Your Reading indicates how much you are informed about a given subject according to the depth and contextualization of the contents you read. Our team of editors credits 20, 19, 40, 59 or 100 points for each content – those that help the most in understanding the country’s moment receive more points. Over time, this score is reduced, as newer content also tends to be more relevant in understanding the news. Thus, your score in this system is dynamic: it increases when you read and decreases when you stop being informed. At the moment the score is being made only in content related to the federal government.

How about knowing more about this subject?

Gone are the days when Disney movies ended in marriage. The new generation princesses not only save the world, they don’t necessarily make a point of having a partner. In the new Marvel production, the powers of Thor, the god of thunder, will be bestowed on a woman. Meanwhile, in Amazon’s new series based on “The Lord of the Rings”, elves are played by black actors. This is without entering into the endless discussions of race, gender and behavior that permeate the big awards, streaming and all the criticism.

It is almost impossible to deny that we live in a period of intense culture war. This subject is not new, but it remains in vogue, especially in times when every conversation seems to devolve into confrontation. After all, people find different answers to important questions: Who are we? What is the human being? Who are the good guys and bad guys in the world we live in and what to do to defeat them?. These and other questions are part of the infinite universe of art and, not by chance, it becomes a privileged field of this battle. But is this the function of film and TV? Who are the dead and wounded of this war? To talk about the subject, the podcast Ideias welcomes professor and writer Francisco Escorsim, who is a columnist for Gazeta do Povo and co-founder of the Os Náufragos project.
