“mafia is family.” — mafia puppet
LA NOSTRA VITA
uno | “he who is deaf, blind, and silent shall live a hundred years in peace.” follow ~o~mertà~, the code of silence, and one shall live to see the next dawn
due | one should not interfere in another brother’s business. do your own thing.
tre | one shall not engage in a battle they cannot win. play beside the Family or face the doors of hell.
quattro | be a man of honor. do not touch, see, or feel another brother’s women. respect the elders.
cinque | keep the ears and eyes open but the mouth shut. don’t sell your brothers or enemies out. face the punishments like a man of honor.
sei| have class and independence. do not beg.
sette | one shall see the doors of hell before betraying our secrets.
otto | one must never become involved with narcotics.
one shall be one of us with the prick of a needle at the base of his thumb, conjoining the blood on a burning card passed around to all.
we are men of honor and he will be our brother.
