The dictatorship survives. Violent practices and values touted by the military regime did not disappear with the return to democracy. The authoritarian legacy remains as a painful open sore in Brazilian society who daily manifests itself in all aspects, prisons, police headquarters, in the everyday life. Who should enforce the law, it is actually the first to break it, thanks to widespread impunity that allows the police to shoot only based on a simple and often ill-founded suspicion (hence the term accidental shooting), the politician to steal and manage public as if it were his own private interest. Brazil lives of appearances, the status of a great power, that does not have anything great, as it is devoid of infrastructure, basic services, with a public health system as the third world, a public education system adrift (as it favors private). A country full of contradictions, where 10% of the population owns nearly 90% of the wealth, where every Brazilian count 2.5 cell, but less than 50% of households are equipped with a sewerage, a reality where, side by side , living luxury condominiums and neighborhoods completely degraded (the famous favelas), in which reigns not order, violence and oppression. And all of this is the result of those long 20 years of dictatorship, which has expanded social differences today hardly bridgeable. A regime that at any cost has attempted to justify its existence and necessity, hiding behind a false parliamentary regime (dominated by the ruling party), governing through simple administrative acts which have allowed to cancel all forms of individual freedoms and to perform unprecedented violence against all opponents. Although by far, the Brazilian military regime, when compared with those of Argentina and Chile, counts with a number of dead and missing much lower, this does not mean that the brutality shown has been minor. Indeed, in this respect, Brazil has been a teacher for the neighboring countries, having sent its observers and trainers in order to ensure the advent of the new order, which did not provide any kind of opposition and of any form of organized protest. This book, which cannot be considered a traditional history book, just wants to offer a different interpretation to try to understand the contemporary Brazilian society, addressing specific issues that absolutely does not relate the temporal evolution of the historical facts of those terrible 20 years of dictatorship. We'll talk about foreign policy and how Brazil has used its diplomatic channels to hit opponents who took refuge abroad and to impose its sub-imperialist political (in the Latin American continent), the role of the Catholic Church and Evangelical and how they have contributed to the fall of the regime, feminist and student movements. We will discuss the evolution of the culture of those years, and how art is become an instrument of opposition and dialogue at the same time, the evolution of radio and television and how the regime has used the media to spread his propaganda. We'll cover the armed resistance groups, the participation in the struggle of the military rebels and how and by what means the regime has fought them. Will be addressed the taboo of the regime, the homosexual question, how the samba schools have become instrument of political propaganda and cooperation of entrepreneurs with the regime. A broad overview that addresses issues not covered in the currently texts in circulation, that deal with this topic, and allows precisely to be able to read and understand the present-day Brazil.
