Italian media are celebrating the ‘victory’ of the abstentionist faction at the referendum on medically assisted procreation.
I wonder: if they really represented the majority, why didn’t they go to the polling stations to vote NO ?
Would they have won?
Then, a political or ethical option has not won yesterday in Italy.
The winner is the lazy, unuseful, apolitical, unengaged, TV-corrupted section of the population.
Joined, for this occasion, by some lazy, opportunist, clerical, pavid political figures, already working to capitalise their move.
Nevertheless, 12 millions citizens considered seriously their responsabilities, voting yes or not.
This is good news.
