    Every successful revolution built up its power structure first.  In the American colonies, it was the Committees of Correspondence, later to form the Continental Congress.  In the Russian Revolution, it was the municipal Soviet councils.  In the French Revolution, it was the Estates General.  In the Paris Rebellion of 1871, it was the Municipal Commune.  

    They all took years to organize effectively.

          understand what's happening right now, how are you even attempting to predict what's going to happen in ten years.

            If ten years ago you were writing about the revolution starting right now, then it sort of seems like you've been saying "the end is near, the end is near" for ten years.

            As many with expertise on Brazil have pointed out, you've completely misread what is happening there, warping it into your own Americo-centric (and Ray "the end is near" Pensador-centric) view, and I suspect you misread the situation 10 years ago.
