The Game of Silence

Silence = Death, Keith Haring

The game of silence is the final supporting crutch of this pretend democracy. Anyway the citizens are suffering from hearing problems in relation to the truth. When they hear it they no longer notice it. In the “NeverEnding Story”, reality was devoured by nothing, bit by bit. In Italy nothing has been superimposed on reality. Facts disappear, lies remain. They are published without interruption to make them plausible. Information is no longer a tool of politicians. It is itself politics. The only one that exists, behind it there’s nothing. Casini or Brambilla, Veltroni or Mastella are offspring of nothing. They do not exist. They are headlines on News broadcasts, on printed paper.
The few, very few journalists who write the truth are marginalized, sued or moving around with police escorts, like Travaglio, Abbate and Saviano. In Italy the truth hurts, but it hurts only those who tell it. Silence is golden. It covers up kick backs, European funding used for exchange votes, convicted politicians. It’s a new Iron Curtain between the citizens and the politicians. The media are no longer controlled, directed by the parties and by the economic powers. They are part of them. They are their press office.
In Italy anything can be under discussion, from the TAV, the G8, to the Dal Molin base. Certainly sterile discussions, without consequences for power. Only one thing cannot even be discussed: information. No one talks about the purchase of Mondadori, that happened because of the corruption of judges, of Rete4 to get it put on satellite, of the psycho-dwarf’s conflict of interests, of the parties’ occupation of the RAI, of public financing of the newspapers.
It’s not possible to open up the sewer of information. The politicians and our pretend capitalists know that well. If someone opens up the manhole cover of the sewer, then they are finished.

MILANO - Il processo per i presunti fondi neri nei diritti tv Mediaset e' stato aggiornato al 21 gennaio. Silvio Berlusconi resta imputato per frode fiscale, esce dal procedimento il presidente Fedele Confalonieri, che era accusato solo di falso in bilancio.

To say and repeat that the Television and the most of the media in Italy are shit is like to shoot on the red cross.
It did not happen during the last years, but it is the result of a process initiated during the 80es.
What I do not understand is why people still watch this Television? Why for God sake for one day people do not shut down those boxes.... This would generate much more panic than 10 demostrations in the streets.....

Public financing of the newspapers canceled, RAI without advertisement and audited by an independent committee, guarantee of speech freedom for websites... maybe we need a new law...
