Abstract

ANTUNES, Deborah Christina. TOLERANCE AND DEMOCRACY TODAY: DISCOURSE OF DEPUTIES IN DEFENSE OF CONSERVATIVE POSITION. Psicol. Soc. [online]. 2016, vol.28, n.1, pp.3-13. ISSN 1807-0310.  https://doi.org/10.1590/1807-03102015v28n1p003.

Dialectic of enlightenment still shows up in present society. In recent years, the so-called minorities have conquered important rights. Along with these achievements, however, hatred and intolerance speeches. This article analyzes the discourse of Human Rights Commission of the Chamber of Deputies in Brazil when the adoption of the Draft Legislative Decree 234/2011 aimed at changing the Psychologists Code of Ethics in paragraphs restricting any correlation between homosexuality and disorders . Here we use studies of the Frankfurt School on the speeches of fascist agitators, prejudice and the authoritarian personality. Based on Marcuse, we question totalitarian formal democracy and repressive tolerance, advancing in the understanding of the relationship between cultural climate and semi-erudition. We reflect on as not a unique symptom of conservatives, but as a way of existence today and highlights the need for historical and political education in order to develop consciousness and overcome poverty and oppression.

Keywords : prejudice; repressive tolerance; PDL 234/2011; Frankfurt School; Adorno, Theodor Wiesengrund.
