Let’s send them all home

The Storming of the Winter Palace during the 1917 Russian revolution, as depicted in the film “October”.

It’s the triumph of the web and the social media by Sergio Di Cori Modigliani

"It’s the virtuous face of the Internet, it’s turning what makes sense, upside down. It’s that silent civil revolution that is often pompously discussed, in an academic, statistical way, a high-tech way of selling stuff to young people and discounted stuff to everyone. Long live e-commerce.
It’s the virtual world that influences the real world.
It imposes change because of how it is.
It’s the defeat of the nostalgic reactionaries, of the Luddites, of those who hide behind the senescent cloak of “oh yes when I was a lad …” because –from this tiny massive victory- the so-called “silent majority” come out defeated, replaced for ever by the new chaos caused by the comic strips on Facebook, by the stolen quotes, by the bilious rancorous outbursts, shouted out, spat out in the spasmodic search for a Meaning: the new noisy cacophonous majority, the multicoloured and blundering lot that we all are.
To give us back a Meaning to our civil existence.
It’s the silent revolution that the media mafia don’t talk about and don’t give credit to. Because they cannot.
Because they will not.
Because, if they were to do so, they would be signing their own documents of surrender, their inevitable retirement and their subsequent removal to the attic, beaten by the history of human progress.

...

According to them, according to the mummies, we are all “populism”.
It’s what historians have always called “popular outrage”.
We will never again see these people in parliament: Scilipoti, Scajola, Belsito, Rutelli, Rosy Mauro and Alfonso Papa.
It was the anger of the people that sent them home.
It’s been our bulimic anger that has forced the mummies to have electoral committees.
They are starting to understand that the count down has started for them.
They are starting to realise that we are sending them all home.
And this is just the beginning."
Sergio Di Cori Modigliani
