滥用历史和伊朗的核武器

特拉维夫——沉浸在悲剧历史中的犹太人大多对过去抱有一种虔诚的态度。 但如果不能谨慎对待过去,就有可能与未来为敌,扭曲我们对当前面临挑战的恰当解读。 以色列领导人坚持将大屠杀时毁灭欧洲犹太人与拥有核武器的伊朗给犹太国家造成的威胁相提并论无疑就是一个实例。

今年耶路撒冷的大屠杀纪念日又一次见证了以色列领导人争先恐后地迎合伊朗意图问题上悲观颓丧的民族心理和在公众中蔓延的歇斯底里情绪。

西蒙·佩雷斯总统的态度有别于本雅明·内塔尼亚胡总理,他对攻击伊朗核设施所起的作用持怀疑态度,甚至谈到以色列面临“被消灭的威胁”。 就连一向以冷静理性著称的国防部长埃胡德·巴拉克也选择以华沙犹太区起义领袖莫迪凯·阿涅莱维奇名字命名的莫迪凯农场来告诫世界舆论,“以伊朗总统为首的大屠杀的否认者鼓吹消灭犹太人。”

    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.
