特奥·范霍赫死后的荷兰

电影导演特奥·范霍赫(Theo van Gogh)被杀及清真寺、教堂和伊斯兰学校随后发生的纵火事件上周在荷兰家庭中引起的反思比过去20年里的更多、更深刻。旧的荷兰似乎已经离我们远去,并且永远不会回来。

目前的当务之急是把荷兰人团结在一起,这需要移民和荷兰本国人的共同努力。只要温和派能生存下去,新的荷兰就会从过去几周的腥风血雨中再次诞生。

很多人都说荷兰各种移民团体缺乏通过诚实的自我批评和评价自我"纯洁"的能力。很多人都认可这种说法,也愿意加以改变。对多元文化主义的暧昧态度使得荷兰籍摩洛哥人长久固守着保守作风,也让荷兰籍土耳其人一直避开公众的视线。移民人群中,灵魂的反省与义务感和归属感息息相关,而现实生活中这两种情感最终归结为把自己作为社会的一员,愿意为身处其中的城市、社区和街道负起责任。

    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 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.
