Author’s note: In a greater or lesser degree, all the signs mentioned above are happening in Brazil and in many other (democratic?) countries for years, but I will only comment on some of them, the most notorious, for the reader to realize how real is the gradual implementation of fascism.
First of all, it is neccessary to define what fascism is. Acording to Wikipedia, Fascism is a form of radical authoritarian nationalism that came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe. Influenced by national syndicalism, fascism originated in Italy in the immediate aftermath of World War I, combining more typically right-wing positions with elements of left-wing politics, in opposition to liberalism, Marxism, and traditional conservatism. Fascists sought to unify their nation through an authoritarian state that promoted the mass mobilization of the national community and were characterized by having leadership that initiated a revolutionary political movement aiming to reorganize the nation along principles according to fascist ideology. Fascist movements shared certain common features, including the veneration of the state, a devotion to a strong leader, and an emphasis on ultranationalism and militarism. Fascism views political violence, war, and imperialism as a means to achieve national rejuvenation, and it asserts that stronger nations have the right to expand their territory by displacing weaker nations.

8-Religion and government interwined

This can also be translated as “stimulating sex without commitment.” I have written about this in the article “A BIOQUÍMICA DO AMOR (Still in Portuguese)“, but I transcribe some of the text for this article for the reader to form their concepts about it if you do not have them. What happens now is that the ‘system’ through massive propaganda and dissemination of television programs that trivialize sexuality and eroticism, caused people would create neural shortcuts that lead straight to the sex. Sex without commitment. Sex without emotional involvement. Sex without affinity. Sex only by sex, i.e., people act solely by the instincts and behave like animals. Actually, worse than animals, because the animals still have a whole ritual of courtship and mating which is divinely respected.
We have often seen situations in which human rights have been systematically violated. There is much talk in humans when it comes to criminals rights, but refuses that right when it comes to people who work and contribute positively to society. On the empowerment of the police, one can easily see that when there is a demonstration or strike. The police have a very strong apparatus, both contingent (troops) and weapons to suppress strikes and demonstrations. And when they do, they usually use a higher violence than is used when it comes to common criminals. Obviously this whole police apparatus exists not to protect and defend the good citizen, but to repress it and restrains it in its fundamental rights. The police is there to restrain, contain and repress, using maximum violence, if necessary, the good citizens. If ‘someone’ ever told to you that the police function was to protect and defend the citizens, forget it. It is a lie. If you are not a complete blind, you may have even noticed it. When it comes to harass law-abiding citizens, police officers are brave, use and abuse their authority, but when it is to confront thieves and bandits, cower or pretend not to see. And then we often hear through the mass media that police officers who ‘fulfill their duty‘ by shooting some criminals, receive administrative punishments and have to answer surveys about it. So do you still have any doubt about the real and true function of the police? This is the Fascist State. See the article: THE CHIEF AND THE SHAMAN.
Also on that aspect I already wrote in the article A BIOQUÍMICA DO AMOR (Still in Portuguese), but I will transcribe a part here, to better illustrate. First, you need to take care of clothing: wear shorts, a tank top (to show the tattooed arm or shoulder), sunglasses (mirrored), a can of beer in hand. And do not forget: you must have an asshole face, if not, it does not work. To complete the trap, you need to have a car with a stupidly powerful sound system, for not playing any music. Just plug the ‘pile driver’ and let him do tum, tum, tum, tum, tum, tum, tum, tum. But how to become a complete asshole if you are already a mature man and grew up in a time when there was still ‘values’ and culture? You will have to give up all this, and the best way would be to come to terms with a neurosurgeon (in off) and ask him to remove your brain. The space resulting from surgery, should be filled with shit. That’s right, shit. Now yes, besides being a real asshole, you have shit for brains and no brain. The text in italics shows that the main objective of the Fascist State is right this: to encourage sex without commitment and imbecilization of the population through a process of deterioration of culture, music and the arts. Also shows that the Fascist State subtracted from the people what they do best, which are their moral values, their ability to build caring relationships and form families, their perception of beauty and poetry, and especially their taste for culture and the arts .
Thousands of complaints, just do a search on google and you will have the results. I have always spoken and written that “nothing is more subject to fraud than data processing.” The voter has no warranty that data being recorded are the same that were typed. There is no physical evidence, no receipt. I, who am not trained in computer science, I am a mere programmer and develop commercial applications, know that it is perfectly possible to program an application to display an information on the screen or display, while another completely different information is sent to the electronic file. And I do it in two minutes in my commercial application, if I want, of course. But the Superior Electoral Court is irreducible, does not accept even to talk about it. This is the Fascist State. There have been a printing vote project, including Leonel Brizola has always been his supporter but was duly shelved under a lot of excuses even after it have passed the Congress. Today I do not see how it would be to implement this, the Supreme Court made it ready by permanent 6-5 and if that was not enough, we still have Lewandowski who says that processes which put under suspicion the fairness of the polls are considered litigation in bad faith and should be hardly restrained. Only one huge campaign on the Internet to change, even so it will take much long, since neither ‘clean slate’ was so clean itself, is full of filth in all ranks of the three powers.
