Brazil Deploys Troops To Protect Government Buildings As Protesters Set Ministries On Fire

Perhaps we in the US don't appreciate that we still have a pretty stable society. (At least for now.)

As Brazil's president spirals toward near-certain impeachment, there are fights (physical altercations) in Congress, and the Ministry of Finance (Brazil's version of the IRS) and the ministry of Agriculture have been set on fire by rioters.

On a related front, I think I just figured out why my Brazilian customer hasn't answered my e-mails today

All societies require taxes to function. keeps the roads paved and soldiers armed.

They also need bloated corrupt officials, apparently.
Burn it down, start over.

I assume you can think of a different more successful model that has no taxes?

The EU is at the root of any riot and chaos situation in Brazil since about 1 year. The forceful removal of Dilma was an obvious indicatio of EU interference coupled with serious "real corruption" in Brazil (Real corruption means: not the fake corruption idiotic stories peddled by western brain dead media) possibly leading to what amounts to armed revolts and civil war, less then 1 year after the president was overthrown by their western allies and after many many years their western allies praised them for being a fast-growing BRICS country.
