Average Italians steal tortoises

tartarughe.JPG

I took my children to a tortoise park near to Massa Marittima. It’s sponsored by the European Community. The first visible sign in this tiny park invites people to leave their bags at the entrance because of thefts of tortoises. The sign is written in the major European languages but we know well that it is addressed to Italians. Only the average ones. The others are excluded.

Average Italians steal tortoises,
Average Italians don’t want problems,
Average Italians prefer to leave their problems to BorsellinoFalconeAmbrosoli who would still be alive if they had minded their own business,
Average Italians want liberalisation when they are clients,
Average Italians want monopolies when they are industrialists,
Average Italians dodge taxes if they can,
Average Italians criticise those who dodge taxes (they do it but because of necessity),
Average Italians love their families and keep their houses clean,
Average Italians want a salary, a university degree and a job with the State,
Average Italians build abusively and want amnesties (always because of necessity) ,
Average Italians become angry, really angry if their money is touched,
Average Italians are good in public and racist in private,
Average Italians wash their bottoms but do not have a purifier,
Average Italians have every right and no duty,
Average Italians double park and if you protest they get cross,
Average Italians are mafia inside,
Average Italians always have a friend who will do them a favour,
Average Italians always owe someone else a favour,
Average Italians choose other average Italians as their representatives,
Average Italians cause a heavy stomach and diarrhoea,
Average Italians consider public property to be private and this is why stealing from the public is not a crime,
Average Italians are an absolute majority in our country,
Average Italians want the intellectuals to be organic in the system,
Average Italians want journalists that are servants,
Average Italians want average politicians,
Average Italians are semi-free. They know it and are happy like that,
Average Italians are poor things who steal from themselves and from their country and they don’t know it.

However onerous, it is they, the averages, that define and sustain the polirizing forces.

This Pancrace is another example of people who is thinking that to change the society we need to make graffitis everywhere and about anything. I'll put him in the Grillo's list:-)

On Il Corriere della Sera our justice minister comments on his "...trent'anni di vita parlamentare, che festeggio proprio in questi giorni..." (...thirty years at the chambers, just completed...).

On Voltair's vein, I heard someone saying: this explains why our national affairs can not gain the good wind.

Average people are always the same.
The average person has peculiarities, which distributes itself according to the normal curve. That means that the most of cases are in the middle of the distribution, the mean.
If we are talking about "average italian" we are talking about a virtual person who is representative of this "average behavior". Fortunetly there are a lot of people in Italy who don't identify with this pattern, but they aren't the majority.
Beppe: I agree 100% with your post!
