亲爱的世界,请对抗美国

人可不可能不爱自己的祖国呢?两年来,我像许多美国人那样,全心专注于证明、揭露以及提醒整个美国有关布什政府的犯罪行为及其违反《美国宪法》和法治的事实——这在国内通常被边缘化了。我敢肯定,一旦美国人知道布什政府以他们的名义做了什么,他们都会觉得恐惧和愤怒。

.三个月前,布什政府仍然抓住其邪恶的演讲片断“我们不拷打囚犯”不放。现在,医生促进人权协会已经发表报告,证明被美国控制的被押人员有外伤,而且,甚至测谎测试都确认了这些被押人员被拷打过。红十字组织的报告泄漏了这样的事实:拷打和战争犯罪。珍·迈尔(Jane Mayer)完美的调查作品《黑暗面》已经上市,该作品显示:拷打是由上层精心设计和指挥的。《华盛顿邮报》为读者提供了对一个名叫奥马尔·卡德尔(Omar Khadr)的未成年的加拿大人的刑讯审问录像报道,奥马尔·卡德尔展示了他仍然流着血的腹部伤口,哭泣着向抓捕他的人求饶。

所以,事实的真相是公开的并可以自由地获得的。但是,美国人仍然在小憩,担心他们的体重,逛商场打发时间。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
