In these times of social unrest we need to understand what drives humanity towards conflict. David Cayley, longtime CBC Ideas broadcaster, joins David Gornoski to discuss the breakdown of social unity through a distinctly Christian lens shaped by experiences with Rene Girard and Ivan Illich. On the pandemic, Cayley says that "the virus is the perfect enemy" but expresses concern over those who are suffering due to the measures imposed. "There's this perfectionist notion that this virus can be wrestled to the ground and that we can be safe," Cayley remarks, "but we can never be safe." Listen to the full episode for an anthropological breakdown of the pandemic and more.

Technologist and public intellectual Jordan Hall joins David Gornoski, host of A Neighbor's Choice, for a journey through sense-making in 2020. Along the way, Rene Girard's mimetic theory is explored in relation to physics, media ecology, and the unravelling of political faith and cohesion in our time. Where are we heading after the lockdown? How do we bind ourselves together with stories and role models based in voluntary love, rather than coerced submission? What is the difference between the story of Jesus and myth?

#002: "I See Satan Fall Like Lightning" by Rene Girard (with guest host, Kevin Miller)

Book Ish: The Canon Continues
Episode artwork
Read more

Michelle and guest host, Kevin Miller, discuss I See Satan Fall Like Lightning by Rene Girard. Their conversation covers Mimetic Theory, scapegoating, the #MeToo movement, and more.

From the back cover: "Rene Girard holds up the gospels as mirrors that reveal our broken humanity, and shows that they also reflect a new reality that can make us whole. Like Simone Weil, Girard looks at the Bible as a map of human behavior, and sees Jesus Christ as the turning point leading to new life. The title echoes Jesus' words: "I saw Satan falling like lightning from heaven". Girard persuades us that even as our world grows increasingly violent the power of the Christ-event is so great that the evils of scapegoating and sacrifice are being defeated even now. A new community, God's nonviolent kingdom, is being realized—even now."

About Kevin: "Raised on a farm just outside of Foam Lake, Saskatchewan, Kevin went off into the world and fulfilled many of his childhood dreams, which included working in the film business as a screenwriter, director, producer, and film editor and also establishing himself as a freelance writer and editor in the world of book publishing. Over the years, Kevin has worked on over a dozen films, including documentaries, feature films, and short film projects (he's Kevin Miller XI on imdb.com) and over a hundred books, both fiction and non-fiction, many of which he worked on as an editor."

David Gornoski is a scholar of Rene Girard and a talk radio host in the Orlando, Florida area. He joins Subversion to discuss what founders and those interested in technology can learn from Rene Girard and Christianity.

“By using media to expose unjust persecution of scapegoats, we can build energy to look for alternative solutions to sacrifice. And those alternative solutions from sacrifice are actually what make science progress.”
