Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world. And for all the rest, too It’s a New Year, the perfect occasion to begin a new series entitled “Made in Italy”. Which however won’t talk about fashion, pizza or Ferrari but more practically about the true exclusive products of the current “Italy system”, that is organized crime, corruption, mental degeneration conveyed by television and genetic tendency to support fascism disguised as well-being or its illusion.

Babel fish - A mental interface between Sir Arthur's sensibility and the events from the outer world.
