and reform of family law."--Introduction, p. 1
The servile mind : how democracy erodes the moral life by Kenneth R Minogue( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in German and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I have been sharpening my wits on Kenneth Minogue's prose for over half a century, and this latest book is as intellectually stimulating as his classic assault on liberalism all those years ago. For anyone who believes, as I do, that the contemporary political culture is profoundly sick, this is an original diagnosis of where it has gone wrong, and how it can be put to rights. What is more, in spite of the seriousness of the subject, the writing is as clear as a bell. Don't miss it."--Sir Peregrine Worsthorne" ""This is a work of meticulous logic and vast erudition. It provides an invaluable resource for anyone who has wondered why European elites embarked upon their disastrous cultural revolution in pursuit of abstract internationalist idealism, destroying in the process their intellectual land cultural heritage."-David Martin Jones, Associate Professor, Political Science and International Studies, University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia" "Can democracy survive in a nation of slaves? Aristotle thought not. But what if the slaves don't recognize their servile condition? Kenneth Minogue explores the many ways in which the citizens of the modern West have thoughtlessly exchanged independence of mind and body for government promises of security and harmony. The result is a topsy-turvy democracy where the rulers hold the people to account for their incorrect behavior and attitudes. Will the rulers one day throw the rascally people out? This is an insightful and unsettling bookand it would also be a frightening one if it were not so consistently entertaining."-John O'Sullivan, Radio Free Europe" "One of the grim comedies of the twentieth century was that miserable victims of communist regimes would climb walls, swim rivers, dodge bullets, and find other desperate ways to achieve liberty in the West at the same time that progressive intellectuals would sentimentally proclaim that these very regimes were the wave of the future. A similar tragicomedy is playing out in our century: as the victims of despotism and backwardness from Third World nations pour into Western states, academics and intellectuals present Western life as a nightmare of inequality and oppression." "In The Servile Mind: How Democracy Erodes the Moral Life, Kenneth Minogue explores the intelligentsia's love affair with social perfection and reveals how that idealistic dream is destroying exactly what has made the inventive Western world irresistible to the peoples of foreign lands. The Servile Mind looks at how Western morality has evolved into mere "politico-moral" posturing about admired ethical causesfrom solving world poverty and creating peace to curing climate change. Today, merely making the correct noises and parading one's essential decency by having the correct opinions has become a substitute for individual moral responsibility." "Instead, Minogue argues, we ask that our governments carry the burden of solving our socialand especially moralproblems for us. The sad and frightening irony is that the more we allow the state to determine our moral order and inner convictions, the more we need to be told how to behave and what to think."--Jacket
