《文明、现代化、价值投资与中国》读后

拿到李录的新书,心里有些激动。我已经很久没有主动想起来要看一本投资类的书了,现在决定买一本认真研读,当然是因为李录的传奇性。

我是大概三四年前听说李录,作为31年前通缉令上的人物,如今在美国做起了投资。听说做的挺成功,却不知道有多么成功。直到我看到《穷查理宝典》的中文版里面,李录做的序言,《书中自有黄金屋》。

序言当然并不是在夸耀自己的成功,却让我看到李录在一方面投资事业已经做到了如此高度,另一方面仍然保持着传统中国读书人的特质,从未停止思考中国现代化的问题,会在现代化问题下谈孔子和儒家,谈《大学》,谈士大夫精神和五四精神。

2019年BBC睿思讲座 – 法律的扩张与政治的衰落

终于翻译完了这个系列,的主体部分,问答部分还没有完成,另外也还需要一些注释。

Commentary on Lord Sumption’s Reith Lectures

但是阶段性工作完成,可以稍微总结一下。

讲座一共五个部分,第一部分,法律帝国中的扩张(Law’s Expanding Empire),探讨在公共生活中,法律裁决越来越成为常态,留给个体选择的空间越来越小。主讲人指出,有两个原因导致这种现象:其一是人们在很多问题上寻求法律所产生的一致性;其二是对安全感的需求越来越高,导致人们主动要求立法,让渡自己的自主权。主讲人认为法律已经侵入公共和私人空间太多,对民主造成伤害。

今天,我们在Cardiff大学的新闻媒体和文化学院,坐落在一座去年9月刚刚开放的崭新建筑中,听这个探讨法律与政治关系的系列讲座的最后一次演讲。

So far, Jonathan has questioned what he calls law’s expanding empire and the mission creep of the European Convention of Human Rights. He has discussed how best democracy can accommodate political difference and has warned the UK against going down the American constitutional road. Now, he is going to offer some suggestions to try and re-energise political participation, both in our institutions and political processes. The lecture is called “Shifting the Foundations”.

ANITA ANAND: Welcome to the third of this year’s Reith Lectures with the former Supreme Court Justice Jonathan Sumption. 

欢迎来到今年睿思第三次讲座听前最高法院法官Jonathan Sumption演讲。

We are in Edinburgh’s Parliament House, a building which dates back to the 16th century. This place has long been home to the Court of Sessions, the highest court in Scotland, and here in the great hall we are dominated by a stunning stained glass window depicting the moment King James V confirmed the Court of Sessions right here in 1532. This is a place, therefore, steeped in regal and legal history, an entirely suitable setting for Jonathan Sumption to continue his series of lectures on the role of the law in our public and private life.

今天我们在爱丁堡议会大厦,始建于16世纪,这里长期以来一直是苏格兰最高法院——苏格兰高等民事法院所在地。在大厅里,令人惊叹的彩色玻璃窗俯视着我们,上面是国王詹姆斯五世于1532年在此确认高等法院的画面。因此,这饱含法律和法律历史的地方,非常适合Jonathan Sumption继续他关于法治与生活公私两面的讲座。

So far Jonathan has questioned what he calls “law’s expanding empire” and discussed how best democracy can accommodate political difference. Today he will be taking a look at human rights, in particular the role of the European Convention on Human Rights and the Strasbourg Court. The lecture is called Human Rights and Wrongs. 

迄今为止,Jonathan质疑了他所谓法律帝国的扩张,并讨论了民主应该如何容纳政治差异。今天,他将着眼于人权,特别是欧洲人权公约和斯特拉斯堡法院的角色。讲座的题目是“人权及其滥用”。

Please welcome the BBC 2019 Reith Lecturer, Jonathan Sumption.
