ABSTRACT
The article presents a discussion on issues related to anarchism, liberation theology and the decommodification of the juridic and linguistic form. Anarchism is a stateless social formation in which mutual aid and shared responsibility provide the bonds of solidarity. The universe is seen as rational and orderly. Perfectibility of man is attainable. Optimism in the development of man is central. Liberation theology, a theology that has developed in Latin America over the last 15 years, is the cornerstone of revolutionary struggles in the third world, providing not only a philosophy, a revolutionary praxis, but also the symbols and imageries out of which a human society can be constructed. Liberation theology is an attempt to understand the faith from within the concrete world, the exploited classes, despised ethnic groups and marginalized cultures. Demodification of the commodity, juridic and linguistic form necessitates the fundamental re-ordering and restructuring of the spheres of production and circulation in contemporary state-regulated capitalism.
