Welcome to our blog, Genzano it story
and this post, we should be concerned
- We should be concerned
Today, even in a place where people go to have good time, it is not safe to go. See what has happened in Nice France, another terrorist attack has killed 84 people plus. Today in this world we should really be concerned.
We should be concerned
Dear readers, I would have liked to have started by continuing to write
about my concerns, as I said in the last post an old man view of the world. But,
because violent events have happened in the world that are in line with my
concerns, I would like to mention them first and then we will continue to write
about our concerns, just the way I wanted to write them. You see, what has
happened in France then in Belgium and now in Nice and now is happening in
Turkey, it all has something to do with movement of people that emigrate from
one place to another, because they are not happy, and also the native people of
that region that are not happy. These violent happenings today make me
concerned, and everybody should be concerned about them. Now let us go back to
what I was going to say.
Today we should be concerned,
because there is this movement of people that could be considered like a
Biblical Exodus. You know what I mean, the Jews left Egypt to go to their
Promised Land, in their way they had many problems, one of their biggest
problems was that they had to fight the people that were occupying their
Promised Land, so, in the process many people were killed. Now that is just one
example of what happens when a large number of people move from one place to
another; of course there are many more examples if we read our human history,
but, I believe that I have explained my point of view.
We believe that there is a link here for us to be concerned. Not only in
some regions of Southern Italy, but perhaps the entire continent of Europe, as
there are too many called refugees that arrive from Africa, the Middle East and
Asia, so, as an old man I am concerned. Now, even though this looks like a
worldwide problem, I would like to tell my own country people what I see
coming. You see, today I am viewing all these happenings from the land down
under here in Australia. Now, because I am so far away, my point of view might
be different from what the people of Southern Italy are seeing, but at the same
time it is always good to have a different opinion.
What has given me the idea of writing this article the first time, it was
that I have been writing about the history of Monteserico castle, which is the
past history of this regions of southern Italy, because I come from this
region, and therefore there are lots of times that I go back to talk about it, for
one reason or another, since I am a native of this region.
Since we have written about the history of the castle of Monteserico, and
whatever has happened around this castle of Monteserico and also about Genzano
town, since Monteserico is in Genzano territory. Now having seen what has
happened in the past, our minds looks at the present times and tries to
forecast the future, we know that our human history keeps going on and at times
seems to repeat itself, we wonder now what the future holds for us; here I have
to say that there are a few negative signs for the future of this region, which
already seem to be happening, as we have said at the beginning of this post,
where the entire world seems to have problems already.
But let us go back to talk about Southern Italy, in order to understand
what I am worried about, it is necessary to know a bit more about this region
of Southern Italy and the inhabitant that have lived and are living there. You
see this region is not rich, the only thing that it is going on there is wheat
farming, and also some mixed farming for their own use; there are a lot of
small farms that would be able to sustain the native inhabitant only. We have
also to say that there are times when these small farms do not produce enough
and people have to leave the farms and go to work somewhere else, if and when
they are able to find another job, even if they have to go to another country.
You see this is the main reason why I left our small family farm and migrated
to Australia. But today the opposite is happening, people go to Italy instead
of leaving it.
Anyhow, we know that a few things might have changed since I left Italy,
but if they have changed it is not a great deal, as there are no industries of
any sort beside farming, so the way of life over there is very much the same as
it was in the fifties when I was there. As you can see from what I have said,
this region of southern Italy could not support any outside people that would
like to come there and stay there, and that is one of my concerns.
But as we have said already this would also apply to several other
regions of Italy and indeed the entire world. We really have to think about
what we need to do next, so whatever concerns I have for my native town and
Italy, they are also concerns for the rest of the word and above all the
western world, since that is the place where people are moving to.
We are going to continue to say a few more thing next time we write next
post, that we are going to call, the Italian problem of today, but I can tell
you now that this is not only an Italian problem, because it involves most of
the western world, plus other countries here and there. So, see you soon, when we write our next post.
