In the interview shown above, Italian comedian turned Five Star Movement political leader describes a profound shift sweeping the globe:
This information never ceases to make the rounds: you don’t have a political project, you’re not capable, you’re imbeciles, amateurs…
And yet, the amateurs are the ones conquering the world and I’m rejoicing in it because the professionals are the ones who have reduced the world to this state. Hillary Clinton, Obama and all the rest have destroyed democracy and their international policies.
If that’s the case, it signifies that the experts, economists and intellectuals have completely misunderstood everything, especially if the situation is the way it is. If the EU is what we have today, it means the European dream has evaporated. Brexit and Trump are signs of a huge change. If we manage to understand that, we’ll also get to face it.
What does the rise of the amateur entail for our world? Let’s broaden our focus after spending the past couple of months narrowing down on domestic politics. Larger trends are at work and the cult of expertise is being significantly threatened.
Bring your questions to our open forum and join us for another lively meeting of The Amateur Society. We look forward to having you with us. Stay safe and God bless!
