Brocker I 234
Democracy/Barth: For Barth, a justification of modern constitutional democracy (theory) could only be given under the conditions of a revelation theology exclusively oriented towards the Bible (according to its own claim).
BarthVsSecularization: Barth rejected any basic theoretical connection to classically modern human rights or contract theories as a "secular message" and the attempt to "build a church of human rights" (1).
Brocker I 245
In several texts which appeared more or less shortly after justification and law, Barth made the statements pro democracy, contra (Nazi) dictatorship, contained primarily in its final part, clearer and more concrete (cf. in particular Barth 1945a)(2).
