Daniele Scalea, president of the Machiavelli Study Center, spoke on Radio Radio Radio on the program "Punto & Accapo" hosted by Francesco Borgonovo. Called upon to comment on the debate over the recent news event of Giulia Cecchettin's murder, President Scalea rejected the idea that it is linked to an alleged "patriarchal society," noting instead how the education of young people is largely carried out by women and how in today's society it is more often males who remain marginalized. He also proposed that instead of introducing "sentimental education" in schools, ways should be sought to discipline violence, which is inherent in men, by directing it toward noble ends and controlled ways, rather than -- trying in vain to eradicate it -- letting it filter into evil and anti-social manifestations.
