【轉載】林慧思:一個無足輕重的人

林慧思事件再度衝出國際,繼紐約時報之後,英國著名雜誌《環球手表》(Global Watches)近日發表評論文章,十分精警,小弟不揣淺陋節譯饗眾,如有錯漏,並不負責:

中國人終將統治世界,這是遲早的事。我們能做的他們能做得更大更快,而且更便宜!舉個例子,我們怎樣才能製造一點熱鬧事兒?一個全新的王子(譯按:名叫喬治)!而我們的老大哥呢?一個亡命天涯英雄氣短愛國情長的泄密特工愛德華史諾登。你是否留意到那可悲的事實了:為了要讓世界搖動一下子,對我們來說竟是生死悠關的事呀!我們—-英國和美國—-可是兩個世界上最強大的國家呀!(譯按:作者的意思是—-曾經是)可是中國人呢?那裡盛產無名之輩,但個個都可以隨時造成轟動,隨便一個張三李四都可以做出驚天動地的事。就拿最近發生在香港的事來說,一個女人就引發了極大的社會震盪。她倒是有一個名字,叫林慧思,但讓我們省略地稱呼她為林女士吧,因為我們會看到,她只是一個無重輕足的角色而已。

We know the chinese will dominate the world sooner or later, we know that. What we do they can always do it bigger faster and more importantly, cheaper. What we have to do for making a fuzz for instance? A new born Prince. And our big brother? A fugitive-heroic-compatriot-whistleblower Edward Snowden. Have you ever notice the miserable fact that, in order to make the world shake a little bit, it’s a matter of Life and Death for us—- we and the United States, the Greatest Power of world, just let me remind you this lovable and vulnerable fact. But, for the chinese, it just takes one anonym, be it the miserable motor-taxi driver who tried to blow the airport, or be it the mother who plead for her daughter-being-raped. Or just the latest event in HK, but the leading role does has a name in this case, Lam Wai-sze, to be exact, but let’s just call her Ms Lam, as we will see, she is just one person with on importance.
