Country Topics / Auberon Waugh. Quoted in The Ambler.
|I include this because it is a reflection on democracy in relation to Christ. Waugh takes a very simplistic view, however. It is true that Christ was victimized by the mob and its leaders, and that his (spiritual) Resurrection confounds the mob; but this confounding is not its intent. Rather, the Resurrection is the means by which the mob comes to free itself from its own demonic impulses.|
