“When human beings try to become more than human, they become less than human.” –Rabbi Jonathan Sacks
Originally when I signed up for this date, I didn’t realize that it was Election Day. But then I realized that it was an apt quotation, given the state of our country. Will the people we elect honor our humanity, or will they degrade their own?
What does it mean to try to become more than human? I’d suggest it refers to those people who consider themselves “the elite”; they know better than the riff-raff of the country what the country needs. They know what is best for all of us as a people. They have no respect for America, describing our country as evil and decadent. They think they can transform people into “the right kind” of people, those who will give up everything that is important to them: the family unit, religion, American values, restraint in making changes, and that we will defer quietly to their decisions. They believe we are foolish enough to be tempted by bad ideas.
Those people are the leaders of the Left. They view us contemptuously, with scorn, and they believe the only thing we have to offer this country is obedience and manpower. We are merely cogs in their machine.
These people are human but they lack humanity.
We must take our country back.
