Sympathy for Jonah: Reflections on Humiliation, Terror and the Politics of Enemy-Love


“The culture that worship music draws on is mass culture and I find mass culture individualizing, de-peoplizing, alienating, top-down, disempowering – all these things. It has the ilk of a product that’s sold to millions of individuals.”

“I think the image of God is rooted in the love of other and to base the economics of your society on self-interest creates a very uncomfortable place for me to live in as someone who’s trying to follow, you know, the two greatest commandments: love God and love your neighbour as yourself. Capitalism just turns that completely upside-down: love yourself, then your neighbour, and then God (if you believe in Him, maybe).”
