IKEJA, Friday, Four O'clock ( October '66) : 今是昨非: recast this ideal of liberty into liberality

摘索因卡詩一段寄 大埔事件"拆政府" 2013年8月18臺北凱道:
非豐祭而是人慾橫流之恆嘔
損益計算時但留殘渣棄佳釀
No feast but the eternal retch of human surfeit
No drinking but dregs at reckoning of loss and profit
---IKEJA, Friday, Four O'clock ( October '66) Idanre & other poems (1967,p.49) by Wole Soyinka,
~~~~~
Liberalism triumphed on the principle that the best government is that
which governs the least; now for all the western nations political
wisdom has recast this ideal of liberty into liberality. The shift has
thrown the vocabulary into disorder…p.688

「政治『智慧』卻已將這份自由(liberty)重鑄成慷慨(liberality)之意…….」台北鄭譯本,p. 1155

出於明智的政治考慮把放任自由改變為開明公允…..」大陸本,p. 698

hc贊成台北本:這是10 年前的見解,現在我的看法反過來。
根據:lib・er・al・i・ty ━━ n. 寛大; 心の広さ; 気前のよさ; 贈り物.
