Où est passé la «voix morale» de la religion? La troisième vague du marché et la montée de l’ideology néoliberale

Abstract

This article explores the religious moral opposition to the three waves of ideological “commodification” (“marketization”) that have shaken the Anglo-American world since the mid-18th century. Each wave has increased social inequality, destroyed worker’s rights, and one way or another, led to economic collapse. The first two waves have also raised a considerable number of religious critiques, which has not been the case with the third wave. This article explains this silence based on five contemporary sociological theories on religion: secularization, the resurgence of conservative, individualization, localization, and theories of the economics of religion. Not only do these tendencies diminish religions’ ability to put forth a sustained social critique but these sociological narratives themselves tend to reduce the impact of the religions moral stance.
