For Brazil to assert the fact that its global it must form global alliances. While we speak the USA is courting India as is the UK. Germany and France are is courting China.

What Brazil must not do is peddle propaganda developed by Xi. That is my concern.

This is why I insist that Brazilmust quit is passive aggressive inward looking attitude and assert itself on the global stage. Yes this will mean joining with China and India to make North America and Europe listen. But They also dance with dictators when it suits their purpose.
The big problem is that Brazilians, as you can see, sympathize and identify with the West, (Europe and the USA) obviously because they are Western culturally and in terms of values.

but Westerners do not see Brazil as an ally because it is a developing country, many think that the West is also synonymous of developed countries.

Disappointed Brazil ends up getting closer to the BRICS in some moments.

Brazilians will never accept close alliances with authoritarian regimes beyond business.

In fact, Brazil needs to continue fixing its own house and developing itself, before wanting to play to be a world power, the best scenario is to remain neutral doing business with both blocks

Ok? Brazilians also aren’t flooding into America.

Pretty sure most Americans would see Brazil as an ally.

Personally I don’t think we should have any, but if we do, Brazil is probably as good as any.

And I agree with your last paragraph/statement. I wish america took this advice (even though we aren’t “developing” anymore)
