The evolution of the Mafia in Jardim-Thought
'In short, the Mafia is based on a few interconnected families, who organize themselves to simultaneously control the political and economic power, first on the island and then outside it.
It is not possible to characterise precisely whether the mafia is a phenomenon of the 'right' or of the left'. This because, its objective being power, it does not wear a political costume for the sake of ideology - which everyday life would easily demistify - but only according to what is strategically appropriate to the given historical moment.'
Jardim's description of the Mafia in the Jornal da Madeira in 1984
'We should be a Mafia in the good sense and help each other out'.
Jardim speaking to his party militants in 2007
