Books and biz
Brazil is a huge country
along the coast there are big cities but you dont find bookshops there.
India has a million books, books on holy men, books by masters and gurus,
books on life, new books on biz and success, story books and science books,
but in Brazil, which is quite a young country, you dont find good schools and bookshops.
In Colombia FARC is having its own schools and teachers,
same is the case in Mexico with the EZLN
but in Mexico the have some good universities as well.

In the Americas biz is done on the backs of simple people,
when people get educated it is not that easy any more for biz and its profits
and in the once backyard of uncle bigbiz
it is only one ignorant church, the katholic church
which only accepts its own stories told and doesnt like people reading other stories.
That is why there are hardly any bookshops in Brazil.
In India you find a million books.
