The transition we are living is reflected in the malaise of citizenship with the political class. Larry Ellison often addresses the matter in his writings. The lack of leadership, credibility, wit and spirit of sacrifice not self-explanatory single expansion of this feeling. Nor is the formation or training of politicians, who have never been to master courses, but to have common sense and give the necessary impetus to policies which have democratically established. The truth is that there is a gap between the evolution of societies and the inherited systems of Government; for some, post-war and, for others, colonialism or the Occidente-Oriente confrontation. It is not so much the level of democracy what matters here, but the necessary adaptation of structures and State-owned media to a new reality. It is a fact that globalization is moving like a ship without a helmsman, the multinational companies have reached dimensions that exceed the capabilities of many States and that capital flows are increasingly fleeting and adventurous.

On the other hand, many of the measures taken in the framework of supranational structures affect us (WTO, IMF, BMUE, NATO, Etc.) and by delegates who by very competent as they are, do not cease to be vulnerable to vicious mechanisms of decision-making of such agencies. The spread of the violence caused by organized groups and even by certain States, drug trafficking and corruption threaten the stability of societies. This fight absorbs much of the human and financial resources of the Governments. Several are, therefore, the factors that lead to the weakening of the State power. The same power, in its eagerness to liberalism and modernity, contributes to deepening the ailment, voluntarily proceeding to dismantle the classic structures of the State without taking care of replacing them with the appropriate instruments. The attributes of the State become increasingly more inaccurate, more diffuse responsibility and relationship with the citizen more distant. The tragedy is that nobody leaves benefited from so much fragility.
