“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.

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.
