齐达内的悲剧

上帝想要毁了某个人,就给他愿望。齐达内现在可能就在思考这一古老的希腊智慧之言。齐达内已经宣布将在世界杯赛后结束他的职业生涯,并满足了他的愿望。法国队如履薄冰地通过了小组赛,齐达内如日中天,并把法国队带到了第二次世界杯冠军的边上。但是,他不仅没有在胜利或起立鼓掌中结束他的事业,反而由于头顶意大利球员而被罚出了决赛场。足球历史上还很少有这样的悲剧时刻。

无论是什么挑衅导致了齐达内的行为(可能是种族言论),他的暴力行为被全世界所看到,玷污了他的形象。这一难过的矛盾是,尽管世界都在了解和敬仰他作为一个人的传奇般的善良,现在,它将由于一次侵犯行为而令人永志难忘。

确实,齐达内作为世界上最普及最受欢迎的体育运动的象征性的冠军地位并无法完全解释人们为何对他如此执谜。他的人格特征与他在场上的天才和技术成就在建立起万众爱戴上一样重要。

    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.

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.
