We continue our Latin American tour of 2019 and focus our attention on the new fascistic government of Bolsonaro in Brazil. Joining us is Fabio Durao, professor of Literary Theory from the University of Campinas in Sao Paulo! We go over the modern political history of Brazil, the recent elections, the endless absurdities of Bolsonaro vis a vis other authoritarian and right-wing governments like Trump and Duterte, the uselessness of Liberal moral outrage as well as the true agenda of this government to annihilate social security and bring Brazil back into a destitute, 19th century economy and culture.

For a quick and quite hilarious take, check out this extensive summary of recent Brazilian political history:
