2 April 2006: A balance sheet of the Italian Right

Rereading all the articles published in this group, I realized some aspects that perhaps require a justification. The first is the recurrence of some issues in a sort of intersection of tormentoni that could appear as repetitions, but instead represent, unfortunately, the reaffirming in different eras of the same unresolved issues. One is that which concerns precisely the relationship between the cultural right and the political right, a problem posed by Ernesto Galli della Loggia in the Corriere della sera of 19 July of the current year. Galli della Loggia reiterates, like many others, that the Right does not consolidate its consensus because it has not been able to acquire a complex of common values ​​and has not been able to translate them into slogans and convey them effectively and permanently to the voters. this is an analysis that is found in our writings since the dawn, even if the fundamental values ​​of the right proposed by Galli della Loggia are very different from ours. The liberal political scientist, in fact, believes that the values ​​to be “collectivized” are meritocracy, competition, efficiency and risk, virtues that we find in “good administration” but that we do not believe can be the glue of a national community. The sense of identity, on which both social solidarity is founded, and the defense of the national interest, appears to us a common denominator certainly more solid, lasting and understandable to build a Right that, at least in consensus, wants to be popular and not elitist. although the fundamental values ​​of the right proposed by Galli della Loggia are very different from ours. The liberal political scientist, in fact, believes that the values ​​to be “collectivized” are meritocracy, competition, efficiency and risk, virtues that we find in “good administration” but that we do not believe can be the glue of a national community. The sense of identity, on which both social solidarity is founded, and the defense of the national interest, appears to us a common denominator certainly more solid, lasting and understandable to build a Right that, at least in consensus, wants to be popular and not elitist. although the fundamental values ​​of the right proposed by Galli della Loggia are very different from ours. The liberal political scientist, in fact, believes that the values ​​to be “collectivized” are meritocracy, competition, efficiency and risk, virtues that we find in “good administration” but that we do not believe can be the glue of a national community.
