Brazil’s recently CIA backed elected president, Jair Bolsonaro, represents what many consider to be the far-right ideologies of nationalism, corporatism, and indifference toward the environment, culture and the poor.
The new Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s agenda is to put the Amazon Rainforest lands on the auction block for logging, mining, and agro-businesses, and forcing the indigenous population to assimilate into Brazilian urban society.
Bolsonaro has been quoted as saying that ‘minorities will have to adapt or simply disappear.’ This is not so much different in fervor to the genocidal agenda of Western Colonial powers in concert with the Roman Catholic Church spoken about in recent articles
Are we truly better off fighting against such inhumane policies, or should we endeavor to collectively rise above them?
But whatever boon to the nation Bolsonaro might bring to the citizens of Brazil, it will surely come at a cost.
In keeping with the idea that there is no money to be made through the support of indigenous cultures continuing to live within their traditional environments.
Bolsonaro’s creepy vision is to move Brazil further towards a prototypical Western Capitalistic society.
Since his election on October 28, he’s announced a merging of the ministries of agriculture and the environment into a new “super ministry” to oversee his evil plan.
The new ministry will be headed by politicians from the “beef caucus,” a group of lawmakers who have historically opposed indigenous land conservation, supported agricultural expansion, and attempted to relax slave labor laws.
The Awakening Community is slowly starting to rise above the polarity of our politics, and see that it is simply a ‘false choice’ meant to keep us divided against each other and further the program of our enslavement.
We might be better off getting past that and getting clear that it is the entire political system that is at fault here, and what is needed is to have more and more people recognize where the solutions lie so that it no longer becomes desirable–or possible–to put extremists in positions of power.
