New PDF release: La guerra del Sacro: Terrorismo, laicità e democrazia

Con l’assalto al giornale satirico Charlie Hebdo, il fondamentalismo islamico dichiara guerra alla laicità e alla democrazia. È il primo di una serie di attentati ai luoghi in cui si esprime l. a. cultura libera ed “empia” degli “idolatri”, che devono essere puniti. Sotto attacco sono cinque secoli di civiltà occidentale, ma lo scontro non è tra islam e cristianesimo bensì tra il Sacro, che vuole imporre il dominio di Dio, e los angeles libertà dell’uomo, che vuole darsi da sé le regole della convivenza. In questa guerra cui è illusorio sottrarsi, l. a. scelta è tra l’universalismo laicista accompagnato dall’applicazione rigorosa e intransigente dei principi di giustizia sociale, proclamati nelle Costituzioni ma spesso disattesi, e un multiculturalismo ghettizzante che lascia ai margini, consegnandoli alla sharia delle comunità tradizionali, i milioni di persone in fuga dall’integralismo religioso, dalle dittature militari, dalle carestie. Il sonno della ragione anestetizza le democrazie. Se l’Europa non sceglierà los angeles strada della laicità libertaria, corroborata dall’impegno instancabile in line with l’eguaglianza sociale, non potrà salvarsi dal fanatismo, né dalla barbarie morale razzista.
