种族民族主义的破坏力

发自特拉维夫——今年夏天,以色列通过了一项极富争议的新“民族国家法”,声称“(行使)民族自决权”是“犹太人独有的权利”,同时将希伯来语确立为以色列的官方语言而将阿拉伯语降级到一个“特殊地位”。然而在多元化社会中强加某种同质身份定义的动力并非以色列所独有,相反你在整个西方世界都可以看到——这对和平来说可不是个好兆头。

在过去几十年的快速全球化过程中民族主义其实从未真正远离我们,只是不敌人们对更大经济繁荣的寄望而已。然而近期对全球化的抵制——不仅出于经济不安全和不平等,还由于对社会和人口构成变化的担忧——引发了那种老一套种族民族主义的卷土重来。

    Making America Mediocre

    Anne O. Krueger

    America owes its economic strength to its private sector, which has long benefited from an absence of undue influence by politicians and the state. But under US President Donald Trump's administration, discretionary decisions by policymakers are increasingly giving some companies advantages over others.
