Arms and the man in-between
7 April 2019 | by jgcorreaSee all my reviews

In order to understand more exactly what happened in 1964 in Brazil, you must brush up a little your History. You must at the very least know that in 1848 Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels developed a thesis interpreting the world and global life as a class struggle, in which the strongest and most powerful enslave and exploit the weakest, apud social Darwinism. Of course, Marx and Engels did not believe in cooperation and integration between classes. They concluded that the exploited class, which produced the goods, was the one that should reign supreme, rather than that of its exploiters. 116 years later, the events that culminated on March 31, 1964 altered the Brazilian evolution and course, determining an alternative direction for that people and a different future for that country. The relevant ideological, political, social and military movement was termed by some as a Revolution, by others as a Coup d'État, according to their convictions, interpretations, and concerned interests. In my opinion, the movement was neither a Revolution nor a Coup, but rather a Backlash. or Countercoup. The feature film ¨Brasil Paralelo, 1964 - Brazil between arms and books" is certainly the best documentary ever made on the history of modern Brazil. Actually, it ought to be displayed in every school and every TV channel. There is an ongoing campaign of defamation against it, which started with an article in the newspaper "O Globo" arguing that the film in question defends right wing dictatorial regimes. After watching the movie, I plainly realized that conservatives are really in need of a movement that may occupy the social networks, the streets, the cultural scene, and the press. I can understand the commitment of the so-called extreme-press to denigrate the film's image and message, but, contrary to everything they teach in schools, it does contextualize the context (pardon my emphatic pleonasm) of 1964: namely, the Cold War. As interviewee William Waack points out, "Not a single Communist country chose to become Communist by herself." This is also my advocated point, which I hereby relay to all those who really want to know the truth of the facts, regardless of your beliefs and convictions. After March 31, 1964, communist militants who then saw their plans foiled unleashed, through guerrilla and terrorism, actions such as a bombing of the Guararapes airport in Recife in 1966, a bombing of Army Headquarters in São Paulo, in 1968, an attack against the American Consulate; the murders of a Danish industrialist and a US Army captain, countless bank robberies, kidnapping of foreign ambassadors and assassinations of inexperienced recruits in barracks attacks. The Brazilian military therefore reacted. Both sides erred, killed, kidnapped and tortured. For the record, dictatorships and wars are neither just nor holy. They're dirty and inhumane. Nowadays, 55 years after March 31, 1964, what I note is, those who thought like Marx & Engels, those who wanted to rule like Lenin & Stalin, those live today as Rockfeller & Soros, those who 55 years ago, in the name of an ideology that preached equality and freedom, wanted to change the world, support today the Cuban & Venezuelan regimes. 1964 prevented Brazil from being transformed into a communist dictatorship. Let us say that the Armed Forces intervened with the veins of blood nationalism and a residual love for Motherland. This documentary shows the errors and the hits that occurred in the last 55 years. It also reveals how the process of rigging occupation took place in universities and the media and how, through Gramscism, the left wing has since won the "cultural war". My recommendation: watch it.
