I talk with Luke Burgis, an author and expert of René Girard. He's written a book called 'Wanting: the Power of Mimetic Desire in Everyday Life'. Today we discuss Girard, the problem and solution of sacrifice, Christianity, desire and rivalry, our modern concern for victims after the World Wars, the formation of Antichrist, cancel culture and more. Enjoy.
