Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
the chanting religio-zombies on the street praying for eluana's family's suffering to continue must be renouncing their own sovereignty over their life and demise, possibly ending up years in a vegetable, non-sentient state themselves.

why don't they see this?

or is it because fear of going to hell when they die has terrorised them into believing this way?

blinded them to seeing that hell, in this case is right here?

politicising schiavo proved to be a major, katrina-sized mistake for the right in the usa.

i saw a poll on rai last night that showed 88% of the italian public feel this case is being exploited politically, so the electorate is not fooled (much) by pious rhetoric.

ferragamo fascism.

the ass-backwardness here continues to leave me perplexed, we have the right wanting to downsize telephone tapping for anti-criminal police activity!

i think both sides want total surveillance, except the right wants privacy for itself.


eluana is just distraction-politics, don't look at the much worse stuff to be concerned about, think about poor eluana and the murdering state that wants to martyr her. rescue her from her heartless family, thank god for silvio, riding into the rescue!

eat that, sarko
