[Guide] How to set up Docker containers to automatically download any TV show or movie

Environment Reddit - Sat, 08/24/2019 - 15:50

Before I begin the guide, a few things:

  • Mods, if you want to wiki this or want me to add/change anything, please let me know
  • This guide is intended for educational purposes only - I used this myself to learn Docker for work
  • Feel free to share this
  • Ask for your help if you need it and I'll help where I can
  • If this ca be improved, please let me know

Now to the guide

Download Anything Using Docker Containers TL;DR What Is This?
  • Download any TV show or movie that's coming out or is already out
  • Easily rebuild, modify or add any component you like
  • Download privately through a VPN
  • Download from Usenet sources
  • Manage your files with a web file browser UI
What Do You Mean? Give Me An Example
  • It's currently August 2019
  • New episodes of the TV series "Suits" come out each week
  • One of my containers runs Sonarr which will automatically download new episodes for me as soon as they are available
  • I can check a box and hit search to download past episodes too
  • The downloads come from torrents from any indexer I choose or from any Usenet provider I choose
Requirements Installing Ubuntu Server
  • Boot up the installer
  • Choose your language and locale
  • Change your IP to a static address
  • My home network is 192.168.0.0/24 so I chose 192.168.0.19
  • Use the entire disk and set up an LVM
  • Don't forget to expand the disk size
  • Enter your username and server hostname
  • I chose "user1" and "docker-test"
  • Check the box to install OpenSSH server
  • Skip the snaps as there's issues with the Docker snap
  • Wait for the server to install
  • Reboot the server once install is complete
Updating The Server
  • SSH to the server using your application of choice
  • I use PuTTY
  • Run sudo su
  • Enter your password
  • Then run apt update && apt upgrade && reboot
  • Enter y for any prompts
  • Wait for the system to reboot
  • SSH back into the server
Installing Docker
  • Instructions for this are sourced from this page
  • Run the below and enter your password when prompted sudo apt-get install \ apt-transport-https \ ca-certificates \ curl \ gnupg-agent \ software-properties-common
  • Run this to add the Docker GPG key curl -fsSL https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu/gpg | sudo apt-key add -
  • Run this to check the fingerprint returns a match sudo apt-key fingerprint 0EBFCD88
  • Run this to add the Docker repo sudo add-apt-repository \ "deb [arch=amd64] https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu \ $(lsb_release -cs) \ stable"
  • Run this to update the repo list sudo apt-get update
  • Run this to install Docker sudo apt-get install -y docker-ce docker-ce-cli containerd.io
  • Run this to confirm Docker is installed sudo docker run hello-world
  • Run this to create the Docker group sudo groupadd docker
  • Run this to add your user account to the Docker group sudo usermod -aG docker $USER
  • Now reboot sudo reboot
  • Once rebooted try running hello-world as non-root docker run hello-world
  • The container should run
  • This confirms you can run containers without needing to escalate to root each time
Installing Portainer For Web Container Management
  • Instructions for this are sourced from this page
  • Create the portainer config volume docker volume create portainer_data
  • Run the below to start the container docker run -d --restart always -p 8000:8000 -p 9000:9000 -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock -v portainer_data:/data portainer/portainer
  • Browse to http://serverip:9000 to confirm it works
  • So I'd use http://192.168.0.19:9000
  • You will be prompted to set a password to log into Portainer
  • Create one
  • I use admin for the username and adminadmin for the password
  • Now select local and connect to connect to your server's local Docker instance
  • You can now manage containers from the web
Configuring Filebrowser
  • Before we can deploy the containers we need to create the DB file for Filebrowser
  • SSH to the server
  • Run sudo mkdir /var/lib/docker/volumes/filebrowser/ sudo touch /var/lib/docker/volumes/filebrowser/filebrowser.db
Deploying The Containers
  • Select stacks and add stack
  • Give the stack a name at the top
  • I called mine Download-Stack
  • Paste the contents of my script into it
  • This is where we meet a small fork in the road
  • If you know what you're doing with VPNs and other VPN providers, you can modify the script and go from there
  • Assuming you're following this guide as-is, we will continue
  • Scroll up to pia at the top
  • Scroll down until you hit environment
  • Modify your variables for your PIA account
  • Modify your variables for the region you'd like to connect to
  • Modify your variables to specify your subnet
  • So mine would look like ```
  • USER=MyPIAUsername
  • PASSWORD=MyPIAPassword
  • REGION=Netherlands
  • EXTRA_SUBNETS=192.168.0.0/24 ```
  • Once modified, deploy the stack
  • This will take a while depending on your internet connection as it needs to download each container image
  • Once done, you will see all containers running in your containers view
Configuring JDownloader
  • To make JDownloader work you need to configure it with your account
  • Click on the JDownloader container from your container view
  • Click on console
  • Change the command to /bin/sh
  • Type configure myemail@address.com myjdownloaderpassword
  • Go to https://my.jdownloader.org/ and log in
  • Your JDownloader container should appear there
URLs & Logins For Each Container
  • Below is a list of URLs for each container and what they do
  • Modify for your IP and bookmark them for easy access
Filebrowser
  • For web management of files
  • It's bound to port 80 so no port is specified
  • http://192.168.0.19
  • Username admin
  • Password admin
Firefox Jackett JDownloader NZBget PIA
  • VPN container
  • All other containers force their network traffic through this container
  • If this container dies, so do all other containers
  • This is to prevent IP and DNS leaks
  • The container uses iptables to kill the connection if the VPN drops inside it
qBittorrent Radarr Sonarr Configuring Each Application
  • Now for the boring manual part that I will gloss over because it's 22:30 and I'm tired
  • A lot of this is bespoke depending on who you are and what you want
  • I will create a video that quickly goes over each part of this with what to do
  • I will continue with this guide tomorrow
Other Useful Tools
  • There's an Android app called nzb360 which provides fantastic mobile management of
    • Sonarr
    • Radarr
    • NZBGet
    • qBittorrent

26 [M4F] USA/Canada - Relaxing Saturday, still looking

Environment Reddit - Sat, 08/24/2019 - 15:50

A little bout myself, my name is Mike, I am 26 years old and live in the United States. I am looking for new friends to talk to, possibly developing more than a friendship. I am pretty much a homebody kind of person, I enjoy being outside but I feel more whole when I am in more of a comfortable environment.

I like horror movies, especially the old ones and the really bad ones that are so bad to the point you can't stop laughing. I enjoy playing video games whether it be PC or console. I listen to all types of music as long as it catches my interest so if you got any music to share, feel free to do so!

If you would like to know anymore bout myself, go ahead and send a PM. I am an open book!

climate change is so fucking depressing

Environment Reddit - Sat, 08/24/2019 - 15:49

seriously, it just feels like there's no hope for the future, and there is no fucking escape from hearing about it. and we can do our best to make a positive impact on the environment but at this age, when most people on this sub probably still live with there parents, we can't just change our whole lifestyle in less than a year and a fucking half for so many reasons. we can do small things like recycle, use less single use plastic, soap bars, etc. one of the most frustrating things is that to make the biggest impact, you need money - if you want to use more reliably, sustainably sourced things, you have to pay more, if you want an electric car, you have to have so much more money than most families have at disposal. Then there's the statistics, the most frustrating one being that (this might be a bit off) it's 100 huge companies that are responsible for well over half of the global warming right now which basically means that whatever we do it doesn't make a fucking difference and we're fucked anyway.

I'm not a sad person, but when I think about global warming and climate change, I don't see a pretty future, I don't see a future at all for us and the people who come after us. All of those people who'll probably never see all of the beautiful animals and plants that we got to see. The thought almost doesn't feel real, but it is, and it's really fucking sad. This isn't a post saying I've given up, because I'm trying my best within my circumstances, and I'm sure everyone else is, but the future just looks bleak. And maybe it won't be too shit for us but everyone who comes after us don't have s chance. Either we've fixed it by then or we've let our entire fucking planet die.

[USA-IL] [H] 200 x Sapphire NITRO+ RX 580 8GB [W] Paypal

Environment Reddit - Sat, 08/24/2019 - 15:49
PRICE - $100 per card shipped TIMESTAMP WARNING: /u/kosoviar is messaging people impersonating me. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE TAKING TO ME, /u/KoSoVaR

HOW MANY CARDS DO I HAVE FOR SALE? THIS CURRENT BATCH IS QTY 200, PLEASE SEE TIME STAMPS TO VERIFY -- EACH BOX IN FRAME HAS 10 GPU BOXES WITH GPU INSIDE

These GPUs were put in to operation around October 2017 and have been out of service as of February 2019. They have *always* been in a clean data center environment.

Transparently, these cards were mined using these settings: 1140/2100 @ 850mV with a powertune of 2. The power consumption has been around 140W at the wall and they have never been dual mined.

WHAT YOU GET

You will get a 100% working GPU with stock BIOS in a box, definitely not the original. The box may be a brown box from Sapphire or an OEM box.

PAYMENT OPTIONS

  • PayPal

FAQ

Questions Answer What card is this exactly? These cards are Sapphire NITRO+ Radeon RX 580 8GB. You may get one of 3 part numbers - 113-1E3660U-O51, 13-1E3660U-O52, or 113-1E3660U-O5P. Have they been used to mine cryptocurrencies? Yes. How long have the been used to mine cryptocurrencies? About 18 months. Were they bought new and are you the first owner? Yes. What's in the box? You will get a box, most likely not the box it came in. It will not be the retail box, it will be a brown box that they were shipped to us in (from Sapphire). What's on the card? All GPUs were flashed to stock prior to decomissioning. If you find that the GPU you received is not stock, I will happily replace it at no cost or walk you through flashing to stock if you don't know how. If it is the mining BIOS and you actually want to mine, it is a power conservative BIOS that is stable at 1140/2100-2150 @ 850mV @ 28.7MH/s running sgminer-gm. Warranty I'm afraid not. SAPPHIRE says non transferrable. However, these cards are 100% working cards. I will honor any reasonable "this doesn't work scenario" Will you take pictures of the card before you send it? You bet, happy to send over any other information to interested parties! When can you ship? Within 48-72 hours of payment, most likely will ship same day. Most likely will be USPS or UPS general ground, non priority shipping, with tracking, signature. Returns? None. But I will guarantee you a 100% working card. If something seems defective we will work it out. Alright, how do I buy? Please post here on this thread and send me a PM! submitted by /u/KoSoVaR to r/hardwareswap

Would creating a man-made river from the oceans deep into the African deserts help create a healthy new biome and livable environment for more people and species?

Environment Reddit - Sat, 08/24/2019 - 15:48

I am watching Planet Earth I & II and the narrator mentions a lot about the effects of global warming on deserts all around the world, especially Africa.

Considering in Dubai massive islands and buildings are able to be built, if countries worked together to build rivers from the oceans surrounding Africa, connecting to each other, help change the environment, increasing rainfall, plant growth, and eventually the entire landscape?

Would this be a viable idea to help provide more space for our growing human population and prevent many species from dying out due to drought? Could it also help lower the ocean level?

Jumping into Sec+ looking for some guidance afterwards.

Environment Reddit - Sat, 08/24/2019 - 15:47

Just ordered the Sec+ book by Daril Gibson. I’m going to partner that with the goat, Professor Messer and his online material and get this out of the way. I’m looking to get into Sys Admin position in a Linux environment. I was wondering if jumping to Network+ right after would be a good start?

I have a few years as a junior level Admin working with Linux, unfortunately my lack of certifications hindered growth.

Ultimately The goal would be DevOps, in a engineering role more so an architectural one.

Any guidance on the steps after Sec+ would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Non-Profit version of 4Ocean?

Environment Reddit - Sat, 08/24/2019 - 15:46

I’m doing some research on organizations that are involved in ocean cleanup. I was wondering if anyone may know of any organizations that are similar to 4Ocean. From what I understand, they are a for-profit organization who’s business model is selling $20 bracelets and promising 1 pound of trash from the ocean. It also seems like most of the revenue generated from sales doesn’t actually go into cleaning the ocean. Anyone know of any non-profit versions of this organization that they could share with me?

I need recommendations and tips please!

Environment Reddit - Sat, 08/24/2019 - 15:46

Hi everybody!

My nephew (3) and niece (2) are visiting and I will be watching them for an entire day. They will be spending the night with their mother at my apartment while their father has surgery.

My nephew has been evaluated and diagnosed with autism, and my niece has similar and stronger behaviors that indicate she is aneurotypical. They are both nonverbal, high energy, struggle to follow directions, and tend to be flight risks.

I wanted to ask r/autism for any advice, tips, or tricks to give them the best experience while they're staying with me. I'd love to avoid meltdowns, but I understand that might be difficult because they'll be in a brand new environment with an auntie who hasn't ever had them to herself for a day.

My plan so far is to take them to a children's museum that allows them to explore and let energy out, so they'll be tired enough to settle down by the evening. They also have a quiet room for kids who need sensory breaks.

Cursive and intellij misery

Environment Reddit - Sat, 08/24/2019 - 15:44

There seems to be some major fubars going on with cursive and intellij at the moment - I don't want to point the finger, part of it is clearly my mistake in trying to keep my dev environment up to date, and I get this is a complex beast.

Summary is, having a huge number of random and silent failures, such that just sitting down to hack on stuff ends up being a two hour marathon of reading random github issues, intellij bug reports.. and nothing gets done. Super frustrating.

some of the issues: deps autocomplete randomly stops working, core clj/cljs functions can't be resolved, navigating to definitions doesn't resolve anything, trying to import a project from existing sources silently fails, odd exceptions in the event log.. you get the idea.

Do any of you have a stable combination of intellij and cursive versions that is currently working for you? I know 2019.2 is bust, but still seeing a mixture of these issues all the way back to 2018.3.

help appreciated!

[Rev-Share] Looking for 3D Environment Artist for small horror survival game

Environment Reddit - Sat, 08/24/2019 - 15:42

Hello, I'm currently searching for additional talented and passionate members for our team that's creating a small horror game.

About the game: The game would be a small sci-fi/post-apocalyptic survival horror 3D game with FPS (First person shooter) mechanics and an original setting and story based in a book (which I'm writing) scene, where a group of prisoners are left behind in an abandoned underground facility. It would play similar to Dead Space combined with Penumbra and SCP: Secret Laboratory, with the option of playing solo or multiplayer.

Engine that's being used to create the game: Unity

About me: I'm a music composer with more than 4 years of experience and I'm currently leading the team that's creating this beautiful and horrifying game. I decided that making the book which I'm writing into a game would be really cool, and I got more motivated about doing so some time ago when I got a bunch of expensive Unity assets for a very low price. However, I researched about how to do things right in game development so I reduced the scope of it as much as I could, so that's why this game is really based in a scene of the book and not the entire thing. Also I'm currently learning how to use Unity and learning how to program.

Our team right now consists of: Me (Game Designer, Creator, Music Composer, Writer), 3 3D Artists, 4 Game Programmers, 1 Sound Effect Designer, 2 Concept Artists, 1 3D Animator.

Who am I looking for: We are looking for a passionated and talented 3D Environment Artist that's experienced in hard surface models and the creating of closed/underground scenes with a realistic feeling to them. Familiarity with the sci-fi/horror genre is a plus.

Right now the game is in mid-early development and you can see more information about it and follow our progress in our game jolt page here: https://gamejolt.com/games/devilspunishment/391190 . We expect to finish some sort of prototype in 2 months from now.

This is a contract rev-share position

If you are interested in joining, contributing or have questions about the project then let's talk. You can message me in Discord: world_creator#9524

Co-worker attacked on the job, I'm freaked out, no support from management

Environment Reddit - Sat, 08/24/2019 - 15:38

Hey ya'll,

TLDR upfront: I need advice about a dangerous work environment. My coworker got attacked on the job while I was there, I'm scared, I can't afford to leave my job, and management is hands off. Not a throw-away, I just haven't made an account until now.

I work for a large retail food corporation with a public facing policy that suggests our store can be anyone's home, purchases not required. I live in an area where homelessness is a major issue, the city and law enforcement are failing to address it effectively, and it impacts employees of businesses that open up doors but do not provide training, support, or security in the event of an issue. When I say issue, I'm not referring to an individual asking for free stuff or anything, I mean aggressive and intimidating issues. I'm not a big person, I'm not trained in self defense or security, I don't want to get involved with scary issues.

The company I work for has benefits which is nice. Sick and vacation time is provided. I value that.

We have very unstable homeless people come in to the store every 30 minutes. They get scary when they find out we don't have public restrooms (so do the paying non-homeless), when we won't give them free food or drinks, etc. Like seriously scary. Management is aware and have witnessed this. There's little training on how to handle this, no security staff, and most times, just two of us (F) working.

Yesterday a rough looking young man came in who has been aggressive over and over. We've called PD, and they seem to have their hands tied and cannot do anything. He's stolen our tip jar, stolen food from our case...regular occurrence. Again PD has done nothing yet because they didn't catch him in the act. It's not illegal to cause a ruckus or intimidate people, but stealing is. This man came in today and I recognized him. I tell my supervisor that he's here. The supervisor goes around the bar to talk to him face to face and politely asks him to leave, he's refuses. She lets him know that he will not be served because of events said above. He claims to have a gift card, but supervisors still informs him he won't be served. Supervisors heads to get her cell. While she's out of the room he begins loot the front food bin. She returns and he's got an armful of food items, literally.

She returns to the lobby and sees he's looting our store. She asks 'what are you doing'? The man then attacks her, literally. He runs at her, tackles her and pins her down. He didn't have to do that. She wasn't blocking his exit. She screamed and went down hard. It was so awful to watch. I ran out from behind the counter not knowing if he was going to hurt her more but she got up so quickly. He got up too, and fortunately he takes off out of the door. Two passerby's that witnessed this tackle him and we call PD who responds and takes him away. All the while customers are continuing to come in to impatiently place their orders which is besides the point but F'd up IMO. My guess is he'll be back in a few days and looking for reckoning.

I'm seriously freaked out. We called management and told them the story. The gal that got attacked got 'approval' to leave work early IF she could arrange coverage on her own. We called the district manager as well who said she'd come in to discuss the matter. 3 hours in, she still hadn't shown.

I'm not trying to make this about me, but I'm literally terrified to go back to work and appalled that my management, the company I work for... didn't give a shit! I don't like to throw around popular terms but this seems to fit the unsafe/hostile work environment mould. I've been with the company for many years and am used to getting belittled by customers and not backed by the 'customer is always right' approach, but this is different.

This needs to change and I don't think it's right that I should have to lose my job and forgo my healthcare because it's downright dangerous where I work!

My coworker just texted me, he's crying...8 hour later.

I need help and advice and I can't afford any professionally.

If 95% of the world's population were wiped out by a virus, which parts of the world would be least likely to have gotten infected?

Environment Reddit - Sat, 08/24/2019 - 15:35

Some of the remaining 5% would be immune to the virus but I'm trying to figure out which remote parts of the world would be unlikely to have come into contact with outsiders during the rapid spread of the disease.

It seems like self-contained environments - submarines and boats - would only risk infection if they came back to port, but are there islands or remote areas in places like Siberia where there is very little contact with the outside world?

thanks!

Grade my essay! Please & thank you :)

Environment Reddit - Sat, 08/24/2019 - 15:33

PROMPT:

Some people believe that corporations have a responsibility to promote the well-being of the societies and environments in which they operate. Others believe that the only responsibility of corporations, provided they operate within the law, is to make as much money as possible.

Write a response in which you discuss which view more closely aligns with your own position and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should address both of the views presented.

MY RESPONSE:

I strongly agree with the idea that corporations have a responsibility to promote the wellbeing of the societies and environments in which they operate. Corporations play an integral role in modern human life. They have the power to influence which direction society moves. Corporations which have a sense of civic duty, and responsibility towards their community tend to fair better financially in the long run, as opposed to those who are only in it for the money. A company can be simultaneously mindful of their impact on society, as well as profitable.

Corporate entities that have internal social good programs have happier, more fulfilled employees. This in turn, encourages their workforce to work harder for the corporation as a whole. For example, Salesforce, the tech giant, has a paid time off to volunteer program for their employees. Employees can take up to two weeks to do good in their communities. In turn, this facilitates an energy of respect and compassion within their workforce. No doubt, workers feel good about their employment, and work hard to further the interests of the corporation’s success. People who are allowed time off to give back to the wellbeing of their community without worrying about their pay, tend to be happier and more productive at work. A company that allows them that time, even though as an internal cost, will recoup the payroll losses in the long run by reduced headcount turnover. A company can both care about their input on a social level, while reaping the rewards of a more productive workforce on their bottom line.

Large scale businesses who don’t pay attention to promoting environmental health tend to pay negatively for it. Examine the fiasco of the BP Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Due to mismanagement of operations, they pressed upon the natural habitat one of the worst ecological disasters of the 21st century. In a quest to dominate the market and enrichen shareholders, the oil conglomerate did not hold itself to high enough standards. They inflicted terrible suffering on the local ecology while simultaneously causing extreme losses financially. The company has not yet recovered this blight in the eyes of the public either, still conjuring a sense of shame whenever brought up in conversation. Corporations who ignore their duty to the environment around them in the pursuit of short term dividends tend to pay for it in the long run.

Corporations who blend their pursuit of success with a high sense of public duty tend to fair well in their respective market. Whether it’s encouraging a sense of loyalty in their employees, or avoiding a public relations nightmare, making money does not have to come at the cost of society. Businesses who think about their impacts, not just from a business perspective, but from a humanist vantage point, have the greatest chance of a symbiotic relationship with the market in which they reside. A corporation can do both.

Pray for Amazonas

The lung may have cancer

About forty years ago, alarms began to sound about the consequences for life on this planet of the development model that, especially the western world, had implemented since the industrial revolution. A model that, among other serious problems, generated a more or less systematic destruction of nature. The contamination of land and water, the disappearance of forests and the consequent increase in desertification, the unlimited use of non-renewable resources that began to cause vertigo before the abyss upon realizing that the planet is finite, were also result of these actions. Like the growing impoverishment of millions of people, trapped in some countries sheared and exploited by the voracity of development imposed that, ironically, they were called “developing”, while their future was mortgaged and closed. In sum, there was widespread concern about the fact that we could be ending the options of a decent life for present and future generations.

Since those years, studies, research and summits have multiplied in which world leaders resolved virtually nothing despite the continued worsening of the situation of diverse and increasingly obvious risks. And thus we reach the current times in which the dangers are more than pure alarms. Climate change is unquestionable and we all are aware of it, however much some pseudo-leaderships (D. Trump) are reluctant to deny it and others decide to look the other way so as not to bother the leader excessively. Global warming is no longer at the door, but has entered the house and its consequences have not yet been measured accurately, like any future, but we do know that they will be serious for many territories and for millions and millions of people. Now we know that there are vital resources and situations for the system and for life that are reaching the limit and that will be exhausted shortly, not yet generating sufficient alternatives.

Well, precisely when those concerns began four decades ago one of those vital, but finite, resources that was quickly identified is the Amazon rainforest. On the one hand, there are several dozens of peoples with diverse life forms and, as such peoples, they have the right to continue disposing of that territory and its future. On the other hand, this natural space was quickly named as the green lung of the planet, for its generation of essential elements for life. Multiple studies pointed to the serious consequences of its disappearance, generating profound changes in the same climate of the entire planet and increasing global warming, among other effects. The Amazon was one of the vital territories for the world.

But at that time the lung had, at least, asthma. A disease that limited its lung capacity and that of continuing to generate, among others, the oxygen necessary for the planet. It was understood then that day by day he was attacked by mercantilist interests, typical of the neoliberal system, which destroyed thousands of hectares of forest daily, constraining his ability to breathe. Continuous deforestation, destructive mining, agribusiness of monocultures in a highly vulnerable land, went hand in hand with the periodic great statements that the so-called international community made to keep the Amazon rainforest and the human rights of the peoples that have preserved it for thousands of years.

And in this way, in this schizophrenic walk between the concern for conservation and the dominant one of continuing to increase immediate economic interests, time was running out. Today, the extreme right is in power in Brazil, a country that has in its borders most of this basin of enormous biodiversity. And this may be the definitive cancer that kills her; that asthma evolves into cancerous ulcers and metastasis can do the rest, while the world looks the other way and avoids its responsibility in the health of the patient.

The first firm decisions of the government of the neo-fascist Jair Bolsonaro, in line with his declarations in the electoral campaign, are a frontal attack on the Amazon and the peoples that inhabit it. Until now the National Indian Foundation (FUNAI) has been the state agency, under the Ministry of Justice, which was responsible for the safeguard, with greater or worse fortune, of the rights of the Amazonian peoples and, among others, of the delimitation of indigenous protected areas. For those first decisions pass the demarcation of indigenous lands to the Ministry of Agriculture, which today is in the hands of Tereza Cristina Correa, who has been for years the leader of the block of rural landowners, who defend agribusiness at all costs and, a Another example, the unrestricted use of agrochemicals. The Brazilian Forest Service also passes from the Ministry of Environment to the Ministry of Agriculture. Finally, FUNAI, totally emptied of attributions and competences will now depend on the new Ministry of Women, Family and Human Rights, which is under the authority of the ultra-evangelical pastoralist Damares Alves. This minister is a fervent anti-abortionist who, among other statements, said that the time has come to implant the government of the churches or that the public school is no longer a safe place and the only space with these characteristics is the evangelical churches.

With this situation the forecast, or rather it seems that the promise, is that the progress of deforestation and disappearance of the lung of the planet multiply exponentially. They have never been stopped, but what can happen in the next few years is that the destruction of the Amazon is completely irreversible. The characteristics of the jungle and its soils do not make them recoverable; In addition, these spaces are sold out in a very short time, so they are not even useful for agriculture. It is much easier for the Amazon to soon become a wasteland or huge areas of grass for the cattle of the landowners that we see trees grow again.

The rise of the extreme right, not only in Brazil but also in the US and in old Europe, as well as its attacks on equality and the exercise of women’s rights, it has made recover a sentence of the feminist philosopher Simone de Beauvoir. He pointed out that we can never forget that “a political, economic or religious crisis will be enough for women’s rights to be questioned again, (because) those rights are never taken for granted.” Therefore, the meeting concludes by highlighting the importance and need for women to remain vigilant over these rights throughout their lives. Unfortunately, the premonition of Simone de Beauvoir turns out to be true in its absolute totality and depth, but also unfortunately, not only if we talk about women’s rights, but also if we do it about nature (Amazonia), indigenous peoples or the great majority (impoverished sectors, middle classes …) that this system, today ultraneoliberal, continues to consider as exploitable assets for the unbridled increase of its economic benefits accounts. Elites are like that and therefore today we must be more than vigilant than ever to truly achieve that the rights of people (women and men), peoples and nature if they are really rights acquired and not permanently questioned by the dominant system . There are international rights instruments that protect them and that today are at risk of being ignored, violated, forgotten, definitively. We are on time to eliminate cancer, but metastasis begins to grow and there is no time to lose.
