It is extraordinary to me how The Market has come to be deified and presented as an objective reality which governs our economic life with the same inevitability that gravity governs the motions of the planet. The truth is that the market is a construct of our culture. It hasn’t always been this way, and doesn’t have to be this way in the future. It’s rules are not laws of nature. We make them. We can change them. They can be for the benefit of the wealthy and powerful, as they are now, or they can be made to serve the needs of the poor and the powerless, as the Kingdom demands.
It’s a choice.
But yes, indeed. How long?
