We Take our Images With Us

The attack on Italian strong man Silvio Berlusconi by Missimo Tartaglia provides us with yet another image of hate and power. Silvio new exactly what to do once the makeup of hate was applied to his serene visage. Stumbling up from his car and blanket of burly security he showed his wounds to the crowd and they cheered.

Like Mao in the Yangtze and Putin with his ongoing muscle show, Silvio had a chance to stab at the ancient code of manly power and heroism. He will rise again in three days with a new face and a message for the masses.

Missimo Tartaglia on Facebook has almost 45 000 fans at the time of writing.
