Il grande declino. Come crollano le istituzioni e muoiono le by Niall Ferguson

By Niall Ferguson

Il declino dell'Occidente sembra ormai according to molti un «dato di fatto», tanto evidente quanto ineluttabile; in realtà, nessuno ha ancora spiegato in modo convincente perché quei paesi che hanno raggiunto un altissimo grado di sviluppo civile, economico, politico e culturale si stiano avvitando in una spirale recessiva, i cui effetti sono sotto gli occhi di tutti: rallentamento della crescita, deficit di bilancio, invecchiamento della popolazione, comportamenti antisociali. Ma che cos¿è che non va nella civiltà occidentale? Ciò che non va, sostiene Niall Ferguson, sono proprio quelli che una volta erano i quattro pilastri delle società dell'Europa occidentale e dell'America del Nord - il governo rappresentativo, il libero mercato, il governo della legge e los angeles società civile - e che a partire dal XVI secolo sono stati il vero volano dell'espansione e dell'egemonia mondiale dell'Occidente, intaccati oggi da meccanismi degenerativi che li stanno sgretolando. Le nostre democrazie hanno rotto il patto fra le generazioni, scaricando il peso maggiore della crisi su figli e nipoti. I nostri mercati sono regolati da norme sempre più complesse che complicano inutilmente los angeles situazione invece di semplificarla. Dal governo della legge siamo passati, in keeping with eccesso di burocrazia, al «governo dei legulei». E l. a. società civile, un pace vivacissima grazie alla libera iniziativa dei cittadini, è degenerata in società incivile, in cui ognuno pensa che i problemi degli altri non lo riguardino e aspetta pigramente che sia lo Stato a trovare los angeles soluzione a tutto. Da questa impietosa analisi, che è anche un uniqueness e polemico atto d'accusa nei confronti delle classi dirigenti europee e americane che in step with negligenza e acquiescenza stanno dilapidando il proprio patrimonio di civiltà, Ferguson trae l. a. convinzione che solo una coraggiosa serie di riforme radicali, promosse da una politica che non badi solo al tornaconto elettorale, può invertire il processo di degenerazione in atto e riportare le istituzioni a funzionare in base ai princìpi e alle regole di una società veramente libera.

Moliere's Plays: The Miser: In Contemporary American English by Jean-Baptiste Moliere, Marciano Guerrero, MaryMarc

By Jean-Baptiste Moliere, Marciano Guerrero, MaryMarc Translations

In the course of the internal springs of Harpagon —a paragon of the miser and the avaricious funds lender— Moliere delves into the psychology of this repulsive literary prototype. Balzac persevered the examine of such characters; in particular in his novel Gobseck. but, this characters turns out to seem in all societies: Shakespeare’s Shylock, and Dickens’ Scrooge in England, and Perez Galdos’s Torquemada in Spain.

When Valere publicizes a maxim —found in Cicero’s treatise on rhetoric, advert Herennium— “frugality may still reign within the food which one bargains; and that based on the asserting of an historic, we needs to devour to stay, and never stay to eat,” Harpagon is all ears and rejoices in its repetition, and needs to devote it to memory.

Harpagon, regardless of all his avaricious sins, by no means loses his ardour for funds, discovering redemption within the bizarre love he exhibits for his relations. So, in Moliere’s play he isn’t the heartless and harsh creature, yet a personality that unearths his personal humanity within the love of his daughter.
