"The game of the lotto is the tax of fools". We are legalizing everything: abortion, euthanasia, road, prostitution, gamble … why not also legalize femicide?

"THE GAME OF LOT IS THE TAX OF FESSI". WE ARE LEGALIZING EVERYTHING: ABORTION, EUTHANASIA, DRUG, PROSTITUTION, GAME OF CHANCE ... WHY NOT LEGALIZE FEMINICIDE ALSO?

 

It seems right that a freak who kills a woman should end up in jail as once there ended up women and gynecologists who killed children with illegal abortion? If a mother who kills her child and a gynecologist do not end up in jail like a killer carries out the murder, because a man has to end up killing a woman? At most, let's entrust him to a charity and let him do some socially useful work.

Emma Bonino promoter of various campaigns against conscientious objectors

In his cabaret yiddish the teacher Moni Ovadia jokes about the speck of a stingy old Jew who insistently begged the Lord to make him win the lottery. After nagging prayers it resounds on the sky of that one shtetl an annoyed voice: «Shlomo, I also make you win, but you spend two bucks and at least buy a ticket!».

.

Many years ago, when I was a university student, the prize money of the old New Year lottery had reached five billion of the old lire. All my companions had bought at least one ticket, except me. A friend asked me why I hadn't bought one for a few lire, less than a pack of cigarettes cost. I replied: "The chances of winning are so remote that if I really win I will be lucky enough to find the winning ticket on the ground as I walk down the street".

.

Gambling it has always been a big business for the underworld, in particular for the mafia associations present in our country: the Camorra, the 'ndragheta and Cosa Nostra. The 27 June 1998 the law that makes gambling legal in our country comes into force, regulated and managed by the State Monopolies. In the following years, the Legislator intervened with other laws: In the 2005 promulgates the law n. 266 which defines the role of the Autonomous Company of State Monopolies which deals with games involving cash winnings and the contrast of the jungle of illegal sites without state authorization to operate in Italy, in particular those of video-poker online, with domicile in a tax haven and the server provider in some remote Asian country free from all the rules of the various national states. Between 2009 and the 2011 the Legislator deals with the protection of minors of 18 year old, who are prohibited from gambling under the laws 88/2009 e 98/2011. These laws have increased the penalties for those who do not comply with the necessary measures on the prohibitions imposed on minors, in particular for internet sites and gaming and betting centers. In 2012 a law decree named after Renato Balduzzi, at the time minister of health, dealt with gambling addiction, known as ludopathy, a disorder that falls within the delicate sphere of psychiatric expertise.

.

There are two currents of thought: people in favor of legal gambling argue that banning it would favor the spread of unauthorized sites and clandestine gambling halls managed mostly by organized crime. The opposites argue that the plague of addiction, gambling addiction, it can lead to the ruin of entire families, to all must be added the considerable expenses borne by the National Health Service for the treatment of compulsive gamblers.

.

It is now widespread thought that to avoid evil one must resort to evil by saying that evil is good. Let's clarify: la «grande italiana» Senatore Emma Bonino, according to the unfortunate papal definition in addition to calling abortion a "great social achievement" and complaining to the European Parliament and the International Court of Justice excessive presence of conscientious objecting doctors in our country - which is what makes it, precisely, a "great Italian" worthy of papal commendation as such -, still maintains that legalized abortion has eradicated clandestine abortion, ending the plague of the poor dying only one of septicemia under the knife of the mothers, while the rich went to Swiss clinics to have an abortion in complete safety. Why not apply the exact same logic and state that femicide should be legalized, or at least decriminalize it? It seems right that a freak who kills a woman should end up in jail as once there ended up women and gynecologists who killed children with illegal abortion? If a mother who kills her child and a gynecologist do not end up in jail like a killer carries out the murder on request, because a man has to end up killing a woman? At most, let's entrust him to a charity and let him do some socially useful work.

.

The hyperbole is evident, only the emotional blind and digital illiterate can fail to grasp the completely provocative sense, paradoxical and not least grotesque as well, misunderstanding the clear meaning and finally accusing me of having instigated femicide. And I can guarantee you that there will be no shortage of this kind of webeti who only read the title and perhaps the subtitle. Not just because i webeti they never die, but why if he had also been shot in the forehead, you can be sure that the bullet would ricochet to go and kill a poor innocent who passed by on the street.

.

But this is the logic with which for decades, starting with the law on the legalization of abortion, the Italians were drugged by that Mephistophelian party known as the Radical Party, whose emotional logic is known: why force a poor woman to risk her life under the knife of a mummy, while the rich ladies go to have an abortion in Switzerland? Yup, but the members of the Mephistophelian party, at the head of all Marco Pannella and Emma Bonino great pontifical Italian, they never answered a fundamental question: and who would it be that forces both the poor girl and the rich lady to kill an innocent human being? It is perhaps morally permissible, as well as mandatory, kill innocent and defenseless creatures?

.

Put this thought through others will follow accordingly. For example, it is known that one of the oldest professions in the world is prostitution. Whereas it cannot be eradicated, in that case let's legalize it. The same is true for the consumption of soft or hard drugs. Once prostitution and drugs are legalized, perhaps we would not have deprived the various mafias and criminal associations of a large turnover, always according to the principle of legal abortion that would have defeated the clandestine one? Basically it is simple to do, it is enough that the State - which has already become infanticide with law no. 194 the 1978 - you also become an exterminator of the terminally ill, pimp of prostitutes, drug dealer and so on to follow. Otherwise what kind of marital status, what kind of rule of law would ours be, if he denied the "right" to commit suicide, prostitution, get high? In this way the evil will cease to be evil and will be legalized becoming lawful. On the contrary, we will impose on the whores the obligation to have a regular commercial license, we will give them a VAT number with a rate of 22%, the obligation to issue customer tax receipts after customer and finally submit the annual tax return. Già me le immagino le ricevute delle mignotte con il dettaglio delle prestazioni e relativi prezzi varianti dai rapporti anali sino a quelli sadomaso. If you want I can also imagine the face of the accountant, both the whore and the customer, al quale queste ricevute saranno presentate per la dichiarazione fiscale annuale e da inserire sotto chissà quale voce di deducibilità per il cliente.

.

It will therefore be good to get a move on, in this Italic cathophobic semi-slave society of the Vatican and therefore far from reaching the levels of great civilization of the Scandinavian countries, that for some decades the happy world record of suicides and the highest rate of suffering from acute depressive syndromes have been disputed with Japan.

.

While there are plans to remedy certain problems with legalizations, few think of replacing cash with electronic money, which could be beneficial by acting as a great deterrent in a country where the Istat data of 2018 talk about 110 billions of tax evasion per year, of an underground economy equal to 192 billions and illegal activities amounting to 19 billions. Obviously, that on illegal activities is a very approximate figure, because the turnover of crime is much higher. With e-money that involves traceability, how would a whorehouse pay a whore? Soon said: or the lady has an unlikely mechanism to swipe credit and debit cards between the breasts or buttocks, or the payment would be difficult to say the least. Equally difficult for a criminal entrepreneur to pay illegally to workers without contributions and insurance coverage, in a country like ours where media are recorded 3 deaths per day at work, according to the statistical data of 2019. The same would be true for the high number of craftsmen who in the South of Italy in particular carry out bricklaying activities, plumbers, electricians, aerialist, IT technicians ... without being anywhere as individual firms or self-employed workers. And there are not a few who are currently also benefiting from grillino income of citizenship, while pocketing a few thousand euros per month in total black without paying even the shadow of a tax or contribution. With traceable electronic money, how the citizen could pay them? This is true for the plumber as well as for the freelancer with salty fees, who smilingly asks the customer: “With or without an invoice?».

.

Once the law was made, the deception was found, recites one of the best known idioms of our Italian soil. Which is undoubtedly true, in which we Italians have always been masters. However, there are limits to even the most ingenious and imaginative craftsmanship: it is in fact true that the fraudulent flair of the Neapolitan speck personified by Totò, can also manage to even sell the Trevi Fountain to an Italian-American tourist, however, not even the most whimsical of cheaters can succeed in circumventing certain anti-fraud laws, because it would be like pretending to be able to challenge the natural laws of physics. Proof of this - to give an example - are the current tests for driving licenses or those for admission to the faculty of medicine and surgery, impossible to manipulate, because they are centralized and armored by an impenetrable electronic system that makes it impossible to identify the person to be favored by the godfather on duty.

.

With traceable electronic money, how a drug dealer or a fence of stolen goods could get involved in the criminal trade? Someone thinks they could turn to their friend butcher or to the compliant tobacconist to be swiped with non-existent transactions with ATMs or credit cards? And even if it did, how, the butcher or his friend tobacconist could then give him cash in exchange, style scams on citizenship income, if there is no paper money and everything proceeds only by traceable electronic circuits?

.

We have been able to legalize abortion, we are in the process of legalizing euthanasia, we have made gambling a state monopoly and we are unable to crush tax evasion, prostitution, drug dealing and criminal circles of various kinds because according to some, electronic money would be a violation of individual freedoms and a control exercised on citizens much worse than that of George Orwell's Big Brother? But we are truly a society of schizophrenics borderline!

.

A subject opposed to electronic money he said in a stupidly provocative tone: «And you priests, how would you take offerings for churches, for charitable activities, for the celebration of Holy Masses and so on?». I replied: "Simple, with electronic money. On the contrary, it would be more convenient and practical than the small change that those large lice of many faithful put in the offering basket, forcing us to change a few kilos of coins into a few pieces of paper 5, 10, 20 cents". And I went on to explain that for us priests, members of a religious group recognized by the State as an institution of public law, electronic money, for offers and more, it wouldn't be a problem at all, rather a great and practical convenience. If anything, it would be a problem for the Casamonica family who also manage the begging tour in the capital of Italy. Or can someone imagine a petulant gypsy - or if we prefer the politically correct language a Roma - annoying passersby by asking for money with the pos at your fingertips for ATM and credit card transactions? In our churches we could easily install an electronic mechanism for the payment and collection of offerings, such as those found in all centers and places where payments can be made self-service. But we are a body of public law, not the begging circuit run by the Casamonica clan, we are neither fences nor drug traffickers.

.

Yet our glorious Republic the system for charging taxes has found it. All in all it is an older system than one might imagine: the game of the lotto, that at the dawn of the Unification of Italy a great statesman, Count Camillo Benso of Cavour, called "the tax of fools". In fact, according to the data reported in a book very interesting published in 2017 and written by Giulia Migneco and Claudio Forleo, which followed a second written by the same authors during the lockdown of Covid-19, with legalized gambling the state has cashed in 2018 the amount of 105 billion euros. An amount that ironically corresponds to what Istat indicates as the volume of tax evasion in our country, equal to 110 billion euros. The great nineteenth-century statesman was therefore right when he referred to the lot as "the tax of fools". In retrospect I add: the Italian feels so smart and entitled to evade taxes, up to not paying those taxes useful to keep the system of our welfare state in place. But at the same time she is so stupid as to run to the lottery office to pay the "tax of fools", placing himself in front of everyone on the bar table with a coin in hand to scrape one ticket after another by scratch&Vinci.

.

To gambling addiction in relation to Catholic morality years ago I dedicated a lecture at the request and invitation of the friends of the Lions Club. I don't have much to add to what I said at the time, I therefore refer to the registration of this my lecture which you can find on the Youtube channel from The Island of Patmos.

.

In our parishes and Caritas centers there are many people who come to ask for help for basic necessities, or because about to see the light or gas cut off, after squandering salaries and pensions in legalized gambling. To many of my brothers with a tender heart who have repeatedly told me “how can you not help them?», I replied that giving any kind of help to someone with gambling addiction is like buying drugs for a drug addict in withdrawal, how to pay a prostitute's services to a sex addict. It is not charity, but pure unconsciousness. Above all it is evil that is added to the much evil that these subjects bring to themselves and their families. Affected by gambling addiction, after having bled to death for having paid "the tax of fools", it must be said in a severe tone and almost always with an ugly face: that you also turn off the light or the gas, that you also have difficulty shopping and eating, I do not care and must not care, least of all take pity. The only help I can give you and which in conscience I am required to give you, is to refer you to a good psychiatrist who can cure you of this dangerous addiction.

.

It is a huge sadness see elderly retirees come out of tobacconists with scratch lines&win and then go shortly after to the Caritas center to ask for some shopping. Equally sad to see lines of people, young and old, including many fathers and mothers of families, burning sums of money for unlikely number systems, while the mega billboard shows the stratospheric sum of the prize pool written in large letters, which as of today is equal to 259.600.000 Euro. Figure in front of which tax evaders suffering from gambling addiction who justify their frauds to the state by taking shelter behind the finger of "I don't pay politicians' wages with my taxes", they don't even realize that taxes are paying them the worst way, like perfect fools, coupon behind coupon, scratch cards&win by scratch&Vinci. In addition to the fact that the much recriminated salary of politicians, in the pockets of the general state budget is equivalent to a few euros in our pockets, although it has always been the excuse and the ridiculous finger behind which small and large tax evaders shelter.

.

If the prize pool has reached that figure, some have wondered how much is the far greater sum raised with the bets by the State Monopolies? It is not easy to live in a country where abortion is considered "an acquired right" and a "great social achievement", where it is believed that euthanasia is "an act of humanity towards a poor terminally ill person", where the state makes money on gambling, to which on the one hand it instigates, on the other hand, it invites us to be cautious because "gambling can be addictive". But, a traceable electronic money that would deal a fatal blow to organized crime, to drug dealing, to prostitution, to illegal work, tax evasion and so on to follow, that no, because it would be a serious injury to personal freedoms.

.

The Italian People has a very strange concept of "right" and "freedom", instigated as he is to scratch in the hope of winning, with a state that puts its conscience at peace by warning that "gambling can be addictive" and that it will soon give us euthanasia, same-sex marriage, the possibility of adopting children for gay and lesbian couples, free drugs and many other wonderful rights linked to genuine aberrations transformed into good according to the law.

    Se è lecito a una madre uccidere la propria creatura nel proprio grembo, cosa impedisce qualsiasi abominio? Questo era già stato grossomodo il pensiero espresso da Madre Teresa. So, Yes: perché un femminicida deve essere punito e una persona che procura aborto no? D’altronde circa nel 50% dei casi un aborto non è un femminicidio? Eh, ma non si puó dire. E invece è giunta l’ora di gridare dai tetti che l’aborto è un abominio, che l’aborto è il più attive degli omicidi, e che una persona è tale dal momento del concepimento. Io sono io dal momento del concepimento, non una settimana dopo, quaranta giorni dopo, o qualche mese dopo. Se mi madre mi avesse abortito a una settimana, a quaranta giorni, a qualche mese o anche solo cin la pillola del giorno dopo, semplicemente io non sarei qui perché sarei morto!

      Dear Orenzo,

      the Holy Father did not know – e tutt’oggi non conosce benela complessa storia della politica italiana, this is a fact, per il quale non sarebbe giusto imputargli colpe.

      Se invece vogliamo attribuirgli delle responsabilità tutte quante sue dirette, possiamo imputargli di essersi circondato di persone che sono risultati nel corso degli anni consiglieri mediocri e affetti da spirito vanesio, pronti ad adulare, a gridareviva il migrantema senza un barlume di coraggio necessario a dire all’occorrenza: “Holiness, This is wrong … questo è pericolosoquesto finirebbe col dare vita a un vespaio per questo e quest’altro motivo …”. Il delicato ruolo di un consigliere è questo, non certo fare il ruffiano al gridoi poveri avanti a tuttonella spasmodica attesa che gli cada in testa una berretta rossa.

      E tutti questi sono fatti e dati oggettivi che nessuno dovrebbe negare.

      Qualcuno di questi consiglieri maldestri gli avrà suggerito quella frase, senza che il Santo Padre potesse neppure immaginare le gravi ferite inferte da un personaggio come Emma Bonino alla società italiana, essendo appunto strettamente legata alla storia della società e della politica italiana, che di certo il Santo Padre non ha avuto modo di vivere e conoscere.

      A questo si aggiunga la cattiveria, di fatto oggettiva, con la quale sia lei che Marco Pannella hanno attaccato per anni e anni il mondo cattolico colpevole a loro dire di non riconoscere quanto meravigliosa fosse lagrande conquista sociale dell’aborto”, al punto da portare avanti ripetute campagneno Vatican no Taliban”, o a issare cartelloni con su scrittoregalate al Papa un manuale di istologia!”, riferito al Santo Pontefice Giovanni Paolo II.

      For me personally, io prego che dopo questo legittimo successore del Beato Apostolo Pietro, al quale dobbiamo a prescindere filiale rispetto e devota obbedienza, il prossimo legittimo successore sia dotato di più sapienza e prudenza, almeno quanto basta a non circondarsi di ruffiani delinquenti.
