Sample text

Derber, The Wilding of America, p. 14-5) “Criminologists Fox and Levin define sociopaths as ‘self-centered, manipulative, possessive, envious, reckless, and unreliable. They demand special treatment and inordinate attention, often exaggerating their own importance... ’... A sociopathic society is one, like the Ik, marked by a collapse of moral order resulting from the breakdown of community and the failure of institutions responsible for inspiring moral vision and creating and enforcing robust moral codes.

Tsedaka is another example of ‘how to become rich while having less’. Midrash Tanhuma states that ‘Tsedaka tatsil mimavet’, charity avoids death, literally or figuratively as it saves us from the anguish of death. Can we imagine any companies, which instead of slandering their opponents would try to be charitable? If so, could they survive?

Yet only a generation ago, keeping a vow was the norm in our society. Those who would not keep their word were shunned by those around them and few people would do business with them. I doubt that most of our grandparents knew anyone who had gone bankrupt or even defaulted on a loan to a local merchant. Debtors’ prisons were still in operation as late as the 1920s in America, and divorce lawyers would have had a hard time earning a living in our grandparents’ day... What our society needs is a good dose of biblical ethic from God’s people – the kind of ethic that requires us to keep our word no matter what the costs.
