家庭与国家政治

本周将公审的原重庆市委书记薄熙来,将以及贪污、受贿和滥用职权三罪受审。结局应该还是按政法委的指示:有期徒刑,以和原上海市委书记陈良宇有期徒刑18年,原北京市委书记陈希同有期徒刑16年接近,这三位都是中共政治局委员,党的核心,要留面子,不像级别低一级的铁道部长刘志军那样,判处死缓以杀鸡敬猴。

薄熙来的结局让我想到了家庭四分五裂的失败者李尔王,莎士比亚在剧中让一个衣衫褴褛的李尔王抱着他已亡的女儿走上了舞台,喃喃自语:“这一根羽毛还在动,她没有死!”

是的,薄熙来不会崩溃而死,薄瓜瓜也不会,薄谷开来更不会,但这家人确实已死了,只是我们还无法感受到这个家庭悲剧,因为革命和权力早己先把他们的人性泯灭了,薄谷开来亲自杀死了情人海伍德,死在薄熙来统治下的冤魂更不会少,他的打手王立军逃奔美国大使馆,就是因为明白薄熙来随时会要了他的命。

    The Brexit Surrender

    European Union leaders meeting in Brussels have given the go-ahead to talks with Britain on post-Brexit trade relations.

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic. 

    From enabling the rise of Donald Trump to hacking the telephone of a murdered British schoolgirl, Murdoch’s media empire has staked its success on stoking populist rage.

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession. But, because the world economy has changed dramatically since then, central bankers have started to miss the monetary-policy forest for the trees.

  5. Harvard’s Jeffrey Frankel Measures the GOP’s Tax Plan

    Jeffrey Frankel, a professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and a former member of President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers, outlines the five criteria he uses to judge the efficacy of tax reform efforts. And in his view, the US Republicans’ most recent offering fails miserably.

    The Holy Grail of Genetic Engineering

    CRISPR-Cas – a gene-editing technique that is far more precise and efficient than any that has come before it – is poised to change the world. But ensuring that those changes are positive – helping to fight tumors and mosquito-borne illnesses, for example – will require scientists to apply the utmost caution.
