It's barely the same thing, the US isn't the mirror of the world. You have no idea what this country has to deal with every single year. You're first world, don't forget that.
Good luck with that. America has a terrible political system were the Senate and Electoral College do not favor actual good progress.
The scary part is we probably have more protection in place than half of the countries voting these assholes into power. Even as the system is being exposed for all of its flaws.
You are correct. And I apologize. I sounded disingenuous and condescending, and I didn't mean to be. Still, I'm worried about Brazil, and I want you all to make it through this.
That's alright. Yeah, I didn't want an ultra conservative to get elected, but it happened, people chose to hear what Bolsonaro had to say after our old politicians in power ran this country to the ground, and he said what they wanted to hear just right.
South America, due in no small part to US meddling, was completely fucked for most of the second half of the 20th century. The post-WWII peace and stability was not some worldwide phenomenon.
