The Hollow Lands, Part II

The Hollow Lands, Part II

“In the end, local solutions—multiplied by thousands—can become national solutions—if they are allowed to trickle up. It might be that the healing that will come will begin quietly, unspectacularly, when more people refuse to give up and move on even when that’s the reasonable thing to do; even in places the world doesn’t know exist: places like the hollows of these mountains.”

Expanding the Conversation

  • Matthew Loftus clarifies and calls out the increasingly fraught lines of (American) Christian opinion on social justice, race and police brutality.
  • "If we win our independence, is that a guarantee of freedom for our descendants? Or will the blood we shed begin an endless cycle of vengeance and death with no defendants?” Jordan Ballor and Eric Hutchinson quote Hamilton and talk about the political necessity of forgiveness—in marriages and in nations.
  • Zaid Jilani argues that seeing African Americans, or Muslims, or Jews, as part of victimized minority collectives is a toxic formulation that ensures that they are never treated fairly as individuals—and denies them the ability to exercise real power.
