Italy Next? Beppe Grillo: “The Amateurs Are Conquering The World Because The ‘Experts’ Destroyed It”

Italy Next? Beppe Grillo: “The Amateurs Are Conquering The World Because The ‘Experts’ Destroyed It”, by Tyler Durden.

Beppe Grillo, leader of Italy’s Five Star Movement … has launched an assault against the government in Rome. The battle, which he says he will soon win, is taking place in Brussels, the city where he marched against Chinese steel dumping and in favour of the European steel industry.

While Grillo made the daily front pages in 2013, when his M5S, Five Star movement won the second most popular votes for the Italian Chamber of Debputies (but obtained just 109 deputies out of 630 due to an electoral system which favoured parties running in coalition), he has since faded from the spotlight. …

So, with just two weeks until Grillo is back with a bang, here is a fascinating interview with Grillo courtesy of Euronew …

Grillo’s words:

We want to govern, but we don’t want to simply change the power by replacing it with our own. We want a change within civilisation, a change of world vision. We’re talking about dematerialised industry, an end to working for money, the start of working for other payment, a universal citizens revenue. If our society is founded on work, what will happen if work disappears? What will we do with millions of people in flux? We have to organise and manage all that. …

“You don’t have a political project, you’re not capable, you’re imbeciles, amateurs…” And yet, the amateurs are the ones conquering the world and I’m rejoicing in it because the professionals are the ones who have reduced the world to this state. Hillary Clinton, Obama and all the rest have destroyed democracy and their international policies. If that’s the case, it signifies that the experts, economists and intellectuals have completely misunderstood everything, especially if the situation is the way it is. If the EU is what we have today, it means the European dream has evaporated. Brexit and Trump are signs of a huge change. If we manage to understand that, we’ll also get to face it.”

Comments ZeroHedge:

Bingo, or as Nassim Taleb put its, the “Intellectual-Yet-Idiot” class.

It is the elimination of these so-called “experts”, most of whom have PhDs or other letters next to their name to cover their insecurity, and who drown every possible medium with their endless, hollow, and constantly wrong chatter, desperate to create a self-congratulatory echo chamber in which their errors are diluted with the errors of their “expert” peers, that will be the biggest challenge for the world as it seeks to break away from the legacy of a fake “expert class” which has brought the entire world to its knees, and has unleashed the biggest political tsunami in modern history.
