After years of suffering from a dysfunctional government, Italy is on the verge of collapse. Comedian, Beppe Grillo and his Movimento win 25% of the votes and set out to revolutionize the system and install direct democracy through Grillo’s blog – the third most read in the entire world. But even as Berlusconi is toppled, hopes of a purer democracy fades, as Grillo’s tactics begin to resemble political Big Brother with fascist undercurrents.
