If I can dream
This article, I have just writen, presents the challenges that, in my opinion, we would have to face in Brazil, and that were not touched in the campaigns of the candidates who are in the second round of the elections for the Presidency of the Republic.

In July 2010 I made a proposal to create a movement, aiming to put into discussion the limitation on the number of elective mandates, so that political representation does not become a profession. I send this proposal, presented here, to some friends. Many persons attended one first meeting (which report is also on this site, on the Bookshelf "political reform"), which decided to follow up and further develop the proposal. Those interested can contact me through my blog chicowhitaker.wordpress.com.
