Street fight

September 6th, 2006

I’ve just watched this documentary and can’t help feeling shocked. I don’t think the movie was about the good guy vs the bad guy, instead about the censurable, despicable methods used, the transgression of laws, the use of police and fire department in politics activities. I can honestly say that Brazil is way more advanced on elections than US, maybe even – I dare to say – the rest of the world, at least regarding casting votes and couting them. It’s all eletronic, secure, reliable, fast and fault-tolerant. We have the results of an election in a couple of hours. You can even download a java application and watch and query the results being calculated. It’s fun.

The biggest difference is that here we are obligated to vote. Kinda of “enforced” democracy.
