人民与普京

选择普京来接替俄国第一位民选总统叶利钦,我是起了作用的。由于克格勃/黑手党体制现在统治着俄国,操纵着我们的司法系统,人们都认为叶利钦希望亲自指定自己的继任者,以避免在未来遭受迫害。有人指责我们这些普京的拥戴者只顾找人继续叶利钦的改革,而不顾他和他的家庭在未来是否安全。

实际上,叶利钦是无所畏惧的,他追求的不是个人安全与否,而是自己引入俄国的民主思想能否最终实现。但我们所选择的继任者正在对这种民主思想构成威胁。

我并不否认在支持普京这件事上,自己是有责任的。我们虽然算不上密友,但曾在危急关头亲密合作,我也从未对他的真诚产生过任何怀疑。普京的一切所作所为都源自于他的信仰,但问题是他的信仰有误,因为他认定只有单一权力的统治才能给俄国带来繁荣。这个严重的失误正在把俄国引向政治毁灭的边缘。

    The Rape of India’s Soul

    Jayati Ghosh

    India’s rapid descent into xenophobia, violence, and irrationality has an important economic dimension, but it takes politicians to channel these emotions into nationalism, and to embolden the nationalists to commit violence. Now that the BJP has done so, is it able – or willing – to exorcise the many demons it has unleashed?
