论工业社会及其未来.doc

INTRODUCTION 介绍 1. The Industrial Revolution and itsconsequences have been a disaster for the human race. They have greatlyincreased the life-expectancy of those of us who live in "advanced"countries, but they have destabilized society, have made life unfulfilling,have subjected human beings to indignities, have led to widespreadpsychological suffering (in the Third World to physical suffering as well) andhave inflicted severe damage on the natural world. The continued development oftechnology will worsen the situation. It will certainly subject human beings togreater indignities and inflict greater damage on the natural world, it willprobably lead to greater social disruption and psychological suffering, and itmay lead to increased physical suffering even in "advanced"countries. 1,工业革命及其后果为人类带来了极大的灾难。这两者极大地增加了我们这些生活在“发达”国家的人口的预期寿命,但也破坏了社会的稳定性,令生活空虚无谓,剥夺了人类的尊严,导致了心理疾病的扩散(以及第三世界里的生理疾病扩散),还严重地破坏了自然界。技术的继续发展将令上述情况进一步恶化。人类尊严必将遭到进一步剥夺,自然界也必将遭到进一步破坏。社会也很可能遭到进一步扰乱,心理困扰将会加剧,而生理疾病甚至将会在“发达”国家蔓延开来。 2. The industrial-technological system maysurvive or it may break down. If it survives, it MAY eventually achieve a lowlevel of physical and psychological suffering, but only after passing through along and very painful period of adjustment and only at the cost of permanentlyreducing human beings and many other living organisms to engineered productsand mere cogs in the social machine. Furthermore, if the system survives, theconsequences will be inevitable: There is no way of reforming or modifying thesystem so as to prevent it from depriving people of dignity and autonomy. 2,工业-技术体系可能幸存也可能崩溃。假如该体系幸存下来,可能最终将会降低生理与心理的痛苦水平,但在此之前必须经历一段漫长而痛苦的调整期,而且人类与众多其他生命体也将付出惨重代价,永远沦为社会机器上的齿轮。更有甚者,假如这个体系幸存下来,将会导致不可避免的后果:没有任何方法能够改革或改进这一体系,使之不至于剥夺人的尊严与自主。 3. If the system breaks down theconsequences will still be very painful. But the bigger the system grows themore disastrous the results of its breakdown will be, so if it is to break downit had best break down sooner rather than later. 3,假如这一体系崩溃,结果依旧
