尼日利亚绑架者的意识形态

伦敦—240多名尼日利亚女孩被绑架事件震惊了全球。但不幸的是,这决非尼日利亚的个别案例。事实上,尼日利亚的烦恼是许多非洲国家共同的烦恼,而绑架背后的动机则来自一种全球性的意识形态。

这一意识形态基于一种扭曲的错误宗教观。它在全球正式和非正式学校中教授。当然,绑架的实施者——博科圣地(Boko Haram)领袖丧心病狂的话只是这一意识形态最极端的代表。但是,除非我们能够正本清源,否则这一意识形态将继续威胁全世界数百万年轻人的生命机遇,破坏我们的安全。

在整个撒哈拉以南非洲,这一问题现在相当普遍。马里、乍得、尼日尔、中非共和国、索马里、肯尼亚甚至埃塞俄比亚都饱受极端主义蔓延的困扰或面临尖锐的焦虑。许多其他国家更是将极端主义视为唯一最重要的挑战。

    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.

    The Hungarian Government’s Failed Campaign of Lies

    The Hungarian government has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees. 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.
