ID: <10670/1.vu47iq>


On-screen research, using a qualitative analysis methodology, using the hypotheticaldeductive approaches of a descriptive and analytical character, adopting a bibliographic research technique, has as a reason to analyze the crisis of political legitimacy experienced in the scenario national, seen mainly after the demonstrations that removed the inertia of the Brazilian people. The exposition of some concepts such as society, the state and its elements fit in order to demonstrate the origin of the legitimacy of political representation. Brazil is a country historically marked by constitutional crises, making paths of democratic evolution and regression to dictatorships. The most recent Political Charter prevents the return to authoritarian regimes, but it is noted that the text produced not by the entire population, but by representatives that made up the national political leadership, although inserting forecasts of the exercise of popular sovereignty has remained directly in the forgetfulness of the political representatives, on the basis of their decisions on social welfare. It is not only legal elements inserted in the Federal Constitution, but also historical-cultural characteristics that demonstrate the gravity of the inertia of the citizens.
