My very first post as the website gets ready for its launch.
I’m resident in Italy, but I am not a citizen. This is no great problem, other than for the fact that I cannot stand for public office. Now for the good news … I cannot stand or public office.
Which means that I can criticise, but when they ask me why I don’t do something about it, I can reply that I would but the system won’t let me.
Still, my conference organisation Maremma.TV seeks to facilitate and encourage open political debate, without the self-censorship common to most all public meetings, where party politics suffocate policy debate.
And to show that I would if I could, I recently launched my (virtual) electoral campaign during the Bla Bla Maremma cabaret in Grosseto.
