The democratic consolidation of Brazil and the legacy of the military regime

This article discusses the democratic consolidation of the Brazilian political culture. Thereby it reviews the literature and presents some own empirical analysis on regime preferences and understandings of democracy based on the seventh wave of the World Values Survey. The findings show that although high support of democracy can be measured, the process of democratic consolidation is still in the making because authoritarian alternatives like a military regime are continously supported by broader segments of the population.

Colonialism and Brazil: a brief analysis of the country’s involvement in the rush for Oceania

Colonialism was a political doctrine that emerged in the 16th century, based on the occupation of foreign lands by other nations. This political doctrine lasted for almost five hundred years and began to decline along with the end of the Second World War, with the long and heterogeneous Afro-Asian decolonization process. It is possible to divide this long-term phenomenon into four phases: mercantile colonialism, exploration of Oceania, colonial imperialist capitalism, and the division of the wealth and resources of the former Turkish-Ottoman Empire.

It engages with a discussion over a lack of collective self-awareness that in Brazil leads to the societal denial over its capacity to inflict harm upon itself. A partial view of reality is explored through examples of how conservatives view the military dictatorship and distributive policies, besides exploring Ab’Saber’s way of approaching these issues through the story of a German solider visiting nineteenth-century Brazil and interacting in the streets with a reality distant from that of “civilized” Europe.
