The times of tangentopoli are over but the corruption has not been smoothed out indeed it has multiplied and is done almost openly without fear of prison because even if those who commit murder in Italy, after about ten years they are out again if they are unlucky otherwise they are free much earlier, let alone for those who steal the state and, to be clear, those who steal from the state are not so different from a murderer only that they are veiled as the consequences of their actions, let’s say, are not seen directly but indirectly and are found in everyday life, for example with the very current vicissitudes created by this pandemic from Covid-19, which due to the lack of economic funds, the various Governments have cut health costs, causing tens or perhaps thousands of deaths due to the lack of adequate care because there were not enough beds and equipment in intensive care units, therefore a corrupt person is essentially a murderer if not something more, mass murderer.
