窥觑性爱

谢赫·希拉里(Sheik Hilaly)是一位住在悉尼的穆斯林传教士,不久前他公开宣称女人自身不够庄重会诱发强奸,因为放荡的女人就像裸露的鲜肉那样招人窥觑。因为这些言论,他登上了澳大利亚各大报纸的头版头条。更令人遗憾的是,他暗示是由于女人的不庄重导致了2000年悉尼的一系列群奸案件,这些案件的肇事者辩护说因为受害者穿着西方服饰,导致他们认为可以与之性交。

尽管当地穆斯林领袖批评了希拉里的观点,但这一事件再次引起了民众对“东正教”性观念的质疑,也引起了怎样才能使“东正教”性观念符合西方主流标准的探讨。

    The global economy today is dominated by three major players – China, the EU, and the US – with roughly equal trading volumes and limited incentive to fight for the rules-based global trading system. With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.

    A Better British Story

    Despite all of the doom and gloom over the United Kingdom's impending withdrawal from the European Union, key manufacturing indicators are at their highest levels in four years, and the mood for investment may be improving.
