I'm finding more information on the scapegoat philosophy that I was referring to earlier. An old 'Thought for the day' reminds me of how cruel we can be using the media to crush people and remove their dignity. There are some interesting relfections relating to humanity's scapegoating of Jesus on the cross at 'Girardian Reflections on the Lectionary' which give us an idea of Girard's theory. There's also a great interview and summary of his work at Touchstone archives.
