    We look at why the George Floyd protests used so much religious imagery. From kneeling and chanting to contrition and acts of communion, the protests used catharsis as a means to a form of religious ecstasy, which was made more intense because of the Covid-19 lockdown. We even look at the trope of Human Sacrifice appearing in the narrative.

    Vesper Stamper is an author, she has written a novel called What the Night Sings and is getting ready to publish her second novel, A Cloud of Outrageous Blue. Thinkspot organized this discussion for us where we could discuss the current moment. We talk about Covid, the protests and the strange pseudo-religious actions we have seen in the last week.

    We look at the symbolism of protest and riots, how they manifest an aspect of the pattern of reality. We also look at instances in the Bible where grumbling and protest bring about different reactions and how this shows us the positive and negative aspect of the pattern.
