The normative force mitigation of the Brazilian constitution by constant constitutional reforms

The constant changes in the Brazilian constitutional text in contradiction with the will of the constitution end up weakening its normative-legal character. Especially in countries like Brazil, which has a super complex and multifaceted social environment, the constitutions lack operational autonomy, filled with programmatic norms and a high degree of abstraction. In view of this, a political practice that belittles the normative force of the constitution by the state agents, especially those imbued with the power of reform, added to the deficiency of the fundamental institutions of the state and an adverse social context, the political-symbolic of the constitution ends up being overloaded due to the depreciation of the normative-legal function. As a result, the portion of the subintegrated society can join the anti-establishment narrative of the illiberals and call for a new constitutional order of authoritarian bias.
