Why Twitter is a Hellscape

“Twitter is one long, drawn-out crisis of undifferentiation with a neverending futile search for scapegoats.” The social media platform has become a playground of sorts for politicians playing childish tit-for-tat games with each other. Why has Twitter become such a hellscape? Healthy boundaries and hierarchies are what our society currently lacks, David observes. Joining David Gornoski to discuss this topic is James Kourtides who points us to the misuse of technology that leads to self-inflicted death. How do we tackle this age of negative mimesis through technology? The answer, David and James say, might have something to do with how Jesus destroyed the ancient practice of human sacrifice with the cross.

George Floyd and the Futility of Victimless Crime Laws

In light of the recent murder of George Floyd, many are demanding accountability; but it’s hard to get accountability when the government holds monopoly power and violent mobs riot on the streets of our nation. “We need to dissolve monopoly power,” says host David Gornoski. “We need to look at ourselves and ask: ‘Why am I allowing victimless crime laws to exist?'” We need to live up to our Christian heritage and the belief that the victim has rights, David urges. The answer lies not in voting for your favorite candidate but in the ability to love your neighbor as yourself. Listen to the full episode for an unpacking of the religiosity of politics, the non-violent gospel solutions to our problems, and more.
