Portuguese term or phrase:involução civilizatória.
(This is an article criticising the
anti-democratic changes to laws)
....essas mudanças têm matrizes
antidemocráticas....Representam um retrocesso na vida política nacional, uma **involução civilizatória***.
They represent a regression in the national political life and a hiding/cover-up/ dissimulation/ involução civilizatória
This was as far as I got - I can't get the 'civilising' to stick, somehow. Any ideas?
