The deniers


Italy is in the hold of a verbal diarrhea. A national illness. Deny everything and affirm the contrary. The dominant class, a four-pointed star: politics, media, banks, mafia, smell of burning.
It’s a maddened ant-hill. Everyone knew, everyone established a distant position. But from whom?
The journalists and the politicians are putting on the iron drawers of anti-politics. They are afraid that citizens might get an interest in the bottom of their backs.
Italy is in the grip of Alzheimer’s: denial is taking hold everywhere. It’s an evolution of paraculismo, of trasformismo. It’s an offence to our intelligence. Like paying the licence fee for TV broadcasting on the cost of politics. Conducted by those holding the tail of politics.
Those who affirm that Auschwitz was a Club Med with a swimming pool is a denier.
Enel that is promoting clean energy while it is constructing nuclear power stations is a denier.
The advertising of SUVs immersed in nature is denial.
The born-dead-by-the-party-secretaries Democratic Party is denial.
Montezemolo who accuses politics that kept Fiat alive with the cassa integrazione is a denier.
The Pope who talks about families without responding to the film ‘Crimen Sollicitationis’ is a denier.

Joe, if you really (I mean REALLY) want to try your chances as a sexy woman... there are some good doctors who could help :P

Hi Joe! Life in Moscow can be pretty good, depending on what you do there. I hope to go back sometime.

What´s up now? Fighting with Ilaria... for a change? :D

To answer your questions: "write" is fine and implies "usually". Wrote is fine too, but refers to something specific in the past.

Carciofo? Artichoke?? Whatever. Clapper should be a not-too-kind way of saying mouth haha

Slinging wise, I am not sure.

Dig means "to like". It´s slang, but I´d say it´s American.

Reeks means stinks which also means sucks. Fa schifo. haha

Well, see, the blog is pretty useless for any political purposes. But you can learn English. Well, the kind of English with which you can get in trouble anywhere in the English speaking world!


By the way, if you translate word-by-word "ci sei o ci fai" into English... it would not make much sense. You have to know the meaning of the expression before translating it--not the reverse.

Alright, talk to you later!

Luigi´s assessment of Italy´s situation is correct and his advice about leaving is good. However, I am not so optimistic about Spain´s future. There are worrying imbalances in its economy. Anyway, it´s better than Italy.

Italy is lost.We passed the no-return point a long time ago, the boat is sinking and there's still heaps of people laughing and joking, reckoning Italy has the strenght to stand up and re-live the glory days of the past.
Let's face reality, the entire Italian system is a mix of mediocrity, cheating and less-ado with no responsibility whatsoever. Of course there's still a minority of people willing to save this mess, but they are utterly outnumbered by the "typical" italians.
The only hope is going away. For those of you who can, leave Italy to its sad destiny and restart a better live in other countries. Spain is an excellent example, to quote one.

To Claudia Pace,
oi, morei seis meses no Rio e em Sampa e vi muitas coisas similares no Brasil. Acho que tudo isso nao è uma caracteristica dum pais sò, como a Italia ou o Brasil, mais è verdade que os paises latinos estao bem na frente nessas coisas ruins.
Um abraço

Erwin Thule is a denier, and in a normal nation he would be prosecuted:
