Tuesday Lecture: Not On Democracy Now! Not On Majority Report Not From Any Secular Figure Have I Heard Something So Radical As This

Walter Brueggemann: The Importance and Future of Preaching in an Age of Social Turmoil

Brueggemann says the unthinkable about the United States and the totalizing ideology that even the radicals buy into, only with a slight difference.   It points out that the market religion which is the real state religion of the United States (and yet people wonder how White Evangelicals voted for trump) which considers people as commodities.   Marxism did that no less than brutal capitalism does, only it calls us "masses" and talks about us in terms of natural resources instead of monetary values.
