Pop corn


The pressure cooker that we call Italy is over-heating. The steam cannot get out. Itís the journalists stopping it. Itís the politicians stopping it. Persons who refer only to themselves and who are deprived of any contact with the real world. The citizens know and start to realize that the law does not protect them. Without the law they have to do it on their own, or just be resigned for as long as itís possible. They know that the law has class. Itís not for everyone.
In the absence of protection, the Italians get by. They burn down nomad camps. They paralyze the city with spontaneous demonstrations against the military base at Vicenza, against the criminality that is protected by legal regulations. The residents of whole condominiums come down to the street to beat up drug pushers.
Pop corn that explodes here and there. Before doing it all together. And when, on those rare occasions, rights are recognised, itís just a make believe.
A joke. As for the charges for topping up mobile phones, first they are abolished and then just maybe. Like for the financing for incinerators first abolished and now in your backside. Like the promises to eliminate ad personam laws and conflict of interests in the election programme.
The State has got impunity for itself. Itís Previti in Parliament. Itís Vito and Pomicino in the Antimafia Commission. And mad salaries and bonuses for the parliamentarians. And mayors and local cabinet members that donít even consult their citizens.
The pop corn right now is a bit stunned, confused, disorientated. Still a few seeds. They take it out on the effects and not on the causes. With those who are poorest. With the lowest in the social order.
When will they understand that itís useless? That itís a waste of time. That they are aiming at the wrong target. Then the pressure cooker will explode and many will have to flee between the morning and the night.

Beppe, I think they will never understand that they are wasting their time, do you know why?
This ill-omened mechanism is called "scapegoat". If you can't pick on the real culprit, because he's too powerful or untouchable, you can get angry with the scapegoat, somebody weaker than you, of course.
Nomads, immigrants, they are everywhere, we are spoilt for choice.
Sorry, but I'm very pessimistic about Italian's cleverness.
