Just a small reminder that it is not even a QED, but a #sevedeva, with an affectionate greeting to those who get by in exciting (for him) dialectical acrobatics on the captious distinction between mitigation and adaptation, and a warning to young people, like the nice Leone from Maccarese met yesterday by Merlino (the one who cares about others because he sensed that it's a good way to promote himself: hole the video and Elly – if it lasts – will take it): whoever tells you that normal is exceptional does it to induce you to consider the exceptional as normal. I know you don't understand it, dear young people, but there are no free lunches: youth has many advantages, it must also have some disadvantages, and one is that of understanding things afterwards. Given that it is a disadvantage, of course: many of those who arrived here later told me that they were better off before, when they lived in blissful unawareness.
