1968年革命令人难以捉摸的影响

 “丹尼,你已经取得了很大的成功。但是不要让你自己被那些很久以前遗留下来的势力所操纵,因为它们会将你所创造的一切彻底摧毁。”40年后,当时还是巴黎第十大学助理教授的让·鲍德里亚在1968年3月22日所说的一番话仍然很有现实意义。

这样说也许会让我的支持者和那些难以抗拒“革命”诱惑的人大失所望,但我并不是据说发生在1968年的那场革命的领袖。忘了它吧:“68”年革命已经结束——它已经被鹅卵石彻底地掩埋,即使那些石头曾经创造过历史,带来过我们社会的巨大变革,68年革命已经结束的事实也根本无法改变。

我的说法开始时可能显得有些莫名其妙。但在接受《新观察家》杂志记者让-保罗·萨特采访时我明确表示,我只不过是那次反抗运动的传声筒。因此,“68”年革命标志着革命神话的彻底结束——这对从20世纪70年代到现在的解放运动来讲是个福音。归根结底,20世纪60年代是一个以一系列相互联系的反抗运动为特征的世界,而“68”年革命则是全球首次通过广播和电视进行实况转播的反抗运动。

    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.

    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.
