Ecco da dove arrivano quei soldi del reddito di cittadinanza. Insomma, stiamo a vedere. Dimmi una cosa, dimmi se mi sto illudendo.. Fine intervista…. Ho poi chiesto al mio amico Alex che ne pensa della faccenda.. Ben vengano vaie ipotesi moneta intera, denaro dinamico, sistema bancario senza interessi, economia del bene comune ecc. Solo a pochi bianchi viene in mente, che anche gli uomini con un altro colore di pelle, siano ora rossi, neri o gialli, possano preoccuparsi di come questo mondo potrebbe diventare migliore.
