- I do not mean to sit by the side lines as Western civilization is in a life of death or struggle for its very soul. The reason I do not write about this directly is because I write anyway that people ought to learn Torah. What is after all the basis of Western civilization? Respect for private property, freedom individualism, rule of law, not rule of connections, or ideology. All things in Torah. [That is limited authority to government and leaders. Just like the Constitution.]
But you do need the kind of synthesis of these values found in the Constitution of the USA.
There are lots of tribalistic, superstitious, zero-sum mindset hasidic communities that live only off of charity that supposedly follow Torah. Obviously something is wrong with them
