Let’s talk about the ethic that Donald Trump,Barack Obama and John Adams extol. The Judeo/Christian ethic was in its time revolutionary and in the vast majority of countries today it remains that way. Freedom, democracy, is more than an election of a government. Think of the failure of the Arab Spring. This ethic, which comes from the Hebrew Bible, teaches us that all life is sacred; all people are born with equal intrinsic value; there is no countenance for the caste system or the idea of dhimmitude. It calls for the freedom and the obligation to make individual choices (free–will) rather than merely sit back and submit to whatever fate is handed us by our society or its gods.
