Latin Waves

Latin waves host Sylvia Richard­son speaks with Robert Jensen about our dead cul­ture of state Fundamentalism.

Jensen says that absolute beliefs that ignore life’s com­plex­i­ties are used to sup­port the pol­i­tics of empire. He gives exam­ples of these, includ­ing mar­ket fun­da­men­tal­ism (cap­i­tal­ism), moral fun­da­men­tal­ism (of spread­ing democ­ra­cy), or tech­no­log­i­cal fun­da­men­tal­ism ” the belief that tech­nol­o­gy will solve the envi­ron­men­tal prob­lems it causes.

Jensen claims that cap­i­tal­ist fun­da­men­tal­ism is in fact incom­pat­i­ble with Chris­tian­i­ty, which. like many the oth­er great reli­gions, are calls to rec­og­nize the uni­ver­sal human fam­i­ly. He describes alter­na­tive types of pow­er that can lead to a hope­ful future.
