Dear Sir, I just touched the rear-view mirror at the traffic light – by mistake, believe me – I understand your bitterness towards me. I also understand that in the country, forgive the nation, after so much negligence, there is a certain justice, if not summary, then premature. However, before you grab that baseball bat that I see strategically placed on the back window of your car to put on my neck, I suggest you take a deep breath so I have time to tell you what happened in Genoa in the historical center. .
A craftsman with an archer’s eye leaned out of the window to urge people bickering in the street to moderate their voices, but, receiving no polite reply, took up his bow and shot an arrow that killed the Liver to death pierced the hecklers.
By invoking zero tolerance, we began to eliminate humanity and lose awareness that any loss of self-control can have fatal consequences. Even the archaic eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth considered a proportion between insult and reaction. To the many who spend their days constantly feeling like the victims of some kind of abuse, we should start by explaining that the world, in its indifference, is angry with no one. Neither do you, dear sir. So put down the baseball bat and let’s get some coffee together. Or a chamomile, which is better.
