Still a shipwreck, still broken human lives as they try to reach Europe to save themselves.It happened off the coast of Tunisia this time for 43 people who died, but unfortunately there are thousands of victims of state borders and their criminal laws.The Draghi government, in continuity with previous administrations, confirms its criminal agreements with Libya, seizes NGO ships and continues refoulements: it is responsible for this terrible tragedy.States despise human life: they are letting children, women and men flee from hunger, wars and terror to die at sea. We cannot remain silent, we cannot surrender to the tragedy even if it is so great.We need to unite, to make our voices heard out of an elementary sense of humanity andLeggi Tutto

We are possibilists, not dogmatists nor sceptic, in relation to human beings and their possibility of improvement. We are confident in the vital qualities of our species but also worried about how they are distorted, neglected and even negated.Our starting point is the differentiated common humanityWe recognise some basic anthropological truths, confirmed by biology, verifiable in experience and existence. These truths are relative, like everything human, in relation to the points of view and prospects upheld by the protagonists. We have unique characteristics like all other animal and plant species. We share some of these characteristics with the remaining of the living, above all biophilia which is to tend towards life, and in particular with the closest animal species from anLeggi Tutto

Biological identity is a founding principle for human subjectivities; it is so for individuals, for rapports, for collectivities. Recognising the genders of the species and recognising oneself as part of either the feminine or the masculine gender is an indispensable premise in order to make free and authentic life choices. The feminine gender is the first beginnings of humanity as a whole, thanks to its ability to generate and to educate, starting from childhood. The fulfilment of feminine consciousness is a decisive premise to change the condition of oppression still suffered by women all around the world. What’s more: the idea and the practice of sisterhood and union between women are a basis for any kind of human betterment. These fundamentalLeggi Tutto

These modern times are overflowing with absurdities, astonishing negations, insolent falsifications. One can smile or be in stitches from laughing. But then you realize that a healthy ironic reaction is not enough. One can be legitimately outraged but even this is not enough. One can think that the stream of illogicality, and techno-illogicality, does not touch us but we then realize that it affects us even if only indirectly. Thus it is useful to go to the roots without taking fundamental universal truths for granted but, on the contrary, raising them as a high flying emblem. We are human, we are all part of the human species which is constituted of two genders: feminine and masculine. Each one of us isLeggi Tutto

What is happening in the United States is unprecedented. It is a point of no return in the crisis of sistemic democracy which is now in pieces and could soon give way to further dangers. Yesterday, during one the most important and solemn moments of their democratic ritual, the certification of the election of the new President, the whole world saw the Congress of the US give in when faced with the incursion into the Capitol building by groups of people at the command of ex president Trump who had gathered there in a few thousands. The herd of brutes which locked down the Capitol Hill for a few hours was not something that got out of hand for the retrogradeLeggi Tutto

On Wednesday January 6th 2021 some thousands of people coming from a pro-Trump demonstration which was taking place in Washington DC reached Capitol Hill and broke into it using violence. They were able do so thanks to the unusual and suspicious unpreparedness –even complicity- shown by police officers. They interrupted the Congress session that was certifying Biden’s victory. This assault, incited by Trump’s earlier appeal to his acolytes, represents a concrete manifestation of his unfounded accusations of allegedly fraudulent electoral result. Only once he found himself in a dead end -given the improvised and irresponsible characteristics of such attack, and after the adverse reactions by most of the republican establishment and Biden’s reaction, even if mild- Trump asked his “patriots” toLeggi Tutto

It is time to ask one’s self this question, after the dramatic farce of the assault on Capitol Hill. The matter goes beyond the North American borders. It concerns all countries who call themselves democratic and it has an epochal and urgent significance. Trump’s potential imitators are roaming around Europe and its surroundings: Le Pen, Salvini, Vox are just some examples not to mention Orban and Erdogan. There is a spread of “social” lies and frenzy which feed violent and conspirational fantasies of the most retrograde sectors of the population. Maniacs who would like to negate the feminine gender and to abrogate history with its traces, are gaining grounds. Male chauvinist arrogance and killings are multiplying. Armed racist or integralist gangsLeggi Tutto

It is needless to push our researches so far as to ask, why we have humanity or a fellowfeeling with others. It is sufficient, that this is experienced to be a principle in human nature. David Hume To react. Right now, before dark comes upon us, before the sun comes up again. A sudden, fast and unknown threat is spreading all around the world. We all have this epidemic menace in common and the necessary practical prevention measures are hygiene and “social distancing”. How possible is it that the necessary isolation could nurture our reciprocal subjectivities or on the contrary give rise to loneliness? How possible is it for this emergency to awaken a more radical human emergence or, on theLeggi Tutto

“Until it is only in my mind that I have the idea of good, without making it real through my actions, without upholding it as a life principle, it is not a truth in me but a mere representation”Ludwig Feuerbach The situation in which we find ourselves is difficult and strange. We have adopted some practical prevention measures which are fundamental to containing and defeating the epidemic. We have done so promptly and autonomously following medical advice. We agree with certain government measures to that extent and only to that extent. Given the methods and arguments used by institutions and the media; given the design, the priorities and the whole-picture prospects, we are now more alternative than ever, therefore distant fromLeggi Tutto

We are all worried about the local and global spread of the corona virus. We are all involved in some way: as potential victims or, above all, as main actors/ protagonists of (self) care and caution.The uncertainty and hesitation of the government in office have not helped until now. Added to the countless media news, often contradictory, anxious, inaccurate, incomprehensible and sometimes even disconcerting due to their imprecision and lack of transparency. We accept, with the due wisdom, the recent measures taken by the government in the sense of responsible behavior in everyday life. As far as we are concerned, it is what we had already suggested to our comrades and friends. However, we can’t deny the bewilderment and aversion createdLeggi Tutto
