政坛一片混乱—人民呼唤超人出现

本文属阅读资料

“You will give the people of Earth an ideal to strive towards. They will race behind you, they will stumble, they will fall. But in time, they will join you in the sun.”

“你会给地球上的人们树立一个榜样,激励他们不断向前。他们会紧随你的步伐,哪怕蹒跚学步,哪怕跌跌撞撞,但他们一定会及时赶上,与你一同迎接胜利的曙光。”

The United States of America is at a crossroads politically, socially and culturally. We have a president who did not win the popular vote, has the lowest approval ratings in modern history and who is under FBI, Senate and House investigation for colluding with the Russian government to win the election. Furthermore, the president has shady business dealings that the country knows nothing about because he will release his tax returns, not divest his business interests, and is profiting from the office. Also, he lies. He lies so uncontrollably and so laughably that it actually puts people’s lives in danger. This president has also so far fired three people investigating him. Frankly, I don’t care what party you identify with, that looks like a cover-up.

如今,美国不管是在政治方面,社会方面还是文化方面都处在一个交叉口。我们的总统并没有赢得普选,且是美国现代历史上群众支持率最低的总统。此外,他还深陷FBI(美国联邦调查局)、参议院和众议院调查的泥潭,关于他是否与俄罗斯政府相互勾结来获取竞选的胜利。另外,总统还有隐蔽的商业交易,这些交易不为国民所知,因为尽管他将公开自己的纳税申报表,却不从中剥离出自己的商业利益,同时他还领取政府的薪水。另外,他撒谎了。他肆无忌惮而荒诞可笑的谎言只会置人民于水火之中。迄今为止,这位总统已经解雇了三名调查他的官员。诚然,我不在乎你和哪个党派站在同一战线上,那些不过是表面罢了。

And this is just the president. There’s also an Attorney General with a history of racist views and actions. An Attorney General so racist, he was denied a federal judgeship by Republicans in the 1980s. This is a man who wants to oppress people with no desire to reform a broken and outdated criminal justice system.

以上仅仅是总统的问题。我们的司法部长有过持有种族主义观点并对此采取行动的历史。他的种族主义偏见如此严重,以至于在上世纪八十年代,共和党人拒绝接受联邦法官的判决。他总是想着去压迫人民,却故步自封,不愿改变现在早已过时,破旧不堪的刑事司法系统。

This is all a symptom of a craven Republican Party. A party with no morals and no compunction to help others. Just look at the archaic healthcare bill. And worst, the “Party of Reagan” has no desire to investigate the president’s ties to Russia, let alone the fact that Russia influenced the election. This is a party that cares little for the people they represent and only cares for their party’s soulless, nihilistic agenda. It’s a sad state of affairs when a political party has to gerrymander it’s way into power and ignore the needs of the many for tax cuts.

这些就是唯唯诺诺的共和党的病症。现在的共和党失去了道德与良知,不愿帮助他人。这从这过时的医疗保险法案中可见一斑。更糟糕的是,“里根的领导班子”无意调查总统与俄罗斯的关系,更不必说俄罗斯干预大选的真相了。如今的政党对于他们所代表的广大人民漠不关心,他们所关心的只有那些没有实质内容的议程。当一个政党只能不正当地操纵它的权力,而忽视了减税的迫切需要,这是一种多么悲哀的事态啊。

These, of course, are all broad generalizations of the problems with the Republican party and the current administration. That isn’t to say the Democrats or “left” is perfect, but there’s a better moral understanding of people’s needs on that side of the aisle, or even younger generations that don’t particularly identify with a political party, but want to see a better world for everyone.

当然,以上的这些都是对共和党和现任政府所面临的问题的概括。这并不意味着民主党或者“偏左”就是完全正确的,但是他们对于人民的真正诉求有着更加完善的理解。或者甚至对于更加年轻的那一代来说,他们并不彻底认同哪一个党派,他们所向往的是每一个人都能生活在一个更好的世界里。。

How can we change this? Where can we look for an example of not only the goodness of humanity, but the very embodiment of the idea of what America can be? The answer is in comic books and pop culture. The standard of human and American compassion and desire to do good in the world lies with Superman. (And I don’t mean the current movie version).

我们要如何改变这一现状呢?我们从哪里才看到人性的光辉,还有美国的未来呢?只有漫画和流行文化能给我们答案。我们把人道主义精神、美国式的同情心和行善的渴望都寄托在了超人身上(我指的不是现在的电影版)。

Superman is meant to represent the good in all of us. Not just Americans, but all of humanity. There was an instance a few years back where Superman renounced his U.S. citizenship. The point wasn’t as anti-American as it seemed and it was to show that Superman represents all of humanity (this has since been forgotten in comic continuity). He represents an ideal of upholding truth, seeking justice, promoting equality and striving to be a force for moral righteousness. He does it without religion, he does it without a set ideology or belief system, he does it because helping others and the less fortunate is simply the right thing to do. We should follow that example and work together to achieve the potential of both America and humanity.

超人这一形象代表了我们身上所有的优良品质,不但是美国人的,更是全人类的。有这样一个情节,在几年前,超人放弃了他的美国国籍,这重点不在批判美国,而是想要说明,超人代表了全人类(而这一点似乎漫画连载中被遗忘了)。他维护真相,寻求正义,倡导平等,努力成为正义的化身。他不是出于宗教,意识形态或信仰,他这么做仅仅是为了帮助他人,帮助那些不幸的人,而这就是他的原则。我们应该向他学习,齐心协力,发挥全美国,全世界的潜力!
