I'm Italian, 30 years old, and there's no "political shift" or anything similar.
Grillo is a comedian, in the true meaning of the term. Using his charisma and saying "I'll free you from 'them' and you'll be fine, you'll be taking
all the decisions by yourself, etc..." he caught 25% of the preferences.
A shift? A wind of change? Not really: now the political machinery is paralized, noone wants to take responsability of this disaster, and our three
major parties (Mid-Left, Mid-Right and Movimento 5 Stelle) don't want to negotiate or try to have a conversation about how to prevent our country to
eat, drink and breathe #.
First problem: Grillo's political agenda is the most expensive economical/political proposal ever made in the last...uhm...30 years probably. Noone
knows where they'll find money, how they'll find money, and nobody knows how turn into reality the beautiful things they've proposed.
To be short: promises, promises, promises, as before. A lot of ideas, really good ideas, but nobody knows how to "build" these ideas. Grillo said:
"the Movement will find a way to do this and that", but personally I don't think that plumbers or housewives could solve our economical problems.
I've nothing against professional politicians. We've just to control them strictly, they must feel our smelly breath behind their shoulders.
"You" (the rest of the world, in the most polite and friendly way) should walk in our unconfortable shoes for a couple of weeks, and see the madness
going on in here. Our last hope is an unorganized movement with a lot of ideas but really scarce "know-how"; they planned a 80-billion euros agenda
while every year the political establishment is sucking (from us) 1-2 billions to put a cork in every hole they made.
Other options are: Berlusconi (if you don't know who's he, probably you live in Cartoonia. No, wait: he was born in there), or the Left Party. The
last option is like choosing a crippled snail to kick the hell out of Tyson.
We say "like the cat biting it's tail", there's no end, it's like running around trying to catch yourself. And there's no "magical shift". Now. I
really hope it's coming, but I just see creamy #.
P.S. I read the "Movimento 5 Stelle" agenda many many many times, and I was ready to give my vote, but something rotten started coming out, rotten and
stinky. I have a brain, and as everyone in here we just need to look behing the curtains of this show to see the truth.
A suggestion from a fool: don't jump on the word "revolution" everytime you hear "that's all crap bla bla bla". I'm living in here, I'm living this
thing, and right now there's just chaos and uncertainty. Nobody knows how's gonna end, nobody wants to cooperate for the good of us, the "poop people"
But Greeks are telling us "well, buddy...you just look like us a couple of years ago"
Sorry if I was too long, and sorry for my poor english.
