Utter and complete insanity. The result of this is, of course, it becomes ILLEGAL to defend ones food, farm or even home as hunger now trumps individual ownership of food. Home invasion? "I was hungry". Theft of crops in the field? I was hungry. Markets? Shops with candy bars, sodas, etc....
If this follows up, Italy is finished as a nation.
Perhaps this is a good thing, people will see the utter folly of the myopic fantasy of non-ownership and disincentive of personal contribution and production.
Sheer and unmitigated insanity.

If it isn't okay to steal clothes when homeless and facing the possibility of freezing to death in the winter, then surely stealing food to not starve is also not okay.
The reality is if we keep letting so many people fall through the cracks we will eventually be worse off
