What We Need to Learn from Rene Girard

David Gornoski is back with another episode of A Neighbor’s Choice; and this time he takes us through what he considers is the key to defeating the radical, victim-garbed politics of our time. Christ’s crucifixion has made it impossible for humanity to sacrifice the other for political gain, David says as he points to the work of French anthropologist Rene Girard. History repeats itself when we refuse to learn from the past. “The children repeat the crimes of their fathers precisely because they believe they are morally superior to them.” Listen to the full episode for David’s explanation of how we can deconstruct the smooth rhetoric of the left, reveal the broken bones in their closet, and rescue the hidden victims of our society.
