“Christianity..says the truth about the sacred, and thereby deprives it of its creative power, for better or for worse.” – Humans alone decide this”. Therein resides the world-historical rupture introduced by Christianity: now we know, and can no longer pretend that we don’t. And, as we have already seen, the impact of this knowledge is not only liberating, but deeply ambiguous: it also deprives society of the stabilizing role of scapegoating and thus opens up the space for violence not contained by any mythic limit. – SLAVOJ ZIZEK citing Dupuy http://ift.tt/1LOASqx
