well now

Isn't that interesting? It's not often we hear from the Italians. i thought they just ate pasta and attended food stores and restaurants. You mean, they have a political structure? Phew. And that madonna-magdalene complex., that's stuff really takes it.

"Isn't that interesting? It's not often we hear from the Italians. i thought they just ate pasta and attended food stores and restaurants. You mean, they have a political structure? Phew. And that madonna-magdalene complex., that's stuff really takes it."

Not to get prissy, but as I have alot of Italian freinds, I gotta ask. Don't you think that belittling an entire country and culture (or multitude of cultures if you really look at Italy) is a little flippant? Would you have said the same about, say, Natives, Latinos, or blacks? "I thought they just ate soul food and drove Cadillacs"? Think about it.

Secondly, while it can be argued that Italy was the birth place of modern Fascism, remember that they also have a long and vibrant history of resistance as well. Not to mention one of the most radical anarchist movements in modern history.

I was being sarcastic. I didn't frame it correctly
Too bad you took it literally
I'm Sicilian. Birthplace of Mussolini
Also Pirandello who wrote a very powerful piece called "War". Have you read it?
I like the Renaissance but Hitler almost destroyed the Mediterranean in WWII. What stopped him?
When I understand the truth in Italian politics i will have learned a lesson.
Why does Italy Have this strong tendency to fascism? What is America trying to copy here?
My questions
The rest was meant to provoke a response.
I reposted these pictures of fascists marching from the Milan Indymedia and no one posted on me so i changed my name and made a lewd comment and got a response.
Are people dysfunctional?
You probably won't even return to read this.
Are people too coy?
