Don’t get me wrong, I was no fan of Berlusconi. But I am democrat enough to believe the Italian people should decide who governs them and it is not for others, let alone German Chancellor Angela Merkel, to dictate to them who shall sit in power. Yet that is exactly what is happening and without much of a murmer of dissent from our politicians. Just think about this for one moment; Super Mario Monti, the new Prime Minister, has unveiled his cabinet and guess what? There are NO politicians in it!!!
Despite reports that Mr Monti had sought to include politicians in his cabinet, there are none. “The absence of political personalities in the government will help rather than hinder a solid base of support for the government in parliament and in the political parties because it will remove one ground for disagreement,” he said.
Now, does that sound like DEMOCRACY or TYRANNY to you?
In essence, Italy will now be governed by a small group of people who owe their position and allegiance to Brussels. They have determined that the voice of the Italian people shall be mute as they do the bidding of Frau Merkel. This abrogation of democracy is cloaked by the term “technocrat” as if that is almost a favourable term. It’s not, it is simple another word for an enabler of tyranny. Freedom fades away slowly but surely and unless the people wake up from their satiated slumber, things can only get worse.
