As you know, Brazil is the only country in South America that does not speak Spanish. And why this happens? Let’s go back to mid-1494, specifically on June 7th.

What happens when human evil is graced by the State?

“Children on the ground, among flies, no toys, no psychiatrists whatsoever […] Crippled people, crawling on the ground, crawled, grouped so they would not be trampled at mealtimes.
