Teologia de la LiberacionMay 10, 2020
In this video we are going to talk about a topic that you have seen studied, politics or pedagogy, you will know it well and if it is not the first time you will be able to talk about it and it is precisely the theology of liberation, we are situated in a Latin American context between the decades of In the 60s, 70s and 80s, a movement of priests emerged who worked in the option for the poor, the needy and the most needy, among whom, for example, was Father Carlos Mugica. He inspired a movement that later had many ramifications and which even included the pedagogue.
Brazilian Paulo Freire basically was a movement at first strictly theological but also above all social, that is, action on society and then branched into the sociological, also pedagogical, legal and philosophical field, it is currently one of the most indigenous currents of thought or properly speaking. Latin Americans, let's see the central core of his thought is that being Christian means opting for the poor, it means loving your neighbor but above all being empathetic with the suffering of those who have the least and therefore are suffering and are the most disadvantaged and vulnerable within our society. society and it is not only to suffer with them but to set an example not only with words and thoughts but above all with real concrete physical material action with helping the poor, it also means facing the power that is always on the side.
It has the most on the side of the richest, let no one be fooled, liberation theology is Latin American and is from our lands, but obviously the baby of European Marxist critical sociology, let's see the historical context, it is not unknown to most of us in the decade. From the 60's, 70's and 80's a great boom, neoliberalism at the hands of the de facto governments, precisely freedom of trade, business and so on, was imposed by force at the hands of dictatorships, the neoliberal plans that the central powers had for this were implemented. region, the correlation and collaboration that the Nobel Prize in Economics Milton Friedman exercised with the Latin American dictatorships, specifically with the Chilean one, is not unknown, and in each particular case of each country it occurs in other similar situations, obviously being the popular sectors of each country of each sector the most punished as they have always been historically, which is why liberation theology had a reaction from the Vatican, who the Pope precisely asked for the holy inquisition, which is currently obviously called something else so as not to arouse suspicions, which is the sacred congregation of the doctrine of faith to theologically review the doctrine of the third world priests or the third world fathers, as I also know to call these fathers of the option for the poor, the response was obviously not long in coming and was the rejection of this doctrine although In the scriptures it is clear that Jesus opted for the poor in reality, so to speak, faith has to do with unconditional love towards all men equally and therefore a similar doctrine is not accepted up to this point in our very brief review of theology. of liberation, a thought specific to and original to these lands is the precursor of Christian Marxism, some suppress these first theoretical currents and one of the most influential and today in our current context of neoliberalism of selfishness in almost social or social concern it is a current to be had consideration that has influenced both philosophers such as Gianni Váttimo and jurists of the stature of Eugenio Zaffaroni.
