Da servo di Pannella a figlio libero di Dio by Danilo Quinto

For an Italian the subject is very intriguing and the book generated quite some noise in the press.

At the beginning of my reading I was a bit surprised and almost upset by the fact that the author was citing the Gospel in a book that is not a religious book.

What was even more strange is that this happened to me as I do read also religious books.
It’s like if I’ve absorbed the idea that God should not be part of the normal life hence not part of “normal” books.

The main take home from the book is a confirmation of the fact that the human beings share the same structure and have both strengths and weaknesses.
The second key point is that the power can, and very often does, corrupt.

It’s a common temptation to finger point the weaknesses of the other forgetting our own or, when not failing (yet) ourselves, believing that we resist because we’re ontologically better than the others.
