Re: Didn't need no welfare state

We hope that (working) immigrants can sustain (by means of
taxation) our welfare state. Otherwise our welfare state will crash
very soon.

Hooray! Let it crash, Italy doesn´t need to import slaves.

I agree, partially.
In my modest opinion <slaves> is too much expressive. They
come spontaneously (and, frequently, illegally) from very poor
countries. But, that’s true, our politicians (from left-side to
right-side) look at those immigrants just as <servants>.
Now our welfare state is based on the one to one ratio. One
worker maintains, supports one retired. This system is crashing,
because of lifetime extension. Soon this ratio will be one to two, or
one to three.
