There is a wonderful, widespread, suspicious emphasis on the celebrations of the week between April 25th and May 1st.
Forty years ago, when the fascism was not a threat but a reality in many countries of the world, there was an extraordinary spread ofUnit, took off and went to celebrate with the companions in the restaurant.
Today, in a pandemic and without parades, it manifests itself above all via social media with vehemence inversely proportional to the consistency of the risk.
In the year of grace 2021 fascism is entrusted to fringes of marginalized people kept standing by the terrifying evocative power that the term fascism retains but looking at Facebook it seems that Mussolini, Hitler and Franco are on the march to conquer the capitals of Europe.
However, the odds that the historical fascism back to power are zero. At the same time, today the global individual has at his disposal an articulated and technologically advanced range of dictatorships which have undermined the substance of democracy.
There are more or less traditional autocracies, to Putin and Erdogan. Those collectivists, as in China. And there is the Western model dictatorship where one would like to delude the citizen of his ability to choose, to think, to have autonomy with respect to the mechanisms of financial power or, more down to earth, with respect to the symbol of universal imprisonment called with considerable sarcasm. smartphone.
Every day billions of human beings accept – we accept – with automated gestures, to carry around their – our – bracelet electronic, an information center on consumption, desires, loves, dislikes, money in give or take. Everything is available to any kind of control and intrusion to the point that it is almost foolish to distinguish the legitimacy of a public-private spy system active 24 hours a day.
While we cry that fascism will not pass, we welcome a dominance that becomes more oppressive with each software update. It no longer seems strange that Tizio is called to talk to him about Caio and immediately after Fb opens and the posts from Tizio and Caio appear. It does not seem abnormal that you chat about your holiday in Sardinia with your partner over a glass of wine and that immediately Booking propose offers for Stintino. It is acceptable that, in a couple of years, any online banking service has become accessible only from mobile phones and that your bank asks you for permission, if it is a polite bank, to know where you are, which it already knows very well. And it is normal that whatever new app, in addition to those that are entered without your permission, ask you during installation “full control of your device”, photos, address book, documents and so on.
Apparently, however, the essential problem is four nostalgic of Predappio, or if anything of the BR or anarchy, manipulated and financed with four pennies from royal power to keep the bogey alive, to allow us an easy discharge of conscience at the price of a post on Ig or a tweet and to make us proclaim that fascism will continue to fail while any other kind of oppression is in excellent health.
In order not to notice this it takes a hefty dose of denial. And denial is an active ingredient in countless over-the-counter brands.
Who shouts to the plot because it has to keep the mask and claims the civil right to the aperitif, to the immediate opening of everything, denies the fact that the aperitif, not the mask, is the sign of the dictatorship. Someone will laugh and think of a Savonarola revived.
So let’s put it this way.
The right to trade and the right to consume have won over everything, the pandemic makes it clear. They won on three hundred daily deaths of Covid in Italy from now to July (studio of the Bruno Kessler Foundation). They have won over culture, cinema, theaters, museums that nobody gives a damn about. They have transformed the very right to health into a form of consumerism for those who have access to private clinics and of underclass for those who have to wait their turn with theAsl.
The right to unlimited consumption and trade has destroyed urban planning. They created new classes of exploited, last the riders, and colossal black reserves. Finally, by the way, have damaged the planet in a way that many scientists consider irreversible.
Having said that, long live the anti-fascist republic and long live the workers’ day, first the exploited who earn 1800 times less of their managers.
A great first of May to all.
When it starts l’embolo predicatory, it is a sign that a vacation is needed. There hobby he can’t take more than Virus diary and viceversa. Then we also declare the “there is no Coviddi” and we go to the bar below where they do l’happy hour at € 7.50 with leftover fries from January 2020 and the Indian variant included in the price.
See you soon on these same screens, perhaps to talk about more complex things about the pandemic. For example, the football.
Long live the workers again.
