Revolution only way out of crisis say 1 in 3 Italians

One in three (32%)  Italians believe revolution is the only way out of the crisis, and three quarters believe the rich should shoulder the greatest burden for it.

Barely over half back back ‘reforms’ as a way of tackling the current misery of recession and sky high unemployment, a new poll by Ipr Marketing has found. The poll also found that people believed that Italy would take up to three years to emerge from the economic crisis in three years and that they would be poorer 10 years from now.

Almost half of respondents (48%) began to experience concrete effects of the crisis in their daily life in 2010 and 2011 while 15% had been in a situation of economic distress before 2008.

  1. I am pleases there is a revolutionary sentiment in the Italian proletariat. However there is no revolutionary communist party in Italy. I strongly urge those with such feelings go to an internet cafe and lo onto http://www.plp.org. The PLP is in 28 countries with a political line of fighting directly for egalitarian communism. This would help avoid the pitfalls that led to capitalist restoration in the socialist world. One party , one class, one world!
