上帝的勇士的数量正在培增

芝加哥 - 时间对于中东的和平使者们并不有利。即使是彻底的乐观主义者们也准备放弃了。以色列和巴勒斯坦之间的冲突被双方的极端宗教势力弄得乌云笼罩并复杂喧嚣。这些宗教团体不准备进行任何妥协,并视各自的政治权利为崇高神圣。


这样的形势,在短期内阻碍了的和平解决,在长期内使政治解决的可能性变得越来越小。和平比以往任何时候都犹如空中楼阁遥不可及。

在过去25年里,该地区各派互相竞争的利益集团都争相把宗教当作决定国内政策的主要考量标准。在许多阿拉伯国家,原教旨主义的复活,既影响重大,又令人不安。真主党在黎巴嫩已经成了一支强大的力量;伊拉克从中东地区最无宗教色彩的国家之一变成了一个神权好战的国家;而哈马斯在巴勒斯坦风起云涌,削弱了马哈茂德·阿巴斯总统的威望。

    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.
