Girard - First Things

If you have not done so, read Girard's essential On War and Apocalypse. It will make inimitable sense of recent "trend toward extremes" at Town Hall meetings and concomitant Last Self-Help Administration strong-arm tactics. But not only that. If there is a clearer, honest, and heads-up examination of terrorism and Islamism and the mythological thinking of western rationalism, I don't know of it.
