The president of Brazil, the very unpresentable, angry and sinister Jair Bolsonaro, whom someone as intelligent, cultured, sensitive and charming as the great Stephen Fry cataloged as one of the most disturbing types he had known, has dismissed his Minister of Culture Roberto Alvim It turns out that the friend had recorded and reelled a speech not already Nazi in the forms or content, appearance or marrow, but Nazi with copyright, National Socialist Law, taken from a speech by Minister Joseph Goebbels. Where Alvim says that «The Brazilian art of the next decade will be heroic and national. It will be endowed with a great capacity for emotional participation and will be equally imperative, since it will be deeply linked to the urgent aspirations of our people, or else it will be nothing, ”Goebbels explained that“ The German art of the next decade will be heroic, romantic, objective and free of sentimentality, national with great pathos and equally imperative and binding, or nothing ».
Almost immediately the Israeli embassy asked for the head of Alvim, because “that person cannot govern the culture of our country and must be removed from office immediately.” Of course it is not the first time Alvim does or says mocking. Bolsonaro himself has cemented his triumphs through the use of a brutal and uncivilized demagogy that aims to connect with the low passions of the crowd. Transform your ghosts, complexes, fears and uncertainties into therapeutic fertilizer and media fuel. To each anxiety the tahúres like Bolsonaro respond with tons of hate. Always remote control against the enemy, whoever it is but always at hand. A first guerrilla manual that in Spain has been imported with great success by the small groups and ideologues enmity with parliamentary democracy and that germinated in that cataclysm for illustration, humanism and beauty that we call Podemos.
Bolsonaro, who knows how to read the desires of the parish, opened the door to a nitroglycerin language that allows him to connect with evangelical fanaticism, a hotbed of votes in the growing quarter. If Alvim’s good man fell out of favor, it was not because he was exalted, that it is something that goes from his, but from clumsy. It is one thing to admire the doctrinal and operational tactics of the great propagandaists of totalitarianism and another to plagiarize speeches like Goebbels without concealing laughter. The success of the populists goes through conceiving the agora as a set and treating the citizens as viewers hooked on the drip of garbage. But from there to explain the origin and caloric content of the shit that bursts in your heads there is a stretch only within reach of the very coffee growers.
