¿Hacia un nuevo Medioevo? El neomodernismo frente al conflicto global actual

Listed author(s):
  • Carlos Escudé

The present gobal conflict is not so much a clash of civilizations as a collision between the Weltanschauung of the liberal, secular West, and that of the extremist segment of Islam. It is a transcendent conflict in a realm that is non-negotiable, which can be described by the following dyad of propositions: “If the Koran is the only revealed and uncreated Scripture and the means chosen by God to legislate over human affairs, then Allah must rule over men, the faithful must master the infidels, and males must lord over females. Any alternative order subverts the divine mandate and must be opportunely overthrown. If, on the contrary, all individuals are endowed with the same essential human and civil rights, including religious freedom, freedom of expression and equality before the law, then any doctrine that actively seeks to impose one religious source and a theocratic hierarchy is intrinsically perverted and must be repressed.”
