Cavanaugh Kicks Serious (American) Butt

This past week, I dug up a couple of amazing Cavanaugh lectures that he delivered at the University of Melbourne a couple years back. In terms of theory, there's nothing really new that wasn't in Torture and Eucharist or Theopolitical Imagination, but he makes explicit the applications of that theory to America and the War on Terror--it's quite provocative and sometimes downright chilling. Plus, he's a pretty darn good speaker. (I love the name of the first link):
