[00:00.00]Amnesty mobilises thousands of people who have never been tortured

大赦国际动员成千上万没有因为个人信仰而受到折磨或监禁的人,

[00:04.62]or imprisoned for their beliefs to act on behalf of those who have.

去为那些遭受这种不幸的人奔走。

[00:08.75]The power of human empathy, leading to collective action, saves lives, and frees prisoners.

人类的同情心引发了集体行动,拯救生命,使那些被关押的人们得以释放。

个人的福祉和安全有保证的普通百姓聚集在一起,

[00:21.49]join together in huge numbers to save people they do not know, and will never meet.

携手挽救那些与他们素不相识,也许永远不会见面的人。

[00:27.34]My small participation in that process was one of the most humbling and inspiring experiences of my life.

我的参与虽然微不足道,但那却是我一生中最振奋人心的一次经历。

[00:35.35]Unlike any other creature on this planet, humans can learn and understand, without having experienced.

[00:44.07]They can think themselves into other people’s places.

他们可能会换位思考,能够设身处地地去体会他人的感受。

当然,这种能力就像我在小说里虚构的魔法一样,没有邪恶之分。

[00:54.39]One might use such an ability to manipulate, or control, just as much as to understand or sympathise.

有人可能会利用这种能力去操控或者控制别人,也有人选择用它去了解和同情他人。

[01:02.04]And many prefer not to exercise their imaginations at all.

而很多人不愿去运用他们的想象力。

[01:07.33]They choose to remain comfortably within the bounds of their own experience,

他们选择舒适地生活在自己经验所及的范围内,

[01:12.24]never troubling to wonder how it would feel to have been born other than they are.

从来不愿费心去想想如果生活在别处会怎样。

[01:17.10]They can refuse to hear screams or to peer inside cages;

他们会拒绝去听别人的尖叫,不愿看一眼囚禁的笼子;

[01:20.21]they can close their minds and hearts to any suffering that does not touch them personally; they can refuse to know.

对于与自身无关的苦难,他们会封闭自己的内心;他们会拒绝了解这一切。
