Hi guys! Hannibal Barca asked me a pair of questions about my country and he suggested me to open a new Topic.
The questions were: "What the people are thinking? Do they love West? USA? NATO? What do they think now with the crisis?"
Please forgive my barbaric english.
so... in Italy we have lot of opinions about this topic, because Italy was:
- An important fascist country, so we have lot of men and women from the traditional right wing (PDL of Berlusconi, fascists parties like Casapound and Forza nuova ecc..) and nowadays the 15% of the italians vote for those parties.
-and an important left wing nation. Italy was the wastern country with the biggest Communist Party (with a pool of 40-50% during the cold war), and also during ww2 lot of fighters ("partigliani2) joined a communist guerrilla.
The left wing tradition died after the cold war, and was transferred in a pro-USA and pro-EU party called PD. Lot of italian communists rejected their idea after the fall of the soviet union (also couse of the propaganda of the media) and became supporters of PD, and of the NATO. Most of them just can't see an alternative to the neoliberal policy.
The scenary has been very sad for many years, because almost every party was a puppet of the United States.
Anyway 2 year ago there was an huge change, and nowadays many Italians have refused NATO and Europe and they vote for a new party, the "Movimento 5 Stelle".
This party is against the "financial Europe" and seeks to change Italy, which was destroyed by the European policy.
It is the only italian party that criticizes the United States and the NATO wars and I'm quite a supporter of this movement .
However Movimento 5 Stelle is young and it’s having some problems with the Media controlled by the other parties, which defame the movement.
The Movimento 5 Stelle controls the 19-30% of the electorate.
Even if the MPs of the M5S are doing a great job ( they all are young guys), the traditional left and right wings have joined to face the new honest threat, and Matteo Renzi ( a criminal in my opinion) from PD is the new PM.
therefore our government is pro-EU and pro-NATO,but many people will no longer tolerate the crisis and the unsuitability of the current government, and I hope for a change bigger than the Movimento 5 Stelle.
