Is there a political logic?

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?

The War – the political genetics of belligerence

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.

Bolsonaro in the Ukraine crisis: framing extractivism as a national strategy

President Jair Bolsonaro seems to be somewhat confused on how to tackle the Ukraine-Russia conflict in a way that aligns with his interests. This essay discusses his new move on framing the conflict as an opportunity to reduce Brazilian dependency on fertilizing exports. This framing resulted in the approval of urgent character for processing the lar project PL 190-2020, which will open indigenous territory for a mining concession. If the law is approved, this can put the indigenous communities in bigger threat as well as push for an unsustainable model of extractivism development within Amazon.

Education for the Polis

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.

Legal resistance within the State

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.

The ongoing (lack of) course of Brazilian foreign policy under Bolsonaro

Jair Bolsonaro's presidency marks a rupture with the century-old Brazilian diplomatic tradition dating back to the Baron of Rio Branco in the early twentieth century and the continuity of well-developed, balanced, pragmatic, and professional practices. Not only is Jair Bolsonaro the worst president in Brazilian history, but also responsible for what will certainly be acknowledged as the worst foreign policy.
