Mitos no Desengajamento Moral: Retóricas da Samarco em um Crime Corporativo Outros Idiomas

ID:
47890
Resumo:
Nesta pesquisa, conduzimos uma análise retórica com o objetivo de explorar os mecanismos de desengajamento moral utilizados pela Samarco no caso do crime ocorrido com a quebra de uma barragem sob sua administração, em novembro de 2015, em Minas Gerais. O corpus de pesquisa submetido à análise retórica constitui-se de publicações contendo declarações da empresa e de seus representantes sobre o caso em questão. Como resultados, mostramos que a Samarco utiliza-se de três mitos na sua retórica: (a) Nós estamos fazendo o que deve ser feito; (b) Nós não colocamos a sociedade e o meio ambiente em risco; e (c) A culpa não é nossa. Esses três mitos são recursos representativos do desengajamento moral (Bandura, 1999) da empresa para cometer um crime corporativo. Nossa análise identificou três mecanismos: deslocamento de culpa; minimização e distorção das consequências; e rotulagem eufemística.
