 訂正:コラム#5041じゃ、先の大戦での米国の死者に植民地のフィリピンの分を入れるのを忘れた。入れると「42万人」じゃなく、「142万人」になるね。(典拠同じ)

 企業と組合じゃフトコロの深さが段違いだ。
 諸君、「「あと数年ぐらい」」を超える期間、絶対に自民党に政権を戻すなよ。

 自民党が杵を振るうのはもう見たくないです…。

 それでは、その他の記事の紹介です。

 昨日(9日)が辛亥革命100周年だったので、同革命や孫文がらみの記事がいくつか出ていた。↓

 <孫文の豆知識をどうぞ。↓>
 「・・・孫文の号は孫中山で、中国にも台湾にも「中山公園」や「中山路」など「中山」を冠した場所や建物は数多くあるが、孫文が東京・日比谷の宿屋に名を秘して泊まった際、通りがかりに見た表札の「中山」を使ったのがそのいわれである・・・
 晩年は著名な宋家の慶齢を夫人としたのだが、数多くの女性と関係があり、横浜には2人の日本人女性がいて子供もあった・・・」

 <よくも言ったり! その通りだけどね。↓>
 ・・・Sun(孫文) actually ran a regime characterised by racketeering(ゆすりたかりによる金儲け).・・・

 <孫文がやったのは、国際的な支援を得て専制政府に反対することだったが、中国共産党は、辛亥革命のこの核心部分を否定し隠蔽してるってのもその通りだな。↓>
 ・・・China's national evolution in the post-imperial period is rooted in a vibrant tradition of popular opposition to tyrannical government and an openness to international cooperation, but CCP-approved history and rhetoric feverishly denies this truth. ・・・
 <本筋から離れるが、第一次世界大戦の時、10万人もの支那人労務者が英仏軍と行動を共にしたんだね。↓>
 ・・・the despatch of more than 100,000 men to support British and French armies in World War I・・・

 「アラブの春は、・・・対イラク戦争・・・と無関係ではないでしょう。」(コラム#5023)と記したところだが、私と同じことを書いてる人がいたな。↓

 ・・・the misnamed Arab Spring, which has turned from a euphoric winter in Tunisia and Egypt to a savage summer in Libya, Yemen and Syria, casts Iraq in a different light.・・・
 <イラクでは、悪しき独裁者とその家族はいなくなり、少数派による支配もまたなくなった。内戦も既に終息し、選挙と交渉で各派が何とか折り合っていて、死者の数はメキシコやシリアより少ない。↓>
 Iraq, however, looks a lot like what Syria, and much of the rest of the Arab Middle East, might hope to be. Its vicious dictator and his family are gone, as is the rule by a sectarian minority that required perpetual repression. The quasi-civil war that raged five years ago is dormant, and Iraq’s multiple sects manage their differences through democratic votes and sometimes excruciating but workable negotiations. Though spectacular attacks still win headlines, fewer people have died violently this year in Iraq than in Mexico — or Syria.・・・
 The Arab Spring, in short, is making the invasion of Iraq look more worthy — and necessary — than it did a year ago. Before another year has passed, Syrians may well find themselves wishing that it had happened to them.

 スティーブ・ジョブスの奥さん、慈善活動家として活躍してきたんだねえ。↓

 <メリルリンチ勤務後、スタンフォードでMBA・・おお、我が後輩であるな・・、その後起業。↓>
 ・・・Ms. Powell Jobs worked at Merrill Lynch Asset Management and Goldman Sachs in the late 1980s. She met her husband while she was earning an M.B.A. at Stanford University. They married in 1991 and had three children, Eve, Erin and Reed. She also founded a natural-foods company called Terravera.
 <貧しい生徒達のための大学予備校を設立。↓>
 Ms. Powell Jobs's charitable activities date back at least to the mid-1990s, when she mentored high-school students in East Palo Alto, Calif. In 1997, she co-founded the nonprofit College Track, which helps low-income students prepare for college through intensive academic and extra-curricular programs.・・・
 The program has trained more than 1,000 students, he says, 90% of whom went on to a four-year college.・・・
 <様々な慈善団体等の理事に就任。↓>
 Ms. Powell Jobs still serves as president of College Track's board and has joined the boards of Teach for America, NewSchools Venture Fund, Stand for Children, New America Foundation and Conservation International. She is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
 More recently, Ms. Powell Jobs set up a broader philanthropic organization called the Emerson Collective. According to her official biography, it "works with a range of entrepreneurs to advance domestic and international social reform efforts."・・・
  its name is based on Ralph Waldo Emerson's essay "Self-Reliance," and the organization believes in "empowering the individual by giving them tools to live a productive life."
 Ms. Powell Jobs has made public appearances in recent years at the Clinton Global Initiative. She conducted an on-stage interview with actor Ben Affleck in April at a meeting of the Global Philanthropy Forum about his work founding the Eastern Congo Initiative. The two traveled to the Congo last year, and she invested in the Initiative.
 <環境団体にも多額の寄付。↓>
 In recent years, public records indicate, Ms. Powell Jobs made political donations to Democratic causes, including $200,000 in 2010 to a group called Californians for Clean Energy and Jobs, which was fighting a voter initiative that sought to delay a law regulating greenhouse emissions.・・・
