My reply to Pompeo

Thank you for your comment. Aside from the self-congratulation that suffuses your reply, there isn’t anything like convincing argument in the face of the inconvenient evidence:

In Brazil, Major New Corruption Scandals Engulf the Faction that Impeached Dilma


Major New Brazil Events Expose the Fraud of Dilma’s Impeachment — and Temer’s Corruption

Brazil Is Engulfed by Ruling Class Corruption — and a Dangerous Subversion of Democracy


Brazil’s all-corrupt politics


A Blow to Brazilian Democracy: The Illegitimate Removal of Dilma Rousseff from Power


Noam Chomsky – A “soft coup” in Brazil´s election will have global consequences – The Intercept – out 2018


Your ‘experience’ of both Mexico and Brazil, of the strength of Brazil’s institutional safeguards against corruption, and your assertion of Mexico as a ‘failed state’ , as you present them, trumps the objective evidence? And Obrador as ‘Leftist Ideologue’ plays to an audience habituated to Anti-Left hysterics: the very bread and butter of  The Financial Times.





About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.'
