Going public

My very first post as the website gets ready for its launch.

I’m resident in Italy, but I am not a citizen. This is no great problem, other than for the fact that I cannot stand for public office. Now for the good news … I cannot stand or public office.

Which means that I can criticise, but when they ask me why I don’t do something about it, I can reply that I would but the system won’t let me.

Still, my conference organisation Maremma.TV seeks to facilitate and encourage open political debate, without the self-censorship common to most all public meetings, where party politics suffocate policy debate.

And to show that I would if I could, I recently launched my (virtual) electoral campaign during the Bla Bla Maremma cabaret in Grosseto.

Vote me.
