Nano stars

And Pippo dissociated himself ...

Can you imagine Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Michael Moore, Joan Baez, David Lettermann during an election campaign for georgedabliubush? Imagine them keeping quiet on the weapons of mass destruction that were never found in Iraq? Imagine them shrugging off the destruction of the planet and the refusal of the Kyoto agreement desired by the oil lobby? The same people that have been financing the republican presidencies in the last decade.
The American Star System wanted Obama and they suffered Bush. In Italy the stars are nano, fixed, and indifferent to everything. Our own Star Nano System, like Fiat, is always for the government. The doormat Fazio, big baby Jovanotti, the rubbish collector Pino Daniele, the silent Vasco Rossi, mother’s boy Baglioni. The attendants Bonolis and Gerry Scotti. The former companion De Gregori, the optimist Pieraccioni. The Eagle of Arcore Iva Zanicchi. Mr. Benigni in the arms of Mastella for a fistful of Euros.
No one who denounced the lodo Alfano, the nuclear power stations, the death of parliamentary democracy, the corruptor of Mr Mills, the incinerator. I invited a few of them to V Day. They didn’t come, apart from the rare exception. They were busy. If they had participated, then “good-bye” to TV, producers, soirées, nice homes, invitations to the feasts of the parties and advertising.
Baudo dissociated himself on live TV when I said that the socialists were thieves and he kept his job. Today no one dissociates themselves anymore. Who do they dissociate themselves from? They would have to dissociate themselves from themselves. They have achieved the tranquillity of a fixed position. At Piazza Farnese, at Chiaiano, at the Grey Mouse Night in Genoa, there was no nano star.
The influence of the System’s cloned nano stars on public opinion is enormous in a TV State as Italy still is. Silence is golden, the word is silvered, and power is leaden. A lead head.
They will never give up (but is it in their interests?). Neither will we.

PS: for the good ones, the few that are left, I’ll do a separate article.

I think because Italy is a much more smaller country and finding/keeping a career is extremely difficult compared to the US, I believe that some of the above artist mentioned really do have too much to put on the line and would probably all wind up like Grillo - without a job. Also, you have to take into consideration the social/historic/polictical evolution of Italy. Italy was not born a "democracy" like the US. Italy has evolved recently from dictatorships, fascism, and then became a democratic republic. This has a profound effect on cognitive development. I see the effects in Italian schools where my sons attend and the old method (feudalistic/fascism of "I am the professor and you will do what I say no matter what" is still very much alive. The Italian scfhool system still holds a tremendous amount of influence on Italian cognitive development that is very opposite the philosophy of US pedagogy.
