Over the past few decades, we continue to speak of “THE CAST” avoiding the real problem lying in the difference between the level of our public opinion and that of other nations that we must confront in an international context.
A lower middle level education, less books read, an often negotiable or inexistent public spirit, the idea that the State are the “others”, that bending the rules and acting around them is translated in personal advantage. It isn’t so.. It is the full respect for “Legality” and for “Res Publica” (Latin for Public Matter used for Republic) that brings a better quality of life, other than tangible advantages, for instance in foreign investments.
Millions of persons whom are reasoning and behaving uncivilly and family-centrically do to their country much more damage than thousand corrupt and incompetent parliament delegates. It would sufficient explaining what is being “Citizens”, what is a “Public Debt”, to which purposes “Taxes” serve, how “Real Economy” functions.
It’s not simple or easy, but neither is it impossible. Costs less and gives advantages far above the cost.
My friends this letter isn’t mine.. It’s a letter written by an Italian citizen ( Mr. Daniele Argelli – firstname.lastname@example.org ) to the chief editor of ‘La Repubblica’ the respectable Italian daily newspaper.
