Olavo de Carvalho é correspondente do Diário do Comércio nos EUA desde 2005 e publica periodicamente a coluna Mundo Real. Ao longo de duas décadas, apesar de uma vida agitada de jornalista, escritor, conferencista e professor, elaborou uma sofisticada filosofia política, cuja aplicação prática encontramos em seus artigos para o Diário do Comércio que a VIDE Editorial reuniu nessas Cartas de um terráqueo ao planeta Brasil. Neste sexto volume, O dever de insultar, apresentamos todos os artigos e editoriais publicados em 2010. Nele, encontramos não apenas o noticiário faltante em nossa imprensa sobre o que acontece nos EUA, mas longas análises da situação política brasileira, da conjuntura internacional e não raras lições de filosofia e ciências humanas.
