What is happening close to us, in Veneto, cannot leave us indifferent. The arrest of many representatives of the independence of Veneto causes a serious rift between the institutions of the Italian State and the people. Meaning, between the two fundamental components of a democratic State.
The citizens appoint their institution, voting their representatives. Institutions grant the well-administration of the State, in full respect of the citizens. But, when this pact is violated, then the democratic system ceases to exist. And citizens start to revolt.
This is what is happening in the most corrupted country of the weak European Union: citizens – being overwhelm by a devastating economic crisis, outcome of a maladministration lasting since decades and brought out by the unpunished political caste – are becoming aware to have no possibility left to change this institutionalized rottenness.
By now, they are completely stripped of any actual voting rights. In fact, Italian elections are just a grotesque play, meant to grant to the same system of power – unaltered since decades – the strongest control on the State. This system of power is made of that the same caste – with Masonry-Mafia characteristics – which constantly recycles itself creating governments which are the result of cross agreements among deviated powers.
The decaying of Italian democracy becomes faster as the social and economic collapse becomes more dramatic. The last three national governments have not even been chosen by the voters, rather, these were appointed by the personages of the State themselves.
Europe tolerates that, hopefully – they think – this can prevent further damages. The collapse of Italy would actually mean the end of this curious union of people, forced in the name of economy. Too forced. The utopia of wealth for all, in the end, did only produce the misery of too many. Destabilizing countries which are too different to remain united without having a true ideal, which cannot, obviously, be merely material.
And so, while the careless Europe of bankers does only demand to respect the accounts (which means: reducing public debt), the desperation of those people, deprived of their future, rises. And unstoppable misery creates a new, revolutionary army. The army of those with nothing left to lose: either suicide or fighting to the end. Their enemy? A tyrannic State, whose institutions are, day by day, only seen as the hateful invaders of their land.
This, in territories with centuries of history and strong national identities as Independent states – just like Veneto – represents a powerful trigger for the spontaneous reaction that is taking place now. The will to secede from the “crook” State it strong, and it is perceived as the last possibility of salvation left by those who considers Italy the cause of all tragedies. While the repressive actions performed by the Italian State do only lead to an enforcement of both this opposition and the different souls of the people that become “partisans for freedom”.
All those who are fighting for their ideals are “terrorists”. It is happening in Trieste as well: here, the citizens demanding to the Italian State respect for their rights – granted by the Treaty of Peace of 1947 – are reported by the judiciary authorities for being “subversive” and “attempting” to the unity of the State.
Yes, exactly in Trieste, in that Free Territory occupied by Italy in yearly violation of international legality. The Italian Government has been way too clear as for Trieste: whoever appeals themselves to legality is going to be prosecuted without rest by the Italian authorities.
Obviously, law has completely lost its value, becoming just an instrument to repress the subjugated population.
This is why I do perfectly understand my Veneti brothers: today, I am a citizen of Veneto too.
