Holy crap, Brazil is turning up side down. While two major forces face each other with little to no regard for the Constitution. Politics, television, magazines and judges inflating their mass of blind sheep to hate one another. And behind all that a shadow of fascism grows with promises of "order, ethics and end of corruption".  
To my amaze, while I was working and listening to random YouTube shenanigans, one particular video stole my full attention.



Brazil is up there, competing with China and Russia on which one is the most sick violent distopia of a country.
That amuses me. Not the sick violent distopia thing, I'v goten over it long ago as I live in one of the most deadly citys in the world ( 26th place of 2015 acording to this international ONG: www.seguridadjusticiaypaz.org.… , meaning there are places under ISIS control that are statistically safer than where I live). What amuses me is the international recognition.

Here, police can be 10 times worse than common outlaws (more so if you're black or poor), we have organized crime so good they have politics representing them and are able to completely shut down our most industrialized state (São Paulo), in a wave of violence so great, the governor had to 'make a deal' for it to stop. We already had a crime syndicate of doctors and public servers in our public health system being charged for killing patients and selling their organs. Past elections almost half a ton of cocaine was busted by our federal police, the owner of the drug helicopter is a politician, the farm they were is his fathers', and just close of where the police decide to apprehend the drug there is an airport built with public money (against the law) in the private land of one uncle of a politician to "coincidentally" be an old time friend of the helicopter owners and have a fame of being a cocaine addicted playboy. This cocaine snorting playboy has a broad number of media companies (TVs and radios) and was running for presidency, and is now head chief of his party... Let that sink in...

Our media is so good at (not) advertising, most people don't have a clue of how f*cked up we are. If you ever heard of brazilian people as glee, quotes happy people...no, we're not. It seems like laughter on the surface, but most likely we are a country of lunatics that have to laugh off all the terrible things or we may loose our minds for good.

War Against Disease
Made for a advertisement against mosquitoes named 'Aedes Aegypti'. Those little vampires are the vectors for 3 nasty diseases that can kill or ruin someones life, Dengue, Chikungunya fever or Zika virus.
