欧洲危险的陈词滥调

耶路撒冷-欧洲对缔造和平和国际行为规范的号召,必定会成为巴拉克·奥巴马寻求重建被其前任严重破坏的大西洋两岸国家联盟的基础。在这一努力中,美国新任总统以多快的速度回应阿拉伯-以色列冲突,对欧洲来说是至关重要的。因为对欧洲来说,耶路撒冷一直比巴格达更加重要,但是,乔治·沃克·布什却拒绝听取这一点。

欧洲无力帮助解决阿拉伯-以色列冲突,不是源自其在核心问题上的立场,这些立场只在细小的方面和美国所持的立场不同。相反,欧洲在这一问题上的无力源自其对以色列这个犹太国家的 态度 。本质上,吸引和排斥的辩证关系植根于作为犹太人和欧洲人的集体良知之中。像丹尼·德·鲁格蒙在1946年所说的那样,欧洲是一个痛苦而饱受折磨的记忆,人们必须承认这一点。

欧洲这个古老的大陆承受着两个和以色列有很大关系的负疚情结:殖民和犹太情结。巴勒斯坦的灾难受到这种欧洲负疚的直接影响。

    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.
