Abstract

[In the previous chapter, I deconstructed the neoliberal myth of progress that undergirds global capitalism by framing my religious critique around notions of crisis, redemption, and hope. This narrative of progress asserts a false hope, which is grounded in the promise of material abundance and well-being for all. However, this promise has fallen short. Critical theorists and womanists such as Benjamin, Zizek, and Baker-Fletcher remind one that if voices desire to disrupt structural inequities sponsored by global economy, such voices must unsettle what legitimates contemporary capitalist rationality: the myth of progress and the promise of material abundance in the future.]
