three days ago, i received a blank e-mail from my brother containing a link to You Tube...
the subject was "lol", so i didn't know what he was talking about and i checked the link.
well, i got on the official hymn of "Popolo della Liberta'" (the recycled italian right-wing party, led by silvio berlusconi) for the upcoming elections of 13th-14th april. the title of this masterpiece (and the main refrain) says "Menomale che Silvio c'e'" (which in english sounds more or less like "Thank God there is Silvio" - Berlusconi, of course!) and the video shows carpenters, teachers, students, taxi drivers, young call-centres employees and other kinds of workers being happy and smiling and thanking God for having given italy someone like silvio berlusconi.
i wonder why there are no lawyers and/or public prosecutors in this video! (check on the net if you can find some information in english on his trials for corruption and other nice stuff - even maphia... maybe on You Tube there is still an old episode of the american tv show "Grand Angle" about his power: very interesting!)
1) how can someone be happy and smile (especially call-centres employees earning 500 euros per months illegally) and live in italy? do they understand how this guy fucked our country? (of course i'm not talking about people in the video: i guess they got paid for it, i hope they were not volunteers! but there still are millions of italians following and trusting this guy...)
2) i am disgusted from him, his party, his collaborators and his politics. and actually i'm disgusted from italian politics in general: the left-wing is boneless, that's why he has all this power.
3) THIS GUY KNOWS WHAT MARKETING IS! AND HE KNOWS THE POWER OF MEDIA ON PEOPLE'S MIND! AND UNFORTUNATELY HE IS THE ONLY ONE IN ITALY TO UNDERSTAND THESE THINGS...
i swear that i'm sorry, but "i have to admit" that he is clever.
but this does not make him a good man anyway.
p.s.: click on the post title to check the video "Menomale che Silvio c'e'"... lol?
