Michael Moore, Jesus, and Capitalism

Got a tip on this article by Michal Moore from Brian McLaren’s blog. I’ve already posted on capitalism, consumerism, and children, but the question can’t be asked enough: Would Jesus be a Capitalist? If not, are we inducting our children into a spirit of capitalism? I agree with Brian: Everything must change! We must change the way we’re education and socializing our children. Instead of making them die-hard capitalists (which, in the West, is easy to do), let’s help them to be formed into the way of Jesus (which means more than starting every pro-capitalism, pro-market, pro-consumerism, pro-materialism comment with “I’m a born-again believer in Jesus Christ). The latter option is more difficult, but it’s also the narrow road.
