David Gornoski is a Christian libertarian writer, frequently featured at The American Conservative and Foundation for Economic Education. David takes inspiration from the work of the late Stanford professor Rene Girard, whose mimetic theory strongly influenced a young Peter Thiel. David's goal is to ground libertarianism in cultural anthropology, in particular by applying Girard's "scapegoat theory" to the modern state. Instead of allowing progressives to dominate arts, film, and literature, libertarians should become the storytellers—and show government for the villain it is.
