contemporary civilization collapses when the majority of its
institutions, ministers and political choices and actions turn out to
be harmful to the economy, education, health, justice and social

Sergio Mattarella, President of the Republic

incompetence, falseness, lie, delirium, fanaticism, hypocrisy,
weakness, presumption, arrogance, totalitarianism and other similar
aspects are the only qualities that represent the Italian Prime
Minister and all his pool of Ministers.

Giuseppe Conte, Premier of Italy

Conte, the premier of Italy, whose arrogance and presumption clings,
as in a struggle in the mud, with his incompetence, who then in the
face of his own choices, actions and consequences, disastrous, points
the finger at the others, accuse and blame others. Here his feeling
of arrogance comes into play, at the highest levels, also calling on
the judiciary to help him fight against his own ghosts.

Conte, for these and other reasons, I would

List of forms of government

This article lists forms of government and political systems, according to a series of different ways of categorizing them. The systems listed are not mutually exclusive, and often have overlapping definitions.

Forms of government by power structure[edit]

Term Definition Examples
Anarchy A society without a publicly enforced government or political authority.[1][2] Sometimes said to be non-governance; it is a structure which strives for non-hierarchical, voluntary associations among agents. Anarchy is a situation where there is no state.

This can be a natural, temporary result of civil war in a country, when an established state has been destroyed and the region is in a transitional period without definitive leadership.[3] Alternatively, it has been presented as a viable long term choice by individuals known as anarchists who oppose the state and other forms of coercive hierarchies. These individuals typically think people should organize in non-hierarchical, voluntary

How ‘Lock Her Up’ just blew up

The “her” is Hillary Clinton. The crime for which the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee should allegedly be imprisoned isn’t clear. But the chant has become a regular part of the circus-like atmosphere at Trump rallies, a sort of calling card for the movement.

Here’s something else that happened on Thursday night: The Trump Justice Department closed its 2-year long probe into Clinton’s business dealings — including whether the Clinton Foundation received special treatment during the former first lady’s time as Secretary of State under President Barack Obama. That includes an allegation made by Trump (and some other conservatives) that Clinton had somehow steered a uranium deal to the Russians after a donation to the Clinton Foundation.

That wasn’t true then. And now an investigation authorized by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to look into potential wrongdoing by Clinton has turned up a total of zero wrongdoing of any sort by either … Read More

As Government Shutdown Persists, Americans Feel the Bite

WASHINGTON — The impact of a partial government shutdown began to ripple across the economy as it stretched into Day 17, with mortgage applications delayed, public companies unable to get approval to raise capital and thousands of Secret Service agents expected to show up for work without pay.

President Trump and congressional Democrats have made little progress in negotiations to end a shutdown that has affected about 800,000 federal workers, many of whom will miss their first paycheck this week, and who owe a combined $249 million in monthly mortgage payments, according to the online real estate firm Zillow.

The shutdown shows no sign of ending soon, with Mr. Trump announcing Monday that he would address the nation on Tuesday evening from the Oval Office to discuss what he called the crisis at the southern border, and the White House saying that he would travel to the border this week
