In this epic piece, Rebel Wisdom looks at the deeper religious and theological forces playing out below the surface of our day-to-day conflicts over topics like vaccines, authoritarianism, and safety.

It features interviews with the cognitive scientist John Vervaeke, Unherd writer Mary Harrington, the author Paul Kingsnorth, emergency doctor Rocky Jedick and many more.
We have recently launched the Rebel Wisdom Substack for all our written content, and to host exclusive videos for members (just $5). The full-length conversations with John, Mary & Rocky are available there for subscribers: https://substack.com/rebelwisdom
