Will These Youngsters Come A Cropper?   

Cache   

West Ham have a wealth of young talent at the club, a vital essential for any team other than the very rich in order to survive in the top flights of football, so we thought we'd take a look at the new generation of players to emerge. When it comes to young promising goal keepers the Irons are spoiled for choice with Nathan Trott and Joseph Anang on the books as well as two youth internationals in the U-18's with Daniel Jinady and Serinne Sanneh, there is also the 17 year old Hungarian Krisztian Hegyi, who was wanted by Manchester United and Real Madrid, he has trained with the first team and has played with the U-23's this season.

Scottish youth international Harrison Ashby has played well for the U-18's and has also played for the U-23's a few times this season, he made his U-23's debut earlier this season as an emergency centre back after an injury crisis, helping the team to a clean sheet .

Centre half Jamal Baptiste became the 2nd youngest Hammers U-23 player in history earlier this season when he made his debut in a Premier League International Cup win over Valencia two months ahead of his 16th birthday. His England U-17 debut followed not long after and he has been a regular in U-23s match squads ever since making the step up, he is very highly rated at the London Stadium and there are hopes the future will see him develop in to a top player.

Goncalo Cardoso was signed from Boavista last summer for more than £1million, big things are expected of the Portuguese youngster, who has been a regular for his country across all age groups. He is essentially a centre back but can also play at left back which he has done on a few occasions this season for the U- 23's.

Marauding left back Sam Caiger has finally returned after nearly two years out through injury and has scored a couple of goals in a win over Spurs, he is well thought of at Chadwell Heath.

Midfielder Conor Coventry recently signed a new contract extension until 2023 before being sent out on loan to Lincoln City, Coventry made his first team debut against Macclesfield Town last season in the Carabao Cup and took over the U-23's captaincy after Moses Makasi was sold, he’s continued to progress and is another one for the future.

Creative midfielder Bernardo Rosa won the Premier League 2 Player of the Month nomination for November having made the move up to U-23 level from the U-18s. The Brazilian, who began his career at Vasco de Gama in his homeland before making the move to London in his early teenage years has really impressed the U-23 bosses.

Nathan Holland is a winger who has been on loan this season at Oxford United, scoring in an FA Cup replay against Newcastle United, before his loan was cut short after suffering a hamstring injury. Unfortunately Injuries have meant his career has been sporadic since signing from Everton but that hasn't stopped him from being the U-23's top scorer this season having scored 11 times in the PL2 before he was loaned out for his League One experience.

Amadou Diallo was immediately handed his first professional contract at the club signing on the dotted line with his boyhood club on his 17th birthday. Diallo was in fact just 14 when he made his debut for the club's U-18s against Arsenal in 2017 under former coach Jack Collison and last season he broke into the U-23's setup, scoring two goals in his first three appearances at that level and has gone from strength to strength, well above his age range,

Striker Xande Silva suffered serious bowel obstruction that required emergency surgery last summer which set him back a bit, but he has scored three times since his return this season. In 2019-20, the Portuguese hitman was stunning scoring seven goals in his first six games and making a first team debut at Burnley, he made his senior full debut in the FA Cup win over Birmingham.

Mipo Odubeko has only been at the club for three months having been sniped from Manchester United, but the striker has made a big impact already, he has scored 35 goals for the Iron’s academy last season and has seven goals in six games for the U-18s since signing. He also scored with his very first touch off the bench on his under-23s debut earlier this year as well.

Mesaque Dju joined the club at the end of the January transfer window during the 2018-19 season from Portuguese side Benfica, the youngster joined on a three and a half year deal and joins fellow countryman Xande Silva in the Club's U-23 squad.

These aren't the only youngsters on the horizon, ironically it was the 'pulling power' of ex-manager Manuel Pellegrini that attracted many of the youngsters and the approval of their signatures by their parents and advisers, strength through youth sounds a bit Hitleresque, but realistically it is the only way a club like West Ham can possibly survive and progress in the top flight, until and when the current owners sellup to buyers with deep pockets, but don't hold your breath! - Ed

Phạm Phú Khải (VOA Blog): Mẹ Nấm, nước Mỹ, quyền có ý kiến và quyền phê bình   

Cache   
Mẹ Nấm và TT Donald Trump tại Tòa Bạch Ốc, 7 tháng 11, 2019. (Hình: Facebook Nguyen Ngoc Nhu Quynh)

Vào ngày 23 tháng Ba, Nguyễn Ngọc Như Quỳnh (NNNQ), tức Mẹ Nấm, viết một bài trên trang Facebook của mình, với tựa “Cuộc tranh luận về thuốc điều trị sốt rét sẽ đi đến đâu?”. Trong bài này, NNNQ bày tỏ sự quan tâm khi một số người Việt, trong cũng như ngoài Việt Nam, xem thuốc điều trị sốt rét có thể chữa Covid-19. NNNQ biện luận rằng cần phải tìm hiểu kỹ lưỡng vì tác hại của thuốc này là rất lớn. Bài viết gây nhiều tranh cãi và thu hút được sựquan tâm của nhiều người. Cho đến lúc viết bài này (28 tháng Ba) thì đã có 697 người thích, 992 còm, và 745 chia sẻ (share).

Xin mở ngoặc một chút ở đây. Tôi không biết NNNQ. Nhưng tôi có dịp xem phim Mẹ Vắng Nhà do VOICE thực hiện. Tôi đã viết một bài về đề tài này. Chưa đầy ba tháng sau bài này, nghe tin NNNQ được trả tự do và đang trên đường bay sang Mỹ vào ngày 17 tháng 10 năm 2018, tôi rất mừng cho NNNQ, bà Nguyễn Thị Tuyết Lan, và hai con của cô. Tôi luôn cảm phục tinh thần dấn thân, quyết tâm và can trường của những người như NNNQ. Không phải ai cũng làm được. Đó là một cái giá đắt phải trả, không chỉ riêng NNNQ mà còn bao nhiêu người khác. Mẹ cô và hai con cô không có tội tình gì mà cũng bị liên lụy. Điều đó rất bất công. Chỉ có một xã hội cộng sản và độc tài mới đối xử công dân của mình như thế! (*)

Trở lại status của NNNQ về đề tài thuốc sốt rét, thì lý do tại sao nó gây nhiều tranh cãi gây gắt đến thế?

Hẳn nhiên có rất nhiều lý do mà người ta ủng hộ hoặc chống đối status này. Nhưng tôi xin tóm gọn vào ba điều sau đây, theo nhận xét riêng của tôi: đụng chạm đến ông Trump, đến một sốngười Việt tại Mỹ, và vì có những nhận xét hơi vội vàng.

Một, là vì đụng chạm đến Tổng thống Donald Trump. Hiện tại có một số người ủng hộ ông Trump một cách cuồng nhiệt, và sẵn sàng phản ứng một cách nhiệt thành, đối với những ai phê bình chỉ trích ông. Đi xa hơn, đã có người thực hiện một thỉnh nguyện thư yêu cầu trục xuất NNNQ vì cô đã phê bình tổng thống, nói ông không giữ lời hứa và hay quên v.v… Cho đến nay (thời điểm viết bài này) đã có hơn 10 ngàn người ký thỉnh nguyện thư này. Cho dù có đến 100 ngàn chữ ký trong vòng 30 ngày đi nữa, thỉnh nguyện có được cứu xét không, và kết quả ra sao, là chuyện khác. Công tâm mà nói thì những điều NNNQ bày tỏ trong các status vừa qua, tuy có phần phê bình tổng thống Mỹ, nhưng không phải là chủ đích chính của cô.

Chúng ta cần hiểu rằng NNNQ bị tù tội tại Việt Nam, bị kết án 10 năm tù, vì dám lên tiếng chống lại một chế độ độc tài với cả một hệ thống quyền lực trấn áp bằng mọi thủ đoạn đê hèn nhất. Vâng, NNNQ đã từng xác nhận những gì mình làm là sai lầm; nhưng bao nhiêu người can trường khác, Việt hay không Việt, đứng trước các thủ đoạn khủng bố trấn áp, có sự chọn lựa nào tốt hơn đâu. Kẻ vi phạm ở đây không phải là NNNQ mà là toàn hệ thống cai trị sai trái của ĐCSVN. Còn khi NNNQ được sống trong một xứ sở tự do, hiển nhiên cô không có gì để sợ, và sẽ không khuất phục trước những ngôn từ thiếu lễ độ hay những lời hăm dọa. Cho nên những phản ứng của cô, dù đúng hay sai, dù khó nghe và mất lòng, cho thấy rằng trước sau cô chỉ muốn được sống một cách tự do để bày tỏ các ý kiến của mình.

Hai, là vì đụng chạm đến một số người Việt tại Mỹ. NNNQ, vì vô tình hay cố ý, đã thiếu sự cân nhắc trong ngôn từ sử dụng, nên đã tạo nhiều hiểu lầm trong các bài của cô. Các điều này đã đụng chạm đến một số người Việt đang sống tại Mỹ. Chẳng hạn, trong status này, NNNQ dùng những từ những câu như sau:

“Từ bao giờ chữ "lãnh đạo" được dành để ám chỉ duy nhất một mình ông Trump vậy!?

Và từ bao giờ mà nước Mỹ, nơi tôn trọng các ý kiến khác biệt lại có quy định về lãnh tụ nhưvậy!?”; và

“Các anh chị ở Mỹ, status này tôi viết là dành cho các anh chị, các anh chị nên nhớ sự tôn trọng ý kiến khác biệt và tự do báo chí là hai giá trị đặc thù của Hoa Kỳ. Nó làm nên sự khác biệt của nước Mỹ.”; và

“Nước Mỹ không vĩ đại như nhiều người đang nghĩ,

Thiếu khẩu trang y tế, thiếu bộ xét nghiệm, tổng thống kêu nhân viên sử dụng lại khẩu trang, có khác gì Vũ Hán không!?

Không khác gì cả các anh chị ạ! Và đây là đại dịch, chưa có nhiều kiến thức về virus thì chúng ta dù ở đâu cũng phải vật lộn với nó hết, cho nên dù ở quốc gia nào, lời khuyên của tôi vẫn là hãy theo dõi lắng nghe lời khuyên của các chuyên gia y tế, thay vì nghe lời lãnh đạo.”

Có người đồng quan điểm với NNNQ, và có người không, được thể hiện rõ trong các “còm.” Dù đồng ý hay không, những điều NNNQ là quan điểm cá nhân của NNNQ, trong một cộng đồng Việt Nam nhỏ, trong một diễn đàn truyền thông điện tử nhỏ hơn nữa. Nên sẽ không có tác động nào đến Nhà Trắng hay toàn nước Mỹ.

Nhưng tôi hiểu rằng NNNQ đã đụng chạm đến một số người Việt tại Mỹ.

Có người nghĩ nước Mỹ đã cưu mang cô, sao cô lại “vong ơn bạc nghĩa”, chẳng hạn. Nhưng NNNQ khẳng định phê bình ông Trump, hay nói nước Mỹ không vĩ đại, chẳng hạn, là thể hiện quyền tự do ngôn luận của cô. NNNQ cho rằng nước Mỹ là nước Mỹ, một nước đa nguyên, trong đó ông Trump là tổng thống. Cô cũng khẳng định không theo đảng phái nào, chỉ nói lên quan tâm của mình trước hiện tình đại dịch chung.

Điều chúng ta cần nhớ ở đây là NNNQ chỉ đến Mỹ gần 1,5 năm qua, nên cô nhìn nước Mỹ chắc chắn khác với những người đã sống lâu, trong đó có người từng sống trên 20, 30 hoặc ngay cả40 năm. Sự gắn bó với nước Mỹ của mỗi người mỗi khác. Có thể NNNQ xem Mỹ là nước tạm dung, mà một ngày nào đó cô sẽ về lại Việt Nam chăng! Tôi không biết. Dù sao đây là phạm trù tình cảm và gắn bó có tính cách cá nhân. Tranh luận về điều này sẽ không đi đến đâu cả, và chỉ gây thêm chia rẽ. Những người xem nước Mỹ vĩ đại sẽ cảm thấy bị tổn thương bởi lời nói trên của NNNQ. Ngược lại, áp đặt tình cảm riêng tư của mình lên người khác, lên NNNQ chẳng hạn, là điều không nên.

Ngoài ra, khi dùng ngôn từ như ‘các anh chị’ trong “Các anh chị ở Mỹ, status này tôi viết là dành cho các anh chị…”, phải chăng NNNQ muốn nói với toàn người Việt tại Mỹ? Nếu như thếthì phải chăng NNNQ cho rằng người Việt tại Mỹ quên, hay không biết, rằng “sự tôn trọng ý kiến khác biệt và tự do báo chí là hai giá trị đặc thù của Hoa Kỳ?” v.v… (Xin mở ngoặc ở đây đểchia sẻ rằng nếu nghĩ tôn trọng ý kiến khác biệt và tự do báo chí là đặc thù của Mỹ, như NNNQ trình bày, thì không đúng, bởi đó cũng là điều kiện chung của các nền dân chủ cấp tiến khắp nơi, không riêng gì Mỹ.) Còn nếu NNNQ chỉ muốn nói với một thiểu số người nào đó, thì nên tìm các từ ngữ thích hợp để người đọc biết cô đang ám chỉ ai một cách rõ ràng. Một số status khác của NNNQ cũng dễ rơi vào trường hợp mà người khác đọc xong có thể hiểu lầm rằng cô cố tình vơ đũa cả nắm, mà thật ra chưa hẳn NNNQ đã có ý như thế.

Ba, là vì NNNQ đã đưa ra những nhận xét có lẽ hơi vội vàng hoặc thiếu cân nhắc. Chẳng hạn, cũng từ các trích dẫn ở status trên, thì tôi có vài chia sẻ như sau.

Tôi đồng ý rằng trong lúc này cần phải lắng nghe lời khuyên của chuyên gia y tế, chứ không nên nghe lãnh đạo chính trị trong các vấn đề chuyên về y tế. Ở Úc này, khi đụng đến lĩnh vực y tế, thì Thủ tướng Scott Morrison nhường lời liền cho Tổng Viên Y Tế (Chief Medical Officer) Brendan Murphy trong các cuộc họp báo liên quan đến Covid-19. Ông Trump thì khác. Chưa đợi ý kiến chính thức từ giới chuyên gia y tế, ông dám xác định thuốc trị sốt rét hydroxychloroquine và azithromycin cùng nhau có thể chữa trị được Covid-19. Trong khi đó bác sĩ Anthony Fauci, Giám đốc Viện Quốc gia về Bệnh Dị ứng và Truyền nhiễm, không ủng hộđiều này và khẳng định rằng “Công việc của tôi là sau cùng phải chứng minh mà không nghi ngờ gì rằng một loại thuốc không chỉ an toàn mà còn có tác dụng.”

Nhưng việc làm sạch và dùng lại khẩu trang, thì ông Trump nói chung chung, không rõ ông ám chỉ khẩu trang loại nào. Có loại tái sử dụng được, chứ không phải không. Chính bác sĩ Anthony Fauci cũng không hoàn toàn bác bỏ ý kiến này. Tất nhiên nếu có đủ hoặc dư thừa thì không cần bàn làm gì. Nhưng trong lúc thiếu thốn thì phải biết tiết kiệm. Mà thời đại hiện nay là thời đại của tái sử dụng, tái chế, trong đó có lý do tốt cho môi trường. Tuy nhiên làm sạch lại khẩu trang có bảo đảm được an toàn y tế hay không là chuyện cần phải thử nghiệm kỹ lưỡng, điều mà chưa có câu trả lời chắc chắn hiện nay.

Vì vậy nên phải tránh đi vào các cuộc tranh luận ai đúng ai sai về khẩu trang hay thuốc men chữa trị Covid-19 cho đến khi được các cơ quan thẩm quyền xác định hoặc quyết định. Đó cũng là điều mà cô NNNQ tìm cách chia sẻ trên trang Facebook của mình. Đó là ý tốt của NNNQ. Tuy nhiên, trong lúc tranh luận, và nhu cầu phải bênh vực quan điểm của mình, với kẻ bênh người chống, người ta dễ dàng đi quá xa các điểm cần tranh luận.

Tự do ngôn luận: một quyền thiêng liêng

Như đã viết trong một bài trước đây, tự do ngôn luận là nền tảng, và là thước đo đánh giá mức độ, dân chủ tại một nước nào đó.

Freedom House, tổ chức đánh giá nền dân chủ của mọi quốc gia trên toàn cầu và thực hiện báo cáo hàng năm, cũng khẳng định rằng tự do ngôn luận và bày tỏ (freedom of speech and expression) là mạch sống của dân chủ, bởi vì nó “tạo điều kiện cho cuộc tranh luận mở, xem xét đúng đắn các lợi ích và quan điểm đa dạng, và đàm phán và thỏa hiệp cần thiết cho các quyết định chính sách mang tính đồng thuận”.

Nói về tự do ngôn luận, tôi chỉ muốn tập trung đến khía cạnh phê bình, chỉ trích.

Còn nói để ca tụng tâng bốc, quảng cáo đánh bóng, hay để làm vừa lòng, những kẻ đang nắm quyền hành trong tay, thì không cần quyền tự do ngôn luận vẫn nói được. Lại còn được kẻ cầm quyền khuyến khích nữa.

Phê bình, ngược lại, là một, nếu không phải là, phần quan trọng nhất, của tự do ngôn luận. Nó thách thức mọi uy quyền, mọi quan điểm hay tiếng nói tự cho mình là sự thật duy nhất hoặc tuyệt đối. Nó thách thức độc đoán và độc tài của mọi loại quyền lực. Cho nên những nhà phê bình, trong văn học, chính trị hay nói chung mọi lĩnh vực, đều là những cái gai cần bứng trong mắt của các chế độ độc tài. Họ chỉ thật sự an toàn và, hơn nữa, được trọng dụng trong xã hội dân chủ cấp tiến.

Quyền để đưa ra các quan điểm, ý kiến khác biệt, tức phê bình, đã được ghi nhận trong điều 19 của Tuyên ngôn Quốc tế Nhân Quyền và Công ước Quốc tế về Quyền Dân sự và Chính trị (**).

Vài suy nghĩ cuối

Cũng vì các quyền này chỉ có trên văn bản, trên hiến pháp Việt Nam, chứ không hề hiện hữu trên thực tế, nên bao triệu người Việt đã bỏ nước ra đi kể từ 30 tháng Tư năm 1975.

Và hiện nay vẫn còn. Và vẫn còn bao nhiêu người tiếp tục chết vì nó.

Ở trong nước, cả cái Đảng (ĐCSVN) bao lâu nay tiếp tục đề cao ông Hồ Chí Minh để làm bình phong cho đảng. Ai nói ngược lại những gì ông Hồ hay Đảng dễ dàng bị liệt kê là phản động, và bị tù đầy.

Trong khi đó, một số người tại Mỹ có vẻ tin rằng ông Trump nói gì cũng đúng. Đó hiển nhiên là quyền của họ. Nhưng người khác không tin ông Trump, cũng là quyền bất khả xâm phạm của họ. Cho nên việc tấn công những ai phê bình ông Trump, không cần biết đúng hay sai, thì không chỉ sai mà còn rất nguy hiểm cho nền dân chủ.

Điều mà tất cả chúng ta không nên quên, đó là dù một người có vĩ đại đến đâu đi chăng nữa, có công dựng nước và giữ nước như George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams v.v… cũng không có nghĩa là họ đại diện cho toàn dân Mỹ. Các tổng thống vĩ đại nhất của Mỹnhư George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, có công rất lớn đểhướng dẫn người dân và quốc gia Mỹ vượt qua những thử thách lớn lao của thời đại, từ cuộc chiến giành độc lập, cuộc nội chiến hoặc Thế Chiến II, nhưng không có nghĩa là họ nói gì cũng đúng. Họ không phải là thánh nhân. Họ cũng chỉ là con người và có những sai lầm của mình.

Vì nhận thức được tầm quan trọng của quyền tự do ngôn luận như thế nên một số nhà lập quốc Hoa Kỳ đã ngay lập tức đệ trình tu chính án 1 đến 10 sau khi Hiến pháp được thông qua năm 1789, và mãi đến năm 1891 mới trở thành chính thức, mà sau này được biết đến là Tuyên ngôn Nhân quyền (Bill of Rights).

Tất nhiên Hoa Kỳ chưa thể gọi là dân chủ hoàn toàn cho đến năm 1964 khi các Đạo luật vềQuyền Dân sự 1964 và Đạo luật về Quyền Bầu cử 1964 được thông qua và có hiệu lực, để mọi công dân Mỹ có quyền bầu cử ứng cử và các quyền dân sự khác như nhau. Nhưng nhờ quyền tựdo ngôn luận và báo chí mà nền dân chủ của Hoa Kỳ, cho đến nay, tuy có lúc lên lúc xuống, nhưng chưa bao giờ bị nguy cơ trở thành độc tài.

Khi nào các quyền tự do ngôn luận, báo chí bị xâm phạm, và tính độc quyền về sự thật và sựtôn thờ lãnh đạo lên ngôi, thì đó là lúc cả nền dân chủ sẽ bị đe dọa.

Nhưng chúng ta có thể lạc quan rằng, chỉ có một thiểu số nhỏ đang tìm cách “khống chế” các tiếng nói khác biệt; trong khi đa số vẫn ủng hộ sự đa dạng trong suy nghĩ, hành xử và phát biểu ý kiến. Đó chính là điều khiến nước Mỹ trở thành hấp dẫn. Tôi cho rằng những người ủng hộông Trump không phải ai cũng vô lý hay cực đoan. Không nên vơ đũa cả nắm. Nước Mỹ là nước có truyền thống văn hóa chính trị lâu đời nhất, và người Việt lánh nạn cộng sản hiểu rõ tác hại khủng khiếp của độc tài toàn trị ra sao. Vì thế tôi mong rằng những kinh nghiệm và bài học lịch sử, của Việt Nam và trên thế giới, nhắc nhở chúng ta rằng tôn thờ lãnh tụ, dù lãnh tụđó có chính đáng và chính nghĩa đến đâu, sẽ là một rủi ro lớn cho nền dân chủ mọi nơi.

Đấu tranh vận động dân chủ cũng có nghĩa là phải làm sao để quyền lực không tập trung vào một thiểu số, như tôi từng trình bày trong bài “Tự do và quyền lực”. Mục tiêu là để các tiếng nói khác biệt trong xã hội được tôn trọng, dù khác biệt đến mấy. Chính vì thế, dù có những suy nghĩ khác với Nguyễn Ngọc Như Quỳnh, tôi thật sự trân quý và ca ngợi sự can đảm của cô trước và cả sau khi rời Việt Nam. Tôi mạnh mẽ tin rằng tiếng nói của cô, cũng như của bất cứai, cần được bảo vệ và tôn trọng, miễn sao chúng ta đồng thuận về các nguyên tắc và giá trị dân chủ căn bản.

(*) Tôi quan niệm rằng cuộc đấu tranh chống lại độc tài áp bức để xây dựng một đất nước Việt Nam nhân bản, dân chủ và giàu mạnh, là bổn phận và trách nhiệm, trên hết, của người dân Việt Nam. Không phải của ai khác. Mà người dân Việt Nam ở đây là mọi người, không riêng cá nhân ai cả. Không riêng gì Nguyễn Ngọc Như Quỳnh. Đất nước Việt Nam không phải của riêng NNNQ. Cô NNNQ đã dấn thân, đã đóng góp nhiều trong khả năng của cô. Nhưng một mình cô không thể tạo lại thay đổi. Nó đòi hỏi trách nhiệm của rất nhiều công dân trong xã hội này cùng nhau góp phần mang lại thay đổi.

(**) Điều 19 của Tuyên ngôn Quốc tế Nhân Quyền (viết tắc UDHR, tức Universal Declaration of Human Rights) nói: “Mọi người đều có quyền tự do ý kiến và bày tỏ; quyền này bao gồm quyền tự do nắm giữ ý kiến mà không bị can thiệp, và tìm kiếm, tiếp nhận và truyền đạt thông tin và ý tưởng bằng bất kỳ phương tiện truyền thông nào và bất kể biên giới.”

Điều 19 của Công ước Quốc tế về Quyền Dân sự và Chính trị (viết tắc là ICCPR, tức International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights) khai triển thêm Điều 19 của UDHR.

“1. Mọi người đều có quyền tự do nắm giữ ý kiến mà không bị can thiệp; 2. Mọi người đều có quyền tự do bày tỏ; quyền này bao gồm tự do tìm kiếm, tiếp nhận và truyền đạt thông tin và ý tưởng của mọi thể loại, bất kể biên giới, có thể bằng nói, viết hoặc in, bằng dạng nghệ thuật, hoặc bằng mọi phương tiện truyền thông nào mà người đó chọn”. Phần phụ số 3 trong điều 19 ghi rằng quyền này phải đi đôi với bổn phận và trách nhiệm, và có thể bị đặt vào một số giới hạn nào đó, để tôn trọng quyền và uy tín của người khác, hoặc để bảo vệ an ninh, trật tự của quốc gia, hoặc sức khỏe và đạo đức công cộng.

UDHR và ICCPR đều đến sau Hiến Pháp Hoa Kỳ 1789, nhất là Tuyên ngôn Nhân quyền (Bill of Rights năm 1791), gần 160 năm sau.

چرا برخی مسئولان ما فساد می شوند و برخی دیگر فساد و ناکارآمدی را توجیه می کنند؟   

Cache   

شعار سال: محمود سریع القلم در یادداشتی به یک پرسش مهم در تاریخ ایران پاسخ داده است.

 اخیراً دانشجویی این سؤال را مطرح کرد:

“آیا این آقای وزیر متوجه آمار و ارقام نیست؟ آیا او متوجه مطالعات و تحقیقاتِ علمی نیست؟ مگر او تحصیل کرده نیست؟ پس قاعدتاً باید با فکر، منطق و دلیل صحبت کند، قضاوت کند و تصمیم بگیرد. چرا این سخنانِ غیر واقعی؟ چرا از افکار و سیاست های مردود دفاع می کند؟ چرا این درجه از توهم؟”

محتوای این سؤال به طیف وسیعی از سیاست مداران و مسئولان در سطح جهانی بر می گردد. دریک سالِ اخیر، قانون اساسی و مقرراتِ انتخاباتی چین و روسیه تغییر کرده اند تا روسای جمهور این دو کشور بتوانند برای یک تا دو دههٔ آینده در قدرت بمانند. در شبکه های اجتماعی و میزگرد های “علمی” این دو کشور نیز، عده ای به توجیهِ حقوقی، اجتماعی، ملی و سیاسی این تداوم حکمرانی حکمرانان و اُلیگارشی پرداخته اند.

کانونِ این بحث و سؤال دانشجو “تمایل به ماندنِ در قدرت” و “توجیه افکار و سیاست های موجود توسطِ اطرافیان” است.

اگر ذهن و سیستمِ تحلیلی آقای وزیر را واکاوی کنیم، (Deconstruction) به چه نکاتی ممکن است در ناخودآگاه او برسیم:

-آنقدر این پُست ومقام لذت دارد که حد ندارد؛

-این درآمد، در رسانه ها بودن و دیده شدن خیلی لذت دارد؛

-چقدر امکانات و منابع در اختیار است؛

-چقدر فرصتِ سفر و گرفتنِ حق ماموریت وجود دارد؛

-چقدر فرصتِ سخنرانی و مورد تمجید قرار گرفتن پیش می آید؛

-با این همه امکانات، می توان صد ها نفر را در اختیار گرفت؛

-چقدر فرصتِ رئیسِ جلسه بودن پیش می آید؛

-چقدر امتیازاتِ جانبی و نانوشته به دست می آید؛

-بنابراین، باید مهارت هایی را برای ماندن در 5-4 دولتِ مختلف کسب کرد. پرنسیب به چه درد می خورد!؛

-اگر قرار باشد دقیق و حقیقی قضاوت کرد که نمی توان از مزایای سِمَت بهره برد؛

-باید تمام مهارت های تحلیلی و توجیهی را برای دفاع از وضع موجود به کار بست؛

-باید از کلمات و عباراتی استفاده کرد که عمومِ مخاطبان را تحت تاثیر قرار داد؛

-باید دائما نقل قول کرد تا وفاداری کامل اثبات گردد؛

-بعضی وقت ها برای تهییج احساسات، باید کارهای سمبلیک کرد؛

-باید به میان کسانی رفت و آن ها را تایید کرد که در شکل گیری افکار عمومی موثر هستند؛

-سیاست مدار، روشنفکر نیست که انتقاد کند و با دلیل و آمار قضاوت کند؛

-سیاست مدار، آدمِ آکادمیک نیست که تحقیق کند وسپس اظهار نظر؛

-کجا مقرر کرده اند که سیاست مدار باید حقیقت را به خبرنگاران بگوید؛

-باید از فضیلتِ ابهام حداکثر استفاده را کرد؛

-ده درصد از حقیقت گفتن، زیاد هم هست؛

-به کارگیری واژه هایی مانند شرافت، صداقت، انسانیت و وجدان برای انحراف افکار عمومی ضروری است؛

-اصل، حفظ سِمَت و وزارت است؛

-اصل، تطویلِ سِمَت و وزارت است؛

-اصل، یادگیری روان شناسی حفظِ قدرت است؛

-اصل، توجیه، پیچاندن و گیج کردن است؛

-فردی که در پی حقیقت باشد خیلی نمی تواند در سیاست، قدرت و وزارت دوام آورد؛

فلاسفه اندیشه سیاسی و نویسندگان مختلف، با مضامین گوناگون، عموم عبارات فوق را در یک جمله خلاصه کرده اند: در طیفِ تمامِ لذت های قابل تصور در بشر، هیچ لذتی بالاتر از سِمَت، قدرت و احاطه و تسلط بر دیگران وجود ندارد.

بعضی عبارات دیگر:

جان استاین بِک (John Steinbeck): قدرت فساد نمی آورد؛ ترس از دست دادنِ قدرت فساد می آورد؛

آبراهام لینکلن (Abraham Lincoln): می خواهید شخصیتِ فردی را آزمون کنید به او قدرت بدهید؛

افلاطون (Plato): بهترین ارزیابی از یک فرد این است که با قدرت چه کار می کند؛

ارسطو(Aristotle): فردی که با همه دوست است، دوست هیچکس نیست؛

کنفسیوس (Confucius): درجهٔ دانش یک فرد این است که وسعتِ جهل خود را کشف کند؛

مارک تواین (Mark Twain): گول زدن افراد از متقاعد کردن آنان راحت تر است؛

ماکسیم گورکی (Maxim Gorky): بی رحم ترین دشمن ما، پرداختنِ به گذشته است؛

فئودور داستایفسکی (Fyodor Dostoevsky): بهترین روش اقناع زندانی برای این که از زندان فرار نکند این است که هیچ وقت فکر نکند در زندان است؛

فردریک نیچه (Friedrich Nietzsche): همه ما از حقیقت می ترسیم؛

امانوئل کانت: (Immanuel Kant): تصاحب قدرت در نهایت استفاده از استدلال را خراب می کند؛

توماس هابز (Thomas Hobbes): علاقهٔ به قدرت فقط با مرگ متوقف می شود؛

جورج اورول (George Orwell): نابودی معنای حقیقی واژه ها، چقدر زیباست؛

آلبرت اینشتین (Albert Einstein): اهتمامی که برای ترکیبِ قدرت و منطق انجام شده به ندرت موفق بوده و فقط برای مدتی کوتاه؛

ناپلئون بُناپارت (Napoleon Bonaparte): قانون اساسی باید کوتاه و مبهم باشد؛

جورج اورول (George Orwell): ما می دانیم که هیچ کس قدرت را به دست نمی آورد که بخواهد زمانی آن را از دست دهد.

تا آنجایی که توانستم برای دانشجو توضیح دادم که او باید با ماهیت و جنس قدرت آشنا شود تا از مدارهای ایده آلیستی و یُوتُوپیا خارج گردد.

آنچه واقعیتِ تاریخ بوده از این قرار است:

از جمله قدرت و ابهام، قدرت و زور، قدرت و حیله گری، قدرت و کتمان، قدرت و پول، قدرت و سوء استفاده از واژه ها، قدرت و تغافل، قدرت و لذت، قدرت و تکبر، قدرت و اخفاء، قدرت و آدرس غلط دادن، قدرت و اطلاعات غلط دادن، قدرت و ترساندن، قدرت و انحصار، قدرت و خودخواهی، قدرت و پرخاشگری، قدرت و کنترل، قدرت و حفظ قدرت، قدرت و نمایش، قدرت و تظاهر به تواضع، قدرت و هر روز در روزنامه ها بودن، قدرت و دستور دادن، قدرت و تحقیر دیگران، قدرت و نیاز به تایید دیگران، قدرت و لباس، قدرت و نحوه نشستن، قدرت و غیبت، قدرت و خود را اخلاقی نشان دادن، قدرت و مرتب حرف ها را تغییر دادن، قدرت و بخش های کلیدی یک موضوع را پنهان کردن، قدرت و مزایای قدرت.

این ابعادِ قدرت و ده ها بُعد دیگر، اجزای لاینفک قدرت هستند و حتی حالت عادی و طبیعی دارند. خیلی تربیت و آموزش می خواهد تا این گونه نباشد.

چطور می توان تصور کرد فردی برای ده سال رئیس جمهور چین باشد، کشوری که جایگاه اول را در بسیاری از شاخص ها در سطح جهان دارد و بعد بخواهد از لذتِ دائمی قدرت چشم پوشی کند؟ برای اینکه این قدرت حفظ شود، بخشی از عامه را می توان با احساسات مهار کرد؛ برخی از همکاران را با امکانات؛ بعضی از نویسندگان را با سمت و مزایا.

گروه بسیار بسیار کوچکی می ماند که سه راه دارند که یکی از آنها مهاجرت است.

قدرت خیلی شیرین تر از آن است که موقتی باشد. آیا رها کردن قدرت در کشوری مانند روسیه با توجه به مساحتِ وسیع، منابعِ طبیعی، توانِ هسته ای، ذخائرِ نفت و گاز، تاریخ و ادبیات، توان تسلیحاتی و جمعیت نه چندان زیاد و با 11 ساعت تفاوتِ زمانی میان شرق و غرب آن، کار راحتی است؟

قدری سِمَت و امکانات توزیع شود کافی است و در کنار آن جلوگیری هوشمندانه، غیر مستقیم و دقیق از شکل گیری هر نوع تشکل رقیب.

William Burns که در دههٔ 1990 سفیر آمریکا در اردن بود در کتاب خاطرات خود می گوید که مَلِک حسین به صورت دائمی، افرادِ اطراف شاهزاده حسن، که در آن موقع قرار بود جانشین او شود را، تغییر می داد تا مانع از تشکیل کانون مستقلِ قدرت شود. همین روش در مصرِ حُسنی مبارک، عراقِ صدام، زیمبابوهِ رابرت موگابه و بسیاری از کشورهای آفریقایی و آسیای مرکزی برقرار بوده است.

آیا قدرت و حفظ قدرت در غرب هم شیرین است؟ البته که هست.

این طبع بشر است. قدرت، لذت و استتار لذت جزء لاینفک طبع بشر است. در غرب این خصوصیت طبع بشر را پذیرفته اند و در مقام سرکوب آن بر نیامده اند. بلکه از چند روش استفاده کرده اند تا این خصلت را محدود، محصور و کنترل کنند:

1) آزادی رسانه؛

2) رقابت حزبی؛

3) انتخاباتِ فراگیر؛

4) محدود کردن دورۀ قدرت و سِمَت.

وقتی فرانسوا اُولاند در پایان دورهٔ اول ریاست جمهوری خود متوجه شد تنها 14 درصد جامعۀ فرانسه، او را تایید می کنند از کاندیدا شدن خود برای دور دوم ریاست جمهوری صرف نظر کرد در حالی که می توانست یک دورهٔ 5 ساله دیگر نیز رئیس جمهور باقی بماند.

باراک اوباما درانتهای دورۀ ریاست جمهوری خود به آفریقا سفر کرد و در صحبتی که با دانشجویان در دانشگاه کِنیا داشت به طنز گفت که بسیار علاقمند است که رئیس جمهور باقی بماند ولی قانون فقط یک دورهٔ هشت ساله، اجازه ریاست و قدرت را می دهد. صدها رویه وجود دارد تا مانع از تداومِ قدرتِ او شوند و او نمی تواند قانون اساسی را با مانورسیاسی و به رأی خود تغییر دهد.

غربی ها از یک طرف موانع حقوقی برای تداومِ لذت از ریاست جمهوری ایجاد کردند و از طرفِ دیگر به جامعه و رسانه ها توانِ نظارت و تشکل دادند تا بدین شکل، توانِ استتار، تغافل، کتمان، حیله گری و انحصار، کم شود.

نمی توان ادعا کرد که این روش ها ایده آل هستند اما وضعیتِ آلمان از زیمبابوه بهتر؛ شرایطِ کانادا از پاکستان ارجح و افقِ نروژ از اردن امیدوار کننده تر است. تمدن بشری تا کنون این روش ها را کشف کرده است. این روش ها فعلاً باعث شده تا افراد در دانمارک به مهاجرت، تبعید یا زندان نروند.

طی چند قرن از 1648 به بعد، صد ها فیلسوف، رمان نویس، هنرمند، فعال مدنی، خبرنگار، نمایشنامه نویس و دانشمند، هزاران ساعت زمان صرف کرده اند تا توانِ استتار و وسعت لذت در مدارهای قدرت را محصور کنند. ظهور برنی سندرز (Bernie Sanders) در آمریکا و حمایتِ قابل توجه نسل جوان و طبقه متوسط و تحصیل کرده از او، نشان از زنده بودن اندیشه تغییر برای عدالت اقتصادی و جلوگیری از انحصار و دوقطبی شدن جامعه است.

رفتار خوب و بد انسان ها شرطی است. حفظ قدرت و سِمَت به مراتب مهم تر از استدلال، منطق، Fact، آمار، دلیل، مطالعه، تحقیق، مدرک، تحصیلات و علم است. چرا رقابت حزبی تعیین کننده است؟ چون از خود بزرگ بینی و خود حق پنداری جلوگیری می کند. بنابراین، داشتن تحصیلات به معنای مبرّا بودن از این آفت نیست.

آنچه مهم است ساختاری است که این فرد تحصیل کرده در آن عمل می کند. یک ساختار او را مجبور می کند با دقت، Fact، و قضاوت منطقی تصمیم بگیرد(مانند آنگلا مِرکل فیزیک دان و استاد دانشگاه در آلمان شرقی سابق) و یک ساختار، تحصیل کرده را مجبور می کند که از اندیشه ها و سیاست های اشتباه، بی عاقبت و مُخرب نه تنها حمایت بلکه در تحکیم آن ها نیز بکوشد (مانند طارق عزیز، وزیر خارجه تحصیل کردۀ فرانسه و حقوقدان دورۀ صدام حسین).

از این رو، دانشجو شاید متوجه شد که فضائل فردی وزیر در ساختاری معیوب به عملکرد منفی او می انجامد. زندگی و تلاش او در لذت بردن و بهره برداری از امتیازات قدرت صرف می شود. وقتی تغییر ناممکن باشد، حفظِ سِمَت با همهٔ رموز آن مبنای رفتار می گردد.

نتیجهٔ بحث با دانشجو بدین جا ختم شد که در بیشترِ مناطقِ جهانِ فعلی، شما خیلی نمی توانید گله مند باشید وحتی انتظارِ کارآمدی داشته باشید. شما در پی کشفِ فونداسیونِ ساختمانی باشید که در طبقهٔ بیستم آن، افراد مشغولِ لذت بردن از سِمَت و قدرت هستند؛ فونداسیونی که زیرزمین است و دیده نمی شود. درحالی که استدلال روی زمین است و قابل دیده شدن. استدلال فقط با شفافیت از غُربَت رها می شود.

Donald Trump should take a lesson from Justin Trudeau — and even Doug Ford — on coronavirus leadership   

Cache   

WASHINGTON, DC—“Nothing would be worse than declaring victory before the victory has been won,” President Donald Trump said Sunday — continuing his gradual U-turn from earlier attempts to declare victory over COVID-19.

Trump has stopped talking about reopening the country by Easter and extended social distancing until the end of April; he’s turned from predicting minimal casualties to saying anything fewer than 200,000 deaths would be a tremendous success.

They are rare climbdowns for a president resistant to correction. But the COVID-19 crisis is exposing leaders’ false promises and blustering optimism by the day, while exposing their weaknesses and strengths.

And for America that is happening with lightning speed. By Tuesday, the death toll in the country had tripled since Thursday to more than 3,000, now surpassing the number killed in the 9/11 attacks.

While there is admiration for the leadership of U.S. governors like New York’s Andrew Cuomo and Maryland’s Larry Hogan, and Canadian leaders Justin Trudeau and Doug Ford, Trump’s daily press briefings remain points of conflict and confusion. He continues to find fault in others and deflect blame from himself.

Leaders are often defined by their response to a crisis. Trump’s moment in this crisis is his mid-March insistence that: “I take no responsibility at all.”

It is at odds with what experts say is the most important thing in a crisis: be accountable.

After accountability, historians looking at great world leaders and business management consultants advise empathy.

“Deal with the human tragedy as the first priority,” Gemma D’Auria and Aaron De Smet, two senior partners at corporate management consultants McKinsey & Company wrote recently. Franklin Delano Roosevelt dictated his Depression-era radio addresses while “trying to visualize the individuals he was seeking to help: a mason at work on a new building, a girl behind a counter, a man repairing an automobile, a farmer in his field,” Arthur Schlesinger Jr. once wrote.

Empathy is not a quality Trump is known for and that has been on full display during this crisis.

Trudeau’s caring for his children while in isolation as his wife recovered from COVID-19 created a sense of shared experience. Cuomo has been a father figure for a suffering New York family.

Ford jumped in his truck to deliver a donated shipment of ventilator masks. “A leader puts himself into the action and brings the people and resources to bear,” author John Baldoni wrote in the Harvard Business Review almost a decade ago.

Baldoni and the McKinsey consultants also say leadership means taking a moment to figure out the situation before acting (“leaders should not resort to using their intuition alone,” D’Auria and De Smet write). Yet, Trump’s approach has been to improvise in front of the entire world, speculating about untested medicines and sometimes ignoring medical expertise.

Other common pieces of crisis leadership advice common in expert writing on the subject— the value of preparation, early recognition and accountability, the setting aside of partisan fights and ability to rally a team of rivals — show qualities the U.S. president has lacked.

But the most consistent piece of advice demonstrates Trump’s most obvious failing thus far: levelling with people about the scope of the challenge.

Presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin recently wrote in the New York Times that Roosevelt followed his famous “Nothing to fear but fear itself” pronouncement with an acknowledgment of hard times that lay ahead, saying “only a foolish optimist can deny the dark realities of the moment.”

Celebrated moments of leadership often show plenty of resolve but few rosy projections. Winston Churchill famously offered his public nothing but “blood, toil, tears and sweat.” During the Cuban missile crisis, John F. Kennedy told Americans, “Many months of sacrifice and self-discipline lie ahead.”

Cuomo’s celebrated reassurances have not been sugar-coated. On Tuesday he said he expected that the peak of the virus in New York was still weeks away and he anticipated “many thousands” of deaths ahead. Early on, the Republican governor of Ohio warned people, when there were only two confirmed cases of community spread there, to assume 100,000 people in the state had the virus.

But Trump has spent weeks minimizing potential costs. Only now, as it becomes too obvious to ignore, has he begun acknowledging the severity of what the U.S. faces. When asked why it took so long on Monday, Trump said he hadn’t wanted to panic the nation, “Those statements I made — I want to keep the country calm.”

Much expert advice on crisis management says people are calmed when leaders display understanding and demonstrate they have planned to deal with the worst. A good summary of that advice might sound something like, “Nothing could be worse than declaring victory before victory has been won.” The president belatedly offered some good advice this week. His country may be reassured if he shows he’s heeding it.

Joe Biden Outlines His Pandemic Plan In Basement Broadcast   

Cache   

Joe Biden Outlines His Pandemic Plan In Basement BroadcastFormer Vice President Joe Biden kicked off what he promised to be frequent addresses to the nation on Monday by outlining his vision for what a successful emergency response looks like, using President Donald Trump as an example of what not to do.  “Donald Trump is not to blame for the coronavirus,” Biden said in one of several critical remarks about the president. “But he does bear responsibility for our response.” Framed by 16 visible shelves of books and assorted Americana memorabilia, including an arrangement of antique-looking photographs, a football, and a hanging picture of a United States flag, the former vice president stood, dressed in a full suit and tie, in the basement of his richly-lit home in Wilmington, Delaware.The set up at his house—equipped with a campaign poster affixed to a lectern reminding viewers to “Text UNITED to 30330”—didn’t exist before this weekend. But it was all part of setting the tone for what his campaign promised would be regular updates to the nation as a counter to Trump’s erratic daily press briefings.  Reading from a scripted speech hours ahead of Trump’s presser planned for 5:30 p.m., Biden outlined several actions he’d like to see the president move towards in the immediate future, including using the Defense Protection Act to address the current shortage of medical supplies, extending cash relief to workers over corporations, and other progressive initiatives.“Unfortunately, as of last night, President Trump and Mitch McConnell were offering a plan that let big corporations off the hook. They proposed a $500 billion slush fund for corporations, with almost no conditions,” Biden said, in his first address to the public in six days. “Social Security checks need to be boosted. Student debt should be forgiven.”He also called for ending the “infighting” within the current administration.“Trump keeps saying he’s a wartime president,” Biden said. “Start to act like one.”“To paraphrase a frustrated Pres. Lincoln, writing to an inactive Gen. McClellan during the Civil War: 'If you don't want to use the army, may I borrow it?’” Biden said. The flu pandemic of 1918, the Great Depression, and two World Wars also made it into his speech.Biden made a point to acknowledge Republican and Democratic governors across several states working to minimize the public health crisis, including Mike DeWine (R-OH), Larry Hogan (R-MD), and Charlie Baker (R-MA), who he mistakenly referred to as Charlie Parker, as well as Gavin Newsom (D-CA), Gretchen Witmer (D-MI), Jay Inslee (D-WA), and Andrew Cuomo (D-NY). As Biden addressed the public via livestream, cable news outlets carried Cuomo’s speech live. As Democratic frontrunner, Biden’s campaign has been attempting to work out the intricacies of adapting to a digital-only format for several weeks. While his prepared address was a drastic technological improvement from his first “virtual town hall,” which took place just 10 days ago with several malfunctions, the livestream experience was still a bit wonky. At one brief moment, the former vice president put up his hands in an apparent attempt to move on from a stalled teleprompter. “Deep in the heart of every American, there burns a flame,” Biden said in a closing thought to the country, an apparent effort to offer some comfort. “It’s an inheritance from every generation of Americans that has come before us. It’s why we have overcome every crisis we have ever faced before. That flame is not going to be extinguished in this moment,” he said before exiting without taking any questions.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

BAIC and Didi plan car leasing service amid new car sales slowdown   

Cache   

Chinese automaker BAIC Group and ride-hailing service provider Didi Chuxing plan to team up with other industry players to lease BAIC’s cars to customers amid concerns about ride hailing and vehicle sharing eating into car sales.  The companies, which have a joint venture to develop “next-generation connected-car systems”, will partner with electric vehicle (EV) battery maker CATL, State Grid, Postal Savings Bank of China and online used car trading platform Uxin to build an “exchange of car use right”. They aim to have a fleet of 100,000 cars for leasing in the next three years, companies said in a statement released on Saturday. Yang Jun, vice president of SoftBank-backed Didi, told an online press conference that Didi will explore more leasing projects in the future including car rental and sharing services. China, the world’s biggest auto market where more than 25 million vehicles were sold last year, is also world’s biggest ride-hailing market. Auto executives have expressed concerns that new car sales will be disrupted by passengers’ growing ride-hailing use. As a result, Didi launched joint ventures with different automakers including Volkswagen and BYD while SAIC Motor and Great Wall operate their own ride-hailing services. General Motors Co’s Cadillac also launched its first leasing project in China earlier this year. Research by consulting firms Bain & Co and Deloitte showed fewer customers in China’s big cities think owning a car represents their social status or is a symbol of their identity. Industry-wide auto sales fell 8.2% last year, pressured by slowing economy, new emission standards and the impact of Sino-U.S. trade tension. Via Reuters. Reporting by Yilei Sun and Brenda Goh.

Comment on New Articles Will Help You Rethink McClellan by Steven R. Stotelmyer    

Cache   
The supplies began showing up after Scott’s visit in late October, almost too late to be of any use. I agree, one would think the condition of the soldiers would come first. Yes, Lincoln was aware of the true situation when he visited Antietam in early October (he witnessed a food riot- it’s in my book). As I have asserted it was not so much McClellan having the slows as it was Lincoln having a bad case of the fasts. Because of his Secretary of War’s intense hatred of McClellan thousands of soldiers suffered in the autumn chill of 1862. Was Stanton acting on his own or with Lincoln’s knowledge? It’s not entirely clear. Either way it cast the martyred president in an unfavorable light. As constitutional historian John W. Burgess wrote, “it is very nearly certain that there were some who would have preferred defeat to...victory with McClellan in command. It was a dark, mysterious, uncanny thing, which the historian does not need to touch and prefers not to touch.”
