欧洲边缘的黑暗

基辅——2014年,普京找到了内心的托洛茨基。之所以这样说是因为俄总统要求乌克兰接受“不战不和”这一1918年托洛茨基曾在布列斯特和谈中用过的恶意扭曲的解决方式。普京这样做不仅将我的祖国推入“冷冲突”陷阱,致使民主和经济繁荣不再;他还亲手撕碎了欧洲三代人赖以维护和平的法律和规则。

千万不要相信乌克兰、俄罗斯和克里姆林支持的东部城市顿涅茨克和卢甘斯克的武装分子代表9月达成的 明斯克协议标志着乌克兰或者欧洲恢复正常的开始。虽然协议条款规定以三年为限,但乌克兰政府实际放弃了对顿巴斯地区的控制权,并将该地区交给由俄罗斯雇佣的分离主义分子。但这场境外输入的混合战争——还有俄罗斯对乌克兰的瓜分——却还远远没有结束。

相反,明斯克协议仅仅标志着普京将乌克兰重新变为属国、掌握乌克兰与邻国国际关系否决权的初步计划的终结。除非世界迫使普京为其帝国主义野心付出俄罗斯民众拒绝承受的代价,否则他将继续阻挠乌克兰在欧洲的未来,竭力掏空我们的民主并让乌克兰成为克里姆林的传声筒。

    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.
