It is a chain that can be broken but which is only talked about to add rings to rings, only managing to lengthen it.

Young people react by looking abroad. They are educated, wealthy young people, mostly children of the ruling classes. From their point of view they are right. There is less reason for fathers, mothers, even professors, who push them down this path. The Diamanti survey says that 69% of Italians between 45 and 54 think that for young people who want to make a career, the only hope is to go abroad. At school and in the family it is now a refrain: study and run away as soon as you can, everything here sucks. In some circles it is a fashion, if you don’t say that your child will go to work in America or Australia at least you are a loser.

But are we sure that this is our job as parents? Are we really sure that it is right to teach contempt for one’s country, resignation and the art of escape? On the contrary, shouldn’t we teach kids that things can be changed? That by rolling up his sleeves tomorrow could be better than today?

Without bothering the love of country, which in Italy is the stuff of the World Cup, perhaps it would be enough to stop for a moment and reflect. Work is the cement of a community, just as culture, values ​​and traditions are (of which, however, we are almost ashamed). Many generations of Italians, it is true, have had to emigrate, but they have always done so driven by hunger, with death in their hearts and with the hope of returning. Now we are instead witnessing the migration of the children of the elite, who have much less hunger and some more responsibility towards the community. But it’s a responsibility they don’t feel, because no one has ever taught them.
