Watch this interview with renowned Italian journalist Roberto Saviano reacting to the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia.
Consider the intuitive reflections of one of the foremost experts on the Gomorrah about the natural relationship between corruption and organised crime and how we must start to understand this assassination in this context.
We must reflect on how our collective pursuit of wealth without effort has made us complicit with crimes we would rather not be aware of until they literally blow up in our face. How in exploiting the political and economic vulnerabilities of others for our benefit has withered our moral fiber and how the greatest beneficiaries of this amoralism will stop at nothing to perpetuate their standing, power and wealth.
Daphne Caruana Galizia was all the conscience we had left to remind us just how far our collective indifference to the distinction between right and wrong had taken us. And before she could finish her day our indifference opened up the space for those who would kill her.
