被告席上的红色高棉

从卢旺达到塞尔维亚再到塞拉利昂,现在许多战争罪的嫌疑犯都开始接受审判。虽然还有一些人在通缉之中,但仍有希望将他们绳之以法。然而对于上世纪70年代在柬埔寨制造有计划的种族大屠杀的人,情况却完全不同。他们仍然逍遥法外,没有受到通缉。

在红色高棉统治下的1975至79年,柬埔寨四分之一的人口(即200万人)或被处决,或死于饥饿和疾病。然而对于这人类历史上最不可饶恕的罪行之一却从未有过真正的审判,没有过真相调查,也没有过官方的承认。

其结果是许多1979年以后出生的柬埔寨人并不了解这些暴行所涉及的范围和严重程度。而同时,幸存者的痛苦和悲伤-几乎他们所有人都失去了亲人-也没有得到抚恤。

    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.
