实际司法行动

纽约——巴拉克·奥巴马已经承诺派遣一支由100名美国武装军事人员组成的小组进入乌干达,这支武装部队的任务是迫使被称为“圣主抵抗军”的残忍的叛乱集团首领、臭名昭著的战犯约瑟夫·康尼就范并将其绳之以法。

奥巴马的外交政策经常被指被动或缺乏计划。但最近的这次干涉行动体现了他在2009年诺贝尔奖颁奖仪式讲话中谈到的学说。“这些践踏规则的政权必需承担责任,”他们“曾经宣誓要履行保护和捍卫职责”的首领也是一样。实践这一原则可能必需要借助武力,因为“世界各国必需记住确保二战后世界稳定的不仅仅是国际机构。”

至少在反对康尼的提案问题上奥巴马可以期望得到国内两党的支持:在国会两院民主和共和党的共同支持下,要求美国对圣主抵抗军采取行动的议案于2010年5月被签署为法律。

    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.
