Yes, but luckily Italians don't comply to the laws. If they did Italy would
be a dictatorship;-)

OK, this is the eternal gun discussion on the extropy- list, but I think it
poses important questions about the civil society (outside the state). In
northen Italy it has worked quite well, building up good institutions-
that's why northen Italy has been so successful (Lombardy is the richest
part of Europe), but in southern Italy it hasn't, it produced the Mafia, the
Camorra, and the N'drangheta.

How can a good civil society be made by the people?

Unfortunately, Italy isn't a very generous country when it comes to letting
fugitives in, so the enter illegaly. That only benefits the Mafia, open up
the country, as Italy has been in the past.
