Chris Hedges reflects on the real meaning of Christmas. Hedges knows his Bible. The piece is deep, and addresses all, Believers or not, who would uplift the oppressed.
“The story of Christmas — like the story of the crucifixion, in which Jesus is abandoned by his disciples, attacked by the mob, condemned to death by the state, placed on death row and executed — is not written for the oppressors. It is written for the oppressed. And what is quaint and picturesque to those who live in privilege is visceral and empowering to those the world condemns.”
