Surely BMW and Mercedes-Benz are a more socially conscious choice. :wink:

Is wokeism a big deal in Italy?

It's a purely binary choice. One either hates immigrants or is woke.

Anybody who is "far-right" is no good as far as the future of a country is concerned.

People who go for the "far-right" are people who have a very limited view of everything.

IDK. It was a flippant remark.

"Meloni rejected descriptions of her politics as far right, calling it a smear campaign by her opponents"

I don't hate immigrants and I'm not woke.

She was in a youth organization which extolled Mussolini. She praised Mussolini herself. She's a nationalist. She's anti-immigration. She doesn't particularly like gay people.

There's just lots of things about her political positions which scream "right wing."

I don't like "right wing" positions because I feel like I might not survive in a "far-right" regime. I also find them to be wrong, period.

I'm not sure what's happening in the world: every country is voting in a far right government.

Including Sweden. https://blogs.lse.ac.uk/europpblog/2022 ... pens-next/

However, I can't imagine Italians would put up with soaring energy prices, rich people lining their pockets while everyone else starves etc. when it happens. They'd riot.

Plato's cycle of government ? Link to quick explanation/infographic? Sounds interesting.

Why am I not surprised you are happy about the return of fascism in Europe

Because you know I consider wokeism worse than what wokeism calls facsim.


Mhmm, because being nice to other people is a terrible way for society to be and what we really need are ruthless dictators telling us what to do and who to hate instead. :roll:
