Although I am not taking a politics course this semester, I have a deep personal interest in politics and I wanted to figure out where to place Italian politics. This was my motivation for this vlog post.
The end result was quite different actually, I ended up realizing that politics in all the places I’ve lived in is quite similar. The details are vastly different, but all over the world, people start out with a great sense of optimism and faith in their governments but with time, as the messiness of politics takes over, the people lose confidence and seek change.
The current Italian government seems to be engaged in a lot of reform right now, and so the hope is simply that it all results in long-term positive change.
