I come from a land where politicians may really, really disappoint your worse expectations. Making them way worse than expected.
I come from a land where people used to unionize and then fight together for everybody’s rights.
I come from a land where corruption, moral and criminal, was and is widespread.
I come from a land where every so many years a new political prophet was born, He Who Will Save Us All From Evil And Poverty And Damnation. Then, three days after his birth, he turns into the next humongous evil.
I come from a land where people speak early and often about what they do not know, and can not recognize a charlatan when they see it.
I come from a land where praying is supposed to solve al problems. Unless you deserve God’s punishment.
I come from a land where the most truthful words are usually uttered by the most evil people, such as: “A pensar male si fa peccato, ma spesso ci si indovina” (mistrusting other people is a sin, but it is often the right guess).
La mia patria è il mondo intero.
