|Resource title||Killing For The Telephone Company: Why The Nation-State Is Not The Keeper Of The Common Good|
|Author(s)||William T. Cavanaugh|
|Publication/ source||Modern Theology, vol.20 no.2|
|Date published||April 2004|
|Summary text/ abstract||In Christian social ethics the assumption is often made, with a minimum of examination, that the responsibility for promoting and protecting the common good falls to the state. In this essay I want to examine that assumption. All too often Christian social ethics begins from ahistorical and idealized assumptions about the state as protector and benefactor. They are ahistorical because they assume that the state has been with us since biblical times.|
