"'Change yourself,' some say, 'and then your circumstances will also change.' The kingdom of God and of freedom is supposed to have to do only with persons. Unfortunately, the circumstances will not oblige. Capitalism, racism, and inhuman technocracy quietly develop in their own way. The causes of misery are no longer to be found in the inner attitudes of men, but have long been institutionalized.

‘Change the circumstances,’ others say, ‘and men will change with them.’ The kingdom of God and of freedom is supposed to be a matter only of circumstances and structures. Unfortunately, however, men will not oblige. Breakdowns in marriage, drug addiction, suicide, and alcoholism continue undisturbed. Structures which make people unhappy can be broken down, but no guarantee is attached that men will be happy.

Thus both must be done at the same time. Personal, inner change without a change in circumstances and structures is an idealist illusion, as though man were only a soul and not a body as well. But a change in external circumstances without inner renewal is materialist illusion, as though man were only a product of his social circumstances and nothing else."

Jürgen Moltmann, The Crucified God:  The Cross of Christ as the Foundation and Criticism of Christian Theology (New York, NY:  Harper & Row, 1973).  Translated by R.A. Wilson and John Bowden.  23. (via thepoorinspirit-extras)
