NEOFASCISM - Silvio Berlusconi: European democracy never has been in bigger danger...

On 8 april 2008, a few days before the elections, Silvio Berlusconi confirms that the life sentenced gangster Vittorio Mangano, who worked several years as 'horsekeeper' at the villa of Berlusconi, was a hero. Could it be that this was a message for somebody?
’Who has fear dies every day. Who has not, dies only once…’  Paolo Borselli, RIP
’Who has fear dies every day. Who has not, dies only once…’ Paolo Borselli, RIP
In his last interview(19 may 1992), judge Paolo Borsellino described Vittorio Mangano not as a little fish but as the mafia bridge('il ponte') to north Italy. This interview has only been seen on one satellite television channel so in fact nobody in Italy has noticed it(video and written version). Borsellino talks about the fact that the mafia is very interested to invest their money in the business world and tries to penetrate. Furthermore he mentions that there are more running investigations involving Mangano, Berlusconi and senator Dell'Utri (Berlusconi's right hand and co-founder of Forza Italia and several times convicted).

Two days after this interview, his colleague judge Giovanni Falcone dies in one of the most brutal bomb attacks ever. 30 meters of highway were destroyed in the 'strage di Capaci'. Two months later, Paolo Borsellino dies in again another brutal bomb attack.
A hero was murdered... 'Who has fear dies every day. Who has not, dies only once... ' was his belief.

Borsellino and Falcone were murdered in full 'mani pulite' time. In that period Silvio Berlusconi decided to dedicate himself to politics. Some party members of Silvio Berlusconi have declared explicitly that the raising of a new party would be the only escape to keep them out of jail.

Organized crime is very interested in European business(interview with Rita Borsellino) and if you control the media, you can act undisturbed. By coincidence, Silvio Berlusconi and his organization are not only interested in the Italian media but also in the European media. One of the biggest media concerns in the world, Endemol, was taken over last year by Berlusconi's company Mediaset.

If you have absolute media control, you control people's emotions like fear or anxiety. You can make people afraid of muslims, gypsies, immigrants or whatever you want. You can send the army on the streets and let people believe that they are really in danger.

In the meanwhile, there are numerous members in the Italian parliament that have been convicted or accused of mafia connections...

The EPD is more then willing to welcome Silvio Berlusconi and his party in the
European parliament.
Can Silvio Berlusconi be suspected of any ethical and political principles?
Will Europe follow the 'democratic' roadmap of Silvio Berlusconi?
