Brazil is one of the few countries in the world that has not been able to carry out its agrarian reform. In this respect, we do not look like a country, but one of these republiquetas of bananas, commanded by some dictator in turn, who keeps the concentration of land in the hands of few - with known practices of physical elimination of those who fight for a place in the sun - with The invaluable support of paramilitary groups financed by large landowners. Our slave elite, latifundia, barley for centuries under the regime of slavery, uses all means at its disposal to prevent the democratization of access to land. As I said the other day, neither the governments of the PT coalition managed to advance significantly in this matter, because it came to power with some compromises previously agreed with this elite, which greatly limited its scope.Até more recently, new cases of massacres of workers In the countryside, including lands originally belonging to the Indians, as occurred in Maranhão.
Conflicts follow one another without the state apparatus being able to arbitrate them. After the massacre of the city of Colniza, in Mato Grosso, 04 carbonized bodies have been found in the State of Pará, probably due to the struggle for land ownership. Added to these facts, the clash between Indians and landowners in the State of Maranhão. Perhaps this is not the most opportune moment to deal with this issue, but the tendency is a worsening of this situation, motivated by the absence of State to mediate these attacks, as well as the pressure exerted by the ruralista (boi) and berlinda Support to the institutional coup materialized in the country. These groups defend the loosening of legislation that deals with slave labor in the country, as well as defend the thesis that there is a lot of land for a few Indians, that is, there is an undeniable covetousness on the lands demarcated as an indigenous reservation.
During the period in which he was imprisoned in Curitiba, the former minister José Dirceu took advantage of the readings. A good habit, there is no doubt about it. Given his familiarity with the books, he was said to be able to describe, in detail, the collection of the penitentiary. I read yesterday that he had said that in the event of a return of the Workers' Party to power, those famous reforms would have to be made anyway. Political, tax, agrarian reform and the one that deals with the democratization of the media, diminishing the power of the family oligopolies. None of these reforms, which the country so much claims, managed to pass through the governments of the PT coalition, of course, for the reasons explained above, that is, the conservative forces did not allow them. Some repairs are necessary here. The first concerns an eventuality of a return of the PT to power, something that in the political horizon seems to be impossible without a political arrangement that allows a new reissue of a class conciliation that everyone has already seen where it has occurred. Then, if such a process is re-edited, it is unlikely that we will be able to move forward with these reforms, contrary to the expectations of our former minister.
Therefore, although the former minister is correct in his conclusions about the need for these reforms, he knows that he was one of the main mentors of this class conciliation that allowed the PT to come to power, that it will not be possible to concretize it in this "space" Politically possible, especially in view of the setback that the country is going through, where the current government, in a few pennants, has made us go back decades to social advances and guarantees of individual and collective rights. The country lives under debris, in scorched earth. I do not want to be pessimistic, but in this stuffy political environment anything is possible. Unfortunately. In this scenario, the most likely is the hatching of snake eggs, such as Deputy Jair Bolsonaro - who already appears in second place in some polls - as well as "novices", as is the case of the mayor of São Paulo, João Dória Junior, today the strongest candidate among the toucans.
