回到社会主义

伦敦—对杰里米·科尔宾(Jeremy Corbyn)来说,值得注意的不是人们指责他缺少爱国主义。这位强硬左派外部人士成为工党领袖,堪称对英国传统的一次颠覆。他是否愿意在公众场合高唱《天佑女王》并不重要。就他的左派标签而言,值得注意的是修正主义程度有多大。

科尔宾是个老派社会主义者,支持对富人课以重税、把交通和公用设施重新收归国有。他的阶级斗争论表明他与主流社会民主派完全决裂。

战后欧洲的社会民主派一直是与资本主义妥协的产物。左翼意识形态(特别是在英国)更多地来源于某些基督教道德传统(“比马克思更加卫理公会”)而非任何政治教条。工党领袖,如二战后首位首相克莱蒙特·艾德礼,并不反对市场经济;他们只是希望管制市场,使其尽可能符合工作阶级的利益。

    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.
