(98) S6E6 Means and Ends: Fire with Fire
We begin looking at applying the idea of means and ends to real world actions. In this episode we discuss a shooting in a Texas church where an active shooter was killed by church security. We compare an armed Christian response to violence with the martyrdom of Polycarp and ask whether the means of killing enemies creates the types of ends for which we say we're aiming.
