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.

Whether it’s the ‘stab-in-the-back’ myth after World War I, the international Jewish conspiracy, or the child pornography ring that supposedly involved presidential candidate Hillary Clinton (Pizzagate), conspiracy theories have a long history. And today, with the advent of fake news and internet trolls, they are more prevalent than ever. Their impact on the public also depends on a nation’s cultural factors.
