Alina Mungiu-Pippidi: Lack of civilization is more contagious than the virus | Clean Romania


A few months ago, I received a link to tender photos of Ludovic Orban, Clotilde Armand, Dacian Ciolos, Dan Barna and even Klaus Iohannis with a troll known as Marian Ceausescu, about whom I would not even know, not having a Facebook account, if he hadn’t tried to stop me from leaving the B1 studio one night at ten, taking advantage of the fact that there was no guard. I understand that his specialty is physical ambushes of this kind, in which he harasses people (including people like me, who fought with Iliescu and PSD at a time when all of the above lived quietly) with stupid questions (e.g. How much did PSD give you to…) While doing selfieuri. No problem, because I was already doing interviews in the Jiu Valley after the mining to find out why the guys broke the University, so I have a long experience with the cavemen and I know how to distinguish the real ones from mercenaries. It’s true that after 30 years you expect to see a little more evolution, but it doesn’t happen, precisely because the leaders and the trolls kiss on the muzzle and would hire the Yeti just to bring them to power.

Honestly, I thought this collection of pictures was a bad joke – so many fakes are circulating – but it looks authentic. Also on that occasion I found out that there is a person named Şoşoacă – without watching TV and without FB it takes me longer to perceive such phenomena, what luck on me, I do a thousand better things during this time. Among other things, I ask people not to send me links, especially to videos, I delete them without opening them. But there are events taking place, and even in the mainstream press, so I finally see Mrs. Şoşoacă, in front of the Nasta hospital, fighting with Vlad Voiculescu and the hospital guard.

Beyond the observation that the fine for not wearing a mask should be given immediately, a constitutional one, so not enormous, but moderate, the dignitary lady is made for television and with nothing worse or better, now that I have seen her, than heroes of the revolution Resist! like Bot or Ceausescu. Her behavior would be unacceptable, of course, but in fact it is not. It may have been in the years 2004-2016, when I evolved from miners and I could demonstrate for Roşia Montană without vulgarities and ambushes, without politicians to profit, thanks to some NGOs. and volunteers who made sure that the demonstration remained civilized. Since then, such behavior has become accepted and politicians in office today have sponsored trolling, street assaults, throwing paint on headquarters, hacking the websites of parties and NGOs we don’t like (although such acts are illegal) for a few years. Resist! he had a monopoly with Dide, Ceausescu and Bot, until George Simion and AUR rose. Of course, in the plane with protesters sponsored by Monica Macovei coming from Brussels, the demonstrators looked like civilized young people. But they sat with trolls and mercenaries every day in Victoriei Square and saw perfectly well that they were making headlines on television and speaking on their behalf, even though, being younger, they had not seen them when they had done crap for other owners. And they accepted.

It is clear that the style has caught on, and it is normal to catch on, and the ones from AUR instead of buying trolls from the market do trolling themselves and become famous, that they do it strategically, related to events, mixing good and true causes with nonsense and imposture. Democracies are normally protected by the consensus that such behaviors are not acceptable and everyone refrains from them, that if such a competition begins there is no difference between the public sphere and the communal island where stray dogs fight. The consensus was broken after 2017, and here we are. That there could be no political vandalism left only in one camp, whatever is profitable quickly makes followers.

Should I also note the complete lack of courage of Klaus Iohannis, Ludovic Orban, USR, PSD, etc. in cleaning the Romanian virtual space? As we only have the secret services to integrate in Europe, we fought to get an agency. cybersecurity with us, what to see. And as they were supposed to give us something, we chose it, although it should have refused us simply because we are the dirtiest country in Europe, there is no second place where virtual space is tainted by obscenities. and crap like ours, a sea of ​​shit that rises from the bright islands sponsored by the services of the fight against Russian or Chinese fake news. The thing is, only microbes and viruses feel good in shit, and if that’s what makes it a bit difficult to grow daisies there, the first rule for setting up a health agency is not to put it in an unhealthy swamp. Just look at how doctors and people fighting the pandemic in any European country are treated compared to the Romanian virtual space and you have clarified. While in civilized countries large social media companies are required to put things in order, see here a report by the European Parliament, or – in the case of Germany – huge investment by the state to remove the aggressive language that promotes hate on the Net, in our country. The Orban government is pouring money into the press, but is not asking it to moderate forums for vulgarity and language violence, although there is an EU-sponsored code of ethics. It is good that we have dozens of MEPs, none of whom noticed or proposed anything.

Civilization is optional for Romanians. The competition is between those who are more vulgar, more aggressive, more lacking in manners, vocabulary and logical thinking and this is how we let go of the world of caves over us again, this is how Mrs. Şoşoacă appeared, not out of nowhere. It is not the last appearance of this kind as long as there is no politician who would propose at least a minimum program for the recovery of civilization among Romanians and so many people who do not delimit themselves from these behaviors unless they are in the opposing camp.
