‘Christian Socialism’ Plea

Your coverage of Brexit, full of foreboding, combined with Ron Ferguson’s reflection that “there is a sense of unease in our land” (Life and Work, March) are well aimed and timely.

We should analyse the problem and ask how, as Christians, we can help.

The public realm, strongly built up in the first half of my lifetime, is being eroded. It depends on robust government which is now being undermined by austerity and neo-liberalism, changing us from citizens in a democracy to punters in a marketplace.

I suggest a reappraisal of Christian Socialism (CS) is in order. It’s broader than you may think.

CS was formulated in the nineteenth century in response to laissez-faire capitalism.

It is based primarily on Leviticus 19:18 and Mark 12:31: “You shall love your neighbour as yourself.”
