Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
We might be moving in time beyond the progressive era. Brexit, Trump, Bolsonaro are not blips.

The whole Latin America is turning, and not only. Even with Lula out, could you expect that openly authoritarian, xenophobe, misogynous attitude will win comfortably? Not only social progress is loosing its edge and authority, it is despised more than flirtation with fascism as we knew it in the previous century. Respectable power rather than corruption tally is the real game.

This evolution is related with resource limitations. Ironically, the wrong people will be in power to "solve" it one way or other. Smart progressives won't be wiser than this human nature, this time.
