Il ritorno del popolo vero

November 27, 2012 |

Parliamoci con franchezza: era tempo che non assistevamo a uno spettacolo come quello delle primarie del centrosinistra. Eravamo ormai abituati alle convention al silicone, quelle per il lancio di cosiddetti “nuovi” soggetti politici, imbottiti di facce fin troppo note sui palchi e sugli strapuntini delle prime file, di qualche personaggio costruito con meticolosa cura mediatica nel corso degli ultimi due, tre anni, di una desolante esibizione di luoghi comuni e – quel che più conta – della totale assenza del popolo. Il popolo era letteralmente scomparso, sostituito dall’equivalente postmoderno di “ommini chic e femmine pittate”. Una sceneggiata, appunto.

E’ stato invece uno spettacolo che ha allargato il cuore e ridato speranza vedere oltre tre milioni di persone comuni, di persone vere, pazientemente in fila per ore: non per esserci e farsi vedere, per poter esibire il futuro titolo di “sansepolcrista” della terza o quarta repubblica (quanta grazia, ci accontenteremmo di veder funzionare quella attuale. No, semplicemente per portare il proprio contribuito non di gonzi plaudenti e passivi ma di cittadini attivi al bene della Repubblica. Per poter dire non “io c’ero” (e mi si vede nella foto), ma semplicemente “io ho iniziato a fare”. Il popolo, come sempre, quando lo si convoca per davvero e non lo si confonde con il pubblico, esiste ancora in questa nostra Patria comune. E va reso merito al Segretario del Pd di avergli offerto la possibilità di rendersi nuovamente presente. Avran fatto bene al Pd e al centrosinistra queste primarie, ma soprattutto han fatto bene a tutti noi, che ci riconosciamo o meno nell’ancora nebuloso progetto politico del centrosinistra.
