What Color is The Night? – Giorgio Agamben

The criterion set by the government to determine the color of our life is 50 “cases” out of 100,000 per week.

From a statistical point of view this is an extremely low risk percentage, equal to 0.5 per thousand.

How is it possible for that men, for a risk that remains low even if is projected for the whole year, can agree to renounce not only to their freedom, but also to everything that makes life worth living: contact with other beings human, to the gaze placed on their faces, to the memory and the holidays joyfully celebrated together?

Watchman, what color is the night?
