罗曼·波兰斯基的美国梦

纽约——

目前,瑞士当局将著名电影导演罗曼•波兰斯基逮捕,波兰斯基是波兰籍法国人,此次被捕源于三十年前对他的通缉令。那么,瑞士当局的动机是什么呢?1977年,波兰斯基在洛杉矶被指控强奸了一名13岁的少女,随后,他的罪名减轻为与未成年少女非法发生性关系。他在加州监狱服刑42天之后,当听说当时的法官劳伦斯·里特班德将要对其重判,于是,在判决宣布之前,波兰斯基于1978年逃离了美国。

从那以后,本案的受害者萨曼莎·吉莫尔已公开表示对他的谅解,希望撤回指控。如此看来,再继续这个案子和受害人的权力和感情都已经没有什么关系。而对于已经是两个孩子的父亲波兰斯基而言,重复犯罪的可能性似乎也不存在。

    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.
