Kristus är uppstånden!

”Christ's resurrection has direct implications for contemporary politics. Today, western societies have witnessed the emergence of a new tribalism, fueled by the logic of capitalism with its proliferation of niche identities and by the politics of multiculturalism with its advocacy of mere "difference," while lacking the language to articulate any vision of a common good. Such multicultural pluralism is a mirror image of the postmodern ethics of difference, where each person is assumed to be absolutely "other."
"This amounts to a crisis in our social imagination: we find ourselves unable to imagine what it might really mean to live together. Margaret Thatcher's prophecy has come true: there is no such thing (anymore) as society."
Benjamin Myers - ”Rowan Williams and the Politics of the Empty Tomb”
