In the second episode of our two-part special on Christianity and anarchism, Gaven Morgan joins us once again to explore the topics of anarchism, Christian mysticism, and the Eastern Orthodox church. In this section of the discussion, we chat about duality, dialectics, religion as an opiate, anti-fascist monks, liberation theology, the Beatitudes, the utility of storytelling, why Jesus spoke in parables, service and self-sacrifice, building proletarian power, and why the left needs to get off the internet and out of the ivory tower and start meeting working-class people in their communities.
Oh, also, Pearson defends the Harry Potter saga.
If you haven’t already, be sure to check out Pt. I of our conversation with Gaven in Episode 27: “The Theology of the Unknown.”
We hope you enjoy the second half of our conversation.
All out against the KKK in Stone Mountain Park, GA!
