另一个欧洲的1968

华沙—在巴黎、西柏林、伦敦和罗马,1968年春天最重要的景象就是学生抗议反对越南战争。在华沙,学生们也在抗议,但其原因却与他们西方的同侪不同。年轻的波兰人并没有走上华沙街头高呼“胡、胡、胡志明”以支持越共,而是去抗议令人窒息的共产主义统治,捍卫他们国家的自由和文化。

年轻的波兰人没有高喊胡(志明)的名字,而是将鲜花献到Adam Mickiewicz的纪念碑前。他是十九世纪的一位诗人,他创作的歌颂自由斗争的戏剧 Forefathers Eve 在最近被宣布为颠覆和反苏维埃的,并被禁止在华沙国家剧院演出。

这只是四十年前那个反叛的春天里,东、西欧学生之间的一些不同之处。虽然这是同一代人所掀起的两股叛逆潮流,并都采用了游行和静坐示威的形式,但在铁幕两边的学生们的叛逆行为却是异大于同。

    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.
