Primitive Christianity Revived, Again
In my Quaker Journal I curate some videos I've published, wherein I talk about Quakerism, at least in two of them.
I was inspired by the recent book Quakernomics, in how it draws from The Iron Bridge, a work of science fiction (starring Quakers), for its insights.
I'm a big believer in science fiction giving us the headspace we need to actually usher in whatever future.
We all hope for a better one, but lets define "better" by comparing utopias and dystopias -- what science fiction is all about.
In having a specific past, I think Quakerism brings its own perspective. Conscientious objection is not a newly adopted tenet. The work camps Quakers provided, for alternative (nonmilitary) service, might help us paint a future. That's what I'm up to in these videos.
