The Justinian Option


No transcript...

Ep 66: Dr Koontz and Rev Fisk follow up their series on collapse by discussing the rebuilding of civilization. In this episode they look at Emperor Justinian, the situations he dealt with as he came into power, and his efforts to rebuild the Roman Empire and promote the church. Alongside this they talk about the importance of self-criticism and focus, how the capacity to love and serve others is necessary in order to lead, and how who you are where you are matters.

Mentioned in this episode: The Institutes, by Justinian

A Brief History of Power
Every week Dr. Adam Koontz and Rev. Jonathan Fisk check their privilege against the backdrop of the wide and varied annals of history. You don‘t have to believe the Babel about the sons of Noah being a rosetta for understanding the postmodern global politic to agree that an intellectual dark web exists because history always rhymes, no matter what you try to do about it. You might not save the world by listening, citizen, but that doesn‘t mean you won‘t save someone. Because knowing is only the first half of the battle.
