Rueda del poder

rueda del poder

¿Qué significa? , lo he traducido como "wheel" , pero asumo que hay más
Quote:
Agradezco no ser una de las ruedas del poder, sino una de las criaturas que son aplastadas por ellas.
no entiendo el usado de "ser" ..pensaría "están aplastadas" es correcto , no?

I thank for not being one of the power wheels, but one of the creatures that are squashed by them.

Entendí lo dicho pero , no comprendo por qué dice "ruedas del poder" y no "ruedas"

Lo traduje como

Because it has a political connotation. The person who talks is glad not to be a part of the people in power (as if the power rode on wheels, like a car), but rather one oppressed by them.

Right. In this case would the wheels of power are "the powers that be"
