The xtian communist impulse

December 13th, 2014 · No Comments

Already getting a protest that the Munzerian church idea is sound: cancel the Cancellation. Be my guest. The point here was that in the model of history I have been using, the Reformation jumpstarts a series of Xtian movements, with the radical Munzerian one being a prefiguration of the coming of communism.
So, they want to disconnect the Cancel button.
My idea is a good one, but it requires care, and some way (not hard) to translate Marx’s insights on ideology, class, into a religious praxis of postcapitalist social equality. The value of this is that Xtians are up to this, and there are many many Xtians who would be prepared to give up their possessions in an act of religion as long as it is not via the storm trooper tactics of bolshevism.
So the idea is born: let it gestate as a genuine crisis of planetary salvation. And the spiritual help for that in relation to an hyparchic future is already the case. I think it is becoming clear that the obscure christological source is turning away from the botched legacy of capitalist xtianity.
