The Social Dilemma, by Luciano Nicolini

“Crocodile tears” or “wolves in sheep’s clothing”?

As everyone knows, “crying crocodile tears” means a false display of sorrow after gaining advantage from harm caused to someone else (deriving from the ancient belief that crocodiles shed tears after eating their prey).

COVID-19 and illiberal democracy, by Luciano Nicolini

Governments of industrialised countries are taking advantage of the health emergency to change many things: and not for the better

In my view, the photograph chosen for the front cover of this issue of Cenerentola, taken by Maria Elisabetta Luciani in Dubai, is significant: camels and skyscrapers, invisible workers (someone must have built those skyscrapers) and holidaymakers in the foreground.

A Debate on Socialism and Immigration

Italians First? by Luciano Nicolini 

(from Cenerentola No. 224, June 2019)

On 27 May 2019, as I was beginning to write this article, I received the following message from Davide Milanesi: 

«The Left is dead, that 19th-century Left based on solidarity: among individuals, classes, peoples; without need there is no solidarity: Henry Ford has won. As that anti-Semitic, Nazi, genius industrialist predicted, over the decades the possibility of accumulating wealth has taken the oxygen away from any idealistic impulse.

Tax Evasion

Italy Is Sinking: Fault of the "Self-employed"? by Luciano Nicolini (n°225)

In the May issue of this magazine, Toni Iero explained that “Italy’s public debt is no longer sustainable.” Continuing to cut public spending indiscriminately won’t save us from disaster. On the contrary…

I think that even the people who govern us (and those who’d like to replace them) are aware of this. So, they’re back to talking about fighting tax evasion.

Why do we yawn? by Luciano Nicolini (n°149)

The idea at the basis of this article came to me fifteen years ago. I was on holiday at a seaside resort in the south of Italy and, as I had at my disposal a terrace overlooking the sea, I decided to invite for dinner a couple friends of mine who lived in a city approximately fifty kilometres away.

Finance is Sovereign, by Toni Iero (n°98)

Holders of financial capital are the real winners in the social upheaval triggered by the so-called liberalization initiated at the start of the 1980s by Mrs Thatcher in the United Kingdom and President Reagan in the United States.

Pierre Clastres, Archeology of Violence, review by Luciano Nicolini (n°41)

(translation by Valeria Bellagamba)

On the penultimate issue of “Cenerentola”, I have reviewed the collected essays of Pierre Clastres entitled “Society Against the State”, that was recently republished by “Ombre Corte”. As I don’t like to leave things half done, I review this time the other fundamental work of this interesting author: “Archeology of Violence”, gone out in Italy in 1980 (edited by “La Salamandra”) and, more recently, in 1998 (edited by “Meltemi”).
