Clip one’s wings
    2017-November-13  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

32岁沙特王储穆罕默德·本·萨勒曼提出“愿景2030”计划,旨在为这个依赖石油的国家带来社会和经济方面的变化。请看本报周五的报道:

Since his emergence in June as crown prince of the world’s oil superpower, Mohammed bin Salman, 32, has set his sights firmly on economic, social and religious reforms in the conservative kingdom.

The young and dynamic prince, known by his initials MBS, has already overseen fundamental cultural and economic transformations, shifting the social environment in the Gulf state, half of whose 31 million population is aged under 25.

The government appears to have clipped the wings of the once-feared religious police — long accused of harassing the public with rigid Islamic mores — who have all but disappeared from big cities.

报道中的clip one’s wings本意是“剪掉鸟翅膀上的羽毛让它不能飞”,引申为“限制(自由、野心)”,例如:

The kids need to be able to explore the world around them — don’t clip their wings.

孩子需要探索周围的世界,不要限制他们的自由。
