多元文化主义的文化矛盾

斯德哥尔摩——国家支持的多元文化主义已经垮台了。 继德国总理默克尔和法国总统萨科奇宣布放弃多元文化主义之后,英国首相大卫·卡梅伦内容相似的声明宣告欧洲社会这一页已经翻过去了。 但实际情况果真如此吗?

卡梅伦对多元文化主义的诘责可谓直言不讳。“坦率地讲”,他说,“我们需要减少近年来的被动忍耐,构建更为积极有力的自由主义。” 他所批评的不是种族和文化的多元性,而是对不同社会团体适用不同道德标准的“国家多元文化主义”。 比方说卡梅伦宣布,今后不支持女性权利、捍卫言论自由或促进种族融合的穆斯林团体将失去一切政府资助。

在欧洲垮台的不仅是官方支持的多元文化主义,欧洲民间普遍认同的多元文化主义命运也并未好到哪去。 全世界最自由国家之一的瑞典近来激进主义思潮也有所抬头,恐怕可以作为一个恰当的实例。

    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.
