向罪恶献贡

今年五月,全世界将在欧洲纪念二战结束60周年。但在喜庆地为此典礼筹划准备之时,15年前才刚刚重获二战中失去的主权的波罗的海三国:爱沙尼亚、拉脱维亚和立陶宛,却颇为不安。

这三国首脑已被邀请参加即将在莫斯科举行的游行,庆祝苏联红军战胜德国纳粹。 但是,正是这场庆典的东道主,俄罗斯,在苏联的名义下,发动了欧洲历史上最为血腥的战争,现在纪念的正是这场战争的结束。当然,苏联与阿道夫·希特勒一前一后发动战争,但是它的责任无法推卸。

今日的俄罗斯通过在红场举行庆典,强调突出苏联的胜利,来庆祝他们在那场战争中的战利品。其中之一就是我的祖国,立陶宛。在被吞并入斯大林帝国的过程中,伴随着她的是无数的人间悲剧。与德国不同,俄罗斯从未承认过它对战争以及无数无辜平民的墓冢所应负的责任。

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic. 

    From enabling the rise of Donald Trump to hacking the telephone of a murdered British schoolgirl, Murdoch’s media empire has staked its success on stoking populist rage.

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession. But, because the world economy has changed dramatically since then, central bankers have started to miss the monetary-policy forest for the trees.
