I’ve been ashamed of my country for a very long time, but things like this accentuate the feeling. These are a couple of videos made by portuguese to “promote” the country and “enlighten” foreigners about its people. They fail redundantly! Besides stating wrong historical facts, they are superficial, poorly done, cartoonish and absurd. This kind of narrative, one where history is lined up by facts and numbers, doesn’t even attempt to analyze the events that lead us here. That’s how low our own expectations are. That’s how dysfunctional our egos are. Shame! Shame! Shame!
