Work in progress for the construction of the large rassemblement or open field (the wide one has been discontinued). The discussion is only between men (with the partial exception of Emma Bonino) and the cement that holds the coalition project together is 'stop Meloni'There is little discussion of political agendas, and what Calenda, Fratoianni and Di Maio might have in common remains to be seen. Observers and sociologists of politics are clamouring to point out that building a project 'against (changing the target from time to time, from Berlusconi onwards) is a mistake that does not bring votes, and notably that stating that Meloni is post-fascist -or fascist altogether- is not such a great idea, because those who are sensitive to this issue have already decided they will not vote for her, and everyone else doesn't mind. But nothing doing: onward with determination down this road.
This is not enough, the large open collector seems to have as a certain outcome closed electoral lists: apart from a few strategically placed non-eligibility mirrors, the objective is to guarantee the current guaranteed or at least as many of them as possiblesince with the reduction in the number of MPs someone will fatally stay at home. So new names in the rassemblement basically we won't see any. You can try changing the order of the factors, but the result is always the same.
Another story and another opening would be if the secretariats of the assembled parties stipulated that at least half of the candidates standing for election should be personalities from outside the apparatus, known to the citizenry for some expertise, for their commitment and for their political passion. These names would bring votes because they would ignite the interest of voters and electors and because novelty would be evident: people matter. But so far the eye of the tiger does not want to see.
Of openness on the part of the PD and the left - although feminism is historically linked to the left - we have had no signs for years. On the issues that are close to our hearts, and that go to compose an alternative horizon to trans-humanism and fatalism, we have doggedly sought a few opportunities for interlocution. Just to name one, on the Zan ddl, or on such sensitive issues as the uterus for rent. But we have only ever encountered scorn and barred doors. Open field where?
Lists with nominations must be filed by 22 August. While the supposed 'rightful claimants' are stabbing each other, mors tua vita mea, there is time for reflection. Is it not, after all, about trying to win elections?
