The threat of new autoritarian goverments is real.
We saw it with the elections in Brazil. Brazil chose to become a liberal (economy) and conservative (ideology) state.
It happens because by the time the left was in the goverment there were corruption scandals that blinded all the social achievements made by the left for the people.
I was born in Brazil. I see that the major concern of the people is about security and corruption, and the alt-right seizes this opportunity to impose privatizations ,less rights for workers using the conservatorism as a cover of verticality.
They use the technique of the nazis , blame the left for all the bad that the world has.
So how we can save our people of these mistakes?
The only way is trough credibility. We need to remember history everyday. We need to show all the achievements that the left has made and still does for people’s lives and democracy. We need to show that the left of today is not the communism of the past. And we need young influencers to do this job.
People are not very open to mainstream opinion makers anymore, they want the menssage from people they can relate with.
This is why new movements grow so fast, because they are made with simple people.
We need to start a battle using knowledge, history, our achievements and our proposals. And the new proposals must show why solidarity is good for economy, freedoom and happiness for all.
And we can never forget about working people! Those people, the working class, are the most important at the moment. If we forget, then they will forget our legacy of fight for a better world .
