    Timothy Snyder Speaks, ep. 5: Christianity and Christmas

    Timothy Snyder Speaks, ep. 5: Christianity and Christmas

    Too often these days invoking the name of Jesus or claiming Christian religion has become an escape from responsibility for plainly un-Christian behavior. Are Christians forgiven for everything because they find ways to blame others for their own actions? Perhaps the meaning of Christmas is something else, extending an idea of the good rather than defending what is plainly bad, and perhaps a Christmas greeting is a way to affirm others rather than claiming all righteousness for ourselves. Merry Christmas.

    Timothy Snyder Speaks, ep. 6: The Con of America First

    America First is not a foreign policy and it's not a domestic policy. It creates a vacuum of power filled by China, and a vacuum of values filled by Europe. It breaks the rules without proposing new ones. And so in the end puts Americans last.
