He enjoys exploring subterranean places, reading about a host of interconnected topics, and yearns for Tradition. Western civilization is powerful, but as most powers, it is a double-edged sword.
For the West has very often been generous, building and giving free stuff for people of all horizons, putting an end to a slavery that already existed long before modern times, and our technology was eagerly adopted by peoples who showed quite willing to get more stuff while working and dying less.
However, Western power has also brought globalism and degeneracy, especially in orbiting countries who will import anything made fashionable from their more influential brethren. Brazil is just like that. In spite of its high violence rates, the country has its perks, like a strong sense of family and a high valuing of femininity in women. When you live in Brazildwelling into a safe place and having enough money is sufficient to live quite a good life. Yet the country did also import the worst.
Parties are ran with explicit policies against fat shaming. Libraries spill over with leftist BS, most of it translations of books from high-profile globalists like Henry Kissinger or Paul Krugman. And, of course, the local courts often follow current North American anti-male court politics. A striking example of this made the news recently. Atercino Ferreira de Lima Filho, a year-old divorced father, was recently released from prison after he was proven innocent.
He spent 13 years in prison because of what is now recognized by Brazilian courts as a complete lie. InAtercino and his spouse divorced. The media do not tell whether she was the one willing to divorce or not, or why exactly they have split. The couple had two children, Andrey, 8 years old, and Aline, 6. Although the divorced spouse was unable to support herself and has to rely on a female friend to give her shelter, she was awarded with both children.
Two years later, the police came to arrest Atercino at his home. The ex-wife claimed he had abused their children, who had written letters claiming they had been molested by their father.
Atercino was soon declared guilty and sentenced to a whopping 27 years in prison. Since then, Aternicino has been claiming his innocence. He never molested his sons, he said, and nothing of the sort had even happened from him. Years later, inthe older son Andrey turned Andrey proved motivated to get justice. It took two years and a lot of efforts to reopen the case.
Eventually, it pulled up to a much higher level of justice: Since the sentence was based on testimonies alone, there was not much to reexamine without asking the protagonists. And so the new trial went on very slowly, as if a working father who had been thrown in jail out of dubious accusations was a simple abstract procedure rather than an actual human being.
However, what would really speed up the process and bring justice was the implication of an NGO called Innocence Project Brazil.
