Once again they discuss what it means to live in our modern-day world. They discuss our fixation w/ self-medication, technique, the burden of self-justification, and guys like Charles Taylor, Jacques Ellul, and Zygmunt Bauman-fun names to say, eh? These are deep thinkers who were insightful to step back and examine our modern world and how it is shaping us. There are promises of having a better life, of being a better you, of fill-in-the-blank that is going to make your life better and give you a more concrete and complete identity. But what if those promises are simply symptoms of something deeper and more sinister? What if they represent an incorrect view of the world that promise freedom but leads to tyranny instead? And if tyranny, how can we find freedom from it? That is what Travis and Alan talk about in today's episode of Apollos Watered!
