天安门,世界上最大的城市广场。Tian’anmen Square,whose size is of the utmost largeness in the world,is the most important political center。天安门城楼的巨幅画像【figure】,是毛泽东。1989年4月,有三个来自湖南【Hunan province】的年轻人,向画像泼了墨汁。广场上的年青学生们齐声谴责【blame the three young men in chorus for their crazy actions】。是夜,狂风暴雨【blustering rainstorm】。难道真龙天子真的动怒了?

景物是与人的视角,视野相联系的,The scenery is connected with human views.先看一个词:perspective,本是透视的画法,透视图。引申为“远景,前景,展望,前途”。人为这所有透视的起点,于是有“观点,看法,观察”。
We must look at the problem in perspective/in its proper perspective.
A perspective of our country’s history。
landscape:n.风景, 山水画, 地形, 地貌
landscape应该在范围上比scenery更宏观,朗文上的解释:a wide view of country scenery。Scenery可指某点的风景,也可指舞台的布景。Scene:现场, 场面, 情景, 景色, 发生地点, [戏剧]一场, 布景, 道具布置。
sight:n.视力, 视觉, 见, 瞥见, 视域, 眼界
catch sight of,看见
in one's own sight
由自己的眼光看来, 照自己的见解
in sb.'s sight
在某人面前; 照某人的眼光看来

所谓老心者治人,劳力者治于人,mentally govern,physically governed。
当年毛泽东在北京大学图书馆做了几个月的图书管理员(administrator),月薪是8块大洋。那时北大图书馆在沙滩红楼。李大钊还好点,对毛泽东倒还客气(kindly),因为李是馆长。但其他的大学者们(scholars,professors)是多少(more or less)有些(somewhat,slightly)学者派头的(professorial),对毛润之先生可是视而不见。他们当然估计也不会看面相,若要是有曾文正公的相面术,可能会对毛泽东好点。据说,毛泽东的自尊心(self-esteem)受到了莫大的(utmost)伤害(hurt),在心灵上【psychologically,心理上的】留下痕迹(marks,trace),为日后迫害(persecute)知识分子(intellectuals)埋下伏笔【foreshadowing,fore-:预报性,预示性的动作,forecast,天气预报,shadow阴影】。这当然是八卦式的瞎推论,且不信他,但毛这个人自负骄傲,倒是必然的。
谁若有了知识资本,谁就有了话语的能力,就有可能掌握着话语的权力。历代的统治者(governors)们是惮于(fear to)让人们有知识会思考的,思考多了,给自己的统治挑出(seek out)什么毛病,就很麻烦。知识分子们则不一样,一向是“为天地立心,为生民立命,为往圣继绝学,为万世开太平”的姿态。统治者往往笼络知识人,得到知识资源的补充【rainforce,加强的意义】,以寻求(seek for)政权(regime)的合法性(legitimacy)。但有时候,知识分子很让人恼火,老挑皇帝的刺。他们bother了皇帝,让皇帝感到很郁闷(depressed),很boring。麻烦了。
毛泽东安静的躺在纪念堂【memorial】里面。外面的世界依然在变(evolve,用这个词好些,演变,发展,进化),川流不息,毛本人的body,成了众人观仰的对象。实际上(actually,virtually),这就是一种看。有一次在广场打车,跟北京的出租车司机聊起(talk about)毛泽东。他说,毛一生作的最大的错事是杀光了聪明人。是啊,地主,知识人,都是聪明人。唉,这历史,这穿透千年的惆怅,我心头无以言说。
