An 18-year-old South Australian man is facing court in what police say was the largest seizure ever of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) in the state. He allegedly bought 20,000 tabs over the ‘dark net’. To counter this unquestioning uniform, vapid, materialistic, and militaristic culture – with its fear of anything that isn’t booze or tobacco – it’s worth remembering Aldous Huxley (1894–1964). The Brave New World author was so impressed by LSD that he requested a dosage on his deathbed. He said, ‘It is valuable because it gives the experiencer a better understanding of himself and

Meaningful reform over press freedom is on hold until a newly formed federal parliamentary committee produces findings from their inquiry, reports independent media outlet Crikey. Yet without any crossbenchers being involved, won’t the committee just produce a report with coalition and Labor partisan interests?

Is Labor’s Justine Elliot taking us for mugs, or is she just lazy? The Echo asked why she and her party refused to support a $75 raise for Newstart last week, and her office replied with ‘Justine’s response.’ Yet the response was actually Labor PM Katherine Gallagher’s full speech in parliament, without attribution.
