It seems to me that the split between charismatic-spontaneous relationships, on the one hand, and structured social and institutional relationships, on the other, cannot be perfectly reconstructed (see Hegel and his writings on Christianity). A charism always affects social, economic, and political structures and urges their transformation. But it would be simplistic to think that the utopia inherent in a charism can solve the complex dynamics that regulate systemic and objective structures of society.
