The Religious Wars of the Pandemic Endgame | Rebel Wisdom

1

One of the biggest problems with talking about something as vast and impactful as the pandemic is to find the right level of analysis. 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. We pull apart the hidden religiosity of "both sides" of the pandemic, which seems to be accelerating, even as the rapid spread of the Omicron variant brings us towards the pandemic endgame.

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
