As an aside

South America would be the most capable continent to sustain by its own resources* a modern economy.
Asia has too many barren parts, Africa simply doesnt have the inclinations for industrial development.
South America is like artificially stunted. As a kind of unconscious compromise to the rest of the world.
Or simply doesnt need to try as hard to justify itself. It will likely begin to try just a little harder though as opportunities become inevitable.
It is simply not a war culture. Its very violent but inward, in terms of conquest it is by and large marked as the most prized prey.
It is rather of Venus than of Mars, therefore it is marked for a time beyond the age of wars.

* Resources not including humans. Any modern economy needs Europeans or Asians.
The strong do what they can, the weak accept what they must.

Brazil is the 8th largest economy in the world (altho per capita it's only middle income), it has loads of resources and lots of white people (the most white people after the US and Russia), so who knows, maybe Brazil could be a superpower some day with imperial ambitions of its own.
That being said, would suck to see the amazon depleted.
Jair Bolsonaro is a Trumpian of sorts, he's been taking Brazil in a bit more of a populist direction.
If the PTB get their way, he and Trump will be gone soon and no one will rise up to take their place.
Brazil and the US will be fully on board with the controlled demolition of the world as we know it, agenda 2030/global reset.

Brazil is also the 5th largest country in the world, with a ton of arable land, resources and coastline.
Unfortunately many of its citizens live in abject poverty.
Can it pull millions of them out of it?
Doesn't look like it anytime soon.
