Policy choices since 2010 key determinants for life expectancy stalling for first time in century. Building hard infrastructure won't cut it. Investing in soft assets, communities and local services could halt the trends. A highway to healing as I call it

When indigenous people fight for their legal rights to land, they understand this relationship as them *belonging to* the land rather than the other way around. This difference represents the ontological shift that we must achieve if we are to build an ecological civilization.

There is absolutely no reason why Priya, Nades, Kopika and Tharunicaa should be detained on Christmas Island. It’s just cruel and a colossal waste of money.

Yes, and may this overhaul of the school curriculum start with economics. Growth-centric economics is killing us.

They know, but will not admit to themselves, that patriarchy is a repressive form of social organisation that controls and polices women, with an underlying threat of violence. So they project it on to me: you’re the one who really wants fascism and I’m the hero who opposes you

Me, a lefty: I would like to see more female leaders in politics ‘Progressive’ men: so you’d like to see Maggie Thatcher clones leading a fascist state then? Finally worked out why they do this - projection! ...

Yes I have also lost patience with the mode where if someone says ‘I would like to see more women in politics’ someone else says ‘so you would like to see Maggie Thatcher clones leading a fascist autocracy then’

I would argue that the human race is *not* committing mass suicide, but rather that some people are killing other people for money and power, right under the noses of most people, who don't realize quite what's happening.

It’s important news but access to healthcare is only one factor affecting longevity - along with healthy food, physical activity, housing, working conditions, social inclusion, equity, environment - the socioecological determinants of health in other words

So true. Also having watched the Goodes documentary last night, the whole bullying/blame the victim/kick people when they’re down culture fits with all this and is encouraged by gotcha politics
