The recent street riots in France make us reflect

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 20 dicembre 2018

The French have for some years discovered the true face of their president. A man who is arid and only worried about ingratiating himself with the powerful of the world. It is the birth of a political class, and not only French, which wants to preserve its primacy at the expense of the poorer classes. But can you govern regardless?
From this, the rulers of the various countries should be aware of this when they prepare the techniques for managing the present without looking out of the window to look beyond.
This is a serious mistake that makes us escape from reality and digs a furrow between the real country and its rulers. It is a flaw that can be paid at a high price because we make possible another conviction, in my opinion very deviant as fascinating as it is possible to do without the politics represented by the parties.
It is an idea, I must admit, that fascinates me and on which I have reflected for a long time, even though I reject it because I consider it an extremely dangerous logic capable of causing, in the long run, more damage than advantages.
On the contrary, I am inclined to believe that there may be an alternative, especially in those countries with “unfinished democracy” such as Italy, and France seems, in this sense, to want to take a parallel path, where it would impose a ” dictatorship “in time to put back those reforms that are systematically blocked by the vetoes crossed by the opposing and corporate interests between the parties involved. A dictatorship not only short-lived but bound by the presence of some institutional guarantors.
First of all, to unblock the bonds that keep some subjects close to keeping their “privileges”. On the other hand, when politicians talk about broad understandings we are not very far from a solution capable of obtaining effective results for a more correct management of public affairs without having to take into account the various types of consortia that point to the dominant thinking of those who have he wants more and more. At the same time I ask myself: but to do all this is not enough strong popular consensus and political movements well rooted in the territory but also determined not to be affected by the lobbying? In theory it is possible but in practice voters suffer too many restrictions and are distracted by the machine of misinformation that does not scruple in spreading untruthful news and such as to arouse feelings of existential distress that lead to the same degeneration of the system. In short, we have been too long accustomed to thinking with our stomachs that we can not quite manage to do so with our heads, so much so that we find ourselves in the presence of a sick democracy capable of developing anarchic feelings.

American families reflect the diversity

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 26 novembre 2009

American families reflect the diversity of this great nation. No two are exactly alike, but there is a common thread they each share. Our families are bound together through times of joy and times of grief. They shape us, support us, instill the values that guide us as individuals, and make possible all that we achieve.  So tomorrow, I’ll be giving thanks for my family — for all the wisdom, support, and love they have brought into my life. But tomorrow is also a day to remember those who cannot sit down to break bread with those they love.  The soldier overseas holding down a lonely post and missing his kids. The sailor who left her home to serve a higher calling. The folks who must spend tomorrow apart from their families to work a second job, so they can keep food on the table or send a child to school.  We are grateful beyond words for the service and hard work of so many Americans who make our country great through their sacrifice. And this year, we know that far too many face a daily struggle that puts the comfort and security we all deserve painfully out of reach. So when we gather tomorrow, let us also use the occasion to renew our commitment to building a more peaceful and prosperous future that every American family can enjoy.  It seems like a lifetime ago that a crowd met on a frigid February morning in Springfield, Illinois to set out on an improbable course to change our nation. In the years since, Michelle and I have been blessed with the support and friendship of the millions of Americans who have come together to form this ongoing movement for change.  You have been there through victories and setbacks. You have given of yourselves beyond measure. You have enabled all that we have accomplished — and you have had the courage to dream yet bigger dreams for what we can still achieve. So in this season of thanks giving, I want to take a moment to express my gratitude to you, and my anticipation of the brighter future we are creating together. (Patrick Obama)

The CPCE President congratulates Barroso

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 17 settembre 2009

Wipf: the CPCE churches continue to support the shaping of a Europe which is conscious of its responsibilities. In his letter of congratulation, the President of the Community of Protestant Churches in Europe (CPCE), Pastor Thomas Wipf, values the efforts of the President of the European Commission, José Manuel Barroso, who was re-elected today, towards dialogue with the churches and religious communities.  “In your political guidelines you speak of a crisis of values which makes it necessary to reflect on the society in which we want to live. Specifically you call for a shaping of the markets so that they are conscious of their responsibility,” he remarks. “These are particularly important topics for the churches. In recent years they have been the subject of regular dialogue between the churches and the European Commission. Here the churches continue to support the shaping of a Europe which is conscious of its responsibilities.” Wipf also hopes that Barroso will be successful, with the composition of the new Commission, “in also gaining the support of those political groups which hitherto have been hesitant in their support. Europe needs a broad common basis if it is to master the tasks facing it.”
