(2-1-20) ITALY: President Conte Speaks a Dragon’s Words with a Lamb’s Voice– warns tech. is the “most fearsome” “pitfall” “of our time,” then promotes the development of such tech:

Italy’s beastly dialectician of a president attended the 10th yearly conference of “ItaliaCamp” (a national network of innovators), warning of technology as the “most fearsome” “pitfall” “of our time,” yet he promoted the development of such technology with the caveat that man must remain the center of the universe. The letter of the speech is abridged to exorcize the wicked spirit thereof.

Thus spake Giuseppe Conte– Italy’s Prime Minister– at the Leonardo da Vinci Airport in Rome, Italy on Saturday, February 1st, 2020:

“….[W]e must enhance… virtuous synergy between public and private and, between institutions, companies, universities and research bodies; between young adults and young people.

“Today the artistic infrastructure… can really play a great role… [W]e must also remember that the cities of the third millennium cannot be transformed or built only on the basis of instrumental values of the economy without considering also…  the use of the beauty of harmony, therefore typically human values.

“This is why… I… think again about humanism. New humanism…. places man… at the center

–Giuseppe Conte

“… ‘The school of the human’ is… the most profitable investment possible, especially in a company that will become increasingly digitized. So the increasing automation of processes, the increase in the power of infotelematic tools, the diffusion and the… prevailing dominance of algorithms is a pitfall perhaps the most fearsome of our time, and must always warn us that the human dimension— the values of human dignity— must be preserved.

“So the challenges to be overcome are not only in terms of technological innovation but also in terms of the centrality of the role of man in this constant technological evolution

“… Here is the centrality of the person…. [one of] the strategic guidelines… of our Government action… So we will have a structural plan, I assure you, for universities…”

–Giuseppe Conte

“… We have many projects that are currently on the table and waiting to be translated into concrete measures.

“A pillar of this… will be the Green New Deal, as you know we have already allocated € 4 billion to create a special fund dedicated to the energy transition, decarbonisation…

“Nobody wins alone. Nobody wins unless he first thinks about personal goals, but, nobody wins even if he thinks about collective goals, if he is convinced he can do it alone. We will need everyone’s precious contribution and President Zingaretti has given us a beautiful expression, which I like very much: “ethics of collaboration.” You see, because in collaboration there is a moral, ethical dimension when you… all … work for the collective good… [W]hen one is predisposed to this goal, well one also embraces a moral dimension and I say that the ethics of collaboration evokes… a collective responsibility… to improve Italy by making it greener, more inclusive, fairer.

“Here is what, and I finish, I deliver to you:… [C]reate better living conditions for us… [I]mprove Italy by making it greener, more inclusive, more equitable… Thanks… [I]mprove Italy by making it greener, more inclusive, more equitable… Thanks… [I]mprove Italy by making it greener, more inclusive, more equitable… Thanks…” [the Italian site repeated this phrase].”



All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast— all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s Book of Life… This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is humanity’s number. That number is 666.”

—Revelation 13:8, 18

“666 = Man, Man, Man.”

“New humanism… places man… at the center…”

Humanism (probe.org)

“…[T]he Supreme Court [in America] identified secular humanism as a religion on at least two occasions: Abington v. Schempp and Torcaso v. Watkins… In Torcaso the court spelled out that “religion” in the constitutional sense includes non-theistic, as well as theistic religion and the state is therefore forbidden to prohibit or promote either form of religion”(1) but “Charles Francis Potter, an original signer of the first Humanist Manifesto and honorary president of the National Education Association, said,’Education is… a most powerful ally of Humanism, and every American public school is a school of Humanism.’” (2)
