The Church of Neo-Liberalism

This photograph was taken in 2010 in Bucharest, Romania by Branislav Popkonstantinovic of Belgrade. Out of the ruins of Christianity arises Neo-Liberalism. The church was destroyed by war and communism. Now that communism has foundered, finance capital has replaced both Christianity and communism as the dominant philosophical ideology in both Eastern Europe and the West. In this photo, a bank has been erected from the foundation and first floor of a former church. This photograph succinctly sums up the economic and political spirit of the times today.
