10th week of Covid jail in Italy.
Every day we are losing some more freedom and giving more power to the government to keep us “safe” from a virus.
Every day I look around and I see the danger of bureaucratic choices, taken without any flexibility or judgment, imposed upon the people.
People protesting or simply expressing an opinion not conforming with the government, are censored from the traditional or social media and fined for their respectful protests.
Few days ago in Milan, the owners of restaurants protested peacefully against the lock-down. The protester were fined 400 Euros each for illegal gathering. This is just an example but every day the same happens and most of the time does not even make the news.
Some people already decided to give up and suicide because they cannot produce anymore and they have no more a way to survive but are just accumulating debts.
This situation made me think about what can we do, as individuals, to keep ourselves free and not fall in the darkness of the European past.
This week the video is a little longer, sorry, but I felt the need to express my thinking in a proper way and few words were not enough.
In the video I mention an inspiring speech by Cordie Lee Williams during a protest in Sacramento, CA. Here you can watch it.
A little technical note since some people already asked me how I realized the effect on this image. Photoshop is not involved, I simply used a very nice and fun lens, the Lensbaby.
See you next week.
