You the story of the “Charging Bull”, the bronze bull conceived by the Italian sculptor Arturo di Modica, which was installed in Manhattan in 1989 and intended to symbolize the strength of the financial market, can be found everywhere. So it is…
In Banânia, they decided to make a replica that simulates gold.
Thus, our animal resembles more the biblical golden calf, which is the symbol of the false God.
In its way, it makes sense, doesn’t it?
A false God in the age of Jair Messiah, the false prophet.
Is there any direct relationship between the golden calf and the famine that is raging in the country? It’s not about cause and effect, of course! And it can always be argued that a thriving financial market is a sign of a strong economy, with fewer poor and hungry people.
It doesn’t hurt, however, to be decorous, does it?
Crisis or no crisis, does this show of exhibitionism make sense?
It doesn’t take long, and someone is still proposing a reissue in the country of the flying ox.
MORO AND ITS GUEDES
In an interview with Pedro Bial, Sergio Moro announced his Paulo Guedes — the time has come to leave Posto Ipiranga, the real one, in peace.
Well, well… In his own way, Moro also says: “I understand nothing about economics. My Virgil in this circle of hell is Affonso Celso Pastore”.
My Jesus Cristinho!, with the permission of Manuel Bandeira.
What is already a cliché becomes inevitable:
“Hegel observes, in one of his works, that all the facts and characters of great importance in the history of the world occur, as it were, twice. And he forgot to add: the first time as a tragedy, the second as a farce”.
These are the first words of Marx’s “The 18th Brumário de Luís Bonaparte”.
The author deals with Louis Bonaparte (Napoleon III), the nephew who was the farce of his uncle, Napoleon himself. The latter had given a coup on the 18th of “Brumário”, and his nephew would then follow in his footsteps.
Moro, as it turns out, doesn’t just want part of Bolsonaro’s electorate… He also wants to be the “clown” of the new morality, while invisible accountants manage the cash register. In his own way, Napoleon III was successful. For a while at least. That doesn’t happen!
NO LIKE THIS, MILK!
Eduardo Leite, who disputes the PSDB caucuses with João Doria, gives an interview to Igor Gielow, on Folha. He says why he can be president of the Republic and points out characteristics that he considers negative in his internal opponent. Until then, everything is in line.
I don’t follow, I confess, in detail. But it seems to me that Leite is a competent administrator and is attuned to principles that are not very far from mine in public administration. Well, it’s a fact that all good people agree on matters of common sense, right? Yes, the consideration is kind of tautological, but that’s how it is.
In the internal dispute of toucans, I identify with adverbs, as Umberto Eco would say. That is, it is true, in any dispute. I’m not a politician.
There is, however, an answer from Leite that seems unacceptable to me. I reproduce:
Speaking of this relationship with the military, how was the episode in which General Luiz Eduardo Ramos [então secretário de Governo] asked him to call Doria so he wouldn’t start the vaccination that Sunday [17 de janeiro] in Sao Paulo?
There was a conversation in this direction, it was not a request for intervention, but a request for reflection. Perhaps it would have been a good thing for the country to make an effort to coordinate and engage, as it was a national issue. But it’s an outdated episode.
Then it’s not possible, right?
He admits, doesn’t apologize and still defends what he did. Based on what?
Request for reflection? With the vaccines ready?
Governor Eduardo Leite, that January 17, when the first vaccine was applied in the country, 518 people died from the disease, totaling 209,868 deaths.
This short answer, without further explanation, seems to me unacceptable. Do you mean that, with “reflection, coordination and engagement”, we would have opted for postponement?
Leite has the right, of course, to try to win the internal dispute. In his answer, however, Doria comes in as a kind of villain of the haste, and General Ramos, who spoke for Bolsonaro, as the spokesperson for reflection.
I read in Lauro Jardim’s column, on Globo, that Doria would have replied as follows:
“I’m sorry, Eduardo, that you were willing to meet a request of this nature from General Ramos. Tell him that we’re going to start the vaccination as soon as Anvisa authorizes the use of Coronavac. And that I’m on the side of life and of Brazilians .”
Did the governor of São Paulo really say that? Well, they both had a chance to exercise their memory.
After the publication of the note, Leite sought out the Globo columnist. And it reads:
“Eduardo Leite got in touch and said that ‘at no time has it been said that I asked for a postponement. Minister Ramos called me. I called my party colleague and fellow governor and related the phone call I received. him to start the vaccination”.
With all due respect, the amendment presented to Lauro Jardim does not match the sonnet recited to Igor Gielow. In fact, the second makes the first worse.
The golden calf is always a danger.
