Brazil: I want to live in Second Life

Wanderley Filho [pt] compares, ironically, Brazilian politicians achievements to life on Second Life: a parallel world. “The election air time on TV is a balm to comfort those citizens who imagined that their past elected governments had not done any work for the past 4 years. In a few minutes the mistake is clarified and with surprise we find out that we had misunderstood and things are happening at a hallucinating pace (…) with a little help from computer graphics, it's possible to create a parallel administration”.
