Yes, we can (Part X) - Starting from this

Domenico de Masi on Style (Corriere della Sera):

«The greatest threat facing our country [Italy] is not really public debt, GDP decline, insecurity in urban outskirts, or lack of integration of immigrants. It's rather the widespread perception of crisis that frustrates and makes us feel directionless, holding us from designing our future. When an entire nation stops imagining its own future, someone else will do it...against it.»
It reminds me of a great quote from Quinta's weblog (originally by Davide and Luigi)
«Too bad for the country that can't imagine that in 10 years' time, among its main corporations there may be some that today don't even exist.»

Any optimists out there?
