The public positions of celebrities, digital influencers, media professionals, and political leaders have a huge impact on society, especially in relation to the reach of social media.

With the potential of the Internet, it is inevitable that almost everyone wants to expose a position they believe in, and that they also create an expectation of conformity to that belief on the part of people with wide reach and seductive appeal to their followers. That is why accusations and vigilance are brought against these claims.

Political positions are controversial and controversial. Naturally, many avoid walking through this minefield, which in general represents the loss of followers, wear and tear and the like “cancellations” that are undesirable results of those who live off the image and do everything to preserve it.

However, we live in a moment when it is no longer possible to remain neutral. We are faced with an authoritarian political project of the far right that has rare precedent, and that, by the way, many of those who today claim their right to remain neutral helped elect when they publicly showed their support.

It is a mistake to argue that you are against the polarization of political discourse in order to refrain from the required position, because when an authoritarian government emerges, polarization is already underway at one pole. As Jewish Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel said, neutrality favors the oppressors, not the oppressed, and persecution encourages the persecutors, not the persecuted.

This is not just a crisis of representativeness, as some are trying to convince us, when it is difficult to choose between two populist and authoritarian political projects that oppose each other on antagonistic ideological spectra – which is not even a fair comparison, since they are No, no position opposing the current power is not such a radical and obvious anti-democratic discourse. It is the defense of democracy, humanitarian, environmental, institutional and social problems through violence, authoritarianism, sectarian fundamentalism and regression.

Fighting this discourse and countering attacks on democracy is, first of all, balancing the political game, in which it will again be possible to disagree exclusively in the field of ideas.

The dollar continues to reflect the political scenario

Yesterday, financial agents evaluated the opposite decision of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) regarding the so-called secret budget. In addition, a decision was made by STF Minister Gilmar Méndez to issue an injunction that would exclude the Bolsa Família from the spending cap rule, with investors trying to understand how this measure would affect the processing of the transitional PEC in the Chamber of Deputies. Oh this PEC!!!!

Since he is an exchange investor, any reading that the budget will be exceeded or become more flexible will negatively affect the exchange market, whether through the PEC or in any other way. We will continue with volatility today.

Looking beyond, the US Central Bank (Fed), although slowing down the pace of monetary tightening at its December meeting, issued a tougher-than-expected statement warning that its fight against inflation was not yet over, raising fears that rising US interest rates will push the world’s largest economy into recession.

The currency market continues to react to political news. The voting on the PEC is saved for today. It is expected that it will indeed be reviewed to open the way tomorrow for discussions on the 2023 budget.

Yesterday, the spot price closed the selling day at R$5.3103.

For today on the calendar we will have an index of consumer confidence in the eurozone. Good luck and good luck in business!!

The EU has reached a political agreement on limiting gas prices – 19.12.2022



Germany sentenced Russian to life imprisonment for political murder by order of Moscow - 12/15/2021
BRUSSELS, DECEMBER 19 (ANSA). European Union countries reached a political agreement on Monday (19) to impose a natural gas price ceiling of 180 euros per megawatt hour (MWh). The main sources of income for Russia and the minimization of the use of energy as a weapon by the regime of Vladimir Putin.

The agreement was approved by a supermajority at a ministerial meeting of member states in Brussels, Belgium, after months of discussions about the best way to contain the rise in natural gas prices in the bloc caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. .

The value set by the countries is well below the proposal made by the European Commission, the EU’s executive body, in November: 275 EUR/MWh. However, the countries leading the cap campaign were in favor of an even lower limit, around 100 EUR/MWh.

Germany, always wary of price controls, voted in favor of 180 euros, while Austria and the Netherlands, also skeptical of the cap, abstained. Hungary, the most pro-Russian country in the EU, voted against.

The instrument will enter into force on 15 February, but only if natural gas prices on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange exceed 180 euros/MWh for three consecutive days. In addition, the difference compared to a number of global benchmarks should be more than 35 euros.

Italy, the EU’s biggest supporter of the ceiling, has claimed responsibility for the measure. “This is a victory for Italy, which believed and worked for us to reach this agreement,” Environment and Energy Minister Gilberto Picetto tweeted.

“This is a victory for Italian and European citizens who demand energy security,” he added.

Currently, the gas price in Amsterdam is around 110 EUR/MWh, which is already a reflection of the agreement in Brussels – in August the figure even broke the barrier of 340 EUR/MWh.

However, Russia has already threatened to stop exports to countries that adhere to the ceiling. (ANSA).
