English-Finnish translations for deus ex machina

  • deus ex machina
    Huomaan, ettei kukaan ajattele kansallisten parlamenttien istuntojen iänikuista deus ex machinaa demokratiavajeen paikkaamiseksi. I learn that some think of the old deus ex machina of a senate of national parliamentarians to offset the democratic deficit. Tällaisesta virastosta näyttää tulevan jonkinlainen pelastava enkeli (deus ex machina), mutta herää kuitenkin kysymys, mikä on tarkalleen sen tehtävä. It seems that an agency of this kind is to be something of a deus ex machina, but still we must ask the question: what exactly is its role to be?
  • ihmeratkaisu
  • keinotekoinen juonenkäänne
