  Gomorra [Once upon every time in Naples]
Roberto Saviano was born in 1979 in Naples. Recently he published his book
Gomorra. Journey in the economical empire and in the dream of
camorra domination.
Over the last days he received harsh threats from the Camorra. The threats forced the prefect of Caserta to have Roberto move away from Naples, and to ask for a protection program.
Yes. Naples is beautiful. Rough too.

Questo sito nasce dalla voglia di esprimere Solidarietà a Roberto Saviano
autore del libro
"Gomorra. Viaggio nell'impero economico e nel sogno di dominio della camorra"

Roberto nei giorni scorsi ha ricevuto dure minacce da parte della Camorra, minacce che hanno costretto il prefetto di Caserta a far allontanare Roberto dalla sua città e a chiedere un programma di protezione.

Un'iniziativa apartitca e apolitica. Roberto non deve essere considerato un martire o un eroe, ma non possiamo accettare il recinto che si è venuto a creare intorno a Roberto, un recinto legittimato purtroppo anche da alcuni organi istituzionali.

  Clandestine rendition program began during Clinton years
In The New Yorker:


-- Boeing does not mention, either on its Web site or in its annual report, that Jeppesen’s clients include the C.I.A., and that among the international trips that the company plans for the agency are secret “extraordinary rendition” flights for terrorism suspects. Most of the planes used in rendition flights are owned and operated by tiny charter airlines that function as C.I.A. front companies, but it is not widely known that the agency has turned to a division of Boeing, the publicly traded blue-chip behemoth, to handle many of the logistical and navigational details for these trips, including flight plans, clearance to fly over other countries, hotel reservations, and ground-crew arrangements.

The Bush Administration has defended the clandestine rendition program, which began during the Clinton years, as an effective method of transporting terrorists to countries where they can be questioned or held. Human-rights activists and others have said the program’s primary intent is to send suspects to detention centers where they can be interrogated harshly, and have criticized it as an illegal means of “outsourcing torture.” --

  Security is an illusion: encoding fragility
Question: Who is going to sum it all up and take it further? Who will be our spokesperson?
Answer: Why do we need a spokesperson anyway? This is just representative democracy.

Knowledge is shared within a mix of contemplation and endurance, people operate at their limit whilst engaging in anchoring dialogue. What follows is a brief example where a dancer (forth player) engages in a conversation with a programmer (third player):

We are fragile about our positions. We are inherently full of questions.
If we were all very confident we wouldn't be here.

Security is an illusion,
We have to encourage fragility,
In situations where we feel fragile, we question ourselves and learn.

We are scared of commitment, because we are not sure of our position.
We need to provide infrastructures for security.
Shall we all go to bed now?


You know Stone's 'Hidden History of the Korean War'?
