Berlusconism, Machiavellism and damaged democracies

The Death Of The Italian Culture

The German magazine DER SPIEGEL, No. #29, 2011/7/18, featured as main story: “BASTA.” – about Berlusconism: what I tried to discuss under the title “The Death Of The Italian Culture” – with a click upon the photo you are linked to the discussion there, supported by some Italian Flickr contacts. DER SPIEGEL introduces on his 10 pages (p.70-80) among others the philosophers Mark Lilla (Columbia University, NY), Hans Woller (Institut für Zeitgeschichte) and the Italian philosopher Flores d’Arcais. I would like to focus a while on this problems – which are actually destroying the democratic culture in Europe. You can discover a bad kind of Machiavellism not only in African or Arabian states…
