A Modern Messiah
I came across an excellent column today (thanks, Scott) that perfectly illustrates how messianic motifs can be appropriated for a charismatic leader. I don't usually post on current events as I'm generally not really paying attention, spending my days lost in contemplation of ancient texts. This, however, is a perfect blend of religion and politics delivered in my favorite humor genre -- satire. It's definitely worth your time to read "He ventured forth to bring light to the world" by Gerard Baker.
