马来西亚的伊斯兰化

发自新加坡——如今在马来西亚的政治气候中,已经很难去分辨出谁是伊斯兰激进分子,谁是伊斯兰温和派了。无论官方是如何吹嘘马来西亚的多民族分布和多元文化,伊斯兰教却早已和政府融为一体了。

近20年以来,执政的马来民族统一机构(简称UMNO,也称巫统)政府投资了大量公共资源用于建设伊斯兰教机构。而政府的最初意图原本是希望把要求实行极端伊斯兰式管治的激进派诉求安抚下来.然而随着时间的推移,巫统试图压制批评声音的努力却导致了整个国家的过分伊斯兰化。

巫统已经在马来西亚国内启用了伊斯兰教法、宗教法庭以及大规模伊斯兰官僚机构,而这一整套系统已经开始自行运转起来。获得通过的伊斯兰教法数量在近10年时间里整整翻了四倍。位居伊朗和沙特阿拉伯之后,马来西亚的伊斯兰法庭体系或许是整个穆斯林世界里最庞大的,而与其伴生的官僚体制不仅庞大,甚至比国家议会更有发言权。

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic. 

    From enabling the rise of Donald Trump to hacking the telephone of a murdered British schoolgirl, Murdoch’s media empire has staked its success on stoking populist rage.

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession. But, because the world economy has changed dramatically since then, central bankers have started to miss the monetary-policy forest for the trees.
