イスラム教が放棄したルネサンス

子供が円になって座るゲームがある。誰かが隣の子供に何かを伝え、その子供が情報を次の子供に伝え、それが円を一周するのである。最後の子供が最初の子供に情報を伝える頃には、それは最初の情報とはまったく異なるものになっている。

イスラム教内でも同様のことが起きているようである。イスラム教の教祖、マホメットは、唯一無二の宗教をもたらした。しかし今日では、イスラム教を起源とする約 1,000 の宗教が存在する。

さまざまな解釈により分離され、今やイスラム教はかつて世界において果たしていた役割を果たしておらず、かわりに弱体化し迫害されている。シーア派とスンニ派の対立の根は深く、各派とも互いの信者を背教者、「kafir」と糾弾する。相手の宗教がイスラム教ではなく、その信者はイスラム教徒ではないという信念が、何百万人もの人が命を落とし、また死に続けている宗教内戦争を下支えしてきた。

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.
