Embiggen Books gig tonight

Do come along if you're in Melbourne - I gather there are still seats available. This is likely to be a cosy setting to meet people, too, so it has that advantage over other gigs that are happening tonight.

The topic is about a plan for secularism in Australia (though it will be interesting to think about how this differs from secularism in other countries). It does seem to me that policy in Australia is generally driven by secular goals, to be pursued in secular ways - but are there lingering influences from more theocratic times? I think there are. I think there's much to do if we recommitted ourselves to the notion of secular government.

Come along and hear about it.
