Out with the new, and in with the old

If you read my previous post, and one entitled ‘The Right Way?‘, you could be forgiven for thinking that Italy is on the verge of seeing something of resurgence in fascism.

Well, Beppe Grillo seems to be of the same opinion, and the title of a recent post of his ‘Fascism is Coming‘, just about says it all.

Just to add fuel to your convictions as to just what is going on in the Living Museum, you may also dislike reading Grillo’s even more recent post ‘Bricks of Gold, Truncheons of Lead‘, which tells of the sort of strong-arm police tactics beloved of extremist regimes the world over. I recommend you don’t read it.

Somewhat ironically, Grillo’s so called anti-political movement appears to have allowed those at the top to find a way to become even more entrenched than they were before.

Spooky it is. This is the 21st century, isn’t it?!
