Discussing some of the conspiracy rumors and theories that circulated during the COVID-19 pandemic in Brazil, this essay explores the fear of communism as a recurrent conspiracist trope in the country’s recent history. Unlike many conspiracy theories that can be described as bottom-up and suspicious of the national government, the Brazilian case shows the opposite tendency: the strategic use of conspiracist narratives to reinforce the powers that be.

The Worst Is Not Over Yet: The Lives and Deaths of the ‘Self’ and ‘Others’ in Brazil’s Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic
This paper focuses on the politics of life and death in Bolsonaro’s Brazil during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is argued that while this administration, and the president himself, have long supported violence against individuals and social groups they did not see as fully human, their response to the pandemic marked a public transition from valuing certain kinds of lives as opposed to others to a general contempt for human lives. The paper explores this transition by discussing the reification of the economy to the detriment of the people who produce and consume.
