ABSTRACT Democracy has been a recurring theme in Brazil for the past decade, due to the emergence of conservative narratives and movements impairing public debate on issues that bring differences to the social field, such as racism and gender/ sexual violence, in addition to calling for the re-edition of the ongoing exception policies in the Brazilian civic-military dictatorship. Thus, the main objective of this paper is to analyze the meanings of democracy and education based on incursions into the past of the military dictatorship, as a way of problematizing the current exception policies in Brazil at present. To this end, it is intended to discuss: (1) the necropolitics that affected the lives of children and women in the military dictatorship, based on testimonies about torture by State agents, extracted from the report of the National Truth Commission, and their relations with necropolitics in the current Brazil that refer to racism and gender-based violence, grounded on criticisms to the notions of protection and development in their colonizing effects; and (2) the social disappearance as a policy of exterminating memory and its harmful repercussions on education. Finally, it is aimed to highlight the devastating process of differences, whether gender, sexual, racial, ethnic and age, implemented by past and present exception policies, and how a democratic education, which stands against these policies, may be resistance to barbarism.
