Danilo:

The worst thing, Miriam, is that the international press has been dealing with this pastiology with unacceptable tolerance, as if it was a normal part of the life of a country - but in fact the point is that the developed world is not worried about what happens here, in the "third world" as they used to call us. They know that these idiot thoughts are destructive to any country, but they like to express they leftist imagination in other's places where it can’t affect them.

So, the pastiology can always count with the support, or at least the negligence, of the international public opinion. It is sad, really sad.
