百日孤独

圣地亚哥—暴力正在乌克兰兴起,示威者开始死于政府代理人之手,而欧盟威胁要制裁负有“暴力和过度使用武力”责任的乌克兰官员。乌克兰总统亚努科维奇逃离基辅,留下一个住着外来猪和羊的私人动物园——以及德国、法国和波兰的外交部长,他们正在致力于牵线结束暴力的协议。

但在几乎相同的时间,暴力也在委内瑞拉兴起,示威者开始死于政府代理人之手,美洲国家组织(Organization of American States,OAS)发声宣布……它不会发声。OAS说,委内瑞拉自己会解决问题。在加拉加斯,你看不到其他拉丁美洲国家的外交部长——他们当然没有在谴责镇压、要求结束暴力。与此同时,死亡人数一直在上升。

如此反差凸显出一个人人皆知的秘密:拉丁美洲地区机构很弱,甚至比欧洲的还弱。但这也揭露了令一些东西:政府和领导人在面对侵犯、镇压甚至死亡时保持沉默,因为不论说什么都等同于“干涉”他国内政,谴责这样的政府和领导人的逻辑在道德上是站不住脚的。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend. In reality, total factor productivity, the best summary measure of the pace of technical change, has been stagnating since 2005 in the US and across the advanced-country world.

    The Hungarian Government’s Failed Campaign of Lies

    The Hungarian government has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees. But no such plan exists, only a taxpayer-funded propaganda campaign to help a corrupt administration deflect attention from its failure to fulfill Hungarians’ aspirations.
