Probably one of Arthur's mistakes or one of Merlin's mistakes was he had a higher view of mankind than mankind merited in the sense of relative intelligence
That maybe people just simply couldn't see greater good,
that people are too busy worrying about their own needs and concerns to be called to some higher purpose
And so he gets back to maybe another problem is possession
因此他回到了 也许是另一个问题上 占有
or having something America's definitely into it and I don't exclude myself
即 得到某物 美国人当然喜欢 我也不例外
I just try to be better than I could be
I say, "Well, I could have that, but I won't"
我会说 "我本可以拥有 但我没有"
I have to say my daughters are much better at it than I am,
so I feel I must've been a good parent that they listen to what I said and not what I did
Of course my mother always said that intelligence skipped a generation
And whenever, whenever she'd kind of jab me with that
I'd say, "That's kind of a mean thing to say about your mother"
But anyway, having is a problem, possessing
And maybe there are deep impulses
He says, on the bottom of 632, deep impulses in the "Fabric of Society" in that leaders tie into those
在632页下面 他说 那些深层次的冲动存在于领导者之间的"社会组织"中
And so Arthur is called forth
These ideals are called forth when the impulse in society is correct for those things to emerge
And that leader simply reflect these impulses, reflect the fabric of society at that time rather than form the fabric of society
这样的领袖显然反映了这样的冲动 反映了那个时代的社会组织 而不是建立了社会组织
makes sense to me
Not trying to make this into a social science course
But that's what's in here
We're back to the ants again, not to beat up the ants at the end
But again, on 633, up in there, he talks about the haves and the have-nots
而是 在633页 上面这里 他谈到了富人和穷人
Remember when we read the ants we had those lists of reasons to have wars?
Like, who has the food or who has the land, and you know "they have too much land and we don't have enough so we deserve to have their land"
像谁拥有食物谁拥有土地 而且大家知道 他们有太多的土地而我们却没有足够的 因此我们应该享有他们的一部分
Or "We have a lot of land, they don't have enough, so they're gonna attack us because they want our land"
或者我们有许多的土地 他们不够 因此他们想攻击我们获得他们想要的土地
That no matter what, you can justify having war
