Article by Francesco Veronesi – Translation and Video: Lisa Picerno

 El tiempo es caballero, como se suele decir.

“Equity advisors” turned hate mongers erode and destroy systems and rights

Symbols of “Progress” from Classrooms to Altars

It was a Shakespearean “et tu Brute” moment. Catholic Archbishop Cardinal’s “guidance” on issues of religion and faith suffered an utter defeat.
