"Socialism in the Theology of Karl Barth"Edit

in Karl Barth and Radical Politics (1976)
  • God is not a basis for interpreting the world, but the fact which really transforms it.
  • Religion is immediate self-consciousness. It liberates the individual from the determinative forces of society . ... It is effective only in individuals, where "in-dividuals" means whose who are undivided, that is, who are liberated from the psychological, social, and logical consequences of the division of labor in society and who actually live concretely and historically, unfettered by abstract norms.
