加拿大保守党党领今天辞职,据说并不是因为败选,而是因为挪用公款给孩子付私校学费。 :BloodyK:

我倒,这都是些什么人啊。我觉得小土豆就够践踏我对政治人物的底线了,这个更加匪夷所思。对加拿大前途好绝望。

没底线地说:丑行被揭露后,还顾及些大家的脸面还肯辞职的政治人物,已经挺有底线了。。。

对。每次小美上来抱怨的时候,我都觉得很难产生同情啊,如同吃不上稀饭的人看吃不上蛋糕的人。说真的挪用公款给孩子上私校算个啥?美国议员 Duncan Hunter 挪用公款搞了好几个婚外情!被控告了之后还连任选上了,最近差点要进监狱才被迫辞职 ... 明年。不过这些跟卖国贼和跪舔卖国贼的政客一比都是圣人级别的。

嗯,同样适用于政党。和能够支持川普的美国共和党相比,闹翻天的加拿大保守党更有底线。

今天在 Sixth and I 的网站上打算给家属买票去看他的偶像 Paul Krugman,意外发现他们最近帮 The Atlantic 杂志录制了一期节目 "How to Stop a Civil War" (with writers Yoni Appelbaum, Caitlin Flanagan, and Adam Serwer). 当然主要内容都发表在杂志上了。

呵呵呵呵。I am NOT ALONE! :rabbit001:

(我听了一点点,not particularly interesting to me.)

I don't know how to stop a civil war. I doubt a civil war can be stopped, much less by the intelligentia. 但是,最近读了一些历史之后,我的感受是,一个社会内部的长期中心矛盾,最后常常是被外界或旁枝的力量解决的,而非东风压倒西风地解决。例如,中国历史上持久 intractable 的矛盾之一是皇帝、宦官、文官集团三部分的冲突和牵制,但最后解决掉这个问题的世界政治形态的变化导致王权的废除。另一个持久的矛盾是农业大国的管理成本太高,这个冲突还没解决,反而因为现代国家的管理成本继续上升而解决无望。

美国的持续性内部矛盾之一,one could argue,是 racial conflict,由于黑奴制度而留下的毒瘤。I don't know how it's going to get resolved. 但是很明显 civil war 并不能完全解决这个冲突(我把六十年代的动荡也看作是一场 civil war),暴力输出的帝国殖民主义也不能完全解决这个冲突。真正给社会带来本质性变化的因素几乎总是技术(包括战争技术)的飞跃与大环境的巨变(environmental disasters?),而“打一仗”本身不能。

(神奇的是,据我所知,这个观察和结论最早来自马胖大叔!The underlying intractable conflict between the North and the South is resolved by the sweeping invasion of the Others, not by either side winning the war. 我又神奇地发现,Westeros 上一次统一也不是内战解决的,而是战争技术的飞跃,即龙的出现。胖大叔钻研历史模仿历史,果然是非常的真实啊。死胖子坏胖子怎么还不写完!)

我真是不知道说啥好。CBC五年前播出home alone 2的时候,剪掉了8分钟好在两小时内播出还能插广告,包括三秒钟川皇扮演的路人。当时土豆也不是总理川皇也不是总统。川皇的狗腿子们以及川皇自己不知从哪里翻出来这事马上开始上纲上线各种攻击。真遗憾做为一个国家有恶邻也不能搬家。

其实川皇上台后我也没吃啥实际的亏,留在美国的退休账户表现相当好,每次看一眼都:啥?又涨了这么多?十年翻了一番有余主要靠过去这三年的涨幅。下次再痛心疾首数落铁锈带人民为意识形态vote against ones own interest 的时候,也许不应该太理直气壮。

想开点,美国不负道德责任也许短期让世界上很多国家人民多受了苦难,但是长期来看,超级大国放弃了世界霸权,自毁外交实力,也许不是坏事,是新秩序形成的必要阶段。

今天读了这篇一月初的纽约客文章,颇有点营养(阳光)。
The Ultra-Wealthy Who Argue That They Should Be Paying Higher Taxes
One graphic ranked wealthy countries in terms of the likelihood that a child born into the lowest economic quartile would move into the top quartile; the U.S. was second to last, ahead of only China.
Image

文章主要焦点是Abigail Disney, 她在结尾的一段话挺有意思的。
She recalled a conversation that she’d had, in 2013, with David Keene, who was the president of the National Rifle Association from 2011 to 2013. Disney had asked him what he was proudest of. He told her, “We flipped the script on guns in America.” She took heart in the simplicity of his answer: if the script could be flipped one way, then surely it could be flipped back. She said that groups like the Patriotic Millionaires, and people like Erica Payne and Chuck Collins, “are tiny little ants in this fight” in terms of their total resources. But the other side is selling “a load of bullshit,” she said. “If what you’re selling is bullshit, then you need a shovel, and if what you’re selling is truth you really only need a teaspoon.”
