Social Theology and Social Alienation
This chapter explains the condition of the absence of all faith that creates the unhappy consciousness and assumes that Christianity could assuage its restless longing. It discusses the loss of all social allegiance as the real source of romantic feeling today and confirms that Christians also feel estrangement from modern history. It also emphasizes how the new secular doctrine could present itself as an alternative since the origin of romantic alienation is now social and not solely religious in character. The chapter addresses why romantics can no longer endure their predicament that tend to seek self-immolation in totalitarian movements. It describes Catholicism as a familiar haven for tired romantics in the 19th century.
