O militarismo dos "populistas"

Mexico’s fuel crisis shows why populists can’t resist politicizing the military, por Francisco Toro and James Bosworth:

Conventional wisdom has long treated the authoritarian populists of the (...) left, such as Maduro and López Obrador, as diametrically opposed to those of the (...) right, such as Bolsonaro and Trump. In our view, there’s much more that brings them together than what separates them. Enamored of men in fatigues, hungry for the automatic discipline of military hierarchy, they reliably break down the democratic norms needed to keep the military apolitical and under civilian control.
