The insoluability of the Libertarian-Social Democrat question: evidence from Google Translate

Typing the phrase “no man is an island” into this doohickey produces no equilibrium and causes an infinite loop between the phrases “1 of the islands, the only” and “one of the island, the only”.

Does my worth as an individual derive from my being one of the islands or from being one of the island? Google translate doesn’t know; how can we?
