Abstract: The main objective of this article is to discuss and examine the rise of neoliberal public policies proposed by the current Brazilian Executive Branch, which favor specific layers aiming at particular and strictly economic interests, threatening in existential plan the life of those who occupy and need the environment through measures inconsistent with the Brazilian jurisdiction of flexibilization of protection policies, in emphasis, the environmental. In this way, the repercussions of these attitudes over time are evident and show themselves to be harmful, not only in the socio-environmental plan but also in the political and regimental structure itself, compromising and putting in jeopardy the directives of the Democratic State of Law in Brazil in the light of the Constitution of the Federative Republic of 1988 and of the international human rights charters to which the country is a signatory. The qualitative methodology will be employed, promoting a complex amount of information in its multiple facets and of the monographic procedure with a bibliographical survey in the fields of Law and Social Sciences. With this, the research brings reflections on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the UN’s 2030 Agenda and the rupture of this path with structural reforms that are based on the regression, violation of rights, destruction of ecosystems with the very backing of the State or its omission, signaling the extreme urgency of changes for the sake of a future showing that there cannot be the exercise of citizenship and the affirmation of human rights where there is no democracy, which is based on the harmonization of the will of the majority and, especially, in the protection and respect for minorities, as well as there cannot be a human life without adequacy of the capitalist model in the molds of projects aimed at environmental sustainability. Therefore, having as a foundation the defense of the international and constitutional charters, the Social State, and the foundations of a fair, sustainable and egalitarian society. With this, the present study brings into evidence the current social reality in decline and the negligence in the face of environmental problems in conjunction with the anti-democratic attitudes of a country like Brazil, which is going through a moment of uncertainty and without expectation in the governmental summit itself, which requires reflection and debates for the implementation of public policies with measures to prevent the collapse of biodiversity, of the people and fauna that occupy these spaces and, finally, ensuring sustainable development in a fair way aiming not only at the survival of biosystems and living beings but in cooperation for the progress of mankind within a system that cherishes all forms of life.
