Even during his time in the army, Jair Bolsonaro feels that his homeland is about to develop in the wrong direction. Since then, he has spent most of his adult life longing to return to the Brazil of the military dictatorship.
P3 ID about Jair Bolsonaro is a story of political and religious beliefs. It is also a story about right-wing populism, rampant polarization, climate change, culture wars and the power of social media.
