Draghi no longer makes Draghi and undergoes mediation

According to the old adage that “rather than nothing” is better “rather”, the rules passed with great difficulty by the council of ministers are in any case a step forward in the direction of narrowing the field of the unvaccinated, complicating life considerably, spaces of sociality and well-being for those who do not have the vaccine. And for the first time the obligation is cleared: crossing the threshold of the workplace, albeit for the “over 50”, a measure that is anything but painless even at a symbolic level, but for this age group it is also absolutely valid . In short, in comparison with other European countries, Italian legislation remains among the most severe and rigorous. However, at the same time, they represent a step backwards with respect to the intentions of Mario Draghi who, just a week ago in the face of the collapse towards a part of his majority, had expressed the firm intention to extend the Super Green pass to the entire world of work. , without distinction between public and private, under and over.

In draft, veritas. “It is not a political compromise” is filtered by the agencies from Palazzo Chigi in the afternoon. Words that sound like the classic excuse not claimed, in which there is the essence of what happened, in an afternoon marked by the classic push and pull of a quarrelsome coalition government, between a control room shifted to the early afternoon and a council of ministers which lasted almost to the limit of the famous “hour With you”. That of the favor of darkness and institutional disorder. And that is a compromise between those who asked for the obligation for everyone (the Democratic Party), who for no one (the Five stars), who for the over 40 (Brunetta), who for the over 60 (the League). Which, faced with the threat of not voting on the measure, also manages to remove the rule that makes the super Green pass mandatory for those who have to go to the bank or post office, to the beautician or hairdresser or to the shopping center.

Moreover, the third compromise in three weeks: after the Christmas decree on buses and the New Year’s decree with the puzzle about quarantines, the “Befana squeeze” arrives, just as the bulk of the scientific world invokes the obligation and in the last forty-eight hours the peak of 400 deaths is recorded, a number of infections that have not been recorded since April, a growing apprehension over the confusion about tampons and third doses.

We therefore proceed, week by week, with a normative fragmentation of rules and regulations which are complicated to keep up with, which risk producing misunderstanding even in the vaccinated and disciplined majority, annoying the already rebellious minorities, strengthening their prejudice, and also introducing elements of fragmentation within the vast people who have followed the choices of the government, between those who are 49 and those who are 51, subject to different rules while sharing the same desk. Perhaps in this step the next one is already incorporated, at least in the intentions, which lowers the threshold of the obligation to thirty, forty, or forty-five years, but the question arises spontaneously: if sooner or later we must arrive there, or the extension to all, why do it later and not before, according to the logic of a clear assumption of responsibility?

For the answer we do not need Cassandra or who knows what political knowledge: because it costs, politically. A price as expensive as the Quirinale. Dragons of the beginning, who went down to earth to miraculously show, with the strength of his authoritative third party, which is one with an autonomous vision of national interest, had in the first months tamed, with an air and character, even the reluctant leaguers to masks and vaccines, who went to the streets against the Green Pass and who wanted to reopen everything immediately. Draghi, who basically ran for Colle seems to be undergoing the return of politics because he became a party to the Great Game quirinalizio. It becomes concave and convex, and accepts the “politicization” of the pandemic, understood as the domain of political mediation.

All this creates a dangerous short circuit, capable of burning even the best resource of the country, an event that Italy cannot afford. Because it is true that you don’t need someone like Draghi to be a notary in the hen house, and you might as well move to a place of guarantee, but the hen house has become such precisely because it is no longer governed, and is destined to become unmanageable with another or with Draghi no longer making Dragons. It applies to the fight against Covid, as for the Financial Law or the fiscal delegation. With this bad habit, there is the risk of remaining without a government that governs even if it remains in Palazzo Chigi, and the devastating debate will be whether the fault lies with the parties, or with some of them, or with those who, called to do so, failed to manage them. .
