SOLIDARITY & SUSTAINABILITY
"Solidarity & Sustainability" is a free, monthly research newsletter on
the social, economic, and ecological impacts of religious patriarchy.
The April 2006 issue has been posted:
Solidarity & Sustainability ~ Volume 2, Number 4, April 2006
The issue theme is "Mimetic Violence in Patriarchal Religions." René
Girard's mimetic theory is applied to the early formation of religious
traditions. It is shown how the patriarchal mindset (in both secular
and religious institutions) is rooted in violence and perpetuates
cultural and psychological obstacles to human development projects, such
as the United Nations' Millennium Development Goals. An scenario is
postulated on how to overcome such obstacles.
Any feedback is gratefully received. The May 2006 issue is in preparation.
