Even though the Federal Police have said that there are no masters in the barbaric murders of the English journalist Dom Philips and the Brazilian indigenist Bruno Pereira, who are the actors interested in the physical elimination of opponents, defenders of nature, and the codes of social life?
"Brazil needs a Constituent Assembly (National Constituent Assembly) in 2023!" – say some sectors dissatisfied with the reforms induced in the Federal Constitution of 1988 and with the worst institutional and social results provoked.
Without virtues, vicissitudes can either occur as "alternatives" or as mere instabilities; vicissitudes without virtues run through the logic of exclusion. But what will be the political cost? Let's imagine a war in which the commanders say that they were neither wrong nor right, in the choice of means and strategies. Even if all war is unnecessary, how many people would have died, unnecessarily, by the mistakes of the command?
War is a human typology. But it's not the worst side of the human being, it's just its expression/extension. We are just that: belligerents. This may shock some, but humanity is just that: wars x wars. What varies over time are the justifications or interpretations. What does not change is the fact that war is a constant, a kind of prehistoric social fact.
What we see, abundantly, in this fascist junction between technology and the theocracy of prosperity, is the enormous appeal, commotion among worshipers, and absolute belief in mysticism simplified by memes on social networks: from Messiah, in the name, to messianism is just a step away.
Resilience implies this ability to adapt to the “emergence of the new Fascism” (the “new wild beast”), with the intention of monopolizing and exponentially using technical resources as political inputs for disaggregation, intimidation, and social and military control.
Education to overcome the current situation of denial of reality and the obvious, and of humanization itself must be endowed with a critical quality - that is, it must be based on scientificity and analytical capacity of societal involvement: on the economic, social spectrum, political and cultural – which, in turn, implies saying that it must be a broad and permanent education, not shy or buried in the "fields of training and specialization", but rather directed to the social context, that is, Ethics.
The theme of legal resistance within the State has an easy solution only at first sight – when we observe public servants (whoever they may be) acting in defense of democracy, the institutions of the rule of law, and the very security necessary for the affirmation of Federal Constitution.

According to Dr. Tainá Reis and Prof. Dr. Vinício Carrilho Martinez, "If approved, we will have the loss of indigenous peoples’ rights, constraints on land demarcation, reversion of demarcated land, and the possibility for mining exploitation. This means more deforestation, more environmental degradation. This is a destructive policy, a death policy, a genocide policy."
Edited and reviewed by Giovanna Imbernon. "The popular May 1st protests took crowds to central beaches and avenues throughout the country, soaked by the frenzy (“viva la muerte”) of denying life – obediently following the state machinery of misinformation: enough proof of the irrationality of “our” rule of law. Or we can say that political irrationality is further proof that the state of exception is highly contagious and became part of popular political culture."
