土耳其的阶级斗争

纽约——人们对目前土耳其城市涌动的反政府示威浪潮的一种解读是这是一次反对政治化伊斯兰教的大规模抗议活动。最初从反对政府将伊斯坦布尔市中心一座小公园拆毁改建俗气购物中心开始的群众集会活动迅速演变为一场价值观的碰撞。

表面上看,冲突似乎代表了现代土耳其世俗与宗教、民主与专制两种截然不同的价值观。有人把土耳其抗议运动与华尔街占领运动相提并论。某些观察家甚至提出了“土耳其之春”的说法。

显然,很多土耳其民众,尤其是大城市民众,对总理雷杰普·塔伊普·埃尔多安愈加独裁的作风、他对媒体的严格控制、他对修建宏伟清真寺的偏好、他对酒精饮品的限制、他对持不同政见者的逮捕和对当前示威活动做出的暴力反应都非常厌恶。人们担心伊斯兰教法将取代现有的世俗法律,伊斯兰教将毁坏后奥斯曼时期凯末尔·阿塔图尔克推动土耳其现代化所取得的成果。

    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.
