Rich04 Honey, Be Glad We’re Not Rich

The last option of the dispossessed in a global-market order is crime, and if there is
passion and a desire for revenge plus enough intelligence to see that this is the only
way the journey up and out can be made, then kidnapping is the crime of choice.

貧窮人在全球性市場的唯一選擇是犯罪,假如你貪婪高漲,報復心切,外加
足夠膽識看出,這是唯一的途徑向上攀登之旅,那麼綁架就是你所能選擇的犯
罪。

Why? Because—if you’re clever enough and lucky enough—you get your two
million and you also get into the personal life of those people whose lives are so
distant, so different that there is no longer a personal connection between one human
and another, between our intelligent, angry detective in the streets and our young
entrepreneurial, penhouse, dweller. It’s not hard to see what besides the money is
motivating the superintelligent but salaried detective Sinise portrays.

為什麼?因為假如你足夠聰明,足夠幸運,你得到你的兩百萬,你也進入
那些遙不可及、迴然不同的個人生活,那裡人際之間,並不是個人的關係,像街
頭那位聰明而憤怒的警探跟住在閣樓的年輕、企業家之間。

Let’s talk more about the global-market order, an order which has disconnected
personal assets from financial assets, has indeed just about finished marking the new
world order digital allocations of wealth, allocations which the continued use of
electronic financial dealings on a global scale will incrtease geometrically while at the
same time making it less and less possible for those without funds to climb aboard
and make the same journey.

讓我們再談論到個人資產跟財政資產隔離的全球性的市場,確實剛剛完成
財富以數位方式分配的新世界。這種分配以全球性的規模,繼續使用電腦方式處
理財政,所得以幾何級數增加,同時那些沒有資金的人想要往上攀登相同之旅
越來越不可能。

This is a brand new state of affairs that the world has not seen before. While
wealth has been accumulated before in the narrow corridors, they were national
corridors. Now the super wealthy deal with each other globally; they are on the same
journey; they cross paths. And while an order of things which supports the few on the
backs of the many has historically always faced possible overturning, that option, as I
have suggested, has never been less conceivable than it is now.

這是世界前所未有的嶄新的事物狀態,以前財政被累積在狹窄的管道,充
其量是全國性的管道。現在巨大的財富處理則是全球性的。他們交叉運作。雖然歷
史上,少數人的幸福騎在大多數人的背上總是會面臨有可能被顛覆,依我之見,
那種選擇現在完全不可想像。

The world has also never before seen the instrumentation that a global market
now has at its command: The telecommunications industry looms large on the horizon
not simply because it has state-of-the-art electronic “ infernal devices” through whose
agency stocks, bonds, certificates, currency exchange, futures contracts, and the like
are manipulated, but because the same electronic agency can come into the homes of
people like Gary Sinese, the angry detective, and lull him into submission through
gadgetry, from virtual reality to home shopping. He can be put on a numbing diet of
Bread and Circuses.

世界以前從來沒有看過一種工具像全球性市場今天所掌控的:資訊工業龐
然高聳在地平線,不僅因為它擁有最先進的電子「內部設計」,操作代理證卷、債
卷、認證、貨幣交易,期貨合同等等。而且因為這些相同的電子代理能進入像憤怒
的警探,蓋瑞、西尼斯的家中,並且引誘他經由儀器從虛擬的實境進入家庭購物。
他可以麵包果腹或欣賞馬戲團,來麻木自己的肉體跟心靈。
