Cá tính của bạn

Chào các bạn,

Chúng ta lớn lên, đi học, và được mọi người dạy cho chúng ta học đủ thứ của đủ mọi thầy, tự cổ chí kim. Và trong tiến trình đó, chúng ta được uốn nắn để làm một kiểu người đi theo những người khác.

Mình không nói ta không cần thầy. Nhưng mình nói ta phải là người tự chủ cho mọi tư duy và hành động của ta. Học thầy thì học, nhưng ta vẫn phải là ta. Mọi nghệ sĩ nổi danh – Picasso, Van Gogh, Segovia, Pavarotti đều có nhiều thầy của họ, nhưng họ thành danh vì họ là một nghệ sĩ chính họ chứ không phải là một phiên bản của một thầy nào cả. Trong họ có lẽ có nhiều tính cách của nhiều thầy, nhưng rốt cuộc họ vẫn là chính họ, với nghệ thuật của riêng họ. Đọc tiếp Cá tính của bạn

Chris Gahl, Barry’s commanding officer. “The freedom of all nations to navigate in international waters is critically important. Barry’s transit of the Taiwan Strait yesterday ensured the right and instills the confidence of all nations to trade and communicate in the South China Sea.”

How Biden will confront China

November 25, 2020, By David Leonhardt

Good morning. Biden introduces his foreign policy team. The Dow breaks 30,000. And Pennsylvania is banning alcohol sales.

How Biden will confront China

The presidents who came just before Donald Trump took a mostly hopeful view of China. Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and the two George Bushes all tried to integrate China into the global economy and political system. Doing so, they believed, could persuade China to accept international rules and become more democratic.

The strategy largely failed.

China used access to the world’s markets to grow richer on its own terms. It rejected many international rules — on intellectual property, for example — while becoming more authoritarian at home. As a recent Times story puts it, China has adopted “increasingly aggressive and at times punitive policies that force countries to play by its rules.”

As reported by VNE, Vietnam has benefited from prudent fiscal policies, largely geared toward supporting vulnerable households and firms, Norris said.
