The 88th and final issue of The Rationalist, journal of the Rationalist Society of Australia, has been published.
The Rationalist has used a number of cartoonists in each issue so, for cartoonists, this is one less opportunity to demonstrate our craft.
Editors are moving on and the cost of publication has gone beyond the financial capacity of the Society. The Society will continue publishing in other ways and on its website.
The 88th Rationalist can be found in news agents; pdfs of earlier issues, and more information on the Society at www.rationalist.com.au
One issue that the Rationalist Society has been strong on has been the Constitutional legality of the Government’s school chaplains program. Here is the cover of the 87th issue:
Here is a cartoon from the last issue, illustrating the article ‘Inside the great Fairfax fiasco’.
