中国掠夺印度领土

新德里—与日本、越南和菲律宾在东海和南海岛屿整个不休并没有让越来越专断的中国停下脚步,它又新开辟了一条前沿,出兵越界侵入争议中的喜马拉雅边境禁区。4月15日夜,解放军的一个排暗中进入中印巴三方交界附近,深入在印控区19公里扎营,并向印度政府主张具有战略关键意义的750平方公里高海拔高原地区。

因国内政治危机焦头烂额的印度大吃一惊,匆忙寻求积极响应中国的领土掠夺——这是中国开始对邻国采取更强硬政策以来最大、最具战略性的不动产掠夺。中国将继续侵占,建设雪线高原的永久军营,还是准备在获得印度羞辱性的军事妥协后撤离仍不明朗,而且从某种程度上说,这个问题并没有什么意义。

事实是,中国的“和平崛起”已经让位于日渐对四邻的日渐专横,它扩大了自己的“核心利益”——即不容妥协的利益——和领土主张,同时表现出准备不惜冒险实现这一目标。比如,不但升级了其对日本对尖阁列岛(钓鱼岛)几十年控制权的挑战,还从去年控制黄岩岛开始于菲律宾针锋相对。

    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.

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.
