In the fifth episode of the weekly series of Marksism, Mark Tooley and Marc LiVecche discuss British historian Tom Holland’s Dominion: How the Christian Revolution Remade the World. Tom Holland argues that Christianity is triumphing around the world as ideas of human equality, compassion, and other Christian principles have saturated cultures around the world. Specifically, they address whether the Western ideas that have their roots in Christian thought can survive without Christian doctrine or without Christians following the faith. Daniel Strand’s review of Dominion is available here.
Tooley and LiVecche also talk about Tooley’s recent interview with Colin Dueck about the “new traditionalists,” and end by continuing their ongoing discussion of the removal of statues across the United States in the wake of the death of George Floyd.
