Spells To Turn Myself Intowoman


few nights ago, at the beginning of the television report, a voiceover read some excerpts of a speech given March 18, 1968, three months before being killed, Robert Kennedy, presidenzali Democratic candidate in the elections of the United States of America, from the University of Kansas. Those
few sentences I have sincerely touched intimate: I have never heard words so simple and clear but at the same time so true and far-sighted on Gross Domestic Product, one of the untouchable myths of our contemporary society, in whose name all the true human values \u200b\u200bare in the background.
so I wanted to do a little research on that speech, which I found published, along with a video on the site http://www.benessereinternolordo.net/ , within which was launched a campaign called dePiliamoci , which has already garnered the accession of numerous personalities, associations and citizens, and that today, March 18, held at the University Bari, on the occasion of the fortieth anniversary of his ruling, holding a conference to discuss the relevance of that argument.
Hoping to make something pleasant, it must publish the text and video.

There will never find an end to the nation or our own personal satisfaction in the mere pursuit of wealth, endless worldly goods in the cluster.
We can not measure national spirit based on the Dow-Jpnes, nor the successes of the country on the basis of Gross Domestic Product.
The GDP also includes air pollution and cigarette advertising and ambulances to clear our highways of carnage of the weekend.
puts GDP in counts special locks for our doors and jails for those who break them. Includes television programs that enhance the violent violence to sell products to our children. It grows with the production of napalm and missiles and nuclear warheads, also includes research to improve the spread of bubonic plague, increases with the equipment that the police used to quell riots, and that it increases when their ashes are reconstructed on the Popular slums.
GDP does not take into account the health of our families, the quality of their education or the joy of their play. Do not include the beauty of our poetry or the strength of family values, intelligence del nostro dibattere o l'onestà dei nostri pubblici dipendenti. Non tiene conto né della giustizia nei nostri tribunali, né dell'equità nei rapporti fra di noi.
Il PIL non misura né la nostra arguzia né il nostro coraggio, né la nostra saggezza né la nostra conoscenza, né la nostra compassione né la devozione al nostro paese. Misura tutto, in breve, eccetto ciò che rende la vita veramente degna di essere vissuta.
Può dirci tutto sull'America, ma non se possiamo essere orgogliosi di essere americani.

(Robert Kennedy)
