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。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
