The French are burning the suburbs of the cities.
It’s strange to say that, but it’s true.
They are French, even though they were born in France of immigrant parents.
First generation French.
If we talk of French people and not of children of immigrants (words change reality) perhaps it’s possible to understand something.

It’s understood that the French don’t exist, what exist are white French, and brown or black or yellow French and that they are not equal according to culture, religion, social position (egalité),
that the white French and those of another colour don’t love each other and live separately, the former in the cities and the latter in the suburbs (fraternité),
that the French are free if they can study, if they have a decent income, if they have a future, but those in the suburbs don’t have a future (liberté).

We are creating a world of disinherited at home, in France, in Great Britain, in Belgium just as in Italy. Integration is a beautiful word, but usually it leads to ghettos and whoever lives there, sooner or later, sees social revolt as the only alternative.

We import the disequilibrium that we have generated in the world and that is not for nothing in the priorities of western governments as explained in the MTV film that has been censored.

If we don’t take heed of poverty this will take heed of us, sending us its offspring and the offspring of its offspring.
And, as time goes by, loads of tiny Bosnias.

as to me, i think this crisis has (also) revealed some peripherical problems. like the journalists and politicians'role:
the first ones are trying to stuck to the events and are increasing the crime rate because of the "violence competition" amongst the suburbs, watching every night the other's performance.
the second ones are keen on stucking to the events, and are saying whatever, as long as it might give them some chance to win one point in the next poll. result? a big mess!!
quite bad...but still, don't worry it's getting better!

Three phrases should be among the most common in our daily usage. They are; Thank you, I am grateful and I appreciate.

Ma come? Hai cancellato il mio commento? Sniff. Così finiscono i fan-girls.

Any man guilty of the next invective is going to be impotent at 12 o'clock. Any woman guilty of the next invective is going to fall in love with him at 00.01 am. Think about it.

Have a nice day

p.s. Mr. Giovanni Piuma, thanks for you kind suggestion.

Ehy Beppe, don't you think that with this two days strike of the italian journalists would be the right time to organize a counterinformation service all round service? I mean just post and comment in a real FREE way the news from ansa and other international agencies would make you a NEW referement in the information market not only in Italy but throughout Europe. So not only a daily article but a REAL TIME, FREE info service ...
Lè! L'hai voluta la bici inglese? Allora pedala :-))

Ciao Beppe e pensaci ... potrebbe diventare un servizio utile e rchiestissimo dato che ormai l'unica cosa che si riesce a guardare/ascoltare sono i cartoni animati di paperino ... e non solo in Italia.

A presto,

There's a battle outside

And it is ragin'

It'll soon shake your windows

And rattle your walls

For the times they are a-changin'

Ciao Beppe,

you are a great man I always read your blog day by day, and you know what makes me feel good!
It makes me feel I am not the only one, and that we must never surrender in life, even though reading newspaper is often depressing (referring also to the topic you are treating in today's post).

Great choice for the use of English as common language for international communication.

We are all world citicenzs, at the end of the day.

Have a nice day.

Dear Beppe Grillo,

This is the wakeup call of a learning process that we, as modern society, are facing nowadays.
I think we are going through a process of integration that will last a century.
Human Being will suffer and die like in the past. Nothing is different from other wars. This is a War!
Modern war

Unfortunately, nothing as yet been learned from past experiences.

We as Humans need to understand the importance of the consciousness. Our inner knowledge e love for ourselves will cure the fear and hatred for the others.
We still do not know ourselves! This is the problem.
