伊斯兰面目的欧洲政治?

伦敦—唐纳德·特朗普(Donald Trump)扬言要禁止穆斯林进入美国,这引起了我的两位青年朋友的对话:“如果要在穆斯林移民和捍卫自由道德观之间作虎选择,”我问,“你会选哪个?”他们均否认了问题的前提。移民本身,他们认为,也许存在反动道德,但他们的孩子们生长在今天的英国、美国或欧洲大陆,会与父辈大不相同。但果真如此吗?

我的问题的重点不是伊斯兰恐怖主义,即特朗普爆发的表面目标,而是大规模穆斯林移民给我的青年朋友(以及大部分受过教育的欧洲人)视为理所当然的道德观所造成的威胁。暂且把恐怖主义放在一边,如果伊斯兰教日益对英国法律和政治形成越来越大的影响,他们难道不会担忧吗?

这可不是假设的可能性。2010年欧洲穆斯林人口,为4,410万,或总人口的6%。2011年英国穆斯林人口为270万(总人口的4.8%),而2001年只有160万。从当前移民趋势以及更重要的穆斯林高于平均值的生育率(每户人家有三个孩子,英国平均水平为1.8个),穆斯林占英国人口比重在未来几十年中必然会不断增加。

    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.
