Fear of immigrants phobia: imagine it was a scam

Stories and News No. 1114 Imagine. Imagine with me. Imagine with me that it was all a fraud. Imagine that migrants did not exist. Exactly, imagine that there were no immigrants , illegal people and refugees . Imagine that those kind of strangers never really existed. Imagine that there were no arrivals and, therefore, shipwrecks too, luckily for them. That there was really no need to repel or arrest . Imagine being surrounded just by alleged rightful citizens. The only ones who you might get angry with, for what does not work in your life, from now on. Besides the much underrated yourself, of course. Imagine that there was no creature with an alien skin that wanted to take possession of your job. Imagine that outside your door there were no crowds of individuals loyal to a god unfamiliar to you who wanted to convert you to their beliefs. Imagine that none of them aimed to take possession of your lands. Of your traditions. And of your women. If they were really your

Axis of the willing: Triple Alliance 2018 deal

Stories and News No. 1113 Following the recent meeting in Innsbruck of the so-called Axis of the willing , anti-migrants ministers of Italy , Germany and Austria , here is a text inspired by the previous pacts among the same countries between the late nineteenth century and the beginning of ‘900 and the statements of the current protagonists .

Article 1 : We expect that Europe will finally return to defending the borders and the right and

African story: the voices tribe

Stories and News No. 1112 In the midst of lots of lies and fake news about who lives, or here comes, from afar, here is a declaredly fictional African story... "Grandma Ramakeele", says Ahmed, a few years old and immensely more numerous questions around the new one that awaits him on the horizon. "Where are the other tribes?" The old woman, who has always asked to be called such, simply because she does not fear words, but their bad use and abuse, look beyond the child, towards the sunset that is slowly enveloping the village and as if she were both looking, she replies: "Imagine you want to move away from here, going to meet the rest of the world. Walk with constant pace, but not in a hurry, and at the moment when your attention will be focused on the others persons you will come across on the way, whoever they are, they will be part of the other tribes that you still ignore and, from that moment, you must learn to know them." "What happens if

Right of asylum story

Stories and News No. 1111 Imagine living in a home where there is now a new guardian at the door, a public security officer, a bulwark to defend national culture. Choose the version you prefer. What matters is that today at the entrance of our common place there is him . According to his vision, by way of example, if a person with health problems knocked, even if he was suffering from the most serious illness in the world, he would be able to slam the door on his face. Someone voted him to do exactly that. Always by way of example, if a pregnant mother rang the bell at the same door, maybe a girl at the last month, one step away from the blessed new light, he would have the power to turn her back and leave her on the road. Or at sea. Someone allied with him to make him do just that. Still by way of example, in the case a child appeared on our threshold, his vulnerable age would not be enough reason to prevent him from doing the same, abandoning the young creature to his des

Solution to Italy problem

Stories and News No. 1110 "Problem," the professor announces to his students, "which is also a story, but let's see it through numbers." Because the numbers never lie *, the precious caption. "Generalizing the proportions, but not too much, imagine living in a country of ten inhabitants and that you are represented, as minors, by those who don’t have the right to vote, three units ." "Does that mean that seven decide for us?" Asks a girl. "That's right. Imagine now, always generalizing - but not too much, that on the election’s eve the main lineups in the field are the following: first, a so-called movement built on some promises, among all bringing citizens to power, in the name of honesty and transparency, as well as the discontinuity with the past. Secondly, a party aka League built on one promise among all, reducing the number of immigrants." "Considering the country of ten inhabitants ," one boy asked, &qu

Football fan’s nightmare

Stories and News No. 1109 It's evening, the couch is ready, the fridge too, as well as the drinks attached. Because there is no match without them . Players? No, those are obvious, and this is the most sensational blunder. Also shameful, I add. The beers , I mean, possibly lots of them, so that they can soothe the pain for the eventual defeat. The racist fan gains excitedly the living room and leads his indolent backside on the soft, before the cathodic altar. The astonishing huge screen, purchased by installments and not yet fully paid, is waiting to be brought to the maximum of the soccer level. He clicks the sacred button on the remote control and... What's up? Empty screen, white field, not even a reassuring green, nothing in attack as in defense, midfield absent and, above all, unprotected football goal, even more distressing scenario of a border without gendarmes. Where are them? Not the beers, gosh. Where are the professional ball kickers ? The fan trembl
