    Târih, sosyal (toplumsal, ictimâ’i) geçişi bu döneminin en büyük trajedisini (faciâsını) kaydetmek zorunda kalacak ki kötü insanların rahatsız edici (cırlak) gürültüsü (yaygarası) değil fakat iyi insanların korkunç sessizliğini kaydetmiş (yazmış, târihe not düşürmüş) olacaktır.

سيتعين على التاريخ أن يسجل أن أكبر مأساة في فترة الانتقال الاجتماعي هذه لم تكن الضجة القاسية للناس السيئين ، ولكن الصمت المروع للناس الطيبين.

η ιστορία θα πρέπει να καταγράψει ότι η μεγαλύτερη τραγωδία αυτής της περιόδου κοινωνικής μετάβασης δεν ήταν η έντονη οργή των κακών ανθρώπων, αλλά η τρομακτική σιωπή των καλών ανθρώπων.

La historia tendrá que registrar que la mayor tragedia de este período de transición social no fue el clamor estridente de la gente mala, sino el silencio atroz de la gente buena.

l'histoire devra enregistrer que la plus grande tragédie de cette période de transition sociale n'a pas été la clameur stridente des mauvaises personnes, mais le silence effroyable des bonnes personnes.

la storia dovrà registrare che la più grande tragedia di questo periodo di transizione sociale non è stata il clamore stridente delle persone cattive, ma il silenzio spaventoso delle persone buone.

歴史は、この社会的移行期の最大の悲劇は、悪い人々の激しい叫びではなく、良い人々のぞっとするような沈黙であったことを記録しなければならないでしょう。

சமூக மாற்றத்தின் இந்த காலகட்டத்தின் மிகப் பெரிய சோகம் மோசமான மக்களின் கடுமையான கூச்சல் அல்ல, மாறாக நல்ல மனிதர்களின் பயங்கரமான ம silence னம் என்பதை வரலாறு பதிவு செய்ய வேண்டும்.

lịch sử sẽ phải ghi lại rằng bi kịch lớn nhất của thời kỳ chuyển đổi xã hội này không phải là sự kêu gào gay gắt của những người xấu, mà là sự im lặng đáng sợ của những người tốt.

歷史將不得不記錄,這個社會轉型時期最大的悲劇不是壞人的喧囂,而是善良人民的駭人聽聞的沉默。
