以色列的中间派胜利

耶路撒冷-以色列的选举是中间主义和国民意见的胜利。事实上,这不仅是解释票数多寡的钥匙,也是理解以色列公众舆论、下届政府及其政策的关键。

源于经验,大多数以色列人都已经发展出一套融合了传统左翼和右翼思想的世界观。一方面,他们想在建立巴勒斯坦国的基础上与巴勒斯坦人达成全面的政治解决方案,以此交换真正的持久和平。另一方面,他们知道没有巴勒斯坦领袖足以强硬或温和到促成此事发生。

左翼和右翼都已经被证明是错误的了。左翼做出大幅度退让,为了和平甘冒巨险。但是它没有可靠方法来与伊朗,叙利亚,哈马斯和黎巴嫩真主党等激进势力达成一致,所有这些势力都谋求摧毁以色列。巴勒斯坦民族权力机构(PA)没有这么极端,但是它的领导力量薄弱,没有控制加沙,而且仍然充斥着了强硬原素。

    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.

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.
