Those who give a fuck and those who are imbeciles

by Lorenzo Piccoli

My disdain for political illiterates is really very big. I have a very poor consideration of those who do not vote, those who do not care about the news, those who do not give a fuck. Many people I know are like that and I think they are imbeciles at this regard. Let Bertold Brecht tell you why.

The worst illiterate is the political illiterate, he doesn’t hear, doesn’t speak, nor participates in the political events. He doesn’t know the cost of life, the price of the bean, of the fish, of the flour, of the rent, of the shoes and of the medicine, all depends on political decisions. The political illiterate is so stupid that he [or she, my note] is proud and swells his chest saying that he hates politics. The imbecile doesn’t know that, from his political ignorance is born the prostitute, the abandoned child, and the worst thieves of all, the bad politician, corrupted and flunky of the national and multinational companies.
