“Italy Is Collapsing…And 5 Star Is Our Last Hope”: How Young Italians Fueled A Populist Uprising

Unlike in the US, where President Trump relies on older Americans for his base of support, more than half (53%) of Italians under 35 voted for one of the two anti-establishment parties that triumphed in Italy’s March election. Their enthusiastic support explains the outpouring of anger directed at technocratic Italian President Sergio Mattarella, who called for new elections as he seemingly reached for every conceivable excuse to try and stop the two parties from forming a government, before finally acquiescing.

Young Italians have grown disillusioned with the center-left – which has clung to a status quo that deliberately favors older workers – even as their counterparts in Greece and Spain have moved even further to the left, with 40% of Spaniards under 35 saying in a recent poll that they favor the far-left Podemos and its allies, while in Greece, 41% of people aged 18 to 24 voted for Syriza in the 2015 election that brought the far-left party to power, according to the Wall Street Journal, which recently published a long-winded feature about the political plight of restive Italian youth.

Young Italians, like young people in much of the Western developed nations that comprise the EU, are convinced that they will lead lives fraught with economic turbulence, and that few in their generation will manage to achieve the same standard of living that their parents enjoyed. The marriage rate in Italy has fallen by a fifth over the past decade, according to Istat. In 2016, the last year for which data are available, Italian men got married on average at age 35 and women at 32 – two years later than in 2008. Meanwhile, the birth rate in a country that’s viewed as the cradle of conserative Catholicism has fallen to an all-time low.

Of the many statistics that point to an intractable economic malaise, the youth unemployment rate is particularly troubling: Nearly 30% of Italians aged 20 to 34 aren’t working, studying or enrolled in a training program, according to Eurostat. This comes after the employment rate for Italians under 40 fell every year between 2007 and 2014, before flatlining for three years. That’s higher than any other EU member state – including Greece, which is sporting youth unemployment of 29% – the second highest – as well as Spain’s 21%.

“Italy is collapsing and yet nothing has changed in this country for at least 30 years,” said Carlo Gaetani, a self-employed engineer in Puglia. Ten years ago, when he was in his early 20s, he voted for a center-left party that he hoped would push for economic development in southern Italy. When Italy descended into a crippling recession, he felt betrayed by the traditional Italian left-wing parties. He has seen friends struggle to find jobs, and said his own business opportunities are limited to the stagnant private sector, because commissions for the public sector are usually awarded to people with connections he doesn’t have.

Mr. Gaetani, now 33, voted for 5 Star in the 2013 election, a choice he repeated in March with more conviction. “5 Star is our last hope. If they also fail, I think I’ll stop voting,” he said.

Luckily, the older generation is well-equipped to step in and provide a modicum of financial support, thanks to generous pension benefits that have accrued to older workers. Yet this has done little to assuage the anger of young Italians, as the number of Italians under 34 living in dire poverty (aka those who can’t afford even basic goods and services) has more than doubled in the aftermath of the crisis.

The pain in southern Europe reflects a feeling across much of the Western world that the younger generation will struggle to surpass their parents in wealth and security. Half of Italians who responded last year to an online survey on jobs site Monster.com said they thought they will earn less over their careers than their parents.

Young Italians, who bore the brunt of the country’s protracted, triple-dip recession, still bear the scars that will affect their career prospects, homeownership and birthrates for decades to come.

While they share many similar characteristics, the problems in Italy are fundamentally different than in the US. Perhaps the biggest issue for young people is a labor system where people with open-ended employment contracts enjoy unassailable job security and access to benefits. Meanwhile, younger employees are getting stuck with short-term contracts generally lasting from one month to one year that carry few benefits and make it impossible to plan for the future.

Short

The Italian government introduced these short-term contracts in the 1990s to help young people enter the labor force. Italy recently adopted a revamp of its labor laws, using tax breaks to coax companies into using more open-ended contracts – which allow firms to avoid the great hassle and cost involved in firing employees. But these policies generally haven’t worked, and both the Five Star Movement and the League have capitalized on the anger at existing labor policies by promising to undo the government’s reforms, while Five Star has also advocated giving the poor and unemployed a UBI of 780 euros (roughly $900) a month.

The 5 Star Movement has lured millions of young voters with promises to roll back new labor rules, give the unemployed and poor a so-called universal basic income of €780 ($905) a month, and abolish unpaid apprenticeship contracts. Its leader, Luigi Di Maio, was a 26-year-old university dropout who lived with his parents when he was elected to parliament in 2013. Today, he is a deputy prime minister.

The League attracted a sizable portion of the youth vote by advocating for many of the same anti-establishment policies that Five Star embraced – such as canceling the country’s recent labor reforms – while also calling for deportations of African migrants who have overwhelmed Italy’s borders in recent years.

Italy’s economic problems played into young voters’ sentiments about immigration during the campaign as well, one of the animating drivers of support for the League. “We can’t host all of Africa,” said Gianluca Taburchi, a 23-year old supermarket employee from Perugia who voted for the League. “We already have our own problems. We have lots of unemployment and unsecure jobs.”

Matteo Salvini, the leader of the League who became a deputy prime minister and interior minister in the new government, promised to return hundreds of thousands of migrants to their countries of origin. 5 Star, which straddles the line on many issues, spoke of stemming illegal immigration, but stopped short of calling for mass deportations.

Now that they’ve found their way into power, the future of these euroskeptic parties will depend on whether they keep their promises. Instituting labor-market, welfare and immigration reforms is only one part of the problem. Many younger Italians are deeply distrustful of both the European Union and the euro currency – while many older Italians still view both projects as integral to maintaining a sense of European Unity and lasting peace on the continent.

Both The League and Five Star’s controversial flirtations with abolishing the euro (League leader Matteo Salvini was reportedly photographed wearing a T-shirt reading “Basta euro” – or “enough with the euro – to the chagrin of many older voters) have been popular with their base. But when directly confronted about their stance on leaving the euro, they’ve been noncommittal. The question now is: Will the Five Star and the League allow voters a chance to speak on the possibility of an “Italexit”, as the analysts on Wall Street have taken to calling an Italian departure from the European Union? Or will they stop short of threatening an orthodoxy that a growing number of Italian young people view as the root cause for their economic suffering?

Deep State Collapsing, C.I.A. Being Defanged, Shadow Government Defeat Inevitable

The Internet has changed everything,
and there’s nothing the C.I.A. can do about it.

From this point forward, dismantling the shadow government is really only a matter of execution.

Cosmic Convergence Research Group


“TPTB made a HUGE mistake when they built the Internet for themselves
and their misguided purposes.  They conceived it as the ultimate weapon
of mass deception, and means to completely control the planetary realm…
and so it is.  However, they did not realize the extent to which it could, and
would, be used against them.  Google “Rothschild” and see how their name
is now associated with every foul endeavor under the sun, both past and
present.  Ditto that for Rockefeller…Bush…Clinton…Obama…Soros…
Kissinger, etc.  Just this reversal of fortune alone has majorly taken the
wind out of the sails of their New World Order agenda.  The “genie is out
of the bottle”,
and there ain’t no putting it back in!  And that genie is coming
right for the ruling elites with the sharp sword of truth and avenging scales
of justice.

— Longtime Political Analyst & Investigative Reporter 


Here’s what really happened:

With the advent of the World Wide Web in the late 1980s, and especially the Internet in 1995, everything changed.

The entire world became digitally connected so that people everywhere could connect in myriad and diverse ways.

This exceedingly monumental development permitted every human being to have immediate access to the “global information database”.

Once this pivotal milestone was passed, the unparalleled sharing of privileged information and sensitive data began in earnest.


KEY POINT: This single info-sharing dynamic has created unlimited opportunities for people to disseminate their own radioactive truth(s).
Some of these truths are capable of bringing down corrupt governments
anywhere as well as exposing multi-century criminal conspiracies
perpetrated on a global scale.


The Internet and the Global Control Matrix

Before the Internet, it was extremely easy for the controllers of the Earth realm to maintain an information/data lockdown.

TPTB have done this for millennia with great ease and extraordinary success.  After the Internet began running at full tilt, it’s practically impossible to do so.

Even with A.I. tech-entities overseeing the net 24/7, efforts to control the release and/or flow of “classified” info is completely futile.

Now that Russia is building their own Internet, all attempts to censor the truth on the WWW are destined to fail. This is the beginning of the end of the Internet as we know it.

Because we live in the Information Age dominated and controlled by the Internet, information is power.  Hence, whoever controls the global information-processing apparatus controls the planet… to a certain extent.

However, the Global Control Matrix is no longer manageable because the Internet is incapable of being micro-managed and censored without major blowback.  In view of how the Internet interpenetrates every aspect of life especially the economy, it cannot be shut down without tremendous repercussions.

Even if Deep State flat-out seized control of the Internet, they would fail in their pursuit of total lockdown.  The CIA, NSA, DIA, FBI, and DHS already use Google, Facebook, Twitter and others — 24/7 — to enforce their Big Brother regime.  Nevertheless, they always fall far short of what are essentially unattainable objectives.

People Power

With each passing day, more people awaken to the fabricated false reality that has been continuously programmed by the agents of the power elite.

More people are currently breaking free from the control matrix—a matrix that’s literally cracking up in real time.

Because of the Internet, the digitally connected in particular have access to more truth than ever, especially if they know where to find it.

Once awakened by the enlightening truth, each human being will naturally cut a new profile in the world, within their families and their communities.

The ineluctable transfer of this newfound power to the people cannot be stopped.  It may be thwarted, or temporarily misdirected, but it cannot be taken away once received.  Once in possession of the truth, the people have effectively been set free.

Set free from what?

Earth has been set up as a prison planet for millennia.

The bars of the prison are made of lies and falsehood.  The concrete walls are made of deceit, duplicity and dishonesty.  The barbed wire is composed of prevarication and equivocation, distortion and misrepresentation.  The watchtowers forever beam disinfo, misinfo and false info in every direction, all the time.  The prison warden is an expert in the use of multiple weapons of mass deception.  The guards use double-dealing and  dissimulation at every turn.

The Internet, however, has cultivated a conducive environment whereby truth seekers the world over are easily escaping from their intellectual incarceration.

Now that populations around the globe are being liberated from the many false paradigms, they are free to seek the truth.

In fact, the Internet allows them to follow the facts and the truth to wherever it leads them.


“And the truth shall set you free.”


JFK & 9/11

Imagine how quickly the world would change were nations everywhere to know the truth about these two momentous events—the JFK assassination in November, 1963 and the false flag terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

For example, if the American people truly understood that the C.I.A. assassinated President John F. Kennedy things would change with a D.C. newsflash.

The C.I.A. Oversaw and Conducted the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy

Likewise, were the citizenry to know that 9/11 was an inside job perpetrated by rogue elements within the US government, the United States of America would change in a New York minute.

9/11: The Ultimate Inside Job And False Flag Operation

It’s now impossible for the Internet censors to suppress these and many other much more highly consequential facts of life on planet Earth.

They simply cannot control the spontaneous explosions of truth that are now occurring throughout every sphere of life.  Just look at the ongoing supernova of disclosure concerning HARVEYGEDDON.  The HARVOCALYPSE Begins!

The more that truth trickles throughout the planetary civilization, the more We the People will be empowered to take back our power.

With this crucial shift in our individual and then collective posture, people of conscience standing in their own truth will be compelled to speak that truth to power.

At the critical point, and it’s happening right now, Deep State will experience a free-fall collapse.  The C.I.A. will be terminated.  And the shadow government will lose all power to control the destiny of the American Republic.

TPTB have a Plan B

The power elite do have a contingency plan in place to preclude their unavoidable downfall.

Their highly misguided scheme is being implemented by way of their rapidly unfolding A.I. agenda.

TPTB really believe they can create an all-powerful and failsafe control mechanism using autonomous superintelligence.   Their numerous covert AI enterprises have one goal of paramount importance: that every human being will be incessantly monitored and controlled so as to prevent emancipation from the prison planet.

AUTONOMOUS SUPERINTELLIGENCE: The Mad Scientists Don’t Even Know, What They Don’t Know

In this way the elites hope to maintain their ascendancy throughout the earthly domain.

However, what these same ill-advised characters fail to realize is the following about Technological Singularity: Humanity Stands at the Edge of the AI Abyss.


Special Note:
The actual predicament directly caused by the Internet is that TPTB failed to realize that, once it was online, they could not hope to control the outbreaks of truth-telling.  How can they?  They don’t have the personnel, the resources, the time, or the necessary capacity to react to every eruption of truth that occurs on the net.  It’s quite humorous watching the net guardians try to contain the “fake news” meme that President Trump has unleashed into cyberspace.  And “fake news” is just a very accurate pejorative, not a highly classified data point capable of toppling a horde of VIPs or stopping a major war.  It’s never been so much fun watching the MSM talking heads go apoplectic on air because of the truth bombs falling all over the place.  This is the real reason why the end is very near for The Powers That Were.  They simply cannot manage, nor contain, the overwhelming and unrelenting onslaught of truth taking place all over the Internet.


Alt Media

The single greatest development on the Internet post 2000 is the emergence of the alternative media.

Variously known as the Fifth Estate and the Alt Media, this burgeoning media phenomena has completely changed the game.  The Fifth Estate Casts Its Shadow Like a Massive Mothership

The fact of the matter is that the Alt Media has become such a game-changer the Mainstream Media (MSM) has been forced to respond on a regular basis to its growing power and influence.

This unprecedented relationship is now fraught with daily battles which only serve to expose the treachery and treason, perfidy and propaganda which issues forth daily from the MSM.

Truly, the Alt Media has become the standard-bearer for truth and factual journalism.  For the first time in the Third Millennium, investigative journalism has seen a rebirth.  And inconvenient truths (for TPTB) are being spread across the planet with a single keystroke.

Much of that truth concerns the mundane sources of power that have ruled the planet from time immemorial.  The ruling families, their secret societies and orders, as well as their countless corporate entities, are being outed with increasing frequency.  These revelations alone make it very difficult for TPTB to rule in secrecy as they once did.

The bottom line here is that the world has changed in immense ways since 1995.  Although very few really apprehend the profound and fundamental effects on post-modern societies, they are beginning to manifest with a vengeance.

Conclusion

There can only be one conclusion to this quickly evolving narrative: the curtain will soon drop on the Illuminati.

When that happens, Deep State will collapse like the Twin Towers did on 9/11.  The C.I.A. will be defanged in a day and a night.  The World Shadow Government will cease to function, before it ceases to exist altogether.

Inasmuch as the Internet has completely taken over this plane of existence, it can be wielded as a double-edged sword.  While the net is being utilized systematically to take over the minds of users everywhere, it’s also being employed to reveal the inner workings of the Global Control Matrix.

Now that the New World Order agenda has been exposed as a sinister scheme to further imprison humanity, it has been halted.  The planned totalitarian One World Government can no longer be established.  World dominion by the NWO globalist cabal has been forever averted.

Editor’s Note

In spite of the many serious setbacks for the power elite, their hidden agents in Deep State will continue to attempt to overthrow Trump anyway they can.  Which is why the POTUS will be forced to exercise the military option probably sooner than later.  As follows:

Social systems in Canada collapsing under weight of hundreds of thousands of immigrants

Health care systems are collapsing.
People who have lived in Canada all their lives paying their insane tax rates throughout their working lives are now being pushed aside in favor of third world immigrants who never paid a dime into the system.
Wait times to see a doctor or a specialist are increasing exponentially while the somali born Immigration minister opens the flood gates wide to fully destroy the nation.

The social systems in Canada are beginning to fall apart under the weight of this liberal government. The health care system is just the ‘canary in the coal mine’. Everything will fall apart.

But that’s what happens when you have a Soros wang sucker as Prime Minister.
