- RICH POLITICIANS AND WE, THE POOR PEOPLE
Europe wants to be an example for the World — everyone says. But to want and to be are different things, as the nature of things and reality shows every day, as now. EU commissioners 'take home more than €1m on leaving office' – says the Parliament Magazine on line. Read it! It's about you and you taxes, your vote, your life, the people you trust the public affairs, our fair Europe.
So, my brother european, when you asked me about the cleptocracy in Africa... I will show you a mirror – like Dorian Gray’s. It's politics public service or just a way of getting rich faster on people’s money? The answer, on the ground of ethics, é clear as fountain water. And comparing what can be compared, Sarah Gaskell says that "It is a topsy-turvy world when an unelected EU official is earning the same wage as the democratically elected president of the United States". And this is democracy! And I remember Adolfo Bioy Casares’ words: «No creo indispensable tomar un sueño por realidad, ni la realidad por locura.» Yes! The crisis… are just for the people, the poor people!
