"Castle in the air" nghĩa là gì?

đẹp quá, ảo ảnh hay ảo mộng...? Photo by Nico Benedickt on Unsplash.
'Castle in the air' là một lâu đài trong không khí, thể hiện một mong ước, hi vọng về một cuộc sống gần như không thể trở thành sự thật (hi vọng hão huyền, viển vông).

Ví dụ
Few of the wealthy (giàu có) and powerful go to jail (nhà tù) in this country. Forty-two years of jail sentence will merely be a castle in the air for a people who have long endured the wait for a grand Marcos chastisement (trừng phạt). Lest (sợ rằng) we forget, this is the Philippines, where justice (công lý) is selectively skewed (lệch) if the price and influence are right.

Socialism (chủ nghĩa xã hội) is just another castle in the air. You cannot live in it.

"He started it and built it all up, but he built a castle in the air. He didn’t do the documentation (tài liệu), he didn’t put up the routines (lộ trình). He signed his own employment paper. In Sweden you should know that it’s not allowed to sign your own employment paper."
