The international magazine Visioni LatinoAmericane invites authors to send original and unpublished articles that propose critical and reasoned reflections on

Where is Latin America going?

In an increasingly uncertain and polarized scenario, some Latin American countries seem to be finding some fragile balance, while others are struggling between old and new challenges.
Paradigmically we can think, for example, of Argentina, Brazil and Venezuela. Countries that once, especially at the beginning of the 20th century, took advantage of a flourishing, albeit contradictory, economy and socio-cultural prosperity.
Today, a third of the entire population of Nicolás Maduro's Venezuela flees abroad in order not to die of hardship and hunger.
Argentina is unable to overcome the endemic socio-political and economic crisis that envelops it, passing from one default to another. In what used to be the pearl of Latin America and the world, today there is 100% inflation with 43% of Argentines living in poverty when instead the country's resources could feed 400 million.
Brazil, always unable to pursue greater justice and social equalization, in the difficult passage of the presidency between Jair Bolsonaro and Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, is facing a real danger for the stability of the democratic system from developments that are not easy to predict.
Politics seems incapable of giving adequate answers or runs after, as happens in some countries, not only Latin American, growing democratic restrictions, sovereign/security policies, fueled by apparently anti-corruption movements, creating/using ambiguities and confusions between religious dictates and (in)justices between religion and politics. An example is perhaps represented by the Apostolic, Pentecostal and Evangelical churches also as mainmise of the North American vision on Latin American societies. Democracy appears weakened and wavering.
What scenarios are emerging in a subcontinent rich in natural and human resources, but impoverished by vested interests?
What are the fragilities and challenges that prevent it from actually flying high and strengthening its democratic and socio-economic justice systems?
What reflections and answers can be offered?
Where is Latin America heading to?
