363.And they are made much worse by our willful blindness to risk as much as our reluctance to work together before everything goes to hell.
由于人们都在装傻,事情变得更加糟糕,除非真的死到临头了,否则人们都尽量抱着不合作的态度。

六级词汇讲解:
本句是被动句,其句型结构为:“主语(原宾语)+be+动词的过去分词+by+宾语(原主语)”。其主动形式为:Our willful blindness to risk as much as our reluctance to work together made them much worse before everything goes to hello as much as连接的两个并列短语是主动形式句子的“主语”,被动形式句子的“宾语”。

willful的意思是“任性的;故意的”;blindness的意思是“装傻”。reluctance意为“不情愿,勉强”。go to hell是“毁灭,完蛋”的意思。如:
Corruption made him go to hell.
贪污使他的人生走向了毁灭。

英语六级考点归纳:
as...as是表示比较的肯定式,中间接形容词或副词原形,表示“前者同后者一样”;其否定式为not as...as或not so...as,表示“前者不如后者”。如:

He studied as well as Lily,but isn't popular because of arrogance.
他的学习跟莉莉一样好,但由于傲慢而不受欢迎。
Although he worked hard, he didn't gain as much as his colleagues.
尽管他工作努力,挣得却不如同事多。
