Decalogue Of The Unspeakable
Decalogo Dell'Indicibile

 

1) 90% OF HUMAN TRANSACTIONS ARE EITHER EPHEMERAL, OR BULSHIT, OR USELESS (prostitutes, drugs, theft, clich├ęs about the economy, weather, environment, religion)

 

2) THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THINGS ARE THE LEAST FINANCIALLY REMUNERATED (classical music, jazz, paintings, poets, essays)

 

3) THE DEBT CRISIS IS INVENTED TO CREATE VOLATILITY = OCCASIONS FOR SPECULATORS (if you owe me 100 and I owe you 90, how much do you owe me? )

 

4) WE'RE ALL DRUGGED (by consumerism, the economy, football, TV, fashion, pussy, fast food, the car, fear)

 

5) 75% OF WHAT WE PRODUCE IS WASTED (plastic, food, travel, investments, words, readings, energy, thoughts)

 

6) BIG BROTHER DOESN'T EXIST, AND THE BIG CONSPIRACIES ARE ALMOST ALL FALSE (things are what they are: a series of human errors, stupid decisions, lack of responsibility, and tremendous human imperfection)

 

7) GOD DOES NOT EXIST (since if he existed, he would be a bad inventor)

 

8) WE ARE TOO NUMEROUS (and there is no pleasant solution)

 

9) 99% OF US ARE COWARDS, AND THEREFORE THE LARGE CORPORATIONS WILL ALWAYS GET AWAY WITH IT

 

10) POLITICS IS NO LONGER USEFUL (everything is rigged, manipulated, predetermined, and we are grazing sheep)

1) IL 90% DELLE TRANSAZIONI UMANE SONO O EFFIMERE, O CAZZATE, O INUTILI (prostitute, droga, furto, luoghi comuni sull'economia, clima, ambiente, religione)

 

2) LE COSE PIU' BELLE SONO LE MENO REMUNERATE ECONOMICAMENTE (musica classica, jazz, dipinti, poeti, saggi)

 

3) LA CRISI DEL DEBITO E' INVENTATA PER CREARE VOLATILITA' = OCCASIONI PER GLI SPECULATORI (se tu mi devi 100 e io ti devo 90, tu quanto mi devi?)

 

4) SIAMO TUTTI DROGATI (dal consumismo, l'economico, il calcio, la TV, la moda, la fica, il fast food, la macchina, la paura)

 

5) IL 75% DI QUELLO CHE PRODUCIAMO E' SPRECATO (plastica, cibo, viaggi, investimenti, parole, letture, energia, pensieri)

 

6) NON ESISTE IL GRANDE FRATELLO, E LE GRANDI COSPIRAZIONI SONO QUASI TUTTE FASULLE (le cose sono quelle che sono: una serie di errori umani, decisioni stupide, mancanza di responsibilita', e una tremenda imperfezione umana)

 

7) DIO NON ESISTE (poiche' se esiste, sarebbe un pessimo inventore)

 

8) SIAMO TROPPI (e non c'e' soluzione piacevole)

 

9) SIAMO AL 99% CODARDI, E PER QUESTO LE GRANDI CORPORAZIONI LA FARANNO SEMPRE FRANCA

 

10) LA POLITICA NON SERVE PIU' A NULLA (tanto e' tutto truccato, manipolato, prestabilito, e noi siamo pecore al pascolo)
