Scott Douglas Jacobsen: Sir, shall we finish? Italy is known for two big organizations: the Mafia and the Vatican. Although, the Vatican appears to have its own autonomous region as recognized by the United Nations with the Holy See. What is the origin of the Roman Catholic Church and the Vatican in Italy?

Dr. Giuseppe Corrente[1],[2]*: The Vatican is a state inside a state, a small state in Rome. The fact that is in Italy exercises enormous power in education, politics, government, moral in the course of past decades and in the present. The Roman Catholic Church history is fused with that of the whole Occident since the origin.

Jacobsen: What is the origin of the mafia in Italy?

Corrente: The origin of the mafia is determined by Sicilian way to dominate poor agricultural masses since 1800. Now it is diffused in all the world, but has its roots in southern Italy. It is also a way of thinking diffused in the population and not only a criminal organization.

Jacobsen: What in the heck is mobbing-bossing?

Corrente: If a hierarchical superior wants take over you, not only as an employee but in your whole life, this is bossing. It is also known as vertical mobbing.

Jacobsen: What are the Mafia offshoots in institutions?

Corrente: In many ways, but the one that mostly I have noticed is an indirect one: in the way of thinking, in the style of managing. The reflection of the Mafia in companies and institutions in this sense is above all the bossing as the main style of personnel management.

Jacobsen: What are the great companies in Italy?

Corrente: Multinationals, or their local branch, sited mainly in Northern Italy.

Jacobsen: What makes the Mafia attractive to some Italians?

Corrente: Unemployment. If Southern Italy is seen only as a way to take funding by companies and is not seen or cured by the Institutions, then the Mafia is a consequence.

Jacobsen: What are some of the benefits of joining the Mafia? What are the obvious downsides of joining the Mafia?

Corrente: Mirage of many, many money. The risk of life and to become a Mafia slave.

Jacobsen: What makes southern Italy a huge for great companies?

Corrente: In the past for the possibility of funding and the lack of control of their use. I hope this is not true for the present, but I am not sure.

Jacobsen: Any final feelings or thoughts in conclusion based on the series of interviews?

Corrente: I am very grateful for the opportunity to tell some parts of my life and of my ideas.

Jacobsen: Thank you for the opportunity and your time, Giuseppe.

*High range testing (HRT) should be taken with honest skepticism grounded in the limited empirical development of the field at present, even in spite of honest and sincere efforts. If a higher general intelligence score, then the greater the variability in, and margin of error in, the general intelligence scores because of the greater rarity in the population.
