False Piety

It was another day on the picket line. Today we were in front of a pharmacy that supposedly sold drugs tested on animals to increase people‘s physiological tolerance for pain. Well that was plausible, but no one ever heard our pleas, they just went from one petty picket line to another unable to pinpoint an overall theme to our actions. I was at a plateau on the whole picket line thing when we met a man who said that we could have a greater impact by pirating ships, using pistols, and doing something more drastic. This would get more attention as well as our faces plastered all over the TV screen and newspapers. We decided to give it a try. He never mentioned any pitfalls.

Our first and only action was on a picturesque pier in Southern California. After eating our fill of pizza and pineapples we headed to the fishing boat that we were sure caught fish and also killed dolphins in the process. Our plan was to wreck the pistons of the boat engine and then make the captain symbolically walk the plank. But we were pilgrims in this new country of activism and the police fell upon us like the plague before we had done any damage at all.

It also turned out that the man who told us to do this was an undercover policeman. All of his false piety was simply a trap to get us to do something crazy so that he could arrest us. And we had fallen for it all.

【译文】
假装虔诚

纠察线进入了新的一天。今天我们是在一家药店前面,据说这家药店买的药在动物身上做过实验,是用来增强人们忍受疼痛的生理能力的。这听起来似乎有些道理,但没有人听我们请求,他们只是从一条小的纠察线走到另外一条小的纠察线,不能对我们行动的主题作出准确判断。在整个纠察线里面,我处于一种稳定状态,这时我们碰到了一个人,他说通过以海盗方式抢劫船只、使用手枪、做一些更加极端的事情我们就可以有更大的影响,这样会吸引更多的人注意,还会使我们的面部出现在电视屏幕上和报纸上。我们决定尝试一下。他只字未提容易犯的错误。

我们的首次同时也是唯一的一次行动是在南加利弗尼亚一个风景如画的码头。吃饱比萨饼和菠萝之后,我们向一条渔船走去,我们相信它能抓到鱼并且还能在捕鱼的过程中杀死海豚。我们的计划是破坏船上发动机的活塞,然后让船长象征性地在原木板上行走。但是在这个新的激进主义国家我们是朝圣者,我们还没来得及搞任何破坏活动,警察就像瘟疫一样对我们进行了袭击。

原来那个要我们做这种事的人是个警察密探。他装得那么虔诚完全是个圈套,他让我们做一些疯狂的事,这样就可以把我们抓起来。我们还真上了他的当。
