30年以后萨达特的旅程

Toledo——如果有一个人是像安德鲁·杰克逊说的那种“有勇气的人会赢得多数人的钦佩”,那么30年前,1977年11月的埃及总统萨达特就是这样一个人。他向以色列作出的和平姿态震惊了整个中东。他,像他所说的,走“到世界的尽头”(位于耶路撒冷的以色列国会),并且通过这样的举动使这个地区的政治发生了翻天覆地的变化。

从那时起,阿拉伯人的问题不再是如何消灭以色列,而是如何与它取得共存。在他戏剧性地向未来迈出的这一步中,萨达特告诉了阿拉伯的领导人一个变化中的世界的现实。

萨达特的和平姿态是在对地区力量平衡冷静的战略分析后作出的。他很清楚以色列拥有核力量,并且在1973年10月的战争中,再一次证明了它在常规战争中是无法被击败的。这是一场萨达特本人在发动时就没指望会获胜的战争。

    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

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.
