政治进化

世界各地的人们都要求建立新权力关系——寻求更大自治权与更多尊重。新知识、新观念和各种可能性已使得我们的身份定位更为多样化,更具可变性,且不再受制于命运,这正反映了当前时代的特征。但与此同时,信息社会和全球化造就了一个愈来愈不安全的世界,在这个环境中,我们不得不承担难以为日常政治下定义的风险性。

作为一名政党领导人,如今我的主要观点就是予以个人更多权力。传统政党领导人会对支持者说,“你们可以信任我。”而我认为,在将来只有相信公民的领导人才能取得政治进步。这是一种新型关系。

我领导的泛希腊社会主义运动党(PASOK)已经开始从实践层面上来仔细思考我们究竟要从政治中获取什么并如何以一种尊重人们生活的方式获取。我们从上层开始改革,以示我党开诚布公乐于接受更多的改变。对于不同的观点意见,我们必须突出强调而不再是藏头露尾,应当视其他政党为提供多样化意见的智囊团和工作室,而非“战争总部”。

    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’s Failed Campaign of Lies

    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.
