Brazil's New Conservative Leadership Quietly Readies Neoliberal Onslaught

Nadia Prupis, staff writer

Following the suspension of Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff last week—in what some called a coup by conservative opponents—her supporters warned that the interim government, led by Vice President Michel Temer, may use the opportunity to push through neoliberal legislation.

According to the advocacy group the Alliance of Leading Environmental Researchers and Thinkers (ALERT), they were right.

Appointing a rapacious, Amazon-destroying soya magnate, as Brazil's new Minister of Agriculture, along with the "legal" rubber-stamp approval of whatever "environmental impact statement" that rapacious extractivists purport to "justify" their ecocidal projects, are perfectly emblematic of the delusions that "elite" looters must cling to, in order to continue forward with their program of omnicide.

The omnicidal assault against ecology and humanity, is also suicidal for its proponents.

"Elites" will all die, just as surely as the rest of us, as the ecology dis-integrates under this assault.

So intensely sad and painful, to witness and experience the dismantling of the only living ecology we know of in the entire Cosmos.

Oil companies, mining companies, lumber consortiums are all jumping up and down with joy while wetting themselves as the Amazon and most of Brazil will become their very own to do with them whatever their greedy, grasping, evil minds desire...all for profit at the expense of the people, the environment, and the planet. The US and the CIA played a big role in this, to be sure...not unlike all the other regime changes throughout history in Latin America (Central and South America in particular)...all corporatist motivated/backed/funded.

The Zika virus will takes its toll sooner than later. What we see now in its proliferation is directly related to what Brazil did when it displaced tens of thousands of impoverished Brazilians by destroying their homes and building any number of stadia for the Soccer World Cup...poverty breeds illness, disease, running sewage in the streets, mounds of garbage all unseen by the tourists but infested with all manner of vermin and disease-carrying mosquitoes. And now, a mega-millionaire who will most certainly scream for austerity is in charge and inevitably do away with any and all social programs to balance the budget while giving massive tax breaks and environmental waivers to big business and the wealthy...not unlike what the Spanish and Portugues did in their quest for gold and silver.
