Italy recruits 60,000 volunteers to control crowds as lockdown eases

The Italian government is preparing to recruit unemployed citizens to act as volunteer social-distancing enforcers, who will operate amongst the masses as life returns to a semi-normal state after the Covid-19 lockdown. The informants will wear a blue bib with the words ’civic assistant’ written across it and will remind people ’with kindness’ that sacrifices still need to be made.

Much like contact tracers, this occupation is not a new occupation, it's called the Gestapo.

I always thought Gestapo sounded Italian... Ok that may be too much but seriously, don't rat each other out, what happened to "we're all in this together"?

From The Monsters are Due on Maple Street: The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, prejudices – to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own for the children…and the children yet unborn. And the pity of it is… that these things cannot be confined to… The Twilight Zone
