2013年停飞无人机

拉合尔——尽管2012年驻阿富汗美国和北约部队加速撤离,这场十年战争的阴暗面——依赖无人机展开空袭——依然丝毫没有减弱。事实上,无人机攻击还有所增强,因为美国在巴基斯坦实施的无人机作战与去年相比达到了前所未有的高度。随着奥巴马总统重新当选后摆脱竞选压力,利用新任期的第一年来解除暴力无疑符合美国——和我的祖国巴基斯坦的利益。

美国对巴基斯坦的无人机袭击反映了一种傲慢的心态,无视肇事者和无辜平民、罪犯和受害者以及行凶者和含冤者之间的区别。这种心态摆脱了一切正义束缚,对巴基斯坦部落地区绝大多数爱好和平的平民百姓的痛苦充耳不闻。

美国无人机袭击留下了一长串无辜平民的伤亡清单,没有人为这些平民的死亡负责。这些远程控制的飞行器以毁灭为目的,这样的成批杀害既残忍而且不分青红皂白。一个以民主价值观和无与伦比的人类自由承诺而闻名于世的国家竟然堕落到去杀害无辜的男人、妇女和儿童,这种行径是非常可耻的。

    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.
