There are many events in 2012 that have been tracing the brighter road of global humanity. One of the brightest is the reelection of Obama who is among the most recognized in world history leaders of peace and democracy. However, there are clouds, shadows and dark curtains which either question the mechanism of socialization (shootings) or show how it is difficult to break with the dark past of mafia and corrupted networking.
A long list of mafia activities have been stored in the 2012 archive of Mafia today
Typically in 2012 the mafia actions include drugs, killing, fraud, and victimization at scales of millions dollars (Euros). There are individual or group crimes. It is interesting to point to contemporary mafia in Sicily where is difficult to obtain church records for genealogy research.
Mafia and mafia-like organizations and activities can be prevented if there is better mechanism of development of socialization process. Using genealogy for instance, in Sicily and especially of the church records for enculturation and socialization of the young people would develop values to make the young generation away from the dark road of historical mafia in this region. The genealogy records in Sicily go back to 1500s and would reveal values, connections and kinship which would increase the self-esteem of Sicilian population, a part of the great migration to the USA in later 19th – early 20th century including providing labor for the mines in Utah.
More social memory of kinship connection would mean less willing for connection for crime since by nature human is one of the brightest creators of nature.
