乌克兰的战争

旧的公理真是千真万确:坚定的意志能帮我们成功,毫不动摇的决心能让我们度过难关。正在为维护乌克兰民主英勇奋斗的我们抱定了这样的信念,现在这一点比以往任何时候都更重要。这是因为身着乌克兰制服的俄罗斯军队已经进入了我们边境,因为乌克兰士兵拒绝执行命令,镇压那些捍卫民主的示威群众。我们需要与邻国和全世界爱好自由的人们团结一致,才能确保我们的民主之梦能够和平地实现。

争取尤申科胜利、成为乌克兰新总统的斗争不是我们曾经期望的,尤申科是上周日总统大选中真正的获胜者。尽管如此,我们却不得不为自由而战,我们既不缺乏勇气,也不缺乏决心。

今后的日日夜夜会难关密布,俄国军队的秘密介入更使局势变得凶险万分。亚努科维奇总理的军队愚蠢地挤满了投票站,选举委员会受到了近乎荒谬的威胁。而后他们想迫使乌克兰人吞下这枚苦果-威胁要禁止公众集会、停止发放签证、压制电视上的任何抗议声音。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
