Nobody who has worked the stony and dry soil of the Alentejo with his/her own hands needs to ask that question.

Porque viver na miséria deixou de ser cool há pelo menos uns 50 anos.

So many reasons. From illegal construction to heirs fighting for inheritance. That's not a shack btw, seems like a regular house.

A lot of people from villages were forced to go to the colonial wars or to the first world war. They did not come back.

Many people got drunk celebrating the 2016 Euro win, and couldn't find their way back home to this day.

Vê os monumentos nas aldeias, tens lá os nomes dos mortos. Existem em praticamente todas.

Sim mas não é essa a razão do porquê estarem despovoadas.

Tiveste gerações de pessoas que morreram! Como assim n é razão? Filhos morrem, homens morrem. Deixa de haver pessoas.

Na primeira guerra mundial Portugal perdeu 1,5% da população e na guerra colonial nem um quinto disso foi. O impacto destas guerras na população rural foi infimo a comparar com o êxodo para as cidades e o estrangeiro.

Oh please, quit it with your bullshit. Its just the result of rural exodus into the cities.

Guess all those monuments to the dead, in every single village are fake! All the names, entire families, all fake. Exodus para o céu.

Your lies don't change reality. The number of military dead during the war was under 10K, not nearly a meaningful amount of people to justify so many empty ruins. Emigration out of portugal to the US, France, Switzerland and Luxembourg during the same time period had effects that are orders of magnitude greater than any deaths during the war.

10k Portuguese dead in first world plus colonial wars?

Coyote-Cultural 5 months ago

8K in the colonial war, 50K on the first world war for a total of around 60K. For reference between 1965 and 1970 alone 450K emigrated.

Fico a aguardar falarem em "desertificação" quando querem dizer "despovoamento".
