    "The sacrificial crisis must be defined as a crisis of difference; that is to say of the cultural order in its entirety." - René Girard (1923-2015) The dissolution of all imaginable differences – between pure and impure violence, normal and abnormal, man and woman, and indeed, God and Man – can be viewed as a sort of plague that can only exist in the spiritual vacuum created by the death, or obsolescence of the old institutions.

  • Is Violence a Function of our Culture? (Full Session)

    Homicide remains an endemic, seemingly unsolvable problem in America. And violent crime afflicts African-American communities to a much greater degree than it does others, as does mass incarceration — and as does police violence. What is the cause of this crisis? What role does racism play? What is the role of culture? Are there any solutions to be had? The mayor of New Orleans, Mitch Landrieu, has been confronting this crisis head-on, and Atlantic Magazine National Correspondent Ta-Nehisi Coates has written widely on matters of race, policing and American history.

    Around 100 protesters have been arrested in France across over the weekend, as they protested the death of an environmental activist. 21-year old Rémi Fraisse was killed during clashes between police and demonstrators at the site of a contested dam in south-western France.

    After two disappointing turnouts at nation-wide protests, both on November 4th and the 8th, as well as just a general listlessness I've begun to observe across the left, I started to wonder why it might be that we are suddenly seeing so much lethargy and low energy (well, lower energy) than in previous months.

  • The Stream - Why are so many teens in New Zealand killing themselves?

    Mariah Herbert is 20 years old and lives in Northland, New Zealand. A decade ago, she lost her older sister to suicide, and last year a friend for the same reason. She has tried to end her life at least twice, and has a younger sister who has also contemplated taking hers. But her story is not unique. According to a recent UNICEF report, New Zealand has the highest youth suicide rate in the developed world for teenagers aged 15-19 years old. The rate is 15.6 suicides per 1000 people, which is twice as high as the United States and five times that of the Britain - numbers that have been largely steady for about two decades. The country has a complicated relationship with the word "suicide". For the past few decades, schools have been advised not use it, or discuss it in the open. The me...

Rating agency Moody's has set itself on a collision course with German Chancellor Angela Merkel - after changing the country's credit outlook to negative. The agency even hinted at possible downgrades - if the Eurozone gets worse. But Merkel immediately fired back that Germany would remain Europe's financial haven, despite the Eurocrisis.

In the second half of this series I look at the phenomena of moral panics, as has been historically catalogued in cases such as the Salem witch trials, the red scare, and even more recently and less severely, Gamergate in relation to the current hysteria being expressed across various individuals and groups on the left in their desperate attempt to isolate and burn the perceived deviant folk devils of the right. I describe how moral panics function, grow and the behaviors they elicit. The first half attempts to explain the social psychology of this phenomena. https://youtu.be/cAodB1h_ozU You can gib shekels on Patreon https://www.patreon.com/AydinPaladin References: Asch, M. J.

After two disappointing turnouts at nation-wide protests, both on November 4th and the 8th, as well as just a general listlessness I've begun to observe across the left, I started to wonder why it might be that we are suddenly seeing so much lethargy and low energy (well, lower energy) than in previous months.

Recent events in Paris have prompted a number of questions, including these: How has global terrorism advanced so quickly? What part does religion play? And what actions should the United States and other countries take against the threat? University of Arizona associate professors Alex Braithwaite and Faten Ghosn of the School of Government and Public Policy, which is housed in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, offer some context and perspective on terrorism in light of the gun and bomb attacks on Nov. 13. Braithwaite’s research and teaching focus on the causes and contagion of violent and nonviolent conflict, including terrorism, protests, riots, civil war and international wars. His research shows that incidents of violent political conflict cluster in space and time, and that openings in political opportunity structures encourage the contagion of violence between groups and across national borders. Ghosn’s interests focus on the interaction of adversaries and how such actors handle their disagreements. A common theme is the importance of the choice of strategy. Her articles have appeared in Conflict Management and Peace Science, International Negotiation, International Studies Quarterly and Middle East Journal. She holds undergraduate and graduate degrees from the American University of Beirut.

Mariah Herbert is 20 years old and lives in Northland, New Zealand. A decade ago, she lost her older sister to suicide, and last year a friend for the same reason. She has tried to end her life at least twice, and has a younger sister who has also contemplated taking hers. But her story is not unique. According to a recent UNICEF report, New Zealand has the highest youth suicide rate in the developed world for teenagers aged 15-19 years old. The rate is 15.6 suicides per 1000 people, which is twice as high as the United States and five times that of the Britain - numbers that have been largely steady for about two decades. The country has a complicated relationship with the word "suicide". For the past few decades, schools have been advised not use it, or discuss it in the open. The media has been under gag order for fear of contagion. And laws around it are complex. Recently, though, it has come out of the shadows in the form of prevention and awareness initiatives. Experts have been looking into the many reasons youth suicide is a such a huge problem. School bullying records are poor, there are high rates of family violence and child abuse. Potentially, there are also cultural reasons - Maori/Pacific Islanders are particularly affected. Others say the issue is simply one of teen confidence and low self-esteem that is being mislabeled and poorly handled due to stigma. And suicide has become political. The government is working on a strategy for suicide prevention and spending millions on initiatives. On the next Stream, we'll take a closer look at what’s behind the high youth suicide rate in New Zealand, and discuss potential solutions to solving the problem.

On June 2, 2015, the U.S Institute of Peace and the FP Group, publisher of Foreign Policy magazine and foreignpolicy.com, hosted the fourth installment of PeaceGame. This PeaceGame tackled one of the most challenging of issues confronted by the U.S. government and stakeholders worldwide: the global rise of radical groups and violent extremism.

It brought together experts in the roles of key stakeholders who played an active part in combatting the various push and pull factors that are drawing recruits to Daesh, with the goal of developing effective counter-strategies to address the growing problem.
