Hello guys, i am not sure if this should go here but well, just move it wherever you feel. I am writing this today because what is happening in my
country in the latest weeks is really incredible and there could not be enough words spent to explain you the whole situation but i will try to cut it
short and inform you before it will degenerate into some kind of nazi germany or fascist italy of 2nd world war.
Recenty after European elections the PDL the biggest political party here, allied with Lega Nord kinda reconfirmed their political supremacy with
around 45% of votes, compared to the last political elections. The prime minister Berlusconi today is also talking with your President Obama. The
reason of this victory is mostly caused cause the left wing here is comepltey DEAD and it's representant are even more corrupted and useless than
ever. They are all complete idiots and Berlusconi appears as the only option possible to most of the italians. He is also the owner of most of the
important televisions and MSM here, including daily magazines, radios etc and he is one of the, or probably THE richest and more powerful "guy"
(around 70 years old) here.
Even if there were like a thousand of different things to take care of (such as earthquake, international crisis and such, for example) the first
thing they URGED after elections were finished has been to introduce a new law that will basically destroy democracy here doing 3 key things:
- stop any kind of phone interception for any kind of crime without EVIDENT proof of crime. Which is a pure nonsense because if you have already
evident proof then you do not need to intercept any suspicious criminal. So if you have a suspect that somebody is commiting a crime police can't do
- block the freedom to press any article about any crime till the process is not finished. Which means that nobody will never know anything about
people committing crimes before like 2-3 years considering how slow they are here on this side. otherwise journalists will risk up to 6 years of jail
for each article and the editor would risk to pay up to 500.000 euros. This basically means no journal here will ever publish any embarassing news
- Each website, including websites as facebook, youtube, blogs, forums etc, will be forced to fix any comment in 48 hours. this apply to different
cases from the simple defamation or harsh opinions to apology of crime. It actually say that "each owner of informatic site" will have to fix or
delete the comments in 48 hours after being requested or he will risk up to pay 25.000 euro. In other words to cut it short, a website like ATS would
receive thousand and thousand of requests such as this and would eventually close or will have to censor most of the posts from people which goes
against government for example. They basically want to apply the same laws of the public press to the websites, blogs etc.
These 3 things are essentialy caused by some different reasons such as
- The fact that most politicians are suspected of crimes, corruption, collusion and relations with mafia. Some of them, like 20 are even in our
parliment after being in a very advanced stage in process for such kind of crimes. Including of course our prime minister. Consider that most of the
parliment is not elected by the people who voted for that guy or that other in their city, but they have been selected at the sole discretion of the
secretary of each party. And that's cause of a law they did some years ago that let it possible. the so called, translated in english "porky law",
called like this by the same one who did it (a politician from lega nord called calderoli) allies of PDL of course.
- The fact most of these politicians does not want to be monitored because they fear that all their corruption will come out. They point out that they
do it for the privacy. But the result of this is that most of the mafia and criminals here will be the first one taking advantage out of it, as there
would be no other way to discover their crimes. Add that politicians here are strictly connected to mafia most of the times and you get the whole
- The personal reasons of our prime ministers, that as you all know has been caught to have relationship with an underage girl, that was making
parties in his big manor in sardegna, using government flights paid by tax money to bring like 40 models in his last year's eve party (for example),
and being involved with the lawyer "Mills" for corruption.
- About the internet thing this is mostly caused by the fact most of the politicians here are either 60 years old and have no idea of what interenet
really is or, for another part are just women, in some cases beautiful ones, former actress and other girls that have been selected by the party, not
for their skills but solely for their being "good at other things", if you get what i mean.
On top of this Lega Nord also made a law where citizens can group together to found some security groups, for security of cities, called "Ronde". I
think it can be tranlsated as "patrol squad" or something. One of these that has been just created is called GNI and is supported by the new born
These guys are indeed also very ridiculous. they use fascist symbols, the hawk, spqr, the solar symbol etc. you can see a video here:
What is really ridiculous is that this guy that claim himself as a patriot and is the founder of this movement/patrol squad also had the italian flag
inverted if you look at it.
Fortunately they have been already accused by apology of fascism that is an anti-costitutional thing here in Italy, and now they said they'll change
everything, they will change symbols etc. we'll see. But anyway this is a clear sign that the extremist right-wing is growing again. with the exteme
victory if more moderate right wing in europe in most of the countries. (also you have seen this happening in other countries like UK for example.
Well i just wanted to inform you more about this.
HOWEVER: The law is still not confirmed and we all hope our republic president will not allow to make it real, just in case senate also will approve
I really hope it will not go live because this would mean both the death of democracy, criminalty spreading large and just a step away from internet
censorship and totaliarian control.
I can't believe it's happening again in 2009.
