We are facing an urgent decision. It’s not to decide which combination of acronyms will support the next photocopy government, but how to ensure that in the next parliament, the weakest groups in this country are represented: the many, young and old, who since the crisis have slipped below the poverty line, insecure and lacking future prospects. Those who have not voted for years because they believe politics cannot provide answers to their daily lives. Those who are not safeguarded because they are out of work, or have only precarious work. Those who cannot make ends meet because of insufficient salaries or pitiful pensions.
The great question of our time is inequality. The collective unhappiness generated by the fact that few profit from common resources and goods, making everyone else miserable.
The shocking reality of this world is an economy that kills. These radical words — these words of truth — were not uttered by a political leftist leader, but by Pope Francis. The question is: “Is it feasible to transpose this truth with a bold and innovative political agenda?” We believe there is no choice. And we think that the first step of a real fight against inequality is to bring out to vote all those who want to overthrow this condition and regain their rights and dignity.
