It is truly disturbing to read through the list of Italian Lay Saints at the end of the 2008 Calendar. Hundreds of people who died for their Country, some unknowingly and others knowing exactly what fate awaited them. We see various forms of black, red, State, mafia and Masonic Terrorists, often associated with each other, who have assassinated judges, policemen, carabinieri, politicians, everyday people, activists and journalists. The main characteristic of these Lay Saints is almost always the same: good people who refused to give up and simply continued to follow their own path.
In Italy, there are only three possible outcomes facing an honest person who comes into conflict with the System, he/she may be:
- bought
- marginalized or
- killed
In order to be able to marginalize someone, you must be in control of the Country and, when you are in trouble, you resort to murder. It depends on the times.
Almost every day, the 2008 calendar shows one person, and often two. A slaughter. Amongst the people who are most at risk we see the magistrates. I think Italy holds the record, amongst the democratic Countries, for the highest number of judges murdered since the end of the War. Murdering a magistrate in France or in Spain could spell the end for a criminal organisation. In Italy, instead, the supporters may even be promoted.
Working as a policeman or a carabiniere is far riskier than being in Iraq or in Kosovo. Soldiers outside the base camp are safe in their steel boxes.
Reading through the list, I get the impression that, for a number of decades, there has been war in progress between the Italy’s honest sector and its dishonest one. An undeclared but nevertheless real war.
In order to be able to raise your head, you need to be wearing a helmet. I believe that the best helmet is freedom of information. V-day, 25 April. V-day, 25 April.

Thanks to the New York Times which talked about Beppe Grillo I can keep up with "the real news" of the country I left behind. I had a tendency to romanticize Italy that I still love deeply; although through Grillo's blog I feel deeply anguished and ache for Italy's woes
Thanks Mr. Grillo for enlightening me, and keep up the good work.

LETTERA DI UN ESPATRIATO


AUGURI SPECIALI QUEST' ANNO PER TUTTI.


Fra cui gli augurii per gli obiettivi privati, quelli, sono scontati. Perché avete in mano la situazione e tutto filerà liscio.

Auguri speciali vi dedico in quanto abitanti dello Stivale impazzito, perché il prossimo anno ci sia un rivolgimento tale che si possa dire, a fine ' 08:

- l' Italia non é più un' oligarchia, parte piuttosto per diventare una democrazia;
- il Paese capisce che conviene che tutti (non solo chi è bravo) rispettino le leggi;
- gli scrittori delle leggi (quelli che pensano a farle per se stessi) capiscano che per far funzionare la giustizia, ci vogliono leggi ben scritte e giudici neutrali; ma non basta...Ci vuole anche un Patto Sociale, per poter ripartire, dopo tante emergenze....
- i gestori dei servizi pubblici, dopo tante emergenze o sopraffazioni, capiscano che é più facile andare a scuola di gestione in U.E., anche per evitare che gli sprechi continuino ad aumentare (e le tasse pure);
- la società smetta di fare lamenti teorici sul diminuito potere d' acquisto e inizi a cercare le CAUSE per cui gli sprechi aumentano, la qualità e competitività si abbassa, e i servizi pubbl. non sanno soddisfare gli obiettivi prefissati (consultando anche gli espatriati);
- gli imprenditori, invece di chiedere al governo competitività, capiscano che i politici sono incapaci di inventarla e che quindi conviene formare associazioni di gente capace, che inventi programmi seri e strumenti adeguati per attuarli, di livello europeo; (invece delle solite chiacchiere);
- i cittadini tutti capiscano finalmente che un Paese ove cittadini e stato non collaborano, ma si ignorano, non ha futuro alcuno, ma ruzzoloni sicuri.

Fate i rivolgimenti che volete, anche migliori di quanto io possa immaginare, ma ..... per carità, non li affidate ai politici.... Sarebbe un fallimento....

Il RINNOVAMENTO per dichiararsi veramente europei, sul terreno, ve lo auguro. Ma sappiate che voi stessi potreste realizzarlo.... solo se smetteste la rassegnazione balcanica e diventaste attivi.

Mi auguro che la Befana vi porti tutte quelle capacità che vi permetteranno:

- di saper associarvi per un processo costruttivo serio (non solo girotondi di protesta);
- di sapere, nell’ ambito di un’ associazione seria (cui potrei anch’ io dare una mano) inventarvi gli strumenti che sono necessari per gestire un Paese (basta guardare nella U.E.);
- di saper preparare anche, in un programma di azione serio, l’ eliminazione degli strumenti, oggi ahimé diffusi, che incoraggiano il delinquere e le mafie.

Spero anche che voi capiate (Prodi sembra non averlo capito) la realtà: Senza affrontare il Problema Sociale, nessuna speranza di andare verso lo sviluppo. Ormai sembra proprio che il sistema Italia, per non aver ancora affrontato tale problema, si contenti di essere il primo Paese Latino-Europeo...

Il Paese non sta fermo! Se non scoprite i motivi del degrado, esso continuerà a ruzzolare giù ! !

Tanti Augurii Speciali per i vs obiettivi sociali e.... Buona Befana.
