Olavo de Carvalho (1947–) is a wingnut Brazilian pundit, astrologer, former Sufi cult leader, and self-styled philosopher who didn't pass fourth grade.

Carvalho lives in Virginia and maintains a YouTube channel and charges his cult-followers for having online talks with his enlightened mind.

He has a bogus think tank organization called "The Inter-American Institute For Philosophy, Government" operating from his living room, with his wife and daughter as the sole employees and beneficiaries of immigration papers, even though he is vehemently against immigrants.

One of the highlights of his career was the online debate with "important Russian intellectual" Aleksandr Dugin. He also claims to rub shoulders with Judith Reisman and Ted Baehr.

Once an obscure figure, Carvalho rose to fame during the impeachment of former President Dilma Rousseff,Wikipedia with his followers being active in the movement against her.
