As for what happens in Portugal... well, as both countries speak the same language, Portugal will be the obvious choice for the least educated brazilians to emigrate, since they don't have to learn another language. Meanwhile, the most educated brazilians go to Germany, France, Britain, Canada, USA, where the criteria for receiving immigrants is more rigid and there is a language barrier, forcing them to learn. As a result, the people of these countries have a much better concept of Brazil than Portugal or even Spain have.
There are a lot of educated Brazilians in Portugal, doctors and nurses for instance. My dentist is Brazilian as well.

And no, since Brazil as a whole is not overly educated, Portugal has a much better idea of Brazil than Germans or Canadians have, simply because the Brazilians that come here represent the bulk of Brazilians, not some small intellectual elite.

And that sort of lack of morals and values that made a lot of Brazilians vote for Bolsonaro.
The ones who voted for Bolsonaro is mostly the evangelicals and conservative in customs although he is liberal in economy (why i voted for him) he is ultra conservative in customs.

Regarding prostitution I am also very conservative, but other than that I share hardly any views with Bolsonaro, let alone evangelicals.

I really donít care about others people sexual life, personally I think who needs prostitute to getting sex are losers, and the women exchange their dignity for living a luxury life, but I donít get involved in the lives of others and I donít think the government should.

Well, government has to get involved since prostitution involves the transfer of money, i.e. it's a business. And prostitution often goes hand in hand with other crimes, so again it is the government's business.

Government involvement in the prostitution industry, if we can call it an industry, is necessary to prevent the criminal element from becoming the dominating force in that industry. Making prostitution illegal will simply make that industry an illicit activity that will be dominated by criminal gangs and pimps. Making prostitution legal but with no government controls or oversight has the same effect as making it illegal, except that it will be a legal industry dominated by gangs and pimps.

A non-gang or pimp dominated prostitution industry requires for it to be legal and for strong government oversight of the activities. Thatís how it is in Spain, prostitution is legal but the government keeps a strong eye on the industry. Despite that, some irregularities exist, as this documentary explains.

Yes, Prostitution should legalized and regulated everywhere. Not just to fight organized crime but also to put in health checks. Prostitution is not going anywhere, might as well make it safe as possible.
