The referendum today, beyond its specific scope, reveals the existence of two opposing conceptions of the world, of politics and, ultimately, of the meaning of life in our country and also beyond our borders.
Last but not least, the Renzi government, consistent with the previous executive governments and subservient to those it represented — that is, large industrial and financial interests — are already allergic to the first petition, which is to measure themselves against the direct expression of popular will.
Do not be fooled by the inevitable referendum on the constitutional “distortion”; Renzi does not take it for what it should be, a confrontation with the popular will, but as the projected plebiscite on his personal narcissistic leadership.
He believes that expressing his own opinion on strategic issues, pertaining practically and symbolically to the future of the people and the quality of their existence, is a waste of time.
Truly a singular idea of the value of direct democracy, but Renzi and his acolytes are wedded to an ideology that is based exclusively on the interests of the potentates of every sector of economic and financial activities.
