In this research we discuss some political business actions, in Brazil, in particular the politics of social responsibility of companies, understanding that there is in this initiative a technological innovation status that needs to be questioned. Therefore it refers to the rationality that aims the management of populations. It has as technical device to achieve this a society controlled by security mechanisms. We take therefore as the axis of analysis three procedures enforced by some social projects developed by Brazilian companies - the scientific research, the juvenile protagonism and the participative methodology. The reference to the analysis are texts of many kinds from these projects and available to public access.
