It is difficult to say, whilst I am very critical of how our government has handled the crisis, I'm not sure they have "weaponised" language in the way that, say, Trump has. The Internet has spawned alternative narratives that have not been helpful. What are your thoughts?
Right, It is difficult to have a clear and coherent idea when the load on your shoulders (as a citizen I mean) is made up of intermittent communication between fear, self-conviction, doubts, with words that if at the beginning sounded hopeful now have an accusatory tone. By this I mean that at the beginning of the pandemic in Italy, information was conscientiously guided and we were all well informed of what was happening to us, although with a few exceptions. And those exceptions, alas, have found their place in fake news, conspirators of various kinds and deniers who are still ruling and that the conscience of those who govern us should have blocked in a peremptory way in order to avoid its widespread diffusion. The second lockdown in which we find ourselves right now is completely different from the first. Information scattered, unclear and frustrated. It seems that this second wave is our fault, of us citizens. Those same citizens who have been following rules and restrictions for months. When you don't know how to deal with something, here you are looking for the scapegoat.
