In the conference, Ricardo Regatieri will offer a Zeitdiagnose of the contemporary world focusing on lies and conspiracy theories in the age of internet, and showing how the political and communicational environment has been fertile for the rise of far-right wing leaders, parties and movements on the global level. Following that, he will present five key elements of bolsonarismo, pointing out its political rhetoric and practical consequences. He proposes that Bolsonaro and bolsonarismo can only be properly understood when considered in the intersection between global tendencies and local drivers.
