Tornando A Casa _ [ On My Way Home ]

Rating: 5.0


Tornando a casa, nel tardo pomeriggio,
Mi è capitato di incontrare un gruppo di
Tizi ripugnanti, che felici brindavano al
Loro successo.
Tali persone corrotte, spregevoli e vili
Lodavano la bellezza della democrazia, quando i
Soldi possono comprarla, mostrando grande
Soddisfazione per come potessero piegare le leggi alla loro

Volontà, così da preservare ed estendere i loro privilegi.

_________________________ The concept of democracy is quite fuzzy in many minds.. I have traveled the years and still don't know how people think.. What does the many, the People —'Humanity'—, mean to them? Do people think to everybody or just to themselves? Generally speaking, they think themselves to be more legitimated to live and to have than the others. As a matter of fact, oftentimes people try to forget about humanity. Then a question arises: do people, ordinary people as we are, consider all to be equal in value? I’m asking, because this is the 'key' to Democracy. Do people care of everybody else as they care of themselves? Or, to put it even simpler: do people think to everybody else or just to themselves? Many people are literally self-centered: they tend to think highly of themselves, and rate the others almost naught. There are people —and not quite a few— who do not think that each of us is part of the whole. They are simply the whole to their own eyes. The concept if you damage one, you damage all should be central in a true democracy. Unfortunately, it is not in the real world. _________________________
