Le più grandi sciagure dell’umanità sono state originate da chi ha voluto semplificare la vita pianificando il mondo.

Translation of the post of January 23

Article 18 and the workplace : the challenge of change.You can talk about today in Italy with Article 18 of the Workers' Statute (in the sense of changing it) or we are in the presence of a Moloch untouchable? I would say that in Italy there is still some freedom of speech and writing, if anything, the problem is to place the correct terms. And I from the definition of human labor.The September 14, 1981 in Castel Gandolfo, Pope John Paul II signed the Laborem Exercens, a key document for those who now want to rethink a new way of looking at work. Reread it causes shivers down my spine for the topicality of the issues touched by the Pope, issues that have been prophetically announced thirty years ago.Near the beginning of the document, it is said in paragraph 3 (cited): "... the fact that human work is a key, and probably the essential key, to the whole social question, if we try to really see the point of view the good of man. And if the solution-or rather the gradual solution of the social question that keeps coming up and becomes more complex, must be sought in the direction of "making human life more human", then the key, which is the work human, acquires fundamental and decisive. "Human labor is then analyzed from different points of view and a paragraph on 16 deserves attention here (cited): "The work is - as has been said - an obligation, a duty that man, and in this way varied of this word. Man must work for both because the Creator has commanded it to him, and because of his own humanity, the maintenance and development requires work. Man must work with respect to others, especially towards their families, but also to society, to which he belongs to the nation, which is a son or daughter, the whole human family, to which it belongs, being heir to the work of generations and with co-creator of the future of those who come after him in the succession of history. All this constitutes the moral obligation of work, understood in its broadest sense. "This in our view the reference scenario, the value scale to refer to begin to talk about reforming the world of work. Moreover, the importance of the work is such that the founding fathers made the art. 1 of the Italian Constitution, or rather the Italian Republic is founded on the job. It follows that first of all, before all else, the Government of the Republic has the duty of care to support the Republic, to re-establish it and fortify every day more and more and then first and foremost to create jobs and not to think about new forms of job loss, layoffs or other.
We come finally to May 20, 1970 Law no. 300 (SO-CALLED Workers' Statute).Remember, those who pretend not to remember, that the law was enacted after twenty years of fiery debates, both MPs in the factories (and the then popular in Italy) and in civil society. No political party in Parliament opposed the Statute, the PCI and PSIUP abstained, voted for the other. By this I mean that the current government headed by a prime minister "maturity" close not think it has a popular mandate to deal with a subject as important and delicate which is to reorganize the world of work in Italy. And above all do not have the necessary time available to make things right. The rest of the priorities of the Government and other mountains were, if anything, the residual forces this government would do better to spend it trying to engage in those actions that reduce the stock of public debt that has reached almost no return, every year, generating a mountain of interests that will be paid to new financial maneuvers using unfortunately. With regard to economic recovery and thus the growth of GDP, I do not think that they depend abolition or modification of an article of the law. Just visit the website and look at the growing line of ISTAT Italy's GDP from 1970 to 2000 to draw the appropriate conclusions.
