CONTENT WARNING - This episode includes discussion of gun violence. Listener discretion is advised. With the rash of mass shootings in the United States, including ones such as the El Paso, TX shooting linked to domestic terror, what is leading to these mass shooting incidents, and domestic terrorism generally? Jaye discusses a possible culprit, stochastic terrorism. What is stochastic terrorism, and can the violent rhetoric of politicians lead to radicalization and extremist violence? Jaye also examines the demagoguery of Donald Trump, and the appeal of Trump and gun culture to white evangelicals, and how evangelical support for both are connected.
