It is often said by Catholic intellectuals in Italy that the real truth about what happened in the 19th Century, was not il Risorgimento (the Re-rise) of Italy but the Detenzione (Imprisonment) of Italy: the imposition by foreign interests (France and the Great Britain) of a form of government which guarantees from hence forth the Italian cuture and the Catholic religion will both be attacked and destroyed and obstructed as much as possible, to make of Italy a new test ground for Freemasonry.
And COVID-19 has shown that that analysis is 100% accurate.
In a single day, all the civil and human rights guaranteed by the Italian Constitution were cancelled: the freedom of assembly, the freedom of expression, the freedom of religion, the right to work, etc.. I could go on.
The health decrees of the government went to far as to explicitly name the Catholic Mass and all other Sacraments as forbidden. It was outrageous.
The only thing more outrageous is that Bergoglio ordered the Bishops to comply without so much as a peep of protest.
Now everyone is literally under house arrest! Everyone except the illegal alien, who can roam around as he pleases or enter the country at will.
And not just the illegal alien. Any foreigner I think.
I get the sense of this when I interact with the police during the quarentine. As soon as they hear my American accent they are more deferential with me. And that is plain wrong. Italy belongs to Italians!
Italy needs a new government. Not only in the Italian sense of the word, “government”, which in a parliamentary system refers to the ruling party or coalition controlling parliament — but in the Latin sense, of a new form of government. The modern liberal democracy has show that it is neither modern, nor liberal, nor democratic. It is totalitarian, autocratic and tyrannical.
And what is worse is that all the apparatus of the State does not even bat an eye-lash. When I encounter State Police or the Carabinieri, I ask them, if their consciences can support what they are doing to the people. And they respond, “We are not allowed to talk about that”!
Oh Joseph Stalin! You are probably turning over in your pit of despair and damnation with envy at Giuseppe Conte!
