Publisher: The Gravediggers of Brazilian Democracy


The historian Sérgio Buarque de Holanda was right when he said that democracy among us was never anything but a great misunderstanding. Given the right proportions - concerns would be the correct term - the sociologist Gilberto Freyre would arrive at the same conclusions, when analyzing the institutional engineering devised by the Portuguese Crown with the purpose of colonizing the country, very marked by a kind of "licentiousness" conceived of Their representatives here in the province. The boundaries between private life and res publica in Brazil, therefore, constitute a very tenuous, almost imperceptible line. This is the report of the magazine Veja this week, bearing in its cover the complaint that, supposedly at the request of President Michel Temer (PMDB), ABIN started to search the life of the minister Edson Fachin, STF, do not cause us any surprise, Only more indignation.

Minister Carmen Lúcia, president of the STF, issued a note strongly condemning the supposed attitude of the occupant of the Planalto Palace, calling the maneuver typical of the most hazy periods of our incipient democratic experience when the military seized power. We are facing an unprecedented institutional crisis, where the relevant political actors, instead of preserving a minimum of decency and conditions to return to democratic normality, are actually contributing to their definitive burial, fulfilling the role of gravediggers, as Pointed out in another context, STE Minister Herman Benjamin, in refusing to bury "living evidence" in the documents that requested the cassation of the Dilma-Temer plate, in a recent judgment in that Court.

According to the article published in the blog, written by the scientist Michel Zaidan Filho, the so-called "reasons of State", seems to be the argument behind maneuvers, more and more excuse, to ensure the fulfillment of a right agenda among these actors, that aims , Fundamentally undermining the social and political rights and expectations of the Brazilian workers, legitimized by the citizens' constitution promulgated in 1988. It should be noted here that sectors of the judiciary - which would have the function of preserving this Constitution - in times not so remote, In a way that is not covered by its breach, allowing this "licentiousness" that today already affects one of its most illustrious members, who must be under severe pressure, because of conducting the work of Operation Lava Jato. Minister Luiz Barroso, at one point, would have warned of the problem.

Minister Herman Benjamin, who was quite consistent throughout the trial of the Dilma-Temer plate in the STE, said he could even attend the funeral, but refused to bury living evidence, as we said in the first paragraph. To the unhappiness of our democracy, it seems to us that there are many actors willing to fulfill that role for which Minister Herman had refused, that is, the role of gravediggers of democracy. The speech of Luiz Fux, in announcing his vote in that Court, also constituted a true law class not compromised by political injunctions. There is no vote against the irrefutable evidence contained in the case. A real aberration a judge behaves in a different way, under any argument, even having on the horizon the possible "reasons of State."
