If you think that blood sports is quite an apt description for mixed martial arts, you got another thing coming. In fact, you could say that Italian politics involves blood sports. People don’t physically bleed, people aren’t beaten black and blue, but their egos go through a blender. They personally get beaten up in terms of reputation.
Italian politics is not pretty. It isn’t easy and it’s not easy to participate in, nor is it easy to witness. But it’s absolutely necessary. It’s crucial for a thriving democracy.
In a way, Italian politics is kind of like the brutal martial arts featured at IFightHard. How come? Well, first of all, nobody likes to be in a fight. Nobody likes to be tested.
Regardless, people need to be ready for that test. Otherwise, you’re just going to be taking life’s hard knocks sitting down. Who wants to do that?
IFightHard features all sorts of references and resources so you can put up quite a fight when the fight appears at your doorstep. The same applies to Italian politics.
There are all sorts of coalitions that appear, flourish, and fall apart all the time. In fact, in many cases, it seems that all of these things are going on instantaneously. You have to be ready, regardless of whether you are in the majority coalition or you’re just a one-man party.
Italian politics really boils down to strength of conviction. If you truly believe in what you say you believe in, you’ll be okay. People may laugh at you, people may be all too eager to dismiss you, but that’s just part of the game. That’s what makes Italian politics so awesome.
A lot of Americans like to take Italian politics and laugh at it. They think of it as some sort of cautionary tale. That’s pretty much the only value they see in it. This is really is too bad because this leaves a lot of the important details out.
Italian politics really is a conversation of real raw democracy. You see, democracy is all about taking different interests and different values and putting it across some sort of political grid. Different people coalesce depending on where they are in the grid. And thank goodness for Italian politics to show a real time depiction of political, social and economic interest that play out in real time.
American politics is not like that. It’s gripped by gridlock. It is often beholden to lobbyists and special interests. Not so with Italian politics.
