布雷维克的战争号角

发自纽约——为了方便讨论,让我们假设那位曾经声称欧洲“已经到了伊斯兰化最后阶段”的荷兰政客霍尔特·怀德斯是对的:挪威大屠杀凶手安德斯·布雷维克就是个疯子。怀德斯在Tweeter上留言说:“那个侮辱反伊斯兰斗争的精神患者简直令人作呕,也对全球反伊斯兰运动造成了重大打击”。

这个假设并不那么荒谬。此人先是用炸弹袭击了奥斯陆市中心大片地区,然后用一支突击步枪屠杀了超过60名参加夏令营的年轻人,委婉地说,这个行为确实是非常怪异——因为心智健全的人永远都不会动这样的念头。

自然,同样的事情也发生在一群年轻人身上,他们决定通过劫持民航客机撞向纽约和华盛顿的公共建筑来自杀和屠杀别人。但不像美国某些虚无主义杀手那样,无论是布雷维克还是那些“9·11”恐怖分子,他们都杀戮都是有目的的。在伊斯兰极端分子眼中杀害大批无辜者并不是一场个人公众表演,而是针对罪恶而堕落的西方的一场圣战。

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.
