克里姆林宫的戈培尔

莫斯科——苏俄时代,人人都知道自己受到监视。任何偏离官方认可标准的行为都将引起怀疑,并且极有可能遭到惩罚。苏维埃国家几乎与一切事物作战——外国间谍、阶级敌人、穿着牛仔裤或演奏爵士乐的普通人。怀疑与敌意、而非马列主义思想,主导着苏俄政权。

自从20世纪80年代初公开化的第一缕曙光照进俄罗斯后,人们从未像现在这样如此近距离接触那样的黑暗时代。当务之急再次变成保护社会免遭国内外敌人的威胁。事实上,永远保持警惕的民族精神是维持弗拉基米尔·普京总统超高民众支持率的核心所在。而在创造必要的公众氛围方面没有人的作用比弗拉季斯拉夫·苏尔科夫更重要。

曾在2011到2013年间任职副总理的苏尔科夫曾经当过普京办公厅的主任。他目前的正式身份是普京的外交事务顾问,但实际是普京政权的首席宣传员。是他首先在俄罗斯引入了“管理民主”的概念,并主导了格鲁吉亚阿布哈兹和南奥塞梯的分裂。不久前,他再次主导俄罗斯入侵乌克兰和吞并克里米亚,掀起了为上述行动赢得几乎普遍公众支持的狂热的媒体宣传。

    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.
